    Re: Using 10.04 now?

    Lubuntu 18.04 LTS still has some support time left. It's nice and light, and LXDE is capable of being quite beautiful while staying out of your way.
  2. Re: What is your fav DE (desktop environment) or WM (window managers)

    I'm a big fan of LXDE. It's insanely fast on modern hardware and it gets out of my way when I want to get something done. It's also easy to modify and make it look good.

    Re: Using 10.04 now?

    Doesn't that computer have at least 4 GB of RAM and an i5? I just looked it up. It'll run a modern OS just fine and actually be secure.

    Re: I mean, why though?

    I'll try it. I'll try it for the same reason I first started to use Linux - because I like to try new things and pick what works best for me.

    Re: New Ugly Facebook

    Nope! Not all! ;-)

    I've never even had a FB account. I thought about signing up when they first opened to the public, but decided I didn't have any reason to do so. So, I didn't. Life goes on...

    Re: I can't view my passwords

    Also of note: Chromium sometimes has issues logging in and syncing in the same manner that Google Chrome does. My understanding is that's due to Chromium not having all the same internals as the...

    Re: Can I get windows or my files back?

    Note: Never click 'yes', 'continue', 'submit', press the 'enter button' in a terminal window, etc. without knowing exactly how the computer is going to interpret the input. Always keep current...
  8. Re: [Lubuntu] First time Linux user; having troubling booting on an old machine

    Along with nomodeset, as bashing mentioned above, there's 'noapic' that can be selected during the boot process for a live USB. I've seen adding that option get rid of similar installation issues.
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Computer completely hangs while watching Youtube

    This might be easier than you think.

    Open the affected browsers, navigate to their settings page, and check to see if "Hardware Acceleration" is enabled.

    If it is enabled, disable it and...

    [SOLVED] Re: Simple voice recording on ubuntu

    2nd vote for Audacity. It's trivial to learn and use, but has great capabilities. It's small enough for making quick voice recordings. It's already in the repo and can be installed with apt.

    If...

    Re: Ubuntu 18 aesthetics

    It's where they store stuff like the descriptor, master file tables, logs, and stuff like that. So, the space isn't available for you.

    That's my understanding.

    Re: what is your flavor?

    I am not a fan of LXQT. So, when 18.04 goes EOL, I'll sign up for the extended support. I'll ride that train for as long as I can, and then I'll make the switch. There are other distros with LXDE and...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Do I miss something if I only use Ubuntu instead of Windows?

    I haven't needed to use Windows since around 2007. I'm pretty grateful for that. I miss out on nothing and can accomplish all my goals easily (usually more easily) with Linux.

    [ubuntu] Re: internal network up, internet down.

    I'll toss this into the mix, as it may help.

    I've found NordVPN flaky at times. I'll lose my connection to the outside world, disconnect NordVPN with 'nordvpn d', and all is well. I reconnect and...

    Re: Image converter program.

    If you're interested in XnConvert, you can also just get XnViewMP and it has batch processing. It's closed source, but free for personal use (as mentioned above). I use it frequently and it actually...

    Re: Wireguard at home question

    In many ways, it will be similar. It won't have various end-points and your public IP address will be that of the server at your home. This negates a lot of the reasons people use an VPN for, but it...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: Jack - suddenly lost sound from my browser.

    I forget how, but they like it if you mark the thread solved.

    Glad you got it sorted - and many sound issues can be resolved by poking around in pavucontrol. In my experience, adding JACK to the...

    Re: what is your flavor?

    Lubuntu. I have modern hardware, but I like the simplicity and versatility.
  19. [SOLVED] Re: Jack - suddenly lost sound from my browser.

    I'd run "pavucontrol" and check to see if anything is muted. If it's not installed, install it with "sudo apt install pavucontrol".
  20. [ubuntu] Re: 20.04 LTS installed - Have questions to prep for Halium development

    Concerning the above, unless you have a very good reason, update all the files. So, just...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: How to boot with non-responding keyboard at the password prompt

    The other day, to help someone's confidence level, I remarked that we'd all lost data before and that it was a chance to learn something new, like good backup practices.

    Today, I'm not sure it's a...

    Not too long ago, I had the same issue. I spent hours on it and concluded that it was actually dead. Some USB thumb drives/storage devices will put themselves in 'read-only' mode when they become...
  23. Re: looking for free web email provider alternative to gmail

    If you don't mind the Russians, Yandex has free email hosting for your own domain. It's quite robust and IIRC it's "unlimited" in many ways - like account numbers and disk space.
  24. Re: What did I do? Was running fine but no no boot "error no such partition"

    I once cost my own company tens of thousands of dollars by losing data. That's not the worst. The worst was of little dollar value and was a bunch of personal files - including photographs.

    These...
  25. Re: What did I do? Was running fine but no no boot "error no such partition"

    Pretty much everyone hoses a pile of data at one point. Everyone here (probably) has done similar.

    The important thing is to use this as a learning experience. Learn good backup strategy and never...
