I keep getting messages that I need to update fuse gnome-screensaver and gnutils security updates. However, everytime I try to update either by YAST Online Update or the toolbar icon, it fails to update. The message is that can't remove fuse, gnutls, etc.
I have OpenSUSE 11.2 KDE edition. I download TrueCrypt 6.3a from TrueCrypt - Free Open-Source On-The-Fly Disk Encryption Software for Windows 7/Vista/XP, Mac OS X and Linux - Downloads (openSUSE - x64 (64bit) .rpm). The first problem that I encountered was dependencies; first I installed fuse using YaST then I installed the rpm file. but when I try open a volume, TrueCrypt gave me Code: fuse: device not found, try 'modprobe fuse' first. So I issue in Terminal that command but I see this error:
Code: FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/220.127.116.11-0.1-desktop/modules.dep: No such file or directory I googled and search the forum but didn't found anything. So I thinkg only I have this problem.
The repository [URL] is not currently (or no longer) valid. The path still exists up to the "Contrib" level, however, there are no files or subdirectories under it. There are also two siblings at the "Contrib" directory level ("Live" and "Update:") and there are no files under them either other than a single subdirectory called "Test" under "Update:". Does anyone know if the updates that used to be available in this repository have moved and, if so, where to? If the repository is no longer required and there is no replacement, I'll simply remove it. I have also noticed issues for several months where the updater applet will go into an "updating" state and never return from it.
There's an OSS screensaver on windows that I love called PixelCity (links:blog post, github). it's pretty cool. and it runs fine on my Ubuntu (Karmic 9.10) with wine.Is there a way I can tell the gnome-screensaver about it so I can use it as one of my screensavers? I'm still fairly new to Gnome and the whole "screensavers as themes" thing is still confusing me.I've found my themesdir and tried to create a .desktop file for it, but obviously I've gotten something wrong as it just doesn't show when I open the screensaver prefs dialog, no error, no message, it's just not there.
Installing the xscreensaver packages added the extra screensavers I was missing, and I'm a pixelcity away from perfection..Of course the perfect solution would be if someone ported the screensaver natively to linux, which shouldn't be too hard as the source is open, it already runs on openGL and tries to confine most windows stuff to a single file. But I don't know C++ or 3D code or win/linux internals so I wouldn't know where to start..
While upgrading from Suse 11.3 to 11.4 using zypper my computer froze. I allowed it to sit for 7 hrs before regrettably restarting the machine. I was later able to install 11.4 successfully, however it seems now yast2 is broken.
Whenever I try to use the sofware management tool the following error appears:
Interesting enough zypper gives the following following text when I use the ls command
I thought the two files were not linked so I performed a #ln, but that yeilded this error.
ln: failed to create symbolic link `libzypp.so.706': File exists
I think the two issues are related, but I'm pretty stuck at this point. I've read about people having similar issues with yast2 after distro updates, but their issues seems slightly different as those solution do not work for me.
When I resume my computer from suspend (or after it goes to screensaver), I am sometimes unable to log back in. The message on the lock box simply says 'Timeout has expired' or something to that effect.There is no way to get around that, all I can do is cold-boot loosing all the work I was doing (unsaved).I do not have desktop effects enabled.Running Gnome 2.32, OpenSUSE 114., n550 proc and x3150 Intel GMA
I have an Atheros ar5007eg wireless card, and I haven't had problems with this card in GNOME. However, when I made the switch to KDE recently, I can't connect to any wireless networks. A wired connection works fine (that's how I'm writing this), but when I try to connect to any wireless network, it hangs at Acquiring IP Address, then asks me for my WEP key again, I enter it, and the process starts over. I tried using WICD, but I'm not sure if I set it up properly.
Recently upgraded to F12. K3B can't burn DVDs. Drive was working fine in Fedora 10 before the upgrade, and I've applied all updates.
Here is the output when run from console:

I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my Dell GX240. I have severe difficulty logging in. If I try to login on GNOME or GNOME fail safe mode , I just cant get in . I keep getting the login screen again. I am able to go into terminal mode. Sometimes I have to try upto 100 times to login in GNOME or failsafe mode. Once I am in everything is fine. Is there a way to do some troublshooting? Also transfer to USB sticks is very slow - sometimes as slow as 1MB per min. Is this normal with Ubuntu?
So, it is my understanding that Ubuntu's automatic updates do not install ANY updates that are not "important security updates." For example, it did not upgrade me to Firefox 4 automatically; I had to do it myself (Don't all new browser versions usually contain new security features/patches? Oh well...That is a separate question entirely).
ANYWAY, is there some way to get the latest stable versions of all of my open-source software automatically (or at least all at once, on command), instead of just security updates? It seems silly to have to install new versions for every program manually.
Also, related/side question: Now that I have installed Firefox 4 myself (via apt-get by adding the mozilla-stable PPA), will I stop getting security updates for Firefox through the standard Ubuntu update manager?
Actually, a really thorough explanation of the whole automatic update system (or a link to one) would be great too.
