    RE: Minecraft on Chromebook
    Crouton is just an extension, you must be in developer mode to use it for a linux machine installation. As a note, under crouton you are installing a linux version within the base OS (Chrome). This will immediately require more memory and cpu cycles than a native installation. On top of that minecraft is a java based application that tries to take over all resources. If you wish to install minecraft within a crouton based OS, within the chrome OS on a low resource chromebook then expect it to run very badly if at all. The instructions for installing ubuntu on a chromebook using crouton can be found [url=http://www.linux.com/learn/tutorials/795730-how-to-easily-install-ubuntu-on-chromebook-with-crouton]here[/url],

    RE: How to install open cloud?
    The general term cloud itself can be quite confusing, just think of it as high redundancy offsite resources. There is cloud storage which is storing your data in a redundant offsite location which in most cases can easily be synced. This is what owncloud is doing, but it lacks the redundancy. Then there is cloud computing which is when a virtual machine for an operating system in installed in a cloud cluster machine, which can offer offsite processing, faster processing and it removes location dependence. However to use this platform you must accept that another business is holding your data and can control your cloud machine, due to this I highly recommend reading the terms of service for the services carefully to userstand the potential risk. Then there are cloud services such as SAAS (Software as a service), which is using the cloud infrastructure to deliver an application through the web browser. IF you wish to try a cloud computing then please look at the article at [url=http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/ec2-launch-instance_linux.html]aws.amazon.com[/url] for instuctions to start a cloud instance of a linux based machine.

    RE: When I start my laptop all my files are gone
    I am late to the conversation, but it sound like the first attempt was just run from the USB stick and not installed. The second attempt appears to have installed successfully, but the bootloader is not recognized which is why it is looking for the windows bootloader. It may be a case where EUFI is enabled on the system and the non-EUFI bootloader was installed and configured. If you reinstall ubuntu and follow the instructions at [url=https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI]help.ubuntu.com[/url], then the bootloader will automatically find the windows installation and correct the boot issue for windows while granting the option of system at boot time..

    RE: Need help with script
    Have you considered adding the timestamp on the subject to simplify output and using the -q option to send the file contents? Another option would be to output the timestamp into a file in tmp, then append the testfile on the end, send the file as the message and then delete the temp file. The second option is below: [code]TSTAMP ='date + %Y%m%d%H%M%S' filepath=/temp/ temppath=/tmp/ filename=testfile.$TSTAMP cat ${TSTAMP}>\tmp\${filename} cat ${filepath}${filename}>>${temppath}${filename} mail -q ${temppath}${filename} -s "test email" test@testemail.com rm ${temppath}${filename}[/code]

    RE: How To Install/Upgrade To Linux Kernel 3.18.1 stable In Ubuntu/Linux Mint
    These teaser posts do no community service as the value of the information disappears if or when the linked site goes down. If someone asks a question you can link to the other site for more information, but doing unsolicited link posts is not welcome in any part of the forum or site. As I stated in the other post, if you want your articles on this site then use the blogging feature and make them complete. This and your other post will be deleted within the next few hours only to allow enough time for you to see my replies. This is non-negotiable as you are in fact making it harder for people to find your original article by spamming other sites, lowering your search engine position and making the users just through links to find the source.
