General :: Setting System Defaults Screensaver Gnome?

Feb 15, 2010

what file do you set the defaults in? I want to set all my users to use a blank screensaver and a time out of 20min. password required. Have been looking all over the place for a valid config file I can edit and the syntax for it. I should also mention I want these to be default for all user that CANNOT be changed except by root. Red Hat running gnome in my case.

Ubuntu :: Way To Restore Gnome Defaults / System Defaults

Apr 21, 2011

I installed the Elegant Gnome theme/package and I uninstalled it after about a week of use. Even after reverting back to the ambiance theme, or other themes, I've noticed that some elements of the Elegant Gnome theme have remained (e.g. the panel color and icons in Chrome or after right clicking and the system font).Is there a way to restore the Gnome defaults or Ubuntu system defaults so that everything is as it should be?

Ubuntu :: Install WINE Screensaver In Gnome-screensaver Possible?

May 19, 2010

There's an OSS screensaver on windows that I love called PixelCity (links:blog post, github). it's pretty cool. and it runs fine on my Ubuntu (Karmic 9.10) with wine.Is there a way I can tell the gnome-screensaver about it so I can use it as one of my screensavers? I'm still fairly new to Gnome and the whole "screensavers as themes" thing is still confusing me.I've found my themesdir and tried to create a .desktop file for it, but obviously I've gotten something wrong as it just doesn't show when I open the screensaver prefs dialog, no error, no message, it's just not there.

Installing the xscreensaver packages added the extra screensavers I was missing, and I'm a pixelcity away from perfection..Of course the perfect solution would be if someone ported the screensaver natively to linux, which shouldn't be too hard as the source is open, it already runs on openGL and tries to confine most windows stuff to a single file. But I don't know C++ or 3D code or win/linux internals so I wouldn't know where to start..

General :: GNOME Screensaver Widgets

Apr 10, 2010

Is there a way to add widgets to a Gnome screensaver? I think this can be done with KDE 4, but I've never liked KDE very much. I'm a programmer and comfortable with writing code if needed.

I'd like to be able to:

See the weather and forecast
Control Rhythmbox
Use a flash card widget for reviewing musical concepts

The reason I want these on the screensaver is that I have login restrictions. I would like to be able to do a very limited subset of activities without having to log in.

General :: Is It Safe To Lock The Screen With The Gnome-screensaver?

Mar 8, 2011

USB driver bug exposed as "Linux plug&pwn" or this link.Two choices [GNOME, Fedora 14]:

1 - use the gnome-screensaver

2 - use the "switch user" function [gnome menu -> log out -> switch user]

So the question is: which one is the safer method to lock the screen, if a user leaves the pc? Is it true, that using the [2] method is safer?Why do i think this? - The gnome-screensaver is just a "process", it could be killed. But if you use the log out/switch user function, it's "something else". Using the "switch user" function, could there be a problem like with the gnome-screensaver? Could someone "kill a process" and presto...the lock is removed?Could the GDM [??] "login windows process" [e.g.: a picture of it] get killed and the "lock" gets owned?

p.s.: if the [2] method is safer, then how can i put an icon on the GNOME panel, to launch the "switch user" action by 1 click?

Ubuntu :: Getting The New Grub To See Newly Installed OS (on Other HDD) And Setting Defaults?

May 20, 2010

So I just had gotten to know the old Grub a little when I upgraded Ubuntu to find the new Grub, which I barely understand at all! My use of Ubuntu is mostly for learning and recreational as my bread and butter is working on people's messed up Windoze systems, since that is where the work is. Naturally I've got to use and work with Windoze to know how to fix it and keep it running cleanly, but Ubuntu was the first Linux I found that to me seems like something that could be potentially be embraced by "non geeks". I have as yet to get anyone to try it; it is all about keeping up with the Joneses and having what they have. There is also that old pervasive myth that you get what you pay for, which with computers, I find the opposite is so often true, that the good stuff is mostly free.

In any case I dabble a lot with Ubuntu for fun and personal knowledge, but since I put 10 on I had only Windoze 7 on my machine at the time. It picked it up and I purposely installed Grub to my Ubuntu drive (I used separate physical drives, so that if you removed the Ubuntu drive, 7 would boot as if Grub and Linux were never on the machine and that is the way I like it since I tinker a lot.). The trouble is that I need Win 7 to be the default and I don't know how to do that with Grub 2 (is it 2?) I used to know with the old one. Also, I have since added a 160GB PATA drive with XP on it, since so much of the help I am asked to give over the phone is with XP and I am not one who can talk others through things unless I can see it myself. Plus there are some things I do that just plain old work best with XP. So I also need to add XP to my boot menu, and it is, on a separate physical drive as well, and I wanted that the same too; if you made the XP drive the priority boot device it will boot XP as if it was the only OS on the machine.

