  1. Re: How can I hide my personal files completely in computer ?

    Who are you trying to prevent from gaining access? That more than anything else would determine the steps to be taken. Blocking a 15 yr old is easier than blocking a Unix admin than blocking a...
  2. Re: Looking for creative ways to reduce disk space occupied by system folders

    Thanks. i prefer to have scripts that depend on sudo generate the commands, not actually perform them.

    #!/bin/sh

    snap list --all | awk '/disabled/{print $1, $3}' |
    while read...

    A few things to consider ...

    Why let any non-corporate user access /wp-admin/ on any request?

  5. [ubuntu] Re: Logictech Media Server 7.9 unable to see /dev/sda

    Don't confuse the entire drive (sda) with the partition that holes a file system (sda1).
    MS-Windows has warped too many people's minds on this topic by using the "drive" term when "partition" is the...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: why there are so many 'ubuntu base' updates lately? almost evry day or so

    We can sign up for security-only updates if there is a real feeling that you are a target.

    As a desktop user, patchng daily when everything is working fine seems overkill. Sometimes the first...

    Re: Snaps and permissions

    That was 1 purpose, but on my 16.04 systems, only about 20% of snaps actually work. The packagers don't include all the dependencies from core libraries that 18.04 and 20.04 include. That lack for...

    You can't for SSL encrypted traffic without performing a MiTM certificate setup and having a machine that all clients support as authorize certificate system. I've seen this with Bluecoat setups,...
  9. [lubuntu] Re: New to Lubuntu, question about docx and increasing size of things

    130GB!!!

    The OS should easily fit in 25G.

    HOME directories can be an size needed, but I think of that as only stuff I created, that isn't media files, so it is hard imagine that to be larger...

    Re: rdiff-backup remote permission issues

    I’d be less concerned about end-user files than daemon account files. Anything in a HOME should be owned by the userid owning that HOME. 5 userids would take 15 seconds to fix post-restore. What...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Computer Lab for handicapped adults.... Can you help me?????

    That old thread provided a number of options.
    Seems some basic understanding for how Unix-systems work is lacking based on the questions. There is no need to reformat a HDD. That would be a total...

    Re: Snaps and permissions

    if your HOME directories use NFS, snaps don't work at all. Period. inside a business using NFS for HOME directories is THE standard method.

    Now suppose you work with a team of people and keep...
  14. Re: Setting up inline content filtering with e2guardian

    squid becomes the filter and can be setup as a transparent proxy. I'm probably missing some subtle requirement.

    And using a squid-proxy to filter isn't an option?
  17. [kubuntu] Re: How to set custom DNS servers and use DHCP on kubuntu 20.04 using netplan config?

    dhcp4: true?
    and remove all the connection-specific stuff.
    But wifi connections are where the network-manager gui/tui would work better than a netplan-yaml file.

    bugs? Each being fixed one at a time?

    I patch weekly to avoid mid-week issues from low priority updates.

    There isn't 1 answer for each of your questions.
    Each choice has pros and cons. There are 20+ different web servers to choose.
    For setting a static ip, there are multiple ways.

    Re: rdiff-backup remote permission issues

    Don't think the file ownership, groups, permissions, ACLs will be retained without root saving the data locally. Have you checked that?
  22. [lubuntu] Re: New to Lubuntu, question about docx and increasing size of things

    None of your questions are dumb. And don't worry, you will ask some in the future. We all do both when we start out and 20 yrs later.

    iOS, OSX, Android are all Unix-like as well and follow the...
  23. [lubuntu] Re: New to Lubuntu, question about docx and increasing size of things

    Probably shouldn't run any end-user programs with sudo. There are often repercussions that are unintentional. sudo is for administrative needs and generally shouldn't be used for any gui programs.

    There is a reason for that. ;)
