Debian Configuration :: How To Change Gnome / Mate Backends

Jan 3, 2016

I got some trouble with suspending/hibernation using gnome or mate. None of them can suspend the T450 correcly neither to disk nor to ram. If I run pm-utils from a terminal pm-sleep and pm-hibernate work fine both. So I guess all I need is to change the commands which are run by clicking on the suspend or hibernate button, but how to change what is behind the GUI.

Debian Multimedia :: Mate Display Properties Crash After Upgrade Mate-desktop1.10

Aug 13, 2015

Yesterday I have upgraded from repo and there was an update regarding mate-desktop and mate-desktop-common to version 1.10.1 (while the rest of the packages are 1.8.x). Well I upgraded and now I cannot start mate-display-properies to configure my monitor, it crashes all the time.

This is the error found with gdb:

Debian :: Uninstall Gnome And Keep Mate And System Clean

Mar 30, 2016

I've been testing Mate since couple of weeks on my Jessie and now I'm convinced that is the perfect DE for me. So I would like to uninstall Gnome 3 without disturbing Mate and my system as well because both DE share many dependencies. If this is very risky I would like at least get rid of all gnome packages which are not shared with Mate.

Debian Multimedia :: Sound Schemes For GNOME / MATE?

Jul 26, 2015

Are there any sound schemes for GNOME and MATE? Like different system sounds and a logon-logoff sound and a system sound for when I empty the trash bin? Like the way Ubuntu does, just with different sounds. I'm not that crazy about Ubuntu's system sounds.

I know I don't need it, I think it would just make a nice addition to my laptop and later my desktop.

Debian Multimedia :: Jessie 8.3 - How To Remove GNOME And Install MATE

Mar 14, 2016

I have Jessie 8.3, netinstall and GNOME base. I want to switch to MATE and my question is hot to do it correctly.

I think it is impossible to do it by installing firstly MATE and the GNOME - both desktops should be crashed.

How to remove completely GNOME to be without any desktop environment? I can go to thext mode and run commands to delete the desktop but there is something more that I should do?

Debian Configuration :: Reboot Both The Server And The Client Machines Every Time Change The SAMBA Configuration?

Apr 5, 2010

I am *finally* getting around to rebuilding my file-sharing computer. I'll be sharing files with both Linux and Windoze machines. It's a home network, so there's nothing fancy needed. I know I have to tweak my smb.conf file until I'm satisfied with the features and security. I'm using SWAT and I'm starting with a bare-bones conf file. It's not secure but I can see the server and selected files/directories from my other Linux box.

My really dumb question is, do I have to reboot both the server and the client machines every time I change the SAMBA configuration? I thought I just had to stop and restart the SAMBA service in the SWAT software - but then the server disappears from my client. It looks like I need to reboot both machines for the client to see the server.

Ubuntu :: Change The Default GNOME Configuration For New Users?

Aug 22, 2010

I'm looking to customize the environment for new users by changing the items in the GNOME menu, change the panel layout, add some shortcuts, and do a few other things. I looked in /etc/skel and there doesn't seem to be anything GNOME related in there; I also tried to put .gconf, .gconfd and .gnome2 from my home directory into /etc/skel and that didn't do what I wanted.

Debian Multimedia :: Installing MATE Offline?

Apr 22, 2015

I have Debien 7.8 Wheezy installed on my laptop, along with the GNOME desktop. As I absolutely hate the new GNOME layout I want to install MATE so I can get the classic GNOME 2 desktop back. But I have no internet connection here at home (I only have my phone for internet and I can't tether it).

So I'm wondering if it's possible for me to download all the packages and install MATE offline? I don't even know what all the packages are that I need.I can download the packages with my phone with no issue.

I installed Debian on my laptop with the Debian DVDs in case you were wondering. when I downloaded the Debian DVD ISOs, I only saw three ISO files, but the documentation said that it's a 10 DVD set. What happened to the other 7 DVD ISOs?

