Unable to lock screen orientation in 21.10
ru flag

I recently upgraded from 21.04 to 21.10 using the do-release-upgrade command. One minor nuisance I've encountered is the screen orientation occasionally switching from landscape to portrait when I'm moving the laptop around. In 21.04, I was able to lock the orientation easily using a button in the system menu. This button is absent in 21.10 on the same machine.

Looking for an alternative way to lock the ...

Ubuntu 21.10 gnome-terminal doesn't maximize/un-maximize to original 80x24 size correctly

Ubuntu 21.10. My gnome-terminal opens to a standard 80x24 size window. That's fine.

However, if I maximize the window to the size of my display (1920x1080) and then immediately un-maximize the window, it returns to a 80x23 size window. Then I have to manually reset the window size to 80x24 using the "Advanced" menu in gnome-terminal.

And, in fact, every time that I maximize/un-maximize the gnome-t ...

Ubuntu 21.10 - Thunderbird 91.x.x drops (movemail) mbox support!
ru flag

I just upgraded from Ubuntu 21.04 to Ubuntu 21.10.

Baring a few glitches here and there, it's now running ok.

However, I just discovered that Thunderbird 91.x.x removed movemail support! That means that I've lost support for my /var/mail/* mboxes!

Other than installing another mail program, like possibly Evolution, is there any way to get to my mboxes again?

I'm very new to linux and not nearly as technically inclined as a lot of you in the community. Any help would be appreciated.
