Fedora :: Where Did 'Window Behavior' Go

Nov 27, 2009

There used to be an option within the Preferences section in Gnome for 'Window Behaviour' where you could change the behaviour of windows such as roll up on double click instead of maximize and that sort of stuff.I can't seem to find it on F12 and can't find anything else that allows me to adjust those types of behaviours.

Fedora :: Unable To Customize Window Behavior

Jun 29, 2010

I just installed Fedora 13. I am looking for the place to change my window behavior settings. I want windows to gain focus and move to foreground when I move the mouse over it. I had it set like this in Debian, and I have it that way in fedora 11 on my lap top. But for some reason I can't locate the settings. can someone tell me where it is in Fedora 13?

Slackware :: KDE 4.5 Bug In Configure Window Behavior

Oct 12, 2010

Has anyone noticed this bug in KDE 4.5? It started for me with the official 4.5.1 packages in -current, and is now continuing with Alien Bob's 4.5.2 packages. I don't think it happened with previous 4.5.0 builds I was using.

1) Right-click title bar, select "Configure Window Behavior"
2) the "Desktop Effects" option is selected by default, but displays the "Window Decorations" screen instead.
3) Clicking on another option on the left will show appropriate screen.
4) Finally clicking on "Desktop Effects" will show the proper screen to configure effects.

[URL]. [In the screenshot above, you can see "Desktop Effects" pre-selected, but displaying the wrong screen.]. Bug still shows up with a brand new user account with fresh .kde. My searching for other bug reports has turned up nothing, so I'm wondering if this is unique to slackware for whatever reason. I'm running slackware64-current, up to date, with NVIDIA binary drivers.

Ubuntu :: Window Behavior Changes When Adding Third Monitor

Feb 26, 2011

When I run my dual monitors with twinview on an NVidia GeForce 8400GS when I maximize a window it does it as you would expect (on one monitor) and when a pop up comes out of an application or when I bring up Synapse it appears in the center of my monitor. However, when I add a third monitor as a separate X window, the behavior of the windows on my dual screens becomes very different. It maximizes across both monitors, and Synapse opens with the center between the two monitors.Any thoughts on how to fix this or why it would change?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia Twinview Window Maximize Behavior?

Aug 22, 2010

I have 2 nvidia graphics cards and 3 monitors. One graphicss card is an nvidia 460 and the second one is an nvidia 8400 GS. I'm on Ubuntu lucid 64 bit gnome desktop. I use the nvidia drivers . 2 monitors are connected to the 460 card setup as twinview the last monitor is connected to the 8400 GS set as a separate xscreen.

When I now maximize a window on the 2 monitors which are set as twin view it expands this window gets stretched over both screens. I would like to know how I can set it so that an maximized window get only expands on the current screen in twinview so that I can still move windows from 1 screen to another.

General :: Modify The "Configure Window Behavior" Settings

Sep 12, 2010

I am trying to modify the "Configure Window Behavior" settings so that a new KWrite window will have a default size and location that is not affected by anything I did to a previous KWrite window. I have found that "Force" does that; unfortunately, "Force" also locks the window in position, preventing me from moving or resizing it if I should want to. Is there any setting that forces a default window size and location but allows me to change it?

Fedora :: Odd Widget And Desktop Behavior?

Jan 22, 2011

I'm running KDE on Fedora 13 and was trying to alter some display settings so that the windows wouldn't maximize when dragged to the edge of the screen. I did that, but at one point "Kwin" crashed, and now there's some odd things happening.

1. I get the "drag me" palm when I'm mousing over the desktop and if I click, I can drag the background around as if it were a window.

2. My "maximize" "minimize" and "close" buttons don't work.

3. It appears nothing in the titlebar of windows works: can't drag them, can't shade or do anything "clickable" -- close, min, max, nothing works.

I tried returning the settings to their original state but it didn't help.I tried restarting the computer too, and that didn't help. I'm guessing something crashed and a setting got hard set that shouldn't be. I'm also guessing that if I rename a .kde/something folder it will reset to defaults. What .kde folder should I play with?

Fedora :: Get Back Old Alt+Tab Behavior In F15/GNOME3?

May 28, 2011

After upgrading to F15 I noticed that Alt+Tab behaves now differently. For example, if I have several terminal windows open, I can't cycle through all of them by just pressing Alt+Tab repeatedly. Now the system just displays one terminal icon and icons for each terminal window, but if I keep pressing Tab (Alt being down all the time), it does not switch the window.

I want back the old behavior of the Alt+Tab keys!

Fedora :: Live CD'S Unexpected Behavior At Installation

Sep 17, 2009

1 Choose install to free space on HD where Lenny was the only other OS. No windows this unit.

2. Progressed through disk one and 2 and at end of 2 when no question was asked concerning MBR I knew I had lost dual boot.

