An Easy Way To Boot ISO Image From Your Hard Drive

With grml-rescueboot there is an easy way to boot an ISO image from your harddisk to test other linux distributions.
Out of curiosity I downloaded the iso from Elementary OS ( elementaryos-stable-amd64.20130810.iso ).

First install grml-rescueboot as root :

apt-get install grml-rescueboot

Then move the ISO image to /boot/grml/ as root :

mv elementaryos-stable-amd64.20130810.iso /boot/grml

Update Grub 2 with the following command as root :

update-grub

Reboot and you will see a new entry in your booting list.

Copy.com : Cloud Storage Service With 20 GB Free Storage



Just recently found out about this cloud service : copy.com .

You can get 15GB free storage by going directly to the website and register or you can get 20GB free storage by using my referral link .

To celebrate Copy's launch, earn 5 GB of extra free storage for yourself and whoever you refer each time you introduce someone new to Copy. This is a limited time opportunity to rack up huge amounts of extra free storage while we build the initial buzz around Copy!

Error Dependency Is Not Satisfiable : Libc6 Google-Music-Manager

I downloaded Google-music-manager from here : https://play.google.com/music/listen#/manager.

Installing with gdebi showed the following :


Error : Dependency is not satisfiable : libc6 ( >=2.15 ).......

After some Googling I found an older version from this link ( google music )

Installed without trouble...


To have it work properly (  the "Upload" menu item missing and the "Options" item not doing anything ) I had to delete the ~/.config/google-musicmanager directory and start the manager again ( link ).

Additional link for download ( version 1.0.60.7918-r0 ) : here. ( google-musicmanager-beta_current_amd64.deb ).

Disable The Universal Access Accessibility Menu In Gnome 3


Edit as root the file /usr/share/gnome-shell/js/ui/panel.js

Look for the following line, (line 37 in my case):

'a11y': imports.ui.status.accessibility.ATIndicator,

Comment it out, so it will look like this :

// 'a11y': imports.ui.status.accessibility.ATIndicator,

Restart gnome-shell :

Press ALT + F2 and type in r and hit Enter to restart the gnome-shell.

Done....

Enable Autologin Gdm3

As root edit the file /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf  :

nano /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf

Look for the lines :

#  AutomaticLoginEnable = true
#  AutomaticLogin = user1

Remove the # signs before each line and replace user1 with your own username.

So in my case ( username = eric ) these lines will look like :

AutomaticLoginEnable = true
AutomaticLogin = eric

To see it working switch to tty1 :

CTRL + ALT + F1

Login as root and then :

/etc/init.d/gdm3 restart
