Linux Mint with Cinnamon

Posted: 2012-08-24 in Linux

Is without a doubt the best linux distro i have used

Here are my notes on things i keep forgetting

1. uShare -> dlna sharing software ->
if you get a segmentation fault (ushare -d) then compile and install it
you might need to sudo apt-get install checkinstall also
after you have compiled it uninstall and reinstall it again using apt-get
configure it with
sudo dpkg-reconfigure ushare

2. Transmisson -> torrent software -> comes preinstalled

3. vsftpd -> ftp server ->

sudo apt-get install vsftpd
sudo vi /etc/vsftpd.conf
Add lines

mkdir /var/ftp
mkdir /var/ftp/upload
sudo chmod 777 /var/ftp/upload
sudo service vsftpd restart
