Part 1 | Part 2 Welcome, ensign, to our debrief. It sounds like you had troubling times…using…computers. Starfleet reports that citizens apparently have already encountered a form of your file system corruption problem. They report…unexplained crashes, file system corruption but no corresponding SMART data or bad blocks as a cause. I finally got to a+ Read More

Ubuntu 16.04 introduced Ubuntu Snappy on the desktop. In this video, I answer the questions "what is Ubuntu Snappy?" and "what are Snaps?". This is the inaugural episode of Linux Explained. #Snappy #Snap #Linux

Linux is a community environment. Whether it’s the professionals over at RedHat, Canonical, and Suse or the guys who got together and decided to create Hannah Montana Linux, behind every project there’s usually a community. My first attempt at Linux came in the desert in Iraq. We were building a router lab and I had+ Read More

I don’t think I’ve been more excited for a new release of Ubuntu since I first started using #Linux
Ubuntu hasn’t had the best reputation among Linux users over the past few years–with some even going so far as to call it “boring”. If you’ve been hesitant to try it out, then hold on to your seats–Ubuntu 16.04 “Xenial Xerus” is not only an exciting release, but one that has the potential to be a game changer for the Linux ecosystem.

Today John writes: I’m really liking the new Ubuntu-MATE 16.04 and strongly considering switching over to it after the official LTS comes out.

This is a explanation and demonstration video of the "apt" command which allows you to simplify command-line based package management on Debian/Ubuntu systems.

You don't need to remember the different tools to run for searching, installing, removing, etc. because it can now be done in "apt".

+X eexpress aptitude is better in terms of having more features but apt comes by default now for two years where as aptitude isn't a default.

Hi all.
I have a problem..
There is a phone (LG G4, stock rom, no root) and this phone have unmounted his sd card - just so.. without any reason. On this card was a big collection of my wife's photos. This phone belong to her.
Unfortunately this card was initialized again in the phone.
It is any way to access the datas from the previous partition? Some good recovery method/software?
I've tried PhotoRec but it shows only some datas from the latest partition.
I am using Mint 18 Mate, but eventually I can use also windows Seven.
Thnx in advance for any tips.

Try testdisk, sometimes it finds the data after a deep search

A few questions for the group [they're related] First please if you have any bias aganst ppa's, for the sake of this conversation, put them aside. Personally, I use some that I trust [like ones on OMG Ubuntu, WebUp8 for instance] but I research a LOT before installing/using them.

Okay, so there is a ppa that is providing Cinnamon 3.x for Ubuntu 16.04. In the Ubuntu Repos, they provide Cinnamon 2.x [want to say 2.8 maybe, suffice to say, 3.x is the newest version of Cinnamon, the Ubuntu Repos have an older one, one or two versions back]

Question 1: Dose anyone have any guesses as to if and/or when Cinnamon 3.x may show up in the Ubuntu Repos?

Question 2: Do you think it's worth installing Cinnamon 3.x to tinker with etc or smarter to install 2.x? [I had 2.x installed on my last set up, currently I am using the default Unity 7 in Ubuntu 16.04 64 bit]

I am leaning towards 3.x ... via the ppa for now, then if/when the repos get 3.x I could purge the ppa and go mainstream

+Can Çeralp first off, sorry, for some reason I missed the notification saying there was a response, and have been so busy I havent opened the community page since then lol

Thanks for the response, it really did answer the question [about if/when cinnamon 3.x would show up] so on to the ppa when I get a chance[probably tomorrow]

Before I even begin, allow me to save you some time. If you’re convinced that PulseAudio is going to ruin your Linux experience, then you can try the tips in this article to disable it in Ubuntu. Should you try to remove it, good luck. Yes, it’s “possible“, but it’s not something I recommend. For+ Read More

The problem listed in this article is only temporary so I originally didn't intend on writing about it but I realized it was an opportunity to further explain why people should be using the "apt" command instead of all the other apt-related tools.

"apt" command makes it very easy to install local deb files.

For those who want to learn more about the "apt" command, [Simplify Command-Line Package Management with APT instead of apt-get](http://www.howtogeek.com/234583/simplify-command-line-package-management-with-apt-instead-of-apt-get/)
Ubuntu 16.04 is the first version to include the new replacement software app, GNOME Software–and it already has a show-stopping bug. Currently, in Ubuntu 16.04, it is not possible to install third-party applications using the Software app.
