Fedora :: Create A Non-terminating (by CTRL + C) Shell Script Launcher On Gnome?

Feb 12, 2010

How do I create a launcher/shortcut on Gnome desktop, which starts a Terminal window and executes a shell script?The script should execute as if I started the script manually, i.e. if I abort the script by pressing CTRL + C, the script should terminate but the terminal window should remain on screen.If I create the shell script launcher/shortcut using the �straight forward �Create Launcher� method�, the terminal window also closes when I hit CTRL + C

Ubuntu :: Create Launcher For A Shell Script?

Apr 4, 2010

I decided to try and find a home inventory application. I found one called "Attic Manager" that works in Ubuntu. [URL]

The instructions are to run it from the terminal. That's ok for once and a while, but a pain if used regularly. So I tried to set up a launcher for it. I couldn't seem to get it to work. In the command, I simply put in the path and file name, but can't seem to get it to work.

Ubuntu Installation :: Gnome Shell Replace Doesn't Work - No Application Launcher In Upper Left Hand Corner

Mar 4, 2010

So, supposedly Gnome Shell is available through synaptic. I just downloaded and installed it and then ran gnome-shell --replace. It doesn't work at all. I hit the windows key and get nothing and there is no application launcher in the upper left hand corner and Alt-f2 produces nothing at all. Alt-tab gives me the option of choosing the windows that were running when I ran gnome-shell --replace but nothing else works at all. Just a vast expanse of digital nothingness. Does anyone know why this might be? I have an nvidia video card (see sig below) and two monitors running from "twin view".

General :: Gnome Panel "Create Launcher" Question - Bug Or Just Poor Design?

May 18, 2010

Gnome 2.30.0 (Ubuntu 10.04) I wish to create a launcher to a particular subdirectory.- right click on Panel and select Add to Panel- choose Custom Application Launcher- Set Type to Location- input desired NameNext to the Location text box is a Browse... button. I would expect to be able to browse to the subdirectory which I wish to access with my launcher. However, the Browse... button brings up a window which is titled "Choose a file..." and which will only "Open" a file, not a subdirectory.Is this a bug I should report or just an example of poor user interface design? If the latter, is the issue with the Create Launcher program (for bringing up a file locater) or with the File Locater program (which should have the option of selecting a location as well as a file?

Fedora Installation :: How To Create A Desktop Launcher

Mar 26, 2010

I am having trouble creating a desktop launcher icon for an application that needs to run in terminal mode and is run with "mono". After creating the launcher on the desktop it launches the terminal window and then gives the error "There was an error creating the child process for this terminal", and the terminal window is blank. Here are the steps I use to launch the application in a many step process. click on applications/system tools/terminal then in the terminal window I type, cd /var/opensim/Test/bin mono OpenSim.32BitLaunch.exe The above steps work just fine and the instance of the application runs just fine, but it is rather tedious to enter in all that everytime I want to run the application.

1 - place a desktop icon on my desktop to launch the application,

2 - Launch this application when I reboot Fedora so it starts automatically whenever I boot.

The way I created the desktop launcher was to right click on the desktop and select create launcher. I selected "application in terminal" and when I entered in the command line, I added "mono" to the command after navigating to the place the application was with the correct path. Here is the actual command line that is in the launcher that throws the error message.

/var/opensim/Test/bin/mono OpenSim.32BitLaunch.exe

Fedora :: How To Create Launcher For Application Using DosBox

Jun 13, 2011

how do I create a launcher for an application using DosBox? I tried in Alacarte, but it does not show up. I did this both as root and as user.Disregard. It did create the launchers. It just put them in "Other" even though I told it to create them in "Internet" so they are there, but just not where I want them. That is okay since now I can add them to my favorites and put them in the order I want.

I guess I will like Gnome 3 better as I find tweaks to make it work like I want it to work. Still though, it is not nearly as user friendly as my heavily tweaked Gnome 2 with Compiz.Another question though: How do I get it to select and use a photo I want for the background instead of the stock images? It is annoying as all get-out to have the screen turn to grey rather than stay the way I want it. :

Fedora :: How To Run Scripts From Gnome Launcher Not In The Terminal

Feb 17, 2011

I want to use the Gnome Launcher to launch a script I made but it will only work if I select "Application in Terminal." It will not launch if I use "Application". I've also noticed that my script will only run in the terminal regardless of how I launch it. Fedora will not let me just double click the file and "Run" the script. I don't want to open a terminal every time I run the script.

Software :: Create Launcher In Fedora 13 Which Will Run Simple Script Named Proj4a?

May 8, 2011

I am trying to create a launcher in Fedora 13 which will run a simple script named proj4a. I run this script from the command line as follows:

$ $HOME/proj4a >$HOME/proj4a_out

where proj4a is an executable file in my home directory and the output goes into a file, proj4a_out, in my home directory. Everything works fine. I created a launcher called Proj4a and in the command field I entered the following:

' $HOME/proj4a >$HOME/proj4a_out'

When I click on the launcher it comes back with the following: There was an error launching the application.

Fedora :: Entering Unicode Characters In Gnome Via Ctrl+Shift+u / No Longer Works

Dec 8, 2009

For some unknown (to me) reason, "Ctrl+Shift+u, <unicode number>" doesn't work in F12. I had gotten quite used to this method in order to input several symbols and if you know what you want, it is a lot faster compared to using the character map. This was working in all recent Fedora versions.Does anyone know how to enable this functionality?

Fedora Networking :: Network Manager - Terminating Current Connection

Sep 19, 2009

I have installed recently the Fedora 8 in a computer and during installation it was set a static IP with the netmask and gateway. At first it worked well, but after some boots the connection begins to fail. It seems that the network-manager withdraws the static IP and tries
to get connection via DHCP. Below is the /var/log/messages file during the failed connection:

Code:

Ubuntu :: Map Ctrl+W In Hebrew Layout(which Is Actually A Ctrl+') To Be A Ctrl+w?

Jan 5, 2010

I have 3 layouts: USA, Russian and Hebrew. In Hebrew the W key is mapped to apostrophe, so Ctrl+W in Hebrew layout doesn't close tabs in Firefox. There is no workaround for it as I see by now, so I am trying to get it work this way:I want to map Ctrl+W in Hebrew layout(which is actually a Ctrl+') to be a Ctrl+w. Here is what I got from xmodmap:Code:$ xmodmap -pke | grep 25keycode 25 = w W Cyrillic_tse Cyrillic_TSE apostrophe WAs you can see, there are pairs for each layout, each pair tells what happens without and with the Shift key pressed.

Fedora :: Gnome Shell - Change Defaults?

Jun 3, 2010

I feel like this is a RTFM question, so if anyone wants to just direct me to the right manual, that's fine.

I just installed gnome-shell and i cant seem to find anyway to customize anything, esp. the task bar, the clock, et cetera

is there a preferences gui or something that I cant find? I feel like i'm trying to use a mac....

It seems pretty sweet, but, i dont know how to get used to not having a window list... i dont wanna pull up the "activities window" or alt tab every time i want switch windows (esp when my hand is used to just moving to the top of the screen and clicking on the right window...

There's this autohide taskbar at the bottom of the screen, but i cant for the life of me figure out what it's for, or how to put things on it....
