Ubuntu :: Change The Window Scrollbars In 11.04 From The Frankly Annoying Minimalist Orange Strip?

Apr 30, 2011

Is there any way to change the window scrollbars in 11.04 from the frankly annoying minimalist orange strip to the far more user friendly large bar with clickable arrows top and bottom?

I'm using Ubuntu Classic Desktop...if I really couldn't get on with this scrollbar...would I actually have to go back to the previous OS release?

Slackware :: All Window Managers Work But Certain Elements Are Distorted

Apr 26, 2010

I've tried KDE, XFCE & fluxbox (this latter of which I think I prefer). They all work but they all have similar streaks & distortions on the GUI. Is this certainly a driver issue?

Also, after using them for a while they freeze.

In an earlier thread dc_eros suggested installing the latest openchrome, which fixed a similar problem he had with his first slack13.

Occasionally when I start Ubuntu, all desktop widgets get skinned down. This is what it looks like when it's normal:


This is what it looks like when something goes wrong:

General :: X11 Forwarding With An Already Running Window?

May 21, 2011

I'm trying to forward the X session to my Windows laptop (using Xming and putty), and I have no problem opening new programs such as gedit and having them forward, but how would I forward something such as a Firefox window which is already open and running? I don't want to shut it down and restart it. Is there any way of forwarding something that's already running? And if so, can I "unforward" the X session without closing the program down?

General :: Window Manager - Running As A Desktop With KDE/Gnome But Without 'X Server'?

Oct 14, 2010

I'm curious, I believe that one of the ways that OSX make the GUI experience of *nix more 'snappy' was to ditch X and run the window manager more directly on the hardware.

If I'm looking to run Linux on a desktop, and have no interest in sending Windows to other machines on the network, can I run KDE or Gnome with no 'X' to eliminate that ever-so-slight lag with the window manager experience.

I guess basically what I'm asking is is there an equivalent of quartz for Linux?

Ubuntu :: New Scrollbars In 11.04

May 3, 2011

I don't know if you've been as shocked as i was when using 11.04, but i found the new "overlay scrollbars" completely useless.

what is the logic in hovering in one place to make an invisible scrollbar appear on the right-hand side of the mouse pointer and then move to that scrollbar and use it (if you're lucky enough the scrollbar doesn't disappear as you move towards it)? I've been struggling with that thing for 10 minutes and then i had enough already.

By all means, innovation is great, it's cool to think of new ways to use computers etc. But please don't make default on a distro something as dodgy as this. When i see these scrollbars i have a hard time believing it was widely tested: has there been a poll at all to get user feedback? New things should not be implemented for the sake of being new or different. In my opinion, if something doesn't really improve the OS or desktop environment, then it's not worth making it default.

Ubuntu :: 11.4 Classic - Move Down A Single Line With The New Scrollbars?

May 6, 2011

I would have thought the arrows at the edges of the new scrollbar move up/down by line and the grey pads of space between the separator would move by pg/up or down. All seems correct with the exception of the arrows to move up/down.I look around through code, manuals and pdfs and such often and used to the use arrow pointers at the top and bottom of the old scrollbar style to move down or up by line all with the with the new scroll bar I find myself struggling all the time for this type of simple operation as it seems the arrows in the overlay scrollbar perform a pgDown/pgUp operation not a move down/up line....anyone know how?

PS - If anyone is curious on how to best to test this on your own, a simple test I did was to create a text file of line numbers with the following command:

seq 1 200 > numbers.txt

Fedora :: Two Versions Of Flash In Firefox And Keep The Scrollbars At The Side And Bottom?

Feb 14, 2010

No matter how many times I update or install new flash plugins in firefox, I always wind up with 2 versions of the 'Shockwave Flash' plugin. The first is the prevous version of Adobe, the second is the current version of either Adobe, Gnash or Swfdec. I use yum to keep my packages in synch. When a new version of Adobe comes though, it erases the older version of the currently installed plugin, keeps the newer currently installed version, and installs itself as the new version, both versions enabled.

Hope that paragraph makes sense to you, it gave me a headache to write. Further, they must both be enabled for any of them to work, and which ever I use the video is slow, choppy and prone to pausing for no apparent reason. The CPU usage is always pegged to the roof and the sound is often out of synch.

What I'm wondering is whether or not this is the normal situation or if I'm doing something wrong? I've been playing with Ubuntu and have noticed that only one version installs at one time, and the video playback is much better, if still not exactly smooth.

how to keep the scrollbars at the side and bottom of Firefox a contant width? They seem to change with the Full Zoom Level of NoSquint, which is a bit of a pain.

General :: 'make Menuconfig' To Make These Files Modules Rather Than Compiled Elements?

Feb 25, 2011

I need to modify fs/open.c and fs/read_write.c to make my modifications. I cannot find any options in 'make menuconfig' to make these files modules rather than compiled elements. I'm thinking these cannot be modules because the file system won't work without open.c and read_write.c. Is this correct - I cannot compile fs/open.c and fs/read_write.c as modules, only as compiled elements? Or, is there some way for a module to overwrite these routines when the module is installed and re-enable the routines when the module is removed?

Software :: Running F-Spot - Window Flashed Up For A Second Then Disappeared

Feb 26, 2010

when I first installed Ubuntu (Karmic, x86), I removed the install of F-Spot via the Software Centre. I just tried reinstalling it, and the install went fine. Then I tried running it. The window flashed up for a second, then disappeared. It does this every time I try to run it, even after a cold boot. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times, using USC, Synaptic, and apt-get. Always with the same result. I tried running it from terminal using sudo, and got the following output:

General :: Disallow Closing Last Emacs Window Via Window-Manager Close Button

Jul 8, 2011

I like to start Emacs as part of a login script and leave it running for the duration of my login session (which is typically weeks).

I have scripts to call emacs-client which will allow me to use a file-manager or Windows Explorer to locate files and right-click to edit them in Emacs.

I often end up with a lot of emacs windows (frames) open and I like to just be able to close them by clicking on the MS-Windows or KDE X button at the top-right.

The trouble is, if the window is the last one, this will shut down emacs which will lose all kinds of interesting history information.

As a work-around I use C-x 5 0 which won't let me close the last frame but this is often not as convenient as using the mouse

Does anyone know how to configure Emacs so that it can intercept the Window-Close button of the last frame to either request confirmation or simply disallow it?

On MS-Windows, disallowing closing of the last window may cause logoff to hang if emacs is still running but I'm not too worried about that.

Fedora Security :: How To Prevent The Appearance Changing Window Running

May 21, 2009

I want to prevent users changing the wallpaper, as i couldn't found any direct method I thought of preventing the /usr/bin/gnome-appearance-properties being running,

I know that the user also can set the wallpaper without running that . But didn't found any other way .

I tried to use SELinux to it and I'm stuck at writing a own policy.

According to SELinux, it prevents everything ., but as i have mapped the user to a SElinux user ,even though he can use administrative tasks , he can run the appearance window. that means he has got the permission from a different policy , Currently I'm stuck at this place.

Suitable way to prevent the wallpaper being changed by the normal users.
