  1. Funtoo front page is comming up in Portugese or something. I think its trying to figure out where I am at by my IP, which is horribly broken quite often for network (horrible satellite and behind a NAT to boot). That part can't be fixed, but can you add a way to over-ride the auto-detect with some sort of "English" button.
  2. The problem with a native Joomla solution is that the files would have to be moved to where the web server can't get them and you'd need to always log in through Joomla. I want easy direct URLs with no Joomla crap. I don't want a Joomla module. I just don't want two sets of passwords. Under Apache, you have a number of auth modules to authenticate the user. I need to be able to do that with tengine Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  3. Oh... and one more thing. This wouldn't solve my problem at all. I want to avoid two sets of passwords. I doubt pyd.io will authenticate against my joomla database, will it? Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  4. I don't like the idea of having to install yet more software on my system, and then move these files out of the web server directory to somewhere else. Then, the pyd.io demo failed on my phone. I couldn't tap on the password field, had to use my tab key (which most keyboards don't have) and it still wouldn't log in. Not impressed. I just want to use a different authentication method in tengine. That shouldn't be too hard. Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  5. Right, and tengine only supports auth_basic which I have set now
  6. Tapatalk wont let me re-edit and my phone auto-corrected. Should have said Ebuild, not rebuild. Sorry Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  7. You misunderstood the problem. I can work with pam and all that. This isnt an admin question but more of a tengine question with some funtoo complications. OOTB, Nginx and tengine only support file based, auth_basic authentication. Joomla has its own authentication and user scheme which is backed by mysql. I have some stuff I want to protect in the file system so HTTP authentication makes more sense than relying on joomla to protect access (since you could always use a direct URL to bypass php) There is an external module which you either have to compile from source or install as an "extras" RPM which provides auth_pam. This is only ever mentioned for nginx, not tengine, but it should (in theory) be compatible especially if compiled from source against tengine's tree. Now, enter funtoo. There is no rebuild for this so if it works, it could get destroyed on the next update. I am NOT changing Linux user authentication. Pam can be used to authenticate any subsystem against anything else, so this one auth_pam would let nginx (and hopefully tengine) authenticate against anything. Make more sense now?

