Ubuntu :: Compiz Rotating Sphere Option Has Disappeared
May 10, 2010
I've done a new 10.04 installation and downloaded CCSM but I can't find the option to turn the rotating cube (all options present and correct) into a rotating sphere.Have I just forgotten to download some additional plugins or similar?
got a problem with my compiz sphere,I got prettymuch everything running well in compiz,I've been tweaking around with it, got my cylinder to work,for some reason when I go into sphere mode it just shows my the cylinder.What am I doing wrong? O.o
Ubuntu 10.04 with Gnome.When running compiz sphere the bottom half of my desktop wall paper is missing.In cube and cylinder its fine.I also cant work out how to have different wallpaper on my desktops.In Ubuntu can i run a a switcher between KDE and Gnome, back some years ago Mandrake offered this.
right now am posting this from ubuntu safe mode, when i login normally what i get is just a plain space without desktop alt+f2 also not working there, only thing i can do from there is ctrl+alt+del and a window came without borders and i can restart or shutdown pc.
i had installed compiz configuration window and tried to enable cube desktop and it showed some conflict with other plugins and i had pressed disable this plugin and all tick mark in that configuration window gone after that this problem occurred
I installed kde and xfce to try them out (explained further in my other threads - almost a prequel to this if you like) and they were fine and dandy. Decided I wanted to lose xfce and did that (as explained in said previous threads) via synaptics.However, not only did it get rid of xubuntu, it got rid of the option to loggin on kubuntu as well (which I didn't want to do - I decided I wanted to keep kubuntu). I'm pretty sure that kde is still here on my computer because when I boot my computer with ubuntu, I get the kubuntu loading screen with blue background. I want to be able to log in with kde but I don't have the option at loggin.
I could effortlessly set my output in Sound Preferences to be Analog 5.1. Now I just discovered that this option has disappeared, for no apparent reason. I haven't been messing around with any settings, other than installing updates as they've been rolled out. Would be nice to have 5.1 surround back as an option.
I blew my UI (Unity) and dont know how to get it back. I wanted to set my Desktop cube using Compiz and selected OpenGL, but this blew my whole UI away and I cannot control anything anymore. From the empty screen I opened the application console using crtl + F2 There, a Login shows up but I do not know how to login (yeah LOLing here too). Username and my Password didnt make it. I could also not setup any new root password there. What data is needed here? Root, Username? Ubuntu 11.04 ubuntu ubuntu Login:
I used OpenSUSE today and in one of the options for Rotate Cube (in compiz) was something that let me adjust to what angle I could allow the cube to go up and down. If I set it to 360 degrees, I was able to rotate the cube in any which direction I pleased. Can I do this on Ubuntu?
In 9.10 I had compiz turned on, and had enabled the widget layer so I could hide the top & bottom panels (pressing F9 displays the widget layer).However I don't see an option to turn on the widget layer in the Compiz settings in 10.01?
In the Compiz Fusion Desktop Wall plugin settings, I can normally find a "Non Sliding Windows" option (Or at least, I've been able to in recent installs of Ubuntu). However, in the default installation of Compiz that comes with OpenSUSE 11.2, I don't have that option. I double checked to make sure I wasn't losing my mind, and on my Ubuntu 10.4 laptop it IS present (In CCSM under the Desktop Wall Plugin's "Viewport Switching" tab). I even went so far as to check to see if it's in the gconf database, and it's not on Suse, but is on Ubuntu. Installing the compiz extras package did not help. I even tried putting the key into the gconf database on Suse, but of course it didn't work.
The only thing I noticed is that Suse appears to be using an older version of Compiz (Suse: compiz 0.7.8; Ubuntu: compiz 0.8.4). Being a fairly experienced linux user (however being new to Suse itself), I'd like to check if there is a simpler solution than compiling from scratch. Anyone ever run across this/solved this already? The final goal is to make my desktop wallpaper and gnome panels static when viewport sliding.
I wonder why the "Do Nothing" option when closing the laptop lid has disappeared from Ubuntu v10.We use Ubuntu for a network of netbooks for different artworks and have relied on this feature to keep our screens alive (when running a vga data projector), in tight spaces that don't allow for the netbook lids to be open.
