  1. Re: Looking for Advice Regarding Proper Mounting of a Hard Drive Disk Partition

    uuid is filesystem specific which is what you want. We mount file systems, not partitions.

    Don't use FAT32 for any storage larger than 32GB. For SSD or spinning HDDs to be shared physically by...
  2. Re: using su when running from external hard drive

    Ubuntu uses the sudo command.

    Running any gui programs using sudo will often lead to all sorts of problems, some will prevent future logins.

    As for the external drive access, there are a number...

  4. Re: Does changing to Wayland or changing OS to Kubuntu stop from having screen tearin

    Guess we know where security goes in the priority list there. Can't remember what filename you typed a few seconds ago? Sometimes I have that issue too, but then the great-grandkids remind me. ;)

    Re: Web browsers??

    Maybe. Everyone else has an opinion, so I'll share mine too.

    If a browser meets your needs and doesn't make you unhappy for supporting some specific company or uneasy for removing privacy or...

    Re: Need help to decide-newbie alert :)

    To fix Windows drive problems, use Windows. Don't use Linux. That is asking for corruption.

    Often it is possible to use Linux to mount NTFS storage as read-only just to copy off files. But if...

    Re: Start first samba after systemd-netword

    Just a guess, but I'd make certain that the smbd.service "unit file" has a dependency on the networking.service - so networking is always running before samba. I couldn't find a smbd.service file on...

    Perhaps you could be more vague? Please? ;)

    Re: Is my sistem infected?

    Don't "accept" anything you don't understand. If you don't capture the message, preferably as text, not an image, nobody can help. You may see that in a system log file. Those are in /var/log/. Many...

    If you only have bare HDDs, you can get a USB3 "dock" for about $20-$30 that lets us drop a SATA HDD into a slot and will be seen like any other USB3 HDD. When done, power off the dock and pull the...

  13. Re: Support for new release (20.04 LTS) on a Dell notebook?

    Uh ... this is a general command that should work on any Unix system with a GUI. See the "18"? That's the font size. Play with it on your current workstation.
  14. Re: Support for new release (20.04 LTS) on a Dell notebook?

    Probably? <rbg> You can control the font, font size, foreground and background colors for xterms.

    You can change the font size...

    RKHunter and Chrookit found FALSE positives.
