I'm a new Ubuntu user and a Python programmer, it's the first time that I use Python in Ubuntu so it's a bit confusing me. If I want to save a Module or something in a specified map, I get 'Errno 13', it says that I don't have permission to edit, do thing in that map. And this is also for importing files with Python. I logged in from Terminal with 'sudo -i' and closed Terminal, but the problem keeps repeating. How do I login as Admin or Root and stay as Admin or Root? I need right to edit/read files as well as root and normal user.
An example: Python file: test.py -> test = open('/a.txt', 'w') test.write('Test - Test - Test') test.close
When I execute this, I get in the Python IDLE the 'Errno 13' problem and below the 'Errno 13' it says that I don't have permission. Who know how to stay logged in as root, even if the user has not logged in or isn't this possible, if it isn't then I just want to get files moving, editing/erasing etc.
I just completed a fresh install of the weekly jessie build (downloaded today). All I've done is install updates, add my username to sudoer list, and reboot. When I did, the xfce panel was not there. When I right clicked, Apps, Panel, it opened with an error that I cannot make changes unless I save my session and that it's in kiosk mode. After a logoff or reboot, it's still not there. I saw one thread asked for the output of /.xsession-errors, which I've done, and it doesn't look good... I'm just not sure how to fix:
Code: Select allopenConnection: connect: No such file or directory cannot connect to brltty at :0 /usr/bin/x-session-manager: X server already running on display :0 xfce4-session-Message: ssh-agent is already running; starting gpg-agent without ssh support
The default menus in XFCE don't include many things that I want to use from KDE. How can I get those on the XFCE menus? There is a so-called "menu editor" in the settings menu, but it has no documentation
How to enable Root login...i cant copy or move something on the HDD...I have administrator rights and password for root but i cant change permissions for the HDD without login on root and root login are not allowed .
A couple weeks after I installed the xfce desktop version of Linux Mint, I became unable to log in to my own desktop. I enter my password, but the screen fades to black and then fades back in to the login screen.
I am able to log in using the recovery mode terminal and everything works as expected. I can log in to the Mint desktop as root, but the superuser can't view my files. Instead, there are only a .desktop file and a README telling me that my files have been unmounted (they're not on their own partition) and they give me instructions on how to remount them.
So I follow the instructions. Running the .desktop through the browser GUI quickly opens and closes a terminal, doing nothing. Running ecryptfs-mount-private, as the README recommends, reports:
Code: ERROR: Encrypted private directory is not setup properly And that's where I'm stuck.
I edited fstab to automatically mount my windows data partition on boot, but I screwed it up by not specifying the file system type, however that is not the problem, I was able to fix that easily. The problem was that when it failed to mount the partition, Debian automatically entered root and I guess that is to be expected in order for me to fix it, but I never configured a root password and it just gave me full root access without asking any password, not even my user password. I though that was strange so I set the root password and sure thing it asked me for the root password this time without automatically logging into root....
I then tried to lock the root account to see if it will ask me for a password or not, it did but of course I wasn't able to login as root because it was locked now and I was left with no way to access the system. I had to fix fstab from a live cd so that I can login normally as the user....
I didn't know what to search for or if that is the expected behavior if you don't set root password during installation, but it just seemed a bit strange to automatically enter root when you specifically disable root login during installation...
Got my T2i a few days ago. Shot a bunch of short MOV files. Trying to do simple edits like trimming the beginning and ends. Nothing else.
Cinelerra 4 - no sound Kdenlive - aside from crashing all the time, renders with unacceptable artifacts. Lives - spends a long time making proxies then crashes Avidemux - crashes on save/render Kino - plays back first frame then last frame. Kinda funny but not. Open Movie Editor - Does nothing at all Open Shot - Can't find any libs PiTiVi - Tools? We don't need no stinkin' editing tools.
Will Lunmeria be released before I die? Will Lightworks be released before I die?
Is it time to retrench back into Windows 7 where there are numerous editors that actually work? Sure, costs money but the free stuff just dont work.
