The best admin panel for a web server

Sat, 2018-10-13 12:56

Hello, could anyone help me choose the best web admin panel for managing 1-2 websites that would be e-shop related? I don't have too much experience with web panels, but I thought that it would make things much faster and easier as I'm starting a new project on a clean server.

Thanks to everyone in advance.

Why is it so hard to set up IPA fonts on Linux

Sat, 2018-10-13 10:28

I am trying to install them on Kubuntu 18.04 but after an hour still no success at all. I have installed the SIL package via dpkg and I have install DOULOS SIL font and I see some International Phonetic Alphabet in the keyboard selection (but I think it was there even from the beginning) but when I click on Preview I get this and I can't close the popup no matter how many time I click on close .

So, it is not working ;(

My question, why is installing THE International phonetic alphabet keyboard so hard when installing such languages like Esperanto is one click away?

What is the catch?

Installed multiple distros, desktop doesn't load on any of them.

Sat, 2018-10-13 01:07

I have tried installing multiple different distros (Debian, Fedora, Arch at least), and after I install them through their interfaces, the system reboots and brings me to a completely blank screen, save for the wallpaper of whatever distro I was installing at the time. It seems to act like there is another display connected, as when I move my mouse to the left side of the screen, it is not blocked by the edge, but seems to continue moving. I do not have an additional display connected to my system, and this has continued to happen.

Example on Debian

Linux Academy: Is registering for a free account the same as starting the "free 7-day trial"?

Fri, 2018-10-12 23:17

I was planning to create a free account so that I can see what things are available to watch at that level.

But I don't want to yet start the 7-day trial of the full version until some future week this fall when I have enough time that week to do a lot of course segments and labs.

Thanks for your help.

How to switch linux distros without losing data

Fri, 2018-10-12 22:59

Hey good folks!

So I want to switch distros(Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon to Linux Mint 19 xfce). Thing is I have a lot of stuff installed on my old distro. How can I easily transfer/reinstall all these software on to the new distro?

Partition details:
* Linux is installed on it's separate partition alongside Windows 10
* Linux has 3 partitions; one for the OS, one for the user, one for swap

Device Boot Start End Sectors Size Id Type /dev/sda1 * 2048 1026047 1024000 500M 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda2 1026048 248931477 247905430 118,2G 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda3 437676032 439551999 1875968 916M 27 Hidden NTFS WinRE /dev/sda4 248932350 437676031 188743682 90G 5 Extended /dev/sda5 248932352 308930559 59998208 28,6G 83 Linux /dev/sda6 308932608 324931583 15998976 7,6G 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sda7 324933632 437676031 112742400 53,8G 83 Linux submitted by /u/loser-two-point-o

Drastic drop in number of commits on Linux kernel?

Fri, 2018-10-12 22:40

Just saw this strange post over at Voat showing how the number of commits has dropped drastically over the past few months. The contributions graph is also seeing a similar drop.

I don't tend to follow Linux stuff very closely, so was wondering if the cause for the drop was related to the recent CoC maelstrom, or if there was a more benign reason?
