Ubuntu :: 10.4 - Setting Default Terminal Window Size To Screen Width

Oct 3, 2010

In 10.4 I had set my default terminal size to my screen width - I type some long commands. After running an update this morning, my terminal comes up in the install default size. Using the preferences dialog, I cannot find the control to set the default width. Has it been removed? I hope I'm looking in the wrong place, but I have a chilling feeling that it's been dropped or perhaps just accidentally commented out.

General :: Setting Default Font In Emacs 23.2.1?

Apr 2, 2011

I'm using emacs 23.2.1 with quack on Linux and trying to set my default typeface to Inconsolata Medium 13. It is installed on my system (debian sid) and can be set manually per buffer in emacs. However, I would like it to be used throughout and by default. My suspicion is that quack's mode is somehow conflicting.

I've searched a good deal looking for information on font customization in emacs. Although there is documentation and examples out there, I've found them fairly incoherent when taken together and nothing specifically addressing this issue. Here is my .emacs

set-default-font "Inconsolata-13")
Turn on visible-bell, get rid of beeps
setq visible-bell t)
Hilight the selected region
setq transient-mark-mode t)

Ubuntu Installation :: Adjust The Default Setting Via /etc/default/grub?

May 29, 2010

I have already had Vista installed on another drive and from what i've read on the webs you get to dualboot if you install ubuntu after vista. when i did install it (i installed on a blank hdd with no partitions, choosing the "erase entire disk" option since for some reason default option was attempting to eat a part of my windows 1 gb drive instead of using disk i specially made for it) and the grub 2 loaded for the first time, there was NO option to run vista. only 2 linux (normal and recovery) and 2 memtests. I've ran linux and went to google this. I found that i should add something to some config files in /etc/grub.d/From reading the readme file i understood i could add my own files that are named like NUMBER_SOMENAME and insert code into them. Because it said:Quote: For example, you can add an entry to boot another OS as01_otheros, 11_otheros, etc, depending on the position you want it to occupy inthe menu; and then adjust the default setting via /etc/default/grub. But then i found a file 40_custom that said:

exec tail -n +3 $0

General :: Start Server With GUI (kde/gnome) To Terminal By Default?

Jun 13, 2011

I've set up home server, which doesn't have to be as powerful as other servers, so I decided to install GUI because of applications that are alternatives to classical GUI applications in headless version requires more skill/knowledge. However, I don't want server to run GUI always at start (which gnome-desktop package does). I need some configuration in KDE/gnome/xfce (haven't decided) that doesn't start GUI after each start (e.g is required to type startx or equivalent command to start GUI)(off topic: can you also recommend good remote-administration with GUI transport ?)

General :: Removing SCIM Input Method As Default From Gnome Terminal?

Feb 16, 2010

While I can find my way around most things, terminals and desktop managers are different than I remember. One of the biggest problems that I am encountering today is that when running a gnome terminal (this is Suse 10.0 enterprise), I'm getting behavior in the window that I don't want. Specifically, when I type, my typing is underlined as if something is trying to spell check my window. Further, it seems as if when running vi or less, my keystrokes are only processed by these apps when I hit 'return'. I.e. if I'm running less and want to go back a page, I'll hit b, but nothing happens until I hit 'return'.

I seem to have tracked this down to the 'input method". Right clicking in the Gnome terminal allows me to set my input method to one of a dozen values. It seems that currently, it's set to "SCIM Input Method". If I then select 'default' or 'X Input Method', apps (i.e. things like less, vi, and even the bash shell) behave as I would expect.

a) what is this SCIM input method

b) how can I make it so that it is not the default?

I've poked around various configuration files in my home directory as well as in /etc, but I can't see to find how this is set.

Fedora :: Setting GDM Back To Default?

