General :: UNIX - Copy And Paste Between Different Bash Windows With Files Opend With VI?

Jun 15, 2011

Lets say I log in to bash, open a file in vi, then using alt-f2 I open a new terminal. After logging in I navigate to a second file and open that in vi. How can I CnP between these two files?

I found this from [URL]. I'm not familiar with this command shift-8-y-y. I follow the vimtutor and use virtual mode. I tried this sequence and was unsuccessful.

And, I read this about registers. I found a mention of using double_quote-p to 'put' or paste the register, but this does not work in a different file. The second file reported the register empty.

Alternatively, I read in the VIM docs, it is possible to open multiple files under split screens. This may be a course to a solution. The need I often encounter has me navigating in a different bash window to find a file, then wishing to copy between the two. Whereas, I imagine, a split VIM window useful for files in the same directory.

General :: Backing Up Windows 7 Programs?

Aug 24, 2010

I want to do a clean re-install of Windows 7 but there are files and installed programs which need to be backed up and restored. I tried using the Windows 7 backup utility to do a full backup to an external usb drive. The problem is that whenever the backup gets close to finishing, it always crashes. The system I am backing up has been compromised by viruses, which might be causing this. I already used several utilities to get rid of the viruses but some of the damage they did can not be undone. I tried doing the backup in safe mode but Windows 7 does not allow this. What other methods can I use to backup and restore important programs and files on Windows 7? Perhaps there is a way to do it from outside Windows 7, like say, using a Linux live cd? One of the main problems I see is restoring installed programs since those make use of the registry so simply copying the files probably won't work.

Networking :: Passwordless SFTP Between Unix Box And Windows?

Mar 29, 2010

I have to establish password SFTP between one Unix box and Windows in which certain files will be pushed from unix to windows server. Our client is insisting on using TurboFTP on Windows for ssh daemon to run. There are two components in TurboFTO- client and server.

1. I need help if I need to install both. As far as my knowledge with this software is considered, I dont think TurboFTP client to be running as the server componoent will itself run sshd.

2. Also, when I try to add server in TurboFTP server console, it provides me two options - local and remote server types. Local uses 3830 port by default and uses ip If I use Remote server type which uses 3839 and I dont know what ip address to provide. I need help whether I shud go ahead with local server or remote server.

My doubt is if I consider local server type then whether my Unix box will be able to recognize if thie windows machine (which is also naving network specific ip address) has sshd running because windows has local server type enabled which uses

Fedora Networking :: Mapping Windows Users On Unix Users

Sep 29, 2010

Samba up and running on my pc. pc runs FC12 with kde. A laptop has win vista. The pc can access the shares on the laptop but the laptop has authentication issues to access the pc. Note that windows doesnt enforce authentication forincoming network connections.Using the system-config-samba util i tried to map a windows user to the unix user "feduser". The laptop (named LAPPY) has a user (lapuser) which has on windows no password.What should I tell samba config what the windows username should be? lapuser or LAPPYlapuser doesnt work because when accessing the pc via the laptop, the authentication fails. The only auth that is successful is when choosing the same winusername as the unix username.

Secondary, id like to setup the laptop so that the user doesnt have to provide a name and password, or at least not more then once in the lifetime of the laptop. Note that you cant provide an empty password to system-config-samba. How is that possible?

Strange but not really on issue imho:the samba - KDE control module(kcmshall4) (and the smb.conf) shows 2 shares: the homedirs and the data dir the samba server configurator (system-config-samba) shows only the datadir.

Ubuntu Servers :: Mapping UNIX Groups To Windows Groups?

Oct 12, 2010

I am currently trying to set up a Samba domain server. In the Samba-HOWTO-Collection I found an
example file.(Point In the explanations of the example below, the author says I need to map UNIX Groups to NT Groups. He writes a shell-script of how one could do it, but when I copy it and then execute it, I get the error:

Bad option: rid=512
Bad option: rid=513
Bad option: rid=514

The other groups do get mapped, just the Domain Admins, Domain Users and Domain Guests dont. This is the shell from the HOWTO:

#### Shell-Skript f ̈r sp ̈tere Verwendung aufbewahren
net groupmap modify ntgroup="Domain Admins" unixgroup=ntadmins rid=512
net groupmap modify ntgroup="Domain Users" unixgroup=users rid=513
net groupmap modify ntgroup="Domain Guests" unixgroup=nobody rid=514

Programming :: Programs Run Faster Than Windows?

Jul 25, 2010

I know this may be just me being a little bias on OS's but... I quite honestly believe that "some" programs run faster on linux than on windows.

Open Office for example, It runs amazingly fast on my linux distro but runs horribly (laggy) on my Vista machine.

Firefox also appears to run faster on my linux machine than on my Vista machine.

There are several more examples but I could go on and on with this.

My point is, do programs run faster on linux than on windows? Or is it just me that is in denial?

I am not sure if comparing linux to Vista is a good comparison in terms of program speed or not...

Also it should be noted that the Vista machine "hardware" is "several" times faster than my linux machine's "hardware".

I am not trying to start a flame war or anything like that, I am just trying to make sure I haven't totally lost my mind.

Debian :: Programs Open With (Blacked Out) Windows?

Aug 10, 2015

Long story short, been using Debian for 2+ years. Recently did a Clean install of Jessie (which worked fine). I wanted to test out Ubuntu 14.04 so I distro hopped for a couple weeks. Now I'm back on Debian Jessie (did a clean install again).

Problem is: Everything works fine, but after the computer runs for a while (like 2+ hours) any new program windows that I open are completely blacked out. Just like opening a big square black tile. They are unusable until I restart the computer, then everything works fine again for another 2+ hours.

I've never had this problem before, not even with my previous clean installation of Jessie. This time I installed it in the same way that I did the last time.