What the ideal for me would be is to have the Ubuntu drive as the one it boots from, Windoze 7 to be the default OS, and XP to be on the menu too. I have been able in all of the time with Ubuntu and Linux in general to find precious little info on how to do things with multiple physical drives. It seems to be taken for granted that the only way people multi boot is with separate partitions on a single physical drive

OpenSUSE Install :: Install Error - Config Defaults For GNOME For GNOME Power Manager Have Not Been Installed Correctly

Mar 4, 2010

Things were running fine until GNOME misbehaved;

GNOME failed to load telling me:

Install error, Configuration defaults for GNOME power manager have not been installed correctly.

So I

Code:

To the shell and check the logs in gdm and find this:

Could not ask power manager if user can suspend, launch helper exited with unknown return code 0.

So I try

Code:

To see if another user will get the desktop; I get the error

So I

Code:

And get the following

I insert a usb drive to prepare for back up; Run

Code:

On the shell to get the usb device name; Then run

Code:

To mount the device.

I end up with:

Cant create lock file /etc/mtab~ 4610 No space left on device(use -n flag to override)

So, I

Code:

And see 9 partitionitions

Code:

Again to check which ones are loaded at boot up time and get

plus some other file systems mounted at boot up, but not mapping to any physical partitionition.

I try

Code:

On partition9 and get warnings because its mounted, so I chicken out and try

Code:

And run into the error:


cant create lock file /etc/mtab~4832 no space left on device (use -n flag to override)

Good thing is there is a

Code:

Since space is a problem, I

Code:

On partition6 which is not mounted at boot up time and try to

Code:

I still get the error

cant create lock file /etc/mtab~4735 no space left on device (use -n flag to override

Fedora :: Error Gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 When Choose A Minimal Install Then Add ONLY The Defaults Of The "GNOME Desktop" Package

May 3, 2011

I noticed that in Fedora 15 Beta when you choose a minimal install then add ONLY the defaults of the "GNOME Desktop" package, you will get this error: gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 has a required package:

system-backgrounds-gnome

When I look for gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 it is not on any installation menu list. I prefer gnome, but installed KDE and that worked. Any ideas of getting gnome to work?

Fedora :: Gnome Shell - Change Defaults?

Jun 3, 2010

I feel like this is a RTFM question, so if anyone wants to just direct me to the right manual, that's fine.

I just installed gnome-shell and i cant seem to find anyway to customize anything, esp. the task bar, the clock, et cetera

is there a preferences gui or something that I cant find? I feel like i'm trying to use a mac....

It seems pretty sweet, but, i dont know how to get used to not having a window list... i dont wanna pull up the "activities window" or alt tab every time i want switch windows (esp when my hand is used to just moving to the top of the screen and clicking on the right window...

There's this autohide taskbar at the bottom of the screen, but i cant for the life of me figure out what it's for, or how to put things on it....

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome 3 Defaults To Fallback Mode

Feb 11, 2015

I recently installed Wheezy from a DVD (that was written almost a year and half ago) to my desktop. The DVD install was a minimal one, so after installation I updated the system and installed gnome. But after reboot, my gnome always falls back to gnome-classic.

Code: Select all$ gnome-shell --version
GNOME Shell 3.4.2
$ cat /etc/issue
Debian GNU/Linux 7
l

May be some firmware is missing, so I installed firmware-linux, firmware-linux-free, firmware-linux-nonfree, firmware-realtek, firmware-atheros (last two following a boot time warning). That did not solve the problem, so I just did Code: Select all$ sudo apt-get install firmware-* That also did not solve the problem.

Then I looked into my .xsession-errors file:

Code: Select all/etc/gdm3/Xsession: Beginning session setup...
localuser:somesh being added to access control list
openConnection: connect: No such file or directory
cannot connect to brltty at :0
gnome-session-is-accelerated: No hardware 3D support.

[code]...

I also installed "libgl1-mesa-dri-experimental" from another post I found in this forum.But gnome still falls back to gnome-classic.My hardware is: Core i5-4440, Intel onboard graphics, realtek audio and network.

Fedora :: Gnome-power-manager Configuration Defaults Not Installed Properly?

Nov 19, 2009

My monitor kept powering down after 20 minutes so I installed Gnome-power-manager by yum so that I could change the settings. After the installation and every time I try to use it I get a message saying:

Quote:

Install problem!

