Which phone Zeb ?

I checked a week or so ago and it's not available for the Note9 (just the S9 and S9+) :(

I bought the plain ol S7 refurbished from them to support them as well. It is in mint condition, not a mark on it.

Regards Zeb...


you can see more here

So far - just seems like any other phone   :D :D :D

For your panel problem - automatic or primary does not always work.

You will need to click on the down arrow next to Output and select the actual monitor you wish it to appear on.

Not ideal but the results work

I love Holidays but it's great to be back home.

I will be doing some YouTube Live System Updating tomorrow to see how many of my many Systems bork after 8 days away ?

Should be interesting

Hi pdvossen11,

Thank you for your post.

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've done this for you this time.  Many thanks  :)

Regards Zeb...

So if you have the PPA installed - is it now safe to remove it ?

The Ubuntu Report simply provide Canonical with information regarding Ubuntu version
OEM/Manufacturer - Device model number - BIOS info - CPU details - GPU details - Installed RAM - Partition Info - Display(s) details - Auto-login status - Live Patching status - Desktop environment - Display server - Timezone

I do believe it does this once.  No personal Data or IP address is captured.

The Popularity Contest however is continuous "The popularity contest project is an attempt to map the usage of Ubuntu packages. This site publishes the statistics gathered from report send by users of the popularity-contest package. This package sends the list of packages installed and the access time of relevant files to the server weekly. Every day the server anonymizes the results and publishes this survey."
Now the fact that it says it "Anonymises" the data suggest personal information is picked up along with the App data.  Debian also use this tool but you get an opt out option during install if you read it.

With this additional information (Please correct me [anyone] if I am wrong) you are able to make a more informed choice about whether you wish to uninstall it or not.

Regards Zeb...

PS EDIT: - you heard it from the man himself in the post below. These are NOT in Peppermint by Default.  Thank You PCNetSpec for clarifying.

Now that there, is some agility  :D
