I am a linux newby newb, so not sure if this is the definitive answer, however looking at the permissions of /var/www/html showed me that only user root had Read Write Execute permissions. As I was using the browser just as a standard user and not getting access, I assumed that 'Other' needed some permissions, so I did this: sudo chmod 755 html -R And ...

I didn't want to disable Intel(R) Smart response Technology as it does offer performance improvement. Changing the BIOS to get rid of the raid setup would have done just this. The bulk of my resolution came from this Super User answer here. how-do-i-install-windows-7-with-intel-rst-and-linux-to-dual-boot-on-a-dell-xps Mine differed in a few ways though - ...

here is a hack I use to make it work. add the folowing to your .bashrc file. # hack to launch bicon if not launched if ! [[ "$(ps -p $(ps -p $(echo $$) -o ppid=) -o comm=)" =~ 'bicon'* ]]; then bicon.bin fi this should also work for new tab. strange behavior happens when you try to open bash inside bash, don't do that.

In order to dual boot windows and linux you must install Windows first. Its something about Windows not wanting to play nice with other OS's, I don't exactly know why. Once you have Windows 7 installed try installing linux normally, but when you get to partitions you will want to designate a section of your hard drive to Linux only. There are plenty of ...

In Mate you can set additional timezones. Go to Clock Preferences -> Locations -> Add. Once finished, click the clock to change the current timezone.

Zorin is made specifically for your scenario. On an older machine you'll probably want their lightweight variant. But have you considered Lubuntu or Xubuntu? Both of these are based on Ubuntu so you'll feel more at home with how they work. Personally, I like XFCE for older machines, which is what Xubuntu uses. But a lot of people recommend LXDE, which is ...

I had the same problem and fixed it complete - without overriding anything! The problem is not in /etc/environment or /etc/default/locale or any other system partition / directory. It lies in the KDE settings. I used a "grep -r "language=en" in my home directory after I searched every other linux configuration file on my system with the same method and all ...

The question here is where exactly you want to install linux mint. The only drive you can use to do that is your current C: drive. The problem is, that all of the space on it is currently being used by windows. What you need to do, is shrink that partition from within windows (No problem since currently 79% of it are not used) and once that space is freed ...

I had the same problem, and I found a page in portuguese that explains a workaround. Before running the Intel Installer change your /etc/lsb-release and input those contents: DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu DISTRIB_RELEASE=14.04 DISTRIB_CODENAME=trusty DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Linux Mint 17 Qiana" Install the drivers and revert the changes on the file. After a reboot: $ ...

everything you install in wine is installed in the .wine folder in your home folder, so changing the permission of this folder and making a symlink from the second user's .wine folder to the shared .wine folder should do the trick. try this code, let me know if it works, I didn't test it myself yet and it could be it needs some adjusting. chown -R ...
