OpenSUSE :: Sharing Of Chromium Settings / Share The Browsers And Email Settings?

Sep 28, 2010

I have a triboot windows suse 11.3 stable and suse 11.3 factory pc, I would like to share the browsers and email settings between the suse stable and factory, I succeed with thunderbird and firefox moving the /home/.thunderbird and /home/.mozilla in an ext3 shared partition and linking these in the respecive /homes, I found that there isn't a /home/.chromium folder, I found probably /usr/lib64/chromium could be the same as /home/.mozilla for firefox, but I don't know if is secure or can damage my system to move this in a ext3 partition and then link this to the respective /usr/lib64/chromium, /usr/lib64/chromium has root owner, root group, visible and modifiable for root and only visible for group and other.

OpenSUSE Network :: Configure Proxy Settings For Browsers?

Aug 28, 2010

If I configure my OpenSuSE 11.2 system to use a proxy server in the YaST Proxy module, do I still need to configure my browser (i.e Firefox) to use these proxy settings, or is it done automatically under the covers?

OpenSUSE Install :: Saving System Settings (yast Settings)

Apr 1, 2011

Is there a way I can save system settings and have yast revert to a config file in case I ever need to reinstall the system again? I hate having to configure the firewall, runlevels, samba shares, samba workgroup, apparmor, and all the other junk after every install. It's not like I install often, but should suse 11.5 or 12 roll out, I'd like it to be a snappy upgrade.

Ubuntu :: Chromium - File Contains User Settings?

Nov 10, 2010

I have the Ubuntu font set in Chromium via the tools>>preferences>>personal stuff settings and I decided to change it to something else. However, even after hitting restore defaults and manually selecting new fonts, the font remains the Ubuntu font. I even went into System>>Preferences>>Appearance and changed the fonts there to something else just to see if it helped, but no luck.

I then did a purge via terminal with apt-get of Chromium, then reinstalled. Same result.

So where is the user file that contains these settings so I can delete it and have the program create a new file with default settings? Or is there an easier way to achieve the same result (default)?

Edit: on this machine I am on 10.04

Fedora Networking :: 10 Wired Con. Sharing / Cant Enable Eth1 To Test Settings?

May 24, 2009

I have Fedora 10 with 2 nic's and have used the firewall tool, network manager, etc.,then disabled the firewall front end and wrote my own iptables rules but can not even enable eth1 to use it. Tried 2 different common cards (like a network everywhere 10/100) Service network restart says eth1 not there.

Right now Ive:

eth0 connects direct to internet via my cable ISP.eth1 I've set as 192.168.1.1, netmask 255.255.255.0, gateway I wasn't sure but I set as my IP on eth0 isp supplied. DNS wasn't sure, just left blank.

But I can't even enable eth1 to test those settings.

then with gui firewall crap disabled I wrote my own iptables ruleset: (kernel flagged for ip forwarding)
with all chain policies set to allow.

Code:
iptables -A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -j DROP
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING --out-interface eth0 -j MASQUERADE
iptables -A FORWARD --in-interface eth1 -j ACCEPT
And on the slackware box (ethernet switched btw) I set up static IP 192.168.1.100 w/ eth1 on fedora
as gateway.

But like I said, fedora refuses to enable eth1. Been reading and googling last night and all morn.

(p.s. gnome, but all the tools are confusing the crap outta me, They seem to work against each other. I'm used to just bash.)

General :: Fedora 13 - Cannot Get Any Of The Resolutions Settings To Look Right On Separate X Screen With The Nvidia X Server Settings Gui

Ubuntu :: Change File Permission Settings To Force All Documents To Inherit Parent Document Settings?

Aug 21, 2011

i have a computer with 3 users on it, and a folder using samba that everyone on the network has access to. Lets say that, the folder is stored in /etc/sharedfolder. What happens is, when user1 puts a folder in it, then logs off, user 2 attempts to modify it and fails, because permission is set to 755, and they are not in the same group. (even if they were, it should still need to be 775) Anyway, my current solution is, every 5 minutes a crontab changes permission like so: chmod 777 -R /etc/sharedfiles && chown useradmin:superadmin -R /etc/sharedfiles Which works, but seeing as there is getting close to a gig in there, this is a bad solution, as it eats up the computers resources. Solutions that i think might work:

1) create a script that only changes permissions that need be changed.
2) change file permission settings to force all documents to inherit parent document settings

Hardware :: Gpointing-device-settings Settings Will Not Stay After Reboot?

Oct 18, 2009

I am running a debian squeeze machine on a ibm t40 laptop with window maker as my window manager. I am using gpointing-device-settings as a program to get the scroll bar on my touch pad working. unfortunately, I can't get the settings to stick after i shutdown and turn on. I have to go into the program and unclick then reclick the button. i'm using version 1.3.2 (ive tried both deb and source versions). does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? and if there is any configure files that I could configure instead of having to use the gui program.

Software :: Email Settings: Which Config File Identifies The Smtp Server

Dec 9, 2010

I have a recent install of Fedora14, and wanted to have outbound email sent to a smtp server elsewhere on the local network. I found the System->Preferences->Email Settings app and created a mail account with an smtp server. Now I am able to use mailx, mutt, and sendmail -- all send email correctly to the external server.

