  1. [lubuntu] Re: is there a way to preserve the window size of PCManFM?

    All proper X/Windows client programs should support the -geometry command line switch. Something like this:

    -geometry 80x25+760+355
    or

    --geometry 80x25+760+355
    to control both the size and...
  2. [kubuntu] Re: I need some help with setting up UFW/GUFW ...

    I wouldn't trust it. I've worked at a similar-sized ISP specifically with patching routers. Don't trust those devices. Their goal is to minimize customer complaints and gather marketing data, not...
  3. [kubuntu] Re: I need some help with setting up UFW/GUFW ...

    If you aren't running any services/network daemons, then there is little need for a firewall if you are behind a normal, maintained, patched, router. If you take a computing device beyond that...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: How to interpret disks utility “SMART data & self-tests” results?

    There is no standard. I've found that only the smartctl tool provides raw values for SMART data. None of the GUIs seem to.
    For example:

    ID# ATTRIBUTE_NAME FLAG VALUE WORST THRESH...

    Re: Ubuntu 16.04 crashing in unusual way

    Onboard GPUs are usually in the GPU, not on the motherboard. I've never heard of a failure.

    Check all the system logs in /var/log/ for issues.
    Also, it sounds like a low-memory situation. How...
  6. [kubuntu] Re: I need some help with setting up UFW/GUFW ...

    Simple.
    Close them all, except the ones you specifically run network services on that you want available to other systems.

    For example, if you run a web server that only listens on port 443/tcp...
  7. Re: Backup script no longer can send files to my Ubuntu server

    Happy you have a working solution.

    rsync makes 1 copy. Using almost the same format, you can have X versioned backups using rdiff-backup.


    rsync -r -a -v -e ssh --delete...

    Re: renaming a user and ~/.config files

    I'd guess the best you can do is make a new userid, then copy the HOME directory over from the other one and hope for the best. Unix programmers would know to base all their preferences off $HOME...
  9. Re: Backup script no longer can send files to my Ubuntu server

    Dude. backup@remoteipaddress is an example userid and IP. You are supposed to replace those with the correct values.
    The key parts are 1-time setups. Only the scp/rsync needs to be in the...
  10. Re: Can't create more than 1 new partition on SSD with Win10, free space marked"unusa

    Lots of good advice above. Which is best is really a judgement call. I would go with The Cog's method. To do it, boot into Windows and do all the partition work inside there. Backup any Linux data...
  11. Re: How to raise size of working partition under Kubuntu 18

    If it is just docker, blow it all away (delete the files and uninstall the packages) and setup a symbolic link to the new storage so that it "appears" to be under the location in /var/lib/docker (or...

    Re: Anti Cloud

    First - wall of text == BAD. I almost didn't bother reading.

    Linux isn't at any risk.
    Linux has better performance than Windows, by far. No comparison.
    You can run all your old "cloudy"...
  13. Re: Can't create more than 1 new partition on SSD with Win10, free space marked"unusa

    MBR partitions have a limit of 4 primary partitions. This rule has been around since 1980.
    A work-around was created in the 1980s, logical partitions. But logical partitions only fit inside an...

    Dual booting is dangerous to every OS on the system. Before doing this, please have excellent backups. There's a 50/50 chance you'll need them. As you learn more and gain more...
