the only thing you changed is what ports are scanned (rtfm)
if you only want a list of active hosts then you can disable port scanning completely
you may want to use something like this:
nmap -sn -oG - 192.168.1.0/24
alternatively if you have firewalled devices which don't respond to ping, listening for ARP packets would work. you could also look at dhcp leases / dyndns registrations depending on your infrastructure.

Canonical put spyware that reported activity to Amazon in one of their older versions. They've since removed it, but that's where their lodestar led them. Shits EZ AF, but so are the distros based off of it, which have a decent chance of having Canonical's BS stripped out before it makes its way to your system.

To branch off of this point. I've been screwing around with linux mint for a bit and I'm thinking about switching over to debian. Using an OS based on an OS based on debain seems kinda weird when I could just use debian. I'm curious how much of a pain in the ass I should expect compared to the plug-n-play™ linux distros I'm used to. Tips on how to get something out of debian I can't get from Mint would be welcome too.

it wasn't spyware
describes spyware
You know it searched everything, even internet histroy, which means it cookied everything, which means it reported everything, you web history included, in it's telemetry. I know, I dumped those packets to be sure I couldn't keep using that function. Then I found dmenu

Aaron Bennett

what's up with this story that ubuntu spies, are we living in idiocracy era already?

Robert Sullivan
Robert Sullivan

Yes and No.
It's great if you are already into the Unix environment and want a bit of backstory on why some things are done the way they are, but for the most part stuff has moved to a "higher level" as it were. This is a must if you intend to actually write C application code but if you're writing scripts to python tools can be missed without academic harm.

Gabriel Hill
Gabriel Hill

do you understand that you can opt out, it's not mandatory

Nathaniel Wright
Nathaniel Wright

So? It's still telemetry by definition.

Gavin Torres
Gavin Torres

You're confused. It's not botnet if it's opt-in. It's totally spyware if it's enabled by default, even if there is a opt-out option.

Brayden Hill
Brayden Hill

Inbuilt search function, it was removed, but it searched *everything* on the system, even your browser history, and then used the cookied information to recommend you amazon products. The problem was the system was in place for the longest time before anyone outside of Canonical or Amazon actually really read the code so it sorta flew past people untill they actually noticed amazon recommendations being creepy and browsing history in their search bar. Really it was the communities fault for blindly trusting shills, I mean use and abuse their software but don't be offended when they swindle you out of data for no money.

When you enter a search term into the dash Ubuntu will search your Ubuntu computer and will record the search terms locally. Unless you have opted out (see the “Online Search” section below), we will also send your keystrokes as a search term to productsearch.ubuntu.com and selected third parties so that we may complement your search results with online search results from such third parties including: Facebook, Twitter, BBC and Amazon. Canonical and these selected third parties will collect your search terms and use them to provide you with search results while using Ubuntu.

cron and systemd timers is a good place to start if you want to do linuxy stuff, bash scripting is far too much "heavy lifting" for doing cool stuff from cold start. It would waste your time on boring stuff and make you hate linux, look for easy outs like cron, anacron, systemd timers, init scripting and even break virtual machines. Actually writing the systemd timers to scrub a disk, umount a drive after a certain period of time online (simulating bedtime?) things like this will give you better drive to learn.

In 2017 google put out a "Android Samba Client" app which provided this functionality without root. They no longer offer this app though,atleast that i could find. It did exactly as i wanted, exposing a smb share to the files/gallary framework. So it has to be possible

The issue isnt getting the files, i have sftp for that. What i need is a way to expose the files to the default framework so i can take advantage of the google drive unlimited support for the phone i have. Currently i have to transfer to the phone then upload, which is limited by the ssd size. If i could get that folder exposed i could directly upload from the share on to google drive

I cannot root/unlock my phone as it breaks a few apps i need for work and banking apps, and the developer of magisk is incompetent and refuses to look in to any bug reports regarding the hide feature while still promoting his app mainly for the hide feature.

When I moved from Windows to GNU/Linux I started to learn new things. I can't believe I didn't know about things like pipes. The command prompt was too boring for me. I got a laptop with Endless OS and it was really nice. I'm using GNU/Linux for over a year and I learned about so much stuff that isn't in Windows. The problem is that WIndows users think this is boring and nerdy. Is WIndows for cavemen?

There's now opt-out telemetry. Opt-out is bad practice for a reason; people will assume it's safe, because it's default and keep it enabled (look up Default Effect, Psychology).
Funny enough is that even if you opt-out, it still calls home and you have to unironically block metrics.ubuntu.com in order to make it stop. I think a button "don't send anything" shouldn't send anything.

