    [SOLVED] Re: Network Manager and VPN

    Glad you figured this out.
    ifupdown and /etc/network/interfaces has been deprecated on Ubuntu for a few years. Ubuntu moved to Netplan. BTW, Debian is **not** an official flavor of ubuntu. Would...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Any routers that accept USB HDs formatted in ext4?

    Let's think about this for a moment.
    Connecting storage to a WAN router. Does that seem like a good idea?

    My common sense "smells bad" test says no. Certain things don't make sense.

  4. [ubuntu] Re: Get Window Title with Bash script under Wayland

    21.10 isn't released - not until late October. Post about it all belong in the "Ubuntu Development Release" sub-forum.

    Re: Directing traffic between two NIC's

    If you want to redirect traffic, then routing must be enabled. To route, different subnets are mandatory. Having 2 NICs on the same subnet won't allow routing to easily be setup. They need to be...
  6. [gnome] Re: authenication password not accepted the first time.

    I suspect the issue is that the keyboard takes a little longer to wake than the monitor does on your system. Try typing 2 characters, then backspacing 2 times before entering the login password.

    [ubuntu] Re: Upgrading CPU

    I'd look for errors and warnings, but you feel free to do what you think is best.

    It is a good idea to scan through an entire log file at least once ... see what's inside. Don't let your eye glaze...
  8. Re: Monitors do not power down when screen blanks

    GUI stuff isn't the OS on any Linux system. Any GUI is tacked on after. That means, trying different GUIs until you find one that behaves in the way expected isn't a big deal. The GUI is just...
  9. Re: what do I need to do to run windows software and steam/EA games on ubuntu desktop

    WSL lacks all sorts of capabilities that a VM provides. Any Core2 Duo or faster CPU with 6+ GB of RAM can easily run Linux inside a full VM.
    Setup your network firewall to block most MS stuff and...
  10. [server] Re: ubuntu 16.04.6 - 300GB upgrade for sda - doesnt work

    Post #3 from oldfred above explains the issue. It isn't LVM. It is the current legacy MBR partitions causing the limitation.

    The PV must entirely be contained within sda5.
    sda5 must entirely...

    Multiple pickles in this setup.
    16.04 is the first issue. That must be solved.
    As part of that solution, do a fresh install of 20.04 and this time, choose GPT partitioning and create 3 partitions...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: service systemd-resolved restart results in Temporary failure in name resolution

    a) /etc/resolv.conf is usually a symbolic link to somewhere else. Quickly break that link and put the /etc/resolv.conf you want there.

    b) the process that would try to update the /etc/resolv.conf...

    YES! Leave it running overnight.

    Did you look at the log files yet?!!!!!!!!!!!!! Guessing isn't helping. The answer is 99% in those logs.
  14. Re: what do I need to do to run windows software and steam/EA games on ubuntu desktop

    I'm a strong believer in using virtual machines. There is very little risk to the other OSes, unlike dual booting. The storage is all "virtual" for any guest machines, so a 40G single file on...

    Re: Ubuntu 21.04 Remote Desktop Sharing

    21.04 support ends in December. Do you really want to bother with a non-LTS release?
    Everyone on 21.04 must move to 21.10 between late-Oct and January. There's no choice - unless being unsupported...
  16. Re: losetup creating unwanted encrypted loop device

    You'll need to review the cryptsetup manual page. I think it is too complex to just unleash commands without reading the other parts in that manpage. Sorry.
  17. Re: what do I need to do to run windows software and steam/EA games on ubuntu desktop

    Linux is not Windows. Expecting to keep working the same way you did on Windows will just lead to frustration. With Unix-like system, you'll want to start thinking a different way and some hardware...

    Please edit the first post and change "quote" tags into "code" tags, so output lines up correctly. Difficult to read as it is.

    Also, please update the post to clarify which commands are run on...

    [ubuntu] Re: Question - file manager copy "timing"

    Use rsync.
    Lots of files, huge or tiny, has lots of overhead. The copy wants to keep the owner, group, permissions, other ACLs, and xattrs, whenever possible. This all takes time.

    This could be confusing to someone who had LVM added at install and didn't specifically want it.
