OpenSUSE :: 11.2 - Macros Opening Separate Buffers / Windows
Feb 8, 2010
I switched from 11.1 to 11.2 last month. I'm now having a smoother experience with openSUSE, with some exceptions.
One is Emacs.
A rather annoying "feature" that has appeared is the following: When editing a LaTeX file, compiling it (C-c C-c, using AucTeX macros) makes the Emacs window become shorter by one line. The same happens if I switch to some other buffer. It does not happen if I switch back to the LaTeX buffer. So, after just a few editing/compiling/checking errors sequences I find the original window half of its initial size...
A similar problem occurs when editing IDLWAVE scripts (it's a proprietary scientific data analysis language widely used in my field, but still has its Emacs macros), but only if I open an interactive IDL-shell to run the script.
So, I imagine it's not a problem related to AucTeX, although it might be related to the macros opening separate buffers/windows (e.g.: error messages) associated with the current buffer. Also, the problem does not go away if I remove my own .emacs customization files. Checking the Emacs bug lists, it seems that there are some bugs related to window resizing, although I have not been able to find exactly the same problem I am having. But, before reporting this one, I'd like to hear from fellow Emacs/openSUSE users. Just in case I'm messing things up somehow.
Currently using: Emacs v 23.1.1
Some more info: Dell Precision M65 portable workstation, NVIDIA Quadro FX1500 using the binary NVIDIA driver). Using OpenSuse 11.2 + KDE 4.3.1
I am trying to test a Gigabit Ethernet Tattile line scan camera. I installed the driver properly set the ip of device using utility given in the driver. when i am trying to open the live view of camera using a utility given (tag_show) it gives me error in /var/log/messages TBP ERROR: No buffers available in free buffers list When i looked into the code of utility it is doing ioctl call where it is failing with errno=12.
using Opensuse 11.3, I have used Ubuntu 9.10 in the past and have had a blast with Linux. I have to rehash some of my old skills that I have forgotten in the past several years..I installed 11.3, everything is working fine. However, I just releazed that after I installed it, I used my whole partition (Not Windows 7, or I would've been in hell). My Windows 7 is in Raid 0. My second HDD is 1 TB and 11.3 is on there. So, how can I trim down let's say 100 GB and just give the rest to Windows (800gbs). I need that much because I do editing for videos, etc. So, once again, how can I trim my partition and use it for Windows 7.
I am trying to use the 'autoconf' command and I keep getting an error message saying I need to have xorg-macros 1.3 or later. I have downloaded both 1.4 and 1.6.0 and tried to install them. Apparently all to no avail, because when I run the autoconf script it comes back as saying I only have 1.2.2 installed. Where do I start looking to figure out what I am screwing up?When I run the configure script in the util-macros-1.6.0 it seems to run right. Then I run make and it says "nothing to do for 'all'". Then I run 'make install' and it seems to run that but apparently it isn't getting installed.
Here is the output of ./configure;make;make install linux-y52a:/home/alton/Download/util-macros-1.6.0 # ./configure;make;make install checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
I have a multi-head system (three monitors). Using KDE 3.6 I was able to specify that new windows were to open on the monitor on which the mouse cursor was located. I don't recall where the setting was configured but I can't find anything like it in 4.3. Is there somewhere I can set this option or is it no longer available?
Some windows programs won't run after I have installed them with Wine. They either won't run or they make the screen go to a black painting screen (screen goes black and you can paint over it with your mouse to make the desktop reappear). I have tried changing the windows version and made no difference. I have even tried opening it in a virtual window and made no difference (Window opens then closes)
Running a Dell XPS/Dimension 630i. It came with "SATA 2 RAID 0 With Dual 500GB Hard Drives." I have installed a new, third non-raided drive and installed Ubuntu on it.
So now I have Windows on the original hard drive and Ubuntu Linux on the new HD. When I get to the boot menu where I can select an OS, if I select windows I get an error: "No such drive, no such disk." Also, strangely in the first place, in order to even get to the bootloader menu I have had to disable ALL ports under the RAID config. Unless I do this, I will just get to a never-ending blinking cursor.
I have tried every conceivable CMOS config and nothing else works. Tried setting port 3 (the new HD w/ Ubuntu) to first hard disk boot priority. Tried disabling all other ports and enabling the Ubuntu HD port and vice versa.
I have some pictures of boot up: first one is strange error i get after messing with CMOS to finally get ubuntu install to work.
Then the boot menu:
Also, note that I can actually access all files from the raided Windows drive through Ubuntu.
Is it possible to run Fedora 14 on hard drive SDA (1st drive in computer - 1 terabyte Western Digital) and also run Windows 7 on drive SDB (2nd drive in computer - 1 terabyte Hitachi)? I have been able to run both Windows and Fedora (Fedora installed last) on SDA, but all my attempts to have the two OSs running on different drives have failed. Am I attempting the impossible or can it be done? I'm not particularly concerned which OS goes on which drive, but Fedora grub doesn't seem to be able to pick up WIN7 when it is on drive SDB.
how to do a fresh install of Ubuntu and Windows on two separate partitions? When I install windows and leave a partition for linux, the "Side by side" setup isn't what I'm looking for. Manually doing it made me a little uneasy.
I dual boot Ubuntu and Vista. I don't have a whole lot of personal files (mostly everything is on the external HDD) and so I have a spare 55GB partition sitting around with nothing on it, and an almost full Vista 60GB partition. Is it possible to use this spare partition both as a /home and as a Windows Documents partition..?
I'd need to set Ubuntu to automount it and it'd need to be in FAT32 or NTFS for Windows to recognize it but I don't see why it shouldn't work... even though I have no clue how? I'll keep on researching but I couldn't find much concrete info on the topic. I'll try different search terms meanwhile.
