  1. Re: Restoring applications onto a new install of Ubuntu

    I have some simple rules about dpkg use.
    Use it to gather information only, not to modify things. For modification, there are better answers.
  2. Re: Restoring applications onto a new install of Ubuntu

    There is also apt-mark, but that depends on your use to set manually installed packages as manually installed and others as auto-installed. In my backup scripts where package lists are captured, I...

    Re: Help enabling 2nd monitor in xorg config

    Sorry, no. I responded **only** about the location of config files.

    I know nothing about g-sync and my nvidia dual monitor system if fairly complex due to some unusual connection requirements here.

    [ubuntu] Re: Unabel to Mount Network Drive

    If you don't have Windows, then use NFS.

    If you want samba, the entire smb.conf file is needed. The different settings interact. You can't pick and choose when it comes to troubleshooting. Plus,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Old ubuntu laptop as print server

    Server guide how to: https://ubuntu.com/server/docs/service-cups
    There is almost always some step that I forget. Common things like setting up printers are covered in the desktop and server guides.
  6. Re: Remmima under WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux)

    I won't allow google-chrome on my systems. I care about privacy.
    If you want to control Linux/Unix systems, use ssh.

    [server] Re: Windows cant access \\serverip

    All connection problems come down to 4 things:

    IP connectivity - the systems can ping each other by name and by IP address
    Firewalls aren't blocking - there should be logs for any blocked...

    [ubuntu] Re: Old ubuntu laptop as print server

    Networking is networking. Wired or wifi should work fine, provided the laptop has a static IP, runs CUPs, and the laptop can print to the printers. I have a desktop doing the same thing. I just...

    [ubuntu] Re: Unabel to Mount Network Drive

    That isn't a valid smb.conf file. Run testparm and post the output, please.
    Look through the log files. These are probably in /var/log/ and /var/log/samba/

    If "All Windows machines have no issue...
  11. [lubuntu] Re: Internal drive partitions listed as removable

    Anyone with a Raspberry-Pi running Lubuntu could check this. Here's what it looks like on a r-pi v2 with a microSD and NFS mount with rasbian:

  12. [lubuntu] Re: Internal drive partitions listed as removable

    I think it is probably a bug in whatever program is being used by Lubuntu to display this stuff. Is that Thunar?
    I say this assuming the fstab file shown is the correct file with the correct...
  13. [xubuntu] Re: Add a search function to applications menu?

    I donít think that is possible with most DEs. At least it isn't built-in.
    A good WM will support custom addons, which can do anything you can program through a script.

    However, you can open a...
  14. [ubuntu_mate] Re: How to do this safely :: Delete first OS partition to expand second OS

    Or use any Ubuntu Desktop Installation ISO in the "Try Ubuntu" mode, which includes a current gparted version.

    BTW, I would have responded 2 days ago, but without code tags, it is too easy for me...
  15. Re: Remmima under WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux)

    Unix systems require a compatible display server to work. That usually means X/Windows. WSL doesn't provide that. Commercial options are usually about $150 for Windows. Linux desktop distros...

    Re: How to understand 20.04 networking?

    if you want control disable avahi, resolvconf, systemd.resolved, purge network manager and configure all the settings in /etc/netplan/ and resolv.conf manually.

    Some things will stop working, but...
  17. Re: Closing a folder right after opening a file

    Why not just open the file without opening the directory?
    I must be missing something in your workflow.

    You can open most files from the program that can read that file by passing the filename...
  18. [lubuntu] Re: Internal drive partitions listed as removable

    +1 on swap --> none for the mount point and
    +1 for the last '2' being a '0' for both swap AND the EFI partition. The meaning of those numbers is spelled out in the fstab manpage, BTW.

    I don't...
  19. [kubuntu] Re: fstab no longer mounting nfs shares at boot

    I played with x-systemd.automount and it seemed to work, but it never umounted the mount, which bothered me. When I take a laptop off the home network, I'd like not to worry whether it had NFS...

    Turtle vs hare question. Pick whichever you prefer.
  21. [lubuntu] Re: Internal drive partitions listed as removable

    There is a setting in the fstab for each mount that can make them not show up in any GVFS-type GUI program. I don't know if Qt supports that or not. It would start with x- ..... in the fstab. Need...

    Re: Using 10.04 now?

    There must be at least 20 remote root attacks against 10.04 today. These are well-known and scanned constantly on the internet.

  23. Re: recommended install image for Pinebook Pro?

    That's specialized HW. Best to stick with distros you find on their support website.
    Other Pine64 OSes weren't generic either. Only expect distros created for the platform to make use of the...
