OpenSUSE :: Left Over Icons In Applications Menu After Uninstall?

Jul 6, 2011

I uninstalled Google Earth and the "grey" icon remains no matter what I do. Also I had wine to run an MS application I uninstalled wine, before uninstalling the application. The icons remain, do I need to re-install wine again, uninstall the application then uninstall wine? The file that held the application I deleted, first because I had a brain fade.

OpenSUSE :: Uninstall Some Applications, Pidgin, For Example Via 'Add/Remove Software'

Mar 24, 2010

When I tried to uninstall some applications, pidgin, for example, via 'Add/Remove Software', YaST told me that I have to uninstall another 200+ packages. Is this something normal? I'm new to Linux and don't want ruin the system, so I seek for another way.

I found that 'Software Manager' can also be used to uninstall the package, so I use it to uninstall pidgin. The problem is after I pressed 'Apply' button, there are so many package installing by themselves. I saw that most of them are appended with '-lang'.

Ubuntu :: Files Left Behind After Uninstall?

Jan 3, 2010

I'm a recent migrant to Ubuntu from windows xp, and I definitely love linux. but, after years of windoze, I'm left with a few questions. today I tried installed kde, but it didn't work on my hardware, so I uninstalled it. i also tried to put google earth on my system, but it kept crashing so I removed it. after removing kde I had to reinstall a couple programs. all said, after doing all that, do I need to scan my system to remove trash files, or is that not a problem in linux?I'm also having some problems finding software after I've installed it in synaptic. when the package shows to be installed, I can't find any way to launch it through the menus. I don't have that problem if I use the ubuntu software center.

Is there a way to clean up OpenSuse's applications menu with alacarte? It takes forever for me to find an existing menu item if I want to change or delete it, but deleting existing pre-defined groups (such as "Amusement", "Art and Culture", and "Games for Kids") doesn't work.

I installed NoScript and Allowed some pages. I clicked RESET and then uninstalled NoScript via the Firefox AdOns window. But when I "reinstall" it it still has sites from my previous browsing Allowed plus settings from my old install. How do I completely erase all its settings so that when I reinstall it it is like it is a fresh/brand new install? I used to be able to do this with CCleaner for Windows.

OpenSUSE :: Applications Launched From Gnome Menu Are Not Always Visible

Mar 26, 2011

I have a clean install of openSUSE 11.4 64 bit using gnome as the desktop manager. When selecting applications from the gnome menu, randomly the application will appear to not launch. However, if I click anywhere in left, upper portion of my desktop it becomes obvious that the application has launched and is not visible. For example, yast will not appear but clicking in that portion of my desktop causes various windows to appear that correspond to the different options in the yast home screen.

OpenSUSE :: Applications Missing From KDE Menu And File Associations Is Not Working?

Feb 17, 2011

Only "Favourites", "Run Command" and "Leave" is shown on the classic KDE menu, same thing when switching to Launcher Menu Style. Missing Applications and everything else. File associations is not working. Double clicking any type of file it asks to install the program and the known applications menu is empty.

I tried to add a new user, same problem with that. I also noticed that when running Chrome it asks to be the default web browser each time even when I say yes.

I have not been messing with anything, I suspect it happened during a update, but I got the exact same repositories on 2 other x64 machines where there is no problem.

I'm using KDE 4.6.0 from the factory repository.

I tried to reinstall some KDE4 packages without any luck.

I do not want to reinstall the entire system or downgrade KDE.

Ubuntu :: 90% Of The Applications Install - Last Release - Do Not Show Up Later On In Applications Menu

Jul 24, 2010

I feel shy asking this question but, 90% of the applications I install in Ubuntu (last release), do not show up later on in the applications menu, so I cant run them. I know it seems silly, but I can't find the way to handle this inconvenience. Is there a place (like Start> All programs in Windows), were I could find and run all the programs I install?

Ubuntu :: Toolbar - Some Icons Are Not Clickable With The Left Mouse Button

Oct 7, 2010

In my desktop toolbar on the right side where my running applications are shown etc. I have some problems:

1) After a while and after some messages have been shown and applications started, there is a growing gap which gets larger. When I move the mouse over the gap, I see tooltips belonging to the application to the right which is always a different one so I assume that it is a toolbar problem and no application problem.

2) Some icons are not clickable with the left mouse button, e.g. Rhythmbox. When I left click on it, nothing happens.

3) When I open the volume control with a left click, I cannot close it by clicking somewhere else. I always have to click on the "Mixer" Button to see a whole window and then I can close it.

Debian :: Some Of The Icons On The Desktop Changed And All Of The Icons In The Drop Down Menu On The Bar At The Top Of The Screen Also Changed?

Jun 19, 2010

I recently installed virtual box on debian and after it had finished my terminal informed me that I could remove some "unnecessary" software by use of sudo apt-get autoremove. When I did this, some of the icons on the desktop changed and all of the icons in the drop down menu on the bar at the top of the screen also changed to ordinary folder symbols. The theme that I was using also went away. I restarted the computer and it booted back into a shell prompt with no GUI. I tried to get back to the GUI using alt+f7 but it didn't seem to exist
