  1. [lubuntu] Re: Media.ts file size vs Media.mp4 file size

    ts and mp4 are just containers. ts is usually mpeg2 "transport stream", which is good for picking up mid-stream.

    The video, audio codecs selected and settings for those are what control the size....
  2. Re: To format media (NTFS) drive immediately or not

    Shrink and shift is dangerous. Wait for the new drive.
    I’ve never used snapraid or mergefs.
    Every OS except Windows let's us mount storage - partition not drives - anywhere we need them. Any...
  3. Re: 20.04: Why no option to create a non-encrypted physical volume during installatio

    The new, 18.04 refreshed installer, (new in the last 2 months) can do anything with LVM we could want. Earlier this week, I setup a new 18.04 Server with LVM. It was the first time I remember being...
  4. Re: How reinstall Ubuntu 18.04 on single boot system and keep personal data

    gparted isn't exactly useful.
    sudo parted -lm would be. It will be text that you can select/paste then wrap in "code tags", so all the columns line up here like they do in the terminal.

    But...

    Re: sftp to server in nautilus?

    Whenever I've used sftp:// in the URI for any Linux file manager, it has always worked. Don't remember doing anything special, ever, but I use caja perhaps 1-2 times a year, so I'm hardly an expert. ...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: How to protect myself from keyloggers and screen capture programs?

    Use 2FA. Nothing else is sufficient for the paranoid. Look for a u2f compatible device for most websites. Unfortunately, most finacial websites don't support u2f, preferring to use older tech like...
  7. Re: 20.04: Why no option to create a non-encrypted physical volume during installatio

    i don't know. 20.04 hasn't been released. Too new for me.

    Canonical has tended towards oversimplification, always, but especially on desktops. i do remember seeing an LVM option in previous...

    Re: Installing new distro need some help.

    You can use sudo apt search "term" to find package names. Or use synaptic and scroll those those with "-desktop"
    There must be 50 different GUIs. Think...

    Please dont post images inline. Use thumbnails and attachments. People using their phones here will not like the image. Some of us pay by the byte for our data.

    Re: Streaming from storage drive

    What protocols do your "smart/dumb TVs" support? That will be key. Get out the manual. Most will support DLNA.

    Have you setup a media server to stream the files? Perhaps miniDLNA or Kodi or...

    Re: Installing new distro need some help.

    Not all applications are cross-distro. Some distros have different names for different packages and the package files aren't setup to be installed on Ubuntu-based systems. However, if you have an...

    [ubuntu] Re: Failed to connect

    One problem at a time, per thread, please.

    Please post the command and output of:

    sudo lshw -C network

    That command will show both wifi and wired information so we can decide which is easier...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Migrate 19.10 non-encrypted LVM installation to new disk

    You'll need to export the LVM metadata and import the LVM metadata.
    Or you could use pvmove.
    Or you could setup an LVM mirror between the disks, give it time to sync, then break the LVM mirror...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Problem getting chown to work for new ext4 partition

    Of course we assume things. That's required when no data is provided.

    There is a technique called automount. The storage is only mounted when specifically requested. When that storage isn't...

    Re: Success with desktop LXD containers! Woot!

    VPN clients are pretty easy.
    It is the VPN server that needs some funky networking, kernel modules, and internal routing that would be the challenges with any container deployment.

    impavidus is correct. autoremove. It was late when I posted. Sorry.

  19. [SOLVED] Re: questions on adding partition for 20.04 root

    There's a recent, long, discussion about swap in these forums with plenty of differing advice. I think any amount over 4.1G is likely more than needed regardless of RAM, but there are always...

  21. Re: Logging in with another environment for Ubuntu

    You should always have backups. Weekly, if not daily. Backups solve 1001 issues that cannot be solved in any other way ...er ... except data loss. If data loss is an option, don't do backups.

  22. Re: How reinstall Ubuntu 18.04 on single boot system and keep personal data

    Sure. Stuff in a HOME directory is just data. As long as it gets put back with the correct owner, group, and permissions, there shouldn't be any issues. It helps that it where it gets put appears...
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Migrate 19.10 non-encrypted LVM installation to new disk

    A fresh install is 15 minutes. The storage layout is unimportant. i wouldn't waste much time on it.

    Re: sftp to server in nautilus?

    That is just a guess. i don't use nautilus.

    Obviously, the remote systems must have the openssh-server...
