I saw a post in Lifehacker that shows how to do it with OS X Snow Leopard. I tested in my Ubuntu 14.04 and it worked pretty well. You have to use an OSX86 ISO and your CPU needs to support hardware virtualization, or else this will not work. Lifehacker article mentions that you'll be needing around 1 GB of RAM and that the virtual hard disk size should be ...

The system is unbootable because the Mac bootloader expects the EFI partition to be formatted as HFS+, the typical Mac filesystem, while the Ubuntu installer actually formats it as VFAT. Refer to my earlier answer for detailed steps to install Ubuntu properly on a Mac.

A quick search on YouTube brought this video up as the first search result. I can't vouch for how helpful or accurate it is though (the person who made it mentions in the video that they are setting up a dual boot with Ubuntu 11.04, which is pretty old). This is a rather subjective question anyway, since there could be plenty of video tutorials available ...

Had the exact same issue. Try the following: sudo smbpasswd -a <username> #this should be your home account username on Ubuntu it should prompt you to set a samba password, which is stored separately to your Ubuntu passwords. You can set it the same as your Home user password if you wish, although it is not recommended. Then do: sudo nano ...

No, unfortunately there is no way to run Mac software on Ubuntu AFAIK. Wine only works with Windows software, so you're out of luck when it comes to that. However, you may be able to use a virtual machine (VirtualBox, VMWare Player, etc) to install OSX and use iLife that way.

download ubuntu-14.10-server-i386.iso and try again with it. You need to create a partition for install ubuntu. If you install in the partition where MAC has installed, then the Mac will be gone.

Artha dictionary also doing same job which I realized now. It sets ctrl+alt+W as the shortcut initially which you can change. And once you select a word and press those keys, the notification like thing pops up.

To answer your question though, "Operation not permitted" is what you will see when there is already a mount attached to the named folder "/Users/me/Remote" Using the Finder instead works fine, because it will instead mount the remote under /Volumes and not introduce that conflict.

I'm not sure if this is going to be an answer, but after reading and some comments, I have more ideas, and it's too much for a comment. Since I don't really know exactly how much you know about mounting drives, I may get too remedial at times, so forgive me if I seem to be talking down to you. I just don't want to assume too much. First of all, you don't ...

If they are on the same LAN, it should be possible to connect using IPs. The syntax for ssh is pretty simple. The minimum you need to specify is the target IP or hostname. The following are effectively the same for me: ssh github.com ssh 192.30.252.130 If you don't specify a username, your client's user is applied. So, for me, the above commands are the ...

I used unetbootin to create an Ubuntu 14.04 installation on a USB stick but had to go through some hoops to make it work. First is that the USB drive must be formatted as a vfat filesystem. That filesystem should be on the first partition, better if it's the only partition. Then mount the USB stick somewhere (change the device so that it is the drive letter ...

In my case, running Yosemite and the latest version of xquartz, going through ssh -X to CentOS 6.5 in VMWare Fusion, I could not resolve that problem with switching layouts. US and Russian layouts, in my case. When I started, for example, gnome-terminal, I just couldn't switch to my RU language, using any key combinations. So, after half a day of ...
