"Ugly" windows jessie cinnamon

LinuxQuestions.org latest posts - Fri, 11/25/2016 - 14:41
Hey all of you Linux lovers,

I want to run Debian jessie cinnamon and I want full control. So I downloaded a netinstall CD and installed xorg muffin and cinnamon-common and cinnamon.
Everything works perfecly, but there is something I don't like: my window buttons for example are squared it looks as if GTK is not installed (which is). I've searched the web but didn't find anything useful. In other words I want Debian to look as Linux Mint. I have my reasons to not using Mint . .
As I said I want full control and pretty much understand what is installed etc.

Anyone any ideas?

Thanx in advance.

New to me Lenovo Think Pad

LinuxQuestions.org latest posts - Fri, 11/25/2016 - 13:29
I'm not completely new to Linux although I did find 9.1 Ubuntu a real challenge, rewarding once the hurdles were crossed though. I'm now using 16.04 Ubuntu on a Dell laptop that's just limping along because the keyboard's tired and case seems weak.

I've done a little research and haven't found well defined answers for the best distribution considering the configuration of the Think Pad that is on its way to me. I utilize Garmin products as well as a couple other that seem to demand Windohs so I plan to dual boot for an all in one laptop.

I enjoy Blender but know serious use takes an expensive machine my budget can't handle. Light weight animation, some 3D modeling are really all I've been able to do with a brand new I3 laptop, this didn't last long!

Controlling Relays with ARTIK boards with Tizen OS and IoTivity server

tuxmachines.org - Fri, 11/25/2016 - 12:12

The number of “Smart” bulbs and switches that are available out in the market is nearing infinity these days. These devices generally tend to cost a considerable amount of money, and for the price what you generally get is a device that can probably be controlled over bluetooth or WiFi from your Phones and smartwatches. All this spending however, doesn’t make any sense for a maker or a DIY enthusiast as all this can be achieved with some really cheap electronics components which are widely available.

High Availability LVM (HA-LVM)

LinuxQuestions.org latest posts - Fri, 11/25/2016 - 11:30
Hi Guys,

im need some clarification here regarding HA-LVM.

i have 4 node pacemaker cluster on Redhat 7. I have assigned/present 5 LUN to all 4 nodes. since this is a simple cluster, which is serving NFS share. so i just choose ha-lvm instead of clvmd. here comes my question.

since 4 nodes to serve NFS share is sound ridiculous, so i have decided to remove the 2 nodes from the cluster but not unpresent the disk.

so my question is.

is there any issue if i mount the SAN disk into node that i already remove from cluster. just mount it as read only, and most probably will be use when i want to copy file or backup the files so it wont use the current resource that host/serve NFS share.

Security News

  • Microsoft is reportedly sharing Windows 10 telemetry data with third-parties

    MICROSOFT HAS REPORTEDLY signed a deal with FireEye that will see it share telemetry data from Windows 10 with the third-party security outfit.

    So says Australian website ARN, which reports that Microsoft and FireEye's partnership, which will see the security firm's iSIGHT Intelligence tools baked into Windows Defender, will also see FireEye "gain access to telemetry from every device running Windows 10."

    Microsoft uses telemetry data from Windows 10 to help identify security issues, to fix problems and to help improve the quality of its operating system, which sounds like a good thing. However, with the company previously admitting that it's latest OS is harvesting more data than any version before it, Microsoft's mega data-slurp also raised some privacy concerns.

  • Hackers attack European Commission

    The European Commission was the victim of a “large scale” cyberattack Thursday, a spokesperson said.

    “The attack has so far been successfully stopped with no interruption of service, although connection speeds have been affected for a time. No data breach has occurred,” the spokesperson said.

  • 8 Books Security Pros Should Read

    Calling all infosec pros: What are the best books in your security library?

    On a second thought, let's take a step back. A better question may be: Do you have a security library at all? If not, why?

    Security professionals have countless blogs, videos, and podcasts to stay updated on rapidly changing news and trends. Books, on the other hand, are valuable resources for diving into a specific area of security to build knowledge and broaden your expertise.

    Because the security industry is so complex, it's impossible to cram everything there is to know in a single tome. Authors generally focus their works on single topics including cryptography, network security modeling, and security assessment.

    Consider one of the reads on this list of recommendations, Threat Modeling: Designing for Security. This book is based on the idea that while all security pros model threats, few have developed expertise in the area.

  • DoD Opens .Mil to Legal Hacking, Within Limits

    Security researchers are often reluctant to report programming flaws or security holes they’ve stumbled upon for fear that the vulnerable organization might instead decide to shoot the messenger and pursue hacking charges.

