so I installed openSUSE 11.3 KDE and fooled around with it and the Plasma Netbook Workspaces and am now back with the regular KDE. Unfortunately something I have done has now caused me to not be able to do simple tings like change the wallpaper, or add Widgets to the desktop. Everything seems to "technically" work, so I suspect that it was a configuration somewhere that I messed up.
Is there a directory or directories I can delete and then log out and back in which will create the environment with default settings? I've done this with Gnome and Xfce when I've really messed it up and it has fixed things a number of times, but I am not sure where KDE stores their config files. I believe is it openSUSE 11.3 with the KDE version that came with it and it was installed from a LiveCD.
[URL] my desktop accidently become like this: Screenshot-1.png i can't find the favourites, internet, system, etc to start the application...what should i do to return the desktop with default setting..
I was playing with kde, system tray and widgets. Now all system tray is gone, even if I add it I can not change its size etc. Also my other visual features have changed accidently as well. Plus I can not retrieve workspace icon (4 small windows). I want to return kde to its default setting, like first time.Dist is Slackware 13.0 64bit and Kde 4.0
I need the command for returning my ubuntu netbook remix (newest version) to default settings. The problem is that when I installed a theme, the next time I booted the OS the screen starts blinking and when I enter my admin password, no icons appear. My laptop is Dell 1525.
In my .bashrc I have the following lines to turn on colors for grep and ls alias ls='ls --color=auto'export GREP_OPTIONS='--color=auto'.I've tried changing the alias to export LS_OPTIONS='--color=auto' but that doesn't work.Is there anyway to use an export instead of alias. And are there actually any benefits to one way over the other?
Client which uses an ISP with a Linux machine (Server 1) with two network cards. Eth0 with ip 188.8.131.52 and gateway 184.108.40.206 these ip's is not public ip's and falls unders the isp's internal range, eth1 with the internal ip range. OpenVPN listen on eth0 for incoming connections. We want to connect to Server1 from external networks. Due to different reasons the isp could not get the routing sorted and give us an public ip on his network. We had to setup another bos (Server2) with eth0 220.127.116.11 and gateway 18.104.22.168 which is public ip's and eth1 with ip 22.214.171.124. Server 2 can communicate via the ISP internal network with server 1. I use DNAT to forward all incoming connections on server 2 to server 1 but the problem I have is that server uses its default gateway for the return packages and does not sent the reply back to server 2. My iptables rules looks as follows on server 2.
I was playing with a theme (Atolm-GS) and followed the install instructions which stated to back up the /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme directory, and replace it with the one from the theme. I did this, logged off, logged on, got my wallpaper for a second, then the Oh No Screen. I logged off, logged in to IceWM, replaced the theme folder with the original, logged back in to Gnome3 and same thing. Alt+F4 does not get rid of the OH No screen. My ~/.xsessions-errors file contains the following:
/etc/X11/xim: Checking whether an input method should be started. sourcing /etc/sysconfig/language to get the value of INPUT_METHOD INPUT_METHOD is not set or empty (no user selected input method). Trying to start a default input method for the locale en_US.UTF-8. There is no default input method for the current locale. Dummy input method "none" (do not use any fancy input method by default)
This is a new, two days since release 11.2 install on a freshly formatted drive. I lost the KDE 4.3 default semitransparent Desktop Window with all the desktop folders. I believe what happened was when the mouse went across this window, the window side pop out with the X at the bottom appeared, the mouse pointer continued onto the "old style" desktop far away from this pop out and I clicked on blank "old style" desktop. This window appears to have treated this as selecting the X in the pop out, which I probably went over without clicking on my way past it and this window is gone. I have changed to "folder view" since I can't figure out how to restore this window for the "default desktop view".
How do you restore the semitransparent default Desktop Window when its no longer in its own "view"? The jury is still out on the obviously improved, but still not ready for prime-time KDE 4.3. I feel like a Microsoft OS user being forced into using a "new" burdensome/buggy interface I don't want or need at all. Even the KDE 4.3 manual admits some things (only some?) will not work as expected. The KDE 3.5 interface did everything I "needed" quickly and without problems. I've already had enough abuse from MS, please stop emulating them.
I've had a go with a netbook and 11.2. Installed ok and X configured KDE desktop with default 1024x600.
Minor. Most apps on running fit between top and panel but then you run their menu item like 'settings' or 'prefs' and its window size is coming up >600 in height. Some allow a scrollbar on the right but for those not, the result is not seeing the 'ok, apply, cancel' buttons. I did find that changing certain font sizes under System Settings both up and down and re-logging in sorted that for most.
If you click the top-left icon on a window you get to the special window settings and can see and change the geometry. However, for some that didn't respond to the font change above and seem to be hardcoded geometry-wise for a 1024x768 minimum, the result is a "squashed" window. Certain button options seen in the normal window are not there or the items are overlayed on each other.
Specific is Okteta the hex editor.Major. I don't use a wheelscroll mouse on other pcs. This netbook has a trackpad with the rightside 7mm or so having a scroll facility. In editor or Firefox running a fingertip on it will scroll the pages which is nice instead of looking and clicking in the scrollbar.
What is NOT nice, I found, is that if the cursor arrow is over a desktop patch and my finger hits that 7mm part of the trackpad when I want to move the arrow, it results in switching between desktops. I wondered what the hell happened when the apps and console I had up disappeared then reappeared then.OK this is the wonderful KDE4 where you can do anything and customise as you like. Well no, not about this. Funnily enough it shows up in the KDE handbook help about being an option in the desktop numbers section but of course isn't there. A fallback entry from previous help version it seems.
