So when I upgraded to Slack64 13.1 on my asus MB homebrewed desktop and Slack 13.1 on my compaq presario a900 laptop, I started having issues with the xterm title (in Terminal--not Konsole) being too dynamic. By "too dynamic" I mean that I can't actually change the title. The dynamic title (from my .bashrc) is basically just pwd. Whenever I try to set the title (via terminal->set title (menu)), I changes it for a split second, and then reverts back to the dynamic title.
This is merely a petty annoyance, so to get around it, I added an xtitle function that I grabed somewhere online (just echos "�33]0;$*�07"). So for nano-ing some file, I'd type:xtitle some_file.txt; nano some_file.txt
That works just fine (kind of annoying to type though). running xtitle alone won't actually change the name either though (I'm pretty sure it's the same command as what terminal does anyway). That is, running: xtitle some_file.txt
changes the title for a split second, and the reverts back to my old pwd.What I really want is to have it dynamically name it "some_file.txt" whenever I use nano, but that appears to be a functionality of zsh (with the preexec() fxn).I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and if you have a fix for it.
I've been using Kubuntu for about 6 months now and decided to try something new. So i switched to arch linux, and after much deliberation, I got KDE functional on it. There's just one problem. The icons aren't displaying properly. Here's a picture: http://s44.photobucket.com/albums/f8.../snapshot1.png
How do I change the turquoise-ish plasma-desktop and title bar things. Also whenever i open something, it asks me basically where i want to position it. How do i stop it from asking me that as well?
Also, how do I login as something other than root? I did adduser, but no login screen shows up for me.
I have got Ubuntu with Xfce installed, and I would like to change default session to Gnome, or LXDE (depending on if my computer would run it properly). Looks like there is no options button while logging in, or anything similar.
I have changed my background color of xterm/konsole to black (better for eye since i got to face monitor for long hour).In my vi file, there is a color setting to put all comment # with deep blue color. This make it very difficult to see if the blackground color is black color. How could i change color setting in vi or vim ? I want to change the blue color to cyan.
I've changed the terminal colors and now irssi statusbars have white text on light blue background. I would like to change the foreground color of the irssi statusbars to black but can't figure out how to do it. I don't want to download a whole theme, I only want to change this one color.
accidentally I raised my brightness to 100% so I couldn't see anything..My battery died before I could fix it with tab or something else.now I can't fix it because I can't see anything.Is there a way to adjust color brightness through my unix terminal.....?
I am using export in 'Inkscape' to convert an SVG file to PNG. As I am using a transparent background, the colour of background is automatically set to yellow. I want to change this default colour to white. How can I do this?
Seems to be a silly question, but does anybody know how to change the title of an pdf document? (even in the console)I searched in Okular, pdfedit, gimp and gnome documentviewer but they dont seem to have a title option.Only open office writer has this option, but this is actually not saved in the pdf title tag.(I need it as Google indexes the title tag and I have there an ugly path name at the moment.)
I had installed Ubuntu And Kubuntu Dual-Boot, at the Boot-screen i see the following two OS to enter....but i want to change their title names(Which is displayed at Boot-Screen). My Boot-screen picture is attached herewith. I want to change these names to Ubuntu & Kubuntu Respectively.
I have also checked menu.list but their i am unable to find Following titles(Which i have showed in picture, exceptMemtest 86+)
I have issue with cpufreq frontend in LXDE, I cant change governor. I am in powerdev group. Maybe I dont have permission to change governor with this plugin. I am using Debian Squeeze. Please what can I do, I can change the gowernor: cpufreq-set -g ... , but I want to do that like normal user in cpufreq frontend in LXDE.
Currently my display is set to 1280x960 at 60Hz, but my monitor supports 1920x1080, which is what I would like to have. Preferences -> Monitor Settings (lxrandr) does not change anything & does not show my desired resolution either. I tried using the Nvidia propietary drivers but whenever I try to switch to them from xorg.conf the X display can't start. right now I am using the nouveau driver. I've seen some xrandr commands but so far haven't been able to figure out what I need to do.
I am on Debian 7.6.0 (Wheezy) amd64: Code: Select all$ uname -rms Linux 3.2.0-4-amd64 x86_64
