[Solved] Where does Caja store saved SSH key passphrase ?

As in the subject. Ages ago I selected 'Remember forever' when I first logged on to another system using the SSH key. Recently the passphrase has changed, but for the life of me I cannot find where I can update or delete the saved passphrase in Caja ...

Or does 'forever' literally mean 'forever' ?

Sound via HDMI too fast when one of the screens is disabled

I have 3 screens plugged in permanently to Radeon R7 260X card: 2 identical monitors via DVI-HDMI and a TV via HDMI-HDMI. I use radeon driver and xrandr to control output. Most of the time I use only the 2 monitors, and disable TV using xrandr. The trouble is that when TV is disabled, the audio via ...

Re: Change of Apache Document root not worling

You need to make sure permissions of your /home/par/www are the same as /var/www (I can't remember what they are, off top of my head).

Not sure if and why would it be good practice to create a different document root, definitely not in your home folder. I'd strongly recommend to leave it default.

Re: Is it possible to host a server with Mint?

What kind of server ?

There is no server edition and it may not be the best choice for some configurations, but in short yes, you can run anything that runs on Linux.

Blacklisting is not permanent. It's just preventing a driver to load at boot. You can then load / unload the driver at will, thus enabling / disabling the device.

I never said it does, you hadn't mentioned desktop earlier. Something does make a difference though, my Mate 17 Live USB, as well as OS installed from it, don't have setuid set.

I don't think anyone changed it. Even Live Mint does not have setuid on ping. I might be wrong, but I think I always used it with sudo.

Re: Forcibly close 1 Firefox window without killing process.

It's disheartening to see Mint users with more Linux knowledge and experience than i can hope to garner even through another decade of studying it, brazenly choosing denial over admitting that they do not know how to forcibly close one browser window without closing all other open windows and tabs ...

Re: Forcibly close 1 Firefox window without killing process.

Never had that either, but for stubborn X apps I use xkill. It's part of x11-utils package.

Re: SSD difference with Linux?

I find a perfectly adequate set up is just adding relatime and discard mount options in /etc/fstab. In practice this is all you need as far as I know. I just mention this for people who may find that guide onerous. I'm with you on that one. In fact, I don't add discard either as Mint by default has...

Re: File corruption when copying to FAT32 flash drive

I think the thread has deviated off topic somewhat. I've been using linux for over 10 years and never had to use rsync and/or checksums to copy data to USB. If it's some critical data, fair enough, but copying a movie should not require this sort of complexity.

Re: How do I change window border colors?

That looks like a theme mod. Basically the root account is using slightly modified version of the theme used by user. The root's theme should be located under /root/.themes, so you would need to do some manual tweaking there.

Is the solid state drive technology any different from the rotating disk technology (SATA) which would affect installation of Linux? Do I have to do any settings? No and no.
