  1. [ubuntu] Re: Problem with Unity drop down menu behavior

    That doesn't sound very "Precise" now does it!
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Problem with Unity drop down menu behavior

    No, it's not the HUD. I'm talking about the pre-defined list of options in any menu in any GUI that appears when you select the current value. It doesn't matter what program or settings window I am...
  3. [ubuntu] Problem with Unity drop down menu behavior

    I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 in a VM using VMWare on an OSX host. I have yet to use Unity other than this one install, so I don't know if what I'm seeing is a new 'feature' of Unity or a bug or setting...
  4. Nautilus error when starting from terminal

    whenever I launch Nautilus from the terminal, I get a huge list of errors in the terminal, but then nautilus opens and runs fine. Nautilus also works normally when started from the menu and...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Best approach for running Ubuntu w/ max security on Macbook

    Good point. I was more thinking along the lines that the VM would be less secure since all security settings could be rendered null and void if the native OSX settings weren't appropriate. But if the...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: Best approach for running Ubuntu w/ max security on Macbook

    I am, I'm just being extra cautious. We don't deal with any sensitive data at work. My main concern is protecting my personal data/traffic with the limited control I have over what I can change,...
  7. [ubuntu] Best approach for running Ubuntu w/ max security on Macbook

    I have a Macbook Pro from work that I will be taking on a business trip and will be getting on public wifi. I don't have Linux installed natively on it (nor am I allowed to) but I do have an Ubuntu...
  8. [Linux Mint_] Re: GNOME 3- before I give up on it completely...

    Like I said in the first post, I'm using LinuxMint, not Ubuntu. I'm pretty sure that is one of the added packages in the default Mint install but I may be mistaken.
  9. [Linux Mint_] Re: GNOME 3- before I give up on it completely...

    I think you missed the point of my question, but you ended up answering it anyway. I don't want to have to tweak every little thing that annoys me about GNOME 3. I don't want a specific fix for every...
  10. [Linux Mint_] GNOME 3- before I give up on it completely...

    I've been using GNOME 3 for a few days now and there are so many things about it I don't like, that I'm just about to give up on it completely. But before I do, I thought I'd get some community input...

    [all variants] Re: Building new PC: Suggestions?

    That's about what I had in mind. Only I will probably go with two 2TB HDs and probably just stick with the on board sound card. It's not an HTPC, and I have another machine set up as one in the...

    [all variants] Building new PC: Suggestions?

    I'm getting ready to order parts to build a new PC and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for hardware. I haven't built one in a few years and am not very familiar with the current...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: Trouble with Samba Shares (Ubuntu to Ubuntu)

    My sentiments exactly! I don't see a way to add rep points or thank you in the forums. BUT THANK YOU!
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Trouble with Samba Shares (Ubuntu to Ubuntu)

    SUCSESS!!!!!

    Finally got it. That was it. I needed to re-mount the NTFS partition after I restarted. So your tweak to the smb.conf file is what fixed it, it just didn't work at first because I had...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: Trouble with Samba Shares (Ubuntu to Ubuntu)

    I added the line

    force user = vaio

    and restarted the vaio, then restarted samba and nautilus on droid. Now the vaio doesn't show up in the network folder on the droid machine. So I connected to...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: Trouble with Samba Shares (Ubuntu to Ubuntu)

    Yes, the yp folder is on an NTFS partition. Does that have something to do with the problem?

    Why change the user name to morbius though?
  18. [SOLVED] Re: Trouble with Samba Shares (Ubuntu to Ubuntu)

    Just now saw your edit. I'm on the other machine now but I ran the ls -al command and it listed:


    drwx----- 1 vaio vaio

    drwx----- 1 vaio vaio

    -rw----- 1 vaio vaio [file name]-repeated for...

  20. [SOLVED] Re: Trouble with Samba Shares (Ubuntu to Ubuntu)

    Ping response was almost instant:
    PING 192.168.0.18 (192.168.0.18) 56(84) bytes of data.

    So no problem there. Neither side has an encrypted home directory.

    BTW, the IP was typed correctly- but...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: Trouble with Samba Shares (Ubuntu to Ubuntu)

    As a last ditch effort to solve this problem, I'm going to try to describe it a bit better and see if anyone catches something we may have missed.

    System 1 (droid): LinuxMint 11 (2.6.38-10 kernel)...
  22. [SOLVED] Re: Trouble with Samba Shares (Ubuntu to Ubuntu)

    Webmin looks interesting. Kind of like a FreeNAS interface for Linux. I would much rather just have Samba working properly first though. It worked fine in earlier versions of Ubuntu.
  23. [SOLVED] Re: Trouble with Samba Shares (Ubuntu to Ubuntu)

    still no luck connecting to the VAIO when I booted the DROID machine from a LiveCD. But at least I know the problem is on the VAIO.
  24. [SOLVED] Re: Trouble with Samba Shares (Ubuntu to Ubuntu)

    great idea with the LiveCD test to see if the VAIO share is set up right! I'll give it a shot and let you know.
  25. [SOLVED] Re: Trouble with Samba Shares (Ubuntu to Ubuntu)

    I performed a complete uninstall/reinstall of all the packages you listed except libsmbclient on both machines. Then I re-enabled the shares in Samba and still get the same error. I have a few less...
