    Re: Choppy video playback of mobile phone video

    Installing nvidia drivers on LTS should be really easy for supported GPUs. Older GPUs, that don't have support will be harder, or impossible, to install the proprietary drivers. I ended up...

    [server] Re: Trying to get an OCR solution to work

    I worked in Document Management Systems at some huge companies from 1995 - 2007, some were art-centric systems, but most were either conversions from older systems or for archival data.

    Pay Xerox.

    Re: Smartd to check SSD Disk Health

    I think it is a cable or PSU issue. Swap out the connecting cable or at least re-seat the connection.

    Re: HELP, 2nd SAS drive not seen by linux

    I don't know the answer.

    You'll need to use manpages to learn how to accomplish what you seek.
    The tools to gather information are hdparm and smartctl. I think both will need to be installed,...
  6. Re: GUI backup software that allows restoration of specific user specified files

    CLI/Shell is better than a GUI for a few things.
    * automation
    * backups
    * moving files, data, around
    * renaming lots and lots of files
    * system admin work, configurations.

    Since backups...

    [server] Re: Trying to get an OCR solution to work

    Not all PDFs have text inside them. Some are purely bitmap scans. The trick is to get the image run through an OCR that places the text _under_ the image on the page. gscan2pdf can do that. Then...
  8. Re: LAN Internet slow in Ubuntu compared to Windows in dual boot

    First, can you verify performance using iper3?

    So far, we have a claim that it is slow, but nothing says which program(s) are being used.
    Which two points are involved? If one is wifi,...
  9. Re: LAN Internet slow in Ubuntu compared to Windows in dual boot

    a) only wanted 1 of the command outputs. Posting everything dilutes what is important.
    b) using code tags would help make it easier to read. I demonstrated it in my original post.

    This is what...

    We need information about the specific device, current driver, current connection in order to help. If this isn't a wireless issue, then one of the following commands should provide the data:

  11. Re: How to expanded hard drive 1 to newly installed hard drive 2

    While you can use LVM for something like this, spanning file systems across different disks doubles the chances of a single disk failure corrupting all the files on both disks. Not recommended. If...

  13. Re: Better configuration for deploying virtual servers and machines

    It depends.

    The answer depends on your needs, requirements and desires. Proliant gen5 HW has had compatibility issues with Linux previously so I wouldn't assume it to be compatible. Previous...

    Buy the system that meets your needs. Dell tends to be very well supported. Apple makes excellent hardware too, but you'll need to get used to the missing keys on that keyboard and alway have to...

    Re: Adventures in Partitioning (Newby)

    People ask "how should I partition my install" all the time. Please search these forums for lots of different answers.

    Additionally, I wouldn't have 8G for the swap. 4.1G is my only answer for a...
  16. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    Something else you should notes is that Catkiller and I come at the problem from slightly different ways. This is because we have different backgrounds, I'd bet. I'm trained as an ASE, worked in that...
  17. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    rsync has some failures as a backup tool. For example, when using the hardlinking capabilities to provide versioned backups, it cannot track changes to the owner, group, permissions or ACLs.

  18. [ubuntu] Re: Best RDP (or the alike) for MacOS (Catalina+) -> Ubuntu Desktop?

    No, x2go uses the NX protocol. x2go has issues with the default Ubuntu Gnome3 GUI, so most people use a different DE, like XFCE, LXDE, or Mate when using x2go.

    X11 uses X11. I know Unix-savvy...

    By default, snaps only allow access to your HOME.
    You can tell them to allow access to storage under /mnt/ or /media/ , but not everywhere, by using the

  20. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    50% of a backup is the data. The other 50% is the owner, group, permissions, any ACLs. If you don't have 100% in your backup data and know how to restore is all, then
    a) you need better backups

  22. Re: Make executable bash script run with sudo privileges?

    Somewhere under /root/ is what is important. There's nothing special in a HOME directory, so most userids don't have bin/ and sbin/ subdirs. Either will pre-exist, so you'll need to mkdir anyways. ...
