    Rock Roxx

    And just to post something more mainstream for everyone of all ages and eras: Angels & Airwaves - The Flight Of Apollo (Love Part One) A&A aren't so widely known since DeLonge just didn't have Blink 182's publicity -- TBH I prefer A&A to Blink

    Rock Roxx

    Hey Chris, great idea for a thread, BTW. I actually looked around to see if there was a music thread a while back, thinking of starting one myself. I discovered this from your thread in your sig (checked them all out). Believe it or not, I thought it would be about Rox "Desktop Environment"...

    locker folders

    Your, err "handy" (I think there's a translation error from Google) does not have write permissions. This could be it is "owned" by root, that it is missing the 'w' permission, or was mounted with -ro (read-only). I do not know what "handy" is (translated from?), but I would guess you mean a...

    X server not running [SOLVED]

    Probably your VM was "emulating" a legacy/exotic video driver. "xserver-xorg-legacy" essentially lets you run whichever tty you're gonna run X on as if root was running it (setuid). This is different than simply running as root, a'la su -c, sudo, or doas (did I miss one, lol) from a security...

    recreation of corrupted EFI system partition

    Oh, didn't know that. Just saw OP was on 22.04 so I knew it was the latest. I'm not terribly in the know on Ubuntu's release system -- or minor cycles.

    Thank ye kindly fer yer trust! Don't be worryin' 'bout ratings o' content, 'twas merely a question o' rules "in-universe" fer this here thread. I'll naught post a thing that daytime radio wouldne post. ...Actually I'd better filter things myself. Radio last I even gave it a chance a decade or...

    recreation of corrupted EFI system partition

    I should've just said upgrade, thought you were running 20.* for some reason, but AFAIK 22.* is the latest. Anyway, not the issue at hand... Now, did anything fetch successfully? If so, try apt-get update --fix-missing as the error suggests. Then run apt-get upgrade -y. If not, then try echo...

    How [u]Not[/u] to Ask a Question (Funny & Serious)

    This isn't limited to that particular thread, these are general guidelines, so I've added your suggestion.

    Rock Roxx

    So, I've finally had a peek at this thread and, wow, big. I'll have to start going through the last 42 pages gradually. IDK the exact content rules, but I presume sub-genres of rock are allowed (eg: Metal, etc.) Also dunno what's been posted already, but here's some 2 cents (both lengthy...

    How [u]Not[/u] to Ask a Question (Funny & Serious)

    PREAMBLE So, as I mentioned at the start of the preamble, I was going to blog something along these lines as a parody, but I realised I could provide this here, on this forum, as both educational material and entertainment. I invite anyone else to contribute their thoughts, too, that we may...

    recreation of corrupted EFI system partition

    Okay. Glad your system's more/less running. Let's start with the questions: 1. Everything marked with an asterisk *, except Antix. Don't forget to run efibootmgr --delete-bootorder afterwards. Note the things like PXE boot will simply be restored by the BIOS firmware's autodetect and built-in...

    Install Grub to secondary location or (build a new Distro)...?

    Admonishment And "I'm going to say you may want to" try changing the tone of your posts. Everyone on this forum is not here for your convenience. ...and I'll also say turn down the caps -- and, again, the attitude -- and explain things in simple form. Using lengthily-constructed sentences for...

    recreation of corrupted EFI system partition

    Okay, I see multiple problems here. Aside from your BIOS nvRAM having "stale entries, your SSD has no visible boot partition. There's 600MB unallocated which I assume was meant to be just that. Here's a quick tutorial... You should now have just one bootloader listed by your BIOS. It should...

    recreation of corrupted EFI system partition

    If you are going to (re)install Ubuntu and AntiX, then you don't need to fix anything. The installers will sort it all out, including Windows, so just run the installs (I suggest installing AntiX last coz it has a great default GRUB menu pre-configured) and when you reboot, it'll magically be...

    The Future of Linux

    Yup. I keep some, but about 90% end up getting tossed. Sadly the <insert-DE>-look.org sites have gone downhill. Many themes are broken. Some need tweaking. Most are not full themes, i.e. theme + window manager them, which is fine since you can usually mix 'n match quite decently. My biggest...
