  • Yes, you're perfectly right (and... I'm aware of these circumstances too :) ) some small print points: (1) the VB host is obviously installed, ALSO the VM Host extensions are installed as well;
  • Linux VirtualBox 5.2.5.220 : (1) how to add a bootable USB to a list of all devices that are searched for an installation Win-7 ISO during the boot?
  • the maze of versions does look like labyrinthine on purpose IMO: the Kubuntu 16.04 is clearly older that the 18.04, and yet it does use newer 5.5 Plasma than the 5.12 of 18.04? different needs ...
  • Chris, as I already have the LMDE-3 installed, I'll try the above as a trial and a learning exercise :) thank you. However, the actual question is whether it might be possible to substitute the KDE ...
  • many users are relying on a [very] long uptimes and the true 24/7 stability of their OS. Why do you think at last 50% of all businesses - small and large alike - stick with win-7 as if their life ...
  • Chris, thanks for the pointers. Actually to have a ver. 9.5 is not a "must" for me at all - I just reasoned that perhaps the 9.5 will have most bugs already weeded out (which is not always the ...
  • Replied in linux-firmware
    just wonder... WHY is yours so much larger, mine is only 157553 ?? And speking of Spectre - is the linux-firmware here dependent on the BIOS being patched with a proper microcode, or... parhaps the ...
  • that good famous old austerity and "squareness" of the KDE from decades ago seems to be now gone for good, alas :( Also - which might be not a fault at all (I simply do not know) of the KDE-Plasma ...
  • I'm putting this as a new thread (instead to embroiling it further into the discussion of problems with very large NTFS files copying in linux) as perhaps this might be of a general interest. It ...
  • BAD NEWS ... I had a bit too high hopes hung upon installing the Kubuntu. So much so to shifting my focus to worrying about a huge cost of user's GUI customization there. Unnecessarily - the very ...
  • OK, I see what you might have mean - it will take me truly ginormous amounts of time and effort to configure the Plasma desktop's look, feel , and esp. its ergonomics + functionality even remotely ...
  • Replied in try background
    indeed - yes, I didn't put the simple "&" on the list of things done already. Also, there were more experiments of this kind, like by... putting the "cp" job to the BG --> FG --> BG --> FG... etc ...
  • This certainly is pretty impressive and problem free - am putting the ubuntu-18.04-desktop-amd64.iso install on my TODO list, thanks :) that is unless something else won't pop-up as the root-cause ...
  • Thanks, I wasn't aware of that - might be relevant - and a very good hint to check !! OTOH I can access all of my NTFS volumes: either mounted on internal SATA-3s (6x ports on MB, and additional 4x ...
  • Kathy, which SATA speed is your failed 'data" drive? Assuming that all your disks are from the XP's HW era, it might be even as slow as the SATA-1? And those drives sometimes were pretty much a ...
  • this question is about your ways of copying very large (5-8 GB and even larger) video & photo-archive NTFS files under Linux ? With windows it is easy: either by a 'drag & drop' or using a command ...
  • thanks for heads-up - very discouraging indeed, but... alas it does tally (in a very small way, as I'm not even 1/10 as experienced as the reviewer is) with what was happening on my DT with ...
  • I wonder if there are perhaps some with a hands-on experience already??? concerning the install and then attempts to make it work with the newest: (1) my own experience of the past few days is rather ...
  • Indeed, my 18.2 is installed since quite a time ago - and configured to my taste, so it acts and feels as it should = by a pretty substantial outlay of my time and effort :) . Thus, clearly I like ...
  • Ah, can you, pray, dear sir tell me whether there is a way of a "true upgrade path" from 18.2 to 18.3 - such that all my customizations, fine-tunings, add-ons, etc. will be preserved in good shape? ...
