Ubuntu :: Restoring Association For 'places' In Top Panel

Dec 14, 2010

I was having an issue with trying to create a zip file with ubuntu (10.10) after succeeding with that after missing the completely obvious for like an hour, I now have the following issue:If I select any folder from the "places" shortcut on the top panel, i.e. "home" or "downloads", instead of opening in what I believe to be nautilus, it opens in archive manager with the obvious error message "archive type not supported". How can I restore the function of "places" back to normal please?

Ubuntu :: Panel Menubar Wrong File Association?

Apr 12, 2011

I somehow messed up the file association of the panels.... Alle Folders in the "places" are linked to vlc media player.... except the "Computer" icon If I drag a folder on the desktop it opens with nautilus as it should I remember that i wrote somewhere manually "vlc..." to associate a videodvd, that worked too well I deinstalled vlc, but i only get an errormessage then " cant execute child process" so its still linked to vlc.....

Ubuntu :: Can't Add Terminal, Places, System Etc To Panel?

Aug 13, 2010

I removed my main panel this morning, which meant I lost all the launcher icons like the Terminal, places, system, etc. I right-clicked and selected New Panel, but when I select Add to Panel, it doesn't offer me the ability to put these items back on. The list included Clock, Weather, Garbage and Desktop, but doesn't include the others. I can't relaunch the Terminal. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as without terminal or application access, obviously the my system functionality is pretty limited.

Ubuntu :: Application, Places, System Gone From Panel?

Sep 10, 2010

I don't know if this is the result of an upgrade, software conflict or I did something I shouldn't have without even noticing. I was able to "Add" the main GNOME menu back by right clicking on the menu, etc. Now, Places and System are sub-menus of the main system menu.

Ubuntu :: Dropdown Menu In Places On Panel Always Only Launches Banshee?

Aug 7, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid), GNOME 2.30.2. After some time of correct operation, my dropdown menu from "Places" in the GNOME Panel has gone wrong.

If I click Places and then click on any of the dropdown shown, Home Folder, Desktop, Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos, Downloads, before the horizontal line separator, Banshee launches. Those after the separator, Computer, Floppy and my Hard Drives, launch correctly.

I have tried restoring the Panel to its original setting with no luck.

Fedora :: Get Rid Of Recent Documents Under Places Menu On Gnome Panel?

Oct 18, 2009

There are measures to stop this in Windows even though there are still things you can't get rid of. Now on to my question, Why can't I edit the Places menu but I can edit the Applications and System menus. I really want to get rid of the Recent Documents menu header. I don't like things like that right up on front street. I am quite a stickler about privacy and one of the reasons I decided to try out linux is because I heard it was better in the sense of respecting privacy. But now I am seeing that you don't even have the ability to get rid of a tracking item such as Recent Documents. Quite disappointing.

I can understand tracking recent changes to the system but it is not necessary to track what you open or what you browse on the internet. Hence Firfox's ability to not store history and the clear cache, history, etc. on shutdown of Firefox. So Am I misinformed about the fact that linux does respect privacy? What kind of world are we coming to that it is necessary to track everything. Especially here in the U.S., I mean I'm thinking 1984 here lol. Anyway, how to remove these tracking features in Fedora. I mean in the sense of just stopping it. It sucks to have to go through and "clear" everything that tracks you every time you want to log off or shut down.

Ubuntu :: Restoring Panel "deleted" The Desktop Files

May 19, 2010

After restoring my panel using these commands:

owner@owner-desktop:~$ gconftool-2 �shutdown
owner@owner-desktop:~$ rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
owner@owner-desktop:~$ pkill gnome-panel

my files on the desktop, in my home directory went missing. Also looking at my harddrive it seems like it has completely wiped out my content.I had some important files on my desktop and I am wondering if there is any way to get them back? It doesn't reasonable that all my files were deleted during a panel restore, maybe they are hiding under a rock somewhere . the system I am running it on is: Ubuntu 10.04

Ubuntu :: Can't Access Folders From "Places" On Panel / Enable This?

Feb 19, 2011

Every time I want to access any subfolder, such as "Downloads", "Pictures", etc of my File System using "Places" on panel, a little window with the message "Error" and "File not found" pop up on my screen.

But if I access "Computer" from "Places", I can access the files I want from "File System".

Is there any way I can sort this out?

Ubuntu :: Main Panel Menu For "Places" - Defaults To Movie Player?

Feb 16, 2011

I don't know how this happened, been using Ubuntu for a few years now (but I still consider myself a newbie): Using 10.10. In the "places" drop down menu, when I click on locations such as Home, Documents, Downloads, etc, the Totem Movie Players runs, and tries to "open" the files in the respective folders --- instead of a Nautilus file manager window opening up.

How could this have happened? I looked in both Nautilus and Movie Player "Preferences", but was unable to find any customizable options that could be related.

Ubuntu :: Access Folder Through "Places" In Top Panel?

Dec 12, 2010

Whenever I try and open any of the files that are in "Places" instead of opening them it opens my Appearance preferences instead. It was happening with everything in the Home folder to start off with (so that's desktop, documents, music, videos, pictures and downloads) and now it's spread to the icons for my windows filesystem and Computer. When I click on the windows filesystem it opens Appearance preferences but it still mounts the drive so I can access my folders by clicking on the desktop icon that appears but I'd prefer if I could access them through "Places" in my top panel.

Ubuntu :: Txt File Association Fail On Fat32?

