On a sidenote: I found the #Proton version that made #Steam windows games run on #Ubuntu 22.04 for my #Lenovo Thinkpad P15. It's 6.3-8.

Okay, gonna give another shot today.

Last time I tried a couple weeks ago, it ended in unmitigated disaster after hours of trying. Let's hope this week goes better. I need to at least get a basic distro working so I can start testing Linux builds of game, even if I can't get it working well enough for day-to-day development.

I'm making a couple changes from last time I tried:

  1. I'm simplifying my monitors. I normally have 5 monitors, operating from both the ports on the PCI GPU as well as the built-into-the-motherboard GPU ports. Windows was able to handle that with no problem, but I think it's an uncommon enough setup that it's making Linux choke. I think I can make it work with 4 monitors on just the dedicated GPU.

  2. I'm trying more distros. Before I shut down Windows, I'll have 7 different labelled thumb drives: Linux , , , , , , and

Unfortunately, I can't currently switch from NVIDIA graphics cards because of a vendor requirement of one of my clients, so that's just a limitation I'll need to live with.

Here's hoping I can get it to work this time.

Installed 12.04 on this ThinkPad a while back, then upgraded it to 14.04. I wonder if it can go all the way through 16.04, 18.04, 20.04, 22.04 and successfully end up on 24.04...

A screenshot of Ubuntu 14.04 desktop with a terminal running neofetch, a telegram window with the Linux Matters channel showing, and an update manager dialog telling me I should upgrade..

Bon, #Ubuntu 24.04 est impressionnant de stabilité mais #Firefox en snap pour mon vieux x280, ça n'est pas gérable.

Retour en .deb et je vous redis si c'est bien un problème de ressources ou si c'est autre chose.

Ever needed to do a clean MySQL / MariaDB installation on WSL2 / Ubuntu?

I've written down the steps I used just recently, when cleaning up a previous broken MySQL installation: https://duerrenberger.dev/blog/2024/06/04/clean-reinstall-of-mysql-on-ubuntu/

Linux and macOS users, please advise?

I need to specify my preferences for a work station setup. I have been using Kubuntu for both my professional and personal machines for the last 7 years, so I'd been thinking of getting a Dell laptop and installing Kubuntu. I would just accept that things like Outlook and Teams would only work in the browser, and that I may have to use a virtual machine in the rare cases that I really need to run something on Windows.

However, I am now considering a MacBook, instead. An advantage would be that all my employer's office software would just run, while the OS is still Unix-like. Potential disadvantages include 1) having to get used to a new OS, 2) maybe having less freedom?, and 3) all my external hard drives with backups and data from earlier projects are using the ext4 file system, and I hear that macOS doesn't like that.

Are there any people out there who have experience using both Linux and macOS, and can share some insights on which they prefer and why? Thanks!

I think I've whinged here before about my difficulties with #Shotwell after switching from #Ubuntu to #Debian. Well, I've fixed it, and I've published a gist in case anyone wants to do the same.

Ce soir, je ressuscite un vieil ordi portable.

Je suis assez déçue du comportement de Canonical (Ubuntu) et leur manière de forcer à utiliser leur propre store en rendant beaucoup plus complexe l'installation de fichiers qui devraient s'installer en un double clic (cf https://news.itsfoss.com/ubuntu-24-04-disappointment/), du coup j'essaye Linux Mint.

I installed the PPA of LibreOffice because the Snap version is garbage. However, thankfully, the other Snaps I use aren't terrible. I will continue to vary the ways I install programs, using the best versions of each. As this is a good way to approach installing software on Ubuntu!
