Tonight while smanettavo a bit of Sid, I've a very strange thing, all of a sudden I do not know how and why, not

I was able to obtain root privileges. The error in the terminal was as follows:

(Gedit: 4397): libgnomevfs-WARNING **: Unable to create ~ / .gnome2 directory: No such file or directory
Could not create per-user gnome configuration directory `/root/.gnome2/ ': No such file or directory

After a bit of concussions are able to understand and solve the problem, which was given by a change (I do not know how

occurred) in / etc / passwd, where root was in / home / root instead of in / root. At this point I could only give a:

Ctrl-Alt-F1

nano / etc / passwd

and in line dedicated to root delete the entry / home. I hope it is useful to someone. Enjoi ;)

S egnalo these four excellent programs for mass rename photos, folders, mp3 based on their ID3 tags, etc.etc.

All quests. programs possess a graphical interface very simple and intuitive. Three are in the repository:

pyrenamer
gprename
Krename

The fourth is called Métamorphose a very powerful and flexible wrote in pyton. On the site you will find the deb package.

Installation requires if they are not already installed python-python-wxgtk2.6 wxtools.

apt-get install python-python-wxgtk2.6 wxtools

Unless you want to use something of the kind , are all four recommended.

O ne of the difficulties in moving from Windows to GNU-Linux is the fear of not having programs to which you are used to or at least equivalent. This is nothing more than an urban legend, carried out by those who have a monopoly and would like absolute death opensource. Certainly on a professional who uses Photoshop to work rather than Gimp, there is nothing to say, but all the others who use Photoshop to correct your own photographs or red eyes, I laugh, and make me think .... that if they had to buy it, the cocks that would use him. The software you pay, given that there are people behind who work there, or should rely all'opensource that it has so many programs, not forgetting that free does not mean free, because even in this world there are professional programs for a fee.

On why use Linux instead of Windows, on the pros and cons and on technical and ethical network has already written extensively. What little was said about it, that being a windows user rather than a linux user, may have relevances in terms of sex. This is what has emerged from recent studies done at Columbus University, where they were examined a thousand people between men and women, belonging to the two operating systems. Also among the luminaries who took part in these studies was curious to see if there were differences in the level of sex, since among them were members of either OS. They started their studies, bringing together men with women-linux-windows, and vice versa, then, men with women-windows-linux, and have begun to study them and follow them step by step in all the moments <love>. After months of study and hard work, we come to these conclusions: Read the rest of this entry »

Sometimes some things are forgotten, and thank goodness there the shell to remember them. I for example I could not remember the day of the week when I was born, and then I remembered cal.

cal

shows the current month

cal -y

shows the entire year

cal -3

shows along with the current month the previous one and the next one

cal January 1971

gave me last month when I was born, so I could remember that the day of the week was a Friday Azz are aged, it was better if I did not use cal

A ll we know what the 'MBR (master boot record), and all of us especially in the beginning we feared, especially when you installed the kind of os, which costs so much, and does not give you anything, not even a program , no, there is one, notepad.exe. However, as we all know, in 'MBR installs the boot loader and archived the partition table. So in case sminchiasse, for us would be a waste of time, and also un'incazzatura. So since prevention is better than cure, in our help comes to us the dd command, which saves us the first 512 bytes of the disk.

# Dd if = / dev / sda of = ~ / mbr.img bs = 512 count = 1

Et voila. Now it's safe. To check the content we use:

or -XA mbr.img

To restore it we use:

dd if = mbr.img of = / dev / sda bs = 512 count = 1

T here are several graphics applications that allow you to extract the audio tracks on a CD. I use it on my Debian gnome I for example sound juicer default. They are all very easy to use, but all are nothing more than a front-end graphics for the program command line tool called paranoia This however is very simple to use. Some examples:

cdparanoia -B

extracts all the tracks on the CD, in the form of wav files

cdparanoia -B - -2

extracts only the first 2 songs

Here the manual
