comment Thunderbird: new email notification not working properly
I think that is the problem then, Thunderbird is not seeing the mail as a "New mail" rather one that has been accessed by another client already

comment Can /mnt/hgfs/'shared folder' be used as apache root?
@brainforce Could you post the contents of /etc/fstab I suspect you have a mounting option which is limiting your permissions.

comment Can /mnt/hgfs/'shared folder' be used as apache root?
could you do a test and point your apache to a local (unmounted) folder? If this works, then the issue may just be the apache user not having access to your mount. Could you also post a copy of your /etc/fstab

If it's GPL'd would you consider packaging it up for a distro :)

comment Black screen after logged in. Xubuntu 12.10
Failed to find lightdm-gtk-greeterAre you sure you have all dependencies installed? Maybe when you removed firefox you uninstalled your dependencies. Also, 14.10 is unstable, so at this version your system may break for whole new and different reasons. Try this apt-get -f install

comment Black screen after logged in. Xubuntu 12.10
Removing and re-installing firefox wouldn't do this. IT sounds like something else may have happened. By any chance do you recall what commands you typed to do this? you can check with: ctrl+alt+f1 log into text session. tail .bash_history (your history file may be named slightly differently). This info may tell us what happened. I have seem something similar where the users config file were chowned by root instead of the user.

comment sshfs will not use ~/.ssh/config (on Linux Mint 15)
Hi MBS, you can run ssh with the -v switch to show any errors which may be present. it may be worth doing this to see if there is an error while reading the file. Also, your keys on target server should have 600 permissions.

comment Limit disk buffer usage in SLES 11SP2 to allow more efficient memory overcommit on esxi host
Actual problem VM size is 32GB. I completely agree that he should reduce the RAM allocation of this WM. I think the total over commit on the host is actually about 20% which is fine. I heard there was a way of limiting this disk cache size in windows, so assumed there would be in linux also. I think real solution would be to reduce RAM allocation on VM, but apparently it may be needed by program data (not disk cache)
