Having my user folders symlinked to my secondary 2tb hard drive is causing my computer to lock up

18.04 Secondary Monitor on left not receiving signal

N00B here:

I have a Dell XPS 15 running stock ubuntu 18.04 I have a secondary monitor which is my old Sony KDL-32XBR6

Attaching the second monitor works fine IF I leave the Secondary monitor on the right of my laptop in Display Settings. However, if I move it to the left, then the Sony tells me No Signal.

Issues I have noticed:
1 – Ubuntu tells me I have a Sony 72″ – How can I change that? 2 – It doesn’t matter if the Sony or the Laptop are set as Primary 3 – Occasionally the green “Apply” button in Display settings will disappear so I can check every resolution to make sure that it isn’t a resolution issue.

Any help gratefully received.

Secondary display in dual display system not being used

After a recent reinstall of Ubuntu to get full system encryption working, I haven’t been able to get my secondary display to work. I think it did when I first installed using an 18.03 install iso I had. But, when I updated using apt, it just hasn’t worked since. My system: Asus Crosshair VII Hero motherboard, AMD Ryzen 7 2700X, Asus Geforce GTX 1060 graphics, 32GB DDR4-3200 G.Skill memory, HP EX920 1TB M.2 boot drive, 3TB WD Green data drive.

I have run nvidia-xconfig. Still no luck in activating the secondary display.

Secondary HDD keeps spinning on regular intervals without any obvious reason

I’m using Ubuntu 19.04. I have it on a SSD drive but I have a secondary non-SSD HDD drive too. I’m not using that drive for anything at the moment yet sometimes it keeps spinning up and for long periods of time. Sometimes these sessions can only be ended by resetting the machine, because it gets unresponsive. Other times I can switch to tty3 for example and then switch back to gui, which makes the spinning cease and the PC works as expacted. Then after a while it may start spinning again, resulting in the same cycle as described before.

It does not happen to often actually, but recently it has started getting on my nerves, because I’m not using that secondary HDD for anything yet there is an exorbitant activity on it.

What can cause this? Any suggestions?

Sharepoint 2013 On Premise – Break inheritance on a secondary wiki pages library

I’m working in the support team for SHP 2013 On Premise and I’m a bit stuck on an issue that a user raised. I didn’t find anywhere exactly the same topic, so in case I missed it, I’m sorry for posting this again.

The structure of the site collection is: – parent site (used by multiple departments) – sub-site (with unique autorisations to only one department) – in the sub-site above there are 2 wiki pages libraries: one should inherit the same autorisations as the sub-site, the other one should have unique permissions.

When trying to break inheritance on the 2nd wiki pages library it works, but whatever group I delete or add to the library autorisations, it’s mirroring in the sub-site autorisations too, as if the break inheritance feature didn’t work.

Now I’m currently giving unique autorisations per each page in the 2nd library, individually, but it is a bit of a struggle because it’s not 1-2 pages, there are a lot of them. Is there an easier way of doing this?

Any idea would be great! Thank you!

Does the Symbiotic Entity damage apply to a creature hit by the secondary damage of Green Flame Blade?

For a Circle of Spores Druid, they are able to add 1d6 Poison Damage to their Melee Weapon Attacks while their Symbiotic Entity feature is active.

At 2nd level, you gain the ability to channel magic into your spores. […] While this feature is active, you gain the following benefits:

  • […]
  • Your melee weapon attacks deal an extra 1d6 poison damage to any target they hit.

These benefits last for 10 minutes, until you lose all these temporary hit points, or until you use your Wild Shape again.

Circle of Spores, Guildmaster’s Guide to Ravnica, pg. 27

When a [melee weapon] attack from Green Flame Blade hits a target, the spell causes an adjacent creature to also take damage:

[…] On a hit, the target suffers the attack’s normal effects, and green fire leaps from the target to a different creature of your choice that you can see within 5 feet of it. The second creature takes fire damage equal to your spellcasting ability modifier.

Green Flame Blade, Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide, pg. 143

For the purposes of Symbiotic Entity (or any other feature that adds damage to “any targets hit by Melee Weapon Attacks”), does the extra damage (on the second target) associated with Green Flame Blade count as being hit by that damage, making them eligible for the extra poison damage from Symbiotic Entity, or does being “hit” by an effect necessarily involve an Attack Roll?

How does the secondary effect of Heat Metal work?

This question is a more straightforward combination of my two previous (hopefully soon to be closed) questions here and here.

heat metal states:

If a creature is holding or wearing the object and takes the damage from it, the creature must succeed on a Constitution saving throw or drop the object if it can. If it doesn’t drop the object, it has disadvantage on attack rolls and ability checks until the start of your next turn…

I am unsure how this disadvantage mechanic functions as a whole. When do you suffer from it and in what ways (if any) can you end it?

For example:
What happens if you fail the save but cannot drop the object? Does dropping the object later, on your own turn, do anything?
What happens if you succeed on the save? Does dropping the object later, on your turn, do anything?

I would like it to be assumed that you cannot willingly drop a weapon when it is not your own turn as shown in This Q/A; however, heat metal can still force you to drop the weapon.

I would also like it to be assumed that the saving throw is not optional as shown in This Q/A.
