If its hard to use, it's a barrier to being a pest on your employees.

Subject: Linux livecd with different virusremovers

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

I just found out that TRK3.4 fails totally in the virus check department at the moment. I used to use it for offline removal of virii on our windows desktops, now I need a replacement. Any recommendations? bitdefender, f-prot and vexira would be nice.

Hey, does anyone know whether run-parts(8) will execute binaries, or does it require scripts?

never tried it, dunno.

I just found out you can run screen in screen. How cool is that.

I have always avoided doing that because .... if you ^A C for instance, which screen session takes it?

The outermost one. So if you wnat to get the inner one, you have to ^A A C.
you get used to it fairly quickly.

So some tab in my firefox (4) is leaking memory, I wake up to find my swap spinning like mad.
So I say, let's be stupid and upgrade to 7, I'm THREE MAJOR VERSION BEHIND!
I find the stable software souce channel and alas they only make builds for 11.04 and I'm still running ubuntu 10.10 because Irefuse to upgrade my machine for no reason and then spend days unbreaking everything the upgrade is going to break.
So I can't get the new firefox.
This whole thing is so broken.

I am using 10.4.3(LTS) because I don't feel the need to have the latest and greatest.

I use this PPA for Firefox:
http://ppa.launchpad.net/mozillateam/firefox-stable/ubuntu

and this for Thunderbird:
http://ppa.launchpad.net/mozillateam/thunderbird-stable/ubuntu

 

I do have the latest and greatest Firefox and Thunderbird.... only because now with the new crazy number system as soon as the newest version is released, the last version is no longer supported.  ugh.

It seems as if they are still pushing out 3.6.x updates, my laptop still is  on that version, since one webdesign plugin is so farkin old it won't work with anything else.

and why the fuck can't you download adobe flash as a plugin/addon like any other addon.

[#] Thu Oct 06 2011 10:58:50 EDT from IGnatius T Foobar @ Uncensored

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

Because they've got it wrapped up inside a bunch of other stuff to make it not crash your browser.  The package manager can more reliably install Flash than you can do it by hand.  Trust me on this one.

but my package manager doesn't give me the option to install firefox 7 let alone flash for it.

Since our friends at Canonical have decided that Unity will be the user interface for Ubuntu, and those of us who want to continue to operate real computers all seem to be switching to Xfce (xubuntu-desktop) I am now wondering whether there is any reason to continue using Ubuntu instead of just stock Debian.

So far the only reason I'm coming up with (and it's a good one) is that Ubuntu still makes it easier to automatically download and install those various "non-free" bits (codecs, drivers, etc) that the GNUoids would tell us that we must simply Not Use.

Am I missing anything?

well, next to being able to help novice users, I never saw a reason to switch to ubuntu in first place.

debian has non-free & contrib parts of repos, you just need to specify it in their apt-line whether you want to install software from them or not.

me (using i3wm.org) never used any kind of desktop; I don't need filemanagers, I know howto operate bash.

I3wm is just the most effective way to manage screenspace for my GUI applications which would be:

 - XTerms (yes truckloads of them, thats why they're first in the list)

 - Iceweasel (most of my GUI stuff runs there..)

 - Emacs (also some windows to the same Editor distributed over several screens & desktops)

 - KCachegrind

 - sqldeveloper (yack java crap...)

 - jmeter (yack more java crap...)

 - soapui (and even much more java crap)

and on testing or debugging icedove or evolution, ekiga now and then... and thats it.

Thanks dothebart but I was looking for reasons to *stay* with Ubuntu not to *leave* it. As far as I know, it's a pain in the ass to install things like non-free codecs and drivers on Debian, while on Ubuntu you click a couple of option boxes and it says "This may be illegal in your country, so it's up to you to check that out, m'kay? Nudge nudge wink wink say no more?"

That's the kind of thing I'm looking to find out if there's any more of.
