  4. [SOLVED] Re: Sharing files on LAN and not on internet

    Seems overly complicated. Why two ethernet cards and why NTFS on the Ubuntu machine? You would need to configure Samba on the Ubuntu machine, and that would be about it.

    Re: LibreOffice MSFT Office 2010

    Upload the odt file to Google Drive, and then download as DOCX. Google seems to have done a pretty good job of reverse engineering the DOCX format.

    I am new to ogmrip, and am puzzled by the extreme slowness as well. The System Monitor shows very low resource usage. Any enlightenment would be appreciated.
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Open PDF file directly in file browser in gedit

    Gedit a text editor. For opening PDFs in Ubuntu you want to use the Evince Document Viewer. Clicking on on a PDF file in a default install of Ubuntu should open it in the Evince Document Viewer.

  13. Re: So I finally decide to remove java after this one...

    I believe that is/was the Oracle Java (the programming language, not the scripting language). The default Ubuntu install uses a different version that is not a problem.

    [ubuntu] Re: How to save an image/picture

    Use the Poppler utils which are included with Ubuntu. These are command line, and you can Google for the syntax. You can do all sorts of weird and wonderful things with PDFs.

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 12.04 completely freeze

    I was having freeze ups on my laptop which I "fixed" by removing a mounted SMB share, that I really didn't need.

    [ubuntu] Re: Help with Samba

    I have never had much luck with SMB shares and network browsing. But if all the machines are Linux, why not use NFS? It is the traditional protocol for networking in Linux, and is very solid.
