There are a couple of bug reports about this problem. Issue 465660: Cursor functionality broken in Ubuntu 14.04 since 41 is perhaps the most promising. Its last entry says : version 43 works fine, just install google-chrome-unstable Issue 357347: Mouse cursor stopped turning into a pointer while hovering over links has several workarounds that may not ...

Pretty much all you need to know is directly on the chromebook homepage. As for APK's it seems they are not supported, as for ubuntu, it most likely will but the version depends on if you bought an ARM or INTEL based chromebook. Chromebooks are basically a chromebrowser, that is it, nothing else, hence the name. So if you can make due with just chrome, then ...

I think you see different attributes: the executable one x, probably now you have -rwxrw-r--. To be sure try from your guest system ls -l yourfile and you will see which attribute your file is seen. If it is a problem of executable attribute set (x) with chmod u-x you can fix the problem. Look at the answer of Brian to fix the problem with that reading ...

This happens to me all the time, usually when I pscp a text file generated on Windows over to my Linux server. Hastur is right, in the comments, and Joe Sewell in his answer, too: it's just the 'executable' permissions flag is set. My solution is: chmod u-x,go+r filename This makes it not-executable for my user, and readable for 'group' and for 'others'. ...

If you've got LS_COLORS set up with default values (or at least the defaults I've seen in RHEL), the green color of the filename doesn't mean it's binary, only that one or more executable bits are set. ls -l should give you the information you need to confirm this. Remember that, in Linux, shell scripts are text files that must be executable in order to work ...

Check for updates and install the 'wpa' update. You may have to modify your update preferences to allow "Safe updates. Not tested but believed to be safe." This is the case on Linux Mint, which is based on Ubuntu, anyway.

Can't you just use the hangouts feature of selecting part of the screen and then limiting it to Guake? Either that or using "Terminal" or an IDE to show off programming?

if your host is a linux box you can set up your own NAT for the host-only vmware echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 172.16.60.150 -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE where 172.16.60.150 is the IP of your vmware image and eth0 is the interface with access to Internet

The original mouse protocol only allows columns up to 223. There are three(!) different, competing extensions that overcome this limit. In chronological order, and in increasing order of preference (that is, each one is better than the previous): xterm 1005 urxvt 1015 xterm 1006 It's a total chaos which ones certain terminals, app, and multiplexers ...

In your odbc.ini file, try changing this line: Driver = /usr/local/nz/lib64/libnzodbc.so to this: Driver = NetezzaSQL and see if that helps.

One of the most portable ways, if everyone in your organization is using Linux, is to use OpenSSL to encrypt the file. You can encrypt a file with: openssl aes-256-cbc -a -salt -in passwords.txt -out passwords.txt.enc And decrypt it with: openssl aes-256-cbc -d -a -in passwords.txt.enc -out passwords.txt Of course you would write a wrapper script for ...

Try using the preinstalled command sha256sum. It's usually in /usr/bin/, but you can find its location using which: $ which sha256sum /usr/bin/sha256sum There is also a package hashalot for Precise which installs the sha256 command to /sbin (see here). You can install it using: $ sudo apt-get install hashalot

There is a FUSE driver for Amazon Cloud Drive which exists but the results of using it are (so far) inconsistent. The driver is based on some earlier work done to allow using the Amazon Cloud Drive from python. However, it appears the REST API for Amazon Cloud Drive has changed since the earlier work was done. My results using it have been spotty. I ...

I have just attempted to resolve a similar problem. My issue was that I had spotty wireless using a RTL8192EE wireless card on a fresh install of ubuntu 14.04.

I don't know if this issue has been resolved, but I thought I'd just say it because it seems no one has yet. I was having this exact problem until I found a solution browsing the web.

This seems to be a bug of apt. Version 1.0.1 is affected. We've built version 1.0.9.2 from source, and it behaves as expected: reports unmet dependencies and exits with non-zero status. Perhaps this is the same bug: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=745046

The only simple way is to bridge both Ethernet interfaces (basically having your computer act as a switch). Then you will have only one route over the br0 bridge, and it'll use the learned MAC addresses to decide which Ethernet port to use for each host. If you want to keep the interfaces separate, there really aren't any good solutions. IPv6 makes this ...

Using bash should result in reading ~/.bashrc. The following might help with ksh and sh (bash in sh mode), or when your ~/.bashrc is not executed during login. The sshd consults ~/.ssh/environment (check sshd_config(5) for permissions) and ~/.ssh/sshrc or ~/.ssh/rc. This gives the possibility to setup ENV=~/.profile or BASH_ENV=~/.profile and SSH_LOGIN=Y ...

Normally, you would want Windows installed first and then Linux. This is the common scenario, because (almost) every PC comes with Windows preinstalled. It is also the recommended approach if you start out fresh with a clean disk, because it avoids screwing up the Windows boot manager. That's simply because Linux boot manager is intelligent enough and ...

I had to do this too. The way I got around it was creating a symbolic link named Program Files2 through Windows. Switching to Ubuntu, you can delete the Program Files folder and rename the link, removing the 2. This should work for any type of link. Before attempting this, make sure you have a back up, or some way to revert to the old set up. With the copy ...

The only way I know to do this is to go ahead and install Windows 7 and then use the Ubuntu disk to fix the dual boot. You can set up windows 7 to be the boot manager, but I found it easier to just let Ubuntu handle it. Let me know if you need more detail.

I managed to fix this. My tcpdump on the server was showing icmp echo requests, but no reply. I found a related post here. Enabling martian source logging like this: echo 1 >/proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/eth2/log_martians and then sysctl net.ipv4.conf.all.rp_filter=2 Fixed it. I'm surprised this doesn't come up more often.

Changing password of user2 fixed the issue. Now I am not sure if it has something to do with encoding or escaping of the password inside of WinSCP or any other weird problem.

First, confirm that skip-networking is commented out in your my.cnf. You will also need to allow remote connections from your IP to your database. GRANT ALL ON yourdatabase.* TO mysqluser@'yourip' IDENTIFIED BY 'yourpassword'; Lastly, confirm that your firewall is not blocking the connection.

The latter prompt that you have seen is the default on Red Hat-based systems, such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, and Fedora.

What you're after is the bash PS1 variable. To get what you want, you need to export this variable from .bashrc, which is executed on login.

That’s pretty easy. Just look at man 1 bash: Whereas the default prompt uses \w (“the current working directory, with $HOME abbreviated with a tilde (uses the value of the PROMPT_DIRTRIM variable)”), there’s also \W: “the basename of the current working directory, with $HOME abbreviated with a tilde” To get what you want, use this: export PS1="[\u@\h \W]$ ...

I ran in to the same issue with Ubuntu 14.04.1 running on a Dell m3800 connected to a U2713HM monitor. Installing Infinality to get better font rendering makes this issue go away. This is of course not a fix for the issue but just a workaround. Hopefully this works for Xubuntu 14.04 also.
