I also had problem with battery threshold after following the instruction for installing TLP. My ThinkPad X200T is running Xubuntu 14.04. To solve the problem I searched the solution in this website https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/tp-smapi#Inkompatible-Hardware and then i did these steps: copy this in terminal to open mousepad as root: sudo mousepad ...

just rm -r .eclipse on your home directory. Maybe it is caused by the wrong configurations of eclipse.

AFAIK it is not possible out of the box since you would have to use an additional file to store that information. What I did instead is setting the org-startup-folded variable to nil so to start unfolded, which I think is a better default. See C-h v org-startup-folded.

Reading sakis3g logs and source I notice that using nocrtscts on ppp options with this PL2303 USB Serial converter is mandatory. Also, the SIM800L doesn't support AT+FCLASS command and makes the chat script fail so I had to removed it. Using the chat script from 3G and GPRS modems with pppd I changed the line: 'OK' 'ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 ...

You should change your VirtualBox host key to not conflict with your workspace switching keys. You can do this by opening the VirtualBox Preference window, select "Input" and change the host key. (Reference: http://helpdeskgeek.com/virtualization/change-the-host-key-in-virtualbox/)

First, I'd like to be very clear on an important distinction: Partitions are simply pointers to where partitions begin and end. On modern disks, these start and end points are expressed as sector values. Filesystems are complex data structures that reside within partitions (or other containers). Typically, filesystems are defined relative to the start ...

I found a feature in my BIOS settings under "security" which supposedly protects the computer from memory overflow errors.. However, I tried to disable this feature and now I don't seem to get any strange errors anymore and furthermore does the virtual machine run much much much faster.. In my attempts to solve the problem, I also tried upgrading ...

Both of your /etc/network/interfaces files contain one and the same error: the default gateway is specified twice. You can have multiple default gateways, only under a very specific circumstance (neglecting metrics): that you have several routing tables, each specified in the file /etc/iproute2/rt_tables, but each routing table shall have a single default ...

That check will just try to ping localhost. Does that work? If not, it could be due to many things: your firewall may block it, or you may have disabled your configuration for localhost.

Last 2 weeks I have searched many forums and i haven't found the answer for the question: How to get all command output to Putty title?

First make sure that those keybindings are not captured by your desktop environment. Look into xfce4-keyboard-settings and xfwm4-settings for a list of shortcuts.

What you need is APT Pinning. You should set the priority of Jessie packages low enough that they won't be auto-installed, e.g. Package: * Pin: release n=jessie Pin-Priority: 50 See the apt_preferences man page.

you don't need a live cd to solve this, since most people are afraid of the grub command line, i will post this : grub> ls ( here you should see a list of devices/partitions ) now we must find the partition that contains /boot grub> ls (hd0,gpt1)/ # you may see msdos instead of gpt and the slash is necessary if this is the right partition we should see : ...

The main difference between Squeeze and Jessie is that ip command calls ifconfig for the first and iproute2 for the last. ifconfig doesn't known multiple gateway configurations, at least without metrics. That's why you see differences between the two ip route commands (or route -n (deprecated)) iproute2 can track multiple routing tables ip route show all ...

If you haven't changed anything in the default configuration, the font configuration files in /etc/fonts/conf.d/ don't contain references to Consolas, so your setting is used for that one. However, they do already contain entries for Courier, aliasing them to Nimbus Mono L. So by the time your fonts.conf is parsed, Courier already has been processed and ...

These services are no longer packaged in Debian Jessie, nor maintained by MIT Kerberos developers, nor in any way recommended to be used. Heimdal has recently removed their versions as well. (The kerberized telnetd, for example, only supported DES.) (That said, you can still find the MIT services' source code at https://github.com/krb5/krb5-appl.) I ...

From the looks of the documentation, the procedure is pretty straight forward. But it is not done through iptables on the VPC itself. That will come in to play after you've gotten traffic to the VPC itself. Log in to your vms.me account, not the VPS. In that interface there should be a My Servers tab. Go there. Choose IPv4 mapping. Select the external port ...

Original WPA used TKIP. WPA2 uses AES-CCMP. If your network uses WPA2, you should be specifying AES, not TKIP.

Apparently, the reason the screen goes blank is that, despite my BIOS settings, the DVI port is still activated and, for some reasons, the kernel switch to it during boot. So, the signal is lost on VGA port. I bought a DVI-HDMI adapter and I'm using a HDMI monitor to interact with the server.

