Installation of sqldeveloper on ubuntu 12.4


First, make sure you have JDK 7 installed. Then,
  1. Install alien with the command sudo apt-get install alien. This is used to convert RPM packages
  2. Download the Oracle SQL Developer package if you have not done so already.
  3. Run alien on the RPM package: alien -d package.rpm.
  4. Install the package with the command sudo dpkg -i package.deb. If there is a message saying there is a dependency problem while installing it, you can fix it by running sudo apt-get -f install.

Installing Ubuntu Server on Dell Dimension 2400?


Step 1:
The Ubuntu Linux operating system is available either with or without a desktop environment. The version with the desktop environment is meant for personal use and includes word processing, email and graphic editing software. The version without the desktop environment is called "Ubuntu Server." The server version does not come with any graphical software or productivity software. There are three different desktop environments available for the Ubuntu operating system. The default is the Gnome desktop. The other two are the KDE and the XFCE desktop environments.

Log into the server. Type the command "sudo apt-get update" to update the list of software packages available. Type the command "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop" to install the Gnome desktop. Type the command "sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop" to install the XFCE desktop. Type the command "sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop" to install the KDE desktop. Type the command "sudo reboot" to reboot the server. Ubuntu Linux Tutorials,Howtos,Tips & News http://www.ubuntugeek.com/install-gui-in-ubuntu-server.html

Root Password


Hi Daniel,
Ubuntu has the root account locked by default. If you need to run as root, you use sudo username (This is recommended)
If you want to have a root shell on an Ubuntu system (It is not suggestedsuggested)
sudo -i
This is equivalent to the "su -" command sudo -s
This is equivalent to the "su" command

INetd service stop


Open a command prompt.

sudo kill inetd

However inetd may be needed by other applications that you're wanting to run.

Kill command will shut down any application you desire. sudo, of course is to give you root access and will enable you the ability to do anything. It will require the root password as well.

Audacity sound ubuntu


Your command is slightly flawed. Try again as follows, making sure to include all spaces (copy and paste the command if it'll help)

sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils start

Note the space between sudo and /etc/blahblah and the space between /etc/blahblah and start. Also note the occlusion of the second L to the end of the alsa-utils command.

Hope this helps,

Running Mac Os X 10.4.11 my finder keeps resetting by itself


  1. Log in as an administrator.
  2. Open Terminal (in /Applications/Utilities).
  3. Type the following commands, each on a single line and followed by Return (enter an admin password when prompted):

sudo dscl . create /Groups/username GroupMembership username

sudo dscl . change /Groups/username RecordName username _username
Replace the italicized "username" with your account username (which is also the name of the user's Home folder, in the Users folder). Remember to include the underscore "_" before your user name in the second command.
If you have more than one account on the computer affected by this issue, you should run these two commands again for each account, substituting with the appropriate user name each time.
