18.10 is out, my dudes!

Thu, 2018-10-18 18:37

Windows updates are driving me crazy but I'm scared of screwing up my only daily driver.

Thu, 2018-10-18 18:18

I have a HP x2 2 in 1. It is completely choked up with downloaded updates that cannot even complete because there is not enough space left on my storage. I'm so mad at Microsoft. Everything is crashing, web browsers, windows explorer, it's a nightmare. But it's my daily driver and I have no other hardware. I don't think the issue is the hardware itself, it's only a few months old. If I install Ubuntu (or lubuntu?) will most things work out of the box? There is no ethernet jack, will wifi work? My Bluetooth mouse? The trackpad, the touchscreen? I've tried CD Ubuntu boots before and found I couldn't access wifi for example. Most of the tools I use are open source, so no issues there, but is there an ubuntu alternative to 4K youtube to mp3, which I use a lot? I heard Final Fantasy VIII has no music with Proton at the moment so I have to wrap up a run of that first, but aside from that is there anything I need to be aware of?

Zabbix installation problenm with frontend

Thu, 2018-10-18 15:19


I recently decided to fire up Ubuntu 18.04 in my network and install Zabbix on it.

I had a lot of problems getting this up and running and I am not able to get frontend to work.

Has anyone tried to install Zabbix in Ubuntu Server 18.04.1 LTS? Any trick to it?

Track progress of existing process as it reads a file?

Thu, 2018-10-18 15:14

Is there any easy way to track the progress of an existing process as it reads a single file? I have a bunch of processes reading their way through a file, and I'd like to get a rough idea of how close they are to being finished...

I'd prefer to attach something to the process externally rather than run my processes in some kind of wrapper, though all options considered.

Is it just me, or has Libre Office writer always been unable to display the screen without frequent corruptions?

Thu, 2018-10-18 12:17

I love Libre Office, apart from they seem to endlessly add new features, but on my machine it has never been able to display a screen on Writer without frequent corruptions. This has gone on for years.

What I mean is, I make an edit, and then there is an obvious corruption of the screen, like the rendering engine is broken. When I scroll up and down then it is magically gone! Text mutates and becomes too small, or splits, weird lines and crushed up words appear. It is such a basic thing that needs sorting out.

I am using intel built in graphics on all my machines, still using xorg, on Libre Office 6x at the moment.

I think it is very important open source software, but if I were I company I could not use it as it is now with this problem.

How to setup postfix to directly send email to dovecot on the same server

Thu, 2018-10-18 10:39


so, I got this email server setup now:

  • MX DNS records are pointing to external email server (hosting service)
  • My local email server is downloading emails every 5 mins from the external email server (using cron+getmail)
  • My local server has configured dovecot for imap access
  • My local server has postfix SMTP server

My current problem is, that when I send email from my local address to my another local address using my local SMTP server, the email is sent to external email server according to MX records and than, only every 5 mins downloaded. I would like to set up postfix to send emails to local email addresses directly to dovecot, without going out of the localhost.

Please if anyone knows...

Can be this done anyhow?

Looking forward to your answers.

Utitlites on Ubuntu 16.04 to protect from ARP Spoofing or Poisoning

Thu, 2018-10-18 09:01

There has been a lot of users in my college's network using NetCut lately. I am using Ubuntu 16.04 so I cannot use NetCut obviously. So can you tell me which utilities or methods can I use to protect my device.

Preferably TuxCut alternatives.

Looking for a localhost Transparent http proxy(Not SQUID).

Thu, 2018-10-18 08:16

I am looking for a way to generate all the http/TCP connections made from my host. I know you can get squid to run as a proxy server to generate an access.log with all the information. I'm looking into a tool call mitmproxy but can't really seem to figure the logic behind.

Any help would be really appreciated.
