I uninstalled xmms player quite a long time ago. I think when I had hardy heron. Currently I'm on 10.04. When I right click a .mp3 file I still have the option to play with xmms player showing up. Even if I choose an "other application" the xmms player option remains stickied to the top.Does anyone know how I can remove this entry? I did a lot of searching but couldn't find a solution.
i have java app. i want make my Linux dedicated to that application.such that,when Linux load it start the app, start menu have Shutdown,reboot and my application luncher, only one window , desktop right-click also have the same menu-items as start-menu.
In gnome 3, when I go to activities>applications I either have duplicates (sometimes I do and sometimes I don't) of some programs or no icons for the ones I uninstalled, but they are still there. How do I hide/delete them?
I have Fedora 11 installed-32bit-with xfce installed as the desktop. When I click on the fedora icon for the menu and select Preferences, there are 2 input methods listed even though I did not have any installed.Since there is no menu editor any more, does anybody know how to edit the menu so that I can get rid of these entries?
I have changed the preference in the Nautilus file manager/browser to "Single click to activate items" and it works.
However, when I run an application, say Totem Movie Player, and select Movie/Open I am presented with a Nautilus like file navigation dialog. This is a common dialog to most Gnome applications - probably part of Gnome. Problem is, the dialog does not respect my "single click..." preference.
I have tested this in Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04 alpha 2 and CentOS 5.4 - I do not think it is distribution related.
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. If I remove other buttons from the menu the space is immediately replaced by more Log Out Buttons.When I hover on the icon I get the message 'Log out of this session to log in as a different user' and when I right-cllick to click on 'Remove from Panel' or 'Move' nothing happens.It is not possible to right-click on another part of the menu bar to change the Menu Properties.
In my top right corner I got all my Ubuntu appindicators that come with Ubuntu 11.04. I also have Dropbox, caffeine and screenlets. 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. When screenlets appindicator is not present there is no problem. Its the same when I had Jupiter installed.
I can't seem to hide any items on the "Games" menu from "Main Menu" (System->Preferences->Main Menu). I can hide items on all of the other menus under the main one but the game links won't change. Is there another way to do this?
I can see how to add programs to the Launcher. I can also remove some things from the launcher. But there are some things that Ubuntu evidently thinks should never be removed from the launcherFor example I don't like "Files and Folders". It doesn't show the entire folder structure. I can't see how to remove it. Instead I prefer "File Manager".
I installed a dual boot Windows 7 / Ubuntu netbook remix 10.04 yesterday.So far so good, everything works fine.
However, i would like to get rid of the little enveloppe in the menu bar, more precisely in what i think is called the notification area. i have found some stuff online about how I'm supposed to delete a package and restart, quite unsuccessful method really, since the envelope is still there.
Plus whenI right click on the menu bar to pin / unpin items, it doesnt work, all the submenus are greyed out.
When I choose System --> Preferences --> Screensaver, it runs x-screensaver instead of gnome-screensaver, BUT, in /usr/share/applications, I have the file:
And the contents are:
[Desktop Entry] Name=Screensaver Comment=Set your screensaver preferences Icon=preferences-desktop-screensaver Exec=gnome-screensaver-preferences
So it should be launching gnome-screensaver, not x-scrensaver. Where on earth is x-screensaver getting launched from? I thought the menu was determined by /usr/share/applications. (By the way, I did previously have x-screensaver instead of gnome, I am trying to put it back how it was. I have more-or-less succeeded, except this Menu item which is puzzling me.)
I don't like Windows 7 Starter, nor Microsoft. I'm in the process of ditching them for Ubuntu. I'm trying, I really am. I've successfully installed Ubuntu Netbook Edition, and I'm now stuck. How the hell do I use this? I can't figure out how to add different items to my side menu bar. I can't figure out which version of Ubuntu I have. The documentation page says, "To check which version of Ubuntu you are running, click System -> About Ubuntu. The first line of the page that loads will tell you the version number, for example Ubuntu 10.04 LTS." I DON'T EVEN HAVE A "SYSTEM" BUTTON! How am I supposed to use this clumsy OS? I can't find any sort of "beginner's guide" or help like that on the internet.
