Jan 10, 2010

I have a problem accessing a ftp server with SSL/TLS active with Midnight Commander.By now I'm quite sure that Midnight Commander does not support SSL/TLS.Anybody know of a alternative to MC with SSL/TLS support or a work around so that I'm able to use MC?A non cli ftp-client is not an option because the machine I'm accessing from is in runlevel 3.

Slackware :: Midnight Commander Panel Focus?

Mar 25, 2011

MC remembers which panel (left or right) had the focus when closing. The next time MC opens that panel receives the focus. Is there a way to disable that option where the focus is always the left panel?There is a Command option (shortcut Ctrl-u) to swap the panels. I prefer MC simply start with the focus on the left panel.

OpenSUSE :: Color With KDE4 - Konsole And Midnight Commander

Mar 16, 2011

This problem has been bugging me since KDE4 starting shipping. In konsole, if you use the default black on white profile, and you start Midnight Commander, the color of the MC screen is the default blue color it has always been. However, if you change to the green on black profile, which is the one that I prefer, and you start MC, the blue changes to some unreadable light robin egg blue which is horrid.

I'm making a huge assumption here, but it looks like something is off with the green on black profile in Konsole. Try it yourself and you will see what I mean. This only started with KDE4, but it still persists through every version to current.

Jun 26, 2010

I prefer to use the built-in editor that came with mc, which can be accessed with 'mc -e', however, I find when using midnight commander, if I type 'F4', then I'm presented with nano, which isn't what I want.

Ubuntu :: Midnight Commander 4.7 Theming (skinning) Is Broken On Lucid - No White Color

Jul 14, 2010

After upgrading to Lucid, MC looks ugly - like some colors are missed. Its very difficult to work in MC now - directories and files have same color for example. [fantomas@fantomas-laptop]:-boot.png. Also, applying different themes (skins) changes bottom bar (with menu: F1 F2 etc) button colors only, not affecting colors of panels. Install 4.7.3 build of MC from here: [URL]...

When running MC in xterm or gnome-terminal, it doesn't seem to allow the use of Ctrl-enter and Ctr-shift-enter to copy marked files to the command line.

Does anyone know of another way to cause this to happen or a way to enable it under xterm/gnome-term?

Networking :: Finding A Simple Web-based Group File Manager?

Jun 2, 2010

Is there a simple web-based solution for a group looking to securely share files online? The software needs to run on our own servers due to regulatory laws. I want users to be able to go to a web site, request an account (which I should be able to accept or reject), and upload/download/manage files in a web-based (preferably ajax-y) file manager. File access controls (via users/groups) is desirable.Yes, I know that SSH/SFTP is the 'proper' solution, but many of the users will be office workers and installing an SFTP client and configuring it is too advanced for them. Same goes for Samba+VPN setups...

Nov 19, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx
Tux Commander

When I use the default graphical file manger in Ubuntu, holding down the shift key and pressing the up or down arrow keys will select multiple files. This doesn't happen in Tux Commander or Gnome Commander. I tried looking through the preferences of each application and googling on my question. No dice. Is there anything I can do to get this functionality?

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager No Longer Working In 11.04?

May 11, 2011

I recently tried to add a repository by following the directions here: Banshee.fm/download and then select the ubuntu icon at the top. Here is the error I get when I try to run update manager: "Could not initialize the package information An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.

Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:'E:Type 'banshee-team/ppa/ubuntu' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/banshee-team-ppa-natty.list'The command I entered was sudo add-apt-repository ppa:banshee-team/ppa. I have tried to remove all banshee related checks in software sources of the ubuntu software center. Then I just removed the lines all together. I still cannot open update manger. Get the same error. Anyone know of a fix?

Ubuntu :: Have The Equivalent Of A Windows .exe Self-installable File?

Jun 14, 2011

Does Ubuntu have the equivalent of a Windows .exe self-installable file? If so, what is it called? I seem to remember installing LimeWire on Ubuntu a while back and the file I downloaded was self-installable. Is there a place where Ubuntu programs are available for download as packages that install themselves?Why are most programs for Linux not self-installable, like .exe installers in Windows? Is there a security advantage to most programs not being available for download a single automatic install file? It would be much easier for me to go to a program's website, download a single file that installs by itself, and be done with it.

