Hi

Well Imgur is still working by clicking on the G+ - I will let you know as I find others.

Looks like some sites have been pro-active in keeping it easy

Hi emegra,

Thanks for the info ( I am on MeWe) but I am not looking for a replacement for G+.  What I mean is, for example,  I log into Imgur by clicking on the G+ logo on their front page.  What happens when G+ is no longer there.  What happens to all the snapshots n stuff I have on Imgur that I get to via the G+ login.

There are also several other sites where I log in via this method as it was easier at the time to simply click G+

Regards Zeb...

With Google Plus disappearing soon... what happens to all those sites where you used your G+ login as a one click entry ???

Will they still work...  Do you have to log into them before "Goodbye Day" and choose a different method.  Will you lose all your data.  Can you remember every site where you used your G+ login?   Jeesh this is going to be fun...

Regards Zeb...

Perhaps it's time to coin the Phrase

"Kernalitus" to go with "Hoppertitus"

Installation / Re: BGH Positivo AT 300 Auto Sleep When Working

Hi ragallo,

You need to encapsulate the terminal output with the Insert, Code # function.  For extra long outputs, please use the Spoiler, Sp function.  If youíre a Chromium Browser and/or a Google Chrome user, please don't combine these functions.  For some reason, they donít work well together with these browsers.  The formatting gets all goofed up.  Only use one or the other  ;)

These forum functions preserve the original format of the output.  This makes it easier for future visitors to relate to their own issues.  These functions are found in the forum editor, above the,  :-[ Embarrassed and  the :'( Cry emoticon respectively.  Use the Preview button to check how it'll look after you post it to forum.  I hope this helps  ;).

I have done it for you this time :)

Regards Zeb...

ok so now I have the problem that my Pep freezes when it gets to the desktop - mouse and keyboard.

So I removed all nvidia drivers - I removed reference to the nvidia ppa and I can get to the pep desktop with nouveau

the minute I re-install nvidia - even 415 it freezes.

So is this another case of too many leftovers from too many installs to be able to back it out and  get it working.  Remembering this is the one on the hwe

Regards Zeb...

ps the new install is UKUU v 5.01 kernel and nvidia 4.18 and its working perfectly  - the old install is still there but can't get at it via desktop unless I go into recovery mode again and return to nouveau

Hi it then came up with

Code: [Select]
zebedee@i7-peppermint ~ $ sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-nvidia-418
[sudo] password for zebedee:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies.
 xserver-xorg-video-nvidia-418 : Depends: xserver-xorg-core (>= 2:1.19.6-1ubuntu2~)
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
zebedee@i7-peppermint ~ $

so using your same principle I did

Code: [Select]
sudo apt install xserver-xorg-core

Which worked - I then did the first command again which worked and then I was able to use

Code: [Select]
sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall

Which worked.

Regards Zeb...

went back to nouveau
rebooted

Code: [Select]
zebedee@i7-peppermint ~ $ sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall
