  3. did you figure it out ?
  4. UPDATE: I had already added vers=1.0 to the fstab file, and I had rebooted at least twice. I rebooted again without making and changes other than unmounting the drive in Files, and it's now working. I'm not sure how tenuous this link is, but hopefully this fixed the issue.
  5. I've changed strategies. Since the permissions issue was obviously too complex to tackle with my limited ability to explain the problem, I decided to simply use my router's Samba hosting and plug the hard drive in there. SUCCESS! I can access the samba share using smbclient from the command line, and I can access it from Gnome in "Files." However, when I try to use CIFS to create a permanent mount to the Samba drive using the EXACT. SAME. INFORMATION. it says, "mount error(112): Host is down." This is the most frustrating thing I've experienced in the world of computing. I just want to share my damn external drive so that I can use Plex/Kodi/etc. to watch my decades of media on my devices in my house. I'm using Ubuntu 18.04. It shouldn't be this complicated. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  6. I am running Ubuntu 18.04. I'm new to Linux, but I'm pretty good at reading various guides. Unfortunately, I've tried so many solutions to this problem that I'm not even sure where I am in solving the issue at this point. I have successfully setup a Samba share on my Ubuntu machine, but when I open the folder on my Mac, I cannot do anything other than see the folders and open the files. Trying to do otherwise results in an "Operation not permitted" error on OSX. I know this must be a permissions issue, but I have attempted changing ownership and permissions to wide open in an effort to force the ability to add files to the external hard drive on the Ubuntu machine from my MacBook, and I'm having no luck. Like I said...I'm new to Linux, so I don't even know where to begin regarding logs, etc. Any guidance--even if it's "completely remove Samba and start over"--would be appreciated. Please bear with me, as I've explained the issue as much as I currently know how to explain it.
  7. Can someone help me with my Western Digital NAS? It runs Linux and has some hard-coded shares that cannot be deleted from within the GUI. I've connected via PuTTY but don't know how remove the shares. Anyone home?
  8. Hi and welcome to Linux-Noob. Usually install windows 10 first then Linux. The Grub (bootloader) will add Windows 10 in bootloader list. Newer computer using UEFI instead of BIOS. This will explain you how to do it: https://itsfoss.com/install-ubuntu-1404-dual-boot-mode-windows-8-81-uefi/ Hope this helps and good luck
  9. Hi, Im completely new to linux (other than trying a live cd), Ive been trying to install Linux Mint (on my dads PC) and Ubuntu Studio (on my PC) alongside Windows 10 following instructions on various web-pages...where I get stuck is when it tells me to select the FREE SPACE on the windows drive, it does not display the free space on the drives, it does show 2 lots of free space as 0MB and 1MB on the windows drive on both mine and my dads PC's - two seperate installations/instructions and exactly the same issues? all I can do is install it directly as a lone OS on a drive, Iam a noob and unfamiliar with linux partitioning etc can anyone help me install linux alongside windows 10? thanks
  10. Hi, me and my dad are wanting to switch from windows to linux, I have very little experience with Linux (ran a few live CD's years ago), I installed MINT on a VM and read that MINT and UBUNTU where the recommended choices on most websites, I went to install TOR to help my dad with it (no good to me) and when I ran the Linux installer file nothing happened, I then read that on Ubuntu based systems you have to install programs via several terminal commands, the instructions (below) where quite overwhelming just for a single program installation, I know using terminal is the core of using Linux, but Iam just wondering if there are easier to use distro's that would be better suited for 2 noobs that want to make a transition from Windows to Linux, one where programs can be installed a lot easier than the instructions below?? if possible?? - I do wish to use the terminal but surely it can be easier than that? thanks in advance to enable all package managers using the libapt-pkg library to access metadata and packages available in sources accessible over https (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure). sources.list: You'll need to set up our package repository before you can fetch Tor. First, you need to figure out the name of your distribution. A quick command to run is lsb_release -c or cat /etc/debian_version. If in doubt about your Debian version, check the Debian website. For Ubuntu, ask Wikipedia. You need to add the following entries to /etc/apt/sources.list or a new file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/: Then add the gpg key used to sign the packages by running the following commands at your command prompt: We provide a Debian package to help you keep our signing key current. It is recommended you use it. Install it with the following commands: Now Tor is installed and running. Move on to step two of the "Tor on Linux/Unix" instructions. The DNS name deb.torproject.org is actually a set of independent servers in a DNS round robin configuration. If you for some reason cannot access it you might try to use the name of one of its part instead. Try deb-master.torproject.org, mirror.netcologne.de or tor.mirror.youam.de. Use Apt over Tor deb.torproject.org is also served through via an onion service: http://sdscoq7snqtznauu.onion/ To use Apt with Tor, the apt transport needs to be installed: Then replace the address in the lines added before with, for example: Now refresh your sources and try if it's still possible to install tor: See onion.torproject.org for all torproject.org onion addresses.

