Displaying your attachments as icons in the MAC mail app

If you don’t like the embedded attachment in the Mail app you can run the following command in terminal to display attachments as a attachment.

Open Finder > Applications > Utilities > Terminal

Run the following command in terminal:

# defaults write com.apple.mail DisableInlineAttachmentViewing -bool yes

Now instead of the attachments displaying their contents you will get an attachment icon.

If you decide you want to go back to viewing inline attachments:

Run the following command in terminal:

#defaults write com.apple.mail DisableInlineAttachmentViewing -bool false

Restart Mail and you’re back to normal.

Change IP address Linux

IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway

For Debian and Ubuntu

Static Address:
You will need to configure your IP address, subnet mask and default by editing the interfaces file. I use VI but you can choose any text editor.

Edit the interfaces file
edit /etc/network/interfaces
iface eth0:1 inet static
address 192.168.1.10
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.1.1

DHCP:

Edit the interfaces file with VI, make sure the static address is remarked out with the # sign.
edit /etc/network/interfaces
iface eth0:1 inet dhcp
# address 192.168.1.10
# netmask 255.255.255.0
# gateway 192.168.1.1

Restart the networking
/etc/init.d/networking restart

Take a network card down or interface down
ifdown eth0
ifup eth0
For Redhat, CentOS, and Fedora

Edit the network file to enable networking, the host name, and the default gateway

edit /etc/sysconfig/network

NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=server.domainName.com
GATEWAY=192.168.1.254

To add or edit the ip address and subnet mask edit the ifcfg-eth0 file. If you have more than one network card you will have an ifcfg-eth1 and so on.

#vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0,

To view the file
# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
DHCPCLASS=
HWADDR=00:23:24:52:B9:4C
IPADDR=192.168.1.10
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
ONBOOT=yes

If you are using DHCP set the BOOTPROTO=dhcp
DNS

Edit the resolv.conf file and set change the ip addresses

# vi /etc/resolv.conf
