I'm having issues trying to find a good viewer for my pdf files. The only one I've found that works very well is the Acrobat Reader port for Linux. Even this isn't as good as its equivalent in Windows. I tried xpdf and some others, but found a lot of functionality lacking, such as the basic ability to get the hand tool for scrolling the page.
I can't print pdf files from the Ubuntu PDF viweer on my printer - I get a message that 'pdftorasterfailed'. My workaround is to print to file then print the postscript file. Annoying but it works. I did some searching and this is a known bug in cups for Ubuntu 10.04. The first thing I tried was a system update, that did update cups but it still fails. I found this link:
and have the patch files, but how do I apply them?
Is there a stand-alone SWF viewer I can use to view downloaded SWF files on Fedora please? I know there's a browser plugin, but it does not have any controls to pause or rewind the file - it just plays the SWF file from start to end. I've tried using Mplayer, but it does not appear to support playing SWF files.
I am using emacs+auctex for latex editing now, I want to change the default viewer for dvi files, since xdvi doesn't render correctly most of my documents; okular works perfectly, though I cannot make it the default viewer I went into the AUCTex manual, and there is a tex-view-program list that should contain the list of viewers, but I cannot find the way to customize that variable.
Any opinions on which of the PCMCIA wireless cards work the best out of the box? I currently have a USB wireless adapter but want to get rid of it and use my PCI slot on the laptop. I am currently running lucid. I would rather not have to mess around with NDISWRAPPER again, something that has a native linux driver would be great.
When I am deleting pictures using gThumb image viewer it asks "The selected images will be moved to Trash, are you sure?" And if I press "yes" button - it moves message to ~/.Trash, can it be configured to move them into "real" trash? I have created symbolic link and it solved part of my problems, but files "restore" option is unavailable to files which were moved in to trash by this method.
I apologize for this being somewhat vague but it happened several months ago and I don't currently have access to the laptop. But here goes anyway:Perfectly working dual-boot system with XP and Ubuntu 8.04. I also think I had installed a different boot loader (or maybe just a GRUB editor?). This was several years ago. I upgraded Ubuntu to 10.04 and I remember it asking me if I wanted to overwrite probably menu.lst. I said no when I should have said yes and now XP still loads fine but neither version of Ubuntu will load at all. I wish I had access to the machine so I could say what the error message is, but I don't and I forget.So I expect that menu.lst is just pointing to the wrong place but I'm not sure how to fix it. Can I boot from a live CD and edit menu.lst? Just thought about that.No biggie but I cannot screw up the XP aspect since that's major drama.
I cannot seem to find any good documentation on the role of flags -Bdynamic and -Bstatic in g++. The man pages are not very helpful either.I found an example on the web:"gcc object1.o object2.o -Wl,-Bstatic -lapplejuice -Wl,-Bdynamic -lorangejuice -o binary".According to which -Bstatic instructs the linker to statically link the applejuice library and to dynamically link the orangejuice library. If orangejuice uses the applejuice library anywhere however,the applejuice is also linked dynamically. Is it correct to assume that this is correct and describes the true functionality of those two flags in gcc? (ie: Bstatic and Bdynamic are used for mixing static and shared libraries during linking)Is it correct to assume that the same applies to g++ as well?
I had a hack on my oscommerce website recently. I have put in the relevant security patches but I need to check whether the hacker left any code changes in my files. What is a good file comparison software for linux? I need it to scan though the current files and folders and compare it the original default oscommerce installation so I can check the code.
I have worked the whole day to get an multimedia player that plays all format's. After trying vlc, realplayerGold, Xine, Kaffeine, Rhythmbox and Totem, I ended up at kaffeine.
I virtually installed al gstreamer-plugins,, like: Code: Dependencies Resolved Package Arch Version Repository Size Installing: gstreamer-plugins-bad i586 0.10.13-7.fc11 rpmfusion-free-updates 1.1 M gstreamer-plugins-bad-devel i586 0.10.13-7.fc11 rpmfusion-free-update 15 k gstreamer-plugins-bad-devel-docs i586 0.10.13-7.fc11 rpmfusion free-updates 163 k gstreamer-plugins-bad-extras i586 0.10.13-7.fc11 rpmfusion-free-updates 69 k .....

