You could use something like that: file -F' ' --mime-type * | awk '$2 ~ /text\/plain/{print $1}' | xargs chmod 644 This changes all permissions to 644 if a file has the mime-type text/plain. Just replace the part in the awk body to whatever mime-type you wish. See /etc/mime.types for all available ones. Explanation: The -F' ' flag causes file to use a ...

It is always possible to delete EVERYTHING, start from scratch, and install a new Operating System (in fact this tends to be the easiest way to install an OS). This holds for Linux, Mac OS, and Windows. When you boot from the Windows Live Media (e.g. installation DVD) and choose an option similar to "Erase disk and install", it will delete EVERRYTHING on ...

ps axjf shows which process started it. Also this will show its pid, process id. Then use ls -l /proc/4043/cwd replacing 4043 with PID you are interesting it, this will show what is current directory of that wget. This is most likely place for saving downloaded data. Otherwise examine what parameters were passed to that wget by cat /proc/4043/cmdline ...

The driver iwlwifi usually creates an interface wlan0, not eth1. Check: ifconfig If you have no wlan0, something else is wrong and we should diagnose and correct it first: dmesg | grep iwl rfkill list all If there is a wlan0, then the correct sequence is: sudo ifconfig wlan0 down sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode master Please note that not all wireless ...

I have an Acer TravelMate 2410 and this is the solution that worked for me: Open 'Terminal' Type: sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf Add a new line at the end that says: blacklist wistron_btns Save the file (press 'ctrl+o' and then 'enter') Exit (press 'ctrl+x') Reboot the laptop. After you restart Ubuntu you can succesfully shutdown your laptop! ...

You're not running 14.04 as you indicated, but you're actually running 12.04. All the output you show support this scenario. Therefore, the proposed upgrade to 12.10 is valid. However, I recommend not to run this. Once on 12.10 you'll have to go through the long process of 12.10 → 13.04 → 13.10 → 14.04 to reach a supported release. LTS → LTS+1 upgrade path ...

Try this. Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below: sudo gedit /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.udisks2.policy When it opens look for <allow_active>auth_admin_keep</allow_active> and change it to <allow_active>yes</allow_active>

There is a low but relevant risk, that upgrading to another release will damage the data in your home directory or anywhere outside of system folders. Keeping a backup of important data in case of a hardware failure, a software bug, or a user error is a good idea anyway. There's a saying that “data without a backup is unimportant data.” You should always ...

Webapps do work in 14.04 LTS If they don't work for you, then you most likely have some missing packages. But I am running straight-up Unity Desktop whereas I now understand you are running Gnome Desktop. Well as far as I know these webapps are specifically for integration into Unity. They are not really desighed to work on Gnome. The package names all ...

Well, the problem is with the protocols used by Google. As a workaround use Google's Hangouts, that will work all the time without problems. Download it from here: http://www.google.com/hangouts/

My error was a logic error with -mtime. I thought my script was checking the names but -mtime checks for the date when the file was created. So my final code: DAYS_TO_KEEP=2 find $BACKUP_DIR -maxdepth 1 -mtime +"$DAYS_TO_KEEP" -exec rm -rf {} \; I just had to do a sudo touch -d "3 days ago" /filepath/folderToRemove to make -mname find the folder and make ...

Try installing some essential programs if you haven't.. C++ 2005/2008 Redistributable Package and perhaps .NET 2/3/3.5. That could be the problem. If that doesn't work, then I am not sure.. Never used MTA so can't help you there too. SAMP works great though :D

Turned out there is a simple solution: Make your toolbar position draggable, put I up to the top of your screen. The skype tray icon menu should now be full expanded. Move your toolbar back to where you want to have it. Sykpe menu is still full expanded. There is even a youtube video showing this

This is not really an answer but an advice... Downloading new version ISO image and making a BootDVD is better than Upgrading directly from lower versions to new ones. Because, The Upgrade you do in your ubuntu takes more time to download an install all the package repositories you've currently installed in your ubuntu. And that process downloads the ...

Just using a simple custom toolbar produces a more modern/minimalist feel (without any loss of functionality, since the less-common features are still in the menu): To create a custom toolbar: Disable all of the default toolbars from View > Toolbars Go to Tools > Customize > Toolbars and create a new toolbar with only the commands that you personally ...

Without this directive everything outside of ...

Had the same problem as you with a recent Ubuntu update. Updating VirtualBox to 4.3.20 worked for me. Download the deb file for Ubuntu 14.04 here: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads Then uninstall VirtualBox 4.3.18 and install new version: sudo apt-get remove virtualbox sudo dpkg -i virtualbox-4.3_4.3.20-96996~Ubuntu~raring_amd64.deb ...

The answer is almost certainly yes. If you want to be really certain, you can wipe the whole drive from the first sector to the last. With your Ubuntu boot disk in, you can do the following from a terminal: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdx x corresponds to the letter associated with your hard drive. It will almost certainly be "a" if it's the only hard ...

I believe your CATALINA_BASE is incorrect it runs out of the /var/lib/tomcat7 directory and CATALINA_HOME is proper in regards to how you have declared the variable. Add CATALINA_HOME and CATALINA_BASE to /etc/default/tomcat7 along with JAVA_HOME and JRE_HOME. That executable notifies the tomcat servlet of how the environment is set upon start up of the ...

The fix here: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Category:T510 worked for me after a restart. Just be sure to backup your xorg.conf file beforehand (you can find it in /etc/X11/) My xorg.conf looks like this now in its entirety, and it works fine: Section "Device" Identifier "Default Device" Driver "nvidia" Option "NoLogo" ...
