    Help with ftp server

    I have vsftpd on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I have an anonymous ftp outgoing set up in the /srv/ftp directory. That's easy enough, but I need a little more. I have read the documentation here: ...

    Re: What happened to the dictionary?

    OK, guys, I was really exasperated, but let's try this. I've found that it's better to discuss bugs before reporting them, because sometimes they aren't really bugs. So check these out for me, will...

    Re: What happened to the dictionary?

    Thanks for the reply, howefield. Please note the reports of broken stuff.

    I'm not going to report it further, because my bug reports never get fixed.

    Re: What happened to the dictionary?

    OK, I have the answer. There's a lot of broken stuff in Ubuntu.

    The package is called gnome-dictionary. I don't know how it got uninstalled, but if you try to find it, you have to know exactly...

    What happened to the dictionary?

    Ubuntu used to have a very nice, fairly comprehensive, locally installed English dictionary. I believe it was American English, but I haven't seen it for many months, and I'm not sure. I'm not...
  7. [lubuntu] Re: Deja dup can not restore backups - LockFailed

    I think duplicity is running with insufficient privilege to create a cache file. Try the command again with sudo. That worked for me.

    In other words:
    sudo duplicity <your command here>

    Sorry...
  8. Re: Clickable executable possible on data DVD?

    Yes, that's what I figured. Presumably because they are readonly devices. I'll take that as a "no".


    Good idea. That might actually work, although the required setup might be a little too...
  9. Clickable executable possible on data DVD?

    Newbie question here. I'm a Linux user and an old Windows command-line programmer, with little knowledge of *nix scripts.

    Is it possible to distribute a program on a data DVD that can be started...

    Re: HD video on data DVDs

    Well, I'm trying to figure out how to do this by hook or crook. Maybe this would work?: https://www.videolan.org/doc/vlc-user-guide/en/ch07.html#idp7188800 .

    Of course, that would no longer be a...

    Re: HD video on data DVDs

    A Web page does work, but there's a problem. Ideally, the media player should terminate after finishing and return focus to the menu page. Unfortunately, that's a property of the media player, and...

    Another idea would be a program that displays a static image with the menu and links. The links would use the system default media-viewing program. There could be three program versions in the root...

    Re: HD video on data DVDs

    Thanks for your replies so far.

    Just to be sure, note that I'm only interested in high-definition content, and I want to display it at high def. I'm not interested in converting high-def to...

    Re: HD video on data DVDs

    Here's something that sounds like it might work. It does like an old, ugly hack that may not work, however.

    HD video on data DVDs

    I sometimes make videos for myself and for a small group. Until recently I have made video DVDs, but now I really need to move to high definition.

    I surveyed my users, and many of them have no...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: Can't install Musescore 2 -- library conflict

    OK, it turns out that ubuntu-desktop is indeed from libqt. It's probably the qt interface for the QT library.

    The Ubuntu instructions say to add the PPA, then
    sudo apt-get update
    to install the...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: Can't install Musescore 2 -- library conflict

    Thanks. I saw that question but missed the answer. (red face)

    See if I miss any removed stuff? Are you sure? That seems a little risky, to say the least. Hence this question.

    Here's what...

    [SOLVED] Re: How to create an audio CD?

    [SOLVED] Re: How to create an audio CD?

    K3b. The file name is not the same as the track title. As far as I know you have to enter the title manually. Right click, select Properties, I think. Or try double clicking I think.

    Oh, wait,...

  24. Re: [ubuntu] How much RAM is ideal for Ubuntu?

    I wouldn't, at least not without exploring Openbox first. Openbox has some great tricks of its own that the others lack.

    For example, if you set it to focus on whatever window is under the mouse,...
