We start with the available filters:
# convert -list filter
I haven't the first clue how to compare all of these so here is what I
am trying to accomplish in a script for repeated usage:
I have an image that is mostly text. I am trying to reduce the size of
the image to a fixed width (usually about 20%) while keeping the text as
readable as possible.
If I do this in GIMP, "cubic" will not produce the desired result.
Lanczos comes close. I assume that I can get even closer with "convert."
Slow is fine. Can some kind sole, more clever with graphics than I am,
suggest the -filter * that I am looking for?
Hi folks! :-)
I am trying to migrate from XMMS to Amarok, with the hope of improved
functionality and ease of dealing with my music collection.
So I have a very trivial problem: my music collection is now on a http
server. How do I get Amarok to make a collection database out of that,
short of downloading all that to a local disk? The very point of
having all the files on a http server is that I *don't* want to have
them on a local disk. So I want Amarok to create a database of the
files present on the server, from which I can later create playlists.
The music would stay on the server, and Amarok would read the files
over http and play them one by one.
I can do all this trivially with, say, mplayer --- I just need a text
file containing lines of http://www.myserver.com/music.mp3, and it
would play if I do a "mplayer -playlist myplaylist.txt". What I want
is to do the equivalent in Amarok, since I expect to have a better UI
regarding the order of files, shuffle&repeat stuff, etc.
Amarok doesn't appear to have a "load playlist from a txt file" kind of option.
N.B. I've been using Amarok for about 20 minutes total, so please tell
me that I have missed something really obvious. ;-)
I have a home server which runs F17 and for a long time now it just
doesn't reboot or shutdown cleanly. I've had the same issue since it was
running F16 and possibly F15. When the server shuts down, I get spurious
messages about some services failing or a dependency was not met for the
shutdown target, or sometimes a black screen with a line which just says
"Adding Swap target" (really, on a shutdown?). The output seems to vary
every time, sometimes wildy different but the end result is often the
same, having to hit the reset button. How do I about starting to
diagnose these problems with systemd? Given that the system is left in a
state where I can't do anything with it. The usual places such as
/var/log/messages doesn't turn up anything useful. Maybe because syslog
has already been stopped by then.
Hi, I'd like to install Windows 7 and fc17 on my laptop that has two
disks. I'd like to use one disk for Windows and one for Linux.
Should I just install Windows first, then Linux?
How do I replace the Windows boot loader with grub and still be able
to boot Windows?
I did a fresh install from F10 to F17 ,but I kept the old User directory
in the /home partition.
I did delete the old .kde /user/directory from the F10 install.
I can view most of the jpg or png pictures in /home/user directory, but
there is a number of jpg or png that I can't view, I get this error message:
"Failed Loading Meta information, failed"
This problem is all over a Google search ,but no solutions on correcting

Before I file a bug report, has anyone else seen this problem?
Installed Fedora 17 on a laptop and trying to get Chinese input working
for a user who doesn't know pinyin (therefore he needs to write the
characters using mouse/tablet).
I've tried WritRecogn and while it recognises characters, doesn't input
them anywhere (like into Firefox).
I've installed cellwriter but can't get past training mode after drawing
all the characters.
I've installed tomoe but can't find a way actually use it. There used to
be scim-tomoe package (presumably for scim support) but it no-longer
exists since F12.
So is it possible or am I trying in vain?

i had last year a vrand new computer with 4x2 TB server grade
disks as RAID10 and the first dies completly after 5 days
with never come back to read any sector
if a disk on a brand new computer has any single bad
sector the manufacturer has to replace it and yes most
disks are dying at the very first begin or they run

I rent a virtual personal server in another city that runs Fedora 16. I
want to upgrade it to 17. I did the yum-based preupgrade and such, but am
stuck. The instructions I read said to reboot and then choose upgrade at
the boot screen.
Since this is a network machine that has no boot screen, I need to tell
the box to upgrade in some other way.
Is there a way to to a yum upgrade over the network without seeing a boot
How can I manage such an issue?
