    Arch Linux

    Running Arch Linux XFCE 4 whisker menu Powerline Theme Archway Neofetch information What do you think of screenshot? I know it pretty plain and simple lol
  4. Can't decide which Distro you want to use? Don't worry! You can try out various Distro on https://distrotest.net/ it's free! This will help you to finding the right Linux Distro for your needs. ENJOY!
  5. did you figure it out ?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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.
