  1. Re: Monitor resolution changing randomly, xrandr failed

    xrandr is for X11 only, not Wayland. Before you login, be certain to choose xorg.
    I don't know how Wayland works.

    Also, I don't have an igp on my Ryzen now, but should by the end of the day...

    Re: Samba shared folder help

    The way to have different permissions in Samba is to have different shares for the different types of access rights.

    [server] Re: Samba configuration help

    I almost always specify these settings for each share stanza:

    browseable = yes
    guest ok = no
    writable = yes
    create mask = 0644
    directory mask = 0755
    I might make the masks a little...

    Re: Displays not working after moving computer

    If it is brand new, then take it back to the store for replacement. Tell them the fan isn't spinning. If it is just "brand new" to you - used - perhaps it is still under manufacturer's warranty?...

    [ubuntu] Re: Can't restore my backup using deja dup

    50% of Unix is about understanding permissions. Your userid cannot restore files that aren't owned by your userid. So, you need to use a userid (or elevate privileges) to an account that can do...

    Re: Reading and writing to a virtual file?

    Uh ... use a named pipe. There are "writer" processes and 1 "reader". This has been part of Unix since the 1970s. Very easy to use.
    In a CLI terminal, using ls -F will show these special files as...

    Seems your GPU fan is out. Fix that or buy a new GPU.
    Would be bad to let it overheat, right?

    Why not use the [homes] special stanza to provide access by username for each user's HOME directory?

    [ubuntu] Re: Install Ubuntu over Ubuntu game pack

    Most Linux installers only work from a boot from the install disk, so there isn't a way to force install from a different release (whatever Ubuntu game pack is?). I've never heard of Ubuntu game...

    Re: Displays not working after moving computer

    Because you mention moving, I'd first think it was something physical as the root issue.
    Reconnect all the cables, check the power cable inside the case from the PSU to the GPU. Reseat the GPU in...
  11. Re: Apache server does not start after Ubuntu upgrade from 21.04 to 21.10

    Did you look at line 3?

    Did you read the error? "No such file or directory" /usr/lib/apache2/modules/libphp7.4.so

    So, the file the code wants is missing. It appears to be related to a specific...

    Instead of rebooting, why not just restart the network subsystem? That would take 5 seconds.
