Debian Configuration :: Wheezy Xfce 4.8 VERY SLOW First Thunar Startup

May 16, 2011

I upgraded my main PC's Xfce 4.6 to Xfce 4.8 this morning.Now, every time I start Thunar for the first time after a new boot, it takes about 30 seconds to appear, and then about 10 seconds later, a second instance of it appears.After that, Thunar appears instantly every time I start it during that same session. But if I shut-down or restart my PC, Thunar again takes about 30 seconds to start up, and a second instance of it appears about 10 seconds later.

Google searches seem to indicate that people running other distros are also experiencing this problem. On advice in a different forum, I deleted the ~/.config/Thunar folder and restarted my PC, but that didn't help -- it created a new Thunar folder, but the long delay and the double-Thunars are still there every time I run Thunar for the first time in a session.

Debian Multimedia :: Opening Windows Shares In XFCE (Thunar)

May 24, 2015

Another thing that's always worked before but now I'm struggling with in Jessie, if I open a smb:// url it just says "Not supported", is it possible to add support in Thunar? Some googling says to install gvfs but it is already installed, gvfs-open just says "command not found" though.

Strange thing is that I have tons of those little problems that seem to be regression since Wheezy but somehow I'm the only one hit heh. I actually think all the problems are caused by choosing "XFCE" on the installer because I can reproduce them 100% on any PC as long as I install XFCE, it's better to install entirely default (Gnome) and add xfce afterwards is my theory but I don't feel like reinstalling the whole system again.

With Jessie, I use Menulibre. It's not in the Wheezy repos that I see, However. I read of Alacarte, but it seems to have a list a mile long of other stuff that "needs" to be installed with it.

Debian Multimedia :: Package Conflict With KDE And Xfce (wheezy)

Jul 27, 2011

I have Xfce installed on wheezy, and I was planning on installing some KDE components for kicks. When I tried to install kdebase-workspace I got this error from aptitude The following NEW packages will be installed:

[Code]...

The following packages are RECOMMENDED but will NOT be installed: kinfocenter plasma-scriptengines policykit-1-gnome polkit-kde-1 upower 0 packages upgraded, 30 newly installed, 0 to remove and 49 not upgraded.
Need to get 78.5 MB of archives. After unpacking 137 MB will be used. The following packages have unmet dependencies: xfce4-notifyd: Conflicts: notification-daemon but it is not going to be installed.

If it's not going to be installed, then where is the conflict? I've seen "Depends: X but it is not going to be installed", which makes sense. The only solutions are to remove xfce4-notifyd or to keep most of the KDE stuff uninstalled. apt-get also wants to remove xfce4-notifyd. Edit: Ok, it looks like both plasma-widgets-workspace and xfce4-notifyd provide notification-daemon, but I still don't understand why the aptitude error doesn't tell me that xfce4-notifyd conflicts with plasma-widgets-workspace instead of notification-daemon.

Ubuntu :: Xfce/Thunar Will Not Mount CDs?

Jul 17, 2010

I have Volume Management enabled in Thunar, and I have Removable Storage set to "Mount removable media when inserted". If I insert a DVD I get an icon on my desktop and in the side-pane of Thunar and a folder appears in /media. If I insert a CD I get... nothing. I can play an audio CD in gxine or mplayer or Decibel, but I can't browse the contents with Thunar. The same drive is used for both CDs and DVDs.

OpenSUSE :: XFCE Launch Error - Thunar ?

Sep 6, 2011

I have encountered a problem with an XFCE Launch Error. Upon first login, if I double click any Thunar related icon or try to launch Thunar from the menu, it will take 20-30 seconds to start. At first it was giving me the following Launch Error: "The folder could not be opened. Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken." After successive reboots, I no longer get the Launch Error, but it still takes 20-30 seconds to start Thunar.

This is a new install of OpenSUSE and I did updates. The first two updates I did were required by the update software itself. After that was complete I updated the rest of the recommended packages. I then installed gnome-control-center to get gnome-display-properties so I can adjust my login screen settings. Those are all the updates I have done.

I have poured over other threads about the aforementioned Launch Error, and it seems possible that it is related to message bus security policy or gtk2 settings somewhere.

Is there a way to log XFCE errors or message bus errors to a file for troubleshooting? I would like to find out why and where this is happening.

Debian Configuration :: Kernel 2.6.38 In Wheezy?

Apr 11, 2011

This is Wheezy x86_64. I tried two different ways to install kernel 2.6.38 on my machine and both have failed. First thing I did was to follow this guide [URL]... el-26.html) and try to compile the latest stable from kernel.org. I don't know why, but it turns into kernel panic when I try to run it. Second thing I did was to install the liquorix 2.6.38, and that also fails, seeming to boot but hanging a second short from the login. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Is there a special way to install kernels in Debian? This is the first time I tried compiling a kernel, so it's quite likely that the problem is sitting 6 inches from the computer screen. Also, how would I remove those kernels since they're obviously not working? I know I could remove them from the grub menu but I'm not sure how to completely delete them.

