Can’t connect between Linux and Windows10 with Samba
Here’s a Forum Post.
This appears to have worked to allow me to see windows 10 systems from Linux Mint 18.3.
I don’t think iptables-persistant is the better way around.
The correct and documented way to enforce advanced iptables commands is described on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UncomplicatedFi … ctionality
Using that info, what solved the problem for me was to add the code bellow and the end of “/etc/ufw/after.rules” and restarting ufw:
Code: Select all
:PREROUTING ACCEPT [728:143746]
:OUTPUT ACCEPT [664:135398]
-A OUTPUT -p udp -m udp --dport 137 -j CT --helper netbios-ns
This way, there’s not need to mess with iptables-persistant and if you installed iptables-persistent you’ll need to uninstall it running sudo “apt-get purge iptables-persistent”.
Use “Sudo xed” in a terminal to get an editor so you can edit the file mentioned above. Copy / Paste the settings above at the end of the after.rules file and save it. You can safely ignore the errors about meta data that xed spits out. It’s trying to save some meta data about the formatting and of course that is nonsense when you are editing system files.
Just sharing it so I can find it from Linux.
I’ve now had some time playing the Warlords of Draenor expansion and I’ve figured out an efficient and productive way to deal with Garrisons. I should mention that I’m playing with mostly Heirlooms: three pieces of armor, weapons and usually a necklace. And I have Draenor Pathfinder, so my Alts fly from the beginning as they finish the Assault on the Dark Portal event.
I would have preferred to level up to 91 with the Alts before going to Draenor. This would allow the Heirlooms to level up significantly. As it turns out, with Heirlooms you reach 91 at the end or shortly after completing the Draenor Starting Event, and there is enough help during the event that it doesn’t matter a lot whether you are 91 when starting it.
I’ve played three Horde toons through Draenor until 101, which is my goal before entering Legion, again to level up the Heirlooms. Along the way I’ve learned some lessons with Garrisons and with the areas to play to level efficiently.
I’m a long time user of the Qt Development Framework. But every few years, it seems to change hands and everything about how to install it changes.
I recently installed it on Linux Mint, and while it looks like it is built in, the install was anything but simple.
But now I’d like to add a feature to one of my personal programs for Windows, so here we go again. I started by trying to look up a recent YouTube video on the subject and while it was only a year or so old, and all the domains were active, it failed miserably after the install in the same way that the Linux install failed. It was unable to find a valid “Kit”. A Kit for Qt is a set of definitions so that the IDE – integrated Development Environment – can find the other tools like compilers, framework libraries, debugger and make program. Well the Youtube video I found had the same problem. The install looked like it worked, but it brought along no tools, framework or valid kits.
Well I’ve solved that, so I’m making a post here so that I remember, and maybe it will help you too.
I have an “Equal Opportunity” network. A few Windows 10 systems and a lot of Linux Mint systems. And I obviously want to share files among my systems.
Over the years and versions, Linux Mint has gotten more friendly when sharing files with Windows systems. Samba has always been a thing, but in recent versions, Linux Mint has made it easier to get it going.
Back when I was using Ubuntu – which Linux Mint is based on – in 2008, it was a pain to get Samba going. But things are better now. Now with Linux Mint 18.2 the dialog above is what you get if you navigate to Home and then try to share your personal folder, presumably for read-only, to the rest of the network. That’s a start. Look even an install button.
To send email across Realms, that is.
So with patch 7.3.0 – Shadows of Argus – , they have added the recognition that you have characters on other realms when you send email. But you can’t actually send email to those realms. Sigh. “You are not prepared!” as the old quote goes.
Sending to other realms gets you “You can’t send to that Realm” and of course if you try to send cross faction you still get “Target is unfriendly”.
Someday we can hope for cross realm, in-account at least, mail.
Addons are Trashed – most of them
In other news most of my addons don’t work.
I was disappointed that BankItems failed. Ark Inventory replaces all inventory displays and I don’t like that much. Gatherer failed, but GatherMate2 works apparently. But of course I lost all the data from Gatherer. At least TomTom and SellJunk works. And there’s an update for Wow-Pro so it works too.
At least I’m prepared to do some leveling with Wow-Pro.

In May of 2018, there
are were problems installing Aion from NCSoft.
A couple of days ago, I tried a clean install on another computer and got the same error. When you try to “report the error” you get another error, probably because the Launcher / Updater can’t reach the web page to report the error. Woops.
Update: I just completed a clean install and it worked without error. Looks like they fixed the problem I saw two days ago.
So here are the steps to install Aion from NCSoft from scratch, and how to get around this problem if you encounter it.
We can hope that they fix the install soon so that this error is not encountered. I mention “Aion from NCSoft” since there are private servers out there. I’ve tried one of them, but I’m not suggesting you install Aion from a private server.
There are a few rules if you want to gold farm in Guild Wars. These are completely different from the rules in Guild Wars 2.
First you need to remember that the drops are divided among the members of the party, even heroes and mercenaries. So, the fewer members of the party there are, the better. There are “leechers” which are members of the party that stay far away from the action, and allegedly improve the drops. But they aren’t helping you kill mobs. So if you are solo farming, they aren’t useful. Do you have friends who don’t want to play, just stand around?
Second, you can employ pets and spirit helpers with no loot penalty. So a Ranger / Ritualist or a Ritualist/ Ranger seems like a good build to use for solo farming. Here’s the build that I use.
Update: What you really want to do however, if you are level 20 with strong heroes, is vanquish the area in hard mode. See below. But back to our story in Normal Mode.

CVS X10 can create a 2560×1440 video. To do that, just create a custom profile. The 2560×1440 choice is in the list.
Nice that the new version keeps all my CPUs busy. The older X6 does not.
Well that wasn’t as hard as I expected. One Meta-Event run this morning and I completed my Leystone Light Armor – except for the helm.
As it turns out, after the Meta Event, Noxious Pods show up in all the camps, and the Way Points are active, so you can port between them and collect more than 20 pods for about 40 Crystalline Ore. This morning in one run, I got a Leystone Boot Box and enough Ore to buy Gloves. So with what I got yesterday, I now have a complete set except for the helm.
Here are some shots of where the Noxious Pods are around the camp, for an example. They are not that hard to find if you hold the CTRL key down while you pan around.
I am getting sick and tired of signing UP for every site. And I don’t want to expose my facebook / google or some other identity to every site I use. My lastpass vault has 100s of sites in it. Just try and ask a question on a forum and you have to SIGN UP on that site.
And then visit your email address to confirm a link. Look at this nonsense.
That’s the last link I got to confirm. Looks like they dumped the whole cookie they have for me in hex and that’s the link to confirm. That’s enough to be the entire context of what they might know, or they think they know about me. Rather than a hex of a database link or some other short unique number – like 64 bits long. They have this trash.
Save me from this, SQRL.
