how can i right click password protect a file/folder in ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 21, 2013
okay i have this text file in gedit in my desktop like for note keeping! i do not expect this file to be accessed by everyone! i need to password protect it. how can i do this in ununtu?
please do not suggest me the crypt-keeper! it's clearly i do not want to keep all the secret files inside the locked box called "crypt-keeper"!! the problem with that is you need to every time unlock that box to access anything inside; that's simply cumbersome!
what i plainly want is just right click the file and password protect that particular file so that when i next time double click on it to open; it asks for the password!!
and i expect the same to happen for folders even!
HOPE, i put it all simple

terminal command to open file w/ default program?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 14, 2008
Is there a command to open a file w/ the default program?
I ask because in python on windows there is os.startfile()
on linux there isnt one.
It is simply impossible to get the default program for all the files which my program will open, especially if it goes multi distribution
so basically I can call a terminal command w/ os.system()
so is there a command that can open it with the default program associated with the file extension?
like open the default webbrowser if it is .html (i just cant simply use firefox since not all linux distros have firefox installed by default)
or if the extension is .pdf open the default pdf viewer
or if the extension is .doc open the appropriate viewer/editor.
Libre Office Calc Won't Open File
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 9, 2011
Okay so I have a file that I always save and close properly and get in my Ubuntu One folder for backup that will not open. Its called "Income.ods" and is quite important and I cannot seem to recover it. When I double click it, it shows the Libre Office Calc splash screen shows up then goes away and the nothing, no error messages, no nothing. I tried to open it on my Windows Vista machine and it said it was corrupted and could not open in Office Word. I tried a few recovery tools but to no avail. Any thoughts?

Can gedit save open file instances?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 24, 2008
Subject line says it all. I use gedit to modify about 7 or so files for a mysql/php project. Opening them all individually is annoying. I know editors I've used in the past (like kate) could remember all the open files. I can't seem to find this functionality in gedit. Is it there?

How do you file share between Ubuntu & Windows XP dual boot?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 29, 2014
I am presently dual booting Windows XP and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. It is working well. But I would like to be able to access some files that are on one "side" (Windows or Ubuntu) of the PC with the other "side." I'd especially like to be able to create or download a file in Ubuntu and be able to use it in Windows. I am presently transferring such files from Ubuntu to Windows using a thumbdrive. But this is pretty inconvenient.
I've been trying to read posts in this forum and online, but it is not clear to me what a good and reasonable course of action would be. It seems that some posts suggest making a shared NTFS partition that is read only for one operating system. Another solution is in this post ( http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=469666 ) that suggests downloading and installing an application into each OS. These applications apparently allow one operating system to see the other.
QUESTION(S): Does anybody have good advice about how to file share between Ub

How to File Share in Ubuntu 10.04 Easily and using GUI's only.
Disclaimer: Sharing files in this way is not secure; so please make sure you only do this on a private network that has been properly secured. Otherwise any user on the network can access and modify your shared files; you have been warned!
1. "Applications" menu ->"Ubuntu Software Center" -> in the search box type "Samba" then install "Samba". (Because even though you enabled file share and tried to share the files 10.04 seems to not actually install "Samba". Plus this installs the "Samba" GUI.)
2. This step was removed to prevent confusion.
3. "System" menu -> "Administration" -> "Samba". Enter your password. In the GUI that opens up choose "Preferences" menu -> "Server Settings" then the "Security" tab change the authentication mode to share and the guest account to your user name acco
