I performed a successful update through apt-get dist upgrade after changing the configuration files, but I can tell you from experience that Debian testing is essentially worthless. Enormous breakage webs, constant breakage, patches for shell shock and heartbleed level bugs take literally two weeks, half-baked configurations, and a thousand other reasons. ...

So it seems as if you can solve your problem using Florence Virtual Keyboard. As stated in its package description it "stays out of your way: it appears on the screen only when needed."

Not being familiar with Debian, I was baffled when I tried this: kearnsp@xubuntuvb:~$ dpkg -S /usr/bin/vncviewer dpkg-query: no path found matching pattern /usr/bin/vncviewer kearnsp@xubuntuvb:~$ A bit of investigation and I found the package: kearnsp@xubuntuvb:~$ ls -l /usr/bin/vncviewer lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 27 May 28 15:49 /usr/bin/vncviewer -> ...

The problem is that power saving is highly complex. Various elements make a difference. The OS itself, the hardware and the software you run. Each need to think about how power is consumed. The Linux Kernel (common across all Linux distro's) has gained some features that allow software to fine tune power use. By default, that is configured in a generic way ...

You could try installing in UEFI mode and changing the boot order using efibootmgr (--bootorder 1,3,2,... = explicitly set BootOrder (taken from man page).

On a real PC there's not a "standard" way to change the boot order from within a particular OS. If you are PXE installing things on PCs with "empty" or "non-bootable" hard disks you could solve your problem setting the BIOS boot order where the PXE option must always come after the HDD boot option. Then when you initially boot your PC the HDD is not ...

The answer is that the package is not in the main section of the repository. It is in the contrib section, which is not enabled by default. So sources.list has to be edited like so: deb http://debian.man.ac.uk/debian/ stable main contrib non-free

There is a cleanup routine. sudo apt-get clean Linux doesn't delete the files automatically to prevent needing to redownload the file if uninstalled and reinstalled. Many of these packages might simply be for dependencies. If you want files removed automatically (especially for older versions). Run sudo apt-get autoclean and sudo apt-get autoremove.

Additional trick complementary to Serhii solution. Stopping all the processes can be difficult as this thing spams network and cpu. Therefore add this line to your /etc/crontab to automatically STOP all the nasty processes (stops all processes with 10 character in the name every three minutes): */3 * * * * root pstree -ap | grep -E -- '-[a-z]{10},' | cut ...

One could make a system for autogenerating simple packages, but I have seen none. All of the Debian packages which I know about have hand-built rules files. Aside from that, most of the files in the debian subdirectory look much the same (with scriptable differences) across packages. For what it's worth, I have built 48 different packages for my own work, ...

Look... You need a minimal command at root or sudo, to add sudo group on your user. But, if root access is impossible, try to install at your user home the same program, and run locally. If you need the program doesn't shutdown after you terminal close, use & at end of command. You can download a compatible .sh or .zip directly on ventor site... I ...

You do not need to remove grub. Just use gparted live (gparted.org) and remove the boot flag from Linux partition (in case you have a separated boot partition remove the boot flag from it) and attribute the boot flag to Windows partition. Reboot the PC (it will boot in Window), install the update (the PC will need a reboot). Shutdown the PC, and reboot it ...

Dovecot is configured to listen for auth requests at private/auth: unix_listener /var/spool/postfix/private/auth However, you're telling Postfix to connect to an entirely different location: smtpd_sasl_path = smtpd – in fact, you're (almost) telling it to send the auth requests to its own SMTP daemon, which isn't going to understand them at all, much ...

At this time, in Debian, the gazebo5 package is available only in Sid (at version 5.0.1+dfsg-1). You are most likely not running Debian Sid, because Sid is extremely prone to breakage and is usually used by developers who like to live on the edge of danger. As the Debian team puts it, from the linked page: Please note that security updates for ...

See this Stack Exchange answer. The accepted answer points to this link, which explains how to use pivot_root to create a temporary in-memory root filesystem, which enables you to change, resize, replace or in any other way mess with your root filesystem without reboot.

I too had the same issue. I had imported the bootstrap file in my application.css at the top. It was causing me issues. So I placed the same import at the bottom after the comment lines in the application.css file. It worked like a charm!

I guess, the easiest route would be to install one of the packages normally (e.g. parallel) and just extract another one to the custom path: $ sudo apt-get install libio-pty-perl libipc-run-perl $ sudo apt-get download moreutils $ dpkg -x moreutils_0.54-1_amd64.deb /tmp/moreutils $ cd /tmp/moreutils/usr/bin/ $ ./zrun --help Usage: zrun <command> ...

This is definitely possible. I had done it previously on my Ubuntu. What you will need to install is qjackctl which is a user interface for controlling JACK (Jack Audio Connection Kit). You will have to look at a few tutorials on how to set up and properly use JACK and then you can use qjackctl to configure which application's output goes to which audio ...

I'm not 100% sure, but as this site points, permissions should be granted through groups. The user is effectively in the sudoers but maybe has not privileges of sudoers (kinda weird though)

initramfs is the state of loading the operating system into the RAM of the computer rather than continuing to read it from your removable media like USB or CD/DVD. It stands for "initial RAM file system", the linux Kernel mounts this area as the root file system and then launches the init process to start the rest of the fireworks.

kwin can easily create Window rules to achieve the positioning outcome without 3rd party software... in combination with a simple startup script. Sleep always helps with these things :)

Another solution was for me to extract the start-stop-daemon file located in the dpkg installation .deb archive (in the /sbin folder), and put it into the /usr/sbin folder (it was missing from it in the first place, somehow).

