I know in Fedora one can take screenshots during actual installation of the OS with Shift+Printscreen keys on the keyboard and then can access them as root in the folder /root/anaconda-screenshots. So how do I do the same while installing Ubuntu?
I have an issue with crontab that I can't resolve even though I searched the web like crazy. I tried to create a new cron job for taking a screenshot automatically every minute with scrot using "crontab -e" like so...
when I run it in my shell it does work fine and it seems to run with cron also because the log.txt file is modified every minute, however when I run it through cron the screenshots don't appear in the screenshots directory and nowhere else either.
Other jobs in the same crontab run very well. It doesn't seem to be a PATH issue because the paths are complete.
I want to take consecutive screenshots of a video using command line operations but I can't seem to find accurate documentation on different websites.Does anyone know how to do this using vlc, totem or another program?I've used ffmpeg as well, but then reencodes and splits the video file. I just want to take consecutive screenshots.
Im running netbook remix on a eeepc 1005ha. It is my only OS and Im loving it except for one obnoxious quirk. It randomly cuts text and randomly pastes it. If there is something in the clipboard, it will usually paste that, but just as often it will cut random text and paste that. The pastes occur when the cursor focus jumps back to the location of the cursor on the screen. I dont know a better way to phrase that, but thats what it is doing. Say... I put the cursor over the word "pastes" in the paragraph above... even though Im typing in this paragraph, the focus will "jump" to the cursors physical locale (the word "pastes") and then paste whatever is in the clipboard. If the cursor is outside of the textbox, the page will jump to the bottom.
This behavior occurs across programs and in any place text can be entered. I can find no rhyme or reason for it... it just... happens. Sometimes even when Im away from my computer, so its not like Im hitting some key on accident. I have loved everything about this ubuntu distro, but this issue is just toany obnoxious. Writing psych papers on this thing is going to be near impossible if I dont get this fixed before I go back to school.
Am running Ubuntu NBR as the sole OS on my Dell Mini 9. Switched over in March to 9.10 NBR. Everything worked fine.Upgraded to 10.04 when it was released. It's awesome EXCEPT for this busy cursor thing.As soon as I log in, all the time my cursor is the spinning wheel of busyness.... It works just as a normal cursor would - my computer also does not seem to be slower due to any operations.If I open an application, the cursor will behave as usual within the window but if I more my cursor to the title bar or switch out of the application, the "busy cursor" resumes.
I'm running 10.04 with compiz under gnome, and I'm having trouble getting my screenshots to capture properly. Currently they only display my wallpaper and not any windows or panels. I tried using the module in the custom settings manager but no key-binds seem to work, well either that or the plugin is failing to load when I initialise it.
I do not have a mac, but I've used one and really like the one feature of the screenshots. Specifically, Command+Shift+3 which saves the screenshot to the desktop without having to open a program or anything like that.
Is there any way to do this in KDE? Ksnapshot is nice, but I'd like not to have to click the button every time.
I've tried the command line Import and it always gives me some X server not configured error or something, so that's not an option.
I sometimes take screen shots of websites in Firefox. The easiest way is to use one of the many extensions, e.g. Screengrab. However, I have discovered that, when trying to take a screen shot of the entire web page, the lower part of the page is not captured. This happens on WordPress sites and, curiously, on Mozilla's own results pages. Other pages seem to be unaffected. However, on Chromium, it works perfectly.
I have received an email from Indian Railways which says that a screenshot has been included. And for mobile password use the link provided on site. When you click on link provided for activation of your account or try to log in for very first time on irctc site after registration enter the password provided in mail, for mobile verification password click on the link provided on right hand side on same page. Screen shot attached for your ready reference. However I don't find any screenshot. On my 32-bit laptop I have debian-squeeze. Is installation of some special package needed for viewing.
I enabled my SysRq key and now can't take screenshots. I have no idea why this happened. I enabled it so that I could have a failsafe way to shut the system down in case of a failure and then this happened.
I tried many different ways to get a screen shot (gnome's tool, gimp, compiz plugin, xwd, import) and in all of them the screenshot was filled with jagged colored bars. I tried both with and without compiz and the same thing happened. I'm using gnome with fedora 11.
I created a kickstart file and put it on a floppy. I have installed several times to refine the process and confused. I am not sure if the kickstart file is even being used by grub. I specified
autostep --autoscreenshot The install STILL asks me all those questions I was trying to avoid by doing autostep in the first place, and /root/anaconda-screenshots coes not exist.
I specified linux = hd:fd0:/ks.cfg
as a Grub command line option. I got that line off a forum, so it may be inaccurate. Anyone know if that is correctd? If I screw that up, shouldn't anaconda complain about file-not-found? Are the screenshots only applicable to graphics mode or also to text mode? (I have been using text mode, assuming text file screen dumps would appear in that subdirectory...)
multiple issues started happening on a partition of mine. (probably whole installation and i haven't noticed since most of my files are on that partition)the most important one is that a certain folder appears to be empty even though it isn't. (screenshot "issue1")
the second issue is that files that are no longer on on the root folder of the partition (for example, lynx5.jpg on the screenshot "issue2") appear to be there. on "issue2" screenshot, it's the lynx image and the Gr_trees folder. removing them by deleting them doesn't work. moving there somewhere else makes them temporary gone - they reappear on reboot though. (the screenshots seem to be automatically converted to jpg when uploaded, if there is a problem you can find them here as well:[URL]..
edit : even though it's not the normal way to solve a problem : if reinstallation is definitely going to solve the problem, i have nothing against it.

I have a Windows 7 installation with a boot partition on the RAID. I also want to have a dual boot with openSUSE 11.2 but I don't know how to set correctly my partitions. I have some unallocated space next to the Windows C: partition. When I try to install openSUSE it makes a suggestion to create some partitions that i don't need and don't want, and even doesn't mount them. It also creates a / 80GB, /boot 36MB, swap 2GB and /home 20GB partitions, so I am in lack of free space.
I don't know how to create screenshots during installation. Maybe I'll try to reinstall later and pick some screens in english, because my system language is bulgarian.
I have ubuntu install on a 500 gb drive. It says i have 409 gb free. I've been able to account for 40 gb, but when I try to check the folder proc, it lists 128 tb. How much space is this folder actually taking up?
