Re: question on mounting point options for fat32 partition

Just follow this tutorial.
viewtopic.php?f=42&t=255060

P.S. FAT32 is generally a poor choice. Unless you have a specific requirement for using FAT32, prefer:
EXT4 if you only need to access the partition in Linux.
NTFS for Linux and Windows access.

Now you're being silly. Where does it say that it's being provided so the team can put out less stable/less tested updates? It doesn't.

Why's it too difficult to post in the correct forum to start with? The moderators have a lot to do without sending a load of personal messages to everyone who they have to pick up after.

Re: pet project (python 3) help?

It would be a useful exercise to remove the recursion from your main() and instead put in a proper loop. Loops are a skill you will definitely need to parse HTML.

Re: Anyone aware of Conky?

Looks like your brackets are wrong too - curly and round aren't interchangeable.

echo $(sensors | grep -A 0 'Core 0' | cut -c 17-22)CThis works to print CPU core 0 temp in a command window. Shouldn't be too difficult to paste into Conky.

It should read '-c' after 'cut' as it does in the command you're copying.

Re: Install .dmg

Linux doesn't run Mac software, any more than Windows or Mac run Linux software. If you want to look into MacOs emulators, go ahead, however compatibility with any given program is never guaranteed.

I designed my company logo in Inkscape and I would recommend that. It's vector based so everything is infinitely scaleable and adding bitmaps in is no problem.

Yeah native packages via apt/the software manager/synaptic would be my first choice unless I needed more up-to-date versions than the repository offered for some reason.

Re: Routers.

Also check your existing router doesn't provide an option to connect a USB hard disc. This provides a 'free' NAS that is sufficient for many people's needs.

Re: Problem burning CD!

Very odd. There shouldn't be anything extra you need to install. I would dump Brasero - it's trash.

is there a common denominator here? Are you perhaps using the same CD drive on all the machines, or maybe it's a problem with the discs?

Re: How to minimise Mint

Hi Fred,

I only mentioned Ubuntu because it's command-line compatible with Mint. No experience with Debian, but on Ubuntu it's a case of sudo apt-get install openssh-server

Re: Snap/Flatpak/Deb pkg advantages/disadvantages?

.debs don't receive updates - you have to find and install them manually, whereas Flatpaks and Snaps are automatically updated if and when the author releases and update. Flatpaks and Snaps use more system resources in terms of disc space and memory due to the extra dependencies they have to carry a...

Dump Mint and use Ubuntu server. Makes zero sense to run a desktop OS on a server.

Re: Why

Expecting the OS to make any noticeable difference to the performance of an office app on a high end machine=misinformed.
Coming to Linux complaining that Windows games don't run well=pointless. Go try running some Linux games on Windows and complain to them.

Re: Can Linux be used for remote monitoring?

There's no special OS for monitoring cameras if that's what you're asking. Any Linux can do it. The real question is whether you want to be running a desktop 24/7 whilst the data streams to your HD. If so, use something like Mint. If not, use something like Ubuntu server and view the files over the ...
