    [ubuntu] Re: script help

    Worked for me. I use xterms.
    But I really need to set the font to a smaller size for that output to fit on one screen without wrapping.

    Re: Change owner of mounted drive

    ntfs or other non-linux file systems only support ownership control through mount options.

    I think you have a good grasp. You didn't mention checking the 'id' command for each userid involved. If there's only 1 user and they are all Linux systems, then it should just work. But if you have...

    Re: NAS Desktop Shortcut

    Sorry, I don't know anything about XFCE and very little about Samba.

    I use autofs with USB devices, so the lack of u-mount is a problem. Also, it is nice to not worry about rebooting the NFS server system when that is necessary. Locking up 10 NFS client machines can...

    Re: NAS Desktop Shortcut

    gnome3 doesn't allow this.
    Other DEs do. Which do ou run?

    Also, "NAS" could, mean nfs or cifs. Which do you use? NFS looks like a local directory, so a normal symbolic link works.

    If you search for "ubuntu nfs" you'll find a how-to guide, probably at help.ubuntu.com.
    Because that guide has to address almost every possible situation, it is much, much, longer than necessary.

    Be very careful using 3TB/5TB/6TB HDDs. Those "odd" sizes have a less than great history of higher failures.
    4TB, 8TB and larger seem to all have much better reliability.
