Install deb file from official Chrome download, this will also add custom repository for next update

Run with this command
google-chrome-stable --no-sandbox

because Chrome not allow root user to run this with default setup. I my self create new .desktop files with that argument


I created a .desktop file like this.

the --test-type gets rid of the sandbox warning message

im not sure if it does anything else but... it gets rid of the warning message.

now, can you guys tell me where the other chrome .desktop file is so i can get it out of my menu? i cant find it.
thanks.

Hi sinc, it should be /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop

Tip: If you name your custom .desktop launcher exactly the same as the one in /usr/share/applications/ i.e. google-chrome.desktop and put it in ~/.local/share/applications, then it will have priority (only that one will show in the Menu)
Advantage is that when you (later) update google-chrome, the menu entry stays the same (your custom launcher in ~/.local/share/applications)
Also, if you add --disable-infobars to the Exec= line it won't show the annoying warning about security.

2. is there a way to cleanly remove the driver and install the synaptic version or do I need to start over with a fresh install of the OS?


If you used dkms (from github instructions), the driver could be exactly the same as when you install from Synaptic, but anyway, you can remove it manually, I think it's in /lib/modules/4.15.0-22-generic/updates (or do a search for "8812au.ko")

Quote:
4. Do you really think if I just right-clicked the changes folder and used 'copy' (assuming this is an option, I didnt check) and pasted a copy of the folder to /mnt/home it wouldn't work correctly? How would it mess it up?

I had the experience that sometimes filemanagers refuse to copy some special filetypes, so using cp from terminal is more safe.

Quote:
5. Can I ask about the reason why ramsize has to be set to a higher number? I would have thought it was always at 100%. Why is it set at 60% by default?

The reason I mentioned the option to set the ramsize to higher value was that I thought you said without the EXIT: it would be too slow doing all the upgrades.
(which is true, with EXIT: the changes are running in tmpfs (= ramdisk , not to confuse with RAM used by the system), so, running much faster)
Honestly, I don't know why the tmpfs size is by default 60%, perhaps it's more safe, maybe someone else can explain.
I've seen on the forum that people set it to 90% or even 100%, I'm not really sure if it's OK (risk of crashing ?), better keep the default I'd say.

On XenialDog, run: lspci -nnk

Look for the Network Controller. This should be your WiFi device.

Report the adapter name and the kernel module being used.

You probably need the firmware for the iwlwifi driver. Check on Page 1 about getting the firmware package.

Run: lspci -nnk | grep nvidia

If it says "nvidia", the driver is installed.
