    remove latest updates? Solved on my own, activated "dcrm" player.

    I agree with your post, the strangest thing is that I have used Zorin from 2013 up until this year and never experienced the system breaking or much freezes. Ubuntu 18.14 froze on me while updating, Manjaro updates broke programs and Q40S ended with a "unrecognized file system". I am using...

    remove latest updates? Solved on my own, activated "dcrm" player.

    Try two simple commands: sudo apt update and sudo apt upgrade, one after the other. It will ask your password and then you just type in in and press enter. Also press enter after typing those commands. Just select "y" when it asks if you want to instill the updates. Don't be afraid of the...

    Debian installation Problem

    That's correct, I should have looked up how to install sudo on my mother's smartphone, done that and then the DE. I not a big deal, because I have found that all the old software programs on Debian stable doesn't always mean rock solid stability on my PC. I am trying Solus MATE now and so far...

    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?

    Debian installation Problem

    I should have used the text based install instead of the graphical install method, it's easy enough. Good tip!

    Debian installation Problem

    Yes but at a certain point you have to select some mirror site to get the desktop from and after going through every single choice I could not get any further than that. I tried sudo apt install lxqt or gnome, but that didn't work. I liked the idea of a minimal system with only a browser and...

    Debian installation Problem

    You choose a mirror during the installation and then select what desktop options and other software you want. I looked it up in various articles on installing Debian 10 using the netisntaller, as well as Average Linux User's youtube video on the same subject.

    Solus vs Manjaro

    I tried installing Solus MATE again, since May last year and everything works now. Either I have gotten more tech-savvy or Solus improved very much. Probably the latter. Hope the fires died down without too much flooding.

    Debian installation Problem

    I tried to install Debian 10 with the netinst too and ended up without a desktop because of some mirror site could not be contacted during the installation. Try Solus instead, the installation is much more reliable and easy.

    linuxlite v solus v zorin

    I am trying Lubuntu 18.04 LTS now, because Firefox used to launch a bit slow in Zorin 15. It's no faster and things are more difficult and takes more time to find than in Zorin. The good interface makes Zorin very easy and fast to use. I also tried Ubuntu, last weekend and while it was...

    Windows Tech Support phone spam

    I get those from time to time over many years and from what I remember, using Windows, I had to contact Microsoft to get help with their OS. You get one or two support incidences and then your on your own. If you can't fix the problem, you have to reinstall Windows. I have used WIndows 95...

    linuxlite v solus v zorin

    Zorin 15.1 is very easy to use and it uses 2 GB most of the time. I have some old AMD A10 APU (4 CPU cores) I bought in 2013 and a 2 GB graphics card. Even when the fan on the graphics card broke and I had too stop using it until I found some replacement fan, Zorin kept on working smoothly from...

    When was your first touch of Linux?

    I selected the extra drivers and codecs when installing Lubuntu and everything worked fine for me. It eleminated any post installation troubleshooting for why some program don't work and how to fix it.

    Am i going mad? MX Linux issue

    I switched to Zorin 9 when my Windows 7 would install updates anymore and the internet stopped working. Didn't use Linux before that at all.(2014) It was a easy transition for me, because everything worked. Lubuntu is the same. Of all the many distros I have tried this year, there are only a...

    Not exactly. It means I'm to stupid to install Debian and I don't have to bother learning because of Mark Shuttleworth and his company saved me from Microsoft. That's what Ubuntu means.
