How to Install Adobe Acrobat Reader on Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver Linux -
The objective is to install Adobe Acrobat Reader on Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver Linux.

Please note that Adobe no longer supports Acrobat Reader for Linux. The latest native Linux version is 9.5.5 dated from 26/04/2013. From this reason you should refrain using/installing Adobe Acrobat Reader if possible to avoid potential vulnerabilities and hacker exploits.

xubuntu - Why does light-locker keep the screen black after unlock? - Ask Ubuntu
Q: A Xubuntu 16.04 fully patched machine with a freshly created user wont let me unlock after using light-locker to lock my screen (regardless if lock was activated manually or via timeout). The screen remains black (but powered) on correct password entry

Killing light-locker from tty1 will reveal the desktop then (and consequently prevents further locking). [...]

A: TL;DR: light-locker keeps the screen black if systemd cannot read /proc

* light-locker depends on dbus providing IPC.
* dbus depends on systemd-logind providing session information.
* systemd-logind depends on /proc providing process information. [...]

xfce - Xubuntu: black screen after lock screen (light-locker, lightdm, logind, xfce4-power-manager) - Ask Ubuntu
Q: [...] The problem is that when my laptop goes into lock screen (or maybe suspend but I always disable that in power management options so it shouldn't), then it is quite common that I am not able to login back to it. Screen stays black after opening lid and pressing a button. [...]

A: The issue is due to lightlocker and XFCE no longer playing well.

I was able to fix this issue by upgrading to XFCE 4.14 from the Xubuntu staging PPA, removing light-locker and installing xfce4-screensaver. Please note I did this from a clean install of 18.04.3, so you might need to restore any changed settings.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/staging
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt remove light-locker

encryption - Will changing password re-encrypt my home directory? - Ask Ubuntu
Q: I need to change my user password. Do I need to take any extra steps for my encrypted home directory to become inaccessible with my old password and only accessible with my new password?

A: There is no need to re-encrypt your home directory, and no further steps need to be taken.

Your home directory is not directly encrypted with your password. Instead, the passphrase used to encrypt the home directory is itself encrypted with your password.

When you change your password, the home directory passphrase is re-encrypted with your new password, so you should have continued access to your files with the new password. [...]

How items are structured | Internet Archive Blogs
An item is a logical “thing” that we present on one web page on An item may be one video file along with scans of the DVD cover, one book, one audio file, or a set of audio files that represent a CD , etc.

How do you know whether your files should be in one item or separate items? You get one metadata file per item. If the same metadata describes ALL of the files (like a CD), then that’s one item. If the files are too different to have the same metadata (title, creator, description, etc.), they should be in different items.

[SOLVED] Hibernate, 15.10, 16.04, Unity, systemd, tlp, wifi module reload, tuxonice
I thought I should share this in case anyone else has the similar problem and wants to know how to solve it. With the new systemd configuration, the Unity menu's "hibernate" option does not call on pm-hibernate. It instead uses the hibernate and sleep service of logind / systemd. I'm using a tuxonice kernel, and the tlp power management setup on a thinkpad w520, running Ubuntu 16.04 (devel). I think this article is still relevant even if you don't have tlp or tuxonice, since it's systemd that changes how suspend and hibernate work.

When this laptop suspends or hibernates, sometimes the wifi stops working when it wakes back up. The solution is to unload the wifi device driver module prior to sleep, and then reload it upon resume, the way the "hibernate" script does, and "pm-hibernate" also did.

Tp smapi - ThinkWiki
The tp_smapi kernel module exposes some features of the ThinkPad hardware/firmware via a sysfs interface. Currently, the main implemented functionality is control of battery charging and extended battery status. The tp_smapi software package also includes an improved version of the HDAPS driver. The underlying hardware interfaces are SMAPI and direct access to the embedded controller.

This driver uses undocumented features and direct hardware access, so it may work unreliably or even damage your hardware; but so far no such damage has been reported.

If you are installing on a recent Thinkpad that has an Ivy Bridge or newer processor (X230, T430, T530, etc.), tp_smapi will not work. You will be mostly limited to thinkpad-acpi capabilities. You can however set battery charge thresholds with tpacpi-bat.

hamishcoleman/thinkpad-ec: Infrastructure for examining and patching Thinkpad embedded controller firmware
The main purpose of this software is to patch the EC on xx30 series thinkpads to make the classic 7-row keyboards work. There are also patches included (but disabled by default) to disable the authentic battery validation check.

