Logitech Lcore.exe Microsoft Visual c++ Runtime Library Exception

If you suddenly get this error, simply check the file settings.json in the hidden folder C:\Users\yourname]\AppData\Local\Logitech\Logitech Gaming Software\.

On my PC the file's size was 1GB !

I've simply deleted the file and the application went back to normal.

    Set DNS name server on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

    If you wish to change the dns nameserver information in ubuntu 12.04, you have to use the file /etc/network/interfaces instead of /etc/resolv.conf.

    Edit /etc/network/interfaces and append or replace the following line to set your dns server :
    dns-nameservers 1.2.3.4  5.6.7.8
    And optionally this one to specify the domain to be append when you request a non fully qualify name :
    dns-search foo.org bar.com
