Ubuntu :: Link To Application Cannot Find Applications In Home Folder

Jan 27, 2010

I seem to be seeing some weird behavior in kubuntu with KDE 4.3.2 and KDE 4.3.5 for Kubuntu 9.10 32-bit.I have a few programs in my home folder. For instance Eclipse and Mendeley. it seems that when i create a Link to Application does not launch them. Here is how I create the links.

-> I right click and create a new "Link to Application"
-> I click on the Application tab and browse to where the shell script, or executable is.

and when I try to launch them it does not work. The link is using the absolute path. I tried setting the working directory and using a relative path but nothing. If I run the link in a terminal it says "Warning: Could not find" and the application I set. Now this seems to not be a problem for system applications like Kate. If i change the link to launch Kate it works perfectly.

General :: Find Contents From Recycle Bin That Were Put Into One Folder - Name Unknown?

Oct 13, 2010

Recently I did a System Mechanics clean-up of invalid and other misc files. The files were moved to the recycle bin, but I couldn't open a file individually while it was in the recyle bin in order to double check whether or not I wanted to perminently delete it. I then selected all items and moved them to a single folder hoping to open it later to review the individual files.I don't know the folder name or what part of the computer this folder was moved to. Is there a way I can find this new folder, name unknown, that was created on 10-12-10? I'm sure it's taking up valuable space in my computer and I want to permently delete the unwanted items individually and not as a whole batch.

Ubuntu :: Can't Find Application In Unity

May 10, 2011

I just updated to 11.04 today after deciding I couldn't just read about Unity anymore and wanted to experience it for myself. I'll save my thoughts for the Experiences forum; suffice to say that so far I think that it's organized and, for the most part, intuitive.

That said, I am having a problem finding an application that I know is installed. I use Crossover Games to run Steam, and though Steam is running just fine (just played a quick game of TF2 to make sure) I cannot for the life of me find Crossover. In 10.10, it was under Applications > Games. In Unity, it will not show up no matter how I search for it (Steam, however, does with no issues). I have searched for Crossover, codeweaver, cross, code, games, etc, to no avail.

Any tips or comments on how I may find this application? It shows up in my Installed Software in Software Center even!

General :: Application Called Impact - Paths In Java Application ?

Apr 14, 2010

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 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 script from



no avail,


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...

Ubuntu :: Can't Find Application Manager To Stop ?

Jun 27, 2010

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.

Is there any way to find out the space consumed by a particular application??
AFAIK,applications installation are distributed across various directories in Linux(man pages,executable files,etc..)and the very close i can get is to run 'whereis' command which gives me all the paths where the application's files are stored.
Do i have to manually go to each and every such paths and check their sizes??
