Software :: Gnome With Associated Applications For Registered File Types / Cant See Apps From "open With" Menu When Right Click To A File?

Oct 6, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 with Gnome 2.30.

I remove the applications which i don't use from main-menu. Now i can not see them from "open with" menu when i right click to a file.

Also it will be very nice if Ubuntu can show me on the "open with" menu the possibilities of applications which can open properly the file type which i want to open. I try to configure with ubuntu-tweak's "file type manager" but it is not possible to configure all of file types. I think Ubuntu's applications must to know which applications has to show for which file types. And i don't know how to do that. I need an application like this : url

I get a new user from the same OS, and i see that the same problem still there... For example many many compressed files, audio or graphic files are not associated with vlc or gimp.

I try to configure from system files of gnome but it is very complicated.

Ubuntu :: Applications Ignoring Mime Types?

May 24, 2011

Files downloaded with Firefox, Chromium, Miro etc. will not open correctly. Clicking to open the file (e.g. jpg or ogg) should result in the file opening with eog or audacious. Results - from Nautilus this works correctly, however from other applications the result is a Nautilus window. Placing a file 'test.torrent' on the desktop and using terminal to do

gnome-open test.torrent
xdg-open test.torrent
results in the same behaviour. However, simply clicking the file in Nautilus opens it in Deluge (correct behaviour).

OpenSUSE :: Sound Works Only For Some Types Of Applications?

Mar 9, 2010

I have used it for some times but never went behind basic use to use Internet, save files, write documents with OpenOffice...

I just installed the 11.2 version in 64-bit. I previously used a 11.1 version, and on which sounds worked fine.

I do get the login and logout jingle, and CDs play fine as well.

My problem occurs when I try to watch a video on Internet, so with FlashPlayer, and also when using Skype: I get neither the notification sounds, and a test call tells me I have a problem with the audio device.

When I point my cursor on the "sound" icon on my control board, it tells me the sound is at 0% even though it works for the above-listed tasks.

Here is what my computer has (from "system configuration"), including the last two lines I get when I click the "advanced" option:

HDA VIA VT82xx (VT1708 Analog)
HDA VIA VT82xx (VT1708 Digital)
HDA ATI HDMI, ATI HDMI (HDMI audio output)
HDA VIA VT82xx, VT1708 Digital(IEC958(S/PDIF) Digital audio output)

Everything has this same preset configuration: notifications, video, etc.

Fedora :: Changing Associated Applications To File Types?

Apr 17, 2009

What file where holds the information for file opening application preferences?

I have Fedora Core 10 ( with openoffice 3.0 installed.All of the OpenOffice programs show in Applications>Office drop down window and work fine.

Problem is this: If I double click on a calc spreadsheet file (.ods) then the archive manager wants to open it, and I have to right click and manually select scalc as the program to use. If I double click on an odt text file (.odt), okular opens it. I have to right click and select swriter.

If -- BTW -- I click on an excel (.xls) file, calc will start and open the file.

I would like to change these file application preferences, but can't find where to do it or what file to edit to break the current preferences.

Applications :: Install "qemu-launcher" Via "Add / Remove Applications"

Mar 8, 2010

I get to my specific problem, I'm running Xubuntu 9.10 (karmic) on a Playstation 3 (PPC). I am attempting to install "Qemu-launcher".

1. Tried to install "qemu-launcher" via "Add / Remove Applications". it gave me an error about conflicting packages, and deferred me to Synaptic Package Manager.

2. Tried to install "qemu-launcher" in Synaptic Package Manager. error: "Could not mark all packages for installation or upgrade -- the following packages have unresolvable dependencies. Make sure that all required repositories are added and enabled in the preferences. -- qemu-launcher: Depends: qemu-kvm (>=0.11.0~rc1) but it is not installable"

3. Tried to download "qemu-launcher" via "apt-get" in terminal - same error as in Synaptic

4. Attempted to download "qemu-kvm" via "apt-get" in terminal: "package qemu-kvm is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source. E: package qemu-kvm has no installation candidate."

5. Found and downloaded "qemu-kvm-0.11.0~rc1.orig.tar.gz". Extracted archive.

OpenSUSE :: One-click Makes Installing Applications?

Sep 3, 2010

I like how easy one-click makes installing applications and all, but I wonder if there is a way to look "behind the curtain" and know what it is doing before clicking it. I'm just thinking of if I use the one-click in the software section (is that part of OBS?),

what all is going to happen, or can I just grab the latest .rpm and when it goes to get installed it determines and downloads dependencies automatically? I guess I want to make sure that these aren't adding 101 repositories that have to be refreshed for updates and clutter things up!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To DISABLE Sound Click On Applications

Jul 23, 2010

this morning after a reboot I made a discover. Clicking on tabs, launching applications, and so on, make annoying and stupid sounds from my speakers. CLICK, BOP, BLAP! Who decided to turn these things on? I'm listening MUSIC, I don't wanna those stupid sounds bother me! Anyway, I was suddendly on System -> Preferences -> Sound and I choosed Sound Theme: NO SOUND. But those annoying sounds are already there. And there's no way to disable them! Is this a BUG or what? Is there something to do?

