General :: Ubuntu Distributions - Put Multiple Virtual Desktops In Panel

Oct 22, 2010

I first tried latest version 10.10 desktop. very slow booting in a Centrino CPU laptop not booting at all in a N455 CPU netbook. Tried version 10.04 which seems to work better fast booting in Centrino CPU laptop. fast booting in N455 CPU netbook. From Centrino Laptop with Windows XP on HD, once loaded Ubuntu as persistent live program from a USB drive, tried to install the program on SD memory card in PC slot. Upon request, installation made onto that memory only, not on inside HD, hence formatting only that memory. Upon completion, after removing the external memories and booting again the PC it does not boot of its own any more. XP OS damaged. I have recovered the system with a Toshiba backup CD but the HD has been formatted and all data lost. How can this happen ? I'll never try anymore to permanently install Ubuntu. I'll use it as persistent live on an external memory. I only have an old PC laptop with 128 MB RAM for further installation testing but no Ubuntu release can boot there. By the way, Lubuntu 10.10 look more fast and safe although appears to have more limitations then Ubuntu 10.10.

Ubuntu :: Different Wallpapers On Virtual Desktops?

May 27, 2010

So I've seen the tutorials where you simply tell nautilus to not draw the wallpaper and then use ccsm's wallpaper-plugin to set different wallpapers. It's just that I don't seem to have said plugin Where could it be?

Debian Multimedia :: GNOME Virtual Desktops Across Two Monitors

Apr 25, 2016

I recently installed Debian 8 (Jessie) with the default desktop environment (Gnome), and I use a dual monitor setup. Everything works absolutely fine beyond the fact that when I switch between desktops in the dash (Activities menu?), only the windows on my primary monitor switch, and the ones on my secondary stay the same.

Fedora :: Missing Where To Set Individual Virtual Desktops Wallpaper - 12 With KDE

Jan 3, 2010

I use 4 virtual desktops and under Fedora 8 and KDE was able for each to have a unique wallpaper. Since installing Fedora 12 and KDE I can't seem to find a way to get that feature. I can name each virtual desktop but not set individual wallpaper. I've searched the documents for both KDE and Fedora, they say how to set the wallpaper but not for individual desktops.

Debian Configuration :: Multiple Virtual Servers Be Setup In 2 Desktops?

Jun 12, 2010

I now have 2 desktops running debian. I have virtual servers running in desktop 1, and I am hosting my photos using Gallery2. I have copied Gallery2 and the mysql over to desktop 2. I have entered port forward to desktop 1 using port 80 (using my router), and desktop 2 using port 1000. I can only access Gallery2 in desktop1. If I tried to access Gallery2 in desktop 2, I got re-directed to desktop1.


1. Are home routers capable of port forward to more than one computers in a home network behind the firewall of the router? It is Belkin N+ router.

2. Can multiple virtual servers be setup in 2 desktops?

Debian Configuration :: Separate Virtual Desktops On Dual Monitors?

Jul 19, 2011

I have a ThinkPad W520 with nVidia Quadro 1000M and Nouveau drivers. I use external monitor with extended desktop using XRandR. My beef with this setup is that I get just one virtual desktop of a (1440+1920)x1080 size whereas what I would like to have is being able to have one separate (set of) virtual desktop(s) on my 1440x1080 external monitor with, for example, some reference material open, while have other programs working on another (set of) virtual desktop(s) on my main 1920x1080 screen. I've read that this might be possible with so called zaphod mode, but it looks like it involves static rules in xorg.conf which I would like to avoid since from time to time I need to carry my laptop with me without external monitor.

Software :: Put Multiple Virtual Desktops In Panel - Distributions Based In Debian

Jan 21, 2011

According to Distrowatch, the two most downloaded distributions are Mint and Ubuntu. I have put both on my computer. In Mint I can find no way to put multiple virtual desktops in my panel. In Ubuntu 10.10, when I go to synaptic package manager the settings tab with the repositories is dimmed out. I have enabled the sources list in administration but it is a less convenient way to add repositories. Despite what the linux community seems to think, I find that Simply Mepis and Pclinuxos are better for actual use.

Ubuntu :: Xmonad - Keybindings Without Mod?