  8. No, I don't care about scalability and I doubt Ill ever have more than a handful of users (total). On a single machine ldap would be a waste as it uses mysql as its backend. And joomla is just a cms. I don't think it can auth against leap. Besides, I'm not trying to make this more complicated. I just don't want to have the password protection used for access to sensitive files to be different from the joomla password. I hate having to maintain multiple passwords for a single website and want to do that to someone else.
  9. I want to authenticate users against a mysql database (joomla) before allowing access to certain areas of the filesystem. I'm using tengine. I found an auth_pam that can be used to authenticate against myself through pam. How can I install this under funtoo for tengine? Anyone do anything like this before? Thanks Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  10. VNC isn't the best Protocol for remote viewing. If you are using Linux to Linux then plain X is better (ssh will just forward X connections if you tell it) and there are ways of adding compression and such on X. There are other methods too. For me, I don't do any remote GUI stuff since I use either satellite or cellular for my data connection. Byobu manages plain text shells, old school dumb terminal style. In fact, I used to use screen (one of the byobu backends) with a dial up modem! Then again, I've run X like that too using a low bandwidth X extension Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  11. It will always be an extension as it does change the way Gnome works. Docks and window lists always go on the overview screen as part of the modal interface. At first, I had turned on many of the same extensions to have a more familiar interface, but I found that I liked gnome better without them. I think of it like desktop icons... seems like a good idea until you have 20 windows open and need a 'show desktop' Icon to get to your desktop icons... but I rather like the 'Places' menu. However, I do wish the refresh button on the Wifi selection screen would be made a default! Surely not being to refresh the list of networks was an oversight and not a design choice.
  12. Gnome's Overview mode isn't about Expos?. Its about redesigning the interface into one that is modal. You don't have docks, taskbars, or app menus to launch programs mixed with your work. This is really different and takes a bit to get used to. This makes a lot of people hate Gnome 3. From a pure user-interface design stand-point, if you discount what people are used to, its much better. If your goal is to tailor your UI to what people are used to seeing then you just clone something else and Linux stays behind everyone else for innovations. So, you hit the Windows key and it enters a mode used to launch applications or switch between them (or switch desktops). This is also where your search is at. Someone asked me for someone's phone number and my cell phone was downstairs, so I tapped the Win key and typed part if the name. It pulled it from my Contacts list and gave me the info immediately. I have never opened the Gnome contact manager application. I had given Gnome Accounts my Google ID and allowed it to sync. It knows my contacts and gives me notifications of calendar events right on my desktop. Wanna hear a song? Tap Win and type the name. New notifications flash the screen back on temporarily so I can see it. Extensions will let you extend the search to the web if you like, or give you back your application menu or dock if you want to tailor your system. Its easily flexible and it works, out of the box, without me spending time fiddling with some lock screen trigger to fake Expose! And BTW, I wouldn't like a hot-spot since this doubles the mouse movements. Tap Win, select window, and I usually know where it will appear, so its VERY fast at task switching! Much faster than a hit-spot trigger or paging through an alt-tab list (although that's available) This is a level of integration that people are used to having on their phones, and now the Gnome desktop does it.
  13. Could you give more detail on that?
  14. Yeah I tend to use byobu (tmux) over ssh and in my drop-down terminal (I like having a terminal that survives my desktop) and Gnome for general desktop. And my laptop is touch screen and I think Gnome beats every other 'desktop' OS for touchscreen.
  15. Sounds kinda defensive! And I doubt you've got a keybinding that replicates Gnome's overview mode. For me, the apps I use are Gnome, so Gnome desktop makes sense. Luckily, Linux lets you choose
  16. I think it depends on your usage patterns. One isn't always better or you wouldn't have choices. If you have 20 apps all writing to different parts of the disk that would be way different than a benchmark. Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  17. Its a number of things. I like having things well integrated snd uniform. For generalbwork flow, I'm really liking the use of the Windows key for everything. Rather than trying to resize windows and then alt-tab between them, a single key gives me an overview and direct access to the window I want. A pull down terminal is always available via F2. Hardware support is cleanly integrated. For example, I frequently keep my phone plugged into USB. MTP works great. I tap one button on my phone and the MTP Icon goes away and USB networking is turned on. Tap it again and I'm back to MTP.
  18. Openbox, lxde, or xfce. The latter having the most features and eye-candy. Personally, I think if your hardware is so old that it can't run a modern desktop, you shouldn't put X on it at all. Anything modern, and Gnome isn't going to slow it down if you have enough RAM and RAM is cheap. The only thing thats slow on my system is Android Studio, and switching desktops isn't going to help, and its a fairly old AMD-based laptop at 1.6Ghz (max) ... then again, I have plenty of RAM and it doesn't swap. Point being, switching to a 'lighter' desktop won't speed up my work flow. Missing features could very well slow things down.
  19. Sounds like the examples need to be removed then
  20. The moment I do an 'su'

    /etc/login.defs

    Anyone see anything wrong with this line in /etc/login.defs ? MOTD_FILE /etc/motd Here's what I get: configuration error - unknown item 'MOTD_FILE' (notify administrator)
  22. I don't need an Android app. I'm trying to get jack compiled for Android. Its been ported, I just need to compile it. Although ... it would seem it not going to be easy!
  23. OK ... I'm pulling my hair out and I feel stupid ... especially since I'm all out of hair. *doh!* less is not interpretting the files I give it. For example, if I give it an HTML, it just shows me the raw HTML than formatting it. Its supposed to do this via the lesspipe program (installed) and the LESSOPEN environment variable, which is set and exported. lesspipe isn't getting run. Its in the PATH and I can run it manually. Anyone else seeing this?
  24. Very odd. Just installed it to 2 systems. It installed two versions. Version 1 outputs in s format suitable to be read by the shell. Version 2 does not. Odd change. Seems like going backwards.
