  1. [xubuntu] Re: what program does Ctrl+Alt+Shift+R run in Gnome be default?

    Did you know that some of the questions here are posted by people who know even less than I do? Not the case here...

  2. [xubuntu] Re: what program does Ctrl+Alt+Shift+R run in Gnome be default?

    You might want to look at SimpleScreenRecorder - it can be set up to respond to a 'hot key', using pre-configured options. I suspect there are more choices, but that's the only one I've used.

    I am not an expert on this situation, but I do know that I wouldn't attempt to answer without more information. Such as - is the machine you wish to do this on UEFI capable? Was the Kubuntu install...

  6. Re: For how long are you using your External HDD ? Which brand is it ?

    I'm a bit of the old-school type as well - which means that along with the fact that they have never (yet) failed me I have USB2.0 externals. 2 of them are Seagate 2Tb 'Expansion Desk' drives, from...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Looking for command line ScreenShot package

    I also get the screenshot, usually with PrintScreen (or CTRL-PrtScrn for selected area shots) and then resize afterwards. With ImageMagick all I need to do to shrink file size appropriately (which...

    After a symlink (soft link) is created, only a redirect exists by that name in the original location. All file interactions actually occur in the new destination location.

    Re: Advantages of 18.04 over 16.04

    I'm not sure that an answer here would help directly, as your particular machine/setup may differ too much. I would just try a couple of alternatives in 'Live' mode to see how they handle the...

    Looking good - again! What I worry about (a bit) is what Wayland will do to conky - or whether it will be addressed by the conky devs. However, in the meantime we just keep tweaking what works now!

  14. Re: Ubuntu 19.04 Frequently Freezing for some apps -- seems amdgpu related

    No expertise here - but is there any chance that wayland crept into use on your system? You could check the 'cog' at your next login to be sure - or
