Sources: here and here. Skype is in multilib repo. Enable it first by editing pacman.conf. In Terminal: sudo gedit /etc/pacman.conf Edit file by uncommenting below lines [multilib] Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist Then, to update sources and install Skype: sudo pacman -S skype

See man yes. Try if yes| your-pacman-command will do.

This scheme is certainly workable. You are right, the best solution is to transform your current layout as little as it is possible. If you don't ask Arch Linux to install his Grub bootloader, you'll have to run grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg in Ubuntu (if you have os-prober installed, it will find your Arch installation and update all the config ...

Personally I modified the makepkg script and it's working like a charm: # vim `which makepkg` +/clone ... 541 msg2 "$(gettext "Cloning %s %s repo...")" "${repo}" "git" 542 if ! git clone --mirror "$url" "$dir"; then 543 error "$(gettext "Failure while downloading %s %s repo")" "${repo}" "git" ... Appending "--mirror ...

One way of thinking of users are actual accounts which a person could log into on your server. But a more common view of users, which you should get used to for administration, is more like a system role. For example, if you install apache, you will see apache running as 'http' or 'apache' user. That is a legit user on your system, but noone could login ...

This should work with gdm ≥ 3.12 (tested on archlinux w. gdm 3.16.1): switch to a VT (e.g. Ctrl+Alt+F3), login as root and run: su - gdm -s /bin/sh to switch user to gdm. then run: export $(dbus-launch) and: GSETTINGS_BACKEND=dconf gsettings set org.gnome.login-screen disable-user-list true run exit or hit Ctrl+D to return to root account. restart ...

You may try to use loginctl list-sessions to get the list of sessions, and then use loginctl show-session -p Display -p Active <session ID> on each of these to get the X11 display number associated with the currently active session. Something like this (in bash): TARGET_DISPLAY=() while read id uid user seat; do while IFS='=' read property value; ...

You could use the compress tool with the --decompress option. This will recursively remove the +c (compression) flag, then copy and then the delete the original files and folders. Easiest way is probably to boot using the Arch Linux install medium (CD, USB, etc.), mount the root directory you want to decompress and run the command. An alternative solution ...

It turns out that this problem was specific to RaspberryPi, since the /dev/ttyAMA0 serial port that's linked to the hardware GPIO pins by default is initialized for virtual console access. I had to remove any reference to /dev/ttyAMA0 in /boot/cmdline.txt, reboot, and the /dev/ttyAMA0 now was with proper group permissions (read+write), however the group ...

Copy/paste between Wayland windows and XWayland windows does not work yet (it has not been implemented). I can't manage to find any official source on this, but here are a couple of links to posts saying exactly this: http://www.phoronix.com/forums/forum/software/desktop-linux/49641-gtk-3-18-plans-for-full-wayland-support-a-scenegraph?p=631866#post631866 ...

Technically this question doesn't make sense. What you want to do is offer people the possibility to connect to your computer and load webpages. For doing that you have to install for example apache as a webserver to give access to the pages. For installing Apache you need to be logged in as a user with root privileges. This user could be the new user(only ...

Well, as current I mean active Display of a XOrg Server. Remember that we can have more than one XOrg Server running and they can be multi-head, what make the things harder to manipulate. The other important note is that the DISPLAY variable in some cases cannot be accessed (eg. systemd). After some discussion in commandlinefu, I got this result: for p in ...

There are several programs for that purpose. I recommend KSnapshot, which has more options, or you can use scrot

The problem might be caused by an incomplete description of your keyboard in evdev.conf. Simplifying, all keyboards your machine is supposed to use must have an entry in a file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf (or whatever it's named these days - it varies with the OS, and with the version of X). Each entry describes, among other things, the layout of ...

While dual booting is a useful concept to allow you to use both Windows and Linux on the same machine, the benefits of dual booting Linux are more subtle. The boot process in Linux typically involves using a boot loader to load a kernel and ram disk which eventually mounts the root file system and lets you do things. Different distros have different kernels, ...

This AUR package solves the problem. It patches gnome-settings-daemon to prefer raw type backlight devices to platform ones.

@asonwryan's answer to another question provides a good solution to this problem. Hardware problems (lack of Real Time Clock) make this a bit difficult. Give the RaspberryPi's lack of a RTC, I would suggest that you ensure that you use a tool that can store the last time to disk and then references that at boot time to pull the clock out of the dawn of ...

This Configuration uses randomly generated keys at boot and will not support Hibernation to hard disk! You Should Disable Hibernation through your respectie DE Power Management Utility and set it to Shutdown on Critical to avoid Data Loss! Make sure to run sudo -s or su before running the following. Disable Swap: # swapoff -a Locate the existing Swap ...
