Debian Multimedia :: LXDE Desktop And Taskbar Icon Configuration?

Aug 1, 2011

The first issue is adding launch icons to the task bar. I can add launchers, but cannot figure out how to link them to applications. It is only half a problem, because putting links on the desktop is easy, but I prefer having launchers on the task bar so the desktop is not cluttered.The big problem is placement of desktop icons. I like to put icons on the right side of the screen, and more importantly, I like to group related icons. For example, if I had a folder or document for Linux and another for Debian, I want them grouped together. I also like arranging by category: folders in one column, documents and images in another and launchers (if any) in a third. However, if there is way to enable desktop icons to be moved, I cannot figure it out. Icons are fixed on the left side of the screen with folders first in alphabetical order, then documents/images in alphabetical or numerical order, and launch icons last.My guess is icons can be moved, but I am not computer literate enough to figure it out. It does not make sense that the task bar can be placed on the top, bottom, left or right, but desktop icons cannot be moved. I have tried every preference setting, but there are no relevant options.Am I over-looking something that is not obvious or is it a strange deficiency with LXDE?

Debian Multimedia :: Testing/KDE 4 - Wrong Image For Taskbar Icon Shortcut?

Oct 5, 2010

I've got a desktop "konsole" shortcut that works great, it has a "konsole" icon on it that fits well.

I've copied this desktop shortcut to a taskbar shortcut (via drag'n drop).

The result is a usable shortcut, but with a wrong icon image.

I've reproduced the problem three times for different apps and obtained three times the same icon (but the shortcut is however good).

If I open the configuration popup, it displays the correct icon ...

Indeed, I found a way to change the icon : I must modify the icon of the filetype associated with "desktop" filetype ... but after a reboot, all icons will changed Strange isn't it ? have a look of the screenshot

Debian Multimedia :: Why No Desktop Icon With Automount

Sep 9, 2010

I have a 2 Computers:
Computer A has a RAID array in it, and everything works perfectly fine. When Computer A powers on, the RAID array is automatically mounted, mdadm takes care of all of the things it's supposed to, and an icon for the RAID array is automatically placed on the desktop. Everything Just Works (TM).
Computer B is configured similarly to Computer A. They have identical configuration files (at least, all the ones I've checked are identical), and when Computer B powers on, the RAID array is automatically mounted, mdadm takes care of all of the things it's supposed to, BUT, NO icon for the RAID array is automatically placed on the desktop. How do I change that?

They have identical /etc/fstab's (the lines in bold are the ones that matter):
Computer A
mediaserver:/home/mediaserver/Desktop# cat /etc/fstab .....

Computer B
mediaserver:/home/mediaserver# cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information .....

They have identical /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf's
Computer A
mediaserver:/home/mediaserver/Desktop# cat /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf
DEVICE partitions
CREATE owner=root group=disk mode=0660 auto=yes
HOMEHOST <system>
MAILADDR root
ARRAY /dev/md0 level=raid5 num-devices=4 metadata=0.90 UUID=82bfcecf:5cd4d557:2f1fbd23:68e2797c

Computer B
mediaserver:/home/mediaserver# cat /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf
DEVICE partitions
CREATE owner=root group=disk mode=0660 auto=yes
HOMEHOST <system>
MAILADDR root
ARRAY /dev/md0 level=raid5 num-devices=4 metadata=0.90 UUID=6c24c0e5:84ead07e:c109596b:d7e29b7e

The outputs of mount are also very similar:
Computer A
mediaserver:/home/mediaserver/Desktop# mount
/dev/hda1 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
procbususb on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/md0 on /mnt/arrayCOMP_A type xfs (rw)

Computer B
mediaserver@mediaserver:~$ mount
/dev/hdc1 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
procbususb on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/md0 on /mnt/arrayCOMP_B type xfs (rw)
mediaserver@mediaserver:~$

So how do I get an icon for the device /dev/md0 to automagically appear on the desktop every time the device is mounted (which occurs every time the computer boots up)?

Debian Multimedia :: How To Remove Icon From Desktop

Jul 25, 2011

I installed aptosid ( ex-sidux), based on debian sid. It uses xfce manager.

