Re: File with UFW ports settings?

sudo ufw allow 21

will allow FTP traffic through.

This is a quick suggestion for the VM but I have my doubts - use 'partimage' to make an image of the drive, then extract it into the new VM setup. :idea:

Re: installing 32 bit app on 64 bit system

First, I would try a re-install of libgfortan (remove/install). Thats just typical me. Then you can try to reconfigure the package with: dpkg --configure --pending If that doesnt work, why don't you try to explicitly tell dpkg where the .so file is: dpkg --path-include=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu Last...

Re: No password in user accounts

Removing the password required for logon does not erase your password from the system. It is still required to do other system related changes. So whatever your password was originally...that is still the password. Use that when trying to use 'sudo'.

Re: Permissions problem

The 'chmod' command is used to 'change mode' of a file. In the terminal, you can view the permissions of a directory by navigating to it, and typing 'ls -l' (those are L's). So do read the manual page on chmod ('man chmod') to get the rundown on changing permissions. You will need to be sudo. To cha...

Re: HELP PLEASE. SUN JAVA JRE FIREFOX PLUGIN.

I installed the JRE from the command line and everything worked well. sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk If you already installed your JRE, do you have the .so in /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.26/jre/lib/amd64? (obviously this is x64, it could be a separate folder for x86). If it IS there, then we c...

Re: Disk Full - How Do I delete Files?

You will have to do it from the command line using 'sudo'. Just navigate to the file location and say

sudo rm -rf yourfile.ext
This won't require a password.

You can make your own commands by adding text files into the /bin directory and then making them executable.

Re: couldn't log out of Mint, graphics got messed up

The Windows problem is independent of the Linux problem; since they are on different partitions, they don't talk to each other. Error 43 is a failed driver, and might have just been a hiccup during boot.

For the login problem, can you try to log in as root or guest and see how far that gets you.

Re: Multifunction Printer Driver

Where did you get lost? Were you able to find and download a driver?

Also, check out

Menu > System Tools > System Settings > Hardware > Additional Drivers

But I will doubt this works, because Epson doesn't support Linux for this model.
