    [SOLVED] Re: How can I make this executable?

    I'm not sure, but I don't think a .jar file should be executable. It's not a script or native binary, it's a Java package. Can you explain what you are doing that produces the error message? Is this...

    Re: Aquaria audio glitches (fix included)

    No, I found some references to possible issues with OpenAL, so I decided to try using a different one. I was going to report a bug, but their bugzilla requires more registration than I felt like...

    Aquaria audio glitches (fix included)

    I was having this issue with Aquaria from the Humble Indie Bundle. The sound would work fine at first, but before long it would begin clicking. It's an irregular rapid click, at a rate of maybe 2...

    After some experimentation I've hacked up this script to fix the alternate-screen-buffer-background issue:

    Re: Ubuntu makes corrupted zip files

    I did a test compressing the same file with Xarchiver and File Roller. The resulting .zip files are bit-for-bit identical. The problem you are seeing has to be the result of something aside from the...

    Re: Ubuntu makes corrupted zip files

    My point is that neither of them actually create .zip files. Both invoke the external "zip" program for that purpose, so whatever problem you have with .zip files could affect both. It's clearly not...

    [kde] Re: I can't install ANYTHING - please help!

    Yeah, it's clearly the "Acquire::http:: Proxy" setting. We'll need to locate that in the config files and probably just clear it out.

    Singer&Cal, do you have some reason to use a proxy? We've...

    Re: Ubuntu makes corrupted zip files

    It looks like Xarchiver and File Roller both just use zip in the background. There should be no difference, except possibly in the options they use.

    That makes me think the actual problem is...

    Re: Ubuntu makes corrupted zip files

    It looks like the context-menu option uses File Roller (at least on my system). From what I can tell, tihs creates zip files with DEFLATE compression. That's pretty standard, and I think it should...

    Ah, yes. I hadn't noticed that option. I wonder if v2.0 isn't widely supported? I'll investigate a bit more and let you know if I find anything.

    [ubuntu] Re: Can't change password

    Thinking about this a bit more, it wouldn't hurt to make sure the permissions and ownership are correct on /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow. passwd should be -rw-r--r-- root:root, and shadow should be...

    Everything there looks fine. I think it's all identical to mine, and just to be sure I changed my password with 'passwd' and there was no problem.

    We might be able to narrow down where the error...

    Re: Ubuntu makes corrupted zip files

    Never seen this. How exactly are you making the zip files? It might not say much, but can you run the 'file' command on a zip files you've created and post the results?

    [SOLVED] Re: remove partitions

    Deleting partitions is easy, but that just turns them into unused space.

    Resizing partitions to consume adjacent unused space is easy, too.

    Resizing a file system, that I don't know about. It's...
