Hi people, anybody that has used sublime text can tell me how good it is and it is worth buying it
 
lots of people like it. ask jorge and oli. seems like they both use it
 
lol, I think you just took it all and sold me in it by mentioning those 2 guys
if they are using it it has to be good
now all I need is to gather the 60$ it costs
 
yep oli does for sure:

Q: Change all associations from gedit to another application

OliI started using Sublime Text 2 a week or so ago and I loved it so much I've spent $60 on it and now want to use it for everything. Gedit currently has ownership of most of the text file associations. I'd essentially like to replace any association to gedit with sublime-text-2. Any tips availabl...

Anybody know where the launchpad bug part of empathy is? The only one I am finding is for a pretty old empathy, not the one in 12.04 or 12.10.
 
you file against lib-telepathy don't you?
 
well I actually thought it was against "empathy"
I am talking about the whole "Desktop Sharing" problem
 
oh...that i don't know. i know the backend is the telepathy suite
 
give me a second while I look at it. My connection is VERY slow
 
take your time. i could be wrong on where to file the bug, but that's the back-end that drives empathy
 
1:56 AM
well it somehow threw me to a Skyfe or something like that project. Something about empathy + skype + ketchup. Any way it was the only way to post a bug so I did it there.
 
yeah, a triager will correct where it's posted if it's wrong. i suspect that's the right place though

@EliahKagan Is it acceptable for an OP to edit and completely change his/her accepted answer which was posted by another user?
@Joshua the film's protagonists
 
4:45 AM
hi
@msPeachy to include those?
IF the answer is changed to include some other solutions to his answer, i think it is not good
 
5:07 AM
@Anwar the OP actually changed the whole answer with another solution, his comment on the edit was that "he found a better answer". I didn't approve it, but I think someone does. Maybe he should have just posted another answer with his solution and not mess up the previous posted answer which he accepted anyway.
 
5:29 AM
@msPeachy I think, i approved it. (i wasn't very careful though)
i really didn't examine the question. do you have the link?
 
@Anwar Oh you did? I was about to approve it, but I wasn't sure.
no, I forget about it, I could check my history if I can find it.
 
I approved it and then i thought, i did an error, but after going to the revision, i saw he radically changed his own edit
So, i finally thought, the approval was correct

the Gtk+ for Windows maintainer went off reservation so there's no official windows build
 
that sounds bad

Hi @JourneymanGeek
 
@JourneymanGeek yes. gtk2. not pygi/gtk3
 
ya ;p
I don't know of anything on windows on GTK3 >_>
 
there are people that claim to have it working...but there's no standard and it's an opensuse build system crutch thing
it's just the "if you're targeting ubuntu with gtk use pygi" push coupled with it killing off simple windows compatibility thing...so i think i need to switch

An emoticon () is a pictorial representation of a facial expression using punctuation marks and letters, usually written to express a person's mood. Emoticons are often used to alert a responder to the tenor or temper of a statement, and can change and improve interpretation of plain text; emoticons for a smiley face :-) and sad face :-( appear in the first documented use in digital form. The word is a portmanteau word of the English words emotion and icon. In web forums, instant messengers and online games, text emoticons are often automatically replaced with small corresponding images...

This is a list of notable and commonly used emoticons or textual portrayals of a writer's mood or facial expression in the form of icons. The Western use of emoticons is quite different from Eastern usage, and Internet forums, such as 2channel, typically, show expressions in their own ways. In recent times, graphic representations, both static and animated, have taken the place of traditional emoticons in the form of icons. Western The emoticon in Western style is written most often from left to right as though the head is rotated counter-clockwise 90 degrees. Thus, most commonly, one...

Only the few recipies don't do it here. Maybe an issue from 12.04.
I thought of writing a bug but then I can not even say where the bug is.
 
Also, we don't have another specialist on audio :P
 
Usually all bugs are erroneous user settings.

^^ this is interesting
BBL (power down)
 
I could not live with constant power downs...
Most erroneous user settings arise from outdated or missing documentation.
Why write a documentation when an app is supposed to run out of the box.
 
