    Re: what is your flavor?

    I was using a similar setup for a long time: gnome-flashback/Compiz, but I switched to KDE. I get the panels-and-menus workflow that I'm used to (plus wobbly windows and the desktop cube), and I have...

    Re: Ubuntu crashes

    I know you said you weren't particularly looking for support, but
    This sounds like an out of memory situation rather than a high load situation. Linux generally remains responsive under load but...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 20.04 Package Repository and Snapd Software version mismatches!

    There's nothing wrong; they are parallel distribution methods.

    The versions in the repositories are fixed at (a little while before) the date that the version of Ubuntu is released, although they...

    Re: Desktop problem

    As already mentioned, the Gnome devs have a very particular idea of how people should use their desktop and have taken steps to ensure that's how their users do so. It used to be much more easily...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Fans are locked to max speed, very noisy, please help

    There's a coolbits setting you have to apply elsewhere to enable fan control through Nvidia settings.
  6. Re: Is it possible to install GTA San Andreas in Ubuntu 18.04 ?

    Kind of, apparently.
  7. Thread: 4K question

    by CatKiller

    [xubuntu] Re: 4K question

    It depends on the source. Outputting a 4K image is pretty trivial. Outputting 4K video is not that much harder. Outputting 4K video with hardware acceleration so that you get decent performance,...

    [ubuntu] Re: SM58 microphone with Ubuntu

    The Scarlett 2i2 has been pretty painless. 2 inputs, tactile gain control, phantom power if you want to use something that needs it in the future. You just plug it in and it works.
  9. Re: Returning to dual-booting after a hiatus

    This would be my recommendation. Install Windows (if you want it) in UEFI with GPT partitioning and then install (K)Ubuntu 20.04. Anything else just makes things harder for negative benefit.

    [ubuntu] Re: Processor Load

    Exactly this. That processor has a maximum temperature of 90 C. If your cooling solution doesn't keep the processor below that temperature at load, the processor will throttle to reduce the load so...
  11. [lubuntu] Re: Unable to install wine E:Malformed line 53 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (

    You can see that you've randomly added commands to the file rather than the entries that should be there.

    Re: Super I/O chips

    You can read the CPU temp, as I said.

    The output from all motherboard sensor chips, whoever made them, goes through the hwmon interface. There's no difference. The issue is knowing what signals...

    Re: Super I/O chips

    It is true that the controls for sensor chips are largely implemented by scrabbling around for scant documentation or, in extremis, poking it to see what it does. The companies that make sensor chips...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: [20.04] I had to log in multiple times this morning - please help root-causing

    EVDI is the DisplayLink thing, which I understand is a work in progress. i915 is the generic Intel graphics kernel module. One or the other isn't happy.

    Re: How to permanently set GSYNC on?

    xorg.conf will still be used if it's there, it's just that it doesn't have to be there for everything to work. Importantly, you can use snippets of a config in xorg.conf.d if there's some aspect that...
  16. [kubuntu] Re: Bluetooth headphones settings don't persist

    That's definitely not been my experience. I paired my headphones once, and now whenever I turn them on they reconnect automatically and become the default audio sink. Even if you have to re-pair...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: Boot fails to activate keyboard. Cannot write login password.

    That is definitely a pain.

    It should just be a case of establishing a network connection from the live session: connecting to WiFi or whatever it is that you normally do. The chroot isn't like...
  18. [SOLVED] Re: Boot fails to activate keyboard. Cannot write login password.

    sda is the drive, rather than any of the partitions on it. From your fdisk output it looks like sda1 is the partition that you're interested in mounting.
  19. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu repositories for Nvidia drivers

    Don't download them from there, but it will show you which cards are supported by each driver version. Plus changelogs.

    [ubuntu] Re: How to rescan for HDMI sound

    One thing you could do is set your HDMI output as the default ("fallback") output. That would make all audio streams get moved to that output as soon as it appears. That's just drag-and-drop in KDE,...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: Boot fails to activate keyboard. Cannot write login password.

    Assuming your install disc is more recent than 2006, which is when the install disc and the live disc became the same thing, just use that. You don't need to use that to make another one. You just...
  22. [SOLVED] Re: Boot fails to activate keyboard. Cannot write login password.

    So how did you get on with the live USB? You have both keyboard and Internet there, yes?

    From the live USB it's a two-step process; you insert your install's filesystem into some place in the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Change resolution of a program?

    Gnome's DPI scaling is a work in progress, and its ability to play nicely with others is not great as a matter of policy. You may find that it helps to use
    QT_SCALE_FACTOR=1 zoom
  24. [SOLVED] Re: Boot fails to activate keyboard. Cannot write login password.

    There's definitely no need to install side-by-side. If your existing install is so broken that you need a new one then you only need the new one.

    If you've got a working environment from your live...
