Re: Why are the repos displayed in reverse order?

It looks like they are sorted instead by date modified IE: newest to oldest

Re: Printer M2022 doesn't work

Samsung printers use a propriety printing language that is not well supported in CUPS. You likely will have a better chance of success if you use Samsung's own linux driver which can be found here:

Re: Every time I come to the forum it has logged me out.

Same thing happened to me in July 2018 when I mistakenly allowed Chrome to sync my bookmarks and it installed the settings from a pc that no longer exists. If you are using Chrome Sync too, here's what you have to do: Turn off Sync in Chrome --> delete any quick links, bookmarks etc that you have fo...

Re: Which door do I take?

Maybe it's like Cockney rhyming slang: loo = Waterloo = water, short for water closet. Not cockney, certainly slang. It is used all over the UK (and as far as I know also in Australia). There are three main theories of how 'loo' originated and a corruption of Waterloo is one of them but in that cas...

Re: Which door do I take?

Why is it called a bathroom in America, there are no baths in it! They are lavatory pans or toilets not bathrooms. Because the facility most people here use the most is the one in their home. Bathrooms here consist of either a three piece -- sink, bath tub / shower combo, and a toilet or a four pie...

Re: My computer upgrade

Assuming this is the same case you had prior to the cpu upgrade, it's logical to also assume that its existing cooling was designed for the original cpu. In post # 36, the upper interior picture shows a space for an exhaust fan directly left of the cpu and I think that would be your best option.

Re: The year-long rash of supply chain attacks against open source is getting worse

Just another 'the sky is falling' type article. We all know that computer attacks are on the increase. What's interesting about the article is what's missing in its content: -- there's no mention oh how the attackers were able to get access to the original code of the packages in order to make their...

Re: System Keep Freezing

Based on this from your system info: Processes: 237 Uptime: 20m Memory: 3.66 GiB used: 1.36 GiB (37.1%) Init: SysVinit runlevel: 5 Compilers: gcc: 6.3.0 Shell: bash v: 4.4.12 inxi: 3.0.33 I think that your best chance at improved performance would be to add more ram to your system.

Re: Interesting

Addressing people normally when you have a complaint with forum staff helps a lot. If the mod had given their name instead of cowardly hiding behind the word 'mod', a normal complaint could have been addressed. How are we supposed to know which 'mod' is writing? Let's see. In your first post you as...

Re: 4k Monitor: does it make sense?

Based on this review: https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/hp/27f I would pass on the HP. A wobble due to a flimsy stand would drive me crazy. Also keep in mind that HP doesn't manufacture monitors rather they re-brand them for the retail market. I think that you'd get a better deal by buying from...
