Trash on the desktop?  I don't think I've ever seen it there.

It's not there by default but you can add it if you wish

Any of them .. they can all run mysql, but you may find the availability of online help for Ubuntu (or an Ubuntu based distro) helpful.

No idea, but it's not always being re-routed to the same IP .. I notice in one of your pics at one point it was routed to

Have you tried restarting your router ?

and checking your hosts file and/or firewall.

Try running:
Code: [Select]
sudo mv -v ~/.local/share/Trash ~/.local/share/Trash.broken

Is the problem that there's no trash on the desktop, or in Nemo itself ?

Printers and Scanners / Re: HP Envy 7640 detected but won't print
« on: June 17, 2018, 01:59:32 pm »
Well it should work in Loki as that printer was supported since hplip version 3.14 and Loki should have 3.16.

Anyway, I don't know much about Elementary, but what GUI application are you using to connect the printer ?

Have you tried installing hplip-gui
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install hplip-gui
then using the menu item called HPLIP Toolbox to set up the printer ?

it'll default to root unless you specify a user account to log in as .. as in:-
Code: [Select]
ssh packt@centos
Code: [Select]
ssh packt@<ip.address.of.server>
or if you're using a non-default port:-
Code: [Select]
ssh packt@<ip.address.of.server> -p <port number>
but that user account must exist on the remote PC/server.
(you're not logging on WITH the local account, you're logging on TO an account on the remote PC/server)

Personally I'd suggest one of


Take your pick really.

I'm suggesting these simply because they're all Ubuntu based which means you'll find TONS of help/tutorials/documentation available (for Ubuntu) that applies to them all.

It would be impossible to say with 100% certainty that they'll work with your hardware, but that's the great thing about LiveUSB's, you get to test them out before making any changes to your hard drive.

If you require any help creating a LiveUSB just ask.

Oh, and welcome to the forum :)

So you don't mean screen position, you mean terminal SIZE ?

You also haven't mentioned distro/version/architecture .. or desktop environment
