unable to send messages to remote computer using notifysend
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 1, 2010
I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on two of my laptops. I want to send message from one of them to the other using notify-send. I have connected to the remote laptop using ssh as -
$ ssh -X 192.168.1.x
after entering the appropriate password the ssh connection to the remote laptop is established. Then I enter the following commands -
$ export DISPLAY
$ export XAUTHORITY
$ sudo -u username /usr/bin/notify-send "Hello" (where username is the username on the remote system)
after which I get the following message -
libnotify-Message: Unable to get session bus: /bin/dbus-launch terminated abnormally with the following error: No protocol specified
Autolaunch error: X11 initialization failed.
I have been breaking my head on this for a long time now but there is no further progress. Any suggestions?
Thanking in advance,
Speeding up MySQL reads using noatime
- date: May 15, 2009
Here's a little secret not many Linux administrators know:
If you don't care about post-mortem analysis of a system and just want it to perform much faster, especially if you're running MySQL just remount the partition where your databases are stored with the noatime option:
]# mount -o remount,noatime /var/lib/mysql
This will improve the system I/O by at least 25%.
The only drawback is that none of the file's atime (access time) will be updated.
HOWTO: Read UPnP Media Server with another computer using djmount
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 3, 2008
djmount is a program that will mount a media server to your system just like any other file system. It's perfect for small laptops on which you can't store music but still want to be able to play media like movies, pictures and music from (that's the exact reason why I battled, learned and shared this with you).
That means, if you have one computer with a fairly large hard drive with a lot of media, that computer can act as a media server (don't worry, It won't render your computer inoperable). That way, all other computers in the local area network can access this computers media files through your network.
First of all you need a good media server. If you don't have any good media server, you can try MythTV or as I would reccommend: MediaTomb (installing instructions can be found here)
Enough rambling for now, let's get going.
1) Download and install FUSE
FUSE is required by djmount to function properly. To be exact, djmount is actually built upon FUSE but with a simpler interfac
Best Server Operating System For Using Zimbra

What would be the best operating system to use to host a zimbra server?
Or is there any other MS exchange alternative, I did google linux exchange alternative but only find zimbra.
I need something that is open source which will run as a mail server with shared calenders that will work with MS Outlook on my win xp PC's
preferrably it needs to be something simple & easy to set up as i currently do not have a lot of time available to me
is any of that possible??
Any help and comments would be appreciated!
Terminal Server Client to Windows using alt F4
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 17, 2011
I am using OpenSuse 11.4 tsclient to connect to a Windows Server box. I want to use Alt+F4 within the Windows session to close an application, but instead, Alt+F4 closes the tsclient session. I want to send all keystrokes to the Windows session.
How do I do that?
UNIX server with SQL Server 2005 support
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 2, 2011
I'm about to start a company, but here in Portugal sales software must have a national certification to be legal, the one's I've found so far all of them only support SQL Server 2005/2008 or Access. Since there is none supporting Linux and MySQL and due to high costs of implementing Microsoft solutions I need a mid-term solution.
The sales software I have is Gespos Retail, from Sage. It supports only Windows and MS SQL Server 2005 / Access databases.
Is there a way to have a UNIX server to host both a website (which will query the SQL database locally) and a MS SQL Server 2005 database running 24/7?
I also intend to use xubuntu on low end machines to run Gespos through Wine, any recomendations on this? As anyone tried something similar?

Unable to log into Gnome or KDE using gdm (Debian sarge)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 22, 2003
I am not able to log into Gnome or KDE. I have the latest version of netinstall (12-17-03) for Debian sarge, everything was installed last night. When I attempt to log into Gnome (as a user or as root) the session times out in 10 seconds. This is at the bottom of the log file generated:
line 90: xrdb: command not found
line 90: xrdb: command not found
/usr/bin/gnome-session: No such file or directory
When I try to log into KDE I get an error message that asks if the dcopserver program is running. It will let me log in but then dumped me back out.
Also, how does one get hold of the error messages/log files from Windows so that I might copy & paste them here? This is my only functional operating system until I can get Linux to work for me.
Thanks for the assist!
