Hi! I use Ubuntu for general desktop computing, and I use an Ubuntu home server. I might just be able to help with some things. :) I'm a member of the Ubuntu Ohio LoCo, and I'm looking to increase my overall involvement in the community.

comment Deja-Dup Backup Failed - Invalid data - SHA 1 hash mismatch for file
Your comments about the lack of verification in deja-dup are appreciated. To think that 5% of your backup files were unreadable is pretty disturbing. I will look more into how to use duplicity from the terminal for backups. Thanks for the recommendations!

comment Plex Manager can't read files on external HD (automonted)
@user193537 - Are you trying to view the videos on your Ubuntu machine or on another machine on the network? Either way, XBMC could be an alternative. XBMC is available in the Ubuntu Software Center or as a free download for other platforms. Within XBMC, you would just need to tell it to add the folder in the external drive (or its network location, if accessing from another machine) as a source of videos.

comment How do I add a network drive to Plex?
@JoeCallahan - The problem might be that it's mounting as root so only root can write to it - like this ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1409720 - we can try that fix. So enter in terminal sudo id user_name (where user_name is your usual username) . Your output should be something like this uid=1000(user_name) gid=1000(user_name) groups=... - take that UID and GID add them to the line in /etc/fstab, so it looks like //192.168.0.13/Plex /media/Plex cifs defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0 - if that still doesn't work, try using the UID and GID for sudo id plex

comment Chromium is having difficulties in showing some web pages
Can you make this happen on any webpage you visit, or is it limited to certain websites? I had an issue in the past that only affected certain sites that was solved by clearing the cache in my ~ directory. / Also, could you share the visual settings you have set up for the Ubuntu VM? that could have something to do with it.
