Debian Multimedia :: Disable Gnome But Start Window Manager

Aug 16, 2011

In the murky world of X11, window managers, session managers and desktop environments I cannot seem to figure out how to achieve the following in Squeeze:

1. Leave Gnome installed, but prevent it from launching when typing startx
2. Have both X11 and my prefered default window manager (blackbox) startup when I type startx (or similar)

My ultimate goal is to leave Gnome installed but "dormant" and when I do a remote ssh -X be able to use X11 forwarding with blackbox.

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

Feb 27, 2011

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.

Fedora :: Launch Application With Root Privileges From Gnome Desktop Shortcut.

May 12, 2010

I have a java program that needs to be launched with root privileges (from an account that doesn't have root privileges) from a desktop shortcut. The command would look something like this: java -jar /file/location/whatever.jar I've searched and searched and can't figure out how to do this. EDIT*** I would like it to pop up and ask for the root password before it launches the application.

General :: Secure Installation Of Debian Using Logical Volume Manager

Aug 31, 2011

I am installing Debian for the very first time and having read websites similar to [url] I have come across parts of the installation which I do not understand.

For example, I have created logical volumes using the logical volume manager however am unclear what the message regarding writing changes to disk before configuring Logical Volume Manager means.

Once I have created the volume group, I am presented with a window that provides me with the ability to

Display configuration details
Create volume groups
Create logical volume
Delete logical volume
Extend volume group

Option 2 is pretty self-explanatory however am unsure whether it is advisable to segment directories between 2 or more volume groups. What benefits does it serve?

Option 5 provides me to extend a volume group however am unsure how this works?
Does it mean I can assign free space available one 1 physical drive to the existing volume group or does it mean I can assign free space available on a second phyical drive or does it mean both? How does it affect security, performance, etc?

Currently the only way I can see the logical volumes I have created by selection Option 4. Is there any other way? How do most people keep track of the logical volumes they have created e.g. checking off against a checklist, etc?

Next I have the ability to map the logical volumes to mount points however am confused what purpose the none mount point serves as I have the option to select it?

What are mount options for?

What do I use labels for?

What are reserved blocks for?

What does typical usage refer to?

How does the option to copy data from another partition work? What is it for?

Ubuntu :: Gnome Desktop Won't Start

Jan 29, 2011

I've recently updated to Ubuntu 10.10. At first I had no problems, but after the third time I logged in, my desktop background appeared (and nothing else) but quickly flashed to a black screen with some error messages (too fast for me to see) and I got sent to the login screen. After trying some more times I got the same problem with some small differences(sometimes my desktop icons showed up, other times it took a couple of minutes before I got kicked out).

I tried running startx from the terminal but got one of these two error messages: Server already running or could not find any listening ports. If I run "sudo startx -- :1" to switch the port I login fine, but as the root user. Gnome works perfectly here and when I login in gnome-failsafe. This leads to believe it has something to do with my user configuration. I've restarted xorg server, installed gnome-main-menu and made sure if got the current gnome package.

General :: Window Manager - Running As A Desktop With KDE/Gnome But Without 'X Server'?

Oct 14, 2010

I'm curious, I believe that one of the ways that OSX make the GUI experience of *nix more 'snappy' was to ditch X and run the window manager more directly on the hardware.

If I'm looking to run Linux on a desktop, and have no interest in sending Windows to other machines on the network, can I run KDE or Gnome with no 'X' to eliminate that ever-so-slight lag with the window manager experience.

I guess basically what I'm asking is is there an equivalent of quartz for Linux?

General :: Gnome - Lightweight Window Manager For Virtual Desktop / Multimon?

Jan 16, 2011

Previous used Ubuntu Gnome with Compiz but for my basic spec intel macbook (4 years old) its a little too heavyweight. So for now Im back on my macbook with os x, but now considering going back to Linux. Im looking for a window manager that has the following properties:

Supports virtual desktop (need 4 minimum) Works well with multi monitors - can move an app with shortcut from one monitor to the other (on same virtual desktop) Can remember window position (i.e. open vim on 2 monitor) - however must coerce everything back to first screen when 2nd screen is unplugged Keyboard shortcut friendly Not too hard to install Works well with minimum hardware such as integrated graphics.

