Ubuntu :: Gnumeric Argues \ Opened It And Then Get A Dialog Warning Me The File Already Exists?
Dec 22, 2010
Whenever I edit a spreadsheet in Gnumeric, I have to have an argument about saving the edited version. First, it says it wants to save it in Gnumeric's XML format instead of whatever format I opened it in, and then I get a dialog warning me the file already exists,is it OK to overwrite it? All my spreadsheets are either .odt or .csv. I just want to be able to open, edit and save without an argument every time. It's like telling a child that it's bed time and having the same argument every night, and it's getting on my nerves.Is there a setting where I can get gnumeric to obediently save the edited version, or do I just have to put up with the slower opening times of LibreOffice instead?
I am still probably of the windows mindset when it comes to security. I ran rootkit this morning and received the following error messages;
[09:43:49] /usr/sbin/unhide [ Warning ] [09:43:49] Warning: The file '/usr/sbin/unhide' exists on the system, but it is not present in the rkhunter.dat file. 09:43:49] /usr/sbin/unhide-linux26 [ Warning ]
Upgraded my 11.2 system to 11.3 today. Can't login anymore using gdm or xdm login window. The password prompt is displayed but no chars are echoed in the password field. when you click Login, it displays "Authentication failure" in the window. The logged messages in the /var/log/messages for the gdm-greeter are:
gdm-simple-greeter: GLib-GObject-WARNING: gsignal.c:2273: signal 'dialog-hidden' is invalid for instance '0x81299b8' gdm-simple-greeter: Gtk-WARNING: gtkwidget.c:5628: widget not within a GtkWindow gdm-session-worker: gkr-pam: couldn't get the password from user: Conversation error gdm-session-worker: pam_unix2(gdm:auth): conversation failed
Note that I can login at init level 3 as root of the user I"m attempting to login with in the gdm window.
I have an application for loading data into MySQL table using php, through excel-Reader. php is set up on the localhost and the web-page is available from: [url]
The code of xlr2.php:
When I open the page, I get the message to choose a file with the file-dialog box and the notice as:
Notice: Undefined index: action in /var/www/html/xlr/xlr2.php on line 10
Choose a file to Load into MySQL:
Why so? I am selecting file from ("/home/lx/myDocuments/tech/excel/smslist.xls"), but the warning says that [failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/html/xlr/xlr2.php on line 33]. A different directory than I selected.
I have this wma file that I want to play and I looked around and found alot of ways to make this happen. However, none has work for me. But first let me explain my problem. I have these wma files that just wont work but they worked once before. Now when I try to open the files all I get is some message that the file can not be opened. I have done many efforts to make it work including things like medibuntu. BTW, there was this once moment that when I tried to open the file it PLAYED! but then after it did not open.
I'm not 100% sure if this is the right spot for it, but I'm having trouble unzipping files. I've downloaded a good few fonts from dafont.com, from different authors and with different browsers and I still get errors. First I opened the .zip with Archive Manager
Code: 7-Zip 9.04 beta Copyright (c) 1999-2009 Igor Pavlov 2009-05-30 p7zip Version 9.04 (locale=en_ZA.utf8,Utf16=on,HugeFiles=on,2 CPUs) Error: /media/42E6F8E2366C0906/Fonts/panhead.zip: Can not open file as archive Errors: 1
I then tried Code: ross@Ross-PC:~$ unzip /media/42E6F8E2366C0906/Fonts/panhead.zip and got this output Code: Archive: /media/42E6F8E2366C0906/Fonts/panhead.zip End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive.

I do have p7zip-full installed, but it isn't a .7zip file?
I have scenrio where i have to check first whether the files exists or not then count of records should not be equal to zero and file should be of current day not the previous day then only process my next task.There are three files totally.please let me know how to write script to achieve the same.
I have a rather strange issue I'm attempting to fix here. One of the servers I work with had a log file reach 2GB in size and stopped logging. The software which is logging to said file cannot be stopped or restarted and does not provide a way to rotate log files -- poor design, I know. So in my infinite wisdom (or stupidity, however you want to read that), I truncated the log file in place with:
Code: >vmsproxy.log When I realized the log file was not being appended to, I checked lsof output and it
Is it possible to set up a udev rule that will check if a file exists on a USB drive?
I've got a few ubuntu servers in environments with some very not-techy peoples. Im hoping to get to the point where I can give them a few USB sticks with scripts on them, and if they plus one of these sticks in it will be mounted in, say, /media/special (rather than /media/usb0..7) and then the script would be run. But if a usb drive without special.sh is inserted, it should be mounted to /media/usb0..7 as normal.
