    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...

    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.

    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...

    Import passwords into Firefox?

    I also believe that any password program is going to give someone else access to your passwords. All software calls home to upload your info to it's maker.

    Import passwords into Firefox?

    I've never had a Firefox account. Don't really like the idea of storing my passwords on somebody else's server. I've been opening the XML file when I need a password. Sooner or later I'll have them all back in. I stayed with FF 52.9 ESR for as long as I could. FF pissed me off when they decided...

    Import passwords into Firefox?

    Might be pissing in the wind here but thought I'd consult the experts before giving up. Just upgraded to the latest version of Mint Cinnamon. I was using a firefox addon call "Password Exporter" to manage my passwords. It exports the password list to an XML file. Apprently the newest version...

    Windows 10 slow to shut down, BIOS or new windows issue?

    It won't be long now before you'll have no choices at all. You'll do as MS wants you to do or you won't do at all. The Sheeple are being led to the slaughter and most are totally clueless.

    Sould I upgrade? Would I gain anything?

    Thanks. Yep, it's still updating. I'll read the release notes and then decide. In the past I've opened up a can of worms more than once jumping a version number. Kinda like to not step in it this time but 20.?? has been out for a while so maybe it's worth making the jump.

    Need so UEFI shell help

    Thanks. Saved for future reference. I managed to get it sorted out. Main problem was I didn't know the syntax to map the USB drive and then to switch to it. These 2 pieces of knowledge were nowhere to be found but I did find lots of bogus, bullshit info. Like I needed to boot off the USB drive...

    Windows Server 2012 R2 switching to ACHI after installing with IDE enabled in the BIOS

    Anybody who has ever done this knows you won't get back into Windows. I went searching for a solution and found tons of them and they all involved editing a registry entry that does not exist in Windows Server 2012 R2. So I kept looking and stumbled upon this web page -...

    Need some help guys

    "There is none so blind as he who will not see." Open your eyes and see where Microsoft is leading us all. Our freedom is slowly being eroded away and Microsoft (and others) are leading the way. If you can't or won't see this I have nothing further to say to you.

    Pioneer Andrew Jones Bookshelf - $74 and Mid - $59 - Newegg

    Don't have them mounted, just strategically placed as best I could. They sound damn good. Don't know if I'd gain anything by mounting and precision locating them.

    Why doesn't Microsoft want people to create local accounts?

    It's a damn shame that the current generation of snowflakes have no clue what slavery is and how it's implemented.
