  1. Re: What's the rationale that Ubuntu now wants to install everything in a snap packag

    These last few posts is exactly the sort of thing that would be fantastic for snaps and preservation of antique functionality. Not just games.

    I can't count how many times I had to deal with a...

    [ubuntu] Re: Firefox blocks any site

    Not sure if this applies yet but it could also be related to ciphers supported by the browser.

    Almost every site these days is https. Each browser has a collection of ciphers it knows. Each...

    [ubuntu] Re: Firefox blocks any site

    I'm thinking 11.04.

    If that's the case then there's a switch to systemd between then and now. I think the easiest route would be to backup /home, reinstall a variant of the latest, maybe xubuntu...
  4. Re: What's the rationale that Ubuntu now wants to install everything in a snap packag

    You're right, space is cheap. But even embedded equipment has ridiculous storage capabilities right now. So my only disagreement is that "normal" new and future embedded systems will be every bit as...
  5. Re: What's the rationale that Ubuntu now wants to install everything in a snap packag

    Snaps, docker and kubernetes (SDK from now on) all change the type of responsibility for the developer, and all require more space on the host to implement an application.

    They also, unlike a...

    Re: 2 Things w/ Linux

    1. Yes.

    2. This is a simple question with a complicated answer. I'll start as simply as I can and then get more detailed. When your eyes glaze over you can stop reading.

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Multiple Virtual Machines within one Ubuntu Server

    @TheFu,

    To run a VM of a system not using the native format, it must use emulation. An ARM host can emulate an ARM guest in native mode, but can't emulate any other platform in native mode.

    I...

    Re: why not central home computing?

    You basically just described ChromeOS. Only with local storage and possibly local processing.

    One typical vendor of hardware that does this (apps, not chrome specifically) would be Synology. They...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Multiple Virtual Machines within one Ubuntu Server

    This thread has gotten very complicated, and unnecessarily so. Everything you mentioned is very feasible and widely supported. There is an arduino simulator and certainly Java/IoT is widely supported...

    Re: What makes ubuntu secure?

    What makes an OS secure is education, care, prompt thoughtful updates, and testing.

    There is a collection of databases for bugs and vulnerabilities and the applications and operating systems...

    [ubuntu] Re: Can I kick-start my PC?

    Did you try a power flush?

    Hold the power button down for at least 30 seconds, no matter what happens on the screen. I count to 45 or more, because I want to be sure it's been 30 seconds. It's...

    Re: Apps for doing Research in Linux

    +1 for everything @TheFu said.

    I would have included git, with or without github.

    I would also have included tmux.

    While it's a little less conventional, you might be able to use ctags with...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: how to add driver when installing canon imageRUNNER C1028iF on ubuntu 18.04

    I bought a Canon MF8050Cn color all-in-one laser scanner fax way back. It was a new model, and I literally waited over a year before I could use it. It had spotty support for a mac and none at all...

    Has the forum been reconfigured to not offer a word exclusion list on advanced search, or did I imagine it being there from the beginning? I know it has been there in every forum I can recall having...
  16. Re: how to filter out tug-of-war from Activity Page?

    I would say that you could search on everything in the last month whose title does not contain "tug of war", ordered by date descending, but that functionality seems to be missing from this forum. I...

    I like your original group of plugins. Without NoScript.

    Unlike (apparently most) other Linux users, I know that security on Linux is a big deal. Software that is written for a cross-platform tool...

    [ubuntu] Re: Compatible RAID Card for 18.04?

    I see you actually know something about RAID. Good deal.

    I'm not going to hound you, and while I don't want to put words into his mouth, probably TheFu won't either. The software solution is worth...

    [ubuntu] Re: Compatible RAID Card for 18.04?

    +1 for what TheFu said.

    There is a lot of supporting evidence suggesting that software RAID is actually better than hardware RAID. That's not to say that a really good RAID card isn't better, but...
  21. Re: Can you recommend me software similar to Skype?

    zoom for screen shares. But it's more like webex than skype, everyone has to call in.

    Slack works pretty well for voice calls.

    Pretty sure neither is in the repo.

    In general, they are interested in generating revenue from anyone willing to pay for it....
  23. [xubuntu] Re: accessing a web site via IPv6 only in firefox

    If you're looking for fingers to point, neither Ubuntu nor Gentoo use ipv6 on their web servers. Several other Linux distribution web sites and forum sites appear to not have ipv6 support either....

    Sorry, more to say about single-stack ipv6-only networks:

    Currently the state of the Internet is a dual-stack network. You have:

    A bunch of IPV4-only sites

    There are quite a few common websites which have both ipv4 and ipv6 support. Based on my experience:

    Some of them work correctly.
    Some of them have basic IPV6 support but reference things...
