  1. Re: Need help creating desktop launcher for LibreOffice bug workaround

    Well, actually they do hurt. The quotes break the word splitting and env will try to execute a program named 'libreoffice --writer' with the space as part of the name of the executable file's name....
  2. Re: Is there any tool to create .scr files

    The extension .scr can mean a lot of things. But if you're talking about Windows screen savers, than .scr files are actually executables (which is why back in the day downloaded screen savers were a...

    Re: unable to extract program

    That command is actually two commands separated by '&&' which means 'execute the following command if the previous one succeeded'. Since you're trying to extract a tar archive into a directory that...
  4. Re: How to mirror a display to a projector that has a different aspect ratio?

    You could define a 4:3 frame buffer with a width of 1680 (--fb 1680x1260) then set the laptop display to show from an offset (--pos 0x105) at its normal resolution and have the projector show the...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: I think I screwed up very badly (need help)

    Just a stupid idea, but have you tried to switch to another virtual terminal (ctrl-alt-F1 to ctrl-alt-F7) ? AFAIK in modern Ubuntu the display manager runs in a specific VT (number 1, I think), the...

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu control bottom two buttons on Thinkpad t410 touchpad?

    xinput wouldn't work if you weren't already using X11. X11R7 is a protocol for the communication between applications that need to display graphics and a display server that makes the hardware do...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu control bottom two buttons on Thinkpad t410 touchpad?

    If the 'Button Labels' list in "xinput --list 'SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad' " is the same as mine in my original post then the xinput driver doesn't handle the additional buttons. If that's the case,...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu control bottom two buttons on Thinkpad t410 touchpad?

    The Wacom driver is for graphic tablets made by Wacom and possibly some other similar devices, so if you've got one of those connected that would explain why it's installed. Otherwise you do seem to...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu control bottom two buttons on Thinkpad t410 touchpad?

    Please run this command


    dpkg -l 'xserver-xorg-input-*'|grep '^ii'

    to check what driver for the touchpad is installed on your system. There are two, the newer libinput and the older synaptics....
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Automated Downloading of Radio Show Files

    [ubuntu] Re: Kindle writing software

    Alkinea is just a converter for turning a OpenOffice / Libreoffice document into an epub file. If you have Amazons kindlegen installed, Alkinea can use that to generate a file in the old Kindle...
  13. [xubuntu] Re: Put Command in Launcher for Application

    Is the 'xubuntu' tag in the heading an error ? In XUbuntu you can just right click on the desktop, select 'Create New Launcher' (or words to that effect, I'm retranslating from the German) and get...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu control bottom two buttons on Thinkpad t410 touchpad?

    With Ubuntu 20.04 you have the choice between running with the newer, supposedly faster Wayland or the older X11, which has a lot more features (which is the reason Wayland is supposed to be faster,...

    Re: Can't install libinput gestures

    There's a reason why that answer at AskUbuntu has 0 votes: the Synaptics driver is very old code, originally a driver for one specific early touchpad by one specific manufacturer connected in one...

    [SOLVED] Re: Install arm-none-eabi-gcc

    I don't think nautilus is showing you '/usr/bin/' (far to few files, there should be thousands in there). I think that's actually '/media/jv/uuid_of_Datenträger_74MB/usr/bin/'. Try hitting 'ctrl-l'...
  18. Re: Trying to load Core 18 on Raspberry Pi 3

    AFAIK the only Ubuntu flavour to directly offer a downloadable image that should work on a raspi 3 is Ubuntu Mate. Ubuntu itself only offers a server image but of course you should be able to install...

    The *.???x Microsoft Office files are just zip-containers full of XML for textual content, structure and format and various other files for none-textual content similar to the ODF-formats used by...
  20. [SOLVED] Re: sutdown command in executable script run by crontab

    Since shutdown is supposed to be run by root (or someone allowed to act as root through sudo), I see two ways - or three if we count yancek's idea of changing /etc/sudoers allowing your account to...
  21. Re: Trying to load Core 18 on Raspberry Pi 3

    Ubuntu Core is meant for building 'Internet of Things' devices. You're supposed to develop and (cross-)compile your app on another machine and install that app as a snap via ssh. Basically all access...

    Good for you. According to this discussion on AskUbuntu the drag lock problem is a non-configurable timeout of 300 ms between tap and drag. If you're just minimally to slow it doesn't work and as of...

    [SOLVED] Re: Install arm-none-eabi-gcc

    'chmod +x ...' marks a file as executable. Since you could call the compiler by prefixing './' it was already marked that way.
