Debian Configuration :: Why /etc/fonts/local.conf Doesn't Take Effect

Dec 21, 2010

I have used /etc/fonts/local.conf to control how the fonts looks like in my laptop, which runs a Gentoo. In particular, I don't want anti-aliasing. I copied the file to my Debian desktop, but it seems the file doesn't take effect, even after reboot. Do I need to do something else to make it take effect?

Debian Configuration :: Exim Doesn't Deliver Local Mail; Files In /var/mail Empty?

Jan 28, 2010

I cannot get exim4 to actually deliver any "local delivery only; not on a network".But whatever I do in the config, all mail gets frozen with entries in the log file like:"root@empty R=nonlocal: Mailing to remote domains not supported"Maybe the problem is that there is no fqdn for the computer (and will never be). How can I enable local mail delivery?

Debian Configuration :: Achieve The Same Effect With CLI?

Jun 6, 2010

What GNOME does with pendrives does surprise me. It not only umounts the partitions, but also shuts the device down and turns off the power light. How do I achieve the same effect with CLI? I've tried eject but it does not cut power.

OpenSUSE :: 3.2 Fonts Get Loaded To /usr/local/share/fonts?

Feb 23, 2010

I have just installed openSUSE 11.2 X86_64 on my laptop, I then used KDE to install lots of type 1 fonts for my printer. These get loaded to /usr/local/share/fonts/...These installed fonts are visible to KDE (KWRITE) and GIMP so I assume that the installation was O.K. When I start openOFFICE writer I do not see these fonts. The font selection appears to be the fonts located under /usr/share/fonts. I have not tried other ooo3 components. I assume that they are not going to see the fonts either.

I have searched google and it appears that /usr/local/share/fonts is the correct location for non-packaged fonts. Has anybody any idea what is wrong? I think I could move all the fonts to /usr/share/fonts and ooo3 would work but this seems to break the installation directory structure. I have considered symlinks but I don't like the idea of defining a font twice to Linux and creating the syslinks is more work than reinstalling the fonts if they are lost

Debian Configuration :: Exim4 Configuration For Local Addresses

Jun 17, 2010

I am working on a Debian 2.6.26-19 Distribution with exim4 as MTA. After a system restart a problem occurred with delivering emails to local addresses. These local addresses use a 1and1 mailserver for email. The MX records for the local domain are set correctly but exim does not use a DNS lookup for these addresses because it identifies them as local addresses. I figured this out by executing the exim4 -d -bt command. The dns lookup part of the result looks like this (I replaced the actual address with placeholders):


The eventual result of the exim4 -d -bt command is: [user]@[domain.ext] is undeliverable: Unrouteable address How can I make sure, that exim4 makes a DNS lookup for the local addresses instead of skipping it? I know that I have to edit a exim4 configuration file, but I could not figure out which and how.

Debian Configuration :: How To Install Ttf Fonts In 8.0 With XFCE4

Jan 16, 2016

I have problem to install my fonts in my Debian. I used this guide but it not worked for me, i just could right click on the font and install it with font viewer.

Ubuntu Linux searches for fonts in specific locations as listed in the /etc/fonts/fonts.conf file.

A look at the contents of /etc/fonts/fonts.conf file indicates the following directories which are searched by Ubuntu Linux for fonts. They are :


So if you want to install new fonts in Ubuntu Linux or Debian for that matter, you can copy the fonts to any one of the 4 directories listed above.

The last directory ~/.fonts is a local hidden directory in every user’s Home folder. If you install the new fonts in this directory, the fonts will be available only for the person logged into that particular user account.

If you want your new fonts to be available system wide, to all users, then you should install them in any one of the first three directories listed above.

Once all your fonts are copied to the specific font directories, you have to make Ubuntu Linux aware of the new fonts so that it can make use of them. This is done by running the following command in the console :

$ sudo fc-cache -f -v


sepanta@dhcppc1:~$ sudo fc-cache -f -v

/usr/share/fonts: caching, new cache contents: 120 fonts, 6 dirs
/usr/share/fonts/X11: caching, new cache contents: 0 fonts, 6 dirs
/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi: caching, new cache contents: 358 fonts, 0 dirs
/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi: caching, new cache contents: 358 fonts, 0 dirs
/usr/share/fonts/X11/Type1: caching, new cache contents: 8 fonts, 0 dirs

[Code] ...

Red are my fonts in two different folder.

Debian Configuration :: Changing Fonts In GRUB2?

Aug 12, 2010

After removing a hard drive I (thought I)wasn't using, GRUB failed to load(turns out stage1 was on that drive) and it refused to install to a new drive(even after I kexec'd into the system - which was fun, considering the LiveCD used a different name for the hard drive). I finally threw in the towel and installed GRUB2, which worked after removing a second, incorrect root=. However, I can't find out how to switch the font from the fugly default to something that doesn't try to gauge my eyes out with a rusty spoon.