Sep 15, 2010

I have a Windows 7 partition, a fat32 partition that I use for moving data between Windows and Linux, and an Ubuntu partition. On the Ubuntu partition, I can right click on a text file and the top of the menu says "open with 'gedit'." On the fat32 partition, the same action says just "open," and the "open with" submenu doesn't include gedit.

If I right-click and choose properties on the same file, the "open with" tab shows gedit as the default file association. So that's weird... anyone else seen anything like this?

Ubuntu :: VLC Playlists - Won't Remember File Association

Sep 21, 2010

I am trying to use VLC playlists.

Either xspf or m3u.

Creating them is fine but the only they will launch is if I "Open With" VLC.

Having "Remember this application for "XSPF playlist" files." checked seems to make the assignment b/c when I right-click to get properties VLC is chosen under the "Open With" tab.

The icon doesn't change from the music note image either (I thought I'd get some VLC icon)

I understand this is a bug and you must edit ".local/share/applications/mimeapps.list"

But don't know what to enter there for XSPF or M3U files.

Ubuntu 10.04.1
VLC 1.2.2

Ubuntu :: File Association To A Program That Will Only Run In It's Own Directory?

Apr 9, 2011

is a file association to a program that will only run in it's own directory. (Arobas' Guitar Pro, if you're curious). The link created by the installer leads to a shell script, which cd's to /opt/GuitarPro6, then executes the program there. Attempting to call the program from outside that directory fails, as the program cannot find it's libraries. It starts normally otherwise.

Passing a file name to the program via the command line works fine, IF you start with the working directory as above. The question is, what can I do to pass the filename to the command line in the shell script, so that double-clicking in Nautilus brings up the program with the file? (Currently, just associating with the shell script gives me the program, with no loaded file).

Second issue is files with an .hjt extension. They're essentially text files, following a specific format used by Treepad. Nautilus recognizes them as text files. When I change their association to Treepad, regular .txt files follow this change, and when I change the .txt's back to Leafpad, the .hjt's follow. How can I separate the .hjt's from the .txt's?

Ubuntu :: Change The Unity Launch Icons File Association?

Sep 1, 2011

I'd like to know how to change the Unity Launch icons file association. For example; when i click the 'Files and Folders' icon and the side menu pops up with recent, favorites, etc. I click any of them and they associate those files or folders with Vuze. It also associates the trash can at the bottom of the menu, and any external hdd that i attach; but this only occurs when i open them through the Unity Launch Bar. I can go to the Home icon and open a folder and they open, or open the hdd off the desktop and its fine. It seems to only happen when i try to open them through Unity.

General :: File Association For Desktop Environment

Mar 9, 2011

With a desktop environment, there are file associations that goes with it. I'm a minimalistic user, who doesn't use any of such, but still want some kind of file associations to ease my burden. So I'm searching for a program that does something like the following. open file.pdf this will look at the extension, and translate to okular file.pdf. Of course one can always write a bash script to do this. I wonder if there is something existing, so I don't reinvent the wheel.

Ubuntu :: Edit Mime Types To Remove A File Type Association?

Oct 30, 2010

I installed a trial copy of Anquet Map V06 under Wine then decided to remove it. Afterwards I could find many remnants associated with the Anquet program which I've deleted. Except what remains is an association between my .gpx files with Anquet and that includes and any new gpx file I download. My interpretation is that during the install process an association has been created with the gpx file type and the Anquet map program. This is what I want to stop. If I download a .gpx file and look at it's properties I see- Type: GPX File -Anquet Mapsv06 (application/x-wine-extension-gpx) I found this file and it's contents-

<mime-type type="application/x-wine-extension-gpx">



Running "sudo update-mime-database /usr/share/mime" and rebooting didn't remove the association. How can I stop the Anquet name making as association with my gpx files?

Debian Multimedia :: File Association For AVI Does Always Open Totem

Nov 13, 2010

Since I installed my new debian squeeze system with gnome 2.30.2 I got problems with totem and totem-xine application.

Problem 1: The file asociation for .avi does always open totem! I changed the .avi file asociation unter -> preferences -> "preferred applications" for example to vlc... but no chance it always open the totem player. I looked also in the gnome configuration tool (gconf) and there is the file asociaton set on vlc, but he still opens totem.

Problem 2: All .avi files with video content I cannot see the video and I hear only the audio stream. If I open the video I got a popup with the message that the codec is not installed, then I click on search codecs and totem search for it and does not found anything. I have the codec installed because I see it in avidemux...
- If I install only totem I install also all gstreamer packages ...
- If I install totem-xine I install all xine plugins packackages etc ...
- If I use vlc or mplayer all works fine ...
- If I start totem over a console shell and I open the video, I get no error message in the shell.

Programming :: Association Lists Are Faster Than Hash Tables?

Jun 13, 2011

I'm writing an interpreter and it used simple association lists for mapping varaible names to their values. Here's the code:


#include "assoc_array.hpp"
#include <string.h>
using namespace LANG_NAMESPACE;


I thought that I would replace it with a hash table to increase performance. Note that I decided to store linked lists in the buckets instead of the actual values, in case the hash function outputs the same index for multiple variable names:


#include "hash_table.hpp"
#include "assoc_array.hpp"
#include <string.h>


It runs in about 0.333 seconds on my machine. Since I'm using git version control, I decided to bring back the old version that used association lists. To my amazement, it ran 3 times faster, completing in 0.116 seconds! Is my hash table implementaion really that bad, or is this a really poor benchmark (and real-world code actually will be faster using the hash table)?
