    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.

    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.

    “Unable to create io-slave” error

    I found a list of hplip commands, but I get a warning that hp-toolbox and hp-sendfax should not be run as root, and then they fail with an error. But the commands work when run with regular privileges. warning: hp-sendfax should not be run as root/superuser. HP Linux Imaging and Printing System...

    “Unable to create io-slave” error

    It's a good idea, what would be the command to launch it? I tried sudo hplip but that doesn't work.

    “Unable to create io-slave” error

    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.

    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.

    Physical to Virtual conversion with Grub intact

    I need help with the VMware P2V standalone converter. When I convert a system with grub, the VM is unable to boot, even though I included the boot partition in the image. I get to a grub screen that lists commands and none of them seem to work. What's the trick to convert a system with grub?

    Satisfying dependencies for installation of HPLIP

    Anyone know what will happen if I try to install the HP version of HPLIP (as opposed to the distro-provided version) on MX Linux 19? HP doesn't offer an MX-specific installer, but they do have one for Debian (which MX is based on).

    Satisfying dependencies for installation of HPLIP

    It looks like python 3.8 is actually the default version for new installs of Ubuntu 20.04, but upgraded systems (like mine) maintain version 2, for compatibility with legacy scripts. So I should be okay. "Python3 by default In 20.04 LTS, the python included in the base system is Python 3.8...

    file hplip-3.20.6.run hplip-3.20.6.run: POSIX shell script executable (binary data) Thanks for the explanation and the caveat. Now I understand better what I did. It's been a few days already, and I haven't seen any error messages or strange behavior, but that doesn't mean it won't happen...

    Satisfying dependencies for installation of HPLIP

    I downloaded the HPLIP installation file "hplip-3.20.6.run" for Ubuntu from the official HP site and attempted to run it on Kubuntu 20.04. It was unable to satisfy a python dependency. I saw a post from Christian Haunert https://answers.launchpad.net/hplip/+question/691141 with a solution to the...
