STUCK with ACL and unreadable files

Once upon a time I tried setting privileges using ACL. It did work as intended. Latter I revoked the privileges running setfacl -bn * . Life went on. Three days ago I tried to install a software package I had in that particular directory I had set the ACL privileges to. Than I found out no matter wh...

Re: Cursor does not show when Installing Mint 20 Cinnamon on KVM

Thank you all.

What I found out was that it works if I change video from QXL to virtio.
This is only necessary with cinnamon. QXL works fine both with MATE and XFCE.

Thank you all for your hints.

Cursor does not show when Installing Mint 20 Cinnamon on KVM

I am trying to install Mint 20 Cinnamon on KVM. The host is also a Mint 20 Cinnamon. Host works fine. I have also installed Mint 20 MATE and XFCE on KVM. Both work fine. But when I try to install Mint 20 Cinnamon on KVM, the cursor does no show up, so I have no way do proceed. I've tried different o...

Teach me how to enable qname minimisation

I have been using dnscrypt-proxy and protonvpn on Mint 19.3. They both seem to be working fine (some times I have some doubts about DNS and IP leaking...). Problem is, I can't make qname minimisation to work. When I run one of the commands bellow, I get the answer displayed: $ a.b.qnamemin-test.inte...

Re: Can I use external boot and OTP with Luks in Mint?

Another option for encrypting boot is this tutorial by linux22 . Never used myself (I don't even use system encryption, though I do use Veracrypt for some files), so I can't vouch for it. I merely point it out. Thank you. I'll track it down (a lot of things to read and learn). I'll have this thread...

Re: Can I use external boot and OTP with Luks in Mint?

The risk (rare) I am trying to avert is having someone grabbing my notebook, injecting a new boot piece of code onto the boot partition and put the machine back. That would be a very skilled person. Not the average "I just downloaded pentest software and now I'm a 1337 h4x0r" laptop snatching hoodl...

Re: Can I use external boot and OTP with Luks in Mint?

The installer will set up, if you select disk encryption, an encryption LUKS partition with LVM and encrypted swap. It will not encrypt the boot partition. You can also encrypt the boot partition, at least Arch Linux wiki has information on that though I don't immediately know how to apply it to Li...

[SOLVED] Can I use external boot and OTP with Luks in Mint?

I will not do a clean install of Mint 19.3 so I thought it could be a good occasion to have better security. As I see it, security could be stongrer if I could encrypt the whole drive and boot from a pen-drive. It would be still stronger if during boot I had do provide a OTP. If this possible out of...

I have just solved the problem with a radical measure: I went to synaptics and unsintalled everything the contained "cups" somewhere in the package name.
