I 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...
Since the site went into read only mode then came back, it has not updated at all. According to the question list, the last newest question was five hours ago. It is the same with some of the other stack exchange sites, except for stackoverflow which hasn't undergone the server change yet.
@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.
I have a home network with the following setup:
A QNAP NAS (has a DAAP server)
A server/media center with XBMC
2 laptops (Linux)
1 desktop (Linux)
For a couple of years I haven't been able to find a good solution to my music sharing that allows for the following:
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...
^in case someone needs to prepare for the next question
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.
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...
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
When I boot, my computer just tells me it can't detect graphic card (or something else) settings and it has to use the low graphics mode. Then it gives me four choices, but doesn't let me choose any of them.
I can get my computer to boot by going to some sort of terminal mode and then typing sud...
I want to create a shortcut for a folder on unity. How is it possible?
Edit:- I would think of this shortcut as quick-link in windows for referencing a frequently used item easily without having to navigate the directory structure every time I need to access it.
@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).
@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.
(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.)
@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.
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.
@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.)
Alps Loaded but PS/2 mouse also loaded!
I have a Dell Inspiron 15R with Ubuntu 11.10 x86-64 installed. I am having a problem with the Alps touchpad. My touchpad's driver loads, which is synaptics, and it gets recognized in xinput --list and in Xorg.0.log, but it's s...
@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 …
@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).
Trying to get the nvidia drivers to output 720p component (as they did in my 10.10 system), I've hosed my Mythbuntu 12.04 config in some way. The current status is this:

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).
I upgraded my ubuntu from 11.04 to 11.10 via mounting the latest alternate CD image released on Oct. 13 as the final standard version and running the cdromupgrade prompt successfully, with full latest upgrades installed before ending the distribution upgrading process and rebooting. After reboot,...

Nautilus's thumbnail cache in ~/.thumbnails has grown to several hundred megabytes.
Do I need to be concerned about unrestricted growth of this in the long term, or is its size automatically managed somehow?
I'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.
I 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.
So I have an idea of what I did wrong, I am just not sure how to fix it.

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.
