Hey guys,
I’m currently listening to this week’s episode of Destination Linux, & I have a suggestion about GRUB that may be useful. If you want Ubiquity to not install grub, running “ubiquity -b” will be of use to you. In my experience, it hasn’t stopped Ubuntu from automatically mounting my EFI partition when I log into my Ubuntu partition, but it does prevent Ubuntu from overwriting the existing GRUB on the EFI partition.
I hope this helps. 🙂

Hey I really like the way you had your guest Co-Host, both entertaining and informative.

I really liked your interview with Martin Wimpress especially just before getting to meet him at Linuxfest Northwest! Great guy from a rural area like myself.

So I have a problem I thought I’d ask you about?

Hey has anyone else seen this: In Clementine the Spotify plugin no longer works correctly. I used to be able to access saved music and playlists. But now I can’t see my spotify playlists. It will however play an old saved Clementine playlist from before things broke.

Thanks guys, keep up the great work!
