The San Diego Ubuntu users will meet this Thursday at 7pm to get to know each other once again. We will be meeting at the Starbucks off Sports Arena, right where five and eight come together. If you are going to come, RSVP at the link below or say that you are coming in the comments. Come and have some fun, and also come because I have Ubuntu stickers. http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/ubuntu-california/2765-ubuntu-san-diego-1404-release-party/ submitted by philipballew [link] [comment]

A while ago, a friend showed me how to dual boot Linux on my Win7 pc. I had it set up to default to linux, and had mainly used that as my OS. I had a keyboard issue after my cat ran across my laptop and spilled wine on it - I'd push a key and 2 or 3 would register, or the wrong key would register, always the same problem for a given key. So I disassembled my lapop (asus k55a), cleaned the keyboard and everything else best I could - not too much wine in there - disconnected everything and reconnected it. I put it all back together and turn on, and my pc boots to windows. Odd. I restart and hit esc to go to boot menu, and linux is gone from the list. Go into setup, I see nothing to add it back. I can see, through windows, that the hard drive partitions exist. But I can't get to them. Does anyone have any clue what may have happened and what I can do to fix it? p.s. The keyboard works again. So at least I fixed one problem. submitted by ganner [link] [comment]

There was an old article that I saw somewhere that laid out the progression of people through open source software. Like how they would start with ubuntu and move up to arch and gentoo and more complicated distros. Maybe someone can help me find it because I cant remember where I saw it. submitted by r31nd33r_fl0t1lla [link] [comment]

What I would like to do is turn it into a multiboot installer using about 25GB, and then have a 'storage' partition for swapping out files on a computer... Would love to have the latest Ubuntu / Kubuntu / ElementaryOS / SolydXK / Arch installers, as well as a Win7 installer. Would love any advice/opinions on how to build it - what would you do different, etc... Thanks in Advance! submitted by DoctorKraz [link] [comment]

Hi, all. What are your favourite Linux publications? E.g., magazines, blogs, podcasts, etc. I want something that can offer some fresh howto's and tips rather than go on and on about how great the last Ubuntu/GNOME/KDE/etc release is. submitted by nmdt [link] [comment]

I've haven't used linux since 12.04 was fairly new, and windows 8 has a lot of compatablity. I'm thinking about dual booting, but why should I? I like linux, but don't see any direct benefiets right now. submitted by dualpersonality [link] [4 comments]

I've seen some people claim that Wayland is inherently immune to keyloggers because it isolates applications. It is not. I know this because I created a proof-of-concept keylogger four months ago: https://github.com/MaartenBaert/wayland-keylogger How can this work? It's simple: although the Wayland protocol does isolate applications, the underlying OS does not provide the same isolation. My keylogger simply abuses one of the features provided by the operating system to bypass the security restrictions of the Wayland protocol. What does an attacker have to do to install a keylogger like this? Simple, just drop a few files in your home folder and modify your .profile or .bashrc file. Any application can do this. And this is just one of the many ways Does this mean that Linux is inherently insecure? No, of course not - Linux is just using a different security model. It assumes that any process running as John is trusted by John, so the process is allowed to read John's files, use all system resources that are available to John, and manipulate other applications that are launched by John in various ways. Wayland uses a different security model: each application is untrusted and can only do things that are never harmful. Sounds nice in theory, but this is all pointless when Wayland is running on a system that doesn't use the same security model. Wayland can't possibly fix the holes in the underlying system. What is the solution? All applications that aren't trusted by the user should be sandboxed, and Wayland should be integrated with this sandboxing system so it can give different privileges to different applications. Android does something like this, and GNOME is planning to do something similar. I've raised this point on the Wayland mailing list a few times, but sandboxing is considered out of scope - Wayland is just a protocol after all. This makes sense, but as long as Wayland isn't used together with some form of sandboxing, it won't be immune to keyloggers. I just wanted to make that clear. If anyone is interested in these security discussions, here are two good summaries of some of the things that have been discussed regarding this issue: http://mupuf.org/blog/2014/02/19/wayland-compositors-why-and-how-to-handle/ http://mupuf.org/blog/2014/03/18/managing-auth-ui-in-linux/ submitted by MaartenBaert [link] [comment]

I am attempting to automate a script that runs, but must be invoked with epoch time instead of standard formats. Essentially, I want to have a cronjob that says "Run this script every 24 hours". That script needs to have the current time in epoch (but minus 24 hours ) as the START time, and current time in epoch as END time. I am new to the linux world, and have been reading up on forums, and I see plenty of solutions for when I want to convert a specific time to Epoch, but nothing I have found has shown me how to convert current time to epoch, then minus 24 hours. Any help is immensely appreciated! submitted by puppeteria [link] [2 comments]
