Does GetTickCount() include time spent suspended or hibernated?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: February 5, 2009
To clarify, I mean time spent while the system is suspended/hibernated, not the calling thread (GetTickCount() returns the number of milliseconds since system boot).
Time tracking software which will audit time spent on apps or docs?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 3, 2013
I'm trying to find software which will run unobtrusively in the background, and record the amount of time I spend in any app (judged by its window being active, and mouse/keyboard events occuring). So far the only apps I've found which work are rescuetime, and arbtt. I've checked out gnotime and hamster, but I've not the faintest idea how to set them up to record time spent in different apps - that is, if they can do that. I'm a bit wary of rescuetime, it being a commerical product (although with a free basic version), and arbtt, although it in fact works very well, is very bare-bones. I'm not interested in project management as such, just monitoring my time and my computer usage.
Do I have any other (open-source) options here? Some thing like ProcrastiTracker (which unfortunately is Windows only) would be wonderful.
How to measure CPU time spent on a code block (with C or C++)?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 31, 2011
Hi, I have a C program like this:
I want to know how much CPU time spent on CODE_BLOCK. Since the process executing CODE_BLOCK may be preempted during execution, this CPU time may not be equal to the (wall-clock) time elapsed from the beginning of CODE_BLOCK to the end of it.
Can anyone tell me how to do this?
Unity greeter user list does not include the users' pictures/photos
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 26, 2011
In Ubuntu 11.04 the login screen has the list of users accompanied with the pictures each user set in the properties of his or her user account (System Settings -> User Accounts).
Ubuntu 11.10 uses LightDM login manager with the Unity greeter (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/OneiricOcelot/ReleaseNotes) which does not show the users' pictures.
Ubuntu 11.10 help has a chapter titled "Change your login screen photo" which says: "When you log in or switch users, you will see a list of users with their login photos." So, is there a way to show the users' pictures/photos in Unity greeter?

Is there any glibc or generic API which return micro or milliseconds in linux kernel 2.6 and above?
I used time_t , but it returns current time in seconds only...
Firefox does not start on 64bit live or VM.
- date: March 3, 2014
I have tried three times to install a VM in Virtualbox 4.3.8 with a live .iso from the daily image site, downloaded 25 Feb using zsync, so I know the image file is fine. There have been no updatsd to the image since then to attempt a newer install.
Almost everything works but Firefox (version 25) will not load giving an error in terminal. This is actually copied from a live system running in VBox, but the installed VM gave exactly the same error, except for a different process pid. I am about to try running the live system on real hardware instead of in VBox so will report back shortly if things are any different in that situation.
(process:3200): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size ==0' failed
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
The 64bit Xubuntu daily, fully updated, works fine and is running in a VM as I speak, as does the 32 bit Lubuntu daily.
Any thoughts, or is it just a glitch of that particular day's Lubuntu 64 im
Default Ubuntu system does not include developement tools

Default Ubuntu system does not include developement tools. If you need
to do your own compilation for wine, or even the kernel yourself, it
will be a difficult task. You will have to download all the required
development tools and install them yourself. And... in most cases,
conflicts between the different libraries will eventually kill all your
I downloaded many distros and still stick to Fedora because I need to
compile programs in gcc. As a File Server, I would dare say SME Server
is the lightest. It all depends on your requirements. But... through
logical thinking, after a while, I may be more inclined towards Suse in
long term aspect.
Well... you can also obviously get it from their repository, in package
called 'build-essential', by simply running 'apt-get install
updategrub does not include btrfs linux os partition

Every time when I run update-grub it did not include os linux ubuntu installed on BTRFS partition into grub.cfg. (I have it in 40_custom file manually included).
Could anybody tell me what am I missing or how to force update-grub to generate grub.cfg including linux ubuntu installed on btrfs partition or explain why is not there ?
thank you for any clue.
Having a hard time deciding..Kubuntu or Mepis?!
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 13, 2006
I'm having a hard time deciding something. I've tried both Kubuntu and Mepis..and both are equally good. Mepis does seem just a bit slower than Kubuntu though..but I can't be positive. Both have fairly good tools.
I want to choose one for my main OS.
Kubuntu detected my monitor resolution why mepis didnt..that wasnt' too hard to fix though.
I like kubuntu's update/package manager system a bit better..but it can also be installed on mepis.
I like mepis's control center a bit better than kubuntu.
I CAN'T DECIDE .
Performance wise (and feel free to take other things into consideration), which do you guys prefer?
