    This has NOTHING to do with Laptops or Hardware.

    [ubuntu] Re: How do I make a Web Page?

    As noted, virtually all hosts have a basic page creator tool. That or a hosted blog would be best -- something like blogger.

    Those are the simplest options for someone just looking to have a...

    If he's happy with Windows, who are you to tell him otherwise? You can only provide the information, which you have.

    You would have to create a command (bash script) called ccc, which would serve as a wrapper.

    Yeah a python script could easily do telnet.

    As far as doing the heartbeat... it's not "a lot simpler"... as it involves adding two NICs: (from your link)

    Ok. This is a bit long for a forum, but I wouldn't post it if I didn't think it was useful. Here, I connect to my router (where there's HTTP authentication [like most routers]).

    Have you considered making it a web-based game? I'm unfamiliar with the game you want to make but for simple turn-based games the web works well. PHP would be the obvious choice there -- it's what...

    [ubuntu] Re: Audio only through Firefox/Flash

    If you can hear sound through flash and others, then I'm inclined to suggest it is not a hardware error.

    I'm leaning toward codec or some other problem. Do basic .wav files play?

    [ubuntu] Re: Easy FTP setup?

    There's no way to "check" right now but it is something that should be in the back of your mind if (in the future) Apache/PHP/etc gives you "permission" errors. For now just make sure that Apache can...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Why is Ubuntu not commonly used for servers?

    Also, companies tend to buy software/services and then look for the OS that support them. Whereas hobbyists or price sensitive users will look for ways to get Windows apps to work on Ubuntu, the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Easy FTP setup?

    Yeah. You're fine. SSH File Transfers are more secure than FTP in fact.

    The only thing I'll add is that if you own /var/www/ then apache (running as user www-data) might have some issues so you...

    If it says the command is not found then you need to install that app.

    But as Zulu said, it's impossible to help when your question is so vague.
  17. [xubuntu] Re: How to change permissions on floppy drive

    You don't change permissions on a device.

    You do change permissions to files/folders that are in a device, such as the contents of a disk.

    Insert a disk then mount it and you'll be good to go.
  18. [ubuntu] Re: How can I lock/unlock keyboard on mouse gesture?

    Then what you really want to do is temporarily disable the keyboard, not lock/unlock.

    It's a stupid request because then you leave your computer crippled unless you can 'enable' it again. Now, you...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Can't type in password when i start the server

    It's a feature. Would you really want your password displayed for all to see? Type in your password then hit enter. You'll log in.

    yeah. Whenever apt-get gives you something like that you can use:

    The -f means 'fix the broken dependencies'. Sometimes you have to go back and forth a bit but if...
