    [ubuntu] Re: Dell inspiron 2800 still works

    I've settled on XFCE lately. Since I'm pxe booting all but one machine in my house it's nice and light for the pxe environment, yet full and complete as well. Also can be very traditional which saves...

    Re: WoL not working

    When I was first setting up WoL on my lan a few of my machines were about the dumbest thing ever. They had an option to enable wake on lan in the bios. But that alone didn't do it. I had to enable a...

    [xubuntu] Re: can't run samba server

    I don't know anything about the service command.

  18. Re: how would ubuntu be like in two, five and ten years from now?

    I think that very little will change. I'm not a fan of the general Ubuntu color scheme but it will probably be mostly the same. Systemd will still be here, and people will probably still complain...

  22. [SOLVED] Re: Unable to configure file sharing - 20.04

    Just easier. Samba is more server oriented really, and mainly for sharing to Window's machines. Not that it's wrong of course. But an sftp is simpler and more direct.
  23. [ubuntu] Re: How to install Samba GUI in Ubuntu 20.04

    I don't mean to be harsh but in the time it may take you to find a working useful gui for something like that, you could google and configure the smb.conf file directly in about 2-3 minutes. 10 tops...
