Ubuntu :: Desktop Drapes Won't Start Automatically On Login

Jan 21, 2010

I have it configured in the application settings to do that, and I've checked the Startup Applications and indeed it is listed there.However when I start up the icon doesn't appear in the tray and my wallpaper won't change every 10 minutes like it's supposed to until I actually go to System > Preferences and run Desktop Drapes manually.

Ubuntu :: Desktop Drapes Won't Run In 11.04

May 2, 2011

Except for the drive mount point issue (can't type custom mount points) I installed 11.04 [64-bit] without issue. Everything seems to work except Desktop Drapes. It seems to have installed OK...it shows up in System|Preferences. But when you click on it nothing happens. Launching drapes from a terminal window yields:

brian@Main:~$ drapes
Exception in Gtk# callback delegate
Note: Applications can use GLib.ExceptionManager.UnhandledException to handle the exception.
System.DllNotFoundException: libX11.so

[code]....

Fedora Installation :: Apache Web Server Does Not Start Automatically Unless Login

Feb 20, 2009

I have a problem with running Apache web server. I think my problem is either I can not get httpd to load automatically or it's being blocked from external unless I'm logged in, don't know which. Or, I'm completely off base. Either way, being logged in solves the problem. Now I just need to fix it. This is a brand new server running latest apache and fedora 10 (all fully patched). Loaded from source to all default (non RPM directories - apache is /usr/local/apache2/... )

I modified the existing /etc/init.d/httpd script and had it point to the /usr/local/apache2 areas.I even did a chkconfig --add httpd and show it is on for run levels 2345.The problem is that when I reboot the server httpd does not load because I can not access the website.However, the minute I login to the server as a user (non-root) it automatically loads httpd and the website works.Then, when I logout, everything is inaccessible again. I even tried to put the commands in the /etc/rc.local script (or wherever it is).Same thing happens.I know this is a simple fix. Just don't know what it is. Is it related to SElinux? However, wouldn't SElinux create access problems regardless of being logged in or not? Once I'm logged in, everything automatically fixes itself (either it's a service load or a rights filter fix).

Remember, everything works perfectly as long as I'm logged in to the server (even as a non-root user). Just the act of logging in makes the web server accessible from to the rest of the world. However, when I logout, the web server is inaccessible.

General :: Triggered Process - Start Automatically When The Desktop Finishes Loading

Jun 29, 2011

I am running Debian Squeeze with icewm as desktop environment. I am trying to start feh automatically when the desktop finishes loading. I have tried crontab -e with @reboot /usr/bin/feh /home/user/photos/ & I think that the best way to do this would be to monitor for the x-session-manag process. The reason I think this would be a good solution is that I killed x-session-manag and it killed my x-session and straight to command line interface.

Ubuntu :: After Update Of 10.04 - Can't Start Gnome Desktop After Login

Jun 10, 2010

I use ubuntu 10.04 in VirtualBox (upgrated from 09.10), host os is Win7.

3-4 days ago update of ubuntu required restart of Ubuntu (linux kernel was updated).

After 3 days (i.e. yesterday) I restarted the system. I found that flashlib in Chrome became to work unstable, some artefact appeared, and only scrolling down-up in browser allowed to update view of screen. I run update manager. It showed ~88Mb of updates for last 3 days.

After download of updates, apply changes was failed! I faced this first time (!). I remember message like "can not synchronize file /usr/share/..." or something like that.

I restarted ubuntu again. Now I could not login. System hangs after login. No Gnome menu appears etc.

I tried to fix issue using dpkg. I found that some lib (ure) related to OpenOffice was not assigned (version XXX required, but bersion XXXY found). dpkg offered to solve this by some combination. I did so. Then I run dpkg update, and no errors appeared.

Also I updated VirtualBox to version 3.2.4, updated VirualBox Additions via console terminal in ubuntu.

But still I can't fix problem with gdm/gnome.

dpkg-reconfigure gnome-*** did not help for me.

I tried to check logs, but I have not found something "interesting".

At the moment terminal is the only way to login.

General :: Auto Start Bash Script After Login To Desktop?

Mar 26, 2010

I am using Fedora and trying to auto run a script soon after the unit boots to desktop. I found many suggestions and finally decided to use the Sessions->Startup Programs option (under System->Preferences->Personal->Sessions menu). I added my script in the Startup Programs with the command 'sh myscript.sh'. Now I have two questions here:1. When I use the command 'gnome-terminal -e myscript.sh', I get 'There was an error creating the child process for this terminal' message after logging into the desktop. Can any one tell if I am missing something here?2. Even if I use sh instead of gnome-terminal, I still want to see the script executing. In other words, my script has certain echo statements indicating the flow of the script. But I don't see any shell opening up with these echo statements showing up, after the unit boots to desktop. But the script was still executed with no problem

Ubuntu :: AWN Doesn't Automatically Start?

