Debian :: Restore Min / Max Buttons In 8.3

Mar 15, 2016

I'm trying to get the minimize/maximize buttons back for open windows in debian 8.3...

In gnome-tweak-tool the button field is blank with no options.

dconf-editor also does not have the relevant field (wm) mentioned in the answers.

I've tried logging on with both gnome & gnome classic with same result.

Debian :: Can't Move Between Panel Buttons

Apr 12, 2011

I've had this problem before in Ubuntu but I don't remember how I fixed it. I have buttons for the open applications on the bottom panel. If I move from one to the other with the mouse, the button highlight doesn't follow. I have to go out of the panel and back in to a different button. I removed and reinstalled the applet to no effect.

Debian :: Configure Volume Buttons Without Pulseaudio

Dec 25, 2015

I disabled pulse audio in favor of just working with jack, alsa_in & alsa_out and everything works pretty well except for one thing.

When I enable pulseaudio I can control the volume with my multimedia keys, volume up, volume down, mute.

If I kill pulseaudio not only do I not have volume controls but the little widget in the top bar seems to be broken.

I looked in my /etc/acpi/ folder and see these files relating to volume

Code: Select all#!/bin/sh

test -f /usr/share/acpi-support/key-constants || exit 0

. /usr/share/acpi-support/key-constants
acpi_fakekey $KEY_VOLUMEUP

[Code] ....

running xev i get this output for those buttons:

Code: Select allFocusIn event, serial 36, synthetic NO, window 0x1e00001,
    mode NotifyUngrab, detail NotifyAncestor

KeymapNotify event, serial 36, synthetic NO, window 0x0,
    keys:  0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   
           0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   

[Code] ....

nothing comes up for those keys, the terminal cursor just blinks.

also one more thing, those keys are set to shortcuts in the settings->keyboard->shortcut menu.

I can control my device with the amixer so I would like to just bind amixers functions to the keys but I don't really know how to go about doing that.

How can I bind amixers commands with those keys?

Debian :: Sound Buttons Work In Gnome But Not KDE

Sep 22, 2009

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop with a fresh install of Lenny and KDE 3.5.10.On the computer there are these 7 Keys. I only care about the 3 related to sound. Now everything works perfect in Gnome, but when I switch to KDE, the 3 audio buttons don't work. I can't seem to figure out why and get them working. Does anyone have a solution for this? Again, they work in GNOME but not KDE.

Debian Multimedia :: GUI For Customizing Keybindings To 4th And 5th Mouse Buttons?

Mar 21, 2011

I'm trying to find a GUI program (not a terminal command) to bind the 4th and 5th buttons on my mouse to ALT+Tab and Escape. I tried BTNX however I encountered the error "btnx-config needs the file /etc/btnx/events to run". A good example of what I'm looking for with screenshots on it's site is X-Mouse Button Control which I've been using on XP however it's not available for Linux.

Debian Hardware :: HP QuickPlay Buttons Enable / Disable

Nov 4, 2014

My laptop has a some multimedia keys for quick access. They are causing a common issue with many HP laptops easily found on the Internet ( volume keeps turning up and down). Apparently the ultimate solution is to simply disable this buttons. On the next page, under the title "Multimedia Keys" it is explained how this QuickPlay buttons had to be enabled to work in Etch. URL....Now, I have installed Jessie, and I do not know if thew were automatically installed or not. But they are causing a very annoying problem. I want to simply disable these "Multimedia keys" so they do not produce any input.

Debian Multimedia :: Compiz Takes Away Window Buttons In Squeeze?

May 24, 2010

I`ve triple checked this and every time I run compiz any window opened has no minimise maximize or any other buttons for some reason but I don`t know why.If I exit compiz from the icon there are still no window buttons until I log out and then back in again. I can`t find this mentioned elsewhere but it`s happening every time in Squeeze AMD64 fresh installation having only downloaded AWN and compiz (tried this without AWN running and same result).It seems to have a drawing issue as if I run AWN then only three icons can show up on the dock any others are just thin white lines but I have no idea why my buttons dissappear. Anyone able to enlighten me?EDIT: Well I realised that by default the window decorations bit was not enabled, enabling it solves the first issue so the white lines instead of icons in AWN can`t be related so will look into that seperately.

Debian Multimedia :: LXDE - Getting Window Maximize / Minimize Buttons To Look Bigger

I am using Debian Wheezy with LXDE and I am using the monitor resolution as 1280x1024. Now the Window maximize, minimize buttons look tiny and its pretty irritating. Is there anyway I can make them bigger ? I tried googling but whatever documentation I found was regarding GNOME not LXDE since not many people use it.

