ACL on usb Memory Sticks - how to eliminate

Every usb memory stick that I insert now is read-only due to ACL. I have tried setfacl -b and chown without really obtaining a writable state. Personally, I'd like to totally eliminate ACL, at lease for auto-mounted media and maybe for the whole system. How can I achieve this? System: Host: bergamon...

[SOLVED]: a2p - Awk to Perl translator - Missing??

Eurica! Compiled a2p with sudo cpanm App::a2p AFTER installing missing build utilities with sudo sudo apt install cpanminus. It seems to work. Thanks again catweazel.

Re: a2p - Awk to Perl translator - Missing??

Thanks catweazel. I've git cloned the repository https://github.com/Leont/app-a2p.git but I am unfamiliar with the build system used by the author. NO .config or Makefile. I have no idea how to build it.

My system is: Linux Mint 18 Sarah

Does anyone know where I can find it?

Re: rules.d not creating ttyUSB0|1

Since my two USBasp devices are Chinese-made and several years old, I suspect that their FTDI chips are probably counterfiet. I am growing suspicious that FTDI may have inserted their malicious code into Linux. It is widely publicized about what they did to Linux drivers ( http://hackaday.com/2016/0...

rules.d not creating ttyUSB0|1

I have two USBasp AVR/Arduino programmers. Both worked flawlessly on previous Mint versions. I haven't used them for a couple of years and discovered that I couldn't use them on Mint 17.3 because plugging in the USB cable (idVendor=16c0, idProduct=05dc) no longer created a /dev/ttyUSB0. I have tried...

Re: Usbasp programmer

I have two Usbasp programmers, it is the original one - a small black box slightly smaller than a pack of cigarettes. Its USB ID is the same as shown in the Germany link. Both of these used to work fine on previous versions Linux Mint but on 17.3, I cannot get a /dev/ttyUSB0 to be created. I've stru...

Re: gnubiff popup fails

Message 28 at link below fixed it for me.
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=718311

Excerpt:
A workaround to the popup height issue:
1 - in line 46 of /usr/share/gnubiff/popup.ui, set the False to True

Log out/login and it is fixed - at least it was for me.

Re: Issue with Wine/Eve online

I am researching a similar issue. After upgrading to Mint 17.1, WINE no longer works. From what I have discovered, 17.1 kernel is 3.13 and 16-bit apps are broken there. There is a temporary fix in kernel 3.15 and a permenant fix in 3.16. I think that you and I are currently out of luck. READ: https:...

Shotwell only works with Gnome. To use with XFCE you must apply my previously posted fix.
