After getting tired of having to run skype in qemu, I did some digging and ended up using a fake webcam with lower resolution: [Unit] Description=fake webcam [Service] ExecStartPre=/bin/modprobe v4l2loopback card_label='Skype Sucks' ExecStart=/usr/bin/ffmpeg -loglevel panic -f v4l2 -video_size 640x360 -i /dev/video0 -f v4l2 -vf scale=320:-1 -r 10 /dev/...

Based on the additional info you gave me, I'm going to assume it's a sort of bug in the BlackArch installation software. My suggestion is to install vanilla Arch Linux, then install the BlackArch toolset within Arch Linux. On the BlackArch web site, under "Downloads", there's instructions for doing exactly this. The ArchLinux Wiki has an excellent beginner's ...

What I do here to get the glyphs I need working on urxvt is to add more fonts in the font list: URxvt.font: xft:Ubuntu Mono:pixelsize=18:antialias=true:hinting=true,\ xft:Source Code Pro:pixelsize=18:style=medium:antialias=true,\ -*-unifont-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* It is still not perfect, though. I still can't get everything ...

You generally cannot chainload from an UEFI bootloader to a BIOS one, or vice versa. The best you can get is choosing between Windows and GRUB in the firmware's boot menu (the one behind F12 or Esc), as most firmwares also list BIOS-mode disks as special UEFI boot entries. The process in this case would be the same as a regular Arch installation (since dual-...

Yeah if you have existing Windows 10 BIOS/MBR installation, the easiest way would be to create an EFI System Partition (FAT32) with part (100MB or so) of the space you prepared for Arch. UEFI/MBR should work as long as your motherboard have a standard-conforming UEFI. However that way grub won't be able to chainload Windows Boot Manager (unless you install ...

There is no menubar. All functions have been put in either the F10 menu, or the WinF10 global app menu. (There really weren't many functions to start with.) Generally, F10 to open the application menu is more common than Alt. But I don't know if there's a shortcut for the "view options" popup, other than some careful tabbing. The older "classic" Evince ...

The answer comes from a tip I received on this same question asked in the Unix & Linux StackExchange. Per my setup, I had two systemd network unit files: one for the bridged adapter and one for the host-only adapter. I wanted the bridged adapter to have a dynamic address because the virtual machine is on a laptop that moves between networks, and I ...

Your questions is a little vague, but from what it sounds like you have the laptop hard drive connected into your desktop and you're looking to install arch linux on this hard drive? If so I'm going to assume you want a total OS install. You'll need to boot from an arch linux install disk (be it USB or a CD) on your PC. When going through the installer ...

First, if you ping google.com, your PC tries to resolve the name to an IP address via a nameserver given in /etc/resolv.conf (without e at the end!). Second, in case it was not a typo here on superuser.com, your nameserver points to 193.168.0.1, not 192.168.0.1. Therefore, it cannot resolve the name. Instead, your PC tries to get to 193.168.0.1 and does ...

On 5.0.20, my Ubuntu guest is able to connect in bridged mode only when using an Ethernet connection -- i.e. not when using a wireless connection. NAT mode is able to work with a wireless connection.

It's likely that the HFS volume is not mounting because the HFS partition is wrapped in a CoreStorage volume (the default since OS X 10.10). You can verify if this is the case with the output of fdisk -l: HFS+ uses two volume headers, one 1024 into the device and the secondary 1024 from the end of the device. Per the spec, when mounting a partition the ...

By default in Arch Linux, when running gem, gems are installed per-user (into ~/.gem/ruby/), instead of system-wide (into /usr/lib/ruby/gems/). This is considered the best way to manage gems on Arch, because otherwise they might interfere with gems installed by Pacman. Gems can be installed system wide by running the gem command as root, appended with the --...

I'm 99% sure it's because you haven't called out the interpreter in the script. /etc/rc.local: #!/bin/bash IP=$(/sbin/ip route get 1 | awk '{print $NF;exit}') echo "IP: $IP" > /etc/issue exit 0 That will likely work. Many people also explicitly call out bash in their system file; I've modified your service file. I mention this below, but 4 of the ...

OK, after a bit more Googling I've found a solution to my specific use case. If I enable PDF previews in Firefox, I can now see the PDF as another tab within Firefox. A lot better. However, this doesn't really answer the main question about how to make evince open in a specific default position on the screen, so I'm not going to mark my answer as the main ...

You need to enable the ModemManager service, and you may have to restart your computer for changes to take effect. ModemManager will detect the hotspot and work with NetworkManager, and allow you to configure your hotspot's connection.
