Re: The infamous Dell mouse drift

You can try writing your own startup script for this, and have it load just after X server is loaded. I'm assuming you create a Scripts directory in your home directory, and call the script fix-mouse.sh. You can replace below commands with other location or name if you want. 1. Start a terminal 2.

Re: Sandy Bridge i5-2500K, H67 and Dual Monitors

Hi, I'm using ASRock H67M-GE/HT motherboard, which has H67 chip, with i5-2500k. The board has DVI, HDMI, VGA and DisplayPort output. Don't know how they did that on microATX, but I love this board's features and stability :D I had to enable dual monitor out support in the BIOS, and it works without ...

Perhaps add the output of:

Nice example of BASH wizardry :) BTW you don't need the grep statement in that command: for i in `seq 1024` ; do (echo >/dev/tcp/localhost/$i) &>/dev/null && echo "TCP port $i open"; done And I do prefer one of these 3 alternatives, though you need sudo for these iirc: sudo lsof -i | grep LISTEN sud...

Re: Is LM 11 A Step Back?

Credits indeed to the team, as Linux Mint 11 is much more stable than Ubuntu 11.04. I switched from Ubuntu because I got bored of the daily random crashes. I can't imagine the work done on that to make Linux Mint 11 as stable as it is, on my machine at least. Not a single crash since switching :wink...

Re: Cannot load gnome session in Katya. How to recover?

Then I think you need to reinstall Linux Mint to get it working again. You may want to dual boot with Fedora 15, or run it in VM, so as to play around with GNOME3.

Re: Cannot load gnome session in Katya. How to recover?

Once you get the error, try pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 to go to the virtual terminal for text login. Failing that, during boot press and hold shift to go to the GRUB menu and choose safe mode / recovery mode or something it is called. Run the following commands to enable seeing error messages during boot....

Re: create script to run command on remote computer

I think you need to give the commands to ssh, as below. For longer actions, create a script on the remote machine that you can invoke through ssh when needed.

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh

ssh root@192.168.1.5 'sleep 10 ; qm start 112'
