Re: Backing up raspberry Pi4

I suspect the reason incremental backup of disk images is not popular on Linux is because standard tools like rsync work well enough. There are rsync based incremental backup tools for Linux though.

Window snapping on Raspberry Pi (4)

I am used to Windows and Gnome 3 window snapping to half the screen if you drag the window to the edge of the monitor. Is this feature possible using the Raspberry PI's default window manager, and if so, how? I don't mind using an addin. Alternatively can one run Gnome 3 on the RPI under Raspbian?

Re: VNC working one way but not the other

Sometimes I setup Vino on Ubuntu machines. My Mac Desktop only connects if I tweak some Gnome resource file to disable encryption and assert the use of login+password in Vino's prefs somewhere else.
