WSUS Console Error

I have installed a bunch of updates on the WSUS Server and after that I coudln’t login to the console anymore.

So I did some research on the net and some users had to uninstal KB3148812 and others KB3159706.

Instead of uninstalling following steps helped me:

  1. Elevated Command Prompt "C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools\wsusutil.exe" postinstall /servicing
  2. Enable HTTP Activation under .NET Framework 4.5 Features in the Server Manager Add Roles and Features Wizard
  3. Restart the WSUS service

Install OwnCloud on Debian

I already made once a tutorial how to install OwnCloud on Debian. But since then you can find it in the repository of aptitude and is therefore much easier to install.

  1. apt-get update
  2. apt-get install owncloud
  3. apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client
  4. Create DB and User
    mysql –u root –p
    CREATE DATABASE owncloud;
    CREATE USER owncloud@localhost IDENTIFIED BY ‘password’;
    GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON owncloud.* TO owncloud@localhost;
    flush privileges;
    quit
  5. Create Directories
    mkdir /var/owncloud
    chown www-data:www-data /var/owncloud
    chmod 750 /var/owncloud
  6. Run owncloud
    http://yourip/owncloud/
  7. Username: owncloud
    Password: Password you have picked for the DB.
    DB Name: owncloud
    Hostname: localhost
  8. Activate HTTPS
    a2enmod ssl
    a2ensite default-ssl
    service apache2 restart

After that you just need to install the OwnCloud clients on your devices and then you are ready to go.

Skype for BUsiness Error after March updates (kb3114831)

I had trouble in Outlook to plan a Skype for Business call after the March updates. When I tried to send the invintation I got an error message that I should make sure that I’m logged into Skype for Business.

I went through all the updates and found out that: KB3114831 is causing the problem. After uninstalling it, it worked like a charm. Hopefully this is going to help somebody.

debian problem with locale

locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory
locale: Cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: No such file or directory
I tried setting the locales with:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales

and on raspberry pi with:
sudo raspi-config

But it still didn’t work. You actually need to change the ssh client settings from the computuer where you are connecting from.

Change in:
etc/ssh/ssh_config

Comment:
#SendEnv LANG LC_*

Delay when making a right click on the desktop

I had a up to 3 second delay each time I right clicked on the desktop or on a folder and this is actually caused by the context menu of the Intel Graphic Driver.

Deleting the Intel Graphic Driver from the context menu fixed it for me:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\igfxDTCM

automatically download subtitles and add it to vlc

Because English is not my mother tongue and I can’t always follow dialogues in movies, I wished a couple of times that there would be a easy way to add subtitles. You can add subtitles with VLC without extension but then you need to have the file already or you need to search in the internet for it.
Luckily you can extend vlc with a great subtitle plugin which automatically searches the internet and finds a suitable subtitle. This saves you some time and steps.

  1. Download the extension: https://github.com/exebetche/vlsub
  2. Copy the files into the following directory:
    Windows: C:/Program Files/VideoLAN/VLC/lua/extensions/
    Mac OS X: /Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/share/lua/extensions/
    Linux: ~/.local/share/vlc/lua/extensions/
  3. Restart VLC Player
  4. Now you should find a new entry for VLSub under extensions.
