I have gpg (not sure how to check the version) installed and running nicely. I am attempting to publicize my public RSA key to various key servers, but even tho everything seems to work nicely in actuality it does not.
When I check that particular (and others after similar attempts) keyserver for my e-mail address it only finds my old, revoked key. How can I get publishing my RSA key from the command line to work in actuality?
I don't know if this is a configuration issue or a hardware issue, but I have a Kinesis Advantage USB keyboard and for some reason the F3-F5 keys aren't responding as they used to. They don't respond to anything and, when I tried using F5 on Emacs, it said <XF86AudioNext> is undefined, so I guess it's a weird mapping problem.
Any idea how I could remap them to the original meaning?
I'm running Debian (Squeeze) and I have a toshiba portege m700. It has five buttons on the front just under the screen, which are the only ones accessible when you flip the screen over into tablet mode. One of them is for rotating the screen, and another is for switching to external display. I want to remap the remaining three to control, alt and super so that I can use shortcuts with the stylusThe problem is, when I used showkey to find out the key codes, I found out that each button generates more than one key code:Button 1:
key 126 press >> super_r, although this is distinct from the actual super key (125) key 7 press >> 6 key 7 release key 126 release
" > logfile.txt : gives an error extra character after the "
2- logsave logfile.txt 'send "show command;
" ': error invalid command
3- i simply tried to send the output of the whole script to file logsave /home/logfile ./script : seems that logsave work under root only
4- ./script > logfile : the problem with this is that the output of echo or (read "enter your id") command will not be displayed on the screen (actually nothing will be displayed, i have to open the log file to see the output). is there any way to save the log of the "send" ? or to save the log of the complete script without hiding the output on the screen?
I'm writing a script that will send an alert email given certain conditions. I have the impression that sendmail is what I need to do that. I just don't know how to use sendmail at all. I assume I have to set it up like a typical mail client so that it has a mail server to log into to send from.
I've looked through the man pages, but I can't find anything in plain English there on how to set it up, or how to use it once it is set up.
I'm in my terminal and do git pull, git push alot in a work day. On the server I'm pulling and pushing I can't do password less ssh the usual way by generating rsa keys.Is it still possible perhaps for me to enter my password once for a session and do all the git pulls/pushes I want?
I installed SSH server on my ubuntu-server last night, following this online Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/server...sh-server.htmlThen I tried to generate the public and private keys.root@ubuntu-server:~# ssh-keygen t dsaGenerating public/private dsa key pair.Enter file in which to save the key (/root/.ssh/id_dsa):
I was trying to install subversion on Ubuntu with the command "apt-get install subversion" .

I am failing to log in on a NIS client server. I input the login name and takes long to bring password prompt. It then gives an error :Login timed out after 60 seconds. A boot message also appears : No NIS server found when it attempts to start ypbind.I am stuck since I need to correct the NIS configuration on the server. How do I login then into the server.

I'm interested in storing my SSH keys and gpg keys on a smartcard for added security. However, I'm a bit uncertain on a few points, which are as follows:
How many keys can I get on a card? I assume both SSH and GPG can store keys on the card. Is there a limit to key size? I see a lot of cards saying they support 2048-bit keys, what about larger sizes? Hardware: can anyone recommend a card/reader combination that works well? I've done a fair amount of research and it seems PC/SC readers can be a bit iffy - is this your experience? Have I missed anything I should be asking? Are there any other hurdles?
I'm aware fsf europe give away cards with membership - I'm not sure I want to join, but... are these cards any good?
I have accounts on two machine: H1 and H2. I created ssh keys on H1 and installed it on S1. I can now ssh to S1 from H1. I want to do the same from H2. How do I install the ssh keys generated on H1 on H2?
I am trying to debug ssh permissions and keys. I am able to connect as root. However, I am unable to login as a new user (e.g., newuser). I have been trying to ssh as localhost to debug the issue. For example:
>ssh -vvvv newuser@localhost
will yield a lot of information. I think this is the relevant section, however, I am unable to resolve:
debug1: Host 'localhost' is known and matches the RSA host key. debug1: Found key in /root/.ssh/known_hosts:2 debug2: bits set: 533/1024
I have tried making this substitution using both of
Sed operates with no comment but does nothing. awk objects to the variables content because they include the occasional non-breaking-space. The presence of these is essential so that bash will properly distribute the content of each line to an array.
The content of "orc" and "orch" is as follows (the non-breaking-spaces show as *).
I had/have a dual boot Win7, Ubuntu machine and wanted to replace Ubuntu with Fedora 14. I booted from the Fedora cd and was going through the settings when the install froze (I think it was after clicking Next from the partition settings screen) and I had to do a cold shut down of the computer.
The computer now takes a long time to get to the Grub loader (timing out while looking for the cd rom I believe is what is happening) though it seems to boot fine. The problem is that the Windows OS now does not recognize the cd rom, or rather, it is present in the device manager, but will not respond via the OS (cannot be accessed via command line nor gui) nor from pushing the "Open" button on the hardware itself. It seems as if the device has been locked at some lower level.
Any idea how to 'unlock' the device? I can't boot from the cd anymore (the bios recognizes the presence of the device, but that is it) and I don't know how else to rectify the situation. I haven't tried booting to ubuntu yet (as I don't think anything was actually changed while attempting the Fedora install) but I am new enough to linux as to not know what to do if I could boot to it.
I use Thunderbird on Ubuntu Linux and have just upgraded to Ubuntu 10 / Thunderbird 3. One of my gripes however is that Thunderbird uses a number of shortcut keys that have no secondary key requirements, for example, "Mark as Read" is M. Not ControlM. Just M. Worse, "Mark as Junk" is J. Which means I sometimes inadvertently mark messages as Junk.
How can I customize Thunderbird's shortcuts so, for example, "Mark as Junk" is ControlJ?
I have a Mac keyboard where the Alt/Win (i.e. Option/Command) keys are inverted compared to a regular PC keyboard, and I'd like to swap them. I haven't had any luck with xmodmap so far. The standard configuration is as follows:
On windows I have an autohotkey script which: - Only works when caps lock is on - Generates left, middle and right mouse button events when left control, menu and alt keys are pressed - Allows holding the keys down (for dragging objects) Is there an easy way of duplicating this functionality in linux?