    But on Nov. 21, the DoD sought to clear up any ambiguity on that front for the military’s substantial online presence, creating both a centralized place to report cybersecurity flaws across the dot-mil space as well as a legal safe harbor (and the prospect of public recognition) for researchers who abide by a few ground rules.

  • Data breach law 'will create corporate awareness'

    The introduction of a data breach law requiring disclosure of consumer data leaks is important because it will make big corporates aware they need to be transparent about their state of security, the head of a big cyber-security firm says.

    Guy Eilon, the country manager of Forcepoint, was commenting on the speech made by Dan Tehan, the minister assisting the prime minister on cyber security, on Wednesday.

  • US Navy breach: 130,000 soldiers at risk after HPE contractor hacked [iophk: "MS, possibly MS sharepoint?"]

    The Navy has acknowledged the breach and said it was made aware of the incident after being notified that a laptop belonging to an employee of Navy contractor Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE) was compromised by hackers.

  • US Navy warns 134,000 sailors of data breach after HPE laptop is compromised

    Sailors whose details have been compromised are being notified by phone, letter, and e-mail, the Navy said. "For those affected by this incident, the Navy is working to provide further details on what happened, and is reviewing credit monitoring service options for affected sailors."

  • Personal data for more than 130,000 sailors stolen, admits US Navy

    A spokesman for Hewlett Packard Enterprise Services, said: “This event has been reported to the Navy and because this is an ongoing investigation, HPE will not be commenting further out of respect for the privacy of our Navy personnel.”

    Today, November 25, 2016, Calibre developer Kovid Goyal proudly announced the release of yet another maintenance update of his popular, open-source, cross-platform, and free ebook library management tool.

    Calibre 2.73 is here exactly one week after the previous point release, namely Calibre 2.72, to add a bunch of interesting new features, such as the ability to hide row numbers in the main book list by using the new option implemented in the Look & Feel section of the Preferences dialog.

  • Give your eyes a break in the evenings with Redshift

    If you've heard of either Twilight or f.lux, you'll probably know what these sorts of programs do: they adjust the colour temperature of your screen according to the time of day, often by altering the amount of blue light being emitted, to make the colour temperature and brightness more suitable for viewing in your environment. The end result is "normal" bright light during the day, for easy screen visibility during the day, but at night your screen will display a much softer and less bright image, with a reddish hue, which can greatly reduce eye strain and just generally make night time computer use a lot more comfortable.

printf in nested for/while loop not working

LinuxQuestions.org latest posts - Fri, 11/25/2016 - 09:20
For a given two sets of keywords ( say set1 is {keyA1, keyA2} and set2 is {keyB1, keyB2} ) my objective is to create list of file pairs fileA (files which have all the keyA words in its path) and fileB (files which have all the keyA words in its path) by searching recursively.

I wrote following code but it is not printing out the filename as expected. If condition is there to avoid repetitions and pair with itself, however, I have commented out.
Can someone point out the mistake/ improvement ?

Code: #!/bin/bash


find . -name "*.txt" -path "*$keyA*" -path "*$keyA2*" | while read -d  $'\0' fileA
#    printf '%s %s \n' "fileA: " "$fileA"
    find . -name "*.txt" -path "*$keyB1*" -path "*$keyB2*" | while read -d  $'\0' fileB
  #  if [ $fileA \< $fileB ] ; then
        printf '%s %s \n' "$fileA" "$fileB"
  #  fi
done Earlier I observed that if I placed the printf statement right after the first while loop (commented out in the above code) it makes the innermost printf functional on some machines (Cygwin). This make me wonder if this is similar and related to fflush() in C.

Never buying Windows again, eh? How about the Linux powered Oryx Pro?

tuxmachines.org - Fri, 11/25/2016 - 09:09

The Oryx Pro is the opposite of most of the laptops you have seen reviewed here recently. At 15.2x10.7x1.1" and 5.5lbs it is bulkier than the slim laptops dominating the market, not to mention the 2lb power brick. It also runs Ubuntu 16.04 LTS as opposed to Win10, thankfully the install is well configured for the hardware present according to the review at Ars Technica. The hardware on the other hand is familiar and rather impressive, a desktop class GTX 1060, an i7-6700HQ, 32GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. The model reviewed at Ars runs you almost $1900 or there is a 17" model, as well as a GTX 1070 upgrade available if you so desire. Pop by to take a look at the full review of this Linux powered laptop.
