The following tutorial will cover how to enable the NTP client on Ubuntu. When working with Linux servers, the system time must be accurate. The best way to do that is by using the Network Time Protocol.
The first step is to install the NTP client.
sudo apt install ntp
Before we begin configuration, let’s back up the default NTP client config. We will use today’s date in the command.
A few months back I did a video on Fusion Terror’s YouTube channel. Fusion has actually been a summer student at my current place of employment for the last year. I had mentioned a few times how easy it is to get Node working in a Docker container.
I asked him if his audience would be interested in this type of content and he said yes! Away I went to film my first YouTube video.
Took me an entire morning to get things right but here is the final product.

I keep reflecting back on this and thinking about all the other ideas I have for videos. Maybe it’s time to start my own thing?
Most Linux distribution include auto mounting for different file system types. Specific distributions, you need to mound some file systems your self. The following commands will allow you to mount different file system types.
To list all partitions attached to the system, use the following commands.
First thing, create a mount point for this new file system.
You can create this folder anywhere on the system. Most distributions mount all drives to /media.
Synergy let you share a single mouse and keyboard across multiple computers. In the following example, thewall is going to have our server and laptopnew is going to be our second computer. thewall, is to the right of laptopnew. thewall is also our linux box running Linux Mint (gnome). laptopnew is running Windows 7 x64.
First thing we need to do is install Synergy on our two machines. On the linux box run:
sudo aptitude install synergy
Next we need to install Synergy on our second computer. The version of Synergy in the Ubuntu repos is version 1.3 so we need to install that version. Click here for the download list.
Once you have it installed on both machines we need to create our configuration file. The following is an example of my configuration file.
left = laptopnew
right = thewall
screenSaverSync = false
For this to work correctly you must use the hostnames of both machines. Now we can open a terminal and run:
This will start the server; next we want to hit the start button on the client. You should now be able to move your mouse between the two computers! Synergy also allows you to copy and paste (text only) between the machines.
To get the synergy server to run on startup we can just add it to the gnome startup. Menu -> Preferences -> Start Up Applications.
The next time you reboot Synergy should start automatically. That concludes this tutorial, if you have any questions or comments please leave them below.