On the desktop I have many icons ( like other patitions, trash, ..), I want to remove them, where to do it,they don't appear in the Desktop directory (they are not links).

By the way, I think, if I really understand it ??, xrandr replaces xorg, I can't find the file used by xrandr unlike xorg uses xorg.conf.

Debian Configuration :: Using Live LXDE Wireless WDA-1320?

Sep 11, 2011

I do recall being able to at least figure out Debian enough that I got my wireless working (a few years back). Today I popped in a fresh Live LXDE DVD. I can't find that my wireless is recognized, nor can I find any graphical network management utilities. Nothing network related. Perhaps its all in the command line, but I'm not too familiar with it (though I'm not averse to following instructions if I can use that to simply fix this issue).

I did look at documentation first. To the best of my ability anyway. I could not use it to help myself. Once I get internet working, at least I can trouble shoot on the Debian installation itself, which makes the process much easier. Having to switch out to a Windows installation is a pain.

Debian Multimedia :: Remote Desktop Configuration Files

May 14, 2010

If i got gnome i may go to the top-panel: choose system, choose preferences and go to "remote desktop" and make my settings (allow, ask for allow, password, and other stuff). I don't want to be bound to gnome (though i like it, thats not the problem).Which config-files are the ones i am looking for?

I did search the web, but i can't find useful how-to's, explanations, etc.Cause what i find is related to the path i described above (gnome: top-panel, preferences...)Which is the app/tool which pops up and says:"someone wants to access, you want to allow it, yes or no?". The performance of VNC is lousy comopared to NX. Lousy is the friendly version. What might i be doing wrong?i usually do it from a Debian-host to a VirtualBox-guest.I am mainly asking for how-to's/docus and stuff like that. Links. Explanations are welcome too. Of course.

Debian Hardware :: Wheezy 7.8 With LXDE Desktop - Task Bar Volume Control No Longer Functions

Feb 11, 2015

Running Wheezy 7.8 with LXDE desktop. I have noticed that the task bar volume control no longer seems to function. Volume can be controlled by apps, such as Youtube in Google Chrome. The volume control used to work. I really don't know exactly when this started but probably after the last update on Monday, Feb. 10 2015.

I have checked the PulseAudio settings and don't see any way there. Ran a sound test and the volume can be controlled from the PulseAudio panel but NOT the task bar volume control.

Here is a bit of interesting additional info. When I play the audio thru my analog speakers the volume control has no affect. But when I play the sound thru my USB headset, the volume control works. Very strange.

* more or less solved. still not exactly what I want but it works, mostly.

Debian Multimedia :: Enable Hotkeys With LXDE On Jessie

Apr 27, 2015

I've been using debian for well over a year, previously with the gnome desktop. I never really liked how much memory and CPU it used, but many things like the hotkeys worked out of the box, and it was relatively easy to configure. After upgrading to Jessie I decided I'd give LXDE a go given it was lightweight and seemed more complete than e17.

However, after over a day struggling to get everything to work just right, I am still unable to use use my hotkeys (volume control, brightness control, etc.). The volume can be controlled through the GUI, but the brightness seems to have no control whatsoever. In any event, I installed the drivers and firmware for the hardware and used the instructions in the link to try and configure the key bindings, but nothing has worked: [URL] ....

:Questions#Change_hotkeys I'm not sure what to do now.

Debian Multimedia :: Faulty Icons In LXDE Task Bar Since 8.0

May 2, 2015

I saw that on every computer in which I installed LXDE on Debian 8 (the problem was not existing on Debian 7.8.0)

So I decided to use mate-desktop-environment but a brand new problem (always ) made his apparition when I try to use tightvncserver on a Mate desktop (no task bar, and memory growing GB after GB up to the memory explosion after 1 or 2 minutes with 16GB RAM -I will post another subject for that once I will know more things about it - since it is, after all, an huge problem causing the computer to crash if "reboot" our "vncserver -kill :1" is not quickly done)

But here talking about LXDE taskbar: others LXDE users, do you have this problem with the icons ?

I just log into LXDE with root... but there has got to be a better way yes? But that didn't work anyway...
