Fedora :: Add A Folder To The Overview For Quick Search?

Jun 4, 2011

Assume that I've got a folder called "Stuffs". So in fedora 15 you don't have a desktop folder, I mean you can't use it like we were used to. Even if you activate the option that allows you to use the "desktop", it is very uncomfortable because you can't minimize windows quickly. So my question is: Is there a way of put a "Link" in the overview, so I can get in to the overview and write "Stuffs" in the search bar and get my "Stuffs" folder open ?

Ubuntu :: Synaptic Quick Search Doesn't Work?

Jun 7, 2010

I just upgraded my computer to Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid. Whenever I open Synaptic Package Manager it opens normally. If I type into the "Quick search" box, when I try to type in a word as soon as I type the second letter Synaptic immediately closes. However, if I click on the full "Search" button, this function works as it should. I just can't use Quick Search. Synaptic closes every time.

I uninstalled synaptic from a terminal by typing [CODE] apt-get remove synaptic. Then I reinstalled using [CODE] apt-get install synaptic. Reinstalling did not fix the problem. Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?

Programming :: Construct A Quick Regex That Will Search For Six Lines Of Text

Apr 25, 2011

I am trying to construct a quick regex that will search for six lines of text without a clear line break between them. It only needs to search, not replace, as I will be using in gEdit (with regex plugin) anyway.

It's for editing subtitle files. The video player I will be using them on can only cope with 3-line subtitles, so I just need to edit any in the srt file that contain four or more. There won't be many so I can do it manually. For example:

00:01:47,357 --> 00:01:49,359
a motivated business
professional with
clearly defined goals.


but .* seems to mean "any character, or none", so that doesn't work. My experience of regular expressions is limited, but I do know they are very powerful when used correctly!

Fedora :: Wrap Icon Label Text In Overview?

Jul 4, 2011

how to wrap the text in the overview for the icons I tell you I love opensource. Straight from some of the guys who wrote gnome shell, and yes the reason it was left out by default is because it has some quirks. Yes it wraps text - however if you have long words - like this_file_has_no_spaces then it will overflow into the icon on either side of it. But most application names have spaces. The obvious place you will see this happening is in recent items where that displays system files etc. The other issue is that when you hover/highlight an icon it will only highlight the first line of text. That's pretty much it and with a few lines of code then you can increase the font size of applications and don't have to worry about names getting cut off

General :: Ubuntu - Quick Folder Access - Akin To Launchy

Apr 2, 2010

Launchy is a great piece of software, I use it on Windows mainly for quickly accessing folders. I love its auto-indexing in the background, and hardly ever browse through folders manually these days, solves me lots of time.

On Linux (Ubuntu 9.10), I usually "live" in the terminal, however. Therefore, Launchy on Linux (or Gnome Do, or its other replacements) are not what I need - as it opens the file manager, and I don't need the file manager.

What I do need is something that indexes my folders and lets me cd into them quickly in the terminal. For example:

Ubuntu :: Search For Folder ?

Jan 13, 2010

How do you search for folders in Ubuntu? The find function is great at locating files, but is ignoring folders that I know exist on my computer, even when I add the "Show hidden files" option to search. Same with entering find or locate in terminal.

Server :: Get Summary Overview Of All The Md-devices At Once With Mdadm

May 13, 2010

I'm performing some experiments on a box with 5x36,4G disks. Right now I have partitioned all the drives in chunks of 1G, and put them together 3 by 3 in raid5. (Yeah, there's a lot of md-devices..). 'mdadm --query' and 'mdadm --detail' give summary/detailed information about the md's, on condition that I specify the device.

My question is if there would be a way to have a summary overview of all the md-devices at once. I've gone through the manual, but haven't found anything which resembles a useful command.

Fedora Installation :: Apt-get Search Wget Saying Invalid Operation Search?

Apr 5, 2011

i guess this is an installation issue as i am newish to Linux and got a F14 laptop from a used/refurb store... Anyway it seem i have difficulty with getting GTK running or maybe it is WGET...?

i did manage to install apt-get and was able to run synaptics ... but now whenever i try to run synaptics it flashes the interface and crashes. i tried apt-get search wget and it says invalid operation search. i tried apt cache wget and get a crash box in the upper right corner... i tried apt-get gtk+extra-2.1.2-4.fc14 and it says invalid operation gtk...

All of which is frustrating my attempts to get the GTK interface to J working. Their script uses WGET which i also cannot get.

Programming :: Multi File Recursive Folder Search And Replace?

I built up a command line which I was confident would do the job, but now can't save the results.

First I tried this:

find . -name *.php | xargs grep serialize | cut -d: -f1| sort -u | xargs sed -i s/serialize/serialise/g
but that didn't work:
sed: illegal option -- i
so I thought I'd try using

Ubuntu :: Liferea - Download Podcasts - 'Unread' Search Folder To Display All Feeds From All Subscriptions?

Mar 2, 2011

I'm about to make the switch to Ubuntu but what's holding me back is Liferea. From what I've read it's by far the best RSS reader but I'm having three major problems with it...

1) I am trying to get Liferea to download podcasts that I subscribe to. I've set my download folder in preferences, and I've set the feed to automatically download enclosures in the advanced tab of the feed folder. Nothing is downloading, why?

2) I want the 'Unread' search folder to display all feeds from all subscriptions (read or unread) apart from those in the Podcast folder I've created. How do I do this?

3) I read an article in a feed and delete the article. When the feed updates, the article returns - how do I keep it deleted?

Fedora Security :: Gui Ids - Display A Quick Little Notification On The Bottom Right Hand Corner Of Screen

Apr 6, 2009

I might get harassed for making this windows/linux comparison, but i'm seriously wondering why i cant find any application that can display a quick little notification on the bottom right hand corner of my screen whenever there's some intrusion attempt.

For example, sometimes I can see that in my /etc/logs/secure (or something like that) there's someone who's trying to attempt to connect to me using random usernames/passwords from different servers. The only time I know this has happened is when i actually open the file with gedit. Is there anything like (norton for windows) that can display little notifications (with or without eye candy)??
