[SOLVED] Syncable calendar widget on my desktop
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 28, 2013
In Linux Mint Debian Edition, I'd like the Cinnamon panel calendar applet to show entries from my actual calendar/agenda, which I currently sync between Google calendar and my phone.
The idea is to get that calendar synced to some application in my LMDE, which the desktop widget/panel applet would pull its data from.
For instance, the Gnome-Shell calendar applet can do that with Evolution, but it seems like the Cinnamon equivalent doesn't have that feature. Any other kind of dock, desktop widget etc. that'll play nice with Cinnamon is ok though, I just guess the built-in panel applet would be the most elegant solution, as it's already there and I like it there.
Also, I am trying to replace Google calendar with fruux.com. They support syncing to a number of apps and services - CardDAV, CalDAV too. So the desktop widget in question would have to pull its information from that app (e.g. Evolution, Thunderbird) or service (e.g. CalDAV).
Please point me to stuff that can do this kind of
HOWTO: Google Calendar vs. Outllook & Evolution & Tbird Lightning
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 28, 2009
I'm dashed if I can get Google Calendar to sync with
Outlook 2003 then Evolution then Thunderbird Lightning.
QUESTION: Can anyone help me sort this out?
Why all three desktop applications?
I want one calendar that is the ungarbaged word about what I'm doing.
Google Calendar does what I need and is web available.
At work, we use Outlook 2003.
At home, I use Lightning on dual boot because it runs on both
win-dose and ubuntu linux.
PDAs and SmartPhones sync with Outlook and Evolution better
than they sync with any of the other desktop PIM (personal
I'd like to use Evolution on dual boot once the win32 edition
is finally available.
As a result, my project involves getting Google Calendar to sync
with Outlook 2003 and Evolution for now.
Xubuntu 13.04 Logs Out Randomly with Enter Key
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 1, 2013
Xubuntu 13.04 - Samsung RV510
4Gs - 512 SSD - Dual Boot Win 7
Xubuntu tends to randomly log me out at random times. It only happens, however, when I press the enter key at any time. I notice it more when I am working on a terminal, but it happens anywhere. All jobs are still running, however, because I was running a gparted resize when it happened last, but the resize was still going after logout and login.
PGP key size in Ubuntu
location: linux.com - date: June 14, 2011
Is it true that PGP keys in Ubuntu can't have a key bigger than 1024bits? and that 4096bits is just a label you can see in Seahorse key manager?
I've heard this is to let government be able to break the key (clearly, by brute forcing).
Is that true?
If that's true, what's the cure?
Ubuntu 9.10 or 10.04 won't accept my wep key
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 11, 2010
Hi, sorry if this has been asked before but I can't seem to find any other topics with exactly this problem and i'm getting extremely frustrated here. Starting from a fresh hard drive I installed 10.04 Beta 2, and unlike previous installations of ubuntu, it did not connect out of the box even though I was using my same wireless router as I have been for the past 4 months. That's fine, I opened up the network manager and edited the automatically detected wireless connection, entered the 10-digit WEP key set at 40/128 as it should be, and the network throbber in the top taskbar spins around like its trying to connect but then after about a minute it just asks for my WEP key again. I'm certain I'm entering the correct digits and my brother who is running 10.04 beta 2 is using the exact same key and his connection is fine. I ensured my network settings all matched his and mine still behaves the same way. All other computers in the house (Windows) can connect except me, but there is no wa
Quake III Arena Constant CD Key requests
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 6, 2004
What's up with quake III on linux guys? I'm repeatedly asked for my quake III CD key by the game. Something is bad in the design if this is the way quake is designed. If it was designed that way they need to modify it due to the fact that Quake III is now very old as games go. I like quake III and all but repeatedly throughout the night asking me for my key is stupid programming to say the least.
Is there something I'm missing? I would certainly like to not have to deal with this issue ever again. There has to be something wrong.
I have installed quake III per the instruction you find on the web and I've patched it by following the instructions to the letter.
Oh, and what's up with having each user account download maps? If user Joe hits a server and downloads a map, then later on Jane logs in and she plays that same server she has to download that same map again. That's twice the space for a map.
Anyway, pardon my frustration but I'm miffed at the constant requests
Punkbuster CD key issue with Enemy Territory
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 30, 2004
I've installed Enemy Territory without any grief, and the game runs fine (if a little jerkily at times - my system specs are not quite what I'd like).
But when I try to connect to a server, I get this perpetually on the in game console :
PunkBuster Client: Cdkey Registration Request sent to GuidAuth Master at 126.96.36.199:27960 (1853826324)
PunkBuster Client: File /home/neil/.etwolf/etmain/etkey Deleted due to Empty CDKey
The tech support at evenbalance (who own Punkbuster) have not been efficient in their helpfulness. Perhaps someone on the forum has a solution?
AntiMicro gamepad key mapping program
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 26, 2013
I wanted to bring up that I made a program to replace QJoyPad since people have had several issues with it and QJoyPad hasn't been updated in over three years. The program is called AntiMicro. Besides fixing several issues that QJoyPad has had, there are some additional features that are very useful for certain games. Some of those features are multiple key presses per button press (Shift+Tab for use when playing games on Steam), support for conditional actions such as a hold action (useful for prone in the Call of Duty games), and set changing support for changing button configurations on the fly.

Game programming non blocking key input
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 16, 2009
Hi, I've been to a zillion websites where this question was asked but nobody actually gave a satisfying answer.
Am working on Linux...using C++ and compiling with g++.
You could also skip to the last paragraph I've typed.
I'm making a game and I need the monsters to continuously keep moving. When the user shoots by pressing the up arrow key, the bullet function is called.
if (k==up_arrow_key) shoot();
The program shouldn't reach the "k=keyJustPressed();" line and wait till the user presses a key. It should just check if there's any information to read from the keyboard buffer and if there isn't then it should go on to the next line.
People have suggested getch() and alternatives to it. But there's no conio.h in linux. The mygetch() in linuxquestions.org faq won't do the job coz it waits for the user's input.
Found a piece of code which closely matches what I need, but it cou
Detecting Arrow Key Presses in C / C++
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 4, 2004
I am currently writing a program with a buffered input, when you hit return the last command is stored in a linked list and you can scroll up and down through your history.
A duplicate of the shell history in linux. Unfortunately I am unable to get my program to recognise a key press by the up and down arrows.
I have tried a few things, no success so far, was wondering if anyone had any suggestions?!
