    Re: only show login after bootup

    I'd tape a little sign over the monitor saying not to worry, don't touch or just turn the monitor off. I've actually done this a few places.

    Have you looked at grub options to show a splash screen...

    Re: only show login after bootup

    If you haven't hit ESC, then no messages should display, rather a splash screen should show up. If messages are showing at boot, I'd quickly look for failures in the system logs. Hardware failures...

    [server] Re: VMware Horizons Alternative in Ubuntu

    We don't use VMware stuff since 2011-ish.

    For remote desktops, x2go is pretty easy. Users can connect to the same VM and share files if you set it up that way. Probably better NOT to use KDE,...
  6. Re: [Ubuntu Budgie] Unable to share application window to apps (google meet, discord)

    Wayland or X11 as the display server? Check before you login.

    Previously Wayland had issues with screen captures. Don't know whether that is still an issue or not.

    i don't use any of those...

    Re: Partition HD for Ubuntu

  8. [ubuntu] Re: Kodi on Raspberry Pi 4 with Ubuntu server

    But you don't need another pi, just another micoSD card.

  9. Re: NVIDIA GPU stooped being detected: 20.04 Focal Fossa

    Boot from a "try ubuntu" flash drive and see if the hardware is seen.
    Normally, I'd say to re-seat the card. Pull it out and re-insert it into the slot. On a laptop, it is probably soldered in...

    Do you want different devices to be on different subnets? Reads as no.

    [ubuntu] Re: Struggling with Ubuntu headless server via VNC

    Or use x2go, which is a separate remote desktop tool that uses 100% virtual desktops, not tied to any hardware. X2go is based on the NX protocol which is 2-3x faster than VNC and uses ssh tunnels as...
  14. Re: Do security issues exist on 2nd-hand computer after Erase Disc install?

    That's a pretty huge list of possibilities. There are hundreds. But whether any of those are likely is a completely different question.

    Re: How to do this?

    gufw has settings like that. Don't know if it is automatic or not. My home and office subnets are fairly unique, so blocking anything not on those subnets would be standard stuff.

  19. Re: Cryptsetup: lvm not available after BIOS update

    The initrd needs to understand both mdcrypt+LUKS and LVM. Instructions from 2012 are pretty old. I didn't think it was possible to setup a dualboot system with encryption.

    You need console access to the VM. Depending on the hypervisor, that shouldn't be hard. The console access is provided from the hostOS via virsh or using a gui like virt-manager if you use KVM. ...
