New users have gid 100 set as their primary group by default.  So, new
users are members of the group without having to be added to the group
in /etc/groups.


This might be specific to your installation.
Usually users have by default their own group.

Thanks all for the input. My problem originated from after the system

actually gview stands for G[tk] view (distributed in gvim package)


As gview is an essential part in my work, these days my work is stranded
due to it. I don't know how to fix it. Honestly.


If this program doesn't work under bullseye, but is known to work under
buster, then I see three main courses of action from which you might
choose:

1) Buy a new computer, install buster on it, and use gview on this.


you can also consider a remote computer.



2) Install buster inside a chroot, or a virtual machine, or some other
virtual layering technology, on your bullseye computer.  Run gview
within the virtual buster environment.


This looks the best solution here (for short and long term):
https://wiki.debian.org/Schroot



3) Reinstall buster instead of bullseye on your current machine.



4) dual boot: Buster / Bulleye (but heavy, so to avoid).



Once you've restored your ability to do your work, *then* you can try
to pursue long-term solutions so that you aren't stuck with a perpetual
out-of-date buster environment for this one program.

Jerome

Wayland, with a "d".  This is also true for Debian 10 (buster).

Re: which package is good for making poster

2021-11-02 Thread Jerome BENOIT

Hello,

I guess she meant `academic poster' not `decorative poster'.
Doing `academic poster' with a LaTeX package allow to share
`LaTeX code' between articles, presentations, posters, ...

my two cents,
Jerome

I will check one by one and see how it works.


Posters are usually a picture and some text.
It doesn't have to be like that but normally it is.
Do picture in Gimp, make transparent background if don't want in a box.
Scribus, make image frame, import image, fit image to frame.
make text box, write some text.

Actually, I recently used the tikzposter LaTeX package:

However I am not sure it is still maintained.

The classical tube remains a good option.

First things first: update your computer. Security fixes and fixes for

What Debian version are you running?

On what sort of computer?

Do you have screensavers or similar kicking in?

is there a temperature issue?

Are there logs?

A little more information would be helpful.

Estou voltando a utuilizar o Linux e escolhi o Debian para utilizar aqui na

1) Instalaei a versão 11 em um PC e rodo somente Linux neste PC

2) Sou programador pascal, desenvolvi um programa e gostaria que ao startar o 
Debian , este programa desenvolvido por mim abrisse em seguida na tela.

Encontrei alguma coisa na internet falando sobre

"Sessão de inicialização" . Porém não consegui chegar nessa tal de sessão..  se 
este for o caminho eu precisaria de um passo a passo.

Até porque simplismente instalei o Debian, mas não sei se para ter essa sessão 
disponível ficou faltando instalar algo.

Peço desculpas se não consegui transmitir minha dúvida de modo claro.

Se alguém puder me auxiliar, ficarei muito grato.





Re: LaTeX - Newer REVTEX on Debian ?

2021-07-04 Thread Jerome BENOIT

Hello,

my guess was that the bbl must be updated. Namely,
compose with apsrev4-2.bst (or one among the others).
I would check which one is actually used in the aux or blg file,
and I would check which one is actually pickup with kpsewhich(1).
For instance, you can try from a terminal:

kpsewhich -progname bibtex apsrev4-2.bst

You can also try first to compose (with latexmk for example) the examples
provided by REVTeX in order to check your installation.

PPA stuff is foreign to Debian: at one point some ubuntu material was introduce 
either by you
or somewhere else (in thsi case, it is a bug).
Ubuntu is build upon Debian, and bring its own stuff and policy. It is also 
more oriented
to regular user. But coming from Fedora, I guess that you are familiar with 
UN*X.

I would forget synpatic and use the command interface tools: aptidute(1), or 
better apt(1)
(along sudo  or as root). I am not a fan of graphical interfaces.

You are mixing Ubuntu with Debian here: we cannot install Ubuntu packages on 
Debian (and vice versa).
You have to choose either Debian or Ubuntu. If you want to play with ppa stuff, 
you must choose Ubuntu.
If you want to stick to Debian and install the PPA material, you may to 
consider to build your own Debian
packages from the Debian source that might be provided by PPA. This might be a

I was refering to the long option --rsyncable of gzip(1).
So, in fact the keyword I was looking for is delta-transfer .

