General :: Make GNOME Desktop Auto Recognize The NTFS Partition Of The USB Drive

Jan 27, 2010

How to make my GNOME desktop auto recognize the NTFS partition of the USB drive.

On command line I can do the following perfectly:


which results


All files permission on the drive is 777. I can read, I can write, do whatever I want.

But in GNOME Desktop environment, when the USB drive is plugged-in, the partition is auto-mounted with other options:


All files permission on the drive is now 555. I can't write to it anymore. I saw a post earlier having similar mount result, but this one is USB drive though.

So how to configure GDE mount automatically with my intended mount options?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Make Gnome-mplayer Recognize Commands Like "{a6}" Inside Srt Files On 11.3 - GNOME 2.30.2

Jan 10, 2011

I use gnome-mplayer 1.0.0 and Totem Movie Player 2.30.2 to view videos Both read subtitles well from srt files. But both are not able to read {a6} command in the srt files.

NOTE:- {a6} command serves the purpose of putting the subtitles on top of the screen, making it possible for subbers to display lyrics/additional footnotes on top, while at the same time, having the dialogues to show in their usual position.

Is there are way to force either of them to read the special commands properly?

OpenSUSE :: Use 'make' Command Gnome On OS11.3?

Oct 21, 2010

At the moment 'make' returns this:

./kernelversion.c:13:30: fatal error: linux/utsrelease.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated. *** Cannot detect kernel version - please check compiler and KERNELPATH. Stop.

I would do a little more homework, but I already did a lot only to get stuck here, and I need to solve this sooner rather than later.

I have already: installed devel and desktop-devel and given up about 350mb of diskspace to

zypper in -t pattern devel_C_C++

Only to still not have the make function available.
If that install was unecessary, I'm hoping there's a simple uninstall version of that line.

Reading what it's saying, it sounds like I may have all the right kit but it needs a nudge in the direction of the kernel??

OpenSUSE :: No Gnome Desktop After Upgrade From 10.1 To 11.3

Jan 6, 2011

After upgrading the distribution from 10.1 to 11.3 I was not able to start the GNome-Desktop. The first error message I received was "maximum number of x display failures reached". I figured out that there was a problem with the ATI Display driver. I guess I fixed this one now, since I do get a Login-Screen.

But after login, I only have a completely empty Desktop (no Icons, no Taskbar, etc.). Also Keyboard-Shortcuts don't work. I tried it with different user-logins, but always the same result. Then I found information regarding gconftool-2 and the recursive -unset switch. Tried this one for /apps/panel and /apps/nautilus. But still no Desktop. Below is some information from .xsession-errors, which I don't know how to resolve.

OpenSUSE :: Installing Fonts In Gnome Desktop?

Feb 18, 2010

opensuse v11.2 The Gnome help describes how to install fonts: copy the font files to </usr/share/fonts>. I have some Type1 fonts with PFB, PFM, AFM and sometimes INF face files. The only ones I see in the <Type1> directory are AFM and PFA. Which font files does Gnome actually require? Is a PFA needed? Are the font files moved/deleted from </usr/share/fonts/> after installation? Is there a more obvious way to install fonts in Gnome?

OpenSUSE :: Open Kde Or Gnome Desktop In A X Server?

Apr 27, 2011

What I try is to execute Linux programs from Windows. What I do:

- I run an X Sever in Windows (Xmin).
- I connect to Linux server using putty.
- Stablish DISPLAY to Windows X Server.
- Run Linux application.

Really, what I do for simplifying the work is create, in a shared folder, Windows direct access to do this work. Ex: I create a link called "tora - Run Oracle Administration Tool.lnk".

When users want to run Tora in Windows, they don't have to install it. Just press the link and it runs a .cmd which does the previous operations. So users can run konsole, LibreOffice, tora, ... and all Linux programs as if they where installed in Windows Clients. And as the Linux and Windows computers are joined to Active Directory, each users access has its own configuration for each program.

