I Love...Adobe?

Posted 10-19-2010 at 03:31 PM by beetleman64 (Sensible World of Linux)

That's right. A company who many in the Linux world consider fashionable to hate, is one which commands respect from me. Why? Well the reason is that Adobe actually gives a damn. I know, I know, Flash is a bit of a horror show at times, but the fact that it is available on all major operating systems (even OpenSolaris for those poor fans who are left).

But most importantly, the fact that Adobe supplies a dedicated repository for Ubuntu and Fedora users shows again that Adobe cares....

Red Hat's Missed Opportunity

Those of us who use Ubuntu will be aware that Ubuntu has got a "partner repository", a repository which contains proprietary software which, by nature, cannot be included in the main repository. It is an idea which I personally think is excellent, as it allows software which goes against the principals of Open Source to be included for the benefit of standard users.

It's such a good idea that I'm amazed no-one else has copied it. Those who use a distro outwith the Ubuntu...

Welcome! Bienvenue! Wilkommen!

Posted 10-18-2010 at 02:06 PM by beetleman64 (Sensible World of Linux)

Hello LinuxQuestions.org!

I've been wandering this forum for some time now, and I'm only now beginning to spend some proper time on it. So, here's my new blog. I'll try to update it regularly, and expect a glut of posts as I get through a back-log of issues on my back. My life is fairly hectic, so I won't promise anything, but please have patience.

Also, I welcome comments and I'll do my best to respond to them and, where necessary, either defend or take back my comments....

Still working on my article for www.instructables.com for a parallel port controlled antenna rotator. While I was at it I thought I might experiment with a pir sensor. Let you know more later.

How to add a user

Updated 10-18-2010 at 09:39 AM by T0sh1r0

There are 2 ways to add a user via the command line:
1. useradd - the pure command line way!
Let's add myself on the system:
Code:
useradd -m -G users,wheel,audio -s /bin/bash T0hs1r0
-m creates the home directory
-G adds my user to a list of groups
-s provides the default shell for my user
To set the password for the user:
Code:
passwd T0sh1r0
Code:
useradd -D
will display the current default values and
Code:
useradd -D [options]
will update the default values.

2. adduser...
