    [xubuntu] Re: Xubuntu crashing and/or logging me out

    I can see that this is very frustrating for you but I can assure you that it is not typical of Linux or Xubuntu in any way at all.

    I run the same version on my desktop and laptop computers, the...

    Re: Removing Mate Desktop

    Run command
    grep -i " remove " /var/log/dpkg.log.1 /var/log/dpkg.log | grep mate-desktop which will show you the date and time that you installed the mate DE.

    If you now run the command again...

    [xubuntu] Re: Xubuntu crashing and/or logging me out

    I am not sure what might do that, and a search has not been any help, but you might find a clue if you look in /var/log/syslog, searching for the word session.

    [xubuntu] Re: Zoom Communications Services

    You are partly correct about that.
    Local .deb packages can, however, be installed with apt but not apt-get; that's a big advantage of the move to apt from apt-get in my opinion.
  5. Re: Dell Latitude E6430 - Both local disks died - Invalid partition table!

    So it sounds as if you can still boot to the live system; you do not need a hard disk in the machine to do that so I am mystified by your comment in post #6.

    So I repeat; boot to the live USB and...
  6. Re: Dell Latitude E6430 - Both local disks died - Invalid partition table!

    I am wondering if you can boot to your live USB, install gnome-disk-utility if it's not a default application, and using that run the SMART disk tests from it; click on the cog top right and choose...
  7. Re: is ubuntu live usb non persistent by default ?

    Yes and yes.

    If you want or need persistence you have to make sure that you create a USB live system that has it; how exactly you do that depends on which software you use to create the USB.

    I...

    [xubuntu] Re: Zoom Communications Services

    Much easier to use sudo apt install rather than sudo dpkg install as apt will sort out and install all the dependencies automatically and does not need the manual installation of those dependencies.

    [xubuntu] Re: Xubuntu crashing and/or logging me out

    Have you tried running the live system as I suggested before.

    I imagine you may have done so in order to run the e2fsck commands but you didn't say how long it was running nor whether there were...

    Re: Organizing programs

    To which I would add plank, cairo-dock and probably many others.

    Have you searched for dock in software?

    [SOLVED] Re: Burn OS image on USB stick

    I would suggest that mkusb is the best way forward.

    I think most users are now using it; I certainly haven't used anything else for a long time.
  14. Re: sandisk cruzer usb live ubuntu wont install

    What filesystem is on the USB install disk? It needs to be fat32.

    What version of Ubuntu are you trying to install?

  15. Re: Directory deleted but file still available - is it still using disk space?

    I suspect the file in that deleted directory was in RAM after being played but I fear that it will probably no longer exist once you shutdown VLC or reboot.

    It may be possible to play the file...
  16. Re: sandisk cruzer usb live ubuntu wont install

    It sounds as if your .iso archive file was probably corrupt in some way. When you downloaded it did you check the hashes to make sure it was good?

  17. Re: Desktop continually flashes and is unuseable

    Mea culpa!

    Sorry, my command suggestion was a typo - too many upper-case letters in the options shown.
    Try

    It will give us much more useful info.

    It looks as if you are using 16.04...

    It's a very long time since I last used the Startup-disk-creator so I am speaking mainly from memory and first principles, but are any USB disks shown if you first choose the .iso image to use, then...
  20. Re: Persistent USB Install - How can I shutdown without removing USB?

    Wait for more answers before accepting mine, but having got to the "Remove install medium and press ENTER" you can simply press the power button to switch off.

  23. [ubuntu_mate] Re: Installer wants to put extra partitions on a new SSD

    You do not need a swap partition any more as Ubuntu now uses a swapfile (generally 2GB, I think) instead, this being created automatically if no swap partition is found.

    If this is a UEFI...
