Can no longer mount windows share via fstab mount -a

I had some drive corruption that I repaired but now a share on my windows nas server won't mount from fstab. It used to work just fine. Here's the line from fstab, but of course nothing has changed in the fstab file. //192.168.1.61/Man-CaveSync /media/syncovery cifs credentials=/home/cave-man/.smbcr...

Re: Adding workspaces doesn't stick

If I use marco I have 4 workspaces. Not so with compiz. Hard to have a cube with only 1 desktop.

Re: Adding workspaces doesn't stick

When I run sudo deconf-editor I find workstrations are set to 4 and it says that's the default. I change it to 2 and as soon as I hit enter it goes back to 4.

I thought I saw another place to choose the number of workspaces, but maybe that was in mate 16?

Re: Adding workspaces doesn't stick

Update. deconf-editor says I have it set to 4 workspaces. But, only 1 is seen via workspace switcher. Compiz cube doesn't see them either. I'm sure there's a file somewhere that contains the information... Where and what is the name of it?

That's exactly what I did. Installed desktop switcher. I tell it I want 4 workspaces and it goes back to 1, every time.

Adding workspaces doesn't stick

I'm running mate 17.1. I added workspace switcher to the panel and gave it 4 spaces displayed in 2 rows. The spaces never show and when I go back, it's set to 1 space again. What the... heck?

Re: Add another hard drive

Almost solved:) I don't think I want to use links or binds. I'm actually using the new drive as a temporary holding place while I convert 2 hard drives into a raid 0. Then I want to move it back to /home on the raid 0.

Re: how to add .sh to mate 17 menu and to auto start

By "sends it to the background", you mean minimizes it to the tray? Which is what it does.

Incidently, since I created the new item fixing the missing 'L', I no longer need mate-terminal -e in front of the path and command.

That load brought me down. But it's Downloads in the menu, so no help.

It's already executable and runs just fine from the terminal, but I can't seem to get the syntax right to run it from the menu.

Re: how to add .sh to mate 17 menu and to auto start

That doesn't work. I set it to terminal application with: sh /home/cave-man/Downoads/serviio/bin/serviio-console.sh as the command and nothing happens.

What's the specific syntax?

make sure the ARRAY statement in mdadm.conf is correct and then add a mount point in fstab and then update initramfs. Hey, thanks. Nice pun, that bit... I can move the data back and forth but I have no idea what array statement belongs in the mdadm.conf or where it belongs in there. I have heard of...
