Ubuntu :: GUIs For The Steg Binaries (steghide And Outguess) - What Image File Format Works In Login Screen Face Lists

Jul 25, 2010

Looks to me like we're a baby-step behind Windows in not having GUI wrappers or frontends for the steganography (?) binaries I mentioned above. Or have my searches just not turned up the obvious GNOME solution?

Also, can someone tell me exactly what image file format works in login screen face lists, in place of the "generic user" icon one? And is there a command-line workaround to get unique ones assigned per-user? The "Login Window" utility in Ubuntu 9.10 seems a bit insistent on using the same image and path to images for all user icons -- hardly a user-friendly way of making user A's identifying icon different from user B's.

Fedora :: Unable To Root User In GDM Face Browser?

May 30, 2011

I'm trying to get the "root" user to be included in the list of users that get displayed on the login page.

I found this:[URL]...which seems to indicate that if I add an "Include" line, with the "root" user, that would work. I found the /etc/gdm/custom.conf file, which was empty except for the section header lines, so I added an "Include=root" line, but even after rebooting I just get the regular users, and have to login by typing the "root" username, etc.

So, I was wondering, is there a way to get this to work? P.S. I understand about not wanting to allow root logins, but I need to do this in my situation.

Fedora Installation :: Automatic Swap Detection And Mount?

Jun 8, 2011

I've installed FC 15 on a USB stick (it is not a live usb, it is a regular installation on a usb stick), and I am looking for a way to automatically detect and mount swap partitions on a host system where usb stick is plugged in. I am using many FC boxes and almost all of them have a swap partition on the hard drive and I would like to use them even if I boot my system from a usb stick.

Fedora Installation :: Audio Soundcard Detection Was Skipped During Install?

Oct 27, 2009

I put "%" before and after my username and name which gave the install an error. So I changed the username to one without the special character '%' but left the name with and the setup proceeded with an error and skipped the other three stages (sound testing, time, hardware setup). But everything seems fine with the install except I have not configured the sound card.

From what I have seen the install is pretty much fine other than the lack of functions which I obviously missed during the preference end section of the install. And so I was wondering is there a way to manually detect and use a easily configure a sound card or any way for that matter? The installation guide of Fedora 11 gives advice that was outdated 'system-configure-soundcard"(or something similar) has been removed since F9.


Currently have a few mixers installed which may be conflicting but the extra mixers were a symptom I created due to the no sound problem. The mixers are definitely not the major cause though. My onboard motherboard sound has not been set up as a module to be run is what I assume but any help would be great.

Ubuntu :: Gdm Face Browser Global Pixmaps Doesn't Work

Oct 29, 2010

I have a NFS mounted home dir, so i couldn't use .face for the users in the gdm Face Browser. In older Ubuntu versions I would have just put the images in /usr/share/pixmaps/faces/ and it worked.

For some reason that doesn't work any more. Can't tell you which was the last version it worked on, but i will try to find out and post later!

right now I use Ubuntu 10.10 with gdm 2.30.5

tried: jpg, png and username without extension also tried: /usr/local/share/pixmaps/faces/ and to configure it in /etc/gdm/custom.conf

couldn't find anything online, regarding the gdm doc for 2.30 it still should work that way!

Security :: Face-book Game 'Farmville' Wants Access To Ports?

My friends all request that I join Farmville so they can build their points. I don't play games but tried to oblige them. My firewall went nuts and I received requests to "open" certain ports. Can some one tell me what is going on and is this a security risk or not. I am 4 years deep into Linux and I haven't used microcrap in as many years but I am still learning, as there is so many things to master with Linux.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Webcam Real-time Face Recognition Software?

Dec 5, 2010

i'm working on a project, and I need a Software that's capable of recognizing face in real-time (I'll try to explain this, since my English is not that good) By this I mean that while my webcam is on (Not recording, I want it to be like a Videochat, where the recorded Images don't save on the HDD) it can recognize faces. I'm not that good on Linux, but I believe it's the best OS for the project I'm working on, since it's much more free than Microsoft.

Fedora :: Can't Login Into The Root Account: It Returns Me Immediately To The Login Prompt?

Jan 27, 2010

I just installed Fedora 12 on a laptop. I changed the default shell on the root account to /bin/tcsh and changed the runlevel to 3 and then rebooted. Now I can't login into the root account: it returns me immediately to the login prompt and I can't see any error message (the screen is cleared).Why is this happening?Can I boot into some sort of safe mode so I can undo my changes to the /etc/inittab and /etc/passwd file?I tried booting with a Live CD with the intention of mounting the filesystem and making the changes, but the new filesystem is a LVM and it won't let me mount it (or I don't know how to mount a Logical Volume).

