Installing Ubuntu 17.04 on Intel/Nvidia based PC

Thu, 2017-09-21 13:48

Tried to install Ubuntu 17.04 (Dual boot with Windows 10) on my PC but it always displayed graphical artifacts, I tried installing again by changing the parameters from quiet splash to nomodeset, successful installation, but the resolution is only at 1366x768 and my monitor's native resolution is 2560x1440. I then proceeded to install my GPU driver (Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB) then prompted me to restart. After restarting, I'm stuck on a login loop. I'm losing hope right now coz I haven't already gone to a solution and I've been searching google since last night. Anyone here with an intel-based PC running Ubuntu 17.04? Need a little help. By the way, I'm running Ubuntu 17.04 on my laptop (also dual boot with Windows 10) and haven't run to any problems from installation up til now.

Fish shell variables setting problem

Thu, 2017-09-21 12:20

I'm pretty new to a fish shell, and it was amazing so far. But there is one thing that I can't understand: how to set a shell variable which will remain until I change it? In bash that was pretty easy — you can just do export VAR="value" or edit bash_profile

For fish I've tried both editing and do set -gx VAR value

But when I close my terminal completely, open a new instance and do echo $ANDROID_HOME all I get is just an empty line

So I have 2 questions:
* how to edit to set variables?
* how to set variables with a set command?

Department of Defense Release Security Guidelines for Ubuntu 16.04 (xpost /r/ubuntu)

Thu, 2017-09-21 11:34

The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) is the organization within the US Department of Defense responsible for providing IT connectivity and guidelines for securing those assets. Until today, the only Secure Technical Implementation Guideline (STIG) that existed were for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and 7, which limited the traction that Ubuntu was able to make within the DoD.

Last month, DISA authorized the release (pdf) of a STIG for Ubuntu 16.04, which paves the way for the owners of DoD systems to approve inclusion on Ubuntu on US DoD systems. The STIG was released to the public this week. This a big deal, since it's the first STIG for a free (as in beer) operating system.

The STIG can be found here. An viewing application to parse the XML content can be found here.

PulseAudio under the hood

How would I create a cron job that moves files from /Videos to /Volumes/Drive after the timestamp >30 days?

Thu, 2017-09-21 07:40

My goal here is to keep movie torrents on my local machine for 30 days, and then have anything older than 30 days pushed to my backup drive. I only have a 512 GB SSD. I want to be able to watch movies on planes, but only the last 30 days worth.
