comment How to test rkhunter to make sure its functioning well?
If you don't understand what I'm trying to say (SCAN when the system is clean. SAVE logs. Run rkhunter later, save those results. COMPARE those results from the CLEAN SCAN items, any changes may indicate infections or changes done by system updates), then you should not be using rkhunter, likely.

Then you record the current state of the machine, then later run rkhunter and compare to see if there were any changes. Sometimes changes happen due to software updates, so you have to keep track of those - that's the only real way to determine if rkhunter is working.

You actually have to set up rkhunter BEFORE you are infected, when you have a known clean system. You then run scans and compare it with the 'clean' state to determine if you have any system infections or compromises in it.

comment How to remove ccp when installed from binary?
@JIri how did you install it? apt-get install, or dpkg -i with a downloaded .deb? Or did you compile from source with make and make install ?

comment Why don't the Ubuntu repositories have the latest versions of software?
@dr01 There are distributions that have rolling distributions which always get updates - therefore not all distributions conform to this question or the Ubuntu development cycles

comment How to upgrade poppler-utils to latest version?
Similarly important as to why apt-get install didn't update the software: Why don't the Ubuntu repositories have the latest versions of software?

comment Win7 Blue screen when Ubuntu 14.04 VM player start
This is an issue in the Windows system, and is NOT related to Ubuntu. You need to use a different site for this, as your host OS is the one crashing, and not the VM causing it (Virtualization sometimes breaks Windows if it's not capable on that system)

comment Requesting insight on latest project: WebUI Browser
That's the problem though - you are stuck if you want it to ONLY work with a web browser as your GUI. You'll have to have Java applets or others to interface with that kind of environment correctly, and that's going to be a bottleneck in terms of performance too.

comment Requesting insight on latest project: WebUI Browser
As soon as your company recognizes it's being used to access other things blocked by your corporate network, they'll block that as an open proxy. It sounds like you need to design some type of Web based VNC that would be able to access the local X instance on your system, but that's almost like a virtual desktop at that point

comment Clonezilla: copy multiple partitions to one partition
You can't do this with CloneZilla. You will have to manually move data into all one partition, adjust your /etc/fstab, then clone your system with only one partition present

comment Directory converted to a file
Run file DIRNAME when you're in the folder for the external HD. See if it says if it's a file or directory. If it says "File" then it was overwritten somehow and the directory is likely 'gone'. if it says "Directory" then there's something weird going on, though you should still be able to cd into the directory.

comment Why did apt-get remove take so long?
The "files and directories currently installed" refers to system-wide, NOT dropbox. I have a huge number like that too; its not the cause

I/O errors usually come from hardware failure, rather than filesystem corruption...

comment Need help “sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found”
are you on 32bit or 64bit? Just trying to rule out every potential cause, as I can't replicate, even with my ancient 12.04 server I've been meaning to upgrade (lol)

comment Need help “sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found”
When you run it, do you happen to see which IP it attempts to reach to? Could you also run nslookup us.archive.ubuntu.com as well to verify which servers your system is attempting to use?

try again in an hour - hash sum mismatch sounds like the servers are in the middle of a syncing of packages and that should resolve fairly soon

comment Need help “sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found”
Looks like you have broken packages, can you edit your question to include the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list ?

comment Trouble booting Snappy on Raspberry Pi 2
Don't ask questions in your answer. Yes, it makes perfect sense, since not all cables are of the same quality capable of providing the power needed to run the RPi. Same goes for power adapters as well (not just the cables)

comment Cannot boot Ubuntu MATE on Raspberry Pi
@EduardoCola You should do your own research on this for once, and save yourself asking questions. RPi 2B+ is armhf. I can confirm this myself since I have a coupe RPi 2B+ devices

comment Want to creats a multiboot usb, I am on Lubuntu
"don't seem to succeed" means nothing - what exactly makes you think that Multisystem doesn't work?
