  1. Re: SFTP connection from Windows (Filezilla) to Ubuntu.

    You do not need vsftpd. Plain FTP has absolutely ZERO, nothing, nada, to do with sftp.

    If ssh works from the client to the server, then sftp should work too. If it doesn't, it is definitely a...

    Re: I don't understant this alert

    My mistake. /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ is the directory. I use tab-completion for stuff like this so I don't have to remember exact details, just enough to discover the correct answer while typing.

    New maintenance people are great!

    Hopefully, they will implement the sparse file support patch ASAP!

    Amazon changed their DRM for music which broke all my Linux access last month sometime. I don't use it much, so it isn't the end of the world. Also, have a cheap Fire 8 tablet, so the amazon music...

  10. [ubuntu] Re: How to change the "HOME" dir to another disk

    I think the "HOME" move already happened, but old packages and a swapfile are eating into the / partition. /boot/ is nearly full, so older kernels need to be removed too:

    sudo apt autoremove...
  11. Re: “Install alongside Windows 10” gone from Ubuntu 18.04 Installer

    If you plug in the ethernet, then you can use boot-repair to post the information we need to actually provide valid advice. Up to this point, it has been educated guessing.

    [SOLVED] Re: upload but not delete permission

    Really, using ACLs shouldn't be needed for 99.99999% of all permissions. The normal chmod method is sufficient with a little pre-thought. I've been a Unix admin 25 yrs and used ACLs 2 times in all...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: How to change the "HOME" dir to another disk

    BTW, the first post says you want to use sda4, but there isn't any sda4. What's up with that?
  16. [ubuntu] Re: How to change the "HOME" dir to another disk

    So, it seems we have a failure to communicate, perhaps. A HOME directory is a specific thing for each username/login. It is not system-wide.
    echo $HOME
    will show the HOME for the current...

    What facts?

    Did the previous partition/directory with the HOME directories get moved to the...

    Re: MPI SSH without password?

    For each client machine and userid, you must make an ssh-key. The command to do that is:

  21. [ubuntu] Re: How to change the "HOME" dir to another disk

    Those are device names, which can change from boot to boot. Best to use UUIDs or LABELs or by-path/ links which do not change to control where the partitions are mounted.

  22. [ubuntu] Re: Unable to find what's wasting all my partition storage

    I'd start with a find command to find really big files and start deleting. There's a reason to keep the OS on a separate partition. Generally, / with 25G should be enough. Then have /home/ on a...
