  1. Re: Can GUI appications be automated through scripts?

    The short answer is yes, because that's what automated testing software has to do.

    The long answer is - you didn't explain what you wanted to accomplish (the what). Instead, you asked for the...

    Re: Can I tweak IcedTea?

    You are going to have to be a lot more specific about the problems you are seeing, and since the icedtea plugin is so close to the Sun plugin, that's probably not the problem anyway. I suspect...

    See, I knew you were going to say that.
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Important: community effort to harden Ubuntu

    Yeah, with that list of plugins, you aren't that safe and secure. Every one of those has potential exploitable vulnerabilities, and all can be accessed by any web page you visit.

    Re: Installing flash to play videos in steam?

    Adobe no longer supports Flash for Linux, and is not releasing updates. Best bet is to uninstall the Flash player from your computer, because it won't be long before the hackers figure out how to use...

    Missing from the security wiki is the suggestion to turn off most or all browser plugins. Flash is no longer supported in any browser on Linux other than Chrome, where it is being specially...

    [all variants] Re: Syncing /home via internet

    DON'T DO IT! Some configuration can be synced this way, but not all. And the stuff that can't be synced this way is likely to end up corrupting user folders so you can't log in.

    If you are sure you trust that PPA, you can try running the update from the command line.

    sudo aptitude update

    [ubuntu] Re: AM I protected against keyloggers ?

    I don't know if the number is correct, but it's been going around the newsgroups lately that something like 1 in 4 Windows machines is infected with malware. Windows is just a tempting target,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Distributed backup?

    I am going with the theory that the best backup is one that is simple and easy to verify.

    rsync can be used to duplicate file systems at a point in time, or
    tar can be used to make incremental...

    [ubuntu] Re: Unable to use Asunder to rip a CD

    Have you tried Thoggen? It's relatively simple to use, and if it doesn't work it usually indicates you need to install ubuntu-restricted-extras or some such packages. Works for most DVDs, but not...

    [ubuntu] Re: Updates - EWWWWW!!!

    12.10 is good too, but the support doesn't keep for 5 years. So you can't keep it on 12.10 over time - you really must upgrade every couple of years - or else.

    Who am I to judge? I am still...

    [ubuntu] Re: Laptop Recommend/will this one work?

    If there is a decent return policy on the laptop, just go for it. You'll know within a couple of hours of plugging in the USB stick if it's going to work or not.

    Re: Ubuntu Spyware

    Seems like flame-bait. ;)

    Stallman has a point, but I think he is overstating the case. Canonical is trying something, the community will respond, and we'll see where it goes. The feature he is...

    [ubuntu] Re: Updates - EWWWWW!!!

    You can try GParted, which will allow you to remove the old partition and resize the new one. It is powerful enough to wipe out everything you have, though, so be careful and back up everything that...

    [ubuntu] Re: Updates - EWWWWW!!!

    Most of the information so far has been good. You need to be aware, though, that not doing updates is a bad idea. 12.04 is an LTS release, so the emphasis is on stability. Almost all the updates you...

    Re: Jetty 6.1.22 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS?

    Check out your Java versions. Make sure, since this is an upgrade and you had things that depend on Java installed, that you don't have some settings that are pointing to a Java runtime that doesn't...

    Re: Java - Downgrade to 1.6.0_35

    If you want to use Oracle Java, it should be easy. The hard part is navigating the site to find the distribution you want. But basically, you extract the files and run Java.

  19. Re: OpenJava is there still limitations on use of AWT ?

    OpenJDK 6 and OpenJDK 7 are nearly identical to Sun Java 6 and 7, down to the last detail. And OpenJDK is fully open-sourced, and has been for a few years. The only API difference I have been able...
