    1. If you want to compile youself you can pass the --with-features=huge to the configure script. Note, however, this does not enable the different language bindings because those are mostly optional and also the various GUIs need to enabled specifically, because you can have only one gui.

      This explains why the standard vim package on ubuntu doesn't have GUI support (I was going to say because it wouldn't know which GUI you needed, but I think it would based on the Ubuntu variant: GNOME, KDE, etc.) (maybe because it wouldn't know whether you wanted GUI support at all)

      I was going to say because it wouldn't know which GUI you needed, but I think it would based on the Ubuntu variant: GNOME, KDE, etc.

      found answer to that: https://hyp.is/NyJRxIgqEeuNmWuaScborw/askubuntu.com/questions/345593/how-to-build-vim-with-gui-option-from-sources

      so you have to install a different package with GUI support, like vim-gtk or vim-athena

    1. please, for the love of god do NOT use Mint as a source of inspiration for a derivative distro. If you like Cinnamon or Mate, fine, but holy CHRIST do not let your infrastructure get as criminally sloppy as Mint's. No unholy mixing of Debian and Ubuntu debs into some kind of Frankenbuntu, no namespace collisions, no ... well, no being Mint in general, please!Ideally, I really, really hope you'll continue to support Ubuntu as a primary platform, regardless of what you do with Pop!_OS. But hooboy, do not turn into another Mint, please.
    1. Considering Canonical has pulled resources from this project, the path for continued third-party development of Unity will not be easy. It is my hope that they are successful and can become another shining example of the power of forking, like the MATE project.
    1. Switching to Ubuntu from Apple If you are coming from Apple’s operating system and just using Ubuntu for the first time, we can help make the transition a little smoother.

    1. The heart of Ubuntu is a collection of ‘deb’ packages which are tested and integrated so that they work well as a set. Debs are optimised for highly structured dependency management, enabling you to combine debs very richly while ensuring that the necessary software dependencies for each deb (themselves delivered as debs) are installed on your machine.

      How to install dependencies for VK Desktop on Ubuntu 20.10

    1. This is a by-product of the success of Ubuntu. Whether people like it or not, most software available for Linux will target Ubuntu first. There may be packages available later for other distros / systems, but on the whole, you can be sure a software developer will target Ubuntu if they target Linux.
    2. And Unity ditching for something that’s still not on par with it, had already broken a bit my trust in Ubuntu as a stable option at work. Now snap is coming closer and broader…

    1. Pop_os does not have many differences from ubuntu, it mostly theme + some tweaks. If you wanna try pop_os you can migrate, this way of migration just install pop_os tweaks over ubuntu. But, actually, I don't think you will fall in love with pop_os if you don't like ubuntu...

    2. Muchos grupos no predican su ser social en la idea de un individuo autónomo y separado; en estos casos se podría hablar, más propiamente, de regímenes de persona relacionales, en el que las personas existen en relación con los demás tanto como con, digamos, los ancestros, los seres espirituales, los seres naturales, etcétera

    1. Ubuntu phones and laptops never became popular with hardware makers, carriers, or consumers, and software development seemed to be slowing down. While Unity 8 was shipping on phones and tablets, it has never been stable enough to become the default on the desktop, which uses Unity 7. Canonical's work on creating a new desktop display server, Mir, has also been slow.

      primary factors.

    1. sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration

      This worked well for me with a Dell Vostro 3550 and Ubuntu Server 14.04.4 virtualised inside VirtualBox (Version 5.0.16 r105871). When you run this command, the shell will present the configurator and the choices this user recommends are valid mostly. By contrast, I chose the Dell SK-8125 as a reasonably close match to the Vostro 3550. I also set the left Alt key to function as the AltGr key and this solved the problem. Now, if I want to type the pipe ( | ) character, I use the key combination

      ALT+~
      

      This is not the most intuitive solution; but it works!

    1. AppArmor

      Still lacking good profiles for the common software packages... :-/

    2. several filesystems show performance improvements including XFS and Btrfs

      Now using btrfs on my notebook. Works fine!

      One of the reasons for using it (from btrfs.wiki.kernel.org):

      "SSD (Flash storage) awareness (TRIM/Discard for reporting free blocks for reuse) and optimizations (e.g. avoiding unnecessary seek optimizations, sending writes in clusters, even if they are from unrelated files. This results in larger write operations and faster write throughput)"

      Since btrfs once ate my data (pre 1.0) I did several crash simulations to boost my confidence beforehand.

    1. Freya inherits core components from Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS such as the Linux kernel (version 3.13),

      I love elementary but I need the newer kernel of 14.10 (btrfs!). It's sad that we can't have both :-(
