    Android versions

    Okay, I know Android is not strictly Linux and so on, but I have the following problem. I want to buy a smartphone or tablet and noticed the budget ones have either Android Oreo or Android 9 that will probably update to Android 10 on Nokia and Samsung devices. If I choose say, a Alcatel...

    Zorin on Wayland

    I am running Zorin on Wayland and thus far it seems more responsive than before. I know it's almost just Fedora that run Wayland by default on Fedora Workstation. Anyone with experience using Wayland? The good and the bad?

    Gnome crashed!

    I removed LibreOffice from Fedora 31 and Gnome crashed. I installed AbiWord instead. I hope I didn't break my Gnome shell!? It's probably not wise to Frankenstein a distro to fit one's own needs? Any thoughts on that?

    Fedora blues

    I'm trying out Fedora 31 Workstation but Rhythmbox doesn't show or play the music CD I have inserted. It just shows audio CD but I can't play or rip it. Some video's don't play in Firefox or Chromium. I installed the H264 codec but that didn't fix that problem. Didn't have these issues in...

    Just works Linux distro.

    I would just like to ask everyone, which Linux distro just works out-of the-box and is not based on Debian/Ubuntu/Arch. So called independent projects. In my own expereince Solus fits that description.(Until a kernel update cause programs to act up.) Fedora, I am using now not so much.

    Forgot password

    I forgot my password to get into Solus 4.1 Budgie! I read about using sudo passwd username, after booting into the live session DVD to change the password. Does this sound right? First time this happened, I do remember my Zolus one. I'm dual booting, becuase one Linux is not enough.

    Android 9

    My mother has a Samsung A30 and got a security update October 2019 and nothing after that. It runs on Android 9 and I have read about updates for that OS in January and February 2020. It just shows me "your phone is up to date." What can I do to find out whats wrong?

    Swiss Army knife Linux

    I have been using MX Linux for a few days and find it to be the best Linux distro I have ever used. With all the options it looks like a Swiss Army knife and works very well. You even have access to the testing repository in the easy to use MX package installer. The only disadvantage is...

    Suspend or hibernate?

    I am using Arch based Antergos and tried the "Suspend" to go and make some coffee. When I came back it thought that I must only move the mouse and the PC will come back to live. I tried ctrl+alt+delete and stuff like that and nothing happened.] I presumed that the PC was off and pressed the...

    Manjaro Architect

    I am interested in installing Manjaro Architect but first have to do my homework ,but can't find a step by step tutorial anywhere. There's no instructions in the official PDF. The idea is to choose just what I want during the installation instead of the plethora of programs I will never use.

    Power save in Budgie

    I am using the Budgie desktop in Antergos (Linux 5.1.4) and the power saving setting doesn't work at all. I can see that I have Gnome version 3.32.2. Is there a way to fix this and are other DE more reliable? (XFCE or KDE) Everything else works flawlessly.

    Switch to LTS in Antergos

    I am new to Arch based systems and was just wondering, if I want to switch to the LTS Linux kernel as the default kernel how do I do that? I found the following command in some article sudo pacman -S linux-lts sudo pacman install linux-lts-headers Is this all it takes? The standard kernel on...

    Antergos rules!

    I have installed Antergos Budgie this weekend and find that everything from Firefox to 0 A.D. works so much better on my AMD A10-5880k APU with a 2 Gig Radeon R6670 graphics card. This is after using Debian 9, Lubuntu 18.04 this year. The only strange thing was that I choose the long term...

    Dual booting two Linux distros

    Is it very complicated installing Manjaro(or anything else) to dual boot with my current Lubuntu installation? There is a lot of information about dual booting Windows and Linux, but not two Linux distros. Will I have to manually partition the hard drive or is there a option in, for example...

    White flash

    I see a white flash across my screen when I exit Firefox or some other program. I don't know if this has something to do with the graphics driver. When I installed the OS, the graphics card was out of order with a broken fan. It's not a great problem, just a little annoying. There is also no...

    Standardize commands and software versions

    Why don't they standardize commands and software in the same distro, say Ubuntu or whatever? I just have two games on my PC and I had to ad a repository to get the latest version of one of them because the one in the software center was older. The other one also had a newer version but I still...