The configuration defaults for Gnome Power Manager have not installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator

I'm now unable to effect a change in the power settings and the display keeps turning off.

1) Is someone able to post their config file from a working F12 install? I believe it's /etc/dbus-1/system.d/gnome-power-manager.conf but not certain as I don't have one ;-)

2) ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-power-manager/%gconf.xml is empty - is it empty for someone with a working install?

3) how I can change the power settings without the gui - I'm googling on this point and will post the answer as and when I find it.

Code:
[ecvej@desktop ~]$ uname -r
2.6.31.5-127.fc12.x86_64
Edit: In case it is relevant, this is the contents of my /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.system/%gconf-tree.xml

Ubuntu :: The Configuration Defaults For Gnome Power Manager Have Not Been Installed Correctly

Oct 10, 2010

I was using simple backup config to backup home to an external drive and it was working fine for the past week or so and today after the backup the computer was restarted and I am unable to log on. I get an error message saying. "the configuration defaults for gnome power manager have not been installed correctly "

I did some googling and the problem is that / is full. I have been trying for the past three hours to delete some space on / so that I can log on. I used ctr-alt-f1 and I can log on there but whatever command I use to delete the root trash it fails. I get an error message saying /root/.local/share/Trash/files/ is not a file or directory.

delete root trash so I can log onto this computer. I have used every variant of sudo rm -r /root/.local/share/Trash/files/ that I could find including one using Chmod. I have already tried the commands found in this tutorial [URL]

I also reinstalled gnome but that did nothing.

Slackware :: System Wide Application/filetype Defaults?

Sep 8, 2010

I have been searching around into /etc/xdg/ and ~/.config and also /skel/.config (for newly created users!) so I can ensure specific applications open filetypes by default.

I would prefer to be able to use a system wide configuration so that i may be able to run a script with each new slackware release that would change application/filetype defaults for all users including existing to our liking (unless they have already preset their own app/defaults in ~/.config).

Fedora :: Gnome-screensaver Not Activating

Dec 11, 2010

I'm running Fedora 12 and the last couple days I have noticed my screensaver will not start anymore. I did a yum update a few days ago don't know if there is a connection between the two. I've just started to Google the topic. Found different culprits ranging from dbus problems to buggy code.

I'm using a x86_64 PC running kernel 2.6.32.23-170.fc12.x86_64. My Gnome version is 2.28.2. The Gnome-screensaver version is 2.28.3-1.fc12.x86_64.

Ubuntu :: Removing Gnome Screensaver

Mar 12, 2011

The Gnome Screensaver preferences window is freezing my desktop. I went into synaptic and tried to remove it (to use xscreensaver instead). But synaptic, in removing gnome-screensaver package, wanted to ADD a bunch of packages, lots of KDE stuff (which I don't want). Is there any way around this? If not, is there a way to reset the gnome-screensaver config file (whatever it is) so that it doesn't freeze on startup? This problem arose after I selected a particular screensaver in the gui window.

Ubuntu :: Replace Gnome-screensaver With Xscreensaver?

May 12, 2010

Although xscreensaver is much better and liked by many users, the Ubuntu devs replaced it with gnome-screensaver simply cause -

1) It's integrates better with the gnome-desktop.
2) It follows release cycles of Gnome.

Since the devs and admins won't listen, we users have to clean their **** up and this is the howto - In Ubuntu, the gnome-screensaver is running; but xscreensaver is better, so we need to replace it. The gnome-screensaver runs as a daemon...removing this gnome-screensaver package will remove this executable also -

Ubuntu :: Gnome Screensaver Security Vulnerability?

Ubuntu :: Gnome Screensaver Locks Up Display

Dec 25, 2010

Specifications:
Dell PoweEdge 1600SC
ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro 256MB PCI graphics adaptor
Ubuntu 9.10 "Karmic Koala"
Linux 2.6.31-22-generic #69-Ubuntu SMP Wed Nov 24 08:51:08 UTC 2010 i686
ATI fglrx drivers
Set up for dual-head display using two Princeton 19" monitors
Using the Gnome desktop and screensaver

At some point, I suspect since the last kernel upgrade, I've begun experiencing a problem when the screen locks: I tap a key on the keyboard and the monitors wake up, but I get no "unlock" dialog. I can usually Ctrl-Alt-F1, login and gracefully reboot the system, but sometimes I have to hit hard reset. For now I've disabled the screensaver in "System -> Preferences -> screensaver" (I assume that'll stop the problem), but that's not an optimal solution.
