Ubuntu :: Support For Language While Keeping English As Language Used To Display Desktop?

Mar 5, 2011

I have some music in another language, but when I open the songs in Banshee, their song names just come up as weird characters (like μ).I went to [System --> Administration --> Language Support] and installed support for that language, but the songs still come up like μ. (But in Nautilus, their proper names show).

I know the solution is to change my whole system language to that language, but I don't want to do that, as I am not very fluent in it. Is there any way to enable support for that language while keeping English as the language used to display my desktop?

Ubuntu :: Changing The Login Keyboard Language?

Apr 4, 2010

I changed the Language and the keyboard to Amharic (normally I use US English). Ever since then I have been unable to log in as the keyboard is typing in Amharic and the original password was created in US English. I also tried << Ctrl+Alt+F1 >> and typed in the login name and password, even Root and the password but no luck.

OpenSUSE :: Keyboard Layout Changing Randomly - GNOME In Slovak Language

Jan 30, 2010

I have openSUSE 11.2 with default GNOME desktop and i'm facing issues with keyboard layouts, which are changing randomly. Problem is that i have GNOME in Slovak language and therefore has openSUSE set durring installation my keyboard layout to 'Slovak' but i always change it to 'Slovak QWERTY' which suits me better.
Problem is that randomly system adds back to my layouts which are 'Slovak QWERTY' and 'USA' also original 'Slovak' layout which was previously removed.

I must always manually remove this third layout and it's very frustrating. Many times on fresh system boot it's anyway back and so on and on... Where may lie the problem? Why is GNOME not respecting my settings? In Ubuntu i never have these basic issues. Are there on system boot some specific SUSE triggers which are overwriting my configuration?

Debian Multimedia :: Changing Mimetypes In Nautilus?

Feb 9, 2010

I'm a user of Kicad, a schematic/printed circuit design suite. Kicad uses the extension '.mod' for its component module library files. When I view these files in Nautilus, (or one of my other file managers), they are displayed with a music note, and the file type is shown as 'Amiga SoundTracker audio'. I've never had such a file on any of my computers, and I'm fairly certain I never will. However, I have lots of Kicad module files on several computers. How can I make Nautilus report the correct filetype, or at least report an unknown filetype so my PCB libraries don't look like music files?

Here's what I've tried so far. I searched my whole system for files containing the string 'Amiga SoundTracker'. The only files that came up were three XML files: freedesktop.org.xml, mime.xml, and x-mod.xml.In each of these files I found one line that referred to both the extension '.mod' and the phrase 'Amiga AoundTracker'. (Also, in each case the line of code was the only one in its file that referred to the extension '.mod'). I commented out only this line in each of the three files, saved, and re-booted. After re-boot I confirmed that my changes to the files had persisted, yet my file managers still report my library files as 'Amiga SoundTracker'.Can I correct these filetypes, or am I out of luck?

Debian Multimedia :: XFCE - Changing Directory Icons

Jul 3, 2015

I want to give some of my directories special folder icons. For example, I have a Projects directory and I noticed that there is a special 'projects' directory icon available in my icon theme; I think that it would be nice to use that icon instead of the default directory icon.Google informs me that the file ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs can be edited to give certain directories special properties, including special icons. However, all my changes to the file get reverted after restarting my computer. Is there a way to make changes to user-dirs.dirs permanent?

Debian Multimedia :: Changing The Gphoto2 Download Directory?

Apr 16, 2010

This is probably a stupid question, but is there any way to change the location where gphoto2 dumps the photos it downloads from the camera? Right now it just dumps the them in the current directory.

I've looked through the man page and nothing jumps out at me. The only thing I can think of doing is moving the downloaded photos to a new directory via a hook script, but before I go down that route, is there some kind of option I missed?

Debian Multimedia :: Shortcuts For Changing Workspaces Don't Work

Dec 18, 2010

I installed a new login theme and I noticed that my shortcuts for changing workspaces don't work anymore. When I went to my keyboard shortcuts menu I found a completely different list of shortcuts, so I believe that I'm using a different Windows Manager than I've been using since installing Debian.

Guess I was wrong, I went into gconf-editor, went to metacity's keyboard shortcuts, and found mine disabled. I set them up again there and now they work again, even though they don't show up in the Keyboard Shortcuts menu.

Debian Multimedia :: Gdm3 Hangs After Changing User Name?

