    Re: Help with GParted

    Because the partition table is a legacy style, MBR, you have a "logical partition" for Linux. This is wholly contained within sda4, which is the "Extended Primary Partition". The free space is...
  2. Re: What software to use for making a booting USB ?

    I used to use unetbootin, then yumi, then dd, then ddrescue. They were all too complicated.

    These days I use cp. Yes, cp. Any command that can move bits, unmolested, from A --> B can be used....
  3. Re: Ubuntu does not always communicate with server.

    If you can ping the router from both systems, it isn't general networking that's in the way.
    Check for routing tables that aren't bi-directional and check the firewalls on each computer and filters...

    Did you mean to point to the Apple solution? There is another page, linked above, for normal X86-64 systems. I understand that Apple does things different.

    Re: how to use ubuntu desktop without console?

    This is not true. My mother never opened a terminal in her life and she used Lubuntu for years.

    About once a year, she'd ask me to do something for her and because I lived 3 states away, I'd ssh...

    [SOLVED] Re: ssh-copy_id playing dead

    $ ssh-copy-id username$ipa.ddr.ess
    is wrong.
    It needs to be

    Details matter, as always.
    The username is only needed if it is different from the username on...

    [ubuntu] Re: I Can't Install Ubuntu Successfully

    Don't install, use the "Try Ubuntu" choice on the boot menu. If that doesn't work, then there is likely an incompatibility with the flash drive and the USB controller. I wish there were some way to...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: 20.04 AD user cannot connect to TrueNAS CIFS share via PAM Mount - Error code 13

    Use NFS, not CIFS to mount shared storage between Unix systems. NFSv4 does system-to-system Kerberos authentication and has better performance and allows native, POSIX, file permission controls.

    [kubuntu] Re: Can I remove Ruby ?

    There is no core OS reason to have ruby installed on 20.04.
    As for dependencies, you'll need to delve deep into the ruby system and APT to determine that. Gems manually installed outside of APT...

    [kubuntu] Re: Older CPU out-pacing newer one

    I'm thinking it is hardware still. Work through the log files and correct each warning and error
    or understand why they aren't important.
    Hardware can still work, but be failing. HDDs do this...

    Re: can't see videos online

    VLC should play any video worth seeing.
    If you want a CLI program, mpv is quite excellent.
    I've never been impressed by gstreamer.

  15. Re: Trouble nagivating to /home directory in terminal

    Linux (and all Unix-based OSes) are multi-user. All commands have a userid connected and the HOME for each user is a known thing if there is a login for that user. This is stored in the POSIX...

    Did you setup routing between the 2 subnets?

    Would be good to tell people which VPN software is being used (don't make us guess) and to post the config files and routing tables. Are you using...

    Re: Soft link to /dev/null?

    Best not to hard code log files. Then you could just set the log file in the settings to /dev/null. Wouldn't that be easier?

    BTW, log files belong in /var/log/ somewhere or you can use the...

    You can download a Win10 "trial" version directly from MSFT. I think it won't update/patch, but for your needs, that could be a better answer? Also, not all BIOS update tools support Win7 at this...

    [ubuntu] Re: archive manager .... on raspberry pi 4

    When I change backup methods, I usually have a 30 day overlap where I do both for each system involved. Plus, until I actually do a restore, I don't believe the backups are good enough to be trusted.
