i have a weird question, i need for a project to connect a PC to a device that actually only has USB port ready to read hard drive, my goal is to update the contents for the data that this device is "seeing", so basically to emulate a hard drive from the PC.
I would really like to configure compiz to emulate the Windows 7 edge actions. In case you haven't used Windows 7, the actions I'm interested in are: Drag window to top of the screen - maximize Drag window to left side of screen - take up the left half of the screen Drag window to right side of screen - take up the right half of the screen
Those are really the only ones I care about. I know I used to be able to do this in Karmic, but I forgot to back up my compiz settings when installing Lucid, and I can't remember how I had it configured before.
[Windows+Left] - Dock window to the left side [Windows+Right] - Dock window to the right side
When you press Windows + left arrow the active window occupies 50% of the screen (on the left), and when you press Windows + right arrow the active window occupies 50% of the screen on the right. I have tried to set this up with gnome on Ubuntu but have't managed it so far. I am sure this can be setup in gnome. How can it be done? In summary this splits two windows on the screen so one window occupies 50% of screen on left and the other on the right, how can this be setup and executed pronto on ubuntu?
I need to have a skype version which supports conference call. The linux version only supports if i call and not if someone call me, (at least as far as i know.) And as the windows version of skype does not work in wine, i have to find another solution. I heard Cedega Emulates? (does it only support games?)
I guess i can use virtual box and have skype in that but, wouldn't it be really slow to start skype then? (First start windows from virtualbox then start skype?
I would like to assign right-mouse-click behaviour to a hardware button. I can associate a keypress, or a combination of keypresses with an "xdotool click 3" command via the Gnome keyboard shortcuts.
I have the scancode of the hardware button so can use
setkeycodes scancode keycode
to mimic any key of my keyboard. However, I don't want the hardware button to mimic a single key of my keyboard that is already in use, since then the keyboard key will also activate xdotool.
So I think I need:
- either a way to associate that particular scancode with an (outlandish) keypress combo rather than a single keypress;
- or a keycode which is not currently in use, to bind to the scancode. Are there any like that and how would I find out? In the Gnome Keyboard Shortcuts list there is stuff like "XF86AudioMedia" which I'm not using -- but does that correspond to a numerical keycode value which setkeycodes understands?
I'm replacing an ancient Netware server with a new Ubuntu 8.04 box running samba and LDAP. I want to see if there's a way to get Samba to emulate the way permissions propagate through Netware. Namely, if I see a directory structure like this:
[User Cant See] --- [User Cant See] ------- User Can Edit.txt ------- User CANT Edit.txt
With Netware I can give permission to User to edit "User Can Edit.txt" and the permissions will propagate in reverse to allow User to see the two [User Cant See] directories and edit the text file. "User CANT Edit.txt" will still be invisible to User. This is very convenient as I can simply give user access to one file, they can navigate to it through the directory structure, and all files not explicitly given access to will still be invisible.
With Samba the only way I've been seeing to get this would be to explicitly give User access to both [User Cant See] directories, give him access to the "User Can Edit.txt" and remove any access to "User CANT Edit.txt" and every other file in the latter two nested directories.
I predominantly use Ubuntu at home, which means I am used to "highlight 'copies' and center click 'pastes'" (I believe this is true for all X-windows-sever machines, but I don't know). Unfortunately, that is not the behavior on the machines I use at work (I have a Mac and Win 7.). Is there an application which would let me imitate this mouse behavior for either of those OS's?
We are using a program who connect to other server using xterm over telnet. Our programmer needs to migrate t vt100 over ssh (why... I don't know cleary, but we prefer ssh because is more secure).But we have problems with some keys. If we press F8 program use another convination of keys and we can't find the way to modificate it.
Actually we are using something like that: Down: (byte)0x1B, (byte)0x4F, (byte)0x42 PageDown: (byte)0x1B, (byte)0x5B, (byte)0x36, (byte)0x7E
One of my computer is running MAC with nomachine installed to run CentOS5 remotely. I don't have external mouse. In apple, I use CTRL+mouse left click to emulate right-click, but it didn't work in linux. How to make it work?
