Re: SFTP sharing

I rand the code you listed. Then turned on the laptop and did the ssh. kept getting the same error. Go back into .ssh folder and the host file is empty still.
I didn't see where the original had been renamed either when going into that folder.

Re: SFTP sharing

And the odd thing of it is I had no issues of either machine contacting each other at all before the replacement of Wheezy on the laptop. Noticed at the beginning I was able to go to the desktop but not the other way. Thought it odd at the time but had a lot of other things to sort out in setting th...

Re: SFTP sharing

Sorry for the confusion. I got confused myself in this mess. But it's the desktop not connecting to the laptop since the installation of LM XFCE 17.3 when I replaced Debian Wheezy on the laptop. titlickmcgee@Titlick:~$ ssh-keygen -R 192.168.0.100 /home/titlickmcgee/.ssh/known_hosts:1: invalid line /...

Re: SFTP sharing

Tried ssh://abcde@111.111.1.111 and sftp://abcde@xxx.xxx.x.xxx both same results. I did the deletion ...

Re: SFTP sharing

Same here with the router bit but for some reason thought that I read Mint setups automatically. If not then shouldn't be any issue. Did like how it automatically did the sftp over to desktop. I didn't even do the ssh at first. Just popped in the sftp in the thunar and connected right up. Got so use...

Re: SFTP sharing

Go to the one on desktop and delete the key. Then do ssh <user name on target box>@<xxx.xxx.x.xxx> to get a new one when signing in right? will it go through to Mint on laptop or will have to do anything to firewall on mint? Know that firewall is disabled on Debian by default.

SOLVED:SFTP sharing

My issue is this. Before I installed Mint XFCE 17.3 on the laptop I was able to go from desktop to laptop and vice-versa with the simple SFTP. Now I can do from laptop to desktop but not other way around. I'll get an error about begin denied. Been a while since trying and can't remember exact warnin...

Re: Created new forum account, can old one be taken over?

you probably didn't need to dump your old email account, but rather change the password on both that & your forum account, the chances of them using your old forum account are real, but not that high, but theoretically, that could happen. - still a long shot, though. Crap. Thanks Pierre. Forgot abo...

Re: Change Forum Password

Had no issue changing but now seems like I'm getting those screens that you have to copy before being allowed to log in. I'll only log in once and will be told that I've made too many attempts and need to do so. Anyone else having that issue besides me? Yes, I've had the exact same issue. I logged ...

Re: After 20 attempts, finally registered on forum!

I'm not poking fun at you guys but I'm saying I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with this issue. Even after having created my new password finally after a few times at it I log in tonight and got the message about too many times and had only actually done once. And I also got to put those special...

Re: Separate Root Password

Going to mark as solved due to not going to happen. Have done the sudo passwd, and even changed user password. Both wind up being the same. Looks like both the user password and the root password is going to be the same no matter what I changed. So, will just go ahead and enjoy the other aspects of ...

Re: Separate Root Password

"I could also have a separate root password" Mint's root-user has a separate password already, it just happens to default to the same sequence of symbols as the first installed user. Then why is it always asking for the user login password? That's what I've been saying all along here. If someone ha...

Re: Separate Root Password

I like a separate Root account. Don't like having to do the sudo bit each time I want to do something in root. Hence the separate root. I see that there is a root terminal icon here which I like. When I want to do root I can click on it and use password. But, I also like the idea of a separate passw...

SOLVED Separate Root Password

Is Mint able to have a separate 'Root' password? I'm running 17.3 XFCE. Got the root terminal setup etc. Decided to try changing my user password thinking that the root would maintain the original password I had put in when I first installed the OS. But that didn't work. When I went into the root te...

SOLVED Seeing Workspaces

Using Mint XFCE 17.3. Have installed 7 workspaces. However Only way I can go from one to another is by doing the control+alt+arrow. But, I'm not able to see the workspaces on the panel. Is that they way it's supposed to be? If not, then how do you get the workspaces to show up so you know which one ...

Re: No Root password needed for Mint?

Thanks everyone!!!! Got this done. Now have a 'Root Terminal' on the panel. Sweeeet!!!!!

Now for something else to try and fix. Nothing really desperate but would like to see differently. I'll post in a new one. Has to do with 'workspaces'.