My understanding is that you play with the Sid distribution. This distribution 
is unstable by nature,
and its main purpose is to test and check new packages.
You should rather consider to install Buster which by now can be can considered 
quite stable.

I understand that that all Debian users are not familiar with C,
hence the `even better' (that I understood as a possibility: `if you can do it 
(time+skill+...), please do it').
Anyway, good bug reports at the relevant place are better that complains at the 
wrong place.

I also understand that the issue with FireFox in Stable is recent (and came 
from security):
please give a chance to the involved maintainers to fix it.

The issue bother me too, BTW.

Nevertheless, in the /v/l/Xorg.0.log, DIP is still set to 96 .

I switched to the Default-hdpi style.
BTW, is there any list of HiDPI compatible theme ?

I also  managed to get readable fonts for my xterm consoles, and gvim.

So far, I could not fix the size of the button/icons for gvim and evince:

HiDPI migration: desktop environment issue

Hello, I am currently migrating to a HiDPI box (akda Retina box).

Since the arrival of GNOME3, I have used Xfce as an alternative to GNOME[2]:
I have been happy so far with this choice. Right now, I migrating to
a retina box: it appears, unfortunately, that Xfce support for HiDPI is low.
small (if not tiny) icons there, big fonts here; and so forth.
I have tried to fix it to stick to Xfce; after all Xfce is lightweight.
But the issue is that X is not yet ready to manage HiDPI properly:
a lot of tweaks are needed to get something almost readable.

I read that Cinnamon and MATE, both former clones of GNOME[2], have HiDPI in 
mind:
is there any other possibility ? which one is the best in terms of weight and 
HiDPI support ?

Thanks in advance,

We can also add the prefix im- to each executable.
For instance, the tools coming with the nauty package are prefixed with nauty-
to avoid name collision.

One of them concern Xfce: some time my fingers seem to do a combination of keys

 No problem here.  'shutdown -h now' (as root) works as it
 should. Wheezy 64-bit, fully up-to-date; no desktop
 environments installed, just Openbox window manager.  System
 boots to terminal, login there, then startx. I like to keep
 things simple.
 
 Maybe, problem is related to a desktop environment.

One of the main issues with Mac computers are related to UEFI:
- it appears that grub 2 now deals rather well with it;
- old machines may not have a proper UEFI firmware: this may be a major
  different between your old MacBook-Pro and a recent iMac.

There is a Debian website dedicated to MacBookPro machines.
Ubuntu also provides information.

DVD/CD drives are disappearing monsters.
Anyway, netinstall may hold on a lot of USB stick and is now able to
manage efi boot (Jessie 8.3)

Re: sexist content in the package openclipart2-png

2015-12-31 Thread Jerome BENOIT
Hello Fernando:

I am not sure that the debian-user forum is the best place for your message:
what I mean is that you may want to target better. The debian-user forum is 
meant
for end users who are not responsible for the content of the packages.

First, you may want to make a bugreport for the package asking to drop off 
these images
or to at least put them in a separate package with an explicit name (or 
something).
Second, you may address the issue to the debian-policy forum.

hth,
Jerome

My understanding is that HAL was ejected from Debian a long time ago.

 Right, but I meant all the other java alternatives. There are a bunch
 of them:
 
 ControlPanel, appletviewer, extcheck, idlj, jar, jarsigner, java,
 java-vm, javac, javadoc, javafxpackager, javah, javap, javaws, jcmd,
 jconsole, jdb, jexec, jhat, jinfo, jmc, jos, jrunscript, jsadebugd,
 jstat, jstatd, jvisualvm, keytool, the mozilla plugin which links to
 libnpip2.so, native2ascii, orbd, pack200, policytool, rmic, rmid,
 rmiregistry, schemagan, serialver, servertool, wsgen, wsimport, xjc.
 
 You made me look. :0  I didn't know half of these existed until I
 used that installer. It's just a script which will directly install
 Oracle Java FROM Oracle.

java-package allows to make Debian package Oracle Java from Oracle installers
through a bunch of scripts.
If all the proper alternatives are not set, it sounds as a bug.
I can hardly say whether or not all those alternatives are effectively needed
because I am not that familiar with java.


