Hi. So in looking to dual boot win7 and linux mint. Most guides suggest using the "something else" option when setting up the partitions. Why is that when there is an option to "install alongside windows 7"? Does using the latter option potentially introduce problems? I want the install of linux to go as smoothly as possible. submitted by justausername99 [link] [comment]

I am trying to scan our work network to see if any web servers are running a specific application. It would look something like this: www.something.edu/application/ Any idea how to do an NMAP scan to quickly scan a range and see if any hosts are running it? Thanks for your help. submitted by BravoReview [link] [8 comments]

Hi Guys (& gals) I need to order a laptop for my admin person. This will just be a spare machine but she will need to be able to synchronise her email (we use Thunderbird) between her desktop/dropbox and her new laptop. Is it possible to install Thunderbird/Icedove on a Chromebook? And, if that's not possible... Is it feasible to buy a Chromebook and install minimal Debian on it? She will only need WiFi, Chrome and Thunderbird. This is pretty urgent as I have to order the laptop in the next couple of days (for business reasons) - I can set up an Rsync script to do the email replication but I have absolutely no experience of ChromeBooks - we'll certainly need a low weight laptop (thus a ChromeBook) but with a bigger screen than a NetBook. Ideally, I'll buy a ChromeBook and install Thunderbird on it - if that's not possible I'd love to know if it's possible to buy a ChromeBook and then install minimal Debian on it and have working WiFi. All the best Keith submitted by Bretondiary [link] [comment]

Is there any way to disable this? I'm using a tiling window manager (awesome) and this is not only inconsistent with every other window I have open, but an inconvenient waste of space. This may sound like some ridiculous "This won't work if I have some obscure unsupported configuration" complaint, but I really do see it as a step backward, as an end user, whatever reason there may be for it. Not a huge step backward, just an annoyance, but sill... Any desktop that is not GNOME, but where the majority of applications use GTK, is going to have: - some GTK2/3 applications set up in some close approximation of the way the user wants - maybe some funny-looking QT ones (though QT actually tries to accommodate GTK themes) - possibly a couple of GNOME ones that were also set up the way the user wanted until this change, and now are not - every single dialog for almost every application sticking out with its oversized, useless, and annoyingly inconsistent eye-candy titlebar Is there at least a way to disable this for the dialogs??? After all, I can avoid using GNOME applications (as much as I liked Gedit), but the dialogs are part of the toolkit! Seriously, WTF GNOME/GTK devs! submitted by acct_deleted [link] [comment]

So I thought about replacing my grandparents pc's windows xp with a linux, but I do not know what distro I should go for? PC specs: 1000 Mhz cpu (cannot remember model) Matrox gpu 256 Mb ram 16Gb hdd So yeah, the computer is really old. =/ The computer would be used pretty much for paying bills online (requires java) and should be pretty easy to use and possible to install from usb. submitted by Topruttaja [link] [7 comments]

If there is a better place to ask this question let me know. So first in an inebriated state last night I thought it would be fun to install cuda 6.0 on an unsupported Ubuntu version and low and behold NVIDIA graphic drivers no longer work for me. Right now I'm just using the X.org X server --Nouveau display driver from xserver-xorg-video-nouveau (open sources) driver automatically selected after I purged and removed anything that started with nvidia-* or cuda-*. If I try to install either the 319 or 304 updates for the nvidia proprietary drivers, on reboot, after a painstakingly long start up, I get nothing but a blinking underscore. From here I "alt-F2", log in using my credentials, purge and remove all nvidia stuff again and reboot. After reboot a 800x600 resolution display will come up but there are no better options for me to select in by XUbuntu settings manager. Since I would like a better resolution and a proper video driver I was wondering if anyone had any advice or could help me troubleshoot. I haven't tried to use the opensource nvidia drivers because I'm worried I won't be able to uninstall them the same way I the proprietary ones and get back to the default x.org driver. Again if there is a better place more suited to ubuntu/video drier/linux problem sovling let me know and I will stop pestering you with my problems. Thanks in advance. submitted by qmynd [link] [comment]

I have a Thinkpad Helix. Great piece piece of hardware: 1080p screen (high DPI because it's 11 inch), Core i5 Ivy Bridge, detachable keyboard to make a it a tablet, touchscreen, and most importantly for me, a wacom digitizer. I bought this to be a note-taking and working computer for school. I'm tired of carrying paper around in my backpack and I like keeping all my notes backed up online, but pencil+paper has been necessary---I can't draw diagrams and have my thoughts flow in writing using a text interface like I can with pen and paper. I've found Xournal and MyPaint, both really good software that supports the wacom digitizer well. My problem is the environment around it. I use fedora with GNOME Shell, and like it a lot (now using the 3.12 copr from Richard Hughes on f20), but it just doesn't support tablet usage very well. No auto-rotate in tablet mode, touchscreen is still on when the wacom pen is out, meaning I can't lean my palm on the screen while drawing without causing a keypress event. Manually rotating the screen doesn't mean the digitizer gets rotated, meaning the mappings are completely skewed. Is there any distro/desktop env. that does have support for these features? I've looked into xinput and know the hooks into the kernel (via sysfs) for my particular digitzer and touchscreen to make these events happen individually, but hacking a script together to have these things semi-work doesn't sound like a great solution. If there is something that supports these things out-of-the-box I'd be interesting in porting it over to fedora, and using it in the meantime. Otherwise, I'm stuck trying to start from scratch and I don't have any experience here. I'm not against putting in the time, but I should at least know what is out there first. And it would be nice to have a usable system for what I want sooner. submitted by probationer [link] [2 comments]

I work for a small company, one that currently has the IT department outsourced. They insist we use windows, and I know that the cost for this are rather high. Are there advantages for this company to switch to doing everything Linux based, and what would those advantages be? The company is a small shipping/production company. 6 workstations and a server. Everything is done online with only a few things being put on paper for filing and production purposes. 6 people in the office, further 8 on the "floor" ... High through put, with many lines lots of communication between suppliers, ourselves and customers, online billing ect ect.. Office staff moderately computer competent. I am the resident geek, Linux lover and wise ass and I work the floor. I have been using Linux for about 4 years and consider myself an intermediately skilled user... Thank you... submitted by EPaladin [link] [1 comment]
