    [ubuntu] Re: need a more complicated cut command

    The danger is that things can subtly screw up due to unexpected errors/funny characters somewhere in the data file and you won't know it screwed up, until other people start to complain. You said...

    [ubuntu] Re: need a more complicated cut command

    I think that you should start by calculating a checksum for each record, so that after you shuffled the data, you can verify that the records are still correct and that nothing ended up shifted to a...

    [ubuntu] Re: Latop keeps freezing

    Linux is the same difference.

    The best solution is usually just to hunt around for another distribution that works properly on your hardware. Underneath the various Linux distributions are all...
  4. [kubuntu] Re: Can no longer get a capital "v" in Kubuntu 18.04

    This is a weird bug in X. Set the V key combination using xev and xmodmap. A little googling will get you going again.

    Re: Problems uninstalling Ubuntu

    Howdy,

    Vista... that must have been the saddest version of Windows, ever. The problem with your very old computer is that it won't run the latest version of either Windows or Linux properly - it...

    Re: HP Laptop cant install other OS!!!

    Install Virtualbox or Gnome Boxes, create a virtual machine and install Windows in that.

    Then, you can run Windows in a window, the way the computer gods intended.

    [lubuntu] Re: Password Manager KeePassXC

    The password database is encrypted. You can keep it anywhere. Google docs, Dropbox or your own file server is convenient to access from any device.
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Tp Link usb device slower than Windows 10

    With Wifi, it is generally best to get a proper Linux compatible USB dongle. Edimax widgets come packaged with a friendly Linux penguin on the wrapper and will save you many a head-ache since the...

    [lubuntu] Re: Why doesn't this bash dscipt work

    Note that with a backup script, it is usually better to select most everything and then exclude more specific things. The script will then be mostly maintenance free over time.
  12. [ubuntu] Re: A few questions from an old Linux guy returning.

    Howdy,

    I think that laptop can run anything.

    Re: Ubuntu/Windows7

    If you dabble with Linux/BSD a lot and you don't have a convenient wired connection, then get a Wifi Extender with an ethernet port. You can then plug into that until you get the on-board WiFi to...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Wayland freezes when video is played on VLC

    In my experience (I pretty much do military video streaming for a living), VLC is just plain terrible and best avoided.

    [xubuntu] Re: Electronic Design Software

    The best free program is probably Eagle. The help files on the Sparkfun web site are very good.

    The advantage is that you can upgrade to the full version once your project outgrows the free one...

    Re: 19.04 lag brief freezing

    Jitter and lag is normally caused by the video device driver and FFMPEG/Gstreamer installation.

    Run the FFMPEG 'gears' to test things.

    I used nullmailer in the past. Super simple.

    There are a few others that are similar.

    Those other things that were mentioned aren't really file systems...

    Considering all the horrid bugs in Windows RDP, you really, really should consider changing to SSH. Windows 10 now has SSH support built in.

    Re: Voice to Text in Chromium Not Working

    If you are getting old/blind/deaf - we all do eventually - then an Apple Macbook is best. On Linux, the accessibility support is sorely lacking.
