    [server] Re: Connect to WiFi from command line

    I use an older wifi/network TUI program (the name escapes me now), but there is nmcli too. https://www.tecmint.com/nmcli-connect-wi-fi-from-linux-terminal/

    To share files with a friend, I prefer...
  2. Re: Help with ssh error "Unable to connect to X server" xrdp not working

    Just curious, is your Windows system running an X/Server? You'd need to go out of your way to install and configure that.
    For many people, x2go is a better solution to connect from Windows into a...

    Re: Cloning xubuntu ...

    Yes.

    sudo cp {source-device} {target-device}

    Just be correct in picking the source and target devices. Get those backwards and it will be a very bad day/week/month/year.

    If you want to clone...

    Re: Do I have failing hardware?

    Give it a week, but I bet you can get 2800 Mhz - which would feel faster. I think you'd notice that difference.
  5. Re: /usr/local/lib is not in the path anymore

    Is the NAS location mounted? or using autofs?

    I've never gotten AppImages to work based on symlinks. The way the AppImage unpacks includes some overly simplified efforts to figure out the...

    Re: Do I have failing hardware?

    Matched sets matter greatly with DDR4. I moved from 16G to 32G after 2 yrs. Suppose I could return under the "lifetime warranty" and ask for a 4-stick matched timing set?



    1800 Mhz is the...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: Accidently lost /home during resizing process

    sudo pvs
    sudo vgs
    sudo lvs
    lsblk -e 7 -o name,size,type,fstype,mountpoint
    They make nice text tables/graphs of the layout....

    [lubuntu] Re: Thunderbird Problems

    Seems you need to contact the ISP and have them renew their cert if they haven't already handled it. It isn't an issue on your system or one that you can do anything about. If some other mail...

    Re: India Income Tax Utility for AY 2021-22.

    You've made statements. Is there a question that someone might be able to help?
    Can't you just print out the paper and mail it in? I know ZERO about India's tax laws.

    Re: ubuntu firewall ?

    For typical home users, it is sufficient.
    There are exceptions for systems running network services. If you didn't specifically setup up a service, don't worry.

    I put Ubuntu on an AMD E-350 APU inside an ITX case years ago. The APU+MB+Case+PSU were $99 total. Just added RAM and a HDD. The Radeon iGPU drivers at the time couldn't handle hidef video, so when...

    Re: How to modify the router MAC address?

    That is 100% a router question and depends on the router firmware. Nobody here can answer, assuming it is possible. That change can only happen inside the router.

    The manpage for that command says:

    Re: External USB drive becoming read only.

    Thanks kurt18947, m-disc is it. The m-disc drives do work with normal DVDs and blurays too, I understand, so they aren't 1-trick tools.
  18. [ubuntu] Re: how do you mount or to open up ddrescue .img

    Thanks for the clarity. I'll ignore sda.

    If you backed up the whole drive, not just the partitions that you want, you'll need to use some math or kpartx to figure out where the partition(s) are...

    Re: External USB drive becoming read only.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^ This. All storage is going to fail. We don't get to pick when. Sometimes it fails on day 2 and sometimes it fails after 15 yrs. Often, drives provide hints that something is wrong, but...
  21. [ubuntu] Re: how do you mount or to open up ddrescue .img

    /dev/sdb is the whole drive, not the partition. You cannot mount the whole drive. You'll need to figure out the offsets for each partition that has a file system and mount those.

    faillog output above doesn't show any attempts that failed.

    Actually, using LUKS with 2FA **does** stop access to the computer data, unless the LUKS encryption is unlocked when the attacker arrives. Since while disk encryption unlocks before booting/login,...