Debian Multimedia :: MATE Applets Not Staying Put

Sep 15, 2015

I recently installed 8.1, the Gnome Classic DE isn't anything near worth using now. What happened to The Gnome Classic that I know and love? I don't mind MATE too much, if only the applets I put in the panel would stay put between logins instead of manifesting wherever The OS decides IT wants them instead of where I placed and locked them.

I'm looking for a way to get back the Gnome Classic I know and love from Wheezy (first choice), or get the applets in MATE to stay where I put them (second choice).

Debian Multimedia :: Copy Set Of Photos Out Of Digikam (on Mate)

Nov 15, 2015

This is probably a bit of an unusual combination, but I'm using Digikam on Maté. Maybe the problem I'm about to describe just isn't an issue on KDE.

I have my photos in digikam, separated out into various folders. I use the timeline view or the tag view to show just a subset of photos, where the photos are scattered across different folders. Then I want to take those photos and make copies of them onto somewhere else outside of digikam's control, like a USB stick or an external drive or even just another folder. I do not want to change the photos which are in digikam, and I don't want to lose the folder information, tags etc.

I select the photos I want, and choose "Edit"->"Copy". But in my file manager Caja there is no "Paste" command available. I guess that Digikam has copied them into a KDE clipboard and Caja can't find them.

I can drag them into another folder of digikam, and that offers me a pop menu - do I want to move or copy? I can also cancel this if I realise it's not what I want to do.

I can also drag them to Caja, but then I have to be really careful. If I just let go (expecting the move/copy prompt), then it just goes right ahead and moves the pictures out of digikam, which is absolutely awful. The photos are gone from digikam, I lose what folders they were in, I lose what tags they had, and there's no confirmation. I have to spend ages moving the photos back where they came from, trying really hard not to lose any, and even then the tags are gone. I guess the file timestamps are destroyed too but I guess that's not so important. It's just a difficult task depending on how many photos there were and how many different folders, and how jumbled the filenames were.

Ok, so now I know that I have to hold the Ctrl key down when I drag, but still the mouse can accidentally let go before I press the key (I can only press the Ctrl after I start dragging, otherwise it deselects the photo I drag with).

The whole thing just seems fragile and error-prone, and there must be a way to make this less painful.

Maybe I can use something other than caja which handles the drop bit of the drag-and-drop better?

Maybe I can configure digikam to temporarily "lock" the photo database to prevent any accidental changes to the files?

Maybe I can configure digikam to confirm before moving files like this, so I can say "cancel"? (I already have "confirm when moving to wastebin" and "confirm when permanently deleting")

Maybe there's another mechanism for copy/paste from digikam to the file system which is more reliable? Some kind of export with a plain copy?

I'm guessing one popular response might be "don't use digikam with Maté", but I like both so that's tricky to resolve.

Failing any of those, is there any separate tool to search through a tree of photos, select those from a given timerange, and copy them to somewhere else? Either keeping the original folder structure or flattening it?

Debian :: Iceweasel Content Encoding Errors (Mate 8.3 Live)

Jan 31, 2016

Background :
Debian Mate Live 8.2 + Iceweasel 38.6 = no problem
Debian Mate Live 8.3 + Iceweasel 38.6 = problems as explained below

Details :
I have used Debian Live versions for a while now without any major problem. After switching from Mate Live 8.2 to Mate Live 8.3, I am almost unable to use Iceweasel due to the following problems :

- much slower browsing overall with regular timeouts (the page's layout or some ads often fail to load)
- random content encoding errors (the grey page similar to SSL related errors)
- random non-latin characters or strange strings (like ""q5"&2>html34") appearing along a page's content

Reloading the same page may (or not) fix the issue : it is random, sometimes it displays correctly (but still very slow) other times it gets worse.

Even when many encoding errors are displayed, if I check the page's source code then it appears to be clean.

I have not changed my usual settings and both the OS and Iceweasel are in vanilla state without any 3rd party add-on or package installed.

I doubt it is hardware related since switching back to 8.2 immediatly solves the issue. The 8.3 support seems ok too because I verified the md5 of all files with success.

