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

However, I found a command from here which I've modified for my system: https://askubuntu.com/questions/333287/external-hard-disk-read-only Actually looks like it might be working and my backup...

I tried that just now but it's the same results.

I suspect Photorec may have made the drives Read Only the other day. Any idea how I would check and change that?

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

I think that the series of Qtractor video's from 2017 by Demonic Sweaters on Youtube are very good. Link . I don't know if he covers the piano roll good enough for you. Good luck with Qtractor: it's a really great program! :) Yeh I've already tried watching those ones. I didn't find them too good t...

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

Ok. So I just tried: sudo chown myusername:myusername mountpoint I obviously used my actual username and mountpoint for the drive when I did that. The result was: chown: changing ownership of 'mountpoint': Operation not permitted This is what happened before. Is there another command I can try? Chee...

I believe so. But to be honest, I forgot the exact command I used which is why I didn't mention it in my opening post. I'm actually just looking up some commands for this now so I can try again. I will post back with results. Thanks :wink:

[Abandoned] Can't take ownership of exFAT HDD's

I've abandoned this issue. Thanks for the help! Original post below: I recently seem to have lost ownership of my external, exFAT formatted USB HDD's. Root owns them now. I recently ran Photorec to look for some deleted files and noticed this issue after that. But I also downgraded my kernel too so...

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

I did notice that shortcuts section yesterday. Maybe I can just add my own shortcut there. Not sure.. I'll try and just learn the program first I suppose, then worry about these things later :P Cheers.

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

Ok. I will keep that in mind! Do you know if there's a keyboard shortcut to toggle that on and off? I'm just reading through the user guide, btw. I'm going to give this program a good shot as I really want to ditch using Wine for music stuff and Qtractor has been one of the most appealing programs o...

There's a lack of Qtractor video tutorials..

Qtractor is a Linux DAW that I want to give more of a chance before I finally decide whether or not to stick to using my Windows DAW in Wine, or make my full transition into Linux for music. The problem is, there just seems to be such a lack of good video tutorials for it. I've checked out everythin...

Thank you for sharing this! After playing with the demos, I've just been waiting for some kind of discount on Satin and Twangstrom before pulling the trigger. And coincidentally I'm selling some gear that could cover the cost of the discounted bundle... good timing! Yeh these are some nice discount...

Re: Roland r 26 detected, but not working

Just a quick tip with Linux. Plug & Play compatible audio devices usually have better luck working on Linux as they don't require drivers (Things that don't require drivers on Mac will probably work on Linux). For things that need drivers, sometimes they exist on Linux and may even built into the ke...

Re: [Solved] Trouble installing Wine Staging on Mint 19.1

Death, thanks for posting this thread. I recently migrated back to Mint a few weeks ago and ran into this same problem, but never attempted to solve it because I've been trying to stop using WINE (it's a crutch in my audio workflow). I had the same issue of mentally blocking out the "i386" part of ...

Re: [Solved] Trouble installing Wine Staging on Mint 19.1

Yeh it seems to be ok now. I've taken notes so I can hopefully just resolve this kind of thing on my own in future. Cheers.
