    Re: Transmission permission denied

    drwxrwx--- without showing the owner and group isn't too useful.
  2. [ubuntu] Re: how to start recovery mode for Ubuntu Server 18.04.3 LTS when connecting through

    You need console access to the VM. Depending on the hypervisor, that shouldn't be hard. The console access is provided from the hostOS via virsh or using a gui like virt-manager if you use KVM. ...

    [SOLVED] Re: built-in microphone not working

    I'm not an expert, but ... a monitor isn't a microphone.

    name: <alsa_input.usb-046d_HD_Pro_Webcam_C920_76B4D93F-02.analog-stereo.2>

    Re: Transmission permission denied

    What userid does the service run under?
    What are the permissions for the directories where files are to be stored? ls -l
    Are the mounts read-only? Lots of ways to check that. I'd probably use...

    Re: Transmission permission denied

    Exactly, how did you start the transmission service? Which userid?

    Running some programs with sudo/root will create files in unexpected places and prevent a normal userid from running those tools...

    Re: Transmission permission denied

    Is it a snap package?

    $ snap list

    Snaps are usually constrained to only allow access to the userid's HOME. For something like Transmission, that's probably a good thing, just create a special...

    If it isn't locked in a safe, then that laptop is most definitely portable regardless of your specific use, perhaps. Portable means someone else can snag it and walk out. The same applies to USB...

  12. Re: No more connection (at all) and no more System Settings

    Both have drivers according to that output. That's good.

    I'd plug in the ethernet and see if that worked. Then I'd check the BIOS as CW says. Some laptops have physical switches that need to be...

    grep has 2 or more arguments. Something like

    [xubuntu] Re: USB 3 portable drive very slow

    Compression only makes sense if you are using a client/server model, not for directly attached storage.

    pacmd puts out too much information to be useful unless you are a pa dev. That's why I provided the specific command with a grep filter - to only see what was important.
