  1. [SOLVED] Re: How to make init use a certain flag for a service it starts.

    I found that in general you can edit the conf files in /etc/init ; these are simple and short bash scripts and easy to modify the boot flags. I was able to do what I wanted by editing...

  8. [SOLVED] Re: Do env vars set in .bashrc not effect the gnome desktop?

    It appears that .bashrc is for bash, while .gnomerc is for gnome.

    I didn't know about .gnomerc, but when setting my env var in .gnomerc it will work from the gnome desktop.

    Although I did have...

  12. [ubuntu] Re: How can I see what environmental variables for a specific application are set to?

    Thanks, but I'm more interested in env vars in general rather than python specific details.

    Re: Python: @staticmethod decorator

    To my knowledge a class is just a name space really(?). That's beside the point though.

    Try calling a.status() and you'll get an error saying that 0 arguments were expect and 1 given. I think...

  20. [SOLVED] Re: Pressing HOME or END in Vi produces a H or F character?

    I find vim* more convenient then using a mouse/GUI in many situations, and sometimes a GUI isn't available.

    I installed the full vim package, and it's working as I expected now. I'm still...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: Pressing HOME or END in Vi produces a H or F character?

    There are lots of things more difficult than working with Vi. Saying "I don't know" is better than "just use something else;" and saying nothing is better than "I don't know."
  22. [SOLVED] Re: Pressing HOME or END in Vi produces a H or F character?

    I cannot backspace. When I'm backspacing and hit column 1 I cannot go further. I cannot erase line feeds.

  24. [SOLVED] Re: Pressing HOME or END in Vi produces a H or F character?

    It must have been something to do with that compatibility mode. "set nocompatible" did the trick and placing it in $HOME/.vimrc did the trick. It now behaves as I expect vi should.

    Thanks.
