  1. [SOLVED] Re: How can I kill the desktop and then start it up again?

    I believe the proper usage is:


    sudo service gdm stop

    And in 11.10:


    sudo service lightdm stop
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Remove fake drives spaces in their names from /media

    I know right? And Microsoft would NEVER sue anyone over patents. Why that would just be so unfair! :P

    I don't think Dash's echo really needs the -e to use backslashes.

    Run gconf-editor, navigate to apps/nm-applet, and set the keys whatever way you want.
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Remove fake drives spaces in their names from /media

    ???

    You mind doing a:


    sudo blkid

    and copy/paste the output? Not quite sure what the problem is.

    [SOLVED] Re: Syntax error near unexpected token 'elif'

    You have matching "done"s for all your "for"s? I think 61 might be the problem.

    [SOLVED] Re: I'm on this C program

    Actually, in many cases, you'll find that logging is your only form of debugging. It's similar in principle to using printf (except that your output goes to a file rather than an open console).

    [lubuntu] Re: strange problem with leafpad and osmo

    In the English version of Leafpad's Open dialog, you would look for a control called Character Coding. You probably need to change that to something (since I'm getting the impression that there's an...

    Re: News for Mint fans

    Interesting. Not surprisingly, the bottom panel and the window list have the most work left to do. The menu just needs a little drag and drop and it'll be done. :D

    AskUbuntu is a Q&A site, designed with that in mind. The forums here are more geared around chronological discussions, and not necessarily Q&A.

  25. [ubuntu] Re: Can't get 32 bit applications to work on 64 bit Ubuntu 10.10

    You could try


    sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i mydebfile.deb

    I suppose I'm obligated to warn that this could break your system, loss of data, etc. FWIW, it usually works.
