Slackware :: Finding The Location Of Default Console Keymap?

Mar 20, 2010

I avoid capslock like the plague and use "ctrl:nocaps" when in X, and would like to have the same behaviour in the console. Back when I was using Debian I got it set up the way I want, but now I can't seem to locate the default keymap. I tried editing



and it works when I use loadkeys manually, but not on boot.

Slackware :: Reset Default Keymap Then Switch Ctrl>>Capslock Not Working?

Jan 8, 2011

I'm running through an Emacs tutorial and I was trying to figure out how to exchange CTRL and CAPSLOCK.

1. From the Emacs Wiki, i saw


As super-user:

$ loadkeys emacs
$ echo "loadkeys emacs" >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local

so, maybe stupidly I tried this. Which seems to have changed nothing.

so then I try


loadkeys -d

to try and get back to the default. Which doesn't seem to work. so then thinking i should reset everything, try to go in /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty and do



Finally, I go into /etc/X11 and edit xorg.conf-vesa to uncomment


# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
and restart.

To no avail...

OpenSUSE Install :: Loading Console Keymap On Boot

Feb 11, 2010

During boot-up of openSUSE 11.2 (dup'd from 11.1; default runlevel 3) the following message appears:


My question now: Is there a way to tell SUSE to set the above mentioned keymap using UTF-8 encoding instead of assuming ISO-8859-15?

The few Google search results (~7) on this topic also seem to indicate that this is a 'German-only' problem because it only seems to appear when setting German keymaps.

Slackware :: Change Default Firefox (Save As) Window Location?

May 20, 2010

Since school ended, I decided to finally wipe and due a clean upgrade to Slackware 13.0. Everything is great except one thing. When I want to save something in firefox, the "save as" window that popups up, that allows you to browse to right directory, popups too low. In my window manager(wmii), the bottom is cutoff. I want to have the window popup higher. Is this possible? In my previous install, I think the window would usually remember where it last was, but now it seems to always popup in the same location. I'm not sure if this is slackware, firefox or wmii issue. Also I tried another wm, Awesomewm, and it showed up in the same spot.

Slackware :: Get A US Keymap In X?

Feb 24, 2011

in 13.0 I remember I had to setup some HAL stuff to get a UK keyboard. Now I have upgraded to 13.1 and my keyboard has been replaced with a US keyboard, so I would like to change the keymap to match. From what I have found when reading X no longer uses HAL? In which case, how would I change the keymap? I am not using an xorg config file.

Slackware :: Keymap Change In Locally Installed Wmii?

Jul 1, 2010

I've installed wmii as window manager (slackware 13.1) locally, i.e. not system wide. I use a german keyboard and this works fine until I start my window manager. within wmii the german layout is not present (neither in xterm nor in emacs or ooo3 etc). I changed the file /etc/X11/xorg-conf already accordingly but without any effect. Hence I suspect that the local installation of the wmii requires a change of another config-file?!

Ubuntu :: Finding The PostgreSQL Installed Location?

Mar 24, 2011

I'm using ubuntu 10.04 and PostgreSQL 8.4.7. I need to find out where PostgreSQL is located so I can run commands. I successfully installed PostgreSQL without changing any of the defaults. Matthew & Stones' Beginning Databases with PosgreSQL From Novice to Professional, as well as the PostgreSQL documentation, indicates the standard location is /usr/local/pgsql/bin/ but it's not there; it's somewhere else (ps -el | grep post confirms it IS running and psql is able to do du to display the list of users and l to display the list of databases).

But when I tried to create a new user by running /usr/local/pgsql/bin/createuser the command was not found. I tried to locate the installation by running pg_config --bindir but it said pg_config was not installed. I downloaded pg_config and its dependencies and tried to install them with the package installer, but it wouldn't go because something is wrong with the libkrb5-3 and libkrb5support0 packages - they won't install and the package installer just zips through without reporting missing dependencies or anything. The MD5, SHA1, and SHA256 checksums all match, but they just won't install. I then tried the libk5crypto3 package just to make sure something wasn't wrong on my end - it installed fine. So I searched the PostgreSQL FAQ and found out how to get the version without pg_config by doing a SELECT version(); query. here appears to be no corresponding SELECT bindir(); query. A plain ordinary file search for pgsql, postgresql, etc.

Programming :: Finding Location Of Duplicate Directories

Jan 8, 2011

This simple task is proving harder then imagined. I have a multi-level directory that I'm trying to clean of duplicates, but I can't get 'find' to print what I need to see. To give an illustrative example, here is a dir:

stuart@stuart:~/testdir$ ls *

So the output of find as i'd like it to work would show the two locations of dir1, which would be ./dir1 and ./level2/dir1. But no:

stuart@stuart:~/testdir$ ls -d */ | head -1 | find . "`cat`" -type d

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Banshee And Default Library Location

Jul 23, 2011

I am moving to Banshee on all of my 10.04 systems (anticipating the future of Ubu). Banshee has been doing something I don't understand and which seems very wrong (and which is actually causing some problems, if minor). First let me explain the arrangement. I have a server with a music share we'll call server:/tunes. On all of the machines and for all the users there is a mount (/media/tunes/) for said share.

Additionally so that all users have the same transparent experience, each user has a shortcut at ~/Music/tunes (which points to /media/tunes/). Through this I don't need to alter the default library location and all of the music on the server is automatically part of every library (and all library content and playlists have the same paths). However, Banshee has decided for some files to do one of three things:

1. It points (correctly) to only ~/Music/tunes/path/to/song.flac
2. It points (wrongly) to only /media/tunes/path/to/song/flac
3. It points to both and there is a duplicate entry
I have not knowingly given Banshee the path /media/tunes/anything.
