WebDAV in Nautilus – connection to OneDrive?

By Sokołow

There is no official OneDrive client for Linux.
I figured that the easiest way to connect to OneDrive is mapping it by Webdav. In Windows, I can do that by click, drag-n-drop, etc 🙂 See http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/map-onedrive-network-drive

How I can do the same in Nautilus/other way?

How to hide or disable indicator applets per screen in a multi screen setting

By Jan

I have several screens set up in a ubuntu 16.10. Unity environment. One of them turned vertical for reading.

I also have a bunch of indicator applets running (I love them): Dropbox, system performance, CPU speed, network, keybourd layouts, batterie (mouse and laptop), sound, date and time. They need easily 600px of space.

Now menus are added to the left of the top panel, which works on my wide screens fine, but not on the vertical oriented, which is now only 1080px wide. Here is not enough space to show more than two menu entries.

I would like to hide some (best) or all indicator applets on the vertical screen.

Ideally I would like to place each indicator applet on a per screen base. Then I could use even more of them (yeah)

The only answers I could find were from 2011 saying “not possible”; any news?

VLC won’t play HEVC files in 14.04 LTS

By user178834

I’m unable to play HEVC files in VLC 2.2.4. I use 14.04 LTS. I tried the following solution.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:strukturag/libde265 
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install vlc-plugin-libde265

It doesn’t work. This is the error I’m getting.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
vlc-plugin-libde265 : Depends: libvlccore7 (>= 2.1.0) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

How do I fix this?

Rename files with one line

By guettli

I have this directory, and want to rename the files:

===> ls -1 Der-vierte-Weise/
10 - 10 - Erkenntniss.ogg
1 - 01 - Hoffnung.ogg
11 - 11 - Wahrheit.ogg
12 - 12 - Dankbarkeit.ogg
13 - 13 - Kredits.ogg
2 - 02 - Familie.ogg
3 - 03 - Demut.ogg
4 - 04 - Freude.ogg
5 - 05 - Schoenheit.ogg
6 - 06 - Solidaritaet.ogg
7 - 07 - Entscheidung.ogg
8 - 08 - Hilfe.ogg
9 - 09 - Unterstuetzung.ogg

The result should look like this:

===> ls -1 Der-vierte-Weise/
01 - Hoffnung.ogg
02 - Familie.ogg

I would like to solve this with common shell tools.

Ubuntu 12.04 unlock Keyring automatically upon login in ssh session. (Other than No password on keyring))

By Andy Rakoto

First I have a “login” keyring that is supposed to be unlocked upon login, it has the same login as my desktop login. Now, This works when a graphical session is used, however when I ssh into the machine, the keyring is not automatically unlocked.

I already setup all the pam_gnome_keyring config in pam login/ pam passwd but it still not working

Also, when sshing into the machine, the keyring daemon was not available.
So I added this into my ~/.bash_profile

eval dbus-launch --sh-syntax

How do I make keyring to be automatically unlocked upon login in ssh session.

Only One Resolution in Ubuntu 640 x 480

By ItsMeBrandonD

I am completely new to Ubuntu and I want to change my resolution as everything is so big that even navigating this site is a pain. I am running a GTX 1080 and when I check display options there is only one drop down option and that is 640 x 480. Is this a driver issue? Because this is what Windows did before I installed the driver. I did try to install the nvidia drivers b following a tutorial I found on gogle but when I put in a command my screen turned blue. Then after a restart the problem with the resolution persisted and I am ONLY able to get a more suitable resolution when starting through recovery mode. Also what is weird is my wifi dongle does not work anymore as if the installation of the GPU drivers did something. I need to know what.
