Ubuntu One :: Cannot Find Way To Modify Account Settings For Client Software
Mar 14, 2010
When I first installed Karmic, I created a dummy Ubuntu1 account to play around with and have long since forgotten everything about it. Now I am attempting to setup a real account and I cannot find a way to modify the account settings for the client software. Is there a way or do I have to purge it?
I am currently using Debian Lenny and am having problems with my pptp vpn client. I can use the following software for as long as I like without my pptp vpn connection dropping out: (1) iceweasel (2) icedove (3) gtk-gnutella
If a use a bittorrent client, however, my pptp vpn connection drops out within a few minutes. I have tried these bittorrent clients: transmission, deluge, tixati. Enabling or disabling the firewall makes no difference.I have searched pptpclient.sourceforge.net and Debian User Forums but have not been able to find any suggestions on settings to change in a bittorrent client.
I can't log my account because i modify system wide profile, i installed java bundle with netbean. After it's completed, then i add the java path to system wide profile. either /usr/profile or /etc/profile. i don't remember. before i modify it, i change the permission using chmod 700. When it's done, i change it to 400 which is read and view only.
I can't login my account now. how do i fix it? how do log in root account to fix it? and i didn't activate my root account. it logs me in then log me out right away .
We are looking to monitor and log selected application file systems for file create/modify/delete changes that will also include, user account that changed/deleted the file, file name and date and time of event. Everything I have looked at does not seem to provide all of the information that we need.Inotify seems to monitor modify/create/delete but does not seem to provide the user account. Auditd seems to monitor modify/create/append with user account, but not deletes.We need to provide this information to auditing for Sarbane Oxley compliance.
anybody know how to modify the kbluelock settings?I have kbluetooth 4 and in it there's the kdebluelock. When I turn off the visable mode on my phone it locks the computer. When I make it viseable again it unlocks the computer.However I think the time and distance settings should be changed. I think it takes about 30 seconds between scans before it finds the device and unlocks or unlocks the computer. I can also stand a good 10 meters away and it won't lock the computer; even between rooms sometimes.I'd like to change it so it scans faster and it'll lock if I'm more than one meter away. I know the bluetooth ranges are from 1, 10, and 100 meters; varying on the device class.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my desktop and installed the AMD restricted drivers (Radeon HD 5770). I installed compizconfig-settings-manager and compiz-fusion-plugins-extra. All of the plugins have worked fine so far. However, while "Cube Reflection and Deformation" works, I cannot change the settings. Specifically, I tried changing the cube caps from the visually irritating logos to which it defaults to plain white, but the logos stayed. I also tried removing the annoying "Reflection" option, but to no avail.
I soon discovered that none of my settings would apply to the plugin, although they would display as though they were applied in the settings manager. Changing the settings in other plugins, like "Desktop Cube," works fine. So far, I am sticking just with the "Desktop Cube," "Rotate Cube," and "3D Windows" plugins, but I would really like that cylinder. And I have used Compiz, including the deformation plugin, for years with no difficulty.
I was just wondering if there are any applications that would serve as a webcam manager in Ubuntu. I am running 64 bit Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell XPS M1530. Under Windows, I was able to modify camera settings (resolution, image, special effects) from a dedicated panel any time the camera was on. I don't need a lot of flashy features, but it would be nice if I could lower the resolution so that Skype runs more smoothly.
I'd like to set up my PC so that it has one "master account" for system settings, desktop appearance, etc. And then I'd like other user accounts that read these settings so if I change the settings on the master account, those accounts follow the new settings but cannot change them. But at the same time, these accounts cannot be allowed to read to master account's personal files (documents, music, etc.) Each account would be restricted to its own home directory, as expected.
Is there any way to set something like this up or am I dreaming of the impossible?
my computer recently ran out of disk space, and for whatever reason (presumably bad coding!) that caused Evolution to freak out and deny all knowledge of my email account.Fortunately, all the email is still in present in ~/.email@example.com but I have no idea how to make Evolution realise that and let me load it again.
how to login with ubuntu ldap server account from ubuntu client(karmic). Ubuntu server and client setup is done properly but not knowing how to login to ldap server graphically from ubuntu client. I don't want to login via SSH
I've finally got all my accounts the way I like them in Thunderbird. I'm using IMAP and so don't have to move the emails, but how do I migrate my account settings to my other computers? The other machines are running WinXP.
