    [ubuntu] Re: Starting .sh from panel

    On 16.04 you've still got the graphical sudo frontend gksudo (in the package gksu,deprecated on newer versions of Ubuntu), so replacing 'sudo' in the command with that should get you a graphical...
  2. Re: Check all files for case sensitive names

    This will find all files with the same name except for case, no matter in what directory they are:


    find ~ -type f -printf '%p\t%f\n'|sort -k2 --field-separator='PUT A LITERAL TAB HERE' -f|uniq...

    Re: sed question

    Can't quite get sed to misbehave as it does for you. Actually I can reproduce the result easily enough (sed 's/PATTERNTOMATCH//g') but if I execute the line you give I get

  4. [xubuntu] Re: Laptop shuts down without warning on battery

    Those messages starting at 'Dec 11 08:18:39' look like a controlled shutdown to me with systemd reaching the target shutdown within a second. What I don't see is a reason for the shutdown ... There...

    Re: pkill fails ... no error message

    'pgrep' and 'pkill' are actually the same program (pkill is a symbolic link). It's part of the package 'procps' and a look at that package with 'apt show procps' tells me that the homepage for that...

    Re: pkill fails ... no error message

    See the man page ('man pkill'):

    Since pkill doesn't report processes but sends signals to them instead, I read this as "it won't send signals to itself".

    The list of user-ids is comma-separated...
  7. [xubuntu] Re: Laptop shuts down without warning on battery

    I'd check the logs (/var/log/syslog) and the journal ('journalctl -b -1|tail -n 100|less' gets the last 100 messages from the previous (that's the '-1') boot). This should give you an idea whether...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: How to stream video from a LCD digital microscope?

    In vlc hit ctrl-r or select 'convert/save' from the 'Media'-Menu. Select the tab 'Capture Device' in the dialog, set the video device (and possibly the audio device) to use, then hit the button...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: How to stream video from a LCD digital microscope?

    The 'modprobe' command loads kernel modules and can pass parameters to them. The 'quirks' parameter of the uvcvideo module activates various workarounds for devices that are not quite uvc-compliant....

    [ubuntu] Re: unrar like virus

    Nope, never saw anything that made me think unrar behaved like a virus. I did take a look at the source published at rarlabs (for a completely unrelated reason) and while a lot of it went straight...
  11. Re: Adobe flash outdated on eoan. No updates available.

    Install flashplugin-installer instead of adobe-flashplugin; the plugin in the repos is held at a fixed version while the installer will get the newest from Adobe whenever a new one is released.

  12. Re: One line command to check if automatic updates are enabled

    That service is part of the back end for unattended upgrades and gets started whether unattended upgrades are active or not. It's mostly concerned with postponing a shutdown until the package system...
  13. Re: One line command to check if automatic updates are enabled

    Thank you, 1fallen. Missing spaces around the comparison operators, I think. So second try:

  16. Re: One line command to check if automatic updates are enabled

    The existence of this configuration file isn't enough to come to any conclusion since it might contain directives to switch updates OFF. There is a program for querying apt configuration named...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: My system thinks that sdb is attached, but it's not.

    '/dev/' is normally a devtmpfs whose content get created during boot (see the output of 'mount'). The output of 'sudo parted --list' should give you a good idea what device -- if any -- gets seen as...
  18. Re: How to install this Prodikeys PC-MIDI HID Driver?

    Do you have the older version with PS/2 interface ? Then you're probably out of luck. The driver you're linking to is for the newer version connected through USB. It should already be installed by...

    Is this the Gramps you're talking about ? Then I can tell you that it actually is in the repositories but Ubuntu Software doesn't show it, probably because of missing appstream metadata. A simple...

  21. Re: Manpages not displayed in terminal on Ubuntu 18.04

    Try 'file /usr/bin/less'. That should give you '/usr/bin/less: symbolic link to /bin/less' on a Ubuntu system behaving normally, and 'file /bin/less' should give you something like '/bin/less: ELF...
  22. Re: Manpages not displayed in terminal on Ubuntu 18.04

    'man' checks whether the output is a terminal. If it is, it calls 'pager' to display the page. /usr/bin/pager is a symbolic link under control of the Debian alternatives system and normally points at...

    Is there a reason you want the Oracle JDK ? openjdk-11-jdk is the default Java Development Kit on Ubuntu and should be compatible.

    The reason all these instructions are failing is because Oracle...

  25. [xubuntu] Re: 19.10 - top edge of windows no longer draggable

    I wouldn't bother trying to restore that functionality since XFCE offers something better: hold left alt and drag with the right mouse button. This resizes the window from the corner the pointer is...
