When I was installing it, my phone crapped out and I had like no documentation whatsoever.
So inexplicably gThumb stopped working. It's my favorite image viewer.
I hadn't been changing settings or anything. It simply stopped working.
Opening in terminal (or attempting to) I get the following error
EDIT:Code:stephen@spc:~$ gthumb (gthumb:2075): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: g_file_get_path: assertion `G_IS_FILE (file)' failed (gthumb:2075): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed (gthumb:2075): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: g_file_get_path: assertion `G_IS_FILE (file)' failed (gthumb:2075): Gtk-WARNING **: GtkTextMark being finalized while still in the buffer; someone removed a reference they didn't own!

It has inexplicably began to work again after I installed a few new programs to try them out.
Which distro would you recommend for a server? I'm building my own server, and have used CentOS on a VPS before, but am wondering if there are better alternatives?
Without some 20 000 step installation, please.
RHEL is the traditional server Linux.
I think CentOS is RHEL-based?
Well if you want you could always try Arch but I hear CentOS is just fine
Alright, I'll keep using CentOS then.
Is software RAID difficult to set up with it? I'm thinking of having two 1TB drives in RAID 1, as I have a file hosting service and losing the files would be pretty bad for the users. And for my reputation.
I'd go with Scientific Linux, it's more up to date, and the developers aren't assholes like CentOS.
If you want up to date, I'd go with Debian stable.
So this may sound dumb because this is my first arch install. I have a problem where my wifi is ether eth0 or eth1 and when it is on eth0 it works fine but when it was on eth1 I had to use run dhcp on every startup. so I gave it a static IP like I did with eth0 and it just does not work now.
I did the static ip in rc.conf like so: eth0="eth0 192.168.1.3 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255"
and the only thing I changes w.as eth0 to eth1 and the IP.
Ahem, can I get some advice anytime soon? Please?
netcfg, since it's very easy to get working. Since your internet is not working, it could be likely that your router is denying you to lease that IP; dhcp is more easier to use in this case.
Hello! About 6 months ago, I became interested in Linux. While it could have gone much, MUCH worse, I ended up erasing Windows and about 10 years' worth of precious memories trying to install Ubuntu. Needless to say, my parents were pretty angry at me.
Fast forward about a month, and I re-install Ubuntu, and it works. However, I eventually take it off, due to my parents literal FEAR of it, but mostly because it slow and took up a bunch of space on my hard drive that I needed for my vidya games. During this period, I started trying to figure more about how the magical computarbot worked. I learned a decent amount, and burned a couple cds of different distros to try them out a bit, and figure out which one I wanted.
Unfortunately, before I could do anything, my cd drive decides it and the BIOS aren't very good friends anymore. It has a habit of doing this occasionally, but that's a story for another time. Anyways, I keep on learning small amounts, such as how Linux is a kernel, not an OS, and how much I should shut up.
Very recently, however, I learned about virtualization and all that good stuff. Right now, I'm running Arch and Crunchbang through VMware. It's been an interesting experience, learning to use an OS that isn't Windows. I've only used a Mac once before, and all I did was play crappy flash games for about half an hour.
The second option is better IMO. The part after the -OR-
I would also recommend using eth0 for your lan and wlan0 for your wireless.
"Shit was so cash" is actually rather hilarious when done properly
After I decided that I didn't want to use Vista anymore on my older PC, I tried Ubuntu for the first time, rather liked it after getting used to it.
It's something fresh that I can try out for awhile.
Just one question, is there any simple way of running .Run files? Can't find it anywhere for some reason.
You would preferably want to do this in a terminal since some .run files are CLI only.
All you need to do is.
Code:cd path/to/directory/with/runfile/ chmod +x yourrunfile.run ./yourrunfile.run
So-o, deciding that having all my computers generate an entirely new local IP every time the router lost power, I looked into it, and set a static IP for three of my computers. All three are wired by Ethernet to the router, not wireless.
[list][*]192.168.1.10 is my PC in my room (spc.local)[*]192.168.1.30 is the second family PC (fpc2.local)[*]192.168.1.100 is my home server (ssv.local)[/list]
I looked up on a forum that I could do this by editing /etc/network/interfaces, as such:
However, there is another computer, the FIRST family PC, which is connected wirelessly (All other computers are wired by Ethernet). I'd like to set it to 192.168.1.20.Code:GNU nano 2.2.6 File: /etc/network/interfaces auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.100 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1
Going to its /etc/network/interfaces, there is no auto eth0. In fact, it just stops after the loopback. Do I just add an eth0? Or no, because eth0 is Ethernet and not wireless?
