  2. [xubuntu] Re: How to see network packages in internet traffic on xubuntu 20.04?

    Do you mean "packages" or "packets"?
    These are very different things.

    For packets, wireshark is normally used. https://www.wireshark.org/docs/

  10. [xubuntu] Re: Thunderbird no longer creates a new "To" entry after I enter the first "To"

    Yes. Multiple ways, but mostly it provides access to a file system that behaves like a local mounted file system, except in a few ways, which can be controlled by the exports file. Also, by default,...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: umask, file copy, file creation, directory creation - I'm confused, please help

    It only applies to file systems that support the POSIX standards - i.e. not NTFS, not exFAT, not FAT32. I don't know what happens with HPFS+.
