Subject: 2 practical examples of Expect on the Linux CLI

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

In my work I’ve not used “Expect” many times, but to do some jobs I’ve learnt how to use it, and I must say that to complete some tasks this program can help a lot and be a valid alternative to more complex solutions, like a complete program in python, php or your favorite scripting program.

Subject: Hibernation Disabled By Default In Ubuntu 12.04

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hibernate option is disabled by default in Ubuntu 12.04. Hibernate doesn't work in many cases with Ubuntu, so this decision was taken to avoid data loss/corruption that can happen when a user tries to hibernate his system. So if you are quite used to hibernate feature, you will have to rely on a workaround by manually editing some system files. There is no GUI option to enable/disable hibernate in Precise.

Subject: How to replace Activities word with any image in Gnome Shell

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

For this tutorial I will use Gnome Shell 3.4 and its default theme, but this will work also on 3.2 and pretty much on any theme that doesn’t already use animage for Activities. You will need user-theme extension, gnome-tweak-tool, an image and of course GNOME 3.2+.

Subject: Remotely Unlock Fully Encrypted Debian Squeeze

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

In the past I have written several howtos for remotely unlocking fully encrypted Debian installations. With the advent of Debian Squeeze, the developers have integrated a simple way to do so. Most stuff is provided directly by Debian itself - meaning you don't need 3rd party scripts anymore. However it still involves a few steps which I describe below. Also I provide you with a bash script that will do all the steps automatically.

Subject: Compulsory coding in schools: The new Nerd Tourism

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The writer Toby Young tells a story about how the modern 100m race is run in primary schools. At the starting pistol, everyone runs like mad. At the 50m point, the fastest children stop and wait for the heavier kids to catch up. Then all the youngsters walk across the finishing line together, holding hands. I have no idea if this is true, but the media class’s newly acquired enthusiasm for teaching all children computer programming is very similar.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Regardless of how good they are, some Linux applications have very little appeal to all but users with specialized needs. That is not the case with Xournal. Even if you do not use a tablet for inputing notes, this app still lets you create with style. If you are looking for a very handy note-taking application, check out Xournal.
