electrophileI have a USB-to-Serial converter for my Mac that I intend to use to connect to an Ubuntu server that outputs all its console over its serial port (its an APU2 machine that does not have any graphics output). On the server /etc/default/grub contains the following lines: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="gfxpay...

CasperUbuntu 18.04. I have a CIFS mount that apparently blew up somehow.

@WinEunuuchs2Unix Indeed. Apparently the system doesn't allow one-vote undeletion of automatically deleted "dead" questions by the OP. I had thought--or perhaps wished--it would.
@Videonauth Thanks.
@Fabby I've posted an answer.

Q: Is Lubuntu 16.04 LTS EOL?

K7AAYText in the last paragraph at this web link seems to limit flavour support: "Maintenance updates are provided for 5 years for Ubuntu Desktop, Ubuntu Server, Ubuntu Cloud, Ubuntu Base, and Ubuntu Kylin. All the remaining flavours are supported for 3 years." Is Lubuntu 16.04 LTS EOL & unsupported a...

666 bash × 101
devilish :)

@dessert Congrats!
I don't even have the gold badge.
(I need to answer a few more questions.)
@EliahKagan thanks! just today my boss announced that we’ll get linuxacademy.com accounts soon and are expected to use them (at work of course) :>

@dessert Congrats :)
@Ravexina thank you! I expect you to be the next one getting this badge! ;)
@dessert Soon... couple of years actually :))
@dessert Congrats for the dupe hammer :P
oh yeah, nearly forgot about this side effect…
Now I expect to see some future bash questions getting dupe hammered and a comment like "Let me know if doesn't solve the issue"
7:06 PM
@dessert You can also edit dupe banners to add or remove questions or change the order in which they appear!
(But you could already do all this for , of course.)
@EliahKagan exactly, but it’s really helpful – a nice feature

Some days ago I posted an answer to a FileZilla related question. While I believe this answer to be the real solution to the problem (instead of just deleting your configuration), I found (possible) duplicates of the question:
As far as I can see, I cannot mark questions as duplicates and given that none of the accepted answers uses the best solution I have doubts about forwarding people to the duplicate if the accepted answer may not be the best. I don't care about upvotes, but I really like to get the duplicates dealt with. Can anybody in here help? (I'll be offline now and probably check back in ... days, just wanted to get this out :D)
Thanks in advance for any of you helpful folks :)
9:39 PM
@EliahKagan Accepted and upgoated! Thanks!
@Kreuvf 1. Answer edited to improve readability
2. Started close vote of those 2 other Q&A to yours
3. Started a +50 bounty process to attract even more upvotes to your answer.
Please remind me to award the bounty as I've just started a new job and I'm kinda busy so don't have much time.

@WinEunuuchs2Unix Good evening... Can you see this one in the reopen queue???
(just wondering if a rollback to previous state removes it from the reopen queue altogether...)
10:56 PM
@Fabby Yes well I see it in both places. Interestingly it is similar to a script I published a couple years ago. That said it's about 14.04 which is off topic.

Funniest deleted question yet for the 10K club members: askubuntu.com/questions/1168741/…
11:52 PM
@WinEunuuchs2Unix sounds like an oopsie daisy :D
Does this graphical tool or one like it still exist?
