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.

Debian Multimedia :: Can't See Windows Open / Make It Possible?

Mar 9, 2010

I've had this for a while now and though I might as well do something about it.
When I have more than one or more windows open none of the show up on the taskbar, I'll show you what I mean.:

Although you can't see it from the picture, I actually have two windows open, both of which should show up on the taskbar (1.).
I can open windows by clicking on the button marked 2.

Is there something simple that I have missed?

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 :: Skype Starting Every Time When Open Interactive Root Shell

Jan 20, 2015

I recently "upgraded" to the latest skype and now every time I open an interactive root shell, up pops skype. I can close skype then control-C in the terminal window to get the shell I want, but this is annoying to say the least. Maybe my google-foo is off, but all I can find is articles on how to run skype as root, which is no use. I've tried searching the startup files for "skype" (case independant), but so far all I can find is "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/bin/skype" in the root .bashrc which shouldn't be starting the app.

what could be causing this?

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?

OpenSUSE :: 11.4 - New Windows Open At Wrong Maximized Size

Mar 30, 2011

OpenSUSE 11.4 / kernel / Gnome 2.32.1
Video: Intel 945G (on motherboard)
Monitor: Acer AL1716 @ 1024x768
Driver: whatever 11.4 auto-installed for the card

Having a strange video problem after recently up-ing to 11.4. When new windows open maximized, they are opening at the wrong size (slightly too small) resulting in a distorted view including 'broken' fonts (missing pixels). If I unmaximize the new window, and then re-maximize it, it now maximizes to the correct size and everything is fine.

a bug in video card driver.

My problem is -
For some unknown reason, I can't resize the Konsole window horizontally while I can still resize vertically. This is bad as the corrent width of Konsole window fills the entire screen!

Ubuntu :: Make Windows Key Open The Panel?

Mar 9, 2011

I'm trying to find a way to make my Windows key the shortcut to opening my start panel in Lubuntu. I've found easy instructions for Ubuntu, but Lubuntu doesn't have the keyboard shortcuts utility that Ubuntu has (at least I can't find it).

I found some instructions for editing a config file but I can't find the command for opening the panel, and I've seen conflicting information about how the Windows key is written (some say W, some say Super_L), so I hesitate to start playing around with that file when I'm only guessing.

Ubuntu :: Make An Image Of Windows Partition To Save Time And Effort When Wanting To Restore?

Aug 6, 2010

Am quite new to Ubuntu (10.04) and have recently reinstalled XP. I want to make an image of my windows partition to save time and effort when wanting to restore this. I read the Ubuntu documentation on Drive Imaging [URL] and am wondering if I've done things ok?

I've booted using the Live CD. Windows is on sda1 and is a 50GB partition. I have a hidden ntfs partition on the same hard drive at sda9 of 10GB. The first time I tried this I got an error regarding my output file saying "Not a directory". I'm assuming that was because I hadn't mounted sda9. It also reported an error saying permission denied on sda1. I then mounted sda9

sudo mount /dev/sda9 /mnt

I then changed to root as I thought not being in that was why I was getting the permissions error.

sudo -s
I've then done the following;
dd if=/dev/sda1 bs=1024 | gzip > /mnt/sda1.bin.gz

The terminal window is just showing a flashing cursor in the bottom left corner under the above command line input. Is the fact that my mount partition being smaller than my windows partition going to cause a problem or will gzip solve that? My Windows install occupies about 7.5GB of the 50GB partion.

I'm not sure if dd is just taking a long time to complete the task???

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Make Speakers And Headphone Play At Same Time

Jan 31, 2011

I own a netbook (samsung nf210 to be exact) which has Linux Mint 10 installed. What I want to do is to make both, headphones and speakers, play the same output at the same time. I believe it is possible to make it since many people are facing such condition and treat it as a pulseaudio bug (or smth like that) And it would be perfect if it was possible to easily switch between the modified configuration (dual output) and original configuration. I've noticed there are some profiles (analog output, duplex, surround etc.). Is there any way to modify those profiles? If it was, I could modify the Analog Surround Output 4.0 profile and assign rear speakers to headphones and front speakers to internal speakers of my computer.

Debian Hardware :: How To Make Two Monitors To Work At Same Time

Jul 13, 2014

Recently I've bought this motherboard : [URL] ...

And this graphic card : [URL] ....

Now I have attached two monitors on the computer,the first one (the monitor that is working) is attached to the DVI port of the nvidia graphic card,the second one is attached on the VGA port of the embedded graphic card of the motherboard.

Since I would like to play a little with blender,I need to use two monitors at the same time because in this way I can follow more video tutorials at the same time.

I'm using this version of debian :

Linux ziomario-Z87-HD3 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.60-1+deb7u1 x86_64 GNU/Linux

and this is the informations concerning the graphics card installed on the computer :

root@ziomario-Z87-HD3:/home/ziomario# lspci -nn | grep VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Haswell Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0412] (rev 06) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation Device [10de:11c0] (rev a1)

root@ziomario-Z87-HD3:/home/ziomario# xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 16384 x 16384

[Code] ....

How to use my two monitors together ?

Debian Multimedia :: When Open An Open Office Document From An NFS Share It Always Opens As Readonly

Apr 27, 2010

When I open an open office document from an NFS share it always opens as readonly. This was a problem I had on Arch linux and the fix was to change the locking options in the soffice script but I've tried that fix here and it doesn't work. I've seen a lot of discussions but they all go back to changing the locking options in soffice, has anyone got any alternative fixes or one that definitely works with locking?

Is there anyone here that knows how to change it?Also I was wondering whether a png could be used as a tty background. Though I am possibly pushing the limitations of tty with that one lol.

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 allĀ /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