Jan 20, 2010

I tried changing my Theme via MAC4LIN and it didnt work i get an error messege that shows:

cp: cannot stat `/etc/gdm/gdm.conf': No such file or directory
sed: can't read /etc/gdm/gdm.conf: No such file or directory
sed: can't read /etc/gdm/gdm.conf: No such file or directory

Previous to this i had tried installing KDM but it didnt appear to do anything (as in change any of the display management settings) The guide that i was reading to install MAC4LIN just uses GDM so i decided not to pursue KDM anymore. I Get the following read out:

[Jason@Echo ~]$ yum info gdm
Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit
Installed Packages
Name : gdm
Arch : i686


The goal is to set all my GDM settings back to normal so i can have that gdm.conf file. Anyone know a way to set the GDM back and repair any damage ive done?

Ubuntu :: Setting GRUB Default Boot?

Jun 28, 2010

I'm trying to configure GRUB to boot XP preferentially- my wife insists. Having looked up the GRUB manual I see that I can set this using the default command.

The problem is, when I go to my grub command line default is not a recognized command. If I hit TAB for a list of commands, it isn't there.

I think I'm using some 0.9x version of GRUB, since the partitions etc seem to be numbered starting at 0, not 1.

While I'm at it, I was just going to play around and figure this out, but: the menu interface lists five versions of Ubuntu (all those weird kernel variations) then XP. So would XP be default 1 or default 5?

Ubuntu :: Setting Default OS To Boot In Grub 1.98?

Jan 27, 2011

I Just updated my 10.04 LTS system, which dual boots Windows XP. Prior to the update the default was to boot to XP, now it is to Memtest.

I tried to edit /etc/default/ grub and make the default be 14 instead of 12, which would be XP, but Ubuntu, (using gedit), refused to accept my change.

I don't have a problem scrolling around to pick XP, or the latest Linux kernel to boot, but my wife sure does. How can I make Ubuntu/Grub default to to XP ?

Ubuntu :: Setting Custom Default Applications In 11.04?

Apr 30, 2011

I'm trying to set the default apps using gnome-default-applications-properties. In previous versions I was able to set custom apps for everything. Looks like Gnome3/Ubuntu 11.04 doesn't let me do that for, say, the mail reader. I'm one of those people who still use Alpine, and in previous versions I was able to set the default to run an xterm (well, aterm) which auto-ran alpine.

This version, looks like that's not there. I'm wondering if there's a way to set that anyway. like registering a script I write as a "mail client" so it's available in the chooser. Second... and almost MORE annoying... the "Terminal Emulator" default app DOES have a custom option. But it also recognises that I have aterm installed, which I want to use as the default app... however, since it has an aterm option, it won't let me enter aterm as a default command. Which I want to do because I want to modify the commandline options. But if you choose "Custom" and type "aterm" into the Command field... it ERASES your commandline options and puts it's default sterm options in!

Ubuntu :: Setting Default File Permissions

Jun 26, 2011

I have a file server running a cronjob to reset file permissions on a regular basis. I was thinking, I wonder if there is a way to do the chmod and chown command in a single command, as I always have to do both on the same folder, the way that you can do "chown root:users Uploads" instead of having to do two separate commands for chown and chgrp.

Then I got to thinking, are these commands even necessary? Every file copied or moved into these folders by any user needs to be something like "chmod 750" and "chgrp root:users", so rather than running a cronjob to do these modifications at regular intervals, there ought to be a way to set the folder permissions so that any files contained within will have these permissions.

The problem arises because users create documents, then a supervisor with elevated privileges can move those documents into a shared folder, however the permissions are wrong, they are user1:user1 for the owner and group and the other users can't read the file until a cronjob changes the group to be users. This has actually been acceptable, but certainly there is a better way to do this.

Software :: Setting The Default Desktop For User?

Aug 20, 2009

I am creating a music server. I have the video of the box connected to my TV. This is an OLD computer, so I'm trying to lean up the normal software running as much as possible. I have the computer logging in as guest if no one logs in within 30 secs. Right now, it logs into gnome for everyone. Btw, I'm running FC8 on this computer. It is running gdm. I would like it to have it use something lighter like twm when logged in as guest. But I still want a full gnome session when anyone else logs in.