Debian :: Startup And Rc's - Run Different Desktops - Gnome - Xfce

Jul 16, 2011

After an error occurred i can log in using the recovery console and startx manually.

If i understood correctly recovery mode uses /etc/rcS.d which starts the computer with minimal services and the normal startup is /etc/rc2.d. What can rc3, rc4 and rc5 be used for? Can anyone run different desktops (gnome, xfce, etc) using these runlevels (i am considering that the base system install is the same for all desktops)? Where i can find information about the services that are listed in the rc folders, since some (hibernate, bluetooth, apache2) are not useful to me at the moment.

I am also interested to find out what makes the computer start at it's default runlevel. Is there a way to start rc2 (or rc3, etc) from the recovery mode? When i used to start my computer, it would load into grub, and then it used to get me to the login screen. This is something i would like to avoid (the login screen), and start at the command prompt. My startups are minimal since the computer is always on. I was thinking of 'copying' rcS into rc2 for a normal console start and then start rc3 or rc4 or rc5 to load a desktop.

I am using Squeeze, Gnome, default installation.

Debian Configuration :: Migration To Bind 9.10 In Wheezy 7.1

Nov 13, 2015

I want to migrate to bind 9.10 in debian wheezy. I don't want to take the source code from debian Sid since its an experimental version. So I have taken source code from official bind forum and compiled in debian wheezy. The compilation is successful but I am having problem in running the binary in debian wheezy. It's not honoring the binary even though I run it. I am not getting error messages on console but still it is not running.

I want to know whether its feasible to do this Or is it dependent on any other system libraries to make it run ?

Debian Multimedia :: XFCE Window Redrawing Very Slow (NVidia)

May 16, 2011

I'm trying to use squeeze + xfce + an nvidia gtx 460. With both the stable and sid nvidia driver, window redrawing in xfce is really slow. This isn't a problem in gnome. An example of this is having man windows open, filling up the screen, and then taking another window and moving it around the screen on top of the other windows - it slides around the screen slowly like those old dvd player screensavers, leaving a long trail in its wake. I'd like to know if anyone has any ideas on how to remedy this. Turning on compositing fixes the problem, but that is not an option for me as xfce's compositing creates massive screen tearing while using vdpau. I should also add that this wasn't an issue when I was using Gentoo and xfce.

Debian Configuration :: High CPU Temp Wheezy X200

May 10, 2015

I am noticing some rather high CPU temps while using Debian 7.8 KDE on a Lenovo X200 laptop.

Even when its not doing anything its getting as high as 70C sometimes. I opened it up and went in with a can of compressed air, it went down a little to 36C now its back to 70c the day after.

Then I realised the fan was hardly spinning is there any way I can control how much (or little) the fan spins at certain temps?

My guesses are it could be done with a bash / shell script in the kernal loaded at booting up. But am unsure.

Here is my dmesg [URL] ....

And lsmod [URL] ....

Debian Configuration :: Wheezy - Can't Change Software Sources?

Apr 13, 2011

I updated to Wheezy from Squeeze and whilst I can make changes to sources.list manually, I can't do some updates in Software Sources.For instance, the 3 check boxes under "Download from internet" are all un-ticked and I can't change them if I wanted to - even though the sources.list is set up with "main contrib non-free"I cannot amend the download server either - it works out what the best server is but wont update if I tell it to.

Debian Configuration :: Wheezy - Detect Printer On One WiFi Network But Not Other

Sep 21, 2015

I use a 'wifi hotspot' provided by my mobile (android) phone for internet/email and to connect to my wifi capable HP p1102w printer. Installation and use of the printer worked perfectly until I bought a new phone, again android with 'wifi hotspot' capability. The wifi connection on my new phone works fine for internet and email but it totally fails to detect my printer.

I have tried to detect and connect to the printer using system-config-printer and using the HP utility hp-setup. Both fail to detect the printer on the 'new' wifi network.

The old network connection which detects the printer as expected gives the following output:

Code: Select allpat@debian:~$ ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 6c:3b:e5:91:ec:0c 
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

The new (problematic) network connection which fails to detect the printer gives the following output:

Debian Configuration :: Wheezy - After Update Systemd Turn Off Laptop Screen On Boot

Sep 25, 2015

I decided to update all the software on my computer. Fortunately, it upgraded kernel version 3.14 to 3.16. I was happy to learn that suspend now worked on my laptop by calling pm-suspend, but it did not worked by closing the lid. So I search and found on debian's website that installing systemd and adding some config lines in /etc/systemd/logind.conf would sove the issue. So I followed the procedure and did like instructed, to end up with a computer that boots on black screen.

The last verbrose line I see on boot up is "kvm disabled by bios" and then it shutdown down the screen. The computer works, as I can login and shutdown by doing those operation blindly.

I tried removing systemd but it still does not work. If I use the old kernel 3.14 I can boot without any problem, but if I use kernel 3.16, I boot to a black screen. I remember successfully booting in 3.16 before installing systemd.
