I'm able to set it up but everytime I reboot or logout it goes to the default Fedora12 picture. My pictures is in the list so have to select it everytime in system/preference/look & feel/apparence/background. I didn't find any file to edit in my home folder to fix this.
btw I'm unable to edit the menu when I right click on mainmenu icon
I have the latest version of ubuntu, my problem is my desktop background is black, when I shut the PC down the desktop background (the picture set as my background) flashes up, (the picture will change when I change the background). Looks like the black desktop background is hiding it. Also when opening emails with attachments the attachment opens then gets covered with the black background.
I use linux mint 8, and I want to change the background for the login screen. For easier and smoother login. Ive googled for days,cand nothing works. I tried GDM2 and I press select new image, but it doesnt work. Do I need the image in a certain folder?
I did remake my minimal installation. My window manager produces no background picture else I did add someone. So i will do it using xorg-xli. I did find the (in other cases usual) xinitrc as /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc but in only refers to an other script
and the other script (/etc/X11/Xsession) does not include some usuable steps to include easily supplementary starting commands.
I just installed 9.10, and the "File Manager" seems to not be working. I cant get ubuntu to display a background picture on the desktop, and anything I put on the desktop is not selectable. If I try to access anything under the "Places" tab, it tries to open a window, which read "opening whatever" but nothing happens. I can access files via terminal just fine.
I am looking for a free application for webcam that have a very good ,easy and flexible command line options. because I want to shutting down my X in a machine and use my web cam as a motion detector to detect a motion or some thing else and take picture and save them in an appropriate place or any other action that possible but in command line configuration or file configuration and does not need any graphical user interface.
I have an old Brooktrout ISDN fax card on BRI used mostly for receiving faxes. It works with windows fax server software which sends faxes to different e-mail boxes according to telephone number on which fax was send.
Since card is getting rather old and I don particulary like server software I wonder has anyone got any practice with linux fax servers. What I need is ISDN fax card and software which is able to save fax as a picture to file and somehow retain telephone number (filename or directory name). Sending picture by email is than trivial task.
i had just edited a picture in digikam that was going to be my new desktop wallpaper.when i went into system/preferences/appearance to make the new change it would not show the new picture that i had just edited as a choice to change my new wallpaper to. then i tried closing the appearance box and it would not close.then i shut down and restarted and when i bring up the appearance box it does not let me click on anything within.also can't close it.seems like other applications are working normally.
Where is the loginscreen picture in F13? I want to change it, but can't find the directory where the picture is.I mean that picture that comes up after boot and loginscreen, blue with 3 white stripes.Is there any other way to change that loginpicture or is that loginpicture permanent to the F13 system ?
Problem: In Fedora 7 picture offset about 5 mm to righ on screen. I solved this with xvidtune and insert modeline in xorg.conf. In section Monitor..... I'm not sure. Why I can't use this trick in Fedora 12?
i try to install mac4lin, then i found it not nice, then i decided to uninstall it. everything is back to original fedora 12 theme, except this volume controller image. is there any way to change it back to original fedora 12 volume controller image?
I'm all new to linux. I've got Fedora core 12 - I'm ex windows user. I have these 3 websites to maintain: These are in finnish language. So called pikalaina sites: pikalainat pikavipit vipit
And I have to add pictures to these pages. I don't know how to do even that I don't know web programming or HTML. But my images are about 1 mb in file size - I use to have windows and photoshop and there is this save for web feature where file size is reduced.I have this GIMP -program now - it's terrible compared to photoshop, but it's free. In GIMP there is no feature how to reduce file size for ex. 1mb to 20 Kb. How do I do this? Do you know any good program to do it?
I have a MS Lifecam Vxx3000. I have managed to get the video to work in SKYPE, but I have to use an external mic. I have checked a lot of places, but could not find anything that works. PulseAudio Volume Control recognizes it, but I cannot get any sound out. I was using Audacity to test this. I can get my external mic to work in Audacity. When I change the options in Audacity and pick the webcam mic as input, I get no sound input.
After taking a first look onto internet under Fedora linux (using Firefox web browser) I've saw that every single image is displayer much much worse than in same Firefox under Windows. Especially when scaling, it became pixelized, but even without scaling it is smoothen very much. I've checked Konqueror but quality is bad too and the same as in Firefox. What could be the reason and how could I fix it?
BTW, everything in linux GUI looks a little worse, including font, etc, looks smooth. Images under IrfanView too, but not as bad as in browsers. Proprietary Nvidia driver from RPMfusion is installed and 3D works. But running Fedora under VirtualBox in Windows produce same bad quality as in native Fedora.
I've recently bought a Toshiba Satellite U500-10V and I've managed to get F12 work on it pretty well. However, I still have some minor issues. One of them is related to PDF document rendering.Basically, every picture in a PDF document is distorted or grainy(I don't know if this is correct English ^^"). Things get a little better when I use Acrobat Reader insted of Evince... but the difference is slight. Take a look at the attached scr
I have two kinda weird problems that have been preventing me from wasting my time!
1. I can go to a flickr page and see the first picture fine. When I use the browse buttons and/or try and change to another picture, firefox crashes.
2. When viewing pictures in facebook (the only reason I use it is to share pictures with my far-off family who doesn't get to see my kids often) the pictures are very badly pixelated.
I'm using an Acer Aspire laptop (Intel 915 graphics, celeron processor, 1.5GB ram) with a completely up to date Fedora 12 installation. The weird part is, my wife's netbook, (1GB ram, Intel 945 graphics) with Fedora 12, displays everything fine. I'm cometely stumped how one machine is having such issues while another isn't. This problem existed in F10 when I used up until the F12 release so I'm presuming it is a graphics card problem (???) since the software and OS has changed.Does anyone know what might be going on or how I can check?
I have Ubuntu 9.10 dual booting with Windows7.My ext3 /home is mounted as F: in windows.I share a firefox profile between them so that when i am in Windows my firefox uses the same profile as it does when in Ubuntu.It all worked great until recently. I am unable to save files by right clicking and save as. In the config i am unable to set a directory to save to. It neer asks me where to save to. Just nothing happens. some off my book marks are all messed up as well, my rss feeds have the same post on some random website every time i log on and i have to manually refresh to get the correct feeds back. I am unable to delete the random bookmark.
my mediacenter is attached to an beamer with the optimal resolution of 1280*720 ubuntu 10.04 doesnt offer me this revolution (on my intel 915 graphis controller). this means i have to add this resolution to the possible resolutions. first i used cvt
Config a CentOS iptables.I issued some iptables rules.the rules were effective at once.Then, I came with a "iptables-save", but the "/etc/sysconfig/iptables" file hasn't been updated, it still loads the defaults rules with CentOS after reboot.
I recently upgraded to fedora 12. Before the upgrade I had a desktop background which filled the entire 2 screens. After the upgrade i noticed that the background is displayed on each monitor twice so when displaying the desktop I see the background twice.I tried to change the settings for it like 'center' and 'fill screen' but to no avail. The rest of the dual monitor setup works fine.
