Re: Libre Office - How to turn off font color

I must admit that I am also confused - unless you want a method using only the keyboard, rather than a mouse. With the mouse it is a simple task, keyboard short cuts, sorry, I have no idea.. colour.png EDIT I found this answer for a keyboard shortcut to do this in Ask Ubuntu - but you have to set th...

Re: Error message; but what do I do?

Your copy of the original error makes reference to duplicate entries for vscode.list. That is certainly related to Visual Studio Code. I believe that if you remove the references to Visual Studio from your Additional Repositories that the problem will also disappear. Just unclick the second entry & ...

Re: Error message; but what do I do?

It looks like your sources of Software have somehow become duplicated. Look for Software Sources in the Menu. Check under PPAs & Additional Repositories for unwanted/duplicate entries. Either remove or just disable (by unticking the Enabled box). Update cache when requested. Try Software Updater aga...

Re: Package Manager Confusion

Lot of questions there & I am sure that I cannot all, but, for starters.. If you are a Linux newbie then Software Manager is the best place to go to search for & install software packages. It lists all the software available in the repositories, knows what you already have loaded & has (to varying d...

Re: Can never get to live session when trying to boot or install

Just about every BIOS setting I have seen has a different layout. Some are very clear as to how to do things, others less clear. So, sorry, no, I cannot be clear what you should do, only point towards settings that, in the past, have stopped me installing software. You need to open up BIOS & go thro...

Re: Buying a new laptop, suggestions?

Couple of years ago I had a bad experience with an HP at exactly the same time as my next door neighbour was having similar issues, so I have stayed clear of them since. They, obviously, may well have improved since. Currently own a Lenovo & am VERY pleased with it & have recommended friends to buy ...

Re: Can never get to live session when trying to boot or install

It could well be a setting in your BIOS - like secure boot being on, or load from USB being off, or disk being set to anything but ACSI.
I suggest that you have a look in there first & see if anything obvious needs to be switched off, or on..

Re: Where's my keyboard icon?

I discovered that a keyboard flag only displayed on my system if I had more than 1 layout.

Go to system settings, keyboard click on the layout tab. Add another layout by clicking the + sign.
A flag representing your first layout should now appear in the panel.

There are free programs that you can install that remove Microsoft looking over your shoulder. Of course, you have to have some confidence that these programs do (& only do) what they say they will do.. :D Blackbird is one I use (not that I use Windows for anything much any more) https://www.getblac...

Re: Unable to install a secondary storage disk

I don't know if you have a manual for that board but it seems that the BIOS is fairly complex in what you can do.
Here is a link to the user manual...you have to get a fair way into it until you get to BIOS settings..
