Re: SOLVED LM20.1 Unable to autostart xampp

... but why should we have to read your complaints or displeasure about instructions you found on another site? Just venting, please don't take it personally. And please point the stick elsewhere. Well, I guess I was venting because it's because I believed the other site, which said that ubuntu ver...

SOLVED LM20.1 Unable to autostart xampp

I have been running xampp for a long time and never had trouble until now. Formerly I had made a startup script named 'lampp' and placed it into init.d, then chattr -i /etc/init.d/lampp. On next start, xampp is running; my browser's home page is 'localhost/mysite/index.php'. But now I get an "u...

Re: using xargs in find command

Thanks, but sometimes 'myapp' has more than one line of output. When sorted, they are out of context. The command has to be something like find . -type f -name "*.html" | sort -V | xargs bash -I{} myapp {} > outputfile But I can't get this to work. Maybe I'm missing quotes somewhere... Tha...

using xargs in find command

I can do find ./dirname -type f -name "*.html" -exec myapp {} \; to run myapp on all the files in subdirectory ./dirname. But I'd like myapp to run on a sorted list of files. I then try find ./dirname -type f -name "*.html" | sort | xargs myapp and nothing happens. Myapp is a bas...

SOLVED (duh) LM20.1 Cinn Nemo scrollbar problems in Compact Mode

When I am trying to click a file at the bottom of the Nemo file pane, the scrollbar appears and partially overlays the file I'm interested in. I have to be VERY CAREFUL when selecting items at the bottom of the pane, as the viewport will often jump a huge distance when I'm in a directory that contai...

lm20.1 Increase duration of notification

Sometimes notifications disappear so fast that I don't have time to read them. Is there any way to increase the amount of time a notification stays up? I myself have used notify-send -t 10000 to set a long delay in some of my little bash scripts, but is there any way to do it globally? Some environm...

[SOLVED] desperately need to downgrade mate-terminal

I just re-installed LM20.1, and have done all the updates. Now I find that mate-terminal is working like gnome terminal: the --title command line parameter no longer works. (GRRRRRR!) I originally loaded mate-terminal because gnome-terminal doesn't work the way it's supposed to: --help-all: -t, --ti...

UNIMPORTANT crontab runs every every 5 minutes starting when?

I have the following line in my crontab:*/5 * * * * sadhu export DISPLAY=:0 && /ddr/bin/mywallch

Does that line fire at 5, 10, 15, etc minutes, or every 5 minutes from the time cron starts, eg, 22, 27, 32, 37 ... ?

Thanks,

Re: lm 20 cinn Hwawei E8372 router problems

Thanks, Larry. I checked and checked and checked, but all DNS stuff happens in the OS, not the router. The only setting in the router is for DHCP, and is 192.168.8.1 for the router that isn't working, or 192.168.1.1 for the router that is. I tried changing the dns in the ivp4 and ivp6 setup pages in...

SOLVED (using timeshift) lm20 on grub menu fails to load after installing manjuro

I have a multi-boot system loaded with LM18.3, 19.3, 20, and a spare partition /dev/sda5. I tried to add manjaro linux to /sda5, but it needs EFI, which I don't think I use... I installed the distro without EFI (and got a warning that the system might not boot), but it booted into the new OS. After ...
