the theme that i am using is dark and when i have application minimized and need attention like aconversation window or something and someone send something to me it blink in a gray color which is not easy to notice and i was thinking to change that to a bright orange or something... so is that possible to do without changing the theme?
Does anyone know of any Open Source apps that can be used to identify a color being used? I'm building a new site for a client and in their logo is a color that I can't seem to match to any html code. Someone mentioned a tool for Windows that would do this but since I haven't touched Windows in more than 10 years.
I use Gnome as my default desktop but have KDE3 installed to run KDE software on Gnome. Because Suse-users are mostly KDE users I checked the KDE to see why. I noticed good reasons to stick to Gnome but also noticed I cannot shutdown, restart or suspend from the KDE, there are no buttons on the menu for this, I can only change user and use Gnome to shutdown, restart or suspend. I checked my laptop and noticed the same problem. Both computers have installed suse 11.1 Gnome2.24 and KDE3. (one user) default How can I add a shutdownmenu? I cannot find other users with this problem on the forum.
I'm running openSuSe 11.3 and KDE4.5, but the only version of KDirStat that I can find in the repos is dependent on the KDE3 libs. Is there a version available for KDE4.5? Or maybe something else equally as good (apart from running WinDirStat under Wine)
I've recently installed openSuse 11.4 64bit with KDE 4.6 and that's when the trouble started. If I put a data or mp3 cd in the drive it can be mounted. Simple audio cds refuse to mount, giving me only the option to play on one of the audio players. Since I wanted to move some music to the computer I've had to resort to windows to copy files then transfer them. How can I force KDE/Suse to behave the way I want or do I have to revert to an earlier version with KDE3.5? I suspected that System Settings/Removable Devices was where I needed to be but nothing I did worked. So then I tried playing with System Settings/Device Actions and again nothing seemed to work. I can't mount the CD manually,I get this (using su -c "mount etc"
I used KDE3 with 11.0 with some KDE4 apps till I needed some applications from the KDE4 factory tree and mistakenly left the repository active. Next time the online update also updated most of the applications I would rather keep, and as a result the KDE3 disappeared from the KDM login choices. So I have two questions:1. how to enable users to select KDE3 at login (currently I have to select failsafe mode and run startkde manually)2. how to replay back an update I didn't want to have?
Perhaps a combination of the above: can I upgrade to OS11.2 and keep KDE3? (please don't tell me to switch to KDE4, I acknowledge and appreciate the effort and the improvements that KDE4 got, but it's still not a replacement for KDE3 - there are so many simple things which are impossible in the new version)
I keep forgetting to change the font color to black in OpenOffice.org in Lucid. This is a pain when printing, but the bigger problem is with writing up formulae. How do you change colors in Math (or make it default to black)?
So I've been messing around with the opacity settings in ccsm and I can't figure out how to make the drop menu color completely transparent.. I can adjust the opacity in ccsm, but that also changes the opacity of the tekst, and that's not so good..
rencently, i move develop env from one linux machine to another, two linux have same gcc and make version, but at new linux machine make warning/error messages dont show color font.so, when make, there are all white messages, i cant focus on warning and error.

Just for the fun and learning experience I am working on a minimal install with Squeeze +IceWM. The goal is to make a livecd with a set of privacy apps - like Iceweasel with Tor/privoxy and some encryption tools. Everything is working out just fine, but I thought it would be very nice to have an installer. I read about the refractainstaller and refractasnapshot in this post, and thought they sound like a good solution: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=54635#p315738 However, the links seem to be dead and so were all the mirrors I tried. Does anyone know where these files can be found or any other easy way I can make Debian installable from a livecd?
I'm working in Debian, and I've noticed that when I resize my PuTTY window, the console inside isn't resizing to the new dimentions, so things like nano are running at 80xwhatever instead of the more useful 130xsomething that I've offered it.
I am using the screen app, and have set bce to on, and issued the following commands to set my background and foreground color: tput setab 4; clear; tput setaf 7; clear;
This temporarily sets everything properly on my screen. However, when I issue any commands that change or set their own background color (for example, when I issue an "ls" command with colorized output), the background color gets lost for any new output and I have to reissue the commands listed above in order to retrieve my background color.Ideally I'd like to keep my background color when issuing these commands, as it serves as a good way to remind me of what environment I am currently issuing commands in.
I would like to see when installing ubuntu a choice for users to choose what they want installed on their system or not. I know for a fact that there are some like myself that does not want mono runtime files or mono apps on their linux box and when we try to uninstall all the files or apps that link with mono ends up breaking the linux box.
