    [ubuntu] Re: Installing Ubuntu on HP Omen Desktop

    According to that list there must be a Microsoft Windows 10 environment on that SSD. You are sure you want to completely destroy that Windows 10 installation and overwrite it with Ubuntu?

    OK, boot...
  3. Re: How to access repository for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

    You're basically begging to be hacked at this point.
  4. [ubuntu] Re: chmod to give a remote server read priveleges to a client home directory

    Simple: There'd be a password prompt. Without knowing the exact username and the password on the remote system, that command will take you nowhere. And password-authentication is something that can...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Ownership of files in var being changed without my knowledge.

    No. It's standard procedure. A safety measure out of the box. Many processes, services and programs will drop all priviledges when they don't need them and then make use of "nobody".

    There used to...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: chmod to give a remote server read priveleges to a client home directory

    First of all: Which web sites exactly? Not all web sites that claim to be "authoritative" are really deserving of such a title.

    Second: It really depends on what exactly they were talking about....
  7. [ubuntu] Re: chmod to give a remote server read priveleges to a client home directory

    That command does NOT WORK LIKE THAT.

    You really need rsync.

    The core of the problem is that you are conflating local file permissions, local file ownership, local file access control lists...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: chmod to give a remote server read priveleges to a client home directory

    Just no, no, no. Messing with file permissions and file ownerships at your currently low level of knowledge is bound to destroy things. The safest approach for you would be to install...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    Same here. SSH for everything, zero need or use for anything else.
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to backup Mac APFS personal data to Ubuntu server ext4 HDD ?

    Please be more specific? What exactly fails? Because I use "rsync" between my MacBook (running macOS "Catalina") and my Linux server and it works tip top. "it seems to fail" is very vague. Show us...
  11. [ubuntu_studio] Re: To Update VBox B4/after Upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04 -or- Switch to KVM

    I did. And it worked pretty well. Advantage of getting your Virtualbox and the Extension pack from the Ubuntu 20.04 repositories: It also automagically works with all Kernel updates you receive,...

  13. [ubuntu_studio] Re: To Update VBox B4/after Upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04 -or- Switch to KVM

    virtualbox-ext-pack is there in the repositories as well. You install that and you get everything.
  14. [ubuntu_studio] Re: To Update VBox B4/after Upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04 -or- Switch to KVM

    You perhaps installed it manually via downloading the software directly from Oracle?

    There's one big difference between Ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04 when it comes to Virtualbox: Virtualbox 6.1.x is...

    Re: automated script that wipes the cache

    Why?

    You could create a custom shell script that will launch your browser of choice (e.g. Firefox, Chromium, Chrome, ... or whatever it is you use) and then goes and wipes everything by itself...
