    Re: LVM error

    It should have been:


    sudo lvextend --resizefs -L 20G /dev/ubuntu-vg/ubuntu-lv

    Run it again, with the --resizefs option included.

    [ubuntu] Re: Resizing boot partition

    Looking at your revised figures, 40 GB is enough for a root partition. You could probably do fine with 50 GB for home as well. My whole system is set up in 25 GB of space. If you agree, you could use...

    Not so hard. Use gparted, delete the 3rd partition. Resize 2nd partition to the size you want. Make a new ESP after it. If Ubuntu is the only OS, the ESP can be 100 mB. Then reinstall.

    After opening the printers dialog, did you click the ADD button? Then it does a search for your printer.

    [ubuntu] Re: HPLIP Does Not Install

    Have you tried Settings > Printers, where you can add your printer to the system? There is an automatic search for correct driver which is then installed for you.
  14. Re: What is the gsettings schema for Settings > Universal Access > Sounds Keys

    Use the Settings Dialog, not dconf-editor:
    Settings > Universal Access > Seeing> Sound Keys > On/Off

    To find Settings Dialog, type 'Settings' in overview screen search.

    Re: Package Count

    Synaptic Package Manager also informs you of the number of installed packages.
    Ubuntu Gnome 18.04 - 2095 packages installed, 63,933 listed.
    Obviously, the number is going to vary.

    Re: grub2 configuration for multibooting

    Just a tip: Most Ubuntu users don't use this syntax. The more common syntax that does the same thing and is easier to remember is sudo update-grub. Try it in the future.
