Ubuntu :: Get Another OS That Is Installed On Computer On Another Side Of The Cube?

Jul 9, 2010

I've been playing around with the cube in CCSM and I've seen some videos on ..... that have windows XP on one side of the cube and on the other three sides, it still has Ubuntu. I was wondering how i would do that? If it makes a difference, I wanted to do that with Vista instead of XP.

Ubuntu :: Make New Icons Automatically Add To Right Side Instead Of Left Side Of Desktop?

Dec 18, 2010

If a file gets created in the user's Desktop folder, or if a drive is added to the machine and a Desktop icon is correspondingly created, they will by default appear on the left side of the desktop (unless, in the case of the latter, the specific drive has been created before and dragged to the right side, in which case GNOME will remember to put it in the same place).

Because I have a terminal window embedded onto my Desktop in the top left corner and occupying most of the screen), I keep my icons on the right side of the Desktop instead of the left (Mac style) - Any time I add a new drive or a file is sent to the Desktop, however, I have to kill the terminal window to be able to click on the icon, then drag it back to the right side, then restart the terminal.

Is there any way to tweak GNOME so that these icons are added from the top right corner and down instead of from the top left, automatically?

Ubuntu :: Enabled Desktop Cube In Unity - Side / Top Bar Disappeared

Apr 30, 2011

I just upgraded to unity and everything is fine. Then I accidentally enabled Desktop Cube and Cube Rotation. Suddenly, the top part of windows that you normally use to drag the window or close it etc. started disappearing. In a panic, I rebooted. Upon reboot I found myself in an even bigger mess than I could have imagined. Not only did this fail to fix the problem previously mentioned, it also caused the sidebar and the ubuntu bar at the top to disappear. Desktop icons still show, and my cursor is fully functional, but other than that, my system is unusable.

Ubuntu Installation :: Uninstalling 9.10 If Installed "side By Side"

Feb 11, 2010

I've gotten rid of the GRUB bootloader and restored the default windows bootloader , and i have also deleted all other partitions that windows was not installed on but only problem is that when i first installed ubuntu 9.10 i chose to install it side by side instead of on a separate partition so now im convinced i still have some ubuntu remains on my pc. any idea on how to remove it?

because my current partition that windows runs on still shows 80gb of 136gb is free but before i installed ubuntu 136 gb was free so im sure i still have some ubuntu left. how do i fully get rid of ubuntu if i chose to install ubuntu "side by side" instead of on a separate partition? I am running windows vista sp1 on hp dv4

Ubuntu :: Edit Side Bar Icons In 10.10 Net Ed

Feb 9, 2011

I have been testing Ubuntu 10.10 netbook edition. It uses a sidebar where some regular functions can be activated.

I have searched the normal places to configure the icons within this toolbar and I am yet to find a method.

I am still undecided to whether I like the format being used to Kubuntu, but it does seem more intuative.

Ubuntu :: Get Custom Icons To Appear In Side Pane?

Jun 23, 2010

I figured out how to give folders the icon of my choosing (say, by digging through to /usr/share/icons/Humanity/places).

But, if I drag my newly decorated folder to the side pane so I can have easy access to it, it becomes an ordinary folder icon again.

I've looked through the options in gconf-editor for Nautilus, and there does not seem to be an obvious fix there. It should be doable, because if you drag, say, the Music or Photos folder to the side pane it maintains its custom icon.

How can I keep my chosen icon on a folder when I bring it to the side pane?

Ubuntu :: Arrange Icons On Right Side Of Desktop?

Apr 8, 2011

I'm on 10.10. way to align the icons on the desktop to the right side instead of the left? When I click "Organize Desktop By Name" everything ends up on the left by default, I want to have it default to the right instead. Doesn't matter how complicated the solution is, I can do it as long as someone can give me the basic instruction. it's really only because I have an awesome desktop background, and the best part is covered with icons.

General :: Having Access To Mac Side Of HDD - Ubuntu Installed Through Parallels

Oct 27, 2010

I'm having trouble mounting my mac partition of my HD on the linux side while it's running on Parallels(a VM for mac). I've tried using the GUI and the terminal with no success... Honestly I have no clue what I'm doing. I've tried to follow other forums about it, but the stuff out there is out dated, I mean like 2006-2007... I'm running Snow Leopard osx 10.6.4. It shows "Failed to receive share list from server" when I click on the mac partition in the network GUI, to try and veiw the files. When I try to mount through terminal, it says "No such file or directory."

General :: Ubuntu - Play Two Or More Videos Side By Side In A Synchronized Fashion

May 10, 2010

I have two (or more) video files that I want to play side by side. I could do that simply by opening them in two seperate windows, but that would also seperate all the controls (play/pause/forward/...). I want to play them in a synchronized fashion so that pause/forwarding/... works on both videos simultaneously so that they always stay at the same timecode and they don't go out of sync. How would I accomplish that in Linux?

This is needed for viewing only, so compositing them into a new video file first should be avoided if possible, but if there isn't an easy way to do that, I welcome answers doing it with composition as well.

