Ubuntu :: OpenMotif : Create Network Location Link As Local Filesystem Location?

Apr 26, 2011

I'm working with a program that uses Open Motif to create all of the widgets, including the Open File dialog box (obviously). However, Open Motif being kinda old-timey, 80's vintage, and for the most part now an abandoned project, it is quite clunky. So, actually what I need to do is to open some files located on my work server. I have already successfully connected to the relevant server directories with Samba, and with programs built with GTK+ (such as GIMP) I can open files across the network because I have created a bookmark in Nautilus, and those bookmarks appear in the Open File dialog box created by GTK+. Now, Open Motif is different: it doesn't see network locations, orNautilus shortcuts. When I type "smb://serveripyadayada" in the search folder, it really doesn't like it and complains. So, what do I do? Can I get somehow Open Motif to open a network location? Or can I do a run-around and place a shortcut in the file system that points to the network location?

Fedora :: LVM For BAPCKUPPC - Create A Link To The New Location And What To Mount

Aug 26, 2011

I have read that it is best to have a volume LVM set up to contain the BackupPC data that it generates when backing a machine(s) up. By default BackupPC stores the back up data in /var/lib/BackupPC and there is information on how to create a link to the new location and what to mount on the new dedicated LVM What I do not know is how to create a new LVM for the BackupPC files/data on the machine I have. Currently I have a machine running fedora 15 64 bit. It has BackupPC installed via yum but I have not run it as yet. I believe that I have the necessary dependencies installed The machine has two hard drives, one a 80 GB and the other a 500 GB. Currently Gparted is showing;

/dev/sdb1 ext4 /Boot 500MiB
/dev/sdb2 Lvm2 74.04 GiB (in properties it says it is not mounted)
/dev/sdb1 Lvm2 465.76 GiB (in properties it says it is not mounted)

When the machine was loaded with Fedora it was set up as 1 partition and was just a standard out of the box Fedora install accepting the defaults. how do i go about setting up a LVM that I can expand later if necessary to hold the BackupPC data? I saw in one post some where that person call the group Main. how to" or provide a set by set guide as to how to achieve this. Or provide advise o the best way to set the machine up. I do not intend to run anything else on the machine. It is there to back up a server (Fedora 14), A general use machine machine (Fedora 15) and a windows machine (XP).

Software :: Create A Symbolic Link That Points To An Ftp Location?

Jul 1, 2011

I have a large collection of files on a computer (tallgrass) and tallgrass is running an ftp server, which I have the username and password to. There is about 600 GB of files on tallgrass that I need access to, but I don't have a big enough hard drive. I need these data files to run a cpu-intensive calculation, and my CPU is significantly better than tallgrass' cpu, which is why I want to do it on my computer. (Tallgrass also doesn't have enough RAM.) What I would like to do is create a "symbolic link" on my hard drive that will point to the directory containing the data on tallgrass. Read-only is perfectly OK. This way I could read from mylink/data0001.dat and it would read from the file data0001.dat over ftp from tallgrass. I shouldn't have any speed issues because tallgrass is on my 1 Gbps LAN. Is there a way I can do this?

Software :: Editing SARG To Link It To Custom Location?

Jan 12, 2011

I am using SARG for squid report analysis. And it is working fine. But I want to know if there is some custom configuration possible to link the SARG image at the top of the page to my custom location instead of its default homepage on sourceforge? For the ease of understanding, I am attaching the page screenshot here. The SARG image I am talking about is the one on the top in blue colour. It is linked to [URL] and I want it to link it to my sarg homepage.

Ubuntu :: Location Bar Stops Working After Opening External Link In Firefox 3.6

Feb 6, 2010

I installed firefox 3.6 from the firefox-stable ppa repository and I noticed that the location bar autocomplete stops working after opening an external link (e.g. clicking a link in evolution or empathy). The problem still occurs when starting firefox in safemode, so it doesn't appear to be related to a misbehaving extension. The problem is only fixed with a browser restart or when I open and then close 'show all history'.

OpenSUSE :: Nautilus Address Bar Doesn't Show Filesystem Path / Text Location Bar

Aug 22, 2010

I have openSUSE 11.3 Gnome installed. The nautilus address bar shows the "Button Bar" and if I press Ctrl+L it swaps to the "Text Location Bar". The Text Location bar is where you see the full path to the directory that you're viewing.But I can't set the default addressing to the Text Location Bar.What else should I do to get the text location bar (i.e. the full path) to be the default view in the address bar?

Server :: Create Apache Log For Particular Location

Jun 15, 2011

I have an apache server setup where I have different rules using <location>. Essentially, I have a test environment "/test/" and I would like to capture the logs for activity in this location and direct it into a separate log. I know that perhaps I should have set up virtual hosts, but I wasn't aware of them at the time and the change over can not be accommodated at the moment (the change control wouldn't be agreed). I was wondering if it could be done using environment variables.

At the moment I use:
tail -f /var/log/httpd/error_log | grep "/test/"
but this does miss out some messages, particularly multiple line SOAP messages.

Security :: Create A Remote .ssh Directory In An Alternate Location?

Feb 21, 2011

I've set up ssh passwordless logins using keygen etc.before so I know the routine.

The problem I'm currently having is setting passwordless logins when I don't have write permission to my "root" of the remote machine. More specifically the slice provided by a commercial web hosting provider. I can ssh and sftp just fine keying in the password manually but since I'm unable to create a .ssh directory in my "root" I'm unsuccessful in scripting logins. What I'm wondering is if the .ssh directory and associated security files can be placed in an alternate location such as the httpdocs directory and pass that location to ssh in a command line parameter.

