  1. Re: What I just learned about installing packages

    RPMs are for Red Hat, and their package system is yum. "sudo yum install cool-package".
    Installing RPM packages on Ubuntu is not quite so easy - there is a possibility of incompatibilities, but...
  2. Re: What is the lightest .txt editor (what is a clone of windows notepad)

    I have to agree with both DuckHook and TheFu.

    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...

    Re: Snapd threads by the dozen

    At least one snapd thread is normal - it's the daemon that runs snap packages (a kind of jail for some applications). I don't know if lots of snapd threads is normal - I would have thought not but...
  4. Re: What is the lightest .txt editor (what is a clone of windows notepad)

    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.

    nano test.txt
  5. Re: What Could Be Stopping This Wired Connection From Pinging Anything But Itself?

    Right after trying to ping the default router, use ip nei to list the known neighbour MAC addresses. I expect it will say FAILED, but it would be good to confirm this.
    My next step would be to run...

    [ubuntu] Re: Can't mount M2 partition. Known bug?

    Maybe there is a small misunderstanding here: An extended partition is not a data partition - it is a partition that acts as a container for logical partitions. So your 350G data partition needs to...
  7. Re: Cannot ping anything after setting static IP using Netplan

    I don't think you can. It still serves as an example of something to check if you have this problem.
  8. Re: Cannot ping anything after setting static IP using Netplan

    Please post that yaml file content inside code tags. The posting above is a massive syntax error because the indentation is wrong.
    When posting, you can hit "Go Advanced" at the bottom and then you...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: All Desktop Folders and Files Disappeared

    ~/snap does not normally contain a Desktop directory, so I am guessing that ~/Desktop somehow got moved. I would just move it back again. This command should do it:

    mv ~/snap/Desktop ~/
    Note that...

    Re: ndp command is not available

    Yes, ip neighbor or just ip n for short shows the content of both the IPv4 and IPv6 neighbour caches.

    @Holger_Gehrke: Ooh, thanks. I didn't know of that package.
  11. [ubuntu] Re: why do i see this messege when openning text files?

    It seems a reasonable question to me. If you double-click an executable text file in a file manager, you might mean you want to open the file in an editor, or you may want to execute(run) it. So the...

    Re: Where do I put scripts to make them work?

    If you create a bin directory in your home directory (e.g. /home/macro/bin) then that directory will automatically be added to your PATH next time you log in. But of course, only your PATH will...
  13. Re: `systemctl start SERVICE` does not start all of SERVICE@*

    I have a feeling there is some other file that says which config files openvpn should start by default. Maybe /etc/default/openvpn?
    I could be wrong, it's over ten years since I configured OpenVPN,...
  14. Re: Trouble nagivating to /home directory in terminal

    As others have pointed out, the home directory is lower case "/home", not "/Home".
    But that's not your home directory. That's the directory that holds all user's home directories. As your username...
  15. Re: "ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted" after setting UFW to deny out || 20.04

    Because I was in a hurry when I scribbled that note. Doh! You are quite right - you need to allow it out, of course. Sorry.
  16. [ubuntu_mate] Re: How to route traffics(through wifi-connections) by domain name(desktop)?

    Do you want to maintain your house internet connection for everything else as you play, or to drop the house connection and use the phone exclusively while playing? If you wnat to split the traffic,...

    Re: Firefox Snap as Default in 21.10

    Hmm. I'm going to have to find an alternative browser. That's a shame - I have used firefox since it first launched.
  18. Re: Root and EFI mounts show on Dock (Launcher) ?

    You might be able to make them go away by making an entry for them in fstab. I hide some partitions from my desktop that way, configure them for noauto so they don't actually mount. But having an...
  19. Re: "ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted" after setting UFW to deny out || 20.04

    Bump because I've significantly edited my last comment. In case linuxyogi is still in need of an answer, I think that may be it.
  20. Re: Ubuntu 20.04 21.04 how disable or remove totally the nvidia nouveau driver ?

    I could be wrong, but I suspect that setting modeset=0 does not disable the driver, but simply changes how the OS changes video modes, for instance when switching between TTY and graphical modes....
  21. Re: "ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted" after setting UFW to deny out || 20.04

    I originally said I couldn't find how to specify the direction (in/out) when entering a rule. My apologies - I just didn't read properly. It's there under "RULE SYNTAX".
    The protocol you want to...

  23. Re: "ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted" after setting UFW to deny out || 20.04

    I don't know. How did you configure the firewall in the first place? There are many firewall configuration utilities, each with their own rules and files. Look to configure the rule in the one you...

    [SOLVED] Re: How Split HD into equal size?

    It's my understanding that one of the four primary partitions has to serve as the "extended" partition which then becomes a container for the "logical" partitions 5 and upwards.
    This command will...
