I would recommend doing as you said, extract the audio, use Audacity or something similar to "cuff" the audio, then use kdenlive or a similar video editor to re-add the audio. Their are multiple methods for censoring words in Audacity. - First, the method you specified, you can simply reverse the audio. - You can select the audio, mute it with Generate > ...

Stripping is supposed to be safe, all it does is remove symbols from binaries, and they are only needed for debugging. So it should be safe to strip everything. In most Linux distributions (Mint included), binaries and libraries are stripped by default, and symbols are made available separately in debug packages. A binary or library which is not stripped ...

From machine1, you can login to machine2 and execute a shell script there using SSH: ssh myusername@machine2 /home/myusername/myscript.sh

network conditions. To detect if your network conditions are good exit to shell on remote machine and hold any character key. If you see that character flow is unstable or 'hangs' you have network problems. vim does autosave and target disk if NFS or something like that. To detect Either use sar to get data from the past or run vmstat in other ssh session ...

You must also use the update-rc.d command. There is the remove option to remove it from the boot sequence. The script will remain in the init.d directory and you are still able to start and stop them with the service command.

The fix is to prepend sudo to the command. That's the way Mint works. If you don't start with sudo, it will ask you for root privileges, and the only way it can get those is to have you put in the root password. You can also run something like sudo bash once and the run all your root commands inside that shell, but I really don't recommend doing so. It's a ...

Linux VT console devices are dynamically allocated. They appear when they are opened by any process, just echo >/dev/tty63 will do that. You might be interested in utilities like openvt / deallocvt / chvt. Missing /dev/vcs7 is probably because Xorg session is using /dev/tty7 in graphics mode. Xorg uses the first unused console device found beginning ...

A workaround for the problem is to disable any action which is triggered by closing the lid. This can usually be set in the power options in your system settings interface. You also need to make sure that the display automatically dims while idle, and that the computer does not auto-suspend after a certain period of time. On modern computers (especially ...

Have a look at the routing table of the 'Physical' PC and see how traffic to these networks are routed. If that host is only 'equipped' with a default route you need to use that address to add your static routes on the guest. For example, the 'physical' host has only a static route of 145.17.1.1: route add -net 145.17.0.0/16 gw 145.17.1.1 route add -net ...

Looking at this answer http://askubuntu.com/questions/616807/cannot-install-gimp-64-bit i solved the problem changing the mirrors. Now everything works perfectly.

In the left panel, select the “Status” filter, and choose the “Installed (upgradable)” list. You can select all packages in a view by clicking the first package, scrolling to the last package and shift-clicking it. Or with the keyboard, press Home then Shift+End. Then right-click or bring up the “Package” menu and select “Unmark” or “Mark for Upgrade”. You ...

Thanks to stéphane-chazelas, one possible answer is to add --bind-interfaces. I overlooked that option from limiting myself to reading the command line help: # dnsmasq --help | grep bind-interfaces -z, --bind-interfaces Bind only to interfaces in use. I didn't have the reflex to double check with the man page. That help still is ...

You are confusing the function of echo. echo will print to the standard output file descriptor. If you already have a terminal open, that terminal is usually the standard output of the commands/scripts you run within it. By itself, echo will not open a terminal. If you want to display a message on startup, a more "graphical" way would be to use something ...

A method to skip importing would be to convert the file to a format that can be read without importing - so for instance: soffice --headless --convert-to ods --outdir /tmp tblIssues.csv soffice --view /tmp/tblIssues.ods rm /tmp/tblIssues.ods This converts the file tblIssues.csv to a ODS spreadsheet, saves it to /tmp and opens it in Libreoffice. Once it ...

Install unoconv (just once) On Ubuntu run sudo apt-get install unoconv On RHL/CentOS run sudo yum install unoconv To convert on command-line or batch-mode (non-interactively) unoconv -f pdf /pathto/file.csv /pathto/file.pdf 2>/dev/null THAT'S IT! Notes: I pipe standard error to /dev/null because I get an error that 'looks' like the conversion ...

Well, you asked if that is possible, then yes, it is, just sadly not in Cinnamon (as far as I know). But there is a KDE widget like that for KDE4. If you don't want to switch to KDE, there is still an option: a drop down terminal. I'd prefer Tilda, which is very lightweight, beautiful and customizable. You can easily install it with sudo apt-get install ...

Wine doesn't support USB yet, and it also doesn't support installing device drivers. So no, you can't use it to install Logitech drivers for Windows on Linux. On Linux systems most device drivers are already provided by the kernel, and nothing needs to be installed. If you're having trouble using your devices on Linux you can ask a new question with the ...

Since no one has come up with anything (and indeed, I can't find anything myself), I assume the answer to this question is "No, you can't do it". Thus I opened an issue on cinnamon github requesting this as a feature. Since I've had no response there either, I'm looking into implementing it myself. In examining the cinnamon code base, it looks like the ...

On reboot, it gets it's Mint back. "IIRC mintsystem & ubuntu-system-adjustments will take care of these files on the next boot anyway, filling them with the correct Mint info." Ref: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=175398
