    [SOLVED] Re: python syntax help

    elif may be more efficient, but it isn't a lot more efficient. In most cases, the difference would be insignificant.

    Re: How to show printer resident fonts in write?

    If you install the fonts as part of the driver installation process, then the fonts will be available to any app that is capable of using them, for them to use as they choose to use them. If your...
  3. Re: Php font supporting languages supported by facebook

    I'm afraid so.

    Where'd you get the idea of 70 different fonts? Let me explain a few things.

    First, it's impossible for any one font to cover all languages. At the minimum, there are plenty of...

    [SOLVED] Re: HTML/CSS Alignment

    Read up on the differences between block-level and inline elements. You must know which each tag defaults to. You can, of course, change any tag. However, I think you're using incorrect tags.

  5. Re: Php font supporting languages supported by facebook

    The most important thing is to understand character sets and Unicode and to handle them correctly. That's most of the battle there. After that, most OSes will use a fallback font if the one that's...

    [SOLVED] Re: HTML/CSS Alignment

    Theoretically, DIV is better than SPAN. SPAN is an inline tag, and inline tags can't have their alignment set. DIV is block-level, where alignment is relevant. Of course, you can make either tag have...

    [ubuntu] Re: symbolic link

    The whole point of symlinks isn't merely a file listing. It's to access files at another location. A webserver is completely unrelated. Using Apache's mod_rewrite is useless in the OP's situation. He...

    [ubuntu] Re: symbolic link

    I don't see how installing Apache helps the situation at all. The point is, you can only make a symlink to a file/directory on the local machine. If you want to symlink to a remote machine, you must...

    Try deleting ~/.ICEauthority then logging in again. That should solve things.

    OK. The first column tells us that your home directory has global write permissions and no execute permissions. Many of the graphical components of a Linux system will refuse to run for security...

    If you had typed the command exactly, you would have gotten different results. For example, here's what I get:

    Please paste the results of both commands. For the chmod, there's got to be a mistake somewhere. I don't think the output you mentioned is possible if you typed the command I gave you.

    [ubuntu] Re: symbolic link

    You have to have a filesystem path available. The most obvious way is to mount the remote filesystem somewhere, then symlink to it.

    Sounds like your permissions are set wrong. Try
    chmod 755 ~If that doesn't work, make sure your home folder is owned by your user (not, for example, root).

    I did a Google search, and it appears that doodle.db comes from Doodle, a desktop search engine. I presume that you installed it and either it is misconfigured or buggy.

    Also, after mounting the partition from the live CD, run baobab (possibly as root). It's a great way to quickly find where your disk space is going.

    This probably has nothing to do with Gnome or KDE; those start up later in the login process. Look in ~/.Xsession-errors and other relevant dotfiles for some hints. Also, check your home directory's...