Thus, they can try this programs without having to install them.

So as I can run all Linux programs... Why not allowing to run a remote desktop (I know I can do it with Vnc, Xrdp, NX, ...) If user run "konsole", a Linux konsole is open in Windows client. And then he can open X programs (I don't create links for all Linux programs, so the can run the konsole link and run any program). After displaying konsole, if I type "konqueror", konqueror is opened in Windows client.

If type kdesktop, desktop of kde is open, but the menu bar, tool bar doesn't appear...

Here is an image: [URL]

I detail it:

- My client is a Windows 7.
- Open a konsole in a remote linux (titled shell-konsole)
- Run kdesktop command.
- A new window titled "KDE Desktop" is opened.

But no menu or application bar is opened. An it doesn't takes my configuration (my configuration is Spanish).

How can I add menu and application bar to that desktop?

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Access Gnome Desktop On 11.2

Jan 19, 2010

I am trying to install openSUSE 11.2 with Gnome desktop from the DVD in February's Linux Magazine which I hope guarantees a good disk. However both the live DVD and a trial full installation load to a green screen without taskbar or icons meaning I cannot run any applications or even close down. The live KDE version runs OK but I wanted Gnome because I have had problems backing up Kmail in the past. I have run version 10.3 with Gnome successfully on this computer previously.

OpenSUSE Install :: GNOME Desktop Won't Load On 11.2

Dec 22, 2010

I am trying to get OpenSUSE 11.2 working. Everytime I install it, it installs with errors but when the user I setup auto logs in to the GNOME desktop, the desktop never loads. I can get into failsafe mode sometimes. I've replaced the harddrive and installed it again = same issue. I've redownloaded and burned a different DVD, verifying the checksum, and running the "check media" option = same issue. I've done a repair install = same issue. I've removed the added Ethernet and modem cards and reinstalled = same issue. I've deleted all partitions from previous install and reinstalled = same issue. Currently, I just defraged the HDD on a windows machine and am running the install once more (one a completely different machine) but what's going on here? I need 11.2 for Clonezilla SE (not 11.3)

OpenSUSE Install :: Dual Desktop: KDE And Gnome

Aug 16, 2011

I`m running openSUSE Tumbleweed with KDE 4.7.0 and i want to install Gnome3 as a second desktop option at login menu, for me to explore and learn. I know the Gnome 3 repo is this Index of /repositories/GNOME:/STABLE: 3.0/openSUSE_11.4 and the app`s repo exists as well Index of /repositories/GNOME: Apps/openSUSE_11.4+GNOME_STABLE_3.0 I don`t use network manager for my internet connection because i own a router and i use ifup with dhcp4. To install it i just add the repo`s and run zypper dup ? or are there any other settings to adjust so i don`t end up with a broken system(regarding to the kdm service that starts KDE, i suspect that a gdm daemon will be created as well...) ?

OpenSUSE :: Gnome Remote Desktop - Vino Asking For Password

Jan 23, 2009

I'm trying to use Gnome's built in remote desktop viewer, Vino, to remote to my PC. When I use the vnc client on another computer to get to my OpenSuse 11.1 box, it lets me type in a password and pauses. If I look at the screen on my OpenSuse box it is waiting for the gnome keyring password and it wanting it for vino-preferences. It specifically says: The application gnome remote desktop (/usr/bin/vino-preferences) wants access to the default keyring but it is locked.

Does anybody know how to bypass needing the password for this? I'm not sure how to begin to figure this out. I've been a longtime Fedora user and vino worked fine there so I don't think this is the way it is supposed to work.

Jun 19, 2011

I have lost some icons from my desktop, they are, firefox, yast, thunderbird, emacs, the space and the names are still there, and when I hover the mouse over the space, it is highlighted as it should be.

I tried uninstalling and installing the app, no differenence. I tried changing themes and icons from Tweak Tool, no difference. As far as I can see the icons are there in the hicolor directory
