Hey all, I am having some trouble and hoping someone can point me in a direction. I have three computers all running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Two laptops (Toshiba & Dell) and a touch screen all in one HP. I would like to use the HP as a "main" computer, if you will, and allow the two laptops to access the pictures and music. I have been trying to set up a simple server/client situation with fails on all tries. They all connect to the same Wifi and I have set up file sharing on the folders, but I cannot figure out how to allow the laptops to access the HP. I have already tried the sshclient/sshserver, but after that the "connect to server" screen I drop the ball. I am not an expert, but I would like to think I have a good grasp on things if they are explained. Is there a simple way or program I can use to to let me network the 3 computers? Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Glad it worked for you. If your username is the same on each PC, you can drop the first part. . .

I'm in the process of upgrading my media rig at my house to incorporate mergerfs and snapraid, add in NAS storage to supplement my server storage, and move my tv from sickrage to sonarr.

I have never really don't a lot of backing up but considering the configuration that has to be created and fstab entries for mergerfs and snapraid I really want to get some full backups scheduled. I'm wanting to do daily snapshots, weekly backups, and monthly backups (that will be compressed every month). I'm moving ahead with rsync and have been doing some reading. Right now I'm running with

$rsync -avz--progress --exclude-from=excludes.txt / /mnt/nas/rsync

where i'm telling it to exclude /mnt (where all my mass storage is mounted), and /home/user/parity (my snapraid parity drive)

Do you guys have any recommendations about other things I might not want to sync?

Anybody else having an issue with Font Viewer not running? It just shows the mouse busy cursor spinning, but eventually does nothing? Is there a fix?

Terminix now available in PPA for Ubuntu 16.04

Terminix (and its dependencies: ldc 1.1.0 and gtk-d) was uploaded to the Debian Sid repositories recently. To make it easier to install and stay up to date with the latest Terminix versions, I used the official Debian packaging (thanks to the packagers!) and created a Terminix PPA for Ubuntu 16.04 and Linux Mint 18.

Also, since Terminix requires GTK 3.14, it can't be built for Ubuntu 14.04.

I'm curious, does this have any impact on Unity?
About GTK+ GTK+ is a graphical user interface toolkit that is used to build applications, developers can use GTK+ to create applications’ interfaces to provide the ease of use to end users. GTK+ is developed by the GNU team which is also leading the development for many other components of the GNOME project since 1999. GTK+ …

+Vladimír Jícha​​ if you read the GTK dev's original post, the plan outlined there is much more subtle than the summary in this article. The GTK devs plan expects most applications to follow the stable cycle, which is released every 2 years and have stable API/ABI, rather than the 6 monthly unstable cycle.

Third party theme authors and application authors that follow the six monthly cycle is cautioned to do so at their own risk. The six monthly cycle is mostly intended for GNOME applications to dogfood themselves.

What essentially that GTK is doing is to treat 4.0, 4.2, 4.4 releases as some sort of public beta for the LTS version that comes every two years. If you want stable API/ABI, follow the biannual release train.

I didn't notice mine upgraded to 16.04.1 seamlessly, until lsb_release -a told me
so it must have gone very smoothly

Skype or Hangouts?

"Use Google Hangouts to keep in touch. Message friends, start free video or voice calls, and hop on a conversation with one."

Install Chrome plugin via: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/google-hangouts/nckgahadagoaajjgafhacjanaoiihapd?hl=en

Best: Your can directly call any Android user. You even can build up voice calls from Android to Android, from Android to Ubuntu desktop, even from Android or Ubuntu to Windows desktop with Chrome browser installed. So, it's pretty universal.

Best: In 2015, Google licensed 1.5 billion (not million!) Androids. So, 2 billion users on earth already have Google Hangouts installed, perhaps without knowing.

Have fun!
Hangouts brings conversations to life with photos, emoji, and even group video calls for free.

+sad​ I don't use video calls much, so I'm not actually worried too much about a closed-source system. For the few calls I have made I used Hangouts.

In April, Facebook announced it had built a “Surround360” 3D-360 video capture system, but that it did not plan to sell it. Instead, the social networking giant promised it would open source both the hardware and the Ubuntu Linux-based software used to stitch together images from the camera into stereoscopic 360 panoramas.
