    Re: PC shuts down randomly and then restarts

    Random restarts are almost always due to bad power quality. One major advantage of a laptop computer is that it has a built-in uninterruptable power supply.
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu backup tool cost me all my bookmarks and history

    The lsof command show which files are open by which processes, then you can kill the offending process.
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Seek text editor that can autotype specific text

    This works with anything:

  5. [SOLVED] Re: I completely lost my partition and I'm not sure what happened

    Cloning the whole kit and kaboodle is basically a Windows thing, where it is difficult to reinstall the system from scratch due to numerous licensing and registration hassles.

    With Linux, just...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Seek text editor that can autotype specific text

    There are also generic solutions. For example Autotype, which works with anything.
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Troubleshooting periods of intense resource usage and crashes

    Look in the crontabs to see what is scheduled for 2 am. Look in the system logs around that time. Disable cron and see if the problem goes away, etc.

    It probably doesn't crash. If something...
  8. Re: Ubuntu will not boot after latest update:

    Hi Fred,

    Before faffing with partitions and boot, first backup your data!

    You can do that with an install CD / USB widget.
    Once booted up, mount (just a clicketyclick with the file manager)...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Is Samba read/write rate performance on Ubuntu 20.04 capped at around 11MB/s?

    Note that ordinary FTP is also much faster. FTP is natively supported by Windows file managers also. The user level security is bad, but so is that of SMB.
  10. [SOLVED] Re: [18.04.5] right-click command clear all meta tags from all mp3s in curr dir

    In Bash, recursion over a bunch of files is handled with the "find exec" command. With find, it is a one liner to process many files.

    Beware of unbalanced quotes.
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Is Samba read/write rate performance on Ubuntu 20.04 capped at around 11MB/s?

    The performance is not capped. SMB is just a very inefficient and chatty protocol. SFTP will be even worse, since is also has to encrypt and decrypt the data. Run tcpdump or wireshark to see what...
  13. [all variants] Re: Variable inside Bash Script - Not getting used (variable name used instead)

    Look into the use of the export keyword for variables.

    [all variants] Re: Firefox and trackers

    The Truly Paranoid use OpenBSD. So before getting bothered with browser security, you should fix the OS first.
  18. [SOLVED] Re: Accidently lost /home during resizing process

    The most important question is: Do you have a backup of your data?
    If yes, then you can simply reinstall, which takes about 20 minutes.

    I think you need to read the script to see how it works.
  21. Re: ubuntu 20.04 server crashing my home network

    Regardless of the type of ISP account, the network should not 'crash'. Look at the packets with tcpdump or wireshark. Poking around like a black bear in a coal mine in the dark, is a waste of time.
  22. Re: ubuntu 20.04 server crashing my home network

    Don't poke around in the dark. Run tcpdump and see what is going on. There are many misconfiguration possibilities that can lead to packet storms.

  24. [ubuntu] Re: How to speedup transfer rate when copying big files?

    You can speed it up by buying better quality flash memory devices. SD cards come with speed ratings of 4, 6, 10 etc. With USB sticks, you are kinda lost in a sea of sargassum though.
