    Move Home folder back to default location

    Indeed, but to perform it in reverse, you need to boot into a live usb, which is a crucial difference that I didn't even think of, and there are also some smaller details that differ.

    Move Home folder back to default location

    Hi, I somehow missed this post and read the next one. So yeah, I can copy files and delete a partition and stretch a partition, but the trickier part is recreating Home in a way that will be recognized by the system. Fstab needs to be modified, and maybe other things, too. And Home needs the...

    Move Home folder back to default location

    Good approach, but I am not sure that reinstalling is "avoiding work" Running the installer is just the easy part, then comes root certificate and updates and keyboard layouts and samba and programs and printers and...

    The standard instructions don't work very well in reverse.

    This can be achieved also by the extension "Window List", which is included in the package sudo apt install gnome-shell-extensions It should be set to ""Never group windows".

    [SOLVED] Gnome -- text display on running application icons?

    Looks like you nailed it. Thanks! Since I am a chronic distro-hopper, I am currently in the world of Xfce, but this might bring me back to Gnome!

    [SOLVED] Gnome -- text display on running application icons?

    I haven't decided yet whether I want Manjaro or Ubuntu. I looked in GNOME Tweaks on Manjaro and didn't see what I was looking for. The option might appear if I would install Dock-to-Dash or something like that. I am hoping that a Gnome user might know from experience how to do it.

    [SOLVED] Gnome -- text display on running application icons?

    Can I cause a running application icon to display its full text, on Gnome desktop? In Xfce, this is called "show button labels". I will screenshot what I mean, this is the panel on KDE.

    I am trying to attach a file in the "Send Fax" wizard of HP Device Manager (HPLIP 3.20.6). I am running it on Kubuntu 20.04. In the window called "Select Files to Send", I click on the "Add..." button, and I get the error Unable to create io-slave. Can not create socket for launching io-slave...

    Physical to Virtual conversion with Grub intact

    Thanks. I actually have a MX Linux ISO, it has an awesome grub installer/repair tool. I think I would let it try to do it, maybe it will save me a headache. It fixes grub for other distros, not just for MX.

    What ISO to use? This sounds like it might work.
