apt-daily only does one thing by default: it downloads the list of installable/upgradable packages. If you turn it off, you'll need to run apt update (or equivalent) more frequently before upgrading or installing packages. Nothing depends on apt-daily (you can check that systemctl list-dependencies --reverse apt-daily doesn't prevent anything else from ...

Use visudo to remove any mention of 'pwfeedback' in your sudoers file. If on, it's usually under one of the 'Defaults' lines. You can also add a ! before any instance of pwfeedback in the file to explicitly disable it if you need finer-grain control. Edit: If you're uncomfortable using vi you can also specify the editor with something like EDITOR=nano ...

visudo is a command provided for editing the sudoers file in a safe way. To quote its manual page: visudo edits the sudoers file in a safe fashion, analogous to vipw(8). visudo locks the sudoers file against multiple simultaneous edits, provides basic sanity checks, and checks for parse errors. The /etc/sudoers.tmp file is lock file used by visudo. ...

LinuxMint added the behavior in /etc/sudoers.d/0pwfeedback. You could simply do like I did, delete the file as it contains only that adjustment: sudo rm -rf /etc/sudoers.d/0pwfeedback

After @JeffSchaller directed me to this password feedback I found that in /etc/sudoers.d is new file named 0pwfeedback with content Defaults pwfeedback. After removing this file, problem with stars in sudo was solved. Second problem with login to console is known: ubuntu bugs but I am still trying figure out how to solve it. Edit 6.3.2019: It looks like ...

After much searching, I found the answer in a Debian bug post exchange: If the okular package is not installed, kile can not start and crashes on a segmentation fault. The solution was to run sudo apt-get install okular

Ansible will perform the three tasks you outlined above, and provides multiple examples of how to configure their playbooks of actions you can apply to all devices, or selectively based on conditions.

You probably can not do a low-level format, and probably don't need to. What you can do is set up partitions, and add file systems. A good tool is gparted. This comes in two flavours: a bootable image (Gnu/Linux and gparted), and a package to install into your existing Gnu/Linux OS. apt-get install gparted. Be careful as it is very powerful tool, and can be ...

Just run cat /etc/debian_version in the terminal.  This gives you the Debian version, i.e., 'Stretch' would be v9.  See Debian version history and Debian on Wikipedia.

When starting an installation for dual-boot from the OS installation media (of any OS) in a dual UEFI + legacy-capable system, you should look very carefully for any clues indicating which boot method will be used. If you use a firmware boot menu of some sort, you may see not one but two options for booting your installation media: to successfully enable OS ...

Linux has no unified locking mechanism on files. There are various types of advisory locking mechanisms but they don't work on all file systems. This means applications usually use their own mechanism. The most common trick is to create a hidden "lock" file next to the original. If the hidden "lock" file exists, the application will refuse to open the ...

In Linux Mint 19.1 there is a Driver Manager that is meant for installing (not only) the Nvidia drivers, example on my laptop: I personally avoid installing those drivers via other means, thus so far no problem appeared. It is the recommended way under Linux Mint. It is thus my personal recommendation.

To answer the title question, no, the SMART results by themselves are no cause for concern. Although your drive does have some unreadable sectors, it will reallocate them from internal reserves on the next write. Right now, Reallocated_Event_Count tells you that just nine blocks of the flash (corresponding to 9 * 2048 = 18432 sectors as shown in ...

If you run git init in a directory which isn’t already a git repository, removing .git will reverse all the effects of git init without any other side-effects.

As noted in the comments, the simplest solution is to just connect an external keyboard, which might be via USB, bluetooth, or an onscreen one operated by a mouse. The OP says that he doesn't have another keyboard available. If it is possible to break in at the grub prompt (or whatever bootloader is being used) then you can append init=/bin/bash to the ...

Try this: sudo apt-get install deborphan Once installed, run: deborphan, this should show you the unused packages. To finally remove them, type sudo orphaner. Hope this helps :)

I had the same issue with Linux Mint 18.3, I tried it with cinnamon, mate, and KDE, still, the issue persisted. I figured it was due to the compositor OpenGL, It seems that Linux mint works better with XRender more efficiently.

I had this same problem at my university, it's caused by Linux Mint not having default settings for WPA2 Enterprise connections. You can fix it by doing the following: Open 'Network Settings' Choose 'Connect to a Hidden Network' For Network Name, put the name of the network ('eduroam' in your case) For Network Security, choose 'WPA & WPA2 Enterprise' ...

In most cases, the RandR extension is used to configure display settings. Therefore, I will focus on it in this answer. So this answer may not apply if you're using Wayland, the proprietary NVIDIA drivers without DRM (Direct Rendering Manager) kernel mode setting enabled or have disabled the RandR extensions. If so, calling xrandr should result in an error ...

This doesn't quite answer your question per se, but is arguably a technically correct answer, so I'm taking advantage of the nicer formatting afforded to answers so this isn't 30 wall-of-text comments. You aren't likely to get an answer on SO/SE, because there simply isn't enough domain-specific knowledge present. You're far better off talking straight to ...

In my experience, if you install Anaconda as the user (not to the system with sudo), it will install all its files, including its python version, to your specified directory in your Home. Only Anaconda support files are put into your system folders, so there is no interference with the operation of existing programs. In order to use the Anaconda programs ...

I had the exact opposite problem of this with Mint 18, but the solution should be essentially the same. If you run xinput --list --short, you should get an output of peripherals connected along with their ID. We just want the mouse, so we can pipe it into a grep: xinput --list --short | grep -i mouse ⎜ ↳ USB Optical Mouse id=8 [slave pointer (2)] So the ...
