    [ubuntu] HP DV6 Trackpad - enable multitouch?

    I believe I managed to enable multitouch on my HP DV6-1030us trackpad after a previous install of Lucid Lynx but I don't remember what I had to download and/or config. I just re-installed from...

    RevMedia - Anyone have the package?

    This past weekend RunRev upgraded and renamed the packages for their "Revolution" IDE for OSX, Windows, and Linux. It's now called "LiveCode". Until this change, they had a freely downloadable...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: How do I alter a file inside /etc directory?

    Sorry; I discovered my error. I wasn't typing things properly. What I did to fix things was:

    sudo cp (and I dragged the file in here so the path was correct) {space} (and I dragged the destination...
  4. [ubuntu] How do I alter a file inside /etc directory?

    I've copied a ".conf" file from /etc to my Desktop and edited it using gedit. I then used the "rm" command to delete the old file from that etc/ directory. Now I want to put my altered file into...
  5. Poll: Re: Do you have more than one Computer running Linux?

    Not sure if this thread is even the proper place to comment but Lucid 10.04.1 is sweet. I'm normally running Snow Leopard on my Macs and must run Office 2007 on Windoze7 or XP (as I teach that). I...
  6. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Ubuntu All Brother Printer & Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!

    sudo apt-get install brother-cups-wrapper-extra

    Di this in Terminal and, when it was done, I was able to add my MFC-465CN without a problem. Works perfectly.

    I did a web search and found a...

    [SOLVED] Re: Dell Inspiron 600m WIreless not working

    Thanks to all. Had the same issue this evening with a new (well, new for me but a discarded wreck for the guy who gave it to me) 600m with the same Broadcom adapter. Followed the directions and all...
  9. Re: are there ANY good video editors for Linux?

    Cinelerra and the standard movie player that comes with 8.1 have a horrible A/V sync problem with MP4(H264/AAC) files. VLC and Mplayer do not.

    I'd actually -pay- for something like MediaEdit...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Photo Organizers and Quicktime Movies

    Would it be serviceable to simply drop your QT movies into a folder and use the Movie Player to play them? You might need to update your codecs to permit QT videos to play.

    [ubuntu] Re: external hard drive now read-only

    I used it for an HFS+ hard drive connected via USB. However, this does classify it as a "Linux-type" filesystem, I guess.

    Did you substitute the name of your drive for "disk"?

    [ubuntu] Re: external hard drive now read-only

    I used this command after I first connected a drive that had been intialized:

    chown -R username:username /media/drivelabel

    (where "username" is my login username and "drivelabel" is the actual...

    So give him the proper command.
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Share folders & disks on Ubuntu 8 box to Macs & PCs?

    It looks like I only have to do the 'chown' command once for each drive just so it's set for R/W for both me and the clients logging in over the LAN (who are logging in as me).

    As I understand it,...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Share folders & disks on Ubuntu 8 box to Macs & PCs?

    Wow! I think I just found my ultimate solution: It turns out that I can share an HFS+ formatted hard drive connected via USB (or, presumably, FireWire) to the Ubuntu box over the network to a Mac...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Share folders & disks on Ubuntu 8 box to Macs & PCs?

    Again, I see much complexity in the 2 (or 3, if you include having PCs as clients) procedures necessary to get NFS running on both server and client(s). Samba is already there on the clients and the...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: OSX has "Archive & Install". What about Ubuntu?

    I discovered the process but I did it when doing a fresh install. I let Ubuntu do an automatic partitioning, then interrupted the installation process and ran it again. I then looked at the newly...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Share folders & disks on Ubuntu 8 box to Macs & PCs?

    I checked out your "#2" link. I think you'll agree your solution involves quite a bit more complexity than mine; My instructions (which are quite verbose) take up only one screen.

    I get the...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: Share folders & disks on Ubuntu 8 box to Macs & PCs?

    As your instructions say: OS X natively supports connecting to FTP through the Finder. The only drawback is that mounted shares are read only.

    Read-only shares don't cut it. If I did FTP, my...
  21. [ubuntu] Re: Share folders & disks on Ubuntu 8 box to Macs & PCs?

    The journey continues. I finally figured out how to partition my HD so /home would be on its own partition which (if I've been properly informed) should let me do a clean install without hosing my...

  23. [ubuntu] Filesharing and breaking the 2GB limit - both solved

  24. [ubuntu] Re: Share folders & disks on Ubuntu -9- box to Macs & PCs?

    *sigh* This is strange.:redface:

    I did manage to get it working but everything I pushed to the server volume sounded like it arrived (that "plunk" sound OSX provides when a file copy has...
  25. [ubuntu] Re: Share folders & disks on Ubuntu -9- box to Macs & PCs?

    I tried adding a samba user using "sudo smbpasswd -a artist" and then was prompted for a new password and confirmation of the password. I then restarted. Then I used shares-admin to specify which...
