How to Reset Ubuntu Network Without Reboot
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 20, 2008
Once in a while my home wireless network burbs, and I need to reconnect. . Kubuntu's network manager tries to reconnect to my network and hangs.
I have tried /etc/init.d/networking restart, and this does not cause a reconnect.
All I want to do is bring the network down and restart it without rebooting. Doing things like this is what makes Linux great; I'm just trying to research the steps.
How to reset Xfce to "factory" settings in Etch ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 18, 2007
My 2 Etch boxes are doing perfect, thanks to the help of some posters here. On one of the boxes, I experiment problem in Xfce : I am missing the "window frame" (the bar on top of the window, with the "minimize", "maximize" and "close" buttons).
I think it is because the first time I used Xfce, its default resolution was 1280x1024, on a 17" CRT monitor that is better under 1024x768 res'... So I booted under Gnome, edited xorg.conf, and all was fine... Except that Xfce behaves funny.
I have to mention that it is only the case under my own user account. When I boot Xfce under my wife's account, it is absolutely fine.
So here's my question :
-Is there a way to reset Xfce to its "factory" settings , or its default configuration ?
Thanks in advance for your advices,

How to reset/restart a tty from another tty?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 20, 2008
I tried using the TMOUT shell variable to achieve an automatic logout after a certain time of inactivity. This is working well in pseudo terminals (/dev/pts/...): when the time expires the shell window closes.
In ttys, however, the shell performs the logout as expected, but then does not show the login prompt and remains somehow frozen; if logged as ordinary user I can not write anything, while if logged as root I can write but anything I write (escape char included) produces any effects at all except appearing on the screen.
I suppose the terminal does not automatically restart after the automatic logout.
Is this a normal behaviour (I'm running Fedora9)?
How can I fix it?
And, by the way, how can I restart or reset a tty from another one?
Thanks for any help

First hard reset required ever in Linux (11.10)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 15, 2011
After using different distros for years, today I had to do my very first hard reset from an OS freeze. This is from a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.10 after configuring how window tiling works (compizconfig-settings-manager). I'm not even able to ctrl-alt-F2 to another TTY. Completely frozen.
I do not like the direction Ubuntu is going (bulky, hardware intensive, and unstable), and I hope the recent stability problem is because 11.10 is new and needs more bug fixes. If that's the case I may give Ocelot another chance.
Does anyone else feel Ubuntu is less reliable now than it has been in the past?
