Re: gksu removed from the repo's of Ubuntu 18.04

I never understood why some people seemed to think the ONLY problem this caused was editing configuration files (which is easy enough to get around).

Re: gksu removed from the repo's of Ubuntu 18.04

This issue is going to get far less attention now that Ubuntu changed how sudo works. sudo no longer keeps the home environment of the user that invokes it. It changes it to root like all the other branches of Linux. Pray tell in what version? I am running Linux Mint Mate 19.2 $ echo $HOME /home/le...

[2] What is the relationship between $LOGNAME and the user:lewis. Only $LOGNAME can get to the "private" folder so unless the two are the same it's irrelevant what the permissions on "private" happen to be. They are the same ....

The thing I really hate about setting up a new Linux Machine is getting SAMBA to work. I just set a new machine to serve as repository for software, video and backups. To be fair Linux Mint 19.2 (mate) does a work better than some previous interactions ( no max protocol patch needed ). It has a seco...

Re: SQLITE3 on Linux crippled

OK ... at least part of the problem is the mount command. In order to have read/write rights to the share from the desktop the command must include additional options: sudo mount -o username=[myname],password=[mypassword],uid=[myname],gid=[myname] -t cifs //192.168.0.120/kwpvr /mnt/kwpvr Now sqlite ...

OK ... this is going to be a really dumb question about the at command. When I search for linux and schedule all I find are references to cron.

I do not think I could enable IDE mode for the NVMe drive even if I wanted to. Well maybe if I enabled Legacy support but I have not done that. This does have Intel RST ( Rapid Storage Technology ) built into the BIOS and thus far I have seen no way to completely disable it. I have tried both secure...
