try to keep file system organized on XP instead of C:program files*everything goes blindly here I use C:MEDIA*category*application_name.So where in Debian on the hard drive are programs actually installed to? There's a couple programs that the sites merely gave me zip files instead of installers that were also not like in the package manager so I'd like to know where to extract those files.Also how do I create a shortcut in the "start" menu to the executable?
newbie here..loving suse...but a question on package management...I have to run the etracer command in a shell to launch the program "extreme tux racer" for my son. it does not show up in a menu anywhere.how do i create a shortcut either on desktop or in the game menu?
I am using GTK and C and on my application I have a Drag and drop feature.
Code: Select allicon_view = gtk_icon_view_new_with_model(create_and_fill_model(pALP)); g_object_unref(pALP->list_store); /* destroy model automatically with view */ gtk_icon_view_set_selection_mode(GTK_ICON_VIEW(icon_view), GTK_SELECTION_SINGLE); gtk_icon_view_set_reorderable(GTK_ICON_VIEW(icon_view), TRUE); gtk_icon_view_set_text_column(GTK_ICON_VIEW(icon_view), COL_DISPLAY_NAME);
The drag and drop works fine but when I exit the application and enter again, the changes of the drops are not saved, meaning the new location is not saved. I understand that in order to save the location of the drops I need to create a menu file and write some xml, But how do I do this? it there another way?
I'm just wondering if anyone knows the command to access the menu bar, as in the file edit view bar, not the applications places system one. I'm trying to create a keyboard shortcut to access the menu bar and I need to know the command for this.
I've added Warsow.i386 (0.5) to my Applications > Games menu as a shortcut, but whenever I try to run it, my screen goes black for a second and then returns to desktop. Running the same file from its folder in /home runs the game fine.Is this common problem with shortcuts or is it just me and the game?
I want to create a shortcut to run a program called RoomEqWizard but the only way I know how to run the program is to open a terminal and type the location to where the program is and call the program file. I already tried creating a shortcut on the main menu but I get a "error creating the child process for this terminal" message every time...
I'm using two OS in parallel, and all of my data are stored in partition D. I want to create a shorcut to a specific folder inside it, e.x: D:/path/to/folder and put it in the Ubuntu Desktop (~/Desktop).

After upgrading Opera browser, by old shortcut for it became invalid. The new was added but the old one stayed and is invalid. I can not remove it through normal means as it doesn't appear in the menu editing window but it's there in the menu. Is there any way to manually remove items from the menu? Or to rebuild the entire menu?
I downloaded AVG Free Edition as protection after I accidentally visited a drive-by-download site (which was most likely trying to download a windows virus, I don't quite know what the file extension was on the file it tried to make me download 'cause I got out of that trap faster than a bat out of He...Well you get the picture), and it does not seem that the .deb package directly from the AVG Free Linux download page fully installs. Synaptic acknowledges the package's existence, yet there are no shortcuts on the Desktop or on the system menu. I followed the link to AVG from this Ubuntu.So, perhaps, someone at AVG has some explaining to do on why their free for Linux doesn't seem to work. I don't know maybe I'm overthinking my vulnerability, I'm just used to the environment of paranoia developed by using Windo$e
Does someone know how to create desktop shortcuts to programs (e.g to rdesktop) to all users on Ubuntu 10.04 ?Where (in which file) do I put the shortcut so it will appare (clickable) on the dekstop for all users logging into the machine
using the command ln -s ~/Desktop ~/.local/share/Trash I get this message.ln: creating symbolic link `/home/denish/.local/share/Trash': File exists But the link isn't in my desktop. So I tried accessing the Trash folder using cd. I cd into ~/.local/share then try the following command.cd Trash I get this message. bash: cd: Trash: No such file or directory When I type ls in the share folder I get the following.
gsettings-data-convert gvfs-metadata Trash
So the trash folder is in there but i can't access it. Why? Also I want a computer shortcut in my desktop like in windows where I can access all the folders from.
Here is the issue:I create saome variables to make shortcut to some directories I go frequently (so, I then I type, e.g. cd $P_DIR). Of Course before that I put a valid value into P_DIR variabe.Also, alias, asalias cls=clearSo, I type cls, and is the same as the commando clear (but shorter)What I want to do is that those variables as aliases stay in the computer when I reboot or turn off and turn on.So, I put "somewhere" (this is the place(s) maybe one for variables, and other for aliases, turn of the computer, and when I turn on, the aliases and variables are still there
I use a few command line programs quite often such as nano and mpc. I'd like to create a shortcut icon to open them rather than opening a terminal and then typing in the program name to open it. For example, how could i open konsole with nano opened in one step?
I currently have an ASUS eebox which is running XBMC Live which includes a stripped down version of Ubuntu. The computer will be used by various people within a teaching environment and I have successfully installed launchers for Openoffice which can be opened within XBMC.
I am trying to the make the experience for the end user as simple as possible as the vast majority will have never used Linux before. I want to get to a point where they can open Openoffice, plug in their USB stick and navigate quickly to their files. At the moment when the program is launched and I try and navigate for a file it automatically starts in the Home Folder of xbmc. So I have navigate up a couple of times, then find the /media directory where the USB stick has been mounted and so on. What I was hoping to do is create a shortcut within the Home Directory which takes you straight to the Media folder where usb is mounted.
I have already attempted and created a folder within the Home directory and called it usbpen.
I have then added the following line into fstab /media /home/xbmc/usbpen none bind 0 0
Now when I reboot the machine and navigate to the home/xbmc/usbpen folder I can see the Drive name of the USB device mounted in /media but I cannot navigate through any of the files, I am greeted with a read error message. So the shortcut is only allowing me to see the device name only.
be aware that due to running XBMC Live I do not have a Windows manager installed and therefore everything must be done through the terminal.
I wrote bash script that uses zenity and a choice to install various programs, tested it and it works, but only when I call it from terminal. I wanted to add it in gnome main menu. The script is /home/eee/zenity.sh. In accessories I added an entry with command:
Code: /home/eee/zenity.sh , but since there is no terminal it starts zenity, but it does not work. I have also tried Code: gksu gnome-terminal -x /home/eee/zenity.sh
