    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot remove items from full disk

    The lvextend and lvreduce commands can only resize certain file systems with the -r switch (there's a longer switch version, if you want more clarity), so be certain you have one of those file...
  3. Re: Can you place a .txt file onto a pdf from the command line?

    Perhaps pdfattach will work? It is part of the poppler-utils package.

    OR use pandoc to make PDF from many other formats.

    $ pandoc test.txt -o test.pdf

    And use pdfunite to place the new...

    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot remove items from full disk

    So, whenever using lvextend, **always** add the -r switch. This will do the resize2fs automatically.

    I think your VM storage is the real issue long term. You can easily cut that 50% to get some...

    Re: Apache2 failed to start

    Linking to files in a HOME directory is generally a bad idea for apache. There is another method designed for exactly this purpose - the public_html option in apache. Look that up and use it...

    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot remove items from full disk

    +1.

    I love starting small, but being prepared to add more space as needed, where needed. THAT is a chief reason for using LVM (along with snapshots and sparse LVs).

    /var also contains the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Cannot remove items from full disk

    You are using LVM, so there is hope. To provide an overview:

    sudo vgs
    sudo lvs
    If you've followed the best practice with LVM and haven't allocated all the VG storage to LVs, then you can...

    Re: rdiff-backup giving Python errors

    Beware of some things that are still breaking in 20.04 which could be very important. There are lots of issues with NFS, it seems. I spent the last 45 min trying to setup an NFS server on 20.04 and...

  15. Re: Have any software control monitor settings available in Ubuntu ?

    If software doesn't exist, you can create multiple text config files (whichever are needed for the different settings), then swap those in using a script. While I don't do it for video settings, I...