My question is why can't ubuntu make a distro of ubuntu that offers to users the files and apps for use with mono and a choice for those users to install ubuntu with out the mono files or apps. There are somne of us that think mono is as bad as .net and some of us want a linux box that runs linux and not window files or apps unless they can be written as pure linux code and not C# crap. I feel that C or C++ is the real way to write linux code and anything written in C# is windows and always will be windows. If they want to put more windows stuff on ubuntu, then they shouldn't be calling it linux..
I recently installed opensuse 11.4 on a remote server. It has GNOME installed as a desktop. The problem I am experiencing is that when logged in through VNC, most of the GUI apps are not functioning, especially ones that require root privs. Example: The Add/Create users context does not function. After you supply root pw, nothing happens. If you launch it from a terminal, you see this:
jjmuw@g01:~> xdg-su -c /sbin/yast2 users Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display "::1:1.0". No protocol specified No protocol specified
(y2base:4872): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: ::1:1.0
Followed by a hang. This is also affecting things like the Xen configuration contexts (creating/managing VMs).
Does anybody here use the color theme plugin with GNU emacs? I put the files (color-theme.el and the themes folder) in my load path and everything appears to work, but many of the themes don't display correctly.
On those that fail, only the portions of the buffer which actually contain text are themed, the rest is just plain white. This is particularly noticeable when using a dark background, as I tend to do. If this isn't a good enough description, I can attach a picture.
Just as an example: charcoal-black works perfectly while dark-laptop fails as described.
This problem seems to be unique to openSUSE as the plugin works okay on the Red Hat machines I use at school.
I'm just curious as to where I can find an Eye Dropper plasmoid for my KDE 4.4 Desktop. I'm pretty sure I had one installed and working a few weeks ago before I reinstalled, but I can't seem to find one anywhere.
So, do any of you have a link or anything to where I can find an Eye Dropper / Color Chooser plasmoid? It doesn't actually have to be a plasmoid, I just need one that isn't tied to a specific application.
1. Identify what my current color depth setting are? (default opensuse 11.4 KDE install)
2. How do I change it? Am assuming it is set to 32bit now, would like to set it to 24.
The reason is my little netbook really burns up when i play a video.. acer aspire one and one of the reason why I installed linux over windows 7 was that I wanted my laptop to run faster ... apart from the fact that I would have installed suse anyways!!
I'm having an issue with opensuse not properly booting into the desktop. I'll try to give as many details as I can. First my system:Macbook Pro 5.5 (Summer 2009). This is an intel core 2 duo, 4 GB of ram and a geforce 9400M.I prepared the computer by using bootcamp to resize my hard disk (640GB WDC) and add a partition. I booted into the installer without any issues, apart from having no mouse support. I deleted the partition boot camp had created and added 3 partitions, 1 root parition, 1 home partition and swap. The rest of the installation process went well and I was soon greeted by the opensuse gnome desktop.
I proceeded to install the wireless drivers for my broadcom BCM4322. I tried both from source and from the Packman repository, and it seemed like it didn't work. This was because I could not remove the ssb module for the kernel due to it being used by ohci_hcd (I believe). I wrote a simple script that would unload those modules, load the "wl" module, and then load the other modules. This worked, and I had wireless.I proceeded to install the Nvidia proprietary drivers, making sure to set the proper options for the bootloader and kernel. This also worked.
After installing a bunch of other software (eagle, notify-osd, grooveshark, vmware workstation), I was able to use my system without any problems until last night. At that point I updated my system after a prompt for updates by opensuse, and now I can't boot into the desktop anymore.At the point when gdm/Xorg is started, where I would regularly see the nvidia logo. Now all I get is a series of colored screens. These cycle from black, to white, to red, green, blue. I also get a bunch of grayscale gradients. However, no desktop.I have attempted several things to rectify this problem, some of them with limited success:
- obviously nomodeset was set, and the nouveau driver blacklist, unless this was changed by the update - failsafe mode -> this worked, but I don't want to run in failsafe.
Some minimized apps no longer appear in the top menu and by that are no longer accessible.For example firefox with the minimize addon or Jungel Disk backup service.How can I reach apps that minimized them self and are not shown in the top menu?
I couldn't get .wmv "windows media player" files to run under linux originally, when firefox defaulted to opening them with mplayer. I changed the default to vlc player. Now they can play perfectly, but the color is all blue. Different shades of blue the other colors don't appear.
