General Help & Advice / Sharing Files Over Internet
« on: September 18, 2017, 10:03:05 pm »
How can I share files over the internet.
What I want to be able to do is browse the files of another computer as if I was browsing my own, using Dolphin.

I have Teamviewer installed but that relies on a third party and I also have Samba installed but I have to be on the same network.

Any ideas?

General Help & Advice / Editing a PDF
« on: August 30, 2017, 11:19:22 pm »
I am trying to remove unwanted parts of a PDF, such as adverts (PDF created from web pages), but when removing the unwanted bits, the the formatting of the PDF is all screwed up, not by removing the graphics but by LibreOffice Draw. Is there a better program I can use which will not alter the formatting of the PDF?

General Help & Advice / Resizing PDF (How do I)
« on: August 28, 2017, 10:54:47 am »
I am trying to find a way to resize PDF's to print on the whole page of an A4 sheet. I have quite a lot of PDF's and they are all smaller than A4 and I'd like to be able to successfully enlarge them.
I have tried with LO Draw but it does not work as required, it leaves text flowing over the page or overlaps one line with another.
Is there a program which can resize PDF's properly?

General Help & Advice / [ABANDONED] Need to update BIOS
« on: August 24, 2017, 12:53:42 pm »
I have a Toshiba satellite c50-b-14d but I'm unable to update BIOS.
The file I have downloaded is from the Toshiba site and it's an EXE. I tried to install it via WINE but it would not work as it needs to install BIOS on re-boot or on a CD, which WINE says it can't do.

How can I fix this?

I have been using Ktorrent and had a specific folder where .torrent files and partial downloads and complete downloads are stored, each in their own folder. That was until 2 days ago when Ktorrent was failing to save the data.

I have discovered that somehow, the permissions have changed. I know it's not me as I have had no reason to change any permissions. I have tried to change permissions back to me but I get an error report.

This is a screenshot of the drives, drive EXT-01 will not let me change permissions.

I've also been looking into changing permission via the terminal but I can't seem to find the correct way to do it.

(p.s. Can anyone recommend a decent FREE file sharing site with decent size pictures)

[EDIT]
Sorry Mark. I followed your instructions and this is the smallest I can get.

General Help & Advice / Trouble with samba shares at bootup
« on: June 15, 2017, 07:30:44 pm »
I've got Gadmin Samba, Samba Status Moitor, Samba & Windows Shares all installed as I didn't know what each of them are specifically designed to do.

The main problem I'm having is that the shares ares available at bootup, I have to mess around entering passwords in the aforementioned programs to get the shares working.

Can anyone help me try and get the shares working at bootup, I've even tried setting them to run at boot but that still didn't work.

General Help & Advice / [SOLVED] Second monitor greyed out!
« on: June 03, 2017, 11:34:59 am »
I have just tried using a second monitor, which has been connected for almost a year.
I last used it less than a week ago.
My main PC is in our bedroom and the 'other' monitor is the TV in the living room.
when I go into 'settings' / 'display & monitor' I see both monitors but the secondary one is 'greyed out'

What I think is strange  is that when I reboot, the second monitor springs into life, showing the 'kubuntu' name
Then on boot-up, nothing.

I've checked the connections and there's nothing wrong with them, otherwise there would be no 'screen' in the settings display.

« on: May 30, 2017, 12:10:30 am »
I have discovered there's a problem trying to link Digikam to my facebook account.
I found THIS, which explains the problem and the solution but it's a few years old and knowing facebook, it no longer works.
Has anyone else had or got the same problem and figured a solution?

« on: May 25, 2017, 01:47:48 am »
I need to somehow have Thunderbird shutdown automatically before reboot as every time I reboot I get a warning that Thunderbird is already running.
The only option I have ATM is physically shutting it down every time I need to reboot.

General Help & Advice / [ON HOLD] Kubuntu 16.04 failing to boot
« on: May 21, 2017, 02:56:23 pm »
I've not long installed Kubuntu 16.04 on my new laptop and I am now unable to boot to either the desktop OR a Multi-Boot USB.

When I have the Multi-boot USB in, I see a warning flash up very quick which says 'Could not open "\efi\boot\fallback' then I get the GRUB Terminal screen with 'grub>'

Without the Multi-boot USB in, it boot as normal then gets to the login screen where I enter my password then the screen goes blank/black with the mouse in the middle and that's it, nothing else happens...

I have no ides why I am now unable.

As the subject header says, I'm trying to link up two computers.
Desktop is Kubuntu 14.04 and Laptop is Kubuntu 16.04.
How do I connect one to the other. I have done some 'Googling' and not got far as the stuff I find talks about clicking a 'configure' button and then instructions after it, but I can't see anything like it, the instructions are all out of date.
Here are the sites I've been on...
