  1. [ubuntu] Re: No bootable devices found after BIOS update on Dell XPS 9370 (ubuntu preinstalled

    The other thing to check from having all your UEFI settings reset to defaults by the update is which mode you're booting in: UEFI or BIOS (also called "Legacy" or "Compatibility Support Module"). If...

    [SOLVED] Re: PPAs needed for Ubuntu 21.04

    The upgrade process changes the release codename for all repositories to that of the release you're upgrading to, and then disables all third-party repositories. This is entirely automatic, doesn't...
  3. Re: High temperatures with occasional impeded cooler spin rates

    Sure, but OP asked about useful maintenance that could be done. I'd always consider changing the thermal paste whenever I was fiddling with the cooling, although the result of the consideration would...
  4. Re: High temperatures with occasional impeded cooler spin rates

    Depending on how easy it is, you could change the thermal interface material between the processor and heatsink. Some cooling solutions are better than others, and some hardware is more accessible...

    Just as an alternative to consider: is your /var really big because of something that you want, or is your /var really big because a log file has grown out of control? Every now and then some...

    Re: Ryzen vs Ryzen

    Those first gen Ryzens are great, especially stepping up from Sandy Bridge, but each subsequent Zen generation has had quite a big improvement over the previous one; go newer if you can.

    As for...

    Just that in the config file makes it have invalid structure.

    Re: APT now installs SNAPS ?

    I'd suggest Pop as a better Ubuntu-alternative than Mint, since they don't have the lead dev throwing their toys out of the pram.

    Or you can stick with Ubuntu and, if you really can't seem to help...

    If you want all snaps, all of the time, then you want Ubuntu Core.

    Re: APT now installs SNAPS ?

    It's not new.

    They're dogfooding Chromium as a snap for these reasons. In prior releases they had random things as snaps, like Gnome's calculator.

    The deb in the repositories has to pull in...
  11. Re: Trying to fully switch to Linux, need info please!

    Just so you're aware, the live installer environment is exactly the same as the one you'll have after you've fresh installed, with a couple of wrinkles: load times will be slower because everything...
  12. Re: Trying to fully switch to Linux, need info please!

    Fire up a live USB and try it.



    The DAC will be fine. There is DAW software available that can handle VST plugins, but I've not tried it. Ardour and Muse, I think?

    For low latency audio...
  13. Re: Cant make shortcuts from my data SSD to desktop

    I mean this question sincerely; why do you do that?

    Linux is extremely user-friendly in ways that Windows isn't. If it was exactly the same as Windows, it wouldn't be an alternative, would it? If...
  14. Re: Cant make shortcuts from my data SSD to desktop

    So, a couple of things.

    Links aren't shortcuts in the way you're thinking of them. They're a file that points to a different file, like a copy that's always up to date and takes no space. In case...

    [ubuntu] Re: Replacing /home SSD

    Do you want to do a fresh install?

    Which partition gets mounted where is controlled by a simple text file: /etc/fstab. You can simply mount your new partition (which you'll need to create on your...

    Re: About future of GNOME (3 -> 40)

    Well, they did run out of money, and had to get rid of a bunch of devs, trying to create the Ubuntu Phone. All of Unity was to unify their desktop, netbook, and future phone, environments.

    Re: About future of GNOME (3 -> 40)

    I'd recommend that you try out a bunch, to see which ones start roughly where you want, with the customisability to get you the rest of the way there. It's just a download and firing up a live USB...

    For the OP, Discourse is where new features and things are discussed with the Ubuntu devs. We're just volunteer users here.

    [SOLVED] Re: mice

    The Logitech M720 is one of the supported devices. There's a PPA for Piper and a PPA for ratbag; you need them both to be on the same version for it to work, I think.

  22. [ubuntu] Re: How to ask updating packages in universe repository?

    It's swings and roundabouts, really. PPAs are hosted on Launchpad, so there's an avenue to get it sorted if the packages turn out to be malicious, and ppa-purge is a really handy tool. But, yes, the...
  23. [SOLVED] Re: kernel 5.8.0-50-generic causing display scramble

    Could be. I wasn't affected by it (habitually tidying old kernels after I'd checked the new one works), I just saw the people having the issue in the forum.
  24. [SOLVED] Re: kernel 5.8.0-50-generic causing display scramble

    It was. A few releases ago the defaults were to have a smallish EFI partition and to never autoremove kernel packages. Unsurprisingly, as time went on, there were a lot of people with broken systems:...
