Ubuntu :: How To Make Time & Date Persistent

Aug 26, 2010

I've noticed that every time this desktop is turned on the date & time are as they were the last time I used it, and then have to put in the correct date & time again (this is why I chose the word 'persistent' within the tittle). When I try to change those have to write in the password for the date as well as for the time as if 'login-in' once were not enough! What I want to know is how to put in the date & time and receive the correct amounts the next time I turn the unit on again, as it should be? Do I've to open a terminal & do it with administrator's authority/credentials?

Fedora :: Network Time Protocol Part Of Date / Time Settings

Oct 3, 2009

I've got fedora 11 set up to use network time protocol to sync my laptop's date & time when I'm on-line. The question is simple really, I've added a local universality's time server (what is public) and it's live. but it's added to the end of the default time servers what come with fedora. How do I get fedora to just use the local time server, is it a case of removing the default time servers for fedora, but there is a box what says advanced options which are. sync system clock before starting service ???? & use Local time source (( is that the same as the local ntp server that I've got set up ))Hope some body can help me with the network time protocol part of Date/Time settings.

Fedora :: Make Video Settings Persistent

Sep 4, 2009

I just did a fresh install of Fedora 11 and the only video resolutions available were 640x480 and 800x600.

The native resolution of the monitor is 1280x1024 and that's what I'd like to use.

I was able to get the display to the proper resolution with the following commands:


However, rebooting sets it back to 800x600. I have seen the edits to xorg.conf but that file wasn't created.

Is there a way to make the 1280x1028 resolution persistent without creating a xorg.conf file?

Fedora :: Persistent DNS Cache - Make It Permanent?

Mar 10, 2010

i has setup a persistent DNS cache to improve my web-browsing. it works wonders and with my ICC built firefox my web-browsing is laser-fast, pretty much like using internet explorer in windows! however, everytime i reboot, my modifications to /etc/resolv.conf have been replaced... 1st. the file must contain:

# Generated by NetworkManager (obviously modified by this)
nameserver <----this is lost on reboot, and is needed to make it all work

i have tried to add this to - System/administration/network, but it doesn't seem to fix the problem. 2nd. my next problem is that when fedora 12 starts up,i need it to start "dnsmasq".i have tried to add it as a startup application, but it doesn't start automatically.so i end up having to start it manually everytime:

sudo /etc/init.d/dnsmasq start

it is annoying, but so far i just deal with it, because my browsing is that much faster! i am planning to post a tutorial for those interested in faster web-browsing in linux, but until i can make the changes perminent there isn't much point.

PS: i have tried to write a shell script to do this and every which way i try it fails

General :: Make Slitaz USB Automatically Persistent?

Mar 24, 2010

I installed Slitaz on my USB. However I can't figure out how to make it persistent automatically. There are different sources telling me different ways to make it persistent.

One told me to add "slitaz home=usb" to the syslinux.cfg file like this:

append initrd=/boot/rootfs.gz rw root=/dev/null vga=normal autologin slitaz home=usb

but it didn't work for me.

http://www.slitaz.org/en/doc/handbook/liveusb.html gave an example of how to do it manually but I didn't try it and I also want it to happen automatically.

custompc.co.uk/features/602451/make-any-pc-your-own-with-linux-on-a-usb-key.html is an older article that also explains how to make the USB persistent but I don't want to try it cause it looks outdated (from 2008)

does anyone know the best way to make the USB automatically persistent?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Make Monitor Setting Persistent?

Mar 8, 2011

My system boots in 1024x768 screen resolution. I'd like to change it to 1280x1024 for all users. I can change the setting to 1280x1024 and it's persistent between sessions, but is reset back to 1024x768 on reboot. In the old days, I used to edit xorg.conf to set the the mode I want, but now there's no xorg.conf. I created one using

xorg -configure

but this created an xorg.conf which has no modeline settings at all. The file just looks like a template. Here's what I got:


Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "X.org Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Ubuntu :: Adjust Date And Time In 10.10?

Dec 5, 2010

If one right-clicks on the date and time tab in Ubuntu 10.10 desktop, then there is no obvious way to change the time. If one right-clicks and goes to help, then the explanation for changing time is as follows under the category 'usage':

2.3. To Adjust the System Date or Time.

To adjust the system date or time that the Clock applet displays, perform the following steps:

1. Right-click on the applet, then choose Adjust Date & Time.

2. Type the root password, then click OK.

3. The Clock applet starts the system tool that sets the system date and time. Use the tool to adjust the date and time.

The actual way to do this is as follows:

Right-click on the date and time applet. select preferences, and down at the bottom of the window that opens push the 'time settings' button.

Then you will be able to adjust that date and time.

General :: Make System Partition Letter / Number Designations Persistent?

Aug 15, 2010

Everyone who deals with Linux knows that partitions on hard drives are designated as "sdx#", i.e., sda1 sdb2, etc. I know through experimentation that the number portion of the designation is assigned not according to order on the disk, but chronologically in the order they are created.

Further, if you have several partitions on the disk-say, sda1 through sda3-and you delete sda2, the designation of sda1 will remain the same, but sda3 will become the new sda2. The creation of any further partitions on the drive will start with designation sda3 and increment from that point.

At times this creates a conundrum, especially concerning bootable partitions. Some time back I rendered a partition containing OpenSUSE unbootable because of this, even though Ubuntu owned the GRUB bootloader in the MBR. Ubuntu's GRUB could find and point to the partition using the command "sudo update-grub", but when OpenSUSE took over the boot-up process, its GRUB was pointed to the wrong partition and would freeze up.

My question is this:

Under Windows, one is able to make a Drive letter persistent. Windows will keep the drive letter for that partition and assign around it. Is there a way to change a drive designation number, or at least make it persistent, under Linux? It would be a handy method to forestall these types of booting problems, among other things.

Presently, when a person has installed Linux side-by-side with Windows and want to delete the Windows partition and expand the Linux partition into the free space, I will tell them to format the partition, then shrink it to next to nothing instead of deleting it. This preserves the partition ID scheme while giving them the space to expand their Linux partition into...especially helpful with a seasoned Linux installation that would be a PITA to reinstall and set back up.

Oh, and I already know about UUID. This article explains it, but if you look down through the comments, you will see reasons that it is problematic for desktop application and usage. I want to make it as simple as possible for new Linux users (and myself! ).

Ubuntu :: Can't Access System>Administration>Time And Date

When I try to access the time settings through the System > Administration > Time and Date menu, all I get is the greyed-out display with the message Not authotized to make changes at the bottom.

With other administration functions, I am asked for sudo-style authorization with my password. That doesn't happen with Time and Date.

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Set Time And Date On Netbook Remix 10.4

Jul 27, 2010

Just bought a refurb PC900 and also now have a SDHC Flash with Ubuntu 10.4 netbook remix on it so that I can boot from it. I am having a problem that the UNR shows the time and date 5 hours behind the real time. The notebook BIOS is correct. When I try to set the time and date it goes back to the original time that was set before withing a few seconds. I set up a new user with administrator full access but that did not solve the issue. I have also tried setting up Ubunto One but my system does not act like the directions online. Can I get files from my non-ubunto pc to my PC900? It seems only one way to me right now.
