OpenSUSE Hardware :: Switching Bluetooth On / Off With Gnome Applet

Aug 11, 2010

On my ASUS Eee 1000H with openSUSE 11.3 I'd like to be able to switch bluetooth on and off with the gnome bluetooth applet. However, when I run /usr/bin/bluetooth-applet as a normal user, the applet tells me:

** (bluetooth-applet:8598): WARNING **: Could not open RFKILL control device, please verify your installation

Okay, so it doesn't have write permissions on /dev/rfkill. When (as root) I change the permissions on /dev/rfkill from crw-r--r-- to crw-rw-rw-, the applet works as expected. Until the next reboot, when the permissions for rfkill are reset to crw-r--r--. How to make the permissions stick? Or if there is a better way to allow the applet to enable and disable the bluetooth adapter?

OpenSUSE Install :: Gnome Panel Disappears When Switching To Another Workspace

Jul 16, 2010

Linux 2.6.34-12-desktop x86_64
Gnome desktop

I updated from v11.2. to v11.3.I have 4 workspaces defined. The Gnome panel shows only in the first workspace! When I switch to another one, the panel disappears. As you may imagine, this is rather inconvenient. Once I am in another workspace other than 1, my only option is to reboot since there is no way to navigate anywhere. How do I set up the Gnome panel to show in all workspaces?

OpenSUSE :: Command Line Applet Does Not Work In 11.4 (gnome)

May 19, 2011

I add a "command line" or "mini-commander" applet to the panel in gnome, but nothing happens.

If I launch "/usr/lib/mini_commander_applet" on a terminal, I get a dozen such applets, for all the times I tried, but then I have an xterm tied up.

If I launch the same from "alt-f2" it does not work, and gives no error.

OpenSUSE :: Update Applet - Su / Root Password Always Needed (GNOME)

Apr 30, 2010

I have a minor problem with my "Update Applet 2.28.0" in Gnome. It occurs when I want to make the applet do one or more suggested update(s). It always asks me for the password of superuser/root: "Authenticate : Authentication is required to update packages. [...]". I think under my installation before (11.1 maybe updated from an older version) I could tell the automatic/semi automatic updater to remember the su password (in YaST or in the authentication dialog?).

In the help manual on my computer (and in the internet) there is the possibility to make the updater remember the password via policy kit: ("Access to all privileged operations is controlled via PolicyKit." See: GNOME Documentation Library : gnome-packagekit Manual : Introduction) I could not find any policy kid or any other possibility to give to the automatic updater (or its user) that privilege permanently (=to remember authorization). I think on a system with more (real) users this could be a real problem (not just an inconvenience).

Ubuntu :: 8.10 - Cell Phone Not Seen In Bluetooth Applet

Jul 26, 2010

I am trying to connect my cell phone through a Bluetooth dongle in Ubuntu 8.10 but when I try setting up a new device my cell phone is not seen. I tried reading some guides, I installed everything needed but still it doesn't work, some files are even missing (probably because they guides are for older versions of Ubuntu but i can't find a new guide on it) like.

I tried the following commands:
jessica@jessica-desktop:~$ sudo hcitool scanScanning ...
00:16:75:15:14:81 Hill Billy
jessica@jessica-desktop:~$ sudo hidd --connect 00:16:75:15:14:81
Can't get device information: Success

I guess they work but how come my device is still not seen in the Bluetooth applet? How can I send files? Why can't I connect to the computer using my phone? I don't want to depend on windows for this too.

Fedora :: F14 Gnome-applet Dwell Click Crashes Gnome-panel / Solution For It?

Nov 12, 2010

Seeing this on two systems that went through F13-F14 upgrade.

version: gnome-applets-2.32.0-1.fc14.x86_64

symptom: via right click on a gnome panel, perform "add to panel" and choose Dwell Click.
Gnome panel bites the dust with SIGSEGV at this point, restarts, and then you've got dwell click on the panel.

Anyone else seeing this, and better yet, have a solution?

Ubuntu :: Switching From GNOME To KDE?

Nov 26, 2010

I currently run Linux Mint 9/GNOME on my main desktop but am thinking of switching to KDE. The main reason being that the file managers seem to have more to offer than anything in GNOME and the DE itself just seems to look better.

So the question is, if I switch, what issues am I likely to run into? I would like to continue using as many of the same programs as possible and I know that a lot of them are going to require GNOME dependencies and either might not run or will run slow, but I'm not very Linux savvy and don't know much beyond that.

