    [SOLVED] Re: Update apt-cacher cache automatically

    Right, this is working fairly smoothly now.

    To turn on the apt-cacher pre-caching functionality, you need to edit /etc/cron.daily/apt-cacher

    [SOLVED] Re: Update apt-cacher cache automatically

    OK, apt-cacher does support this, but I haven't found any documentation on how to do it yet.
    The appropriate script is /usr/share/apt-cacher/apt-cacher-precache.pl

    There is a cron job for...

    [ubuntu] Re: Remote desktop viewer help

    Awesome. SSH is ridiculously useful.



    You can SSH from another network, but you'll probably need to set up port-forwarding on your router. SSH uses port 22 by default, but you can always change...

    [ubuntu] Re: Remote desktop viewer help

    Why run the risk of a full-blown SSH server if it is unnecessary? Wouldn't the simple web interface that Transmission provides be a simpler, more "sandboxed" solution?

    If it is just for Transmission, you can do it by switching on the Transmission Web Interface. Have a look at the Web tab in the Transmission Settings. Then you can access & control Transmission via a...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Live Messenger doesn't work. Is there something to do with the router?

    Are you running it with wine? Windows messenger has very poor results on the appdb, so you probably won't get very far.

    Sounds like you're not connected to the internet, but apt-get is trying to download everything from the online repositories.

    Are you trying to install stuff from a CD, or the online repos?

    [ubuntu] Re: Noob question about txt editors

    Just a quick note:

    You should really be using gksudo, not sudo when opening GUI programmes like gedit. Keep sudo for command-line stuff only.
  17. [ubuntu] Re: System is hosed (but still running) How do I recover?

  18. [ubuntu] Re: Installed 9.04, not seeing entire drive on DUA?

    That's because hard drive manufacturers don't actually use the same scale as an operating system does. The HDD people calculate 500GB as 500 x 1000000000 bytes.

    Now, computers work in multiples of...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: System is hosed (but still running) How do I recover?

    Did you install smbfs? You definitely shouldn't need to run Nautilus as root, but as an aside, if you ever do run any graphical program as su, you should use gksudo, not sudo.
  20. [ubuntu] Re: System is hosed (but still running) How do I recover?

    What's stopping you from accessing the windows share? You might need to install smbfs while using the livecd.

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install smbfs



    Depends on how the drives...
