    [SOLVED] Re: Seeking help with ssh-server set up

    NO!!!!!! Ubuntu doesn't have a root password and you don't need it. That is bad information. In fact, attempting to ssh into an Ubuntu system using root shouldn't be allowed by default. It is a bad...

    [SOLVED] Re: Seeking help with ssh-server set up

    ssh-server is one of the easiest things to get working. The defaults "just work" and are secure enough for use on a LAN.

    Re: File structure and permission assitance

    All Unix-like OSes use a PATH environment variable just the exact way that MS-Windows does, so there is nothing new happening. Your Desktop isn't in the path, so if you want to run a program located...
  4. Re: umask, file copy, file creation, directory creation - I'm confused, please help

    You can force the permissions used on Unix systems .... via the mount options. This is well traveled and well answered in the different mount manpages AND in hundreds of forum posts here.

  5. Re: umask, file copy, file creation, directory creation - I'm confused, please help

    What file system is used? That's always relevant. If they have a native Linux/POSIX compliant file system, then the permissions should carry over. With FAT32/exFAT/NTFS, then all bets are off. You...

    snaps don't like it when the system isn't internet connected. Maybe switching to a similar, different, solution like appimages or flatpaks would solve the issue? Those 2 other solutions aren't as...

  9. [ubuntu] Re: Repurposing an old fat 32 external Hard Drive.

    FAT32 shouldn't be allowed to be larger than 64G by MSFT standards. All sorts of inefficiencies start happening when those are larger than 32G.

    Of course, the limits added by MSFT in the 2000s...

    Re: Virtualbox - Ubuntu - LAMP stack

    I would never recommend using virtualbox for running any Linux server.

    Standard support for all versions of Ubuntu prior to 18.04 has ended, so you won't get much help.

  13. Re: umask, file copy, file creation, directory creation - I'm confused, please help

    Technically correct, but it would drive me nuts wondering whether I'd accidentally resent ~/ permissions.

  15. [ubuntu] Re: Repurposing an old fat 32 external Hard Drive.
