Ubuntu One :: Does Desktopcouch Automatically Sync

Feb 27, 2010

I'm playing around with quickly a little bit, and was just experimenting with putting a CouchGrid into an application. It's kind of amazing how easy it is to get structured, persistent data by doing that.

But I would like to understand a little more about the synchronization with UbuntuOne. It has been mentioned here and there that there are hooks in UbuntuOne to synchronize particular apps across different computers, using desktopcouch. That's great and all, but I am actually concerned a bit about data security.

Does anyone know -- if I am working on a computer where I have UbuntuOne enabled, and where I'm using the free 2GB UbuntuOne account, and I write a quickly app that stores some information using desktopcouch; does that information automatically make its way to Canonical's servers? I'm really hoping that the answer is no, and that I would explicitly have to choose to enable some kind of synchronization with the UbuntuOne cloud. But it's really not clear yet from anything I've looked at.

OpenSUSE :: Automatically Keep Htdocs Folder In Sync With SVN Repository?

Apr 27, 2010

I've setup both a http server and svn server and have a SVN project residing in the "/srv/svn/kdrepos/THOR/" directory. I would like this project to automatically do a checkout into the /srv/www/htdocs/ on update/commit. Is this in any way possiblely? Some sites (xp-dev) for example offer an option to have a repository automatically 'added' to a webserver. Does anyone know how is done? I'd xp-dev if it wasn't for the fact that I also need full access rights on the machine

Debian :: Nvidia-settings - Sync To VBlank Not Enabled Automatically

Jun 24, 2011

I have triplebuffer set up in the xorg.conf, i am using the squeeze Nvidia drivers (the ancient one), installed debian way.

In nvidia-settings, i have enabled all the entries of sync to vblank, but after i log in, if i go a glxgears, i get 1000+fps, then i start nvidia-settings, the screen flickers when it starts for some reason, resolution is still at native (1366x768), after starting and quitting nvidia-settings, starting glxgears made it 60fps.

How to i make sure sync to vblank is forced? i prefer it this way.

Ubuntu :: Two-way Sync Between HTPC And Windows Laptop

Jan 28, 2011

I am building an HTPC based on Mythbuntu and will also have a laptop running Windows.

I need some software that will provide two-way syncing between these machines:

1) Sync folders from HTPC to the laptop

As the laptop is new, all the media content I want to have on the laptop (music and photos) will be on the HTPC.

2) Backing up content from laptop to HTPC

New content (purchased music and photos) is likely to be added on the laptop initially so I'd therefore like to sync (instantly/automatically if possible) this back to the HTPC to make it available there as well.

Does anyone know of any good software to do this?

I'd originally been thinking of DropBox but, as I understand it, you have to use a DropBox folder however, on the HTPC, music and photos will be on different drives and it seems that putting symlinks inside the DropBox folder is not recommended.

This post also talks about using Ubuntu One. I think there's a Windows beta version available but does this sync between machines on a local network as I thought it was a cloud storage solution and I'm not looking to upload any content to the internet at this stage.

Ubuntu One :: Connect To The U1 With Laptop And The Documents Directory Is No Longer Able To Sync With U1?

Dec 1, 2010

I am using UbuntuOne (U1) with 2 computers. I connected with my desktop computer to sync with 3 of my directories (Documents, Projects and Public) and uploaded their contents. I connect to the U1 with my laptop and the Documents directory is no longer able to sync with U1. I right-click on the menu and select to Sync but it doesn't work.

The other folders have updated with no problems, just the Documents folder does not. The Documents folder in the Laptop is cleared out. I was going to sync, and then add the files already on the laptop to the directory and sync to move them up to the cloud (and thus, to download on my desktop the next time I log in).

Ubuntu :: Sync Directories Between Desk And Laptop Both Within And Outside Of Home Network

May 26, 2011

I want to sync several directories between my laptop and desktop both at home and away from home. It seems like the tool to use for this is unison (I use rysnc for backups, but union seemed, better for this sort of thing - let me know if I'm wrong).

I found several posts that appear promising, however I was little confused about the details as I don't have much networking experience up to this point.


1) Is a reverse ssh connection the way to go? If I only wanted to do this on my home network I could just use ssh right, however in order to get around the router outside my home network the reverse ssh is necessary?

2) How do I handle changing IP address of my laptop?