With the patches included here, you can install the classic keyboard hardware on many xx30 series laptops and make almost every key work properly. The only keys that are not working are Fn+F3 (Battery) and Fn+F12 (Hibernate)

Unfortunately, there are a small number of thinkpads with a model number from the "xx30" series that are using a completely different EC CPU and a different BIOS update strategy. Thus they are not currently able to be patched. This is known to be the case for at least the L430, L530 and E330.

This should be generalized for any port mapping (e.g. 80:8080 => P_src:P_target), and use best practices for modern *nix machines (e.g. Ubuntu).

N.B. This is all done locally, so there is no need to accept connections from anyone but localhost.

Q: [...] Such a such situation may occur if you have to work-around dependency problems with dpkg --force-*. One could also reproduce such a situation by deleting a file from /usr as root.

Is there a simple way to verify whether all files belonging to an installed package are present?

If a such a problem package is found, aptitude reinstall fixes the problem.

Setting up wireless roaming using 802.11r fast transition on OpenWRT · morph027
Ages ago, i was setting up 802.11r the complicated way using all the r0kh and r1kh lists across all access points, which worked well but was a little pita to setup.

After creating a little helper, i just discovered that recent OpenWRT builds can cope with the option ft_psk_generate_local to dynamically create the RADIUS keys and stuff. Even with Luci support, just enable 802.11r Fast Transition and Generate PMK locally, set a Mobility Domain (same across all AP’s per SSID) and a NAS ID (unique, i’d still prefer the BSSID w/o the colons) and it works out of the box.

404 Not Found [IP: 80]
Reading package lists... Done
E: The repository ' testing/updates Release' no longer has a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
E: Repository ' testing InRelease' changed its 'Codename' value from 'buster' to 'bullseye'

Finally got 802.11r roaming working : openwrt
[edit] Since people still find this post for advice, I'll quickly add a few notes.

Configuration has been vastly simplified with a recent OpenWRT release. Basically all you need is the following:

option mobility_domain 'e612' #same for all APs
option ieee80211r '1'
option ft_psk_generate_local '1'
option nasid 'xxxxxxxx' # different for all APs, AFAIK it will automatically derived from the MAC Address if omitted.

All this is availably via LuCI, go to "Wireless Security", enable "802.11r Fast Transition", enable "Generate PMK locally", that should be it. Unfortunately I lack the time and hardware to really test this. [...]

I would be happy to find a simple command line solution as I can script it to run when I want.

OpenWrt Project: IPsec Basics
A quick starters guide based on OpenWrt Barrier Breaker 14.07. Maybe it will save you and me time if one has to setup an IPsec VPN in the future. Hopefully it will encourage other people to use Openwrt as an IPsec VPN router. We cannot provide a graphical user interface at the moment but at least it is a solid alternative to commercial IPsec appliances.

OpenWrt Project: SQM (aka Smart Queue Management)
OpenWrt/LEDE has pre-built packages for controlling Bufferbloat - the undesirable latency that arises when the router buffers too much data. OpenWrt calls this SQM, although it's also called active queue management - AQM.

OpenWrt Project: Dumb AP / Access Point Only
This document describes how to create an Access Point (AP) that extends a network that already has a router, access control, and DHCP in place. People can connect over wireless or Ethernet to the new AP and then to the existing network. In this configuration, the AP is not routing packets, it does not provide DHCP or other functions. The result is a bridged LAN (no internal subnets) that will work fine for home and small networks.

OpenWrt Project: Failsafe Mode, Factory Reset, and Recovery Mode
OpenWrt offers several ways to “start over” with your router.

* Failsafe Mode is useful if you have lost control of your device, and it has become inaccessible, perhaps through a configuration error. It allows you to reboot the router into a basic operating state, retaining all your packages and (most) settings. (see Failsafe Mode)
* Factory Reset erases all your packages and settings, returning the router to its initial state after installing OpenWrt. (see Factory Reset)
* Recovery Mode allows you to install new firmware on a router that has become corrupted. (see Recovery Mode)

FEL is a low-level subroutine contained in the BootROM on Allwinner devices. It is used for initial programming and recovery of devices using USB.

Sticky-note-pin.png Your device therefore needs to be attached to a host (your PC) by means of a USB cable, connected to a port where the sunxi device will present itself as a USB 'slave' (i.e. in device mode). Usually that means the "OTG" connector.[1]

The firewall rule allowing SSH access is enabled, but is not configured to allow connections from GCP Console services. Source IP addresses for browser-based SSH sessions are dynamically allocated by GCP Console and can vary from session to session. For the feature to work, you must allow connections either from any IP address or from Google's IP address range which you can retrieve using public SPF records.
