Ubuntu :: Translate Automatically Desktop Menus In Another Language?

Jun 10, 2010

I have 2 machines running under Lucid Lynx (one a 32-bit laptop, the other a 64-bit desktop). I created on both an account for my wife, and she wants a french environment. Now, when I installed the language packs (using Language Support from System), and I logged into her account for the first time, I selected "language = french" on the login screen, and on the desktop, there was a popup window asking me whether I wanted to translate the desktop menus to french. I said yes, and that happened.However, I did more or less the same thing on the laptop, and although the keyboard is french, and the date and so on is french, I didn't get this popup window asking for a menu translation. Changing the login language, and then changing again to french, didn't trigger this.

Is there a way (command line ?) to trigger this automatic menu translation tool?I think that the language packs are all installed.

Ubuntu :: Support For Language While Keeping English As Language Used To Display Desktop?

Mar 5, 2011

I have some music in another language, but when I open the songs in Banshee, their song names just come up as weird characters (like μ).I went to [System --> Administration --> Language Support] and installed support for that language, but the songs still come up like μ. (But in Nautilus, their proper names show).

I know the solution is to change my whole system language to that language, but I don't want to do that, as I am not very fluent in it. Is there any way to enable support for that language while keeping English as the language used to display my desktop?

Ubuntu :: No Menus Anywhere On Desktop

Apr 29, 2011

I installed 11.04 last night and, when I found that I was having a tough time working with unity I tried to follow some of the online advice and revert to the classic desktop.

Unfortunately when I logged out, the login screen didn't have the expected menu allowing me to choose between unity and classic gnome. Then I made a big mistake. I logged in and opened the system settings menu from the drop down menu in the top right hand side of the screen (at the foot of the menu listing logout, shutdown, hibernate etc.). In there I found an option allowing me to choose my desktop environment at login. Instead of choosing Gnome, like an idiot I chose 'user defined' as my preferred environment, hoping it would allow me to choose between unity and classic at login so that i could get used to unity gently.

Now that I've restarted I'm left without any menu at all anywhere. The only way I've been able to get access to firefox is by creating a launcher on the desktop, I can't open a terminal and I'm such a ubuntu newbie that I can't think of what else to try.

All my usual files are there on the desktop, just nothing giving me access to any programmes or options.

Ubuntu :: Customize The Desktop Menus?

Feb 12, 2010

How do I rearrange or otherwise customize the desktop menus and icons in the Netbook Remix? For example, I wish to combine the System Tools and System menus, and I want to rearrange the icons in the Favourites menu. There is no Control Panel (that I can find) which will let me do this.

Ubuntu :: Left And Top Menus And Desktop Not Displaying / Show That?

Nov 18, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu for several years, and wanted to try the netbook remix on my old Acer Aspire 5050 laptop.

I tried to install and switch from desktop 10.10 to netbook 10.10, and the home page and menus didn't display properly. I took this as being due to some conflict with an exiting bit of software (I use it as a LAMP server and dev machine, so it had a lot of stuff one it). Keen to try the netbook edition, and clean down my laptop, I installed in from scratch, formatting the HDD etc.

Anyway, the issue is still the same.

It is quite hard to describe what is displayed. The left menu is just empty, with no icons. The top bar is also empty. When you mouse over the left menu, blank pop-outs appear. Also, some icons are blank or mangled. Occasionally, when I close a dialogue, or do an alt-tab, the left menu icons appear, but only for a split second.

Anyway, screen dumps (reduced to half size) will explain this better, so here are a couple...

Top and left menus showing as empty semi transparent bars.

Same with an app running

with mouse over a left menu item, and a blank pop-out with black surround. code...

Ubuntu :: Desktop Menus Are Not Initially Visible After Boot Up

Jul 31, 2011

I'm experiencing a two or three problems with (I think) the Unity desk top. I'm not sure they're related so I'll post them as separate threads. Here's the second.

When I boot up Ubuntu the initial desktop related menus, which should appear at the left hand side of the top menu bar, are not visible until after I've launched and then minimised an application (doesn't appear to matter which application). Once I've done that the menus reappear.

Ubuntu :: Deleted All Desktop Menus / Panels - Cannot Open Terminal

Apr 30, 2011

I've basically gone and messed up my entire desktop. The curious (idiotic) me was experimenting with the desktop, and went and somehow deleted all the panels. After 3 days of frustration, I've been unable to recover any form of menu or panel. So far, I've tried restoring the defaults from the terminal. Unfortunately, I can't open a terminal window. I can run it using Ctrl+Alt+F2, but it refuses to open any windows or run any programs. Most commands give me some form of 'cannot open display.' I can't minimize windows without losing them so my workspace is a mess, I can't run nautilus as root so I can't access Synaptic, and the list basically goes on and on.

