If I'd only read the first few instalments properly, I would have seen #2 about mounting & editing fstab. I did have a vague idea but this clarified it.  smile

Evening All,
I've just installed Sabayon XFCE over a previous #! lvm installation. I had two partitions

/dev/lvm/root

&

/dev/lvm/home

I thought that I had set up the installation using Anaconda (which I've not used before) correctly, but I haven't and I don't have access to my old home directory. When I do

lvdisplay

the partition is present, but I don't have access to it.
Is there something I can do to get access to my old /home directory?
Many thanks
Donkeyotay

I know that I can have applications permanently in tint2 for launching, but is it possible to have chrome apps in tint2?
Many thanks

Thanks for the quick reply. No our external ip address is different to this.

BTW, there are several "attached devices" sections: IP filtering, mac filtering plus a list of wireless devices under Device Connection Status, but this erroneous IP only appeared under IP filtering.

It would appear to have gone now! Very strange. hmm

Afternoon All,
While fiddling about with our Virgin Superhub router this morning. I noticed in Home > Advanced Settings > Security > IP filtering >  "Attached devices" an odd IP address. All home IP addresses start with: 192.168.0.XXX, this IP address is 108.40.95.64. I've googled IP lookup this number but can't seem to make head nor tail. It seems to be based in Baltimore, Maryland and would appear to use Verizon as its' ISP.

I changed the password on the router, but it still connects. I can't find anything exceptional in the house that connects to the router and am at a loss.

My main concern is that I'm not being used for nefarious purposes.

Can someone put my mind at rest please? :-)
Many thanks

If you're in the UK, I've used Morgan Computers (http://www.morgancomputers.co.uk/) several times & have been very happy.  I've bought a few Dell Latitudes and installed #! free of any hassle. The D420, D520 & D630 all seem to work without any work arounds. And Crunchbang runs beautifully.
HTH.

Morning All,
After doing an upgrade, I decided to move my pi to a new location so I shut it down. All seemed well, no error messages from the upgrade and the shutdown went as you would expect. I've now moved the pi to the new location but when I plug it in all I get is the red pwr light and it doesn't boot. I've had a look at the sd card on my laptop & all seems well, nothing obviously corrupted, I can mount & view both the partitions. Gparted also mounts & views the sd card.
What else can I check & do before reformatting & starting again sad
Many thanks

That's exactly what the problem is. Changing the theme, using lxappearance, to TropicBomb solved the problem.

Afternoon All,
I did a routine update & dist-upgrade & autoclean this morning and gthumb has stopped working. Using synapse or dmenu to start it, the screen flashes very briefly and nothing happens.
The syslog is reporting

Jul 11 12:32:08 daddy-laptop kernel: [15280.171390] gthumb[5983]: segfault at 18 ip b72e8150 sp bf87b930 error 4 in libgtk-3.so.0.800.2[b70bb000+512000]

I'm on Testing & using i3-wm. Everything else appears to be working properly.
Many thanks.

Afternoon All,
I'm having problems connecting to a VPN server I use (AirVPN). I'm running Testing and the NMApplet is at 0.9.8.0 and I'm getting the following message

Not authorized to control networking

I can connect using my tablet, so the problem is on my laptop rather than with AirVPN.
Any ideas?
All help gratefully received.

Many thanks Blackout.

I have no clue why you have added this line

Me either... it is the vagaries of cut & paste without looking properly  :8

However, I am loving i3 though, especially the tabbed mode. Which brings me on to another question, really trivial, but can I start i3 in tabbed mode? I've looked through the i3 site but can't see anything obvious.

#24 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Ideas to improve sound quality » 2013-06-13 11:18:13

Thanks for the replies.
I'm very happy with my speakers, which are powered (ie internal amplifier). I'm not sure how I can improve the variety of mp3, ogg & flac files I have, without ripping or downloading them all again (something for a quiet Sunday methinks smile )
Pulseaudio has been removed, so the only thing left to look at is maybe purchasing a DAC.
I may very well end up doing nothing because I can't really justify spending a lot of money on this if the end quality improvement will only be marginal.
Thoughts?

Afternoon all,
I have got mpd running on a raspberry pi. On the pi I have put a cheap usb sound card. It is certainly an improvement, but what else is there out there to further improve the quality of the sound. I've been reading about DAC such as the ESI Dr. Dac Nano
http://www.esi-audio.com/products/drdacnano/
and the FiiO E10 Headphone Amplifier
http://www.amazon.co.uk/FiiO-Headphone- … BK41G84MLA
and was wondering if anyone has used these or anything similar and if they would recommend them. Or whether there is something else I could do.
Your thoughts are gratefully appreciated.  smile
