  1. Re: Sending / Receiving Files Wirelessly Between Ubuntu Computers?

    That's your first mention of Windows. Fine to use samba to share your Linux files to your Windows machines. But I would still recommend using ssh/sftp for LInux to Linux - it keeps all your file...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Problem getting chown to work for new ext4 partition

    I assume your username is peter-and-crazybear. So based on the lsblk output you posted, the command you need would be:

    sudo chown -R peter-and-crazybear:peter-and-crazybear...
  3. Re: Sending / Receiving Files Wirelessly Between Ubuntu Computers?

    I would recommend using sftp. Install openssh-server on the computers you want to connect to, then use your normal file manager as the client (probably nautilus, but as I'm on xubuntu I use its...
  4. Re: 20.04: Why no option to create a non-encrypted physical volume during installatio

    It's not offering an encrypted partition there at all. I think you get an option to encrypt later, but all you have here is a choice of different filesystems. ext4 would be the normal one to choose....
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Problem getting chown to work for new ext4 partition

    It should just be a question of using chown on the point where the partition is mounted (using sudo). Can you post the output of lsblk so we can see where that is. Also include the prompt and command...

    [SOLVED] Re: what are this commands doing ?

    It is worth using "set -x" when trying these things out to see what commands are actually doing. It prints a + in front of each command it actually executes. Here's a short example. The command pwd...
  7. Re: Prevent users from shutting down Ubuntu desktops

    I don't know if this would work, but perhaps rename /usr/sbin/shutdown and sym-link it to /usr/sbin/reboot instead?
    Of course, that depends on the button calling the executable which I don't know if...

    [SOLVED] Re: Newbie

    Welcome to the forums.

    You have that space all configured as a swap partition. You probably don't want that. First you need to stop using it as swap by opening a terminal and running the command:...

    [server] Re: /dev/loop is full???

    I think the loop mounts are files containing snap applications. They are formatted like disks (squahfs filesystem) and are only as large as the app they contain, hence 100% full.
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Connecting two computers with one ethernet cable - no router

    Out of interest, and because it may help others with the same problem, what was the fix? Doesn't matter if it's really mundane.
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Connecting two computers with one ethernet cable - no router

    I disagree with that. They are both on the same subnet, so they don't even need a router. They can just ARP each other.

    It may be a cabling issue. Use the command "ip address" to check the...
  12. Re: Large number of IP-addressed VLAN subinterfaces on Ubuntu

    If your tagged interface is 24.95.248.30/30, then it exists on a LAN with only 4 addresses. They are the only 4 (2 usable) that you can directly ping.

    Presumably, if your address is 24.95.248.30...
  13. Re: Large number of IP-addressed VLAN subinterfaces on Ubuntu

    First check your firewall to make sure it's not blocking pings. Temporarily disable it would nbe good.

    Strictly speaking, 24.95.248.29/31 is a subnet broadcast address. That might be the problem...

    Re: Looking for xtables-nft package

    Thanks for the reply, Doug S. I didn't go into compiling a kernel, I just looked at packages.

    On my current machine, I have already installed package nftables. I have not removed iptables though....

    [SOLVED] Re: sorting by IP address

    The number after the comma defines where the key ends and the default is to the end of the string. So that just -k 3 says sort using the 3rd segment to the end, -k 3,4 says use segments 3 and 4 as a...

    [SOLVED] Re: Remove Windows option

    I would be inclined to use gparted to re-format sda1 to ext4. Not necessarily mount it yet, but that should stop it looking like windows any more.
    Then run "sudo update-grub" to update the grub...

    Re: Port checking software?

    Be clear what you mean here.
    As far as the OS is concerned, there are two possible port states:
    * Open : There is an application listening on that port for incoming connections
    * Closed : No...

    Re: Ubuntu and Wine - where is it?

    You only see a wine window when it's running a windows application.
    You can launch windows apps with a command line like "wine notepad". I think you can probably right-click a windows program in a...
  25. [ubuntu] Re: How to use my own manually installed Python instead of the default one from repo?

    You might be able to use apt to reinstall the package default version. If that fails then all I can think of is to reinstall. As TheFu says, use pyenv or virtualenv when using other python versions -...