I'm running Fedora 12 and the last couple days I have noticed my screensaver will not start anymore. I did a yum update a few days ago don't know if there is a connection between the two. I've just started to Google the topic. Found different culprits ranging from dbus problems to buggy code.
I'm using a x86_64 PC running kernel 18.104.22.168-170.fc12.x86_64. My Gnome version is 2.28.2. The Gnome-screensaver version is 2.28.3-1.fc12.x86_64.
I wanted to get a screensaver as my background so I installed xscreensaver didn't work out to the way I wanted to so I removed it apt-get remove xscreensaver then it asked for some other packages to be removed so I did apt-get autoremove xscreensaver was still there working instead of gnome-screensaver so I did a command search to find folders of xscreensaver and remove them whereis xscreensaver and it did remove them, but gnome-screensaver still doesn't start up.
I've tried this command gnome-Message: screensaver-command --activate but I get this error: Message: Screensaver is not running!
I've tried googling for a way to start gnome-screensaver in terminal but no joy, anyone know how to get this to start.
The Gnome Screensaver preferences window is freezing my desktop. I went into synaptic and tried to remove it (to use xscreensaver instead). But synaptic, in removing gnome-screensaver package, wanted to ADD a bunch of packages, lots of KDE stuff (which I don't want). Is there any way around this? If not, is there a way to reset the gnome-screensaver config file (whatever it is) so that it doesn't freeze on startup? This problem arose after I selected a particular screensaver in the gui window.
Although xscreensaver is much better and liked by many users, the Ubuntu devs replaced it with gnome-screensaver simply cause -
1) It's integrates better with the gnome-desktop. 2) It follows release cycles of Gnome.
Since the devs and admins won't listen, we users have to clean their **** up and this is the howto - In Ubuntu, the gnome-screensaver is running; but xscreensaver is better, so we need to replace it. The gnome-screensaver runs as a daemon...removing this gnome-screensaver package will remove this executable also -

At some point, I suspect since the last kernel upgrade, I've begun experiencing a problem when the screen locks: I tap a key on the keyboard and the monitors wake up, but I get no "unlock" dialog. I can usually Ctrl-Alt-F1, login and gracefully reboot the system, but sometimes I have to hit hard reset. For now I've disabled the screensaver in "System -> Preferences -> screensaver" (I assume that'll stop the problem), but that's not an optimal solution.
I have created a PyGTK app (a binary clock) that I would like to turn into a screensaver. I added the .desktop file to /usr/share/applications/screensavers/ but all I get when I select it is a black screen. On the GnomeScreensaver FAQ (here) it says to use a gsthemewindow as the toplevel window, but the libraries given are in C. Is there any way to:Import this C library to get access to this toplevel window, Convert this GTK+ C library to PyGTK, or use a pygtk app as a screensaver in some other way?
I am trying to get the KDE Media screen saver working in GNOME. Is there a way to use kde's screensaver program in gnome on startup, instead of gnome's screen saver program? Basically, I am trying to disable gnome's screensaver, and load kde's program in its place at gnome startup.
I changed my password in the last few days using passwd. I still haven't gotten used to typing the new one, and entered the old one by accident to unlock the screen saver. I've been able to do this a bunch of times, and I'm quite sure it will still take the old password.This seems to be a serious security issue, and I'm not sure where I should raise this. I hope this is the right forum.I am using Ubuntu 10.04.$ uname -aLinux thunder 2.6.32-25-generic #44-Ubuntu SMP Fri Sep 17 20:26:08 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux$ gnome-screensaver --versiongnome-screensaver 2.30.0
I just noticed the iFuse project, which aims to create fuse support for iPod Touch and iPhone. I also found an openSuse repository from which to download it, but I'm not too sure if I know how to use it. Any hints on how to test fuse mounts?
I was wondering how to create a GNOME screensaver from a video file? I don't really care what video format the screensaver creator supports because I can always transcode the video with ffmpeg or mencoder. I also, don't care if the creator uses proprietary formats such as mpeg, mpeg4, avi, etc. I do however want the program to create an installable screensaver.
I have gnome-screensaver on fedora 10 on an intel mac (laptop) under power, screensaver works fine. On battery, the screensaver never activates, it will eventually go to sleep though. I'm kind of new to fedora.
USB driver bug exposed as "Linux plug&pwn" or this link.Two choices [GNOME, Fedora 14]:
1 - use the gnome-screensaver
2 - use the "switch user" function [gnome menu -> log out -> switch user]
So the question is: which one is the safer method to lock the screen, if a user leaves the pc? Is it true, that using the  method is safer?Why do i think this? - The gnome-screensaver is just a "process", it could be killed. But if you use the log out/switch user function, it's "something else". Using the "switch user" function, could there be a problem like with the gnome-screensaver? Could someone "kill a process" and presto...the lock is removed?Could the GDM [??] "login windows process" [e.g.: a picture of it] get killed and the "lock" gets owned?
p.s.: if the  method is safer, then how can i put an icon on the GNOME panel, to launch the "switch user" action by 1 click?
