I don't get why my Ubuntu 18 VirtualMachine in VirtualBox does not use swap that is shown in 'top', despite that I have set vm.swappiness=100. Anyone any idea how to fix this?
 
12:29 AM
@user1095332 top in the real machine or top in the vm? I think the hard disk space in the real machine for swap probably is unlawful for vm to use. If so you would have to set aside real estate for vm to use as swap. But I've only used vm to boot and record grub screens so not sure...
 
@WinEunuuchs2Unix top in the vm of course. Does anyone know how to fix it?
 
That said I've been looking for an excuse to upgrade from 8 GB ram for about 5 years. The day swap ever gets used I finally have an excuse to buy 32 GB ram. @user1095332 this chatroom is the wrong place to ask support questions. The main Ask Ubuntu room will give you thousands of users per day, this room only a dozen people or so.

I came across a recent Q&A in AU's main site where one of the answers is wrong. I posted a "mild" comment for the answer to which there's been no response from the person who posted the answer. The answer has been upvoted more than once but not yet accepted. In general terms, what to do?
 
2:55 AM
@DKBose post the link. We can flag it to death as harmful if it is
 
3:41 AM
It's just wrong, incorrect, not harmful in the sense that OP's system will be wrecked: askubuntu.com/a/1179187/248158.

How do I enable the screensaver in Ubuntu Server 18.04.3? I know I can disable it by adding consoleblank=0 to the boot, but I actually want it enabled and kick in as soon as possible. Like 2 minutes of no activity. Just installed the server and the screen has been turned on for 3+ hours now so something is preventing it from kicking in?

Never mind, found an answer here: askubuntu.com/questions/1111403/…

Q: How to port forward all ports in OpenVPN?

Jacob WheelerI have a VPS running OpenVPN on Ubuntu 18. I've successfully setup OpenVPN and can connect to it from my computer. Now, the reason I'm doing this is to open all my ports since my university internet blocks them all which results in bad connections online (strict NAT). I tried using a few iptable...

@DKBose Why haven't you downvoted? That's what downvotes are for!
 
8:43 AM
@terdon I was hoping the poster would amend the answer in view of my comment!
 
@DKBose Ok, but if it's wrong, please downvote. That is the only way to indicate to other users that the answer is wrong.
If the OP then fixes it, you can always retract the downvote.
 
@terdon okay, will do!
 
I mean, it's your call. Do as you like, but it's really helpful if we downvote wrong answers! :)

@terdon done.

Q: How do I get x11vnc to turn on during Boot, without logging in, so I can access over SSH Tunnel?

anarchyI am using Ubuntu 19.04. I want my vnc server on my ubuntu computer to turn on during and I don't have a monitor plugged into it. I want to be able to run the full ubuntu-desktop remotely. I have managed to get my SSH server to work, and I can also get my x11vnc server to display on my mac vnc c...

 
@DKBose and @terdon I can't downvote (or flag for that matter) the answer because I don't know it doesn't work. I'd have to install Mate first to test it... The OP should test the answer and then comment.
 
12:09 PM
@WinEunuuchs2Unix Same here, that's why I didn't downvote :)

@terdon @WinEunuuchs2Unix if you check packages.ubuntu.com, gcolor2 is not in the bionic repos. It is now only in xenial. Please also read askubuntu.com/questions/1073990/… and N0rbert's answer there. N0rbert uses Ubuntu Mate among other flavors.
See also Ravexina's link to tracker.debian.org/pkg/gcolor2 indicating that the package was removed in Debian.

@dessert Come on now. I've already been down-voted enough, don't encourage them to do it more :P
@DKBose I'm sorry I have too much to learn with sshfs just today, Python. JSON and GJS to learn from months ago and SQL to learn from decades ago. I understand some of you guys love Mate and nothing personal but I don't want to learn a thing about it. I'm not trying to be callous but hopefully realistic.
