    Latest version of Mint Cinnamon. I have absolutely no F#$#%$KING use for this stupid feature. It forces me to enter my password before connecting to a network share and also, presumably, is keeping the share password from saving. Google has lots...

    I can honestly state that most of my games library runs either just as good or faster than native Windows, with performance and compatibility constantly improving due to impressive advancements made by both Valve and the community as a whole...

    So I'm playing around with Kodi and I've run into a problem. I think I've seen this before. I have a second drive in the box called "DATA". I copied some movies into a folder called 1Temp on DATA, When I browse from within Kodi to add files to...

    I'll have take another look at it. I remember it being clutsy and hard to navigate.

    The smb port should be opened by systemd when the service is run, I think. It may not be shown if it's in the lower (reserved) port range? I'm not familiar with Angry IP Scanner.

    Sharing anything outside of the Home folder requires the addition of a few lines in smb.conf, see here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1103318/ubuntu-18-10-samba-share-not-working-in-non-home-folder

    Thanks, will try and report back. I did notice that, according to Angry IP Scanner, there are no ports open on the box in question. It say [N/A], I guess that could mean something else.

    So, sounds like you've got step 2 from this askubuntu answer, but missing step 1?

    I want to share the entire drive, not just a folder. Using Samba/SMB. All set to read/write in the permissions tab. Thanks

    Linux Mint Cinnamon to Linux Mint Cinnamon. Both latest version and both up to date. I'm getting a message that says :"Permissions on this share do not allow others to access it". Nothing I do in the Permissions tab has any affect. The shared...

    Great thing about Linux is there's always options,

    My Plex server is Ubuntu Server 20.04. No CLI needed if I don't want. Just install x2goserver and a lightweight DE like XFCE on the server. Then install x2goclient and you can use SSH to get into a UI on the server. Works great for the few...

    Mine is an Intel NUC. Not quite a pi but close. Haven't looked at Kodi in a while. It was pretty but not very user friendly.

    Yes you can run a gui, multiple guis, remote guis, and even web based guis on linux. Webmin is really frickin cool. I have a linux samba 4 active directory server that i manage with Windows RSAT. So the server does not have a gui, but all...

    Thanks. Won't be needing much more than manage shares and network config. Server health monitoring would be nice but there's always IPMI for that. Gonna throw together a box and play around with it.

    I usually install only the core components to servers like xinit, lxde-core, vncserver, lxpanel... Some install xfce4 but IMO that's way too much bloat already. I prefer bare minimal with no bloat like libreoffice, web browser etc. And if you...

    Well, there's a Linux based TrueNAS (TrueNAS SCALE) which I believe is in alpha now, and does have docker support (even on the UI). At that point, VMs are a moot point, as you can find pretty much anything pre-built already within dockerhub...

    Nope. Didn't know that. Last time I checked, which was a long time ago, it was CLI only. I'll look into it again. Thanks.

    Think my biggest obstacle to dumping Windows completely will be Server OS. Don't think I can handle a CLI only OS which seems to be all Linux offers. Then again if I dig deeper in FreeNAS Jails maybe it will work. I also still maintain a Windows...

    I used Linux a ton back in the mid 2000s till I started gaming more again then switched back to MS for ease with games. A few years back I wanted to play with Linux again so I added a dual boot. The more I used it again the more I enjoyed it...
