    Somebody please tell me how to kill/disable the keyring

    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 of hits on how to do this but as usual, none of...

    Just upgraded my HTPC to Linux

    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 the library "DATA" is not an option. However, DATA...

    Just upgraded my HTPC to Linux

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

    Trying to share a drive

    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.

    Trying to share a drive

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

    Trying to share a drive

    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 drive shows up on the other computer but I cannot...

    Just upgraded my HTPC to Linux

    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.

    Just upgraded my HTPC to Linux

    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.

    Just upgraded my HTPC to Linux

    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.

    Just upgraded my HTPC to Linux

    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 7 box for a few games but I'll be exploring Wine...

    Just upgraded my HTPC to Linux

    Was happy to discover that Linux networks flawlessly with FreeNAS which I use for my media server. Everything works perfectly and that annoying ever so slight jerkiness is completely gone, video and audio are butter smooth. Microsoft is now completely out of the picture in this part of my life...

    What's the proper way to close a hung program in Linux?

    Thanks. In this distro it's called system monitor. Just added it to the desktop. Sure hope they fix whatever is causing this before I head to greener pastures.

    What's the proper way to close a hung program in Linux?

    Just recently upgraded to the latest version of Mint Cinnamon and I'm not a happy camper. Among other problem I keep getting random program hangs and don't know how to close them. These are just program hangs, not system hangs. Does Linux have a task manager? System was rock solid before the...
