Printer Issues

Posted 08-27-2012 at 07:07 PM by aardvark99

After many months of frustration I finally solved a niggling problem with printing.

The number of copies options had been stuck on 2 in Okular and LibreOffice for a long time which I had to keep manually fixing each time I used these products. Couldn't find where the sticky option was. Yesterday I thought to look in the .cups folder and there it was ... copies=2. Edited it to ... copies=1 and the problem has goen away. At least until the next time I set copies to 2 and forget where...

mount scripts

Posted 08-27-2012 at 02:39 PM by ted_chou12

These are scripts that searches for local drives and network shares (cifs). I am putting this up for whoever looking for a ready made script also for my future references:
Code:
#mounts start with f
tbmounted=(f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z)

for each in "/dev/sd"* ; do
	mname=${each##*/}
	
	for alphabet in ${tbmounted[@]} ; do

				mounts=$(mount | grep

Ubuntu Made Easy review Part 1.

Posted 08-27-2012 at 07:48 AM by rich_c

Well, my copy of Ubuntu Made Easy which No Starch Press kindly sent me to review arrived 2 or 3 weeks ago. The book itself is remarkably well put together making it a pleasure to hold and read as well as easy to refer to while working on the 'projects'. No Starch were also kind enough to provide me with a PDF copy which I have shared with a select few people with less (Or different.) Linux experience than myself. So, hopefully future parts of this ongoing review will provide their perspectives...

Crash.

Posted 08-26-2012 at 03:34 PM by peonuser

Computer fell off the desk from pretty high up. It smashed my PalmIIIxe to bits. Kiss it goodbye. The nslu2 was in the same box, but for the time being it still seems to work (so far). have not looked at the computer yet. It was an old p2 I was using as a tftp server. I would preferred to have it broke rather than the palm. Oh well.

Konqueror- the lovely KDE MFS

Posted 08-25-2012 at 04:18 PM by leosubhadeep

Konqueror

KDE has been a much-beloved option for the Linux users. It looks neat, and the latest versions (I am using 4.9.0 in Ubuntu and 4.8.5 in Fedora lately) has showed a faster, cleaner and good-looking desktop environment. Konqueror, in my point of view, is one of the best parts of KDE.
It's a well-known fact that users switching from Windows to Linux find KDE more convenient than other desktops (here I'm excluding the lightweight desktops such as xfce). Right after getting...
