Re: How to automatically mount a drive/partition on startup ?

The Guide that Kester posted, step #10, is actually optional. You don't need to reboot for changes to take affect. That's only if you want to ensure that it's working right this second. It's safe to wait until the next scheduled reboot if you like.

Re: BIOS and Hard Drived locked in Toshiba laptop

On resetting the BIOS I found this: https://bit.ly/3fiwOka The way I understand it, the BIOS can't be tampered with by the OS itself. The purpose of this is to prevent people from bypassing the BIOS password. In UEFI I believe limited access can be granted to a few select features. As for the BIOS p...

Re: Virtualbox 6.1 fails to install to Ubuntu 20.04

Re: What Don't You Like about Linux Mint?

Configuring the system in such a way that the user cannot update the kernel via the terminal ( sudo apt-get dist-upgrade ). This is unnecessarily restrictive, IMO. If the user goes out of their way to open up a terminal and enter in commands as an alternative for what a GUI offers, they should be a...

Re: Which virtualization to use: VMware, VirtualBox or QEMU?

+1 for the VBox support comment. As far as vmware goes, I've found that it runs better on a windows host than virtualbox and open-vm-tools/vmware gfx drivers are pretty standard in Linux repos these days. I'm not sure if you want a Windows host, or a Linux host, but if you choose Windows as your hos...

Re: Gaming on Linux Mint

The only Windows game I play is Diablo 3. What I do is install WineHQ, then install Lutris, then install Diablo 3 through Lutris. Lutris is another game platform, like steam, that allows many Windows games to be installed and played on Linux using Wine+scripts. Personally I don't see any performance...

Re: Need to report a bug in openssh-server

The solution to this is that I have 2 NICs in the machine and a static IP assigned to the unplugged NIC was causing the problem. I remove the static IP configuration and magic.

I have an issue with openssh-server not binding to an IP on boot, but if I do systemctl restart sshd , it starts right up. I tried reporting using the ubuntu-bug tool (after installing apport) but it says I can't report the bug because it's not a "Linux package" (whatever that means), in s...

Re: GPS Maps can steer you wrong and be very dangerous to your life

We are seeing an increasing trend of drivers choosing to blindly follow a GPS into areas they are not familiar with [...] That's the problem. GPSs are tools, not autopilots. It's not the GPSs fault that people don't know how to use them. IF you accidentally smash your finger with a hammer, is it th...

Re: Missing SSD in File Browser

Devices can only be used by 1 system at a time, so if a hard drive image is in use by the VM, it cannot be used by the host. The same is true for USB thumb drives and peripherals as well.

Example: you cannot use your webcam on both the host and the guest simultaneously.

Re: How do I give a folder ownership back to root?

Ok. Root should be the owner of the home directory it's self; sudo chown root:root /home The default Linux Mint permissions for /home is root has rwx, group and others have rx, that is fixed with : sudo chmod u=rwx,go=rx /home These 2 commands are NOT recursive. ------ Once the /home directory is so...

Re: File System Free Space Full, Home Empty?

Is there a way to do this without deleting all the contents of my OS? You can use a tool called gparted to resize your partitions. The problem is that you cannot resize a partition while it's in use, so you'll likely need to boot off of a Linux Mint installation USB/CD/DVD and do it. If gparted is ...

Re: Virtualbox: Was this a mistake with the install?

You're fine on both accounts. the amd64 tag tells apt to only use the 64bit version. Omitting that tag on a 64bit system will still install the 64bit version. and 19.1 is built on bionic.
