    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot remove items from full disk

    You are using LVM, so there is hope. To provide an overview:

    sudo vgs
    sudo lvs
    If you've followed the best practice with LVM and haven't allocated all the VG storage to LVs, then you can...

    Standard support for all versions of Trusty ended in April. Many desktop flavors ended support in 2019 with no ESM available. Please use supported releases only.

    Re: rdiff-backup giving Python errors

    Beware of some things that are still breaking in 20.04 which could be very important. There are lots of issues with NFS, it seems. I spent the last 45 min trying to setup an NFS server on 20.04 and...

    NFS as a client (or a server) is problematic for LXD. Should have known. I need to sleep on it. Seems that running an unprivileged lxd container and using NFS isn't possible. Unprivileged...

  8. Re: Have any software control monitor settings available in Ubuntu ?

    If software doesn't exist, you can create multiple text config files (whichever are needed for the different settings), then swap those in using a script. While I don't do it for video settings, I...

    [xubuntu] Re: trying to setup vnc

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

    I don't restart by systems or a browser all that often, so I honestly don't know how quickly that specific test is.

    The gray screen is just the root window. Did you start a window manager or DE?
    If you have openbox or fvwm installed, run those. They are light and work well over vnc.
