How does one install ATI Radeon HD 7730 (64 bit) driver on Debian?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 21, 2012
I am new to Linux (and all its commands) and definitely new to Debian as well.
I have just installed the 64bit version of Debian 6.0.6 on my PC and would like to learn how to install drivers for my ATI Radeon HD 7730 video card.
I have downloaded AMD Catalyst 12.10 Proprietary Display Driver (Linux x86_64) from AMD's website ( http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...eon_linux.aspx )
Then I surfed over to the unofficial AMD Linux community website ( http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/12.10 ) and looked at the specific requirements for Catalyst 12.10. They are:
How does one make an old sony BIOS use USB flash drive [stick] for booting.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 18, 2011
I'm definitely a newbie. I'm an old one though. I probably have not done any serious programming for 20 years, not counting a little HTML.
I stumbled onto an old FREESPIRE disk my bro sent me several years back -- and tried installing it on a Sony Vaio PCG FRV 28 I had crashed a few years back. The Sony bios is still aboard, but old enough to not have USB "booting" as part of the boot menu. I don't even know if one can easily hack into the BIOS on an old sony Vaio but changing the BIOS would solve lot of problems.
Does anyone have any ideas or certain knowledge on rewriting or modifying the Master Boot Code or an idea on making my USB [with Ubuntu or any other Linux implementation
visible] and bootable to the bios on powerup?
How does one calculate folder sizes in linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 23, 2004
What command(s) do I need to run in order to see calculated folder sizes in linux. My OSX box does this through the GUI. I have a linux server running that I am learning on and I'd like to beable to calculate the folder sizes.
I can run ls -lR and that shows me recursively the contents of a dir but I just need to know the calculated sizes.
What I need to get is
I'm planning on piping the output to a text file for later use. Any suggestions would be great.
How does one get steam game running in x screen 1

Trine 2 runs fine on display 0. How does one get it to run on the projector which is display 1? I'm not a script writer but the following code starts Trine 2 on display 0.
# Run Trine 2 game on display :0.1.
# put the mouse to display 1.
`xwit $ARGS -root -warp 520 1080`
cd "/home/theatre/.steam/steam/SteamApps/common/trine 2"
# put the mouse back.
`xwit $ARGS -root -warp 520 540`
I'm running the separate x screen option under nvidia x server settings in Kubuntu 12.04. Not quite sure what I'm doing, hints greatly needed. Thanks
How does one set the default applications in Xubuntu?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 29, 2011
I have read that you go to System > Administration but I dont have that menu option. I have Settings > Settings Manager. But when I go there, there is no option for choosing the default applications for things like video and audio.
For example, when I click on a video file, a player called banshee opens but I dont want banshee, I would like parole or xine.
how does one learn PHP?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 20, 2011
I'm an ultra n00b who has exremely deep philosophical questions such as why the following doesn't do anything on my default Ubuntu LAMP server:
<?php echo “Hello World!”; ?>
Where can I get some hand-holding?
Update: wow apparently the code goes into a .php file, that was like sooo deep. Anyway, I'd appreciate advice on how best to learn and where to ask questions.
How does one search this forum by poster?
location: linux.com - date: April 24, 2011
I've been getting these New Friend Requests but I don't make friends that easily. I would at least like to see what the person has been posting on this site. The search functions on this never find anything. Why not??? (Try searching for anyone but yourself and see).
VMware Server virtual network. How does one set it up?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 24, 2007
I've looked on the 'Net and cannot find a simple howto on setting up a virtual network using Linux as the host and win98 as the guest.
In order to be able to use an HP scanner and its windows software (that works much faster and produces far superior results than Sane/Xsane) I've set up win98 in a VMware Server virtual machine.
I would like to be able to go to the virtual machine from the Linux host and pull the .pdf files over to the Linux partition or while in win98 as guest move the files to the Linux host. Either way is OK as long as I can get the files to the Linux partition.
I have two books on Linux and read what I can find on the 'Net about VMware, but it doesn't seem to apply in this situation.
If someone could point me toward some documentation that is written in plain English it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much.
How does one test the disk surface of the swap partition?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 12, 2003
I'm using RH 8.0. I get a "segmentation fault" anytime I try to run Gnome's system monitor, and the lock screen function doesn't do anything. I'm assuming some hardware has failed, and I've tested every hard disk partition except the swap partition using fsck -c -c. How do I test the swap partition? If I find it is OK, should I assume by ABIT BH6 motherboard or Celeron 300 is to blame, and buy a new motherboard and processor? Thank you for any suggestions.
How does one install Zsh
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 8, 2006
Initial Warning: I'm a super newbie, so please consider this if you respond. I need lots of hand holding..
I need to install Zsh. I have downloaded it to my desktop of my linux machine. The file name is: zsh-4.2.6.tar.gz
My GUI desktop is that one with the "K" and the gear logo. hahaha please don't laugh..
Where do I install it? Do I install it in root? Or some other directory? Right now it is sitting on my desktop.
