    Re: A Philosophical Question

    Android, by far, is the most popular Linux distro. I'd bet there are millions of embedded devices running custom Linux installs that we never know about. Any non-trivial IoT device is running...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Restore from Backup failed due to unknown error using Deja-dup

    Always welcome. Sorry I don't know the answer. I've never used DejaDup.


    That's important.


    No! X/Windows is the Unix Windowing system. It Predates MS-Windows and you've probably been using...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Restore from Backup failed due to unknown error using Deja-dup

    Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused
    That probably means that the deja-dup "server" port cannot be connected. Is it running? Is there a firewall in the way?

  4. [ubuntu] Re: How to fully secure and harden a Ubuntu 20.04 laptop?

    I fear you are trying to jump to the end of the book, without reading the introduction and basics first.
    Are you good at networking?
    Are you good at C programming? Almost all computer OSes today...

    Re: A Philosophical Question

    There is a real fear by most people, especially those who are younger of "missing out." On what, they don't really know, but they don't want to miss out. That is what drives social networks. Ever...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: How to fully secure and harden a Ubuntu 20.04 laptop?

    I think you are missing the point. There isn't any things that is "totally secure". There are just ways to make a system less hack-able, up to a point. The amount of effort involved depends...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Restore from Backup failed due to unknown error using Deja-dup

    /USR/libexec/deja-dup/duplicity Looks like an incorrect name.

    Re: What are the licences for ubuntu

    The licenses are included with the software. Each project may have a different license, so you'll need to review them all. Most will be GPL. Some will be BSD, MIT, and all of perl uses the Perl...

    Re: A Philosophical Question

    I've had different experiences with Windows. My printer isn't supported. My scanner and fax machine isn't supported. My TV tuners are only supported after multiple driver installs and multiple...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: How to fully secure and harden a Ubuntu 20.04 laptop?

    That's true. Remember reading about a printer being forced to make specific noises so a fax machine in the same room could dial out reproducing the saved pages at a remote spying location. Both the...

    Re: Automount and not existing Keys

    autofs == automount. It comes from the amd daemon (that's redundant) from the Unix world in the 1990s. amd and autofs both mount and umount storage on-demand, when a process requests is. This is...

    I think every individual will have different answers, sometimes, different answers based on the time of day.
  13. [ubuntu] Re: How to fully secure and harden a Ubuntu 20.04 laptop?

    Don't want to connect to the internet?
    a) Don't plug in any ethernet cable.
    b) Disable wifi in the BIOS.
    c) Disable bluetooth in the BIOS.
    d) Don't connect any USB devices of any sort, since they...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: passwd not working after editing /etc/shadow

    To change the password for any user, use:

    $ sudo passwd {username}

    To change the current user's password, use:

  15. [ubuntu] Re: Make xdotool accessible to every local user in ubuntu

    xdotool has to be tied to an X/session to work. X/Sessions are per-userid and don't get created until a GUI login happens.
    Google found this, which appears to have a possible workaround....
  16. Re: Make File or Folder immutable/unchangeable

    Completely? No. /etc/hosts files are a 20% solution, at best. Same for DNS. Anyone with any technical skill can get around those.

    Why can he modify the /etc/hosts file at all? Don't give his...

  18. Re: Is it possible to access Ubuntu from Windows 10 running in Virtualbox

    No. Did I say that?

    There's no PROOF that any hypervisor is more secure than any other to my knowledge, but KVM is what all the VPS providers in the world use, it is part of the core Linux kernel...

    [SOLVED] Re: How do I hide a window?

    xdotool probably doesn't work with Wayland, so when running with Xorg isn't available anymore, we'll need a different tool. I use it and cnee to automate some website scaping on a weekly basis.

    [SOLVED] Re: How do I hide a window?

    Don't use a task bar? There are lots of window managers that don't have one.
    However, you cannot remove it from the process table ... er ... without hacking the kernel. This is how root-kits work...
  21. Re: Is it possible to access Ubuntu from Windows 10 running in Virtualbox

    Yes.
    Breaking out of a VM is a test every hypervisor has failed. Why use a desktop tool like virtualbox when you have KVM - an enterprise tool?
