  1. Re: 4G-stick Huawei E3372: internet connection via command line?

    Normal networking can be controlled using wicd-cli or nm-cli if you don't want to setup a netplan YAML file.

    I don't know anything about specific devices, but if they are seen and the drivers are...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: No USB Drive, need to install Ubuntu (HELP)

    Simply a lack of physical USB device availability.

    I think the OPs issue is that no free USB storage is available and the idea of moving files off a stick temporarily, using the stick with rufus,...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: No USB Drive, need to install Ubuntu (HELP)

    Use a virtual machine. Install virtualbox into the current OS, then create a VM and use the ISO file from the links in the page header here to download xubuntu/lubuntu/ubuntu-mate. Avoid the Gnome3...

    Re: Wiping write protected USB

    yancek sees something that I had already moved passed. ISO files are ISO9660 standard read-only images of a CDROM/DVD. They are readonly and always will be. That's what an ISO is. The file system...

    [ubuntu_mate] Re: Sudden outage

    Is the power outlet one of those with circuit protection like bathrooms all have? Maybe the protection circuit tripped and needs to be reset by pressing the red button? Just thinking out-loud.

    Re: Wiping write protected USB

    +1 for mkusb.

    I've used it a few times for multi-boot with a little storage outside the ISO and "persistent" areas for data storage. I think it was multi-boot, but don't quote me on that. The...
  7. Re: Can Ubuntu be installed on a MediaTek MT8183 Chromebook

    My knowledge could be out of date. The last time I had chromeOS on any of my devices was early 2016.

    Chromebooks can work off-line.

    Also, chromebooks have a "guest" login, so you don't need to...

    Re: Gnome tweaks Shell has exclamation point

    My first thought was that gnome tweaks isn't part of the core repositories, so with the upgrade, the old version would be removed, but the .desktop file would be left. That would leave a menu item,...
  9. Re: Can Ubuntu be installed on a MediaTek MT8183 Chromebook

    This isn't strictly correct. Chromebooks have protections to block running other OSes, but those protections can sometimes be removed and a different boot firmware can be loaded to allow booting any...

    Re: Want to learn Ubuntu

    Just-in-time learning is very useful, until the background necessary to understand the instructions is lacking to miss important details in those instructions and toast the system.

  13. [ubuntu] Re: Can't access EXT4 - Content unkown - Partition not found?

    He's dead, Jim. Sorry.
    If you had backups of the drive or the partition table, there might be something more to try. Without any partition table, I think there is little to be done. Learn from...

    Attempting to use plain FTP and have VMs running from the same directory is asking for problems. Plain FTP should have died in 2002. Use sftp instead. Then normal Unix groups can be used and you...

    I still think that the best answer was what I suggested in post #6 - prevent **anything** from being written to begin with....
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Can't access EXT4 - Content unkown - Partition not found?

    GPT has a primary and backup copy of the partition table at opposite ends of the HDD. It is very unlikely for both to be missing, since they are physically "far" apart on the disk. That means the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Old hard drive not reconized

    If BIOS doesn't see the disk, it is a bad disk. No OS can do anything about that.

    If this was business critical data, use your backups. Lacking backups, open your wallet and spend the $3K for a...

    [ubuntu] Re: Old hard drive not reconized

    Does the BIOS still see the HDD? Some ideas:

    dead HDD
    bad cable(s) (power/data)
    loose cable(s)


    Did the cables get moved? Depending on how the OS sees the HDD connection, this could...
  22. [ubuntu] Re: Can't access EXT4 - Content unkown - Partition not found?

    Always, always, lay down a partition table. It appears you may not have done that based on pointing at sdb, instead of one of the partition like sdb3 or sdb1 or sdb9. Never format an entire...
