Re: Gigabyte GA-F2A68HM-HD2 motherboard

Next job is getting the USB dongle wifi working. Thanks You stand a better chance by updating the Kernel, not guaranteed, but a better one. The Kernels contain your system drivers, they may have been added since 18.1 was released. As a general rule you're going to have a better experience by runnin...

Re: Dual booting Win 10 and Linuxmint 18.? 64 bit on laptop

You can point the linux back up tool to personal files/folders stored on your windows drive.. it'll just make a tar file ( zip ). Probably a better way would be to just 'zip' the folders and place them on your back up drive. If you're transferring files using Linux from your windows partition then y...

Re: TimShift and external drives

Yeah you would need to format in ext4. A partition of around 60GB for about 5 snapshots would be enough. You can schedule how often in makes one, day, week, hour etc but, it doesn't appear, when it actually runs the process. Maybe 10 mins after first boot? dunno. So the 'problem' is the drive needs ...

Re: File permissions again again

Sounds like its apples fault. HFS+ is the files system used on many Apple Macintosh computers by Mac OS. You can mount this filesystem in Ubuntu with read only access by default. If you need read/write access then you have to disable journaling with OS X before you can continue. https://help.ubuntu....

Re: STILL need Help with fstab please.

I don't see anywhere mentioned, whether your home is encrypted? If not, then nevermind... If your home is encrypted, you either have to set your mount point somewhere else (/mnt perhaps) in fstab, or else make a startup script that runs when your user logs in.

Re: STILL need Help with fstab please.

Correct, yes. /etc/rc.local runs with root-privilege just before the kernel switches to multi-user mode. These days it's a service provided by systemd, so it's possible you have to switch that service on too. Although I have never had to do that, I have never had to fight with systemd-Ubuntu, eithe...