Debian Configuration :: Remove Item From Desktop Menus

Feb 7, 2016

I am using Wheezy 7.9, Gnome Classic, gdm3 . I have two menu instances of Master PDF Editor, one instance in the Graphics menu and the other in the Office category. I have tried using Alacarte to remove one of the instances. Alacarte shows that the item has been removed but in fact it still shows up in the menu. The procedure I used was to open Alacarte as root user, delete the item, close Alacarte and re-start the computer.

Ubuntu :: Language Support - Each User Can Select Their System Language When Login?

Nov 1, 2010

One computer .... three users .... three languages. How do you make that happen? User A speaks English and is happy with English. No problem. User B needs to use Chinese and would like the full system in Chinese. User C needs to use Thai and Chinese. They would prefer their menus to be in Thai and can use iBus for Chinese entry. How do you set up the system so that each user can select their system language when they login?

While installing Ubuntu 10.10 I chose the wrong language for my keyboard. I tried to fix this in keyboard preferences and it seemed to work.

Apr 14, 2010

i recently got a french msi wind U100x running on linux suse enterprise 10 sp1. (i am french and wanted a light netbook with french keyboard)i am totally new to linux and i believe that msi wind is not helping.because i am more used to english for settings, i set the main language to english, but it seems that it automatically reconfigures my keyboard mapping to english as well, so that azerty becomes qwerty.i reset it back to french, so now my keyboard is french, but so is the system.is there a way to differentiate keyboard from main user setting language?

Ubuntu :: XFCE Desktop To Load Up Automatically Without GDM

Jun 6, 2011

I'm making a Home Theatre OS, and I would like my XFCE ubuntu desktop to load up automatically without the use of GDM. This is because once remastered, the GDM cannot automatically log in until it's been set up to again. And the fact I removed all the GNOME icons which took up 50MB of space, so now the GDM interface is all glitchy xD

It basically involves removing GDM, logging in (the login and password are both 'media'), then having an automatic login command to run 'startx'. I've removed GDM on my test environment, and so far managed get in manually by logging in and typing startx. (On that note, do I even need a username and password? Can't I just use the password only for su?)

Ubuntu :: Translate GUI Actions To CL Code?

Jul 27, 2010

The main thing I want to know is: how to translate my GUI actions into command-line code. I want to know if there is a command that outputs all the commands being made by interaction with my GUI.Say, for example that I type this command and then open a file, the terminal would then print: "gnome-open /{path to file}".(The reason I ask is because I need to know a command to open with a non-default program. I have downloaded MiniCopier, so I want to add a launcher for it to my panel, by figuring out the code to launch it, but the default app to open ".jar" files is archive manager, rather than Java, so "gnome-open" doesn't do the trick. I've even changed the default to Java and still "gnome-open" uses archive manager, while double-clicking will use the new default=java. Weird...)

Ubuntu :: Won't Translate Gnome-gmail-notifier

Aug 31, 2010

I installed the gnome-gmail-notifier today and I noticed that it wasn't translated. Anyone who knows where to ask for a Swedish translation or how to contribute with one? It's a small application so I figure that it won't be much work to translate it. Not that I need to, but I like to have everything in the same language if possible.

Networking :: Does The WRT54G Nat Translate The ISP's DNS Numbers

Oct 3, 2010

I have 4 linux nat firewall boxes on 4 seperate networks all plugged into one WRT54G with the wireless function disabled. The WAN port is DHCP to my ISP modem (comcast.) WRT54G is set to gateway mode. WRT54G is not handing out IP's to clients, DHCP set to disable. Modem is a bridge and hands out dynamic internet routable ip addresses. All 4 linux boxes eth0 are static ip's and go to the WRT54g. Each Linux box is a dhcp nat firewalled router to my clients. Problem: DNS is not being resolved to my ISP from my clients. I can ping from a client to any where on the net or through my system. Tried placing the ISP DNS numbers in the /etc/resolv.conf file of servers but did not work.

Question does the WRT54G nat translate the ISP's DNS numbers also and to what? If so placing those numbers in the /etc/resolv.conf might solve the issue. Last bit of info. On one system there is 32 clients using win7 and dhcp. Some clients can surf all the time. Some never, some intermitently. IF I restart the server the above will applies to different clients. The same thing happens on the other 3 server systems. Attaching the Linux box directly to the modem and setting eh0 to DHCP I have no problems. I know it's not the linux boxes. It's placing the WRT54G between the modem and the Linux box that creates the loss of DNS resolution.
