I am trying to set up some automated rsync'ing, with ssh. Using modules.
Here is what i have got so far:
I have generated a ssh key, and copy'ed it to the remote server. ssh login with no password works like a charm (ssh user@remote-server, does not ask for password anymore)
Rsync works if i do the following:rsync -rav --progress -e ssh user@remote-server:/some/folder/ /local/folder/
It does not ask for a password, and sync's over all the files as expected, everything nice here..
BUT i would like to use rsync modules for easy configuration, since i will be having a lot more that 1 client. i have the following in /etc/rsyncd.conf on the server:lock file = /var/run/rsync.lock log file = /var/log/rsyncd.log pid file = /var/run/rsyncd.pid uid = rsync gid = rsync  comment = test 1 path = /test/1/
then started the rsync daemon on the server using this:sudo rsync --daemon
(Yes, i ran it as root, but only for testing purpose here until it works to make sure it is not a permission problem) - The process is running, i can see it using "ps aux | grep rsync"
I then run the same rsync command on the client, but with the module name instead of the folder:rsync -rav --progress -e ssh user@remote-server::1 /local/folder/
But this fails. I get the following error and i don't understand what is wrong. could anyone help me out?:rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [Receiver] rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(605) [Receiver=3.0.9]

Canonical is making it really hard not to like Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Last week, I discussed about the improvements and new features which has landed in Ubuntu 14.04. Since then, two new features have been added. Both of them have been previewed in earlier development cycles but never made it to a release build, until now.
Now Canonical is introducing brand new lock screen in Ubuntu 14.04, which is simply gorgeous. We have seen glimpses of this lock screen in the past. The proposal for this change was given way back in 2011.The bug report can be found here. The new lock screen is handled by LightDM and so it resembles the login screen. Unlike the previous lock screen, it now integrates well with the rest of the OS. Some of the system indicators such as sound, calendar (no meetings requests are displayed), user switching menu and language indicator are accessible while the screen is locked. Locking the screen does not stop music or video playback.
Since leaving SCO, McBride’s life has continued with the sort of gangsteresque intrigue that defined him in the days when he was Linux’s public-enemy-number-one. Last May he made news when The Salt Lake Tribune reported that he had turned over a four year old audio recording of a conversation he had with Mark Shurtleff, who had been Utah’s Attorney General when the recording was made.
The conversation turned around a bad debt McBride was trying to collect.
It seems that McBride invested $286,000 with businessman Mark Robbins, who had promised a $5 million return which McBride had hoped to use to cover legal expenses in the SCO vs. IBM case. Unfortunately for McBride, Robbins skipped town to avoid being served a bench warrant in an unrelated civil case and was nowhere to be found. In an attempt to collect the debt, McBride established a website, Skyline Cowboy, which the Tribune described as “a sort of virtual bounty-hunting operation aimed at flushing out Robbins.”
I am looking for a CLI or GUI program that helps me cleaning up my home directory. The program would probably not be able to detect which config files or directories are still needed (though it could maybe compare installed packages and what files/folders these packages could create according to their package name)
Although I can just use the shell or a file manager to browse through my home directory, config files are often scattered in ~/.config, ~/.<appfolder> , ~/.local, ~/<appconfigfile>. Searching through all of them becomes tedious, particularly if you have installed a bunch of programs in the past.
What I am therefore looking for is a program that simply lists all config folders and files under ~/ and allows me to selectively delete them.
Do you know of such a program or are you using some sort of Bash function to accomplish this?submitted by orschiro

Hi, I'm currently running Linux mint 16 and am trying to make my battery last as long as possible. I am using tlp and trying to set the CPU_SCALING_MIN_FREQ_ON_BAT parameter to 800000. However, it seems to stay at 1.2GHz and will not go lower. Is there any way to force my CPU to scale to a lower clock speed?submitted by McMissile

Tonight I was thinking about a Steambox while playing some games with my friends. What I got to thinking was how difficult it is to connect and identify and tell my PC about the controllers connected to it.
Is there an application on Linux that can handle this better? Once Steam is in full swing I will never need to use Windows again, but in the meantime I was curious about this very annoying issue.submitted by DoctorSteve

Reddit: Is there a way to configure vpn connectivity such that all network access drops if the vpn disconnects?
I think I remember reading an article on how to achieve it, but I cannot find it again.
Basically I am setting it up so the VPN connection is made on boot.
After that I would like all data traffic to stop if the VPN connection drops for any reason.
Is there a way to do this?submitted by NoeticIntelligence
