Gnu/Linux (e.g. Ubuntu) is not MS-Windows. While it is better, it is not just an improved MS-Windows. There will be many things that annoy you during the transition. There will be many amazing things that Gnu/Linux does, that you will take years to discover (or never). I would start by installing virtual-box on your MS-Windows, and running Gnu/Linux in it. ...

If your Ubuntu is not recognising NTFS filesystems then you need to install ntfs-3g. After that then, as commented above, LibreOffice will take care of the docx and xlsx files. Just about all other file types are cross platform. Where you have been using software with their own formats or proprietary software that is not available in Linux then you will ...

I just dealt with this problem, so I'd like to put the answer here, as the documentation does not make it obvious. As you may know, Windows supports setting up SMB shares natively through Explorer (the "Sharing" option in the right-click menu for a directory). This link, found in a GitHub Gist collection, suggests that the proper way to share from Windows ...

Try this: sudo mount -t cifs //ServerName/Public /mnt --verbose -o vers=3.0,domain=ServerName,username=guest,guest,file_mode=0666,dir_mode=0777 Because of the --verbose option, it might produce a lot of messages regardless of whether it is successful or not, but if it fails, please copy & paste those messages into your original question to enable ...

Since Phoenix OS did not cooperate, and your CPU is VT-x capable, perhaps virtualizing it, Mac OS X, and Lubuntu under Windows 10 is a viable solution; https://itsfoss.com/install-linux-in-virtualbox/ explains the process using Oracle's free Virtual Box app.

That looks perfectly normal. The automounter takes over the top level directory, /srv/xray for all the mounts defined in the corresponding file or program, /etc/auto.xray. (In your case it's a normal file.) Filesystems are only mounted on demand, so when you looked inside /srv/xray you would initially have seen nothing. But when you ran ls -ld /srv/xray/...

I solved the issue myself, hopefully someone else will find it usefull. I took a look at ~/.xsession-errors, it contained: (imsettings-check:16467): IMSettings-WARNING **: 04:42:56.491: Could not connect: Connection refused (imsettings-check:16467): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: 04:42:56.491: g_dbus_proxy_call_sync_internal: assertion 'G_IS_DBUS_PROXY (proxy)' ...

Answer is easy after searching few hours... It's a VLAN! It seems that the Windows devices are ignoring the VLAN or finding them by themself. (I checked via Powershell and it says there is an empty VLAN ID) But at the end I called the fiber support and they told me the VLAN ID and after putting this VLAN ID to the linux systems (QNAP and OpenWRT Router) it ...

In my practice, I follow this video's guide to recovery windows boot manager from grub. Firstly, make a linux os (like ubuntu )bootable usb stick, plug into the PC, and boot from usb, enter live mode; Second, install lilo by sudo apt-get install lilo Thirdly use lilo to make master boot record of your disk partition. sudo lilo -M /dev/sda mbr Then ...

You should: Fix Windows' bootloader Set up your Linux bootloader for dual boot For example, I have systemd-boot in ArchLinux configured like this: tree /boot/loader /boot/loader ├── entries │   ├── arch.conf │   └── windows.conf └── loader.conf

Try mounting the Windows partition and running sudo grub-mkconfig -o <path-to-grub.cfg> now that you have os-prober installed. On my system the path is /boot/grub/grub.cfg.

Wine usually does not run if WINEPREFIX isn't owned by the user. That pretty much eliminates the option of a shared prefix. You can keep prefixes wherever you want, but each user will likely need their own copy of each prefix. This is covered by the Wine FAQ: 7.2 Can I install applications to be shared by multiple users? Wine does not currently ...

If you've mounted the remote SMB/CIFS filesystem you can use the nocase mount option. For example, in your /etc/fstab, do: \\192.168.1.247\sharename /mnt/location cifs auto,credentials=/root/credentials_file,vers=2.0,nocase 0 0 Note the nocase option at the end. Look what happens if you use the nocase option: /mnt/location» ls -...

My company decided to drop our VPN for ZScaler and being the only person running Linux at my company I was left behind because ZScaler doesn't have a native Linux client. Let me start by saying that this workaround is extremely labyrinthine and equally fragile. It requires two full computers which makes it both expensive and impossible to do on the go so ...

Another option that may make what you are doing easier is to install the rEFInd boot manager. This can be done either manually with Windows or with a package manager in Linux. On Arch Linux the command is: # pacman -S refind-efi # refind-install This will attempt to find and mount your ESP, copy rEFInd files to esp/EFI/refind/, and use efibootmgr to make ...

...if I install Linux on that other half of HDD, will it compromise my Windows install even if the bootloaders and installs are both on different disks? No. Can the Linux install (other half of HDD) mess up Windows through the empty Windows storage partition (first half) on the HDD? Not if you define you want a side-by-side installation on the HDD. ...

Considering you have over-written your Ubuntu partition with a Windows reinstallation, chances of recovering files are pretty low. With : A LOT of time a pretty large storage space on another drive another PC where you can plug your hard drive (stop writing on your Windows/Ubuntu drive NOW!!!) an indecent amount of luck (sorry) you may recover some files ...
