Re: File copy problems

ls -ld /var/lib/emby/data drwxr-xr-x 5 emby emby 4096 Jul 30 11:09 /var/lib/emby/data That tells me that a user called "emby" has full access to that directory, users that are in the "emby" group have read and execute permissions but not write, everyone else has read and execute permissions but not...

Ok. So what do you get if you type in the following at the terminal:

Code: Select all

ls -ld /var/lib/emby/data

Re: Desktop Icons

You have to put something on your desktop (besides the standard items such as Home, Trash, Computer, etc) before they'll show up in the ~/Desktop directory. Try putting a document on your desktop.

Re: Host my domain from home

I'm with xenopeek on this one. Yes it's definitely possible but there will be a steep learning curve and unless you do everything right you'll be opening up your computer (and possibly any others on your LAN) to hackers. You might even find that running a server is against your ISP's terms and condi...

Re: Wyze Camera viewer

Since Wyze is an android based camera, is there an android emulator that I can install on my Linux Mint machine where I could download the app and run Wyze's own software? Yes! Check out https://bluestacks.app/bluestacks-for-linux and let us know how you get on (I haven't tried this myself but I've...

Re: Wyze Camera viewer

I am new to Wyze and was wondering if there is any viewer that can access these cameras. What a coincidence, I've just set up my first Wyze camera the other day! The camera itself seems to be working really well, and the Android app that you use to control it is also fairly good. I've used IFTTT to...

Re: Delete key makes screenshot, `i` makes some kind of line break

Is this a desktop computer with a separate keyboard or a laptop with a built-in keyboard? Some keyboards, especially on laptops, have a special "Function" key that alters how the keyboard works (eg to activate a numeric keypad on a keyboard that doesn't have a separate numberic keypad). Is it possib...

Re: Intel NUC Bean Canyon NUC8i5BEH suitable for Mint 19.1?

The NUC8i5BEH is an excellent choice for a Linux Mint workstation. That's what I'm using and everything worked right out of the box (after I'd installed the memory and SSD).

I also bought mine from PB Tech (but over here in NZ), they were very helpful.

Re: Tried launch Opera Browser got error Messages

Hope you enjoy your Opera!

I use it as my daily web browser and find it much better than Firefox and Chrome (even though it's built on Chromium they've added some nice features that make it different).

Re: What to do when Linux 'freezes' ?

The keyboard is a Logitech K120 Azerty. The mouse is a Logitech M110s I assume these are wireless and use a Logitech unifying receiver dongle plugged into a USB port? If so then try pulling the dongle out and reinserting it. I've had to do this a couple of times when my mouse and keyboard suddenly ...

Murray, That's exactly what I hoped for. I don't need any of the 'extras'. I just need the list which I can manipulate by changing the alpha-numeric of the various columns.

Re: Windows Access database to .ODB?

Assuming it's just the data you want to convert (not forms, reports, etc) then can't you just export the tables as CSV files and then import them into LibreOffice?
