comment Thunderbird Search Results — How to find out the folder
I had to switch to a "list of results" to go this way but then it worked just fine, thanks!

comment Timezone setting in linux
Try date +"%R p %Z" to see if it's an AM/PM issue and which time zone the date command assumes.

Maybe it is. Depends on the answer.

comment Timezone setting in linux
I think it's clear enough. OP has India standard time set, and it's 17:29 in India which means it's 11:59 UTC. then OP changes just the time zone by that cp command; the UTC isn't affected (as we can see), but the localized time now is 5:59 GMT+6 although it should be 17:59 GMT+6.

comment Removing files on ZFS does not free disc-space
Yeah thanks, that seems to state this clearly. I will still have a test on removing the snapshots. If this also does not help, I will come back ;-)

comment Removing files on ZFS does not free disc-space
No, of course not. I would like to keep those, of course, and just because I think that this might be connected I won't remove them just to check the idea. I also find it weird that the snapshots should be part of the file system. They are on the disk, of course, but why should they be reported as filling the FS space? But if this is so with certainty, then I'd like to know anyway ;-)

comment unable to send mail from server
Probably a problem with the smtp server which is supposed to process your send-request. Any info about how that is configured?

comment How to send an `xmessage` as root remotely to regular user logged in with 'x' session?
Hmm, that's tricky because you cannot really know what the user's Desktop will do with your approaching window. Is it possible to have a daemon running on the user's X session which you can contact to display something? That would be a cleaner approach than simply throwing a window on his screen. Such a daemon can be written in a way so that it also would work on text consoles etc. Also, using wall you can ask the user to run a specific command to give you the feedback you would like to get from him.

comment How to mount an old encrypted disk on Ubuntu
I hope there is a workaround using cryptsetup (8) or the kernel module cryptoloop; documentation of those sometimes mention a support for an obsolete loop_fish2.

comment How to mount an old encrypted disk on Ubuntu
That would mean to set up an old SuSE from around 2007 or so (I'm not sure anymore from when this was, could be some years more or less). That doesn't sound easy. I hoped to be able to mount that thing on a modern ubuntu.

comment Error running Samba share of fuse mount
I don't know for caseyboardman, but I had the same problem and solved it after reading that answer here. In my case the samba server tried to get the attributes of something nonsensical like "/path/to/*" (with a verbatim asterisk). For that my getattr() raised a Python exception instead of returning -errno.ENOENT. After consulting the fuse's log file, I found that out very quickly and after correcting it, I got my fuse running via samba.
