I have accidentally deleted the soundmenu in the panel that comes with the new ubuntu 10.10. After going through various posts all I can see, is that the solutions provided only provide the applet for sound control and does not have any integration with any of the music players (in my case Rhythmbox).I really want that menu back as it made listening to music while using multiple desktops very easy.
I was trying to delete a menu item that I no longer needed because its referenced application was uninstalled, but I ended up deleting the "Search for Files" item under Applications > Accessories instead. I hit the revert button but no dice (go figure). Anyone know where I can get another copy of the *.desktop file, or perhaps would someone care to attach it for me?
After a disastrous foray into LDAP I restored NIS on a very simple network run by a very simple operator. Everything now works except for YaST on the NIS master. I can't manage NIS users in YaST any more. The option 'show NIS users' is now absent from the 'filter' button up in YaST "User and Group Management" So, after following the YaST route to LDAP there seems no way back...
These are OpenSUSE 11.3 boxes and the slave NIS server can't [obviously enough] delete expired NIS users on the master, although it sees them fine. Disabling or changing NIS server or client on the Master simply restores the 'wrong' settings - nothing is erased or cleaned. How do I clean up NIS controls so YaST sees it properly? or What do I need to do to restore NIS group & user control to YaST?
While screwing around with my settings trying to get 11.3 setup the way I wanted it, I accidentally removed the portion of the bottom panel which displayed the titles for all the current open windows....and I can't for the life of me figure out how to get it back.Can anyone tell me how to add it again? I'm sure its something incredible simple, but I haven't been able to find it
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.
In my YaST Network Settings (11.3), I see an entry labelled "Unknown Network Device" how to remove the confusion? The Overview tab also correctly lists my three known network devices (listed below), as does the Hardware Information utility. This is the output of lspci, and as far as I can tell, is accurate and complete. So what has YaST seen that it can't identify?
I need to know where the /usr/bin/X11 link goes to. If someone can post the ls of that directory that would be just as helpful. It is currently referring to /usr/bin/ which means its a recursive link and I do not think that is correct. A speedy response would be nice I wish to have this resolved before I need to reboot.
I have accidentally deleted the contents of sudoers file (while trying to add a line through CLI).Anyway, I'm still logged in and can please someone paste me the default contents of the sudoers file on Lucid Lynx
I've a little experience about Ubuntu. I'm using Ubuntu with Windows 7 as dual boot for 1 year. Three days ago I decided to upgrade my Ubuntu version to 10.10. I've created a live version of installer on my USB stick and I've successfully logged into live version.After some time I clicked install and accidentally I gave a command like install Ubuntu to all hard drive. Installer have given error and denied to continue but it has removed the partitioning records from hard drive. So as you guessed everything within hard drive have got unreadable everything until here is the story part. I've written in order to inform the reader.
After a few hours of searching around, I've discovered a miracle called Testdisk. Following the instructions carefully I've managed to return partitions except the System Allocated space of Windows 7 which exists on the starting 100MB of memory. But I'm able to see my files within C: drive of Windows 7Then my problem has became logging into Windows. Somehow I skip following the instructions on the website of Testdisk and I've used the command called 'Write TestDisk MBR code to first sector' so at that moment my first sector was the C: drive of Windows 7 where OS was originally installed and where my files are kept. So I cannot see the files within C: because the starting bytes set to something else and I want to undo what I've done so far.
Just like the title said, I was fooling around with different workspaces - seeing if I could close a program in one workspace while working in another - and I seem to have either deleted or hidden all of my workspaces!I've already tried the gconf commands and they don't seem to work at all.I'm running 11.04.TYOK... a quick update. I can get to my other workspaces using ctr+alt+ right arrow, so the workspaces are still there, I've just hidden or removed the switcher applet!
Not sure what I did, but the nice widget showing my desktop on my new Kubuntu install is no longer on my desktop (the widget showing a window of the current desktop contents). How can I add it back?I've looked through widgets and panels, not sure what I did
I'm a Ubuntu 10.04 user.I accidentally deleted the Help Icon that is near to the Applications/Places/System tab and I can't find a way to add it again. I tried to right click on the panel, then I clicked "Add to Panel" and tried to find that icon, but it was not there.
I have a dual boot system - vista & fedora.I was cleaning my hard disk drive, using a partition manager for windows.I moved the swap partition without much thinking about the consequences - and now I can't boot into fedora. It gives the following error mount: error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3 No such file or directory.
Im new in this world of linux and suse. I have just installed the opensuse 11.2 in a Dell Inspiron 5160. Such laptop has a BCM4306 Wireless LAN controller. When I tried to configure a wlan connection, I found that the firmware was not installed. After looking in different forums, I installed the firmware b43. Now, my wlan card is abled to find the wireless of my router.
I have tried to configure a connection with YAST as well as with Network Manager, but both cases failled. Specifically, when I use Network manager, Im able to see in the applet my connection, how strong is the signal, but I see a yellow symbol (in one forum, such a box is shown with a green symbol).
