Happy Birthday Ubuntu

Today Ubuntu turns 13.

The first release was Ubuntu 4.10 Each Ubuntu release has a version number that consists of the year and month number of the release. For example, the first release was Ubuntu 4.10 as it was released on 20 October 2004.

I’ve been using Ubuntu since version 5.04 (not always, I regularly switch between Debian GNU/Linux, Linux Mint and Ubuntu).

Phatch broken in Linux

After installing Linux Mint 18.2 LTS MATE, I noticed that Phatch could not start.

Searching the forums I found a solution, unfortunately it didn’t work for me.

Fortunately there is a newer version in the Ubuntu repositories, so I downloaded and installed the artfull version (Ubuntu 17.10).

Resumed Linux support

January 7 I resumed Linux support due to the demand for support because of the End Of Life of Linux Mint 13 LTS, Ubuntu LTS versions 12.04 and Windows Vista.

The service is still free if you come to my place.
I don’t have transportation, so I can only visit you if it’s not to far by public transport, and you pay the expences.

If necessary I can give remote support by mail, messenger service or phone.
