xterm to display wide font properly

Posted 08-28-2012 at 03:02 PM by ted_chou12

I was trying to use export LANG=zh_TW.UTF8, so that my command line at least give me some feedback in chinese. But despite of a readable font, it doesnt display correctly, because the characters seem to show up with spaces inbetween. That looked ugly. So I searched on the web to customize the font in my ./~XDefaults finally:
Code:
!xsession*windows_manager: icewm-rox
!xsession*sound_server: jackd

xterm*title:		Xterm
xterm*font:		-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--18-120-100-100-c-90-iso10646-1

Slackware 14.0 and Multiple Sound Cards

Posted 08-28-2012 at 02:44 AM by D1ver
Updated 08-28-2012 at 02:45 AM by D1ver

So this blog is mostly a place for me to keep notes on particularly annoying problems that were solved after a fair bit of pain.

So my current desktop set up has three sound devices. There is the onboard sound card, there is the hdmi output from my NVidia graphics card, and then theres the PCI Xonar DS card I bought recently.

Which is where the problem started.. I wanted to get the sound to work through only through the PCI sound card, but whenever the computer booted,...

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 ${tbmounted[@]} ; do
		if [ "$mname" == "sd$alphabet" ] ; then
				mounts=$(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...