It seems I can play at least an mpeg movie, and mp3. But I find the quality of sound of the mp3 in kaffeine very poor. Yes, it plays, but some mp3's are struggling the first 10 seconds or so,, eg, Shivers - Armin van Buuren. When I play the same mp3 in xmms, it plays like a charm. That's not what I want, I want an all-round multimedia player. Xine does the job very well,, like xmms,, and plays also the mpeg, but unfortunately, xine shows an error message about a segmentation fault, upon exiting xine. Any hint to play mp3 files in kaffeine like xmms does?
I need to transfer some massive amount of data (2.5terrabyte, many files, directory structure) to a embedded raid-box which has a minimal linux on it (some custom distro from western digital). We tried rsync (version 2.6.7), but it crashes because the filelist is too big for the ram available (fixed in later versions of rsync, but I don't know how to update, it's not debian based and there are no compiler tools). We tried nfs, but the max bandwidth produced is around 1 mb/sec (cpu bound?), so it'd take around 3 weeks this way. Samba has problems with big files (and we have some 20gb files in there).
SCP isn't installed, and would probably also be cpu bound due to encryption I think. So the only option left would be ftp, we're currently trying using ncftp with the command "put -R /path/to/data/" , but it's been running for over an hour, eating up most of the ram, and not using any bandwidth. I think it is still building a file list or something. FTP already worked for a single 20gb file with acceptable bandwidth of about 12mb/sec. Does anyone know a better ftp program (for console) that can start transferring some data or at least display an estimated time for the copy-preperation?
Is there a way to specify to find that I only want text files (and not binary files)? Grep has an option to exclude binary files, so I thought find probably has a similar feature, but I've been unable to find it.
The find command does not seem to find all files in my directory hierarchy. My home directory is automounted from a server. The command to illustrate this is:find | sed -e 's/^.///' | sed -e 's//.*//' | sort -uThe result misses several directories. Likewise, a find of a particular file, like:find . -iname *sample* -printwhere sample_file.txt resides in one of the directories that is missing in the first find command, finds nothing
I know how to search for normal files but can you let me know " How to search for 5 setuid files on the system. Also explain, for each file, why setuid mechanism is necessary for the command to function properly"
The problem I have is that I need to replace a more complex string, like this: Old string: /mnt/stor6-wc2-dfw1/627896/982574/ New string: /mnt/stor8-wc2-dfw1/369587/302589/ There I don't know how to do it... since the / is what separates the old from the new strings, and the strings that I want to replace have / in it. Also, I would like to know how to specify under what folder replace the files, for example, I want that it search/replaces all files under /var/www/mysite/htdocs folder.
I'm trying to find a good desktop search tool. Beagle is dead, Recoll and Strigi are KDE, and Tracker is not many features (can't even search Thunderbird 3). Do I miss something? Is desktop search on Linux dead? Should I use Google Desktop Search instead

I've got a collection of MP3 files, but sometimes I stumble across a double file in Rhythmbox. At first, I thought they were the real files, but after trying to fix the tags (artist names were incorrect or missing) in tag editor, I didn't see any change in the files in Rhythmbox.
This made me search for the album in which the files were (in Rhythmbox). I found out that these incorrectly named files were doubles, but they didn't show in the actual folder.
So, I deduced, They had to be fakes. I threw the doubles in the trash bin, and there it was. They were hidden files (with a dot in front).
How can I find all these hidden files, so I can remove them?
I am trying to find out how to search for folders that do not contain certain files. My music collection of 20+GB a is organised into folders (Artist-Album). I would now like to ensure that every album folder contains the respective cover art image as a cover.jpg file. Quite a few do already, but many don't. So I would like to find all folders (not files) that fulfill the following criteria:is a subfolder of /home/user/Music; Does not contain further subfolders (i.e. don't want to find artist folders); Does not contain a file named cover.jpg.
My husband partictioned our hard drive Ubuntu/Windows. I use Itunes and Lime Wire a lot. When I am using Ubuntu I cant find the files we used on windows. Can anyone tell me how to access these music and pic files so I can view them and listen to them while on Ubuntu?
