    Re: Convert VHS tape to mp4

    The answers so far are very "US-centric", as US consumer devices have no AV outputs (why should consumers have a choice?), forcing the use of UHF output/tuner, which is totally mindless. In the rest...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: rdiff-backup: how to exclude hidden files and folders ?

    From the man page, I'd say you need to use --exclude-globbing-filelist instead of just --exclude-filelist in your command.
  3. Re: do-release-upgrade 18/04 to 20.04 corrupted video issue

    Which (x)Ubuntu? My crystal ball is broken.

    Re: set Ubuntu back to a "recovery point!?

    Just use Timeshift backup/restore. I always do this when fiddling with my system. Needs a reboot after restore, though.
  5. Re: Why Are EU Ubuntu Communities Like Ghost Towns ?

    forum.ubuntuusers.de is actually quite active. But it's in German, of course.
  6. [ubuntu] Re: chmod to give a remote server read priveleges to a client home directory

    chmod only changes the permissions for files/directories, meaning drwxrwxrwx (user/group/other).
    If you want to change ownership, you need to use chown, which only applies to user:group.

    As I...
  7. Re: Which version of latest dymo driver do I actually want to install?

    You need amd64. This is true for Intel and AMD CPUs.
  8. Re: Installed Kubuntu in Ubuntu 20.04 and it doesn't work

    You should move this to the "New to Ubuntu" section.
    You're in over your head here, and apparently regard Kubuntu as an app for Ubuntu.

    If you want to go to Kubuntu, the way is to do a live boot...
  9. Re: Why does my data transfer speed start fast then taper down?

    I'm sorry, but you've lost me. Try rephrasing the whole issue so it's understandable.
  10. Re: Why does my data transfer speed start fast then taper down?

    "External DVD drive"?
    Of course it's slow. It needs to burn a DVD, this takes some time. The fast burst you see at the beginning is the RAM buffers filling up, then it's down to DVD write speed.
  11. Re: Why does my data transfer speed start fast then taper down?

    Well, the interesting information would be your laptop HDD, your external HDD and the interface to it. USB2 can be many things.
  12. Re: Why does my data transfer speed start fast then taper down?

    A detailed description of your hardware might help.
  13. [lubuntu] Re: Login Manager crashes when trying to open tiling window manager session

    As a Lubuntu user for the last two years, my best advice is: don't.

    Stay with the Lubuntu session manager when logging in.

    Re: What's it Worth?

    +1 to @TheFu.

    I could add:
    * no planned obsolescence, making older HW useless
    * no automatic bundling of 3rd-rate, lousy applications as default (horoscopes etc.)
    * installation takes 30...50...
  15. Re: Could I install Ubuntu on a 8gb SD card and install the apps on an external hard

    Nice idea, but I doubt that it will work. There are so many configurations, drivers and hardware dependencies that you'd need a 100% clone of your "dinosaur laptop", and then I fail to see the gain.
  16. [lubuntu] Re: How do I make Tooltips work on the desktop? 20.04/LXQt

    OK, no solution found. It seems to be a bug, on searching I've found references to the issue elsewhere.

    I can live with it, but it's a shame when presenting Lubuntu to new users.
  17. [lubuntu] Re: How do I make Tooltips work on the desktop? 20.04/LXQt

    Thanks, westie457.
    That's a step in the right direction, but unfortunately doesn't help for LXQt. Gnome configurations don't really fly, but it gives a hint on where to search.
  18. [lubuntu] Re: How do I make Tooltips work on the desktop? 20.04/LXQt

    I know all about renaming.
    I'm talking about the mouseover tooltips that display a descriptive text about the application.
    This works in the Application Menu and the Panel, but not on the Desktop....
  19. [lubuntu] How do I make Tooltips work on the desktop? 20.04/LXQt

    I am not able to get Tooltips (mouse-over-icon) to work on the desktop.

    It works in the Application Menu, eg, placing the mouse pointer over FeatherPad, a little pop-up saying "Text Editor"...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: Please help with Ubuntu installation from USB drive to hard drive

    Not to the point, but: how on earth did you get Win10 onto that machine? And do you take a nap after starting it and when you wake up is it running?

    Jokes aside: I run several HP laptops of that...

  22. [ubuntu] Re: Slow write speed when backing up internal HDD to external USB3.0 HDD

    CharlesA did the only right thing: ran the numbers.

    I get approximately the same from 750 x 10^9 / [ 2.5 x 60 x 60 ], in my case ~83 MB/s.

    The discrepancy is probably due to GB vs. GiB and of...
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Slow write speed when backing up internal HDD to external USB3.0 HDD

    AFAIK, FAT or exFAT only allow user space operations, which is suboptimal for UNIX/Linux.

    You'd probably be better off with NTFS.
  24. [ubuntu] Re: Slow write speed when backing up internal HDD to external USB3.0 HDD

    Why are you copying ext4 to exFAT? Sounds like a bad idea to me.

    Very interesting.