Alright, after trying to organize shortcuts in Wine's menu (which did not work), I ended up hitting the 'Revert' button, which changed the names of most of the folders:
As you've probably guessed, I want to remove "wine-Programs-" from the beginning of the folder names. I've tried using the menu editor to do this, but the 'Properties' button does not seem to work on anything I did not create myself. How do I go about editing the names?
I would also like to know how to move the MS Office shortcuts into a custom folder/menu. They refuse to drag into any folder I make.
I just loaded KNE 10.4 onto my Dell Mini and I'm trying to get it configured. Some apps that I have installed using Synaptic (Kpackage seems pretty useless, even aside from the fact that the package names are illegible) are not showing up in the Search and Launch, and I would also like to add an additional category and add some items to the favorites list at the top of the page.
Right clicking does not seem to provide any options to change what used to be the menus, and middle clicking puts strange little yellow boxes at the bottom of the screen. (I haven't figured out how to make those go away.What config files hold the data I want to update? Are they not under ~/.kde for some reason?
When i reinstalled Ubuntu i reinstall it on top of an existing not working ubuntu so now in the boot menu i still have 2.6.35-6-generic menu items but i can't find 2.6.35-6-generic anywhere how can i fix it?
Not sure what precipitated this but Administration and Preferences are missing from the System menu. how to get them back? I have to go through the Gnome menu to get to System, not sure how it got removed from the panel.
Menu sometimes will stay visible on the desktop or on top of other windows after selecting them. To fix it I normally log out then log back in. Its been doing it for a few weeks. I install lots of eye candy/themes etc and have Avant, docky and cario-dock and think it be may some eye candy I installed, not sure. I have a ATI graphics card thats been tested by the distro. Using the latest 10.10 as I update security and recommended updates via update manager. Attached is a screenshot of the desktop as a example.
I want to modify some of the menu items in Unity to add some startup parameters to existing menu items. How do I do this in Unity? How do I look at the properties of the menu items? Where is this located?
My application bars are all missing their menu bars. They were showing up (along with the application title) on the top panel but I ran 'nohup gnome-panel' to at least make my system partially usable (i.e. this restores the top panel and the bottom 'bar' that has the running application icons and it also restored my close/minimize/maximize buttons to my windows).
I'm running Comsol 4.0 and in Unity the top Panel is supposed to have the menu items of the focused application, however Unity does not create them for Comsol. Notice the two pictures below, one running Comsol in Unity, the other one running in Gnome 2.32. Where my File>Edit>Options>Help at Unity
Okay, two packages in question here: sshd and xrdp.
In the /etc/rc.d/rc5.d directory there is a K??sshd link, I'm not really sure why the default is to kill sshd in graphical mode, but it's there. I saw it coincidentally when I went to add an S??xrdp link so that I could have xrdp run when the computer starts. I restarted the computer, and of course, couldn't connect via my Windows Remote Desktop client. A quick ps -e | grep xrdp in a terminal window showed me that xrdp had not, in fact, started.
I hop back in to ??/rc5.d to see if I messed up creating my link and poof. there's no more S??xrdp link, furthermore, the K??sshd link that I had removed was back.
Okay, so Fedora doesn't like you messing with the init links manually... I can dig it, cause there's this nifty gui tool to manage startup items... I go in to that and add entries for sshd and xrdp, calling them via their init scripts so I can make sure everything plays nicely... then restart.
Oh, wait, still no xrdp or sshd running.
If I manually start these servers using their init scripts from a terminal they run fine, no issues, but I don't want to do that, and I think we can all agree that I should't have to. What am I doing wrong? What is the 'proper' way to add servers to the startup process and since entering runlevel 5 apparently kills sshd, how do I prevent that?
I added Kubuntu-Desktop components to my Ubuntu 10.04 system using Synaptic Pkg Mgr, with the mistaken expectation that I would then be able to toggle between Ubuntu and Kubuntu Desktops. Of course, when adding Kubuntu-Desktop components, the dependencies feature brought in around 8 or 10 items.
I tried to undo all of this, but I fear I may have removed one or two Kubuntu named packages which may be part of the original Ubuntu installation.
Also there remains a gaggle of applications, such as Dolphin, KNetwork Mgr, Konqueror, just to name a few.
The two-fold question is, (1) How can I get back as closely as possible, to my original, pure Ubuntu installation, short of a complete re-install; and (2) Is there a document out there which lists all of the packages that come standard with the Ubuntu installation.