BTW, VLC plays the files back beautifully -- no skips, no jerks, sound completely in tact.
I haven't put this in the forums for any of the separate programs, because im having the same problem in all of them, im thinking maybe its a problem elsewhere?I recently got a Canon DSLR. It can save in Raw format, I use this function. Canons Raw format is "Whatever.CR2"F spot viewer and all editor programs see then and 'preview' them with no problem. The images appear to have no problem until you load them into GIMP (with UFRAW) UFRAW standalone, RAWStudio etc.
They load, but only as a small vertical rectangle. Often very purple in colour.I thought maybe it was something wrong with just the way it looked, so I just loaded one, went save as (a jpeg) and then loaded it up, it loaded as a small picture of the same purple-haze bar.Have I done something wrong? I googled it, downloaded UFRaw, even Ubuntu studio, same problem before and after studio installation. All these programs claim to read raw images.Just as an example, In RawStudio:I load up the folder of raw images. I can see all the images clearly with no problems in the preview slider up top. I can scroll through them and see them all no problem. When I click on one, it loads in the editing box as some weird bar (always vertical in orientation) often faintly resembling part of the photo but with seriously acid trip colours. Eg massive purple hazes, green everything etc.
Just got a pretty fresh install of Debian/XFCE. Both monitors work out of the box on my 8400GS. I was unable to find an option to change it so I can span is as 1 work space instead of having them mirrored.
I just a newbie.i want to try customize my desktop.i found a website shown linux desktop very greatfull, like this :but i don't know how to start it.any expert guys please let me know the guiding for me to start this.
I was trying to edit some files in /usr . so I did "chown -R username /usr" as root . after editing, I did "chown -R root /usr" !!!!! it made me unable to open Yast and VirtualBox and many other features and applications . is there anyway to fix this ? I think some files in /usr was not owned by root,
I used dvgrab to pull the video off of my Cannon HV30 HDV camcorder. Now I have a bunch of 5 minute clips at about a gig each. I need to edit these together and use a better file type. What should I convert to, and what program should I use for encoding and editing?
I was having a problem with the sound not going up to a high volume on my machine, so I tried following some online tutorials and ended up destroying the sound system on my machine. Now, instead of just having quite sound, I have no sound. The machine is a Dell Precision server and the attached files show my sound configuration. Ideally, I would like a way to make the sound louder (>100%), but now I will settle for just having sound.

The problem is that I cannot switch between users.I have copied a script from another site, but it will only open a new lightdm in a new display (tty8) while the other user's session is still active (tty7).
In xscreensaver, the same thing happens. If I click New Login, it will open a new lightdm session in a new display.I have searched in Google and these forums for some time already and I could not find any solution.I have just installed Debian 8.1 and XFCE in this computer, migrating from Debian 7.8 and Gnome. What I want is the same effect (or similar) to what gdm/gnome does.I have also found a solution that's about installing xfswitch-plugin, but it will also install gdm3 and lots of gnome dependencies.
Out of daemons desperation* i had to install xfce4 Ok: kidding aside. I would like to add a shortcut to open the menu, but can't figure out how to call it. I checked */bin, but it ain't mentioned there. *heck: I think desolation is the better word.
I have just installed Squeeze and my xfce works, but I don't get a panel, unless I start it manually withxfce4-panel &As this worked,ded it to the automatically started applications. I logged-out and then back in but no panel. I did a ps -ef | grep -i paneland the panel doesn't appear to be running.
I recently gave XFCE a try, after using Openbox for a long time and I really like it, so that I think I will switch totally to XFCE. All is working fine, except one thing: I really would like to have event sounds.
So I launched the Appearance-Module and checked under the Settings-tab both Enable event sounds and Enable input feedback sounds. Following the tooltip for the event sounds I also installed libcanberra, but I get absolutely no event sound.
I thought, maybe there is a lack of a sound theme, so I also installed freedesktop-sound-theme, but that didn't help. I did already searched with Google and in this forum, but have found nothing that would help me. I would be very happy if anyone can give me an advice what to check or has a link to a tutorial for this sounds.