But I don't like being reliant on the GUI apps and wanted to know how this was done -- what system config files were affected. Assuming that my "smtp.xxx.com" server should show up somewhere, I grepped /home, /etc, and /var, but can't find it anywhere. On a whim I went into Evolution, deleted the mail account, and rebooted, but email STILL works. Where is this configured?

General :: Obtaining Windows Printer Share SMB Settings (for Tsclient/rdesktop)?

Aug 22, 2011

I have access to a "virtual" Windows server terminal, which I can access through my Ubuntu Linux via tsclient or rdesktop. Additionally, there are printer shares on this network, which can be accessed from any Windows PC on the network (including the "virtual" terminals); lets say the address is [URL]. Now, I open \printshares.company.com in the "virtual" terminal in rdesktop (avoiding tsclient since it has a Bug #94743 in tsclient (Ubuntu): Terminal Server Client isn't able to copy to/from clipboard) - and I can see all printers fine.. However, when I'm on my Linux machine directly on the work network, I try and do something like:

$ ping printshares.company.com
PING printshares.company.com (192.168.0.200) 56(84) bytes of data.
^C64 bytes from 192.168.0.200: icmp_req=1 ttl=124 time=10.4 ms

[code].....

Is it possible to retrieve the - let's call them "connection settings" - from the Windows terminal session, so I could replicate them under Linux when running smbclient? the IT department running these Windows servers is quite irritated by people using Linux; and will offer no support to those kinds of "customers". Furthermore, if obtaining those settings requires some installation on the client session, since I don't have permissions to install anything on the Windows terminal session.

Ubuntu :: Advanced User Settings / 'Connect To Ethernet And Wireless' Option Of The Advanced Settings?

Aug 12, 2010

I'm trying to create a user account for my children in Ubuntu 10.04

When creating their account, I have turned off the 'Connect to ethernet and wireless' option of the Advanced Settings.

However, when I log into their accounts, they still have full access to the internet through both the wireless and ethernet connections. Is this option for some other purpose?

Is there an alternate way to limit internet access for childrens' accounts in Ubuntu? (I'm used to MS Family Safety as a filter for internet access - is there an eqivalent for Ubuntu?)

OpenSUSE :: Porting KDE Settings To New PC?

Mar 23, 2010

I've got two laptops (a Dell and an Acer), one for work, the other for home. Both run openSUSE 11.1 64-bit and use KDE 4.4.

Is it possible to copy the settings on one machine to the other? The desktops are pretty similar, but not quite the same - and I can't remember what I did to the one I prefer to get it that way.

Obviously, the underlying hardware is different, but I am hoping that the OS takes care of that.

OpenSUSE :: Set Default Settings For New Users?

Apr 14, 2011

I have about 5 users for our desktop computer, 1 adult, 3 kids and me (I don't count as an adult ).

There are some settings I want to have each of the environments default to, where they can then change them as they wish on their own.

Instead of setting them one-at-a-time, is there a way to modify the settings on the template of what goes into a user's /home directory when they are created?

Examples:
Set it so when I add a person to the system theirdefault browser is set to Firefox starting home page is to our local server Open/Libre Office defaults to MS Office formats And others, less important ones like their pictures are placed in a centralized directory, not their own ~/Pictures.

After this initial setting, they are able to change any and all of these settings on their own, but to have these as default helps me set up their environments to get them started.

OpenSUSE Install :: Migrate KDE 11.2 Settings To 11.3?

Jul 16, 2010

I installed 11.3 as a "fresh" install (not upgrade) into a second partition, so now I have both my current 11.2 and the new 11.3 as a dual boot.

I'd like to migrate my old KDE (4.4.3) settings to the new 11.3 (KDE 4.4.4) installation, most importantly KMail and its archived mail folders. My plan was to copy the kmailrc file from the ~/.kde4/share/config/ folder and overwrite the default kmailrc that's on 11.3 and then replace the ENTIRE ~/.kde4/share/apps/kmail/mail/ folder on 11.3 with the one on 11.2 (including the hidden files and folders).

My questions are:

1. would this work, or am I missing other files and folders.

2. Would I be better off just copying the entire ~/.kde4 folder from 11.2 partition to 11.3?

OpenSUSE Install :: Getting 11.4 MS4 With All Brand New Settings?

Dec 4, 2010

Not sure if this is correct place to ask this but here go:I have the following setup today:

sda openSUSE 11.2
sdb openSUSE 11.4 ms3
sdc openSUSE 11.3 (production)

sdb is my test environment. sda is still around since its the only way I can power down my system. 11.3 and 11.4 hang on power down. (Another subject) I have the 11.4 ms4 dvd made and I want to install to sdb without carrying over any of the settings. In the past I've just formatted and installed but the settings for the user and root were saved. Want to do a total fresh install. Reason for not carrying over setting is problems with Akonadi not starting (tried all the trouble shooting tips), and Vbox freezing keyboard and mouse when installing XP.

OpenSUSE :: How To Change Font Settings For Other Languages

Jul 17, 2010

I just installed openSUSE 11.3 (Gnome). I am using Korean language, but I don't want to make Korean language as my default language. So I installed Korean lang as secondary language. It works well.But the problem is Korean font. Actually BEFORE installing the language, the font look much nicer. But as soon as I installed the language, the font became ugly.Even if I uninstal the language, the font still remains the same (ugly).
Where is the font setting for other languages stored? It would be nice if I can set default fonts for Korean language manually.
