German spellchecking in KDE Plasma

Monday, 30. June 2014

if you have an english installation but work in europe/germany/austria you eventually may want to  use  a german spellchecker

systemsettings – locale – spellchecker  only lists the english  language


you need to install the aspell and maybe (for libre office) hunspell packages:

sudo apt-get install hunspell-de-de aspell-de

Installing Nginx with PHP on (k)ubuntu

Sunday, 15. June 2014

sudo apt-get install php5-common php5-cli php5-fpm

sudo apt-get install nginx

sudo service nginx start

Test that it’s working (should see “Welcome to nginx!”)

sudo service nginx stop

In your nginx site configuration (/etc/nginx/sites-available/default) scroll down to where it says “location ~ .php {” and uncomment lines so it looks like this:

location ~ \.php$ {
  fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$
  fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
  fastcgi_index index.php;
  include fastcgi_params;


if you are using kubuntu 16.04 with php5 those lines should look like this:


location ~ \.php$ {  
        fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;   
        fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock; 
        include fastcgi_params;         
        include snippets/fastcgi-php.conf; 


and then:

sudo service php5-fpm restart
sudo service nginx restart

Your default web root is located at /usr/share/nginx/www (per the config file). (See root /usr/share/nginx/www;)

You could change it to root /home/user/webroot;


To enabel autoindex on nginx add:

autoindex on;

to your location section