Ubuntu :: Automatically Mounting A Network Location

Nov 26, 2010

If I can't get this sorted, I really can't use Ubuntu so pleeease help. I'm a complete newbie, as in, about 2 hours using ubuntu so far. Generally things are going well. I am trying to create a link to my windows xp workgroup where all my data is stored (I was surprised that linux could even see it!) I mounted a volume on the desktop apparently... that worked fine until I rebooted and it had disappeared. it was fairly annoying that I had to go back into the network and re-mount the volume. How can I get it to stay put, even after rebooting? I have limited to zero knowledge of linux/ubuntu so you may need to break it down for me.I tried using 'Storage Device Manager' as someone suggested but emmm I didn't understand a word of it. In fact there weren't many words. Only acronyms

[URL] I don't understand it at all...

Ubuntu Networking :: Network Manager And Location Profiles ?

Sep 17, 2010

What I want is a location, say at home where I might use the wired connection on my laptop or the wireless. Likewise at work, I am usually on a wired connection but sometimes need a wireless connection. Can/does Network Manager let me configure a location with preferred adapter, etc and automatically switch or do I need to install something like Wicd? I don't see anything in Network Manager to do this.

OpenSUSE Network :: Moving A Server To A New Location?

Oct 13, 2010

I have an opensuse server which handles 5-8 sites, a mail server and a nameserver.I will move it to a new location and I'll have a different IP. Now, I didn't configure the server myself, so I don't know what to do so that the mail server, the sites and the nameserver to work in the new location with a new IP.

Does it suffice to change the IP of the nameserver from my domain registrar? What any other modification I'll have to do in order for the mail and sites to work at the new location?I searched tutorials on moving a server to a new location but I didn't find any...

OpenSUSE Network :: Auto Transfer FTP At Another Location

Sep 9, 2011

I have an install of OpenSUSE (11.4) and I'm running vsftp. We have several companies already running scripts on their end to pull all the files out of a mounted Windows share, then delete the contents of that folder. What I'm needing to do is after the files are dropped on a mounted Windows share, I need to somehow connect to an FTP server at another location, send all the files from that Windows share, and delete all the contents from that share. And on top of that, I would like to have this happen everytime a file is placed in the folder or at regular 2 hour intervals or something like that. Can someone point me in the right direction to learn how to do this. I'm fairly familiar with OpenSUSE but this is beyond my knowledge, for now.

Debian Configuration :: Is There A Default 'location' For Network Settings?

Apr 13, 2010

if you try to browse the web from the machine, or log in through a nomachine (nxclient/nxserver) session, it claims there is no internet conenction. You have to run System|Administration|Network and select the stored "Location" for our wired connection. There does not seem to be an option to make this (one and only) "Location" the default. If the machine is up and incoming connections are possible (samba & apache), surely outgoing connections should be working without extra fiddling?

The issue with nxserver (nomachine) becoming unavailable on a re-booted unattended machine (unless someone logs in AT THE MACHINE and runs System|Administration|Network) is causing problems for remote access.

Fedora Networking :: Gnome-network - Properties Change Location By

Sep 28, 2010

In gnome-network-properties I've set up two proxy locations: default and remote.

It's a bit of a fag having to change between them via the gui depending on where I am. Can the proxy be changed by command line because then I can set up a script to use the right proxy automatically? - e.g. use remote proxy if my mobile is connected via usb.

Had a google but don't think gnome-network-properties has command line options so I might be approaching this from the wrong tack.

Ubuntu Installation :: Ghost-like System For Making Full Hard Drive Clones To A Network Location?

Aug 13, 2010

Whenever I'm dealing with large numbers of computers that need to have identical windows installations put on them, I love using Symantec/Norton Ghost to image the NTFS partition (just making the .gho file the size of the disk I've used, instead of the 160/320GB full volume size), and then uploading it automatically to a windows share.I'd love to be able replicate this exact process with Ubuntu. I have one computer that's ready to go, and a few dozen more that I'd like to quickly get that same image on.

I've heard that there's a command called dd that can make disk images, but I'd really like some sort of boot disk that can allow me to make an image, save it, then run the boot disk on another computer to allow me to reconnect to the server and dump that image on that computer. Ghost 4 Linux doesn't have a network/server component, I think.even if such solutions cost money, I'd love to know if they exist or not.

Ubuntu :: Location Of X Display

Apr 20, 2010

On Ubuntu (as with 99% of other Linux distros), CTRL-ALT-F7 brings you to your X display on tty7 (:0)...is there any way for me to get the display to appear on tty2 or tty3 instead of 7?

I ask because my ubuntu box is a media server running XBMC. XBMC has some 'flaws'...one of which is screen refreshing during certain tasks (other than watching a video)...the easiest way to get it to kick back into gear is to switch to a terminal, then back to the X display...not that big of a deal really..but the problem lies in the fact that the remote I use for the computer (simple USB IR Remote grabbed off of eBay) has buttons programmed for CTRL-ALT-F[1,2,3,4]. So, if I could get X to appear in CTRL-ALT-F2 for instance, I could easily switch back and forth without having to get up to walk to the keyboard.

Ubuntu :: Ssh Always Use Alternate Key Location?

I know I can add the -i to an ssh command to choose an alternate ssh key:

ssh -i /path/to/private/key user@remote

Is there a way to permanently set the alternate key file location so I can just:

ssh user@remote

Issue is that this is a dual boot Win and Ubuntu, and I store all my data (keys also) on a separate partition.
