    Re: Deluge not using PROXY

    If you do not want your IP to be exposed, then all of the traffic from Deluge has to be proxied and this can only be done by using a SOCKS proxy. HTTP proxies are AFAIK only used for HTTP requests...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Trying to run shell script automatically after flash drive mounts

    You are missing a comma in your udev rule, right after ATTRS{partition}=="1"
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Trying to run shell script automatically after flash drive mounts

    As mentioned above, the "RUN" command is executed outside the shell, so a shell-script will only work if you add it as argument to the shell itself:


    RUN+="/bin/sh /home/knead/udevtest.sh"

  4. UDISKSCTL: spins up all drives on 20.04 but not on 18.04 :-|

    I have a bunch of HDD's in my computer, all encrypted using LUKS, and all drives are normally unmounted and in standby mode with "hdparm -y /dev/sd*". Whenever I want to access one of the drives,...

    [SOLVED] Re: at command

    I'm quite sure that's not gonna work. When "sudo shutdown" is executed by "at", which is running at user-level, the system will ask for a password causing the "at" command to hang or fail.

    [SOLVED] Re: at command

    You can specify an amount of minutes to elapse before shutdown, eg. "sudo shutdown +10" = shut down in 10 minutes. You should still be able to use the "at" command, but it must be sudo'ed for...

    Re: Stop icons on desktop from moving

    It's friggin annoying! That happens on Kubuntu as well. I've found that locking the icons stops this madness, though!
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Trying to run shell script automatically after flash drive mounts

    I do not think a service is the right tool for the task, what you want is more like an Udev rule which allows you to perform actions when devices are added and/or removed. First of all you need the...
  10. Re: Grub Menu Not displayed at boot until Ubuntu log on

    The actual GRUB script generated by "update-grub" is stored as "/boot/grub/grub.cfg". Since this is a shell script, manually adding something like "echo foobar > /dev/shm/grub.launc" into the file...
  11. Re: Grub Menu Not displayed at boot until Ubuntu log on

    If GRUB does not display the menu with that config file, my suggestion is that the active GRUB belongs to a different system or is installed on a wrong drive.

    If you have wayland enabled (I think it's default on Lubuntu these days), try to disable it.
  13. Samba shares on 20.04 not available in Windows, works OK with 18.04 :-|

    After installing Kubuntu 20.04.1 it seems like the Samba shares (on the 20.04 system) does not show up in Windows (7+10 via LAN) anymore. I'm using the same smb.conf file as I did on 18.04 where it...
  14. Re: Grub Menu Not displayed at boot until Ubuntu log on

    Did you make the other modifications, like setting a timeout? If there is no timeout the GRUB menu will not display. On some systems, holding down the SHIFT key during boot will force the GRUB menu...
  15. Re: Grub Menu Not displayed at boot until Ubuntu log on

    Edit the file "/etc/default/grub" and set these lines to the values given here:

    GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=true
    #GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden
    GRUB_TIMEOUT=3

    "GRUB_DEFAULT" is the...

    Re: script can't detect sd-card

    Usually you will not be able to access /dev/sda if any partition(s) on the device are mounted, try to un-mount both the mounted partitions and try again.

    [SOLVED] Re: Howto edit a .DB file?

    That's not entirely true.. Content examination is more like a fall-back in most modern distributions, the caches/databases containing information about mime types are "compiled" from XML files found...

  21. Re: System crash, mouse and keyboard freezes

    If you by this means that there was a lot of bytes with a value of 0x00 written to the log, this is usually caused by a hard reset which causes the log-file not to be closed properly. The null's are...
  22. Re: du - different results when comparing macOS and Linux directories

    The difference may be related to a difference in size of file system entries and extra space allocated for sparse files. Try command "du -sb" to get the apparent byte size instead of a block size.

    7..23 means every hour from 7 to 23 - both inclusive. This means that the timer is repeated hourly from 7:30 to 23:30. In a terminal you could examine the output of:
