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 -> http://www.spotht.com/2010/07/install-ushare-upnp-and-dlna-media.html
if you get a segmentation fault (ushare -d) then compile and install it
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Xbox360Media
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 -> http://www.unixmen.com/insall-vsftpd-in-ubuntu/


sudo apt-get install vsftpd
sudo vi /etc/vsftpd.conf
Add lines
anon_root=/var/ftp
write_enable=YES
anon_upload_enable=YES

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