 Then after it sets everything right. I love
 it, as I am lazy and Andrew does a good job at it. Just a FYI, Ric

This kind of laziness is good, but sometime it is just better to favour Debian 
ways.
BTW, the Debian Java Maintainers does a good job as well.

Cheers,
Jerome

Re: Installing Linux on a Mac Mini without OSX

Hello,

 I was recently given a Mac Mini (Intel Mid 2007) that had been

 I tried to install Debian (Wheezy) on it, and the installer reported

 boot from the hard drive.

I would consider eject as a comfort at this stage.
The reboot issue is the real issue here.

 
 Googling finds me various pages about installing Linux where one of
 the steps is something like Boot into OSX

If you do not want a dual boot computer, forget this part and consider your box 
as
a regular box.

 
 Is there a way to install Debian/Linux on this machine that doesn't
 involve buying or borrowing (or borrowing) a copy of OSX? 

Take care as this model may be not be supported by last OS X.
You do not need it.

 Is it
 easier to install linux on a USB disk and run it off of that?
 
 Two particular subtasks that I may need to do that seem to require
 OSX: 1) Blessing a partition 2) Checking what version of firmware
 it has (some versions have BIOS compatibility)
 
 Any pointers/suggestions?

I will look towards a grub issue, specially if your partition is a gpt 
partition table.
For a gpt partition table, you must have a `bios grub' partition. 


 
 I'm also looking into PureDarwin as a possible solution.
 
Debian is definitely better, do not trust the folks on the PureDarwin forums.

Best wishes,
Jerome

I was just kidding.
 
 Ouch.
 
 I have not seen any extravagant claims on behalf of PureDarwin.  Mostly just 
 apologetic caveats that it's not quite yet ready for primetime.
 
 In any case, my interest in PureDarwin was primarily that it might have a 
 bless command and/or a way to query the firmware version.
 Other messages in this thread suggest that neither of these two things may be 
 fully necessary.

True.

 If you are using ifupdown you will likely be wanting to use a
 wpa-roam.conf in it. The Debian README for wpasupplicant is very
 detailed and helpful. Have a look at it and see whether you need
 to follow up on it here.
 
 

I already use this approach. The difficulty here is the coova login page.

 I'd like to chime in that I recently installed haveged myself and have
 seen a massive increase in available entropy.
 
 Haveged, as I understand it basically runs a fairly complex calculation
 (with lots of branches and things) in a loop. Because almost all CPUs
 these days are complex beasts, the time to perform the calculation
 varies with each loop (sometimes because of cache misses, or maybe a
 branch was optimized differently). Haveged monitors the differences in
 these times and populates a random pool based on it. This is then fed in
 to the kernel as another source of entropy.
 
 Haveged is amazingly useful on headless or virtual or appliance
 machines.

Unfortunately, it does not seem to work on OpenVZ boxes.

 It can be done through bind mounts (refer to the mount(8) manpage) or by

 Of course,

 but it won't be useful since nobody will collect the

 You need to either a) bind mount an existing /dev/log (as already

 to configure it to create and listen to an extra socket (as also
 already said).

So, I will stick this way.

Re: unable to renew ip

2014-03-07 Thread Jerome BENOIT
It is not up to you to assign the IP address, but to the DH server.
Your MAC address is there buffer.
The local DH server is window$. what renders thing harder.
You can try to remove your MAC from their memory by no connecting for a while
(days, weeks ?).
You can also try to send a fake MAC address to the DH server.

 Uh, that's part of the private class-B range (172.16.0.0/12). You're
 getting it from your local DHCP server.
 
 Only way to change that would be to drop the IP address, and then flush
 the DHCP server tables so that it doesn't re-assign you the same IP address.
 
 Short version of how it works is you get a lease for (e.g.) a day ...
 then when the day is up, your computer asks if the just expired
 address is still available.  If it is, the lease is renewed with the
 same IP address.
 

 For couple of hours, the interaction is unbearably slow.

 I changed to another cable, tried the `# dhcline -r` and `# dhclient`,

 Not sure how/why Jerome decided that the DHCP server is a windows box
 though.