What does “Silverblue” actually mean?
“Team Silverblue” or “Silverblue” in short doesn’t have any hidden meaning. It was chosen after roughly two months when the project, previously known as Atomic Workstation was rebranded. There were over 150 words or word combinations reviewed in the process.

In the end Silverblue was chosen because it had an available domain as well as the social network accounts.

It's not a big problem but sometimes I find I'll do an action (in i3) thinking I'm on the active window when I'm really not. Enabling title bars would probably help, but I wonder what else I can do.
Maybe I need more contrast between active and inactive colors

the thing wrong with it is that the system seems to point the 64bit to BOTH folders instead of 64bit pointing to the 64bit lib folder and the 32bit pointing to the 32bit folder.
it's
libGL.so.1 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/nvidia-418/libGL.so.1
libGL.so.1 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib32/nvidia-418/libGL.so.1
instead of
libGL.so.1 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/nvidia-418/libGL.so.1
libGL.so.1 (libc6) => /usr/lib32/nvidia-418/libGL.so.1
and I have no idea how to get change this so it finally loads the 32bit openGL libraries

Back when I used i3 I used 3px borders. Colors were #586e75 when inactive and #cb4b16 when active. The idicator colotr was #b58900.
I did use titlebars tho. I feel like their advantages more than make up for the space they occupy.

What you want is compton to replace the terrible Xfce native compositor. Disable the XFCE compositor in settings, and install compton, then start compton and be prepared to have to change some of the settings to make it work properly (mostly switching to the glx backend and changing the vsync settings if necessary).

You can just do

sudo apt install compton
, or you can install it's build dependencies and get compton+crazy good blur from this git, but you have to build it from source.

IMHO systemd critics are very hypocritical autists meme train raiders. The arguments why systemd is bad cover things from being bloated, over hard to audit to probably nsa backdoored. Then these people switch from systemd (GPL'd free software) to a different system without systemd - while still using the same bloated (useless shit like microsoft vm support), hard to audit (proprietary blobs) and probably nsa backdoored (reminder that linus nodded when saying 'no' after being asked if the nsa tried to backdoor linux) linux..
Furthermore these memes went seriously too far. Death threats against someone (no matter if he's an ass or not) who developed free software you can use or not, for gratis, is crossing some serous lines.
tl;dr systemd has up and downsides, but it isnt worse then linux itself

Anthony Lopez
Anthony Lopez

And how it relates specifically to systemd:
I remember seeing pages of threads on the Gentoo forum where the devs had to decide to give into systmed or fork udev because the systemd devs were pulling the same shit.

Thankfully they decided to fork it. And it's only because of that that any non-systemd distros are even allowed to exist today.
Systemd almost did a complete takeover, and most distros that switched to it did not do it by choice.

Is it bad software though? I really don't know. There's debate about whether it abandons "the unix way" and there's new bugs cropping up with it because it's still young (yet we threw our mature software out the window).
But it's definitely faster than other inits. Honestly if I had to guess, the software is probably not that bad.
But I just despise the developers, and I don't trust them to be in control of my PID 1.

lol, you know maybe you're right.
Because if it weren't for the unix way then systemd wouldn't exist today.

That's right. The unix way is a design philosophy that isolates components from each other, allowing them to be easily swapped out for newer/better things.
If we just build everything up with tangled mess of dependencies then it would have been nearly impossible for systemd to have been swapped out in all our distros.

why can't I run chromium on debian without in root and the --no-sandbox flag?

it is just a minimal debian 10 netinst on virtualbox
[/code]sudo apt-get install network-manager xorg openbox xdm pcmanfm tint2 xterm chromium chromium-sandbox --no-install-recommends[/code]
typing in "chromium" or "chromium --no-sandbox" prints

00713/16802.564975:FATAL:chrome_main_delegate.cc(444)] Check failed: process_type.empty(). Unable to get the user data directory for process type: zygote
...
Calling _exit(1). Core file will not be generated.

typing in "sudo chromium" prints
[2526:2526:0713/162020.804400:ERROR:zygote_host_impl_linux.cc(89)] Running as root without --no-sandbox is not supported.

only "sudo chromium --no-sandbox" works. it doesn't matter if i remove chromium-sandbox, it tells me that i can't run chromium without --no-sandbox and it has to be in root.
