  1. Re: Google Account Action Required - Add Birthday

    Lie.
    Google doesn't have my real name on the accounts either.

    [ubuntu] Re: Shrinking LVM on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

    I agree with CelticWarrior.
    Encryption adds many complications. Best to just do a fresh install, then use your backup restore processes to put back your settings, data, configuration. Should take...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: how do you mount or to open up ddrescue .img

    Did you do what it said in post #6 above?
    Did you look in the /dev/mapper/ directory after that?
    Show your work if you'd like help. Please.

    [server] Re: Connect to WiFi from command line

    Systemd device setup puts the MAC into some device names. That is expected since a version of systemd released into 16.04 and later.

    [server] Re: Connect to WiFi from command line

    First, need to check how far the connection is getting. If it can't ping the LAN router using the IP, then no connection is being made. I use wicd-cli to do that. It has a nice TUI. nmcli should be...

    If you can remote into his system, just push the files. I assume you are using ssh for that?

  8. Re: Help with ssh error "Unable to connect to X server" xrdp not working

    Just curious, is your Windows system running an X/Server? You'd need to go out of your way to install and configure that.

    Re: Cloning xubuntu ...

    Yes.

    sudo cp {source-device} {target-device}

    Just be correct in picking the source and target devices. Get those backwards and it will be a very bad day/week/month/year.

    If you want to clone...

    Re: Do I have failing hardware?

    Give it a week, but I bet you can get 2800 Mhz - which would feel faster. I think you'd notice that difference.
  11. Re: /usr/local/lib is not in the path anymore

    Is the NAS location mounted? or using autofs?

    Re: Do I have failing hardware?

    Matched sets matter greatly with DDR4. I moved from 16G to 32G after 2 yrs. Suppose I could return under the "lifetime warranty" and ask for a 4-stick matched timing set?



    1800 Mhz is the...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Accidently lost /home during resizing process

    Whenever looking at LVM stuff, use these commands to get an overview:

    lsblk -e 7 -o name,size,type,fstype,mountpoint
    They make nice text tables/graphs of the layout....

    Re: India Income Tax Utility for AY 2021-22.

    You've made statements. Is there a question that someone might be able to help?
    Can't you just print out the paper and mail it in? I know ZERO about India's tax laws.
  17. Re: headphones don't work with a external monitor

    PulseAudio wants the last connected audio device to be used. Try unplugging the headphones, AFTER the monitor is connected, then reconnect them.

    Also, use pavucontrol to disable the monitor...

    Re: ubuntu firewall ?

    For typical home users, it is sufficient.
    There are exceptions for systems running network services. If you didn't specifically setup up a service, don't worry.

    Re: How to modify the router MAC address?

    That is 100% a router question and depends on the router firmware. Nobody here can answer, assuming it is possible. That change can only happen inside the router.

    The manpage for that command says:

    Re: External USB drive becoming read only.

    Thanks kurt18947, m-disc is it. The m-disc drives do work with normal DVDs and blurays too, I understand, so they aren't 1-trick tools.
  23. [ubuntu] Re: how do you mount or to open up ddrescue .img

    Thanks for the clarity. I'll ignore sda.

    If you backed up the whole drive, not just the partitions that you want, you'll need to use some math or kpartx to figure out where the partition(s) are...
