OpenSUSE :: Swapping Between Primary And Secondary Language?

Aug 15, 2011

How do you swap between primary and secondary languages for the keyboard (using GUI not terminal codes since this is for someone else who is a beginner at computing)? I installed the secondary language in the "language" section of yast, but can't see any options for swapping on the fly. Lets say they do 99% of stuff in english, but get an email they want to respond to in the secondary language or want to write a text document using the secondary language, is there a way to switch back and forth on the fly?

Ubuntu :: Vino Won't Start After Adding Secondary X / Fix It?

Dec 3, 2010

I have recently added a second screen and uses separate X screens as my x screen settings. No xinerama. After adding the display Vino refuses to start. IIRC using dual X screens with xinerama works as expected.

Starting it manually results in code...

Is it even possible to use vino with two server-side x screens? I would be perfectly happy with only one X screen exposed via VNC if it is impossible in the VNC client to choose which X screen to connect to.

General :: Adding User To A Secondary Group?

Sep 10, 2009

If user1's main group is genetics and one wants to add him/her to group biochem and to assign biochem as his/her secondary group will the following suffice ?


$ sudo usermod -G biochem user1

I would like for user1 to have genetics as the main group but also belong to biochem. When user1 creates a file, as he/she belongs to main group genetics, I assume the file will be owned by user1 and group owner will be genetics. Ideally files created by user1 should be accessible to users in group genetics(when permissions are tweaked) but not by individuals in group biochem. However, any files with group owner biochem should be accessible to user1 as he/she does belong to biochem as a secondary group. Would having user1 main group genetics, secondary group biochem fulfil this criteria ?

Server :: LVM Process - Adding Secondary HD As Logical Volume

Aug 3, 2009

I have a CentOS 5 server with a 250gb hard drive running close to the maximum space on one of the partitions. 87% of 200gb (/home), roughly. I have a second 250gb hard drive which is completely unused. I just recently did some searching through the forums here and found out about LVM and wanted to implement it. Although the downside is I believe it has to wipe a drive/partition before it can add it as a logical volume.

The process I'm considering following is:
1. add this empty 250gb (SDB) secondary hard drive as a logical volume on LVM and copy everything over from the currently filling up partition on my main hard drive.
2. have LVM add in the old partition on the primary hard drive (SDA)
3. extend my logical volume out to include the old partition. Extending my total hard drive space out to 450gb.

Hardware :: Debian USB Install Fails To Boot After Adding HD

Mar 10, 2010

I've just installed debian to a thumb drive on a system with no hard drives. I did not install any hard drive to avoid confusion. The installation went well, I rebooted the system several times with no issues until I decided to install the hard drive (SATA drive). After I installed the hard drive the system failed to boot showing something like:

Decompressing Linux... Parsing ELF... done.
Booting the kernel.
Loading, please wait...
mount: mounting /dev/sda1 on /root failed: No such device
(continues for other partitions and mount points)
Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init
No init found. Try passing init=bootarg

BusyBox v1.10.2 (Debian 1:1.10.2-2) built-in shell (ash)
/bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
(initramfs) [9.670347] sd 0:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through [9.673805] sd 0:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
(some insignificant text was not copied :P)

I am guessing that the new disk is somehow confusing debian regarding where to look for system files or the address where the devices are located because if I remove the data cable from the hard drive the system reboots correctly (no hard drive though). Hotpluging the drive works but once I reboot it happens again.

Debian Installation :: Adding Downloaded Deb Files To Cache?

Jun 6, 2010

I have a download cap therefore when I install Debian, I like to have a backup of all downloaded .deb files that I can install from rather than download all over again. From what I've read, it should be a simple case of copying the .deb files to /var/cache/apt/archives and then install using apt-get. But apt-get seems to 'ignore' them. Am I supposed to do something to get apt to use them? Bearing in mind, I need to do this from a console as there will be no DE.

Debian Configuration :: Adding New Kernels To Current Installation

I am currently running a Debian 4.0 (etch) PC and I can't upgrade to a newer distribution for legacy software reasons.

It is currently running on Kernel 2.6.18-4-686 and I would like to upgrade it to Kernel 2.6.22-3-686 (whilst keeping my current Debian 4.0 Etch installation). Does anyone know how this could be possible?

