  1. [gnome] Re: Can't type password into pkexec sudo prompt

    There was a sudo patch last week. Could having the new version installed, but not restarting the sudo subsystem have been the problem?

    My servers haven't been rebooted in about 9 days. I patch on...

    [ubuntu] Re: Read only filesystem fix?

    Because it contained an unnecessary keyword?
    Providing just enough relevant information is a fine line.

    Did the chmod work? If so, please say that and mark the thread "SOLVED" using the...

    [ubuntu] Re: SMTP Relay - virtual domain

    I think the OP is confusing server-to-server SMTP on port 25 with client-to-server SMTP on port 465 or 587.
    server-to-server SMTP doesn't require authentication.
    client-to-server SMTP usually does...

    [ubuntu] Re: Read only filesystem fix?

    Not a System76-specific question.

    Anyways, a read-only file system is the way that the OS tries to protect storage from more corruption.

    a) The fstab entry is missing 2 columns on the far...

    Re: Can Viruses/Malware affect ubuntu?

    If you do high risk activities, then running an A/V scanner would be useful. What are high-risk activities?

  6. [lubuntu] Re: USB Thunderbird between Lubuntu & Win7 - Password Probs

    If you pull storage out from Linux, expect data loss and/or corruption.
    For portable storage, I use autofs to automatically mount and umount USB storage, but we can't just pull it out when we like....
  7. [lubuntu] Re: USB Thunderbird between Lubuntu & Win7 - Password Probs

    Mozilla files are cross-platform. I've moved between Linux, Windows, OSX without issues. I don't do it daily, only when a new machine shows up. Since most addons are javascript, those are...
  8. [lubuntu] Re: USB Thunderbird between Lubuntu & Win7 - Password Probs

    I don't do this.

    I think Unix systems want POSIX file systems - those that support proper file permissions. FAT32 does not.

    You can use a / instead of \ on Windows. It works perfectly and all...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu Desktop Freeze

    Please be specific on "latest version" ... a new release happened a few days ago. If you are a typical end-user and not a developer, you'd be better served by using 18.04, which has 5 yrs of...

    [lubuntu] Re: Run Script on Wireless connection

    18.10 support ended last July. Please move to either 19.04 or 19.10, depending on your tolerance for bugs.

    BTW, 18.10 ---> 2018, October, so the ".10" is important and the zero should NOT be...

    We will help you fix a script, but you need to post specific questions. If I don't see some honest code attempted, I will not help.

    It is common for Windows computers to have 16-64GB of RAM, so Ubuntu wants to have all the "cheese" enabled they can for end-users who like the cheese to enjoy. Every bell and whistle is enabled,...
  21. [ubuntu] Re: Shotwell can't access digital camera after upgrading to Ubuntu 19

    Is the shotwell program a snap package or a normal package? Snaps have many more constraints and what you've described should like a snap package constraint.

    The Atom N270 CPU is the issue with only 270 passmarks. The "270" result is just a coincidence. I had an Asus Eee with that CPU in 2010. It was fine for minimal work loads that didn't need any GPU....
