Debian Configuration :: Edit The "open" And "open With" List?
Jul 1, 2011
To illustrate what I wish to learn I will begin with a specific example: Open With.jpg Suppose I create an empty file and rename it as 1.torrentRight click on the file and go to the "Open with" tab We find a list of applications to open the said file.
I have some errors when run the mount -all command: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc5, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail† or so Failed to open /proc/filesystems: No such file or directory
Is there a way to permanently, completely and utterly disabling the "feature" that stops me from opening my CD drive? I suspect it is the same thing that asks me if I want to play/mount/etc things when I plug them in. I don't - I just want to be allowed to use my computer without silly hindrances and interruptions. What is it that tries to take over my computer in this way?
I have just switched over from firestart to gufw.I have set all incoming traffic to deny and all outgoing traffic to allow.I have rules set for incoming traffic, and have only opened 1 port on my system for torrents. My router also only has the same port opened which again is for torrents.I use "Network Tools" which is included on squeeze and do a portscan of 192.168.1.100 and 127.0.0.1 I get all kinds of crazy ports coming back as opened. What is even stranger is if I do a few scans, these ports change, so one port on one scan may come up as open, then it will disappear and a different port may show as open.
Mind you none but the torrent port is forwarded in my router, I have no idea what any of these other ports are, or why they are even showing up.What the heck is going on? I dont think this is normal? Am I at any higher risk for attack?
When I open an open office document from an NFS share it always opens as readonly. This was a problem I had on Arch linux and the fix was to change the locking options in the soffice script but I've tried that fix here and it doesn't work. I've seen a lot of discussions but they all go back to changing the locking options in soffice, has anyone got any alternative fixes or one that definitely works with locking?
I installed Open Office 4 on Debian 8 but when I run the program I get this error message.
root@localhost:/home/paul# openoffice4 No protocol specified No protocol specified /opt/openoffice4/program/soffice.bin X11 error: Can't open display: Set DISPLAY environment variable, use -display option or check permissions of your X-Server (See "man X" resp. "man xhost" for details)
Open Office works fine when I run the command "startx" in the Konsole but so far I haven't been able to configure it.
I just set up a computer with debian (im no linux expert) and now i have trouble with getting the packages for my graphics card (its an RV635)
Im tried to do it like this page says: [URL]....
However when i try to Code: Select allapt-get update he throws an error:
W: Fehlschlag beim Holen von http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/dists/jessie/Release Erwarteter Eintrag ¬Ľnonfree/binary-amd64/Packages¬ę konnte in Release-Datei nicht gefunden werden (falscher Eintrag in sources.list oder missgebildete Datei)
I'm trying to get my Intel HM55 GMA HD graphics card to work in Debian Lenny.As the vanilla Xorg didn't have any support for it, I manually compiled the last stable Xorg source (1.7.1 - such a pain) and the Intel driver. But when I try to launch X, I get the following message :
(EE) GARTInit: Unable to open /dev/agpgart (No such file or directory) (EE) intel(0) : /dev/agpgart is either not available, or no memory is available for allocation. Please enable agpgart.
I've just installed Debian Squeeze from a live CD. When I open a web browser (be it iceweasel or epiphany) and try to go to google.com, it tells me it can't resolve the host name. [Edit: They do, however, allow me to go anywhere on debian.org, minus the search feature] I also get the same error when I try to go to my website running on a local server. However, when I type the server's IP address (192.168.0.10), it goes to the website fine. Basically, any program I run that needs to resolve a host name returns an error, with the exception of the host command:
I've tried changing my DNS server IP from 192.168.0.1 (my router, configured to provide DNS) to 192.168.1.254 (my internet modem, also configured to provide DNS). That didn't help any. Then I changed my DNS server IP to the same one used by the modem, and now everything works.
I've tried googling my way out of the issue, and I've found where someone had the same issue as I've got and fixed it by adding "blacklist ipv6" to their /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file, but that didn't work for me.
