    [ubuntu] Re: Setting up folders on HDD

    It probably is. You changed the ownership of /mnt/Data, and then listed its contents.
    To view the ownershiip of /mnt/Data itself, you need to tell ls to show the directory rather than to show its...

    [ubuntu] Re: Listening connections on my server

    Port 68 is bootpc - it is normal, and listens for DHCP responses.
    Port 51820 appears to be the kernel listening rather than a process. The only time I have seen this is when wireguard is configured...

    su -l AccountB
    simulates a login by AccountB, which amongst other setup, sets the working directory to the user's home.
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Broken python2 packages preventing upgrade to 20.04

    I think the easiest way out of this is to do a fresh install of 20.04 and then restore your home and user data from your backup.
    If you don't have a backup then now (before an upgrade or...

    [SOLVED] Re: Dumbo ssh Client/Server Question

    For the client on the host, you could create either /etc/ssh/ssh_config (affects all users), or you could create /home/$USER/.ssh/config (only affects that one user). If both exist, the global one is...

    The screenshot in post #5 has a scrollbar next to the disk list. Are you sure there isn't a Disk 2 as well?

    [xubuntu] No audio output after reboot

    Today, for some reason my laptop decided I don't have any sound cards - the system tray sound control only shows Dummy Output option.
    asound -l lists cards, but it seems they don't make it into...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Volume is set noauto in fstab but still mounting on boot

    I can confirm that. I get lots of unwanted icons on the desktop unless I hide unused partitions by adding them to fstab as noauto (this is using Xubuntu).

    Xubuntu has settings somewhere for...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Is a User written program re-entrant across multiple users in linux

    As I understand it, there would be one copy of the code in memory, but two processes executing that code. One process running with your ID, and one with your wife's ID. Each process would have its...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Need to revert python from 3.8.5 back to 3.8.2

    I don't know how to fix your current pickle I'm afraid.

    But there are several tools for allowing you to choose different versions of python (once you have sorted your current pickle out). See...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Help with missing drivers - Ryzen laptop

    I had terrible problems with my shiny new Ryzen 4700U until I upgraded the kernel. Now it's perfect. I read on Phoronx that the 4700 Renoir drivers were only in the 5.8.kernel - later than anything...

    Re: Linking

    I think that's two parts.
    1: Move the Documenten folder to the Overige folder. This means your home folder no longer contains a Documenten folder.
    2: Make a symbolic link in your home folder...

    Re: Linking

    It might be best to just mount the partition into your home directory when the computer boots. No other users will be able to mount the partition though. If this solution is OK with you, I think this...

    [ubuntu] Re: File permissions

    When you say "edit" the files, are you just trying to rename them? That may be a different problem to editing the files themselves. The first thing that comes to my mind is that to rename a file, you...
  17. Re: Planning to move from windows 7 to Linux, some basic questions.

    TheFu said this:
    I strongly agree - it is well worth repeating. Except that maybe a month is outside your patience limit. As a minimum, try the live installer for an hour or so for the most popular...
  18. Re: Where can I learn most used Ubuntu Commands?

    I have to agree with ActionParsnip. Trying to learn all possible commands, or even just trying to learn the most commonly used ones will be too much. There are a very few that you will need over and...

    [ubuntu] Re: Very basic Linux permisison issue

    The top directory is /, not //. I guess you've tried the cd command. This changes your working directory. So next time you use ls, it lists the contents of / rather than /home/username. Because...

    I moved from CherryTree to Zim now that CherryTree has been discontinued. They are quite similar, but I don't think you can convert between them very easily. I just opened both and did a manual...

    [ubuntu] Re: Very basic Linux permisison issue

    If you couldn't copy the file to another directory, then either you didn't have read permission for the file, or you didn't have write permission for the directory. Very likely, you weren't trying to...

    Re: LAN/WLAN vs. Internet lags

    Is the connection laggy once it has been made? I'm thinking particularly about telnet or ssh here because it's basically a packet for every keystroke. If the lag is is during normal typing then you...
