    Re: Does Ubuntu leak location or time-zone?

    I'm not worried about software updates giving away my location. That's because I stay within the Canonical Repos for all the software that I can with very, very, few exceptions. Many of those...

    Best? That depends. Use whatever package manager you normally use.

    sudo apt remove --purge thunderbird*
    or to reinstall it

    In many parts of Linux, the only real way to truly understand what is happening is to read the source code. Perhaps spend a few hours in a debugger watching it work.

    It should be noted that this does not change the password on the mail/imap/pop3 server. Those need to be changed on the server-side.

    [SOLVED] Re: How can I find broken links in my website?

    wget won't uncover javascript-generated links. For that, you'll need a "javascript driver" to click everywhere there's a hot-point on the webpage and I'd probably use a proxy server with the browser...

    Try

    create mask = 0755

    While chmod works with only 3 or 4 of the 4 octal values, I think Samba requires all 4. Doesn't my example show 4 octal values? It should if it doesn't.