Would using ZFS increase performance? Hard to say without knowing your typical disk usage and how you configure your system. For example, how much RAM will you allow ZFS to use? The parity calculations between RAID-Z1 and RAID 5 would probably have similar overheads. Would it be a safer option for my data with equal parity? If you mean a mirror, then ...

Well, the version that you select depends on what architecture your processor is (x86 or x64). Generally nowadays, everything is x64 based as it allows for more RAM (>4GB, usually less). You say that you're running Windows 8 - and if that's 64-bit then your processor will be too. This is just to check, as it's quite likely it's 64 bit anyway. Head to the ...

You should select a net install with amd64 (for 64 bits processor)

In Debian 8, gnome-terminal's preferences show the expected short-cut (for me), and testing the short cut works. However, you may have fallen into the trap laid by terminator's maintainer, who hijacked the x-xterminal-emulator priority a couple of years ago. I did not observe that in Ubuntu 14.04, but it is present in Debian 8. If you are using ...

Try the Auto Reconnect feature of wvdial described in wvdial.conf. This option is "on" by default, so might just not work in your case.

FYI, this isn't VNC-related; I'm using Chrome under TigerVNC (which is better than basic TightVNC/RealVNC btw) right now; the only thing I have to live with is the lack of WebGL. I just run google-chrome and it works. Does this only occur if you're trying to run Chrome in VNC, or have you tried running Chrome on a physical X server? Possibly pastebin the ...

You can only specify where to put tray. You have no power which icon goes where (or blacklist an icon like in unity). You could specify on which monitor (or even bar) the tray have to be (as I understand correctly only on one bar the tray can show icons). There is possible race condition so I suggest to specify on which bar You want and/or don't want a ...

I did this upgrade recently (Debian Wheezy to Debian Jessie) and all i had to do was: change the /etc/apt/sources.list (replace all occurencies of "wheezy" to "jessie") run apt-get update run apt-get dist-upgrade reboot After that i had a very functional Jessie.

It seems to work for me. Adding a #!/bin/bash -x at the top to get a trace, I see this (if I enter /tmp in reply): > ./foo + dir_input + echo -n 'Enter targer directory: ' Enter targer directory: + read SRC /tmp + dir_input_check + '[' '!' -d /tmp ']' So SRC is passed as expected to dir_input_check.

Easiest way is probably to use dnsmasq Install dnsmasq $ sudo apt-get install dnsmasq and add this line to /etc/dnsmasq.conf address=/deviantart.com/127.0.0.1 This will block deviantart.com and all its subdomains. Note: For ubuntu see this post.

I've updated my system to a debian/jessie system and everything was also non-working. After playing with i8k module, I realized that i8kmon was running on scheduled intervals.

I found the problem (or at least a solution). It seems my computer is not able to deliver as much power to my GPU as its supposed to; I rewrote /sys/class/drm/card0/gt_max_freq_mhz, which is the file that sets the max frequency for my Intel GPU. It was 1300Mhz, and now with 1000Mhz everything seems stable.

Each "file system" has an available UUID. Some also have a "label." (Read 'man mount') Once you connect your USB drive, your script runs. That script could then inquire about the UUID or label of the newly connected file system. Armed with that identifier, match it with the real-work script to run for that drive. I'd suggest a table {IDENT} {COMMAND} ...

I wouldn't recommend going backwards on PHP versions but if you have no other choice then simply add a Debian snapshot to your repo and then install passing the version number.

I think Monit has everything you need Monit Link It has a nice modern web interface, you can also set-up cron style jobs to check certain services on a regular basis and if wish to do so write a script to reboot/restart them. You can also set it to send email alerts I seen that was a feature you was after. Also its free and open source :)

Depending on the level of simplicity you're after, sollutions range from logwatch to nagios. I use a combination of both. Nagios for a more detailed view of many services and servers at once, while logwatch compiles a daily summary )via e-mail) of various loggable events every day. As you're only aiming for a single machine, logwatch is probably better ...

Short answer is no, you can't convert it. You'll need to backup, destroy the mirror, create a raidz and restore the filesystems from backup. ZFS supports adding drives to pools without upsetting the original data but you cannot change the configuration (mirror, raidz, etc.) of existing drives in the pool. In your case you could (although I don't recommend ...

I would recommend you remove the nvidia drivers and retry this. Installing Nvidia drivers with optimius support is tricky. You will need bumblebee, you could still use only the nvidia card (or only the intel one) without bumbleebee. Try update-alternatives --config glx Which should let you select between the two cards. When you select the nvidia card you ...

Sounds like your ssh is having a port conflict. From searching around i found 3 commands that might be able to help. SIGHUP, SIGKILL and SIGTERM. From what the article i found on it was SIGTERM is the safest way to kill the process blocking the port. When i programmed in python, it wouldn't kill the process even when i exited the gui. so those might work ...

When you sudo, you normally get root's PATH. Your shell uses PATH to find programs. You can adjust your own PATH (adding /usr/local/sbin). See for example Add folder to PATH.

I once had it using Apache. There's a guide out there somewhere to do this. You'll need the ruby gem 'passenger' installed, and also the apache module 'passenger' (apache-mod-passenger I think).

The package you need are libdrm-intel1 for Intel drivers libdrm-nouveau2 for Nvidia drivers And check on xserver-xorg-video-nouveau and xserver-xorg-video-intel Remove all package with nvidia name And check your blacklist If you want to have support with optimus, take a look on primus package