Fedora :: Moved Desktop (physically) And Now Gnome 3 Won't Start

May 24, 2011

Our office moved yesterday. I shut down the computer cleanly and physically moved it to the new location. On startup, the wallpaper shows on both monitors, and the login screen. But, when I log in, I get failed to load session "gnome"

I am using Fedora Core 15. The only hardware that changed is I swapped out my cordless usb mouse for a corded one because I left the dongle at home. How I can I troubleshoot the problem and get my computer up and running again?

Ubuntu :: After Update Of 10.04 - Can't Start Gnome Desktop After Login

Jun 10, 2010

I use ubuntu 10.04 in VirtualBox (upgrated from 09.10), host os is Win7.

3-4 days ago update of ubuntu required restart of Ubuntu (linux kernel was updated).

After 3 days (i.e. yesterday) I restarted the system. I found that flashlib in Chrome became to work unstable, some artefact appeared, and only scrolling down-up in browser allowed to update view of screen. I run update manager. It showed ~88Mb of updates for last 3 days.

After download of updates, apply changes was failed! I faced this first time (!). I remember message like "can not synchronize file /usr/share/..." or something like that.

I restarted ubuntu again. Now I could not login. System hangs after login. No Gnome menu appears etc.

I tried to fix issue using dpkg. I found that some lib (ure) related to OpenOffice was not assigned (version XXX required, but bersion XXXY found). dpkg offered to solve this by some combination. I did so. Then I run dpkg update, and no errors appeared.

Also I updated VirtualBox to version 3.2.4, updated VirualBox Additions via console terminal in ubuntu.

But still I can't fix problem with gdm/gnome.

dpkg-reconfigure gnome-*** did not help for me.

I tried to check logs, but I have not found something "interesting".

At the moment terminal is the only way to login.

General :: Start Up Gnome Desktop From Remote Terminal?

Jul 27, 2009

I looked around for threads addressing this issue and some have come close to answering it, but I have yet to see a definitive yes or no. Anyway - Here's my issue:

I can SSH into my home computer (Ubuntu 9.04 running Gnome) from work (Win XP Pro) using RealVNC via Putty tunnels. This has been working flawlessly for me for awhile now. I was messing around in the terminal window and accidentally rebooted the linux box (home computer) while I was at work. No big deal I thought. So I re-start the Putty connection, and it is back up in no time. Then I try to start the VNC connection, and no go, connection refused. I remember seeing that in order for the VNC connection to work, I had to be logged into the Gnome desktop already on the Ubuntu box.

Is it possible to log in and start up a Gnome desktop session from the terminal command line in Putty so I can get the VNC connection back?

Ubuntu :: Default Volume To 100% In Terminal With Gnome-volume-control-applet?

Is there a way to default volume to 100% in the terminal with gnome-volume-control-applet or any other program? I am setting up a dedicated Zsnes machine which boots into Fluxbox but the volume is muted by default. There isn't a man page for gnome-volume-control-applet.

When I log into Gnome the volume is set to 100%, but Fluxbox is always set to mute.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Usb Headset - Cannot Regulate The Volume Of The Phones (output) Anymore With Gnome-volume-control

Jun 12, 2010

since using 10.04 I have a big problem with my usb headset (freetalk everyman)

1. Problem: I cannot regulate the volume of the phones (output) anymore with gnome-volume-control. By default the volume is set to 100% which is way too loud. When I set it under 100% there is no sound at all. Values over 100% work.

2. Problem: The X server is freezing iregulary when I connect the headset and disconnect it, Magic SysRq works. I checked Xorg.0.log and found out that it recognizes the usb headset as keyboard:

Debian Multimedia :: Volume Box In Middle Of Screen After Installed KDE Desktop / Fix It?

Mar 10, 2010

I initially installed Debian with the Gnome desktop. I recently installed the KDE desktop enviro to try it out, but when I log-in to it, a big grey box with a white horizontal volume level bar in it shows up in the middle of the screen, and you can't get rid of it. It is always on top, on top of any other open app or window. Trying to quit Kmix from the panel bar doesn't help, it doesn't even get rid of Kmix, it immediately reloads and pops back up in the bottom panel bar. Also, you can't adjust the volume with the Kmix icon, when you raise the volume lever, as soon as you let go, it goes back down to 0 level. I tried searching, but couldn't find anyone else who complained of the same problem. Using pkilll to kill Kmix didn't help either, it just reloads.
