Re: Accessing Shared Folder Remotely

Well Done! I think I found all the config files -- all but one service (Subversion Server) started on a reboot, as far as I can tell.

Everything is instantaneous, and I can write back edited files.

Need to keep watch for oddities and peculiarities, though.

Thank you, @altair4!

Re: Accessing Shared Folder Remotely

One more item to add to the mix: /media/brian/Stuff/ is the mount point for a second hard drive. I didn't choose it. (But, not that Mint knew what I was planning to use it for -- database, websites, error/access logs, cachegrind, ebooks, subversion repositories, Timeshift, etc.) I will learn how to ...

Re: System Crontab Runs

I received an answer from GracefulRestart over at the Unix&Linux Exchange forum: That cron will not run if you have systemd available, as the test if [ ! -d /run/systemd/system ] would fail. This is because systemd has it's own method to schedule the PHP session cleanup, and your posted log mentione...

Re: System Crontab Runs

Nope. Still ran the "Clean php session files" job and deleted the session files.

Next test: move the php crontab file out of cron.d.

(I am hoping to avoid rebooting!)

File Icon Meanings

For a PHP session file, I have an icon of a piece of paper, shaded inside the margins, with an X in a small square box placed at the lower-right corner. Question: Is there a help file somewhere that lists the meanings of icons and overlays seen in Nemo? (Eventually, I will get RabbitVCS connected to...

[Solved] System Crontab Runs

It seems Ubuntu wants to clear out PHP session files every half-hour. I found the crontab file in /etc/cron.d/php . I edited the file by making the relevant line a comment. I expected that now that there is no information in this crontab file that would establish when it should trigger the task, not...

Re: Authentication Unsuccessful

Having read up on what the command 'mount' does, I learn that one of the parameters is to say, "if an error, set as read-only". Using that to support a hypothesis, for having made a warm restart through bios (after the recovery boot startup - which warned of possible video driver problems - which di...

Re: Authentication Unsuccessful

That was shortened from (I believe) /dev/sdb -- the second hard drive. Ok, maybe /sdb1 is the proper term?

Re: Authentication Unsuccessful

When at the recovery boot (at root) I executed:
mount -o remount,rw /

Now, device sdb is all read-only and giving input/output errors.

Re: Terminal Paging

I read up on "less".

I will suppose the 'service' command implements 'less' or 'more' to deliver its output.

Re: Terminal Paging

"Scroll on keystroke" might be a euphemism for "Scroll on input".

And these Scroll settings may be completely misunderstood, on my part, as to what they actually mean.

Terminal Paging

One would think this would be everywhere - but here I am: I think this may also be called "Scroll on Keystroke". The behavior of Terminal (on my system) is for large output (a list, for example) to be output in its entirety, scrolling the screen as necessary. However, Preferences for the active "Unn...

User and Groups requires Authentication, which was accepted. It shows the same list.

Re: Authentication Unsuccessful

I did the recovery boot thing (props to gm10).

Now, it seems I can start the Software Manager without authenticating -- but I will have to check on other things.

Would it be a good idea to re-add 'me' back to the:
adm cdrom sudo dip plugdev lpadmin sambashare
groups? I would assume so.
