One of the good things from a Desktop Environment in Linux is, that it helps you setting up many aspects of your Desktop. However, as some of you might know, I have made the switch from Gnome3 to i3wm. It was the first time I tried a tiling window manager, but the ride has been good for the past 6 months.
During my around-the-world trip I made a lot of photos. Of course, I am a good boy, so I uploaded them all to dropbox whenever there was an oppertunity. However, at some point disaster striked, and I was left with a 8Gb sd card which did not work anymore. How bad can things get.
So first there are 2 important steps to not loose your pictures:
When using an antivirus solution make sure it is tested and does protect you. For Fireclam I needed a testfile to check how it works. Read on to see how you can test it.
Since Online Banking in the Netherlands requires you to have an up-to-date anti-virus solution, I decided to install clamav. Of course, this is not super important on my Linux computers (especially since mine are ArchLinux and thus up-to-date).
Very handy to know... how to find out which jar file to include in a project to make your imports work. The answer is simple... search which jar file implements that class. I use the following bash function for this:
for f in `find . -name '*.jar'`; do echo $f && jar tvf $f | grep -i "$1"; done
This will search all jars in all subfolders for the text provided in $1!
Hope it helps!
This time a short how-to about solving the csync error for the ownCloud client on Archlinux.
Every now and again the ownCloud client does not want to contect anymore due to the following error:
CSync failed to create a lock file
Nas4Free is a great Nas Operation System which works extremely well with the ZFS filesystem. ZFS is a very powerful filesystem (or actually it is more like a combination of a file system and a logical volume manager). It has many great features, but it is not very strong in expanding its pool (when compared to Readynas' XRAID).
Sometimes I have visitors at home... and I want them to be able to use the computer (with ArchLinux). I could simply create a guest account with a password, but that is inconvenient. I prefer them to log in into the system without the need to enter a password... And here is how it can be done.
Using git-svn is very interesting for those forced to use an SVN repository, but preferring GIT (just like me). In this article I will put some tips and tricks I use myself (as well as my standard workflow). For the starters I will also add some hints and tips on how to ensure that the required packages are installed.
For future reference. This is the place I will post / update my .gitignore file. At this moment the file is used in project containing:
- C++ with Qt
My GIT code is in https://bitbucket.org. Great service!
Then... the code:
# In repository we don't need to have:
# Compiled object files
# Generated MOC, resource and UI files
# Qt User Project files
Installing the offline application of LastPass in ArchLinux is not too easy for those who do not want to puzzle a bit.
Make sure you have the Ubuntu/Debian version!
After the download, unpack the tar.bz2 package:
