I have a debian netbook that stores everything important I have. I'm wondering how I can use my much more powerful desktop to modify and use the files in it? For instance, if I wanted to work in LibreOffice and save a few documents. Oh, as for the desktop, I'm currently trying ElementaryOS with persistence to a flash drive, it has Win8 natively installed. Thank you! submitted by WhiteSkyRising [link] [1 comment]

I am looking for a nice app, preferably terminal based but not required to keep a journal or diary. I'd like for the content to be encryption if possible. Does anybody have any recommendations? submitted by coned88 [link] [comment]

My laptop has an 8gb SSD on the hard drive. On Windows there is software to manage it. I could just throw some frequently used files on it but that is pretty much pointless. It exists for caching. I've spent most of this time trying to get dmcache to work. I'm finding that the documentation online is not very good. I still don't know if I should have my cache drive partitioned or not. The error I'm getting is: reload ioctl on home-cached failed: Device or resource busy I don't know if the device is the "virtual" device I'm creating, the SSD drive, or the hard drive. If anyone has tips for debugging this I'd appreciate that as well. I think there might be a way to get a stacktrace out of it. submitted by metal_head_3767 [link] [comment]

How long does cinnamon take to fully load up for those of you using it on arch? It seems mine takes about 5 seconds to load the wallpaper & menu panel, then another 10-15 seconds to load my desktop icons. Is this what those of you using it experience? or do I have abnormally long load times? submitted by ase1590 [link] [1 comment]

I have read about solr and I have tried to set it up and get running but so far for me it seems that there is a steep barrier to entry. Perhaps I just havent found the right tutorial yet. I am hoping for something I can: Install on Linux (preferably via apt-get) Configure to look in a directory or several directories and have it index it periodically. (Things are added over time) Allow full text searches via a web interface. Same interface allows easy download of found documents. Can get up and running in a day or less. On the if I won first prize in the lottery, would be some manner of extracting meta data from the documents to allow a guided search. I do understand this is probably not going to happen without hiring a consulting company for a while. So basic text search si fine. Solr is one I keep hearing about. I have looked at some commercial offerings (dtSearch for one) but they are all pretty expensive. Ideally I would love a distro that is a "search engine in a box" point it at a set of directories, wait a while and search away. :) Love to hear your opinions. Thank you. (I am hoping to get it setup over easter to have a nice surprise for everyone ) submitted by NoeticIntelligence [link] [comment]

Hey all, Looking for some pointing in the right direction for getting my server up and running properly. So I finished a website I've been working on for a few months and decided to try to host it on my pi. I've setup an nginx, PHP server on there and have moved everything correctly(I think) to the point where I can type in my public IP for the pi and view the site in a browser. Then, if I understand correctly, you have to register your .com address with a some domain company, so I've purchased a cheap .com address. Now, from there I redirect the .com address to my public IP, then, obviously as you are redirected, the title bar now displays my IP("XX.XXX.XXX.XX/index.html") instead of my real .com address. So my question is: is there any way to host this site from my pi and retain the .com when it's redirected, or any other way? Or do I just have to upload all my files to the domain company I bought address from....Thanks submitted by poithy321 [link] [1 comment]

I want to install ubuntu on my dads old laptop. I need a lightweight desktop environment cause the computer is old and I don't really care for design and effects. All I care for is fast performance. I understand that both LXDE and XFCE are lightweight desktop environments. Which one is "lighter"? submitted by flaspd [link] [1 comment]

I really enjoyed several books I bought from No Starch Press (How Linux Works, Linux Cookbook, and The Linux Command Line), and I like their focus on open source, so I reached out to them to see if they would offer our community here a discount on their GIMP books - and they said "Sure!”... So here’s a coupon code that’s good for 30% off on their The Book of GIMP and Artist’s Guide to GIMP. The code is GIMPREDDIT and it’s good through May 6. FWIW, I’m not receiving any benefit from this (other than the same as you might), nor am I associated with No Starch Press in any way. submitted by psignosis [link] [comment]

Hello again /r/Linux. It's been over a year since I surveyed the /r/Linux community on what distros we were using and posted the results. Well, it's time again! This year's survey is built largely from the top responses from last year's survey. The survey has only 16 questions at most. I will leave the survey running for at least a week and then collect and process the results. Take the survey here. submitted by TyIzaeL [link] [comment]
