Ubuntu :: Mouse Follows Newly Created Windows With Compiz

Feb 6, 2011

I have an Intel setup with 64bit Ubuntu. I have an NVIDIA graphics card. When I used compiz, I found that my mouse would follow newly created windows. (e.g, I would bring up terminal and if I hit F1, the mouse would move to the upper right of the screen by itself. I have since turned off compiz which resolves the issue. where I can turn it off/on.

Ubuntu Servers :: Newly Created User's SSH Shell Looks Different ?

Jan 25, 2011

I am running Ubuntu Server 10.04 and I just created a new user. Everything works great except the new user's SSH shell can not do certain things.

For example, I cannot arrow up for previous commands on the new user. I just get "^[[A" when I try that. (I can do this on root.)

It also looks different on root versus the user, look:

Ubuntu :: Cannot Mount Newly Created LUKS Filesystem

Jun 24, 2011

I just created a LUKS filesystem following these instructions. Everything seemed okay at first. It mounted with no problem and I moved some files there. I then unmounted it and remounted it to see if I would need to use a special command. It mounted right away and even allowed access to normal users. So, I rebooted to see if anything would change. Before I go on I should say that my partitioning scheme is weird. Not knowing any better I 'upgraded' to 11.04 when my update manager told me a new version was out. This didn't go well and I had to do a fresh install to put 10.10 back on my machine. After this the way it partitions the drive has been weird. What I had was /dev/sda1 which has my installation on it including /home. But, where it gets weird is /dev/sda2 would not manually mount. Looking at the disk in gparted it showed /dev/sda2 THEN under that, as if they were sub partitions or something, I had sda6 and sda7. I had been using 6 and 7 for various things and they mounted fine, so I decided to encrypt 7. After reboot I only have sda1. Everything else shows up as unallocated and ever way I try to mount I get device does not exist.

I only did the procedure for sda7 but 6 has been affected as well. There is no longer a sda2 the way there was before. This always bothered me anyway since I wanted sda2 for my /home but it wanted to call it sda6 and put it under sda2 like I said, I could never fix that, now this.

Ubuntu :: Set Default File Permissions For Newly Created Directories?

Nov 18, 2010

I'm just wondering: I know that umask sets the default file permissions for files, however I want to know if there is anyway to set default file permissions for newly created directories.

For example, I want my user to create new directories that anyone can access and modify (777) but I want the new files the user creates to be 755 (read by everyone, written only by user).

Is this possible?

Debian Configuration :: Newly Created Users Can't Login?

Aug 27, 2010

i've written a bash script to add new users to our system. the script works so I won't bother you all about that. when a new user is created with it, they can immediately login to our domain from any terminal, which is good. However, the newly created user is unable to login to debian at all, and so cannot access the server. when attempting to do so, they get a message like "the system administrator has disabled your account". This is a good thing really as normal users have no need for debian login, but I do need to add a few admin users who will need direct access to the server machine.

/usr/sbin/useradd -g smbusers -d /home/$username -s /bin/false -m $username
passwd $username
smbpasswd -a $username

This is the code I'm using to add the user. The rest of my script is just a wrapper and GUI. I figure the login shell may have something to do with it, so I tried changing the shell of a user to the default /bin/bash. This resulted in the user being able to login - sort of. Gnome doesn't load though, and there's a cascade of errors across the screen about things failing to save or load settings. mostly stuff like nautilus, X, and gnome. the desktop background is black and there's no interface. Logging in with a previously existing account works fine though. Clearly I have an issue somewhere.

Debian :: Change Default Permissions For Newly Created Files?

Jan 19, 2011

I'm new to Debian. I've read the documentation on this but it is too heavy for a new user to understand. I would like to change the default permissions for newly created files/directories.

I want all newly created files by 'user1' to have the default permissions of:
1. "owner can read and write"
2. "group can read and write"
3. "other can read only"

Permission 1 and 3 are already default. But I would like number 2 to be default as well. (the current default for group is read only).

Fedora Servers :: Mounting NFS Share On Newly Created Directory Failed

Mar 12, 2010

Running NFS on Fedora 10. Exports fine. I tested it locally. I tested the NFS configuration by trying to access the exported directory from my local machine, before testing it from a remote machine. While logged in as root, I created a new directory "/mnt/nfstest".

Then I mounted the NFS share at the new directory I created:
[root@eric root]# mount -t nfs localhost:/mnt/nfs /mnt/nfstest

When I tried to mount on the remote client:
[root@frank root]# mount -t nfs eric:/mnt/nfs /mnt/nfstest

After a while I got:
# mount eric:/mnt/nfs /mnt/nfstest
mount.nfs: mount system call failed

I tried strace but wasn't sure what I was looking for, but I've attached the results as a .odt file.

