I installed Skype only because it is necessary to Pidgin to handle the Skype service/protocol. I use Pidgin for many protocols included the IRC, so I don't need Skype icon in the system tray at all. Honestly I hate Skype, but unfortunately it seems that all the world use it. how to take off that terrible icon/indicator/applet from the systray. I searched in all system to find a configuration file, I opened few named Skype using vi to avoid to damage them, but I have not found nothing interesting for my scope. PS: don't tell me how I will switch on or off Skype, because a plug-in of Pidgin do it w/o user interaction.
I have messed up, I downloaded something about gnash through the repositories trying to get a flash player to feed my little house on the prairie on ..... habit(I know, addiction is sad). Anyway, it didn't work but now it won't let me remove it. I have flash player installed but it's doing the same thing as gnash by itself, I have black lines across the screen instead of a flash player. Is their some way I can force it to remove gnash?

When I boot up my Ubuntu system I get the following error message:Install Problem The configuration defaults for Gnome Power Management have been installed incorrectlyI found the following posting and this describes what also happesystemhttps://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu...uestion/111256I've created a recovery disk by using a memory stick from which I can boot. I can mount the old filesystem (HD). When I navigate, with the file browser, into one of the folder on the the HD and try to delete messages I get the following error message - 'Error removing file: Permission denied'.I guess I need to log / tell those files the root password from the system installation as per the version on the HD. But how do I do this?
I have some very confidental files on my computer that I store such as credit reports, and other things. I always encrypt them with GPG, but there still is that original non-encrypted file left that needs to be deleted. I looked into tools like wipe, and shred but they all say that it really doesn't help on journaling filesystems directly on their man page.
I am not asking how to wipe the whole drive with dd or anything, but I am simply asking if there is a tool that'll delete a single file securely.
I use Markdown to store all of my source documents. Unfortunately, the .md extension maps to application/x-genesis-rom under Ubuntu. I'm not sure why that would be a system default MIME type, but I'd like to change it.
I've tried using:
Code: gksu assogiate
to modify my file type cache. Unfortunately, even as the SU, I can't modify the entry for this file type. The "Remove" button is inactivated for the entry. (See attachment.)
How can I get rid of this (obsolete?) file association? Alternatively, how can I make my new one (text/x-markdown) take precedence?
I have the cowon iAudio7 music player with vfat file system and increasingly running into permission problems when I try to delete files. Unsurprisingly I am now running out of space. I am figuring if I could somehow mount it onto a folder in my home partition I will have full permissions. The problem is the drives name which is exactly with space: So even if try to delete files in the terminal I don't know how to cd into:
Code: /media/I AUDIO7 note the space between I & AUDIO7.
Directories(-entries) are in a EXT2 file system managed in a singly linked list. Delete files in the directory causes Gaps or holes to appear in the linked list of the directory.How does a C-source code look like, which would reorganize this list and remove the gaps or Holes.
I am having some difficulty with a USB Flash and have somehow created a permanent icon in this folder that matches the origial mount name. The shape of the icon is the same as a CD ROM. I need the permission of "unknown" to delete it. How do I get rid of this folder? I'm Using Gnome with Nautilus.
I have an icon theme going, and when using 'gnome-terminal', the window of the terminal uses the icon from the theme. When using 'xfce4-terminal' however (which I prefer, given how I now run xfce), the window uses its own icon (that draws a large dollar sign in the middle of a black monitor) and simply ignores the terminal icon from the theme.
recently i made a bold move to slackware (13.1) i have set it out how i like (gdm, themes etc) but my xfce icon box does come up showing the icons i have chosen the rest look how i want but just not icon box, i add (always into usr/share...) i have tried editing the .theme files with the inherit= section but nope still nothing ,
if i move the icons to somewhere the pc wont use them nothing replaces them. any ideas as this an boot times are all have left to do for my "dream install"
is it possible to leave just xfce as the only desktop and delete gnome or would that disrupt things since gnome is the default? if so, what would be the command to delete gnome and leave a true xfce as the only desktop?
If you create a file on UNIX/linux with special chars, like touch "la*, you can't remove it with rm "la*. You have to use the inode number(you can if you add the before the name, I know, but you'd have to guess as a user that it was used in the file creation).
I checked the manpage for rm, but there's no metion of the inode number. Doing rm inodenumber doesn't work either.
I recently decided to install xfce-desktop as a fallback alternative whenever Gnome 3 has problems. Now I have the Thunar file manager opening up by default even when logged into Gnome (for example when using Alt-F2 and typing in a folder name, or when plugging in an iPod.) I've searched around for days but can't find any place to set a default file manager. The Default Applications dialogue doesn't include file manager, only web browser, video etc.)

We had seen some time ago, various tricks to remove the character MS-DOS text files on Linux. Here is a new trick to do this directly from the vim editor. to convert a file opened with vim in UNIX format, simply use the following command code...
