  1. [ubuntu] Re: Pioneer optical drive not communicating with/ recognized by programs

    First use 'lsblk' to find the actual device name for your optical drive. It's probably (/dev/)'sr0'. In vlc open Tools->Preferences, Input/Codecs and change 'Default optical device' from '/dev/cdrom'...

    Re: Trojan, Worm Question

    Do you mean you're running Windows as your OS and have Ubuntu on Windows inside the Windows Subsystem for Linux ?

    That would explain why your 'df' output is slightly weird: everything except the...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: I am struggling to install Ethernet Adapter Drivers in my Ubuntu 20.04

    Have you tried just connecting the device ? The driver module 'ax88179_178a.ko' (which this readme tells you to compile from source) already exists on my system in various places under...

    [ubuntu] Re: Snaps & root memory

    Another command that's very useful in tracking down what's using up storage is


    du -x --max-depth=1 /|sort -g

    [SOLVED] Re: Snaps bloating out my / partition

    That's one very tame-able pig: read 'man 5 journald.conf' and configure SystemMaxUse, RunTimeMaxUse, and MaxRetentionSec to your taste. Because of its binary format (basically the id of a catalogue,...

    [SOLVED] Re: echo $DISPLAY returns nothing

    xdotool is for controlling a X11 based GUI; tmux is a terminal multiplexer. Not the same thing at all, so this will not work. DISPLAY is a variable that should give the address and number of the...

    [SOLVED] Re: notify-send

    Here a not all that helpful quote from the manual:

    You could try setting the urgency of the message to critical ('-u critical'), the spec for desktop notifications says those should not time out....
  11. Re: Duplicate KeepassXC in Ubuntu software

    If you look very closely at the details of the two, you'll probably find the new one is a snap and the older one is a 'normal' (.deb) package. Debian packages are kept at the same version for the...

  14. Re: UDF-fs data of optical drive media by kernel

    There's a package named udftools which has a program named udfinfo. I have not tried it myself, but the man-page on github makes me think it might be useful for what you want.

  15. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 21.04. Display list of previous n commands displayed as a selectable list?

    If you enter 'history 20' you'll get a list of the last twenty commands prefixed with their line numbers in the history file. You can then enter '!' followed by a line number with no space in between...
  16. Re: Error when unpacking archive on Ubuntu 16.04

    'End-of-central-directory signature not found' usually means a broken or incomplete download. But when I tried to download from the URL you gave and examined the file carefully, I found that it's...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Hellp with ssh session and the display on the server

    You could use 'screen'. It's normally used as a kind of text-based windowing system in a terminal and as a way to run processes that take a long time without staying logged in the whole time (you...

    [ubuntu] Re: Editing Files

    The best way to edit files that need root permissions to write to is to use 'sudoedit'. This copies the file (using root if necessary), opens the copy in an editor, and copies it back (again using...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: /var/log/auth.log Question Relating to Ubuntu 20.04

    It's not so much a bug as a consequence of the decision not to allow root login. You don't login as root, you login as a normal user and then temporarily act as root through sudo. Since you're not...
  20. Re: Share folder on local network with ubuntu

    You might want to take a look at the 'net' command from the package samba-common-bin, especially the 'usershare' sub-command. Basically you have to allow it in the '[GLOBAL]' section of the smb.conf,...

    It kind of depends on the screen saver/locker you're using. light-locker has a command line tool 'light-locker-command' which will give you the current state if you call it with the option '--query'....
  23. [ubuntu] Re: /var/log/auth.log Question Relating to Ubuntu 20.04

    @schragge: Sorry, but /etc/security/ is a directory. /etc/securetty is a file (man 5 securetty for details). It's part of the package login and lists the terminals from which root may login. It is...
  24. Re: How to get Firefox to launch then close at given times (Ubuntu 20.04 LTS)

    A decidedly lower-tech solution would be one of those timer-controlled TV-Simulators (basically a couple of strong LEDs and a bit of circuitry to switch them at random). Depending on the device it...