I have check many time all about the secutity, encryption, and so one and all seems to be correct. But when I open the mozila firefox or the konqueror browser, no chance to surffer in internet. Now Im just a step to become crazy. The drivers are ok, the information about the router and the keys are ok, but in such a way, I am still harmloss.
I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.8. I was recently uninstalling mysql5 from /opt/local/bin.I typed:rm -rf /opt/local/bin mysql*instead ofrm -rf /opt/local/bin/mysql*This deleted my entire /opt/local/bin directory which puts me in a bit of a bind.Is there any way to recover those files? If not, I have a friend that is using a similar set of programs, would it be possible to use the contents of his folderIf I end up needing to reinstall everything in this folder, what is the best way to go about doing this?
i accidentally deleted the shortcut for rhythmbox from sound & video.and cant restore it i don't know where the location and etc is.i tried uninstalling it properly from the software centre and synaptic manager and reinstalling it didnt restore the shortcuts.
What exactly I did here to aid in attempting to recover my Windows system. My laptop was dual Wubi-boot with Windows 7 and Ubuntu, and after encountering issues booting into my Wubi Ubuntu, I went in to recover important files to do a reinstall. Using an Ubuntu livecd, I created a directory called "win" (sudo mkdir /win) and then mounted my Windows 7 partition (sudo mount /dev/sda1 /win) to that folder name. However, after encountering some issues there, I made the mistake of removing the "win" folder without unmounting the Windows 7 partition using "rm -rf /win". After that, my Windows system appears to be missing. Can anyone tell me what exactly I did? Did I delete the partition?
I was on Windows and I accidentally deleted my Ubuntu install. Now when I boot I have Windows 7 and Ubuntu, and it's corrupt. So I went to add remove programs in Windows 7 and it just deleted the Ubuntu uninstaller (cause i deleted it) and now i'm stuck with a corrupt boot, how to remove it because I want to re install Ubuntu and it's annoying having 2 Ubuntu systems (one corrupt) and Windows 7 on my boot screen.
I had two accounts. One was an admin and I set the other as an admin as well, but left it without a password since I wanted the new user to enter it themselves. I went into the new admin account and deleted the old, passworded one.
However, this new account doesn't have a password that I explicitly defined on it. How do I change that? The account is the only one and still 'disabled'.
I am relatively new at Linux and am having some problems with an install of openSUSE 11.2. I installed 11.2 on my Thinkpad X31 dual boot with WinXP. It seems to work very well except the network. I looked up swerdna's instructions on setting network cards up. I used YaST to try and set the system up as described in swerdna's instructions. Everything looks fine my network card and wireless card show up in the overview settings screen and everything sets up fine. But when I exit YaST the network doest show up no icon in the system tray and it doesn't even try to connect.
I did go into hardware to see if it was identifying my hardware and my network card shows up as "Thinkpad R40" and the wireless shows up as Cisco Aironet Wireless 802.11b. As far as I know this is correct. I have tried three other distro's and this one has gotten the closest to working so far.
How do you mannually set up a network using Yast/ifup? I'm trying to get my wireless running on a Broadcom 1390 WLAN. I've gone through the stickies in the wireless forum (this is my first stab at Linux) and have gotten the drivers installed and the internet working (albeit intermittently) using Knetwork manager. It seems that some folks that have had the same issue did not have problems setting the network up manually with Yast & ifup. I've disabled network manager in Yast, and I went through man ifup. It seems I need a "pre-configured interface," but I don't know how to make that happen.
I accidentally deleted my root ext4 partition, which I had encrypted. I am unable to log into any os since I am blocked by a Error 17. Is it possible to retrieve an encrypted ext4 partition, does it even matter that it was encrypted.
Deleted the Ubuntu partition by accident. Now at a loss as how to get Windows working again. I had all my files saved, and did a full format and reinstall to Windows. Thinking that it would just overwrite grub but this thing is like a virus.. I cant do **** at the grub rescure command prompt... it just sits there with a cursor... Even stuff like reboot and quit or exit don't even work... what the hell? So I pop my Win7 install cd in and I find that for some reason I have no recovery console... just the option to install. I install but no grub, the little virus is still there and I just wasted an hour of my life while Win7 installed again because I still cant view it.
I deleted all the partitions and wiped the entire disc and grub is still there.. I was thinking that Windows would just replace grub automatically. Heh the Bootsector always seems to get owned on Windows and I expected grub to be just as useless but in it's own way, it's worse.
I had a win7 installed on my system first. Then I installed Ubuntu and added grub2 boot option with win7 utility program EasyBSD. But then I accidently deleted win7 boot option from windows loader menu. Now I can only chose to load Ubuntu. How can I restore Win7 loading option? I have Win7 option in grub2 but it returns me to the previous screen, from which I have deleted win7.
