  1. [lubuntu] Re: Internal drive partitions listed as removable

    +1 on swap --> none for the mount point and
    +1 for the last '2' being a '0' for both swap AND the EFI partition. The meaning of those numbers is spelled out in the fstab manpage, BTW.

    I don't...
  2. [kubuntu] Re: fstab no longer mounting nfs shares at boot

    I played with x-systemd.automount and it seemed to work, but it never umounted the mount, which bothered me. When I take a laptop off the home network, I'd like not to worry whether it had NFS...

    Turtle vs hare question. Pick whichever you prefer.
  4. [lubuntu] Re: Internal drive partitions listed as removable

    There is a setting in the fstab for each mount that can make them not show up in any GVFS-type GUI program. I don't know if Qt supports that or not. It would start with x- ..... in the fstab. Need...

    Re: Using 10.04 now?

    There must be at least 20 remote root attacks against 10.04 today. These are well-known and scanned constantly on the internet.

    Feel free to use any OS you like on a non-networked system or on a...
  6. Re: recommended install image for Pinebook Pro?

    That's specialized HW. Best to stick with distros you find on their support website.
    Other Pine64 OSes weren't generic either. Only expect distros created for the platform to make use of the...
  7. Re: Is is possible to restart GlobalProtect GUI via CLI?

    For commercial products, best to ask for help through their support channels.
    Most of the people in these forums won't have much direct experience with commercial programs. My old job forced only...

    Testing. Vast testing. Less isn't sufficient on low RAM systems. More is wasted on high RAM systems. Specialized workloads can require specific changed. That size is for normal people doing normal...
  10. Re: how does remote desktop give improved performance?

    LXDE is dead, isn't it? They switched to LXQt. A DE is 100% optional. Can just run a window manager, WM. Openbox is minimal, but behaves in a way Windows users won't hate. Or make the jump to i3...

    Re: Frequent system freezes

    Do you really use XDMCP? I haven't seen that in over 20 yrs.
    I don't use systemd-resolved. It was causing problems so I purged it along with resolvconf and manually setup the /etc/resolv.conf files...

  13. [SOLVED] Re: [Question] Help Please. Kubuntu 20.04 NO GUI - Boot stuck at "Finished update UTM

    Sounds like the GPU is failing or just needs to be reseated or has a bad power connection. A flaky PSU can cause this type of behavior.

    Re: Help enabling 2nd monitor in xorg config

    The only reason that I'd prefer /etc/X11/... over /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ is because I backup everything in /etc/, but I backup NOTHING /usr/share/.
    Functionally, it wouldn't matter.
  15. Re: how does remote desktop give improved performance?

    "Fallback" might be a useful keyword when searching. as in fallback mode.

    If you want to run the command when a new file is copied over somewhere specific, use inotify.

  24. [kubuntu] Re: fstab no longer mounting nfs shares at boot

    There's only 2 tricks to autofs.

    The auto.master controls the top level directory for each sub-file which holds the configs.

    Use an alias. Don't rename programs unless you want to break your system. Badly.

    Or perhaps you should rename all the programs you want. Then this learning will be first hand and have greater...
