Debian Multimedia :: Search File Contents From Gnome-Shell

Dec 16, 2014

I have tracker installed, and when I use "tracker-search ..." from terminal, I can find files as expected. In particular, it searches within file contents, not just the titles.

I was hoping to have similar functionality directly from gnome-shell. I've found a number of extensions to do this such as: [URL] .... but none of them work (gnome 3.14, debian Jessie).

How to set up file contents search directly from gnome in Jessie?

Debian Multimedia :: File Search In Nautilus Hangs

Jun 26, 2014

As of today I can't seem to use the search feature of Nautilus (in GNOME 3). Say I open my home folder and press Ctrl-F to get the search bar. Whatever I type, as soon as I stop typing and Nautilus should start the search process, it just freezes completely. The cursor stops blinking and that's it, all I can do is run `killall nautilus` from a terminal. According to the System Monitor nothing is really using CPU.

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome Shell Slows Down Over Time

Jun 6, 2015

I find gnome-shell 3.14.2 becomes slugish after several days of use. This manifests in short delays on window functions, such as closing a window or opening a new one. Restarting gnome shell fixes it.I thought of trying to take a stack trace during the delay, but found 2 issues:

1) debian doesn't have gstack/pstack package ...?
2) attaching a debugger to gnome shell from gnome shell hangs it (duh) , which means I can't type the "bt" command

Debian Multimedia :: Current Status Of Gnome Shell?

Jul 28, 2010

I'm using Squeeze, and haven't seen an update in the Debian repo for some time. Seeing as it's due for release soon (September), can we expect some updates in the near future? I had been using Gnome Shell in Ubuntu with much success, including compiling my own. These days, I cannot afford the bandwidth, and have encountered an unknown problem [URL] under Debian Squeeze. Currently, I'm experiencing a very annoying flickering issue using the repo version which I know does not exist anymore in the current gnome development. To have at least one update now before the release date would be nice to see.

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome - Window Borders And Shell Theme Look Like As Before

I've recently upgraded to gnome shell in experimental, and I like it so far. However, the window borders and themes look like how Gnome 2 did before you install gtk2-engines and some themes. Are there any themes in the repositories that I'm missing, or are they just not there yet?

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome-shell Does Not Start Logging In Via Gdm3 Greeter

Oct 8, 2015

Some days ago (2015-09-28) I installed Debian testing amd64. Log in as a user failed and instead of the Gnome UI there was a sad face with the text: „Oh no! Something has gone wrong. A problem occurred and the system can't recover.

All extensions have been disabled as a precaution. Log out“.

The relevant output of journalctl (run as root) said:

etc/gdm3/Xsession[5379]: cannot connect to brltty at :0
- /etc/gdm3/Xsession[5379]: Service 'org.kde.kaccessibleapp' does not exist.
- gnome-session[5379]: x-session-manager[5379]: WARNING: Application 'gnome-shell.desktop' killed by signal 5
- gnome-session[5379]: x-session-manager[5379]: WARNING: App 'gnome-shell.desktop' respawning too quickly
- x-session-manager[5379]: Unrecoverable failure in required component gnome-shell.desktop

[Code] ...

After some investigating, I found three work-arounds.

(1) Use gdm3-autologin: In /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf, remove the double crosses and insert own user name
AutomaticLoginEnable = true
AutomaticLogin = <own user name>
Disadvantage: Only one user can have access to the Gnome ui. If you log out, you enter the gdm3 greeter and … see above.

(2) Turn off gdm3 by running 'systemctl stop gdm3' as root, log in into a terminal as a user and run startx.

(3) Install package lightdm and make it to the standard display manager with 'dpkg-reconfigure lightdm'.
Disadvantage: Energy manager and screensaver settings of the Gnome control center are ignored.

The easiest way, however, especially if there are several users, is logging in via the gdm3 greeter.

Ubuntu :: Search For Multiple File Extensions At Once In Gnome

Jan 1, 2010

Does anyone know of a way to perform a search for multiple file extensions at once in Gnome? I know that M$ Windows Explorer had this capability, but I'm just not sure how to do it in Gnome, or if it's possible. I just want to be able to perform searches for Video, Music, and Document file types, without having to perform a separate search for each file extension. Example: When doing a search for Video file types (.avi,.mp4,.mov,.wma, etc.), I would like to do one search for all files that have these file extensions, instead of doing one search for .avi files, a second search for .mp4 files, another for .mov files, etc.

