  1. [ubuntu] Re: Can I install WordPress for local-only use on a normal desktop?

    Thanks so much for your help! I shall try to do all of this over the next couple of days, or maybe the weekend.

    If I have further questions, I'll post again.
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Can I install WordPress for local-only use on a normal desktop?

    Thank you. That makes it clearer.

    I've actually done something like this before, so it looks familiar to me.

    I don't know what goes in those files. I'm starting to worry that I've bitten off...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Can I install WordPress for local-only use on a normal desktop?

    I had thought of a VM, but I hadn't thought of Docker precisely because I don't understand how Docker works. I've tried looking it up, but everything that I found seems to be aimed towards someone...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Can I install WordPress for local-only use on a normal desktop?

    Thank you! I'll try it and see what happens.
  5. [ubuntu] Can I install WordPress for local-only use on a normal desktop?

    I hope that this is the right forum for my query.

    Explanation of what I want


    I have a few websites hosted by GoDaddy
    The websites are independent of each other (each has its own domain...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: I can't get "Character Map" in gedit to work

    A fix has been applied. I don't know how to get the latest gedit, though. There doesn't seem to be a PPA for it.

    [SOLVED] Re: Recovery menu is a mess on-screen

    I didn't know that! Yes, Esc works for me.

    I won't bother worrying about the configuration; it's too much hassle. I'll press Esc as you suggest.

    Thank you!
  8. Re: How does the new malformed URL prefix phishing tactic work?

    I went into Windows, and realised that there was precious little to test! Very few people on Windows are going to open the link in a PowerShell.
    Also, these days, there aren't many popular browsers...

    [SOLVED] Recovery menu is a mess on-screen

    Ever since I installed Ubuntu 20.04, the Recovery Mode menu has had a bunch of messages overwriting it. I've attached a screenshot.

    The menu still works, but of course reading the individual items...
  10. How does the new malformed URL prefix phishing tactic work?

    According to several reports, there's a new phishing tactic that makes use of malformed URL prefixes.

    Instead of using http:// or https://, the URLs begin with http:/\ or https:/\.

    I am...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Bash: How to fool an app into thinking that it's writing to stdout?

    I hadn't considered that, but no, it doesn't go to stderr. Thanks for the idea.
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Bash: How to fool an app into thinking that it's writing to stdout?

    Ah. That should have been obvious to me! Thanks
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Bash: How to fool an app into thinking that it's writing to stdout?

    Thank you! That's pretty good. Some fields have spaces, but fortunately flatpak uses tabs to separate columns, so the following works well:

    flatpak list | column -t -s $'\t'
    It still excludes the...
  14. [ubuntu] Bash: How to fool an app into thinking that it's writing to stdout?

    I have a bit of a problem. I want to access the output from flatpak and parse it in a Bash script.

    Here are the first lines of output that I want:

    $ flatpak list

  15. Re: Linux's heyday for desktop and laptop was January 2020.

    That's correct, Android runs on Linux. But many of the Linux commands are shared with its sister, Unix, so if you tried them on Unix, you might find the same success!

    Here are the most popular OS...
  16. Re: Linux's heyday for desktop and laptop was January 2020.

    That made me laugh!

    Hmm, I think that most people coming to Linux come via a larger distro such as Ubuntu (for ease of use I came via Ubuntu for that very reason). Ubuntu 20.04 takes close to...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: I can't get "Character Map" in gedit to work

    Thank you. I've raised this as a bug report on gedit. Please would you give a "thumbs up" to the report.

    [all variants] Re: * no longer a wild card in apt?

    This is important. Always quote your wildcards when using apt, dpkg, etc.

    Example: I have a file called fontana.odt. When I run dpkg-query --list font*, instead of getting a list of installed...
  19. [SOLVED] I can't get "Character Map" in gedit to work

    A rather old answer shows how to use Character Map in gedit. It certainly used to work, as evidenced by a comment that I myself made to the answer.

    However, I can no longer get it to work.

    When...

    [all variants] Re: * no longer a wild card in apt?

    No extra packages required. dpkg-query is installed by default.

    Your query doesn't need grep, though: The following two commands will do the same thing.

    dpkg --list '*5.4.0-62*'
    dpkg-query...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: How to I revert back to an earlier version of Gimp -EXIF data problem with latest

    @deadflowr is correct. You can remove gimp-data, because the flatpak version comes with its own dependencies, which are independent of the DEB (apt) versions. I have no DEB gimp apps installed. (I've...
  22. [SOLVED] Re: How to I revert back to an earlier version of Gimp -EXIF data problem with latest

    To add to what @Dennis N said, to see all packages, you'd need three commands:

    apt list --installed 'gimp*' # Display all packages installed with DEB.
    flatpak list | fgrep gimp # Display all...
  23. [SOLVED] Re: How to I revert back to an earlier version of Gimp -EXIF data problem with latest

    Good to know. Once the fix makes its way into the stable release, I would advise removing the beta version and installing the stable release, unless you're happy to continue to test the beta version....
  24. [ubuntu] Re: How do I change/customize theme font color in the Files app?

    You might want to look at installing an alternative theme. There are many themes available, but it's hard to find exactly what you want.

    I'll describe the steps below.

    No, that's unsafe. You...
  25. [SOLVED] Re: How to I revert back to an earlier version of Gimp -EXIF data problem with latest

    The first link that you gave is incorrect. Here's the corrected link.

    Unfortunately, it seems that the only way to install an older version is to uninstall the version that you have, download the...