1:48 PM
@Takkat LOL
 
In fact I do believe that the best of all apps won't bother users with preference settings.
Mostly there is only one setting that makes sense in a certain context.
It should be up to the app to get this right.
But then all professional or ambitious customizers will hate that app.
 
i'm all for defaults and "just run me", but configuration/preferences are -- i think -- necessary. i mean it's a user decision. it's no different than needing buttons during run. it's just a question you could ask over and over again, so instead it's a preference setting
 
lol
@Takkat i just spent 3 days beating something into doing something
then half a day beating something else into doing that, in a very ugly way
 
@aking1012 very true that but mostly because the context is not really clear.
 
@Takkat yes. yours was a direct statement. mine was general
 
1:55 PM
oh wait, we're being sarcastic
 
@JourneymanGeek lol
 
@aking1012 general statements are closer to the truth.
 
@Takkat: ambitious customisers will find a way
 
@JourneymanGeek they run k3b instead of Brasero e.g.

I'd do that anyway ;p

@Takkat: probably a legacy of metered bandwidth
 
2:19 PM
or a personal laptop on a corp network...it's a possibility
 
But why a button you are bound to hit accidentally... well - its probably because of a better "user experience"
 
probably the everything must be clickable in under 3 navigation events thing
 
Which I think is a good thing. More than three clicks is very tiresome.
We have a corp app that needs 3 clicks to terminate.
They made the buttons on the opposite corners of the screen.

@Anwar That's not really the same question; the first one you posted a link to is about replacing one Windows 7 installation with another while preserving the Ubuntu installation, and the second is about installing Windows 7 when only Ubuntu is installed (while preserving the Ubuntu installation).
 
both answer is same imo
 
@Anwar Following this answer on a system with Ubuntu and Windows 7 both already installed will result in getting a second Windows 7 system installed. The Windows 7 system already present won't be replaced. The OP would have an Ubuntu system, a 32-bit Windows 7 system, and a 64-bit Windows 7 system.
 
thank you.
o/ y'all
 
(Also, I'm not sure that answer is correct at all--Windows 7 wants to have two partitions rather than just one, as it uses an equivalent of a separate /boot partition. It's usually best to create unpartitioned space and let the Windows installer create the necessary partitions. But that itself shouldn't keep us from duping it, if a correct answer would be right for both questions.)
 
3:36 PM
I voted it to another question. Can you check that?
 
@Anwar I think this one is really no better (though its answers are better). You don't need to make space, to replace one Windows 7 system with another, for example. A correct answer to "how to add Windows 7 and keep Ubuntu?" will necessarily be different from a correct answer to "how to reinstall Windows 7 and keep Ubuntu?" which is really what's being (awkwardly) asked there.
 
@EliahKagan I got your point. Should I answer that question then?
 
@Anwar If you can, I'd say yes.
 
My answer would be simple (though i would be glad to include screenshot, but i don't have vm..) 1. First install Windows 7 on the old partition, 2. Boot Live Ubuntu from USB or CD 3. Install Boot-repair 4. Fix grub. 5 reboot.
Is that OK?
 
Good night everyone
 
3:50 PM
@msPeachy bye
 
@msPeachy Bye.
@Anwar I'd recommend being specific about how it is going to work when you install Windows where Windows was already installed. Also, do you know that this will work--that is, that Windows 7 will be able to cleanly replace itself (remember, it's not a classic reinstallation, because the architecture is changing)? I'm not sure that it will work, if that simple technique is used. It might be necessary to remove the Windows partitions, and then install Windows.
(Still this is different from the other questions though, because you don't make space for Windows by resizing the Ubuntu partition.)

@EliahKagan Yes, it will work. Windows 7 is intelligent enough to kill it's 32bit brother and replace itself (64bit) for it

@karthick87 Did you restart the browser since installing Flash? What version of Flash is installed? Does it work in other browsers besides Opera (like Firefox or Chromium)? Also, it's possible this question or this question will help.