As a matter of fact, it was meant to be a private email (sorry):
I know the place, the environment is a windows one;
and I experienced a lot of unexpected behaviour with 
the local DHCP server.


 
 Your IP address should have no effect on your connection speed (i.e.
 getting a new one won't help you any).  You have to find out what's
 causing your connection's throughput to be slow.
 
 Some possibilities:
 
 (LAN)
  - Other things using the network (torrents, youtube, VoIP, etc)
  - QoS limiting what you're trying to do (torrents, youtube) in favor
of something else (VoIP)
  - Router can't cope with the above
  - you've been hard-limited (on the router) to 10 mbit (or 100 mbit),
and you were on gbit.
 
 (WAN)
  - ISP has over-sold the loop (generally cable)
  - ISP has over-sold the backhaul (DSL, fiber)
  - ISP fscked up your modem's provisioning, and you're on (e.g.) 10/1
when you should be on 50/5 (etc.)
 
 
 

Cheers,
Jerome

 From man apt-get:
  upgrade
upgrade is used to install the newest versions of all
 packages currently installed on the
system from the sources enumerated in /etc/apt/sources.list.
 Packages currently installed
with new versions available are retrieved and upgraded; under
 no circumstances are
currently installed packages removed, or packages not already
 installed retrieved and
installed. New versions of currently installed packages that
 cannot be upgraded without
changing the install status of another package will be left
 at their current version. An
update must be performed first so that apt-get knows that new
 versions of packages are
available.

The next question: with which distribution are you playing ?
I guess not the stable (currently Whezzy).

 
 
 
 Have you tried to build deb balls from the debian source or to

 I've tried Fedora before, but Mac OSX and Fedora didn't exist simultaneous.
 
 This time I want to keep Mac OSX and install Debian.
 
 So do I just divide the disk into two parts and then install Debian on the 
 new part? Would it be tough or not smooth as I expect?
 
 BTW, What I wish is just to divide the disk, then install as what Live CD 
 tells me.

 Bonjour,

 I tried to change the screen resolution and the splash screen in grub:

 1- edited /etc/default/grub
 GRUB_GFXMODE=1280x1024
 That should work.

 GRUB_BACKGROUND=/usr/share/images/grub/Windbuchencom.tga

 2- run grub-update (it says that it has found the image, then done...)
 The correct command is update-grub or update-grub2 (they're
 essentially the same).

 3- rebooted and. nothing has changed! Resolution is still ugly and
 no splashscreen (the splashscreen is for fun, I don't need it) But I
 want to change the resolution (it is the default resolution of my screens)
 It's possible that grub can't switch to the resolution. Many graphics
 cards allow access to the basic VGA, SuperVGA etc modes (640x480,
 800x600, 1024x768) through the VESA BIOS. To get higher resolutions
 (including, perhaps, the native mode of an LCD panel) requires the full
 driver.

 4- I had a look to the file  /boot/grub/grub.cfg
 The location of the image had been wrongly written:
 share/images/grub/Windbuchencom.tga but the resolution is correctly set.
 share/images... probably indicates you've got /usr on a separate
 partition. Remember that grub doesn't use a full unix-style tree, but
 uses a forest (a bit more like Windows, really) of individual
 partitions. So the TGA file would likely be in (hd1,2)share/images... or
 similar.
 
 Thanks for your answer. Yes /usr is on a separate partition; shall put
 (hd1,2)share/images... in /etc/default/grub? And how to find the correct
 numbers? /usr is on /dev/sda2, but it is a a raid array, is grub able to
 read that?

I would put the image in the /boot partition, where the grub material is put:
see /boot/grub .
You may also customize the grub machinery to put the image
somewhere in the /boot partition: see /etc/grub.d material.


 What to do?

 In /etc/default/grub it is recommended to check the resolution using
 vbeinfo, I have no vbeinfo program and I cannot find one, what is the
 package with this program?
 That would be the grub-pc or equivalent package. Basically, the
 instruction is to boot into grub press 'c' at the menu (to give you a
 command line) then enter set pager=1 (return) vbeinfo (return).
 
