How to Install /Uninstall Linux fonts Graphical User Interface / Bash
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 18, 2010
Am a newbie on GNU/Linux, where I found the most amazing OS I could ever imagine..
I loved new fonts, so I installed a lot, without thinking they could be toooo many!
That's how I managed myself to install and uninstall Linux Fonts, using the graphical user interface (GUI):
(note: My OS are Kubuntu 9.10 and Linux Mint 7 AMD64 edition, in a Toshiba Laptop, but this HowTo is valid for many other OS)
First,I downloaded some "*.ttf" files (such as "serif.ttf", but some of them compressed into a "tar" archive) from the Ubuntu Artwork page.
Then, I extracted ONLY the ".ttf" files from the "tar.gz" files, and put my favorites in a single folder named "Downloaded Fonts", in my desktop.
Then I opened the File Browser in my computer, and went to "File System". Inside this folder, I opened the folder "usr", BUT using the right button of my mouse, and selecting from the menu: "open as root&q

[SOLVED] Attempt to install Cisco Linux VPN Client resulted in no wifi.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 20, 2011
I've just put Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop along side windows with a view to eventually completely moving over to Ubuntu. Just in case it's relevant my laptop is an Eee PC 1000H.
I attempted to install cisco linux vpn client using the instructions on my universities website. It didn't work and now I can't access the internet via wireless (tho' wireless still works in windows). I think some file was missing, the instructions said:
In order to build the VPN kernel module, you must have the
kernel headers for the version of the kernel you are running.
For RedHat 6.x users these files are installed in /usr/src/linux by default
For RedHat 7.x users these files are installed in /usr/src/linux-2.4 by default
For Suse 7.3 users these files are installed in /usr/src/linux-2.4.10.SuSE by default
I didn't really understand this so (stupidly) just carried on an hoped for the best.
First question: What is a kernel header? (I've googled it but it still doesn't make sense)
