Installed Ubuntu 12.04 - and happy with everything on how it works!
Going to have this machine running a webpage in a recption.
And want to remove all buttons/dialogs (notice of new updates) and more.
So the computer is as clean as possible - and only shows a webpage.
Can someone give me ideas / on what services to remove? will run the computer like "kiosk" installation.
For example removing cupsd...
Thanks for help,
What changes will I see moving from Ubuntu 12.04 to community ver. of Red Hat?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 14, 2013
I'm considering moving my main laptop from Ubuntu 12.04 to one of the community versions of Red Hat Linux, most likely Scientific Linux 6.3. These are the changes I'm expecting initially:
1. Different user interface. Scientific Linux uses a version of Gnome 2, while Ubuntu uses Unity.
3. .deb/apt vs. .rpm/yum
4. Less package availability in the SL repositories and therefore more compiling from source, e.g. Python 3.
4. Less up-to-date software in SL for stability reasons.
5. Media playback. I've read that SL doesn't really have problems with this, but I know personally that Ubuntu doesn't.
6. GRUB. Ubuntu uses grub2, but I believe SL uses grub legacy.
What else should I consider? My laptop is about two years old, so I presume driver availability won't be a problem.
I'm considering switching so I can use a RH-based distro as a base for a hardened system, so I'm hoping the package availability isn't too limited in SL, because I don't really want to compile many pa
Screen brightness changes twice in Xubuntu 12.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 2, 2012
I've just re-installed Xubuntu 12.04, and I'm running into all the same issues I've solved before.
My screen brightness changes twice every time I press the hotkeys for changing brightness. I think the hardware changes it once, then the software changes it again.
I think there's a setting somewhere to disable screen brightness changing, but I can't seem to find it (or find the solution online). Does anyone know where it is?
Thanks for any help.
How to automatically detect and backup changes to folder?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 24, 2009
Ok so here's the deal. I've got a main gaming desktop that I use all the time. I've also got an HTPC and a Fileserver. My dilemma is that I like to have my Music, Pictures, Videos, and other important data backed up onto the Fileserver (which is running Xubuntu).
I've gotten FTP, Samba, and everything setup correctly, can access it from outside the home network and stuff so I can stream music to my laptop when I'm on my college campus without having to take up so much hdd space on my laptop, as well as backup my programming and essay homework.
What I would like to do is have the fileserver automatically detect changes in my main desktops 1TB hard drive where all the Music, videos etc are originally from and then copy the new files to itself. Is there any way to have this done without it completely copying the whole folders over. I've found a guide on how to do it with rsync, but it basically copies the entire folder over again, and with 230GB worth of data, that's not worth it ev
Ubuntu Server needs to inform me of a new IP address when it changes
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 19, 2013
I am running an Ubuntu gaming server on my home network, behind a router and firewall. My ISP is Verizon, and my external IP address changes from day to day, rarely going a week the same. This makes it difficult for other people to access my server consistently, and requires me to get a complaint, go home, check my IP, and then tell them all. Verizon doesn't think I pay enough to have a static IP, and I agree.
How can I get Ubuntu to check what the external IP is, and then forward that information in the form of a text or email if the results have changed? I have rudimentary Ubuntu skills, and my reaction was to write a script checking the IP and then sending the updated address to an (e)mailing list of recipients. I would then have cron run the script every ten minutes or so.
1: Is that idea feasible?
2: Would someone help me write that script if so?
3: What is a better idea?

blue people in youtube!! or why the gamma changes in youtube
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 20, 2012
Well, here's the deal.
when I watch youtube in my recentrly installed ubuntu 12.04 the gamma is wrong. You know when people looks blue. I also had problems with setting the 2 screens I have, and here's how I solved it
Obviously i'm not satisfaid with the method, but I got them both working. An also I can see perfectly fine any video I paly in my computer. The problem is restricted to any video storing page like youtube, blip.tv and so on.
Also when I watch them embedded in a page or blog I see the gamma is right.
like the youtube embedded in this page looks ok.
Any ideas guys?

Exam question: disk quota changes when transferring from desktop to server
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 2, 2013
Hi all my friends;
Would you please help me with this question? I am really stuck :/
You have a Linux system that has a 1,000GB hard disk drive, which has a 90GB partition containing an ext4 filesystem mounted to the / directory and a 4GB swap partition.
Currently, this Linux system is only used by a few users for storing small files; however, the department manager wants to upgrade this system and use it to run a database application that will be used by 100 users. The database application and the associated data will take up over 200GB of hard disk space. In addition, these 100 users will store their personal files on the hard disk of the system. Each user must have a maximum of 5GB of storage space. The department manager has made it very clear that this system must not exhibit any downtime as a result of hard disk errors.
How much hard disk space will you require, and what partitions would you need to ensure that the system will perform as needed?
Changes in Ubuntu releases decided by the Ubuntu Technical Board
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 19, 2013
In yesterday’s meeting we covered two of the topics from Mark’s proposal to the Technical Board: Reducing the length of support for our regular (non-LTS) releases The rationale here is that it’s costing a lot of time to maintain all those releases for 18 months. It’s also causing a lot of load on the SRU [...]
