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?

Debian Programming :: Using Glib To Create Menu File

May 12, 2015

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);

[Code] ....

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?

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?

Ubuntu Security :: AVG Free Edition Does Not Seem To Create A Shortcut For Itself?

Apr 26, 2010

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

Ubuntu :: Create Shortcut To Media Folder In Home Directory?

Dec 14, 2010

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.
