Warning: avoid outdated explanations in informatics

Par défaut

Hello, everyone please, informatics depends on TIME so always check calendar date before trying anything, when it’s not your year, it’s because suggestions are old, so unless you know, no reason to try them =) Upgrade your  » news  » on terminal codes to solve your issues please ~_^

Time runs faster in this field then in other fields and yet all fields do evolve at different time rates. It’s in the same time a danger and a luck, and yes even if you erase history it’ll catch you up in every field because time is inconscient and can run twice as fast if you erase it. So you must live with respect to your past (even if it’s shit and berk) and at the sime time watch for your future. Destiny is heavy but anyone can have the strength to push it up.

Good luck everyone in finding your path in this known world =)

New: Windows is now against Ubuntu screen captures

Hello, yesterday no problem with my screen captures from Ubuntu in my double boot.
But today, Windows does not let me read, neither rename, neither move no image from gnome-screenshot, he pretends he doesn’t like the « : » that shows date and time, can we replace those by « -« , and he also tells name is too long, but the error is not at all due to length, but to ponctuation character in my images.
I can access same files from Windows and Ubuntu Linux (Utopic Unicorn 4.10) . Utopic will stay as if it were LTS because it is compatible with my printer, but the true LTS, is not.
So can you do something about it for me to be able to read screen captured images from both systems without renaming all?

Follow in launchpad…

I got answer from Hizoka, so I wrote to launchpad:

It’s OK, yes files can be renamed in Ubuntu. It’s double boot that created the problem. I even thought it was a virus since I coundn’t even delete these images, but it wasn’t. Someone suggested:
find « /media/fran/Acer/Documents and Settings/Francoise/Pictures » -iname « *.png » -exec rename ‘s/:/-/g’ {} \;
It replaces all « : » by « – » in my Windows « Pictures » folders and sub-folders without touching *.jpg, and can be done from terminal without loosing time finding a program that will do it in /media mounted disk for folders and sub-folders.

find « /media/windows-address-until-your-folder/Pictures » -iname « *.png » -exec rename ‘s/:/-/g’ {} \;

it’s only one line.

 

===============================

Google Chrome Freezes, don’t know what to do, I’m trying:

Uninstall it (1st the free one, 2nd the non free one):
sudo apt-get purge -f chromium-browser
sudo apt-get purge -f google-chrome-stable
sudo apt-get purge -f pepperflashplugin-nonfree
sudo updatedb

Then find all files left with locate google-chrome and cache left and empty them all.

Empty (it is possible Local State is the one that bugs):
/home/fran/.config/google-chrome
/home/fran/.cache/google-chrome/Default/Cache
/home/fran/.cache/google-chrome/Default/Media Cache

Delete files:
/home/fran/.cache/software-center/piston-helper/rec.ubuntu.com,api,1.0,recommend_app,google-chrome-stable,,ab8e25bc835f33c6ca5c580b6a249704

sudo apt-get clean; sudo apt-get autoclean; sudo apt-get autoremove; sudo updatedb; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade;

Re-install it from repositories:

http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppa/google_chrome?dist=stable
wget -q -O – https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add –
sudo sh -c ‘echo « deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main » >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list’
sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable

If duplicate, correct your source.list (Sources de logiciels, partiellement accessible depuis la logithèque également) from terminal.

In Other Softwares/Autres Logiciels, in Source.List I have webupd8team already installed. If you don’t have:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
