Re: Pulse audio not working unless root

Alright after digging around some more I figured out the root cause of the issue. Seems to be that whenever I launch firefox with firejail, it prevents pulse from creating new files in /dev/shm and deletes whatever files were present on boot. I believe its this exact issue referenced here https://bu...

Re: Pulse audio not working unless root

Ok for some reason it stopped working again, and this time nothing shows up from 'find $HOME ! -user $USER'
This is a bit perplexing.

Re: Pulse audio not working unless root

This works fine if I do sudo pavucontrol. That's probably how you broke it - now root own your pulse files. If this command returns files, take ownership of them: find $HOME ! -user $USER There were quite a few files returned by that command, among them was the pulse ini. I didnt realize running su...

If I try to open pulse audio using pavucontrol it opens but never establishes a connection with the following issue shm_open() failed: No such file or directory This works fine if I d...

Re: Unable to connect to dist1.800hosting.com:http:

Oh man I have a habit of figuring out problems a few minutes after I give up and ask for help. Apparently I can change my xenial source. I also had a theme that was using an opensuse repo. The below repo has an expired key which the developer didnt bother to update (from the theme I think) http://do...

Re: Trouble with firejail firefox downloads not persisting

To resolve this I named my mount point and then used that name to reference the folder location (ie 'Potato', /Potato/Downloads) then I set my browser to also download to that location instead of referencing home. Seems to work perfectly now.

Re: VPN

I wouldnt recommend a free VPN, since when a service is free then YOU are the product. I cant really suggest a good one though, I used PIA in the past, but the support has been getting progressively worse and I decided to renew with them. From what I gathered NordVPN is pretty decent but I have neve...

Re: Hard drive formatting questions

You have received some excellent tips above. Then I create the storage partition(s). The reason I do that is because of experience with hard drive failure. If my sda hard drive decides to die suddenly, which can happen, all I have to do is unplug it and boot the other one, and I am back in business...
