Uh oh, so you're working on some super l33t code or other stuff that is super important and Linux Mint's MATE or Cinnamon window manager freezes. This means maybe you can move your mouse but you can't click anything, you can't Alt + Tab to another program but everything appears to be working other than that.
The first thing you would do is Ctrl + Alt + F1 (or whatever virtual terminal you want) and get into the Linux bash prompt (the black screen where things really happen :))........
Perhaps you've just seen this in the bash prompt:
Instead of the expected user@hostname#
It is probably because you are missing .bash_profile or .bashrc in your home directory
Check for yourself:
ls -al ~/|grep -E ".bash_profile|.bashrc"
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root&nbs........
Usually this is because when you created your user you added a user but didn't create their home directory and/or for some reason your .bashrc and .bash_profile in ~ (home) is broken/missing.
In your home just create the following files with the following content to solve it:
.bashrc and .bash_profile.
To apply it just relogin/start a new bash session

We all know Linux is known for good memory management but is it really? It seems all on its own with hardly anything running that you can come back in days or weeks and find that almost all of your RAMis used!
And many will say "no don't worry it's buffers for optimization" but it doesn't seem to help because what is in buffers is not available to use for new programs running or ones that allocate more RAM as far as Ican tell.
The reason Iknow........
You can search for this bug and it seems like it may be related to ecryptfs and is many years old.
The symptoms are that you return to the computer and the screensaver was active or the screen was asleep/black and it doesn't seem to come back. But you check by SSH the computer is running fine and are frustrated you'll lose your running programs and have to reboot.
There is a simple solution:
Ctrl + Alt + F1
Ctrl +Alt + F8
In xplayer Iget the following error "Could not initialize supporting library.". It actually looks more like a gstreamer issue.
For those wondering what the default video player is called it is "xvid" and not "totem" anymore like previous versions.
Basically it looks like some codecs are missing when I uninstalled another program it uninstalled other programs and codecs that it shouldn't have.
I've tried installing all the gstre........
Centos 6 requires GLIBC 2.12 however a lot of new programs you would want to compile may need a newer glibc. You can't remove the old glibc since the whole OS is based on it but you can install the updated glibc alongside it and do an export pointing to your updated GLIBC.

This is mainly the case on Centos but applies to other distros and situations. If you are running programs in the background with the &, at least in Centos it is usually not honored and if you quit or are disconnected the backgrounded programs will be sent sighup and be shut down.
The simplest way around this instead of using & is to start any programs or commands with "nohup"
First of all if you're getting this error it is a result of extreme database activity. If you aren't expecting it or it doesn't make sense to you 99% of the time this is a database driven script being exploited (some common examples I see often are things like phpBB being hit by dozens, hundreds or thousands of bots making constant DB write requests).
The easiest way to identify this is to restart MySQL and then run the third party tool "mtop" and you'll see all........

Usually a lot of things don't work right on Linux, but Samsung printers aren't one of them. I used to have a CLP310N that never worked right in Linux, it would print strange lines over pictures or with some programs, no picture at all. I was using whatever the default driver that Ubuntu found.
Now I upgraded to a CLP-365W which is basically the same thing with wireless but no driver from Ubuntu (eg CLP-350) works. I was forced to go to Samsung's site and was surprise........

Ihave often found several gigabytes of temporary files in there! Just be warned that they may not all be deletable if the files are being used by open programs (so close everything you can).
This helped me in a pinch many times when for apparently no reason gigs of disk space are being used for an unknown reason.........
In bash you test like this for problems that can be caused by non-printable characters since if you don't know how to identify it because it basically breaks your script.
echo "url=$url" should print something like this normally if you have properly formatted input/text:
But if you have some weird hidden characters (not visible in a text editor of any sort you'll get something like this
I searched for days after getting my Galaxy Note and couldn't find a way to do this (at least not without buying programs for either Android/Windows). All I read was ways to sync and import the contacts to GMail but I don't want to use GMail for privacy reasons. GMail/Google steal all of your personal information and use it for whatever purposes they want to and may sell or release it to who knows where (I don't care what their policy says but this stuff happens), just like the default........
It's actually fairly straight forward:
load data local infile 'billpayments-payments.csv' into table payments
fields terminated by ','
enclosed by '"'
lines terminated by 'n'
The above assumes that your fields are terminated by a comma (some programs like OpenOffice change this to a semi-colon ;) and that they are enclosed with "
The above will insert the data from billpayments-payments.csv into the table payments.........
After an upgrade wine wouldn't open anything, not even the pre-installed notepad.
There are no wine logs and nothing is mentioned in any standard log file about why.
I finally decided to run wine from the shell and see what's going on:
wine client error:0: version mismatch 398/402.
Your wineserver binary was not upgraded correctly,
or you have an older one somewhere in your PATH.
Or maybe the wrong wineserver is still running?........
