and add
finally restart.Still you can't user X server from outside because it has kind of firewall on it.To disable fire wall run

More Mad Computer Science? (Simple multi-threading in a shell script)

Posted 01-20-2012 at 10:02 AM by rainbowsally

Just dropping by? Here's an easy one. And it's kind of fun.

We've already created a launch utility in this blog, but let's create one that works on other folks systems so they don't need to "install" (so to speak) anything to get the benefits of the functionality.

First let's look at the principles involved

Let's read fstab as a normal user. Don't 'su' or 'sudo su' here, because we don't actually want to be able to write to it. Just picking...

More 'new' funcs for KDE. Most of these will work with other Window managers but some rely on KDE gui apps so we'll call these KDE utilities.

Personal HOME/bin installer/uninstaller, no superuser req'd here and reason for 'new(dot)' file (or file set) creation:

With tax season coming up I have been asked to set up a certain centralized tax service for a company. I won't mention the company nor the well known tax program involved as this post isn't about flaming a product but just to show you how cool commands in Linux can be used to solve, what would originally seem like, complicated problems.

Here's the scenario. The software runs on JBoss (a java app server) and it has log output. During client testing with fake social security numbers...
