I am using a D-link DIR-628 and experiencing regular Wireless signal dropout. It is occurring on multiple wireless devices in my home, including a Macbook, an iPad, and an iPhone. It is hard for them to connect to the router when I come back home, and it frequently loses connection thereafter.
I am sure there is no problem of the incoming internet because my desktop that connects the internet via ethernet never dropouts. BTW, I am using a 5GHz wireless network, so there shouldn’t be many conflicts.
Since the current desktop manager of Ubuntu does not work with xRDP, an alternative desktop manager needs to be installed. In this post, we will use XFCE.
Install xRDP and XFCE
sudo apt-get install xrdp xfce4 xfce4-terminal gnome-icon-theme-full tango-icon-theme
First, create an
.xsession file in the home directory.
echo xfce4-session >~/.xsession
Then edit the startup file for xRDP
In this post, I will explain how to automatically mount your cloud folder with WebDAV. I will use GMX storage as an example (https://storage-file-eu.gmx.com/).
Besides the suggested base dependencies, also install
sudo apt install libpcsclite-dev cmake -DWITH_PCSC=ON -DWITH_SSE2=ON .
Then follow the Build section in the compilation instruction.
Download and unzip the brat v1.3
Move the folder to
/var/www/brat run ‘./install’. Follow the instruction to set username, password and email.
Since Python 2.7.9,
pip is released together with the Python. But I still cannot find it when our administrator installed the latest python on my PC. How to install pip, then create
virtualenv on Windows without the administrative permission?
python get-pip.py --user. It will install
python -m pip install --user virtualenv. This will install the package of virtualenv
python -m virtualenv ENVto create a new virtual environment.
ENVis a directory to place the new virtual environment.
- Activate the script by running
BibTeX is reference management software for formatting lists of references. It makes it easy to cite sources in a consistent manner. However, BibTex is typically used together with the LaTeX document preparation system.
On the other hand, Microsoft Word is still the most commonly used text editor and used in the group to share documents. Thus, I use BibTex to manage the bibliography and use MS Word to write documents.
One of the most famous reference manager software integrated in Word is EndNot, but unfortunately it is a very expensive and not open-source software. In Windows OS, there is a awesome plug-in called “Bib4Word”, but it is not usable in Max OS.
Suppose you have defined a package or a class, but how do you make it available at all times? One way is to just place it in the same folder as the .tex file, but that’s not what I’m after here. This post will tell you a way to “install” the package centrally on your computer.
1. Find out the directory. First, use this command at the command prompt to find out where your TeX home directory is.
2. Place files in the “right place”. Following the TeX directory structure, you should place your file in the “right place” like
~/texmf/tex/latex/packagename/packagename.sty. For a TDS-conformant system (TeX Directory Structure), the “right place” for a LaTeX .sty file is a suitably-named subdirectory of
texmf/tex/latex/. For a full list of “right place”s, please see LaTeX/Installing Extra Packages. Moreover, for the
beamer style, put the theme under
beamer/themes/ with “color”, “font”, “inner”, “outer”, and “theme” in seperated subdirectories.
After upgrading to Xubuntu 16.04, I found that the dropbox icon stopped working. The icon is black with a red slashed zero. I cannot click on it to bring up the dropbox menu.
The reason is that Dropbox starts to use “indicator area” for their tray icon instead of “notification area”. The problem can be fixed by running
$ dropbox stop && DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS="" dropbox start
$ dropbox stop && dbus-launch dropbox start
