    Re: X2go client

    IDK, but it sounds like one machine has ssh keys setup PRIOR to x2go and the other one didn't.

    x2go uses the NX protocol. That protocol includes using ssh to tunnel all connections between the...

    Re: Bit for Bit copy of a HDD > Image file

    I would use ddrescue. It keeps working when dd stops at the first failure.
    All the options are spelled out in the manpage for each command. It is best to check the manpage ON YOUR SYSTEM for the...
  4. Re: TechLead claims almost all software developers in high tech firms use MacOS

    From 2011-early 2019, I've been using a chromebook - with chromeOS wiped - and a Linux install for software development.

  5. [ubuntu] Re: please help me i'm new to ubuntu and don't rly understand -sound don't work

    There is no downgrade migration option assuming you are thinking 18.04 as the downgrade target. You should be scared. This is major surgery.

    Basically, you manually backup stuff you don't want to...

    Sorry, I don't know the answer for any plain FTP server. Haven't set one up in over 20 yrs. If you wait, someone else should try to help.

  8. [ubuntu] Re: man works only if I sudo, please help to fix this

    Looks like you've been changing permissions all over the place. Why?
    Also, it appears you might have logged in using a root account. DON'T DO THAT.

    I'm unwilling to play wack-a-mole with...

    Re: Where's the .sh file?

    This is non-standard. Try

    BTW, expect that installing in this way will break dependencies for the package system in 3-6 months and you will need to remove...

    Re: vsftpd wont start with ssl options

    Why not use openssh-server with sftp instead? Pretty much any Unix file manager understands the sftp:// URL and will honor ssh-keys. So, you get easier use, better security, and much more...

  14. [ubuntu] Re: How to allocate more space in /var directory

    There are 2 ways to solved this.

    There is a cheap trick that you can use to solve this. It isn't elegant, but it will work. You'll need to use alternate boot media to do it and you'll need to...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: man works only if I sudo, please help to fix this

    Check file permissions. It is most likely that you used sudo incorrectly and messed up the permissions somewhere. Perhaps in /tmp/ or $HOME or /usr/share/man/

    Don't use sudo when it isn't needed.

    Unix is case sensitive. Linux is too. I would consider a case-insensitive search to be a bug unless there is a checkbox to toggle between the choices.
  22. [ubuntu] Re: Mount NAS NFS File shares - Allow full r/w control

    TL;DR

    Make the userids map 1-for-1. If the userid is 1000 on Ubuntu and 500 on a Mac, then those are different userids. Make them the same. The same applies to groups. All Unix systems should...
