Hello, A year or so ago, Skype worked fine. Since then I transferred my hard drive to a different model Acer Veriton computer.

Re: How to bypass Samba not working with Linux Mint 20.

Thank you so much. Although beyond my comprehension why/how it works, your first solution worked fine. Much simpler than I had thought possible. [1a] You could override the default setting of Samba and reinstate SMB1 ( Samba calls it NT1 ) on all your Linux machines. Edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and rig...

Re: UPS problem: COMMLOST with APC CS650 and gapcmon

My thanks to you both. However, I just sent the UPS back to Amazon for a refund, prior to their deadline for returning it. It will remain a mystery. Looking at its .conf file, I see: DEVICE /dev/ttyS0 is already commented out. (Although there is no line with 'DEVICE' on its own) I see also that ther...
