Ubuntu :: Document Viewer Doesn't Save Information To Fillable Pdf Properly / Solve This?

Dec 20, 2010

I am trying to fill out this PDF form:


In Document Viewer, I can click on the fields and type in them, but after spending about 2 hours writing descriptions of courses, I saved it and... it closed the document I was working on, and loading the document I saved resulted in empty fields that could no longer be edited at all - clicking on them did nothing - it looked like a blank form, except it was also broken.

Is there any way I can actually fill in this form...

Ubuntu :: Music File Information Editing Doesn't Save

Apr 5, 2010

I have some japanese music files stored on a flash drive that the titles of which are in japanese originally. While in the flash drive, when I go to Properties -> Audio, the title is written in japanese. It does not allow me to edit the file, no matter what permissions I have on it, therefore I can't change the name to english. So, I tried Rhythmbox instead, and transfered the file there. I could change the name, however there is STILL a huge problem.

I have around 300 japanese music files, all of which have to be renamed into english.
I did all this for all of them in Rhythmbox, and clicked "quit" when I was done. When I came back to transfer the files to my MP3 player like usual, I opened Rhythmbox, and...

ALL OF THE FILES WERE STILL IN JAPANESE! It didn't save any of the work I did on editing them. But, I calmed down and thought "oh, you can save playlists! I am sure that if I save them on one, it will keep the edits!" I did this, and it saved nothing. It took me 2 hours to finish the renaming, just to find out that it can't save information edits at all.

Ubuntu :: New Shorcut For Document Viewer?

Oct 28, 2010

I'm using my laptop to read an ebook, and as I have no table where I read, i just rotate the screen to the right and hold the laptop as I was holding a book.. the problem I have now is the scrolling. So I have a couple Ideas, but I haven't found how to implement them, maybe someone knows how to do it, and could point me to the right direction.

1.- Use the webcam. Is there any way to use my left thumb to control the scrolling trough some kind of gestures in the webcam. 2.- Create a shortcut. I tried to create a new shortcut and assign it to the bluetooth key of my laptop, but I couldn't find any "command" that means scroll down

Ubuntu :: Program Path For Document Viewer?

Mar 19, 2010

I've been searching the site to find out what the program path is for Ubuntu programs, but can't find what I'm looking for. My search terms were :

- "program path" Ubuntu
- change "program path"
- "open with" "program path"

I came across a few articles but nothing really seemed to help me. Here's the problem; anytime I try to open a PDF file from my browser, I get either the "Open With..." option or the "Save to..." option.

If I select "Open With..." the default has been changed to Virus Scanner (ClamTK) which I recently installed. Admittedly, I was fooling around with virus scanners to see how they work in Ubuntu. But now my Document Viewer won't open up the PDF files. If I select "Save to..." and save the PDF file(s) to my desktop, and double-click the PDF file from my desktop, then Document Viewer will open up the file. What is the program path for me to change the default program back to Document Viewer???

Ubuntu :: Document Viewer Not Scrollable Horizontally?

May 30, 2011

I am actually impressed with the innovation with scrollbars in Natty. However, when I'm using Ubuntu Classic, I cannot scroll document viewer horizontally because the handle gets under the lower panel (see screenschot attached)I have read somewhere that the new scrollbar is meant to save space, and the handle will automatically appear when hovered: the handle will appear outside the window if the window is smaller than the screen, and inside if the window or document is maximized or no space left outside the window. In my case, even if the document viewer (which is viewing a pdf) is maximized, the horizontal scrollbar still appears below the document. I needed to remove the lower panel just to scroll the document horizontally.

Ubuntu :: Get Document Viewer To Display Chinese Characters In A Pdf?

Feb 28, 2010

Is there a way to get Document Viewer to display Chinese characters in a pdf? Adobe Viewer does but I would prefer to avoid proprietary software. I cannot get either Document Viewer or Okular to properly show Chinese characters in pdf documents downloaded from my college class homepage.

I have all the Chinese language support files, bells and whistles (both traditional and simplified) loaded and operational. When I create a Chinese document in OO Writer and save it as a pdf, both DocViewer and Okular display the the Chinese characters properly. I just cannot get either DocViewer or Okular to display Chinese in pdfs that are downloaded from the website of my course's online textbook/workbook.

Running 9.10 full boat version on an EEE 1000HD netbook.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Document Viewer Window Size Keeps Resetting

Apr 18, 2010

In Ubuntu 10.04 using Document Viewer 2.30.0 I've noticed that every time I open the program or a PDF file I haven't opened before the window size seems to reset to default. Thumbnails sidebar re-enables, view goes back to "Fit Page Width" and the actual size of the window goes back to being very small (default).

Software :: Xane Scans To A Pdf Which Document Viewer Cannot Print

Jan 3, 2010

Ubuntu 9.10 54 bit
XSane 0.996
Document Viewer 2.28.1
Brother MFC 240c multi function scanner, printer, fax

So I am cleaning up some old paper records from 2009. I scanned about 25 pages of old medical receipts, prescription receipts etc. as a multi page project. The destination was a pdf file. The desired file is created and I can open it in the default Document Viewer. When I try to print to my Brother HL5170DN laser printer (just one page as a test) I get a message in the print queue window:

Processing Printer warning

and the job never prints. I can print pdf files from other sources such a printing a web page to a file/pdf, pdf files downloaded or created on other computers etc.

