  1. [lubuntu] Add New User - settings in /etc/adduser.conf don't work?

    As a follow-up to my thread about banning "other" from the $HOME directories:
    https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2460569
    and the announcement from discourse.ubuntu.com in the same thread:...
  2. Re: Ban "other" from $HOME and subdirs - Good or Bad Idea?

    You've lost me bit here, but the discussion is interesting.

    For /home everything is default. For $HOME only x is set for "other". No read permission. For all subdirs to $HOME "other" has no rights...
  3. Re: Ban "other" from $HOME and subdirs - Good or Bad Idea?

    Good call!
    I've tested it. Every $HOME should have the "x" attribute set for "other". Anything below that should have rwx "other" attributes cleared, with one exception: .face.icon must have read...

    Interesting reading, Thank You @deadflowr for the link.
  5. Re: Ban "other" from $HOME and subdirs - Good or Bad Idea?

    OK, just ran into a minor issue. The "icon.png" for the user login needs to be set as "read" for "other" in $HOME. No big deal...

    Also, do not remove "other" from $HOME, but only the subdirs and...

    Really? I feel good now :)

    Thanks, CatKiller.
  7. Ban "other" from $HOME and subdirs - Good or Bad Idea?

    I have changed the ownerships of $HOME and subdirectories to only have default "owner" and "group" permissions using the following command:


    ~$ chmod o-rwx -R ./* ./.[!.]*


    Can this...

    Yep, the .net site is a cybersquatter. Avoid referencing it, it just brings it more traffic.

    [all variants] Re: BIOS Update for HP Compaq 6910p

    Final Update:
    Project "update BIOS" is dead.
    I made a live-boot DVD with FreeDOS, which boots beautifully (into an R: drive, which is somewhat weird).

    I copied the sp39750.exe file onto a USB...

    Thanks, CelticWarrior, but I tried that.
    The HP driver file (sp39750.exe) simply extracts a handful of files, but does not create a bootable image. None of the options in the HP link appear.

    Thank You for your suggestions.
    I think I'll let this issue rest for a while, it's not urgent, the laptops run.
    FreeDOS is probably the way to go, but the documentation on how to make a bootable...

    Nasty comment and inappropriate. I've tried all combinations of Fx keys, Esc etc. to get to a BIOS menu that will allow an update. No cigar.

    Thank You, but that doesn't work either. Again: these laptops are pure BIOS, no UEFI available. The link to support.hp.com presumes UEFI.

    Depends on your locale. If it's en-US it's indeed odd.
    For other locales it is normal.

    Nothing to do with Lubuntu.

    You can place fonts anywhere you like.

    It's just that I like the association between /usr/share and ~/.local/share for global vs. user. Makes it easier to find...
