In every other e-mail program that I have encountered in my years upon this Earth, including previous version of Evolution, when you open a message, the message in the main displays stops being displayed in bold, so that you can see it has been opened and read. In my new version, 2.32.3, the message header stays bold, even once you have opened the message. In order to make it stop being bold, you have to manually "Mark As Read" in the context menu.
I cannot see any option in the preferences that needs to be switched on so that this (until now) default behaviour of marking read messages as Read automatically, can resume. A Google of this problem just brings up messages on other forums, asking the same question but getting no answer. Has anyone on LinuxQuestions come across this Evolution feature before? Is this an Evolution bug, or is there a way of having opened messages Marked as Read automatically, which virtually every other e-mail application does anyway?!
I'm trying to delete files on a USB disk. If I try using terminal using rm, because files are write only. I can't change this, even as root using chmod or unmount mount. When I use fdisk I still can't reformat, either as superuser or root. I get the following :
Disk /dev/sdh: 16.1 GB, 16064184320 bytes 7 heads, 37 sectors/track, 121140 cylinders Units = cylinders of 259 * 512 = 132608 bytes
Long time reader, first time poster. I've got, what has become to me, a brain bender. It seems ACL's are the best way to go, but I am not 100% sure. Each user should be able to create files and modify each others'files, but should not be able to delete any one elses files in a directory.chmod -1777?setfacl?
I have changed nothing about the configuration of my checkgmail except for the icons. And yet, whenever I click on the subject of an email, it gives me a 404 error. When I use the links (delete, spam, archive, mark read) it does what it is supposed to do, but it does not allow me to view the content of a message. Does anybody have any idea of what could be causing this strange behavior? Gnome. 10.04. x64.
I was getting the 404 error and so I ran update. Now I am getting the "Incorrect username" window and can't log in. Using the no_cookies option works, but with reduced functionality. The terminal shows the following:
I have 2 external hdd in wich I have all my files. yesterday, I have copied all the files from hdd2 to hdd1 and I want to eliminate duplicates so I used FSLint to find them,now I want to make a shell script to delete all the files/entries (read from the log file) that begin with.
I have a few ubuntu servers which have samba shares on the network and for the most part have had little trouble with them. Recently we purchased a few iMac's for one of our deptartments and, while we're able to access the shares, all the files on them are read-only and we are unable to delete/modify files using the iMacs. This is not an issue with any of our windows machines (W2K, WinXP, Vista).
I've been using checkgmail package on my f10 (x86_64) box for a while now without problems. But all of a sudden, I see a pop-up windowtating: incorrect username or password. No matter how many times I enter my usernamend password the window keeps coming back demanding for the same. My system is up to date and I've rebooted my system a few times, but the problem persists.
I have 2 external hdd in wich I have all my files.... yesterday, I have copied all the files from hdd2 to hdd1 and I want to eliminate duplicates so I used FSLint to find them, now, I have a txt file that looks like this:
Code: /media/My Book/!!!MIS DOCUMENTOS/Documentos/2 sep2003-jun2009 USB/!TESIS/TESIS/TESIS CVT LABVIEW Y CODEWARRIOR/LabVIEW85RuntimeEngineFull.exe /media/My Book/HDD_Toshiba/Borrable/Pen_Drive_4GB/Tesis/Super CD de la tesis/LabView/LabVIEW85RuntimeEngineFull.exe multiplied by millions of entries...
now I want to make a shell script to delete all the files/entries (read from the log file) that begin with:
/media/My Book/HDD_Toshiba/**** Since HDD_Toshiba is the folder in hdd1 (MyBook) that contains all the files from hdd2
I have a near 200 GB partition. Fat 32.I was copying some files into that and suddenly my computer shut down due to overheating .. am having this problem for some days ..Anyway .. After I restarted it I found I am not being able to any thing except copying for the drive .. Otherwise I dont have permission.I cannot even change the permission into 'Create and Delete' while its saying "Read only filesystem" ..When I restart the comp, everything seems okay .. but after a few seconds the problem arise .. it become inaccessible .. I simply cannot even creat a folder ..
For some reason randomly my task bar messes up for some reason. Im not sure if many other people have this. but ill provide a picture so you can see it. Some times its even worse, like i get a double account name and double of everything else.
I've been using BasKet Notepad for about two years now on a Dellbuntu Mini-9. I just installed Mint8 Xfce and finished installing all my preferred apps this morning, including Basket. Unfortunately, when I tried to import my archive from the old system (saved on a thumb), it fails to recognize it as an archive file. At first I thought it might be linked ot its apparent inability to recognize the thumb drive, so I transferred the file to the SSD, extracted it, etc. All the files are there, it seems, but the individual baskets are all saved as .html files. There doesn't seem to be any "archive" as such that I can import.
Now the weird thing is that I've imported the archive before, back into Basket on the dellbuntu version of 8.04, without any problem. What gives? This is my research. For my dissertation. While I'm heartened that it still exists, I am more than a little annoyed at the notion that I might have to cut and paste every damn basket into the system (which I've already done once when I tried to put the notes on my home desktop XP system. I am returning to the field in five weeks and really want these things accessible. Is there any help for this?
it usually happens when i use firefox (does not happen with other browsers like opera or chrome) to visit, for example, videos. where it should be pitch black, screwed up parts of the video or another multimedia program (such as second life) show up. it has happened on white colors as well. here are some shots. i did not take them using print screen since, strangely, print screen does not seem to capture this glitch. i am using ubuntu 10.10 on a 1 gb nvidia 9500gt.
I've been having trouble trying to install ubuntu (and mint linux too) - I have the same problem with either version.
