Ubuntu :: Launch A Program Onto Another X Screen?

May 11, 2011

This is for a live performance type of setup. I have 2 graphics cards. One is attached to 2 projectors, which are what the audience sees. The other has a single monitor, which is backstage. The 'front' graphics card is configured in Twinview, and the 'backstage' one is configured as a second X screen by the nvidia settings control panel.

What I'd like to do is launch my show program from a terminal on my backstage screen, but have it show up on the other X screen, the 'front' one. X is amazing so I'm sure it can be done, but I'm having a hard time figuring out exactly how.

Personal Best for self-solving my own thread question:

DISPLAY=:0.0; xclock
launches on display 0
DISPLAY=:0.1; xclock
launches on display 1

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Access The .exe's What Files Launch A Program?

Feb 27, 2010

I'm completely new to the Linux OS. It is very foreign to me, i'm very used to the way windows does everything, including how windows does installation. I know that Linux doesn't understand .exe files like windows does... which is part of the problem. I have a linux zip file of a program (Jgrasp) that I want to install. I unzipped it into my home file and then wanted to run the program, but I have no idea what to do next. How the heck do I run the program if i can't access the .exe's what files launch a program in linux?Also how do i get it to recognize the JDK files?

Ubuntu :: Allow To Single Click To Open A Folder/launch A Program?

Mar 5, 2011

I've looked, but no luck. Coming from Debian, 5.02, is there a setting in Ubuntu 10.10 that will allow me to single click to open a folder/launch a program. I don't mean the one i am using now that is set up with the mouse setting where it seems to be an assistive technologies application where there is a slider to set the dwell time (when i use this one, i get a menu opening at the same time as the application launch), but the one where the pointer turns to a little hand when it moves over the icon, and opens/launches the program when the button is released.

Fedora :: KDE Will Not Launch?

Aug 8, 2010

My first distro was kubuntu, and am now trying Fedora with KDE. I was annoyed that the open windows were not shown on the task bar. I tried adjusting all sorts of things, and finally figured out that all I had to do was add a certain widget. I had no idea that this is what I was looking for, since kubuntu already does that by default. But in the process of figuring this out, I caused KDE to crash. The next time booted with Fedora, KDE would not launch. So I logged into a virtual terminal and ran startx. I got the following errors:

error while loading shared libraries: libQtGui.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
startkde: could not start kdeinit4. Check your installation.

Fedora :: KDEInit Could Not Launch Usr/bin/skype

Aug 29, 2011

I've just made the leap from Windows to Linux after years of flirting with the idea. I downloaded and installed Fedora 15 KDE 64 bit (I have tried it before and remember KDE was the windows manager I used previously, so chose that).

However, when trying to get Skype to launch, I receive the error message: KDEInit could not launch usr/bin/skype

Before settling on Fedora, I also tried Linux Mint, using GNOME. Since the error message seems to suggest KDE is the problem, would it be possible to switch to GNOME, without having to redownload and do a clean install? Or would this be the equivalent of using a sledge hammer to crack a nut?

Fedora Security :: Some Applications Won't Launch After Update (10)?

Mar 25, 2009

Today (25 of March) Fedora 10 asked to install latest security updates. I allowed it to install them and everything seemed ok. But after the next boot I understood that some applications won't launch. Skype, last.fm player, VirtualBox - all the qt ones. I've reinstalled those apps, and reinstalled qt. They still don't launch.When I execute one of them from terminal - it just waits and nothing happens.The process really starts, I can see it from ps -A and gnome's System Monitor.Here's the /var/log/yum.log for March 25th:

Fedora :: F12 Two Versions On Boot - Cannot Launch Firefox

Dec 21, 2009

I installed f12 few days back. A pop up came which mentioned '336 new updates available' and I opted 'install only security updates'.

Now in the boot screen 3 options come instead of 2:
1. Fedora
2. Fedora
3. Windows

I am able to boot into both versions of fedora, but I cannot launch firefox it says-'your version of SQlite is too old and the application cannot run'. How do I correct the screw up. Should I re-install the whole thing....? why is it showing as 2 versions....? I installed yumex recently, is it the reason.....?

Fedora :: Launch X Apps On A Remote Ssh Session?

Mar 5, 2010

Desktop computer (AMD64) running F12. Nothing unusual about it, stock install. Thinkpad laptop running Windows XP. Putty is installed, I can SSH to Fedora.

If I'm at the laptop, in a Putty session, how can I (for example) type "firefox" and have the resultant Firefox window appear on-the-laptop?

I generally have X running all the time on the desktop because I can't get the wireless network connection to function without NetworkManger (not that I really care because I'm rarely at a console screen and need net access).

Fedora :: F14: GNOME Won't Launch Firefox / Thunderbird

Jun 8, 2011

Noticed this last night, when I try and launch either Firefox or Thunderbird using the GNOME menu or the quick launch icons, it fails. I am able to launch them both from the command line in a terminal. Other applications seem to launch fine, so I'm at a bit of a loss where to begin taking this apart... I do get a task in the task bar that says "Launching Firefox", but then nothing comes up. The same thing happens with Thunderbird. That task just goes away. Another odd thing - following a reboot the launch buttons work once. If I close them, they won't launch again unless I run them from a terminal window.

Fedora :: Launch A Bash Script (game) With A Shorcut?

Jun 11, 2010

I just downloaded a game Cube 2: Sauerbraten and I am trying to make a shortcut in Application->Games.

Basically to launch a game I have to double-click on a file, which is a script that invokes the rest of the game. After double clicking a dialog shows up that asks me whether I want to edit the file, run in terminal, or just run. I have no problem running it this way, but my shortcut in Applications->Games does not work. I have tried setting shortcut option to "Application" and "Application in Terminal" and nothing happens.

As of now the shortcut command points directly to that start script. I have also tried to do "sh /path/to/game" and still no success. How do I make that shortcut work?