Apr 30, 2010

I upgraded to 10.04 and my AWN dock won't automatically start even though the 'box' is tic'd and it's showing in the Startup Applications. I did lose all of my configurations as well after upgrading and had to reinstall everything on the dock.

Also, there are little numbers on the launchers like for Trash and Email that tell me how many items are in there. The Trash was easy to remove the numbers by right clicking and choosing the Preferences option. There was a place to disable that but there isn't one for the Email and those little numbers look well.

Ubuntu :: Login Through Remote Desktop And Show Same Desktop

The problem is that if I logon from computer 1 and open some programs, I don't see these programs when I logon from computer 2.I logon with the same user, so I find this strange. Is there some setting I have missed to be able to see the same from any computer (logon through remote desktop).

Ubuntu :: Alternative To VNC Doesn't Start Automatically?

Feb 3, 2010

I'm using vnc to connect to my ubuntu box from my windows box however I don't like the way it works.1) It doesn't start automatically. I have to be logged into my username before I can connect to my box.2) It takes control of the screen on my ubuntu box which isn't what I really want to happen. I'm used to connecting via rdp in windows where I connect to the other computer and if you looked at the other screen you wouldn't even know I am logged on.This is handy if someone else is using the pc plus I just don't like everything that I am doing to appear on a computer screen that I can't see. I find it kind of freaky.

Ubuntu :: Mount Partition Automatically At Start?

Mar 28, 2010

recently i was trying to mount my partition automatically at start up ...so i gone through some tutorials on the net nd made some changes in /etc/fstab file (i made a back up before making any changes). when i was changing permissions of folder in which i tried to mount my all partitions i got my system screwed up.then it was showing following error at start up and GUI was not turning up. "could not update ICEauthority file " also my sudo was not working so first i restored original fstab file through recovery console then i googled out about above errors. I found some solution now my system is working but showing strange behaviour like:

> ubuntu is not detecting any of my hdd partition

> disk utility is not working (showing no error)

>fdisk -l shows nothing

> no new software is getting installed via ubuntu software center (shows no error when clicking on install but nothing turns up)

>i cannot restart or shutdown my system from GNOME it only logs off my session (although through terminal its working)

>no media player showing sound controls enabled

>gnome not showing ethernet or sound volume icon in upper panel (although net is working)

>users and groups from system->administration menu is not working (error:cannot load configuration)

i think most of the administrative tasks are not working.........i googled out but found nothing satisfactory..i dont want to reinstall it, coz i m not very experienced with linux n it took about a whole month to customize my ubuntu 9.10 on my college internet...

Ubuntu :: Make A Command Run Automatically On Start-up?

May 27, 2011

I have a lenovo thinkpad laptop, and it has both touch-pad (standard build in laptop mouse) and touch-point (in the middle of the keyboard) mouse options.

I almost invariably use the touch-point and the accompanied scroller and key-buttons.

HOWEVER, for the scroller to be recognized by ubuntu you must run two scripts as follows:

xinput set-int-prop "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint" "Evdev Wheel Emulation" 8 1
xinput set-int-prop "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint" "Evdev Wheel Emulation Button" 8 2

Restarting the computer resets these settings, and you must re-run them each time you start up ubuntu.

I am looking to write a script that will automatically run itself (which will execute the above commands), or to permanently change these settings so that it will not be necessary to run them at each start-up.

Thanks in advance, and if there is another thread on these forums that I should move to (or even just another thread that would be a more likely place to get a response). This seemed like the best forum (one which can certainly hold this post without violating any rules), but I may have missed something.

Ubuntu :: KDE/Plasma Does Not Start Automatically Anymore

Jun 13, 2011

After upgrading my husband's laptop to 11.04, KDE does not start automatically anymore. kdm (the log-in screen) appears. I select "KDE Plasma Desktop". But instead a kind of terminal appears in the top left corner. This console does not have window decoration. When I type startkde into it, KDE starts completely normally.

The same happens with a newly created user, so a misconfiguration in .kde cannot be the cause.

/usr/share/xsessions/kde-plasma.desktop is correct:

Code:

The metapackage kubuntu-desktop is installed.

I have tried reconfiguring and reinstalling various packages that I or others thought might be responsible:

Code:

GNOME was installed on the same computer, too, and caused some problems after the upgrade (instead of KDE being the default session, it was Unity, but no menus or control bars loaded). After trying all the things mentioned above, I uninstalled all GNOME/Unity-related packages to rule out they were causing the problem (according to that list: [url]). It did not help, even though for two packages messages appeared that sounded like they might make a difference:

Code:

I compared with

Code:

With my other two computers that work fine after the upgrade to 11.04, they also use startkde and kwin.
