    Re: can't connct /dev/ttyUSB0

    Then it seems that the usbserial driver does not recognise the scanner, I suggest you look up the make of the scanner to find out what driver, if any, is available for Linux.

    Re: can't connct /dev/ttyUSB0

    If no error message then the module has been (or was) already installed. Unplug and re-plug the scanner.
    It is entirely possible that the scanner is not recognised by the standard usbserial driver -...

    Re: Mount point ?

    If I understand right, then the mount point (condition b) is owned by you, but the filesystem on the drive itself (seen when mounted in state a) is owned by root.
    I don't see a problem there,...

  9. [ubuntu] Re: no response on formatting hd with mkxf.xfs ubuntu 20.04

    16TB is quite big. I don't know XFS, but is it possible that mkfs.xfs was still busy writing to the disk? "iostat -x 2" should show you if the disk is being actively used. Not being killable might...

  13. Re: Locked-Down SFTP access to mounted WinServer sub-folder

    OK, here's an outline:
    I assume you can mount the server directory in Ubuntu using CIFS. I can't help you with that, never done it.
    I assume it is mounted at /media/<WIN_SERVER_NAME> and has...

  18. [SOLVED] Re: grep wont search multiple patterns sepperated by a newline

    Grep normally works on single lines. You will never find a \n with grep because it splits the input into lines before searching. Unless you use -z to convert \n to null.

    Last time I installed Xubuntu, the installer wouldn't quite fit on a 2G stick. You need 4G these days. I bought a handful of 64G sticks - they should last for a while.