Debian :: Backup Linux Installation And Restore On New HDD

Jun 10, 2015

I have Lenovo IdeaPad z510 laptop.My HDD SMART status is currently "failure". As my laptop is under warranty I can return it to lenovo. So I want to backup as much data as possible (everything is readable). I currently have 3 operating systems: linux xubuntu 14.10, debian 8 and windows 8.1 (triple-boot?). I want to back up only my current debian installation. There are 3 partitions for debian: root (about 50GB), home (>200GB) and swap. I know that I can backup the whole partition using:

Code: Select alldd -if=/dev/sdaX -of=/locaton/of/backup -something

And create .tar file with the whole home directory.

how to restore it later. In /etc/fstab there are references to UUIDs, and as I understand, with new HDD these UUIDs would be different. And possibly the whole partition table would be different. And how would I restore GRUB?I can't make full image of my disk simply because I don't have disk to store it on.Is it possible to create backup on my current debian installation without actually making full HDD backup? Would it work if I would install debian on new disk, then from LiveCD overwrite it with my backup and modify /etc/fstab to match new partitions?

Debian :: Log In Appearance Had Changed - Restore Back?

Sep 10, 2010

I did a bunch of updates, in sid, no issues. But when I rebooted the next day the log in had chanded. No problems logging in, the appearance had changed, and you now have to use the mouse to click on your name to open the password box, where before you could hit enter and get the same results. It is not much, but I have been trying to to restore it back with out much luck. I've played with gdm and gdm3 and a couple of other things but no luck. I did see a update for log in but have not been able to figure out the next step.

Debian :: Restore The 'full' Grub Menu?

Aug 5, 2010

Upon booting, the existing grub menu shows the Debian OS, but I also have Ubuntu installed on the same hard disk. It does not show in the menu. Previously I had Debian, Ubuntu, and Mint. In Ubuntu config file (menu.lst) I wanted to delete Mint and an old Ubuntu. I did so. In doing this I must have removed the 'full' menu.lst,leaving only Debian. So now I cannot boot into the new Ubuntu. I presently have only two OS on the hard disk: Debian and Ubuntu. I cant see Ubuntu, How do I correct this problem?

Debian Multimedia :: How To Have Volume Buttons On Laptop Change 'pcm' Channel Volume Rather Than 'master'?

Jun 13, 2010

I'm running squeeze (last updated today), and everything has been working great. There is only thing that would simplify my life minutely..Anybody know how can I have the volume buttons on my laptop change the "pcm" channel volume rather than "master"? If they could control pcm, then I could adjust the volume coming out of my headphones or my computer speaker (both controlled by pcm, but not master...seems strange to me) with just one click.I tried to find this info online, but all results seem to refer to an older version. The simple "click here, set this" solution no longer is possible.

Debian Multimedia :: Laptop Volume Buttons And GNOME Volume Are Not Synchronized

Debian Squeeze 6.0.0 on a Thinkpad T43, sound volume is not synchronized between the laptop volume buttons and GNOME's Volume Applet. So if I turn the volume all the way down with the physical buttons, the volume applet may still indicate 75%.I did not have this problem in Debian Lenny. Pressing the volume buttons used to show a volume bar on the screen, as did pressing the mute button.

Debian :: Trying To Restore / Move Windows 7 Installation Partition

Jan 18, 2016

I had an older PC on which I had two SATA drives and an IDE one and on the latter I had Windows 7 installed (I kept it on that drive since I'm not using Windows 7 that often, I'm primarily using Debian as my daily go-to OS), but since then I got a new PC which has no connectivity for IDE, so I had to decommision the drive, and before I did that, I backed up the Windows 7 partition (and the second partition which I used mostly for storing sofware and stuff that I wouldn't want to get wiped after a fresh Windows install) using dd.

Not reading up on this on the internet, doing so with the intention to restore the partition image on the same spot on the disk, but since the SSD is larger than the IDE drive, I made the partitions on it bigger, so there's no chance the Windows 7 partition to be on the same spot on the disk. I tried booting into Windows 7 from GRUB after it successfully detected the Win7 install on the second partition on the SSD, but it just leaves me with a blank screen with a blinking white cursor, so I'm guessing it's not going to fly again. So my question to you: is it possible to ressurect the Windows 7 installation, avoiding having to reinstall Windows? (which would severly complicate things, having to backup and wipe the Debian install I have on the first partition...)

So far I've tried this to fix the Windows 7 install by pointing at the right disk "coordinates": [URL] ...., but I can't seem to get it to work, all I get is some error in regards to not being able to detect the disk's geometry (I think it was the number heads I couldn't figure out to input in the command line), so I couldn't fix it.

Debian Configuration :: Computer Won't Boot After Dd Image Restore

Mar 1, 2016

I have a Debian Jessie 32 bits machine with standard partitions : one EFI, one for the root system and a swap.

I did a dd image backup of it hard drive thinking i would be easy to restore it or clone to another device... but it seems it is not that simple ! My PC won't boot : no bootable drive found !

I did the same once with a 64 bit Debian Jessie which i fixed using an ubuntu live CD with boot-repair, but here with the 32 bits version it doesn't work : it keeps saying i have an EFI incompatible partition and i should use a 64 bits linux...

Note : i boot-repair from a 64 bits ubuntu live cd. Should i use a 32 bits version ? Because i can"t make a 32 bits Debian live CD to boot, usb key won't show up in boot options (32 bits install CD works fine)

I ha read some things and tried some others but nothing works

Grub and EFI are really obscure for me...

How could i fix my debian 32 boot ?

Or how can i properly clone my debian 32 on other PC ? am i missing something using dd ? should i use another tool ?
