Re: There's a lack of Qtractor video tutorials..

I've just started watching that tutorial series. In the first video he showed how you can just right click a window and set it to stay on top. That'll just become default behaviour for me when I open a new plugin now so not a big deal once it's burned into my brain :wink: I don't know why I didn't t...

Re: Can't take ownership of HDD's as root

@milo - Yeh it's been a gradual journey to get here. Definitely took me a few goes over the years! Mint is quite easy these days and it has a really cool backup utility called Timeshift (Kinda like System Restore on Windows). This utility alone made all the difference this time round. I used to rein...

Re: Can't take ownership of HDD's as root

I'll try that command again to find out what auto-mounts the drives so I can try and reset it. None of the commands I've posted will help find out what software auto-mounts usb drives on your system.To find out about the software that auto-mounts usb drives on your system use google. There may be g...

Re: Need help getting wine asio to work in a wine prefix

I do not use wine asio, never had a need to do so. I guess you need that because you are using a Windows DAW. Yes. I'm currently playing around with Qtractor but I'm still relying on FL Studio until I can find something I like on Linux. I'll probably never stop using FL Studio either way because I'...

Re: Can't take ownership of HDD's as root

I don't see an exfat drive in /proc/mounts What do we know? (1) It used to work. (2) The dastardly Photorec came along, changed the mount options and now it doesn't work. Solution : reset the application that auto-mounts usb drives to its defaults, which hopefully is how it was before Photorec. Yeh...

Re: There's a lack of Qtractor video tutorials..

@thebutant - Yeh to be honest, one of the things that attracts me to it is the fact that the GUI doesn't have that bare minimum Windows 95 look that a lot of these Linux DAW's have lol.. I know the look of a program doesn't mean it doesn't function well, but man, it definitely makes it hard for me t...

Need help getting wine asio to work in a wine prefix

I've been trying my best to solve this one for hours tonight but I've had to admit defeat for now. Hopefully someone can help! First, here's the previous situation when this was all working correctly: I run Linux Mint 19 (x64). I installed the kxstudio repos for an easy way to install wine asio. I r...

Re: Can't take ownership of HDD's as root

So. I ran LuckyBackup as 'super-user' and my backups worked fine again. So it looks like I was right with my initial idea - the backups weren't working properly because I no longer own the drives. So basically, if I can just get ownership of the drives again I can go back to what I was previously do...

Re: Can't take ownership of HDD's as root

1. Root can change the ownership. It's as simple as that. There's no 'operation not permitted' for root regarding this, basically. 2. By 'clean' I meant if the device is already used or some condition like this. You printed it in your reply: "fuse: mountpoint is not empty". Eg. it's not clean. The ...

Re: Can't take ownership of HDD's as root

I also get operation not permitted: chown mevla.mevla /mnt/disk/ chown: changing ownership of '/mnt/disk/': Operation not permitted This is because I did the command as a regular user. It has to be done as root. "mountpoint is not empty" That's because it was already used. It has to be done clean. ...

Re: Can't take ownership of HDD's as root

Make the mount point belonging to user <name>. For user joe, a mount point of /mnt/disk and an external USB drive of /dev/sde1 : (as root) chown joe.joe /mnt/disk Then mount the drive still as root: mount /dev/sde1 Then open another console and as regular user: cd /mnt/disk touch test If the empty ...

Re: Can't take ownership of HDD's as root

This said I have no idea of 'lucky backup' (sounds like a lottery :) ) and use rsync in a script file to do backups after mounting the external USB as root. The script executes as a normal user since of course the external USB drive is owned by the user. It would be a folly to make a backup drive o...

Re: Can't take ownership of HDD's as root

I'm not sure what you mean by 'take'. If you can write a file then all would seem to be well. Take ownership I meant. My backup program has been stalling and returning errors about permissions ever since this issue appeared. I cannot do any backups right now because of this. I've checked the drive ...

Re: Can't take ownership of HDD's as root

Damn it. Spoke too soon! I forgot about trying to take ownership of the drives again. I tried via GUI and terminal methods once more but still got "Operation not permitted" :( So, my drives are mounted with RW access now. I can create new folders and files in them so I assume so anyway. But, root is...
