Ubuntu :: Thunderbird And Feeditems-x.rdf - Can't Remove Them Through The Subscribe Dialogue
Aug 30, 2010
picture = 1000 words all those weird .rdf files shouldn't be there. I can't remove them through the subscribe dialogue. I can try deleting them, but they don't go away. I only posted here because I don't care to sign up for every forum for every piece of software I decide to use. Too many logins to remember
I try to add comp.os.linux.misc newsgroup in Thunderbird account, but cant subscribe. It says "Failed to connect to server comp.os.linux.misc". I know I make mistake on writing the adress, but don't know how to write it. I found on google the name of the group, but no server.
I try also firstname.lastname@example.org, but can't subscribe too.
From reading around the web, it looks like Firefox's "quick view" of an RSS feed sometimes lets you "Subscribe to this feed using" Thunderbird. For whatever reason, that's not an automatically-added option with my setup (FF 3.5.something + Thunderbird 3.0.something on Linux), so I figured I could just "Choose Application...", point at the Thunderbird binary, and be on my way. Not so -- nothing appears to happen. If I run thunderbird from the command line as
thunderbird "http://path/to/feed" the app launches as normal. If it's already running, absolutely nothing happens. Is this impossible? Is there some mojo I can pass Firefox to tell it that Thunderbird exists? Should I just suck it up and copy/paste the URLs manually?
I would like to remove from the Thunderbird every faulty email message that it keeps in his "memory". For example if accidentally I send an email to email@example.com every time i press f to the To: field the firstname.lastname@example.org entry appears.
Is it possible somehow to remove these email addresses?
When I try to subscribe to this RSS feed, Firefox offers me a choice of using itself or Akgregator for the purpose. When I choose Akgregator, it comes to front but otherwise nothing happens; the feed does not get added to its list.
As a Fedora user, I listen to podcasts via gpodder. But some podcasters only seem to allow one to subscribe via iTunes. For example the well-known factcheck.org website's new "Factcheck Radio" podcast service[URL]..
I can't work out how to subscribe to it using gpodder or any other generic podcast aggregating software.Click on any episode title, and you'll get a page with a "subscribe to the podcast on iTunes" link.
I found some info about iTunes-only podcasts and Linux [URL]..but I don't see how to apply it in this case.Can anyone find a way that Fedora users can subscribe to Factcheck Radio?
If I go to "Alter channel subscriptions" page of a VM, I do not see any channels to subscribe. It just shows "None (Disable service)". On the same time, I'm getting the following errors in Apache error log and rhn_server_xmlrpc.log
I'm using kde4, compiz and emerald.After I start compiz, I don't have access to a "run" dialogue, that I would expect to see after hitting "alt+f2".Googling,There seem to be a number of proposed solutions. However, the solution posts that I can find all seem to be outdated.
how do I switch off the question dialogue ("are you sure you want to end all programs and switch off?") which comes up when I want to shutdown the system?is it the same way as it was in Karmic or is it different? If it is different: how do I do this?
Have recently installed 10.10 x64 on Gigabyte H55M-D2h/Intel i5/4GB/Onboard graphics&sound and have trouble with some text display. When hovering over some apps, the "help" dialogues appear as black on black, and same for some right/left click dialogue boxes.
I just upgraded from Ooo 2.4 to Ooo 3.3, running it on Hardy. Everything seems to work fine, except for the dialogue window to open / save files.
In the previous version of Ooo I worked with, files were opened and saved by Nautilus. Now Ooo uses a different file manager which I don't like, because I can't jump quickly to my favourite maps and it's harder to navigate through my files. It has to be easy to have Nautilus again opening files, but I just can't find out how.
I'm blue in the face using chmod and chgrp. Both root and my own username are members of the cdrom group under the administration menus.The dialogue above displays, and then the disk icon appears afterwards, but it's very slow. Anyone have a clue about this?
A small thing disturbs me: If I go to the dialog box [open with:] its okay but if I go forward in the dialog box to [other] the dialog window is far to big horizontally and cannot be re-sized. This came up suddenly during a fast mouse click session. As root its OK. I would have liked to add a small image about this but i do not have any web site for this any more.
I've set up Samba under Ubuntu for windows SMB file sharing (currently unauthenticated but soon to be backed off against A.D.) This is great within Windows where l folders are available as mounted in all applications but from my Ubuntu desktop and Ubuntu laptops, we can only access network folders and files from the File browsers and bookmarks one finds in the "Places" menu. Our issue is that most (but not all) dialogue boxes don't have any options for viewing non-local files and folders. i.e. when I'm in my web browser and I go to upload a file from our local network file server to an internet location, the "Open" dialogue box cannot see any of our local network locations.
