  1. Re: what do I need to do to run windows software and steam/EA games on ubuntu desktop

    So... why not dual-boot then? Do your serious work (e.g. banking, writing mails, surfing the web, etc.) on Linux so Microsoft won't track you. But keep a Windows 10 partition for gaming, and just for...
  2. Re: what do I need to do to run windows software and steam/EA games on ubuntu desktop

    Same here. Especially at home. But at work? I sometimes don't have this choice and have to use the OS that an employer mandates. And in such a setting WSL has proven very useful for me.

  4. [SOLVED] Re: Any routers that accept USB HDs formatted in ext4?

    FTP protocol is NOT encrypted. Anyone in that same network (tech-savvy kids? Neighbours with access to your WLAN? etc.) can read the password in clear text each time you login. Too bad if you used...
  5. Re: what do I need to do to run windows software and steam/EA games on ubuntu desktop

    It got a lot better. I now prefer WSL over CygWin or a Linux VM (e.g. VirtualBox, VMware, Hyper-V ...) if I have to work with Windows (e.g. company setting + mandated by employer). So if I can't get...
  6. Re: what do I need to do to run windows software and steam/EA games on ubuntu desktop

    You can still experiment with Linux e.g. by installing Ubuntu into WSL. If your Windows version allows it, that is. That way you'd be able to keep Windows 10 as a desktop but a functional Linux...
  7. Re: what do I need to do to run windows software and steam/EA games on ubuntu desktop

    There's a Linux version of "Steam" and in its latest releases it offers the possibility to play Windows games too. But it needs to be enabled.

  12. [ubuntu] Re: find history of changes done in ubuntu system files

    Depends on how the system was setup. E.g. Ubuntu with ZFS as filesystem offers that functionality out of the box, as everytime you install something a snapshot will be taken. And you can browse those...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Installing ubuntu 20 in a Desktop with no VGA port

    This might be a problem with your TV, e.g. it does not like the resolution and frequency the PC has switched into. Some TV's only want 1920x1080 at exactly 60 Hz when a PC is attached to it. Try any...

    I own a similar PC: Acer Aspire XC-605. It also has 1 x HDMI port. And Ubuntu works tip top here. You said you have 2 x HDMI ports? Did you try changing ports, e.g. connecting the HDMI cable into...

    Live sessions (e.g. Ubuntu CD or USB stick that you used to install the OS) would work too. And there's also "CloneZilla Live":

  20. [SOLVED] Re: VirtualBox unusable graphics when run over ssh -X

    You can get more speed out of "ssh -X" if you play with the parameters and apply some tweaks. I myself use this command sequence a lot:

  22. [SOLVED] Re: umask, file copy, file creation, directory creation - I'm confused, please help

    Does that even matter? Because if your $HOME directory /home/yourusername has its permissions set to "rwx --- ---" (aka "chmod 700") then it does not matter what permissions a file inside that...
