    [ubuntu] Re: Difference in LAN paths

    NFS.
    Probably want to use autofs to mount only when requested. Then the storage can be treated like local storage.

    sshfs is another option, but much slower because ssh encryption.

    [lxqt] Re: Trouble with XRDP on Lubuntu 20.04 (LXQt)

    There are huge security implications between what xrdp does and what x2go does. On the same LAN, it probably doesn't matter. Over the internet, there is a world of difference. No way should anyone...

  10. [kubuntu] Re: Is it possible to view shortcuts only in some activities?

    I doubt the manpage for ln will be too useful. ln -s is the way to create symlinks.

    .desktop files are completely different. I don't use those. Sorry.
  11. [kubuntu] Re: Is it possible to view shortcuts only in some activities?

    What is a shortcut? Do you mean a symbolic link or something else?
    Symlinks are file system objects. There's a wkipedia article if more info is needed.
