  1. [ubuntu] Re: update manager interaction with unity sidebar

    After running:

    I can see that my proposed fix did not work.

    I've also tried:

    Mine says "About Mozilla Firefox". Maybe if you re-run the script? Also, I had to run it again after the 3.5.2 upgrade.

    Thanks! That headache was driving me crazy on sites that actually check if the user-agent is Firefox, not Shiretoko.

    [ubuntu] Re: krdc stuck on full screen mode?

    I've just suffered this too. The solution for me was to delete the krdcrc file.


    mv ~/.kde/share/config/krdcrc ~/.kde/share/config/krdcrc.old

    then restart krdc

    It really depends on the ftpd package you are planning to use. For instance, vsftpd has virtual users.

    well, that seems odd. You should probably edit that and remove the extra .ods.org from the first two lines. I'm not real sure what effect this has on your problem, but my machine does not look like...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Can't resolve host name after upgrade... help!

    I just did a nslookup on parke.ods.org and it worked fine for me. I also use opendns, so that is not your problem.

    post what you have in /etc/hosts
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Can't resolve host name after upgrade... help!

    try to see if your local dns servers are set in /etc/resolv.conf
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Can't resolve host name after upgrade... help!

    You can add permanent hostnames to it to /etc/hosts.

    sudo nano /etc/hosts

    or ( if you prefer )


    sudo gedit /etc/hosts

    you can also read the hostname manual
  17. [ubuntu] Re: [SOLVED] Hostname issues "hostname: Unknown host"

    from man hostname:



    so, just do

    sudo nano /etc/hostname
    and change it to what you want
  18. [ubuntu] Re: simple temperature monitor in tray like ktemperature but for gnome>

    sudo apt-get install sensors-applet

    then right-click on the panel and choose "add to panel", and pick "hardware sensors monitor"