Ubuntu :: Battery Not Recognized On Laptop (and It Recognizes Laptop As A Desktop)

Apr 15, 2011

I have installed Ubuntu (both 10.10 and 11.04 pre-release) on my laptop but my battery is not recognized and it is detected as a desktop system rather than a laptop. I have tried the cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/state method but the directory doesn't exist. I have tried another guide to paste the battery info into this directory but it doesn't allow me to do that and says that the directory doesn't exist, even though I'm trying to make it. I tried it in root nautilus and even on an install of Lubuntu (with a root file manager) but it still failed to budge. I really don't know what to do as I have tried all the guides on the internet that I could find.

Ubuntu :: Laptop Does Not Automatically Suspend When Lid Opened

Oct 25, 2010

This is a new issue since 10.04 (9.10 did it right). I'm on 10.10 netbook right now. What I would like to figure out is how to tell the system to go into suspend when idle even though the lid is open. I don't know if this problem is hardware specific or just a config file edit. Just to get it out of the way, it does suspend correctly when the lid is closed - and I can tell it to suspend when the lid is open, but what I need is for it to suspend when I fall asleep working or forget I left it open without overheating / running out of battery and losing my work. I'm pretty good at doing things on linux, despite the fact that I'm running the netbook remix, so don't be afraid to tell me to open a file in the terminal or whatever.

Fedora :: F11 Laptop Suspends Automatically?

Sep 2, 2009

I have an up-to-date x86-64 F11 installation. Twice every day once precisely at 10:40am, and once sometime roughly around 1:26pm -- the laptop suspends. Even if I'm in the middle of typing something. I've checked the BIOS and nothing there would indicate a timer for an automatic suspend message being sent to the OS. This is a 2.5 year old machine, and it's only run Fedoras (7,8,9,10, and now 11). This problem has only cropped up on Fedora 11.Any idea where to start debugging it? I looked at /var/log/pm-suspend.log, but it just seems to indicate that it properly went to suspend and had no problems waking up 8 seconds later.

Ubuntu :: Samba Stalls - Link Desktop "Karmic" Up To An XP Laptop "homegroup" For File Sharing

Jan 30, 2010

I am trying to link my desktop "Karmic" up to an XP laptop "homegroup" for file sharing. Both computers are on my wifi served by a router. The following plugins were installed via Synaptics:


Initially clicking on "samba" brings this up: "warning: some lines couldn't be understood while reading the configuration file /etc/samba/smb.conf. these may be unknown configuration directives samba plugins but could also be configuration errors." You ignore the warning and continue on. The results are a static "samba server menu" accepting what you type ...but doing nothing with it upon pressing OK.

Hardware :: Laptop Touchpad Not Working - Function Key Automatically Activated On Restarting Ubuntu?

Dec 10, 2010

Everything was working fine when my laptop got shut down after a battery failure. Now, on restarting, the computer hangs at the login screen. If I close the lid and reopen it, the keyboard seems to work and I can enter password and login, but the touchpad doesn't work at all and all the functions that were to be performed while holding the function key seems to happen automatically (For eg. when I press 0, another key gets typed). Perhaps the drivers are't getting loaded properly, I don't know. The same story is there no matter how many times I restart. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and the laptop is Dell Vostro 1525

Red Hat / Fedora :: Automatically Re-activate/connect Wireless When Laptop Opens?

Mar 28, 2010

I've got my Lenovo T60 laptop wireless running without too much trouble, the only problem is when i close my laptop lid and open it again the wirelessconnection is down and i simply cant click on the network icon in the notification area to re-connect as wlan0 is inactive. If i go to System>admin>network i cant activate the interface either as the 'active' button is greyed out, the only way to get the thing to come alive again (other than a full reboot) is to toggle the wireless switch on my laptop off and then back on.Not sure this should be required, i've got the interface configured to start automatically but it doesnt seem to care.

Ubuntu One :: Sync Chewing Up CPU Cycles - Using From 50-80% Long After Any Sync-able Files

I've got Ubuntu One syncing a single 25MB folder on 4 computers. On one of these computers, the ubuntuone-syncdaemon process constantly pegs the CPU, using from 50-80% long after any sync-able files have been modified and successfully synced. The process is only using 8.9MB of RAM.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Sync Audio On Already Badly Out Of Sync Video?

Jul 9, 2011

Audio sync method. "Stretches/squeezes" the audio stream to match the timestamps, the parameter is the maximum samples per second by which the audio is changed. -async 1 is a special case where only the start of the audio stream is corrected without any later correction.Searching the net makes one believe that this command is just some sort of magic.People just put it in the line and it just works. Isn't that nice?

