  1. [ubuntu] Re: Installing ubuntu 20 in a Desktop with no VGA port

    This might be a problem with your TV, e.g. it does not like the resolution and frequency the PC has switched into. Some TV's only want 1920x1080 at exactly 60 Hz when a PC is attached to it. Try any...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Installing ubuntu 20 in a Desktop with no VGA port

    I own a similar PC: Acer Aspire XC-605. It also has 1 x HDMI port. And Ubuntu works tip top here. You said you have 2 x HDMI ports? Did you try changing ports, e.g. connecting the HDMI cable into...

    [ubuntu] Re: Copy OS while using it ...??

    Live sessions (e.g. Ubuntu CD or USB stick that you used to install the OS) would work too. And there's also "CloneZilla Live":
    https://clonezilla.org/clonezilla-live.php

    You boot that up and let...

  8. [SOLVED] Re: VirtualBox unusable graphics when run over ssh -X

    You can get more speed out of "ssh -X" if you play with the parameters and apply some tweaks. I myself use this command sequence a lot:

    ssh -c aes128-ctr -C -X youruser@your.target.server.name

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

    Not really surprising, is it? In my experience FAT filesystems get corrupted rather easy.



    If nothing important is on that disk: Nuke that FAT filesystem and replace it with something more...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: umask, file copy, file creation, directory creation - I'm confused, please help

    Does that even matter? Because if your $HOME directory /home/yourusername has its permissions set to "rwx --- ---" (aka "chmod 700") then it does not matter what permissions a file inside that...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 20-04 on Parallels (M1 Mac) rtl8812au driver issue

    Wrong interface name, in my opinion. If the RTL88xx driver compiled and loaded correctly, then the interface name should be something lile "wlan0".

    Can you please check if the driver gets actually...

  14. [ubuntu] Re: Cross referencing folder so size can be chnaged

    Yes, and it didn't make much sense. There is no location named "LIBRARY" out of the box. Whatever that is you see there, none of us here can tell what it could be or where that came from. Try posting...

    Riiight, I forgot about the jail part. Alternative: Docker containers maybe? I find they are easier to work with than jails anyway...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Can't link to files in /usr/bin, but can copy

    Hardlinks have to be on the same filesystem, because you're basically addressing the same inodes on the disk, just with 2 x (or more) different filenames at the same time. If source and target...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Can't link to files in /usr/bin, but can copy

    Why that command?? He doesn't need to take ownership. Everything inside /usr/bin belongs to "root". Anything else is asking for trouble.
  18. Re: How can I make terminal print better organized text?

    There are commands such as "column" that you can pipe output through. Example with e.g. /etc/fstab :

    Then don't. :)
    It was necessary in my case. As I said above: Tweak it as needed.




    "who" checks if the user is logged in or not. So my example above doesn't care about "on logout". Only...

    Re: "file did not match its source copy"

    You could use smartmontools .... You'd maybe have to install it into the live session first, it might not be there per default. Or maybe it is? I honestly don't know. If it's not there:
