Ubuntu :: Independent Configuration For Each Of 4 Desktops?

Oct 22, 2010

How to set independent configuration for each of the workspace, the 4 workspace that could be switched from the bottom-right corner?Gnome supports 4 workspace, but now it seems on my computer all of them share the same wallpaper, same files and folders on the desk, and the same google gadget. But I'd like to put different kind of files on different Gnome desktop. How should I do?

Debian Configuration :: Grub Config For Dual Boot (Identical But Independent)

Jan 3, 2016

I have a Jessie with grub2. I've bought ssd and copied root partition onto it. I've also installed grub on this disc. I would like to have dual boot:

- First option: old root booted from hdd
- second option: boot from copied ssd and use root from it.

So i would have two identical but independent configurations.

Both disc has different uids (changed after cloning).

I had a hope that i will change fstab to mount root partition from ssd, but it doesn't work. I need to change grub configuration, but how to add new position?

There is also problem that bios doesn't allow me to choose disc to boot from. So i would rather prefer to change grub configuration for dual boot from different disc.

Debian Configuration :: Multiple Virtual Servers Be Setup In 2 Desktops?

Jun 12, 2010

I now have 2 desktops running debian. I have virtual servers running in desktop 1, and I am hosting my photos using Gallery2. I have copied Gallery2 and the mysql over to desktop 2. I have entered port forward to desktop 1 using port 80 (using my router), and desktop 2 using port 1000. I can only access Gallery2 in desktop1. If I tried to access Gallery2 in desktop 2, I got re-directed to desktop1.


1. Are home routers capable of port forward to more than one computers in a home network behind the firewall of the router? It is Belkin N+ router.

2. Can multiple virtual servers be setup in 2 desktops?

Debian Configuration :: Separate Virtual Desktops On Dual Monitors?

Jul 19, 2011

I have a ThinkPad W520 with nVidia Quadro 1000M and Nouveau drivers. I use external monitor with extended desktop using XRandR. My beef with this setup is that I get just one virtual desktop of a (1440+1920)x1080 size whereas what I would like to have is being able to have one separate (set of) virtual desktop(s) on my 1440x1080 external monitor with, for example, some reference material open, while have other programs working on another (set of) virtual desktop(s) on my main 1920x1080 screen. I've read that this might be possible with so called zaphod mode, but it looks like it involves static rules in xorg.conf which I would like to avoid since from time to time I need to carry my laptop with me without external monitor.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HOW TO MPD With PulseAudio Independent On X

Feb 7, 2010

This tutorial is meant for Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala, but it might work in earlier or later versions as well. I wrote this tutorial mostly because it took me a full day of work using lots of help from people on #mpd and #pulseaudio from the FreeNode IRC server.The goal is to get the MPD daemon working using PulseAudio, but without it being dependent on the X server or a session. To do that we must configure PulseAudio to run in system-wide daemon mode (which is not recommended by the developers, but in this case we do not have a choice). This means it will be using the /etc/pulse/system.pa config file instead of the usual /etc/pulse/default.pa. We must also make sure the appropriate user/group permissions are set, or PulseAudio will be rejecting the connections.The result will be an interrupt-less music environment, not dependent on the X server. Meaning we can for example log out and log in without the music having to stop for even a second. Switching TTYs (Ctrl+Alt+Fx) will also keep the music playing (not possible by default). All that and PulseAudio will still be able to detect and configure all your devices automatically.

Instructions: Make sure you add your username to the following system groups: pulse, pulse-access and audio.Do that by going to System --> Administration --> Users and Groups.Click the unlock button (the one with a picture of some keys), then click Manage Groups. In the list of groups that pops up, for each of the previously mentioned groups click "Properties" and select all the users that you want to have this functionality.

Ubuntu :: Flash Drives Independent Of OS?

Jul 4, 2010

I'm buying a new memory stick online, but on the page I'm buying it from, it says "OS Required: Microsoft Windows XP, Apple MacOS X 10.1.2, Microsoft Windows Vista / 7" so I'm wondering does this mean it won't work in Linux (Ubuntu)? Because i thought that flash drives were independent of OS.

Ubuntu Servers :: Does Every Single Update Need Independent Reboot

Jun 17, 2010

My server keeps displaying a message: "The computer needs to restart to finish installing updates. Please save your work before continuing" every time I log on. Last night I did four consecutive reboots but the message is still there. I log i remote with NX / Gnome. Synpatic shows "0 to install/update 0 to remove".Is this normal? Does every single update need an independent reboot, so there is a queue to catch up with? Or is there some reboot flag that is not resetting properly after reboot?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can GRUB2 Work As Independent Bootmanager?

May 25, 2011

I assume that I have not understand grub2 correct and need help.In the past I have used grub legency in the following configuration.SDA6 = 2 GB partition ONLY for grub as bootmanager.I have sda1-sda3 and sda7 to sda9 as system partitions.As backup I used TAR to an nas system and this way I could restore any partition from the tar file to any partition on my harddisk.The only part which I did manual was edit FSTAB on the recovered partition and modified the grub menu.cfg.This way my bootmanager was independent from any operating system and partition (except sda6).When I replace the harddisk, a recovery of grub legency was easy and after I copied the backup files back to sda6, I could continue to to restore the tar files and my system was up and running again.

