General :: Can't Resize Konsole Windows Size In Fedora / Make It Possible?

Aug 1, 2011

This may seem to be a silly question, but I googled along
and found that most of relevant complaints was about
a bug in video card driver.

My problem is -
For some unknown reason, I can't resize the Konsole window horizontally while I can still resize vertically. This is bad as the corrent width of Konsole window fills the entire screen!

General :: Configure Kde 4 To Resize Windows To Half Desktop Size When Moved To Side Of Screen?

Feb 7, 2010

I have just noticed a nice feature in Windows 7 - when you drag a window to the edge of the screen (the mouse pointer must touch the edge), windows offers you to resize the window to exactly half of the screen size. This is actually very handy on the wide screen monitors.

Is it possible (and how) to configure Kde 4 to do the same thing?

Fedora Installation :: Partition Size After F14 Install With Resize Option

Apr 11, 2011

I've just installed Fedora 14 over an old Ubuntu (heron, I think). The old install used a single partition for both / and /home; and I wanted to try to avoid reinstalling /home if possible (but yes, I did back it up). I chose the anaconda option to shrink the old Ubuntu /, and created a new LVM for the Fedora /. This seemed to work perfectly. I mounted the old / on '/host' (an old naming habit), and then mounted individual home dirs into /home using autofs. All seemed fine. However, on my first reboot after the autofs mounts fsck failed. The current situation is as follows:

# fsck /dev/sda6
fsck from util-linux-ng 2.18
e2fsck 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)
The filesystem size (according to the superblock) is 15360000 blocks
The physical size of the device is 15359895 blocks
Either the superblock or the partition table is likely to be corrupt!
Abort<y>? yes

# dumpe2fs /dev/sda6 | grep 'Block count'
dumpe2fs 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)
Block count: 15360000
# dumpe2fs -o superblock=32768 /dev/sda6 | grep 'Block count'
dumpe2fs 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)
Block count: 15360000
Same thing for all the other backup superblocks I've tried.
# echo '15360000 4 * p' | dc
# fdisk -s /dev/sda6

Resize2fs tells me to run fsck, and complains of a short read if I try to force. Fsck seems to run fine if I say 'no' to the abort prompt, but doesn't change the problem. Filesystem is ext3. Started with debugfs. First used icheck and ncheck to work out which file(s) had been written to the non-existent blocks past the partition size. Fortunately, there was only one. Deleted that file (can restore it from backup later). Quit debugfs. Now resize2fs -p -f worked perfectly. fsck after resizing was clean. Reboot seems happy. As for the origin of the problem, I would guess there's a rounding bug in the code anaconda uses to shrink partitions.

Debian Multimedia :: How To Make Certain Windows Open Same Size Every Time

Jan 13, 2016

I have been using windowmaker for some time now. I really love this wm, but I've one major problem; how do I make certain windows open the same size each time I open that program? For instance, I have a certain size I prefer for Pcmanfm, Vlc, deadbeef, and geequie, but every time I run them, they open anywhere on the desktop at all sorts of sizes. I especially hate resizing a video window when the video is playing.

I can do this in fluxbox, but I have a different set of problems with that window manager, namely, I can't organize my dockapps the way I want, despite editing the slitlist and some won't work at all. While I love Openbox, I can't get the windows sized right each time, either.

Fedora :: Resize Windows Too Big For Screen?

Sep 22, 2009

I am using an Asus 1000HE with a 10 inch screen.

I just installed Fedora 11 with Gnome.

Windows often go beyond the edge of the screen so I cannot see everything that is in the window or press buttons when I need to.

I know I can drag the windows around with [Alt] but that is not a longterm solution.

So how do I resize windows to fit the screen ?

Fedora :: Unable Resize All Windows On F15 And Gnome?

Sep 4, 2011

I just installed Fedora 15 on a new laptop and I am using the Genome desktop. There are some applications that will not the allow you to resize the window. Some examples of this are Libre Calc, gnome-tweak-tool and a window in the package installer. In all these cases when you right mouse click on the top of the active window the "Resize ALT-F8" is grayed out and is not selectable.This is real problem when I'm trying to install the Perl-IDE-for-vim package because the list of dependencies is so long the confirm button is off the bottom of the screen and I cannot resize the window to get to it. There is also a similar issue with the tweak tool where some of the field are chopped off because the window is too small. As for Libre Calc I just don't like a window taking up the whole desktop.

Fedora Installation :: No Minimize Or Resize Buttons For All Windows

Jun 7, 2011

I did an upgrade to F15 from F13. I was a little skeptical about the upgrade (I had always reinstalled in the past), but so far it seems to have worked great. What were people thinking when they released Gnome? No minimize of resize buttons for all windows (I downloaded the F15 updates today, and there doesn't seem to be any updates to fix the situation). Ridiculous. Who did any testing on this? Once a fix was found for that, I find Gnome to be non intuitive and inefficient regarding response time and user key strokes required.

Software :: Resize Images To Specific Size Correctly

Feb 4, 2010

I need to find a program that will allow me to take images 600 x 600 and resize down to fit a specific size like 95 x 139. I need the images to not distort. There is white space around the objects in the images. I also need to be able to crop on a pixel scale to know that I am resizing it correctly.

Programming :: OpenGL And GLUT In Fedora 12: Windows Too Small And Don't Resize

Mar 15, 2010

I have verified using yum that I have the most uptodate glut, freeglut, freeglut-devel etc., yet when I compile Example 2-6 from the Red Book at, I get a window that is too small for the program output, includes display from other windows, and will not redraw after being resized.

