Fedora :: Thunderbird Tray Notification For New Emails?

Oct 26, 2009

how to get this working? I mean have an icon in the tray alerting of new emails. I used to have it working using moztraybiff [URL] in Thunderbird 2, but since I installed F11 and thus started using Thunderbird 3 I haven't been able to get this working. (Evolution, on the other hand, has this and it works fine, but I'm having trouble, [URL], with using Google calendars in it. If I could get that working I would think about switching to Evolution).

Fedora Security :: Encrypting A Hard Drive In 12 ?

Dec 12, 2009

I'm installing fedora 12 on a laptop using the live cd, and I have a few questions about the encryption process.

First, I'd like to fill the drive with random data. I've read the fedora documentation and it suggests using the following command: dd if=/dev/urandom of=<device>. The installer didn't offer an opportunity to do this, so I opened a terminal and typed the command. I expected it to take hours on my 160 gig hard drive, but it only took about 3 minutes, and indicated about 600 megs of data had been written. Did I do it correctly? According to palimpsest, my boot partition is sda1 and the other partition is sda2, so that's the one ran the command with.

Second, I need some advice on what to encrypt. The installer shows me the following layout after I select encryption:

LVM Volume Groups

Hard Drives

I know I can't encrypt boot, but I can encrypt lv_root and lv_swap. But is it necessary to do that? And tell me the pros and cons of using a boot loader password?

Fedora Security :: Encrypting The Swap Partition While /dev/path Constantly Changes?

Aug 10, 2011

I would like to encrypt my swap partition ...During installation, I tried to select the "encrypt partition" choice, but it needed a passphrase.After installation, I tried to encrypt my partition ... I followed this article: The problem is that my swap partition always changes its path ...When I first booted the system, it was /dev/sda10, next it became /dev/sdc10, now it is /dev/sdb10. This is probably the reason why in fstab all entries are according to UUID.However, the swap partition is not fond of UUIDs ! I tried to mkswap /dev/<current swap partition> -L Swap, I received a UUID, puted it in /etc/crypttab ... it worked for the first time ... but the second time... did not.

Ubuntu :: How To Recover Emails In Thunderbird

Jan 1, 2010

By gross mistake I delated ALL my emails in my gmail account. I did this from thunderbird 3 so I deleted emails in the computer and the server. Fortunately my home folder still has the thunderbird 2 folder and and weighs 1.5 gigas with files callled inbox and sent mail weighting hundred of megas, so my emails ARE there.Problem is, when I open Thunderbird 2 the emails don't appear there. How can I get them back and into Google servers too?

Ubuntu :: Thunderbird Can't Delete The Emails

May 17, 2010

I have two emails in my Inbox marked as new. I cannot delete them, move them, or mark them as read. Attempting to delete them fails with the message


Unable to delete messages in folder Inbox because it is in use by some other operation. Please wait for that operation to finish and then try again. Other operations fail silently. No other operations are listed in the activity manager (which doesn't actually let you /manage/ activities... just view them). How can I force deletion of these emails? Where in the filesystem are they stored?

Programming :: Searching Thunderbird Emails & Extracting Information

Jun 8, 2010

I have a load of emails in my Thunderbird trash folder and some of them (all with a similar subject) I want to extract the email address for them and put in a text file. I have located the trash file but it seems that it is just a big flat file with a concatenation of all my emails in it, varying number of header lines etc etc - ie, something which really doesn't seem to suit awk, sed, grep etc.Does anyone know of any way this might be accomplished, or any third party tools which may help?

Ubuntu Security :: Encrypting My Server ?

Oct 29, 2010

I have an Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS server that I set up a while back and I am considering encrypting the whole box. I store everything on the server and if it were stolen from a home robbery it could be quite devastating. The server is using two 750 GB SATA hard drives formatted with LVM. Inside the LVM I have a small partition on the first drive for the OS, SWAP, and everything else on the first and second drive is /var/media which is where I store all the data. I have set up an encrypted LVM on my laptop but that was during the install using the automatic method.

I can't figure out how to do what I want to do and I don't want to risk destroying the data on the server. What I would like is to non-destructively encrypt the server (System, SWAP, and DATA partitions) similar to how TrueCrypt works on Windows and I'd like the encryption key to be stored on a USB thumb drive so when the server boots it requires a hardware key. (And have the encryption key backed up online in case the flash drive dies.) And I'd like to use AES 256.

Security :: Is It Worth Encrypting Hard Drive?

Oct 21, 2010

I encrypted my hard drive on my media PC but it's really annoying having to type in a password every time I turn it on. I chose a short password so it was quick and easy to type in but is it worth encrypting data with a weak password?If the computer is suspended, someone could come along and resume the computer. They would be presented with a locked GNOME session) but the data would be unencrypted; does this go against encrypting the hard drive? Or does the locked GNOME session provide enough security to keep an intruder out?

Ubuntu Security :: Encrypting Content With A Password Only - No Keys

Jun 1, 2010

What is the easiest way to encrypt plain text content with a password only? I need to encrypt client login information, but I hate dealing with all the unnecessary complexities of Linux's encryption systems.

I know I am going to get a bunch of people telling me how perfect Seahorse and whatever is, but Seahorse and the default /home directly encryption have both given me too many problems when decrypting my information. I prefer to preserve my data rather than using these methods.

Ubuntu Security :: Encrypting / Home Partition Without Reinstalling?

Jun 12, 2011

I have Kubuntu 11.04 64-bit installed (software upgrade from 10.10) and I have a separate /home partition. I want to encrypt my /home partition (and perhaps the swap partition as well) but I don't want to have to reinstall Kubuntu. (Mostly because it was a software upgrade and I don't have an 11.04 disc.) I found a tutorial for Encryptfs via one of the stickies that mentions post-install migration, but it says that using Encryptfs on a separate /home partition is more complicated than if it were part of the root partition and that the CDs don't have any software to preserve and configure existing encrypted /home partitions. (Granted this tutorial is made for 9.04, so things may have changed.)

Also, this tutorial makes it sound like if you have your /home directory encrypted that the encrypted data is stored in a folder on the root partition. Is it done the same way if the /home directory is on its own partition? Because I don't think my root partition is large enough to have all of my /home data. (I purposely kept it small because the root partition doesn't seem to get very large.)

Ubuntu Security :: Encrypting Swap Space Breaks Standby/lock Screen?

That said i just turned on ubuntu for 5 mins, had to go away for a bit, when i came back to unlock the screen my password was not being accepted, and another 5 mins later the screen said that my session had timed out-i had to do a cold reboot Does this mean i cant lock the screen anymore?

(Yeah, I know, shocking, isn't it?)So I quickly check what versions I have installed. Yup: Vulnerable.I check whether updates are available.These are pretty serious "remote code execution" vulnerabilities and the status is "vendor confirmed, updates available." So why isn't my 9.10 desktop's update manager telling me updates are available?

Ubuntu Security :: Add Security Exception In Thunderbird?

May 27, 2010

My company uses self signed certificates, and whenever i access the global address book, every time i start typing an address, TB throws up a security warning dialog. There is no way from that dialog to accept a security exception.

It's getting really tedious.

I tried editing the address book properties to turn off SSL. This makes the warning go away, but then, every time i start typing an address, TB asks me for my password. This dialog has a check to store the password, which i always check. Yet, TB keeps asking.

How do i make this stop?

Ubuntu Security :: Encrypting Home Folder After Having Installed Ubuntu?
