  1. [xubuntu] Re: How can i use mount and have it not show up in Thunar

    I'd be nervous about putting a mount in /tmp/ . /tmp gets wiped at every boot. Better to use /media/$USER-Desktop or /mnt/$USER-Desktop. I'd also be nervous about overriding permissions on any...
  2. Re: Issue after rollback to zfs root snapshot - Ubuntu 20.04 ZFS bpool/rpool - apt br

    The ZFS support in 20.04's installer is pretty clear. ZFS use is EXPERIMENTAL.
    Too bad the 20.04 release notes don't say this. They don't say much about snap packages either, which has been...
  3. Re: Linux software to control my Logitech web cam?

    I have a C920 Pro. None of the easy-to-use software does the panning, but OBS can. OBS is pretty much overkill and you have to setup a virtual webcam (kernel module) for the video conference...

    [ubuntu] Re: Upgrading/installing newer libvirt

    On my guest network, I use a lease of 7 days. As long as the device is online when the lease expires, it keeps the same IP. You could force the lease to be renewed via cron if you like. 1 hour...

    I don't use DHCP for any of my guests. Sorry. If I did, I'd let the LAN DHCP server handle it, not libvirt.

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 18.04 server networking issues

    Please be extremely accurate with terms. I doubt a "switch" has anything to do with changing networking on any OS. Generally, switches are transparent on the network.

    Same for "hubs".

  9. [all variants] Re: Full encryption for Ubuntu: Why isn't this taken seriously?

    I agree with most of Paddy's statements, but disagree on a few too.
    ecryptfs is a bad implementation. LUKS is far better for so many reasons.

  10. Re: No access to network mediaplayer with ubuntu 20.04

    What is the WD model, exactly? Look for model number, but not S/N to go with the name.
    You're going to need to know the exact versions of the the exact protocols supported by that WD machine.
  11. Re: Timeshift - Backup of snapshots via Rclone

    I would never use a tgz as part of a backup or restore strategy if the total size was over 50MB. There are so many better tools.

    $ dpkg -l|grep libvirt
    will show all the libvirt stuff and the versions.

    Are there specific features in the newer version that you seek? ...

    Re: Why the difference.

    There are multiple memory slots on most motherboards. A system with 2x1GB RAM will have a total of 2GB RAM. But usually on those sorts of systems, some of the RAM gets taken for use by an iGPU, so...
  14. [all variants] Re: btrfs/zfs style data duplication and verification on DVDR/BDR?

    par2? If you just want to know whether a file is corrupted, use 1% par2 files. If you want to fix minor corruption, use 5-10% par2 files. I strongly suspect this is what the rar format uses.

  18. [SOLVED] Re: Can't Login after moving /home to a new drive

    So, no ls -al coming?
    Also, there are multiple ways to use the UUID as the first parameter. Shouldn't matter, but in 20.04 the default seems to use the /dev/disk/by-UUID/...... method.
  19. [SOLVED] Re: Can't Login after moving /home to a new drive

    Well, the fstab lines are commented out and there are 2 different lines for /home.
    I wouldn't assume sdc1 or sdd1 is the correct device to be used for manual mounts. Devices change order from...

    Please post some facts.

    Can you manually mount the disk using a "Try Ubuntu" flash drive?
    Can you run fsck on the specific partition/LV where you created the ext4 file system?
