The UUID of a Linux partition is the Universally Unique IDentifier of that partition. I would say with a fair bit of confidence that in this and most scenarios, the Linux partition UUID has more of a local machine scope.
Ignoring broken packages in Ubuntu or any other distribution of Linux using Aptitude package manager would usually be a bad thing and it’s not recommended. Maintaining a system of broken packages kind of defeats the object.
BUT, I recently came across a situation where I had to install a 32bit version of Chrome on my 64bit Ubuntu.
Some recent changes to Ubuntu have changed the way we set a static IP in Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10. Previously we could change the /etc/resolv.conf file adding in our static IP details. But due to some internal changes I’m finding it more stable to make changes in the graphical interface…. nm-connection-editor, as these new changes are overwriting the file with some generated content.
Recently I’m seeing quite a few people asking how to remove scrollbars from their page, both vertical and horizontal scrollbars. What I’m going to explain isn’t just for removing scrollbars but can also be used to make them appear permanently.
I recently updated my home machine to Ubuntu 12.04 and found MySQL 5.5 installed as default. As happy as I was to have the latest stable MySQL server, I was a bit gutted to find that LOAD DATA LOCAL was disabled as default, due to security issues. These issues may be valid but this is my local environment and I’ve got projects that require it so thought I’d
waste utilize some free time fixing it.
I don’t know why Ubuntu has decided to keep window controls (window controls being the minimize, maximize and close buttons) in the left corner of the window. For some reason, with every release of Ubuntu I expect the window controls to be moved to the right! I keep trying to change my ways but always reach for the right corner when minimizing or trying to close – maximizing I could probably do without!
Ubuntu 12.04 is no different, time to change some settings again…
Changing the LXDE screen resolution is easy, but at first its not permanent. Setting a permanent resolution seems quite straightforward in Ubuntu, sometimes! You may have had a few problems setting the resolution in Ubuntu 11.10 (among other things – which has led many people to seek out new distributions).
