Ubuntu :: Way To Edit Pdf As Ether .odt Or .doc File

Jun 22, 2010

I need a way to edit a pdf as ether a .odt or .doc file and I read that I should be able to do that using Kword so i installed kword. However, when I try to open or import a .pdf there not listed at all. When I looked in the file format filter drop down menu I don't see PDF. I look in synaptic for any additional packages I might need and I didn't find anything that helped. I also did find and useful documentation on the koffice website.

Networking :: Won't Boot When Ether Cable Unplugged Or In New LAN?

Mar 20, 2010

I ended up inheriting an IBM Intellistation Z Pro desktop with Red Hat 2.6.9-78.0.17.EL, that used to be part of a company network (hard IP, domain, etc). I'm trying to boot and connect to my home internet provider.With or without ethernet cable connected, the boot process seems to timeout on a number of steps (system logger, NFS Statd, automount5) and eventually get's stuck in NFS quotas.I started looking at /etc (in single user mode) and of course there are a bunch of files (hosts, resolv.conf, etc) with hard IPs, domains, etc.My questions are:- how hard is to change network setting to use soft IP and be able to connect to my provider

Ubuntu :: Can't Edit A File

May 7, 2010

I am trying to edit a C++ source file, but gedit wont allow me to save changes to it. Gedit says:

Code:
A file with the same name already exists. Please use a different name.

Right. Of course the file exists, I am trying to edit an existing file.

About the same happens with kate... Kate opens the file in read-only mode.

However, if I edit the same file with nano, editing and saving works. So the problem shouldn't be with access rights. Also "ls" shows rw rights to the file.

What could be the problem? I can use nano, but I would need the syntax highlightind, and other features of a better editor.

And whether I use sudo or not has no effect. The same happens with or without sudo, and I am the owner of the file.

PS. luckily I am still dual booting with Hardy. I can always go back.

Oh and this is a new installation of ubuntu 10.04

Ubuntu :: How To Edit File Owned By Root

May 31, 2010

I am trying to edit limits.conf, changed file permissions:
sudo chmod limits.conf -rwxrwxrwx

But got this message:
"Could not save the file /etc/security/limits.conf. You are trying to save the file on a read-only disk. Please check´╗┐ that you typed the location correctly and try again."

I followed these instructions:
"copy - paste this code into terminal
gedit $HOME/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/Open as root
copy-paste this text into that file and push 'save'
for uri in $NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_URIS; do
gnome-sudo "gnome-open $uri" &
done

now copy-paste this code into terminal
chmod +x $HOME/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/Open as root

Now you can right click on the file you want to edit, select 'scripts' and say 'open as root' to let you modify it". [URL] the right click worked but the file didn't open.

Ubuntu :: How To Edit The /etc/default/grub File

Oct 22, 2010

I've been using 10.04 for a few months without any problems, but today, I tried to boot into Ubuntu and just got a black screen. I tried the tutorial on this site, and it worked.

I have to do this after every reboot unless I edit the /etc/default/grub file (the second part of the tutorial). I'm not sure how to go about doing this since the article is very vague.

Ubuntu :: Edit (adding) Audio In Mkv File

Apr 1, 2011

I have a few music videos in mkv format that are edited. I'm trying to replace the words that have been edited out, but having trouble aligning the audio and saving a finished product. In Windoze I would use Goldwave and/or Multiquence for any simple editing needs. I tried using Multiquence via wine, but it needs DirectX and winetricks isn't enough to alleviate the problem.

I figured there must be some similar apps available for ubuntu and there definitely are, however they're not for simple editing like I'm attempting and more for the advanced user looking to do multi-track creating and editing. I've tried to find online tutorials and help via searching but am just getting a headache.

General :: Use Sed To Edit A File?

Sep 4, 2010

I need to change one word in over a thousand pages of HTML. I think sed is the only way to do this, but I've never used sed before.

After reading the documentation, I see that it is pretty easy to alter files to standard output, in other words, the screen.

But I don't want to do just alter text to the screen, I want to alter the original file, else I am not doing any Stream EDiting as near as I can tell.

None of the documentation explains how to take a file, apply sed to alter that file. How do you do this?

Code:
[myuser@myhost dir]#sed s/changethis/tothis/ /mydir/myfile

How do I apply sed to actually make the changes to myfile?
