Debian :: Full But Empty Trashcan - Same Message Again

Jun 1, 2011

I'm on Debian 6.0
and 4 TB of HDD
Compaq Presario 9000

My problem is all of a sudden get a message on deleting files that the trashcan has reached its full capacity and needs to be emptied manually. After emptying the trashcan in Dolphin I still can't delete the files I want and get the same message again and again. I have shut down the computer before, but today that didn't seem to help at all. Also it seems a bit drastic to shut down the machine everytime this happens. Is there perhaps another 'manual' way of emptying the trashcan? I have found a post recommending to rm -in my case- the directory in question in the terminal, which worked, but it doesn't solve the trashcan problem.

CentOS 5 :: Ext4 And Moving Items To The Trashcan In Gnome Results In Nothing Showing In The Desktop Trashcan

May 21, 2010

On my home test 5.5 VM, after converting to ext4, moving items to the trashcan in Gnome results in nothing showing in the desktop Trashcan. Looks like a bug in gnome-vfs' support (or lack of it) for ext4, or have I got some other more subtle corruption going on? It's of little importance to me as I'm rarely in the GUI, but it would be nice to see confirmation or otherwise.

Ubuntu :: Trash Icon Still Shows Full When Empty?

Jul 2, 2010

Well I'll start off with the recent changes I've made. I have three hard drives in my PC, two of which are formated NTFS. I recently installed Storage Device Manager and changed a few options around so they auto-mount of start up. Well when I did this, and wanted to delete files off those drives, I suddenly was being promoted that I must delete them permanently or not all at (wouldn't go into the trash)

I added the lines to FSTAB: uid=1000,gid=1000 0 1

So for example my secondary drive is:


And also added .Trash-1000 folders in each of the two NTFS drives.

When I delete items off one of the two NTFS disks they go to the trash... I don't get the "delete forever" prompt and I can actually see them in the trash bin.

But when I empty the trash the icon remains that of the "full" trash, despite when I open it there being no trash in it.

Ubuntu :: Deleting Files / Trash Empty / Disk Still Full

Sep 27, 2010

I've been getting this error message:"The configuration defaults for GNOME Power Manager have not been installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator."a few times, and it turns out to be because of low disk space. No worry, I empty the trash uninstall unneeded programs and clean out the downloads folder that filled up my disk. And all is ok. But not this time.Since I can't use X, I delete stuff from the terminal, and also make sure to clean out the .Trash in both /home and /root. But still the disk is full. I delete more stuff, but it doesn't even seem to go to .Trash. It disappears, but no more disk space.

Debian Multimedia :: KRDC - Connect To ComboBox Is Empty

Nov 26, 2014

I've installed krdc in Debian 7 amd64 desktop (with KDE), but I cannot connect to anything with it:

"Connect to" combobox is empty. Entering "rdp://Username@" shows messagebox "The entered address cannot be handled". "Plugins" list is empty. "apt-cache search krdc" does not suggest any kind of "-plugn"'s that I could install. Deleting "~/.kde/share/config/krdcrc" does not work.

If launched inside terminal, it outputs this:

Code: Select allkrdc(30434)/kdecore (trader) KServiceTypeTrader::defaultOffers: KServiceTypeTrader: serviceType  "KRDC/Plugin"  not found
krdc(30434)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "remote_desktop_dockwidget" with KXMLGUIFactory!

What's that "KRDC/Plugin" and how to fix it.

Installed packaged:

Code: Select allapt-cache policy krdc
  Installed: 4:4.8.4-1+b1
  Candidate: 4:4.8.4-1+b1
  Version table:
 *** 4:4.8.4-1+b1 0
        500 wheezy/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

While rdesktop is installed and works OK, krdc looks like is dead-unsusable. Or at least it's usibility is hidden somewhere.

How do I make it work? Or should I report a bug?

Debian Multimedia :: Empty System Tray At KDE Startup

Jun 7, 2010

Occasionally I get on lenny an empty system tray when logging in KDE, no right click menu, no icons. The previous session had been closed regularly. Is there a way to properly shutdown in the circumstances and to fix the problem?

(I don't know whether this has something to do with this but, in the past, on typing by mistake the print screen key, I got multiple instances of ksnapshot launched automatically and had to delete the directory under 'home' ~/.kde/share/config/session and the file ~/.kde/share/config/ksmserverrc to prevent this from repeating itself at every KDE login. The empty tray issue, however did not arise immediately after this, so it might be unrelated.)

Debian Hardware :: When Plug In Charger OS Reports Battery As Empty

Feb 4, 2016

I am having a rather odd issue, this week I installed Debian latest on to an old Acer Aspire 3810TZ; everything runs smoothly enough and I spent a good number of hours using the laptop on battery (about two or three, the battery is checked and in good enough condition given its age) then as the desktop widget reported the battery as being 22% or so full I decided to plug in the charger at which point the os reported the battery as being 0% and issued an immediate hibernation.

I have done a fair bit of searching for others whom have had the same problem, as I am sure its not a new one. But the majority of what I have read revolves around batteries not charging and mine certainly does, I just have to have the laptop switched off while I do so (unless its booted into windows, in which case its fine.)

