COMx References under Bash CLI

Q: COMx References under Bash CLI

I've checked all the /dev/tty* references under Linux (bash) but none work for COM* access (via Python in my case). I've enumerated all available tty references using a simple python script but still unable to "decipher" the right string for the
serial access. The equivalent Python code runs under Debian Jessie without any issues (of course, the COMx reference there is slightly different). Please let me know how to access COM ports using bash in Linux for Windows (build 14965). Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Join me will you? Seriously though, I got Nero 9 awhile back. Had other versions of it over the years and knew it could be buggy, so I purposely only installed Nero Vision, to be used just for DVD burning.

After I first installed it, it was fine, and fairly fast. Now, for no reason that I can figure out, when I burn a project it slows to a crawl!

I would like to have ConvertXToDVD as my main DVD burning software but I had problems with it after Vista SP2.

I also occasionally use Ashampoo Burning Studio, which works fine. Very dependable. But it also is slow!

Hey guys, I have a hosted Linux server (Ubuntu 9.04) and I've been having a little problem with keeping up with maintenance and update (Team Fortress 2 Dedicated Server) sO started making a script however I'm a little stuck after reading up on things.

I originally planned on making a script that would run on start up, stay in memory and then when it got to a specified time it would do something like this:


# Shut down the TF2 server
kill %1

# Change to the needed directory for the next command
cd /home/games/srcds

# Tell steam to update the server files (if needed)
./steam -command update -game "tf2" -dir .

# Change to the needed folder for the next command
cd orangebox

# Start server
./srcds_run -console -game "tf" -port 27015 +ip +map cp_well +maxplayers 24

Now there are a number of things with e script that don't work.

kill %1 needs to be ran with sudo permissions (password prompt)
The update command for the server also needs to be executed with sudo permissions.
I could run the script as root however I need it to be the "games" user that is running the server.
I need to set it to run at a specified time.
I don't want to be running anything with NOPASSWD.

I've looked into doing it via cron (which I want to happen) but I'm not 100% on the best way to about doing it so that's why I'm asking you guys

So, this is a strange problem I'm facing these days. My OS is extremely stable except when I try to get Git to work. I don't remember exactly when this problem started but I did have git for windows installed since quite a while and I think this has been a recent occurrence (last 2-3 months)

What I have tried:
Uninstalled and reinstalled Git For Windows
Tried their beta releases as well as latest stable release
Installed Git on another drive
Tried using GitHub for windows as an alternative (Same result)
What I know is it can't be a hardware issue (except my hdd) since I have another OS installed on my secondary 160gb hard drive and git for windows works fine on it.
Lastly, sometimes the screen just freezes instead of giving a BSOD
I searched on google but couldn't find someone else facing this problem.
I have attached the debug files using the .bat file.

Any help is appreciated!

I have been playing around with an industrial Linux-powered scanner, and was making okay progress under XP.

This was made easier as I just ran some of the bash scripts through win-bash.

Since moving to Windows 7 of course this no longer works, even if I disable UAC completely.

I can only guess that the reason is that win-bash no longer works with Windows 7.

My question is will powershell fill the gap?

i.e. if this is my win-bash script what would the powershell equivalent look like, or am I barking up the wrong tree?

echo !TC | C:/win-bash/nc 80 > ScanFile.dta

p.s. nc = netcat and I know I need an alternative sooner rather than later

Do you have the Windows 2000 install software?

If you do then you might have to re-install Windows 2000 I do not think there is a way to rebuild the boot.ini file. I would suggest trying to install this hard drive into another computer as a slave drive and manually backup all of you data using a file manager. Then return it to this computer and do a full re-install of Windows 2000 on it.

So I went ahead and installed BASH to see if it will be of any use to me as as Linux and Raspberry Pi enthusiast.

It's very easy. Just go to Turn Windows features on or off and find Windows Subsystem for Linux (Beta) and tick to enable it.

Restart your PC, open a command prompt and type "bash" to install BASH...

That's it... you are ready to "sudo" away...

The first thing I did was try to connect remotely to my Raspberry Pi (in the other room) a la SSH terminal window. Just type "ssh [email protected]" where the X's correspond to your Pi's IP address. And presto! Goodbye PuTTY!