I work in a shared computing environment and the default setting is r-x for group and others; it's upto the users to change this. I can chmod and change the permissions for all the files. However any new files created all have the default permissions. Is there anyway to change that so that I don't have to chmod everytime or run chmod as a cronjob?
On my Ubuntu 11.04x64 server, I have service accounts running which do not log in and do not have home directories. These service accounts are responsible for running processes which are invoked as services.When these services created new files, I need them to be created with the permissions 664 (UMASK 002).I edited the /etc/profile umask setting to reflect this. I see that now my user account creates files which reflect this new umask setting, but the service accounts do not when I manually created files using their accounts (sudo -u serviceaccount touch newfile).
When I reinstall my distro (MEPIS, for the last 2.5 years), making my new user account preserve all the old account's settings has always been a difficult and very messy process, especially if I have installed a new copy on another partition. (I'm doing that soon, so I have this copy as a backup until I have everything the way I want it on the new copy.) Most of my stuff gets saved, but not everything. The biggest problem is that, even if I select "preserve data in /home" in the MEPIS installer, my keyboard shortcuts become unusable (not completely erased) under odd circumstances. They're still listed in file /home/josh/kde/share/config/khotkeysrc, but they still can't be used, and I have to open hhotkeysrc and manually delete them and then reenter them in the menu editor (the K menu, by the way, gets completely overwritten).
I can't just overwrite the entire new user account with the old one; I've tried, and something goes wrong so that the new account can't be opened (probably because some important files are inaccessible--I can't tell which ones they become inaccessible).Anyway, is there a program that can preserve all the user account settings neatly for a new installation of the distro? I am supposing there is a program or at least a method, because I never hear others complaining about this problem. I probably don't know something I should know.
I am running Debian Squeeze, 64-bit.I would like to try my hand at bash scripting. So at the author's suggestion (first chapter of Chris F. A. Johnson, Pro Bash Scripting from apress) I created a /bin directory in my home directory. So now I would like to modify my PATH statement so that when I run a script from my bin directory my shell will find it.I did that. He then says that I should add this to ".bash_profile, .bashrc, or .profile depending on how bash is invoked." The find command is unable to locate any of these files. So I searched the forum, found the link above and tried to follow that. No luck so I assume that how Debian handles PATH statements has changed since that post?
I also have checked the wiki and worked Google as hard as I know how to do.Very simply where the heck is my PATH statement and how do I modify it?
I am trying to modify the "Configure Window Behavior" settings so that a new KWrite window will have a default size and location that is not affected by anything I did to a previous KWrite window. I have found that "Force" does that; unfortunately, "Force" also locks the window in position, preventing me from moving or resizing it if I should want to. Is there any setting that forces a default window size and location but allows me to change it?
Have anyone used an email client that stays in sync with a free Hotmail account? I have setup Claws Mail but when I delete an email within the client it remains on the server. I remember this being the same for other email clients. Is there any client that will stay in sync? If I delete an email from within the client it will also be deleted from Hotmail's web bases interface.
1. My status selection has disappeared from the contacts menu (See #1 on picture). This lead me to a desperate search on how to delete/reset any config files for empathy. Tried to complete-remove and then reinstall it. This though didn't remove the settings or repair the glitch but instead led me to my second problem.
2. After reinstallation, this redundant little notification icon appeared (See #2 on picture). Cute... now how do i get rid of it? how to reset any empathy settings (problem one would at least solve then... I would presumably think?

I had configured a gmail account in evolution and used it successfully until recently when after a restart evolution asks me again to configure an email (Evolution setup assistant wizard) again.I already have my email configured but something must be preventing evolution to find my email account. What can I do to recover all that?My .evolution/mail folder still has all the data for example (got there some hundreds MB still). and I also have there other folders: addressbook, calendar..etc
I'm looking for a script that can do two things: (1) determine the shortname of the user with the largest account in /Users and (2) look up their full/long name. I'm going to use this script to help identify who the user on a computer and while I know that's possible that a sometime-user may have a larger account than the normal-user on any given computer, the results of a script should be sufficient in most cases for my needs.I'm not sure the best way to around this. I know that can use "du -m -d1 /Users" as root:
root on torchwood [ ~ ]$ du -m -d1 /Users 157 /Users/admin
