    [ubuntu] Re: Need guidance about file compression

    Some people hate this kind of answer:
    $ man gzip

    That would actually tell you everything.

    You could also type man gzip in a web browser. :)

    W0t? You don’t keep a backup of /dev/random? ;)
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 21.04. How do I check an rsync backup set?

    Rsync copies files. It ensures that a file was copied correctly using a CRC. That is all it does.

    If you want to check a file, go there with a file browser and open it.

    It depends on who you are and where you work. If you are Joe Sixpack or Pete The Plumber, then you don’t have much to worry about.

    [ubuntu] Re: Desktop locks

    Well, then you need a lot more swap space for Firefox, or a lot more RAM, or both.

    Re: sane.d scanner and pdf size

    Howdy,
    You can resample and resize PDFs with Imagemagick “convert”. For example change it to 300 dpi and BW for small file size. Some googling for examples with convert will get you going.

    [SOLVED] Re: Transfer all data from hard disk

    I would use rsync, since it does proper error detection and correction. In a large set of data, you may get one or two errors with ordinary cp and rsync will prevent that.

    If you boot off the install media and let it run (without installing again!), what happens? You could also try a completely different distribution such as Fedora or Arch Linux. Each distro tests with...

    Re: Where to put new program

    Note that the directories /usr/local and /opt are customarily used for user installed programs and these directories will not be messed up by a system update.
  14. Re: Running two commands at the same time in bash script

    There is also more complex job control possible with the batch command, which has subcommands like bg, fg, jobs, kill etc.

    Btw Windows nowadays has SSH available.
  16. Re: What Linux OS is purpose built for security?

    Btw when I need to be paranoid about security, I use OpenBSD.
  17. [xubuntu] Re: Firefox very slow trough VNC connection

    Yes. Don’t use VNC. Learn to use SSH instead.

    Re: can't boot after download

    If you are very new to Linux, find a local Linux user group and go to a meeting to find someone that can fix it for you.

    In general, an update has to be earned. There has to be a good reason to...
  19. Re: What Linux OS is purpose built for security?

    Any Linux distribution will suffice for that use case. I suggest that you install Linux, then relax and enjoy the system. You will gradually learn why you suddenly don’t have issues with viruses...

    [kubuntu] Re: Synology NAS problem & question

    Try the IP address instead of the hostname. For example:
    https://192.168.0.1:5000

    Connect with Windows, then find the IP address by looking on your router DHCP status, or snoop it with tcpdump...

    Re: VNC access until reboot

    Hmm, VNC is mostly a Windows thing. With UNIX computers (Linux/Mac/BSD) SSH generally is much easier to get going and is secure and more powerful.

  24. [ubuntu_studio] Re: Easy file transfer between Win 10 and Studio 21.04 - how ?

    BTW, FTP is not a bad protocol, you just need to use it with care.
  25. [ubuntu_studio] Re: Easy file transfer between Win 10 and Studio 21.04 - how ?

    The Windows file browser supports Anonymous FTP, so that is always the easiest way to do file transfers with other machines, since you don’t have to install anything on the Windows side of the wire.
