Re: Downloading part of a webpage with wget

Have you tried "Save page" from a browser? (It typically has options about what to save) I actually just decided to print the pages that I am interested in to a PDF. It wasn't too much work in my case. To elaborate on that: In looking at the flags available with wget it was tough for me t...

Re: Downloading part of a webpage with wget

I'm curious as to what it will do if I try copying another page from that site into the same folder. Will it create duplicates of the other folders, overwrite the existing ones, or something else? I've got a busy day ahead so will probably be later before I get another look at it. I'll return with ...

Or instead of chmod,

Code: Select all

sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /media/netherprovinc3/BackInTime15&VMs
changes ownership from root to you.
shouldn't the command be

Code: Select all

sudo chown -R $USER:$USER '/media/netherprovinc3/BackInTime15&VMs'
because of the "&" causing other behavior?

Re: Downloading part of a webpage with wget

I've never used wget but this prompted my curiosity as I use a local server to build websites offline. I googled wget and used a couple of examples to try it out on a Wordpress website. Haha, great. Even a newb can occasionally open a veteran's eyes to something every now and then. To copy the comp...

Change to less restrictive permissions on external drive

Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon 64 bit. The external drive is a Seagate STEA2000400. I have an external drive partition that I have been using for Back In Time backups. Now I want to store a VM image on that drive, too. However, the owner and the group are both root. So, I think that's getting in the way o...

The system has 28 Linux kernels installed. I'd try using Update Manager to remove all but the most recent one or two.
Thanks. Was very easy to do using Update Manager, as you recommended.
Freed up over 11 GB of space by removing all but the most recent 3.

Re: HP Officejet 8610 network printing stopped working (1 computer only)

Indeed, it's far better to apply a static IP address for your printer which should be achievable on the router. Thanks. I will add that to my to do list. I might get a new router or printer soon. So, I'll probably put off for a bit. Would be awesome if I could get a router (or other device repurpos...

Re: HP Officejet 8610 network printing stopped working (1 computer only)

I also would suggest that you install hplip-gui from synaptic and use that to set up the printer. You'll have to input the IP address you choose manually but after that it should work well. Good Luck. I just checked and I do have hplip-gui installed. It's version 3.17.10+repack0-5 Maybe I should tr...

If you don't have any scripts or router functions that explicitly rely on MAC addresses then there is no downside.
