    Re: Today's update broke the GUI

    I opened a bug report about this:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntu-meta/+bug/1911614

    I like to use synaptic package manager to remove such things as unwanted kernels. Step one,...
  2. Re: System boots to flashing cursor with latest apt update

    No, it's not. The Ubuntu images have the HWE version of linux-generic installed by default. It only became apparent when the 5.8 series kernel rolled out. The other flavors are not effected:

  3. [SOLVED] Re: Why is ubuntu booting into an old kernel by default?

    I filed a bug report:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntu-meta/+bug/1911614

    More subscribers and marking it as effecting you too will turn up the heat. No heat - no fix.
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Why is ubuntu booting into an old kernel by default?

    I'm still gathering data as time allows. This appears to be limited to Ubuntu only. I didn't check all of the flavors but for Ubuntu MATE, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and Lubuntu have linux-generic on their...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Why is ubuntu booting into an old kernel by default?

    In deed. I checked the .iso manifests this morning and both 20.04 and 20.04.1 show linux-generic-hwe-20.04, but the Beta shows linux-generic. This was clearly a mistake based on all the support...

    I'm reasonably certain that this was a screw-up. Besides the link I included with my message to ubuntu-release this link reaffirms that:

    I asked about this at ubuntu-release:

    That was the 9th, in the wee hours of the morning. So far no response. I maintain...

    [ubuntu] Re: system became unusable after update

    I maintain a fairly large number of PC's and I've gotten about 25 calls today. In my case most because of broken Broadcom wifi drivers. I'm really steamed that they jumped from the 5.4 version kernel...

    [ubuntu] Re: system became unusable after update

    Try booting an earlier (older) kernel. To display grub boot menu either press (and hold) Esc (for EFI systems) or Shift (for non-EFI systems) right at the moment the BIOS screen disappears. Then...

    Re: What's wrong with printers?

    I used to use a local "copy-center" for my printing. It was much cheaper for the very limited amount of printing I did even then. Now I seldom need to print more than a few pages every three to four...

    Re: What's wrong with printers?

    Check out the reviews for the appropriate ink cartridges for each printer. I've so far stuck with HP, but HPLIP support seems to have slipped quite a bit so I frequently have to rely on my one Win 10...

    Re: Anyone using MS Edge Dev for Linux?

    I think Microsoft is ever-so-slowly becoming more open to FOSS as an ally rather than a foe that must be conquered. Then again maybe I'm just an optimist :)

    Re: Anyone using MS Edge Dev for Linux?

    I haven't tried it in Linux yet but I've set up Edge browser in a few Win 10 PC's and I find it almost indistinguishable from Chrome after importing everything from an existing Chrome browser. I've...

    Re: My mobo died :(

    The biggest problem I've encountered in such a situation is if the new mobo is UEFI and the old mobo was not. In that case there is no real option other than to start with a fresh install and...

    BTW, don't share you address or other personal info on the forum! If you decide you want some of these sticks of RAM click on my userID (kansasnoob) and select private message.
  19. Re: laptop from 2006, 1GB RAM, use for watching Youtube, what are my options?

    I personally think it would be well worth upgrading to 2GB RAM if you could get someone to find a matched set of 1GB sticks on Ebay or something of that nature.

    But even with 1GB you may be able...
  20. Re: Taskbars missing in Gnome Flashback on 20.04

    It typically doesn't need to be added directly into startup apps so I'd first try:


    sudo dpkg-reconfigure gnome-panel

    Then either reboot or logout and back in. If the output of that command...

  23. [SOLVED] Re: Using Nemo in Flashback session - no wallpaper

    Thanks. That's certainly a thought. Since as it is I seem to be getting the splash screen I've even considered changing that ............. something in 'plymouth' I think????
  24. [all variants] Re: Call for testing the current daily Groovy iso files

    The latest daily seems to have my Latitude's sorted out. First boot OK, second boot OK, and trying in yet another laptop it's still good so I'd call that "sorted out".
  25. [ubuntu_mate] Re: Live USB displays grub boot menu even on non-uefi machines

    That's a bit worrisome to me. Some of these older Intel boards I'm using offer the UEFI boot option but it's such an early version of UEFI it's really just junk. Like DG43xx and DB43xx which are...
