    Re: APT now installs SNAPS ?

    Actually, I was referring to snaps not debs where the choice existed. I have proprietary software running that doesn't supply a snap, plus I only use current development Ubuntu versions. It keeps my...

    Re: APT now installs SNAPS ?

    i'm switching my hirsute to impish at the end of this week and plan to go all snaps just to satisfy my own curiosity. I'm interested in the viability of all of this. May let you know what I find. I...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: nautilus only opens files in /home folder

    I use 21.04 (at least for the next two days) and I have "show sidebar" checked off but I don't remember doing that. I have access to root files under the conditions stated in post #2. Seems to me...

    Re: snap should be dropped in desktop versions

    I give up! This discussion sounds a little like discussions held years ago about whether Ubuntu should abandon the CD install disk and switch to a DVD Install. Or abandon Gnome 2 Desktop and go with...

    I have been using the same false birthday on the internet every since the computer was invented and we were using bulletin boards because we didn't have the internet. I get Happy Birthday emails from...

    [ubuntu] Re: Shutdown hang (hirsute)

    Re: Advice on Wayland?

    I've been using Wayland since it arose from the primordial ooze without any problems at all. However, I run a few Linux friendly systems and also being a Linux household I wouldn't know the...

    Re: Again? Lawsuit against Linux

    Re: the OP
    I don't know if saying this is socially acceptable but Its possible that those SCO folks are old farts by now and can't remember that they already sued. On another note it's also possible...

    Re: snap should be dropped in desktop versions

    You make some good points. I like being on the cutting edge but I don't create it or decide what it will be. I just adapt when it appears. The problem for me with snaps is that they are packed with...

    Re: snap should be dropped in desktop versions

    I personally don't think anyone here actually cares what the culprit is. I like most will use what is convenient and comfortable. If it works I don't want to be bothered with anything new. As I have...

    Re: snap should be dropped in desktop versions

    Snap basically runs applications in a sandbox. I don't use it myself but it is running on my wifes 20.04 system and she has never heard the word snap or even knows that it exists. She is a...

    Thanks, this thread is getting to be an eye opening experience.
  15. Re: Browser extensions can be harmful ... Be careful

    Thanks for the clarification on the infatuation point. I'm like anyone else on this space ship. I can get lazy and this thread addresses an important issue. I don't know if you are familiar with...
  16. Re: Browser extensions can be harmful ... Be careful

    Yep, Like I said "more reasonable choice for my Linux Mindset". It really doesn't have much to do with the real nice desktop that Brave has. It is the fact that it has limited exposure without the...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Will the 21.04 nightlies and alphas/betas update to final?

    root is in quotes because the / is root. Regarding the swap file, it is a variable sized file inside of the /root and it is still in a dev stage. I have always used a 4Gig partition for /swap but...
  18. Re: Browser extensions can be harmful ... Be careful

    I decided to install Brave and give it a try. For some reason it seems to be the most reasonable choice for my Linux mindset. I tried it once before but didn't take time to learn how to use it. It...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Will the 21.04 nightlies and alphas/betas update to final?

    Sounds like a good plan to me. In addition I suggest you create a separate /swap partition also and avoid using Ubuntu's new "swap file". If the swap partition is present the swap file won't be...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: Will the 21.04 nightlies and alphas/betas update to final?

    Unless you are eager and willing to engage in a learning experience I suggest that you use the LTS Version on your primary everyday system. If you choose to use a dev version please don't blame...
  21. Re: Browser extensions can be harmful ... Be careful

    Just one more way that intrusions have found a backdoor to compromise a system. Proof or not I've deleted them all. This sounds way too real to suit me. It is resonate of other posts on this site...