CentOS 5 :: How To Change Owner Of Copied Files To Newly Created Users

Jan 29, 2010

CentOS 5.4 install, likewise open standard install (For active directory authentication).I have a license service which requires a license.txt be in the users home directory.The group owner for license.txt must be the same as the license service. Whenever a new domain user logs in, it creates the all the appropriate files but the group owner for license.txt is the users domain group. My current workaround seems like more effort than it's worth, is there another way to get this process solved easier/more secure?

- copy the license.txt into /etc/skel

- created a script to check for the presence of license.txt, check it's permissions and change them if necessary

- gave the domain's group sudo [nopasswd] access to the script (the script is not writable)

- execute the script in /etc/bashrc

Programming :: Detecting Newly Created Folders / Files On Local File System?

Apr 16, 2010

Using C++, I want to process sub-folders on my home folder sequentially each with a special naming format and containing some binary files in it:

Code:
1/
2/
3/
4/
5/
6/
...

Give above folders, I will process files in 1/ at first, 2/ at second, 3/ at third, and so on.

For some n/ folder, if I realize that n/ actually does not exist in local file system, I do not want to wait for it. Hence I will keep processing (n+1)/ folder, and so on.

However, when processing some (n+m)/ folder, previously not processed n/ folder may have been created on local file system. In this case, I do not want to miss processing it, but somehow detect its creation and process it. After processing n/ folder, I want to continue from (n+m+1)/.

Security :: Group Write Access For Newly Created Files / Directories Without Changing Umask

Apr 3, 2009

I have several directories, each owned by root and a group of the same name,By setting the sgid bit, I made sure that newly created files and directories are owned by the correct group, and that directories have the sgid bit set too.On each newly created directory or file, the permissions are set to 755. This is because this is the default umask, and I cannot change a users umask. I actually only want files created below a particular directory to have group write access, inheriting this behaviour to newly created directories properly.I'm not on samba or NFS, I have to do this for SSH users.The filesystem is ext3.I started to fool around with ACLs, but couldn't find what I was looking for.

General :: Compiz Stops Updating Windows On A Multi-head System - Keyboard And Mouse Still Alive?

Dec 8, 2010

I am running Fedora F14 on an Intel I3 cpu w/4Gb memory and plenty of disk. I have two displays connected to the Gigabyte Motherboard, one of the HDMI connector, and one on a DVI connector. I run Gnome. When Compiz is enabled things work fine for a while, meaning hours or days. Then the displays will "freeze" to the point where the clock stops updating. The system itself is still running programs, services, and the mouse and keyboard work. The mouse cursor will move around, but nothing can be clicked upon. If a terminal was the open window, typing on the keyboard does not do anything, nor does ctrl-backspace or whatever it is to terminate X windows. The keyboard does allow me to press ctrl-alt-F2 to switch to one of the base consoles. Once there I can type to my hearts content. I can kill off my logged in Gnome session through the console, and I can shutdown the system in a controlled manner.

It is as if all of the windows stop updating. For example, I play music through Amarok. An hour after I stop using the system but letting the music play the screens will do their lockup. The clock will stop, and Amarok will stop updating which song it is playing. It continues to play each song in the playlist, but the Amarok window shows what was playing at the time that the clock stopped. I've also had this happen to me while using Yumex, where it would stop updating the screen while installing programs, but the programs do get installed. With Compiz off I don't have this problem.

The version of Compiz I am using is currently 0.8.6-3. It is running on Gnome 2.32.0-2, with a Linux kernel of 2.6.35.9-64. It has happened with earlier versions of these programs. I am using the graphics processing the Intel i3 chip to the motherboard connectors. The freeze generally happens at some random time while I am not actively using the system. It has happened to me while doing simple things like programming through an IDE. The really strange thing to me is that the cursor will move around on the screen after everything else stops updating.

Ubuntu :: X11 Mouse Theme Vs Compiz

May 4, 2010

When I try to change my mouse cursor theme through gnome-appearance-properties, my cursor only changes to the selected themes in only certain situations, but is the default most of the time. Due to some vision problems, it is hard for me to see the default cursor, and would prefer a size 24 DMZ-Black theme for the pointer.

I've been searching for some solutions, and it looks like Compiz has taken over some duties regarding the mouse cursor and how it looks. That's fine, I love Compiz, I use the screen magnifier and zoom all the time - so turning Compiz off is not an option.

