Sep 28, 2010

All of a sudden I can no longer control the default size of my gnome terminal windows. The option is just gone from the preference window. If I look in gconf-editor my old values are still there but they are ignored.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 LiveCD Loads Gnome By Default

May 12, 2011

CentOS 5 :: CentOS 5.4 Hangs Just Before Desktop Loads?

Apr 1, 2010

My Dell poweredge server running CentOS 5.4 and booting kernel-2.6.18-164.15.1.el5. All boot processes seem okay and the graphical screens for CentOS operate, but just before the desktop loads the screen goes blank and the arrow/cursor is being circled by small spheres. This remains indefinitely. While the arrow is being circled, here are the results of 'getinfo.sh device'

2.6.18-164.15.1.el5 i686 i386

Ubuntu Installation :: Basic Packages To Get Wireless Working In Gnome?

May 24, 2010

Let me preface, assuming your wireless card works with gnome, doing an install from scratch, what packages do you need to get wireless working? So far I've installed gnome-core, menu, menu-xdg and gdm. network-manager and network-manager-gnome are both now installed, I can setup stuff in network connections, but can't see the nm-applet in the notification area, and it never seems to try to connect to my wireless network, do I need any specific other packages (wireless works fine if I install the entire ubuntu 10.04 live CD).

General :: Run X Windows On CentOS With GNOME?

Apr 18, 2011

I am trying to run X windows on CentOS with GNOME. When I first enter startx i get the message:

Fatal server error: Server is already active for display 0 If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock and start again.

Then I removed the .X0-lock file ran startx again and I got this message:

_XSERVTransSocketINETCreateListener: ...SocketCreateListener() failed _XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: server already running Fatal server error: Cannot establish any listening sockets - Make sure an X server isn't already running

Finally, I ran startx -- :1 and then it flashed a black screen with the X mouse cursor but a second later it just went right back to the desktop.

Sep 25, 2010

I used yum 5 days ago when I installed mplayer and some dependencies. And now I manage to use Yum and it is not working, I cant find out what is happening but yum loads the plugins and then freezes and is no reaction to ctrl-c or something to stop it so I am have to kill it dna finally got no result from any update processes. Also I manage to clean cache or even to run yum. I checked the logs and it writes nothing about this ,neither an error or something to make me understand whats happening. Tried to install with rpm but the same thing happens. It just freezes...

CentOS 5 :: Flashing KDE Applications In Windows List Of Gnome Panel?

May 1, 2009

I am running CentOS 5.3, Gnome Panel 2.16.1. It seems some KDE applications just flash crazily in the windows list (task bar in Gnome panel). Usually when a new event happens to a window, it flashes to remind the user (I hate this *feature* anyway, but can't disable it...) But this time, when I switch from another workspace to the workspace that has (more than one) KDE applications (like kile and kdvi), they just simply start to flash, and the flashing window list appears on every workspace unless you click it.

I tried to disable the animation from gconf-editor, without success. Does anyone have similar issues? It is really annoying..

OpenSUSE :: Gnome No Longer Starts After Update?

Jan 21, 2011

since the last SuSE online update (last Wednesday?) the X server no longer starts on our notebook (ATI HD 4200) so we only have the consoles available, which limits the WAF heavily . We were using SuSE 11.3 with the Gnome desktop for about one months and it worked smoothly, but since the update (which included a kernel update to the X server tries to start 5 times and then gives up. All logfiles end with:

[ 13.899] Segmentation fault at address 0x3c
[ 13.899]
Fatal server error:


I used the ati driver ati-fglrxG02-kmp-desktop, version 8.762_k2.6.34.0_12-31.1 from the ATI Suse repository. To solve the problem I already switched to the Xorg driver which lead to a color distorted display but no segmentation fault. But I'd like to get the ati driver running again.

Ubuntu :: No Longer Launch An Email To A Contact From Gnome-do

Dec 2, 2010

I can no longer launch an email to a contact from gnome-do. I select a contact (using Gmail Contacts plugin) in the first pane, "Email" in the second pane, hit return and get nothing. I use Evolution as my email client because I like the tight integration with the gnome desktop. Previously, in Lucid 10.04 if I'm remembering correctly, this action in Gnome-Do would launch an Evolution email window with the To: field already populated. I'm running 32-bit 10.10 Maverick. Evidently there was a similar bug for Thunderbird that has been fixed. [URL] And something similar when using chrome as preferred email client: [URL]

that I could run (twice in a row, it needed) to allow the scroling of the screen to see the bottom 1/4.

Fedora :: Entering Unicode Characters In Gnome Via Ctrl+Shift+u / No Longer Works

Dec 8, 2009

For some unknown (to me) reason, "Ctrl+Shift+u, <unicode number>" doesn't work in F12. I had gotten quite used to this method in order to input several symbols and if you know what you want, it is a lot faster compared to using the character map. This was working in all recent Fedora versions.Does anyone know how to enable this functionality?

Networking :: "Basic" Router Using RHEL Or CentOS

Feb 1, 2011

There have been plenty of occassions when I've needed to setup a RHEL or CentOS box to act as a NAT router / firewall, and I am able to do this fairly easily by enabling ip_forwarding, and setting up a couple of iptables FORWARD rules and a nat rule.

However, what I'd like to do now, sounds in theory like it should be simpler, but I seem to be having a mental block and all of my searches pull up results about people playing around with LinkSys routers and so on.

Let me give an example scenario. Let's say I have two subnets, A and B. A has the IP range and B has

I have my RHEL box, with two NICs. One is connected to subnet A and has the IP, the other to subnet B with the IP

All I want to do, is make clients on each subnet be able to talk to each other via my Linux box.

No, NAT'ing, no firewall rules, just straight up, good old-fashioned routing.

CentOS 5 :: 5.2 (native) - Gnome Dektop Munged Slightly Due To Attempted Gnome Upgrade

Mar 11, 2009

Against all advice in Centos docs, I built and installed several gnome packages in order to upgrade to the latest Gnumeric. Among them were: fontconfig, pango, gtk+, cairo, glib. goffice, pixman, tiff, and atk. Afterwards, I got missing fonts with some apps, but the biggest problem is interference with my Vmware Workstation GUIs. Yesterday I removed all the libraries I installed hoping to recover. Now things are better, but when I open a terminal on the desktop it opens jammed in the upper-left corner with the top grab bar out of reach of the mouse. Before I remove the ~/.gnome* directories, how to restore things?
