Re: Crontab not working on Fresh Install of Linux Mint

Notice the "(CRON) info (No MTA installed, discarding output)" in the status output. Basically, you have no way of monitoring the output of your cronjob. You can change the crontab entry to redirect the standard output and error to a log file. Add the >>~/cron_zip.log 2>&1 to the end of your crontab...

Re: Can I create an automatic backup with Grsync

Hi all, I like using the GUI Grsync to backup my /home folders. Currently I have to manually create every backup. I don't see how to create an automatic backup in the GUI Grsync application.

Re: HDD Enclosure will not mount XFCE 19.3

The fact you cannot open a terminal (sometimes) while using Live mode from the installation media is troubling (like a hardware problem). Did you buy the new laptop locally? If so, maybe you can go back to the retailer and ask them if you can try the aukey on one of their units in the store. You can...

Re: Replace \x00\x00\x01 with \n\x00\x00\x01 -- How?

The substitution needs to be done thusly: xxd -p -u | tr -d '\n' | CONVERT > FILENAME.txt tr -d '\n' takes out the newlines and CONVERT puts in newlines where I want them. Where I want them is immediately before '000001'. Thus, this: '123456789000001234567890' becomes this: 123456789 00000123456789...

Re: Replace \x00\x00\x01 with \n\x00\x00\x01 -- How?

I assume you are using string literal for the \x00\x00\x01. Also, is the \n a string literal or the actual ascii code? The \x00\x00\x01 is binary. \n is CR+LF. Oh, wait, if the substitution is done after tr, then I want to replace this: 000001 with this: \n000001. I do not understand your orginal p...
