Ubuntu :: Advanced User Settings / 'Connect To Ethernet And Wireless' Option Of The Advanced Settings?

Aug 12, 2010

I'm trying to create a user account for my children in Ubuntu 10.04

When creating their account, I have turned off the 'Connect to ethernet and wireless' option of the Advanced Settings.

However, when I log into their accounts, they still have full access to the internet through both the wireless and ethernet connections. Is this option for some other purpose?

Is there an alternate way to limit internet access for childrens' accounts in Ubuntu? (I'm used to MS Family Safety as a filter for internet access - is there an eqivalent for Ubuntu?)

Ubuntu :: Setting Up Hard Drive Partition With Advanced Settings?

Nov 27, 2010

Basically I got Windows 7 installed on my laptop and it's been doing nothing but slowing down more and more even though it isn't used for much more than basic internet use and I realized the hard drive was the cause, I did a bunch of stuff to try to fix it that I won't get into here, and in basic I'm to the point I'm just going to reinstall Windows 7, but this time with the help of Ubuntu's partitioning utilities.

I've already had the first ~5GB of the drive overwritten with zero's (thanks to DBAN) and now I'm booted on the Ubuntu LiveCD and trying to learn the command line stuff for formatting a drive. What I want to achieve is use the smallest amount of space possible for the MBR and that's also a point I don't quite understand.
After some research on Google I read that the MBR is on one sector only the very first one, yet the first partition on a hard drive starts anywhere from 63 to 4096. Why are they so far apart? And can I force the partition to be moved closer? I know I know their is pretty much no purpose to this but it bugs me knowing that their might be 31MB (64 512byte sectors minus 1 (MBR) and 64 (beginning of partition)) just going to waste when I could put the NTFS MFT there. Then the second and last part I want to understand is I want to make the NTFS partition have a 512byte allocation unit size and have it lined with the 512sectors on the hard drive so it can have the max performance. Does anyone know how to do this stuff or could find better info than I have on the internet?

Ubuntu Servers :: Advanced Rsync - Make The Rsync Set Or Keep The User And Group Affiliations?

Thought I'd post it here because it's more server related than desktop... I have a script that does:


This is used to sync my local development snapshot with the live web server. There has to be a more compact way of doing this? Can I combine some of the rsyncs? Can I make the rsync set or keep the user and group affiliations? Can I exclude .* yet include .htaccess?

Ubuntu :: Copy User Settings In 11.04 / Copy A User's Settings To A New User's Settings?

Sep 1, 2011

I'm looking for the easiest or cleanest way to copy a user's settings to a new user's settings. I don't need to copy any files from the original user, but setting up a home directory would be great.

If it's done at the command line, that would be just fine. I'm very familiar with working at the command line.

Ubuntu :: Advanced Networking ?

Feb 11, 2009

I have three network interfaces on my box. Lets call them A, B and C.

I want to place my box in-line within our corporate network, so that traffic from LAN goes into interface A and is directed out again through B. So essentially making a Switch. And the last interface is for management of the box it self.

Is this possible?

LAN ---> [[ int . A -- int . B ]] --------> Firewall --> Internet

Could i configure the interfaces so that you basically make a software based TAP? Or on other words "Cut the cable" and putting my box in the middle....

Ubuntu :: Less Advanced GRUB When Writing ISO To USB?

May 22, 2010

I've rolled a custom version of the live CD, and everything's going great on it.I was asked to make it a bootable USB stick as well.This was simple enough by installing UltraISO on my Windows box and writing the ISO to a USB stick through the 'Bootable' menu. But for some reason it boots up to a slightly less-pretty version of GRUB.That's all well and good, but now the language selection menu is gone. Is there any way to get that menu in the less-pretty GRUB? At the very least, is there a way to hard-code the language there so certain people have sticks with certain languages?

Ubuntu :: YaST2 - More Advanced Control Panel?

Sep 27, 2010

I'd switched to OpenSuse around ubuntu 8.04, for a number of reasons. I thought I'd give (k)ubuntu another try, cos so much software gets released that's *ubuntu compatible these days, almost as much as is windows compatible. So far it's not bad, but I've got one gripe, that was one of the things that drove me away from kubuntu before. All the advanced user graphical admin stuff is essentially hidden! In OpenSuse, you've got Yast2, which gives you absolutely all your admin stuff in one "control panel". Kubuntu used to have this, in kcontrol, but that's long since gone.

