General :: Disallow Closing Last Emacs Window Via Window-Manager Close Button

Jul 8, 2011

I like to start Emacs as part of a login script and leave it running for the duration of my login session (which is typically weeks).

I have scripts to call emacs-client which will allow me to use a file-manager or Windows Explorer to locate files and right-click to edit them in Emacs.

I often end up with a lot of emacs windows (frames) open and I like to just be able to close them by clicking on the MS-Windows or KDE X button at the top-right.

The trouble is, if the window is the last one, this will shut down emacs which will lose all kinds of interesting history information.

As a work-around I use C-x 5 0 which won't let me close the last frame but this is often not as convenient as using the mouse

Does anyone know how to configure Emacs so that it can intercept the Window-Close button of the last frame to either request confirmation or simply disallow it?

On MS-Windows, disallowing closing of the last window may cause logoff to hang if emacs is still running but I'm not too worried about that.

Ubuntu :: Double-click Menu Button To Close Window?

Apr 22, 2011

I've been using this feature since Win3.1 days. Double-click the menu button on the top-left of the window to close it.It doesn't work for me right now in KDE, and I can't find any option to enable it. Googling gave a few hits of people requesting this feature in gnome, but no clear instructions on how to enable it in KDE or whether it's possible. (Though perhaps my Google-fu is just weak...)

General :: Ubuntu Gnome Applet Panel Power Button Won't Shutdown Machine

Nov 3, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.10 on e-machine T-1221 I can shut down the machine using :

sudo shutdown -h from terminal

I can shutdown using powerbutton on case. I can't use the applet indicator powerbutton in root account, but, I can use the command under "System-->-Shutdown" in root account, but I don't see "System-->-Shutdown" in users account. Is there a way to add it ? I installed Debian 6.0 Squeeze on my Acer Aspire 3620 Laptop it works just fine and has the same Gnome Desktop. The only thing different is that there is no powerbutton available thru Gnome applets, only the command on menu under" Sytem-->-Shutdown", which I'm fine with on this machine.

These are the things I tried on emachine T-1221

I tried "acpi=force"
I tried "noacpi"
I tried "noacpi nolapic"

I read the bug reports it stated that on live-cd there was only suspend and hibernate. There is no shutdown or reboot. I tried: "#start acpi", it closed with errors. It said that Ubuntu uses upstart. Is there a script which you can add to power button to add the shutdown.? Really I don't necessarily need powerbutton, I think the work around would be adding the command to "System-->-Menu.

Software :: JACK Windows Will Not Close Or Resize - No Exit Button

May 24, 2010

Why don't JACK windows behave in the standard way windows have, on every piece of software. for all OS's for many years? I haven't had the opportunity to test Jack audio in/out yet because of these problems. However, Jack does appear to start and indicates it is connected. After the Jack control panel loads normaly and appears to be connected, if I open the patchbay or messages panels, they cant be closed as individual windows. To close them I must QUIT Jack, and reopen, and reconnect. There is no exit button on the upper right corner of these windows.

If I right-click on these windows, the close option is shaded, preventing it's use. The Jack control panel does not appear to have drop-down menus to close them, either. If I accidentally do click the button in the upper right corner, which is habitual, the window will maximize to a scale that is somewhat larger than the size of the desktop on my screen, making resizing by dragging edges (top, bottom, corner) impossible. If I right click on the Jack Window's title bar (top) I can resize the window to my preference by clicking this option on the drop-down menu. It took me three or four weeks to find this option.

Also, I've seen some posts regarding Jack problems related to Firefox. Does Jack actually start Firefox when it opens or is connected? My system can't afford to have background processes or applications. System resources are too limited. I don't understand the difficulties involved with making Jack windows function as others do. It seems to my uneducated self, for example, that if the development of Jack had been done on some "visual" high level language, (Like C/C++ or Java, for example) making the windows function like others packages would simply be a matter of dragging GUI elements and defining their functions.

Here's a list of my system:
Old Single processor Intel box, P4, 3.0 GHz, with one Gig DDR memory
A old Sound Blaster 16 sound card. (works okay with linux)
(all hardware seems to be fully functional in all other Linux programs)
Linux Mint, (version 8) derived from Debian.
Ubuntu Studio, (version 10.4) also Debian.
Jack (version 0.3.4) on both distros. (Mint updated through repository< I believe, but I culd be wrong)
Firefox (version 3.5.9)

I prefer GUI solutions, but can generally get along okay with a terminal or file editor window. When it's absolutely necessary. The windows behave the same if I have another audio program running or not. The system works fine with ALSA drivers (MIDI.)

Ubuntu :: Removing The Resize Window Button From Corner?

Jun 6, 2011

I was wondering if it's possible to remove the triangular resize window button from the bottom-right corner of a particular window (or all windows, doesn't matter). I recently made it so that I have a transparent terminal (with no title bar, borders, etc.) docked onto my desktop, but the one thing I can't get rid of is the ugly-looking resize button hanging out by itself in the middle of the screen.