The problem is running a binary for a different processor architecture. You can use objdump (from binutils) to check architecture of binaries. You can use uname to check architecture of a machine. e.g. I encountered this error "cannot execute binary file" when installing FF.Communicator - a firefox plugin for chrome (so I can run pages that use java ...

The file that you are looking for is probably in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf or similar. You can create the Directory tags yourself in /etc/httpd.conf, /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf, or in a new file placed in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/example.conf Below is what you need to include in one of the files mentioned above: ...

I use DAViCal for that, plus the excellent (but not free) CalDAV-Sync app (which you can find here in the play store). There are also loads of desktop applications that support CalDAV; E.g., Thunderbird's calendar extension, Apple's Calendar.app, and KDE's korganizer, to name but a few. There are also other server side applications to do caldav, you don't ...

Long story short... you need to write your own init.d script to run on run-levels 0(halt) and/or 6(reboot) and perhaps run-level 1 (single-user-mode, typical for recovery situations). For example, in /etc/init.d/virtualbox, create something like this: #!/bin/sh ### BEGIN INIT INFO # Provides: virtualbox_start_and_stop # Required-Start: ...

As the comments suggest, the usual way is to replace your iceweasel:amd64 package with the iceweasel:i386 package and let the dependencies work through. This is fine if all the dependent libraries are correctly multiarch compatible, but in cases where this doesn't work, a chroot install may be the best option. To set up such a chroot the Debian way: ...

acpid: This provides access to the ACPI system. It's used mostly to react to events such as the power button being pressed or a laptop going from wall power to battery power.

Debian 8 (jessie) stores Grub 2 password parameters within the directory /etc/grub.d/ . Inside this directory there are only scripts used to generate the configuration file. So you can create a new script (e.g. /etc/grub.d/01_users ) with the following content: #!/bin/bash cat <<EOF set superusers="putyourusernamehere" password putyourusernamehere ...

Another solution would be to run the desired software using padsp, which is an OSS wrapper for Pulse Audio. Simply run: padsp festival Note that it will use the default audio devices which you can change with your system's audio settings utility.

I think you are almost correct. I used your instructions to setup automatic unlock of LUKS partitions here, but not /. ;-) What seems wrong to me, is the UUID you use. You seems to confuse the UUID with the setup of the keyfile on USB. the UUID points to the uuid of the LUKS partition you want to unlock. So you don't want to change it from the line above, ...

You could also add your script to cron and schedule it to be launched on each reboot. To do this, open the file in an editor: nano /etc/crontab Then add the following line to the end. @reboot root /path/to/script.sh Afterwards just reboot and it should work.

I have some comment and thanks for that HELP.I have wasted many a coaster with k3B.It DOES support BDROM sized images but apparently uses the SPARE area even though it "forces LUKE" a lot with its burn options.

The answer given by MariusMatutiae wasn't quite the one I was expecting, but I did take a look at some of the kernel build scripts and have found a workable solution.

There are 2 guessable reasons: Compatibility problems with graphics driver used by installer - when installer tries to find out possible desktop resolutions and hangs. To avoid that, just install in Text Mode. Broken DVD image, DVD disk, DVD-RW or hard disk. Try to install from another DVD, recorded on different computer.

You need to set as follows the following .config symbols: CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER=n CONFIG_KGDB=n CONFIG_KGDB_SERIAL_CONSOLE=n You should also make sure that CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA is not set by commenting it out, # CONFIG_DEBUG_RODATA All of the info to compile the Linux kernel can be found, quite authoritatively, on the Linux Kernel home page.

From the ever-helpful Arch Linux Wiki: By default 5% of a filesystem will be flagged as reserved for root user to avoid fragmentation. You have a disk of 917 GB, 95% of it (i.e., after subtracting the quota used to avoid fragmentation) is 871 GB, which corresponds exactly to the sum of free and unoccupied space that you see with the df -h command. ...

If it is reliant on the x-server, then you could add it to $HOME/.xinitrc. (I think this is the correct answer) If it can run without a graphical user interface then put it in the login script ($HOME/.zlogin for zsh). By "it" I mean: bash /path/to/script #This should be the same as using the following: #sh /path/to/script #if it uses ...

When I used Ubuntu I believe it used lele-laptop. There's a debian package called laptop-detect. It's yes/no test which is then used for extra setup for laptops.

The Debian and Ubuntu installers both get their hostname through DHCP, as most DHCP servers provide this along with the lease.

As per the Debian installation documentation at ...

I'm coming a bit late to this party, but had the same problem yesterday. If the filesystem does not support symlinks and you despite want all the contents from the archive to be accessible, it might be a workaround to copy those files (which should be symlinked).
