This can be done. I've not been able to get bidirectional working with the following, but Host to Guest (ie paste content into the text console) does work. The following instructions are for CentOS 5/6/7, however they a similar mechanism should work for other flavours. This will keep the X11 clipboard in sync with the gpm clipboard. When the Shared ...

Downgrading samba related packages manually without apt may be able to resolve problem. Grab the deb packages from mirror (remember to choose wheezy repository ones), and install them with dpkg -i. If in doubt, search on packages.debian.org for the correct version. And remember to drop the backport repo from sources.list if it is no more needed.

Ok, I ditched Microsoft and change my household computers and laptops to Ubuntu 14.04 :) After a week long searching the internet how to get a static ip-address on Ubuntu 14.04 I finally found a way ...

Open up a Terminal and type: apt-cache rdepends packagename and replace packagename with your package you want to remove and it will list the packages that need the package you are trying to remove, remove those packages first and then try to remove the actual package.

I could not create a passwordless user, but I created one with username and password programname and in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file I added Match User testuserand ForceCommand python /path/file.py That way anyone can log in (the login info is in the web site at that server) see the program and then log out automatically when the program closes.

smbmount no longer available, so you should install cifs-utils mount -t cifs //HOSTNAME/FOLDER /mount/point -o rw -o user="username" it will ask password

You can allow passwordless logins through SSH authorization keys running ssh-keygen, which generated a public and private key. The user needs the private key to login and server needs the public key in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys You can get more info on How to set up ssh so you aren't asked for a password About the restriction, you can create a chrooted ...

To find any expired repository keys and their IDs, use apt-key as follows: apt-key list | grep expired You will get a result similar to the following: pub 4096R/BE1DB1F1 2011-03-29 [expired: 2014-03-28] The key ID is the bit after the / i.e. BE1DB1F1 in this case. To update the key, as terdon points out, run sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver ...

Try apt-get install openssh-server openssh-client. I had the same issue when I updated my system to Debian Testing. Even though SSH was already installed, in my case it wasn't pulled in for updating when I ran apt-get update && apt-get upgrade and so the system still had the same SSH binaries with the now-outdated libraries linked against it, hence ...

I'm not familiar with tint2 or wbar specifically, but in openbox there is an option (default context menu -> ObConf -> Margins ) that allows you to prevent windows from getting closer than X pixels from one or more sides of the screen, even when maximized. Does this option work for you with those two programs?

I'm afraid you can't "dump" the set of parameters with wpa_cli. But have you taken a look at the files in the folder /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections? Could prove handy, I suppose.

DNAT is most definitely what you want, yes. But what exactly is your problem? The only rule necessary is quite simple: iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p udp -i eth0 -d 1.2.3.4 --dport 27015 -j DNAT --to-destination 4.5.6.7:27015 ...where eth0 is the network interface to work on and 1.2.3.4 the destination to process. Of course, if your server has only one ...

I can't comment on your post due to my rep, but if you need to send a break with a modem, the following will work. If you're simply trying to send a break via RS-232, then it won't. If you can send AT commands to a /dev/ttyS*, then sending AT\Bn should do the trick. n can be a digit between 0 and 9, and each value represents 100 ms. So, sending AT\B4 ...

In answer to your question, setterm -blank 0 should do it. Note that this will need to be done for each login tty.

* 10:2.1.3-dmo2 0 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status It looks like you installed libavcodec55 with dpkg -i libavcodec55*.deb and not from an apt repository. From the "-dmo2" in the version number, I would say it was a package from http://www.deb-multimedia.org.

Yes, they're usually separated. It might depend on the Debian version, but here I've got /etc/php5/cli/php.ini and /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini on jessie/sid

You should use ip -r neigh, arp utility is now obsolete. See net-tools . This one support mdns name resolution by using glibc's name service switch. Therefore you need to have mdns_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] in the hosts: line of /etc/nsswitch.conf.

I'll assume that 91.121.x.x is routed across the internet to the gateway at gateway 188.165.X.254 The gateway then needs a route for 91.121.x.x to go to the VM host at 188.165.X.Y This means that any traffic trying to get to 91.121.x.x will end up at your Xen server. In the previous question, all of the interfaces were on the same network, and so ...

