Ubuntu :: Disable The Desktop Effects Permanently?


In the desktop effects configuration screen, "Enable desktop effects" is checked, however the checkbox is grayed out and I can't uncheck it. All I can do is "Suspend desktop effects", but they get reenabled after every login. How do I disable them permanently?

Ubuntu :: Turn The Desktop Effects Permanently On?
I'm using Kwin desktop effects. I turn on some desktop effects and it worksbut after I reboot my PC, the desktop effects does not turn on automatically.I always need to turn it on again. I always resume the compositing every restart.Also, I can't find all the effects in kwin. I can only adjust the basic effects (the first tab) but when I tried to go to the all effects tab (the second tab) it is empty.

Tried to reinstall original nVidia drives, didn't helped.Also tried gnome desktop, snow begins after login.In vesa mode working fine 800x600, and I don't think that is related to video card, it should be big coincidence.

Software :: Disable Desktop Effects On Mandriva Without Reaching It?
I successfully Installed nvidia graphics driver version 173.14.12 for Geforce FX5200 on Mandriva 2008 (It couldn't find a precompiled header, so built the driver against devel) .

It worked OK, everything became faster(than not having a driver) and OpenGL games were acceptable too.

Then I enabled 3D desktop effects (to it's medium level), it said it should log off, it did and restarted X server and then (autologin) Gnome didn't come. It's the screen in loading desktop, and cursor shows "working in background"(busy but shows the cursor itself too).

I'm not very interested in 3D effects, I just wanted to see how it is, now I want to know how to get it back.

I tried to go through Alt+Ctrl+F1 and close the program supposed to do 3D effects, or restart to runlevel 3 and change XF86Config but nothing seemed relative to 3D effects.

OpenSUSE :: Disable KDE Desktop Effects On A Single Window / Application?
When Desktop Effects are enabled in KDE the window for Tecplot 'bleeds' through, as if ~40% transparent in various regions. Disabling desktop effects fixes this, however, I would like to keep them. Is there a way to disable desktop effects on a single window/application?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Video With 11.4 32 Bit & The Intel 865 Graphics Controller - Disable "Desktop Effects"/XGL/compiz?
Just put 11.4, 32 bit on a system with an Intel D865 GLC motherboard and 865G built in graphics controller. While the install went OK it turns out that X is totally hosed. After fighting with things for a while and discovering that Sax2 had disappeared I poked at Google and discovered some other poor folks that have had similar issues with Intel video cards. Based on a suggestion for a doc in OpenSuse.org I edited the file: /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf

and added the line: Driver "intel" to it - after that things got better. Obviously the install process had not identified the video card correctly. I'm now left with another issue - while the system now identifies the driver and can talk to the monitor correctly, a Samsung S23A350H I can't open a window after X comes up and I login - basically the same issue as the unresolved Bug 673873: [Bug 673873] intel [865G] Windows flash rapidly or don't appear if Desktop Effects are on in KDE and GNOME

The workaround is to turn Desktop Effects off but since X doesn't work I can't figure out how to do that. I can't find the gnome-xgl-switch or a xgl-switch that used to exist to do it on the command line so that's out. Someone said you could drop the empty file "disable-compiz" in the ~/.config/compiz directory and that would do it but in 11.4 that directory doesn't exist. how to disable "Desktop Effects"/XGL/compiz or whatever it is now called on the command line in OpenSuse 11.4 without a gui if that is still possible?

Ubuntu :: Permanently Disable A Key?
So I just installed Ubuntu on my second laptop, however I ran into a problem. The F9 key is going crazy. I'm not exactly sure what is causing it (I've already popped off and cleaned the keys) but if I could find a way to just disable it I'd be very happy.

Ubuntu :: How To Permanently Disable A Touchpad
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 on Lenovo Thinkpad, and I have tree pointing devices:
- touchpad
- trackpoint
- mouse, that is connected only when I am home, so for around 50% of time.

I have downloaded a package "Pointing Devices" and tried to disable a touchpad, which annoys me. Sometimes new settings works, but each time I connect/disconnect mouse, the default settings (everything on) restores. It's even worse, because right now the touchpad works and annoys me, while it's written that it's disabled in "Pointing devices", so either the package is outdated, or it's a BUG.

How to permanently disable a touchpad?

Ubuntu / Apple :: How To Permanently Disable Fn Key
I've tried all three options here to permanently disable the fn key (so that when I press F1 it'll bring up help and when I press fn+F1, it'll dim the screen, etc.).

These methods work upon reboot, but once the computer is put to sleep (i.e. I close my lid), the settings are reverted back to default and I must use fn+ for everything again.

How can I keep the fn key disabled?

And on another note, why use gksudo instead of just sudo?

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Permanently Disable Wireless
I don't use wireless on my desktop so i would like it permanently disabled...each time i boot up it's back and receving up to 80mb of data from an unknown connection via wireless (i dont use wireless) so, to avoid any weird connections to my neighboors house or some kid hacking the neighborhood driving by with a wireless router in his truck i'd like to permanently turn off wireless. this is kind of funny because i had a hard time getting wireless to work on my laptop, but this is my desktop where i do not want it. i looked it up and your forum back in 2007 said to type in iwconfig in the shell then get the nickname of the wireless card then to black list the wireless card. i did this but it didn't work, so what do i do now? i have ubuntu 9.10

Fedora :: How To Permanently Disable Selinux
I came across the following method of how to permanently disabling selinux and it's notifications. Although changing enforcement from the gui into permissive mode does most of the job, the notifications still pop-up when some applications are started.

So to disable it do the following:

open terminal as root and execute:

Quote:

And then change the SELINUX line to SELINUX=disabled

Quote:

This is it. Now reboot the system and selinux will never bother you again.

If you are not a Fedora user and you are using this forum just because we are cooler here then you will not find the /etc/selinux/config as in the fedora releases. What you need to do is to edit the kernel boot line and add selinux=0 at the end:

Quote:

Reboot the system

General :: Disable Ssh Server Permanently?
Now i want to disable my ssh server "permanently",which means it won't run unless i start it after i login.that is,it is disabled at boot time by default.
i have asked a similar question before,but i still have some confusions.
Say that now the ssh server is running.my system is ubuntu 10.04. code...

The disable|enable API is not stable and might change in the future.

what on earth should i do to solve this?

Ubuntu :: How To Permanently Disable Gnome-keyring-daemon
How to permanently disable the gnome-keyring-daemon.

I've seen posts where there was a work around to store passwords in clear text. That's not a real solution. I've seen posts where killing the process and removing ~/.gnome2/keyrings is a temporary solution until next time you log in or reboot machine. Removing the package, will force removal of the whole kitchen sink. That's too intrusive.

There must be a way to stop this thing from starting up, ever.

I tried commenting out the entries in the /etc/pam.d/* files that refer to "pam_gnome_keyring.so", and have also unchecked the 3 keyring related entries under System --> Preferences --> Startup Applications, which are affiliated with these 3 files:

But I still get this one process once I log into the console window:

There must be one more file somewhere that says, "hey when someone logs in and starts up gdm, start the gnome keyring daemon".

OpenSUSE Install :: OS 11.3 RC2 - Disable Nouvou Module Permanently; Use Propietary NVidia Drivers?
I have compiled the proprietary nvidia drivers for 11.3. When I boot, even using the nomodeset boot option, the nouveau module still loads, causing gdm/X to fail. I am able to manually remove the modules with rmmod and restart gdm. Everything then works normally. I have added the line "blacklist nouveau" to both 50-blacklist.conf and 99-local.conf in /etc/modprobe.d
