You can prevent all users and even root user to login to system if you delete /etc/passwd file. Deadly commands that can ruin your system

By the very definition of what the root user account is, this account can do EVERYTHING & ANYTHING. It can completely destroy the system's filesystem and manipulate anything on the system. If you're going to do any experimentation such as this, you'll want to do it in a virtual machine, not on your bare metal system. Since this is a learning exercise I ...

"Cannot find the autorun program" may mean the file is not executable. If it's a CDROM, the autorun file has to have execute permissions. That requires Rock Ridge extensions to the ISO9660 file system at ISO image creation time. I'm using the following procedure (NOTE: you'll need lots of disk space). create a directory containing the files destined for ...

Sounds like you messed up your /etc/locale.gen file. If you are english/US, comment out any of the other entries in that file, UNLESS YOU NEED THEM. They are for other languages. If you are american you more then likely only need en_US.UTF8. Edit the /etc/locale.gen file and uncomment en_US.UTF8. Comment out any others, unless of course you need them ...

<Primary> is a gtk+ thing. gtk+ 2.24.7 & gtk+ 3.2.1 introduced the concept of a platform-agnostic accelerator modifier, <Primary>, which can be used instead of <Control>: a new facility is provided in Gtk+ (as of this writing it is in Git for Gtk+-2.24, and released in Gtk+-3.2.0) to use the <Primary> descriptor in place of ...

<Primary> usually means Ctrl Super (aka Windows button), but can be redefined (I have seen it mapped to CtrlShift in some places). The GNOME wiki says: The primary system modifier key should be (Super/Windows/Command key). Argh. There is some confusion here. Though the GNOME Wiki says the "primary system modifier key", this may in fact be ...

First of all, try yum-complete-transaction. It's possible that this will just finish everything up. If it doesn't, try package-cleanup from the yum-utils package. $ sudo yum install yum-utils # if you don't have it already ... $ package-cleanup --cleandupes If you're lucky, that will do it. If you're less lucky, you may need to do some manual cleanup, ...

Your system crashed before it managed to cleanup the old packages (after installing newer ones) - hence the messages. You can fix this by removing the older one. Check exactly which versions you have installed. For example, if [example] in your question is gnutls, then: yum list installed gnutls It should show: Installed Packages gnutls.x86_64 ...

The answer for me was to install ibus, ibus-anthy and anthy again, reboot and Update my Opensuse. After doing this, it worked. I hope this helps anyone who stumbles across this weird bug in the future.

As mentioned by other users, tell the shell which encoding you're using with export LANG=en_US.UTF-8 Put this in .bashrc and gnome-terminal should pick it up on the next login. Set the encoding for gnome-terminal on the fly: Menubar > Terminal > Set Character Encoding Set default encoding permanently: gconf-editor > Apps > gnome-terminal > Profiles > ...

Like an idiot, I didn't look at the dependencies for numix-themes on Arch. I didn't think themes needed other packages. To resolve the issue: # apt-get install gtk-engines-murrine and restart the shell (I rebooted).

I went to the directory /etc/X11 and took created a file default-display-manager (for some reason it was missing). Then typed /usr/bin/gdm3. After rebooting it was fine but then it started showing a black screen when I log in so I installed another display manager(KDE).

It's likely not available as a extension to that GUI. There are however several alternative tools that will give you the same/similar info both GUI and command line, such as: SysInfo, lshw, hwinfo, etc. If you want a truly GNOME experience then the system settings under the GNOME Control Center (gnome-control-center) have all that info in a single dialog. ...

You can find package providing a command by dpkg -S: From manpage: -S, --search filename-search-pattern... Search for packages that own files corresponding to the given pattern. Standard shell wildchars can be used in the pattern. This command will not list extra files created by maintainer scripts, nor ...

It is a well-known issue with Gnome >=3.10. Unfortunately there is no fix or workaround for it yet. Source: http://www.mathworks.in/matlabcentral/answers/125436-why-will-warning-error-messages-not-show-up-in-a-pop-up-window-when-i-hover-over-the-text-in-the-mat

I think Gnome is more universal, when KDE is more for desktops. Besides, I think that if we said one day 'we do a FREE DE' we should stick with it. Everyone remembers switching from OpenOffice to LibreOffice. There's been a reason for that. I think that guys from KDE teem do amazing job. But can you imagine both teems starting to collaborate and giving us a ...

Yes. Debian distributes CD, DVD, and Blu-ray images. There are various methods to download them; see https://www.debian.org/CD/. There are also vendors who sell them, in case you don't have sufficient bandwidth to download the images yourself. I believe CD1 should include an GNOME graphical desktop. There are CD1 variants for LXDE and KDE as well. DVD1 ...

On my Ubuntu system (Debian based) this import is provided by the package python3-gi. In older versions running with python version 2.7, this was provided by python-gi. You can install that with: sudo apt-get install python3-gi In principle it is possible to have such packages work with both python 2.7 and python 3.x. I have not investigated why this was ...
