In the terminal type mate-screensaver-preferences &, or from the Control Panel, select Screensaver - then deselect Lock screen when screensaver is active. You can find timeout settings there, too.

You can compare the backup with the current contents of the system using restore: restore -C -f backup where backup is the file containing your backup. You can also list the contents of a backup: restore -t -f backup

The command you give, dump -0f /dev/sdc1 /dev/sda2 will back up the contents of /dev/sda2, overwriting all the first partition of your USB key (which won't mean much to standard disk tools then). If you want to generate a backup file on your USB key instead, you need to mount the key and tell dump to dump to a file on the key: dump -0f /media/usb/backup ...

I think you just missed the ifconfig command a bit. It shouldn't be enter it should be ether as in ethernet. Also you are missing the interface. Try something like: sudo ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:E0:4C:1A:6B:3F Change the eth0 to match whatever interface name you are trying to change.

For popular software you will usually find other users who provide ready to use packages for your distro. Example: https://launchpad.net/~thomas-schiex/+archive/ubuntu/blender Anything you install should go through the package manager in any case, so you can keep track & get rid of its files in the future. If you just unpack a binary tarball somewhere ...

What it follows is just a collection of some references and hints too wide to be written in a comment. Your problem seems to be similar to an old Ubuntu bug. Following the proven philosophy of restart and hope the problem disappear by itself you find one of the workaround proposed (the #3). :-) Note: the workaround #1 was killall gnome-panel the ...

If you aren't able to drag the handle of the notification area towards the right side, perhaps it's because is locked. Right-click on it and see if the "Locked" option (or whatever similar) is ticked.

The short answer is uninstall from the package sudo apt-get remove bpython and install via pip: sudo pip install bpython. I think what's going on is that the bpython package assumes python 2.7 in /usr/bin/python, but from the traceback, your /usr/bin/python seems to be python3. To verify try running /usr/bin/python -V to see the version and compare with ...

Doesn't matter really. By the time your done customizing and tweaking the one u choose the only time you'll remember which one you installed is when you do package updates. Ubuntu has a larger repository and has the Unity desktop environment. That's just about it. If the only thing you are concerned about is customizing then it really doesn't matter. And ...

You need to tell grub what default kernel to use in grub.conf. For mint, may be something like 'set default="0". For the linux types I have used, the very top entry in the grub.conf is entry 0. So if you had three kernels listed, and you want to boot on the 3rd one, use 'default=2' or for mint, maybe 'set default=2'. This link may or may not be useful: ...

I am using Cinnamon on Linux Mint 17.1. In my Gnome Terminal this works Ctrl+Shift+U then A, E, Space. (Enter works as well) to get the Registered symbol ® ( <- and firefox works as well), for which the unicode hex value is AE. I don't recall ever enabling this, so it looks like there is something missing on your setup.

I did try to use the live CD and realized then what the problem was. For some reason when I try to boot using the live CD it never actually boots. When the Grub loader starts the computer goes into an infinite reboot loop. I had to change the boot parameters (way back when) to 'mem=3000M' and that is why it only recognized 3gb. I've since changed (grub.cfg) ...

Usually this means that rvm is not setup correctly. The usual mistake is that you didn't modify your bashrc correctly (or simular) or you did not reload your terminal. You should not set GEM_HOME or GEM_PATH manually when using rvm. You can try ´source ~/.rvm/scripts/rvm´ and see if that works. It could also be that you have not built a gemset yet. Do ...

Sounds like you want the command export for setting environment variables: export PATH=$PATH':/path/to/add' export GEM_HOME=$HOME/.gem export GEM_PATH=$HOME/.gem That will only take effect for the current session, though. To make them more permanent, add those lines to your ~/.bashrc.

In Cinnamon 2.6.2 you can have additional panels in any monitor without installing additional software. Just right-click the panel, click on Modify panel ... and then on Add panel. The top and bottom edges of all monitors should get highlighted and a new panel will be set up where you click. It works perfectly. Here is a github post from when it was merged. ...
