CentOS 5 :: System/administration Menu Has 2x 'hardware' Entries

Mar 29, 2009

simple installs of CentOS5.2 i386 on 2x Dell C640's and x86-64 on a Dell dimension 9150 resulted in the System/Administration menu offering two entries each with the name 'hardware' and the icon showing a little chip hovering over a PC. I did "add this launcher to panel" on both as an easy way of checking their properties:

The higher entry issues the command 'hwbrowser'
The lower entry issues the command 'hal-device-manager'

Both have the comment "view information on the hardware on this computer". I feel the hal-device-manager entry has the wrong name, comment, and icon. I think /etc/xdg/menus/system-settings.menu is relevant.

Ubuntu :: Duplicate Entries In System -> Administration Menu

Nov 22, 2010

I just upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10. I originally had installed the nvidia drivers using the bash script from nvidia's website. This time around I used the ones from synaptic. However now when I go and look in System -> Administration there are 2 entries for "NVIDIA X Server Settings". The first one has the NVIDIA logo, the other one has a grey question mark. Does anyone know why there are 2 entries and how I can remove one of them?

Debian :: System Administration Menu - Just Get Login Screen

Jul 11, 2011

I've just started using Debian having previously used Ubuntu. With Ubuntu, under the System->Administration menu I get lots of options (e.g. Network Tools, Printing, Services...) to select from, but with Debian I just get Login Screen. Do I just get the one option because this is the only thing installed, or do I need to do something to enable other admin options?

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Add Item To System > Administration Menu

Jun 20, 2010

I just upgraded my Ubuntu 9.10 to Ubuntu 10.04. Part of the Ubuntu 9.10 installation was GParted (version 0.4.5) and I saw, after upgrading to Ubutnu 10.04, there was a more recent version available: 0.5.1.

After installing that version, GParted was still part of the System > Administration menu (just as it was before).

But then I saw the version 0.6.0 of GParted was recently released and there was also a .deb distro available.

After downloading and installing the 0.6.0 version of GParted, the item GParted disappeared from the System > Administration menu and appeared in another menu (Applications > System Tools).

My question: how can I get GParted back as part of the Systems > Administrations menu?

Ubuntu :: System->Administration->Printing , Menu Missing?

Sep 15, 2010

Well like the title Implies, In my Administration menu in Gnome I don't have a "Printing" option. So I can't search for/install printers right now.I'm running 10.04 Server. I installed the gnome-desktop-environment package to get a GUI up and running for manipulating the filesystem, But not all the menu's I was expecting appeared. Is this because I used the gnome-desktop-environment instead of the ubuntu-desktop-environment package? ecause I have two PC's setup next to each other. One using the ubuntu-desktop-environment, and one using the gnome-desktop-environment package and the two desktops are clearly different.All I want to know is how to add the Printers menu to my PC running the gnome-desktop-environment package. I already looked at gconf-editor and the printing menu isn't hidden or anything, it's just not there. And me being a new user to Linux, I don't know how else to get to those printer abilities without the GUI

CentOS 5 :: Administration --> Printing Dialog Freezes Centos 5.6

Aug 10, 2011

if I choose Administration --> Printing and then try to select a printer from the list of available printers (to delete a printer for example), the dialog
freezes and needs to be terminated forcibly. It seems like I can hit "New Printer" and add a printer without anything freezing. All of the printers on the list are
network printers.

Possibly related- if I use evince to view and document and then attempt to print by going File --> Print, it gives me a printer selection box which also freezes if I try to choose a printer from the list.

Debian Programming :: Add Entries To Existing Menu

Jan 12, 2014

What I would like to do is, with a right click, have the menu give me the option to run srm, which is a "secure remove" program. I picked this one as it requires not only a file name, but some other options. I've run into no support adding things to menus. When I updated one of the Debian versions, I lost the shutdown option from the name menu that used to be there. It was suggested that I right click and pick that option to restore it, but I get the same as the left button on that menu.

Ubuntu :: Multiple Entries In Menu After Upgrade

Sep 19, 2010

I know someone posted a sim. query back in 2008, but I'm know getting the same issue in Lucid. I installed the latest updates last night and when I rebooted I found I had what looks like multiple copies of the same kernel entry in the Menu.lst. I've included my file for review. Sorting this out. Otherwise I reckon Lucid is rock solid. I do tend to leave a lot of default entries in commented out. Will this make my boot slower at all?

