CentOS 5 :: Crash When Closing A Window?

Jul 3, 2009

I am using CentOS5.2 and gnome 2.16, sometimes (not very often) when I open something and close it by clicking the CROSS on the top-right corner. The application crash and I lose all control (no keyboard anymore), I have to reboot the system by reset the machine. What's going on?

Yesterday, when I logon as root and run service setup, after I uncheck a sevice in the list and then start it, I click the CROSS on the top-right corner of the window, it popup a window (in the background) to ask me to save it or not, but then I total lose the control, no mouse, no keyboard. I try to reset the machine many times, but everytime when I repeat the same operation, it crash again. Seems that if I don't close it, everything would be fine!!!!

General :: Disallow Closing Last Emacs Window Via Window-Manager Close Button

Jul 8, 2011

I like to start Emacs as part of a login script and leave it running for the duration of my login session (which is typically weeks).

I have scripts to call emacs-client which will allow me to use a file-manager or Windows Explorer to locate files and right-click to edit them in Emacs.

I often end up with a lot of emacs windows (frames) open and I like to just be able to close them by clicking on the MS-Windows or KDE X button at the top-right.

The trouble is, if the window is the last one, this will shut down emacs which will lose all kinds of interesting history information.

As a work-around I use C-x 5 0 which won't let me close the last frame but this is often not as convenient as using the mouse

Does anyone know how to configure Emacs so that it can intercept the Window-Close button of the last frame to either request confirmation or simply disallow it?

On MS-Windows, disallowing closing of the last window may cause logoff to hang if emacs is still running but I'm not too worried about that.

General :: Skype Auto Closing - Froze / Crash?

May 26, 2011

Any time i try to open skype it closes out fully in 5 seconds (not even in the processes anymore). I don't know why or how OR how to make it stop being so mean to me! i'm running ubuntu 10.4 32bit . I tried to boot it in safe mode and umm.. it froze? or crashed? well it was on the black screen with the blinking dot for like 20 mins before i gave up on it (Hiting enter or esc or anything didn't work). There was a key symbol on my panel before skype acted up(It closed and disabled something.. i've never seen it before). Adobe also crashed, and linux did a small update (nothing with skype).

Ubuntu :: Closing A Nautilus Window Instance ?

Apr 18, 2010

Is there a way to identify and close a given instance of an open nautilus window from a command line?

Or can one identify via a command line that a given instance is open?

I'd like to tag one when it is open with a specific title and then if that is already open not open it again all from the command line.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Window Effects - Minimizing - Closing

Dec 10, 2010

I've been running Ubuntu on my laptop for a couple months now and I've been using compiz settings manager. For some reason I can't seem to get the window effects for minimizing, closing, etc. to work. I have followed a few tutorials and nothing seems to make any difference. As far as I can tell, that is the only thing in compiz that is not working. I am running Ubuntu 10.10

Debian :: How To Avoid Closing Console - Bash Script - Window

Jul 30, 2011

I have a bash script and I'm dropping a file on script launcher shortcut. Everything seems fine, only that after executing the script console window closes, so I can't see if some messages were produced during execution.

As I just recently switched from Windows, this kind of problem is solved there by adding 'pause' command in batch script, on which user has to press key and script will then continue (finish) or by launching through 'cmd /k' which makes console window persistent.

Googling I found about 'sleep' command and more appropriate for me 'read' command, so I did this:

Unfortunately, I can't see any effect of 'read' command as console windows again terminates after execution. Execution is successful BTW. So what's the catch?

OpenSUSE :: KDE Tends To Freeze Momentarily After Closing A Window - Pressing A Button

Sep 29, 2010

KDE tends to freeze momentarily after performing some tasks, like closing a window, pressing a button that should result in an option pane being popped, or simply trying to drag a window around the desktop. It doesn't happen every single time, but it's very persistently. I first noticed that the mouse would freeze sometimes when I do something like close a window and it takes 3~4 seconds for me to get control back, and for the task that I requested (close a window for instance) to be carried out.

During this time, I notice that all of KDE freezes up because my binary clock widget freezes as well. Is this a known problem with KDE? Can somebody give me some advice as to what might be causing this behaviour? I recall having similar problems back when I first tried 11.0, but back then it was so bad that I ended up going with Gnome. Now KDE has me hooked again, except for this one niggling issue. If I can get this resolved, then I think I will finally have an absolutely stable linux desktop.

General :: Closing The Section Headings Window On The Left Of The Xpdf Screen?