Debian Configuration :: Fonts Are Present But Cannot Be Displayed

May 12, 2011

I originally installed Debian and configured it the way I want it without any problems. It was working perfectly and I was happy. I then tried openSuse. I did not like it and re-installed Debian five hours later. Now I have a strange problem. This is the third re-install. With the first two, after installing a few fonts the system says the fonts are present, but they cannot be displayed. I only get empty rectangles. The fonts are not available in office and there is no text at all on the internet. Only photographs and a few icons. This forum for example, only has lines separating the posts.

I do not know why there is a problem, because I am configuring the system the same as the first time; install scim and add a few fonts. The founts are not in packages, but I need them for some of the work I do in office. Since Debian uses this strange permissions system where the user is not considered the owner of his or her computer, I use gksu nautilus. I makes no difference if I leave the permissions of the fount folder as root or change it to me. I am completely at a loss. As I mentioned, I am doing the same thing I did the first time, so there should not be any problems.

Debian Configuration :: 32 Bit Apps On Wine Cannot See System Fonts

Oct 23, 2015

I've just installed Debian 8.2 KDE 64bit, installed wine, and found that a 32-bit Windows program (Agent newsreader) could not see the linux system fonts. (This worked fine on Kubuntu 14.04)

Since this is the first time that I've installed Debian, I'm not sure if I'm missing something obvious or if this is an actual bug.

Steps to reproduce:
Fresh install of Debian 8.2 KDE 64bit.
apt-get install wine
wine wordpad # this is a small word-processor for wine that is supplied with wine
menu -> format -> font
all linux fonts are visible -- so far so good

Because I want to use a 32bit program, I now have to do this, I understand:
dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
apt-get install wine-bin:i386

But after that,if I run "wine wordpad" and look at the fonts, all the linux system fonts are gone. The only fonts visible are the nine that are built into wine (Courier, Fixedsys, Marlett etc..) So installing the i386 wine support seems to have broken something.

Debian Configuration :: Xtide Tide Predictor Fonts?

Jul 14, 2010

I recently moved to the east coast, and thought to myself : "Self, you need a tool to get tide charts.Happily I found the Xtide app in the repo, seems to work great.However there is no menu bar with things like "preferences", and this app isn't following the rules I've set in System>>Preferences>>Appearance>>Fonts.There is a file /etc/xtide.conf which contains single line "/usr/share/xtide".Can I add something to this file to get fonts large enough for my old man eyes?I don't see any sort of .xtide file in /home , would I need to create something like that?Also the Xtide page mentions the Xtide control panel,but I don't see any way to access that in the open app window???

There is mention of the ~/.xtide.xml (control panel)Which I apparently get with the installation.Can I just create that file and copy the example on that page? Would I have to also add an entry somewhere else to point xtide to that file?I don't know anything about the "config.hh, in your X resources database" mentioned below in an excerpt from their page. XTide is customized by changing its settings. The most convenient way to do this is generally through the control panel that is documented in a previous section. However, you can also change these settings in config.hh, in your X resources database, or on the command line. The order of precedence, from least significant to most significant, is: 1. config.hh 2. Xdefaults (X resources) 3. ~/.xtide.xml (control panel) 4. command lineUpon reading the tide manpage, I see mention of setting evironment variables in the /etc/xtide.conf mentioned above, but I don't know how to construct these variables. The manpage mentions setting my prefered location with

Networking :: Timeout Options In Resolv.conf Have No Effect

Jul 10, 2011

Im running several linux boxes, all redat enterprise linux. Versions vary between 4 and 5.

Since we have problems with our DNS servers, Im trying to lower the DNS resolve timeout to the minimum to avoid system hangs etc.

However, it seems that nothing I do have any effect. when Im running time nslookup or time host while my first DNS server is down, it always takes about 1.09sec as opposed to 0.09sec when the first server in the list is available. I tried playing with options timeout:X attemps:X but it simply doesnt seem to do anything, even if I set it to high values. Some internet posts suggested having timeout:0.5 or less, but that also doesnt seem to do anything.

when I use:
options timeout:0.3 attempts:1
- doesn't do anything.
options timeout:1 attempts:1
- doesn't do anything.
options timeout:10 attempts:3
- doesn't do anything.

It doesn't work when I put it in the first line of the file. It doesn't work when I put it in the last line of the file.

It doesn't work if I put it in "export RES_OPTIONS=options timeout:X attempts:Y"
I tried it on 2 different machines.

Debian Configuration :: Can't Get DNS Client To Use What's In Resolv.conf

Jun 18, 2010

My Debian workstation is on a predominantly Windows network. It is resolving internet addresses (i.e., etc) just fine. However it's not resolving any of the address of machines on the local network and the windows machines do not resolve the linux machines address either. All machines (linux and windows) can access each other just fine via direct IP reference.