If I print the pdf created by XSane and viewed in Document Viewer to the MFC 240c ink jet printer, the pages are about 3/4 size, not the full size pages I scanned.

I am forced to do my scanning and pdf writing on an XP virtual machine running on the Ubuntu box under VMWare

Ubuntu :: LibreOffice Cannot Save Existing Document To Windows Server

Jun 10, 2011

I am having a problem with a LibreOffice when saving or saving as to a Windows Share.



Small office server running Windows. Mounted using the Gigolo manager (used without issue in version 10.10).

All of our contracts and proposals are on the server. I can open a contract in LibreOffice from the server.

(All documents I am working with are native openoffice formats, these were not MS file conversions.)

I open a document titled A_Libreoffice_test.odt from the contracts directory on the windows server. No problems. I save as A_Libreoffice_test_2.odt to the contracts directory on the Windows server and get this error box:

If I select all contents within my document and paste it into a new LibreOffice Writer file then save the new file to the contracts directory on my Windows server, it saves without any problems. However, should I open that very same file that I just created and try to save it after a change or save as without any change, I will receive the error again.

Of course copy and pasting textual contracts is one thing but we also do all of our proposals in OpenOffice Draw (LibreOffice Draw) which behaves the same way. The select all, copy/paste into a new document workaround is less attractive in Draw.

We have 5 Ubuntu machines in our office working with files on this server. For now, employees and I are having to save our documents and transfer them to the server nightly.

I did a test by booting into the MacOS where I am also running LibreOffice and did not experience the same problem.

Here is what I have tried so far:

1) Removing all libreoffice applications and files then reinstalling but that also did not solve the problem.

2) Disabling the firewall on our Windows server temporarily to test the save as function (no change).

3) Remove libreoffice and try to install OpenOffice (not successful).

4) Poured some scotch and posted this question here on the Ubuntu forum... hopefully this works

General :: Cannot Get Moonlight To Run Properly On Ubuntu 9.10 Firefox / Solve It?

Ubuntu 9.10 - Firefox 3.5.5 - Dell Latitude D600 Lap top.

Can anyone view any of the movie content on this page?

When I try to view one it starts and then just turns white. Then Firefox crashes. I have no clue what is going on with it.

Oddly I have no problem viewing the Silverlight content on this page:

Or many other Silverlight pages. I've seen this happen not only on the above page but other Silverlight content.

So anyone experience the same thing? I'm guessing there is some code on the web page that triggers a bug or something.

Ubuntu :: Figures - When Save Document And Open It Up Again The Plots Are Gone - Unable To Read

Mar 25, 2010

I have made some plots in gnuplot that I wanted to include in a document. I have tried both OpenOffice and Kile.

In openoffice the plots are shown when they are imported, but when I save the document and open it up again the plots are gone (unable to read).

In Kile I can't even import them, It cant find the file in the folder. I tried changing the formats from jpg to png - didn't work. Tried just taking a snapshot of the original plot and saving it, didn't work either (but have used the same method earlier today without problems for a different image).

When i move the cursor across the file, it fades away as if it's not registered correctly. Does anybody have a solution for this?

Jun 16, 2010

my mediacenter is attached to an beamer with the optimal resolution of 1280*720 ubuntu 10.04 doesnt offer me this revolution (on my intel 915 graphis controller). this means i have to add this resolution to the possible resolutions. first i used cvt

Modeline "1280x720_60.00" 74.50 1280 1344 1472 1664 720 723 728 748 -hsync +vsync

then i added this to xrandr


xrandr --verbose --newmode "1280x720" 74.50 1280 1344 1472 1664 720 723 728 748 -hsync +vsync

Ubuntu :: Kstars - No List Of Telescopes In Telescope Wizard And Can't Save Information Under Properties

Jul 2, 2010

I'm having problems with Kstars and would like to know the proper place to post questions or if there is a forum just for the Kstars program. I can't find much info on the net. If I remember right it worked in Ubuntu 8 but I've upgraded to the latest and some options in Kstars are not working now. In a nutshell, some of the problems are:

1: Help not working. I get....Could not Launch the KDE help center: Could not find service 'khelpcenter'
2: In telescope wizard, there is no list of telescopes.
3: I cant save my telescope information under properties.

As I'm just learning this stuff, it could be a bug but not sure, so please point me in the right direction for help. I'm running dual boot on a HP laptop. Windows XP and Ubuntu. I have reformatted the drive and installed everything new for a clean slate.

Ubuntu :: PDF Functions Does Not Work Properly Under O/S (print And Save)

Feb 18, 2010

This is about the 3rd or 4th year that I have tried to fill in my Federal tax return on the IRS website using Ubuntu/Firefox/pdf program(s). Still to this day the PDF functions found available (or should I say unavailable) (whether using either EVINCE or ACROREAD) for this O/S will not properly function in allowing you to CONSISTENTLY complete a PDF IRS form on their website, print and then save that completed IRS form to the hard drive of your computer. This is sort of ridiculous! Yes, I have report this as a bug NUMEROUS times and it is still not fixed.