May 24, 2011

When I open a pdf file (e.g., beamer file) using xpdf, there's an annoying window on the left displaying section headings. Presumably it's possible to close it, ideally toggle it closed and open with a key binding, but I can't find out how to do this.

Ubuntu :: Closing 3 Window Bars - Dont Have The Minimize Maximize Or Close Buttons

May 20, 2010

So I have these three bars that I suppose are some kind of left over fragment of windows I had up the last time I rebooted. Anyhow, whenever I boot now, these three bars show on my desktop, and I cant get rid of them, they dont have the minimize, maximize or close buttons. Yet when I click the, "show desktop" buttom, they then minimize. HOwever, they don't show up on my window list. I've tried restarting my xsession and that didnt work, I've restarted nautilus that didn't work, I cant right click on them, I already tried xkill and force quite and that doesnt work. They're just always there.

Ubuntu :: Programs Crash Whenever Close The Last Window?

Sep 21, 2010

I've recently installed ubuntu, and right away from a fresh install programs would crash whenever I closed the last window. It doesn't give me any error messages, so I don't know what the problem is , just poof the programs is gone and I have to launch it again. This happens in almost every program, I've used except rtythmbox. it's not a big deal for the small programs that load instantly, but for firefox or openoffice it's big pain in the neck.

my hardware:
Motherboard: INTEL LGA775 DDR-3 PCI-e X16 SATA MBOARD
Intel Core 2 Quad Processors: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 2.5Ghz 4MB
Hard Drive: 1TB 1000GB 7200Rpm SATA HARD DRIVE

CentOS 5 :: Glxgears Crash After Upgrade From 5.2 To 5.4

Oct 25, 2009

My exercise below is to check if glxgears crashes xorg of CentOS5.4 with Intel GM965 Chipset. Apparently I don't have luck in this case. Since the exercise failed, it means I will still stick to CentOS 5.2 (residing on a different partition) for a while, even though CentOS5.2 crashes glxgears too. After "yum upgrade" (done after moving all repos in /etc/yum.repos.d to elsewhere except CentOS-Base.repo and CentOS-Media.repo), I ran glxgears that consistently crashes CentOS5.2 xorg, an issue that upset me quite a bit.

During upgrade, I saw a line "grubby fatal error : unable to find a suitable template". I guess the my grub.conf is too confusing for the installer, but that is not big deal, I just used the kernel number 2.6.18-164 where it is applicable. Even this this new update, glxgears still crash the xorg (the screen froze and then a new login screen reappears). With this I am sure the 3D application might still crash the xorg from time to time. (I can still revert to CentOS5.2 with a tar file, but I am still thinking to just upgrade to Centos5.3 but I don't know how.)

CentOS 5 :: Backup, Restore And Crash (in That Order, Unfortunately)?

Sep 30, 2009

this message is a bit long but I've been pulling my hair for 2 days now. I am installing Centos 5.3 on a Dell Powerege R610, x86_64 flavour. That part goes well. next is testing backup & restore. I've tried MondoArchive, that I used on other OS, but it fails to remount the LVM correctly, and disk formatting fails. Now, I am trying another way: boot with centos 5.3 i386 live cd, take the disks online, cpio to a usb file everything but: /tmp /proc /boot /dev /etc/fstab /etc/mtab

then, reinstall a fresh centos to erase the disk (crash simulation) and to simulate the initial restore I would do after a crash. From there, I go again with the livecd, mount r/w the logical volume, cpio -i all my files, and reboot. It sort of goes well. system reboots correctly - it loads all my drivers (even asterisk & dahdi and the T1/E1 card light goes green...), starts KDE, but from there I get an infamous error message preventing me to log in "Your session only lasted less than 10 seconds" - looking in the details, i get this message "could not exe /etc/X11/xinit/XSession default' - but I dont think X11 has so much to do with it...

When I go to a text console (ctrl alt f1), and try to log, no luck either - and no time to see why. I've modified initrd to level 1 - there I get the single user prompt, that's ok - but init 3 brings me to a screen where I cant log (either with root or a user) - there is a clear difference between an incorrect password and a failed login - the later, as soon as I enter the password, I return to a login prompt Now my questions. 1/ how can I make a "system backup" of Centos 5.3 x64 -ie after a crash, I want an image tha t I will restore and bring back OS + Applications (data can be backed up separately) 2/ what is wrong with my restore thru livecd ? why cant I log into the system ?

CentOS 5 :: Complete X Crash Running Seamonkey 2.0?

I'd rather not switch back to SM 1.1.18 as 2.0 is so much better. I've had this same crash on at least one other page too (not on centos.org this time).