It's an Acer T180 tower PC, when I come to install it'll go through the motions of setting up the drive, copying files and then downloading/installing language packs. Randomly though between copying files and downloading/installing language packs it will just sit there and freeze. Sometimes it will just freeze and stay on the same image, other times it will freeze and what's best described as a window blinds effect will go across the whole screen. Either way the PC stops responding.
I've tried multiple downloads of iso files (ubuntu and then mint) - running on usb and also running from cd and dvd - same issue each time. I've made sure that the username is lowercase too (just in case).
The other thing I've tried is removing the separate nvidia graphics card and using just the internal one (again an nvidia card). Ubuntu will prompt that there are restricted drivers available - doesn't matter whether I install them or not - it still freezes just the same.
I am using a Dell Inspiron Laptop 1464. I have Ubuntu 11.04 Installed, and every time I have the volume at MAX and especially when I'm listening to music that has like high bit-rate (342) or what ever, there is a glitch in the sound, it sounds like when a CD skips or when it is scratched. I tried installing all types of different mp3 encoders and still the same.
Also it is the same when I use Banshee or Rhythumbox.
While pretty, in a plaid way, my System Monitor screen is less than helpful. This started after I upgraded to 9.10 and applied more recent updates. From what I've read, the glitch is Radeon based. I have a Radeon 7000 card which itself has 32mb of ram, but I told my computer a couple years ago to think it had 128. I've tried the suggested short term fix in the linked thread (change the driver in /etc/X11/xorg.con to "vesa") but it didn't work.
I have two related requests: What can I try to solve the System Monitor glitch? How do I reset my settings back to knowing my video card's real capacity?
I upgraded the UNR from 10.04 (which worked ok) to 10.10. Now, if I log in with the UNR session I get a weird graphics glitch (see attached screenshots). The panels are transparent and all the icons are invisible, though drop-menus seem to work (see: Unity02.jpg). Also, the side panel is transparent and does not display any icons (see: Unity01.jpg)
My system: MSI s420 laptop video: radeon xpress 200M cpu: dualcore intel of some sort ram: 2 GB
I'm running 10.10. I'm trying to generate a set of labels for a new contacts list in evolution. Problem is I can't get glabels to merge the new contact list, even though it is selected as default in evolution. When I select Objects, Merge properties, and format "data from default evolution addressbook", it always imports the contacts list which was the original default, even though I have changed the default. I have reinstalled glabels, but problem remains. Seems like a simple issue, but its driving me mad.
I recently installed Ubuntu Karmic Koala onto my old IBM Thinkpad (I THINK it's an X23 model, but don't quote me on it). The only reason I went with the older, obsolete version is, honestly, it's the only one that will run on it. That said, I love it and see no reason to go back to Lose-dows full time (I'll still get a Windows machine in order to learn the inner workings of it... thinking of going back to school for a tech job, so the knowledge will do me good).When I bring up various windows (most disturbingly, my system monitor), I get a bizarre glitch. It's hard to describe, so I'll give a screencap.
When KDE starts up a new session, it restores the progs that were running at log out last time.I am running skype and that prog is brought back but I suspect that KDE is restarting the "bin" (skype-bin) rather than the startup script (skpe) which contains the necessary "LD_PRELOAD" stuff essential to get the webcam operating OK.I can't find where KDE stores the session info, any ideas?
I have an Eee PC 1005 dual-booting Windows 7 and openSUSE 11.3. Everything is nice and polished except for one thing.The first tweak I made to the system was the kernel parameter "acpi=Linux" which made the Fn keys work. Then I installed eee-control from the openSUSE Build Service, which worked very well (I was getting a bit frustrated; the source would build and install, but eee-control-daemon would immediately die. Anyway.).
My problem is that when I press the Fn-F2 combo to disable wifi, all mention of wifi completely vanishes from the tray applet. Even when I press Fn-F2 again to turn the radio back on (and the light does cycle like it does in Windows), it is gone. I need to reboot with the radio on, then it works perfectly again, until I press Fn-F2 again.
I just encountered an odd network stack glitch and wondered if anyone has seen this before, or knows what could cause it. When I connect to services on localhost (127.0.0.1) if there is a process listening, it works OK as expected. there is no process listening, I should get a NAK and see a connection refused message.With this glitch, that was not happening. And this was with 127.0.0.1 to 127.0.0.1. Nothing was listening, but the SYN attempts were all that were happening. If there was something listening that worked OK. Connections to other hosts worked as expected.
I'd have said SNAFU, but the truth is that I really don't recall this mess being "normal" in Slackware since v7. This kind of mess is what I expect from Ubuntu, not Slack. Here's what happened. I was running Slackware-Current 12/10/10 and wanted to move up to Current 1/10/11. I read and followed the UPGRADE.txt including running "telinit 1". The system had 2 working kernels menued in Lilo, a custom 18.104.22.168 symlinked to "/boot/vmlinuz", and a custom 2.6.36 fully declared in lilo.conf and labelled Current.
The "upgradepkg --install-new" installed a "new" kernel which would only have required a simple deletion, but somehow and for some silly reason my lilo.conf was overwritten and lilo run so that when I selected "Current" instead of my nice 2.6.36, long story short, I got a badly working kernel where my keyboard didn't work.
Why would "upgradepckg --install-new" install an older kernel, and more importantly, instead of merely as an added option, override and ruin my existing, working lilo? Slax is overhauling to add pacman and I see some people even here leaning toward more automated package management in Slackware. What gives? Is Slackware headed down this path? Please, Joe, just tell me it ain't so.
