It appears that I was connecting to a different ftp server all along (probably the stock sftp server?). I made vsftpd run on a different port and now it works fine (does chroot users)

The window manager knows absolutely nothing about scrollbars. They are drawn by the widget toolkit that each program uses – in GNOME it's mostly GTK+, in KDE it's mostly Qt. Thus scrollbar behavior in GNOME (Cinnamon) programs would be a GTK+ option. In GTK+ 3, you can scroll page-by-page by either holding Shift while clicking the scrollbar, or by pressing ...

That's the notification area. You cannot disable it. You could, however, upgrade to GNOME 3.20 in Debian 'testing' (unfortunately it's not backported to jessie). The notification area has been moved to a different design a few releases ago.

Add this to your .xinitrc file or .xsession to load up during startup: xrandr --output Virtual-0 --mode 1440x900 Note, Virtual-0 is the Display name. To get the name of the Display on your system, just type xrandr in a terminal while the x-server is running.

This is simply a bug in the dependencies of the debian python packaging. The virtualenv package for python2 should by no means be dependent on python3. A workaround here is to install virtualenv with pip: pip install virtualenv To get pip just do "apt-get install python-pip".

I assume that the reason for the error is that the user exists in the old file system, but not the new one that you have changed to with chroot. If I knew exactly where all the user details are held, I could advise on which files and directories from the old file system should be copied / linked / mounted into the new, in order that the old users can log ...

For any OS you need to make sure all needed packages are installed. In my case on Debian I was missing packages dkms and linux-headers-generic. #apt-get install dkms build-essential linux-headers-generic linux-headers-$(uname -r) For full instructions see this VirtualBox forum post.

It is likely that the root user on your system is set up with a different default $PATH compared to that of non-root users. The default paths are specified in /etc/profile, /etc/login.defs, /etc/login.conf or some other file either read by the shell, or by the login command. It differs from system to system. The ufw command might, for example, live in /usr/...

The log you displayed is not extremely helpful: it is not clear whether SOMEIP is always the same or not, or whether SOMEDATETIMEs are different by much, or they all occur in one burst, or they are clustered around some small number of time intervals. At any rate, they are basically attempts to contact your Web Server, which you are not running, hence the ...

So as I understand it, you did the same procedure as you did with Debian and Elementary, but with Kali it didn't work? In that case, I'd imagine it's because of the way you've copied the ISO to your USB drive, you might have to do it differently for Kali. I'd try gnome-disks if I were you, it's always worked for me.

For me it was the combination of sudo and tmux that stopped it detecting the SSH session. (It also affects screen the same way - this is a known issue listed in man molly-guard.) I solved it by adding this to the sudoers config file (using the visudo command): Defaults env_keep += SSH_CONNECTION

Ok, that is weird. I found this topic, where somebody had a problem when a certificate was not imported. I checked it and it was my case as well. The certificate disappeared from my chrome.

I got that out of space error too. What worked was to unplug one of the cameras and plug it into another USB port on my stationary PC - there are some 6 or 7 USB ports scattered about it. Running 'show_webcams 0 1' then suddenly brought up the two images.

There are a few things that I think could be causing you issues: You state that PC1 is using PC2 as its default gateway, however the routing table from PC1 infact shows 10.0.0.139 as the default gateway, rather than the eth0 interface of PC2 10.0.0.140 If PC2 is responsible for routing traffic from PC1, have you turned on IP forwarding on PC2? I do not ...

Well, They are filters that block specific types of (D)DOS attacks, so yes. They are by no means a panacea however, as there are many ways to DOS/DDOS a server, at the IP layer or higher.

The default path for cron is: PATH=/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:.

A default gateway is the router that you sent packets to when you don't have any other router to sent them to. There should only ever be one default gateway. After you reboot, you can see that the default gateway has been set to 192.168.178.1 which can be reached out of the eth0 interface. I'm not sure whether you statically assigned IP details to eth0 or ...

I know this isn't exactly the answer you want, but BitMask, based on OpenVPN and part of the LEAP Encryption Project, handles all of this and adds more security besides. The providers are listed here. They include RiseUp and Calyx. If you're really worried about security, that's what I'd go with.

This is known problem with planned fix for openssh-7.3 (draft standard). Before that will be fixed in your distro, there is workaround to run manually (or in some of your login scripts): stty iutf8 which will set your tty flags to utf8, as your local shell.

This was an off-the-wall problem that made no sense, other than something being corrupted. Apt has some built-in cleanup tools, which I tried: apt-get check This command is a diagnostic tool.

No need for this any more. Debian stable started shipping Firefox instead of iceweasel today. Debian will ship the Extended Support Release (ESR) of Firefox, which is roughly updated every 9 months. If you always need the latest version the others answers may stil be an option for you. For more infomarmation see the debian bug report

You can try the following: Run sudo alsamixer in a terminal, press F6 and select your headset. If you have selected it, check that the volume bar does not have "MM" on it. If it does, it's muted. Use the 'M' key to unmute it.

Ok, in this case, it seems something was wrong during installation. I've done sudo apt-get remove ansible then pip install ansible and now the command above runs successfully!

Depends on what Linux distro you are using. Typically, you can force reinstall a package, and hence, get back all its files. For example, in a Debian based system, like Ubuntu, you'll see: dpkg -S /bin/ls "ls" belongs to "coreutils". Therefore, force reinstall the package: sudo apt-get --reinstall install coreutils And, your accident will be fixed!

The error means that vboxdrv/vboxadd can't find your kernel sources. The script expects that /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build folder points to /usr/src/kernels/$(uname -r) which should have the Makefile where it can execute kernelrelease task, so it can compare against your current installed kernel version (uname -r). So if this command fails: make -C /usr/...

I have the same setup in Arch linux. Enlightenment 0.21 and NM. To make it work, you need to build NetworkManager from git, since the appindicator support has not been released yet, but it's in the master branch. You need to compile with --with-appindicator flag, and then run nm-apple --indicator. You could also try running nm-applet with the --indicator ...

You might want to try a more recent connection method: AT^NDISDUP=1,1,"internet.t-mobile" Then use a DHCP client on your enp0s20f0u5c2 interface that you see. If you are connected, then AT^DHCP? should also yield an answer with your IP in hexadecimal notation.

I'm not directly familiar with TeXworks and having had a quick look at it, I couldn't see an obvious way of automatically compiling your work.

On linux I use ...

You can't count on IPv4 being available everywhere all the time anymore. IPv4 addresses have run out and buying addresses on the market is expensive. More and more networks use technologies like NAT64 to give their users only IPv6 and provide central NAT services to be able to reach services that are only reachable over IPv4. That means that the device doesn'...

Since you have not mentioned it: Adobe PDF Reader seems your way to go. Not sure how you could have missed that. You can Zoom up to 6400%. I think that would be all you need.
