Give option of choosing a language to users SharePoint Online

By default sharepoint follows below mentioned paths to decide in which language site should be shown

  1. If the User Profile service application is started on the SharePoint Server 2013 farm, the language preferences stored in the user profile are used.
  2. If no language preference is defined in the user profile, or if the server uses SharePoint Foundation 2013, the language preferences stored in the user’s language settings for the site collection are used.
  3. If no language preference is defined in the user’s site collection language settings, the language preferences stored in the user’s web browser are used.
  4. If no language preference is defined in the user’s web browser, the default site language is used.

What I want to know, is there any way to force sharepoint to switch between languages, as per users wish. e.g. we provide dropdown/options from where user selects the language and sharepoint system content (Site settings, Ribbon etc.) is shown in that language.
So instead of referring to user profile/Browser settings, can we overwrite this with dropdown selection?

‘Install Ubuntu’ not showing allocated space or ‘delete Windows and install Ubuntu’ option

I’m trying to replace Windows 10 with Ubuntu 19.04. I have a new HP Pavilion x360 laptop with 4GB ram. I’ve been looking at tutorials on how to download Ubuntu yet I’m still having trouble installing.

I don’t have the ‘delete Windows and install Ubuntu’ option. It just takes me to language options, WiFi setup, then installation type where I have to manually input the partitions.

In the ‘device for boot loader installation’ it’s only giving me 15.7 gb (probably from my USB), instead of the unallocated space I made on Windows. Ubuntu can’t seem to find the allocated space, and I’ve scrolled countless of forums and tried every command recommended to me.

Does anyone have a solution or an alternative?

(Windows is not on hibernation/sleep mode. SAMA operations is not an option on Windows 10 anymore. I’ve already fixed everything on the BIOS. Can I just download Ubuntu without dual booting or USB…)

Safest option for resizing /home and merging newly freed space with existing free space to form shared partition

I have Ubuntu 18.04.2 installed in the dual-boot mode along with Windows 10, and here is my current partition setup.

enter image description here

What I’d like to do is install Ubuntu 18.04.4 afresh while resizing my /home partition to, say, 4 GB (is this a reasonable size? I do not plan on storing any large files such as audio/video ones) and then combining the freed space with the 2.36 GB currently unallocated to create a shared NTFS partition.

What is my best (safest) course of action? Should I carry out the partition resizing and partition creation steps before I install Ubuntu 18.04.4? I believe I can do this by booting using a gparted live USB. Then, I could just install 18.0.4 on the existing / partition while formatting it and the newly resized /home. Is this the right way to do it?

Or will I get a chance to make these changes at the time of the installation of the OS? I have not clicked beyond this screen during the installation process and do not whether the above will be an option.

What is the best option to test the data set of images using weka?

I have two hundred and fifty images, and extracted the features from them and put them in an Excel file, how to use the weka program so that the first 200 images for training and the remaining fifty images for testing.

Do I put the data for two hundred images in a separate file and the data for fifty images in another file? Or do I put the data for two hundred and fifty images in the same file?. Please help me .

LOCK SER w Hide Window, Hide Taskbar Icon +Option to PW Lock/Hide Window/Hide Icon On ALL GSA prgms?

Hi, Sven. :)
I recently began locking SER on my local machine when I’m away. Someone mentioned this feature recently and it just seems like a good idea. 8-)
(please see GSA SECURITY question by zexsara in pakistan on August 17 )
I was wondering if it wouldn’t be too much trouble to implement any of these ideas:
-[ ] OPTION to also Hide SER Main Window Checkbox on Lock Enter  PW Window in SER
-[ ] OPTION to also Hide SER Taskbar Icon  Checkbox on Lock Enter  PW Window in SER
Also wondering about these:
-[ ] OPTION to also  Lock ALL GSA SEO Programs thru SER on Lock Enter  PW Window
That could PW lock (with above two features also optional if checked)  other GSA SEO products opened/running until unlocked thru SER.
Do you think this might be useful?

Can you effectively apply the Sorcerer’s Extended Spell Metamagic option to the Thaumaturgy spell?

The thaumaturgy spell states

You manifest a minor wonder, a sign of supernatural power, within range. You create one of the following magical effects within range:

  • Your voice booms up to three times as loud as normal for 1 minute.
  • You cause flames to flicker, brighten, dim, or change color for 1 minute.
  • You cause harmless tremors in the ground for 1 minute.
  • You create an instantaneous sound that originates from a point of your choice within range, such as a rumble of thunder, the cry of a raven, or ominous whispers.
  • You instantaneously cause an unlocked door or window to fly open or slam shut.
  • You alter the appearance of your eyes for 1 minute.

If you cast this spell multiple times, you can have up to three of its 1-minute effects active at a time, and you can dismiss such an effect as an action.

The Sorcerer’s Extended Spell Metamagic feature states:

When you cast a spell that has a duration of 1 minute or longer, you can spend 1 sorcery point to double its duration, to a maximum duration of 24 hours.

Even though the duration of thaumaturgy is 1 minute, the descriptions describes the effects as only lasting for 1 minute instead of “for the spell’s duration”. Can you use the Extended Spell option on the thaumaturgy spell to meaningful effect?

There are other situations with similar interactions such as using the Distant Spell Metamagic Option on the counterspell spell, as discussed in the question: “Can you effectively apply the Distant Spell metamagic option to a Counterspell?” Where the reaction needing to be within 60 feet of you isn’t overridden by the spell.
