Yes, it does look as if encfs is no longer maintained. It is in Ubuntu 14.04 because it still is in Debian wheezy. It has been removed from Debian jessie, so should be gone from future versions of Ubuntu. Like the OP in this Debian bug report, I do not have the competence to judge this, but I recommend that you do not use it unless you have to, given the ...

You should use 127.0.0.1, the so-called loopback address. Unlike 0.0.0.0, it is a valid IPv4 address. While it is true that this mitigates some tracking issues, this does not improve security per se. There are a gazillion sites that track you, and you can't keep up editing your hosts file. To prevent tracking, you'd better use plugins like AdblockPlus and ...

631 is used by CUPS (the print service daemon). 445 is used by Samba (used to share files with Windows PCs over the network). 139 is used by nmbd, part of the Samba setup. 25 and 527 are SMTP ports. You have a mail server running on your system. 53 is used by the DNS server. 111 is used for Remote Procedure Calls. Some services depend on this. 80, of ...

If an application doesn't require root to install, then the application is in fact "safer" (I quoted safer because, in general, an application can still be harmful if you don't know what it does whether you used sudo or not. e.g. Maybe it will sniff around your home directory and start uploading some confidential data, and you wouldn't need root access for ...

Assuming you have permission to use sudo on your desktop, then you have enough permissions to view anything connected to it. You also, of course, have authority to change the permissions on the disk, if you so desire. It depends on what you want to do. If you simply want to access the data, but not use the drive any more, you can mount the drive, then ...

From the output of lsblk, it turns out the partition is already mounted, in /media/c436695a-0830-4e33-b6c6-61a54d801ab1. The output of ls -la /media made clear why you did not have access to the partition; owner (root) and group (www-data) have full permissions (rwx) , others (like you) have no permission at all (---), that includes read access. What you ...

www-data is the user that the apache2 webserver runs as in Ubuntu. (Usually that user has a UID of 33, the number you see.) So files created using the webserver are owned by that file. When you create a file thus, the umask of the server comes into play and any permissions you set are controlled by the umask. You can work around this in three ways: Use ...

Try changing the owner and group of that directory to www-data and setting permissions for owner/group to rwx sudo chown -R www-data:wwwdata /var/www/html/assets/img sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www/html/assets/img

The game is installed in a directory owned by the user who installs it and runs with privileges from that user. For this method to become to start to be a problem you need to be asked the admin password and provide it. So never run this program with sudo or as root. never install this program with sudo or as root. when prompted for an admin password ...

The fix that I finally found is the answer in this thread: Can't connect to WPA2 Enterprise PEAP. I will sum it up here. All I did was add the auth-alg=open to the file /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/MYCONNECTION, at the bottom of the [802-11-wireless-security] section of the document. I hope this helps more people than just me.

The project lives, and is working on a 2.0 revision: https://github.com/vgough/encfs "EncFS has been dormant for a while. I've started cleaning up in order to try and provide a better base for a version 2, but whether EncFS flowers again depends upon community interest. In order to make it easier for anyone to contribute, it is moving a new home on Github. ...

This is a simple misunderstanding as there are many types of software in the software center. There is Free and Open Source software, that is not only free but licensed under a open source license. Then there is software available to buy this is usually proprietary but sometimes open source as a developer can make it easier to access by putting a lot of ...
