removing virtualbox icon from dash home
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 21, 2013
Hi. I recently installed virtualbox on my computer. I am running ubuntu 12.10. I had some issues with it so I did some research. It seems I have possibly installed the wrong version of virtualbox, version 4.1 I want to install version 4.2, but I am told to uninstall the other version first. I thought I got rid of everything, but the virtualbox icon still appears in the dash home. I tried dragging it to the trash, with no luck. When I try to uninstall it through the terminal it tells me that the program is not installed. I'm a bit confused. I don't want to install the 4.2 with that icon still there. I'm not sure how it would affect anything. Is it possible for the program to be totally gone and that icon still stuck in dash home for lack of a better term?
Might I add that I am very new to linux, but am enjoying learning how to use it. It would be nice to be rid of windows all together some day. Not sure if that will happen for me, but we shall see.

removing sticky bit from mounted partition

I'd trying to add a file to an OS X partition (mounted as NFS) from within Linux (Fedora Core 6). I can mount the volume and see its contents, but I cant write to it. I've tried "chown" and "chmod -R 0777", and everything returns errors:
Removing Double Quotation From Python String
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 8, 2009
Does anyone have examples for removing (") characters from python strings?
stream = sys.stdin
line = stream.readline()
mylist = 
mylist = line
line = stream.readline()
The line.strip works, but not the line.replace. I want to remove double quotation marks from names (first name, last name), so these quotes will not be uploaded into my informix database.
Removing several lines from a text file
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 14, 2013
I have a small text file, test.txt, like this:
I want to remove the text starting with pattern1 and ending with pattern2. Both patterns are unique but the number of intervening lines and their content may vary. How do I do so?
perl -p -i.bak -e 's/pattern1.*pattern2//s' test.txt
because I read that use of the second "s" would allow "." to include line returns but this doesn't work. There are no error messages. I just get back the prompt and the file is unchanged and is the same as text.txt.bak.
In case it matters, I'm using Lubuntu 12.10 without any special programming software installed.

I switched CD ripping programs recently, and the first one didn't organize my music in folders. The new one does, so I did it manually. What I have now is:

Removing a user from admin group to restrict sudo
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 23, 2011
I was going to ask this but ended up figuring it out
I could not remove my second user account from the admin group with the GUI. They could still use update, install, apps etc. The sudo command still worked even though the user appeared to be removed from the group in the interface.
First I changed the primary group
usermod -g <group> <user>
I just used the users group
deluser <user> <group>
now it works fine, not sure if I changed anything else but it should be all set. If it is messed up I will type in
adduser <user> <group>
Huge piles of disk with LVM and/or RAID GPT/GUID??
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 18, 2007
I want to hang a hardware array of about 9 TB of storage on a SlackWare 12 server, but I'm using SCSI to connect to the disks.
I know that SCSI will not let me allocate more than 2 TB per LUN. I also know that LVM and software RAID will let me combine a few pieces of storage into a single manageable unit. I can't seem to find what the limits of this combination might be, but I've asked that question over on the server forum.
I also heard that 64-bit Linux distros can use GPT partitioning to address larger volumes than a 32-bit OS can handle.
Can SlackWare 12 be configured to use this partitioning scheme somehow? If so, where can I find some documentation on this process?

location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 11, 2014
I have an older Dell desktop running debian wheezy that I was using to run samba and transmission remote, I ended up removing vmlinuz and now it does not boot. I was wondering if there was a way to clone the server's home partition to another drive?;its an LVM and ive been having trouble mounting it a 300GB LVM container containing my /home partition.