I mounted my NAS to the Pi and opened up "Media-On-Console" (MOC) on the Pi..

And now I can play my music from my NAS to the Raspberry Pi...

Or play my internet radio on the Pi..

These are just simple tasks just to test running BASH natively on Windows 10.

Hi to everybody around here. First, first time poster and reader here. Read that this one is the best Windows forum out there.

To do so, I shrunk the C: partititon and created a 100 GB partition for Linux Mint. 2- Tried Linux Mint but had some issues with the graphic drivers, so I decided to delete Linux Mint from my laptop and give Ubuntu a try since it's more compatible (IMO) with the hardware. 3- Rebooted, went into W8.1 using GRUB like always. Deleted Linux partition and integrated it again to C: 4- I thought I finished my work so turned off the PC and went to sleep. Next day after booting: GNU GRUB version 2.02~beta2-9ubuntu1 Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions. grub> Ok. Have to point out that: 1- Since is a laptop it came with W8 preinstalled, so I have no installation DVD to fix the MBR (in case that's what I have to do). 2- I have a bootable USB with Ubuntu, but even though I set USB as first boot device in BIOS, it is not recognized by GRUB or something, idk.

A:BASH-like line GRUB error after deleting Linux partition.

It's hard to understand/read what you did.

1.Windows will not be bootable because GRUB boot loaded puts it's own MBR.
2.to fix this either run startup repair from Windows installation media or install new Linux which wll hopefully recognize Windows partition during partitioning part, (while initiating installation)
3.In worst case scenario you'll have to learn how to use GRUB or manually put Windows MBR or reinstall Windows.

I'm writing my dissertation. I am using cross-references for both Tables and Figures (Word 2003). I'm also using EndNote for my references (I have no idea if this has anything to do with the problem).

The problem is that EVERYTIME I print, it does something weird and puts in a large amount of white space before a cross-reference. On average, 3/4 of a page of white space. If I click to the right of the last word before the reference, it highlights all the space as well as the cross-reference for deletion. If I put the cursor right before the cross-reference, I can just back space and delete it all. I delete it all the way back to the word before the cross-reference and add the proper spacing, save and print, it still does the same thing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am currently trying to make an IF statement in Word 2003 that will be conditional on (and auto-fill with) information in 2 different Text Form Fields.

The two fields are bookmarked as "Own1" and "Own2"

I would like it to simply display the input information in the "Own1" field if "Own2" contains no data, but display "Own1 and Own2" if Own2 does contain data.

Just to be very clear, here are the two different examples.
Ex. 1 - Own1 = John Smith ; Own2 is empty

Print - John Smith

Ex.2 - Own1 = John Smith ; Own2 = Jane Smith

Print John Smith and Jane Smith
{IF { FORMTEXT Own2 } <> "" "{ FORMTEXT Own1 } and { FORMTEXT Own2}" "{ FORMTEXT Own1 }" \* CHARFORMAT }

I currently have this as the IF statement and it doesn't work as I want. All it will display is "FORMTEXT" (I have tried this with REF in place of FORMTEXT and I get the same result), unconditional of any text being present in the "Own2" field. It seems as though the IF statement never gets to the comparison part of the IF statement.

Thanks for any help!

Good morning/afternoon to you all. First of, thanks a lot for letting me into the community. I hope we'll be able to exchange as often as possible. Well i'm a digital artist and i wanted to combine a professional laptop with some creative possibilities. So Yoga 260 seemed to be the best match (for its maneuvrability and integrated stylus)... to the point I saw the exact screen specifications... which are to be perfectly honest, pretty disappointing when it comes to refresh rate and Gamma/Adobe RGB range coverage. So i simply want to customize the hell of my future Yoga260 future acquisition, but I have 2 questions:Can any 12.5i multi-touch display do the trick, or must I get something compatible in any way.If I must get something compatible, which Full HD screen with better RGB ranges so i can do a better job ? Many thanks for any help you can provide me. All the Best max

A:Should my FireFox Browser contain references to chrome?

Hello and welcome:
That is not "Chrome-the-Google-browser". It is a different "Chrome", as explained here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Glossary/Chrome
