Re: legacy graphic card: native resolution only in LIVE DVD, but not after installation (xfce 19.3)

What me still buffles: the "driver: N/A" resulst of inxi (see below) - means, that for the graphic chip itself no driver and thus no hardware accelereation is used, isn't it? It means no kernel driver is in use, but note that this is in and of itself not necessarily a huge problem. Up until recentl...

Re: [Solved]Text Files External Drive

Not quite sure still why you were seeing a difference with FAT32 unless you mounted that/those filesystem(s) without executable rights to begin with --- but let's not worry our pretty little heads about that, then :wink:

Again, please check/specify what Edit -> Preferences -> Behaviour | Executable Text Files is set to in Nemo (the file manager).

Re: Text Files External Drive

Well, right, but that didn't seem to make a huge amount of sense as an interpretation of the question, given that all files on (ex)FAT and NTFS are by default considered executable, meaning I have no idea why you'd be seeing a difference between FAT32 and e.g. exFAT --- assuming the FAT32 filesystem...

Re: Text Files External Drive

So the assumption is that you in fact want to run Xed, not display its content (the usual problem in this general area is vice versa). Assuming Cinnamon/Nemo, Edit -> Preferences -> Behaviour | Executable Text Files.

Re: legacy graphic card: native resolution only in LIVE DVD, but not after installation (xfce 19.3)

By the way; I am assuming you are not e.g. able to ssh into the machine so as to fix this directly. If you in fact want to we might be able to get around that, but given that you're installing different systems anyway, just restarting from scratch with 19.2 seems likely easiest.

Pardon for being fuzzy on details here, but that has supposedly something to do with the the HWE xserver vs. the normal one for Ubuntu 18.04 / Mint 19. I expect that installing 19.2 will work, and would feel it to ...

Urm, lovely. As in, sudo vs. su does not on this 19.3 Cinnamon system seem to make a difference as such but both su and sudo need to launch a login shell so as to have a basic user environment, and need DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS (or DISPLAY at minimum, to allow a new instance to launch) set explicitl...

Re: [SOLVED] Change themes on wake script

A better option would be to change the !/bin/sh in the system-wake script to !/bin/bash : you are in check_day_night.sh using [[ which is not available in /bin/sh (on Debian/Ubuntu/Mint the shell "dash" rather than "bash") but the system-wake script sources check_day_night.sh (i.e., includes it) rat...

Re: legacy graphic card: native resolution only in LIVE DVD, but not after installation (xfce 19.3)

No, but please just try installing from the command line. I.e., open a terminal and copy/paste in: sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-openchrome If it fails and seems to say why, please post back results. If it does install fine: logging out of and back into the GUI after that is probably enoug...

Re: Recommend GPU non gamer for older system

A 1050 I would myself consider much too new for that system. And in fact; I believe we're already at the point where you need to be careful that a new graphics card's BIOS still supports legacy, as in non-UEFI, systems. As said, little experience with dual-monitor setups period, doubly when one is a...
