Re: C Programming

I've tried printf(argv[iter]) already, but it doesn't seem to work, as I get the ' format not a string literal and no format arguments ' error. That "error" is in fact a mere warning (due to the thing I said about "needing to guard against"), but still never mind, as it was a br...

Re: C Programming

./echo sample text here '\e[1;31mcolor\e[0m' The C printf() function merely writes to stdout; it's the terminal that (potentially) does interpretation of ANSI escape sequences, i.e., byte sequences starting with the ASCII ESC character. What you are having printf() output is however not an ANSI esc...

Re: How to PROPERLY eject a USB drive in terminal

Graphical desktop environments --- and especially the ones based around underlying GNOME-technology --- are unreliable, period. This post is/was specifically about "in terminal" though and can assure you that after sudo eject /dev/foo returns successfully all's over and done with.

Re: strange phenomenon abount mate terminal when using ssh

Don't and won't run MATE so can't see specifics but this'll be an environment difference. Specifically it seems ssh can't locate your private key in the keyboard-shortcut situation whereas it can in the desktop-shortcut one. Normally you keep a keypair in ~/.ssh/ so this would point to a difference ...

Re: Freezes / complete lock-ups -- [SOLVED]

I would not feel it likely here that Windows 10 links are relevant to the Windows 98 situation; certainly Windows 10 is new enough to use/support e.g. ACPI idle signalling that VMWare will/can use whereas 98... well, actually I don't know.

Mmm. Being 7G into swap is / might be certainly an issue; expected on a 16G Mint system would be 0G. Moreover, given that you have free memory now, that 7G is not being actively used by whatever allocated it and which at some point caused you to swap; just sits there collecting bitrot.

Re: HOWTO: Recover files from encrypted ecryptfs home directory

Mmm. So as to avoid confusion on comments on a HOWTO, the immediately above is not in fact true. The only thing you need to recover, i.e., decrypt, the content of what was once a user's home directory, is said user's login password at the time it was said user's home directory. Now, if we are talkin...

I'd look at https://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthread ... uracy-2019 although I'd add to have the definite feeling that Plextor isn't higher up there due to them having not produced drives for a very long time now. Very good personal experience with a PX-116A.

Re: New battery not holding charge?

First thought would be some runaway process eating CPU / battery. Try looking in top in a terminal when you "close the lid" to see if anything's misbehaving --- although the mere fact of closing the lid itself could be what triggers that which misbehaves.
