Reddit: Ubuntu 14.04 problems with Virtual Box

Tuesday 1st of July 2014 03:37:33 AM

It's just a blank screen. No terminal or taskbar. I have tried so many things. All over the internet. 3D acceleration. Command lines including the update. Can't install guest additions because when I try it from root it always tells me I can't even after enabling file stuff with the network button thing. Sorry I dont remember what its called. It's in the recovery menu. I really would like to run it. Thanks!

LXer: Linux Top 3: CoreOS, Oracle Enterprise Linux 7 and Ubuntu 14.10

CoreOS is a different type of Linux operating system in that it is purpose built for Docker container virtualization and high-availability.

And is this possible on other distros?

Reddit: Two questions: 1 - how to run a Wine exe with a modified target? 2 - How to set/remember brightness settings? (Ubuntu 14.04)

Tuesday 1st of July 2014 03:15:11 AM

Good afternoon,

I'm having troubles setting automatic brightness to save on my chromebook. Im running Ubuntu 14.04 - on every reboot it gets to the desktop at 100% brightness. Im on a laptop - chromebook 14. I tried a few online walkthroughs but the files they said to use were incorrect - my brightness settings are in /home/user/intel_brightness/

Im trying to launch a video game that is hosted on a custom server. On my windows machine, it runs via this target : "E:\Games\Project 1999\eqgame.exe" patchme -w

Everything is set up fine on my linux machine (wine, winetricks, playonlinux), but I can't figure out how to edit exactly to run it with 'patchme -w'. Linux cmd terminal window seems to be the ticket, but im unsure of the command string needed.
