xfce - Xubuntu: black screen after lock screen (light-locker, lightdm, logind, xfce4-power-manager) - Ask Ubuntu
Q: [...] The problem is that when my laptop goes into lock screen (or maybe suspend but I always disable that in power management options so it shouldn't), then it is quite common that I am not able to login back to it. Screen stays black after opening lid and pressing a button. [...]

A: The issue is due to lightlocker and XFCE no longer playing well.

I was able to fix this issue by upgrading to XFCE 4.14 from the Xubuntu staging PPA, removing light-locker and installing xfce4-screensaver. Please note I did this from a clean install of 18.04.3, so you might need to restore any changed settings.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/staging
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt remove light-locker
sudo apt install xfce4-screensaver

encryption - SSH remote user need to be logged in? - Ask Ubuntu
Q: I'm trying to set up an SSH server. I put my public key in the authorized_keys file, made sure the permissions were correct, etc.

When I restart the server (really just Ubuntu 12.04 desktop) and I ssh to it without first logging in on the server, I am asked for a password. If, however, I log into the server, I can ssh without being asked for a password. [...]

A: The problem usually arises if your home directory is encrypted. The usual solution is to put your keys in a directory other than your home directory, and point your sshd_config file to it.

For example:

1. Move your authorized_keys file on the server from /home/buck/.ssh/authorized_keys to something like /etc/ssh/keys/buck/authorized_keys [...]

encryption - Will changing password re-encrypt my home directory? - Ask Ubuntu
Q: I need to change my user password. Do I need to take any extra steps for my encrypted home directory to become inaccessible with my old password and only accessible with my new password?

A: There is no need to re-encrypt your home directory, and no further steps need to be taken.

Your home directory is not directly encrypted with your password. Instead, the passphrase used to encrypt the home directory is itself encrypted with your password.

When you change your password, the home directory passphrase is re-encrypted with your new password, so you should have continued access to your files with the new password. [...]

linux mint - mount: No such file or directory with encrypted recovery - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange
Q: [...] Nothing I’ve tried seems to work and I don’t have the original mounting seed. I’ve also tried sudo ecryptfs-recover-private but my system then just says No such file or directory:

Currently, the main implemented functionality is control of battery charging and extended battery status. The tp_smapi software package also includes an improved version of the HDAPS driver. The underlying hardware interfaces are SMAPI and direct access to the embedded controller.

This driver uses undocumented features and direct hardware access, so it may work unreliably or even damage your hardware; but so far no such damage has been reported.

If you are installing on a recent Thinkpad that has an Ivy Bridge or newer processor (X230, T430, T530, etc.), tp_smapi will not work. You will be mostly limited to thinkpad-acpi capabilities. You can however set battery charge thresholds with tpacpi-bat.

linux - How to disable AAAA lookups? - Server Fault
Q: ... to compensate for broken DNS servers that are outside our control.

Our problem: We deploy embedded devices that collect sensor data at various, mostly IPv4-only sites. Some sites have poorly maintained networks, e.g. misconfigured or otherwise broken DNS caches and/or firewalls that either ignore AAAA queries altogether, or respond to them with broken replies (e.g. wrong source IP!). As an external supplier to the facilities department, we have next to no influence on the (sometimes reluctant) IT departments. The chances of them fixing their DNS servers/firewalls any time soon are minuscule.

The effect on our device is that with each gethostbyname(), the processes have to wait until the AAAA queries time out, at which point some processes have already timed out their connection attempts altogether.

User identifier - Wikipedia
Unix-like operating systems identify a user by a value called a user identifier, often abbreviated to user ID or UID. The UID, along with the group identifier (GID) and other access control criteria, is used to determine which system resources a user can access. The password file maps textual user names to UIDs. UIDs are stored in the inodes of the Unix file system, running processes, tar archives, and the now-obsolete Network Information Service. In POSIX-compliant environments, the command-line command id gives the current user's UID, as well as more information such as the user name, primary user group and group identifier (GID).

A typical Amazon EC2 private DNS name looks something like this: ip-12-34-56-78.us-west-2.compute.internal, where the name consists of the internal domain, the service (in this case, compute), the region, and a form of the private IPv4 address.

It is really clean.

[SOLVED] Trouble with faulty RAM, kernel "badram" parameter not effective on 64-bit flavour
Q: [...] 64-bit version of Ubuntu is entirely different story. First of, documentation says BadRAM pattern should be extended to 64-bits for x64 kernel, so in my case:


However, changing it like this just makes the computer hang before it even reaches the Grub screen. So I tried just appending badram parameter to kernel command-line (extending it to 64-bits ofcourse), but it doesn't work as it should neither. Machine successfully boots, "free" command reports 4 KB of less memory, but apparently it doesn't blacklist the actual defective sectors of RAM, but some good ones I guess, judging from the fact that computer once again just hangs after few minutes.

Redirect Linux sound to DLNA receivers using PulseAudio / 27 / 2015 / Archive / Magazine / Home - Ubuntu User
This is where DLNA comes into play. The protocol lets you stream multimedia data via the network. Streaming is really easy thanks to PulseAudio DLNA [1] if you have a DLNA-enabled AV receiver or another device with the necessary support, such as a home cinema PC or a Raspberry Pi with Kodi. The latest version of the DLNA server used with PulseAudio also supports Google's Chromecast dongle and (at least in theory) Sonos loudspeakers.

chaifeng/ufw-docker: To fix the Docker and UFW security flaw without disabling iptables

UFW is a popular iptables front end on Ubuntu that makes it easy to manage firewall rules. But when Docker is installed, Docker bypass the UFW rules and the published ports can be accessed from outside.

The issue is:

* UFW is enabled on a server that provides external services, and all incoming connections that are not allowed are blocked by default.
* Run a Docker container on the server and use the -p option to publish ports for that container on all IP addresses. For example: docker run -d --name httpd -p httpd:alpine, this command will run an httpd service and publish port 80 of the container to port 8080 of the server.
* UFW will not block all external requests to visit port 8080. Even the command ufw deny 8080 will not prevent external access to this port.
* This problem is actually quite serious, which means that a port that was originally intended to provide services internally is exposed to the public network.

Searching for "ufw docker" on the web can find a lot of discussion: [...]

Pass: The Standard Unix Password Manager
Password management should be simple and follow Unix philosophy. With pass, each password lives inside of a gpg encrypted file whose filename is the title of the website or resource that requires the password. These encrypted files may be organized into meaningful folder hierarchies, copied from computer to computer, and, in general, manipulated using standard command line file management utilities.

WARNING: iptables is being replaced by nftables

A network firewall is a set of rules to allow or deny passage of network traffic, through one or more network devices. A network firewall may also perform more complex tasks, such as network address translation, bandwidth adjustment, provide encrypted tunnels and much more related to network traffic.