My /etc/resolv.conf file has the following IP addresses listed: is a netgear VPN/router that is the primary router for the LAN and maintains a VPN to a remote office is the IP address of the Windows Primary Domain control on which the DNS server is running. That server is at the remote office. The system acts like it is completely ignoring anything I put in the resolv.conf file. From the linux X server I'm using "Network Setting" utility to make changes to the network configuration. This appears to work fine for things like switch between DHCP and static IP.

Debian Configuration :: DDC Versus Xorg.conf

Jan 18, 2011

I'm trying to get the latest Lenny running on some old hardware (a Winterm 3150se). Everything is working just fine except for two things.

When Gnome starts, it comes up at 1600x1200 resolution, which is too high for my monitor. It shows a portion of the right side of the display, If I select Screen Resolution, it gives me a few standard choices, but if I pick one, it acts like it's trying to honor my request, then comes back as 1600x1200 again.

My xorg.conf file had no references to Modeline, so I added a 1024x768 Modeline, not really understanding where the selection I was given was coming from. Anyway, it didn't help.

I can see in the log file that right after the entry about using xorg.conf, it says 'Module "ddc" already built-in', which must have something to do with it?

My hardware supports all the usual video formats, at least it does when it's running WinCE. Is there a way to force the use of xorg.conf or can someone tell me why DDC is acting like it's "read only"? Is DDC a file somewhere?

My other problem is that the Winterm refuses to not try to boot from the flash memory thumbdrive even though it's formatted as a non-bootable device - it's my SSDisk. I have to boot without the drive in, then slip in in just as the boot process exits the blue start screen. I can live with this problem, since it might be dumb hardware.

Debian Configuration :: Xorg.conf Not Used In Kernel 2.6.38?

Apr 12, 2011

I just system-upgraded (testing) to kernel 2.6.38. All seems ok, except that a few things I added to xorg.conf in the past (basically, keyboard language switch) have no effect anymore. My xorg.conf is still there, it is still the same as before, but the changes I did in XkbdLayout section have no effect. It seems xorg.conf is not used anymore. I assume new version of xorg uses a different configuration file, but I'm not sure.

Debian Configuration :: Public Network Overwrites /etc/resolv.conf

Dec 10, 2010

My ethernet controller is configured as such:

My /etc/resolv.conf file is normally just set up to use Google's public DNS:

When I connect to the network at the university library, it totally overwrites my /etc/resolv.conf file to something like:

This is pretty annoying, so I tried comprimising by making a file with the school's domain and search entries plus the Google nameservers, then revoking write permission on the file. However, I couldn't access any domain name with this config on their network, so I reverted to using their nameservers. I keep all the school's entries commented out when I connect to my home network.

My ultimate question is what is actually overwriting the file? I suspect that my connecting through DHCP is responsible. Whatever it is, I'm pretty annoyed that no back up file was created.

OpenSUSE Install :: Commands In Boot.local Have No Effect

Jan 29, 2010

I want to turn off CPU throttling, and I notice how each time opensuse boots up, it imposes it.

I would like to know where it does this. I suspect - but actually I don't really know - if it's the HAL daemon that does this. Could be.

In any case, rather than have to key it in each time, I put the relevant commands (cpufreq-set) in boot.local. No effect.

I suspect boot.local might not be the best place for such a heavy duty command like this one.

Are there any there places I could put it so that it executes automatically?

Debian Configuration :: Multipath Configuration On 5.0 64 Bit - Doesn't Create The Relative Devices

Debian Configuration :: Running A Local Ftp Server?

Nov 2, 2010

What would be necessary to run an ftp server (or a web server) on my local PC so that other people I know could access it and download stuff from it? The idea is to share photos, videos etc with friends/family where the files are a bit too big for email. (All 100% legal, own-content, no copyright issues, needless to say). Security isn't that vital, I'd just put files in the ftp directory, email the link and let them download the files, then remove them again. No passwords are required, and no uploads.

Obviously there's the problem that both computers have to be on at the same time, and I assume I'd have to change my computer's firewall settings and my router's settings to allow the traffic through, but my question is more basic than that - is it even possible? My internet connection is through a router, and as I understand it, my router has the IP address, not my computer. So I can connect through my router using my computer's IP address, but only my router knows my computer's IP address, and all the rest of the internet just sees my router and its IP address. Which means (I think) that I can't just send my IP address for my family to connect to, because that only gets them as far as my router, and the router would have no idea what to do with such requests. Am I right so far?

So is there any way for my family's computers to contact an FTP server or a web server running on my computer? Or does it require some kind of intermediary server to act as a traffic-forwarder? Is there such a thing? I'm assuming that setting up little private torrents would be fiddly and inefficient. Or would it be better/simpler to use one of the free filesharing services and put up with the (sometimes not too family-friendly) adverts associated with them?
