    Some of the common applications like LibreOffice, Gimp, Inkscape, Krita, Kate, Audacity, Kdenlive, Firefox, Cheese and many more have Flatpak and/or Snap versions. I use several of these Flatpak and...

    [ubuntu] Re: GRUB Woes

    It's done with changing permissions of files in /etc/grub.d

    Most important is to make 30_os-prober non-executable.
    For strictly custom menu entries only, you can do the same with 10_linux and...

    [SOLVED] Re: Simple Paint like program

    Not really - It depends on what you already have installed. I did say "on my Ubuntu system". Lubuntu releases after 18.04 use LXQt and some KDE packages by default, so some of what is needed is...

    Re: gedit no menu

    By menu, do you mean 'menu bar'? Mate 16.04 applications were mostly gtk2 based and had menu bars. Newer gedit is a gtk3 application and doesn't have a menu bar anymore in accordance with modern...

    Re: How to get tiles in file upload menu?

    That upload dialog is not part of Nautilus. It's the gtk file chooser. I don't think you can show thumbnails (what you are calling 'tiles') in that except for the preview pane.

    Aside from your password problem, you no longer need to add the i386 architecture. 64-bit systems support it by default. Verify with this command:

  18. Re: FSArchiver LVM restore fails to boot - what did I miss?

    This may apply to your situation:

    If you rename a volume group, the initramfs on startup is still using the old volume group designation in the device name for all LVs in the VG. They won't boot....