It says nothing about how to change the TIME the audio starts syncing. Like do I want it to start 5 seconds delayed? Or what about 5 seconds sooner?What if the audio gets more out of sync as the video goes on? Can I slip it a little at a time? What? No magic?No one mentions a file that already has badly synced audio.So what -async 1 really does is simply start the audio at the beginning of the file. LIKE AS IF THAT ISN'T STANDARD PROCEDURE?So what is the exact solution to syncing a messed up video? And why can't it just do the proper "timestamp" sync in the first place?No docs, no info and you are left out in the cold.

Ubuntu One :: Can't Connect For File Sync / Enable This?

Jul 27, 2010

I've been happily using Ubuntu One for a few weeks now, synching some files and notes.

Today I inadvertently clicked another folder to 'synchronise with Ubuntu One'. This was a 500mb folder containing work and personal files which I'm not ready to rely on the cloud for.

I must admit I panicked a bit as I attempted to stop the synch. I deleted the entire folder (got it backed up on an external hd) and the synch stopped. I then logged in to the U-One website and deleted the folders and files it had uploaded by that point.

When I restored the folder from the ext hd it started to synch again. This time I removed my machine from the U-One preferences and eventually cancelled my account.

I have now restored that folder under a slightly different name so it doesn't try and synch it.

Meanwhile I've re-started my U-One account and have added my machine so it appears on the webpage. I've uploaded a file via the website. I've also been able to successfully synch Tomboy notes in both directions.

However, I can't synch files with my Home/Ubuntu One folder. I've attached screengrabs of the three tabs in U-One Preferences which show 'disconnected'. If I click 'connect' on the Devices tab, it simply greys out and nothing else happens.

Files in my Home/Ubuntu One folder all have the Unsynchronized emblem against them (a cloud with a cross in a red circle). code...

Ubuntu One :: Ubuntuone File Sync Overloading CPU

May 5, 2011

After upgrading to 11.04 I find that if I launch ubuntuone my machine immediately slows to a crawl and there is intense hard drive activity.This persists for hours. Only solution so far is to close ubuntuone and remove it from list of startup applications. I have made no changes to the files marked for ubuntuone syncing, and everything worked fine in 10.10.

Ubuntu One :: Drop Box - File Sync In Progress

May 13, 2011

I thought I would give Ubuntu One a try, even though I have used DropBox for ages. I think it is all set up ok, yet the box is open and it says along the top:
Using 102.6 MB of 2.0 GB (5%)
File sync in progress......
It has said that for 5 hours now.....is it actually doing anything? I have closed it a couple of times, and opened it, and it goes right back to the same thing. What is more weird is there are no sent / receive lights flashing on my Modem either.

Ubuntu One :: Repeated Sync Of Nonexistent File

Sep 1, 2011

U1 is trying to sync a file which doesn't exist on any of the devices attached to the account nor in the cloud folder. I've tried using U1sdtool to stop it, including the following commands:

I've also tried actually creating a file of the same name that it keeps trying to sync in the hopes that it will latch onto that one instead, but no go. I tried deleting that file, but no go. It constantly loops through the same nonexistent file, over and over and over and over and over...

It also only does this on one device. It does not do that on the other devices.

And, yes, I've done u1sdtool --waiting, and there is the nonexistent file, on the list, with all of the real files that actually do need to be synced backed up behind it.

"Connection to the other side was lost in a non-clean fashion."

OpenSUSE :: Sync Pim Data With Palm Treo 680 Via Bluetooth - Jpilot Sync Suddenly Broken

Oct 24, 2010

I use jpilot on opensuse 11.3 64bit to sync pim data with my Palm Treo 680 via bluetooth. This worked fine until today. Now I get the following error message when I try to sync: Syncing on device bt: Press the HotSync button now dlp_ReadSysInfo error Exiting with status YNC_ERROR_PI_CONNECT Finished.

The last successfull sync was on the 20th October and today is the 24th October. I did not change any settings in jpilot or on my palm device. So I guess there must have been an update of opensuse which causes this error. But I do not now how to look up the updates during this period or how to undo them. Was there an update between the 20th and the 24th Oktober, which might affect either jpilot or bluetooth functionality?

Ubuntu :: XFCE Desktop To Load Up Automatically Without GDM

Jun 6, 2011

I'm making a Home Theatre OS, and I would like my XFCE ubuntu desktop to load up automatically without the use of GDM. This is because once remastered, the GDM cannot automatically log in until it's been set up to again. And the fact I removed all the GNOME icons which took up 50MB of space, so now the GDM interface is all glitchy xD

It basically involves removing GDM, logging in (the login and password are both 'media'), then having an automatic login command to run 'startx'. I've removed GDM on my test environment, and so far managed get in manually by logging in and typing startx. (On that note, do I even need a username and password? Can't I just use the password only for su?)