Debian :: Choose Keyboard Model In Gnome Shell?

Jul 24, 2011

I've recently upgraded my squeeze to sid, then installed gnome shell as default window manager.

1. Gnome shell was normal until yesterday, I upgraded new packages up to date, then I cannot log into gnome shell any more (however, fallback mode is normal). It shows a sad computer screen with message "Oh no, something has gone wrong". The only thing I can do is pressing the logout button to log out.

2. Debian is running on my thinkpad T60p, and I can choose keyboard model in Gnome2, but I can't find any options in the system setting in Gnome shell to change keyboard layout for model IBM T60/R60.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Fglrx, ATI Mobility 4200 - Lockups Gnome - 3 -shell

Oct 17, 2010

I have installed the fglrx driver from "Hardware Drivers" and it runs fine, until I launch gnome3 or gnome-shell, it then just locks X (its not hard locked, I can CTRL + ALT + 2/3 etc out) but I cant do anything else.

If I use the mesa / xorg driver its fine.

The trouble is I play one game, and I need the fglrx driver for that game, the mesa one corrupts the 3d engine

It wouldnt be a pain, but i am one of the few who seems to find gnome-shell an improvement, and I get really frustrated when it wont work.

Any idea's on what I can try, other than hopfully having a working system when ATI launches the 10.10 driver on its website (although the leaked rc had the same issue) I only recently got a ATI card so I am pretty new when dealing with the ATI cat's.

Debian Multimedia :: Icedove - Search All Mails

Mar 23, 2015

I'm using Debian stable wheezy and icedove 31.5.0.

I have many different accounts set up on my icedove and sometimes I don't remember on which account I received the specific email I'm looking for, so I would like to be able to search through all my folders (say, absolutely all folders: all accounts, inbox, sent, trash, drafts, etc...).

Neither the quick filter toolbar, nor the "Search message" (Ctrl-Shift-F) feature seem to allow this. Now that's where the brand new shining "Global Search" (Ctrl-K) feature should be useful. However it does not seem to support partial match. So for instance if I'm looking for someone named "Lebenhaus GrossGrabenstein" but only remember that his name contains "Gross", the search through global search will return no result.

I'm pretty sure it was possible to do a proper search (with partial matching) accross all mails in previous versions of icedove, but I cannot find it anymore.

Right now the only workaround I have is to do a "grep -R" on my ~/.icedove folder, which is not very efficient and not flexible at all...

Debian :: Installing Minimal Gnome-shell After Stretch Netinst?

Jan 27, 2016

I've just installed debian testing on my computer (netinst AKA basic shell version). Now, how do I do a minimal gnome install? Minimal means, I don't need libreoffice or any extra bloat. However, I do want nautilus, gnome-settings-daemon and networkmanager (and of course, firefox!).

Also, is audio included or not in gnome-shell?

If I just install the gnome-shell package (with --no-install-recommends package), will it pull in gdm, Xorg, etc. or do I have to install them separately? Also, need to confirm whether my sources.list is properly set or not:

Code: Select alldeb http://ftp.security.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib

Ubuntu :: Create Shell Script To Copy Contents Of A Shared Folder On A XP PC?

Apr 8, 2011

I was wondering if there would be a way for me to copy the contents of a shared folder that's running on an XP system using shell script. Actually, there are two shared folders that I want to do this with. I want to be able to launch the script and automatically copy all the contents of each folder into two separate folders on my ubuntu desktop. For example;

Lets say that I have Shared Folders A1 and A2 on my networked XP system and I have Folders B1 and B2 on my Ubuntu desktop. I want the script to automatically copy the contents of A1 into B1 and likewise for A2 and B2. During the copying, I want the script set up such that any pre-existing files in the B1 & B2 folders will automatically get overwritten by the ones copied from A1 & A2.Is there any possibilities of me achieving this?

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Gnome Shell - Could Not Update ICEauthority File /home/user/.ICEauthority

May 1, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 with Unity as the default desktop environment, but I wanted Gnome 3 instead. So the installation of Gnome 3 and Gnome Shell went through, and I'm presented with a nice "gnomeish" gdm, but when I type my user password and try to log in all I get is this:

Code: Could not update ICEauthority file /home/pontus/.ICEauthority And all I can click is a button that logs me out.

I've tried from the terminal to change owner and rights and I've even tried to delete the file, but I still get this dialog every time I log in.
