  1. [ubuntu] Re: Mass rename documents based on first line of file content?

    Simply using head will just get the magic numbers. Not very useful indeed. The tool docx2txt (available from the repositories in a package of the same name) is supposed to convert docx files to plain...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Can run Ubuntu but not Ubuntu flavors. Why?

    A black screen usually means that it does boot, but because of a broken graphics driver doesn't show anything on screen. Maybe one automatically installed proprietary graphics drivers and the other...
  3. Re: installing the glossaries package for TeX

    Because the dependencies of glossaries have changed. It happens occasionally.

    etoolbox and glossaries are in the repositories for 14.04 (package texlive-latex-extra). Maybe not for 14.10? But I...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Dkpg error but the steps provided do not work.

    You need two dashes in front of configure, not one. By using one dash you say you want the options c, o, n, f, i, g, u, r and e. This comes from the older convention that single letter options can be...

    Re: accounting software for lubuntu

    Everything that can be installed on Ubuntu can also be installed, in the same way, on Lubuntu.

    (One catch, sometimes you need an awful lot of new dependencies, but that's mostly an issue when...

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Upgrade winxp to win 7 on dualboot ubuntu without deleting boot

    Installing or upgrading Windows is likely to wipe the boot loader and make Ubuntu inaccessible. The easiest way to repair is using Boot-Repair. But make backups of Ubuntu just in case, as I have...
  8. Re: Upgrade 10.10 to 14.04.5 via Unetbooting

    I don't get it. 10.10 is old, dead & buried and has been unsupported for 3 years, 14.04.5 will be released in July 2016 and no direct upgrade from 10.10 to 14.04 is supported. I suggest a clean...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Login credentials correct, but login page redisplayed

    It seems that you don't have write permission in your own home directory. Maybe you can still login on the console (ctrl+alt+F2, return to the GUI with ctrl+alt+F7), I'm not sure about that. Else...
  10. Re: How do I install software from a downloaded zip file?

    A .deb file can also be installed from command line using dpkg.

    If the software comes in some kind of archive format, there are no standard instructions. Unpack the archive and look for a README...

    [xubuntu] Re: Disk full = Unable to boot. Why???

    As I wrote in post #7, by default a non-root process cannot fill the hard drive up to the point where Ubuntu cannot boot any longer, because 5% of the disk space is reserved for root. Either the file...

    @buzzingrobot: Thanks, that helped. I tried a couple of Courier-like fonts in abiword – see attachment. It seems the OP is after the last example, which has a short dash (shorter than the en-dash)...

    Re: Transfering fonts

    Not really. Courier is a free font released in 1955 and one of the original 4 required fonts for Adobe PostScript from 1982 (along with Times, Helvetica and Symbol, and some italic/slanted/bold...

    Re: ubuntu 14.04 gnome vs ubuntu 14.04 unity

    Unity is the heaviest and therefore slowest of the available desktop environments on Ubuntu, but if you have modern hardware you're unlikely to notice. It's just which one fits best in your workflow....

    [SOLVED] Re: 32 or 64 bit?

    There are as many opinions on partitioning as there are Linux users. I'd say that on a 320GB drive 8GB (2.5% of the disk space) is not going to make any difference. So it doesn't matter when you make...

    [xubuntu] Re: Extended Characters Via Keyboard

    Several possibilities.

    Choose a keyboard layout that directly supports all characters you often need, either via a third level chooser or dead accent keys.
    OR
    Use ctrl+shift+u, hex code. Find...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Updated windows 10 technical preview, messed up grub. How can i fix without reins

    Your Ubuntu is gone. I assume the Ubuntu ext4 partition used to be in the extended partition, just before the swap partition. Maybe Windows decided to shrink the extended partition and not knowing...

    [SOLVED] Re: 32 or 64 bit?

    According to this site (http://ark.intel.com/products/27255) the T7200 is 64 bit. I'd be surprised to learn anyone actually sold computers with 4GiB memory and only a 32 bit CPU in any sizeable...

    Re: Re-Password

    It's possible to reset the password, but this won't help you getting updates. 13.04 is no longer supported. So we're talking about a computer with an outdated OS, an unknown and therefore not to be...

    [xubuntu] Re: Disk full = Unable to boot. Why???

    By default 5% of the disk space is reserved for root (that is, if less than 5% is available, only root is allowed to write). This is just to guarantee enough headroom to boot a system and clear some...

    Re: problem installing gimp on trusty

    Gimp 2.8.10 is in the trusty repository, so no need to use a PPA. Unless you really want version 2.8.14. I guess there is a problem because you now have multiple repositories providing the same...

    The OS that controls grub, will put itself at the top of the list. To make kernel upgrades work, it's easiest to let the most used Linux system control grub. The best thing to do is making Ubuntu in...
