I use Ubuntu as my primary operating system and absolutely love it. I am also a software developer fluent in C++, PHP, and somewhat-fluent in Python.

Some links:

  • StackApplet - a Gnome applet for keeping track of your activity on this site! Included in Universe for Ubuntu 10.10+.
  • StackExchange Data Dump Browser - a browser for viewing the offline data dumps from this site
  • StackMobile - view the questions, answers, etc. on this site with a smartphone-friendly interface
  • OpenTracks - an open source railway simulation game I started

How are you launching the Docker container? Are you using the -it flag?

comment Complete Installation procedure django 1.7
@Maroon.Bisht try breaking this into smaller questions. Assuming such a question doesn't already exist, you could ask about configuring Django with Apache. Then ask another question about connecting it to MySQL, etc. I'll give you one tip - avoid using MySQL with Django. It doesn't support schema modifications in transactions. Try PostgreSQL instead.

comment apt-get remove libstdc++-4.8-doc | 101MB will be freed?
"Which means there are 9,891 kB of deb archives will be downloaded" close, but in your example nothing will be downloaded since it already exists in the APT cache.

Is there any way to persistently set sspmode to 0 so I don't have to run that command every reboot?

comment Display audio metadata while streaming music over A2DP?
Interestingly, the Bluetooth adapter I have came with a utility for Windows that displays this information in a little popup window that sits next to the taskbar.

comment How to remove a package providing a service without stopping the service?
I was trying to avoid downtime since I only had a single server at the time I originally asked this question (we have two now).

comment How to remove a package providing a service without stopping the service?
Thanks but I need to have the package removed before shutdown since I'm installing the uWSGI package from PIP and some of the files will likely conflict.

"There's a better way!" Not with Qt5, there isn't.

comment How to write Appindicators in python?
Literally all the links on the first page are dead and the second link in the answer is dead. Is there a way to use indicators from Python 3?

comment How to install Stack Applet?
@Cammy: You're welcome - glad to hear! That package is listed as a suggested dependency but it should probably be made a requirement. I'll see if I can get that fixed.

@Cammy_the_block: This may be a long shot, but please try closing StackApplet, opening a terminal, running sudo apt-get install python-appindicator, and then starting StackApplet again.

I finally made it work with this: "sudo apt-get install libssl1.0.0/trusty libssl-dev/trusty openssl/trusty".

comment Unable to install libssl1.0.0:i386 due to “unmet dependencies”?
@mtmiller: Nope - impossible. I'm actually the guy that uploaded the OpenSSL packages to the PPA and those were the only packages I uploaded. (I created the PPA and uploaded the packages the day Heartbleed was announced.)
