Ubuntu :: Key Bindings Suddenly Changed In Emacs?

Feb 22, 2010

I turn on my laptop running 64-bit karmic (if that helps anyone), open GNU Emacs 23.1.1 with the org files I've been working on, and for some reason it is not recognising standard key bindings, for the first time ever, with no reason I can conceive. What does "M-kp-enter is undefined" mean when it seemed well defined not long before? It seems using Esc-enter still works.. can anyone suggest if there are any config files I might need to edit, or what else could have gone wrong?

Debian :: Some Of The Icons On The Desktop Changed And All Of The Icons In The Drop Down Menu On The Bar At The Top Of The Screen Also Changed?

Jun 19, 2010

I recently installed virtual box on debian and after it had finished my terminal informed me that I could remove some "unnecessary" software by use of sudo apt-get autoremove. When I did this, some of the icons on the desktop changed and all of the icons in the drop down menu on the bar at the top of the screen also changed to ordinary folder symbols. The theme that I was using also went away. I restarted the computer and it booted back into a shell prompt with no GUI. I tried to get back to the GUI using alt+f7 but it didn't seem to exist

Ubuntu :: Changed These BIOS Settings But Now Won't Boot?

Oct 16, 2010

Long story short, I changed these BIOS settings (and changed them back), but now Ubuntu won't boot: SATA RAID/AHCI Mode: from Disabled to AHCI

Onboard SATA/IDE Ctlr Mode: from IDE to AHCIThe last thing it says is "Init: ureadahead-other main process (nnn) terminated with status 4". Booting off an Ubuntu CD and entering Rescue mode gets me to a shell; the file systems are still there, but Reward for first solution (other than reload): $10 Starbucks card!

Ubuntu :: Desktop Suddenly Shows All Home Folders?

Sep 8, 2010

I have never seen anything like this before. Starting up today my usually completely free of clutter desktop is showing all of my home directory folders!If I delete folders from the desktop, they are also deleted from my home directory. If I create a new home directory folder, it also appears on my desktop. In effect my desktop has become my home directory and I don't like it.

Ubuntu :: Desktop Suddenly Identical To Places - Home Folder

Jun 7, 2010

Suddenly, my "Places --> Desktop" folder is identical to my "Places --> Home Folder". This happened by accident somehow, and the folders and files in my Home Folder "/home/rj" are displayed on my desktop, and I don't want them to be.

When I click on "Places --> Desktop" it's as if I've clicked on "Places --> Home Folder" (the "File Browser" directory opens, the location is set at "/home/rj", and the title at the top is "File Browser").

Elementary stuff for a lot of you, I'm sure, but I'm blanking on how the Desktop folder can be restored to what I'd like it to be (basically empty, except for a "Downloads" folder), and my folders and files kept off the actual desktop (except for the "Downloads" folder).

Ubuntu :: Desktop Changed After Applying Updates?

Jun 18, 2010

So I just recently installed Ubuntu Lucid Lynx over my old XP system and I have been loving it so far. I did run into a problem though. Shortly after installing Ubuntu, it prompted me to install updates and I did so. After the updates had installed, my computer restarted and the whole desktop theme/look changed to a older looking version of Ubuntu. I really liked the look of Lucid Lynx and have been trying to get it back.

Ubuntu :: Desktop Icons Changed On Reboot?

Jul 31, 2011

I recently edited a .pptx presentation in LibreOffice, and it wouldn't close, until finally I had to force it to quit. The document recovered fine, and I saved it and all is good. I thought.

A couple of icons on the desktop acted weird, as in they wouldn't move, and I got a blank notification window when I tried to access them. So I rebooted.

Now, Launcher icons that had color are all in black and white, or most are, my desktop icons are b/w, and no longer have the icons that were associated with them originally. They seem to operate well, everything just changed.

I am running a Dual Core AMD Phenom II X2 565 64bit processor, 2G Ram, Natty, generic kernel, Radeon 4290 graphics.

All of my windows (I know, bad word, but what else do you call them?) have changed to b/w themes as well.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Unity Works - Classic And Safe Suddenly Empty Desktop

May 5, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 and all was working ok till today. I am not sure if it was because of a new update(manager)or maybe another reason, but i get a purple screen and a unresponsive window from a alarm clock app and thats it. This occures when I login onto Classic Ubuntu and Safe mode, the main Ubuntu (Unity) is working fine.

I did use Ubuntu Classic since install and was running fine. Now the screen is purple and cant even shut of the PC with the powerbutton. I can still get into terminal using CTRL+ALT+F1 and that about it... I had Dock installed,task bar... all is gone, even the background picture changed.

Fedora :: Mouse - Suddenly Jumping And Scrolling All Over The Desktop

Jan 23, 2011

Suddenly, today my mouse seems to have a mind of it's own. For no reason, it's suddenly jumping and scrolling all over the desktop in rapid fashion and apparently left-clicking at will. Reboot does not solve the problem, although it became less after the reboot.

Updates today were:

This is a generic optical mouse that's been used for several years without incident.

So, is there anything that might have caused the problem or is the mouse kaput?

Okay, dug through the drawers and found a Logitech usb optical mouse. Giving that a try as it seems to me that the mouse may be shot.

Fedora :: Suddenly Getting About 1.5" Of The Left Side Of My Desktop On The Right

May 18, 2011

I am suddenly getting about 1.5" of the left side of my desktop on the right, covering what SHOULD be there. I thought it might be my gDESKLETS as I had problems with this newer version before but removing it didn't help, so unless it is leaving something that is causing it, I don't see this being it. & I haven't done or added anything else, that I can think of, that may be behind this. I AM running the default drivers for the nVIDIA card, but all seemed OK until recently.

This happens the most if I run a application in a reduced size window or run a ..... video full screen. Rebooting seems to clear the problem for the ..... & max then min the window clears it for that. I'm using gnome on F14.

OpenSUSE :: Yast Won't Start After Changed Some Settings In "local Security"

Aug 20, 2010

1: I changed some settings in "local security", about file permits or something, and now I can't run Yast to fix it, not even see it. Neither can I add or remove any software. And the ugliest part is that I can't even shut down the pc. It pops up a shaking error message about authentication stuff. How do I fix this?

2: It also throws en exception whenever I try to install my monitor's driver, a HannsG, which is an .exe file. I was told I should run .exe files through Wine, but this wont work either. Is there another -and more appropriate- way to execute this files?

OpenSUSE Network :: No Network Connection After Firwall Settings Changed / Get It To Work?

Nov 17, 2010

I deleted the firewall files "K09SuSEfirewall2_init", "K01SuSEfirewall2_setup", "S11SuSEfirewall2_setup" and "S01SuSEfirewall2_init" from "/etc/rc.d/rc5.d" in order to disable the firewall when rebooting.

As a consequence all network services are not working. I can't connect to any other machine nor to the internet.

I rebuilt the symbolic files based on the ones for runlevel 3, but still no network services are available.

Any suggestions how to make it work again? I'm using Suse 11.3.

Ubuntu :: Desktop Power Settings Ignored

Jan 29, 2011

I was up all night trying to set up for a switch from Linux Mint 10 32-bit to Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit. For the most part, the migration has been successful. However, I'm having an issue with the power management settings: even though I've told Power Management to never turn off or lock the display, it does so anyway. I've saved it as default, rebooted, and still the same - after several minutes, the screen turns off and shows the lock screen when I wake it up with the mouse.
