    Newb Perspective - Linux Distro Hopping

    My 2 cents FWIW I've put Likes on all of the above because I find elements in each Post I agree with or have in common. I am not exactly a Hopper in terms of replacing one for another, but simply add and add and add to my multibooting experience and environment. A part of it is because I have...

    finding a drectory in file system

    G'day @dotKer , g'day all :) Catfish officially came under the Xfce umbrella a little over 12 months ago, and as Xubuntu is based on Ubuntu with an Xfce DE (desktop environment) it is likely already installed. An article HERE may be of interest. Cheers Wizard

    ACPI Error on LG Gram 17 inch when attempting to multiboot

    G'day @alter_ohm and welcome to linux.org :), and what good timing on your part ! Nicely done. Jeffrey, this fell through my net a little because #10 to #13 were written when I was on my road trip last Friday and then came back to the bushfires. Just to clarify a couple of points, on the...

    Getting a new computer and a new OS. Help?

If you are buying online, well and good, but if you are considering "hoofing the shoe leather" between stores in your city, you might want...

    Ubuntu boots and function very slow

    Stick's not in there, Brian, or it would show as ID-2: /dev/sdb1 or similar, in the inxi -F output. G'day @actuday from another Aussie and welcome. :) (Wizard appears in a puff of smoke) Do you know if you have GParted installed? apt-cache policy gparted ... will reveal. If not...

    Which linux version is best ?

    Just a heads up here :) This thread started Feb 20 (Oz time), had some discussion for 6 days, last entry from Rado was followed by a 6 month gap until LInpassion's input. The OP has not been active since Day One with any response. The Thread can stay open for people to express their opinions...

    Rock Roxx

    Macabre thought (Wiz back from the ashes of bushfires) but I keep having the phrases (ashes to ashes) popping into my head. So here's David Bowie with a classic. And yes, it is about drugs, but that too is an issue of importance in my family. Then for a bit of rock and roll, more Masters...

    Yumi USB Download Help

    No, that is not so - what has happened is that you have made a couple of wrong choices. Not your fault, particularly, YUMI's layout is confusing, to say the least. If you want to stick with trying with YUMI, then we can get that running for you, but only if you can consistently use the same...

    Yumi USB Download Help

    OK Dick, more or less back now. :) YUMI appears to be very pernickety, as is the same for one of its contemporaries, multibootusb, with regard to Persistence. I could go on more, but that will consume time and space. (But at least I am up to speed now on current versions of YUMI and...

    Installation of Kali Linux 2019.3

    G'day @Griyan and welcome to linux.org :) Take a look at this Post I wrote a little over 12 months ago. https://www.linux.org/threads/linux-for-cybersecurity.19269/#post-57380 The Wikipedia article referred there lists a number of the tools Kali uses. Nothing has changed since then, to any...
