I am not sure does the title make sense with regards to my query.I am using OS 11.4 gnome.I installed a program (PLINK v1.07) by compiling its source.i compiled the source code in the following folder using "make"
Which created an executable file plink.
I have recently converted to Linux after taking a system architecture course which exposed me to OpenSuse. I have my main desktop up and running with OpenSuse and now I'm determined to dust off my old pc's at home and get them up and running again. I might need some guidance or tips along the way so thats why I'm here.I have four old pc's running on Windows Home XP with 512mb or less of ram. I am planning on upgrading them to at least 1 or 2gb of ram to get as much as I can out of OpenSuse. Should I install the ram before I before or after switching them all to OpenSuse? What network adapter do you guys recommend?
I came across a few articles but nothing really seemed to help me. Here's the problem; anytime I try to open a PDF file from my browser, I get either the "Open With..." option or the "Save to..." option.
If I select "Open With..." the default has been changed to Virus Scanner (ClamTK) which I recently installed. Admittedly, I was fooling around with virus scanners to see how they work in Ubuntu. But now my Document Viewer won't open up the PDF files. If I select "Save to..." and save the PDF file(s) to my desktop, and double-click the PDF file from my desktop, then Document Viewer will open up the file. What is the program path for me to change the default program back to Document Viewer???
does anyone else have this error?im on an Alienware m9750in order for me to install ubuntu, i had to change the boot options with thenouvea.modeset=0and i was able to boot to ubuntu 11.04 and then install it from there, and i installed my correct drivers for the video
I have downloaded the jdk-6u20-linux-i586.bin from their website. I also read the instruction given to install jdk manually but i was not able to run a single program. Can someone give a step by step instruction to install jdk and also tell me how to set the path so i can easily execute the programs.
Atleast I think it's a terminal program. I remember several years ago while using Redhat 7 when working in the terminal it would automatically complete the pathnames and filenames for you. If I was typing in the terminal "cd downloads" but I only typed "cd do" it would automatically complete my command with "cd documents" but if I continued to type "cd dow" it would know that I don't mean the documents folder and it would know the only other folder path with a dow in it is downloads. I'm not sure if my description is 100% accurate but I think you get the idea. Ubuntu doesn't seem to have this by default and I'm curious if I can get it. Is it a terminal program/client I need to use, or just an option? I don't know what it's called so I've had a hard time googling for it!
I installed a new program called the "Android Notifier Desktop 0.2.1" and within the program it say to use the systems startup manager to start the program with every system boot.I have no idea where to begin looking for the programs file and main start up link.
A program requires local path property to perform correctly.I'm seeking shortcut command to execute a program with a supplied localPath For example, cd /usr/local/blogrmis/usr/local/blogrmis/remote & remote program requires local path @ /usr/local/blogrmis to run.is there any shortcut which i can do it in 1 line?
I'm taking here about tins of directories, thousands of files. I'm looking to find a command that makes me able to move the results above to another path, and to create that path once it doesn't exist like below:
Java applet not loading image with relative path(e.g. images/1.jpg) but loads image with absolute path(i.e. from /root/user/images/1.jpg) . This is a problem when i want to host the applet on web server
I have a program that takes a relative path as input appends it to a some path string to get the actual path.
Now all I can input is the relative path. So if I want to go one level above my input will be ../mypath.
If I know the depth of the path used internally, I can use .. as many times to go to the root directory and then give the absolute path. But suppose I do not know the depth of the directory, can I construct a relative path string such that it considers it as a relative path. One way could be to have enough .. in the path string so that I can force an absolute path for some maximum depth of path.
Is there some path string syntax that I am not aware of but can achieve this?
how to add a path to PATH variable permanently so that it remains persisent even after closing shell and rebooting the system when i added a path, to variable it remained there as long as i didn't closed the shell. but when i reopened it ,changed were undone.
prefix=user@my-server: find . -depth -type d -name .git -printf '%h�' | while read -d "" path ; do ( cd "$path" || exit $?
How shall i go about changing the absolute path to relative path, so that /home/git/mirror/android/adb/ndk.git gets converted to /mirror/android/adb/ndk.git //echo <command> "$prefix$PWD.git" ?? - anything for relative path?
I upgraded my OpenSUSE 11.2 KDE 4.3.5.x to KDE 4.4.2 and am having a couple of issues. Not sure if I am just a bit stupid or impatient figuring them out or what... In Amarok, I used to be able to input or edit the path name under Files (i.e. Browse Local Harddrive for Content). This allowed me to quickly copy and paste a location from Dolphin / Konqueror etc. into and from Amarok for quick access across multiple applications (Especially when sorting out things). Somehow this is either missing (Not possible anymore) or I am to impatient or stupid figuring this out.
I use tcsh. When I execute by hand a command that is in my path...located in say "~/bin/myscript"....the command executes without an issue. I don't need to use the absolute path "~/bin/myscript", I can simply type the command "myscript" since the path "~/bin" is in my .tcshrc file. When I execute the same command from a script, I get a "command not found" error. A similar issue is when I use the absolute command, but a library necessary the programs' execution is defined within my .tcshrc file. I'll get a library not found error.
