The Suncoast Linux Users Group (affectionately known as SLUG) is a loose-knit informal group of Linux users and enthusiasts in West Central Florida (the Suncoast/Greater Tampa Bay area). Our purpose is to provide mutual support and assistance for Linux users in the area, and to promote the use of Linux to others.

root-only ssh Topics Posts Last Post
That's probably the configuration for ssh'ing from the MyCloud to another machine. You need to look for a config file for sshd. It may be in /etc/ssh/sshd_config (that's where it is on my Linux Mint desktop). On Tue, Jul 21, 2015 at 4:37 PM, Eben King <eben01@verizon.net> wrote: &... 1 1

Reading further in the lockfile-create man page, you'll see in the example provided that it creates a backgrounded lockfile-touch process to keep the lockfile from getting stale during the long-running process. Presumably, the advantage is that lockfile-create and lockfile-touch both use li... 1 1

8. The Linux route: Mount a projector the the overhead, and have it display "virtual" tile, or your favorite stoner patterns onto the floor. 9. The Oculus Rift route: Give everyone entering the room ER/VR glasses with the decor you desire overlaid. This can really spruce up ... 0 0

5. Get wide-roll paper and make a whole floor template (better yet, get a few of sheets of doorskin (1/8" plywood) if the shape is something other than a rectangle and you want to do certain things around installed cabinetry, doorways, lead-up to fixtures, etc... and mark those fea... 0 0

Assuming that she has a smart phone, you could add "Mobile HotSpot" to her phone for an incremental $5-10/month. If she has just a flip-phone, maybe it's worthwhile to upgrade her to a smart phone so she can get the HotSpot feature for so little. I'm on MetroPCS (now TMobile). ... 0 0

opinion request: virtual machines & lap tops Topics Posts Last Post
It depends on your laptop resources. Besides the obvious, requisite drive space and drive performance, memory & CPU are critical. If you are running more than one VM simultaneously, consider having at least 16GBs of RAM. I found that a modern i7 processor is a must for more than... 1 6

Jody, Sure can and my company personally develops for most operating systems and architectures. I personally use virtual machines almost every day with VirtualBox. When I go on the road fresh backups are made to an external drive from which I can launch the VMs from the laptop if necessary... 0 0

room-layout software Topics Posts Last Post
I haven't seen anything Linux that does that unless you draw it in one of the CAD programs. If you have no CAD experience, there used to be some Windows programs for home design that had "try before you buy" versions for download. You could try a search and see if any are still o... 1 3

If you just want to "do it on the cheep", you could use Inkscape and draw objects for all the parts and move them around until it's the way you want it. This isn't necessarily ideal, but it will work. MSVisio has more advanced features and I've used it to do the same thing. ... 0 0

playing with routers Topics Posts Last Post
You don't have to have both routers configure as you have them because then you're double NATing. Your best option is to put the Arris in bridged mode. This will ensure that the linksys router gets your external IP and handles all NAT and IP assignment itself. "It is one of the essen... 2 2

[snip] You'll need to make sure that the DD-WRT is using a different block of private address space than that of the BH router. By the looks of it, the BH router is using 192.168.0.0/24 which is what the DD-WRT is most likely using as well. I would say you can probably reach the DD-WRT from... 2 5
