I am looking for some software to allow my wifi windows mobile phone to act as a remote control for ubuntu. I am really looking to only control mp3 / audio with the phone but any extra functionality would be useful.
Is this possible, or do i need to load some kind of windows VM?
Can't get temp info on my LCD using LCDd & lcdproc
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 8, 2009
I have a working 2x16 LCD in my computer case (HD44780 running LCDd and lcdproc).
I would like this display to show the temperature readings of both my CPU and motherboard. I found a perl script to display temperature readings on this LCD, but my problem is that the script expects all temperature data can be found at the same location, whereas the temperature sensor for the CPU is located at:
and the motherboard sensor is located at:
How can I adjust this script to get both CPU and motherboard readings on my LCD?
I have tried
my $chip='/sys/bus/pci/drivers/k8temp/0000:00:18.3' & '/sys/devices/platform/it87.552'
Both don't work. I'm sorry, I'm a Perl nOOb

I sometimes get HUGE size font on the web and some programs in my Laptop, please help
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 12, 2003
This is kind of funny.
After I installed linux on my laptop, I noticed that when I tried to run Openoffice, I get this super HUGE font size, and I can't use openoffice because all I can see is the "FILE" from the menu on the window, and this takes up the entire screen.
Another example is the Linuxquestions.org free Mail login.
the login is damn HUGE!!!!!!!, the input boxes are the size of my screen, and all I can see is the login box.
How do I change this in my laptop?, I checked the font manager and everything is okay in there. Why do I get these sometimes HUGE windows and fonts?
Can anyone help?, thanks in advanced!

Can't get SSH working outside my network
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 5, 2014
So here's the deal. I've got Ubuntu server running in a VM in Virtualbox with a bridged adapter on a static IP. My router has port 22 forwarded to that static IP (192.168.1.10). I can not get SSH working outside my network.
I know my ISP is not blocking port 22, I know my router is forwarding port 22 correctly, and I know virtualbox is not messing up port forwarding, because for testing purposes, I loaded up a VM of Windows 7 and installed an SSH server program called Bitvise SSH server and I was successfully able to see port 22 on the WAN set up that way, so I know now it's not my ISP, it's not my router.
For my router situation, I was previously using a Linksys EA2700 as my router, but I was still having the same issues with getting SSH to work even through port 22 was set up for my servers static IP. I swapped the router out for an older WRT54G I had that has Tomato 1.28 firmware installed so hopefully that would give me more control, fix the problem, or just give
Run .py script in /etc/pm/sleep.d to get my headphones to keep working when I close my laptop
location: linux.com - date: November 20, 2014
Toshiba P205 laptop with Linux Mint 17 and cinnamon.
The headphones port would not work. I ran HDA Analyzer and checked EAPD, created a script "audio.py" from there and managed to run it on reboot in r-local.
I'd like to run it in /etc/pm/sleep.d so my headphones can still work on resume.

Can I make my laptop an access point?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 26, 2011
First of all I'm sorry if this post sounds really stupid but i'm new in ubuntu and also don't have much experience in networks.
I run a 10.04 on a HP Pavilion with onboard network adapter Broadcom BCM4318. A while ago I also got a usb network adapter from Realtek (RTL1878 ) because the wifi signal is too weak for the onboard one, and it works fine.
The problem now is that i'm the only one getting connection from the RTL, while the rest of the devices in the house (phones and other PCs) stay unconnected.
Q1: Is there any way I can make my laptop a wifi access point using the onboard adapter?
Q2: If not, is there any wifi router that can be connected directly (or through my HP) via USB to the Realtek adapter? What softwere sould I need?
Q3: If the above are impossible what other choices do I have?
Thanks a lot,
PS: I tried to find a solution in the forum before posting but didn't get any results... thanks for help
How to convert my laptop with Windows Vista to Linux base?

I want to learn Linux, so thinking about to convert my laptop from Vista to Linus. Please show me what are the right steps to do this.
Why can't my laptop charge batteries or run on AC power?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: March 21, 2011
I have a broken ThinkPad T61. It ran hot and died while on AC power. When I attempted to boot it, I got the BIOS message "Fan error." I'm assuming that something got too hot and broke as a result of the fan dying.
Now I cannot run the machine on AC power or charge the battery. However, when I use a battery charged by another computer, the machine runs with no apparent problems. I guess the machine could overheat since the fan is broken.
Am I right in assuming that the fan broke, or is something else going on? What can I do about it?
UPDATE: After the laptop cooled down and it was dropped on the floor (that part was unintended), it can again run on AC power. Fan is dead, that is for sure. I am starting to doubt that there ever was an AC problem, but it was just the BIOS that blocked for boot since fan would not spin (fan error outputted to screen).
So fan needs replacement. Found this guide:
How to install a Linux on my Windows Vista laptop?

I want to install a Linux on a VM on my Windows Vista at home. I don't want dual boot. Some posts pointing me to this Virtual Appliance Marketplace. Is this the right thing for me to download?
I just want to run some simple applications like CVS and Subversion.