Jul 16, 2011

recently added xmonad and seems pretty fun! was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to add keybindings that don't start with the modmask key..reason needed is that i want to have the win key to be the modmask and then need shift+alt to switch between two languages. So far I've "hacked" it by writing a script that switches between the two languages whenever it runs, and I've bound that to modmask + shift however this causes problems whenever I press modmask + shift for other shortcuts...

Also, how do you make keybindings work for different languages.. effectively what I need is identify each key as a key rather than as a character.

Ubuntu :: Xmonad Is Failing To Respond

May 13, 2011

I'm running Xmonad and just recently it has stopped responding. None of my shortcuts are working at all. So I deleted my ~/.xmonad/xmoand.hs file, and still no luck. So I decided to log in as root and Xmonad works perfectly. Anyone know why Xmonad isn't working under my normal user? Is there a button i accidently pressed turning off the mod key?I was just browsing the web, then after I closed my browser nothing has been working, even after reboot.

Slackware :: Using The Esperanto Locale In Xmonad For Sometime?

Apr 29, 2011

I have been having some trouble using the Esperanto locale in Xmonad for sometime. I used this locale mainly in the terminal, because obviously Xmonad is a tiling WM and doesnt need a specific locale itself. I found that Esperanto locale prevents Xmonad from starting, but that if the LANG locale is exported after Xmonad is already started, it will turn my xterminal into an Esperanto terminal. Thus opening mutt mail will show Esperanto-Mutt, and for instance "command not found" becomes "komando ne trovita". I enjoy seeing this.

So the trick then is running "export LANG="eo.utf8"" just after xmonad loads before any other programs are run. I tried various things, and now wonder is it possible to just have the terminal itself running it its own locale? I could run this manually in every terminal, but wonder about automating it. I use the Xfce4-Terminal.

I tried .bash_profile, .xinitrc, .bashrc, and I tried adding the export to a bash script set to run by xmonad after it starts up. None of these cause the desired effect. I also notice it is temporary. If I open a terminal and do the export, that terminal is Esperantized. If I open a new terminal it is back to english.

Another thing I noticed is that after xmonad starts, if I manually add the export to .bashrc, all the terminals are in Esperanto. So I am thinking of making a script that does a find and replace of the .bashrc to add the export. Its tricky, some kind of sed-grep action. Another idea would be to put the .bashrc in a weird location so it isnt found on startup. Then make a command to symlink to it in the user folder after Xmonad starts. The main Slackware system would be English locale in order to prevent Xmonad from barfing on startup.

General :: What Are Basic Differences Between Desktops?

Jun 4, 2010

I took the simple approach and installed the gnome desktop, but I have read about KDE and Xfce and am curious. There may be a lot more that I just haven't heard about yet too. So the question is: Without doing a reinstall and messing up the downloads and settings I have now, how do I try a new desktop like Xfce or Kde? Also, what are the basic differences between the desktops?

General :: Running Different Desktops From Startx?

Oct 9, 2010

So, I am having difficulty understanding what I need to do or if this can be done at all..

I would like to boot into the command line for my Linux system but, still have access to the different environments as well (KDE, GNOME, Enlightenment, etc) but I don't know how to do that using startx. that seems to only start KDE.

Can you use startx in some way to optionally start another environment? If not, can it be set up to start that graphical umm.. like start chooser screen? I don't know all the terms but its the screen that comes up that you enter your username/password and you can select which environment you like.

Fedora Networking :: Manage WiFi On LXDE With Xmonad?

Apr 6, 2011

I got myself into some trouble this afternoon when I thought I would give xmonad a try on my HP mini 210 that runs f14 lxde spin. so, after installing xmonad and dmenu and playig around a bit I found out that my wifi doesn't work. I tried ifup but I get the 'usage: .." response which I have read means that the programm can't find a configuration file for the device (and I am pretty sure that some programm was managing these files for me up until now).

I have tried to run system-config-network, which defaults to the tui version for some reason, I guess at this point that the normal gui is based on the gnome backend or something? Anyway, the terminal version just outputs a bunch of info about the devices that exist on the system (eth1 the broadcom wifi device is also listed) and then exits.

Anyway, in the normal lxde desktop you could use the gnome network manager, I guess this is not the case when running xmonad. So how do I do this? Links to documentation are welcomed. EDIT: some info about how I get to xmonad, the machine uses the standard LXDM login and from there I just select the xnomad window manger before logging in. I mean I am not trying to use it on top of anything else (eg. xmonad/gnome or xmonad/lxde etc.)
