Debian Multimedia :: Can't Make Default Paper Size Stick In Gedit?

Jun 1, 2010

I am using the Gnome desktop in Lenny 5.03The default Gedit paper size is "US Letter", which is almost right for my HP Laserjet 4L, except that about .5 inch at the top and .25 inch at the left margin are cut off.I have defined a "Custom Size" under File -> Page Setup -> Manage Custom Sizes... with margin settings that solve the problem, but this "Custom Size" only remains the default Paper Size for printing until Gedit is closed.Using what appears to be the same gnome dialog from epiphany and evolution, the Papersize settings stick, but not from Gedit. I cannot locate any configuration file to edit, and nothing in the gconf editor seems to apply.

Debian Multimedia :: How To Make Certain Windows Open Same Size Every Time

Jan 13, 2016

I have been using windowmaker for some time now. I really love this wm, but I've one major problem; how do I make certain windows open the same size each time I open that program? For instance, I have a certain size I prefer for Pcmanfm, Vlc, deadbeef, and geequie, but every time I run them, they open anywhere on the desktop at all sorts of sizes. I especially hate resizing a video window when the video is playing.

I can do this in fluxbox, but I have a different set of problems with that window manager, namely, I can't organize my dockapps the way I want, despite editing the slitlist and some won't work at all. While I love Openbox, I can't get the windows sized right each time, either.

OpenSUSE Network :: Force Paper Size In CUPS?

Oct 27, 2010

I have a CUPS server with several end users. The problem is that the printer stops printing if someone trys to print in letter size. (You have to insert letter paper or abort the print job on the printer.)

No, I'm looking for a way to force printing jobs to A4 paper size.

how to do this? Maybe with custom cups filters, but I don't know how this is done.

Red Hat :: Not Possible To Set Default Paper Sizes?

Aug 31, 2010

The "[SOLVED]" attribute to the How to set defaulter size in RHEL5 thread notwithstanding, the problem really is not solved. I've set my default language to both "C" and to "EN-us" and the problem is that absolutely every single time I print, I have to meander through varying layout print menus to find the "A4" setting and change it to "letter". That, or sacrifice the last two lines on every page because the default size is larger than the actual size. Bad default. It is not unique to Red Hat/CentOS, of course. Same problem exists on Debian and SuSE, too. Why is this such an intractable issue? Why is there not some simple and obvious way to say, "squish all instances of A4 (or "letter") and replace with "letter" (or "A4")!"?

Debian Multimedia :: How To Change Icons Size And Gaps Size

Oct 22, 2015

today I upgraded via official testing repository Gnome to version 3.18. After this, icons on desktop and nautilus are bigger, than before. Next thing, gaps between icons are smaller than before. I tried change theme to default (Adwaita), then run gtk-update-icon-cache, but without result.

Normal view - icons are big for this view. URL....

Small view - icons are still big for this view. URL...

How can I change icons size and gaps size? Or is it bug for this version?

Debian Multimedia :: Slow Typing Response In Gedit

Sep 2, 2014

I am having some issues with the typing speed in gedit. When typing the response is usually really slow,It can be up to a second or so between rendering keystrokes. I don't believe it has anything to do with resources. I have checked the processes running when it happens and everything looks pretty normal cpu usuage is also very low at the time. The system is very responsive with everything else at the time.

I only have this problem with gedit, gvim, vim, nano etc are fine. Maybe an issue with a GTK lib of some sort? The problem happens with very small files like little bash scripts. I have including some info about the system ...

Ubuntu :: File Size Limit For Gedit?

Nov 5, 2010

I've noticed that for files longer than about 8000 lines that gedit has problems opening the file. Was gedit not designed for long files or is there another problem? The same thing also happens on complicated html files. So I hope there is a way to fix this.

I'm running Lucid Lynx on it. When I go to System > Preferences > Preferred Applications, Audacious doesn't come up in the drop-down menu under the Multimedia tab. Anyone know of any way I can change this from Rhythmbox to Audacious?

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Mount Usb Stick From Konsole (lenny)

Nov 19, 2010

Due to a bug that will be fixed at squeeze (I'm running lennyx64), I can't mount ntfs partitions from gui interface (or else, directories with non-English characters will be ignored).

So I'm mounting with disk-manager (hd partitions only), or from konsole. Obviously, mounting from konsole, is the only option for usb flash sticks.

Suddenly, just out of the blue, today debian stopped mounting ntfs partitions from konsole. Since this was my only option for mounting safely my friend's sticks, I have a big problem right now.

I can't figure out many things from the error message:

Debian Multimedia :: KDE - Format A Usb Stick - Micro Sd Card?

Aug 24, 2011

For the last several weeks i've been trying KDE and it's been working quite fine. There are however several minor issues with KDE.

