General :: Make Openbox Automatically Start To Use A Specific Gtk Profile?

Jul 7, 2010

I have switched to openbox from Gnome and would now like to stop using Metacity altogether. When I was using metacity I had both a control theme (e.g. gtk theme) and fonts set up how I liked them in gnome-appearance-proporties. When Openbox starts, it gets my window borders up properly (ofc.) but fails to render my fonts properly and uses the wrong gtk theme. I can't find anywhere to specify which gtk theme to use or what method to render my text with. After Openbox is finished doing it's thing, and I run gnome-apperance-properties manually, it will automatically set everything to it's proper value, but I don't want to have to do this as it takes several seconds to preform and I'd rather not have it jury rigged like this.

General :: Make Windows 7 Start Automatically With Dual Boot Fedora 14?

May 25, 2011

I have Windows 7 and Fedora 14 both on my laptop in dual boot configuration. When my computer starts up it shows a screen that says press any button to select another operating system to start, then I can make Windows 7 start. But after 2 seconds, if I DON'T press any button then Fedora starts automatically. How can I change this so Windows starts automatically when I don't press any button?

General :: Make A DRBD Node Start Itself As A Primary Node Automatically?

Jan 28, 2010

I've set up DRBD on 2 machines, 1 of them is the master, another is the slave.

After each bootup, I need to run the following on the master machine:

drbdadm -- --overwrite-data-of-peer primary all

Do we need to specify which machine should be the primary node every time? Is there any method to make the machine "know" it's itself the primary node?

Ubuntu :: Make A Command Run Automatically On Start-up?

May 27, 2011

I have a lenovo thinkpad laptop, and it has both touch-pad (standard build in laptop mouse) and touch-point (in the middle of the keyboard) mouse options.

I almost invariably use the touch-point and the accompanied scroller and key-buttons.

HOWEVER, for the scroller to be recognized by ubuntu you must run two scripts as follows:

xinput set-int-prop "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint" "Evdev Wheel Emulation" 8 1
xinput set-int-prop "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint" "Evdev Wheel Emulation Button" 8 2

Restarting the computer resets these settings, and you must re-run them each time you start up ubuntu.

I am looking to write a script that will automatically run itself (which will execute the above commands), or to permanently change these settings so that it will not be necessary to run them at each start-up.

Thanks in advance, and if there is another thread on these forums that I should move to (or even just another thread that would be a more likely place to get a response). This seemed like the best forum (one which can certainly hold this post without violating any rules), but I may have missed something.

Ubuntu :: Make Ibus Start Up Automatically And Quitely?

Jan 20, 2011

I used to input Chinese with scim input method, which can be trigered by Ctrl^Space. But this time, I reinstalled ubuntu 10.04, I have to manually start up ibus from System>Preference>ibus firstly before I can triger the input method by Ctrl^Space.

This is not over, the key problem is there are several dialogues to click "ok" with before I can really use the scim.

How can I make this ibus startup automatically and quitely?

I tried put command "ibus -setup" into my .profile, it does start up the ibus automatically every time when I login, but the dialogues still bothering me.

Software :: Make Nvida-settings Start Automatically In Xfce?

Jun 13, 2010

I've looked at the Arch wiki entry for configuring NVIDIA cards/drivers, and I found that you can put the command nvidia-settings --load-config-only into your DE's session startup configs to make it launch automatically upon login. However, I can't seem to figure out how to do this under Xfce. I've already tried modifying /etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-session.xml with the following:

<property name="Client4_PerScreen" type="bool" value="false"/>

I've been Googling all day and cannot find the answer. I find all the "GUI" ways to do it through Gnome and KDE but I'm not using either...I have an EEE PC set to boot up automatically to openbox and want Firefox to start after that in a full screen openbox window.I've tried adding the firefox command to ~/.initrc but it won't execute. I tried the command in .profile. This brings up firefox on a black screen without openbox.Firefox comes up fine when executed from the openbox menu.

Ubuntu :: Setting Up A Gnome-terminal To A Specific Profile

Oct 21, 2010

I am having trouble setting up a gnome-terminal to a specific profile. For example, when I open up R-cran I want the title to be 'R-cran'. And when I run Octave I would like the title to be 'Octave'. Pretty straight forward, so I thawt. So...I have been trying to set up and run different profiles for the different terminal windows that I want. I have set up 2 new profiles, 1) for R-cran 2) for Octave, each with their own titles.

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Start Openbox - No Errors

Jan 24, 2016

I asked the question on LQ, but since activity related to Debian there is smaller, it is here.

I can't start Openbox, using xinit or startx. I have a warning when using xinit:

Code: Select all***** Imlib2 Developer Warning ***** :

This program is calling the Imlib call:

    With the parameter:
    being NULL. Please fix your program.

I don't have dbus, display managers, X is started on tty3 because I reduced the number of ttys. In xinitrc there is

Code: Select allexec openbox-session

I see a cursor appearing for a second, but then the screen goes back to tty.

The problem is new; I'd been using Openbox for a couple of months back then, and it was fine.

System is Unstable.

For example, I already use my Caps key to toggle input language (via xorg.conf), but I want Capslock to behave like Esc in vim.

Looks like xmodmap doesn't have any options related to that.

General :: Start Terminal In Specific Folder In Ubuntu 10.10?

Apr 16, 2011

I keep all of my web design work under /var/www/(application_name). Nine times out ten, when I open a terminal, I'm heading to the www folder - cd /var/www. I would love to make that my "home" folder for the terminal, so it would just open there - I know if I ctrl+shift+t to open a new tab it defaults to the same dir, but it would be nice to have the first opened terminal default to there. Is this possible, or is there a better way to go about this?

General :: Make Slitaz USB Automatically Persistent?

Mar 24, 2010

I installed Slitaz on my USB. However I can't figure out how to make it persistent automatically. There are different sources telling me different ways to make it persistent.

One told me to add "slitaz home=usb" to the syslinux.cfg file like this:

append initrd=/boot/rootfs.gz rw root=/dev/null vga=normal autologin slitaz home=usb

but it didn't work for me. gave an example of how to do it manually but I didn't try it and I also want it to happen automatically. is an older article that also explains how to make the USB persistent but I don't want to try it cause it looks outdated (from 2008)

does anyone know the best way to make the USB automatically persistent?

2. I need to leave one thing running while running another, so if I could like open a new Terminal tab and run things that would be perfect.

3. I need to keep it all as one script, because the variables need to stay.
