    Re: Minor issue with file sorting

    It probably can be done, but it would be a lot of work. You'd have to redefine the collation rules in your locale definition. See 'man locale', 'man localedef', 'man 5 locale' and probably 'man 5...

    Re: Windows and buttons too large

    Well, that's really nice. Since parse-edid says the checksum matches the content of the edid data, the cable, the connectors and the memory inside the display storing the information are probably...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: 'unable to download updates' - what can i do? (screenshot inside)

    You can wait a few minutes. You've probably got automatic updates enabled and the updater was downloading updates while you were trying to install something. The package system is a (simple) database...

    [SOLVED] Re: Executing bash command on login

    If you are using XUbuntu, then the right place to start your 'xdotool' would be in 'Session and Startup' which should be in the settings menu. On the tab "Application Autostart" you'll find a table...
  5. Re: Problem creating folder path for LeoCAD program

    Actually it isn't necessary to put anything in /usr/share/leocad because leocad has an option in the menu "View"->"Preferences"->tab "General"->field "Custom parts library" which allows you to set...

    Re: Windows and buttons too large

    You only ran the first half of the command. 'get-edid' finds the DDC and if there's EDID to be found outputs it as found - which means in some unreadable to humans binary format - to standard output....

    It could be the cable because there's a backchannel from the Display to the PC built into the connection on all modern display. It's called DDC (Display Data Channel) and is used among other things...

  13. Re: Problem creating folder path for LeoCAD program

    The directory your screenshot shows is '/usr/share/doc/leocad'. That is different from '/usr/share/leocad/', isn't it ? The command 'mkdir' has an option '-p' or '--parents' for situations where you...

    Re: Floppy drive writing issues

    Unless something changed since 14.04 - which I've still got on an old P4 Laptop that I only use when I need a floppy, a serial port or a parallel port - there should be a line in /etc/fstab like...
  16. Re: How to play music with as little overhead as possible?

    Instead of using Ubuntu and trying to strip it down, I'd go with one of the minimal distributions - probably Tiny Core since I've used it before (on a Wyse Thin Client with a 100MB Disk on Module as...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: Downloaded Spreadsheet Not Opening from /tmp

    You might be using a snap of Libre Office. Programs packaged as snaps are confined and can't access most of the file system. To check whether your Libre Office is a snap check the output of 'snap...

    Re: Mounting with systemd

    I don't believe unit files are parsed through the shell, so a command line expansion $(...) probably doesn't work there.

    Re: Programs Working Dir

    How about simply creating a second user account in Ubuntu ? You could then switch back and forth between the two users, each with it's own Telegram with its own data.

  21. Re: No screen copy when "menu" is activated