I get slightly better behavior with the SGI sample program mentioned in the same book, 'checkers.c'. Again, the initial size is too small, but at least it will resize and redraw the checkerboards entirely inside the resized window. What is going on here? Is this some bug in glut? I can't see anything obviously wrong in their glut initialization, which looks like:

int main(int argc, char** argv)
glutInit(&argc, argv);
glutInitDisplayMode (GLUT_SINGLE | GLUT_RGB);
glutInitWindowSize (350, 150);


Then again, since I am such a newbie to glut, I am not sure I would recognize what, if anything, they did wrong. what ARE the valid and useful command line parameters I could have passed to the main() above?

General :: Windows - Resize An Image To Multiple Resolutions Simultaneously?

Aug 22, 2011

I am looking for software (Windows or Linux) that can do the following: Resize one image to several provided sizes. Detects the type of the pic­ture (wide, nor­mal) and does the resize based on that. What I mean by that is that it should not break the image by shrinking it more in one direction then in the other so it looks weird. The purpose of this is my Blog. If I want to give my readers a wallpaper, I want to give them several options for the sizes so they can have it in their own preferred screen resolution. The image must however keep its original aspect ratio.

Fedora :: Incomplete XFCE Install - Windows Don't Have Minimize - Resize And Close Icons On Top Bar

Jul 8, 2011

I installed XFCE on a machine built with the FC 15 LXDE based live CD using yum groupinstall XFCE. I got a usable XFCE session, but after a period of use, some things have gone missing. The windows don't have minimize,resize and close icons on the top bar. The settings selection for "Window Manager Tweaks" doesn't start any program. The programs that are open in the users session are not saved, even though that option is checked. Can this be explained by corruption of a single file somewhere? Or should I re-install XFCE again.

General :: Make ZIP Or RAR Package Of Directory With Increased Size?

I have this directory with multiple images 'pics' and the size is 20mb and I want to make a .zip or .rar package of this directory but with an increased size so the .zip/.rar file will be 100mb, and then when you extract it the file size is the original 20mb. I want to make the result file bigger, no compress it. I need to put all the directory in one single file .zip or .rar but it has to weight more (100mb), maybe it can be done with another application. By the way, I have a centos 5 from command line.

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Maximize Firefox / Thunderbird And Konsole Windows

Jul 25, 2011

I just switched to OpenSUSE/KDE4 from Ubuntu/Gnome2. Overall, I am very pleased. However, I have an issue that I have been unable to resolve. That is, Firefox, Thunderbird and Konsole Terminal do not have maximize buttons in their titlebars and there is not any other way to maximize these windows. Also, if I right click on the task manager tab for those applications then the "Maximize" menu item in the context menu is grayed out so it is inaccessible too. The bottom line is that there is no way to maximize these windows. All other applications, such as Dolphin, Chromium, Konqurer, LibreOffice, etc. have maximize buttons and a "maximize" menu item in their task manager context menus. Then, why don't Firefox, Thunderbird and Konsole also have maximize buttons? I am using the Oxygen theme and have configured the buttons on the Oxygen theme to include the Maximize button.

Software :: Terminal And Konsole Windows Show Strange Characters

Oct 1, 2009

When I open a terminal or konsole window, output (either STDOUT or STDERR) sometimes contains funny characters instead of something meaningful. Can someone explain how I might correct this situation?

One very repeatable example involves using the manual page command

man set... man page output ...upstart - event-based init daemon

In my copy of the output, there are several problems in the very first screen. In the synopsis section, there is "{ value | ?value? ..." Replace the '?' with a lower-case-a-under-a-carat character (a-hat).
I suspect the garble character might be apostrophe in real life.

In other places, I see var?/able or how?/ever or trans?/action where the '?' is again a-hat and the '/' represents end of line or newline. I suspect the garble character might be a hyphen in real life.

All of this suggests that there is a conflict between the character stream written to STDOUT by the man command and the character-display settings (is that "code page" or similar?) of the specific terminal or konsole in use.

In specific, I use konsole v1.6.6 from KDE v3.5.10. In general, I'm running Ubuntu Hardy (v8.04.3 LTS).

Software :: KDE Crashes When Windows Too Small (quick Tile, Firefox, Konsole)?

Apr 18, 2011

I'm running KDE 4.6.00 on openSuSE 11.4. The system is nearly perfect in my mind, minus some weird KDE crashes. I've set the meta+left/right keys to perform the "quick tile" operation. When I have a firefox (or konsole) window tiled on the left or right half of my screen, un-tiling it (for example, pressing meta+left when it is tiled to the right) will sometimes cause the window to become too small to see. In about 90% of the times that this happens, the program crashes. In case this is not clear, I'm starting with a window which is tiled on half of my screen, and I want to either move it to the other half, or just get it to the not-tiled state in the middle of my screen, then it shrinks, and usually crashes.

I tried setting the startup geometry for both konsole and firefox. Otherwise, I'm at a loss. I can avoid the problem by manually resizing a quick-tiled window from half-screen size to something smaller, in lieu of using the meta+right/left keys to undo the quick-tile and put it in the center of the screen

General :: Windows - Why Do Operating Systems Have File Size Limits

Aug 13, 2010

What limits a file to have some maximum size depending on the Operating System? I do not exactly understand this. If you have the storage space, what else can be the limitation? You should be able to store as much data as you want the way you want (even in a single file) unless you run out of storage space.
