General :: Track Spend Time On Computer?

Sep 4, 2010

Possible Duplicate: time tracking application on linux Every Linux time-tracking application I've seen assumes you're tracking time for projects, perhaps to create invoices later for your clients. This is not what I'm looking for. Rather, I just want some insight into how I spend my time on my computer. I'd like to waste less time on my computer, and spend my time on more productive tasks. The first step to improving anything is to measure it. But I can't be bothered or remember to click on some icon and switch "projects" every time I change from my terminal to browsing ....., or something like that. I want the time I spend on different applications tracked automatically.

Ubuntu :: Way To Test 'health' Of Drive Before Spend Hours Rebuilding Filesystem?

Jan 17, 2010

I was unable to boot my computer because bad blocks in my drive 'appeared' over my current and most used partition, for 9.10. I discovered there were 101 bad blocks on the drive, so I called western digital and had them send me a new one. In the meantime, running fsck on the drive managed to sort out the bad blocks for the time being. The replacement drive arrived on Friday, and since then, I've been trying to clone my current drive to the replacement. Using Clonezilla, I kept getting the error "bad partition table on /dev/sdb". Alright, I tried a bit-by-bit transfer using dd, but for some reason, the transfer fails on the last partition, leaving the replacement drive unbootable. What do you think I should do? Does it sound likethet sent me another faulty drive, or am I just doing something stupid? I've copied my drive before, but ive never had these problems- i just popped in Clonezilla and away it went.

I'm really leary about this drive, I have many important files for school and TONS of music. The school files, I can back up, and the music could be shuffled to another external drive, but I reallydo no want to go through all of the time and effort to move it to a new drive that may already be failing. Does anyone know what I should do? Is there some way to test the 'health' of the drive before I spend hours rebuilding my filesystem?

General :: Hexdump Of First Track Of HDD?

Jun 29, 2011

How would i do a hexdump in Ubuntu for the first track of a HDD? I am looking for a winhex-esque output if that makes sense. The first track has 63 sectors, each 512 bytes long. I tried

dd if=/dev/sda bs=1 count=512 | hexdump -C

but that only gave me what appears to be the MBR, or first sector of the HDD.

General :: What Format Should Rip A CD Track In For A Windows User

Apr 4, 2010

I wanted to show a track from a CD to a friend who uses Windows. I tried to rip it in MP3 (LAME) format, because I couldn't remember whether Windows Media Player can read OGG or FLAC (whatever that is) format. Due to some kind of error (no explanation given other than "command failed"), my K3B would not rip in MP3. Which of the formats can Windows Media Player read? I know it can read WAV, but that's inconveniently large to send by e-mail or over an instant messenger.

Ubuntu :: Roaming Profiles - Login More Than One Computer At The Same Time?

Jul 7, 2010

I've been thinking about setting up roaming profiles so that I can access my profile and settings from any computer in the house that has ubuntu booting on it. One thing that concerns me is, what happens if I log in using my profile from more than one computer at the same time? A couple examples:

1. I'm working on something on one pc, and go downstairs. A little while later I fire up a laptop down there and want to browse the web. What would happen?

2. I am logged in to my desktop, but let it go to standby. I later log on to a different pc on the network and load the same profile that was logged in (but in standby). What happens to the state of the profile when the desktop wakes up again?

Ubuntu :: Each Time Start The Computer - Have To Check The Disk

May 19, 2011

When I start the computer I receive the message that the drive that contains the /home partition has an error. If I press "F" the screen says that the drive is no ready, that I can wait, cancel or manually recovery. If I wait, in about 1 minute, the system starts normally. If I press "M" to repair manually, then I press fsck to repair the disk and apparently repairs the disk. But everytime I start (power on) the computer, Ubuntu always checks the disk and gives a dialog where I can: press F to attempt to fix the errors, I to ignore, S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery
