General :: Stop The 'd' Key From Minimizing All Windows In Ubuntu 10.10 When Connected With Nomachine?

Dec 9, 2010

When I connect to my Ubuntu box from any Mac OSX 10.6 client (Snow Leopard) using Nomachine, the 'd' key minimizes all windows on my Ubuntu box. I found another post here that says the issue can be fixed by changing some settings on the Ubuntu box when connected. However, I cannot find the location of the settings indicated in that post [URL].

Does anyone know how to resolve this 'd' key problem?

Ubuntu :: Windows Disappear Instead Of Minimizing

Jun 4, 2010

I'm running Kubuntu, updated to 10.04. After working OK, today Windows started disappearing whenever I click to minimize them. They're still running, but I have to go to System Monitor, locate the program in the list and click "Show Window." That's a nuisance.

I think this began after I tried to move panel icons to the right with an adjustable spacer. I've hunted all over the place for some setting to get windows to operate properly. The "Window Behavior" item in System Settings doesn't have anything. I removed the spacer and that didn't do anything, either.

Ubuntu :: Minimizing Windows Makes Completely Disappear

Nov 18, 2010

When I minimize windows they completely disappear. Doesn't matter if its a program or my home folder, anything I open disappears when its minimized.I can run the system monitor and check running processes and they are still running. I just cant see them. All I can do is kill them with the system monitor.I can log on as another user and they work fine. It's just in one account. Is there a way to fix this, or to completely reset my desktop to the default settings? I know it's something I did but I can't find out where to fix it.

Ubuntu Servers :: Connect Using The NoMachine Nxclient Under Windows?

Jun 8, 2010

I have a remote Lucid machine running Neatx to which I can successfully connect using the NoMachine nxclient under Windows. Using the same connection credentials under Karmic and nxclient doesn't work.

I attach screen shots of the session logs under both Windows and Karmic. They appear identical except for the 'Using shared memory parameters' field. Is this important? No authentication errors appear, so I don't think that's the problem. The Karmic session displays 'Established the display connection' and then fails after exactly one minute.

Bad enough to not be able to install Win7 which has been solved since. I broke my MBR/Windows doesnt let me reformat!

General :: Switching Between Windows Would Cause A Network Adapter To Stop Being Recognized?

Feb 15, 2011

I am using Linux and Windows 7 on the same machine and my on-board NIC is functional under both. However, the weirdest thing happens when I browse the internet under Linux and then return to Windows; my NIC stops being recognized! This happens under Windows but also in Linux when I return! This problem is then easily fixed by resetting the CMOS, but inevitably occurs again. Why does this happen? Update The CMOS reset works but is not necessary for me. Shutting down and unplugging the power cord works as well.

General :: Terminal Prompt Text Becomes Black When Connecting To Ubuntu With Nomachine NX Client?

Sep 24, 2010

I'm using Nomachine NX client for Windows to remotely connect to my Ubuntu.Every now and then I experience a strange phenomena: the text in the prompt of all open terminal windows becomes black, so it can't be viewed over the black background. Typed commands are also black, but the results are in normal colors. So I can run stuff, but can't see what I'm typing...After I close all open terminal windows and start a new terminal window, everything goes back to normal.

Ubuntu :: Stop Nautilus From Unfocusing Windows When Pressing On An Item In Another Windows And Dragging It To The First One

May 28, 2010

this might not seem a big issue but I'd really like to know whether it's possible to stop Nautilus from unfocusing windows when pressing on an item in another windows and draging it to the first one. For example, I want to move a file from one window to another. I click the middle mouse button on that item and drag it to the first one which looses it's focus so often it's quite irritating.

General :: How To Stop Files Moved - From Windows Via USB Being Marked "executable"?

Sep 27, 2010

When I move files from Windows to Linux using a USB drive, all files are marked as executable. Then double clicking on a ".txt" file gets you the ridiculous dialog box asking whether you want to display the file or execute it. (NOTE: The /etc/fstab entry for the USB mount includes the "noexec" option already and it hasn't helped.) Now that my wife and daughters are moving files back and forth between the two OSs, I'm getting pestered for a solution to this and I haven't been able to track anything down. Yet.

What can one do -- presumably on the Windows side of the transfer -- to prevent these files from being marked executable? Or is it a hopeless problem caused by some dainbread decision made by a Windows developer?

Ubuntu :: [Natty] Nasty Bugs After Minimizing / Fix It?

Apr 13, 2011

I'm on the Ubuntu Natty Narwhal and on a netbook. Hardware details are given on the signature.

Well, I'm trying to learn how to use Unity, but this bug is freaking me out. When I minimize any window, the menus are kept on the top bar 'till I click on anything else (or on the desktop), also I can't recover the window till I click on anything else (It's like it haven't been minimized, just hidden).
After restoring the window, if I try to maximize, the window borders will be maximized, but the actual window won't. I'll be attaching pictures for better understanding.
Also, if I try to un-maximize, the Close-Minimize-Maximize and the menus will be unavailable (Visible, but like they didn't exist, cant even move the window around)

If I maximize and THEN minimize, then it goes crazy. When I recover the screen, it will look ok, but if I un-maximize, there'll be a huge ugly black border around the window that follows it, no matter where I push it around.

Couldn't find anything related. I'm using the Natty Beta 1 (installed yesterday thru updates). I'm also using the latest Intel drivers (from Everything else works fine.

Hope there's a fix out there. Should I fill a bug report?

Ubuntu :: NX (nomachine) From Mac - Capture Alt-tab?

Jun 11, 2010

I'm logging into a remote Ubuntu box from my Mac via NX, and almost everything works great. However, I can't find any way to capture the alt-tab keyboard combination (or, command-tab) for app switching. All the individual keys register with ubuntu, but when pressed together, Mac OS captures it first. Is there any way to fix this?

Ubuntu :: Minimizing WINE Apps Makes Them Disappear?

Oct 22, 2010

After installing Maverick 64 bit (clean install, used to be 32 bit Lucid) any applications I run in WINE disappear when I minimize them. They don't crash, they're just impossible to reach as they're no longer in task manager, they don't show up through alt-tab but I can see them if I run ps -x from a terminal. I tried with mIRC and the client is still responding, it'll still accept files with auto-get on so it's working fine, but the UI is gone

Ubuntu :: Compiz Window Effects - Minimizing - Closing

For some reason I can't seem to get the window effects for minimizing, closing, etc. to work. I have followed a few tutorials and nothing seems to make any difference.

Ubuntu :: Minimizing Disk Access On Slow USB Flash ?

Jul 16, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 as a full install from a USB flash drive. In other words, I've installed to the flash stick just as though it were a normal hard drive. This is not a Live USB/Persistent install.

The drive is an off-the shelf 8GB Gigaware stick, and its read/write performance is pretty slow. Any time I do anything that requires disk access, it's very sluggish and tends to hang.

I'm looking for advice on things I could do to minimize the amount of disk-access made in the course of using the system, so that it will feel snappier and more responsive.

Some things I've done already:Installed 'preload', which is a daemon that monitors what programs you use frequently, and pre-loads them into RAM to reduce startup time. Mounted /tmp as a tmpfs (RAM disk) and moved my Firefox and Chrome browser caches into RAM. Set noatime for my root and home partitions.

Should I be trying to disable the filesystem journal as well? I'm less concerned with potentially burning out the flash drive with too many writes than I am with just making the system more responsive and nicer to use.

One other thing I was reading about is the so-called "Laptop Mode" that appears to be kernel settings to allow you to spin down a laptop hard drive: [url]

Obviously a flash drive doesn't spin, but it seems like some of those same techniques could be helpful here. Is there anyone who has experience running Linux in a situation with a very slow hard drive?

The computers I'm using this flash drive with all have between 2 and 8 GB of RAM, so moving more stuff into RAM is unlikely to be an issue.
