Hello,

If you have secure boot disabled

Yes, I have.

install as per the manual it should work as normal when using Ubuntu

Installation was OK.

...from the default windows manager, I believe this is what you see, else set ubuntu in boot options in 'bios'...

This worked also but if I choose UBUNTU, GRUB appears… this not useful.

If everything works as it should then you could try Refind...

I have installed Refind as you can read in my previous post but I have the same problem that GRUB appears when I choose UBUNTU.
It is why I have uninstalled GRUB and why I have the problem that REFIND searches for GRUB !
I wonder which line I have to write in refind.conf to achieve to start UBUNTU directly from REFIND without GRUB.

This leads to my two previous questions :

First Question :
- How to modify the Refind config File in order to be able to launch LL ?

Second question :
- on my second computer, how to install LL without GRUB ? By not creating a EFI partition ?


Both replies are important to me.

Hoping to read you soon

Regards

Marc Driver

P.S. It's a shame that Şerban created a new post on this subject rather than replying to the original thread so that everyone would be able to see the full discussion. As you can see, despite the fact that I replied to my original thread, my latest post and response to all those who were good enough to give me feedback is now detached from the original thread. Jerry, Can this kindly be corrected?

Thank you in advance.

 :)


@Mart
I don't think its been separated, Serban's post started a new page of the thread -  at the top of thread on left side you should see page 1/2  :)

So this is where I am with this...

As per trinidad's suggestions, I increased my swappiness to 80 and reduced my vfs cache pressure to 50. I also briefly downgraded zenity and zenity-common from versions 3.32.0-5 to 3.18.1.1-1 and then ran Linux Lite's 'Install Updates' again, however the same graphical glitch problem (or 'silent updates' problem as referenced by stevef, referring to earlier posts in Jan 2019 - https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/installing-software/updates-via-gui-no-indicator) still occurred.

So this is my workaround/adaptation solution -

A couple of years ago I installed Xubuntu-core and had to install Ubuntu's 'Software Updater' (Ubuntu's native update app). From my old notes, I saw that you have to install five packages to use Ubuntu's Software Updater, three of which are already installed in Linux Lite - python3-update-manager, update-manager-core, and update-notifier-common. So by simply adding two more packages via Synaptic - (Gnome) update-manager and update- notifier - you can avail yourself of Ubuntu's Software Updater in Linux Lite.

Ubuntu's Software Updater runs perfectly on my hardware without any graphical glitches/silent updates. And being interactive, the great thing about Ubuntu's Software Updater is that if, on occasion, you don't want to upgrade a particular package (e.g. an older version of libreoffice, as Şerban mentioned), you can just uncheck the package and choose not upgrade it.

One minor irritant is that Ubuntu's Software Updater also installs 'apport', Ubuntu's native bug reporting app (not needed in Linux Lite) that causes 'live' bug reporting pop-ups to appear. This function of apport can easily be disabled by going to /etc/default/apport and changing the value of enabled=1 to enabled=0.

Of course, it's understandable why Jerry and the team ring-fence their updates to avoid noobs deselecting packages willy-nilly and causing self-inflicted issues in Linux Lite. But for those with a little bit of knowledge and discernment, Ubuntu's interactive Software Updater can be quite useful in respect of avoiding upgrades of specific packages.

Footnote: If anyone has any theories as to why Ubuntu's Software Updater works perfectly on my hardware, while Linux Lite's native 'Install Updates' app doesn't, it would be interesting to hear.

Cheers

Solved. I was able to adjust a setting in Free Office. There was an aoption to choose MPCanon210CUPS, instead of just MPCannon210. That did it.

Leave UEFI enabled, just disable Secure Boot. Then let the installer auto partition, that would be the easiest overall approach.

Make sure your code is shared online on Gitlab or similar site. Then link it back here.