3. Fedora booted and I thought the first thing I will do is contact forum and see if I can correct these shortcomings. No internet access in Fedora and that was due I am sure to a choice at setup I did not realize.

4. So I put gparted live CD in, deleted that partition, rebooted to a black screen with word grub flashing cursor and sorry I forgot the text.

5. Went back with gparted to look over the partition and all I could see was the boot flaf was gone (If I remember right that is not a necessity as long as there is /. But I went to flags checked it again rebooted same screen. Obviously Fedora did something to MBR?

6. Deleted Lenny, reinstalled and here I am so someone satisfy my curious nature.

Fedora :: FC15 Hibernate Behavior Different From FC14

Aug 31, 2011

I have just upgraded my Lenovo T61 from FC14 to FC15. Under FC14, I had the system set up to hibernate when the lid was closed. When I opened the lid, the system would automatically come out of hibernation in just a few seconds and I would be back to where I was.

Under FC15, I have also set it to hibernate when the lid closes. When I open the lid, nothing happens until I tap the power button, and then it comes out of hibernation via some kind of reboot: I see the Lenovo splash screen, then the machine beeps and goes into a wakeup routine, which takes much longer than it did under FC14.

Fedora :: PulseAudio USB Device Default Behavior Wrong

Feb 8, 2010

Based on my experience with external devices such as USB microphones and USB speakers, PulseAudio always defaults to the motherboard/built-in device rather than any USB device.My expectation is that if someone is using an external USB device to supplement what is on the motherboard/built-in, they are going to be doing that to overcome a limitation of the motherboard/built-in devices, and therefore it is logical that when external USB devices are present on a system, these be the default. (For example, I want sound from my beefy set of Logitech USB speakers and not from the tinny notebook speakers).

It is no problem for me to manually set/reset the active device, however I believe that the average user expects to plug in a USB microphone or speakers and assume that the system will automatically change the default. Furthermore without this action, some users not used to the Linux audio settings will be led to believe that the USB devices are not supported, when in fact it is simply a problem that they have not been selected for use rather than the motherboard/built-in devices.I think this warrants me entering a bug report, but I wanted to hear what others think before proceeding to enter a bug report.Is the default behavior of PulseAudio towards USB devices wrong? What do you think?

Fedora :: FC12 - Weird Behavior With Video Resolution

Mar 26, 2010

I have FedoraCore 12 x86 DVD already installed since the last weekend, no Internet connection available yet for such PC for lack of time to work in such PC. Since two days ago my video resolution has a weird behavior (I only did one configuration change about pass 800x600 to 1024x768) and since there I never did other change video resolution, and with the new configuration I have been using Linux without problems. Now two days ago When I start up the PC and arrive to the login screen I can see clearly that the resolution for my all graphical interface can be 800x600.

After to enter to my account I see the follow behavior, that consist in load the graphical environment and changing to 1024x768 resolution. See my Photo01.png, after that the pointer of my mouse (black row) never is show, I must do something like Photo02.png to see the black row. My only solution by the moment is arrive to the configuration resolution (see Photo03.png) and only do click in Apply button to refresh all the environment and see the desired black row (pointer), see Photo04.png, but I must do this each time when I start up the PC.

Is there some way top stop the "blind effect" of compiz so that when you double click the top title bar of a window that it maximizes the window instead of the rolling up type effect? Also when i place my mouse on the top right of the screen it brings it to a choosing window type mode where you can pick which window you would like to open, is it possible to get this on the top left of the screen instead? Lastly when I use Kdebluetooth4 to send a file to my computer where does that file save to?

Programming :: C++ Behavior Different On Win/ubuntu?

Jun 9, 2011

So i have this simple c++ program, which has an array of ints and a pointer to it. Then i have to change one element in the array. Problem is that on ubuntu(netbeans) it works the first time i change the element, then for the other times there is no change in the array after leaving the function.

First i thought it was a bug, but i tried the code on win(visual studio) and it worked like it should.

I don't understand what the problem is? Im not using any platform specific function(that i know of )?

Debian Installation :: Odd NIC Behavior On Install?

Sep 10, 2010

Using a Realtek 8111/8168b Revision 1 NIC on a desktop comp, it's being detected by Lenny, Squeeze, and Gentoo (09/02/2010) installers (all are AMD64 distro's being run on a dual core intel processor), the r8169 driver is being loaded automatically on all of them. However, at the moment the NIC is detected during the net-installs, it goes dead until power has been cut. The switch doesn't register it as being active, nor do any of the activity lights on the motherboard register it as being active.In Gentoo's setup I can run an ifconfig and see the NIC as eth0 as it should be, I can ping the loopback as well as a statically assigned IP address. However pinging anything else in the LAN results in timeouts, and anything outside of the LAN results in hosts not found.