Below is the output of acpi and upower.

Code: Select allsimon@DLC:~$ acpi -b
Battery 0: Discharging, 96%, 05:47:01 remaining
simon@DLC:~$ upower -d
Device: /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/line_power_ADP1
  native-path:          ADP1
  power supply:         yes

[Code] ....

I am using the Cinnamon desktop environment ...

Debian Installation :: Resizing Drive During Install Leaves Empty Space Unusable

Sep 12, 2015

I just bought a new HP desktop, and I want to install Debian on the hard drive. I ran the Windows program on the Debian CD to start the install.

I selected Manual drive setting, and resized the large C: partition to 50 GB. I want to install Debian in some of the free space, only their isn''t any free space! The 400+ GB I took out of the C: partition is labeled "unusable" instead of "free space."

If I double click the unusable space, I am just given the cylinder/head/sector numbers. How I can make that space usable?

I would boot my Gparted CD, but I don't know how to get to the BIOS. The boot screen goes right to Windows without showing me the key to get to the BIOS. I tried hitting DEL, but to no effect. Do you know what the HP computers use to interrupt the boot?

Debian :: RAM Full Until Restart

Mar 1, 2015

I would like to know what to do in order to lower RAM usage after closing applications.

When the computer boots and user session is started RAM usage is 540MB. After browsing the web with Iceweasel, and developing in Eclipse and different applications like Umbrello (which I think that requires core KDE), when I close all the applications, the usage is like 1GB.

I have tried to logout and then login, but the usage is the same. If I restart, RAM will be at its lowest (550MB), but I would not like to restart every time I want to clean the memory.

Debian :: Root Partition Full But It Is Not?

May 18, 2015

Got problems with apt. So I discovered if I remove some stuff from root partition apt works normally again.

So I tested to copy 1GB file to root, but in the middle says disk is full, but there should be 1.8GB free if I type df -h.

Select alldf -h

Debian :: Get Full List Of Dependencies?

I have downloaded d4x download manager program but I do not know its dpendencies. I tried to install the single deb file with "Gdebi Package installer" but it showed an error of dependency. I downloaded that file too which itself could not be installed due to the same problem. The method of one by one file downloading was exhausting. Is there any program that accepts "d4x_2.5.7.1-5_amd64.deb" as input and givres me a full list of dependencies that must be saitisfied proior to installing the program with a single click? I want to give that list to a download manager.

Debian :: Get Full Installer On Bootable USB Stick

Jun 30, 2010

I've been trying to work out how to get a "full" debian installer (ie, not a netinst installer but as much as you'd find on say, the first CD) onto a bootable USB stick.Most of the tutorials I've seen work with the netboot installers only.The installer works until the "Detect and mount CD-ROM" step where it wants to mount a CD drive. Won't accept /dev/sdb or whatever device the USB stick is.

Using live-magic with the option to include the installer.The installer works until the "Detect and mount CD-ROM" step where it wants to mount a CD drive, as above. This confuses me, since why would live-magic include this capability if it didn't work for a USB stick?

Debian :: Root Partition Full Already Resize?

May 18, 2010

I recently installed Lenny and used the "Guided - Use Entire Disk" option.I made separate partitions for root, /etc, /var, /home, /usr and swap.I trusted that the auto partitioner would choose sensible sizes but possibly that was a bad move, root is only 340Mb and is full.

Debian :: Restore The 'full' Grub Menu?

Aug 5, 2010

Upon booting, the existing grub menu shows the Debian OS, but I also have Ubuntu installed on the same hard disk. It does not show in the menu. Previously I had Debian, Ubuntu, and Mint. In Ubuntu config file (menu.lst) I wanted to delete Mint and an old Ubuntu. I did so. In doing this I must have removed the 'full' menu.lst,leaving only Debian. So now I cannot boot into the new Ubuntu. I presently have only two OS on the hard disk: Debian and Ubuntu. I cant see Ubuntu, How do I correct this problem?

Debian :: Backing Up The Full System Onto A Bootable CD/DVD?

Nov 10, 2010

I come from a PCLinuxOS tradition (about two years), and a great full backup program was mklivecd, where I would use a GUI to make a bootable livecd/dvd with all my system which was handy in case something went wrong. Every week or so I would create a DVD ready for emergencies. After looking at the options in Debian (using Squeeze, and very happy with it for a few months now), I'm wondering if there is something similar. Remastersys, it seems, doesn't work with GRUB2 (only with GRUB-legacy), and Partimage makes images, not bootable CDs/DVDs. What is your full-backup/bootable system strategy, something, if possible, as easy/straightforward as mklivecd?

Debian :: File Manager Full Control?

Aug 22, 2011

I'm using the default GNOME file manager. But as a user I don't have any privileges to move files to/from the user folders to the system. I elevated my user to admin privileges, but this has no effect; I can't do any file management in the system area.

I can use the 'root terminal', but it would be much easier to use a GUI file manager--even drag 'n drop.How do I get the file manager to open up? I guessed one way to do this is to log in as 'Root' instead of user. But login won't allow an 'other' login when I try to use 'root' as a username. Is this the wrong approach? Dave
