Feb 16, 2011

switching to Fluxbox. I've already discoveded how to configure menus and hotkeys but still not sure about appearance configuration. In the Fluxbox menu I chose nice-looking style and want to customize it - background color, font, font color, size of the panel (I want it widescreen and make it bigger in height), color of this panel, amount of desktops (2 instead of 4), etc... Where do I customize all this?

Ubuntu :: Global Hotkeys On Audacious Don't Respond Unless Open Preferences, Open Settings For Global Hotkeys, Then Close Down The Settings?

Feb 19, 2010

I have two major issues, and one minor one, after I started using Ubuntu, I tried searching the forum for them, but couldn't find anything relevant to my problems.First issue: Screenshots and the cursor.This is probably a very easily fixed issue, but none-the-less, I can not figure it out.How do I NOT include the cursor in my screenshots on Ubuntu 9.10?What I do is, I press the Prt Scrn button, and my cursor is always there in the image, and I don't want that.Second is pidgin.I love it, but every time I boot it up, my friendly name is reverted back to firefoxfag.I think it has something to do with me using gmail for msn, but I'm not sure...Also, as a last very small issue, the global hotkeys on audacious don't respond unless i open preferences, open settings for global hotkeys, then close down the settings..

General :: Gnome-panel In Fluxbox - Performance Degrades?

Nov 28, 2010

I'm toying around with fluxbox and like it's speed and simplicity. However, the gnome-panel is great and I would like to use it in fluxbox. Specifically, I like its system monitor, typing break, gnubiff and clock (which world clock support). My question is: if I'm running the gnome-panel in fluxbox will this degrade performance, for example, since the gnome-panel needs to load all the gnome related libraries etc.? One of the main reasons I'm looking into fluxbox is for speed so I don't want to lose that just because of the panel.

General :: Netbook Keyboard No Longer Working On Archlinux/fluxbox/ROX?

Aug 12, 2010

I installed Archlinux yesterday on my Aspire One netbook. I installed fluxbux window manager with the ROX file manager/desktop manager.Everything was working fine until I was walking through a guide to set up the Fn keysto use the keyboard hotkeys for changing the brightness and audio settings here: [URL]I used xmodmap to set additional short cuts. Every since, I can't use my keyboard when I run 'startx'. My laptop touch mouse is working but I noticed the cursor speed has slowed down drasticly since I input the above changes.

I tried putting in 'setxkbmap no' in my ~/.xinitrc, 'no' was the language which is set up in my /etc/X11/xorg.conf and was working before. I also reverted to a back-up of my xorg.conf which I had saved a few hours before, which also didn't work.What could the problem could be here? How can I ensure my keyboard is being properly initialise when I start up Xorg/fluxbox?

General :: Find All Menus Available For GUI?

Apr 21, 2011

I was wondering if there was a bash command or something that would probe an application to maybe list the GUI menus (arguments) you could input to the application. This would also be interesting for CLI.

Let's say there was not a manual page for a bash command (options) and you wanted a "tire on the road" proof and not just recall something that is assumed to be correct or you did not want to click here there and e very where to see if a menu opened for a GUI?

I assume that this process could also work on the source code by searching for a input type of command.

This is just something I though would be a helpful hack type of thing and I'm not involved in a project for this type of functionallity. It's a shame that GUIs dont always list what they are capable of.

OpenSUSE :: KDE 4.x: Global Hotkeys For All Users - How To Do It

Jul 23, 2011

Using KDE 4.6+, I'd like to have a predefined set of hotkeys for all users of the computer. E.g. the "XF86Calculator"-key starting "kcalc" as a default for all users without everyone being forced to deal with the absolutely messy and un-intuitive KDE hotkey configuration. Is there a way to do that? Preferably something like an "*.desktop"-file in /usr/local in order to be consistent with the rest of the system.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Won't Open With Hotkeys?

Jun 11, 2011

I'm using Gnome on 10.10 and use hotkeys (shortcut keys) for opening just about everything. When I go to System>Administration>Preferences>Keyboard Shortcuts and enter a shortcut to open Nautilus (file manager) it doesn't work.

The shortcut key I have set for this (Mod4-m or Windows key+m) works fine if I replace 'nautilus' with 'thunar' or 'pcmanfm' as the command, but when I use 'nautilus', nothing. The same shortcut key works fine to open Nautilus in Xfce. If I type 'nautilus' in a terminal in Gnome up she pops. I can stick just about any other command in there and WinKey+M will work fine.

My regular setup is with Xfce where everything is dandy but I am fairly curious as to what Gnome has against Nautilus in the shortcut key menu.

General :: Lost Menus In Root Profile?

Jul 12, 2011

I've been handed the role of looking after my company ftp server which is running redhat. I've logged on as root & have somehow lost all of the menu items from the grey toolbar. All i now have on the desktop are the disk & partition icons. I haven't changed / added anything, just logged on to the box. The only way i can log out or reboot is to press in the server power button which cannot be right ? Is there anyway of making the menu options visible so that i can at least familiarise myself with the O/S ?
