    What's the difference between a PC Linux and Server Linux

    "root access" you keep using that word, i do not think it means what you think it means. Just pick up ubuntu, buy some books or courses and just start learning. I do the same thing as you, when i come up to a new technology I imagine its hyper complicated and i go at it as if it were a bomb...

    What's the difference between a PC Linux and Server Linux

    There is absolutely no difference between a server and a computer other than its role. If you were to download a server edition of an operating system it will usually be a bloatless version running core services and during installation might as ask you want to install services like mail, ftp...

    Cloud printer on Linux

    Changing files extention

    well typically the only difference between distros are, whats installed. So if you don't have rename on your distro you could just install it.

    Cloud printer on Linux

    maybe try sudo in front of that command. also if gcp-cups-connector worked i would run which gcp-cups-connector and find the filepath, go into that directory and see if -util is there. if it is, you could run "./gcp-cups-connector-util init" from there i would imagine.

    Linux Terminal for Learning

    https://www.udemy.com/linux-administration-bootcamp/ this course is $12 and was pretty informative. I would say the terminal tends to be more functional than a desktop environment most of the time for me as a sysadmin. my go to tools are primarily terminal based, vim, nmap, tshark, genact(when...

    Why is Terminal automatically entering my command after pasting? How can i solve this problem?

    This may not be helpful, but i highly recommend you not copy commands, 1. you wont learn them as fast, typing them out every time concretes them into memory. 2. you may accidentally do something you didn't intend to because you misunderstood the command as you glossed over. 2.5. sometimes...

    Why is Terminal automatically entering my command after pasting? How can i solve this problem?

    okay, i tested it. If you just copy the text only and not the entire line, it will paste without resolving if you copy the entire line, it will return once you paste. make sure only the text is highlighted and not the entire line.

    do you copy the whole line or just the text with no white spaces at the end?

    Why is Terminal automatically entering my command after pasting? How can i solve this problem?

    What are you copying? if you're copying a line from a terminal, i've noticed that if you copy the whole line then there is a return in there and it causes the paste to immediately resolve. This may vary between terminal emulators, but i would try copying different content to make sure its not...

    Looks like you might be copying a return or another line when you copy. This might help though. Prior to pasting type a # then paste your line. It will not execute and you can remove the # and hit enter when the modifications have been completed.

    NVR Disk Not Mounting

    You might try "df -h" in the command line to see if linux sees any data on the drives. Additionally I agree with Rob, try mounting the drive first.

    LInux Mint Kernels

    Typically most distros will offer a "LTS(long term support)" version every couple of iterations. LTS is favorable for developers and businesses because they know they can work in that environment for a long time. As a single user looking for cutting edge software and support you could enjoy the...
