Ubuntu Mate - Abiword at startup problem

Problem: Abiword starts at every log in to Mate.
Solution (source):


sudo rm -f /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Client.AbiCollab.service

Status: we'll see after next log in. Well ... it works all right.

Burning a Raspian

Burning a rapianpi SD-CARD became quite a challenge. My Laptop with Linux Mint could not do the trick. I tried and tried all afternoon. And a bit of the evening too. Stuff like: gparted, diskwriter etc. etc. etc.

Apache running my style tile.

But what worked. My seven year old server is a Debian KDE. It was just a matter of putting the darn card into the slot. Rightclick. Then format. Finally burn. That's it.

However, Raspian never booted, so I decided to try Noobs. I formatted the SD-card to Fat32 in KDE, noprobleo, copyed the Noobs files to the SD card, noproblemo, booted the Pi noproblemo.

So now the Pi is up and running.

Deploying Ruby on Rails

So I succeded in deploying my Ruby on Rails App to Heroku. That part was easy to understand. But what then?

One.com settings

The answer is: DNS administration.

Let a subdomain point to the app URL on Heroku via CNAME.

I guess that's the missing link. BTW any sky solution would work in a similar way.
