    Re: Migrating from Windows 10 to Ubuntu

    It would be worth trying an Xubuntu live USB. The install USBs have a try before you install option. It will be slow to load because of USB throughput, but should give you a feel for how it performs...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Hope Ubuntu 20.04 comes w/Kernel 5.6 as it will include WireGuard VPN

    Probably. Maybe time to do some learning. Snapshot my system drive first, just in case I bork it (quite likely).

    [SOLVED] Re: Xubuntu & snapd

    sudo apt purge snapd seemed to do it for me. I haven't seen them come back yet.
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Hope Ubuntu 20.04 comes w/Kernel 5.6 as it will include WireGuard VPN

    That's a shame. There are a lot of reasons to go for 5.6. It just means that 20.04 will outdated before it is even released.

    But I have read that canonical plan to back-port Wireguard into 20.04,...

    [SOLVED] Re: Xubuntu & snapd

    I know chromium-browser is only available in a snap package from 19.10 onwards. I gather most other packages are not forcing you to use snap yet. I think the distro's plan is for more snap packages...
  6. Re: Routing between individual ips internal networks

    That looks OK for the outgiong direction.
    What about getting replies back (the reverse direction)?
    And what about firewall rules in 10.0.0.5?
  7. Re: Routing between individual ips internal networks

    Does 10.1.0.100 know the correct route to reach 10.0.0.5? It needs to know to send via 10.1.0.1.
    Look at the routing table or ask explicitly what the route is, by running one of these two commands...
  8. Re: Does anyone have advice on how to use ESD wristbands?

    In theory you should wear an earthed wristband (one will do, you don't build static voltages across your body so one earthing will earth your entire body). But you should also keep yoru equipment on...

    [lubuntu] Re: Every Thumb Drive owned by ROOT

    No. I don't insert disks at boot time. I am guessing (haven't tried) that if they automounted, they wouldn't know which user to mount for.
    I do remember (a long time ago) that I found automounting...

    [lubuntu] Re: Every Thumb Drive owned by ROOT

    Oh no it isn't!
    For me, it's been that way for a long time.
    It is possible that I changed a desktop setting to stop automount some time in the past.
    But anyway, the default mount path is the...

    [lubuntu] Re: Every Thumb Drive owned by ROOT

    IO agree that something is wrong. For me (aind I think it has been this way for a long time), when I insert the drive it does not mount until I click the icon that appears. Then it mounts under my...
  12. Re: cant paste 'sy' script into /home/graham/.gimp-2.8/plug-ins directory

    You do not need to change the permissions of your account.

    If you are working inside your home directory (/home/graham) then you should not need to raise your permissions at all. I think we need...
  13. Re: tightvnc connection refused when using IP address & accepted with localhost

    ssh -L 5901:127.0.0.1:5901 -C -N -l lance 192.168.2.5
    then use localhost:5901
    I understand that. Looks OK to me. Tunnel 5901 from local PC to the destination's 5901.
    Be aware that by default, this...
  14. Re: cant paste 'sy' script into /home/graham/.gimp-2.8/plug-ins directory

    Do you want to put the zip file into the plugins directory, or do you want to put the two .sy files in there?

    I don't think you can copy the contents of a zip file without extracting it first. In...
  15. Re: tightvnc connection refused when using IP address & accepted with localhost

    That looks like xtightvnc is listening on all local addresses for ports 5901 and 6001. There should be no difference between connecting on localhost and connecting on other local addresses....
  16. Re: If my system freezes how do I drop out of gui to raw cli?

    If only the GUI is frozen, yes. But in that case, Ctrl-Alt-Fn should work.
    If the whole system is frozen then it won't be answering ssh calls either.
  17. Re: If my system freezes how do I drop out of gui to raw cli?

    On Xubuntu 19.10, it's still Ctrl+Alt+F1 through Ctrl-Alt-F6. But of course if the whole system is frozen (not just the GUI frozen) then that won't help.
  18. Re: tightvnc connection refused when using IP address & accepted with localhost

    Is it configured to only listen on localhost? Many services come that way so you can test and configure their security locally before reconfiguring them to accept external connections.
    This command...
  19. Re: how do I ensure that I install a NON-Snap version of an application (Thunderbird)

    Not necessarily. In Xubuntu 19.10, chromium-browser is only available as a snap.
    I gather that's true for all variants, and it's the only way Chromium will be available on *buntu in the future.

    Re: migrating ssh keys intra-machine

    I think maybe the host id is in /etc/ssh. You could try copying these across, but make sure you keep the originals to restore if it doesn't work.
  21. Re: Could someone PLEASE fix this BUG in the Ubuntu/LUKS boot process?

    Red Hat has the same issue, fwiw.

    Re: How do I get back from Ctrl-Alt-F1 ?

    Alt-F7 normally gets you back to the the GUI (assuming it's working and able to re-draw).

    No problem with double-click and type to replace words here (i.e. in this reply). But that's with Firefox...

    Re: Interface with multiple IP's

    If x and y are in two different network ranges then just adding a route to the external address via a gateway that is a network neighbour to x should be enough (I think).

    Or this command should...

    [xubuntu] Re: what input for UTF-8/Unicode in bash?

    I know it's not a lot of help, but I use Xubuntu, and the Ctrl-Shift-U input has worked for me for years (currently on 19.10). So I think there may be something unusual in your setup. I've not been...
  25. [ubuntu] Re: I cannot Copy files from downloads to my other volume

    As I understand it, the most common reason for NTFS being read-only in Linux is that it is marked unclean. See this post for an idea what to do in Linux, or better, check the disk with Windows....