I would like to still use Compiz, Guayadeque, and a few other programs. If I am going to loose the ability to run a lot of programs I am use to just to get the nicer file browser and DE then it's probably not worth it.

I'm pretty familiar with GNOME now so I'm looking for some advice from KDE users, especially if you started with GNOME.

Ubuntu :: Switching Between Kde And Gnome Desktop Environment?

Apr 11, 2011

I have a question about switching between desktop environments like kde and gnome. I'm using ubuntu 10.04 with gnome 2.x and with a really cool theme I found and mixed. I would like to check kde desktop because I kinda like the appearance of it. I have also cairo dock and compiz configured for my needs. my question is whether I can switch to kde desktop without losing my customized gnome environment if I decide to switch back to gnome? (I know that to switch session you need to log out but that's not the point) the next question is how can I install kde without losing the customized gnome theme I have ?( if the answer for the first question is negative)

the final question is whether I lose data when I switch desktop and if do than what specifically.

Fedora :: Nautilus Doesn't Work After Switching From KDE To GNOME

Jan 20, 2010

I recently switched my desktop environment from KDE-4.3.4 to GNOME-2.28-2 and I did that by installing most of the gnome-packages and uninstalling pretty much all of the kde-ones. After reboot everything worked fine except the file browser that doesn't seem to care about my feelings. It launches and when I try to kill the process the status changes from sleeping to uninterruptible and then back to sleeping. The only way is to reboot but that isn't a solution.Error while sending message: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

Ubuntu :: Desktop And Gnome Panels Won't Keep Still When Switching Viewports In 11.04 / Fix It?

When I switch viewports in 11.04, the gnome panels, desktop and stickied windows slide when they would stay put in 10.10. How do I change back to the previous behaviour? I'm using Ubuntu Classic (Gnome 2) and love that Compiz didn't carry over my settings during the upgrade.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Broke System By Switching To Gnome 3

May 3, 2011

Just updated my system to 11.04 and was not a fan of Unity. So I decided to switch to gnome 3. I downloaded all the packages and made the switch, only to realize I had made a HUGE mistake. While gnome 3 looks beautiful, it doesn't work at all for me. I have no internet (wired or wireless) now, and a host of other complaints.But when I try to restart Unity, the system fails. I also cannot start up Ubuntu in normal or Classic modes anymore.

General :: Lost Soundcard Recognization After Switching To KDE From Gnome?

Aug 21, 2010

I wanted to get a taste of the difference between Gnome and KDE Ubuntu so I downloaded and installed KDE. During the installation I got a pop up box telling me that KDE has determined I had some sound drivers that were not necessary and should I let the program uninstall these files. Like a total jacka$$ I said yes. After the installation was complete I had no sound. I switched back to Gnome, uninstalled KDE, and haven't had sound since. Sound is fine in my Windows 7 dual boot. I ran some commands in the terminal and found that the system isn't recognizing any soundcard.

Debian Multimedia :: Password Prompt Locks All App-switching In Gnome

May 5, 2015

I often need to login into various accounts. In Debian 7 I always was able to copy and paste passwords from text files if I was asked for an input, but now the textfield for password input locks the whole system and I can't do anything else before I have supplied the password. Is there any way of restoring the old behaviour to make password input forms (like the request for GPG key passwords in Evolution) just being an addintional app-window instead of an input request, that locks everything else? I want to be able to open the proper file with the login data when prompted for it.

I know I could theoretically solve this issue by using a general system wide main key which would supply all individual login data, but I want to memorize some often needed phrases by actually typing them when I need them. I just want the possibility to open text files for copy and paste when I'm prompted for a password if this is something I don't even want to remember.

General :: Gnome - Plug-ins To Let Me Do `<Win>`+`<Num>` Style App Switching (like Windows 7's Superbar)?

Mar 2, 2011

Using Windows 7's superbar, I can select/launch the 2nd application group by <Win>+<2>. We have DockbarX in GNOME, which is nice (grouping the windows like Windows 7), but it doesn't enable the <Win>+<2> style keybaord shortcuts.This is not restricted to making Linux like Windows. But I just find the <Win>+<2> style shortcut very useful. Are there similar ways in Linux to quickly switch between specific apps without pressing <Alt>+<Tab> many many times?

Ubuntu :: Switching To A Virtual Console While Logged Out Crashes GNOME?

If I am logged out of GNOME and switch to tty1 and back, I get a stream of errors (which I can't copy...) on a black console. If I am logged in I am fine. This is very annoying because I would like to be able to log out of GNOME while I am running particularly memory-intensive scripts (they approach the limit of my 3.8 GBs of RAM).
