    [ubuntu] Re: PATH$ error

    It's a text editor. Find the lines that mention PATH (read my previous comments), and get rid of them. Use the arrow keys to move around the document, and Backspace to delete.

    Seriously, how hard...

    [ubuntu] Re: PATH$ error

    Well, of course, since you screwed up your $PATH. You'll have to specify the entire path to nano, so

    /usr/bin/nano ~/.bashrc
  4. Re: Chrome wont load flash plug in on Chrobuntu using Chromebook

    Just to check things out, you might want to try disabling Adobe Flash, and enabling PepperFlash. I've heard reports that PepperFlash can be a little faster. As I understand it, Google actually worked...
  5. Re: Chrome wont load flash plug in on Chrobuntu using Chromebook

    Yep. You have both Adobe Flash, and Google's PepperFlash installed in Chrome. Try disabling one of them, and see if that it that fixes things.

    [ubuntu] Re: Help .. dir etc.. I change permissions

    To fix sudoers specifically, do


    chmod 440 /etc/sudoers
    chown root:root /etc/sudoers # this part probably isn't necessary, but it can't hurt


    Once sudoers is fixed, you can boot back into...

    [ubuntu] Re: Help .. dir etc.. I change permissions

    I'd recommend you reboot your computer into recovery mode (or use a LiveCD), and manually change the permissions. /etc/sudoers, by the way should be 440, owned by root:root.

  9. Re: Chrome wont load flash plug in on Chrobuntu using Chromebook

    Can you check chrome://plugins and see if you have multiple Flash installed? I wonder if Chrome's PepperFlash is conflicting with the system-installed Adobe Flash.

    [ubuntu] Re: PATH$ error

    No, you need to edit those files. If you're stuck in a command-line, try using nano, so

    nano ~/.bashrc
    Look for a line that changes PATH, and delete it (or at least, fix it).

    I'm not on 10.10; I'm on 12.10. In fact, I rarely ever come on Ubuntu Forums, and since I was last on here, they made it impossible to edit your profile if you've made less than 25 posts, so I can't...

    The file you're looking for is /etc/fstab. Since you don't provide any additional info, I can't help you any further with what should go in there.

    Yeah, I'm going to agree with this. If you don't want anything on the Desktop, the easiest thing is to move them out of the ~/Desktop folder. If you're not showing anything there, it doesn't make...

    That wouldn't necessarily fix special characters in a filename, and would only work if you give the absolute path.

    if [ ! -f "$1" ]
    then
