  1. [SOLVED] Re: How do I change the screen brightness with a keyboard shortcut?

    I've discovered the solution, with a bit of intuition and some trial-and-error.

    The keys XF86MonBrightnessDown and XF86MonBrightnessUp are assigned in dconf respectively to...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: How do I change the screen brightness with a keyboard shortcut?

    Thank you for the reply, Xian.

    Unfortunately, xbacklight does nothing whatsoever to my screen display, even after rebooting. There's no error message; it just does nothing. I've also tried using...
  3. [SOLVED] How do I change the screen brightness with a keyboard shortcut?

    I have been searching how to change my screen's brightness with a keyboard shortcut, because my keyboard doesn't have a physical key.

    A tool such as xrandr isn't suitable, because it messes with...

    Re: Again? Lawsuit against Linux

    That's a little judgemental, I think. I use a CMS (WordPress with a theme that I bought) that happens to provide this functionality. As a user of this theme (rather than as a developer), it wouldn't...

    Re: Again? Lawsuit against Linux

    That might have been a problem with your browser. It's one of those automatic counting things that need Javascript enabled.

    It reads 6 continents served; 40 years in business; 2M+ operating...

    Again? Lawsuit against Linux

    Yet another another frivolous lawsuit against some purveyors.

    This originally started with Microsoft back in the day when it was trying to maintain a monopoly.

  8. Re: Add 'Full Circle Magazine' to the 'Useful Links' menu?

    I'm popping in here to say that I support this request.

    Full Circle Magazine has been instrumental in adding to my enjoyment and understanding of Ubuntu (and Linux generally). I've always been...

    [ubuntu] Re: Bootable Ubuntu external hdd, how?

    If you just plug in the device, it's only data unless you do something with it. Only if you try to boot with it will something happen.

    However, if I understand you correctly, you want to reformat...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling with the "column" command, option -c

    Thank you for such a clear explanation! I finally understand what's going on with column!

    I shall indeed take another approach with this.

    I'll mark this thread as solved.
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling with the "column" command, option -c

    No, it ignores the width of the terminal. If the terminal is 100 columns wide and the output is 150 columns, column puts out 150 columns.

    That's what I understood, but it doesn't do this.

    So,...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Struggling with the "column" command, option -c

    Thanks for your replies. That's not what column does.

    It takes lines of text that have a delimiter (in my case, tab, rather like a CSV file), and formats it as a table, inserting whitespace as...
  13. [SOLVED] Struggling with the "column" command, option -c

    I'm using the column command with the -c option to limit the width of the output in the terminal.

    My problem is that it seems to ignore the -c option, so no matter what I put in it a large or...
  14. Re: Browser extensions can be harmful ... Be careful

    I think that the best place to ask this is in the Security forum. I suggest that you create a new thread there, asking exactly what you've just asked. Be aware that not everyone will know what the...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: How do I tell which version of a Gnome Shell Extension is installed?

    Yes, the Gnome Shell Extension (as an add-on is called).

    This works.

    This is the easy way :)

    Thank you for your responses.
  16. [SOLVED] How do I tell which version of a Gnome Shell Extension is installed?

    When I have a Gnome extension installed (e.g. Caffeine), how can I tell which version is currently installed?

    Searching online gives me no answer.
  17. [ubuntu] Linus Torvalds says a swap file is slower and more problematic than a swap partition

    According to recent news, Linus Torvalds warns against using a swap file, saying that you should use swap partition instead.

    He says that a swap file not only is slower, but also has the potential...
  18. Re: Browser extensions can be harmful ... Be careful

    Oh, they do indicate such information. But they're not monitored to the same extent as you show that Firefox does.
  19. Re: Browser extensions can be harmful ... Be careful

    That's interesting. Chrome's store doesn't have that distinction. It would be nice if it did!
  20. Re: GRUB appearence settings no longer work

    I am also interested in this question.

    GRUB_COLOR_NORMAL & GRUB_COLOR_HIGHLIGHT

    These appear to no longer work. The correct way to change these, I understand, is to create a Grub theme, and...
  21. Re: Browser extensions can be harmful ... Be careful

    Thanks for the warning.

    There's a lot of this going on. The best thing to do is stick with extensions from the official browser store (depending on which browser you use); always check reviews and...
  22. [ubuntu] Re: Can I install WordPress for local-only use on a normal desktop?

    Thanks so much for your help! I shall try to do all of this over the next couple of days, or maybe the weekend.

    If I have further questions, I'll post again.
  23. [ubuntu] Re: Can I install WordPress for local-only use on a normal desktop?

    Thank you. That makes it clearer.

    I've actually done something like this before, so it looks familiar to me.

    I don't know what goes in those files. I'm starting to worry that I've bitten off...
  24. [ubuntu] Re: Can I install WordPress for local-only use on a normal desktop?

    I had thought of a VM, but I hadn't thought of Docker precisely because I don't understand how Docker works. I've tried looking it up, but everything that I found seems to be aimed towards someone...
  25. [ubuntu] Re: Can I install WordPress for local-only use on a normal desktop?

    Thank you! I'll try it and see what happens.