Most solutions I've found call for changing the mouse theme in compiz. However, most of those posts are at least 2 years old, and my current version of ccsm doesn't have an option to change the mouse theme. I found 'cursor_size' and 'cursor_theme' in gconf-editor (apps > compiz > general > allscreens > options), but making those keys match those found in (desktop > gnome > peripherals > mouse) has brought me no success.

I'm using Lucid Lynx with all updated packages, upgraded from Karmic.

Ubuntu :: Switch Between Applications Using The Mouse But Without Compiz?

Jun 28, 2010

I am using a netbook low on computer power. I don't have compiz installed and I don't want it.But I want to be able to switch between applications using the mouse.Expose style would be great but performance is paramount so if they were just icons or something that would be fine. is it possible to use the mouse to trigger alt-tab?(my netbook is often hooked up to my TV so keyboard is not always in reach)In Kubuntu I just had to move the pointer to the top left corner of the screen and an expose style effect would happen. But I believe that was compiz and I have moved to Ubuntu and found it much snappier.

Ubuntu :: Side Scrolling Mouse & Compiz?

Aug 15, 2010

I have a 4-way logitech side scrolling mouse and had it set up that (button7) which was left would rotate my desktop cube left, and the same with (button6) which was right. Now with my new motherboard I need to plug in USB, and left and right side scroll is captured as the same as left and right on the directional pad. How can I re-assign my mouse as button 6 & 7?

Does anyone know why scroll left and right are set as keyboard left and right? Does anyone know how to fix it, or reassign the buttons?

Ubuntu :: Compiz Show Mouse Radius

May 20, 2011

I just wanted to share something with you all. If this belongs somewhere else let me know.I got the idea from this thread.I wanted the show mouse effect to not rotate around my mouse (just a preference)and have the emitters directly under my cursor. So by editing two files it gave me the desired effect to an extent.

1. Just in case back up your compiz settings.
2. Open a terminal and type - sudo nautilus . It'll ask for your admin password.
3. The file manager should now be open, go to /usr/share/compiz/showmouse.xml copy the file and rename the copy to showmouse.xml.bak.
4. Open showmouse.xml with the text editor.
5. Scroll down to the bottom and look for the "radius" section. Go to the <min>10</min> entry and change it to 2. Save.
6. Go to /usr/lib/compiz/libshowmouse.so copy the file and rename the copy to libshowmouse.so.bak.
7. Open the file with Ghex and search for the string radius on the right side of the search box.
8. It'll look like a jumble of words, but look after the word radius and find <min>10</min> change to 2. Save.
9.Compiz should now disable itself.
10. Reboot and re-enable Compiz and try out the show mouse plugin, it should now allow you to use a smaller radius.

Ubuntu :: Compiz-Fusion - Turns To A Blank Screen Of White With A Mouse On It

Jan 6, 2010

Just installed Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit on my computer dual booting with 9.10 32bit. Was hoping to move to 64 bit to get full use out of my RAM and CPU. The issue is that when I tried to run Compiz-Fusion that I got from the Ubuntu software repos that came with 9.10 nothing would change. I tried to make a 4 desktop layout with a cube like I have on the 32 bit OS and nothing happens. So I right click on the Compiz icon and select the "reload windows manager" tap in the drop down menu and every time it turns to a blank screen of white with a mouse on it. I can move the mouse and I can even use some of the new settings I changed but I cant see anything else besides a mouse and the white screen. I feel as thou I am using a version of Compiz that is not compatible with 9.10 64 bit.

Fedora :: Openoffice.org Ignores Compiz Settings For Mouse Focus?

Jun 4, 2010

Openoffice.org apparently ignores the window manager altogether for questions of focus. This combined with opening lots of little dialogs and menus is making it almost unusable. (Over at openoffice.org, this has been answered with (essentially) "I use click to focus, so raising on focus is normal, so I'm putting at the lowest possible priority because it has nothing to do with usability.") The problem is that I use focus following the mouse, with click to raise. This is very convenient for copying between two windows and saves me a lot of time and energy, as I have to do this quite often. Current behavior, however, causes Openoffice.org to raise any window you happen to pass over, thus hiding the floating toolbar or dialog box that you were trying to click on. Worse, as the window you brushed by has gained focus, in most cases, the toolbar or dialog disappears entirely. The only solution is to move everything around so as to have a path to get to your toolbar/dialog without touching another window, or to minimize all but one openoffice document. Is there anyway to make Openoffice.org usable with this setting?
