Ubuntu :: Change Terminal Colors After A Change Root?
Jan 31, 2011
Now I know that in order to change the colors in your terminal you have to play around with ~/.bashrc But the effects don't stay in place after a change-root is taken affect. It just reverts to black. Is there any way I can change that too in .bashrc?
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix on my Gateway LT3103u. I noticed shortly into using it that it has a graphics bug every so often. Especially when I change the background image. Everything will change to a warped mix of colors and pixels. Everything is affected. My mouse, the bar at the top of the screen, text and all. My netbook runs on an AMD Athlon 64-bit processor with ATI Radeon X1270 HyperMemory up to 256MB graphics.
So far I have tried reinstalling, and even the 64bit desktop edition which had the same problem. Ive noticed that it freaks out when i scroll too quick, when changing background images, and on certain websites. Then other times its completely random. When it happens it looks similar to these: [URL]
After hours of online searching, I still haven't find a right answer to my question. How can I change the color of the popup menu, the color of the menus that appear when you click on the icons on the right side of the desktop and of the firefox menus.I have a custom theme.
In 10.04 Lucid my Nautilus scroll bars are white. The scroll bar slider (the icon that can be moved up and down with the cursor to scroll the window) is the exact same shade of white and the slider outline is pale grey. The lack of color contrast makes the slider hard to see. Is there a preference item somewhere that lets me change this color scheme?
I expected to find it in System >> Preferences >> Appearance >> Theme but I don't think there's anything there about the scroll bars. I think my monitor might be more contrasty than most, which is probably exacerbating the problem, but this is what I have to work with. I would rather fix it by changing a system setting than replacing the monitor.
fedora 13, Gnome, with the exception of Kdenlive... I need to change to match my gnome theme... I work in a dark environment so I use a dark theme... nearly impossible to use kdenlive as is...
If I remember correctly there was a utility in KDE to make gnome apps look nice, but can't find anything like that for gnome, can't find kcontrol in safe repos for some reason, maybe I'm looking for the wrong thing
How do I change the ugly default orange color for the loading bars and stuff? I know how to change things with the window manager, but that only changes the frames and "min, max, close" buttons. I like everything about the theme I have, and the way the window manager is set, except it uses that ugly orange color when things are loading or downloading. How do I change that part? Can I change only that part by itself?
No Matter what I do and change in gnome-tweak-tool, the window title bar won't change to anything else, won't go smaller, even the downloaded themes won't change the bar, and I cant seem to find the needed codes in xml to change them. photo is attached to illustrate the things I need to changeI need to change their size in the first place, and maybe change them to like ambiance or whatever. i've seen many guides on the net, and It still don't find the neeeded solution
I mainly use debian jessie , recently i have installed daragora as my second os to get a feel of gnu/linux . the problem is that dragora uses bash , and it's commands are different from debian jessie terminal is there a way that i can use the same commands here in dragora?
I created a chroot jail in /SECURITY/Jail. But when I used the command 'sudo chroot /SECURITY/Jail' to enter the fake root, I got an error message likegroups: cannot find name for group ID 105groups: cannot find name for group ID 119.
Accidentally I changed the ownership of all the directories under / to my own instead of root:root. Now I am unable to use sudo and many bad things are happening. Is there a way to revert the changes or change the permissions again to root:root or make sudo work ?
I'm very new to Linux, i'm running Ubuntu and i'm trying to install a program. In the instructions it says "Check that you ARE NOT root, never run similar tools as root! just change file permissions". How do i check if i'm root or what am I supposed to do here?
Basically i have a 1TB USB HDD that is formatted HFS+ (i used to use it attached to a hacked AppleTV, it has loads of media on it).
Appletv wasn't great, so now i have a lovely acer revo running XBMC Live, and it's blooming great. my problem is my USB drive mounts, but i think it's read-only, as i am struggling to sftp new files to it. so my question is:
How do i make the drive writeable?
I've read things about disabling journling, an fstab file, chown in terminal, but im really struggling.
In temrinal if i navigate to the /media folder and run ls -al, i get this: (note the usb drive is called AppleTV)
How to make it read-write? i'm happy for it to have full write access by root, or all users or whatever. im sure its 1 line in terminal!
i wanted to change the size of the terminal like so whenever i open it up it will be fullscreen so i went at preferences and changed the size thing at the left (i think it was columns) to 700.Now whenever i open up a terminal the whole screen freezes and it logs me out.
I just installed ubuntu 10.04 on our laptop. for convenience I also installed the dutch (gnome) translation and selected Dutch as the default language so all menu's and localisation is suitable for the Netherlands and the misses understands stuff. However I noticed that the gnome terminal is also translated so all output from bash is now in Dutch too. This is really inconvenient since I have been using bash in english on fedora and ubuntu for 10 years now. So is there a way to reconfigure gnome term (bash) to default back to english and leave the GUI in Dutch?
Editing the profile in gnome-terminal has absolutely no effect on the appearance. I can change background color, transparency, image, etc. in the profile edit window, save changes,and the _actual_ terminal appearance does not change at all. I did make sure to switch to the edited profile after editing -- to no avail.The default navy-on-light-blue isn't bad, but the light-green default for executables is effectively completely invisible on the light blue background.Is this a bug? Or does someone have a workaround?FWIW, gnome-terminal in 9.10 was completely customizable
