I am running Ubuntu 10.04 with dual monitors with a nvidia GeForce 8400GS. I can't figure out how to fix. On the primary screen on the Gnome Panel it shows all my open applications. I currently have VirtualBox, Firefox, and 3 Terminal windows open and they show up on the panel. I can minimize and maximize,etc from the panel bar. This is my issue. If I move say one of the Terminal sessions to the second monitor it disappears from the primary monitor's panel bar.
If I click the hide all applications and show desktop icon there is no way for me to reopen just that terminal window that was on my second screen. I noticed this when I moved my Firefox window to the second screen and minimized everything with the show desktop icon. I could not maximize Firefox cause the application was not listed on the panel. I had to kill Firefox and relaunch.
Is there a way using dpkg or apt-get to segregate user application packages from system packages? What I envision is an /apps directory structure that can be the install target for selected packages so not to "clutter" the storage areas for the system administration files/packages - maybe even with permissions set so that (a GROUP of) users could install packages on an Ubuntu server w/o SysAdmin guidance. This could also allow 1)system upgrades with or w/o including these packages, and 2)the sharing of /apps (via NFS) among common Ubuntu systems. Is this doable using the dpkg or apt maintenance tools?

I've just added an application to load on startup in gnome.At first gnome loads properly,but after few seconds that application starts automatically and I can see its icon on taskbar , then gnome freezes and I can't do anything in gui.
How I can remove that application from starup of gnome using command line?
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.
I have an x application I am trying to run under gnome. It assumes a fixed ip address and exclusive use of the eth0. I have run it under gnome on RHEL 5.3. I set the ip address and ifconfig confirms the correct address. When I run it I get "SocketConnect() error:
Resource temporarily unavailabele, port 8005. (on the terminal that I started it)
This is indicative that it has failed to make a connection to the outside world. One difference I notice between the non-working and the working is that, the error message seems to stop coming out on the fedora gnome, almost immediately, whereas on the other installations it will come out indefinitely until it connects. is virb0 interferring. What is different in the networking on fedora 11 then RHEL?
I've downloaded VideoLan (VLC) via Yast but the icon was placed in the audio folder. How do I move it to the video player folder? Also, where are additional icons stored? I run SuSE 11.2 (boxed version) with KDE.
So, I have this application called Impact, it is an explicit time integration Finite Elements code written in Java...
I untar the pack, and launch the application calling a script, from within the untarred folder,
This launches a gui which allows me to setup a case, which needs some setup file, tipically some *.in and a mesh file, tipically some *.msh.
Other mode of executuion consists of calling the setup file as argument to Impact.sh script ( CLI execution mode, for g33k5 )
My problem is : I have packed the whole stuff into a Slackware .tgz, that places it in /usr/local/Impact, and placed a calling script in /usr/local/bin,
I decided to hack the ImpactGUI_OGL_linux_amd64.sh script from
even after adding /usr/local/Impact/bin to PATH... won't go...
I can run this thing from within its directory... but I do not like messing within the directories of my applications, this is why I sent this to /usr/local, and placed a calling script in /usr/local/bin...
I am trying to troubleshoot an application that is generating several segfaults with an error 14, but the application is not crashing.The program continues to run. I would assume I can connect to a running process to debug it, but I'm not sure what to gather. The program has several background processes associated with it so I'm sure I'll need to attach to the actual internal process. Does anyone have any experience in this to offer some insight?
I want to display cpu temperature and fan speed, network activities, load, etc on a simple window mangement, such as fvwm, wm, or blackbox. Is there a software in slackware packages to show these sensors reading in X windows similar to wmsupermon? I don't want to compile it, if slackware has something same that i can just use.
Using Jaunty and trying to install a 56k modem driver with gdebi but when I go to install it tells me I have to close all other application managers. I cannot find any other application managers running in system monitor. Synaptic and update manager are both off at this point.
I'm in a dual boot with xp. Something tells me I should have bought that USR modem with the native Linux driver rather than the cheaper Aopen unit
I will be upgrading to Lucid in the coming weeks but would like to resolve this beforehand if possible.
I try to understand the way the network-admin tool retrieve and set information about the network connections, and after reviewing thee code, I still dont undertsnad how it does it. I thought that it should use maybe linux commands such as iwconfig or ifconfig or by using ioctl for get/set the parameters of the wireless, but I did not find such things in the code. It also does not use AT commands for modem devices parameters.
I see that it uses liboobs files, but after veiwing the code, I still don't understand how it works.
These question comes since I work on application which connects to wireless devices (possibly several wifi and modems devices can be connected ), and I try to think how to set/get the network parameters, I thought that a good start will be to look at how network-admin works.
I opend terminal and typed the command.. sudo apt-get install torcs While downloading was in process I accidentally closed the terminal clicking X on the windows. I cant open synaptic Package manger when I try to open it says: "This usually means that another package management application (like apt-get or aptitude) is already running. Please close that application first". How can I close that apt-get application?