    Fedora 29

    Just a few tweak. Dark mode of course :) Running: Terminal and Visual Code. I use python code on here for my daughter's home work lol. I added Dock at the bottom and it looks nicer :)
  12. i'm also interested in bash scripting as i've started working with Mac's, yes I know they are not linux but there are similarities i'm sure

    Upgrade to Fedora 29

    I have not has any problem, it was pretty straight forward. I have Raspbian (Debian base) on Respberry Pi and there isn't any problem tho. When I first start Linux for the first time. first Distro I used is Redhat 7 (code name: Guinness - release 2000). That how I stick with RedHat family. I also do like Gentoo but too long to build lol.
  14. I did tried to play Doom on it, the screen kept flicker. Wayland is just early, it runs fast tho.

    Fedora 29

    I have been with GNOME for the past, it seem functional fine, but not much of theme, tweak like GNOME 2. I used KDE but hate it! lol. I use raspbain on Raspberry Pi, it using PIXLE it quick and lightweight DE.
  16. But now that I'm thinking of it, I'm interesting hearing about container platforms and cloud platforms under Linux, and anything that is has to do with Linux where the IT world is going to cloud and container based solutions and automation and configuration management etc. And also Ubuntu/Debian, and CentOS/RHEL, and Linux security etc. And reading some about power shell under Linux would be nice too, and am interested in bash shell scripting and python scripting, does that help?
  17. I heard of wayland, but will be sticking to xorg for now since all my video card are nvida cards. If there is no nvidia support I won't be able to play games under Linux with wayland. Let us know once you test wayland with gaming under Linux will be interesting to hear your experiences.

    Fedora 29

    Cool Desktop! How are you liking Gnome3? I was running MATE desktop before but I switched to Cinnamon a while back.
  19. Thanks for posting! I stepped away from fedora a few years back because during upgrades stuff kept breaking. Ran on Scientific Linux for a while, but running Ubuntu and Debian now, never had any problems with upgrading since.
  20. Hey anyweb, This is feedmebits here, new looks of the forums look nice! I'm willing to help out when I can and when I have time. Not sure yet what I would like to read, I mostly like reading topics where people have a question, problem or need advice, and like to learn stuff from others as well I usually get my news sources from other sites, what are you ideas to starting over? btw I sent an email to your hotmail acount did you ever receive it, chances are it might have arrived in your spam folder. Cheers, inittux/feedmebits

    Fedora 29

  22. Upgrading Fedora 28 Workstation to Fedora 29 Using the command line This method is the recommended and supported way to upgrade from Fedora 28to Fedora 29. Using this plugin will make your upgrade to Fedora 29 simple and easy. 1. Update software and back up your system Before you do anything, you will want to make sure you have the latest software for Fedora 28 before beginning the upgrade process. To update your software, use GNOME Software or enter the following command in a terminal. sudo dnf upgrade --refresh Additionally, make sure you back up your system before proceeding. 2. Install the DNF plugin sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade 3. Start the update with DNF Now that your system is up-to-date, backed up, and you have the DNF plugin installed, you can begin the upgrade by using the following command in a terminal: sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=29 This command will begin downloading all of the upgrades for your machine locally to prepare for the upgrade. If you have issues when upgrading because of packages without updates, broken dependencies, or retired packages, add the ‐‐allowerasing flag when typing the above command. This will allow DNF to remove packages that may be blocking your system upgrade. 4. Reboot and upgrade Once the previous command finishes downloading all of the upgrades, your system will be ready for rebooting. To boot your system into the upgrade process, type the following command in a terminal: sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot Your system will restart after this. Many releases ago, the fedup tool would create a new option on the kernel selection / boot screen. With the dnf-plugin-system-upgrade package, your system reboots into the current kernel installed for Fedora 29; this is normal. Shortly after the kernel selection screen, your system begins the upgrade process. Now might be a good time for a coffee break! Once it finishes, your system will restart and you’ll be able to log in to your newly upgraded Fedora 29 system.

    Fedora 29

  24. I cannot reply post on Site News, no idea why. 

    It's really up to you to start over, If we start over, all information would be more up to date, but some solutions from the past may come in handy?

    Fedora 29

    Hello Folks, Fedora is about to release Fedora 29 on 30th October 2018, but not yet confirm! I will let you know once it official
  26. Well, it's true, I've neglected this site for years, for various reasons including work, my Microsoft MVP commitments, and of course the sister site windows-noob.com. You could say I've practically ignored linux-noob.com and done as little as possible to help it survive other than the bare minimum which is to keep the domain name alive and make sure the data in the site itself was protected, but the time has come to re-resurrect the site, breath new life and start afresh. So, today I've updated the site license, and will with the help of the web server admin plan to upgrade the site to the latest and greatest version of Invision Power Board and once that is complete, start to re-energize this site and get people coming back. Please help ! But before doing that, I need you to help me understand what exactly you want to read about on linux-noob, what should this site be about going forward ? Do you want a complete re-birth or just move forward and start-over ? I'd love to read your comments and look forward to the next stages ! cheers niall