So, recap: Why does resolving domain names fail for certain applications (except the "host" program) when the DNS server IP is that of my router or modem (which works fine for all of my other computers), but suddenly works when I point the computer straight to my ISP's DNS servers, and how can I permanently fix the problem?
I have a Broadcom BCM4312 LP-PHY in this machine. I was informed theres an open source driver for broadcom cards (brcm80211), but it doesn't seem to support this chipset. In the spirit of Debian, is there another driver available?
I'm trying to install the openconnect VPN client on a server machine, Debian 7 Wheezy, and APT is trying to install a lot of dependencies. I think it's trying to install the whole desktop environment.I was searching the web but all articles are for desktop machines and nobody mentions my problem with the dependencies. I also have openconnect installed in two Gnome desktop machines without problems.
This is the output:
Code: Select all# apt-get install openconnect Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† Reading state information... Done
I have this one comp with an Radeon (MSI-R7850) card in it and its been working fine untill I tried to open Blender (3D creation Studio) today. Blender pops open and crashes. I opened it in command line to get the output but I dont know where to go from there. Blender used to work just fine on this comp. does on my others (they're NVidia).

I am using a kernel with no initrd. I have had this kind of panic before. Usually it means that the kernel can access the hard drive because the driver for the controller or filesystem isn't built into the kernel.
The kernel is 2.6.34 vanilla.
My IDE controller is a Silicon Integrated Systems SiS 5513, and I built the driver for it into the kernel BLK_DEV_SIS5513=y
My /boot (hda1) is ext2, and everything else is ext3
My grub entry (hda2 is my root partition) kernel (hd0,0)/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2
I am trying to set up a wireless 'test' box to use on a private club (11,000 acres). The initial tests won't need anything fancy, it will just be checking the visibility of a hotspot from a high-point in the middle of the property. But if it proves to have good visibility, later tests will be (hopefully) promoted by the club and made aware to members. I would like to set up a captive portal to redirect them to a comments page where they can post a quick message if they were able to connect ....
Most of the examples I see online of captive portal are based on having an internet connection and/or a NAT scheme set up. I just need a hotspot and a single web-page for these promotional tests. If possible, I would like to trigger any devices capable to suggest or otherwise open a browser to go to the promotional landing page ...
Also, one more quick question, this is to eventually be an 'open' internet for this test - most of the wpa set-up examples show using a passkey. Is making an open wifi as simple as not including the passkey or is there something else I would need to be doing?
I have a java application that I wrote recently. It runs off port 9955. The application runs great on my mac server. When I installed it on my linux box i cant get to it from outside the box. A port scan shows the port as closed. I flushed my iptables, did not help. I can telnet into the app locally, from the server and it works great. I cannot telnet from outside the server. I have a reference to the application in /etc/services as a tcp port (which it is).
I am trying to use thunderbird to connect to gmail. followed the instructions on the gmail help section to set up thunderbird and opened ports 995 for pop and 465 smtp on my router. When that did not work I posted on the thunderbird forum. It was decided there I had a problem with debian since both the thunderbird and router settings were right. doing more research I used nmap and netstat to check for open ports and it seems to me I only have tcp 80 and udp 138 open. downloaded firestarter hoping to solve the problem but in the events section it does not show thunderbird trying to connect to any port. Is this a case of not understanding what I am looking for here. Is there some way to open all ports on debian and then using firestarter to block the traffic I do not want.
I have some pdf files on a usb stick which I want to edit, Evince cannot do this, and if I try to open in Libre there is no option to import pdf there either. Is there an app. or plugin for libre to allow this

I don't have Linux yet but I'm almos ready to change from windows to Linux. I'm working on a web site that I built with Frontpage. I did a lot of works on it and I just want to know if they have an open source compatible with linux that could open and let me edit the projet I already beguin? I realy don't want to loose all my work! So I need to know if is possible before I change to Linux.
When I try and run gedit command through terminal to edit files it won't open them
