Tbh I have my reservations against tilling windows
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Deicide: 9:59pm On Dec 14, 2020|
Roadyroadie:And why is that?
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Roadyroadie: 10:24am On Dec 20, 2020|
Deicide:Mostly for a lot of reasons but mainly because a regular desktop manager is more flexible and requires little config compared to a tilling manager

Hello, I just installed Ubuntu. Saw this thread. I don't know app to install for playing DVD and movies.
Do I still need to download vs code editor on Ubuntu?
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Gargoylesmiles(m): 6:09am On Dec 26, 2020|
Search for Vlc. If you dont have it then install it via the software repo.

obajohn:sudo apt install code vlc

I'm using elementary os but updates are slow.
We are still using 5.1 based on Ubuntu 18.04
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Nobody: 12:02pm On Dec 26, 2020|
But its stable right ?
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by taylormed2(m): 3:07pm On Dec 26, 2020|
Sometimes I get segmentation fault for no reason. Though I think it's cause my memory is too low. And even on Ubuntu if I'm not using the default browser tabs crash every 2-3 minutes
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Gargoylesmiles(m): 7:36pm On Dec 26, 2020|
Your RAM might be giving up gradually. You might want to change it soon.

Isn't life Simple with tiling window manager
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by OneKinGuy(m): 8:50pm On Jan 01|
I just installed Linux mint for the first time. Thanks to pcguru1 for for the giude link he provided. I still also have windows and can dual but both mint and windows. Most importantly, I think Linux will help me in my data recovery business as it reads more files on a corrupt/damaged disk than windows.
Am loving the experience so far and might even completely switch to it full time some day
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Nobody: 11:14am On Jan 02|
Data Recovery business, I will need your help in the future I have an HDD with some important files I need recovered. Good one and all the best in your endeavor.
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by OneKinGuy(m): 3:16pm On Jan 02|
pcguru1:thank you very much, have a happy new year.
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Deicide: 4:36pm On Jan 02|

|Re: Ubuntu Linux by OneKinGuy(m): 5:03pm On Jan 02|

Ok, a desktop drive. If u have a SATA to USB cable, plug in in and check if it's readable.
If there was a physical damage, It might make some sounds. Try to identify the kinda sound it makes.
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Deicide: 6:11am On Jan 03|
OneKinGuy:Nothing is wrong with the drive. The connector got broken, that's why am asking if you can recover the file from it?
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Gargoylesmiles(m): 5:45am On Jan 04|
Not to sound pessimistic but I will say everything is wrong with the drive if the connector is broken since the connector is the gateway to your data in the drive. Will like to know how you solve this if & when you do. All the best.
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Deicide: 10:51am On Jan 04|
Gargoylesmiles:Well in terms of the Files they are all in it and ok. I actually wanna order the connector online but the procedures I saw on how to fix it mhen phew
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by AgentPein(m): 1:45pm On Jan 05|
hello guess i know this is not the best place for this question.
But i wish to join the train which distro will you guess recommend, thanks
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Gargoylesmiles(m): 5:11am On Jan 06|
Check out Ubuntu, Deepin and Elementary OS and decide which one to start your Linux journey with.
This is only the beginning so be ready to explore more in the future.

If I were to give advice to someone coming from a Windows environment these days, I'd say go with Mint until you get used to it. My complaint about Mint is that it appears to be a mainly hobbyist operation, so using it long term may not be sustainable. But it is excellent as a base to get introduced into the Linux ecosystem.
Another very good one is Linux Lite.
For me, I use Pop!OS these days, and I'm really loving it.
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by AgentPein(m): 8:23am On Jan 09|
Chxta:So which one would you suggest I go for? Already installed Linux Mint but it looks plain to me
|Re: Ubuntu Linux by Deicide: 3:35pm On Jan 09|
AgentPein:Is it because of looks you got Linux?
