My brother is thinking of installing Slackware64 13.1 on his laptop. He was wondering though how to configure his wireless card. How would he do this? He is using an Intel wireless card, but I am unsure of the exact model. Another question is would Wicd do this automatically or do you still have to use either iwconfig or wpa_supplicant and edit the corresponding config files?
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'm a new Ubuntu user and a Python programmer, it's the first time that I use Python in Ubuntu so it's a bit confusing me. If I want to save a Module or something in a specified map, I get 'Errno 13', it says that I don't have permission to edit, do thing in that map. And this is also for importing files with Python. I logged in from Terminal with 'sudo -i' and closed Terminal, but the problem keeps repeating. How do I login as Admin or Root and stay as Admin or Root? I need right to edit/read files as well as root and normal user.
An example: Python file: test.py -> test = open('/a.txt', 'w') test.write('Test - Test - Test') test.close
When I execute this, I get in the Python IDLE the 'Errno 13' problem and below the 'Errno 13' it says that I don't have permission. Who know how to stay logged in as root, even if the user has not logged in or isn't this possible, if it isn't then I just want to get files moving, editing/erasing etc.
I have 2 harddisks 1 tb and 160 gb. In 1 tb fedora is installed. In 160 gb windows is installed. 1 tb is the master. 160 gb is not being detected. How to edit grub.conf file to edit the menu?

There I had legacy driver from nVidia but resolution was degraded to 640x320 and in their version 8.10 I cannot edit xorg.config (there was not anythig about resolution) I hoped in fedora i`ll fix this.
I recently upgraded from fc8. I am running two nvidia NVS 285 cards with four monitors and using nvidia driver 190.53-pkg1. I have one card up and running and can edit the config file and make to other two work I just can't get all four to work together.
I was trying to edit some files in /usr . so I did "chown -R username /usr" as root . after editing, I did "chown -R root /usr" !!!!! it made me unable to open Yast and VirtualBox and many other features and applications . is there anyway to fix this ? I think some files in /usr was not owned by root,
So let's say I entered some dir in MC as a regular user and there is a file with very long name which is not convenient to spell and I want to edit it with nano as root. In this directory I type in a command "sudo nano [name]" and autocompletion doesn't work because the TAB key is for another purpose in MC. Can I insert a name of selected file without typing it in MC?
When logged in as my standard user in Fedora 11 gnome desktop the installed ntfs-config tool will not open and gives an error which says this; "no authentication program found", and to run that ntfs-config as the root in a terminal. So then the only way to open that tool is to type that in a terminal, and it did open, but how can I fix this ? Can this issue be related to ownership and permissions of it ? Also the num lock does not come on during boot up, is there a easy fix for that too ? This is a recent fresh updated install from the DVD with the ext4 file system. All the ntfs-3g applications are installed as default, so I just added that enable ntfs write support tool with the package manager.
I've got a situation where I would normally use NFS, but cannot. So in it's place I need to use a samba share (even though it's linux -> linux). I need it completely open and world writeable as if I had done an rw in an NFS export. I thought I had it as when logged in as a user I can edit delete etc. however the apache user seems to be struggling with creating files.
Here's my smb.conf as it stands. Code: [global] workgroup = WGRP server string = Samba Server Version %v security = user passdb backend = tdbsam unix extensions = no
[sites] comment = Sites Directory path = /var/www/sites public = yes guest ok = no write list = siteusr writeable = yes create mask = 0777 browseable = no security mask = 0777 directory security mask = 0777 note that the drive is mapped as user siteusr
So I need to become the root user in order to edit a grub file in a seperate partition, so I can get back into this partition. How can I become and stay as root user in the desktop environment? (I know you shouldn't do this, but I need it.)
I'm running Ubuntu Server 11.04 with OpenSSH, trying to create an ssh tunnel (for web traffic) to it from my (also Ubuntu) laptop. This is the command I'm using to create the tunnel:
Code: ssh -ND localhost:8080 firstname.lastname@example.org I had it all working on a virtual machine.. which was deleted What settings/lines do I need to change/add from the default OpenSSH config files to get tunnelling to work? I've Googled and AllowTcpForwarding is set to yes, as is X11Forwarding.. but it still doesn't work. Chrome can connect to the server, but says the connection was closed before any data was sent.
I want to edit the config file of an application I have installed and the documentation says that the config file is per-user and therefore stored in "~/". Which folder is that? The app itself is installed in "/usr/local/bin/".
I have just installed F11 and want to change Nautilus to default Ubuntu and not open each folder in separate window. But I can't go to Edit/Preferences.Nautilus keeps crashing and I get this report:Quote:
Using xubuntu 11.04, how do I maually give myself a static IP address and other IPv4 settings? I see the edit connections panel and saved a setting there but can't see how to use that setting. The only useable setting when I'm connected by ethernet is Auto eth0.
I need to change a game's screen resolution in a couple of .con files, but when I double click on them all I get is success in a little pop up window. Can I move them to my computer, edit them with a text editor, and reinsert them with read only privileges?