I've seen, and have some to make of, the general KDE4 crits but this one's a real WTF. So desk users with a wheelmouse doing some critical reading of some file or webpage could have that rudely interrupted just because their hand moves inadvertently? OK, maybe I should direct at KDE people, but is this fixable in the supplied 11.2 KDE4 or later KDE4.x ?
Is there a description of the features and differences between the Desktop and Default kernels? Did "Desktop" arrive with 11.2 and 2.6.31? I did not notice it at first. I loaded 11.2 on a desktop machine and both default and desktop kernels were loaded to system, with Desktop set as default in grub. I have been working thru several "strange" behaviors ever since loading 11.2. At the top of my list has been the ability to shutdown the system from remote logins. I normally connect to the system via a Xwindows package (Xmanager). X works fine and I could shutdown via the GUI (Application Launcher - Leave-Shutdown).
When connected via a remote ssh link, either from a windows machine or a different linux machine, attempts to shutdown (shutdown -H now) send the expected messages, close the remote connections but leave the system still powered on but in a no-remote-connectivity state. When I upgraded to KDE 4.3.4 following the Forum Repository guidelines, I could no longer shutdown via the GUI. In searching about, I found that the Desktop kernel was running. Changed grub, rebooted under default, shutdown under GUI works again. So, for starters, I am trying to decide which kernel environment (default or desktop) should be my target for continuing to work thru issues.
Now I've got debug, default, desktop, ec2, trace, vanilla, xen installed im my system. I usually only boot with desktop, and I was wondering if it is OK to remove other stuff except debug, default, and desktop.
I am using OS 11.0 Every time I boot my laptop (dell inspiron 9300 - ati video M300). I get the desktop display as 1920 X 1200. This is too large for my default. I use KRandRTray to resize back to 1024 X 768. How can I set 1024 X 768 as the default but still have the option to go to 1920 X 1200?
I think I made one tweak too far and as a result have lost my desktop - no top panel, launcher just a blank screen with my desktop background. I've created a new user and everything is fine under that account so I don't think it is terminal. which files I should delete/replace to restore the desktop back to it's default settings? I've deleted the .gnome2, .gconf and .gconfd folders but that has not solved the problem.
An ubuntu-11.04 laptop is set to turn on the screensaver after 5 minutes of inactivity, and power management is set to blank the display after 15 minutes of inactivity. When the screen goes blank, you're supposed to be able to move the mouse to return to your Gnome desktop. This works sometimes, sometimes not. When it doesn't, moving the mouse doesn't eliminate the black screen, although I can see the mouse cursor. ctrl+alt+del does nothing, neither do alt+tab, alt+esc or ctrl+alt+esc. ctrl+alt+f1-12 work as they usually do, so I can "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart" from one of the TTYs, or via ssh.
I tested just now with setting the screensaver and power management display blanking to 1 minutes. After a minute the screen went blank (backlight on), and then after a second or two black (backlight off), and moving the mouse returned to Gnome as it should. So I don't know why sometimes it doesn't. Two questions:
1- Which program can I run, or which service can I restart, to return to Gnome without having to kill gdm and lose all open windows?
I just installed Ubuntu Server, I'd like to try out other desktops interfaces.When I originally tried out (wubi test drive) Ubuntu Desktop 10.10 the default desktop interface was very nice and clean...plus it seemed to render screen fonts very well I currently have Kubuntu Plasma interface installed.Can I use that Ubuntu Desktop on Ubuntu Server?If so, how would I go about installing it?
I have my Unity desktop just how I like it, but sometimes I like to log in to the Gnome (Ubuntu Classic) desktop. However, I was playing around with CCSM while in Gnome and I've totally messed it up, I have the Gnome panels and also the Unity launcher, it's a total mess. Is there a way to reset my Gnome desktop to default without affecting my Unity desktop?
I've been trying to get multiple monitors going on my laptop (thru the HDMI port) and did fairly well, but the ribbon/panel/whatever (at the bottom of the screen with launcher, etc.) is now gone and I can't find it (even with zoom-out). At first it was only gone when I disconnected the external monitor, but was present when both monitors were attached. Now it's always gone. Is there a magic reset-the-desktop to default (without reinstall) command?

differences between Kernel Default and Kernel Desktop? I've found some past threads like this link and this other link, and some other google info, which suggest the only difference would be the io scheduler. Also, I see the default grub choice is "Desktop" and not "Default", so I take this as a suggestion to prefer one over the other.
However, my broadcom 4312 wireless only works on the "default" and not on the "desktop" kernel, so I guess there must be other differences. I just want to evaluate which one is the less long-term risk option to go.
When I put the machine to sleep (suspend to ram) with Ktorrent running and then wake the machine up again, the torrents that were working do resume. But they resume in a very poor fashion, continually going into and out of "stalled" status. This bad connectivity continues indefinitely.
I have to kill Ktorrent and restart it to get good data flow back for the torrents that are running. Is there an explanation for this? And is there something I can do to make the torrents resume nicely when I bring the machine back from sleep?
I delete by accident some of the icons in my panel and i would like to have them as default. I don't know how to put them back i went to the panel and click add to panel, but the chat option does not appear how can i do that?
I would like to have the desktop as the first picture not the same background but the same icons on the top right corner. And also I am going to put an image of my desktop so you could see my desktop.
