  1. [ubuntu] Re: sometimes user with encrypted home isn't logged out fully

    It seems like umount.ecryptfs_private might be the way to go, but its man page says:

    If, and only if:
    - the private mount passphrase is in their kernel keyring, and
    - the current user owns both...
  2. [ubuntu] sometimes user with encrypted home isn't logged out fully

    There are a couple of users on this machine. Sometimes if a user (who has an encrypted home) logs out, even though the X session is no longer available, root (sudo) can still access the encrypted...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: trying to set time manually but it keeps changing by 2 hours

    Whew just got it to work without having to set the hardware clock to local time.
    date --set='date and time in UTC' --utc
    hwclock --systohc --utc Now when I reboot the clock is correct. Both of...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: trying to set time manually but it keeps changing by 2 hours

    Thanks Jimysbil. That's a solution. Just that I'm still surprised that it was working perfectly for months, then only broke after I set it to a different city. Would be nice not to have to set ubuntu...
  5. [SOLVED] trying to set time manually but it keeps changing by 2 hours

    I had set the time manually when I installed xenial back in April and it was working just fine. Then I went out of town for a while and temporarily set the time manually to the new time zone. While...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: had port 22 open and have openssh-server installed, is this risky???

    Thanks again. Unfortunately I don't know if the ISP (which would in my case be the router I would guess) is blocking attempts from outside to port 22. I sort of think they are, just from reading the...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: had port 22 open and have openssh-server installed, is this risky???

    Hmm @deadflowr I guess you deleted the newer thread. I can understand why but tbh I'd prefer that one to this because this gives the wrong impression that I'm asking about containers when I don't...
  8. [ubuntu] had openssh-server running and port 22 listening too

    I asked this in general help, but probably this is a better place to ask. And there I was too long winded.

    Somehow openssh-server got installed more than a month ago, openssh-client too. Maybe...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: had port 22 open and have openssh-server installed, is this risky???

    Thanks again @TheFu, but I've removed all the lxd stuff. Not interested in containers. I'm not asking about them at all.

    What I'm trying to understand is whether or not the *default* settings for...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: had port 22 open and have openssh-server installed, is this risky???

    Thanks @TheFu. I'll go read your link now.

    But I want to point out that I explicitly enabled password authentication ONLY inside the containers I was trying out, never on the laptop----but I...
  11. [ubuntu] had port 22 open and have openssh-server installed, is this risky???

    Somehow openssh-server and openssh-client were installed more than a month ago. Perhaps it was installed either by lxd or by x2go client, when I was trying containers. I have since deleted all the...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: xenial 64 bit often almost boots but goes to a black screen

    Thanks @mrgs. I was thinking the same. Trusty was working just fine, but I installed it after it had been out for a few months. These various problems with xenial are hopefully being solved. I'll...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: sometimes audio mutes and only reboot fixes it

    Thanks @runrickus for those tips. As you say it beats restarting.
  14. [ubuntu] sometimes audio mutes and only reboot fixes it

    Occasionally the audio just mutes, volume all the way down. There's no way (that I know of) to get it out of that state except for a reboot, which is not so nice. It seems to happen somewhat...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: xenial 64 bit often almost boots but goes to a black screen

    No it's not quite solved. Still occasionally boots to a blank/black screen. Less often than before definitely. But not entirely solved yet. :-(
  16. [ubuntu] Re: xenial 64 bit often almost boots but goes to a black screen

    Too early to tell if it's really solved. I want to try several boots before doing that.
  17. [ubuntu] Re: xenial 64 bit often almost boots but goes to a black screen

    I tried the nvidia driver and enabled the intel microcode driver too (don't know what that does). It's definitely better. Thanks @sudodus for the suggestion!

    Audacity still has issues starting up...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: xenial 64 bit often almost boots but goes to a black screen

    Thanks for your comments. I do need the low-latency kernel I would say because I do work in sound/music/audio. As for the nvidia driver: I haven't tried that with xenial. I was using the nvidia...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: xenial 64 bit often almost boots but goes to a black screen

    Many many thanks.

    I should add that there are some other symptoms that may be related. There seem to be some issues with the OS starting applications, for example sometimes when I boot the...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: xenial 64 bit often almost boots but goes to a black screen

    Hello @mrgs are you still checking this thread?? Sorry for the long delay! If you are still there and still wouldn't mind helping then I can post that. I thought to ask first though, to see if you...
  21. [ubuntu] xenial 64 bit often almost boots but goes to a black screen

    Often when booting (maybe 20% or 25% of the time) the process goes almost all the way but before showing the login box it seems to get stuck and shows only a black screen. Unfortunately the only...
  22. [SOLVED] Re: installing any package invokes rkhunter!! why?

    @deadflowr: explicitly setting UPDT_ON_OS_CHANGE to 0 seems to have fixed that. Thanks again for the tip that led to that. Seems like an rkhunter bug because it's supposed to use the default but...
  23. [SOLVED] Re: installing any package invokes rkhunter!! why?

    Thank you both for your answers! @habitual: I installed it using synaptic. @deadflowr: thanks; I checked and in rkhunter.conf for my version of rkhunter 1.4.2 there's no variable called APT_AUTOGEN....
  24. [SOLVED] installing any package invokes rkhunter!! why?

    This is insane: for some reason every time I install anything with synaptic or on the command line with apt-get install at the end of that install process rkhunter is run, apparently it's running...
  25. [SOLVED] Re: CTRL-ALT-F7 or 8 now requires password - how can I unlock session

    Figured it out. In case it helps anybody else: under Settings Manager->Session and Startup->Application Autostart tab turn off Screen Locker (the package is called light locker I do believe).
