  1. [ubuntu] Re: Isolation related computer problems - LOL

    There were cases where a Ryzen machine simply would not start without a BIOS upgrade. AMD had a program where they would loan pre Ryzen AM4 CPUs to Ryzen purchasers so they could install the loaner...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Isolation related computer problems - LOL

    There are often all sorts of dire warnings about not updating BIOS unless necessary but you NEED to update your BIOS. Each motherboard manufacturer is different. In my case - ASROCK - I was able to...

    Re: Extended Support: Livepatch

    I found problems with a GeForce 210 card and suspend. It would suspend fine when using the open source driver, it wouldn't resume though. It would act like it was going to resume but never displayed...

    Re: How do I do Linux?

    I might suggest looking at a couple other distros as well. Linux Mint and Zorin. Both are oriented toward people used to 'classic' Windows with the start menu. Both are based on Ubuntu so share the...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Partition help for full install on USB drive

    I'm barely literate about this stuff but I'm pretty sure you want a small (100MB?) FAT32 partition on any drive you plan to install as UEFI. I generally make that FAT partition first then ext4 or...

    Re: Extended Support: Livepatch

    Any reason to not upgrade the video card? That can be done pretty cheap with Ebay pulls, around $12 or so. Other issues? Personal taste here, I'm having good luck with a few years old AMD/ATI video...
  8. Re: Remove multiple clicks needed to shut down

    There may be an extension that will do what you want - "Bring Out Submenu of Power Off/Logout Button". I have a keyboard shortcut on my desktop using the 'pause' key. Couple the pause key to this...
  9. Re: Adding a Second Router to Home Network

    I'm doing this with 2 netgear routers - close but not the same model. Both are running DD-WRT. The second router is also my wifi access point. I have Verizon FiOS with ethernet from the ONT. My...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: hd may be failing - need help with analysis

    If indeed the existing disk is PATA as it appears, commonly available SATA SSDs don't work. OP would need a PATA SSD. The largest PATA SSD I could find on Amazon is 128 GB. and cost $84. They make...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Multi function laser printer recomendations?

    In a situation like that you don't really have a lot of choice. The tech probably didn't have a script for Linux, he/she DID have a script for Windows. It's possible that techs are tired or...

    [SOLVED] Re: ET-2600 won't scan with Ubuntu

    VueScan is excellent. The error message meant that the jpeg image could not be saved. I had a somewhat similar problem with the gscan2pdf app, it would scan but wouldn't save. Log out and log back in...

    Re: PC freeze - AMD CPU

    This probably won't help but it doesn't cost anything to try and shouldn't break anything irrecoverably I don't think. No guarantees though. When you log on, you should see a little round thing in...
  14. Re: Do security issues exist on 2nd-hand computer after Erase Disc install?

    Now that you have it set up I don't know if I'd do it now but I've run DBAN (Darik's Boot and Nuke) on hard drives of uncertain history. I gather DBAN is not optimal for SSDs. Here's an article about...
  15. [xubuntu] Re: Is it possible? Clone a Windows 10 to an SSD in the same machine?

    A SATA 3 drive should work without issue in a SATA 2 machine. The SSD will run at SATA 2 speed, I'd suspect it'll be faster than a mechanical drive even running at SATA 2 speeds.

    Have you search in these forums for your printer model? Sometimes someone else has solved what you're trying to do. If you can't find anything useful, here's something to consider. Some printers...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: File Permissions Issue on Portable Drive

    Probably not the best solution but I format removable media FAT32 as long as the files are not larger than 4 GB. No permissions issues, I don't know if there are any security considerations.

    As far as I know, AMD has discontinued their proprietary Linux drivers. My understanding is that there are two AMD drivers, both available in the repositories. Older cards use the Radeon driver,...

    Re: What happens if my main drive dies?

    For irreplaceables like this, I'd want more than one backup, perhaps one in the 'cloud'.

    [xubuntu] Re: how did Skype work in Firefox?

    According to the link below, you can do the age-old user agent trick. I have no idea if it works. You could also install a secondary Chromium based browser. I have Vivaldi installed for those web...
  22. Re: Updationg from 18.04 to 20.04 completely ruined my displays

    I think the recommended way to upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04 would have been to disable the proprietary Nvidia driver first. Usually the recommendation when upgrading in place is to disable any...

    Not Ubuntu (exactly) but if you're looking for 'real' desktop, have you looked at Cinnamon? It's the desktop in in Linux Mint. I haven't used it much but it sure felt like 'classic' Windows from what...
