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

comment Apt-get 403 Forbidden, but accessible in the browser
For the curious, this means uncommenting the ppa.launchpad.net line in /etc/squid-deb-proxy/mirror-dstdomain.acl.d/10-default.

comment How to add some padding between a ListView and its footer?
This is what I tried. The major difference is that I didn't specify a height for the footer component - I'd prefer not to hardcode a height value since it will cut off content if it is larger than the specified value.

comment How to add some padding between a ListView and its footer?
@Sylvain: sorry, I forgot to reply. I tried your suggestion but still could not get it to work. I ended up using a transparent rectangle to add padding. I'm not at a computer at the moment, but when I am, I'll add a comment to your answer and explain what I ended up doing.

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.

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?

@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.

@Rinzwind: My name isn't George and I probably frequent Ask Ubuntu as much as Stack Apps.
