Ubuntu :: Editing Right Click Menu In 1104 Classic?

May 2, 2011

As Unity have too much serious regressions to be usable desktop (I'll list some so maybe somebody could get an idea what to change for Ocelot 1110 edition):desktop switcher is obnoxious for somebody who is used to having 8-12 virtual desktops and to see in system tray what desktop is taken and what desktop is free. I do not see Pidgin icon in system tray anymore. And I hate (not dislike, but hate) Empathy, so I do not want to hear "Install Empathy". Have empathy for users who just want their apps in system tray! Launcher is bugged. I added Synaptic to it, place in launcher was taken, but there was no icon until restart. I added dconf-editor, there was no icon for it also after restart. weather applet is no more part of date/time tray indicator, but you can install it separately. Yes, you can install it separately, but you can not add your location, and that applet is not smart enough to read your old settings of weather and 1-5 locations for time zones should I go further? In short, 1104 is stable but default login (Unity) is not functional. It is better than M$ Vista which was not stable, but I expected that Ubuntu would adhere to higher standards than one shitty commercial company which wants only money of users and therefore rushed non-functional software to market.

My question (finally): In Ubuntu classic items I added to right click menu using nautilus-actions are not there anymore. They are still present in Nautilus, but not in desktop right-click menu. I googled a bit and found zilch, so I ask here. Please share how to do it (scripts folder is still there, but that would be regression to be unable to edit right click menu, FFS Ubuntu is not proprietary software so we would be helpless and could not tweak our favorite OS how we like it).

OpenSUSE :: Editing The Desktop's Right Click Menu?

Mar 20, 2011

First things first, I've just moved from Ubuntu with Gnome to openSuse with KDE. So I'm lost as doing some things in this environment. However, I'm loving what I'm seeing with suse/kde combo. I'm planning on making an extensive right-click menu to categorize all my applications. Basically I want to have the "start" menu available to me when I right-click. I've google casually for a couple days and haven't found much that helps, but I think its because I'm not using the correct keywords seeing as I'm new to this environment.

I have a feeling I'm going to have to make a [Desktop Entry], but I'm not sure how to handle hierarchy and stuff like that.

I'm brand new to Linux and Ubunto 10.04.On the menu bar at the top of my desktop I seem to have attracted some kind of bug!The Log Out Symbol repeats itself across almost the entire menu bar and I cannot remove it.

Problem is that I cant click on dropbox, caffeine, battery indicator, wlan or sound indicator until I first click on messages menu and slide over to appindicator that I need.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Unity - Manage Workspaces \ Still Miss The Good Visual Feedback And The Single Click Action That The Lower Panel (classic) Desktop Switcher Used?

May 21, 2011

I like 11.04 with Unity however I would like to find a method of managing workspaces with mouse (not keyboard) which gives constant visual feedback and is faster than using the launcher bar, which although not 'slow', takes time to appear and it then takes time to locate the (non movable) desktop switcher item.I happily adopt most of what 11.04 (Unity) offers, however, I really still miss the good visual feedback and the single click action that the lower panel (classic) desktop switcher used. Is there a way of me using some item in unity which is closely similar?

Ubuntu :: Get The Close / Max / Min / Title Into The Panel/global Menu In 11.04 Classic?

Jun 21, 2011

I had to finally give up Unity because my little netbook was running so slow. However, I loved the global menu because it freed some valuable screen space. In classic, I can't figure out how to get the close/max/min/title into the panel/global menu like it is default in Unity. Is there a way?

Ubuntu :: Adding Right Click -> Keyboard 'v' For Editing A File With Gvim In Nautilus?

Mar 21, 2010

In windows when I install gvim/vim, it automatically installs a context menu in explorer that lets me edit a file in gvim by simply right clicking and pressing v. For someone who edits a lot of files and is really used to vim, it is super-convenient. I want to do the same thing in nautilus. So I installed nautilus-actions and added to the context menu of editing with gvim. That wasn't hard. The hard part is getting that keyboard key to bind to that context menu item. Currently when I right click and press v, it sends the item to trash. I want it such that when I right click a file and press v, it edits the file in gvim. How can I do that? I want a good solution, and am willing to switch file managers/window managers if need be. This particular shortcut key is very important to my user experience.

OpenSUSE :: Change GNOME Menu Back To Classic View?

Nov 11, 2010

I am wondering how you can change the view of the classic GNOME menu (Applications | Places | System) in 11.3 to the "classic" view (like in Fedora)? The Applications menu has to much sub-menus. I prefer it flat. The nautilus bookmarks are not directly accessible in Places either, which is not really comfortable.

