Re: This Squid business is driving me crazy

Copying the files from another installation into /etc/init.d and /etc/sane did the trick.


Thanks for the help.

software similar to modem-manager-gui for LTE wireless 4G router

I have a Marvell-Mobile Composite device, a 4G dongle which I use to connect my desktop machine (which lacks a wireless adapter) to the internet. (Incidentally, when the dongle is powered up, my laptop is able to connect wirelessly.) It uses USB to simulate an ethernet connection to my desktop. To s...

Re: E: squid: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1

Still happening.

One way to fix it is to set software updater to "Ignore updates for this package."

I hope this won't have ramifications in the future.

Re: SOLVED remote mysql administration

TYVM, ciniset. As it happens, I had looked at adminer before, but its lack of documentation kinda scared me, so I didn't follow up. But I downloaded it on your recommendation (it's just a big php file), uploaded it into a password-protected directory, and pointed my browser to it, and it works perfe...

SOLVED remote mysql administration

I am hoping someone can suggest an app or php/javascript suite that can allow me to do minor administrative tasks on the database on my remote site. I now use phpmyadmin via cpanel, but am looking for a faster way. I used to run a plugin to the CMS 'textpattern', which I never ran, except for the pl...

Re: Preserve timestamp on transferred files local to remote server

Figured out how to upload files to the remote web hosting service, while retaining the timestamps. First, I gather all the new or changed files into an archive, then upload the archive, and extract the files on the remote host using the tools in cpanel's file manager. find . -type f -newermt '2017-0...

SOLVED Preserve timestamp on files transferred to remote web hosting server

Hi, I've been using filezilla for ages, and only now I discover that I can use Nemo for much of the same purpose. A happy discovery! What I need to do is preserve the file timestamp during transfers, especially uploads. Neither filezilla nor nemo seem to be able to do this. Also, related question: i...

font encoding suddenly changed to current locale instead of default utf8-us

LM 18.3 I was slaving away in an IDE and I guess I hit some random keys, because the input/keyboard (?) font changed to Sinhla (I live in Sri Lanka). System Settings > Language still showed English US UTF8 for language and region. Every text box I typed in after that showed Sinhala letters. Couldn't...

edit or delete items on Nemo's "Open with" context list

In various LM 18.3 installations (desktop and two laptops), when I right-click a file in Nemo, then select "open with" I get a list of applications, often with duplicates. On the Laptop, for instance, "okular" shows up more than 8 times. Also, I have edited my menu so that libreoffice writer opens w...