I used to have the options "Add to Desktop" and "Add to Panel" when I right clicked on any icon in my KDE launcher menu. Now I only have "Add to Favorites".Ubuntu 11.04 Linux alienware 2.6.38-8-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:24 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux KDE: 4.6.2 (4.6.2)
In Ubuntu 10.04, there is no "Show Desktop" option in Compiz. This option was in 9.10, and I want it back! How can I enable it again? I assume there is a way, because Compiz developers sometimes get a bit cooky and make certain options disappear or be impossible to disable (genie affect patent, animations cannot be disabled in 9.10). How can I reenable the Show Desktop option?
From what I understand, it is possible to do via editing xorg.config. As my screen is currently rotated to portrait I want the graphics tablet to rotate accordingly. I am novice with coding, so please keep it simple.
I recently installed UBuntu 11.04 and dual booting it with WIndows 7, I really like linux and considering removing W7 and only have Ubuntu But the problem is I can only connect when using an ethernet cable, when it comes to wirelesss, I type my password, yet a ring keep rotating and it never connects. My laptop is HP-G62
I have been using Debian 8 with XFCE for the past 9 months.
Recently I had a simple job of going through a bunch of receipts (several hundred) and rotating them so that they were all portrait. Easy you may say? Linux fails dramatically.
My only requirements are a visual tool where I can see the image and then a button or even better a keyboard shortcut so I can rotate clockwise/anti-clockwise and move onto the next.
Here are my attempts at this:
ATTEMPT 01 - GIMP
GIMP works but you have to load it up everytime, and the save as feature tries to push XCF format onto you. I just want to overwrite it.
ATTEMPT 02 - GTHUMB
GThumb works as well, but its horribly slow, pops up an annoying image distortion prompt everytime you do it, and it moves the image you've just rotated to the end of the filmstrip and takes you there with it. Unworkable in reality.
ATTEMPT 03 - Nautilus
Nautilus simply fails altogether with a GTK error in the background.
ATTEMPT 04 - Ristretto
This is the default viewer with Debian 8 and it works. Or so I thought. When you rotate in Ristretto it just rotates it within the software and doesn't persist it within the image. So I went off and did 50 of them, thought I had and when I went to view them in other software they were still landscape. Incredibly frustrating.
ATTEMPT 05 - Windows 7 - Standard Image Viewer
This just works. I click one button, rotate left/right and then click next and it's saved. Ristretto could do this if it actually persisted the changes but it doesn't. So I find myself doing this job in a Windows 7 Virtual Machine because Linux just simply doesn't provide a working tool for me.
Any software that does the above simple task well in Linux?
I would like to set up tcpdump to rotate log file every 1 hour and retain files for the lat 14 days but I don't think any combination of -C and -W would allow me to do that (Atleast I haven't been able to figure it out), so I am trying to rotate the files every X number of MB and retain the last 20 files. This seems to be fairly simple with the '-C X -W 20' option but I am having some trouble in customizing the names of the log files. I have tried '-w capture-$(date +%Y-%M-%d-%H:%M-)' thinking that each file would start with the current date and time but all files are using the date and time when the capture was started so the only difference is the number at the end (which is done by -W). if I can customize the names of the file so that it has the date and time when the capture in started. In fact if I can do that, I dont need the numbers that '-W' appends at the end but I dont know how to get rid of them.
I've installed squid 2.7 stable9 in centos 5.4 x32 bit. I've installed and configured it successfully, its working fine. I want to clear few doubts, for that your kind help is needed. Parallely, I've configured another server using binary rpms with same squid version (2.7 stable9). I found that it creates a /etc/logrotate.d/squid for rotating log files (access.log, cache.log, store.log). Which is properly rotating log files using compress, dateext and size options (i manually added the size option).
But after compiling and installing from source code, its automatically not created. I want to rotate the log files in the same way as it is doing when i install using binary rpms. Below logfile_rotate entry is present in my squid.conf file (in source code installation scenario) logfile_rotate 10 Below logfile_rotate entry is present in my squid.conf file which is commented (in binary rpm installation scenario) #logfile_rotate 10 I want to rotate the log files by size (as I've more than 200 users, these logfiles size increasing very fast, ie. approx 80 MB per hour), with compress and dateext option.