Ubuntu Installation :: Setup A Dual Boot System With XP Running Side By Side On Thinkpad T41?

Jan 28, 2010

have been trying to setup a dual boot system with ubuntu and XP running side by side on my Thinkpad T41.tried it a few times and always causes the same problem. i have 40 gig HDD, on which i create a 13 gig NTFS partition and leave the rest as free space. then install XP on the NTFS partition. no problems.

then i boot from the ubuntu disk (9.10 Karmic) and install using the "use free space" option at the partition section. ubuntu installs ok, and boots fine from GRUB 2.0. BUT when i select the XP option from GRUB's list, it starts to boot XP, i get the standard XP loading screen for three seconds and then it crashes to a blue screen critical problem, and restarts the system. when i then boot from the xp cd and go into recovery mode CHKDSK will not recognise the disk, and DISKPART shows one HDD at 35 gig which it cannot access.

this means i cant run FIXBOOT and get my xp install running again. every time i do this process it produces the same problem. tried at first with xp installed on whole HDD, and reducing the xp partition size. killed XP. then tried ubuntu first and xp second - but this caused the same inaccessible disk problem - xp would not recognise the partitions and would not install. so i slipstreamed my XP install disk to SP2 hoping this would make it recognise the partitions, but no luck there. so had to format all and repartition the 13 gig NTFS for xp. installed xp again without difficulty but ubuntu install killed my xp in the same way.

Ubuntu :: Finding A Software To Compare Two Documents Side By Side?

Sep 23, 2010

I'm looking for a software to compare two documents (for example .odt) side by side or highlighted in graphical way. I want to do the same as Word 2010 Compare Documents (see this: Microsoft Word 2010: View Two Documents Side By Side). I found in OpenOffice something a bit similar that, see in <Edit> -->> <Compare documents>, but it's not a good visual presentation. I'm looking for a software who give me the possibility to see the differences between two documents side by side, or highlighted.

Ubuntu Installation :: Side By Side Upgrade - Copying APT Repository?

Jun 5, 2011

I'm wondering how much of my currently installed packages I can transfer to a new system...I have a HDD split in two. I have 10.4 on one half (/dev/sda6) - my working system for the last year or so since my last upgrade - and I have just installed 11.04 on the other half (/dev/sda. I wanted to check out the new version rather than upgrading. note I have my home folder and all stored data on other drives (zfs mirrored disks) - the boot disk is mostly OS related... I can overwrite /dev/sda8 with impunity as long as /dev/sda6 is intact....

What I want to do is capture the wide variety of packages I have installed on the old version and install them onto the new system - without using the dist-upgrade mechanism... I've had it fail too many times leaving me with a complete rebuild being required... is this (partially) possible or have too many core packages changed? I was especially thinking of something like [URL]

to obtain the list:

dpkg --get-selections | awk �$2 ~ /^install$/ {print $1}� > installedpackages

to reinstall:

cat installedpackages | xargs sudo aptitude install -y

another path would be to clone the entire /dev/sda6 onto /dev/sda8, boot into the duplicate and dist-upgrade that

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing 9.10 Side By Side With Kubuntu 9.04?

Mar 31, 2010

I did a search but for this topic and I thought it would be discussed quite a bit, did not get any results. Maybe I did not use the correct words? Anyhow, I am running Kubuntu 9.04 and wish to switch to Ubuntu Karmic 9.10. I do still want to keep Kubuntu 9.04 as a boot up option temporarily in case I have major issues with Ubuntu. Ill also need to know how to get rid of Kubuntu after Im sure all is well with Ubuntu. Finally, there are a ton of boot options (different kernels Ive upgraded to) in Grub when Kubuntu boots up. How do I get rid of those? I also have a Windows XP partition that I boot into occasionally.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Side-by-Side Hiccup?

Aug 10, 2010

Just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my home laptop after testing it (and loving it) on my work desktop just this morning. First time Ubuntu user and looking to be a long one, too.Anyways, I used the "install side-by-side" on both machines, but my laptop, with Vista, has a weird side effect. At the boot screen, I chose Windows Vista and it booted the recovery tool (I forgot the exact name). I was worried at first, but when I chose the actual Windows Recovery option below it to attempt to fix it, it booted Vista. So it seems in the process of partitioning the HDD for Ubuntu I somehow switched what each partition boots. Is there a way to correct this?

I would like to know how I can view two windows side by side on the same desktop (ex. have two openoffice files side by side) and be able to work on both of them at the same time rather than having to click back and forth from window to window. I have seen this done on people that have MAC computers is there anyway to do this on Ubuntu?

Ubuntu :: Installed Gnome-Shell In Natty - Missing Icons?

Just installed gnome-Shell in Natty Narwhal. the only problem know is that all the icons have disappeared and the theme has gone to a more "basic" look. No matter what desktop session I choose (Unity, Gnome-Shell, Classic) I can't change anything back since the "appearance" menu seems to have been removed while gnome-shell was being installed.
