Problem: I can’t click with my touchpad in Knoppix. I can use USB/bluetooth mouse normally but the Laptop’s touchpad can’t be tapped to click.
Go to terminal and enter the following
Now try closing the terminal by tapping the [X] in the terminal window and it will work.
Note: This only works for the current session which means if you restart knoppix, the touchpad will be back to unclickable. I will update the post as soon as I discover the permanent solution to the problem. But as far as I am concerned, I can do that on every boot 🙂
Knoppix is very portable and easy to use. Being a developer, I know that it is important to keep your tools handy. This post is about installing Xampp in Knoppix. The following steps can get it running in no time ;D
Get the latest.tar.gzof Xampp and download it in a folder.
Go to the downloaded file’s folder using File Manager.
Open Terminal in the .tar.gzfile’s folder by pressing
Tools>Open Current Folder in Terminal
The next step will Install Xampp in /opt folder.
Type the following command in the terminal (make sure the name of the .tar.gz file is correct)
…:~$sudo tar xvfs NAME OF FILE.tar.gz -C/opt
Afterwards, you will see a lot of installation activity in the terminal window. When it finishes, it is necessary to change permissions to the htdocs folder in xampp in order to make development easy and possible.
Type the following in Terminal to allow file permissions in htdocs
…:~$chmod 777 /opt/lampp/htdocs
Now we can start Xampp
Now go to browser and type localhost and it will be working fine. Also check if phpmyadmin is working.
To stop Xampp services, go to terminal and type this
Afterwards, if you with to install a Windows program in Knoppix, then simply copy the setup on the desktop (makes it easy) and then click the setup file. If everything was set properly, then Wine will appear to install the program. It is important to note that some programs require some files (such as .dll files) which are mostly provided in Windows but not in Linux. Therefore it is important that those files are to be copied in the required folders.
Wine in Knoppix DVD version
As for those users of Knoppix who intend to use the DVD version, then there is no need to install anything because Wine comes as a pre-installed package in the DVD version.
I like the Sublime Text theme because it is easy to look at and everything looks readable. This is a must-have theme for Netbeans. It looks exactly like Sublime text and you sill keep all the features of Netbeans.
In this guide, you will learn to use CSS and JS files by calling them from the VIEW (not the controller). In the coming lessons, I will also write on importing assets using Controller but here, we are using views.
First, install Codeigniter using the method as described here.
Then make your own homepage using the method explained here.
Now that we are set up, lets get started!
Go to your Codeigniter folder and add a folder called assets such that it should look like this yourwebsite/assets/ For reference, look at the following
Inside /assets/ create three folders which should look like this
CSS folder named css
In the css folder, create style.css
Go to your homepage and paste the following in the <head> tag.
Please note that this guide is applicable on using XAMPP. For web server, you may have different folder paths for example:
