Re: How to make Bluetooth NOT visible?

This may not be quite what you are looking for (disable bluetooth entirely at startup). Then again, maybe so. :)

Re: Partitioning a 4TB Drive

Yes, you can do that. Technically, the functional limits of EXT4 are a single volume of 1EiB (exbibyte) and a single file can be up to 16TiB (tebibyte). But most of the time if you are approaching large size filesystem needs, there are other, more suited filesystem choices (XFS, BTRFS, etc). For a 3...

Does it complain if you put an entry in your /etc/hosts file for the time capsule?

Re: Permissions issue when accessing drives/partitions

Maybe you could add the qemu_vga user as a member of the disk group so that it is a secondary group for that user?

Code: Select all

sudo usermod -aG disk qemu_vga
This should allow the user to take advantage of the permissions available to the disk group where assigned.

Re: Mint to Mint LAN problems

The error message does indicate that either the service is not running and therefore not listening on ...

Re: malfunction with VPN client, default gateway hosed

Hi petrasr, The 159.254.0.0 line is simply identifying a second local network attached to your network interface. Your default gateway appears to be intact as 192.168.1.254. You can tell it is the default gateway since the Flags section has a G assigned to that line. Also, general routing rules foll...

Re: Autostart ssh server on LM 18

All that GUFW is implying by that warning is that it may be a less than great idea to have SSH open to the entire Internet (allow from anywhere). GUFW would prefer you restricted who can reach the SSH port by defining an explicit source IP or network that is allowed to connect. You have greatly impr...

Re: Autostart ssh server on LM 18

It looks like you nearly got it with the Systemd command except you enabled the socket and not the service. Try

Code: Select all

sudo systemctl enable ssh.service

Re: Evolution: Receive new e-mails, but can't send

Are you getting any error messages when trying to send? Also note that receiving is only handled by the POP3 settings. Sending is only handled by the SMTP settings. They don't overlap in functionality.

Re: When I hook up to wifi, my computer's name is visible to the network admin. Is there any way to hide it?

Hi James, Wifi network connectivity behaves the same as wired connectivity in most respects. So your computer typically must request an IP address from the network when it initially makes the connection. This request is answered by a DHCP server where your IP allocation is reserved using your networ...

Re: Cannot stream laptop to tv

Hi iampuzzled, Most likely what is happening is the default behavior of Windows and Mint are different for what to do when you plug in a 2nd monitor. I suspect when you plug in with Windows, it mirrors your desktop screen onto the TV (start bar, icons, etc). Whereas with Mint, I'll bet the TV is con...

It sounds likely to be a hardware issue with the drive or cabling. Can you eject the drive tray from within Windows or Linux? If so, then the drive is working at a basic level. The drive tray will open via the front button even if the data cable is not connected so that's not a valid test. You could...

Re: [Iptables] Make rules stay after reboot

Hi Frank,

By default, iptables does not maintain rulesets between reboots. However, you can save the ruleset to a file and have it load at startup using the iptables-persistent package.

Re: Network settings - Manaul DNS server entries

Hi ro55mo, The DNS list always queries from the top down. The only reason a query would reach out to the second or third DNS servers in the list would be due to a timeout attempting to reach the first server (or the second server, etc). This is a network connectivity timeout...not a query resolution...