I've been googeling for udev rules, and it seems simple enough to specify a mount point based on brand/model/serialnumber/etc... but i havent been able to find anything about checking for the existance of a file.
Tho the more i think about it, the more im starting to think its not going to be that straight forward. Can udev check for a file on a drive before that drive is mounted? Is it going to be a case of mounting every drive to /media/usb0..7 then having a script run that will check for the file, and if its there change the mount point before running special.sh?
I have a directory called /data In this directory I have some files like abcejb.jar,12_ab_ejb.jar, shejb.jar, test I need a shell script like... 1st I want to check if there is any ejb file exists in the directory using some condition If ejb files exists I want to redirect the ejb files list to a file called list. Now I want to copy all the files in the list file to some remote system.
we have installed vignette software on the linux box and would like to uninstall it. To uninstall it we need to delete one file named vpd.properties. When we used locate vpd.properties, the file is found in 2 places. But when we used the ls -a in those locations the file is not seen. basically we want to remove that file. If we do rm vpd.properties, this also doesn't work. Also when we used find -H vpd.properties the file is not found. What is wrong here. I am sure the file vpd.properties will be added to file system as part of vignette. Can anyone suggest what could be wrong here.We logged in as root user to remove this file. Installation is done twice using root and vignette user ids. Thats why file is located in 2 places.
I have a script that runs each day at 6am and looks for files created within the last day and outputs the text to a file which it emailed to me. Im wanting to change it so that it would say something like "phone system backup complete" or "websense back complete" and say fail if its not there.
On both my 32-bit laptop (openSUSE 11.3) and my 64-bit desktop (openSUSE 11.2) I have been unable to find out how to prevent seeing all the "hidden files" when opening files in many applications, including (for example) GIMP, Xournal, OpenOffice, gedit.In the Control Centre "File management" options "Show hidden and backup files" is NOT checked in "File Management Preferences.
Is it possible to do the following in C/C++ in Linux:Without direct linking (my program should NOT depend on Qt or GTK), display a GTK or Qt based file dialog.The behaviour should be something like this when my program runs, when you want to open a file:The program scans whether you have Qt installed. If so, it somehow manages to link itself to Qt (e.g. dynamically loading the .so file) and display its file dialog and get the path from it. If Qt wasn't found, it tries the same with GTK. If that also wasn't found, it displays a less powerful replacement dialog instead (better than nothing).
Or is there any other simple way in Linux to get a standard file dialog somehow (similar to when compiling for Windows you can very easily get its standard file dialog, no matter what version of Windows, in your code, even if your program doesn't use any other Windows GUI at all).
When I am opening the synaptic manager its showing the following error: E: Encountered a section with no Package: header E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_main_binary-i386_Packages E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened. E: _cache->open() failed, please report. So How can I open it?
I keep getting this messageCould not initialize the package informationAn unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:'E:Encountered a section with no Package: header, Eroblem with MergeList var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_main_bina ry-i386_Packages, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.'
I was transferring some files from my laptop (running FC6) to a server at my work (don't know what kind) with "scp -rpC" and it stalled, don't know why. Now when I try to delete the files from the server so I can start again I get the following error message
After booting I noticed that sometimes nmb was not running. The command # service nmb status gives nmbd dead but pid file exists The timestamp of the pid file suggests that at the last shutdown the pid file was not removed, and I guess this prevented nmb to start properly during booting (Although during booting the messages is [OK]).
If I shut down nmb manually, everything is fine. I checked the log in /var/log/samba/log.nmbd and it doesn't show any error. As mentioned, this occurs only occasionally, and I have no idea what may be causing this.
This script that I found online does the job it promises. it does convert the files to mp3 without an issue. What I need to include now is an if statement that says If $file.mp3 exists then delete $file.wav
Code: #!/bin/sh # name of this script: wav2mp3.sh # wav to mp3 # Credit to the script creator (Nikesh Jauhari):
After that I'm stumped as to how to do the if statement
I'm running CentOS 5.3 64bit and from the get go I've had problems with the Apache serverMore specifically, on what seems to be a random occurance, the apache server stops to respond.The process is still running, but nothing happens with it, and it is not responding.The /var/logs/httpd/error_log is blank for the occurance and only shows an entry after I give it a restartSo I'm a bit confused about what is going on.With that said, I need to make sure the httpd is working one way or another.I don't want to force a restart service every 10 minutes as this seems a bit too much.However, I do want to have the following:run a crond every minute to do:
rm -Rf /root/testarea/* wget http://ip/work.gif then check if work.gif exists.