I had this problem on my Note 3 (Android device) with some files in a folder on the external SD card. rm produced "operation not permitted" and lsattr produced "inappropriate ioctl for device". The fix for me was to take the SD card out of the phone and put it into a PC to delete the files. Worked like a charm. I know that's not exactly a "linux" ...

The IP addresses for each of the VMs should be configured in the VM themselves, rather than the host machine. It helps to picture each of the VMs and the host with their own interfaces, however only the host has a physical cable coming out of it, so the guest VM interfaces need to be bridged to the host interface. You create the bridge in the ...

The difference between the two screenshots is that your version of Nautilus uses GTK+ 3.x for its graphical interface, while Firefox uses the file chooser from GTK+ 2.x, and these GTK versions use incompatible theme formats. Your current GTK theme doesn't support GTK3, so you're seeing the built-in default (aka "Raleigh"). Install the gnome-themes-standard ...

You're right: amd64 kfreebsd-*: Debian GNU/kFreeBSD is a general purpose operating system, an official Debian GNU distribution using the kernel of FreeBSD instead of the Linux kernel. ia64: the architecture of the Itanium family of 64-bit Intel microprocessors.

To add to bjanssen's answer, in Debian jessie the SMB share is available at /run/user/$UID/gvfs The same applies to your SFTP or WEBDAV shares.

If no device nodes appear in /dev for your storage drives that possibly means the kernel didn't recognize them. Try figuring out which modules you need to load(Google for your hardware model and support in Linux). EDIT: It would be good to post your $ dmesg output from the beginning of the installation or from the live system.

Try the following series of commands: $ sudo apt-get clean $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get upgrade $ sudo apt-get install wireshark

It appears that you have attempted installing Wireshark already, but something happened to the dependency packages during the install process. I suggest clearing the cache of dependency packages (therefore removing the broken packages), and attempting to reinstall it. I found a question on AskUbuntu that details how to do such a thing HERE. The command that ...

Have you tried running alsamixer and unmuting (M key) and pushing the volume fader up for all channels? Check the levels for every soundcard in alsamixer (F6 key) MM means the channel is muted in alsamixer.

The way you followed is the standard way, i.e. provide packages from a given version (stable, in your case) with higher priority than other repos. The Debian admin handbook states that you can revert to stable by modifying the file /etc/apt/preferences as follows: Package: * Pin: release a=stable Pin-Priority: 900 Package: * Pin: release o=Debian ...

A post on ctheroux shows how to resolve the problem. Basically, run the following as root: dpkg --fsys-tarfile /var/cache/apt/archives/apache2_2.4.7-1ubuntu4_amd64.deb | tar xOf - ./usr/sbin/a2query > /usr/sbin/a2query chmod 755 /usr/sbin/a2query

I upgraded to debian Jessie and the problem disappeared. This makes me think that it was simply that Wheezy doesn't support newer technology.

I had the same issue as you had. I had everything but the keyboard preseeded so that it would not prompt for anything during the installation. Your problem is that you actually need to add in the keyboard configuration into the append line in your menus file (may be named main depending on what you are doing). Also your keymap setting is correct. In ...

Most likely you are using the wrong driver. You should do a lspci -vnn and search for VGA display and controller, see which driver (if any) you are using. For instance, for use with Intel hardware, you should download and install the package xserver-xorg-video-intel, for which the package man page states This package also provides XvMC (XVideo ...

When running into a similar situation (though it was not a RAID10, nor was it created by an OpenMediaVault installation) I simply mdadm -add'ed the new disk to the array. This effectively made the new disk a (hot) spare disk, after which the degraded array picked it up as a means to repair the array. Besides the mdadm --add I'm not entirely sure which other ...

There's a Linux utility called testdisk that you might try. Additional info: If you want to try this on Debian the disk devices can be listed with ls /dev/sd* (or sometimes /hd*).

@kK-Storm Thank you for the link to download older version of Skype for Debian. I needed, downloaded, and installed this older version. In order to install this old package to a Debian Wheezy on an AMD64 platform, I had to follow instructions on this [link][1] to fix some dependency issues.

aptget remove lightdm should work fine, if you want to remove it. If you just want to disable it, go to /etc/rc2.d and delete the one with lightdm in its name.
