    [ubuntu] Re: pulseaudio disabling simultaneous output

    You probably have some twiddling to do with the settings in padevchooser. It is like alsamixer but controls where the sound is directed to.
  2. Re: I need some advice on how to make a database/dictionary

    grep ^b file | sort

    This may solve my problem. If I enter all my words by hand into a text file and use these commands I could get the sorted, alphabetized results I need. I could then just...
  3. Re: I need some advice on how to make a database/dictionary

    I'm reading the output of grep --help right now and I'm a little lost. I'm not sure about "regular expressions" and how to use them. This makes sense to me, though. It seems possible to use gedit to...
  4. Re: I need some advice on how to make a database/dictionary

    I added the following to your awk code:


    }else if ( choice == 6 ) {
    # enter word and search for definitions
    printf "Enter word: "
    getline word < "-"
    for (i=1;i<=d;i++){

    ghostdog: I read here (...) about a command that can print all lines that contain a certain key word. Would it be possible for me to add a few lines to the code you provided that would allow me to...
  7. Re: I need some advice on how to make a database/dictionary

    This is all very helpful (and eye-opening).

    As far as complexity is concerned, the end result is not intended for an audience any wider than me. I want to use this to organize my work,...
  8. Re: I need some advice on how to make a database/dictionary

    @ghostdog & fr4nko:
    Thank you for your insights. That bit of code to go along with a text file is what I had in mind, I just don't have the coding background to whip it out like that!

    If I go...
  9. I need some advice on how to make a database/dictionary

    Hey Everybody!

    I have 430+ words and definitions that I have compiled by hand from book sources that I need to organize into an alphabetized dictionary/glossary. Condict look promising, but the...
  10. [ubuntu] need a tool to manage/remove/add fonts system-wide

    In Ubuntu my fonts are spread far and wide. Some are available to OpenOffice that are not available to Gimp and others. Some are specific to certain applications (like Java).

    [ubuntu] Re: sudo nautilus - segmentation fault

    Same thing here. I removed the blank disc and "gksu nautilus" worked without giving me a seg fault message. Strange.

    I discovered that one today as well. H&R Block has an issue with Linux, but they let you off with a warning and allow to use the rest of their site at your own "risk." I used the HRB site for '07 and...

    I am getting really tired of sites like netflix.com or obamiconme.pastemagazine.com that disable their features based on what operating system the user is running.

    ntfs-config doesn't address the problem with the drive. My system is already set up to deal with ntfs file systems. I'm glad it worked for you, though!

    it's not a "real" problem, and can apparently be fixed with a package called sid procps. how to get this package, however, eludes both me and google.
