Do we have something for this?
 
5:57 AM
Is this post an answer? I think it's more just a comment
 
I'm not sure. The question contains the wrong assumption that after pressing Ctrl+Alt+F12 one must reboot. This addresses that. Since the question is asking why that is so, an explanation of how it is not so might be sufficient to make something an answer.
 
@EliahKagan I've never seen that and I didn't find anything
I wonder where the newline is
 
That is also what I am wondering.
 
@EliahKagan maybe some other post should be edited in any case since the GUI doesn't run in tty7 by default these days on various versions...
 
I don't know when this happens, though.
I guess I could weaken the wording in my answer to avoid implying that it is always on tty7.
 
6:14 AM
@EliahKagan I was looking for questions about it
I found this for Kubuntu but not the complete guide I was hoping for! I guess things have diverged
And now we are not sure where we'll find the GUI on any given Ubuntu...
 
We should have something about where it is in every release of every flavor.

seems on-topic to me - the interpretation of that error message is about the software that produces the message and thus on-topic
not OT "EOL" - the release was supported when the question was asked; it doesn't really qualify for any close reason as far as I can tell (unless it turns out to be a duplicate)
dupe, after which a merge should perhaps be considered

@EliahKagan yes!
 
@Natty tp
^^ @Zanna Thanks. I guess I could have done that myself. Sorry.
@Zanna Would it really be worth it to make such a Q&A though?
One would have to test with them all.
 
@EliahKagan no problem at all!
@EliahKagan I think it would
@EliahKagan we could ask for help
and no rush
 
It might differ across major updates.
 
that's true

@EliahKagan Why?
 
As I understand it, it's asking how to install VirtualBox on an external drive and how to create virtual machines on that same external drive that will be used to run Ubuntu. Unless the host system also happens to be Ubuntu (in which case it is about running VirtualBox in Ubuntu, and is thus about Ubuntu), I don't think that's really about Ubuntu.
 
I'm not sure if it's really OT. We have this question in which host is Windows and it's still open.
 
@Kulfy Right, but that involves installing Ubuntu.
 
And the above too. I want to install ubuntu 18.04 in Virtualbox
 
10:53 AM
Installing VirtualBox on an external drive and making it put virtual machines on the external drive doesn't involve doing anything with Ubuntu, even if it will be used to run Ubuntu once it is successfully set up that way.
I guess it could be considered on-topic with the answer, "This is unaffected by what guest OS you run after you set it up."
I just don't see how this is more related to Ubuntu than if someone asked for a Windows download link for installing VirtualBox and mentioned that they wanted to run Ubuntu using it.
...Unless the host system is Ubuntu.
 
Hm.. fair point.
 
On the other hand, you have a point too, in that the OP may not know that this doesn't involve doing anything specific with Ubuntu.
Like, returning to the analogy, if someone asked for a Windows download link for "the version of VirtualBox for Ubuntu virtual machines," that would arguably be on-topic and should be answered by explaining that no specific version of VirtualBox is required.
 
I'm holding back my close vote since I'm not sure about that specific one.

@Natty fp - though it would be a better answer if it had way more information

@Natty tp - turns out it's copied from balsamiq.com/wireframes/desktop/docs/linux
 
should we delete that?
 
Yes, but I am wondering also if we should report it as spam.
@karel It looks like you first noticed the problem and provided the feedback that generated that message, which I noticed. Thanks, and I apologize for not searching the web for strings from the post before giving my own wrong feedback.
@Zanna It might not be intended as spam. I'll flag NAA and vote to delete.
 
also voted to delete
 
Yeah, my VTD was the third and it's gone.
Thanks.

@EliahKagan that saves me wondering how to flag it :)
 
@EliahKagan The accepted answer to that question is correct and Draw.io is free software, but the accepted answer doesn't go far enough because it doesn't mention that the Draw.io snap package can be installed via Ubuntu Software. Draw.io is faster than Dia because it's easier to use and it makes higher resolution charts and diagrams. For wireframing you need a draw application that works fast.
