    [ubuntu] Re: lost+found?

    What permissions does it have? Root has to obey file permissions, it just has the ability to alter them. In general, you need to give root write permission to be able to delete it. If root is the...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Keyboard shortcut to printing some text

    Assuming you are running GNOME, there is a "Keyboard Shortcuts" program, which you can usually get to from System -> Preferences. If you scroll to the bottom, there is a section for "custom...

    [SOLVED] Re: bash script output redirect

    You are, in fact, correct. There is a way to "collect / consolidate / redirect the output of multiple commands from within a bash script".

    Putting () around any bash commands will consolidate all...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: forbidding the execution of a program for a user

    The simplest way is to do the opposite.

    If you can create a group which everyone allowed to execute the program belong to, then you can set the program to be in that group, and set its permission...

    [ubuntu] Re: cannot use Mac Tilde key(~)

    Although I have no idea what is causing this, I have one possible solution.

    Run the command "xev" (in the package x11-utils). It outputs all the information about events going to the X server you...

    [ubuntu] Re: Text Editors Redux

    Unfortunately, while there may be others, the only editor I personally know which can do both of those operations is Emacs.

    I love Emacs, however, many people don't enjoy learning the many key...

    Assuming you trust your jre-6u22-linux-x64.bin file (if you're paranoid then I suggest checksumming it), it should be safe.

    [ubuntu] Re: python graphics library

    I'm not familiar with the library, but in Ubuntu, the standard place for libraries is /usr/lib/python<version>/dist-packages. So, if you're running Python 2.6, try copying graphics.py to...
  11. [all variants] Re: question about /var, /tmp, and /var/tmp

    I don't know about /tmp versus /var/tmp, but I know about /var.

    You wouldn't want to put /var into RAM, since it is a place where various groups of files normally get located. If you're running a...

    [ubuntu] Re: Problem Shutting Down. please help

    It sounds like a program is hanging for some reason, that is, during the phase where Ubuntu sends kill signals to all of the applications, one or more stop responding.

    It seems to be tied up with CLC, the Common Lisp Controller, which uses /usr/share/common-lisp or /usr/lib/common-lisp. I've been having trouble with it recently. It looks like the common lisp...

    Well, good luck! It's not the easiest thing to do, but it is very rewarding to manage to customize a computer to do exactly what you want to, like that. I hope you succeed!

    It depends on what you mean by "daemon", whether it's a session startup program, a /etc/init.d script, a cron job, or something else entirely.

    In any case, though, it will have a user ID, and so...

    [ubuntu] Re: apt-get install running old package

    That is weird. I would try uninstalling and reinstalling noip2, and if that doesn't work then using "apt-get purge noip2" before reinstalling, to try to remove all traces of it.

    Sound, unfortunately, is still sometimes a very hard part of new Linux installs. Your best bet at the moment is to upgrade to Ubuntu 9.10 (I assume you were on 9.04 when you posted this), but beyond...

  25. [ubuntu] Re: how do I get a usb mic working on ubuntu?

    Hard to say. The general pointer first try for this kind of problem is searching Google for the word "Ubuntu" plus the model of the microphone.
