    [xubuntu] Re: Zoom Communications Services

    Not sure if the whole thing is open source or just some components. For unrestricted FOSS video-chat/conferencing, consider Jitsi or Jami. Jami in particular is a GNU project. They don't come any...

    [xubuntu] Re: Zoom Communications Services

    Not being a dev of any kind, I have no idea. All I know is that a number of apps are based on it: aTAlk, Movim, Conversations, Quicksy, Xabber Jabber, and those two granddaddies of them all, MAXS and...

    Re: Having trouble with installation.

    What version and flavour are you running?
    Before installing WINE, did you first do:
    sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 && sudo apt update
    Are you installing the official Ubuntu version of WINE,...

    [ubuntu] Re: WINE32 in 20.04

    Hi kc1di,

    Though it's not an easy install, I've been able to get valuable old apps to run in older versions of WINE by running them within a LXD container. In my case, an old Windows game that...
  6. Re: Success with desktop LXD containers! Woot!

    This is high praise coming from you, who have been doing it for years. \\:D/

  8. Re: Success with desktop LXD containers! Woot!

    I've now set up a VPN that mostly works. But though it works, it throws an irritating error that I haven't been able to solve. Note that my VPN needs are less demanding than yours—I only need to...
  9. Re: Success with desktop LXD containers! Woot!

    Not yet. I haven't even gotten around to trying things out on that old laptop with the nVidia GPU yet. I promised that first, but the craziness of life has rather sidetracked me (it's scary out...
  10. Re: Success with desktop LXD containers! Woot!

    I've now added a section: Running a Full, Separate Distro to the tutorial.

    Running another distro within a container (instead of a VM) has been a long-unfulfilled dream when I started fooling...

    Running a Full, Separate Distro

    Let's say we want to run another full, separate 'buntu distro within a container. Assume that our host is running vanilla Ubuntu Bionic and we want to create a Xubuntu container based on Eoan:

    To get rid of the error, you need to:
    sudo chown -R _apt:root /tmp/mozilla_phl0 && sudo chmod -R 755 /tmp/mozilla_phl0Because _apt has no rights to traverse the directory, the apt process falls back...

  14. Re: B43legacy problem, are drivers not available in 2020?

    I suspect you are making things needlessly complicated.

    Firstly, you must have internet access by attaching a physical ethernet cable from your router to your laptop.

    Then, it's easy. Here are...

    @ Joe_Linux

    Autodave is entirely correct. You appear to be confusing the concept of an audio-disk with a data-disk. They are completely different animals. You cannot burn an audio-disk by simply...
  18. Re: B43legacy problem, are drivers not available in 2020?

    Your laptop is, indeed, very old. It's an unfortunate reality that any decent OS that you would put on it—at a minimum, one that is at least safe—is going to struggle on such old machinery. Perhaps...

    Work and organizations will dictate the apps that we must use. Unfortunately, there's no getting around that.

    But on a personal level, we thankfully have choices. I use Signal (in snap form):...

    From a security perspective: https://protonmail.com/blog/zoom-privacy-issues/

    In our understandable rush to offset social distancing with virtual bonding, these concerns sometimes get overlooked.

  24. Re: Success with desktop LXD containers! Woot!

    Thx for all of the above. I might give firejail a try, though I've invested so much time into apparmor that I know I'll keep using it. Apparmor is absurdly arcane, but making the effort to understand...

    Yes they do. And I use both. LVM is great, but has some limitations. I stayed away from ZFS for so long in part because LVM gave me most of what I wanted. The recent purchase of a 4 disk RPi-based...
