  1. Re: Problems with ubuntu 20.04 graphics drivers

    That doesn't particularly sound like a graphics driver issue to me.

    If I were to hazard a guess, that sounds much more like out of RAM.

    Re: New Laptop Considerations

    Mine's an older model, so the one thing I'd prefer were different on mine - the 16:9 screen - they already changed for this year's model. Having the webcam at the bottom was also a questionable...

    Re: New Laptop Considerations

    From what you've said, it sounds like you're considering the XPS 13 developer edition. It's the same as the rest of the XPS 13s, just with Ubuntu. They need to call it something. It's an ultrabook...

    Re: Microsoft vai comprar Ubuntu ?

    If the community were keeping it going because Canonical had spontaneously combusted, it would probably still be called Ubuntu. If it was a hard fork because Canonical had swerved evil for some...
  5. Re: How do I install the proprietary AMD video drivers in Ubuntu 20.04

    fglrx is most definitely dead. Why do you feel that you need to use a proprietary driver at all?

    [ubuntu] Re: Create app shortcut to login screen?

    An approach that would probably work would be to set up single-application user accounts, that when logged into would autostart that application. Optionally locked down to only be able to run that...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Problem with choppy videos (youtube, vlc...)

    Browsers haven't had hardware accelerated video decoding until recently. If your CPU is weak it won't be able to keep up when doing it in software.

    There have been builds of Chromium that are able...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: My Conky doesn't honour use_xft = true until I open and save it

    I've not seen that, but there have been things in the past where conky gets in a pickle because it's starting before the window manager has finished setting things up. The suggestion then is to stick...
  9. Re: installer does not let me use user name "admin"

    Exactly so. The user gets a group of the same name, and admin is already taken. You'd probably also cause yourself problems by trying to call your user "cdrom," "plugdev," or "sambashare."
  10. Re: System crash, mouse and keyboard freezes

    That doesn't really say thermal to me. Going increasingly slowly as it throttles followed by a shutdown are the symptoms that you'd expect to see if it were overheating.

    No, it's Wine, which you've installed to run Windows software. bionic main

  13. Re: LUBUNTU Closing Windows and after restarting Lubuntu hour is changed to less 2:30

    This forum is a text-based communication method, and we're all using different desktop environments, different versions, different themes. Of course we're going to provide commands that users can...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: .desktop file wont work and it's driving me insane!

    There's a command that I can't remember off the top of my head for refreshing the cache of icons used for launchers, but I believe logging out and logging back in has the same effect. You can either...

  16. Re: Frustration over Linux's time-consuming issues

    I didn't.

    I didn't mind Windows. I'd used it for a while. I was reasonably comfortable with making it do stuff. I tried Ubuntu out of curiosity and immediately saw that Ubuntu was superior. I...

    [SOLVED] Re: How do I add a new ssd to my PC?

    The term that you're after to help you find what you want is mounting, which means to attach the filesystem contained on that drive to somewhere in the filesystem tree.

  18. [ubuntu] Re: Xserver settings don't persist after logout/reboot

    Most desktop environments have a setting for automatically running things when you log in.
  19. [SOLVED] Re: .desktop file wont work and it's driving me insane!

    I think you need the full path to the executable in the Exec line. The Path line is for telling the executable where its files are rather than for finding the executable file in the first place. It's...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: Xserver settings don't persist after logout/reboot

    Bear in mind that I don't use Gnome and I don't use multiple monitors.

    It doesn't, really.

  21. [ubuntu] Re: Killer E2200 Gigabit Ethernet controller in Ubuntu 20.04

    That's a Qualcomm (who have, at best, spotty support for Linux) Atheros with Killer's own non-standard stuff slathered over the top, which they specifically disclaim from supporting on Linux.

  22. Re: Which laptop would be better for Ubuntu

    Ryzen is the better choice. The integrated graphics are stronger and, although some tasks are difficult to parallelise, the Ryzens have better single-threaded performance too, now. More cores also...
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Why can't I add to the Startup Appications?