 OK, that was useful, 1280x1024 is lIsted, but it does not work, I tried
 1024x768 without any success. And of course I made a typo in the mail, I
 ran update-grub (and not grub-update).

have you tried the following command ?

hwinfo --framebuffer


Keep in mind that grub is sometime capricious.

hth,
Jerome

 See attachment: auctex package is only a lisp package for emacs and

 packager craze!

 The easier solution I can see is to make an empty package with the
 name you want, and then use dpkg to install it.

 In few words, such a package can be made by creating a folder with the
 name of the final package (not sure that this naming stuff is
 required), say barfoo.
 Then, create the file barfoo/DEBIAN/control, and fill it with desired
 info, like this:
 ==
 barfoo/DEBIAN/control
 __
 Package: barfoo
 Version: X.Y.Z
 Section: whatever
 Priority: optional
 Architecture: all
 Maintainer: john doe j...@foobar.org
 Description: what do you think I am?
 ==
 Next step is to do #dpkg-deb -b barfoo ./  dpkg -i barfoo.deb and
 this will create and install your package.

 Now, you have two solutions: make a package for auctex, with the
 dependencies you want, or make dumb packages for it's dependencies you
 do not want. Of course, it auctex really depends on them, you will
 only achieve to break it... but I think you guessed that :)

 PS: there are probably a lot of better ways to create debian packages.
 But, this one seems the easiest one for me. You can also add other
 files in DEBIAN, so that the package manager can manage other
 informations like hash of the files... you can have all the examples
 you want from the debian's packages you will find in
 /var/cache/apt/archive. You just need to extract files from the debs,
 with a usual archive manager or dpkg itself, I do not know if there is
 a real difference.


 Thanks for the suggestion; I followed the command given by Andrew and it
 worked:
 
 dpkg --force-depends package.deb
 
 I don't understand the way packagers build the dependencies because I
 installed the same way another package, lyx,  which strongly depends on
 texlive (or other TeX installation) because you cannot use it without latex.
 
 The first time I launched lyx, it found without any problem my texlive
 installation which is on /opt debian installation of texlive (2012,
 one year late...) is on /usr.


2012 is so far away !

 
 Who can understand!
 

I am afraid you mixed up package dependencies and package (default) 
configurations.

Package dependency concerns dependency between piece of software,
and their default configuration assume a working Debian set up.
As you force your Debian box to work with a personalized set up,
at one stage you have to configure your box to reflect your specific set up:
for texlive, you may set up correctly the configuration file in /etc/texmf 
(mainly in /etc/texmf/texmf.d),
and update accordingly.  

hth,
Jerome

 Bonjour,
 
 As thunderbird is banned from debian, I try to setup my email account
 using icedove.
 
 It fails! For 2 reasons:
 
 1- I presume that icedove check if my email address is a valid address
 (and it is, I use it since almost 20 years at Paris Descartes
 University) in some data bases. As it seems to fail to find it, It
 reject it (even using manual configuration).
 
 2- I use to use an ssh tunnel to link some port (1048) of my machine to
 the smtp port of the mail server at the university. Icedove allows to
 only use ports 25, 587 and 465

I would install and configure exim (smarthost configuration) to play with smtp 
first.
Once your exim setup works as expected, then icedove can be configured to send 
via
the local port 25.

 
 
 What is this way of doing? Some people somewhere want to help ignorant
 people to configure their mail? Or is it now like in past SSSR: only one
 address for everybody? That's will easier for the NSA!
 
 
 What shall I do? Change my email address? Use mutt?
 
 Thank you for any help and sorry for the groaning!

Re: replacement for ide-generic in Wheezy?

Hello Gary,

 The various ide modules (ide-generic, ide-cdrom, etc.) seem to be missing in 
 the Wheezy kernel. However they still compile a 486 kernel so I'm assuming 
 there is some intent to continue to support older hardware.
 
 In my case, I have an old laptop that I could run Squeeze on by including 
 ide-generic in the /etc/initramfstool/modules file. However the same thing 
 doesn't work in Wheezy because there is no ide-generic module.
 
 Googling around, I found one post that suggested it's been superseded by 
 libata but I can't find that either.
 
 Is 486-era hardware still supported in the newer kernels or is this a lost 
 cause?
 

I guess that it is still supported by the kernel, but not by the kernel deb 
package as distributed by debian.
You may build your own kernel, and the following link is a good place to start:
