  1. Re: cant paste 'sy' script into /home/graham/.gimp-2.8/plug-ins directory

    Do you want to put the zip file into the plugins directory, or do you want to put the two .sy files in there?

    I don't think you can copy the contents of a zip file without extracting it first. In...
  2. Re: tightvnc connection refused when using IP address & accepted with localhost

    That looks like xtightvnc is listening on all local addresses for ports 5901 and 6001. There should be no difference between connecting on localhost and connecting on other local addresses....
  3. Re: If my system freezes how do I drop out of gui to raw cli?

    If only the GUI is frozen, yes. But in that case, Ctrl-Alt-Fn should work.
    If the whole system is frozen then it won't be answering ssh calls either.
  4. Re: If my system freezes how do I drop out of gui to raw cli?

    On Xubuntu 19.10, it's still Ctrl+Alt+F1 through Ctrl-Alt-F6. But of course if the whole system is frozen (not just the GUI frozen) then that won't help.
  5. Re: tightvnc connection refused when using IP address & accepted with localhost

    Is it configured to only listen on localhost? Many services come that way so you can test and configure their security locally before reconfiguring them to accept external connections.
    This command...
  6. Re: how do I ensure that I install a NON-Snap version of an application (Thunderbird)

    Not necessarily. In Xubuntu 19.10, chromium-browser is only available as a snap.
    I gather that's true for all variants, and it's the only way Chromium will be available on *buntu in the future.

    Re: migrating ssh keys intra-machine

    I think maybe the host id is in /etc/ssh. You could try copying these across, but make sure you keep the originals to restore if it doesn't work.
  8. Re: Could someone PLEASE fix this BUG in the Ubuntu/LUKS boot process?

    Red Hat has the same issue, fwiw.

    Re: How do I get back from Ctrl-Alt-F1 ?

    Alt-F7 normally gets you back to the the GUI (assuming it's working and able to re-draw).

    No problem with double-click and type to replace words here (i.e. in this reply). But that's with Firefox...

    Re: Interface with multiple IP's

    If x and y are in two different network ranges then just adding a route to the external address via a gateway that is a network neighbour to x should be enough (I think).

    Or this command should...

    [xubuntu] Re: what input for UTF-8/Unicode in bash?

    I know it's not a lot of help, but I use Xubuntu, and the Ctrl-Shift-U input has worked for me for years (currently on 19.10). So I think there may be something unusual in your setup. I've not been...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: I cannot Copy files from downloads to my other volume

    As I understand it, the most common reason for NTFS being read-only in Linux is that it is marked unclean. See this post for an idea what to do in Linux, or better, check the disk with Windows....
  13. [ubuntu] Re: I cannot Copy files from downloads to my other volume

    Looking at your last post, you are already in the Downloads directory (the prompt says so, and you did ls, not ls Downloads).
    So you don't need to say Downloads again - the file is not in...
  14. Re: How to make a file untouchable by a specific user?

    Being able to delete a file depends on being able to write to the containing directory. In general anyone with write access to a directory can create/delete any file in the directory, even if they...

    Re: auto mounting a secondary HDD

    Where do you mount the drive to when you do it manually? If not sure, lsblk while it's mounted will tell you. Maybe you should mount it there with crontab.

    It looks like you have the right UUID.

    There's a star trek series where the opening credits show the dust round an asteroid (or something) swirling in the downwash from a spaceship as it passes by. That bugs me every time I see it....

    No. I get a white box with a click box marked "I am not a robot" in it for each of them. Then when I click that, I get to identify traffic lights. Happens most days. I'm slowly getting to dislike...

    [SOLVED] Re: 19.10 unorthodox format?

    So format a drive with disks then run lsblk -f, then format the same drive with gparted and run lsblk -f again. Post the two lsblk outputs and we can look to see if we can see a difference.

    [SOLVED] Re: 19.10 unorthodox format?

    You can use lsblk -f to see how connected drives are formatted. This will show whether you have formatted them with or without a partition table.
  21. Re: sda and sdb - I want to switch the hd designations - how?

    It's /dev/disk not /dev/disks. I just looked because I'm learning too. This gives an interesting output:

    It might be possible to fix device names with udev persistent...

    Can you be clearer about what you are formatting? It is normal to place a partiton table at the start of the drive, that allows you to logically divide the disk into several partitions and format...

    I would search the whole of /etc looking for that IP address to find out which config file it's in. try:

    You will likely get several hits, but it should be...
