    Re: Commandline Trash Utility

    One problem I've found with the trash-cli package is that it fails on files in a mounted filesystem whose mount point is not writable by me, since it tries to put trashed files into a subdirectory of...
  2. [kubuntu] Re: Last night's updates seems to have broken Intrepid

    Things seem to be better for me since I disabled paravirtualization in my virtual machine, so probably I'm experiencing a different problem.
  3. [kubuntu] Re: Last night's updates seems to have broken Intrepid

    I don't know if it's related, but I upgraded Ubuntu 8.04 to 8.10 yesterday on a virtual machine running under VMware Fusion on a Mac OS X host OS, and ever since the upgrade I've been getting regular...

    Re: Commandline Trash Utility

    Thanks for the update! I've downloaded the new version, and it no longer displays those warnings. I'll let you know if I see that error again.

    Re: Commandline Trash Utility

    Over time, I've noticed two problems with the utility.

    First, it displays several warnings when I trash something in another directory (although the command succeeds):

    Re: Commandline Trash Utility

    Someone should package this up and add it to Ubuntu's packages repository.
  7. [ubuntu] Re: kernel 2.6.24-21 compiled with gcc 4.2.3, but latest stable gcc is 4.2.4

    I decided to try compiling the tools anyway, and so far so good. It's been about a week, and I haven't noticed additional instability. gnome-terminal crashed a few times after the change, but it...
  8. Re: How to: install Chatzilla as a stand alone program

    Note: Chatzilla 0.9.84 is now available (from the Chatzilla on XULRunner web site), and its files all have the correct permissions, so there's no need to fix them.

    Note: for the Chatzilla 0.9.83 package available from http://chatzilla.rdmsoft.com/xulrunner/, the specific files with incorrect permissions are the following (inside the /usr/lib/chatzilla...
  11. Re: How to: install Chatzilla as a stand alone program

    It's not a good idea to randomly "make everything readable and executable." It's better to fix the specific permissions that are wrong so that they are correct.

    For the Chatzilla 0.9.83 package...

    I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 with all recommended updates.

    I recently applied the kernel update from 2.6.24-19 to 2.6.24-21, but when I try to reinstall VMware tools (I'm running Ubuntu in a VM on...

    [ubuntu] Re: updatedb errors

    This problem is caused by the mlocate package not installing its /etc/updatedb.conf file. Instead, it leaves the previous implementation of locate's /etc/updatedb.conf file in place, but it doesn't...

    Re: Commandline Trash Utility

    Thanks, this is just what I was looking for! In 7.10 I used to just |mv <files> ~/.Trash|, but in 8.04 it's more complicated, and it seems better to use a tool that understands GNOME's new trash...
