HOWTO: Install Tomcat 5.5
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 24, 2005
Installing Tomcat on Ubuntu
Step 1 – Install JRE and SDK
Download and install the Java Software Development Kit (SDK) and J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE). These packages are available through Synaptic (the extra repositories have to be added).
Or in terminal type:
sudo apt-get install sun-j2re1.5
sudo apt-get install sun-j2sdk1.5
N.B. SDK is 146MB and JRE is 84.7MB.
You can verify that both items were installed corectly, by checking that you get a response when typing in terminal:
Step 2 – Get tomcat
Download tomcat 5.5 from http://jakarta.apache.org/site/downloads/
In this example I am using jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9.tar.gz
Uncompress the file:
tar xvfz jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9.tar.gz
N.B. To make things simpler I also renamed the package to just 'tomcat'. If you do not do this, make sure you adjust these tutorial instructions to the name of your package w
[SOLVED] How do I get my sound card to work on Ubuntu 13.04?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 16, 2013
I had been using Ubuntu 10.10 in a dual boot/operating system with Windows XP for the last two years, but recently it would not boot, and I reinstalled it. However, since 10.10 was no longer supported, I could not get programs to load. So, I had to upgrade, and decided to install the most current version which is 13.04. I was never able to get my sound card to work as it should in 10.10, and would only deliver about half the volume level I get from Windows XP. But when I installed 13.04, I have been unable to get any sound at all. I know that my wiring and plug-ins are correct because it works great in XP. I have done considerable research on the Internet to get my sound card to work, but nothing I have read and tried works. For example, I tried 'alsamixer' at the Terminal command line, and when I explicitly followed the simple directions, it didn't make any difference.
The brand/manufacturer of my sound card is Creative Labs. I have seen their sound card products in most e
Permanently mount network drive
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 20, 2011
Hi I'm a little on the new side when it comes to Linux in general and I just installed Ubuntu a few days ago. There is a shared network drive that my school provides that I would like to have permanently mounted in Ubuntu. When performing this operation on Windows you simply click "map network drive" and enter the credentials. The address for the drive is like this: (where $something represents actual information)
and there are username and password credentials to input as well.
I've tried many other fixes found on the web and tried to adapt them to my needs but I'm missing something.
currently i have the following line appended to my fstab file:
//$something.$something.$something/share cifs iocharset=utf8,credentials=/path/to/.smbcredentials,uid=1000 0 0
when I run the
sudo mount -a
command i get this as the error:
mount error(115): Operation now in progress

Change default pdf reader
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 5, 2010
Hi forum! I hope someone can help me figure this out, because I've done everything that I can think to do and I still can't make it work. I really prefer Foxit reader over Evince for various reasons and want to make Foxit my default reader for everything. I use the Firefox addon Zotero to manage my dissertation research and the mountains of PDF files I've collected. I would like these to open with Foxit rather than Evince. Here are the steps that I've taken and their outcomes:
1. Right-clicked on a PDF on my desktop, selected properties, and changed the Open With option to Foxit.
2. Edited some stuff, like so:
to FoxitReader %F
as well as changing
3. Changed Firefox preferences (Edit>Preferences>Applications) and selected Foxit from the dropdown menu for PDF.
4. Uninstalled Evince, in the hopes that this would make Foxit the default (and only!) PDF reader. (This seemed
Slackware 14.1 + Xfce: apps for burning and viewing PDF files
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 7, 2013
I'm currently busy preparing my customized MLED and MLWS repositories for Slackware 14.1.
The Xfce-based MLED 14.0 has Evince 3.4.0 as PDF viewer, and Brasero 3.4.1 as burning app. Both are nicely integrated into Xfce and work very well.
Now I'm starting to face a wall with 14.1. Brasero 3.4.1 refuses to build, and more recent versions suffer from the GNOME sickness: they have an unsatisfiable hunger for even more GNOME dependencies and tend to draw the whole GNOME kitchen sink in.
I gave up on Brasero and went for Xfburn instead. Nicely integrated, only one drawback: it can't handle M3U (or any) playlists, so if you burn audio, you have to manually select every audio file. I wrote a mail to the Xfburn developer, but never got a response.
Right now I don't even want to give Evince a spin. On the other hand, Acroread is not really an option. So what does that lea
viewing a pdf when using xterm
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 18, 2004
Hello, if I don't get this answered tonite then it'll have to help someone else :-)
I have a DVD with a tutorial on it here at work. The new machine is some kind of Linux and the shell terminal is xterm. The GUI is ice which I'm not familiar with. I want to see the DVD/CD whatever it is. I went to /mnt/cdrom1 and got a list of everything on the disk; they are all pdf's. The GUI doesn't have anything for viewing disk drives or acrobat (which I'm sure is somewhere in there). Is there a way to see this tutorial?
I found vi can't even read the text in it :-)
This is a GE Lightspeed Cat scanner and I'm sure they'd put acrobat reader on there if the disk says "you can use this disk on the Lightspeed workstation or at home."
If I don't figure it out tonite I'm going to "borrow" it and view it at home and it will have to be back by Sunday night. (I am in US EST).
How Open Source works? What is Open Source?
location: linux.com - date: July 11, 2011
Here is my brief video about "How Open-Source Works, and a basic question What is Open-Source".
YouTube Video URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZSwzkYLd1o
In this video I explain the overview and the overall big picture of Open-Source, I hope it may help many who are willing to contribute open-source, and even who knows people may get inspired to start new open-source projects, and people who are contributing Linux and Linux based open-source projects.
I have given various examples in this video, also given a prime example of Linux Kernel itself. As you can understand unlike many other open-source projects (assume, MySQL, Squid, etc), Linux Kernel releases are a bundle of many open-source kernel modules, device drivers supported by third-party vendors, individuals, contributors, PLUS Linux Kernel source with it.
Hence you can get over-view and a basic insight of open-source licensing, and terms.
For example (general open-source licenses like GPL variants, BSD, MIT, an

So I have a backup file for my gnucash. The file ends in .gzip. I have tried apt-get install gzip, and get message it is already installed. I can not do on "open with", because gzip does not show up. If I try to open, I get message "archive type not supported".
