SysAdmin on large Unix machines (HP-UX, AIX, Linux, and lately solaris). I mainly work on Performance analisys and Tuning for problems related to Infor ERP LN and database (manily oracle). I also design applications and program them, currently in Java. I am absolutely unhappy with Java and I will start my next work probably in Python or Django.

comment gs can't find the proper font
I read once again all your output, and now I think that there is no error there: the font substitution are required by your Fontmap.GS file, and the Arial fonts, once it is not found internally by gs, it is found querying the operating system. So, just to be sure: could you please better explain what the error is supposed to be?

comment gs can't find the proper font
gs open a file called fontmap. This is normally present in your gs library directory (search it with find). This file contains complete font names and their definition file. Some information on how to add fonts to gs is available at linux.about.com/library/howto/font/blfont5.htm

Do you have these fonts installed? Are Times New Roman and Times New Roman,Bold available on the system?

comment Why sudo won't remember my password?
I am working daily on the same system you described. A few days ago was thinking that sudo was acting differently the on previous Debian version, but then I realized that I was using sudo on many different xterms. Are you having the problem when running two next commands in the same terminal window?

comment Unable to remove the files from an usb drive (neither by dd /dev/zero nor by rm -r)
@AvinashRaj the file system cannot be mounted in read/write since its type is iso9660. This file system is always in read only.

This cannot work: iso9660 is a read-only file system type.

comment bash howto script - if no answer or mutliline answer
Is it a question about words or lines? If you get a line with many word in bar, is it accepted?

@StephaneChazelas right, so you will have a counter of words, while I think the question is about a counter of lines.

And, I think this is not working for multiline texts. This is working for a single line with many words; is this the requested behaviour?

comment GNU `tar` runs `stat` on an excluded directory. Is it normal?
@Elena Try also adding option --anchored. Than would match the initial part of the path name even without slash.

comment Directory “not found” on HP-UX for NFS mount point
Thanks for the hint. Permissions for underlying directory are ok. I also discovered, while umounting and mounting it back, that the share is not NFS but CIFS. the mount command display it as NFS, still.

comment How to get name of Display Manager on Linux?
@Marco it should contain the desktop name choosen by the user at login time. If the content is default, then I think, it gets the first one in /usr/share/xsessions.

comment How do I configure my tty session such that a form feed `\f` character will clear the terminal?
@StaceyAnne and does minicom works as expected? I mean, clearing the display when receiving a formfeed?

Sadly, I have no other suggestions beside checking all serial settings.

These settings are the same as shown from your first stty command, so, yes, they seems right. Does minicom show the serial line status (connected or disconnected)? Does this status change when you disconnect the serial cable from the USB converter?

@StaceyAnne, my fault, since I tried it on a Mac, using a different sed (bsd instead of gnu). It seems that really gnu sed matches control characters. I think that this answer is the right one, then, since you may use it and filter what you read from ttyACM0 in order to translate formfeed in ansi escape sequences. Did you tried it? Does it really works as it should?

@jofel it seems that sed does not interpret control character. The following command show it: echo "\f" | sed 's/\f/formfeed received/g'. In your example it should not match the line while it matches the line.

At least, the xterm manual page at xfree86.org/current/ctlseqs.html seems to clarify the while in VT100 emulation a formfeed is translated in a linefeed.

I believe the FPGA is not sending the two characters backslash and f, but the correct control byte 0x0C.
