If you can’t get run some executables under Ubuntu 64-bit Server these might be 32-bit ones. Typically there comes a “not found” error in this case. Install
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
and the executables will work.
After installing Eclipse I got an error
# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:

Added a line
to the eclipse.ini and Eclipse is starting well.
2nd issue, calling the Web Browser causes a hard crash. To avoid this I’ve added these to lines to the eclipse.ini
.. and .. check out this one how to enable Tomcat within Eclipse properly http://lackovic.wordpress.com/2012/05/31/set-up-eclipse-and-tomcat-7-on-ubuntu-12-04-to-create-java-restful-web-services-with-jersey
When using an Epson SX440W WLAN capable printer from your desktop or laptop be careful if some anti virus software is running. Large documents (e.g. PDF files) require a bi-directional communication and so far an incoming request from your local home network (where the printer is running) must be allowed explicitely.
I’ve made this experience while trying to print PDF documents and everytime the document wasn’t printed completely. I’ve played around with Kaspersky Web-Ant-Virus a bit and finally allowed the inbound communication from 192.168.2.* Bingo :-)
Furthermore you must install the Epson Network Utility to see the ink status of your printer that is connected through WLAN.
I’ve installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my brand new Lenovo T410s. Everything was working fine but I did run into trouble when trying to play wmv video files. It cost me several hours but after some research I did found this one link that helped!
.. is to make live music. A half year ago I joined a cover rock band after 5 years of abstinence from playin’ guitar. For all those that are interested in you may have a look at http://www.just-like-that.de.
We also tried to record some practice room sessions, one of these I posted here and being curious to get some feedback (about the music itself and also about recording quality). I’m using now an Alesis Multimix 16 Firewire http://www.alesis.com/multimix16firewire and PreSonus StudioOne Artist (a brand new, impressing recording software) http://www.presonus.com/products/SoftwareDetail.aspx?SoftwareId=11. From my point of view it’s a really low cost and high quality option to record practice and live sessions. Finally I paid 299 € for the Alesis on eBay, PreSonus StudioOne was an add-on to another gear (normally 188 €) and .. don’t forget the cables wherefore I paid 200 € overall (custom made by myself ;-) ).
So please .. have a look and watch the recording .. looking forward to your feedback ..
A really, really sad experience. Due to a variable not set correctly in a script the command there “rm $INSTALLDIR/* -R” started at / .. a really nightmare. 3 things I learned
- Always having a backup. Fortunately I had one 14 days old .. but only by a fluke. My digital live could be restored so far ..
- Never use such a command with some security checks wrapped around. So far I added some code
if [ ! $INSTALLDIR = "" ] && [ ! $INSTALLDIR = "/" ] && [ ! $INSTALLDIR = "/home" ] && [ ! $INSTALLDIR = "/home/$USERNAME" ]; then
echo “rm $INSTALLDIR/* -R”
rm $INSTALLDIR/* -R
- Keep cool if such a shit happened. There is in between a possibility to get data back from ext3 partitions with an excellent tool ext3grep.
Backup and ext3grep has made me happy again. If anyone has some additional hints avoiding such a nightmare when executing a script feel free.
