  1. Re: /usr/share/defaults/etc/profile no such file or directory

    There is no such file in Ubuntu. I am guessing you need to edit the file to look for /etc/profile instead. I think that script wasn't written for Ubuntu.

    Yes, that comes out as though I'm having a pop at people who replied, which was not my intent. Sorry. But these forums are normally so good at answering people's questions that I really was surprised...

    Re: File structure and permission assitance

    That directory should look like this:

    ~$ ls -ld /etc/udev/rules.d
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 May 12 18:47 /etc/udev/rules.d

    and the command to put it back that way is this:

    sudo chmod 755...
  4. Re: Help, just started using linux and I'm confused

    synaptic may help you find packages to install (sudo apt install synaptic). It's much more detailed than that software store thing.

    [ubuntu] Re: How does it work - install software

    Largely as SeijiSensei says - programs are generally published as source code. Each distribution (Ubuntu or Red Hat for example) will compile the code for their distribution. In the process they...

    [server] Re: Problem to connect to outside networks

    For the PCs you "can't see", are they local PCs on 192.168.69.*, or remote PCs?

  7. Re: Help, just started using linux and I'm confused

    Just in case it's not clear from the above posts, the leading "/" makes a big difference. A leading "/" means starting "from the top", and just "cd /" will take you to the top of the tree.

    If you...

    Re: How to enable tree view on nautilus

    While testing other file managers, I suggest you try thunar (the Xubuntu default manager). It won't pull in too many new libraries. I'm happy with it. I tend to prefer the file layout in the attached...

    Re: Lubuntu: is it just for Asian users?

    No. It's for all users. I think you will find that all those fonts you list are also capable of rendering non-asian characters.
    Which characters are you having difficulty rendering?
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Gow do you cd into a directory with multiple word name?

    Use quotes round the filename, or use a backslash in front of the spaces. I guess you mean /home (Linux is case sensitive), and there is not really a space before Documents.

  11. [server] Re: Why on earth did anyone think netplan was better?

    Yaml syntax is rather hard to get used to. I'm guessing, but I think your indenting for the route is wrong, and missing a space before the 'to'. Try this:

    network:
    ethernets:
    eno1:

    If it's a cheap microscope, I would guess it uses a cheap/commodity webcam sensor. My guess is that you have a reasonably good chance of it working out of the box, and be able to see the images with...

    [ubuntu] Re: # and ; meaning in Linux.

    That's not at all universally true. Many configuration files use just one or the other. I think that being able to use either in a configuration file is unusual.

    [SOLVED] Re: IPTables - Direct Connection

    In my opinion you would be better setting a policy of DROP than putting a DROP at the end. A DROP at the end makes it difficult to append new rules (will never be reached), or might be deleted in...
