comment Shared Linux machine - block home folder access to other users?
root can do anything by default. But you can install a secured version of Linux (like SELinux) where you can restrict root, too.

comment Shared Linux machine - block home folder access to other users?
@sa125: Be careful with the -R: It will also change permissions for all files. Also, don't forget the -x flag. If that is set, other users can still cd into the directory (even though they can't list it).

comment Is it possible to share Eclipse through Remote Desktop session
You must import the files again. Just select the new workspace folder in the "Import Existing Project" wizard and it should show you all projects at once.

Copy the workspace folder and delete the folder ".metadata". Export the preferences in Eclipse, start a second copy, switch the workspace (it should ask during startup; otherwise use the item in the File menu) and import the prefs.

comment Linux doesn't detect external USB hard drive
If it doesn't say anything, then you have either found a bug in the USB driver or the hardware is defective. The only workaround I can offer is to keep the file open and plug the drive in repeatedly until it is recognized. Maybe try a different cable and a different port and check that the power supply is OK. If the drive needs too much power, the USB chip might disable it to protect you against damage.
