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).
Opening a terminal isn’t as important as it used to be in Ubuntu. Ubuntu is quite user friendly now (though some would argue it is moving against that with it’s unity interface!) but using a terminal is still as powerful as ever!
Recently Filezilla crashes on drag and drop, I believe its an Ubuntu 11.10 problem as I don’t remember this occurring before. It’s pretty drastic so I’m sure I would have noticed!
Whenever I try to drag and drop a folder Filezilla disappears (exits or crashes – however you want to explain it!). It wasn’t too painful to fix…. luckily.
Install LAMP Server on Ubuntu?
A few complex packages but all (bar linux!) can be installed with one command and then following the on-screen instructions:
(NOTE: All the commands here need to be typed into a terminal, open one by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T.)
This is a problem that could come across quite often. How to replace text in multiple files at once?
If you are running a UNIX system you are lucky: with a simple BASH script you can achieve this.
Where is php.ini file?
This is a question I have been asked a few times recently. Depending on what system you are running, php.ini could have different locations. But where is php.ini hidden?
Firstly, it’s not hidden, it’s a configuration script which determines the settings of your PHP installation. There are few ways to find where the php.ini file.
Some scripts require some time to execute, and they might reach your PHP time limit.
If PHP time limit is too short for your script, you will see this error:
Fatal error: Maximum execution time of N seconds exceeded in /path/to/script.php on line N
Sometimes, when executing a script with a strong memory usage, we might reach the PHP memory limit.
This is what we can see when that moment happens:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of a certain amount bytes exhausted (tried to allocate another amount bytes) in /path/to/script.php
I recently posted an answer on askubuntu regarding the LightDM resolution settings. I thought it would be best to bring it over here and maybe explain things a bit better.
