  1. Re: Firefox won't run in 21.10 under tigervnc-server

    Is your 21.10 using Wayland or X11?

    Going beyond what I actually know ....

    Looks like Wayland users may have to use WayVNC - or am I misreading...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Mounting NFS server with "Files" application (getting "mount point does not exist

    You are correct, of course. I was trying to point out the difference in computer-to-computer authentication vs user-to-computer authentication. There is not user-specific authentication to access...

    Re: Cannot create flash drive?!

    I don't use Windows, so no, I don't have these problems. I used 'cp' to create a 21.10 flash drive. Worked fine. I'd think any Unix-based OS could do the same with a non-corrupt ISO.

    Mounting CIFS or NFS storage underneath a HOME directory is asking for problems. Mount the storage elsewhere, then use a symbolic link to make access from HOME easier. Just a few weeks ago, someone...
  5. Re: What is the lightest .txt editor (what is a clone of windows notepad)

    There is only 1 editor for all platforms. vi/vim.
    Don't bother with any others. Vim is infinitely extensible and 1000x more efficient than any others. I've probably seen over 100 different...

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Mounting NFS server with "Files" application (getting "mount point does not exist

    NFS is a server-to-server protocol. Trying to use it as a user-to-server protocol will end in failure.
    Typcially, NFS mounts are handled in the /etc/fstab file or using something like autofs (you...

    Most Linux distros, including Ubuntu, don't force users to to go out into the internet to hunt down software. Use the "package manager" - what name that is on your ubuntu is dependent on the DE...

  10. Re: Firefox won't run in 21.10 under tigervnc-server

    Did you try to disable the default firefox setting that uses direct GPU access?

    When I try to run firefox remotely using X11, I get this:

  11. Re: I tried installing a Virtual Machine via Qemu/KVM and I keep getting errors

    Attempting to get GPU passthru working is not a "beginner level" task. Perhaps 1 in 100 people using virtualization attempt this and I'm guessing over 80% fail.
    If it does work, there will be...

    [ubuntu] Re: How large a /boot recommended for 21.10?

    What files are actually in /boot/? Have any old kernels been abandoned there? Not removed?
    Removed and purged aren't the same to the package manager. It could be that the system has 4 kernels...

    I suspect the OP doesn't like the idea of having **any** wasted space just because partitions can never really become full, so the more partitions, the greater the hassle.

    [ubuntu] Re: How large a /boot recommended for 21.10?

    There are different needs for different system setups.

    /boot/efi is recommended to be 500MB by some respected people. I've never used more than 20MB, so it seems like 10x too much. The more you...
