You need to use NoDM - this is a window manager that supports only 1 window. Start with server installation, then install xorg nodm firefox. That would be enough. Then create a separate user for kiosk, and in its home a file .xsession #!/usr/bin/env bash firefox Run browser with startx command.

Maybe take a look at Remmina Remote Desktop Client. It works pretty much exactly like Windows RDP: you can interact with the remote desktop GUI on your local machine as if the remote operating system were running on your local machine.

Be aware that your desktop version may not be the same if your desktop is a 32-bit machine and the server is a 64-bit machine (or vice versa). Also, kernel versions are updated as part of the Ubuntu software maintenance process - You might install a certain kernel version and this can be upgraded as part of the maintenance process.

If you want you can run XBMC on your server and use it for fileserver. I would advice to install a desktop distro with a desktop GUI instead of Ubuntu Server with no GUI. For example: I have a media center. Its a lubuntu 14.04 with XBMC, potato couch and transmision (as a torrent daemon), and samba for filesharing. I even have a owncloud server on it. Since ...

It might be 6 months too late but I had a similar issue where running dropboxd on a 14.04 server (no GUI) seemed to hang (no link provided). No guarantees the fix is the same, but this is what worked for me: I finally resolved it by going back a version in Dropbox. I replaced the dropbox wget command listed at their website ...

Your issue is that something between your VM and the 'outside' (that is, outside your computer) is blocking connections to the internet. You said you're using a Windows 7 host, and VirtualBox. Some steps to check: Make absolutely certain that your VM is set to either Bridged Mode (and linked to an actively-connected network adapter) or NAT. Check your ...

It seems that you can`t able to access Ubuntu archives (in.archive.ubuntu.com). May be you are not connected to the Internet. Change the VirtualBox network adapter to NAT mode. Then try again. NAT enables the Guest OS to access the Internet.

The stats you see are provided by a script that uses the output of landscape-sysinfo in the update-motd building process. It appears to not be installed by default in 14.04 anymore. Install landscape-common to have the stats re-inserted into the motd. (It might take 10 minutes for the cronjob to update the motd after installation).

There are multiple ways you can build and deploy OpenStack on Ubuntu: (easiest) use the OpenStack Autopilot. As you noticed, currently this requires 7 machines. Juju. You can use Juju to deploy and configure OpenStack services. You need to install MAAS and Juju, but you do not need to know about OpenStack as much. (hardest) Apt. follow the installation ...

The second and third lines of your script are unnecessary.

I would expect from an Ubuntu LTS release such as yours to have the latest stable version of all those software you mentioned. You are 2-years into the 5-years support period of your release, so I think this is a reasonable expectation. Upgrading to 14.04 doesn't seem like a great idea. Upgrading is a sensitive operation not to be taken lightly, potentially ...

Might be a little bit late but: Create the array using the block devices and not the file systems: mdadm --create --verbose /dev/md0 --level=raid1 --raid-devices=2 /dev/sdb /dev/sdd Create the partition on the newly created block device. I don't suspect there is really a performance difference between the two methods, but using the block devices just ...

OK, I had been using php 5.5.19+dfsg-1+deb.sury.org~precise+1 but, when I tried to install php5-mysql I got dependency issues.

You will have to enable the Port Forwarding in your High Speed Modem or Personal Router (if you have one).

Setup the rule to forward the port 22 traffic to your local server. This will make ...

Depending on what plan you choose from Crashplan, you can backup everything else in the house to the Ubuntu server and then the entire Ubuntu server to the cloud in Crashplan, or you can back up multiple machines to each other in the house and to the cloud as well (also using Crashplan) I got the Family plan which supports up to 10 computers so I do the ...

Instead of using 192.168.171.1, use 192.168.171.2. In VM 10, if you click on Edit, Virtual Network Editor, select VM8, under VMnet Information, select NAT, click on NAT Settings and there you'll find what your GW IP address is set to. When you find it, adjust your "eth0" gateway IP to that IP address.

The problem was memory usage. Apparently clamav-daemon uses about 300MB of memory when all the virus libraries loaded. I'm running on a small VPS with 1GB of RAM and mysql-server-5.6 takes up a big chunk of that. To improve performance I added performance_schema = off to /etc/mysql/my.cnf which reduced memory consumption by about 400MB! (why is this the new ...

Please confirm port forwarding which was done is working. If internal machine is working fine then it will refer local ip of the machine directly to access to machine on the port 22 If external ip couldn't ssh to the machine it could be a problem with port forwarding Telnet to the your external ip and check whether it connects to your local ip machine.

If I'm not mistaken, you can set your virtual disk size to "DYNAMIC" meaning it will offer up as much space as it needs instead of reserving any extra space it does not need.

best I could find on my own (and I'm a newbie) was just running 'apt-get check' for a clue as to how things turned out following an install. Also running 'script' prior to running an 'apt-get install' will capture all the output from the command to file so that you don't have to worry about it scrolling away.
