comment Enable FTP on a Linux machine
As implied in my answer below. If you install Open SSHD on your system, as everyone should do, you can avoid FTP, and get a much more secure file transfer (SFTP) that works just as easily as FTP would. And, obviously, if you want a SFTP client, use psftp .

comment Enable FTP on a Linux machine
@Hennes - you are incorrect about that. starting with version 5, there is an available SFTP subsystem for sshd. Notice that I did not suggest that he use FTPS.

comment Driver problems with fresh install of Win 7 Home Premium on Toshiba Satellite laptop
I have had nothing but bad luck trying to install windows on a laptop without using the original OEM cdrom. Personally, I would buy a OEM cd from the manufacturer before I would try that.

comment Autorun for PowerShell
I hate using doskey. I find that just putting those aliases in my script (as function)s works better.

Or use a similar route: kill the explorer.exe process and then re-run it.

I have had good results with that program although I am also totally stumped by the reasoning behind deleting the program files directory.

If there is a problem with 12.04, I am sure Ubuntu 13.04 would probably not.

comment DropBox sync on Ubuntu Server stopped working
If you can't get it working, then I would use AeroFS instead.

comment Does ClassicShell.net truly lets one boot to the desktop on Windows 8?
I know "Soluto" will do it as well as Stardock "Start8".

comment rsync: Can it transfer files ignoring size (comparing only timestamp and name)?
With AeroFS and "BitTorrent Sync" now available, it reduces the need for rsync IMHO except in some special situations.

comment Will buying a new cheap video card let me have a third monitor painlessly?
Some of the 3rd gen Intel i7 processors support 3 monitors and so, instead of a video card, in theory you could buy a new motherboard (it would need 3 separate vid connectors on it) and new 3rd gen CPU.

comment Can i connect multiple monitor on one video card
I have 2nd Gen i7 video and I run a DVI and VGA montiors, each at 1920x1080 . I don't notice any difference at all between the two identical monitors, and so I don't think the VGA is less quality, but I supposed it is possible that I am just not noticing it.

comment IE8 will not load certain sites
Also, try the issue on a completely different computer (or more than 1) that also has IE8. That should rule out a configuration problem that only exists on a certain computer.

comment FTP, CentOS and SELinux Permissions
If you can't figure it out, you can always use the FTP subsystem built into the SSHD daemon, which I know works out-of-the-box. Just SFTP to port 22.

comment How to create a FTP Server on Ubuntu 10.04?
vsftpd is unnecessary though if you already have the SSHD daemon enabled. I wouldn't use vsftpd unless i first determine that the SSHD FTP subsystem insn't enough.

This is certainly the best option if you don't need fine grained account control. SSHD 5.x+ has the FTP subsystem included.
