    [lubuntu] Re: mice

    The Logitech M720 is one of the supported devices. There's a PPA for Piper and a PPA for ratbag; you need them both to be on the same version for it to work, I think.

    Oh, Piper's made it into the...

    Bluetooth is if you want to use it wirelessly. The terminal methods for controlling Bluetooth devices are way more complicated than the GUI ones; if you have a Bluetooth radio in your computer you'll...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: How to ask updating packages in universe repository?

    It's swings and roundabouts, really. PPAs are hosted on Launchpad, so there's an avenue to get it sorted if the packages turn out to be malicious, and ppa-purge is a really handy tool. But, yes, the...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: kernel 5.8.0-50-generic causing display scramble

    Could be. I wasn't affected by it (habitually tidying old kernels after I'd checked the new one works), I just saw the people having the issue in the forum.
  5. [ubuntu] Re: kernel 5.8.0-50-generic causing display scramble

    It was. A few releases ago the defaults were to have a smallish EFI partition and to never autoremove kernel packages. Unsurprisingly, as time went on, there were a lot of people with broken systems:...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: kernel 5.8.0-50-generic causing display scramble

    I've not experienced the issue, but

    this isn't strictly true. The number of old kernels to keep is a configurable parameter (although I don't know off hand where it's configured), and...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: How to ask updating packages in universe repository?

    Kismet devs have made their own repository.
  8. [ubuntu] Re: How to ask updating packages in universe repository?

    You don't. The Universe repository is specifically those packages that aren't maintained by the Ubuntu developers. Even for the packages that are maintained by Ubuntu developers, with a small handful...

    [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...
  10. [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...

    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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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.
  15. 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...

  18. 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.

  19. [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...
  20. 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...

    [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...
  23. [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...