Also, why is it that, unless you install a program in Ubuntu using synaptic package manager, the program cannot be uninstalled under GUI? I really love Ubuntu, but find that even having simple control over installing and uninstalling programs is a real pain. I would love to go to LibreOffice's website, download a single file for Ubuntu that would install the entire program, install it, and be done with it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager No Longer Works Post Upgrade To Lucid

May 28, 2010

When I run update manager, it gives me an error message saying:


This can be caused by:
* A previous update which didn't complete
* Problems with some of the installed software
* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu
* Normal changes of a pre-release version of Ubuntu
if I click partial upgrade, it looks like it did during the upgrade, then says:


There are no upgrades available for your system. The upgrade will now be canceled.
if I click close from the first "not all updates can be installed" dialog, it says:


It is impossible to install or remove any software. Please use the package manager "Synaptic" or run "sudo apt-get install -f" in a terminal to fix this issue at first.
running the suggested line gives the following output:


In Synaptic, fixing broken packages does nothing. Mark All Updates > Apply seems to work, but I'd still like to figure out why Update Manager does not?

Debian Configuration :: Extract Gzip File Don't Get Any Installable Files

Apr 6, 2016

I have installed debian on my dell latitude d630 laptop and am currently making a derivative for others to use. however I can't get the wireless to work. I downloaded it from the broadcom site but it comes as a gzip file instead of a deb file. if I extract the gzip file I don't get any installable (deb) files. I need the wireless to work because now a bridged network from my windows laptop isn't working.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Console Based Music Players?

Mar 22, 2011

I wonder which are the main disadvantages of using console based music players like cmus. I was looking around for reviews and comparisons with GUI music players but didn't find a lot of information which, to me, is a sign that console based players are so much worse off that there is no need to even compare them to their graphical relatives.

However, as I see it, I gain both speed and free up system resources by running a light weight music player in the terminal rather than one with a GUI. Then, I'm not at all very knowledgeable when it comes to audio players and music files so I'm thinking I'm missing something here. But what? Do I lose some tagging functionality, playlist or equalizer options or maybe even sound quality due to different usage of sound drivers or something? Or do people simply stay away from players like cmus just because they can't point and click with the mouse? (I guess it might be hard to get them to work intuitively with USB-attached mp3-players, but that's not a probelm for me.)

Ubuntu Installation :: Create An Installable Image From Existing Installation ?

I installed ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop and configured a lot(mainly setup git, heroku, rails etc), installed and setup lot of things on it to suit my needs. Now I want to move this setup to another machine and want to avoid all the setup again. Is there a way I can create an installer out of my existing ubuntu installation/partition which I can reuse for other machines?

Ubuntu :: Longer Use Wireless Other Debian-based Recommendations?

Feb 15, 2010

I am a Ubuntu/Ubuntu-based linux fan but sadly I have a computer based on the intel 3945ABG chipset that Canonical as broken (the drivers for this chipset work fine in Debian. It is evidently due to patchs Canonical has added to the drivers). In a nutshell, I need a Debian-based Gnome distro with good driver/codec support built in that doesn't worry as much about "free-ness" nor legal pitfalls in certain countries about codecs.This is seen at bug report:

http://intel 3945ABG Sad, too, is that Canonical seems to not be interested in fixing this bug. In fact, with each new distro update, the bug seems to get worse. With this track recored, I don't have high hopes for Lucid. I really need to update the laptop it is on. I am looking for a good Gnome-based debian distro, but prefer one where I won't have to do a whole bunch of downloading "non-free" things like drivers and such (not even sure how to do this since medibuntu is for Ubuntu base distros and I'm not sure if it will work with a "non-patched" Debian repo.

Seems like most debian branches are in fact also Ubuntu branches. I had high hopes for Mepis, but it is KDE-based, and I don't want to go that way. After making the switch to Gnome almost a decade ago, I'm not wanting go mess with KDE anymore.

I have to avoid the Ubuntu distros as they have the same problem (for example, Linux Mint is what I have on this laptop as the wireless sort of worked if just browsing the web but download large files breaks it. It is essentially non-function in Jaunty and Karmic.) I will keep using Ubuntu Netbook Remix on the 4 netbooks we own. And Mint on the desktop and My personal laptop. I would just like advise on a good Debian to use for this other certain laptop.

Ubuntu Installation :: Get The Big List Of Installable Items?

Now that I have the desktop, how do I see it again? Do they each have a name? I remember seeing LAMP server, DNS server, some cloud hosting services etc ..
