Fedora :: Installed 15 With The Gnome Desktop - Doesn't Put An Icon On Desktop
Jun 26, 2011
I just installed Fedora 15 with the gnome desktop which looks like the android system for mobile phones, I installed wine which put the icons on my desktop but whenever I install a windows app it doesn't put an icon on my desktop for that particular application. How would I add an icon for those window apps so I can lunch them from the desktop, I don't know if you call that the desktop or just the program luncher either way how do I put an icon there so I can run those windows apps from there?
Could you please help me to get the "Multiple Desktop Windows Icons" back on my KDE desktop panel?I accidentally disabled it by right clicking on bottom left of the panel and now i am not able to restore it back through System Setting > Multiple Desktop
I have two desktop environments installed on my Fedora pc. Here it is
Is it still possible to install other desktop environments despite already having installed KDE and GNOME? If I happen to install other desktop environments such as XFCE, LXDE, CDE, EDE, UDE, will I be able to use one particular environment by disabling the rest whenever needed
I recently installed a Suse Studio build and trying to customize it. When I login as an ordinary user, there are 2 icons on Gnome desktop (or nautilus); Home and Trash. These appear to be undeleteable and I want an undeleteable Firefox icon on my desktop as well. When I create a Firefox shortcut; it can be deleted no matter what I do; i.e. giving read-only permissions or chown to root. So, I think these desktop icons are different than ordinary app
In ubuntu 9.10, I connect the mobile device and a icon appears in desktop, but it doesn't start and doesn't connect. I went to "network connections" -> mobile broadband -> add -> select contry, bla bla bla ->insert PIN->apply
I had 11.04 installed, and I was having a weird problem when going into the Classic Gnome desktop, since I don't like the new Unity desktop. The problem I was having was that Gnome would start, but it wouldn't complete. Only one panel would come up, but not the main panel where all of the main controls are. I wasn't having any problems getting into Unity, but of course I don't like using it. So I tried a hail-mary and reinstalled to an older version of Ubuntu. I went all of the way back to 9.04, since that also includes the Grub-legacy as the default. I then upgraded through the stages from 9.04 to 9.10, and then got to 10.04. Once I got into 10.04, I had the same problem that I was having while using Gnome under 11.04, which is that the desktop didn't complete coming up. It seems to happen only in one user account (mine), but it's not happening in another user account (wife's). But I'm the sys admin, so I need to get my desktop working more than she does!
I'm wondering if after upgrading to 11.04 and Unity, it left something nasty behind in the my local configuration. I use a separate /home filesystem, so it remains intact after any system reinstall. I can't get even get the "Failsafe Gnome" option to work. The only thing that seems to work is a simple old Xterm.

I have installed Ubuntu desktop on Ubuntu Server to get Boinc manager running. Now I want to remove Ubuntu-desktop.

Tried to find it but still can't, I know it's about widgets but still don't know anything about widgets,can anybody help me to display desktop icon on F14?What is the reason Linux doesn't have it on GNOME desktop?
I installed Gnome desktop environment recently then ;I' ve lost KDE desktop effects settings. I just can see Compiz Configirator. I cant configure effects independently. There is same settings in gnome and kde. And also I cant change windows appearence.
I have my Unity desktop just how I like it, but sometimes I like to log in to the Gnome (Ubuntu Classic) desktop. However, I was playing around with CCSM while in Gnome and I've totally messed it up, I have the Gnome panels and also the Unity launcher, it's a total mess. Is there a way to reset my Gnome desktop to default without affecting my Unity desktop?
While I was trying to drag the Desktop icon to the places sidepane in nautilus file browser so that I can have it above Documents icon, I accidentally dropped it in Documents icon. I immediately deleted the "Desktop" shortcut that was created in "/home/user/Documents" but it was too late already and the damage has been done. When I try to create a new document on my desktop, it says "Error while coying to Desktop There was an error getting information about the destination. Show more details Error stating file '/home/user/Documents/' Desktop':No such file or directory" Now, I know that my desktop now is pointing me to a location in Documents folder which doesn't exist at all. I tried looking for any available settings/options in gconf-editor, but only in vain.
I have another complaint:I cannot find the Trash icon. I want to clean up my disk space. I googled how to delete files and I wasn't sure which way was best. I sometimes use the 'trash' and 'empty trash bin' except I cannot find the icon.I assume there is a command for doing that but after googling, there are only a few (OLDER) posts or articles of doing it in older versions of Fedora and they're all Gnome-based. My install is KDE.
I've been using Linux for about 15 yrs.. and this is driving me crazy.My daughter often plays on my linux box - a kinda-fresh f12 install.. running gnome.SO one day I go on my computer and my icons on my desktop are as if she changed my display to 800x600 - since the icons are so huge - but web browsing & once i open an application the sizing is fine.Wondering what she may have done to make my icons so huge.i can't seem to figure out any settings for this - she was messing with accessibility options since she had some software keyboard coming up at login too
is it would be possible create a Ubuntu dvd that contains the ubuntu server desktop and alternate install opptions, as well as all four main desktop environments (gnome, kde, xfce, lxde) and unity. since much of the data is redundant between each version cd's it would probably all fit on one disk. then all that would be needed is two disks one for 32 bit and another for 64 bit. i really think that this could work.
I have just created an 11.3 64 bit image using susestudio. All seems well but would like to customize the desktop via my script that I have added. My question is how do I remove the home directory and the trash icon from the desktop? Or better said what is the path to removing the symbolic link, I cannot find the symbolic links in the desktop directory. It is empty, I do not see any symbolic links under /home/test/Desktop?
I'm trying to add .desktop file for my application but I'm stuck with very strange problem.I created 48x48 icon for my program called etmmanager.png.I created .desktop file according to specifications:
Code: [Desktop Entry] X-SuSE-translate=true Categories=Application;Utility;X-SuSE-TimeUtility; Comment=ETM Manager for time logging Exec=etmmanager code....
My problem is that icon is not working in menu! I can find my program in Utilities->Time->ETM Manager and this is what I wanted, but there is no icon for the program.
It starts working if I specify absolute path in etmmanager.desktop file like Code: Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/etmmanager.png About my system - Opensuse 11.1 KDE 4.2
I tried xdg-desktop-icon command. It does install a shortcut. The shortcut works when double clicked. But the shortcut is shown as a standard icon, not the icon defined in the .desktop file. Do I miss something?
I use Fedora 13 x86_64. Recently i installed q4 wine and booting froze with message "registering binary handler for windows applications". Then on removing q4 wine boot froze at "unexpectedly disconnected from boot status daemon".I also removed wine, smolt.
I was playing with some gtk2 themes and , unaware of the consequences, i manually changed folder icons from folder properties for some of the folders (desktop, document, music, etc) in my home directory. The problem now is that these folder icons do not change when i change the icon theme. how can i bring it back to normal?