I also discovered another thing: clicking on items that are at RIGHT of my screen, the sound come from RIGHT. Clicking on center, they come from center. Right, right. So I realize that sounds are stereophonic. And really I can't understand why a software developer choosed to waste his time coding a piece of code to do this, instead of solving the hundred millions of bugs we're affected from YEARS.

Ubuntu :: 90% Of The Applications Install - Last Release - Do Not Show Up Later On In Applications Menu

Jul 24, 2010

I feel shy asking this question but, 90% of the applications I install in Ubuntu (last release), do not show up later on in the applications menu, so I cant run them. I know it seems silly, but I can't find the way to handle this inconvenience. Is there a place (like Start> All programs in Windows), were I could find and run all the programs I install?

Applications :: Automated Install Of 30 Applications Across Multiple Distributions?

Jun 15, 2010

I'm setting up a large number of virtual machines, each with a basic set of about 30 applications. Obviously, I don't want to do everything manually so I'm looking for ways to automate this process. Multiple distributions (Ubuntu, Red Hat Ent., FreeBSD, CentOS, etc.) will be used, meaning I will have a few Ubuntu installs with the basic set of 30 applications, and multiple Red Hat installs with the same set, etc. So, I'm looking for advice on automating as much of this as I can, even if it means a new form of automation for each distro.

Software :: Get Installed Applications List And Applications Activity

May 25, 2009

Is there a programmatic way to get the list of all installed applications on Linux.

Also, how can we get the application activities in Linux OS like running applications name, time of day when they started, duration till the applications were running on system, application version etc.

Is there a way to do this in C/C++.

I am building an app that runs like a daemon and fetches the applications status and sends it to the network admin for him to monitor the application usage pattern on the user computers in the network.

Ubuntu :: Update Manager Tries To Remove Applications

Jun 8, 2010

I was wondering why some programs are removed when doing a (partial) upgrade. For instance the Nvidia drivers, the network manager and some other server components are removed.

This is very annoying since you're receiving updates on a regular basis.

(screenshot of the update manager announcing the programs it's going to remove)

Ubuntu :: Remove Applications From Message Menu?

Jul 17, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04.
Upgraded 8.04 -> 8.10 -> 9.04 -> 9.10 -> 10.04

If I'm perfectly honest, I really don't like the "messaging menu". I don't like the way it's a single point that lumps all sorts of messages together. From a socialite's perspective, I'm sure it's awesome... from a more business orientated perspective, it's cumbersom - the icon is green, does that mean I have an important email, a new post has popped up on my RSS feed (via Liferea), or is it just Bob saying "Hi" in Empathy... I won't know until I click it I would rather have separate notification icons for the individual applications, just like it used to be. Now, I know how to remove application from the Messaging Menu... or at least I thought I did.

I just tried removing 'gwibber' from /usr/share/indicators/messages/applications I have stopped using Empathy (I have used Pidgin/GAIM for a lot longer and I'm stuck in my ways ), so that's gone. I have removed the PPA version of Liferea that had Message Menu integration, so that's gone. I have removed Evolution as I use (and have done so for ~10 years) ClawsMail, so that's gone. The last thing I want to get rid of is Gwibber. I like Gwibber, I just don't want it in the Messaging Menu.

Ubuntu :: Remove Avast Icon From Applications Window

May 18, 2010

I'd imagine I sound like a complete clown but I am completely new to ubunto and linux in general. Having "fiddled around with it" for a matter of weeks I am finding generally I am quite pleased and am taking my time sorting through the chaff. Talking of chaff I have a problem from downloading a program previously which turned out to be unnecessary. Avast, I have removed the program and associated files but for some reason an Icon remains in the applications box at the bottom, not in a grouped file. I have tried various terminal commands taken from forums etc but none of these appear to have done the trick. A simple right click doesnt give me a remove to waste basket option and the drag and drop to waste basket doesn't work either. Amongst terminal efforts force remove etc etc., don't have any affect and the lines about the avast file does not exist.

Debian Configuration :: 'Add/Remove Applications' Disappeared After Upgrade?

Feb 22, 2010

I had some problems about a week ago with installing Python2.6-minimal (as an issue, it got resolved), however, after the problem was resolved, 'Add/Remove Applications' disappeared after upgrade was complete. I usually do not use this program for installing, etc., if I can help it, but do use it more often for web address reference when I am considering installing a new program, etc. Question is,is there some way to find out if it is merely lurking somewhere in my system... & then to once again add it to my menu list? Or, if that is not the case, to reinstall it via apt-get, aptitude, or some way like this? I could not find this application (or whatever it is called) in the Synaptic Package Manager.