Wireless is a little less straightforward because there's also the matter of which AP to associate with, and the password needed to do so, and /etc/network/interfaces isn't the place for that. You could configure wpa-supplicant by hand, but it'd be better to use NetworkManager instead of /etc/network/interfaces for this. It's the applet that you (should) see in your tray, that gives you a list of wireless networks when you click on it; right-click and pick "edit connections", and you can change the IP settings.
Why do you need static IPs though? It's simpler to have everything autoconfigure via DHCP. Most routers let you do "static DHCP", where the router recognizes a machine by its MAC address and always assigns it the same IP, which basically gives you static IPs without having to configure them individually on each machine. And if you install Bonjour for Windows, or Avahi (which is probably already installed) on Linux systems, you can refer to other machines by "<machinename>.local" and not even have to care what the IP is.
Ok, well in the meantime I had a minor crisis involving Grub not working, but that's settled. Now, using Network Manager like you said, I have all four IPs set up. Thanks!
Regarding why, I will tell you that my router is an ancient Belkin home-use piece of shit, maybe 8 years old. I don't think it'll support static DHCP, and I can't check at the moment because it's erroring up about a nonexistant other administrator. Dammit.
When it works with virtual servers and port forwarding, it only works by local IP address, so every time the power went out it was changed, and I had to change effing everything. Now, everything is so nice and neat, hostnames and everything!
Speaking of hostnames, I did know that you could use hostname.local, but that didn't work with Windows for me, but I said who gives a shit anyhow, I never use it. But now I can look into Bonjour!
Windows doesn't do .local by default; Bonjour adds support for it. (Apple calls it "Bonjour Print Services" these days, but it does more than provide access to printers; it's an implementation of mDNS.)
I got the most wonderful transparent PNG desktop background. I'm wondering if there is a way to slowly or randomly change the color behind the desktop background in Ubuntu.
Some other time. I REALLY need to go to bed, I've been saying that for 7 hours now.
Hi, newbie here.
I have a small useless webserver running and I wanna update the html files, so I ftp in and try uploading. NOPE permission denied. Can't overwrite existing files either.
How do I configure it to work?
Does anyone play Minecraft or any other OpenGL game with a compositor running? For me, it works perfectly fine until I start alt tabbing between the game and like, Chrome. After a while, it slows down extremely and alt tabbing between Chrome and Minecraft takes a good 15-30 seconds. Then I get massive desktop corruption, screen flashes, and eventually x.org freezes up.
Anyone else have that issue/a resolution?
Does anyone have any experience in using Samba4 (the alpha version) to host an Active Directory domain controller on Linux?
However I'm no expert on FTP to be honest. I don't use it when updating my Website, I just use a short shell script I wrote that uses wget (HTTP download from command line) to update my server from my home computer.
I use SSH to put files on my server.
Scp for one off stuff, and rsync for websites.
Should I use Windows partitioner or Ubuntu installer partitioner to partition?
I have a tiny, tiny shell script on my server and another on my home PC that zips up the ENTIRE website on my development site on my home computer, places it within the webroot directory, and then SSHes into the server and activates ITS shell script.
The server shell script downloads the archive, then unzips, moves into place.
I didn't know about rsync up until now. Huh. I'll have to look into it
You don't necessarily have to use rsync, but you could use scp to transfer the zip file.
It's just like cp over SSH.Code:scp local.zip remoteserver.com:/home/user
Code:#!/bin/sh cd ~/website rm -r * wget http://spc.local/ws.7z p7zip -d ws.7z cd /var/www rm -r /var/www/* cp -r ~/website/* ./ rm -r ~/website/*
There is the portion of the shell script on my server. The reason I do it like this is so that I can execute one command from my home computer, and enter a single password (to ssh into my server to execute the server's shell script), and it's all done. One command that asks for one password.
Plus it clears the directory before updating the files, which is nice.
Note that my server is here at home with me. I don't do anything serious with it so whatever. Link to my totally non-serious website is on the left.
Also, regarding dynamic IPs:
I THINK I'm supposed to have a dynamic IP. But for as long as I can remember, it's bee 22.214.171.124. So maybe I DO have a static IP. It's never changed.
I want to recreate this:
But I just installed awesome, how would I go about doing that, and what are the music player and irc called in the first image?Him posted:
