    [lubuntu] Re: mice

    It's one of those compensating-for-historically-bad-hardware things.

    So, classic example, a display with less than 100 pixels per inch is just terrible as a display, particularly for rendering...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Update process interrupted by my kid, now can't start

    So, essentially it looks like your package manager is in an undefined state, and your kernel/grub is confused about how to boot. Not a nice position to be in.

    However, a live USB boots into a...

    [lubuntu] Re: mice

    There are two aspects to how the pointer moves on screen based on the input from the mouse:


    sensitivity - how far the pointer moves for each movement signal of the mouse
    acceleration - how...

    Re: Video on NUC

    That definitely sounds like you've got something set incorrectly somewhere. In my experience the Intel integrated graphics, such as used in the NUC, are excellent at 2D and media decoding tasks, but...
  5. Re: Ban "other" from $HOME and subdirs - Good or Bad Idea?

    I suspect - but you're the one doing the testing - that all you'd need is the execute permission for others on the directory itself, plus the read permission on that face icon. Execute on directories...
  6. Re: Ban "other" from $HOME and subdirs - Good or Bad Idea?

    It's the default from 21.04 onwards. It was an oversight that they hadn't fixed it before, really. You're just ahead of the curve.
  7. Re: Ryzen 5000 CPUs and Ubuntu Mainline Kernel Installer on Ubuntu Desktop 20.04 LTS?

    My personal choice in that situation (if the 5.8 kernel really is problematic for some reason) would be to use mainline on 20.04, then switch to HWE-edge when it gets the 21.04 kernel, then switch to...

    You're probably after MuseScore. It's in the repositories.

    Work is underway, but there's still a long way to go yet.
  10. Re: FAT32 file system install with Ubuntu 20.04

    You are mistaken. FAT doesn't have the features that are required (notably, permissions) to be used for something functional like / or /home, but it can be read from and written to just fine.

  11. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 20.04 after recent updates on startup get: System Program Problem Detected

    Well, that depends. And seeing if deleting the crash reports helps will be indicative.

    The mechanism is that when something crashes, it dumps the crash report. Then, some time later, the contents...
  12. Re: SUGGESTION to make it possible on all ubuntu to select install location

    Earlier than that. Most of it came from Unix - that's why we have a Unix System Resources (/usr) directory. Some things have been added or moved around since to serve Linux' requirements.

    There is...

    [SOLVED] Re: Unexpected and Unwanted Logouts

    I can't help with the particulars of your issue, but you might find it easier to find a solution if you know that you aren't being logged out.

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS no Welcome screen

    Technically you could log in again (I think the username is "ubuntu" and the password is blank) but then you'd experience exactly the same symptom.

    So from your description, your graphical session...
  15. [ubuntu_mate] Re: Sound problem: Mono only via headphones

    That also suggests that it's a hardware issue. You've shown that with the same software and different hardware, the problem goes away.

    So, for the particular issue you're describing, it's because you haven't told Steam to use Proton (their Wine implementation) so it's looking for the Linux version of the game to download and...

    Re: steam install

    I'm not sure where you're reading the instructions from, but you're putting in a $ that you don't need.

    You can see from your prompt that it's got a $ at the end, signifying that you're a normal...
  19. [SOLVED] Re: PC no longer detecting headphones in/out?

    When you plug something in, it pushes in a pin, which triggers a signal from the hardware. When correctly configured, ALSA (the part of the sound stack that deals with the hardware) can use this...

    [kde] Re: Marge Root and home partitions

    It's pretty straightforward to change the size of partitions.

    You can't change a partition that's mounted, and if you're trying to run a partition editor from it then it's necessarily mounted....
  21. Re: Insert text from one file into another text file

    What you need is for the part of the operation that writes to the file (not necessarily the part that reads from a file) to be run with elevated privileges.

    Something like

    The ideal solution to that would be to, by hook or by crook, enable hardware acceleration for the video decoding process, so that you don't have to do it all in software on the CPU. The media...
  23. [SOLVED] Re: PC unable to boot, by pressing the start-button

    I'd suggest the same components as Autodave, but probably reverse the likelihood. It could go either way. Obviously letting out the magic smoke would be a sign.

    Assuming that what you meant to write was that they want to play Windows games on Steam that need a recent Wine version to run on Linux, you don't need to install Wine at all. Proton (Valve's Wine...