Prefereably I would like to instal Kernel 2.6.22-3-686 along side my current Kernel 2.6.18-4-686 with the option to specify which kernel to use when booting.

Fedora Installation :: FC11 - New Install No Sound After Adding Non-free Pkgs For Mp3

Jun 15, 2009

New install from downloaded DVD. sound played after install. Installed rhymbox, which tried to install the various nonfree packages. I didn't have the keys installed so it failed miserably. From various websites I've used yum to install nonfree packages to support mp3. I now have both movieplayer and rhymbox which have no sound. Even more strangely, rhymbox 'slider' which follows the playtime remaining, simply doesn't move? Tried remove/re-install rhymbox to no avail.

Ubuntu :: Install /home On Secondary Ext3 Drive

Sep 4, 2010

I'm running lucid.

I want to unmount the current /home from sda7 and mount it to sdb1

I had a look at system -> drives management but just was able to mount the secondary drive sdb1 as "DataDrive"

I had a look at /etc/fstab. This doesn't show the recently mounted sda7 "DataDrive"

So now I'm somewhat lost on how to achieve the goal

>> What ist the correct way to do it?

Scenario 1. Copy all contents of /home to the new drive and then switch the /home mount point

Scenario 2. Switch the mount point of /home from sda7 to sdb1 and cp the contents afterwards

>> How do I unmount /home from sda7 and mount it back to the sdb1 (ext3) when lucid doesn't use fstab (does it?) and I don't know where the drives manager stores it's information.

(Just had the idea that I need to use a live cd for not to lock the system drives (sdaN) )

For sure there is a man page or a how to somewhere i didn't just find >> A link to such information might be sufficient

Ubuntu :: Support For Language While Keeping English As Language Used To Display Desktop?

Mar 5, 2011

I have some music in another language, but when I open the songs in Banshee, their song names just come up as weird characters (like μ).I went to [System --> Administration --> Language Support] and installed support for that language, but the songs still come up like μ. (But in Nautilus, their proper names show).

I know the solution is to change my whole system language to that language, but I don't want to do that, as I am not very fluent in it. Is there any way to enable support for that language while keeping English as the language used to display my desktop?

Ubuntu :: Language Support - Each User Can Select Their System Language When Login?

One computer .... three users .... three languages. How do you make that happen? User A speaks English and is happy with English. No problem. User B needs to use Chinese and would like the full system in Chinese. User C needs to use Thai and Chinese. They would prefer their menus to be in Thai and can use iBus for Chinese entry. How do you set up the system so that each user can select their system language when they login?

Debian Hardware :: Getting A WD10EARS 4k-sector Disk To Work Properly As A Secondary Under Etch?

Is there any hope of getting a WD10EARS 4k-sector disk to work properly as a secondary under Etch? Just wondered if anyone had a fix before I RMA and return it as "Not suitable for purpose" WD say it should be OK with linux. But it ain't. It gives very poor perfromance, with a lot of hesitation. The issue is apparently one of sector boundaries, but the exact details are extremely complex.

Ubuntu Installation :: Moving HD From Secondary To Primary?

Jan 18, 2010

Currently I am running Ubuntu 9.10 on an older P4 system with EIDE harddrives. My primary HD has a WinXP installation and GRUB. Ubuntu is installed on the secondary HD.

I am happy enough running Ubuntu that I would like to remove my WinXP disk, move the disk with Ubuntu on it to be the primary boot drive, and then install a new drive as the secondary.

However when I tried to simply move the drive with Ubuntu on it from the secondary to the primary EIDE position the system would not boot. I assume that this is because there is no boot loader currently on that drive.

how do I put GRUB on the Ubuntu drive so that it can become the boot drive? Or is there some other way to accomplish what I am after without having to reinstall Ubuntu?

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Language Standardized In Wrong Language

The correct one I need is USA (and don't know exactly the difference between USA and USA alternative international). But every time I boot my laptop I get the old language back (Dutch) while USA is above the others in my preferences.

(i am french and wanted a light netbook with french keyboard)i am totally new to linux and i believe that msi wind is not helping.because i am more used to english for settings, i set the main language to english, but it seems that it automatically reconfigures my keyboard mapping to english as well, so that azerty becomes qwerty.i reset it back to french, so now my keyboard is french, but so is the there a way to differentiate keyboard from main user setting language?