Basically, as the topic reads, I normally run Windows XP, and installed Ubuntu on a new HDD this week (Karmic). However, realising later that there was a new release, I just upgraded through the network, completely ignorant of their being anything wrong with this (Windows drive still being connected at this time). Now Ubuntu boots fine, but when I select Windows through the GRUB set-up, it just displays a black screen with the '_' cursor blinking and goes no further.
I have absolutely no clue how to fix this, reading through various forum posts and messing with the boot command (or whatever you call it when you push 'e' at the GRUB screen) all day to no avail. One of the things I've download was the Boot_Info_Script, so hopefully someone out there can gleam some information on how the heck I can solve this issue and boot XP once again (hopefully without having to just blow away one or both of the OS's and doing a completely clean install). If there's anything I can do to provide any further required information, My RESULTS.txt:
I recently put ubuntu on my laptop in hope that most of my games would run through wine, some did and some didn't.
Anyway, long story short, I have ubuntu on my laptop and I want to re install windows onto a separate partition, keeping my ubuntu instillation in tact and set as my deafault OS.
I'm very new to ubuntu and the only guides i've seen are fairly complex. I was just wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction? p.s. Is there maybe a way to create an image of my current ubuntu nstillation/settings/apps etc. just in case I do something wrong and lose everything?
I want to set up my PC so that I have Windows 7 installed on one hard drive and Ubuntu Studio installed on a completely separate hard drive. I currently have both hard drives installed in my PC and the larger one (640GB) has Windows 7 installed and is currently taking up that entire drive. My other hard drive (160GB) has a wubi install of Ubuntu 10.10 on it so it shows up on the Windows boot menu. What I want to do is wipe the smaller hard drive and install Ubuntu Studio on it and have it show up in the boot menu just like my wubi install does.
I need to know things like: 1. When I install Ubuntu Studio, do I install the boot loader to the MBR of the hard drive I'm installing it on? 2. How exactly do I add Ubuntu Studio to the Windows boot loader?
I've installed jEdit following instructions here [URL]... In trying to record a macro Macros > Record Macro I can see "Macro recording" message in status bar but no macro code is generated and no macro can be run. on getting macros to work in jEdit?
I finally have decided to give ubuntu a shot.Windows is becoming too familiar, and it's been forever since I have used command line since DOS.I really need some humility, and I think that Linux will teach me some.I am going to give it a whirl on a "spare" machine, dual booting with Windows 7 64 on two separate hard drives. I'm burning the ubuntu live cd x86 right now. I am going to unplug my windows drive and start the installation.
I have tried (a few times now lol) to get this setup. I am using Windows 7 64-bit and Ubuntu 10.4 64-bit. I have Windows 7 installed on one hdd, another hdd has the System Reserved partition along with a data partition for files, the third hdd is the one where I want to install Ubuntu. I have found numerous tutorials on installing them both on the same drive, but not on separate ones. The couple I have found haven't really worked.
I think that Ubuntu is installed correctly but there is no option to boot into it. Windows 7 just happily loads itself. I have tried reinstalling and selecting 'sdc1' (the native ubuntu partition) as the location for the bootloader to be installed and then used Easy BCD to add that location to the windows bootloader which gives the option to load Ubuntu but when selected dies complaining that there is a missing file (I think it just can't find the Ubuntu bootloader).
As an aside when I get to the installation screen the Ubuntu installer keeps on telling me that there are no operating systems detected on the machine (Even though I'm pretty sure the drive it is talking about 'sda' is where Windows 7 is installed). Not sure if that matters just seemed a little wierd.
I originally had my full hard drive as a full Ubuntu partition but I then re-sized that and installed Windows on a new partition. Now I guess the boot sector got overwritten and I don't have a choice to boot either Windows or Ubuntu. I know I have to reconfigure GRUB or another boot loader to allow the choice but I am not sure of how to go about that.
I am new to gnuplot linux based plotting tool. I am trying to plot data from multiple data files and I want each plot to be open in a separate window. This is not happening in gnuplot script I have written, it holds the current window and plots the next data on the same window.A way I found to see separate plots was to use multiplot, but this plots multiple plots in the same window. Can someone tell me how to plot multiple plots in separate window in gnuplot? I could not find the answer in documentation/man pages.
On standard Linux setups you have two general paste buffers, the main copy(^C)/paste(^V) one and the select-text/middle-click one. For both of these buffers:
At what level in the environment are these buffers stored/managed; the kernel, the X server, KDE/Gnome, or some other service somewhere? Can they be programmatically accessed somehow using some standard library?
I have been messing around with the ubuntu family for some time now, and usually have no problem finding my answers. This one, however, is giving me some trouble. I have been using ubuntu on my laptop for some time now, and recently got a new 2TB hard drive for my desktop. I cloned the old hard drive to the new one, and decided to install ubuntu onto a third drive. The third drive was IDE, the new one is SATA. I disconnected the other hard drive, and so my current set up is a SATA drive with Windows 7, and an IDE drive with Ubuntu (11.04 of course)
Well, I am unable to dual boot between the two, unfortunately, and would like to figure out how. I would like to say the problem is with Windows, since that is the primary drive. No GRUB shows up upon booting when both drives are plugged in, and the Windows Bootloader does not show my installation of Ubuntu, instead it goes right to Windows.
Is there any application which can fulfil keybaord macros which I set?I need something which can press DOWN, DOWN, DOWN, DOWN, SHIFT+UP, SHIFT+UP, SHIFT+UP, BACKSPACE. And then repeat that cycle for a long period of time.
