    [SOLVED] Re: 21.10 Upgrade questions

    I would presume that if you upgrade from a previous version of Ubuntu that has the .deb version of firefox as default, you will still have the .deb version in the upgraded 21.10 OS.

    Surely the...

    Re: Firefox Snap as Default in 21.10

    An alternative way to continue with Firefox could be to use the .tar.gz direct from Mozilla, unpack it into a folder in /opt and use the executable file in that as I currently do in debian; it works...

    Have you checked the mint.iso file you used against the published hashes to make sure it's a good download, or did you download it using a torrent client which checks it as its arrives?

  5. Re: how disable folder being mounted how partition ?

    You may not have installed any flatpack or snap packages but I think all the Ubuntu family of OSs have snapd installed by default even if no snaps are installed; my Xubuntu 20.04 certainly did,...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Blacked out boxes in Audacity window under Gnome after upgrade 18.04 to 20.04

    Ah!

    That %F is simply the suffix added to commands in .desktop launcher files; if you use the command in terminal you can cut the %F from the command used and it should work fine.

  10. Re: Upgraded to 20.04 with major problems!!!

    Upgraded from what to 20.04?

    I think 20.04 was the first version not to have chromium as a .deb install from the repos; officially it is available as a snap only and even running sudo apt install...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Blacked out boxes in Audacity window under Gnome after upgrade 18.04 to 20.04

    OK, this does seem to be a wxGTK problem and I did used to have to start Audacity in 18.04 using the command
    bash -c "GTK_IM_MODULE=; audacity %F" in the desktop launcher file.

    It may be that...
  12. Re: Which flavour and settings for an elderly person

    I use Xubuntu with the Xfce desktop which can be configured to use desktop icons if that is how your mother likes it, and 5hose icons can be easily enlarged to a size of her preference. The window...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Blacked out boxes in Audacity window under Gnome after upgrade 18.04 to 20.04

    I think this may be a known bug with problems related to GTK3 and Audacity's use of wxGTK which is something I saw in the past with the same problem you now have.

    I can't remember how I solved...

    Re: Fullscreen Bug

    I do not see this happen in my Xubuntu 20.04 either so it is not a normal problem.

    What errors, if any, do you see if you try to start the panel with command xfce4-panel

    Perhaps it has somehow been removed from the autostart list.

    [ubuntu] Re: VidyoConnect needs Play Store app

    That appears to be an Android app so your chances of getting it to run properly on Ubuntu are I suspect very limited.
