Which Ubuntu version do you use? At least on 14.04 gufw already comes with a desktop file, /usr/share/applications/gufw.desktop. These are its contents: [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Name=Firewall Configuration Comment=An easy way to configure your firewall Categories=GNOME;GTK;Settings;Security;X-GNOME-Settings-Panel;X-GNOME-SystemSettings; ...

by running sudo chmod -x * -R you just removed execution rights to everything under your current directory, including subdirectories. This should not prevent to open files in the current directory for editing or reading, but this prevents you to open subdirectories and the files inside. You do not have to fiddle with "root" user. Just run the following : ...

You want cron, which is the age old unix daemon for running scheduled jobs. Gnome-schedule only runs in your gui session as you, and so won't be able to run commands with sudo since you aren't there to type the password. Insert a file in /etc/cron.d/ to schedule a job to be automatically run as root at specified times. To shutdown at 10:30 pm each ...

That literally means it can't find the file. ./install.sh means execute a file in the current directory called install.sh. If you're not in the right directory, you won't have an install.sh to execute and that'll exhibit the error you see. Simply put, you're not following your instructions correctly. If you've extracted an archive from Intel, you likely ...

You appear to be using an outdated End Of Life (EOL) version of Ubuntu, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal. Upgrade to a newer version. Latest Long Term Support release is 14.04. Also, please consider using pastebin next time rather than One Drive. Not sure about on a PC, but annoying on mobile. Edit: If this was a fresh install, rather than update process ...

sudo su executes su as if you were the root user. That means, the shell that is opened is the shell given in the entry of the user in /etc/passwd in the 6th field. In case of your systems root user it might be /bin/fish. That shell is executed as login shell, so the rc-scripts of the root user are executed. When you execute sudo fish, then the application ...

sudo su su - change user ID or become superuser sudo bash bash - GNU Bourne-Again SHell sudo fish fish - is a smart and user-friendly command line shell for OS X, Linux, and the rest of the family. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_shell#Shell_categories Bourne-Again shell (bash) and Friendly interactive shell (fish) both are shell types.

This is a little nasty but it's worked for me in the past and has the added advantage of re-setting your root password. It wasn't an Ubuntu system I did this with but the principle remains the same. Boot off of a live CD, I assume this will mount your existing linux partitions. If not you'll need to mount them manually. From the shell $ cp ...

You will need to boot off your installation media again to fix this problem. You need to gain root write access to the partition containing your Ubuntu install, so boot off the installation media (CD or USB) and mount your ubuntu partition temporarily. $ sudo bash # mkdir /mnt/ubuntu-main # mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/ubuntu-main Of course, replace /dev/sda1 ...

Try editing your /etc/hosts as follows : 127.0.0.1 server.example.com 127.0.1.1 server.example.com server ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback server.example.com fe00::0 ip6-localnet ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix ff02::1 ip6-allnodes ff02::2 ip6-allrouters Try executing sudo su now and see if it makes a difference.

So, dpkg is trying to overwrite /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libply.so.2.1.0, which is already there and brought by the package libplymouth2:i386. My suggestion is to uninstall libplymouth2:i386 first, then run sudo apt-get remove -f and afterwords again install the package you jsut uninstalled. Hopefully that will help.

Create file /etc/sudoers.d/any-descriptive-name-here with such content: user ALL = NOPASSWD: /bin/ln -s /source/location /destination/location This allows user execute command /bin/ln -s /source/location /destination/location without password. Require password or not, create user list, allow by group, etc. - see man sudoers Also note that delegating sudo ...

You need to understand what sudo does. Quoting the Wikipedia page : sudo (/ˈsuːduː/ or /ˈsuːdoʊ/) is a program for Unix-like computer operating systems that allows users to run programs with the security privileges of another user (normally the superuser, or root To explain further, it gives your program access to the core, sensitive files of your ...

Once you have installed the openvpn package, you need to configure it accordingly. (for other readers, the files inside an installed package can be listed with dpkg -L openvpn.) I can recommend you to use Network Manager which has an OpenVPN plugin. There you can put the certificates, host, etc. of your VPN provider. If you have none and want to setup the ...

The deb file that is downloaded and installed when you run apt-get install is basically a build of the source code with most options already set. This includes the location where it would be installed, probably /usr/some_folder. This means you cannot change this location by using a deb file. The only way to do this is to get the source code, modify it and ...

open a terminal and type the following command sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list Now, scroll down to line 56. There is your problem. What is different about this line? Is there a typo somewhere? Did you add this line manually? To get around this problem, you can delete this line or comment it out by placing a # at the beginning of the line. After fixing ...

The other answers provided are quite good, but I would like to give an example and explain more of why it is used for installations. First of all, like the others have explained. tar -xzf is just a method for extracting. In installation instructions they will usually tell you the options to use since different options will be required for different archive ...

tar is the Swiss army knife of extracting archives. It can handle many different archives, such as tar.gz, tar.xz, tar.bz, tar.bz2, tar.lz ... Your command contains the following three options: -x = extract -z = gzipped archive -f = get from a file, not a tape drive To find more help on tar, enter tar --help or man tar in your terminal. So your ...

Depends on your setup sometimes... %domain\ admins ALL=(ALL) ALL %domain\\domain\ admins ALL=(ALL) ALL %domain\ admins@domain.com ALL=(ALL) ALL The last one is the one I actually had to use to get mine to work...I'm using sssd and realmd to join my domain. Many suggestions in the past showed using domain^admins but that has never personally worked for ...

I find it rather weird to suggest to disable the mpm-itk as there might be a reason why it is actually used. We use mpm-itk (version 2.4.7-02) with apache 2.4 and it works perfectly. The only thing to consider here are the new configuration directives LimitUIDRange and LimitGIDRange These directives define, which UIDs and GIDs mpm-itk can use (via ...

Are you sure that www-data needs to do chroot? Please explain why. There is no way to get /bin/chown to restrict UIDs. You will have to write a wrapper around /bin/chown that does the input validation, then calls the real /bin/chroot, then allow www-data access only to the wrapper.
