Same for me. On a 13" screen! Solved by growing the hidpi scaling factor to 2 (GNOME tweak cool) GNOME is OK, but still to small for some stuff: Grub Text console => mitigated by setfont sun12x22 Google chrome => need to zoom constantly Firefox idem Dell xps 13 2015 laptop with qhd screen

Linux Mint comes in two flavors. Ubuntu based Debian based (LMDE) The Ubuntu based version (the default one) is guaranteed to work with Ubuntu packages and the LMDE is guaranteed to be compatible with packages from the Debian repository. Even though most debs of Debian works in Ubuntu it still some non-compatible packages due to File system hierarchy ...

I expect library symbols will be different, even if you've got what appear to be the same versions in-place. As a half-measure, look for statically-built binaries; then you only have to worry about getting a myriad file locations all correct so the app stops complaining. In many, many cases, if not all, it's simpler to rebuild the app for the environment ...

I think that the message Java.Exploit.CVE_2013_2472 FOUND means that this installer for the Java runtime is affected with the security bug you posted the description of. If so, it's not a virus at all, just some piece of legit-but-dangerous software. I would say the message from ClamAV is a bit confusing, and the action of deleting the affected file may not ...

Since you were running a recovery software when the machine crashed. You might have corrupted your system files. Enter in a tty ^+⌥+F2. If you can not, power on your computer, and when it gives you a list of boot options, press e. Now use the arrow keys and find the bit that says rgba quiet and change it text 3 then press F10. Now it will boot into text ...

Try booting your system into single user mode. Google that it is not very hard. If it doesn't work for your current kernel, keep trying with any other kernels listed. If your server has a software problem and it cannot be booted into single user mode on any kernel, the server is really hosed and you may need to reinstall. If you can get in with single ...

First, install the User Themes Extension. Having done that, you can unpack your downloaded themes into ~/.themes (so that they end up in ~/.themes/ThemeName, with the directory gnome-shell under that). Then, they'll show up in Gnome Tweak Tool. (You may have to restart the shell, with ALT-F2, a single r in the command dialog, and <enter>.)

This is actually quite a difficult problem. One of the major difficulties is that the places where one most often wants to do this are the places where it's quite likely that one will be in the middle of installing or changing stuff. Another is that there's a subtle but very important difference between the system management toolset that is installed, the ...

From a program, you can also use the defined APIs for that. Systemd comes with libsystemd, which can check whether it can successfully connect to the running systemd instance.

The init process is always assigned PID 1. The /proc filesystem provides a way to obtain the path to an executable given a PID. In other words: nathan@nathan-desktop:~$ sudo stat /proc/1/exe File: '/proc/1/exe' -> '/sbin/upstart' As you can see, the init process on my Ubuntu 14.10 box is Upstart. Ubuntu 15.04 uses systemd, so running that command ...

On RPM-based systems, you can query the RPM database to see what package provides /sbin/init. For example: fedora:~$ rpm -qf /sbin/init systemd-216-24.fc21.x86_64 centos:~$ rpm -qf /sbin/init upstart-0.6.5-12.el6_4.1.x86_64 opensuse:~$ rpm -qf /sbin/init systemd-sysvinit-44-10.1.1.i586 If you just want the package name, and not version, you could add ...

You can poke around the system to find indicators. One way is to check for the existence of three directories: /usr/lib/systemd tells you you're on a systemd based system. /usr/share/upstart is a pretty good indicator that you're on an Upstart-based system. /etc/init.d tells you the box has SysV init in its history The thing is, these are heuristics that ...

I asked and answered a similar question on the Fedora Q&A site. It turns out that Yum stores its history in an SQLite database in /var/lib/yum/history. I was able to concoct this SQL join that shows all the manually installed packages along with their installation date and times. In my case, I was only interested in the packages I'd manually ...

If you don't mind using two different commands for the file names and content, the below commands will help you. find /sys -name "*filesystem*" The above command will find all the files/directories with "filesystem" as part of the filename/directoryname. grep -rn "filesystem" /sys/* The above command will look for all the files containing "filesystem" ...

First determine the groups the user belongs to from a terminal. groups USER In the following command type only the groups that you wan't to keep being in, administrator accounts are usually part of the wheel or sudo group, so don't type that one in. usermod -G GROUP1,GROUP2 USER The man page for usermod(8) has more information. man 8 usermod

Hawing googled a bit, I noticed that the most common answers on your question are - "yes, you can, using the .rpm file for CentOS/EL7". Following, for example this guide, you may really download package for CentOS 7 and use is. If you'd like to find any alternative way, you may follow this page and search the best one for your usecase. For example, you may ...

If it's just a package, you should be ok. It's generally not advised to install Fedora packages on CentOS because of the risk of unmet dependencies, since Fedora typically has more recent versions of libraries etc. This is less likely to be the case (but still possible) if you are installing a CentOS package on Fedora. If on the other hand it's a package to ...

