I have a VM with Windows XP that is driving me crazy. Everything works great except the display windows (and networking, but that is a different story) I am open VirtManager and go to display the OS and the images will get distorted. I will open IE and scroll down a webpage and some of the text will remain still and others will move, leave an image of garbage. This makes it very aggravating to use. To clear the page I can shake the window (using the cursor not my hands) or move from one tab to another till it clears.. then if I scroll again I have to deal with it all over again.
I am doing a project on rdesktop. My aim is to setup a write/copy protected session. I have made rdesktop connection between two Linux machines using Xrdp.Next I want to disable the ctrl+x,ctrl+v keys and the cut and copy option in mouse right click at client side
Well after messing with compiz Opacity I managed to make all panels and windows transparent. Only thing I see is desktop background and icons. Tried ctrl+although+f1 and running gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz Then a reboot. Same issue. Next ran metacity --replace I get: Windows manager error: Unable to open X display
trying to set up a very minimal X on my 10.04 64 bit version of Ubuntu running nothing but Open SSH and acting as a firewall/router, making a PPP connection. The reason, is that I want to set up KVM/Qemu and run a virtual machine. The virtual machine will have a graphical environment and will be connected to my TV so that I can watch movies, stream TV etc. using it. So far, I have done the following:
" Mark the start of the text with "v", "V" or CTRL-V. The character under the cursor will be used as the start.""With CTRL-V (blockwise Visual mode) the highlighted text will be a rectanglebetween start position and the cursor."I can mark the start with "v" or "V".But it doesn't work when I push ctrl+V.
Its disappeared before and its gone again> Last time this happened there was a root input which solved the problem but did not take a note of it and cannot find it through google this time Basically left my Linux Acer Aspire One and when I returned to it, connection manager had disappeared and cannot get it back.
I have 3 layouts: USA, Russian and Hebrew. In Hebrew the W key is mapped to apostrophe, so Ctrl+W in Hebrew layout doesn't close tabs in Firefox. There is no workaround for it as I see by now, so I am trying to get it work this way:I want to map Ctrl+W in Hebrew layout(which is actually a Ctrl+') to be a Ctrl+w. Here is what I got from xmodmap:Code:$ xmodmap -pke | grep 25keycode 25 = w W Cyrillic_tse Cyrillic_TSE apostrophe WAs you can see, there are pairs for each layout, each pair tells what happens without and with the Shift key pressed.
getting a reverse proxy to work. I have it working fine on my windows box with at32 Reverse Proxy. It was very easy to setup. Anyway I'm wanting to replace that windows box with a Linux box.Here is some background on what I'm trying to get done in Linux.
I have [url].....
All pointing with a CNAME to my dyndns.org address. I have a dynamic IP from my ISP so I need this and its currently working just fine.my ISP blocks port 80 so I have to use port 443. Port 443 seems to be the most reliable port to use since its one of the ports my ISP does not block and its one of the ports other places like hotels dont block.So I want to access my bittorrent server. I type in http:[url]....443 and the at32 Reverse Proxy points it to my internal server http://bittorrent on port 80.
I got this to work perfect in windows.So right now I'm doing this all in a virtual machine for testing. I have Apache all setup and working with the reverse proxy except for my thermostat's web server.Here is how I have it setup in the virtual machine.The machine is called testbox and its running Ubuntu Alt 10.04 32bit .In that VM I can go to http: // testbox but it will only display the HTML code of the page.If I go directly to the main page on the thermostat http://testbox/index.shtml the web page renders just fine and all the links work.My sites-available config file has this inside.
I am currently running 64-bit Windows 7 from my home laptop and I would like to establish an SSH reverse tunnel to my laptop from my work Ubuntu 64-bit machine. I have been reading many "tutorials" that have led me nowhere and I feel as though I'm chasing my tail now. I have done the following on my Ubuntu machine:
Code: ssh -R 19999:localhost:22 laptop_ip and on my Windows machine, using putty, did the following: Code: Host Name: host_IP
I am able to access my Ubuntu machine when on my work network but there I have been unsuccessful when it comes to trying to remotely access it. I have tried everything that I can think of (though I am a novice). If there is any help/suggestions/ideas that could help, please let me know and don't hesitate to ask for more info!
p.s. I would also like to enable x-forwarding, but for now I would like to have remote access to the Ubuntu machine.
I had trouble connecting to a wireless network with openSUSE, so I tried the YAST network manager to see if that fixed it. Not only did it not fix it, but now I cannot connect to any network, wired or wireless. I tried to open the default network manager and it said "Network management disabled". How do I re-enable it?I also have set YAST settings back to their originals with no luck.
(Linux Noob here) I just installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix (the latest one off the official site) and had it installed on my Acer Aspire one Netbook. My netbook had Windows 7 prior to installing UNR. I managed to get a partition for UNR and installed it from the USB and just went with the steps (never gave me an option to install alongside Windows, since I booted using the UNR image from the USB).
so got UNR working but the problem is that there seems to be no option to boot to Windows 7. My netbook boots straight to UNR. I know I have to edit the GRUB or something but I have no idea how to even do this. How do I setup UNR so that I get the option to boot with either UNR or Windows. I previously installed Jolicloud and it was simple enough that it gave me the option to boot to either Jcloud or Win 7. How do I do this with UNR?
My friend borrowed my laptop for a while and when he gave it back he said he replaced Windows 7 with Ubuntu. I asked him to switch it back simply because I prefer Windows. He claims not to know how. I don't want to go buy a new windows 7 disc I just want to figure out how to get rid of this Ubuntu and Windows 7.
I have windows 7 home premium currently installed and I have just recently installed Linux Mint and it has replaced my MBR with GRUB. Is there any way I can restore the normal Windows 7 Boot Loader and have the secondary option to boot my Linux Mint?
I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 x64 and already am really annoyed by Firefox, which freezes my mouse after changing a tab (with ctrl+tab, alt+#) or closing it (ctrl+w). After about one second, i can continue working as usual. Changing Tabs by just clicking on one does not freeze anything...Maybe some of you would think now if I am crazy because of complaining about such a little thing, but it is really annoying if you are used to work fluently with ff.Edit:I today noticed, that not only shortcuts in firefox, but all Hotkeys freeze my mouse for a second. For examle ctrl+c, ctrl+v, super+e or anything else.Do you have any Idea what causes this behaviour? Reinstalling ubuntu didn't change anything
I installed Ubuntu, with a dual boot functionality and worked great. I was recommended Backtrack 4 and I installed it in the system. Now, I try to use the dual boot with Backtrack, Ubuntu and Windows 7 and only Backtrack works. I tried the restore disks that I created when I got the laptop, but the problem persists. s there a way to delete this Backtrack from the system and go back to Windows 7?
