    [SOLVED] Re: printing terminal stout to text file

    Holger_Gehrke has much the same approach than I would take, although I'm not sure while he's sending it straight to the printer.
    He gives a nice description of the sed operation, but for some...

    [xubuntu] Re: Moving /opt to another drive

    I would format the new drive and mount it to a temporary location, then copy all the files across to the new drive (e.g. cp -a /opt/* /mnt/newopt). Once happy everything is there, you can unmount the...

    [ubuntu] Re: TFTP Ubuntu 18.04

    It is quite possible that the hosting provider blocks tftp - it's a protocol that's generally only used locally for booting hardware appliances.
    My first step would be to verify that your tftp...

  6. [ubuntu] Re: You are not the owner so you cannot change these permissions

    sudo chmod g+rwx /sdb/home/tom/documents/[name of file]is wrong on two levels.
    Firstly, I think you probably mean /dev/sdb and not just /sdb.
    Secondly, /dev/sdb is the device driver intarface to...

    [SOLVED] Re: Gnome-terminal menu stuck in taskbar

    Aha! Found it. And it's a doozie!
    In desperation, I renamed my home folder and made a new one (using a console login), just so I could lose all the personal settings. That was fine. About the first...

    [SOLVED] Re: Gnome-terminal menu stuck in taskbar

    The only theme settings I can find are in gnome-tweaks. I've tried all 6 the themes offered there. They do affect the appearance of the menu items - the high contrast theme ensures that the text...

    [SOLVED] Gnome-terminal menu stuck in taskbar

    In gnome-terminal (and only gnome-terminal as far as I can tell), when I click a menu item it shows a one-line item in the taskbar instead of showing a proper modal drop-down menu. Often, the menu...

    Re: Does not source bash_aliases on startup

    I don't see why you have a problem - it works for me. My .bashrc already contains the lines you showed, but I've had that file for years so it may not match recent versions. I just added a line so I...

    Re: Does not source bash_aliases on startup

    That depends on what's wrong. The above (using .bashrc) works for me when I log in. What do you mean by 'on startup of the system'? Is this something different to the user login? Remember that as the...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: resolv and multiple search separator problem

    I don't know, but if it's of any help, 044 is the octal for a dollar $ symbol, so I think that's where the 044 is coming from.

    Re: Can't get listening ports

    Kali is a security conscious penetration testing distro. It should not surprise you at all that it's not listening on any ports by default. I'd be a little surprised if it was.

    What makes you think that any service is listening? Maybe this "other" distro doesn't have any listening processes. The only services I see listening here are avahi-daemon, cupsd (printer service),...

    Re: Can't get listening ports

    That would indeed suggest that no processes are listening, which is unusual for an Ubuntu install. Is this in a VM? What's the context?

    [all variants] Re: rsync options

    You can put wile cards in the middle of strings like this:

    rsync -avz name@adress:~/folder/0.0*/A.gz ./
    I think that will work.

  21. [xubuntu] Re: Is there a way to block all other users from making ANY changes to my computer?

    That sounds to me as though they are logging onto the same account that you are using. You shouldn't have that problem if you give them all separate accounts. Then they would be able to do stuff in...

    The context of the question is a little obscure, which is probably why so many suggested answers. Mousepad is a lightweight editor that a beginner...

    nano is often recommended for beginners. And is is part of the default install. Just open a terminal and type nano followed by the file name, e.g.
