Yes, proprietary plug, your best bet is going to be a replacement universal PSU with interchangeable right-angle tips, like this:

[attachthumb=1]

Along with an adapter plug like this:

[attachthumb=2]

Although, it's still going to stick out 30mm-50mm.

Wouldn't it be easier to just reroute the power cord behind the laptop?

Or move the mouse?

Or just keep searching the internet until you find a replacement universal PSU that has the required right-angle plug.

OMG, how long has that been there?

Years. Grin

People were asking how to do it from the browser Play Store for years, (it would still be a lot easier) - didn't even think to look at the app ... time for my morning coffee I think  embarassed

EDIT: After using it, it's still a PITA since you apparently can't multi-select to delete.  Even though online guides say there's a Delete icon up the top, all I have is Install.

Moon Phase - runs directly as a Systray icon
MoonTool - minimise to have it run as a Systray icon

Both free.

This used to be a real annoyance with the Play Store - thanks allen  smiley

Can you not use Task Scheduler to execute a script to demap the drive when the computer goes to Sleep and/or Shutdown?

[attachthumb=1]

I made an EventLog filter back here for power events if you want to check the Event ID.

It would seem to be the simplest method.

You could probably use the Task Scheduler to run a script on wake up to check whether it's connected to the work LAN or not and run following mappings/commands as appropriate.

The other thing which annoys me about all the major stores is the way you can't really do refined searches and 99% of free apps come with ads or limitations which the vendors don't reveal until after you've installed the app.

Plus with Android, you can't remove what you've previously installed, (and probably no longer use), from the list kept in your account at the online Play Store - which is a f'n PITA.

See below

It would be easier if you just told us the laptop model then we can look up the plug/socket photos/specs - and considering that the plug sounds like it's going to be some proprietary shape, you're probably going to be out of luck.

My suggestion is move your laptop and mouse further away from each other.

Wonder if it's because yesterday I tried to upgrade my already upgraded v10 using the other deal ... needless to say, it told me it had already been upgraded  tongue

Thanks again, I'll pass this on also.
9  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Directory Opus 11 Released! on: December 14, 2014, 08:21:23 PM
In the past, when I'd download a file with Firefox, the downloaded file would show up immediately in the download folder when open in Dopus. With v. 11 however I thought something was wrong because I was looking all over the place in the folder for the latest downloaded file and couldn't find it. It was only after some considerable time that the file eventually showed up.

Has anyone else had that experience?

Yes, but it's always been some retarded AV that was the cause - the download would sit in Firefox/Pale Moon/etc at %100 for up to 15 seconds before the AV program would finally decide it's OK.

It's why I always try to use an AV where I can set at what point a file gets scanned, and writing it isn't one of them.

@wraith808: I guess if you'd read the books or any of the hype then you'd know they were aimed squarely at teens.  I usually just go, "Sci-Fi, I'll have to give it a try."   smiley

Plus, I guess, it's the hope that maybe one of these films will actually be worth the time undecided

@Ren: Unfortunately those aspects of Equilibrium didn't carry over very well into Ultraviolet.

^That's a link.

After inserting a valid email address, you need to join the Indie Gala Steam group and verify a Captcha.  Haven't tried it because I already have Afterfall: Insanity


Also, if you spend at least $10 in their store you get a free copy of Afterfall Reconquest Episode 1.

I'm starting to find these movies rather tedious being, seemingly, rather teen oriented.

Divergent
The Maze Runner (first of what seems to be a series)
The Hunger Games
The Giver (which reminded me of a toned down PG13 version of the far better Equilibrium)
etc

BTW, if you don't mind sharing, if you execute 'which grep' on the command line, what is the result you see?

Well, it was a minimal install, I had to install which before I could 'which grep'  smiley

Answer was the same as the 'whereis grep' in the OP: /usr/bin/grep

Which leads us to:

Quote
A quick glance suggests that .install.sh is checking for grep ...

 wallbash wallbash wallbash Stupid, stupid, STUPID - I didn't think to do ls -A in the directory  embarassed

Now I can see why it failed, not so much that it couldn't find grep but that which wasn't installed ... aaarrgghhhh!

As soon as which was installed, it worked.

Thanks guys and especially you ewemoa  Thmbsup Thmbsup

Is probably another Swiss, since French and German (beyond his seemingly English OS) is to be found in his screenshot

Since I've also had software that provides the exact same filenames, I guess that makes me Italian ... or French ... or German ... or North American ... or English ... or Australian ... or a New Zealander ... or Spanish ... or Argentinian ... or Mexican ... or just another human stuck on a planet full of them.

Could it be that the make script messes up your $PATH setting ?

I don't think so, $PATH is the same after running make as it was before running, of course that doesn't preclude it being changed while it's running and reverting afterwards.

The same source compiled successfully on both CentOS 5 & 6, x86 & x64, without a problem - the only difference, (other than OS), being that those VPSs weren't minimal installs.

Quote
Or does it switch to another user-context for executing stuff (sudo <otheruser>) ?

Again, I don't think so, this is a fresh install of CentOS 7 so there's only whatever users are created at that point and I only log in as root, (I really should get out of that habit).

Link to source code / tarball under consideration?

http://www.softether-down...17-linux-x64-64bit.tar.gz

Using these instructions: Installing SoftEther VPN 4 on CentOS 6.5 Minimal x86_64

Doing a search just now I've found someone hosting an rpm for it, I may try that, (which isn't ideal), if I can't get it to build.

It's almost Christmas, so it must be time to look at physics!

Considering I first read that almost 40 years ago, you have a lot of catching up to do  tongue
20  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: A little CentOS 7 help please :) on: December 12, 2014, 06:46:09 AM
Odd.  Grep is usually in /bin/grep rather than /usr/bin/grep from my experience.

I added /bin to $PATH but it made no difference, (even though there is a /bin/grep).

Forgot to mention it's x64 but I don't think that'll make a difference.
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / A little CentOS 7 help please :) on: December 12, 2014, 04:50:44 AM
I hope one of our Linux gurus can give me a hand with this.

I've just installed CentOS 7 Minimal on a VPS and I'm trying to get SoftEther VPN server working on it, for which I need to download and compile it, (which I've done on 3 other CentOS 5 & 6 VPSs).

However, when I run the make command I get:

Quote
[root@wc vpnserver]# make
"grep" command not found.
Installation is aborted.
make: *** [default] Error 1

Which is a bit strange as I can use grep from the command line without a problem.

Output of $PATH and whereis:
Quote
[root@wc vpnserver]# echo $PATH
/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/root/bin
[root@wc vpnserver]# whereis grep
grep: /usr/bin/grep /usr/share/man/man1/grep.1.gz
[root@wc vpnserver]#

Any one got any ideas I can try please?

A few panoramas from my last trip, (these have been reduced to about 20-30% of their full size):

Pink flamingoes at Walvis Bayw:
[attachthumb=1]

Jamestown from about halfway up Jacob's Ladderw (supposedly 699 or 700 steps, I forgot to count):
[attachthumb=2]

Ascension Islandw, the uninhabited side.  Unfortunately we weren't in the 15% of ships who actually get to land, there's no pier, (just a rock outcrop), so if the sea isn't dead flat you're out of luck.
[attachthumb=3]

Mindelow:

Pop quiz: Who can identify the type of the half submerged boat to the left of the ARMAS ferry?

For interest: 12,515 geotagged digital photos.

For Outpost Security Suite, if you're lucky they may run another lifetime license deal at the end of the year, (3 PC lifetime license for the cost of a single year) - they've had two that I know of in the last few years.