I would like to change the dialogue that says "permission denied" when something has to be done as root or that user does not have permission to do something. Is this at all possible? (Also, not really sure which category this should be in, that's why it's here)
Is there any way to make the file selector dialogue box in Ubuntu show icons instead of a list or detail view? I have been trying to convince people to use Ubuntu instead of windows, but this seems to be a deal breaker for most of them. When uploading pictures to the web or facebook it is very difficult to navigate pictues in the file browser window with the little bitty thumbnails beside the file name. If there is no way to do this how would I recommend this idea for Ubuntu and to whom would I submit it?
While in a web browser I'm trying to attach a file which resides on a network location. The file dialogue doesn't allow me to browse any network location. I've mounted the volume and added locations to favorites. I've also tried entering an smb:// path. This only happens in browsers, both FFnd Chrome, some examples would be attaching a file in gmail, yousendit, etc. I can browse and work off the network normally in desktop apps.

Thanks to Lucid not working properly on i845, i855 and other 8xx chips, had to re-install Karmic on my mum's computer.I saved all the data from her old install and I ve managed to get all her old emails from thunderbird, but I cant import her address book.In Thunderbird/tools/import/addressbooks it only allows importing of LDIF, .tab, .csv and .txt files, but I cant find any of these files in any of the Thunderbird, .Thunderbird, Mozilla-Thunderbird or Mozilla folders in Home folder or anywhere, all I can find is "abook.mab" which IS supposed to be her address book, but when I try and import it the entries are blank and/or indecipherable (prob cos not a compatible file type).
Its one of those "simple" things to do, thats taken hours and hours of time, but that I cant actually find out how to do.
When I unlock the screen, I'm presented with an opaque dialogue (white box), regardless of whether I have a screen-saver or not. This is a cosmetic issue only because I can type my password to unlock the screen successfully, but I'd like a solution. I'm using oS 11.2 with KDE 4.5 (but the issue predates updating to 4.5).This is the only "issue" I've experienced since migrating my laptop (was Windoze 7) and desktop (was MS SQL server 2003) to oS
I have installed mysql package in ubuntu 9.04 .I have also installed the query browser software can someone tell me how to configure the connection dialogue box in query browser. also my friend is using ubuntu 8.04 when he writes mysql in terminal he can directly execute database queries there but when i try the same thing on 9.04 i get an error as "Access denied for user 'ravi'@'localhost' (using password: NO)"
I run version 10.04 GNOME. My problem is (after substantial searching) that I need to have both users ('juliusz' and 'sarah') running Thunderbird but with the same profile (settings, email, accounts etc. preferably of 'juliusz'). The only results on the internet are share Thunderbird between Windows and Ubuntu.
I have two users juliusz and sarah. I need either of them to have the same profile, always in synch whenever they logon to own account. When I tried to edit sarah's /home/sarah/.mozilla-thunderbird/profile.ini by inserting: Path=/home/juliusz/.mozilla-thunderbird/xxxxxxx.default after i run Thunderbird for 'sarah' I get message: "Thunderbird is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Thunderbird process, or restart your system." I checked with "ps aux" there is no Thunderbird running in sarah's session. There is no Thunderbird running in juliusz's session when I reloged to juliusz.
I'm not sure about the correct category for this question.In the "You inserted an empty DVD" dialogue, I picked the wrong program and clicked the "Always do this" box. Now I can't find the place to undo that.
I have installed 11.4, and it seems (seemed) to work OK so far. I installed Thunderbird via the opensuse "1 click install". the installation ran smoothly, but now a click on the Thunderbird icon does not activate any mail client; the only success is that Thunderbird icon jumps joyfully and then disappears.
After a new installation with Fedora Core 15 KDE is starting slow. It's now giving me a lot of errors in $HOME/.xsession-errors:
Code: kwin(5077)/kdeui (KNotification) KNotification::slotReceivedIdError: Error while contacting notify daemon "Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."The message repeats and repeats. Sometimes I start applications and they timeout with similar messages. To be more precise: I can't select a program from the "System settings" dialogue.
Code: klauncher(5065)/kio (KLauncher): SlavePool: No communication with slave. Selinux is off. Any ideas?