Ubuntu Breezy 5.10 (don't suggest an upgrade - it works!) I'm trying to setup a script which updates some software on the hard drive from a directory on a USB Flash drive.After I've plugged in the USB drive and seen it recognised by automount:
ls -l /vol/USBDISKB
OK - shows me the directory and files.
#!/bin/bash if [ -d /vol/USBDISKB ]; then echo "Found USB drive" else
I am running Linux Ubuntu on a Dell Inspiron laptop that I bought at a garage sale for 50 cents. After spending quite a few hours resurrecting it, it works just fine except for the left and right mouse buttons on the touch pad. They do not function.Is there a way to emulate the left and right mouse buttons from the keyboard?(I know that I can just plug in a mouse, but I would rather just use the keyboard if possible.)
I'm looking for an open source/free network emulator tool that I could use on Mac OS X, to simulate a slow network connection, limited bandwidth and other network characteristics such as dropped packets etc for both UDP/TCP connections (or even on the physical layer).
I'm looking for the simplest solution that would allow me to run TCP/UDP servers and have a few clients connect to them on localhost emulating various network connections. I'm mainly wondering if I can use something like Linux's netem on Mac OS X (or even better cross-platform Windows/Linux/Mac). Perhaps I can run VirtualBox and a Linux kernel running netem, has anyone had luck with that?[URL]...
This is a USB shared drive, with an ext3 partition. The partition is located at /dev/sdb1. I use Samba to share /media/tiga1000/samba/public, and everyone on the network can add/delete files to it. Specifically, this is our media drive, and we upload a lot of pictures to it, since me and my sister are amateur photographers. Under /public/images/camera_pictures/2010, I have 3 directories. 01_january, 02_february, and 03_march. The directory that has been corrupted is 03_march, and when I say corrupted, I mean that I cannot open it. It acts as a unknown file type that can't be opened.
Here is the file properties of it: Code: drsmall@mycroft:/media/tiga1000/samba/public/images/camera_pictures/2010$ ls -lah total 960K drwxr-xr-x 4 nobody nogroup 4.0K 2010-03-11 21:22 . drwxr-xr-x 5 nobody nogroup 4.0K 2010-02-18 20:19 .. drwxr-xr-x 14 nobody nogroup 4.0K 2010-01-31 11:57 01_january drwxr-xr-x 10 nobody nogroup 4.0K 2010-02-23 15:47 02_february -r--r--r-- 1 nobody nogroup 938K 2010-03-11 15:46 03_march
How I should go about recovering it. Somehow it lost it's directory switch. Should I unmount the drive and run fsck on it? I would like to be able to recover these images, if it is at least possible!
I have recently reformatted my external hard disk to ext3, and now whenever I delete something via my file manager, a hidden directory (".Trash-1000") is made. I would like to keep this drive clean, is there any way to stop the directory from being made? I'm getting annoyed having to rm -r it every time I delete something.
Method of automatic backup from my hard drive to a usb drive when plugged in.
Basically I'll be constantly putting files in /home/downloads and I want it so when I plug in a NTFS usb drive it will automatically Cut(not copy) all the contents of that folder including other folders to my usb drive. Is there any well known programs that can do this?
I would prefer something that is in the repositories that is easily configurable via command line rather than some complicated script.
Ubuntu 10.04 (64)I have a second drive (currently mounted as /disk2).I want my home directory (/home/jb) to include this second disk as JUST a separate 'folder' accessible from my home area.want the data on the second disk to be encrypted, (just like my /home/jb folder is now).I would prefer to 'blend' the second drive into my existing setup.I'm looking for the safest way to achieve this, don't mind editing fstab etc. or getting my hands dirty on the cli.
As I regularly move between Mac and PC, I thought it would be a good idea to put all my data on an external drive. As Windows 7 and OS X have similar home folder layouts, I just simply put all the folders I need for both on the root of the external drive and changed a few settings so that the Home folder for my user is on the external drive on both Windows and OS X.
Whilst Ubuntu also has a similar structure, I cannot work out how to have it so that my users home folder is on the external drive. I have done a little research and all I can find is how to have the /home directory on another partition. a) this is not what I'm trying to do, just the folder for my user and b) this would mean formatting the external drive to extX format, which just wouldn't work for me.
I am using 9.10 (or will be once the upgrade is complete)
