    Re: tar archive - empty directories

    /dev, /proc, /run and /sys are real directories in your root directory, used as mountpoints for pseudofilesystems. As you used the --one-file-system option, their contents were not included in the...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: I can't type special characters with disability keyboard ♿️

  5. [SOLVED] Re: I can't type special characters with disability keyboard ♿️

    Other options for typing characters not found on your keyboard include ctrl+shift+u+(hexadecimal code) or compose sequences. Using those, there's no need to reach for the mouse, so it's normally...

  7. [SOLVED] Re: How to modify file last modifying timestamp to equal its Nemo creation date?

    I'm puzzled.

    When the camera creates a picture, it makes a jpeg file and (normally) stores the creation time according to the camera's clock in the exif data. Then it stores the jpeg file on its...

    [SOLVED] Re: Accidently deleted EFI directory

    Recreate that partition, with the EFI flag. It will get a new UUID, so I think you have to edit /etc/fstab to match. Mount it and reinstall grub:

  14. [ubuntu] Re: Downgrade from HWE kernel 5.11 to GA kernel 5.4

    It can't boot the 5.11 kernel if all 5.11 stuff is gone, so what's left?