Ubuntu :: Editing Grub So It Does Not Timeout Menu?

Aug 22, 2010

I am trying to edit grub so that it doesn't timeout the menu. I've found a lot of solutions to this where I edit menu.lst. However, this file is blank when I open it. I just upgraded to Lucid and kept a lot of my old grub settings (I had customized it somewhat). Also, I am not sure if I have grub or grub2. How can I figure this out?

Ubuntu Installation :: Editing Menu.lst For Multiple Distros

Feb 19, 2010

My hard disk is :

/dev/sda2 Primary Linux ext3
/dev/sda3 Primary Windows
/dev/sda5 Logical Linux ext3 /boot
/dev/sda6 Logical Swap
/dev/sda7 Logical Linux Ext3 /home
/dev/sda8 Logical Linux ext3 /

After this install I wished to try out Backtrack 4 which I installed on /dev/sda2. The version of GRUB which was installed with Ubuntu 9.10 got wiped out and the version of GRUB with backtrack was installed . However the menu did not consist of the Ubuntu 9.10 booting option . How should I edit menu.lst so that I can get all my Ubuntu 9.10 booting option along with my backtrack installation

Ubuntu :: Finish Editing The Grub Menu.1st File?

Aug 10, 2010

I'm trying to find out which hard drive my vista installation is labeled in ubuntu so I can finish editing the grub menu.1st file.

All it says on the sourceforge page is


Root - You likely have something along these lines "(hd0,1)". "hd0" refers to the your hard drive while 1 points to the partition. Note that for GRUB, partitions start at 0 and not 1. for example 0=Partition 1, 1=Partition 2 and so on.

It doesn't say how I can find out which one my vista is. So I need to know what my hard drive is in linux. Is it hd0,1 or hd0 or what?

Ubuntu :: Editing The Grub Startup Menu To Take Out Some Of The Previous Versions

Jun 12, 2010

I'm interested in editing the Grub startup menu to take out some of the previous versions of Ubuntu. First, is there a reason Grub keeps the previous versions available to boot to in that list? If it is just in case of a problem with the new installation wouldn't it make sense to only have the most recent previous installation? Anyway here is the problem, when I run: Code: "gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst"

The editing program opens the file named "menu.lst" but the file is empty. How is it possible for this file to be empty yet I have multiple boot options and they all work? Does anybody know what I am running into here?

Ubuntu :: Editing The Destination For A WINE Launcher In The Applications Menu?

Apr 9, 2011

I would like to edit the destination a launcher which opens a program using WINE. It is Applications >> Wine >> Programs >> World of Warcraft >> World of Warcraft. When I use Edit Menus to check the launcher properties I learn it is set as Type: Application, and Command: [URL]...How would I instead have it point directly at opening, with WINE, /home/dusf/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/World of Warcraft/Wow.exe?

The -opengl argument shouldn't matter as I have it preconfigured to run with opengl in the config. If relevant, when I navigate to c:/Program Files/World of Warcraft/, and open Wow.exe manually, it opens using WINE automatically.

Fedora :: Editing Activities / Applications Menu In F15?

Jun 3, 2011

Recently made the switch to F15 and GNOME3. The changes are a little jarring, but I'm trying to have some good faith, see how I adjust to things, etc. Any ways, the applications menu (in "fallback" mode) or the 'activities -> applications' menus (in "full" mode) have every application I've ever installed, some times poorly classified. I'd like to edit these, making more minimal menus.

There is, of course, the "alacarte" application. While it runs just fine -- the changes are not reflected in the menus (in either mode). One could manually edit the desktop configuration text files, I assume, but as much work as I need to do -- I was hoping for a GUI application. Does an alternative exist? or a way to interface them?

My friend have a laptop which was running in windows 7.Last week he installed Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx.But after that boot menu is not showing and it is automatically booting to ubuntu.

So i pressed Shift key during boot and checked boot menu list,which is showing only linux OS ,Linux OS recovery mode and memtest86,No windows 7 option.

So I did following things.

Step1: Tried to find out the partitions using fdisk -l

2.So i tried to add a manual entry by editing the /etc/grub.d/40_custom file like below ,and changed the permission using chmod +x update-grub command

3.Run the update-grub command

But it is not updating the manual entry,The above update-grub command output showing the update-grub command not even entering into the /etc/grub.d/40_custom file because i put echo in that file in that ,and that also not coming.
