Is there an easy way to install Gqrx so I can get my SDR on?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 17, 2014
I picked up an RTL-SDR dongle a few months ago and in order to get Gqrx working I had to move from Point Linux 2.3(Debian Stable) over to Kali Linux which had it pre-installed then I moved to Manjaro Xfce which had Gqrx in the AUR. Now I've moved to Ubuntu MATE' for reasons I don't need to get into here BUT I'd like to be able to run Gqrx so I can play with my SDR dongle again. Is there any PPA's or anyway that I can get it installed other then having to try and compile it from source? Thanks.
[SOLVED] Can not get LIRC working on my Slackware 13.3x and Creative LiveDrive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 10, 2012
Slackware is the best and I'm slackware fan, but for all the last time I have just only one trouble.
I have Creative Audigy soundlaster card with LiveDrive and IR remote, but I can not get it working on 13.x 64bit slack. Any slackware realise before I did it like described here http://www.develia.org/documents.php...=lirclivedrive and it ALWAYS was working for me! Now I can not just get any signal from my IR.
How I did:
1) put lirc.conf to /etc/modprobe.d/
to boot snd_emu10k1 with enable_ir=1 option.
How can I get cmake to find my boost installation
location: linuxexchange.com - date: July 3, 2010
I have installed the most recent version of boost in /usr/local (with includes in /usr/local/include/boost and libraries in /usr/local/lib/boost) and I am now attempting to install Wt from source, but cmake (version 2.6) can't seem to find the boost installation. It tries to give helpful suggestions about setting BOOST_DIR and Boost_LIBRARYDIR, but I haven't been able to get it to work by tweaking these variables.
The most recent error message that I get is that it can't find the libraries, but it seems to indicate that it is using "/usr/local/include" for the include path, which isn't correct (and I can't seem to fix it). Does anybody have a solution for this off the top of their head, or do I need to go mucking around inside cmake to figure it out?
In gnome w/ xmonad, how can I call a script when a monitor is plugged in OR when docking my laptop?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 26, 2012
I have an extra set of top and bottom gnome-panels for a second monitor. When I undock my lenovo Thinkpad (T510), the extra top and bottom panels remain, so I have two on top and two on the bottom. I am currently running a RHEL6/Fedora (x86_64) gnome (2.28.2) instance with xmonad (0.9.1-6.1.el6) set as the window manager, using the xmonad extensions to work within gnome.
I've used acpi and found a code for docking and undocking, but when I try to utilize a script I found in this blog post, it gets zero for the call to xrandr. The script works when called on its own from the terminal. I've tried calling a separate looping script in its own thread and it keeps getting zero for the value, long after the screen(s) update(s).
I have figured out how to have a script loop every X seconds and check for a file which is touched into existence in the event of the script getting a zero, then performing the necessary change, but I don't like that approach.

Can't install on my laptop
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 2, 2008
Can anyone help help me. I've got a laptop I used to run XP on. My girlfriend got a new laptop, so I thought it was time I tried to install Ubuntu on the old one. It is set to boot from CD, it loads the splash screen - but then everything stops. Tried out a couple of other distros as well, but to no avail - the same thing happened there.
Or, is it possible to somehow install Ubuntu without waiting for X Windows to load??

How can I quickly create a LAMP development server on my laptop?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I recently took up PHP development, and am trying to find a comfortable development environment. I have been trying to work in a windows 7 x64 environment, but am finding a lot of issues with writing PHP on a windows system (much less a 64-bit windows system)
I currently have 3 systems I can use at home. A desktop, a netbook, and a laptop. I also have a shared hosting account at dreamhost.com
I have been developing on my main desktop (win 7x64) and netbook (win 7x64) with a remote SQL server and SVN server hosted on dreamhost.com. This is fine, but I would really like to have my applications running on a linux server at home (to simulate / dry launch before I push them to my dreamhost account)
I haven't used my laptop in a year, and think it could be used as a mock-production server. I could store my SQL, SVN, and 'live' application there - and have the freedom to change distros / server configuration - which is inherently more difficult with my shared hosting account.
Can anyone r
