  1. [lubuntu] Does flatpak automatically update its packages?

    I've learning to use snaps and flatpak.

    Snaps are easy as can be, even easier than PPAs, and its manual is helpful. Flatpak… not so much. However, some packages (e.g. OpenShot) are available on...

    Re: Thanks, Everyone!

    Yes, I love this forum.

    Some great quality answers are available in Ask Ubuntu, but this forum is always my first call.
  4. [all variants] Re: Is it possible to protect an app with a short code, e.g. a PIN?

    Thank you, EuclideanCoffee and TheFu. I'm not protecting any state secrets or dodgy activity here :) Just a normal password manager.

    I was hoping for something quite simple, but it looks like it...
  5. [all variants] Is it possible to protect an app with a short code, e.g. a PIN?

    Is it possible to protect an app with a short code, e.g. a PIN, so that it won't open until the code is entered?

    I have a password manager (KeepassXC) that, once unlocked, sits in my taskbar. To...
  6. [ubuntu_mate] Re: So easy to break users password from recovery

    The very best way to avoid this mess is to encrypt your entire disk with LUKS.
    That way, no one can get in (not even recovery mode) until the disk is unlocked.

    Unfortunately…

    Canonical has not...
  7. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    I didn't get this problem during my tests, so I can't comment on what's happening with you. Unless there is a clash between VeraCrypt and Grub? I've never used VeraCrypt for an operating system, so I...
  8. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    That's interesting. Default Ubuntu updates automatically remove older kernels, so it should have been dealt with.
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Modify XML syntax higlighting file sh to deal with bash in gedit, pluma, etc.

    That's fantastic, thank you! I shall make a note of that link in case of future problems.
  10. [SOLVED] Modify XML syntax higlighting file sh to deal with bash in gedit, pluma, etc.

    I wonder if you could help me with something that has frustrated me for some time.

    There are many XML files for syntax highlighting for use with editors, e.g. gedit and pluma, in the shared area:...
  11. [all variants] Re: Full encryption for Ubuntu: Why isn't this taken seriously?

    @TheFu, thank you for those viewpoints. You make a lot of sense particularly in your last point.

    Absolutely, yes. The problem is that for your "average" user, who won't understand the problems and...
  12. [all variants] Full encryption for Ubuntu: Why isn't this taken seriously?

    Warming: Contentious issue

    I have come back to this issue again and again, and I am frankly bewildered and disconcerted as to why Canonical isn't taking the issue of full encryption for an Ubuntu...
  13. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    Thanks for posting the solution. How large is your /boot partition? Ideally, it should be at least 500Mb (½Gb).
  14. [SOLVED] Re: What's causing my private key to fail with SSH?

    Which host do you use, may I ask?
  15. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    @metal450 — Thank you for this! I've included your page in the notes. If only Canonical took encryption seriously, it would save all this hassle!
  16. [SOLVED] Re: What's causing my private key to fail with SSH?

    @TheFu, thank you for the time you've given.

    It turns out that there must have been a problem with GoDaddy after all, because — hallelujah — it's working today!

    So, the problem didn't lie on my...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: What's causing my private key to fail with SSH?

    Thank you, @TheFu. Unfortunately, this hasn't solved the problem.

    Yesterday, I had created keys with a password, so that I could tell whether or not SSH was even trying to access the key. When I...
  18. [SOLVED] What's causing my private key to fail with SSH?

    Background

    I access SSH in my GoDaddy's account using ssh and a public-private key pair. This has been working flawlessly for years. A few days ago, this stopped working (nothing changed on my...

    Yet another alternative, which looks promising. If you try it, please report back on this alternative how-to by Tj. I have also added this to the first post.
  20. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    Jernej Jakob has created instructions to convert an unencrypted installation to an encrypted one. I have not tested it, but Jernej says that it works on Ubuntu. I have amended the first post to...
  21. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    For some reason, Ubuntu Forums frequently fails to notify me of new posts, so sorry that I'm responding only now.

    I am feeling somewhat disillusioned, because every time that this issue is raised...
  22. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    Nice idea, but I wouldn't know how to do that. Also, as Canonical is a private company based in the UK, they can just ignore petitions, and it's not possible to put shareholder pressure on them.

  24. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    I don't know. I created this guide after frustration with the lack of progress from Canonical, by following the advice of several internet-based sources. I'm not really a technical person, so much of...
  25. [all variants] Re: Manual Full System Encryption has been updated and simplified

    @elgo2 — First, which version of Ubuntu are you using? This system has been tested on 18.04 and I don't know if it will work on later versions (it should, but I can't guarantee that).

    Second, have...
