Re: Recent package update may have broken Firefox

After a PC reboot, I find that Firefox is broken. ... I can launch Firefox from an Ubuntu Docker container (no sound, but that's another battle). Doesn't sound like a broken firefox to me. Have you tried any of the basic debugging methods, namely starting firefox from a terminal and also running it...

Re: how can i change file's type?

You could add a text/asc type, but again use the more complicated "Another way" method because it works: basically add an xml file to /usr/share/mime/application, then run sudo update-mime-database /usr/share/mime i have created a file in /etc/mime/application called asc.xml and i wrote i...

Re: how can i change file's type?

how can i change the extension or the type of a file? in such a way as to open texts and .asc files with different programs. i'm using cinnamon. You want to "create a new mime file type" - it's far more difficult than it should be, which really isn't too bad because it should be trivially...

Re: /root out of space after 2 months. please help!

my /root is 100% full. Just a note on notation: the "root" filesystem is "/"; /root is the home directory of the admistrator, username="root", and usually doesn't have much in it. Anyway, your problem is probably timeshift - did you ever set it up? But try these to rem...

Change your user password so it consists of one letter. You can also remove it completely, but dunno if that would affect using sudo.

Thanks t42, but this isn't exactly what I want. I don't want to just switch between the two, I want a permanent transition to zsh. As it says in that post: To make it permanent, enter these chsh -l # list the shells chsh -s /bin/zsh # use the FULL PATH of zsh returned from chsh -l Now when you logi...

Re: Uninstall and replace the Bash

I'm looking for the safest possible way to change the old shell to the Z shell (zsh). This could get a little complicated, but I want to risk it as the latter is a lot more powerful. In addition, it's also constantly being developed and could soon replace the former. Thanks, t42! Here are several o...

What I can tell you is that all applications will use the desktop environment's (DE) default open dialog so the problem isn't FF, it's the DE, and this can be verified by opening files in different applications. I get different (three, IIRC) "open file" dialogs from different applications...

Does your system have fairly new graphics (within the last 4 or so years)? If not, it may not have the "missing" firmware because it does not apply for your computer. It's a 2019 Gigabyte MZGLKAP-00 (mini box) with Graphics: Device-1: Intel UHD Graphics 605 driver: i915 v: kernel Display:...
