@WinEunuuchs2Unix no worries, the whole country speaks portuguese though. The neighbor countries speak spanish (in the colonization times Spain and Portugal made a deal and cut the south america colony vertically, which lead to most countries speaking spanish and Brazil speaking portuguese)
Say I start a process from the local shell - keyboard, mouse, monitor connected directly to actual physical computer...
I then go to a second computer and SSH into the first computer.
Can I switch to the local shell that's running the process on the first computer?
Specifically I'm using putty...
In Ask Ubuntu chat, there are some users (e.g. cl-netbox and Thomas Ward) of which the user icon is recently displaying wrongly most of the time:
cl-netbox' icon on all sites id a blue square with the white letters cl. It shows up this way in the user list on the right and even in the popup ...
Check the file /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf if the system uses NetworkManager. It contains wifi.powersave = 3. This configuration file came after 14.04 LTS.
To switch off the WLAN power save do:
Create a new configuration file with
sudo nano /etc/NetworkManage...
Oh, that answer is citing the first link so kinda circular.
@Zanna I don't know either, but it does seem reasonable. I guess it depends on what "powersaving" means in this context. It does not seem too far fetched to think that it might mean "turn off wifi when not in use", for example.
@Zanna There the new system out where smokey casts 3 automatic spam flags. That's why it's suddenly so fast.
TL;DR: We did it, so... yes.
What is this?
Charcoal is the organization behind the SmokeDetector bot and other nice things. This bot scans new posts across the entire network for spam posts and reports them to various chatrooms where people can act on them. If a post has been created or edite...
people here are very strict about POB. But on the Vegetarianism.se beta, I am struggling a lot because people ask questions like "is it acceptable to refuse to handle animal products for someone else" and then object when I VTC and say "this is too opinion-based blahblah"
@muru No, they aren't. Q-bans aren't network-wide. They are site-specific, and it is perfectly OK to ask somewhere else. Attempting to "bypass" a ban would be creating a sock to ask on the site you're banned on. Asking somewhere else is absolutely fine.
I will show here what I got with error tracker

On my Ubuntu 16.04, I've discovered that this line kills both Compiz and Firefox.
unity7 start/killed, process 22087
22087 is Compiz and it gets printed at each restart. Firefox gets a hit too, though that's not reported on in the terminal. No other demise observed.
Is this a design...
@cl-netbox This has been a very contentious issue on meta in the past. And it is a losing battle, people will always add version tags even when they're not really providing any useful information. The general idea is that i) if wee need to know the version (and we usually do) that should be in the question, not the tags. Tags should only categorize a question, they shouldn't be providing essential information.
and ii) that version tags are only relevant if the problem/question is specific to the version mentioned. Most questions are version-agnostic, really.
Tags like 12.04 and 13.04 are being used almost every time even if the question isn't version-specific, and even if the tag description explicitly says:
You should only use this tag if your question is hardware or version-specific.
Why is it a problem? Because the StackOverflow platform req...
We'd need a meta discussion first and nobody wants to start another meta discussion about version tags. There was quite a brouhaha over this in the past. Also, they are probably the most used tags on the site. Removing them would leave many questions untagged. It can be done, but it isn't super simple.