OpenSUSE :: How To Adjust CD Mounting Behavior

Feb 19, 2010

Under Suse 11.1 & KDE 3.5, when a CD was inserted, the disk was automatically mounted at /media/cd-label. With 11.2 & KDE 4, I get a pop-up from the task bar, from which I must select the CD, and then select the Open With File Manager option. Then (and only then) is the CD mounted at /media/cd-label.Is there a setting that I can change that will eliminate the requirement for all the mouse clicks and just have a CD automatically

Ubuntu :: Different NTFS Volume Behavior In 10.04?

May 17, 2010

Ubuntu 64 bit is installed on the hard disk with two partitions: one for Ubuntu, another is NTFS partition called Shared. Before upgrading to 10.04 Shared volume was available. To mount it, it was necessary to enter the password.After upgrading to 10.04, I see two volumes: Shared and Shared_. Places menu contains Shared item. When I click it, it opens without password, and shows /media/Shared_, with correct contents. Original Shared volume appears in the media directory:


root@alex-64:/media# ls -l
total 12
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 2010-04-21 19:49 cdrom -> cdrom0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2010-04-21 19:49 cdrom0
drwx------ 2 root root 4096 2010-05-09 08:25 Shared
drwx------ 1 alex alex 4096 2010-05-17 08:56 Shared_

Shared volume is empty. Can this be fixed? It is OK to work with Shared_ volume?

Ubuntu :: Odd Behavior In Lucid After Boot?

Jun 3, 2010

I upgraded to Lucid from Karmic a few weeks ago. The upgrade went fine. Then I decided to move my exit, maximize, and minimize buttons to the right side. I used Ubuntu Tweak to do this. Since that time I have very odd behavior after I boot Lucid.The booted system comes up with an X for a cursor. There are no exit, maximize, and minimize buttons on my window bar. Finally, I can open a terminal, but cannot type anything in it.Sometimes I can get things back to normal by using Ubuntu Tweak to move the buttons to the left or right (depending on where they were before the boot). Sometimes I have to open System>Preferences>Appearance> and change Visual Effects from None to Normal or vice versa.I have tried metacity --replace (after getting the terminal window to allow me to type in data), but after I reboot, things are back the way they were. I have an Nvidia GeForce 7300 LE on board graphics card, and I am using the Nvidia current version driver. When things are working correctly, System Monitor shows a compiz process running but not a metacity process. Is this correct?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Tried - Very Odd Screen Behavior?

Apr 12, 2011

I just tried uprgading from 10.10 on my daughter's pc to 11.04(beta) as we wanted to find out about Unity et al. I thought the upgrade went well but on reboot when the desktop comes up, it's all funky in behavior - mouse is jump, arrows don't reliably work the menus - odd background images show up in graphic blocks. Do you think I can salvage this, or should I am I stuck reloading back to 10.10?

General :: Emulate Mouse Behavior On Windows/Mac?

Feb 19, 2011

I predominantly use Ubuntu at home, which means I am used to "highlight 'copies' and center click 'pastes'" (I believe this is true for all X-windows-sever machines, but I don't know). Unfortunately, that is not the behavior on the machines I use at work (I have a Mac and Win 7.). Is there an application which would let me imitate this mouse behavior for either of those OS's?

It seems to be in an endless cycle without me doing anything to wake it. Is there any way to fix this? It's killing my power usage.

Ubuntu :: Odd Behavior From Update Manager - DeVeDe?

Apr 10, 2010

I have been having a frustrating issue with Ubuntu 9.04 on both my laptop and desktop machines for several days now. An Icon shows in the panel telling me there was a problem with updating. Attempts to update hangs on waiting for headers @ 99% but ultimately times out. I have not been able to update successfully for some time. Add to this the fact that DeVeDe will not respond. Trying to run DeVeDe from the Applications menu does nothing, running the program from the command line does nothing. Attempts to uninstall return this warning:


dpkg: error while cleaning up:
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:

Attempts to start Synaptic return this:


E: The package devede needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
E: Internal error opening cache (1). Please report.

Ubuntu :: Emulate Win + Left And Win + Right Windows 7 Behavior

Oct 11, 2010

These are 2 cool shortcuts in Windows 7:

[Windows+Left] - Dock window to the left side
[Windows+Right] - Dock window to the right side

When you press Windows + left arrow the active window occupies 50% of the screen (on the left), and when you press Windows + right arrow the active window occupies 50% of the screen on the right. I have tried to set this up with gnome on Ubuntu but have't managed it so far. I am sure this can be setup in gnome. How can it be done? In summary this splits two windows on the screen so one window occupies 50% of screen on left and the other on the right, how can this be setup and executed pronto on ubuntu?
