You should make sure your both machines are on the same 'logical' network and you could ping each other. If your local IP adress is, for example, '192.168.0.1' then your remote machine should be on that same subnet e.g. '192.168.0.2'. Find out the adress which is on the same subnet using ifconfig on the remote machine, then try to ping this adress from your ...

An even more general approach than those already presented - I have the following in my ~/.bashrc: open() { for file in "$@" do xdg-open "$file" > /dev/null 2>&1 if [ "$?" != 0 ]; then echo "$file"": Failed to open" else echo "$file"": Opened successfully" fi done } xdg-open is a useful program that opens ...

As well as nautilus . you can also do: xdg-open . and it will do the same as if you double clicked a file in nautilus. Which also means you can open a spreadsheet in LibreOffice with xdg-open mysheet.ods etc. I have it aliased to xopen for slightly quicker typing by putting the following in my .bashrc alias xopen=xdg-open

If you type ALT+F2 and enter gksudo nautilus in the box that appears, you get a GUI file manager running as root. The ALT+F2 brings up a box allowing you to ask for any command directly, without a terminal - very useful at times. I mostly use it when I want kill This nautilus will allow you do the job - but be careful not do do anything else in it as all ...

That file you are referring to is probably just a file full of zeros or random data that bleachbit uses to wipe free space. If bleachbit fails or is turned off before wiping is complete the huge file remains. It is safe to run the command "rm -rf" A similar thing will happen when you overwrite free space manually using the "dd" command. "dd if=/dev/zero ...

Without the added lines, it acted the same way still, only ...
