Hi I'm using Ubuntu 12.04.4 and when I run crontab -e it just prints 2721 and I can't do anything anymore, it just prints what I type.
Anybody any idea what this can be? Thanks!
Fixed: opening crontab in vi works. Just adding "export EDITOR=vi" & "export VISUAL=vi" to my .bachrc file makes it open in visubmitted by maesbn

I work at a small company and I've finally managed to convince my sysadmin to start migrating windows workstations to linux. The distro we've chosen is Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and my only problem is AD integration. Is there any fast way to join an AD domain with Linux? I've tried likewise-open and I've managed to login with my AD user but somehow hostnames wouldn't resolve. For example pinging computer xyz wouldn't work but pinging 192.168.0.5 (xyz's ip) was ok. I know this doesn't seem very much of a hustle but for our average users who know all the hostnames I would have a hard time convincing them to switch over. I remember I've once tried Fedora and it had some out of the box AD integration in gnome 3 but something similar in Ubuntu didn't managed to make it work. Any suggestions?submitted by Darth_bunny
