More *precise* details are probably needed before someone can help you.

As a counter example, I can plug an analogue external monitor into my
Asus PRO31J F3JC laptop, which uses a nVidia GeForce Go 7300 graphics
chipset, and play with a Fn key to toggle between laptop display,
external display, or both at the same time. And that works without
making any changes to my Xorg configuration.

In this case, they both show the same display. But if I want them to
operate independently, then I do need play around
with my X
configuration.

Supported!

Adding [crap] to subjects just lengthens things, so there's less space
to read the subject line on many mailers.
It gets worse when you end up
with message subject lines like:

[crap] re: [crap] re: [crap] re: list subject

Thanks to idiots configuring it to be added before the "re" instead of
after it, and idiot list mail software not checking for its presence
before adding it.

'tis also against the RFCs to mess with the subject line (beyond adding
re or fwd prefixes).

Threading is not done by subject lines, but adding [crap] to the does
mess things up for those lumbered with doing threading the wrong way.
Changing a subject line also indicates new breakaways to a thread,
someone adding [crap] introduces such breaks.

I mention that for two reasons. The recursive crap I've already
mentioned, and some people who seem to be adding [fedora] to the subject
lines in their replies to this list which doesn't have [fedora] crap in
it to begin with. I haven't looked into whether that's users doing it,
or they're replying
through a stupid gateway.

Filtering should not be done by subject lines. That leads to private
messages getting filtered into list folders by clueless users, simply
because the keyword matched the filter. Who then get umpty about their
private messages being made public, when they're not, they just *think*
that they are. Or they reply to a private message, publicly, because
they're unaware of it and their mailer auto-messes-with message
addressing based on the folder they replied to.

Filtering/sorting should be done on other message headers. There's
plenty of options with this list to pick one that unabiguously
determines a message belongs with this list.

In short, it's a bad, stupid, and completely unnecessary thing to do.

I know in Gnome you can right click on the icon (badge/shield if I
recall correctly) in the top panel (by default that's where it is in
Gnome) and release root privileges immediately rather than waiting for
a timeout. Not on my Linux machine so can't check the other part of
your question.

In Gnome, at least, an icon appears in the taskbar while you've got
temporary root credentials, and you can right-click and keep them
longer, or abandon them immediately.

It's ages since I've used KDE, have a look if something appears when you
authenticate as root to use a configuration GUI tool in KDE.

I seem to recall that you could configure something to
do with PAM about
the timing, but only through hand editing configuration files. But it's
been years since I read anything about that.

I think that's kind of the point. If you're going to be out and set an
automatic response message, have the courtesy to prevent it from being
repeatedly sent to public mailing lists. Nothing is more infuriating
than having a list flooded with "So-and-so is currently out of the
office." messages every time someone posts something (I saw that idiocy
on W3C's public CSS mailing list once; boy, were the sysadmins PISSED
about it...).

OK folks. Here is
what I did to get the R java search applet working.

Note that this is on 32 bit F8, not 64 bit. Make any appropriate
adjustments as required.

1. Remove Iced Tea

sudo yum remove java-1.7.0-icedtea-*


2. Go to the java.sun.com web site and secure the appropriate JRE
download. In my case, it was:

jre-6u3-linux-i586-rpm.bin


3. Set the above to be executable:

chmod +x jre-6u3-linux-i586-rpm.bin


4. Run and install the above as root:

sudo ./jre-6u3-linux-i586-rpm.bin


5. Create the symlink to the JRE plugin:

cd ~/.mozilla/plugins
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0_03/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so


6. Be sure that you have no Firefox sessions open. If you do, close them all.


7. In R, type

help.start()


8. In the new Firefox session, click on the "Search Engine & Keywords" link


9. Pay attention to the lower left hand corner of the
Firefox status
line. If all went well, you should see:

Applet SearchEngine started

indicating that all should be well. Just to check, enter a keyword
(eg. 'plot') and hit the search button.

HTH. It is working for me here.

Cheers,

Marc Schwartz

For what it's worth, I only saw it the once, here. Auto-responders
shouldn't send those
messages to mailing lists, at all, really. There's
enough header information in this list's mail for it to be able to work
out whether it's a list or a person.

I wonder if the rest of him is out of the office, too? Maybe he just
has a hole in the wall... ;-

But I don't want them filtered or sorted, I want to know by looking at
the group of new subject lines which came through lists.

> In short, it's a bad, stupid, and completely unnecessary thing to do.

Works great on the large number of lists that do add a[listname] tag to
the subject line, [CentOS] for example.

I have a couple of questions;

Do you have compat-libstdc++-33 installed?

Did you do the Xinerama fix?

Why did you take out iced-tea?

Yes, it is. Read what it says and try again. Additional to the
digest's instructions: Edit out the parts of the digest that have
nothing to do with your message.

On the other hand, we have no idea what you're referring to. There's 15
different messages in that digest, and you've not done anything to point
out which message you're responding to.

The way some people misuse the digests is REALLY annoying. Apart from
it being a waste of bandwidth, the replies are completely ambiguous. It
reminds me of my *old* mother who has this stupid habit of asking
"what's this?" while she's in another room, and there's a brick wall
between us.

We don't know what "this" or "it" is unless we can see what you're
referring to, and we can't with posts like yours. This has nothing to
do with computer newbies, it's just common sense.

I can't see through brick walls.