Ubuntu :: Grub 2 Menu - Duplicate Entries

Dec 5, 2010

For the past few weeks I have been using the lastest Ubuntu OS. The following menu pops-up during the boot process.

GNU GRUB version 1.98+20100804-5ubuntu3
Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic-pae
Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic-pae (recovery mode)
Memory test (mentest86+)
Memory test (mentest86+, serial console 115200)
Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sdb1)

Just recently the menu displays duplicate entries. The first two entries are repeated (see below). What might have caused these duplicate entries to appear and how to correct them? Before this problem occurred I did not issue any sudo commands.

GNU GRUB version 1.98+20100804-5ubuntu3
Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic-pae
Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-22-generic-pae (recovery mode)

Ubuntu :: Duplicate Entries In Places Menu?

Apr 2, 2011

I see this posted in several places in the past but no answers. If I use UUID in fstab to mount additional partitions I get duplicate entries for the partitions in the Places Menu. I can solve the problem by mounting the partitions by Label ( /dev/sdb2 /mountpoint ) but half of the time grub2 will not mount the drive correctly using this method and will change the volume ID (sdb2 becomes sdf2) .

Software :: Grub2 - Win 7 Menu Entries Not Found?

Jan 10, 2010

I have been reading this but could not resolve my issue: [URL]. The problem is as follows. I got a samsung laptop and there is some kind of recovery utility installed. After installing Ubuntu I get too windows grub entries, one is called Windows Vista (loader) on /dev/sda1 and the other one is Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sda2. The latter is correct and the first one is something that I'd rather not have active at all in the grub menu. Both of them are of course created by 30_os-prober in /etc/grub.d. I figured that I would most likely prefer a custom entry for Windows 7 and remove the x flag from 30_os-prober. I tried to create a file 50_windows7 in a described manner:

#! /bin/sh -e
echo "Adding Windows 43_custom" >&2
menuentry "Windows Vista 43_custom" {
insmod ntfs
set root=(hd0,2)
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 7cecddfbecddb01e
chainloader +1 }

Unfortunately during update-grub I get following:
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.31-17-generic
Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-2.6.31-17-generic
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.31-14-generic
Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-2.6.31-14-generic
Found Windows Vista (loader) on /dev/sda1
Found Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sda2
Adding Windows 43_custom
/etc/grub.d/50_windows7: 4: menuentry: not found

Fedora :: F12 Wine32 - Dead Applications Menu Entries

Jan 12, 2010

I'm a comparative newbie, especially with using WINE. I installed it through the F12 package installer. I then found that the Applications menu entries were inoperative. Just plain dead. I tried uninstalling, then reinstalling. No improvement. Tried again from terminal using yum no change. The only way I've got anything to work is if I run from terminal as root. I know that if the .wine directory is created with root it may only work with root. I've tried deleting that directory, but I'm not sure I succeeded. I don't see the .wine directory but nothing runs with a non-root login.

When I do see errors, they are mostly that the program can't be found in a WINE "DOS" directory. I did get two MS Office apps installed (as test cases) but, again, F12 menu items don't work and I can only run them as root. I think internet access is cut off as well (can't get them to activate). I guess my overall question is: How do I install WINE in F12 such that the menu items work for non-root logins? If there's already a guide, wiki or FAQ, I'd be happy to know where it is.

Ubuntu :: Grub2 Menu Keeps Showing Nonexistent OS Entries / Get Rid Of These?

Jan 24, 2010

When I originally installed Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit, I had the following operating systems already installed:

Kubuntu 9.04
Windows 7
Windows XP

Ubuntu automagically created a GRUB2 menu that offered all of these, plus of course itself, which was fine for a while.

Later on, I deleted and reformatted the partitions that had been dedicated to Kubuntu 9.04. GRUB2 has failed to keep up. Despite running "sudo update-grub" multiple times, the GRUB2 menu continues to show entries for Kubuntu 9.04.

How do I get rid of these obsolete entries? The partitions it was on simply do not exist any longer, so I don't know how GRUB2 is picking it up.

I had already edited my fstab file to reflect the new partitioning scheme, so I don't know where GRUB2 is getting the idea that I still have Kubuntu 9.04 installed.