Thanks to the link provided by don_crissti, I found out that I was actually wrong about the commands. the correct-commands for tracker-controll are the following # reset tracker-control -r #restart tracker-control -s But what was more interesting is tracker-stats [xxx@yyy ~]$ tracker-stats Statistiken: nao:Tag = 1 nco:Contact = 3 nfo:Audio = ...

You can use the option -i to specify to ssh which identity file it should use. Also have you checked with ssh - v what really happen? I mean the keys are really not used or are they used but doesn't match?

I've now distilled enough information to answer my own question. Here are my steps for other people to follow. Usual disclaimer: Modifying existing filesystems and their underlying devices may cause corruption and loss of a data. Plan ahead, backup your data :-) If you follow these steps, parts of the filesystem layout I started with may not be applicable ...

It's possible that somebody was trying to spoof that server. It's also possible, and in most environments more likely, that there was a misconfiguration of some kind. Maybe the DNS is misconfigured and has several IP addresses recorded for the same host name. Maybe two machines were competing for the same IP address. Maybe the SSH server on the target ...

According to vagrant's documentation, the default provider should be virtualbox, and the VAGRANT_DEFAULT_PROVIDER variable lets you override it. However, VAGRANT_DEFAULT_PROVIDER is empty, so it should be virtualbox, right? Well, if I set the variable to virtualbox, it works again. So I guess fedora sets the default variable somewhere else. Solution: $ ...

Looks like I have had some success.

This worked for me on Fedora 21 (x64): rpm -Uvh iscan-2.30.1-1.usb0.1.ltdl3.x86_64.rpm --nodeps ln -s /usr/lib64/libltdl.so.7 /usr/lib64/libltdl.so.3 iscan seems to work fine with the newer library

The first time you logged into the server, it didn't have a key value associated with it's hostname in your ~/.ssh/known_hosts. When you accepted its identity, you added the key. Subsequent log ins referenced that key value so its identity was verified and you got no message. When you logged in from a different system, one that had accessed this server ...

Convert the image using Imagemagick's convert and pipe the result to feh to diplay it as background, which also works for transparent terminals: convert "$file" -resize 1600x1200 png:- | feh --bg-center - Of course convert can do almost anything to your image. Much more than any background setter ever will.

make itself has likely not much to do with the problem. The symptoms are typical of using wrong toolchain and/or libraries. The output indicates that the linker in use is the stock Fedora ld, which on 64bit Fedora would mean a toolchain capable of producing x86_64 binaries. skipping incompatible /usr/lib/libc.a tells you, that the linker tried linking ...

So, the core problem there is that it's looking for the kernel header files needed to compile new kernel modules. You can install those with sudo yum install kernel-devel But the further trick is that the compile process is looking for kernel devel files which match your running kernel. You can run uname -r to find the currently-running kernel, and rpm -q ...

The basic problem was you do not have kernel headers installed. If you do sudo yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers and boot into the new installed kernel. Then your driver make will be able to find your kernel headers in /lib/modules/{uname -r}/build

Live-USB apparently mounts your filesystems automatically. To repair them you will have to unmount them before using e2fsck. And since you have LVM, your file systems will be listed as linked files in the directory /dev/mapper, so don't try to umount or use e2fsck on /dev/sda2 for example but rather on /dev/mapper/whatever (like ...

You could try rebuilding the rpmdb rpmdb --rebuilddb This fixed a similar problem for me.

First, i tried strace parent processes like systemd and Xorg.bin, but i'm new to strace so i can't figure out. Then i thought it might related to permission issue (su -, sudo, ...etc).

You can write a search provider — see this documentation. But that won't change the application search. The default search is built-in, and it orders applications by frequency, which, from this source file, we can see is stored in ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/application_state. From the source, the algorithm is: /* The ranking algorithm we use is: every time ...

This won't work with Alt-F2 — don_crissti's comment covers that — but you can actually just hit the Windows key to bring up the overview and start typing c a l c ... and hit enter when the calculator is the top result. For me, that's actually after just c a . (It'll depend on what you have installed, and I think how often you use various apps.) You can also ...

I would use lvmcache(7) which utilizes dm-cache. Nice writeup here on doing so: https://rwmj.wordpress.com/2014/05/22/using-lvms-new-cache-feature/ This, according to the author, requires the use of a single volume group. Thus you'll need to merge your volume groups. See following link which uses vgmerge(8) to do so: ...

To create an alias, in most shells you would run the alias command. Example: $ alias calc='gnome-calulator' To make this permament across login sessions, put this in your shell startup files - for the bash shell, that would be with .bash_profile or .bashrc in your home directory. This will let you create any alias for any command, but you should be ...

I think you have to add: my $q = CGI->new(); my $username = $q->param('username'); ...
