Ubuntu :: How To Remove The Format Option

Jun 16, 2010

I would like to disable the option to format a hard drive on the drop down menu in computer. The reason being is that it is too close to the safely remove hardware option. I have one drive with about 15 years of stuff on it that I just use as a backup, and I don't want to accidentally hit the wrong button. What I was thinking of doing is going to that section of code and commenting that line out (that way I can just uncomment it if I want to format with the GUI tool). where can I find the code for that module?

Ubuntu :: Live USB Can Disable 'format' Option?

May 23, 2010

I have a Live install of ubuntu 10.04 on a USB drive which is really handy. I've changed some things around so it's just how I like it.However, if for example I'm using a computer running windows, and I plug this USB stick in, a popup appears asking me if I want to reformat the drive. I'd much rather not have this appear because an accidental misclick would make me have to do all the work of reinstalling/customizing my USB.

I know how to turn of the popup for a particular machine, but I was wondering if it's possible to deny permissions to format the USB if it's plugged into any computer. Best case scenario would be if you were to plug the usb into any computer and click 'format' you would get a message prompting for a password first (not the one for the computer, one relative to the USB) or something like that.

Server :: Rsync Log Format Option (--link-dest)?

Apr 1, 2010

I'm running rsync and outputting the log to a file using --log-file option. I am also using the --link-dest option, which in turn is adding the hard link creation output for EVERY file in the log file. I want to ONLY show the actual file transfer (if any) that take place.

In the 'log format' section of rsyncd man page here I assume you can do this, I just can't make sence about the code. If someone has better experience with reading it, can you please assist ?

OpenSUSE :: When Using The Yast Partitioner To Partition A USB Stick There Was No Option For The Ntfs Format

Apr 25, 2010

When using the Yast partitioner to partition a USB stick, I noticed there was no option for the ntfs format, but has the fat option. Is this a missing functionality/lib or by design? I have all of the ntfs stuff installed. I used to use gparted for this, but decided to make my self use the Yast tools. I like to keep them in ntfs format to get around the 4GB data transfer limit and have them readable by Linux and Windows.

Ubuntu :: Remove Yellow Square From Desktop / Configure" Box Does Not Have "remove" Or "delete" Option?

Jun 4, 2011

Since I plugged in and then unplugged in the firewire port a video camera, I have a note in the bottom-right corner of one of the desktops. It says 'libieee1284-3".

It's not a serious problem at all, I can live with it, but if there was a way to remove this yellow square from my pretty desktop I would like to hear about it .

I tried clicking and right clicking on it; it does nothing except I can access a tiny menu with - apparently - enlarge, refresh and configure buttons. Only the configure button (a spanner) does something, it opens a "configure" box which does not have a "remove" or "delete" option. Rebooting does not remove it.

Ubuntu :: How To Remove Option (Open With Microsoft Office)

Feb 9, 2010

I was checking out wine and installed ms office 2007 in it. But I ended up deciding (for the Windows programs that I needed to use, and the context in which I need them) to just install XP in a VirtualBox machine and use all my Windows programs there (not very many). So, I uninstalled wine and I did all of this that is recommended in the wine faq (to completely remove everything):

rm -rf $HOME/.wine
rm -f $HOME/.config/menus/applications-merged/wine*
rm -rf $HOME/.local/share/applications/wine
rm -f $HOME/.local/share/desktop-directories/wine*
rm -f $HOME/.local/share/icons/????_*.xpm

However, I now have an annoying issue. Microsoft office programs are the default opener of office documents. And since the programs no longer exist, this causes a problem. How can I remove the option to "Open With Microsoft Office ..." so that OpenOffice is the default?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Remove/disable Automatic Login Option

Jul 5, 2010

I've just installed Ubuntu 10.04 desktop. I've created two user accounts, one for admin purposes and the other for standard users. At boot up, I have the option to pick one of the created accounts or select "automatic login." When I select automatic login, it logs me into the admin account. I've double checked that the "don't ask for password" option is not selected on either account.

The only thing unusual that I did was select the "don't ask for password" option during the install, and then later (after the install was complete) decided that's not what I wanted and unchecked it.

I need to accomplish one of two things. Either change it so the auto login applies to the standard user account, or remove the auto login option from the login screen altogether.

Ubuntu Networking :: Sshd -D At Startup - How To Remove The -D Option

May 19, 2011

Somehow the -D option got tacked on to my sshd when I start up. How do I remove the -D option when sshd is started at boot? I'm guessing I need to edit something in /etc/init.d but not sure what. I checked System->Preferences->Startup Applications and the ssh server daemon isn't listed there. And since it is a command line option /etc/ssh/sshd_config is of no help.

General :: Remove Phantom Ubuntu OS Option In Boot Menu?

Sep 10, 2010

Originaly I had Win7 and Ubuntu (Ub) set up OK in dual boot. The Ub was on a seperate drive in its own partition - then the darn drive failed. Without reinstalling Uu I still get it as an option in the dual boot menu. If I do reinstall Ub I end up with a 2nd Ub option. How can I get the boot menu to show Win7 only, so that I can re-install Ub with only 1 entry in the boot table?
I have tried using bootrec.exe from the command line in Win7 recovery mode but that does not fix things.

Sep 10, 2010

I'm thinking of a few ways to do this I'm curious how many better/equal ways there are to do the same task.in a file with format like: 20 text Gi0/2 some other junk I have it reformatted to look like this before going in a database: 0/2 20 text. But for whatever reason some of the new input text looks like this now: 20 text Gi1/0/2 some other junk

My script makes it look like this: 1/0/2 20 text. I want it to remove the leading number and slash if the input file is in the new format.

Debian :: How To Get Rid Of Option To Remove Uni-booting Even Though Uninstalled Program

Sep 4, 2015

So I had decided to install debian but I thought I couls do it by myself without anything which I was wrong about, because I wound up installing Debian on my C: drive/windows partition. So far nothing has been bad and I am still running windows but now my C: drive has been renamed to "Install Debian GNU/Linux" I know the name doesn't mean shit but I'm curious why every time I go to change it it auto changes back. Also now every time it boots up it asks me to choose between UNetbootin, which i uninstalled, and windows. how do i get rid of the option to remove unetbootin even though I uninstalled the program. Same with Debian I deleted everything i could find but it still changes the drive name, how to fix any of this and might there be files I haven't found where would they be located?

Ubuntu :: Grub And Kernel Wubi Inside Windows - "format With No Backup Option"

Mar 30, 2010

I have been using Wubi for a few weeks now and I am really impressed. I have endured a lot of problems with grub and kernel problems etc but now realise that its just the Wubi inside windows! I have it all set up with the cube to perfection and all drivers are running great after a bit of tweaking. So a bit of a lazy question really, can I install it properly onto my drive, and retain all the hard work I have put in setting it up? I have tried, but when it comes to selecting the drive that the Wubi is installed on it just says format with no backup option.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ffmpeg / Mtv Format - Error "Unable To Find A Suitable Output Format For Output.mtv"

I'm still trying to find out if my coby mp3 player will actually play mtv video files as is advertised.

ffmpeg -formats does list mtv but the only command I really ever used was one to convert a vid to an mp3 so I tried Code: ffmpeg -i test.mp4 -acodec copy output.mtv it returns Code: Unable to find a suitable output format for 'output.mtv' I can't find any mtv files online for purchase or free for that matter, so I know this is all pretty obscure but shouldn't there be a way to convert them since ffmpeg lists mtv format?
