    [ubuntu] Re: Change BASH shortcut keys

    Pelgar:
    Hmm, I thought I saw a bug report pertaining to this as well. Good to see I'm not the only one experiencing this. For me, I actually use Ctrl-C for both purposes. It was kind of funny,...

    [ubuntu] Re: Change BASH shortcut keys

    Well, I work in both environments, so you can see why muscle-memory might be an issue. While it is true that on a Windows console Ctrl-C also terminates programs, you can't actually copy/paste text...

    [ubuntu] Change BASH shortcut keys

    Hi:

    I've currently mapped Ctrl-C/V to copy/paste in Gnome-Terminal because I come from a Windows background. This causes an obvious problem because Ctrl-C is also used to send the SIGINT signal...

    [ubuntu] Re: Wrong UUID for Swap in fstab

    john/Tinivole: I followed the specified steps, and my swap partition has a UUID again. What was weird was that my swap partition previously lacked a UUID (it wasn't that it had the wrong one). ...

    [ubuntu] Wrong UUID for Swap in fstab

    Hi:

    I've recently started having some problems with my swap partition. When I start up my computer, often I get an error message that says Ubuntu couldn't mount the swap partition. After logging...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Run a graphical program as a different user

    Bump. Surely I can't be the only one who needs to run a graphical program as another user?
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Run a graphical program as a different user

    @tinivole
    Entering "export DISPLAY=:0.0" doesn't change anything.

    @roboguy
    Running with gksudo gives me this error:



    GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible...
  10. [ubuntu] Run a graphical program as a different user

    Hi:

    I'm trying to run gedit as a different user in order to create some configuration files. I used the following command:

    but I get the following...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Where to set environment variables for regular user?

    Sorry, I should have been more clear that


    A="foo"

    was setting the environment variable A to "foo", and not setting up an alias.

    To confirm, I only need to edit ~/.bashrc. If I wanted...
  12. [ubuntu] Where to set environment variables for regular user?

    Hi:

    I've been setting environment variables in the file /etc/environment, which has worked fine. However, I'd like to stop doing this because I'd like to have all of my settings in my home...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Make user account permanently Root (i.e., make Ubuntu like Windows XP)

    Perhaps some of the confusion also stems from the "want X, but ask for Y" problem.

    My original reason for wanting this is I'm tired of not being able to do what I want on my own system (sort of...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Make user account permanently Root (i.e., make Ubuntu like Windows XP)

    Err, I appreciate the warnings, but I think those of you warning me are missing the point. I'm not asking how to activate the root account - I'm already aware of how to do that, but it doesn't do...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Prevent Grouping of Volumes under "Removable Media" in Places

    Wow, thank-you very much for your effort. Unfortunately, I'm not too comfortable with compiling and installing my own gnome-panel, so I think I'll just stick with the current behaviour.

  17. [ubuntu] Re: Make user account permanently Root (i.e., make Ubuntu like Windows XP)

    mdurham: Thanks for understanding :)

    3rdalbum: I see.

    Ok... how about this: I start my GDM session by using "ssh -i [GDMSession]". Since all processes that I start after logging in will be...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: Make user account permanently Root (i.e., make Ubuntu like Windows XP)

    Thanks, but that isn't quite what I'm looking for. That only enables the root account (and will allow me to log into my system as root), which I can already do. What I want to do is be able to...

    Hi:

    I'm interested in the following: I would like to make my regular user account a root account. What I mean is that I want to emulate the behaviour of Windows XP (and older), where the default...

    It was a really simple (and stupid) error. I forgot that I had physically switched the order of my hard drives. Thus, the BIOS boot order was trying to boot first from the drive which contains my...