Fedora :: FC9: Forgot - Partition Doesn't Work - Can't Login At The LUKS Login After Grub Starts

Feb 15, 2010

My computer was working this morning and both hard drives were working fine, then all of a sudden for about two hours I was stuck with this "problem", then after fumbling and moving and stablizing things, then Windows works? See below for details. I've finally reinstalled both hard drives, but the one with the Linux partition doesn't work: it says nothing is discovered on the disk. I can't login at the LUKS login after grub starts, therefore I can't get into Linux, but Windows works?! I used to be able to go directly into Grub when the computer starts, I forgot how to do that but it doesn't matter. If you need details I'd be glad to provide them. I just wondered why Linux doesn't work, but Windows does. I have Linux & Windows on two different separate hard drives

General :: Red Hat New Hardware Detection ?

Jan 20, 2010

If i install new hardware using a vmguest or physical system How can I detect it.


In AIX we just run cfgmgr -v. Is there a similar command in Red Hat?

I am guessing a reboot will pick it up if the device drivers are common enough and in the kernel already.

I want to know how to do this dynamically with the system on-line if possible.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 And Monitor Detection?

Jul 22, 2010

I opted to blow away my system (no did not save xorg.conf), and do a clean install of 11.3. Not a big deal to blow it away, nothing lost.

Dell Dimension C521, 3GB RAM, Athlon DualCore
OpenSuse 11.3 x64
Nvidia GeForce 6150LE (on mainboard)
Dell 2048FP 24" Monitor, connected via VGA

When doing the install, all appears to go well. I added the "nomodeset" option after the first boot to avoid the graphics issues. KDE comes up and is in 800x600 mode at 50hz. That is the best resolution it will show. All other options in the configure desktop applet are lower. This monitor was driven at 1900x1200 on the same config with 11.2.


In the nVidia-Settings applet (run as root), it shows the display as "CRT-0". 11.2 showed it as a Dell.

General :: Mp3 Any Beat Detection Software

Apr 9, 2010

Amarok 2 can search through music collection using ID3v2 tag's 'bpm' field. That would be very nice to retag the entire music collection so I can find the 'mood' of the track I like.However I've not found any beat-detection software that could have helped me. Have you ever used one? CLI, preferably. Also I'm interested if there's anything alike for tagging FLACs with the same 'bpm' field.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No DVI Detection In Karmic 9.10?

Apr 20, 2010

I have essentially been raised on Windows so I have no idea how to get DVI to work in Ubuntu. I have a Ubuntu/Vista desktop with an ATI Radeon X1350 graphics card. I can get picture from DVI when I boot into my Vista partition (the computer originally came with Vista and I have a Zune which will not work with Ubuntu ). But the moment I try to use DVI on Ubuntu: I have no picture. The ATI Radeon X1350 Pro is using the open source radeon driver. I know this from the System Testing diagnostic I ran when I finished setting up Ubuntu, the log file mentioned a line: Kernel module: radeon, underneath the section about my graphics card. That is about the limit of my Linux skills for right now, so any thoughts? If you need more information about my system I can comb through that log file which is still saved in my Fire Fox history.

Slackware :: Unable To Get Hdd Detection With ASUS M2A-MX

Sep 13, 2010

i got into serious harddrive detecting issues after an upgrade from slackware 12.2 to 13.0, it simply doesnt seem to find them anymore. ide drive giving lost interrupts and sata drive not being found. when i boot a slackware 13.1 install dvd i get the same issue. but when i boot a 12.1 slackware install dvd it works fine.

to me it seems that something changed in the kernel between these releases which causes this, but i wouldn't know what and how to fix it. i tried searching here and googling but probably not using the correct keyboards. anyone got a clue what to try? i find it hard to believe that this mobo / chipset (which arent the latest but not that old or weird either i believe) arent supported anymore.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Disable Monitor Detection In 11.4?

Mar 11, 2011

I've just upgraded to 11.4 and found myself with the same problem that I posted in Available resolutions vary depending if monitor is on or off when starting the system I'm using this pc as a server, and I acces to it most of the time via VNC, so the monitor is turned off almost all the time. If the pc boots while monitor is on, i have a resolution of 1280, if it's off I get 1024.

In the previous post I fixed this using the option "CustomEDID" in my xorg.conf, but this time I have no xorg.conf file to put this option in, and even if I did, since I'm using the default drivers (Nouveau, i think) instead of Nvidia oficial ones, i have no clue about how to obtain edid.bin. how to fix this without installing the propietary drivers? (since i don't need ant fancy 3d effects, kde seems to work fine and performance is ok)
