  1. [ubuntu_mate] Re: Is there a way to make Caja the default GUI ftp client?

    Thanks, that's a good workaround if the ftp handler can't be specified. Might be a moot point though since newer versions of Ubuntu seem to work OK with DD-WRT's Samba and I'll probably upgrade to...
  2. Re: Pleasee Help server crashed and i can not rebooy

    Can you access the server's filesystem from the recovery disk? Does the hardware pass diagnostics? I'm not sure what was supposed to be pasted from the recovery disk but there does not appear to be...
  3. [ubuntu_mate] Is there a way to make Caja the default GUI ftp client?

    This is on Ubuntu Mate 16.04, and the question is precipitated by a workaround to another problem.

    Recently I installed a newer router (Asus RT-AC66U_B1) to replace my aging Asus RT-N16. The older...

    Re: Voice assist driving me crazy!

    Well I guess not many people have run into this problem. For what it's worth I came up with a workaround - in the "Applications" tab of Sound Preferences, mute eSpeak and speech-dispatcher. This...

    [lubuntu] LXterminal loses lines with tabs

    This is with Lubuntu 18.04.1...

    An annoyance with LXterminal is that it loses a couple of lines every time you switch into tabbed mode. So if you start out with 24 lines, you'll have 22 when you...
  9. Re: Backing up with tar to USB Stick - Says I am out of space - but I am not

    The USB stick is probably formatted FAT32, which allows a maximum file size of 4GB. If you try to create a larger file than that you will get an "out of space" error. If you need large file support...

    [ubuntu] Re: Memtest Fails

  12. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 16.04 crashes with 4.4.0-108 kernel

    So it seems likely more CPU related than a problem with video. Another small data point, I have an old laptop with AMD "Turion II X2" CPU running Xubuntu 14.04. I just installed the Xenial hardware...

    This is on Ubuntu Mate 16.04, running Teamviewer 11 for Linux. (I believe this is basically the Windows Teamviewer program packaged with its own customized version of wine to run.) Video is Intel.