First - how can i format a usb stick? In GNOME after the usb stick has been plugged in one just have to right click on it and select "Format". Here i don't see such an option. I googled it and i read somewhere that the tool for this would be KDE partition manager. I installed it but it looks like an overkill for the task. KDE partition manager is high level tool like GParted, whereas i'm looking for something that integrates into the desktop so i can just right click on the usb drive and select format. Besides KDE partition manager asks for a root password which is logical because it can format all your partitions. However i don't see the need for a root password when one is going to format a usb drive.

Second - i tried to use my micro sd card yesterday and while it mounted automatically i couldn't write anything on it or delete any of the files on it ( didn't have this problem with the usb stick though). How can i change that? I have a default Debian install with a nearly default KDE 4.6.5. In GNOME the SD card was always mounted writable by default.

Third - i am using Iceweasel, Rhythmbox and GIMP which are GTK applications. To make them look OK in KDE i installed gtk2-engines-oxygen and kde-config-gtk-style and i also installed the Oxygen KDE Firefox theme (from here [URL]). I then configured the GTK applications to use the oxygen engine and Rhythmbox and GIMP look perfectly OK (i've attached a screenshot at the bottom of my post) however Iceweasel doesn't look completely OK. The problem is that the color scheme of the window is slightly darker than the color scheme of the upper window border - i've attached screenshots of Rhythmbox and Iceweasel so you can compare. I've tried KDE 4.7 with Arch Linux and Firefox there looks OK just like Rhythmbox. It is a small detail but it bugs me...

Fourth - i have problem with the KDE theme for Firefox which i've installed. Without it Iceweasel doesn't look that good. With it, the find menu (activated with ctrl+f) doesn't work - instead of the regular search field just a very small box appears. I've posted a screenshot for that as well.

Debian :: How To Make Windows-loader Default And Hide Grub If Possible

Mar 11, 2015

Background: I am dual booting Debian and Window 7. Wanted to make windows-loader default and hide grub if possible. Google search took me here: [URL].... (third answer, about editing grub)

Make Windows (ANY variant) the default Grub2 menu option.
Description: This sets Windows as the default boot option, and (with NO user action) the PC will auto-launch Windows on startup.

A. sudo update-grub #List your current menu items
B. Edit setup file
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
GRUB_DEFAULT=”Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sda1″ #Set the boot default to your Windows boot partition
[WARNING: Just setting 'GRUB_DEFAULT=n', will NOT work after kernel updates, etc.
Save the file and close.]
sudo update-grub

Question: I must have done something wrong, for update-grub (as root) now gives this: "/usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig: 6: /etc/default/grub: 2: not found"

What should I do now to make grub as it was in the beginning?

[By the way, it's been very difficult to get Debian related pages...]

Debian :: Make Java Default Application To Open JAR Files

Feb 4, 2016

i cannot seem to find a proper way to make Java my default application to open .jar files. I just made a new Debian 8.3 install on my laptop HP Pavilion G6 and the default application for opening .jar files is the Archive Manager. But when i go to "Open with.." section on right-clicking the .jar file, i get no JRE or JDK option to choose. I just installed the openjdk 7. I can manually run them from the bash, but it would be much more convenient if i just double-clicked it. Here is what i get when i run several commands in the bash :

1) which java ->Code: Select all /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/bin/java
2) java -version -> Code: Select alljava version "1.7.0_95"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.6.4) (7u95-2.6.4-1~deb8u1)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.95-b01, mixed mode)
3) echo $PATH: Code: Select all/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/bin:/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk-amd64/bin: /usr/local/ sbin:/usr/local/bin:/ usr/ sbin:/usr/bin:/ sbin:/bin
4) javac -version : Code: Select alljavac 1.7.0_95

General :: USB Memory Stick Has Doubled In Size - Why Is So?

Nov 24, 2010

I have an OCZ Mini-Kart USB stick which says 2GB on it, and it has been a 2GB stick for the last 3 years. However, I recently put it into a PC running XP (which had no viruses as far as I am aware) and all of the files in the single subdirectory became corrupted and unreadable. All files at the root of the USB stick were fine, and I could still boot from it (I had Puppy linux installed).

I looked to see if the corrupted files in the subdirectory were recoverable, but they were all inaccessible, (with freshly mangled file-names containing multiple copies of the characters '�' and '=' amongst others), and reporting file sizes of up to 1.9GB each. I examined the memory stick with fdisk and with Gparted, and saw that it was reporting two 2GB partitions, which was certainly not the case before, as I had recreated the partition table several times in the past.

I removed all partitions, created a new partition table and recreated a single partition, which is now 4GB in size. I have trashed it and recreated it three times, formatting it with ext3, ext2 and finally FAT32, all of which reported a partition size of 4GB. I currently have a 4GB FAT 32 partition, and have tested it by successfully copying a 3GB .iso file to it.

Although it's nice to have a 4GB memory stick, it does seem rather odd and I no longer trust it with my data.