Is there something like Yast2 for kubuntu? As an example of something I could easily do in Yast2 and can't find an easily graphical way to do in kubuntu 10.04-I swapped out one of the hard drives in my system. Now every time I boot, the bootloader is looking for the now missing hard drive, and I have to tell it to skip it. I know I could manually edit the file, but I'd rather have a nice graphical config tool that lets me configure things. I can't seem to find such a thing anywhere in my kubuntu install tho.

Another example-there doesn't seem to be a gui partitioner installed. I can just use parted from the command line, but like I said, I prefer a graphical interface. I installed partitonmanager, but still. A graphical partitioner seems like a pretty crucial thing to have in an OS. Maybe I just missed it someplace, but that comes back to my main point, which is that all the power user graphical stuff seems to be missing, or really well hidden; and it would be nice if all that stuff was in a single place. So, any control panel sort of app, that includes the sort of stuff Yast2 has on OpenSuse?

General :: (Ubuntu 10.04) Advanced Graphics Won't Work

Feb 26, 2011

I have been trying to get the advanced graphics for compiz, emerald, and cairo dock working for a few days now, but alas, I have failed horribly. I tried to uninstall compiz and emerald a few days ago (stupidly) and since then, these problems have arisen. I tried seeking help on ubuntuforums.org, but they were unable to help. You can see the entire thread at the following link: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1694800&page=2

If you want a detailed list of everything I've done, you can go to that site, but here's a summary: I entered a series of code that I was lead to believe would eradicate compiz from my system so that I could go through with a full reinstallation. However, the result was that I now can't load any advanced graphics from emerald, compiz or cairo dock. I've tried reinstalling the entire operating system, but I'm getting the same problem. I also tried a live CD for 10.10, but with the same results.

I don't know if this is a relevant piece of information, but one thing of note is that I typed "compiz --replace" into the terminal and got the following:


WARNING: Application calling GLX 1.3 function "glXCreatePixmap" when GLX 1.3 is not supported! This is an application bug!

WARNING: Application calling GLX 1.3 function "glXDestroyPixmap" when GLX 1.3 is not supported! This is an application bug!
Again, I don't know if that helps at all, but there it is...

Ubuntu :: Wallpaper Option Not In CompizConfig Settings?

Brand new to ubuntu and I'm trying to get different wallpapers on different work stations. I've read several tutorials and they all say to go to my CompizConfig Settings and go to the Utilities section, under which you will find Wallpaper. I went there and can not find it. I can't right click on my desktop either for some reason. Ran a quick search and I couldn't find anything in the forums.

EDIT: Solved! Had to download compizconfig-plugin-extras

Ubuntu :: Cannot Update Video Driver For Advanced Effects

Jul 11, 2010

I just installed linux Mint 9, although I was having the same exact problem with ubuntu 10.04. Just testing mint out for a bit. I am running on the 64 bit OS. When I got to select advanced visual effects, It goes to enable the drivers but then I get this message.

"SystemError: Failed to fetch [url] Not Found [IP: 80]"

It used to work before but then just stopped one day when I booted up. I use Docky, and it won't work without the drivers because it requires compositing to work properly. I am using a Nvidia GTX 260 video card if that has anything to do with it.

Ubuntu :: Advanced Desktop Effects Without Proprietary Driver 10.10

Dec 14, 2010

Is it possible to enable the desktop effects without enabling the proprietary driver? Im using an Asus 51vx with Nvidia Geforece GTX 260m and the proprietary drivers kind of suck. My resolutions (although set correctly) are distorting pictures, my dual monitors is being funky and unpredictable... etc. Everything works great without the drivers installed except i cant enable advanced desktop features so my awn looks good . I know its just cosmetics, but i love my cosmetics, and they took a loooong time to get perfect.

if this is a repost but i couldnt find it anywhere. (so much info about advanced desktop effects out there).

Fedora Installation :: F15 Aware Of Advanced Format HD's?

Jul 21, 2011

Can anyone tell me if F15 is aware of the new Advanced Format Hard disks. The new dell laptop has one of these drives in it. The reason for the question is the disk is a 250Gb but only seems to have 230ish available which does seem a lot to loose? The dell website only talks about Windows and not linux. Below is from their site:

"In an effort to support higher capacity hard drives, the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) industry is moving towards Advanced Format (AF) HDDs with 4KB sectors to address the current limitations with the 512-byte sector HDDs. The transition to 4KB sector HDDs will allow storage devices to more easily adopt larger capacities in both the notebook and desktop space. While hard drives will transition to 4KB sectors and to maintain backwards compatibility, current Advanced Format 4KB HDDs, also known as 512e HDDs, will emulate 512-byte SATA communications to hosts and will operate at 4KB."
