I would recomend booting back ontot the live USB you used to install ubuntu, opening a terminal with these keystrokes: Ctrl+Alt+T and pasting this command into it : sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair && sudo apt update && sudo apt install -y boot-repair boot-info this will fix your dual boot, putting back grub. you'll ...

This is an awesome question, and I had actually been considering doing this for a while. Ended up finally taking the plunge, and it seems to work fine. (I used the latest version of Ubuntu Desktop and Windows 10 v.1903 for this.) While I'm unsure about whether BitLocker's system drive encryption would play nice with Linux's dm-crypt/LUKS encryption, ...

The error was a start job is running for hold until boot process finishes up This was caused by the Edit 1b form the OP. I solved this by: booting into recovery and choosing "drop to root shell" sudo apt-get remove plymouth && sudo apt-get remove xserver-xorg-video-intel sudo apt-get install -f --reinstall lightdm sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm sudo ...

Press Esc whenever you have the chance while there's animation on that screen, it'll go in text boot mode where you might be able to catch what's causing the issue. maybe there's a hanging job or something.

You can run the Grub Customizer program you have installed with Grub itself. You can find it in your apps

I would not expect that it works. When you installed Ubuntu on SSD with your laptop, the install was done specifically for the hardware and configuration of your laptop. Thus it cannot work on your main PC because it has different hardware and configuration. Your main PC is also likely to miss bootloader tricks that was done on your laptop while installing ...

The minimum disk space required to install Ubuntu is 10GB, and the recommended disk space is at least 25GB. If the information in the screenshots is correct, you do not have much of an alternative except to do a fresh installation of Ubuntu. Furthermore all the information in the 4 screenshots can't be correct, because the results of Windows Disk Management ...

After boot on which OS you are not able to see the hard drive.? if it's on the windows than no need to panic because when we dual boot our machine than you are operating two different operating system on the same machine. In which drive you have installed Ubuntu you will not able to see that partition of the drive in your windows. If your issue isn't ...

This is difficult to say and realy depends on your hardware and also on your way to use the computer. If you have a SSD you may will not get a shorter booting time (Ubuntu vs. Win10) out of the box. Also the battery time (if using notebook) will decrease with Ubuntu / Linux compared to Win10 (for standard installation). With Ubuntu / Linux the update ...

"Will it be difficult to use and understand Linux? Will Linux be faster than Windows 10?" Well the first answer that comes to mind here is : "depends on the operating system you choose" Among the linux community we have a little moniker for them : "distro" And you've instinctively posted on askubuntu, which is a testament to how much of a pole position ...

Welcome to the Linux community! First of all, I would like to clarify some things to you to help you make up you mind on which OS to pick. Nowadays, you'll need to take into account the fact that there are several Linux distributions (distros) for different purposes. I'd bet you want a desktop distro, so Ubuntu 18.04 LTS can work for you perfectly. In ...

Is Ubuntu faster than Windows is a broad topic that depends on many topics including your computer's hardware. Try running the Ubuntu live USB (which can also be used to install Ubuntu) from a live session without installing it to your computer's hard drive. Then you can compare Ubuntu's performance with Windows 10's performance overall and on a per ...

Ok, I solved this! I already had Ubuntu installed, so I shrinked the drive down to given more space and created an ntfs partition. I then installed Win10 on there. Since the boot-up was replaced by Windows MBR, I then used the Ubuntu live USB to do a 'boot-repair' for the OS and install grub back. I can now chose any o/s to boot from now and all working! ...

I was having the same issue even with Hyper-V turned off. The link below solved my issue. Minimum memory needs to be set to 2048 MB. This is solved. I had configured 512 MB RAM and 128 VRAM, so the RAM was too small. This was to stop Linux from creating large swap partitions, but now I have configured 2048 MB RAM and everything seems to work fine.source

So I want to play Pubg lite, is there anyway to play it using ubuntu? Natively: No. It requires dotnet as we do not have that. The best next alternative is virtualization. If you have a Windows license you can also dual boot. And if I installed windows 10 in virtual box is it possible to play it smoothly? Yes, Windows virtualised is almost the same as ...

Open the command prompt, type either ubuntu config --default-user root or lxrun /setdefaultuser root. Hit Enter. Next, open the Linux Bash shell and it will log you as root without asking a password. So you can then use the following command to reset your forgotten user password: passwd user_name When done, open the command prompt and run this command: ...

The NVIDIA drivers included on the disc are responsible for making the system freeze. In order to mitigate this, we will need to disable them momentarily. Highlight the 'Try Ubuntu without installing' option and press the E key. Add nouveau.modeset=0, I usually add it before quiet splash. Then press F10 to boot the disc. Ubuntu should respond as normal, ...

I found there's an option at the bottom right corner of the window. Pick the icon between the folder and recording icon. Choose 'Virtual Screen' in the dropdown then you'll be provided a whole bunch of resizing options. Pick one that fits your testing purposes.

As suggested in the comments, Ubuntu can't be installed on "Dynamic disks". They can be converted to basic disks using a third-party partition manager. See this question for more details:Ubuntu installation problem with dynamic disks

Is there a way to "upgrade" to the full version of Ubuntu 18.04LTS or install Ubuntu 19.04 on WSL? No. WSL is meant to have the many capabilities of the command line to the windows system. Will I be able to install a full version of Ubuntu 18.04LTS or preferably Ubuntu 19.04 and run OpenCPN in WSL2 this June when Ubuntu 19.04 is available on the ...

I found a useful link : https://github.com/Microsoft/WSL/issues/3631, @jw-redpanda put some light in my problem. He mentions a installation problem at MySql 8.0 using WSL in windows. The MySQl doesn´t start. He presents a workaround, well for me I was able to install version 5.7 at least, but I wasn't able to proceed after step 5, when you have the version 8 ...
