    [SOLVED] Re: ethernet wont connect

    There was an issue with some RealTek ethernet drivers in 20.04 when it first came out. I had just purchased a new mother board that had a RealTek 8169H ethernet chip. RealTek 8169 had been supported...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Question about typing issue on Ubuntu and Wayland vs X.org

    Interesting. I've been using Wayland exclusively on 20.04 with no problem. I guess there's something in 21.04 that Wayland doesn't like.

    [SOLVED] Re: Can i install ubuntu to a new Disk?

    Re: Firefox Snap as Default in 21.10

  7. Re: Just got my first Linux computer last night.......

    Yes it is. One of the differences between Windows and Ubuntu is that Ubuntu or any Linux distro responds to security issues by patching the underlying flaw rather than relying on antivirus and the...
  8. Re: Ubuntu 20.04.03 Ethernet adapter Wired cable unplugged

    I have an inexpensive TP-Link ethernet-USB adapter for just such occasions. I know it's plug and play. If the built-in ethernet port doesn't work I'll try the USB-ethernet adapter. If the USB adapter...
  9. Re: Just got my first Linux computer last night.......

    I would certainly make a USB installer for 20.04. Going thru the 14.04 -> 16.04 -> 18.04 -> 20.04 upgrades may work but I'd be prepared for glitches just in case. It really doesn't take long to do a...

    [ubuntu] Re: Canon LIDE 400 scanner problems

    Second VueScan. When we bought it we bought the Standard Edition, it was around 2015 I think. After some years the Standard Edition would no longer work. I didn't pursue why that was the case, the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Printing Issues

    Hello Jack

    I'm certainly no expert but have a couple thoughts. First I would see if I had the app "system-config-printer" installed. If not, I'd install it from the repository. Launch it and see...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: i've installed Ubuntu 21.04, but i don't have internet.

    If the above suggestions don't help, you could try a USB ethernet dongle. I have one because I was concerned about internal NIC support on a new motherboard. I did try it and it worked as expected. I...
