  1. [ubuntu] Re: Question about Reading and Understanding System Log Ubuntu 20.04

    Even if you have no printer connected and no printer driver installed the printing system is installed and - probably - running. Try opening http://localhost:631 in a browser. You should get...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Question about Reading and Understanding System Log Ubuntu 20.04

    127.x.x.x in IP4 is the loopback interface. It's there for the machine to 'talk to itself'. For example all printing goes through that 'network'. The advantage to this should be obvious: as far as...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Question about Reading and Understanding System Log Ubuntu 20.04

    The Virtual File System service has nothing in common with a Virtual Private Network except the word "Virtual". It's purpose is to make things that are not really file systems look like they are. An...
  4. Re: The Black Hole of Package Management

    @ActionParsnip: There's an easier way to get a new profile for Firefox: just call 'firefox --ProfileManager' and you can create a new profile. You can then either start firefox with this profile from...
  5. Re: The Black Hole of Package Management

    Yes and no ... If you install a package and it installs some other package as a dependency, that package will be marked as automatically installed. But if a package was installed during installation...
  6. Re: The Black Hole of Package Management

    Of course not. Unless you do the removal with 'purge' or with 'remove' and the option '--purge' it will leave the configuration files for the package on your system. This is so that manual changes to...
  7. [xubuntu] Re: Don't understand \\ in message from Wine

    The double '\' are - in this case - a compromise notation between Windows - which uses '\' as a separator for elements in a directory path - and Unix / Linux which uses '\' as an escape character...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Need guidance about file compression

    The first two files originate with programs that follow the Unix philosophy: one program for one job. Putting multiple files into one file in such a way that it is possible to pull the single files...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: printing terminal stout to text file

    Another thing: hard-coding terminal escape sequences is not a good idea. They are hard to read. Also while actual hardware terminals have become a historical curiosity they do exist and not all of...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: printing terminal stout to text file

    What I meant was to have 'tee' multiple times inside the script. For example instead of


    echo -e "${blue}What is $x + $y?${nc}" | cowsay

    you'd do


    echo -e "${blue}What is $x + $y?${nc}"...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: printing terminal stout to text file

    Why not simply use the script as is and pipe the commands whose output you want in the file through 'tee' to send them both to the screen and to the file ? The option '--append' of tee does just what...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: printing terminal stout to text file

    Once you have the file with all the embedded terminal control codes in it you can use the streaming editor sed to remove them.

  13. [gnome] Re: difference between --orientation and --rotate of xrandr?

    '--orientation' is an old - RandR 1.1 - option which doesn't need a specified '--output' (it is so old that at the time having multiple displays connected to the same machine was an unheard of...

    Re: Problems with loss space

    To see what uses your space you wouldn't use df (disk free) but du (disk used). More specifically you'd start at the root and use


    du --max-depth=1 --one-file-system /

    Discarding the various...
  15. [all variants] Re: join mulitple videos and slides in a single mp4 file

    To be able to join files without reencoding using ffmpeg the files have to use the same codecs and be of the same dimensions and the same frame rate. So I'd first check the video files whether they...

    Welcome to the forum!

    Next time you post here please use English, we are more likely to understand your problem even from badly broken English written by a human than from a google-translation of...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: I can't type special characters with disability keyboard ♿️

    [ubuntu] Re: Desktop locks

    There is an option '-p' / '--priority' to the swapon program and the man page for swapon (man 8 swapon) tells you to look at the man page for the swapon system call (man 2 swapon) for an explanation...
  19. Re: Moving .mdb (ms access) database to LibreOffice Base

    @TheFu: You might want to give LO Base another look, because it's not using some half-baked self-written database engine. The database it uses per default is HSQLDB but it can use any database for...
  20. [lubuntu] Re: Execute command then start executable in Desktop entry - possible?

    First, there's no need to export the variable you can just prefix it to the command, like this:

  21. [ubuntu] Re: WSL1 - can't install lolcat-c (very important)

    Hmm, that is strange. Check that there is an executable named 'lolcat' in /usr/local/bin/ ('ls -l /usr/local/bin/lol*' should have something like '-rwxr-xr-x' in the first column, meaning readable...
  22. [ubuntu] Re: WSL1 - can't install lolcat-c (very important)

    Congratulations, you're done. If make outputs 'make: Nothing to be done for 'all', then all the files that might need compiling have already been compiled on a previous run of make. Similarly the...

    The standard software interface to scanners in Ubuntu is SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy; also a pun because they think the mix of driver and UI in TWAIN isn't sane ...). It's homepage features an...

    [ubuntu] Re: Read Only win10 drive

    In addition to what QIII said: Linux is good at a lot of things but fixing a broken NTFS is not one of them. There simply are no tools to do this. So whenever an NTFS looks like something is wrong...