Now with grub2 each linux installation thinks it is the master of my harddisk and takes over control from my sda6. Yes it discovers other linux versions etc but I loose control over my bootmanager.How can I use grub2 with an independent bootpartition (sda6) and how can I configure this bootpartition (sda6) from each installed linux partition? With other words no FIXED linux partition is responsible for my bootmanager. for someone asked why I need more versions of linux � the free vmware server 2 does not work on newer versions of linux. The latest vmplayer can not work with newer version of firefox. This is ONLY an example why I have more as one version of linux.

Programming :: How To Write UI-independent Code

Jan 11, 2011

How do you write a program that is independent of the UI (the functionality is a library, and you have, for example, CLI and GUI interfaces as separate apps). The problem I have is how to report status and prompt the user from within UI-independent code? I could split it into parts that do not require any user interaction, but then most of the functionality will be in the UI, not the backend.

Ubuntu Servers :: HOW TO Be In Two Places At Once A.k.a Ipredator Independent Of The Default Route

May 4, 2010

I have a home server running Lucid which basically runs our home lan, but I also wanted to be able to run transmission-daemon over an ipredator VPN connection completely independently of the ethernet port (as far as the application layer is concerned anyway). Most of the howtos for setting up VPN use the VPN as the default route, however I still wanted to run a webserver, dnsmasq etc, not to mention free bandwidth access to my ISP etc.

Thus, this howto. The ppp connection still tunnels through eth0, but as far everthing else is concerned my server has two independent network ports eth0 and ppp0 and applications use the default route via eth0 to our router unless explicitely directed down pppX. I assume that you already have transmission-daemon installed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Could Not Find Platform Independent Libraries <prefix>

Oct 13, 2010

I ran 'sudo apt-get install python', which completed successfully. According to [URL] this should have created the directory /usr/lib/python2.6, but I do not see any such directory.This is causing problems:

$ python
Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>
Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix>
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]


I've tried 'apt-get purge python' and then reinstalling but this has not resolved the issue.

Fedora :: Setting Up One Independent Monitor And One Clone Pair?

Jun 1, 2010

Fedora RedHat Enterprise 5 X version 7.1.1

I've been digging around for a while to try and come up with some solutions, and I'm finally caving and asking for help.I have two PCIe nvidia cards, each with one DVI and two displayport outputs. I know it's a gigantic mess right now as I've been experimenting a lot. If someone can suggest a basic skeleton xorg.conf for one x-screen on GPU-0, one display on GPU-1 cloned onto ANOTHER display on GPU-1 (preferably with a different frequency), it would be much appreciated.

Programming :: Launching An Independent Java Process From Php (via Httpd)

Aug 31, 2010

i'm trying to spawn a daemon-like java process from php on a unix environment, keep the pid for reference and keep it completely independent from httpd processes. I'm using the following code

$command = 'java -cp /myApp/ MyApp';
exec('nohup '.$command.' >> /myApp/myLog.txt 2>&1 & disown & echo $!', $pid);
$pid = (int)$pid[0];

But it gets killed when you httpd restart. I just want it never to get killed except if i call "kill $pid" command.

Fedora :: Yum Will Not Run - Error "Could Not Find Platform Independent Libraries <prefix>"

Jul 27, 2011

It has been working fine until today where I've been trying to get a application installed that I used on fedora12 ok called SecureCRT. It looks like it was not running because of a python lib. My system has libpython2.7.so and it wants 2.4. The developers for SecureCRT said they have not written it for F15 yet but will for next release but try install with nodeps and symlink 2.4 to 2.7. This did not work. I copied libpython2.4.so.1.0 and a link to libpython2.4.so from my old F12 box onto the new one and the app started working a treat but no I've noticed that yum no longer works and can only think its this. I have removed the the 2.4 files but still nothing. the error I get from yum is:

yum Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix> Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix> Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>] 'import site' failed; use -v for traceback There was a problem importing one of the Python modules required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was: No module named yum Please install a package which provides this module, or verify that the module is installed correctly.

It's possible that the above module doesn't match the current version of Python, which is: 2.4.6 (#1, Mar 23 2010, 12:56:48) [GCC 4.4.3 20100127 (Red Hat 4.4.3-4)] If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to the yum faq at: [URL] How do I fix this and is it possible to have both versions?

Ubuntu :: Specifying Which Desktops Programs Open In?

Jul 3, 2010

(I have no doubt this had been asked before, but Googling has turned up numerous results - many of which are written with the assumption that you're a Linux Pro, which I'm certainly not. If there is a more relevant thread already active please point me towards it.)I'm looking for a tool, or console command, to tell certain programs to automatically open on a specific desktop. i.e. Instead of TweetDeck, Thunderbird and Pidgin all appearing on Desktop 1 when I open them up, I want Thunderbird to always live on Desktop 4, TweetDeck to always live on Desktop 3, etc.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Can't Drag Applications Across Desktops

Aug 11, 2010

In my previous versions of ubuntu(8.04, 9.10), I have been able to open applications and folders on one desktop and then drag and drop them onto any other desktop. I upgraded to 10.04 recently on two different computers and this functionality seems to be gone. I can drag around but the cursor stops when it hits the edge of the desktop instead of popping over to the next desktop. The only visible option is to right click and choose move to right or down workspace. This is okay but it can take several steps to move them diagonally if needed.
