Yeah. Its just like when I go home for the summer I go fucking nuts on torrenting. Anyways, any cons to running ubuntu side by side?
No, not at all (unless you do something stupid, like turn the computer off in the middle of the installation).
sweet. Wonder If ill have trouble removing it form my drive, since i made a ntfs partition.... pretty sure I just need to go to partition manager. I've been so swamped with school work I havent had the time i'd like to experiment. Also exercise has been taking time out. The main problem I had was when I was trying to download package, some of them seemed to be dated and I couldnt figure out how to remove garbage that I downloaded.
Rather unrelated to the subject at hand..
With the latest version of Wine in the Arch repositories, does Halo CE work properly for anyone else? Any transparent things are black for me and the game is laggy as all hell, I also get tons of spam in the terminal when I run it from one..

How can I stop using akmod nvidia drivers and revert to the nouveau drivers? Basically I followed this to get nvidia up and running but I find it annoying with my laptop because nvidia doesn't automatically switch to my laptop screen when I undock it from its dual monitor setup.
So after reading through the beginners guide twice i feel confident on installing Arch.
Problem is that i don't know if i wan't KDE with it. It seems like the "obvious choice".
But after mint 12 with KDE i know my way around, also with th help from here.
Would it be a good choice or should i choose something else?
How come Arch has connection troubles in Vbox 4.1.10?
Before I could do the core install and be able to do a straight -Syu and everything'd work fine. But now it fails to synchronize the databases.
Anyone else got this problem with the latest version?
Disregard, dhcpcd is a life saver.
What is the best Linux webserver? Or the best distro to use for Web Servers? Bringing in 25 new servers in my centre and need them optimized for web servers.
RHEL (classically has the best tech support) and Ubuntu Server (recently made big jumps in popularity). Just look those websites over and see what you need.
The only thing I'm worried about as far as going side by side is GRUB. Is there a way to get windows MBR back if I ever need too? (May be using wrong terminology.) Also, I was downloading a lot of packages from UI mods that weren't working properly, so my next question is how do I properly keep ubuntu clean and mean? :D?
You might have to do this from the recovery console, I am not sure. But you can get the Windows 7 repair discs for free, so that's not a problem :)Code:bootrec.exe /fixmbr bootrec.exe /fixboot
Does anyone know a very simple way to embed a terminal in the desktop in XFCE? I got it to work with XFCE's default terminal and wmctrl to move the windows, but it only seems to work half the time and sometimes one of them crashes. Can this be done with Conky?
Here's what I have so far:
Devilspie seemed to do the trick.
Anyone (particularly from the uk) having trouble installing xmonad at the moment?
Or alternatively if anyone knows how to make DWM not use the same window layouts for all tags.
Does anyone know how to add startup apps to an LXDE system?
im running lubuntu and want to run conky once I have logged in.
I tried adding @conky to the /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart file
but it didnt start it up and it made the login process like 10 seconds slower
Also conky doesnt show up in the "Session settings" menu
I have two computers that I use regularly. Is there a way to sync the whole Linux OS between the two computers? Like if I install a program with apt on computer x and then when I log into the computer y it would automatically install the program into that computer and sync the settings or something.
I know there are roaming profiles but they only sync the profile and not installed programs as far as I know.
No college IT departement would use a sniffer for such trivial thing. Most likely the connection is set through a proxy server that filters out certain websites/extentsions etc.
(Sniffers are never used to monitor user network traffic)
Say you download someone's script in a zipped folder, then open the java code. Is there a way of seeing a person's keystrokes or is they copied and pasted? If not with linux, what about windows?
Question, do i at ANY time need a wired connection for setting up Arch?
Because i hear that the wireless is the biggest problem coming to Arch, and a classmate told me he couldn't remember if i needed wired or not.
and then I just do ifconfig, iwconfig, and ping my router and 18.104.22.168 to check if I'm connected properly.Code:mv /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf.bak wpa_passphrase "SSID" > /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf [SSID in STDIN] wpa_supplicant -B -Dwext -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf dhcpcd
Netcfg does all the rest. You can even set-it up in rc.conf to automatically connect using netcfg as a daemon.Code:cp /etc/network.d/examples/wireless-wpa /etc/network.d/wireless nano /etc/network.d/wireless (Edit really simple file here) netcfg -u wireless
So, i don't need a wired connection?
Oh! new question, i installed Skype on Mint 12 KDE trough the software center, problem is i can't launch it?
At least you should be done, you can just do bootsect /nt60 ALL if shit doesn't work, that reinstalls the bootloader on all drives.
Just uninstalled XFCE and installed awesome
Now I just need to throw out my mouse and spend some time frustrated over learning to use the keyboard efficiently. Speaking of which, does anyone have a suggestion as to which resource is best for learning awesome?