Debian Multimedia :: Lightdm And MATE 1.8 - Mouse Flickering / Disappearing

Aug 16, 2014

I installed debian 7 with lightdm and MATE 1.8 (from backports) on a new PC.

Since the first day the mose keeps disappearing. For example when I click on something, the mouse disappears and only comes back when I move it. Sometimes it already disappears when hovering over a button (especially annoying when it happens while you try to resize a window).

That problem did not happen for example in LXDE, which I installed just to test that.

I did install MATE 1.8 on several laptops/PCs so far, never hat that problem. Maybe it's because of quite recent hardware?

Debian Multimedia :: Switch From Mate-volume-control To Pulse Audio Mixer?

I'm using Mate on Jessie. The problem is that mate-volume-control kinda sucks as an audio control. It doesn't have nearly enough options for a proper volume control program.

Debian Configuration :: Cannot Change Locale

Jul 12, 2015

I have setup a VPS @ Strato with Linux Wheezy.Since I'am in the Netherlands I got a Dutch language package installed.I like to setup into englisch all the way.Via dpkg-reconfigure locales I have installed en_GB.UTF-8 UTF8 language packages and deïnstaled nl_NL.utf8

Generating locales (this might take a while)...
en_GB.UTF-8... done
Generation complete.

But a lot of the commands are still in Dutch like: h2458377:~# uitgelogd.And quite often I got:
-su: warning: setlocale: LC_ALL: cannot change locale (nl_NL.utf8)

How do I get ripped off this error?Just working with/on the command line

Debian Configuration :: Change Gfx Card

Sep 20, 2015

I have debian latest stable and have been using a geforce gfx card which has now failed.I have removed the gfx card and activated the on board gfx in bios and I can boot to the grub screen.The onboard gfx is on my i5 4600.After I select debian from grub I end up with a blank black screen and a small cursor in top left hand corner but I cannot type anything with this cursor. From this screen I can only ctrl+alt+del for reboot or physically turn off the pc.I think this is a driver issue but wouldnt debian just use a default gfx driver automatically in this situation so I would at least get to a console or desktop? If this is the case what is the process to enable the required driver? via rescue disk?Mobo is gigabyte GA z87 hd3 and im wondering if this might be something to do with uefi or similar?

Debian Configuration :: Xen - Qemu - Fails To Get Into Gnome

Jan 15, 2010

I've just installed lenny from dvd, and am just settling in. I'm curious about virtual machines. so I've installed xen. With xen comes qemu by default. Now the setup I've recently become familiar with is Suse-11 which is quite slick.In Suse, Yast provides a distribution prepared virtual management section for xen, including an installer. Debian's setup is similar but not a clone. I want to try out the installer. Aside from the differences, debian has a screaming deficit. On booting dom0 in Lenny, if fails to get into gnome, badly. I can tell what's probably wrong, but I need to fix it. Now I'm also a gentoo fan and very practised at posting queries, so here goes.

Debian's config for X is somewhat unhelpful. The xorg.conf just states Configured device and configured monitor for its components. If it expanded on just what the settings were it would help. What I have is a frambuffer driver not loadinf or being implemented.

Debian Configuration :: No Network Access In Gnome

Apr 5, 2011

I've installed Debian on a Sun Ultra 450 Enterprise system using the net install version, so I know that my network is working correctly. However, now that Debian is installed and I bring up Gnome, I have no network access. I've set eth0 to DHCP, and have pointed it to my DNS server, but it never gets any information from the DNS server.

I've looked through /etc/network/interfaces, which looks like this:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface allow-hotplug eth0
#NetworkManager#iface eth0 inet dhcp
/etc/resolv.conf contains:
which is correct.

I've run
/etc/init.d/networking stop
/etc/init.d/networking start

So far, nothing works. Why would the Debian network install disk work, but not be smart enough to set my network correctly from the start once I'm actually running Linux? Also, how do I get the network running in Gnome?
