arch is easier to fine tune when installing.

#2 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » A Number of Linux Distros Store Wi-Fi Passwords in Plain Text... » 2013-12-29 06:05:15

since networking is a admin function you could just set permissions on the stored file for root read write only. or just dont save pass words. what i would  lile to see is some kind of piping to gpg or somthing like have a universal(or many) encrypted files for you passwords whether networks or anything.

#3 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » 16Gb ram - Do I need swap? » 2013-12-17 05:03:46

you do not need it and ram is faster. just take it out of fstab and if you want delete partition and resize(normally will work without problems). I have only 3gig of ram and hardly ever goes to swap(actually I have never seen it above 0) though I do have swap of 120 mb just incase. I would say if you have a gig of ram or lower you would need it. on my computer #! on normal desktop operations has never gone over 600-700 mb of ram usage including multible windows and watching video.

#4 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Where are you asking help?! » 2013-12-17 04:23:48

linux for the most part is linux and just because you use one distro does not mean you can not use other forums wiki's. google/"any search engine" is great for finding queries no matter the distro as long as you know how your system is set you can implemint most. I have yet to find a better wiki than arch's.

#5 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » How do you get energy to function normally (excluding caffeine) » 2013-12-10 02:28:40

a nice power walk or even running or any active body movement for that matter but something that gets the blood moving so to speak.

#6 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [SOLVED]Crunchbang is driving me CRAZY!!! » 2013-12-02 05:47:38

The directory I have is /etc/fstab.d, is that the one you're talking about?

no fstab.d is a directory fstab is further down and show how you mount your partitions for instance rw it may also be a bootloader problem but this should not be a problem in a default #! install.

#9 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [SOLVED]Crunchbang is driving me CRAZY!!! » 2013-12-02 04:21:52

do you have gksu installed?

it seems you can not open libreoffice though which should not have permissions. where there is always a reson for things as long as it is a fluke there is no reason not to reinstall for sometime pinpointing can be tedius and laborius.

try turning this

into this

[{ "full_text" : "  Up: ${uptime_short}  " , "color" : "\#8AE234" } ],

#12 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Does Anyone Know of Any Good Salon Software? » 2013-11-20 10:32:49

I do not think he will find anything like that specialized software but he could try wine. There is also a few accounting software in repo or just database/spreadsheet it.

#13 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [Solved] No root password » 2013-11-20 05:38:34

it is in a option during installation as well at least it is in advanced install.

also if you want to use root passwd in sudo just add

Defaults    rootpw

to visudo at the top with the other defaults.

a nice thing for common commands you may use or long lines commonly used it to use alias's in ~/bashrc or /etc/bash.bashrc or even source to any file just for your alias's

in example

if [ -f ~/.aliases ]; then
	. ~/.aliases
alias wl="sudo iwlist wlan0 scanning | egrep 'Cell |Encryption|Quality|Last beacon|ESSID'"

#14 Re: Feedback & Suggestions » #! for smart phones or tablets? » 2013-11-08 00:28:48

there is the android for instance where you can ssh into an installation or a installation structure to have extensive capabilities within console and front end like ncurses. to make things like cell to work would maybe implementing hacking the cell service(device system proccess) for your carrier to work with some program or create one this would be for a fully implemented linux install and with the hardware at these sizes its a matter of time if the buisnesses allow it unrestricted. there would need to also be better implementation for touch screen though.

#15 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Mount partitions on startup without hurting thunar » 2013-11-06 03:06:56

you could mount via /media as has been said as well as user unless you want root only. thunar drive management is good even in stable.

#16 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Persisting xrandr settings with a nouveau driver » 2013-11-04 08:54:20

you could put that file it created in your home folder in ~/.config/openbox/autostart (exec intry) or add your needs to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nouveau.conf(this would be the system wide option)

#17 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Adobe - hacked » 2013-10-06 08:22:46

I have always hated the word hacker for people who exploit and crack systems. it gives hackers a bad name in the eyes of most. Someone/s have resently also hit github again with ddos.this is not really about adobe it is about anyone if accounts can get cracked at though source by who knows who. Imagine if it has enough information for identity theft or I dont know I am sure there are other pretty bad things people can do which what ever info that will effect us as well as the companies. the companies need to do their best but it is us as well who need to keep these things in mind. there is nothing wrong with trust but absolute trust is just silly.

#18 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Parted Magic ISO no longer free to download » 2013-09-30 23:49:00

if you like it pay for it..or donate if you can. parted there is probably older versions that are around for free. not to mention gparted is pretty much a givin in most liveCD's. most tools needed are in live cd's if not graphical cli that said prevalience is nice and good interface is as well.

#20 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » what hidden features of a program have you found recently? » 2013-09-30 18:03:04

finding that I can use dtach with rtorrent to create a headless rtorrent is nice. also scripted init.d/rc.local to create a start/stop action on boot/shutdown so ya nice again.

the only time I have had that problem is on some text browsers and once you login you just reload page or change chaching options.

#22 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » Tips for privacy and security » 2013-09-28 08:21:11

encrypt emails in transit

use gpg with mutt check out archwiki mutt for setting up gpg and using encrypted saved passwords.

if you use public networks like cafe's,libraries,hotels,etc. or woried about sniffers why not encrypt those messeges with simple mutt config inputs. other clients are probably more self explanitory

set pgp_decode_command = "gpg %?p?--passphrase-fd 0? --no-verbose --batch --output - %f"
set pgp_verify_command = "gpg --no-verbose --batch --output - --verify %s %f" 
set pgp_decrypt_command = "gpg --passphrase-fd 0 --no-verbose --batch --output - %f"
set pgp_sign_command = "gpg --no-verbose --batch --output - --passphrase-fd 0 --armor --detach-sign --textmode %?a?-u %a? %f"
set pgp_clearsign_command = "gpg --no-verbose --batch --output - --passphrase-fd 0 --armor --textmode --clearsign %?a?-u %a? %f"
set pgp_encrypt_only_command = "pgpewrap gpg --batch --quiet --no-verbose --output - --encrypt --textmode --armor --always-trust --e
set pgp_encrypt_sign_command = "pgpewrap gpg --passphrase-fd 0 --batch --quiet --no-verbose --textmode --output - --encrypt --sign %
set pgp_import_command = "gpg --no-verbose --import -v %f"
set pgp_export_command = "gpg --no-verbose --export --armor %r"
set pgp_verify_key_command = "gpg --no-verbose --batch --fingerprint --check-sigs %r"
set pgp_list_pubring_command = "gpg --no-verbose --batch --with-colons --list-keys %r"
set pgp_list_secring_command = "gpg --no-verbose --batch --with-colons --list-secret-keys %r"
set pgp_autosign = yes
set pgp_sign_as = 0x######## # to find your public key use gpg --list-keys
set pgp_replyencrypt = yes
set pgp_timeout = 1800
set pgp_good_sign = "^gpg: Good signature from"

the default server in debian gpg is a front for many servers so it will let your public key be known to the servers it pipes to.

for better privacy in that not putting your used keys on sites would entail giving them to the resipient by other means and editing the above.

#24 Re: CrunchBang Talk » Is a reusing or sharing a /home partition actually a good thing? » 2013-09-24 10:06:26

where different distro's can have different configs and updated versions of software with differnt configurations or tweek it is best to have different user folders. one thing you can do is create symbolic links from a share partition/folder and thus link to each user ie music,bin,etc and add all users(even though they are you) to the same group. Home is just a folder for multible users or one user so there is nothing wrong with using the same home folder.
