    [SOLVED] Re: Older CPU out-pacing newer one

    I don't restart by systems or a browser all that often, so I honestly don't know how quickly that specific test is.
    Comparing a bloated KDE to a lite-gnome2-ish isn't really fair, but for most...

    [SOLVED] Re: Older CPU out-pacing newer one

    Windows has something called the "pre-cache". Look that up.
    There is also the pre-fetch loader. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prefetcher It is a trick to make things seem faster than they really...

    [xubuntu] Re: trying to setup vnc

    There's lots of old junk out there with less-than-great recommendations.
    On the LAN, I'd use straight X11 forwarding that is built-into X11 w/ ssh, not any massive "remote connection desktop" junk....

    Re: Help with GParted

    Please be certain you are using terms correctly. Drive is not the same as Partition. Almost always, Windows has been lying to people by calling C: and D: "drives." - that is factually incorrect and...

    [xubuntu] Re: trying to setup vnc

    Well, x2go is 2-3x faster than vnc AND much more secure, does that help?
    I've been using the PPA for years. Windows clients need the "fonts" package from the x2go site too and when setting up ssh,...

    [xubuntu] Re: trying to setup vnc

    The gray screen is just the root window. Did you start a window manager or DE?
    If you have openbox or fvwm installed, run those. They are light and work well over vnc.

  8. [ubuntu] Re: Recommended way to mass deploy Ubuntu desktop

    powerpc is a CPU architecture, like ARM, x86_64, MIPS, Itanium, Alpha/AXP. It isn't a typical Windows-like hardware in a PC. While some AIX servers and workstations were built using it, so where...

    Re: Help with GParted

    Because the partition table is a legacy style, MBR, you have a "logical partition" for Linux. This is wholly contained within sda4, which is the "Extended Primary Partition". The free space is...
  10. Re: What software to use for making a booting USB ?

    I used to use unetbootin, then yumi, then dd, then ddrescue. They were all too complicated.

    These days I use cp. Yes, cp. Any command that can move bits, unmolested, from A --> B can be used....
  11. Re: Ubuntu does not always communicate with server.

    If you can ping the router from both systems, it isn't general networking that's in the way.

    Did you mean to point to the Apple solution? There is another page, linked above, for normal X86-64 systems. I understand that Apple does things different.

    Re: how to use ubuntu desktop without console?

    This is not true. My mother never opened a terminal in her life and she used Lubuntu for years.

    It needs to be

    [ubuntu] Re: I Can't Install Ubuntu Successfully

    Don't install, use the "Try Ubuntu" choice on the boot menu. If that doesn't work, then there is likely an incompatibility with the flash drive and the USB controller. I wish there were some way to...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: 20.04 AD user cannot connect to TrueNAS CIFS share via PAM Mount - Error code 13

    Use NFS, not CIFS to mount shared storage between Unix systems. NFSv4 does system-to-system Kerberos authentication and has better performance and allows native, POSIX, file permission controls.

    [kubuntu] Re: Can I remove Ruby ?

    There is no core OS reason to have ruby installed on 20.04.
    As for dependencies, you'll need to delve deep into the ruby system and APT to determine that. Gems manually installed outside of APT...

    VLC should play any video worth seeing.
    If you want a CLI program, mpv is quite excellent.