Adobe Shockwave Player
To install the Adobe Shockwave Player plug-in, follow the steps below:

Download the Adobe Shockwave Player installer or the full installer for Netscape from the Adobe site..
Close Opera before installing it.
Run the downloaded installer and follow the instructions. If Opera is not listed in the installer, click the Browse button and locate the Program\Plugins folder in your Opera installation folder, which should be C:\Program Files\Opera\Program\Plugins by default.
The necessary file, np32dsw.dll, should now be present in the Program\Plugins directory in your Opera
 
5:43 PM
Wait...so, is this problem happening in Windows?
Because if so, none of my suggestions from before are likely to be particularly helpful.
 
@aking1012 shockwave player is already listed there. But flash player is not listed.. But i am able to play youtube videos in my opera.. Moreover no files were found under C:\Program Files\Opera\program\plugins
 
@aking1012 I think if there's not a lot of other more on-topic stuff being discussed and it doesn't become a huge conversation (at which point it should be moved to a separate chat room), asking Windows questions here in chat shouldn't be looked down upon too much. There's all sorts of off-topic stuff we're cool with in chat, including cat pictures! And questions about proprietary software, per se, aren't OT for AU (though that Flash in Opera on Windows Q is of course totally off-topic on main).
 
I didn't say it was a bad thing. it was for comedic effect mostly
 
On the other hand, I am also inclined to agree with you, in that it's somewhat unlikely that most such questions could actually be answered here.
@aking1012 Ah.

It seems familiar, which is why I'm asking. If it hasn't, I'll answer with information about how to work around the problem, and how to report it as a bug. Theoretically, we should close this as a bug, but the OP is not particularly unlikely to be able to file a bug report with the necessary information, without knowing how to work around the problem.
And the workaround (to log in on a virtual console and install and use gdm instead) isn't in any way specific to the underlying cause of the bug--it would be helpful to others not experiencing this particular bug (assuming this is a bug and not some misconfiguration).

Rob HI've just had someone install Ubuntu 12.04. I am not a techie - just a user. I am now asked for a password which I do not have and has never been set. Is there a default one? Otherwise I have to work as a guest all the time... Not so great. I appreciate any help.

Q: Java problems "Too Old"

user90976I am trying to play Runescape, but I keep getting a java too old error. Please help. It's not worked for months now. I thought it would go away on it's own. I was wrong. Instead, it has actually continually getting worse, where to the point of now it does not even load.

In fact, it only got worse.

Can you answer this? Ubuntu 12.04: Replacing pulseaudio with Alsa? http://askubuntu.com/q/157931?atw=1 #sound
 
Time to fix up my sitemap.xml file.

The problem here is a crash--should this be closed as a bug? (If so, a moderator will probably have to be involved, as there's a current bounty.)

Q: Cannot apply unity --reset after modifying files

Alex ClineSo I have an idea of what I did wrong, I am just not sure how to fix it. I used the Unity Glass mod: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2012/07/unity-glass-offers-refined-new-look-for-the-unity-launcher After removing it, I cannot reset unity and it does not work. Even after purging Unity and reinstal...

Anyone here familiar with OpenSSL?
 
@GeorgeEdison depends on what you want to do with it
@lazyPower javascript is a pain to debug with no errors at all sencha
 
I was just describing the problem here.
 
@GeorgeEdison browsers will complain that they can't validate it, but you can provide a key for people to add to their cert stores so they know to trust your site
some companies/governments appear to be using invalid/unverified certificates b/c they run their own CAs
 
@aking1012 Right - this won't be browser-based.
I am writing a custom client application and therefore have explicit control over how everything works.
 
okay if you're doing it with self signing, first make a signing certificate (pub/priv). give out that pub. then generate a new cert signed with that for your server. the pub key from step one is included in your application.
make sense?

Whoah... I'm lost :( What files should I end up with when I create the signing certificate?
Is that the .csr file?
 
here's the whole chain. it should get you sorted: flourishlib.com/docs/ObtainingaSecureCertificateKeyPair
 
Thanks.
 
public.crt is what you're after and np
