General :: Start New Installed XFCE4 AUTOMATICALLY?
Jul 8, 2010
I just removed the gnome from the ubuntu 9.10.then i reninstall the xfce4.i am invoking the xfce4 by typing#startxi want to start the xfce4 as usual like the gnome did automatically by asking login window.
I use Opensuse 11 with fvwm. How can I get conky start automatically when I start fvwm?
I setup the conky under fvwm session for my Opensuse 11 but it won't start automatically. I am wondering how to write some kind of scripts to force it to start automatically and with a delay about 10 seconds after fvwm starts.
I just installed the XFCE4 desktop environment after installing 'menu'. I then logged out and logged back in after changing session to XFCE. My question is weather or not my installation and configuration of TOR and Polipo are going to work the same within this environment? Am I going to have to reconfigure? Or is this just a change in how the desktop environment is handled within Ubuntu?
It's so frustrating that it costs me much self-control not to express my feelings about that directly.So the problem is that XFCE4 and GNOME starts after I choose GNOME option at start-up (in GDM or KDM - I don't know which of them I have as default).If I choose XFCE4 at start-up there is no problem - only XFCE4 starts. Otherwise (if I choose GNOME) GNOME starts and XFCE4 at the same time.
I want to start process automatically For Ex:- To start snort it need the root user, So here I need a script which will start snort automatically without asking the root user or password.So that I can start snort from anywhere as same as root
I am using Kde 4.4 and I would like to start one of the applications automatically after every login to the system. How can I configure it? I remember I managed to find a dialog window in one of the previous versions, but I can't find it now.
I'm wondering how I start it automatically when I boot up the ubuntu 10.04? especially, when I created the user "postgres", I set a password to it. every time I issued "su - postgres" command, I need to give it a password.
One of our client was complaining that their server was down and mysql and apache services were down. The server is Ubuntu 8.04. When we checked, the permissions of /etc/init.d/mysql and /etc/init.d/apache2 were changed to 644 from 755. How could this be possible?I need your valuable suggestions on how can i monitor whether any malicious intrusions or scripts are running.
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.
I want to start recording when someone starts talking, and stop recording when it becomes silent. I guess if there is stream audio processing tool like ImageMagick, so I can strip away blank sections like this:
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?
I am running Debian Squeeze with icewm as desktop environment. I am trying to start feh automatically when the desktop finishes loading. I have tried crontab -e with @reboot /usr/bin/feh /home/user/photos/ & I think that the best way to do this would be to monitor for the x-session-manag process. The reason I think this would be a good solution is that I killed x-session-manag and it killed my x-session and straight to command line interface.
I have for like 4 days now been doing a SourceMage 10.0 install on my K7 PC. I cant get X to start and cant get the nvidia driver installed

When browsing the web, maybe I end up in a link to download some stuff through the internet. When I click a window opens prompting me (desktop environment= xfce) what to do with the file. Who is in charge of the download procedure from my side of the cable? I'll assume he is the download manager, a term new to me up to recently.
Just ran update, and it automatically installed an acroread package (9.4.2 60.5Mb). Thing is I removed acroread in favour of foxit a while back.Why would I receive updates for programs I no longer have installed?
I've been doing a bit of tweaking, exploring, damaging the system *But making backups for those occasions... They weren't on purpose, I was just trying figure out how they work* Okay, so... How can I get rid of all the XFCE and GNOME packages? Is there a list of all the packages that I can remove? I don't like how minimal XFCE looks and GNOME3 is OKAY, but not my cup of tea, and KDE4.6 with classic toolbar looks pretty cool.
To clarify, I want to remove ALL XFCE and GNOME packages so I can just have a clean KDE environment without non-working and redundant packages.
I installed opera10 and I can start it from a shell script from the opera folder but when i try to make a desktop shortcut it does not work. Either from xfce or by right clicking and choosing to send it to the desktop as a shortcut.
I did not install opera system wide, only under one user. Do I need to set some kind of path or link or something?
I recently did a fresh reinstall of opensuse 11.2 kde. After I installed it I updated the computer. However, when I returned to my computer after the update, I found the window borders to be missing and that I couldn't do anything with the desktop. I restarted, and lo and behold! I had KDE 4.4! Except I didn't want to install it. I perfectly like kde 4.3, and would probably prefer to move back to it until kde 4.4 becomes stable. Why did this happen? Had opensuse moved on to kde 4.4 already? Is there a way to get KDE 4.3 without reinstalling?
I upgraded to 10.04 and my AWN dock won't automatically start even though the 'box' is tic'd and it's showing in the Startup Applications. I did lose all of my configurations as well after upgrading and had to reinstall everything on the dock.
Also, there are little numbers on the launchers like for Trash and Email that tell me how many items are in there. The Trash was easy to remove the numbers by right clicking and choosing the Preferences option. There was a place to disable that but there isn't one for the Email and those little numbers look well.
