    [lubuntu] Re: Failed to obtain authentication.

    So, it appears you replaced the default group for the alan username which would have been alan (gid:1000) and renamed it sambashare. That would break all the group settings for every file on the...
  2. Re: How do I block access to certain website through my ubuntu server 18.04?

    I'd rather you used a real router, perhaps from Ubiquiti or Mikrotik (not some consumer brand) and used this Linux server as a VM/LXD host for other services like pi-hole, squid, file storage, and...

    Re: Help me escape from OS X and iTunes

    Can't believe I didn't mention this - use NFS. Unix systems share storage in a native way using NFS. This usually isn't point-n-click setup and the uid/gui numbers need to match on all clients. For...

    I didn't answer previously because there were plenty of how-to guide found via google for merging audio files using audacity. Figured the OP would find those and follow one easily. Some things are...

    [ubuntu] Re: ssh-keygen passphrase parsing problems

    '$' is being interpreted by the shell as $V which is probably an empty environment variable. If you want to use any character that gets interpreted by the shell you use there are multiple choices.

    I didn't have the issue you've hit. Is the pi-hole software installed into an LXD container or virtual machine?
  9. Re: Brand new laptop, external display not detected, need help please!

    I think the kernels are separate from the userspace programs. People grab the latest alpha kernels from kernel.org and run those on pretty much any Linux they want. I haven't needed to do that in...

    Re: Help me escape from OS X and iTunes

    I'd use sftp, scp, rsync. Every popular file manager program on Linux supports using sftp:// in the URL to access local and remote stuff, assuming an ssh server is running on the other side. It...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: SSH login with key autenthificaton, problem when disabling password auth

    Good catch!
    From my own sshd_config:

    Match Address 172.22.22.0/24,172.21.22.0/24,172.22.21.0/24
    PasswordAuthentication yes

    This allows passwords from...

    [ubuntu] Re: Unclear high CPU usage

    I don't have anything called "process manager" on any systems here, sorry. I didn't remove it, so it isn't a default for all flavors of Ubuntu.

    / isn't a process. It is a control group inherited...

    [ubuntu] Re: Unclear high CPU usage

    No idea what cgtop does. Ah - we have manpages so we can look up what a command does.

    That is for process containment. If you have less than 3 years of Unix experience, I'm almost positive that...

  16. [lubuntu] Re: New to Lubuntu, question about docx and increasing size of things

    Microsoft Word has supported ODF for some time, BTW. Best to avoid proprietary data file formats. Stick with open standards, so any program of a similar type can use the data.

    Perhaps there are technical reasons WHY you like XFS?

    Re: Password quits working

    Try:

    sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade
    The update needs to happen within about 6 hrs of any attempted "upgrade" so dependent packages aren't out-of-sync.

    Just a guess.
  25. [ubuntu] Re: Terminal problem with a ncurses program in Ubuntu 20.04 OK in Ubuntu 18.04

    Sometimes we have to wait until the developers move to a new release before we can. Forcing seldom works. I have some software that won't support 20.04 until next year sometime, so I'm waiting and...