Jan 15, 2011

I changed my user name with the following commands:usermod -l $newname $oldnamegroupmod -n $newname $oldname usermod -d /home/$newname -m $newnameAlso replaced every instance of /home/$oldname ith /home/$newname in ~/.config.Now gdm3 hangs with a black screen and wristwatch icon. (I can move the icon with the mouse.) This worked fine with gdm. I've looked for gdm3 files that have /home/$oldname in my home and in /etc and couldn't find anything significant.Anyone have any ideas or suggestions on how to fix this or where to look? For now, I've disabled gdm3, and I'm using startx. This is an installation in virtualbox. I just tried using ctrl-alt-F1, but it dropped me to console in the host system. (Nice rush of adrenaline came with that.)

The only errors in Xorg.0.log are there even with a successful startx. (EE) Failed to load module "xboxvideo" (module does not exist, 0)(EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directoryCouple more bits of relevant information - this was a live-build that I installed using refractainstaller. I also changed /etc/inittab to disable auto-login. Here are the changes, original lines commented out, new lines look like the inittab in my regular squeeze install, but I don't think this is the problem (see below.)

#1:2345:respawn:/bin/login -f user </dev/tty1 >/dev/tty1 2>&1
#2:23:respawn:/bin/login -f user </dev/tty2 >/dev/tty2 2>&1
#3:23:respawn:/bin/login -f user </dev/tty3 >/dev/tty3 2>&1

Debian Multimedia :: Changing Default Text Editor In Xfce

May 28, 2015

I would like to set the default text editor in Xfce to gedit. The only solution that I found on Google was to right click on a given text file, select 'open with other application', sleect gedit, and make sure that the "use as default kind" button is checked. Unfortunately this only works for text files with the same extension as the original file. Is there a way of setting every text file to open with gedit by default that doesn't involve repeating this exercise for every possible text file extension (.c, .py, .h, .hs, etc.)?

General :: KDE Stop Virtual Desktop Changing When Click On The Desktop?

Sep 18, 2011

I'm new to KDE and am running KDE 4.7.1 on top of Arch Linux. It's fantastic however I have one problem - virtual desktops. Yeah I know there are those "activities" things which people say replace virtual desktops and I will look into them, but for the moment I want to stick with what I know.

And it's almost set up too. In fact, it is, apart from one issue: Say I'm on desktop 3 and I click on the desktop (as in - the bit with my wallpaper, etc, not the little square in my panel) - it immediately switches to desktop 1. Got no idea why I'd want it to do that and it's bugging me.

Ubuntu :: Translate Automatically Desktop Menus In Another Language?

Jun 10, 2010

I have 2 machines running under Lucid Lynx (one a 32-bit laptop, the other a 64-bit desktop). I created on both an account for my wife, and she wants a french environment. Now, when I installed the language packs (using Language Support from System), and I logged into her account for the first time, I selected "language = french" on the login screen, and on the desktop, there was a popup window asking me whether I wanted to translate the desktop menus to french. I said yes, and that happened.However, I did more or less the same thing on the laptop, and although the keyboard is french, and the date and so on is french, I didn't get this popup window asking for a menu translation. Changing the login language, and then changing again to french, didn't trigger this.

Is there a way (command line ?) to trigger this automatic menu translation tool?I think that the language packs are all installed.

Ubuntu :: Language Support - Each User Can Select Their System Language When Login?

Nov 1, 2010

One computer .... three users .... three languages. How do you make that happen? User A speaks English and is happy with English. No problem. User B needs to use Chinese and would like the full system in Chinese. User C needs to use Thai and Chinese. They would prefer their menus to be in Thai and can use iBus for Chinese entry. How do you set up the system so that each user can select their system language when they login?

Debian Multimedia :: Changing "temperature" Of Screen?

May 19, 2010

Has anyone heard of a program called f.lux? Home page is here:[URL]The idea is that "it makes the color of your computer's display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day." So late at night it doesn't strain your eyes too much and doesn't deceive your brain into staying up too late.Is there any kind of OSS equivalent to this, as it seems a binary-only offering. Does Debian have anything remotely similar?

Debian Multimedia :: Desktop Windows Lag ?

Jan 19, 2011

I recently switched to Debian Lennyx64 (from ubuntu) and I am really enjoying it so far. I have just one problem, when I drag open windows of any program around on my desktop there is major drawing lag of the window.

This happens in other situations like it is very painful to watch a fast moving IRC chat because of this lag.

I've tried using different windows managers and enviroments and the problem still exists. I have a pair of crossfired Radeon 4850s and I have the drivers installed from AMD's website. I have a first gen Phenom x4 with 8gb of RAM so I don't think its an issue with resources. I tried looking at the Xorg.conf but I really do not know what to look for.
