    Is there a way to update GLIB on ElementaryOS?

    Thanks friends, I understood by reading you that it would require installing another OS, and I certainly wouldn't make such a radical change just to be able to play an emulator for 15 minutes a week lol It's nice to know that a new version of EOS is coming anyway :cool:

    Is there a way to update GLIB on ElementaryOS?

    Hi everyone, I've tried to install Duckstation (a PS1 emulator) using AppImage on Elementary 5.1, and it didn't work: Apparently the latest Glibc version (2.30 or higher) is required to install it, and turns out that EOS is based on Ubuntu 18.04, which supports Glibc only up to 2.27. While...

    What the word Ubuntu means.

    As a complete apprentice in the subject of linux I've practically only used ubuntu-based things until now (using elementary, but I started in linux with 16.04 or something) So the other day i was testing last Ubuntu version and freaked out about what i saw, which was the shamefully irritating...

    I search an Alternative Microsoft Teams for Linux

    Hello @Scribibis I'm not sure what you've meant by "linux equivalent" - as in an entire new open-source thing (?), but the only free alternative I can think of is Google. Even if Google Workspace is a paid service, all those things like Docs, Drive, Meet, Chat are for free and can do the job on...

    [SOLVED] "Locked Nvram detected" / API issue on reboot (Elementary and Mint)

    Well, guys, for some reason when shutting down the system after a few days of work, I was ready to reinstall it but nothing unusual happened: system initialization is ok (Elementary). The downside is that I have no idea what went wrong, let alone what it solved. It was days of testing...

    [SOLVED] "Locked Nvram detected" / API issue on reboot (Elementary and Mint)

    Interesting. As I understand it after a couple searches, it would be about resetting BIOS settings, but I'm not sure It's more than a hardware thing - there's many suggestions on google about removing motherboard battery in order to reset BIOS. In this other thread someone's suggestin the...

    [SOLVED] "Locked Nvram detected" / API issue on reboot (Elementary and Mint)

    Good to know. Started google each line of it and it was crazy Thanks. Now it's correct. I honestly don't know how it get to this, but I hope doing another clean install on ubiquity is a way to fix it On some of these trial-and-error since last week, I've noticed Linux Mint (I guess)...

    [SOLVED] "Locked Nvram detected" / API issue on reboot (Elementary and Mint)

    Hello everyone, This was after an attempt to configure the HDD on /home folder together with an SSD, but It's probably unrelated to that, as the problem persists after several attempts to reinstall both Elementary and Linux Mint, and using Ubiquity to allocate the /home folder on the HDD...

    Taking better advantage of SSD+HDD config in installation

    I came back here to include two questions, which seem to have more to do with this topic than with a new one. It has to do with the versatility of this configuration, and the real possibility of changing OS. So now the contents of the /home folder are on the HDD, while the OS is bootable via...

    Taking better advantage of SSD+HDD config in installation

    Just reinstall EOS (snapshot included) and retraced my path here, now successfully. No problem with the password when logging in and HDD properly mounted as /home. Thank you all for your patience! P.s.: More relieved I wasn't seeing things lol, indeed those two columns on Timeshift are the...

    Taking better advantage of SSD+HDD config in installation

    So, there's that. The week had just begun so I'm sure I was sober the moment I finally took the snapshot. But I swear these choices confused me, as there were three columns, but only two options: "Exclude all", "Include hidden" and ... "Exclude all" again. Weird. I've decided to go with midway...

    Taking better advantage of SSD+HDD config in installation

    Since login to account is blocked, I was doing all this while on live Elementary, so I don't know if its valid. Here it is: Command (m for help): p Disk /dev/sdb: 931.5 GiB, 1000204886016 bytes, 1953525168 sectors Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes...

    Taking better advantage of SSD+HDD config in installation

    Ok. Now I think I managed to make things worse. For some reason the internet was no longer working, and I couldn't access my files. After restarting the system, I saw that it didn't recognize the login password. I am accessing it now by a bootable pendrive :) I tried to copy the /home folder...

    Taking better advantage of SSD+HDD config in installation

    I managed to advance to the part where they say I should edit fstab: Here it brings an error, about which I could not find instructions, despite the error code: ~$ sudo io.elementary.code /etc/fstab No protocol specified Unable to init server: Unable to connect: Connection refused...

    Taking better advantage of SSD+HDD config in installation

    Everything went well with Timeshift. I only had to enable PPA support before, with sudo apt install software-properties-common So that the repository could be recognized, or something. Then: sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa apt-get update apt-get install timeshift Then, backup...

    Taking better advantage of SSD+HDD config in installation

    Correct me if I'm wrong... I can then follow the steps of that thread, mounting HDD to make it accessible from startup. After mounting it, I get access to it through the console (with "chmod 777" command I think), so I can move the folder /home from SSD to HDD. So, the OS will automatically...

    Taking better advantage of SSD+HDD config in installation

    Excellent. I read about it; so it's even better than i thought. Looking forward for your article! I think that while researching before opening this topic I came across things about fstab but I decided not to go further in the guidelines I found - I'm almost sure it was these from 8 years ago...

    From MiMoSA to Elementary and beyond (I guess)

    Hello there! I was born south of Brazil in '81 and had access to PCs and the internet in the 2000s, but I was never really attached to it other than work obligations. I tried to remember when I had contact with Linux and realized that it is a very interesting story, I even went to get some...

    WHAT DISTRO LINUX IS THE LIGHTEST?

    Well, guys, I feel that maybe I made the exact same mistake that I was trying to point out, and doing it in relation to people who have helped a lot more than me here in this forum (?) Lol I edited the most emotional part of the message and left only the most useful part. May all linux beings...

    Taking better advantage of SSD+HDD config in installation

    For this temporary installation let's say, I did not make any editing on the partitions. I chose the automatic / standard installation and at least from what I saw now by Gparted, no swap partition was created.
