I have been trying to active the shortcut <Super>+D to minimize all active windows and show desktop. Compiz is already install on my system,that I have tried all possible combinations of "show desktop" functionality in Compiz and Gnome itself. However, whenever I use the shortcut, it activates(maximize) one window first, and it shows desktop if I use the shortcut second time. Actually same thing happens when I press the "show desktop" button on the panel as well
noticed that the button at the bottom left corner of the desktop doesn't work.It is supposed to hide everything on the desktop and when clicked again bring everything back.I was jacking around (learning) with Compiz yesterday, but not sure how that could affect it.
I'm using Gnome on openSUSE 11.2. I can't get rid of the ctrl-alt-d keyboard shortcut in Gnome. I have set it to "disabled" in control center -> keyboard shortcuts, but no luck.
When I run the gnome-keybindings-properties program from the terminal it dumps these two messages onto stderr:
(gnome-keybinding-properties:11958): keybinding-properties-WARNING **: No description for key '/apps/compiz/general/allscreens/options/opacity_decrease_key' (gnome-keybinding-properties:11958): keybinding-properties-WARNING **: No description for key '/apps/compiz/general/allscreens/options/opacity_increase_key'
and the following two messages like 20 or so times:
I realize this isn't the most critical problem, but I am experimenting with Guile (scheme as a C extension language) which I am editing in Emacs, and even after reassigning "down-list" I keep hitting C-M-d because it's right by C-M-f which I also use constantly, and this minimizes all my windows! And there is nothing on my desktop, I never use the feature intentionally. Maybe I should get a wallpaper that says "HaHa Dummy!" or something of the sort to at least get a chuckle out of it when it happens.
I've created a custom profile for the terminal, and have edited CompizConfig to make it a transparent shell, so now my background is essentially now my terminal. However, when I click "Show Desktop", it minimizes everything, including this terminal. Would I be able to edit the setting for this so it keeps the terminal up
When using the above image viewer, it would be easier for me to be able to close the viewer/image while displaying an image in fullscreen mode, by clicking on the middle mouse button, rather than right clicking and choosing "Exit full screen", then clicking on the cross in the corner of the window. This is similar to how Firefox can close tabs by middle-clicking with the mouse wheel.
Mouse function editing in GQview seems limited to controlling whether the scroll wheel pans up and down the picture, or moves to the next/previous picture. Any way I can edit the preferences file for GQview at .gqview/gqviewrc in order to achieve the above shortcut facility on my mousewheel, for this application? Or is anyone familiar with another Linux image viewer that does allow the mouse to be programmed in this way?
how I can set the top button on my mouse to be a shortcut for the desktop effect "Present Windows"? I have a Logitech MX900 mouse and the button I'm talking about is the one on the top that looks like two overlapping rectangles.See picture here: ImageBam - Fast, Free Image Hosting and Photo Sharing
I'm having this problem when i want to delete an icon on my desktop.The icon won't allow me to delete it as it will show error "The specified location is not supported. I attached a screenshot of my desktop. The file that i want to delete is "g on 192.168.0.182.volume". It was a link to my shared network.I've tried delete via terminal but when i viewed my desktop using "ls -a" , the file didn't show up.Or maybe easy solution is my removing my gnome-desktop
I have set up a server running ubuntu desktop, and I'm able to logon through remote desktop (win 7). The problem is that if I logon from computer 1 and open some programs, I don't see these programs when I logon from computer 2.I logon with the same user, so I find this strange. Is there some setting I have missed to be able to see the same from any computer (logon through remote desktop).
I have been trying to make a shortcut to my downloads folder on my desktop but I only seem to be able to create "link to downloads" folder. I thought this was just the same thing as a shortcut but when I run some programs from the folder they do not work correctly. They only work from the real 'downloads' folder and not the 'link to' folder
I download the new version of teamspeak since using the synapitcs install me an older version. my problem is to start the new teamspeak I have to go to the console and type ./starterscript_of_teamspeak Is there anyway to put a botton icon to make me this instead using the console to start it ?
I just installed Kubuntu with my ubuntu install via Synaptic, just to try it out, and so far it's working great, except for one thing: I have no idea how to make a desktop internet shortcut in Rekonq (The default web browser), and I've tried opening a shortcut I made in Firefox, but it opens it Kate! And when I changed what to open it with to Rekonq, I just got an error page in Rekonq!
I am using Lubuntu 10.10 and have installed my application that I need. What I need is a link to the desktop that will execute the program from the /usr/share/test directory. When I execute the program I need to use "Sudo" in order to run in. how would I add a symbolic link the desktop with the appropriate permission to run the executable without compromising security. I tried everything but cannot get it to execute under ubuntu:
I'm using Zorin OS 4 Lite, which is a variant of Lubuntu 10.10. For some unknown reason, the desktop shortcut on PCManFM is pointing to my home folder, so I have all my personal files covering my Desktop (kind of annoying to be honest ). And when I try to add a shortcut to the Desktop it adds it to my home folder instead. Seems like there's some kind of hard link between the Desktop shortcut in PCManFM menu and my home folder. However, I can't find where it is or how to fix this. Has anyone else had this problem? How do I fix this?
using the command ln -s ~/Desktop ~/.local/share/Trash I get this message.ln: creating symbolic link `/home/denish/.local/share/Trash': File exists But the link isn't in my desktop. So I tried accessing the Trash folder using cd. I cd into ~/.local/share then try the following command.cd Trash I get this message. bash: cd: Trash: No such file or directory When I type ls in the share folder I get the following.
gsettings-data-convert gvfs-metadata Trash
So the trash folder is in there but i can't access it. Why? Also I want a computer shortcut in my desktop like in windows where I can access all the folders from.
When ctrl alt d or the icon on the bottom left corner is pressed, it sometimes doesn't show the desktop and instead restores hidden windows. Is there a way to access the desktop directly, without only one shortcut ? I was also wondering how useful are these hidden windows (sometimes, the icon in the application bar is bar after being idle for a while).
I have created .NET 2.0 windows application setup with MySQL database on the XP and I have installed same setup on the Ubuntu.
