Anybody knows how to fix overlapping tasks in KDE system taskbar?Here System Monitor overlaps with digiKamWorkaround to rearrange icons - start any new task.Sorry for taking real photo of the screen. When I do PrintScreen KSnapShot task appears in the list and makes all task to rearrange. The resulting screenshot contains already fixed view.
I tried googling but couldnt find the task manager equivalent? Just want to find out how much memory LINUX uses in general as I have been using it for few days and everything seems faster than on vista with no programs freezing! Also on my taskbar, when I click on the time to change it, it doesn't work? I think the timezone is set to US or something but how do i change the timezone?
After upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04 all of a sudden, the task manager or task bar, keeps changing length. The individual window "buttons" themselves keep changing size - flashing even, and the space between them also changes. It is driving me nuts! The little system tray(?) icons no longer appear in the system tray, but all stacked on top of each other in the top left corner.
I am using Suse 11.2 with KDE4.3. Unfortunately i deleted the Task Manager on footer by uclicking the "Remove this Task Manager". But i am unable to get it back. It looks really weierd to see monitor withiut that. Formated the PC to get back that task manager.
I just installed SUSE 11.3 on my PC and used KDE desktop. But the default color and style of the task manager bar looks not so good to me. It's a back and gray bar. How to change its color and style? Should I install something else or just do some settings? I look through the system setting but can not find a way. Could you kindly please tell me how to do that?
I'm trying to key information into an OpenOffice spreadsheet that is being viewed in another application, typically Firefox. Both windows are sized such that they fit on the screen at the same time. Prior to a week or so ago, this was very straight forward. Now when I click on an app in the Task Manager after opening OpenOffice, other open apps are minimized - sometimes all of them, sometimes just the most recent. I usually have Dolphin, a terminal window, Firefox, OpenOffice and sometimes a spreadsheet open. A friend who is far more familiar with Linux than I, suggested that the memory manager may have gotten confused and that logging out should clear this up. I tried that to no avail, as well as rebooting. I've also looked through the options in each of the apps that I've got open to see if there's any obvious user options that might be affecting this. I've found nothing.
I've got an OpenSUSE 11.0 machine that's been working fine for quite some time. Today it wasn't responding at all to HTTP or SSH requests, so I power-cycled it. Now it's freezing up during boot at "Setting up hardware clock". I can't get past it in the boot-up, whether I use the default or the failsafe boot options.
I'm able to fire it up with a 11.3 install DVD and enter the rescue mode. From there, though, I'm not sure what to do next.
I can't use YAST -- can't boot that far. Most of the threads I've found on this topic via Google recommend doing something in YAST, so I thought I'd nip that in the bud.
I did check the BIOS clock, and it was about a month slow. I reset it manually -- hopefully I haven't screwed myself completely.
Any assistance would be hugely appreciated. This box is running as a server for a few websites, and the users would like them back.
AFAIK this is OpenSUSE 11.0, 32-bit, but I could be mistaken. It might be 64-bit. Where would I check that prior to attempting to boot?
1.) I have several versions of ubuntu installed on my computer. Technically, all but one are incomplete installs which I would like to delete if possible?
2.) I would like to access my files from the Windows partition, but it doesn't show up under "system." Is it for some reason impossible to access Windows files?
3.) My computer's performance has dipped substantially in the last two days. I am trying to figure out why this is, if there is a task manager or the like or a performance diagnosis tool. Also, my computer does not have an anti-virus program, that might also be the cause of the poor system performance.
I am running Slackware -current and am using kde as my desktop environment. I'm not sure if this is a feature that I turned on my accident or a bug but its really annoying. When I start any program on the computer and it goes into the Task manager bar. If I click the bar to maximize the program or window it goes to the kde log on window. I am running KDE version 4.5.4.
I'm setting the hardware clock on RHEL 5.1 system using /sbin/hwclock --systohc. After setting the clock I issue a date command followed by a /sbin/hwclock --show from within a script to get fast resolution and I see that the hardware clock precedes the system time on average by .5 seconds. I would think the clock should be identical after setting.
The suse 10.0 64 bit partition on my box stops booting when it is setting up the cmos clock. The suse 10.0 32 bit partition boots up without a problem. I never had a problem with the suse 10.0 64 bit partition up until now. Is it possible to fix the problem using puppy linux and editing a configuration file? I do not think it is a hardware issue if the other partition on the drive boots up. Would puppy linux be a good way to backup files from this partition or can I mount the partition using the 32 bit os?
My file manager keeps on opening in the taskbar and it will not stop, but no application comes up, only in the taskbar. No icons will show up on my desktop either. When I go to open up the file manager, nothing comes up. Even when I try nautilus or sudo nautilus nothing happens. I read on another forum to use gconf-editor and nothing fixed it. What do I do? I need to have my computer fixed for school. I am running Ubuntu x86 64-bit on a HP Pavilion tx2500z laptop.
I run Ubuntu 10.10, recently I got this problem. if I open more than one program, and click on icon of them on task bar to switch between them, KDE crash and restart with log in screen. now since 2-3 days this restart also happening when I ALT+TAB to switch between running programs .
I'm running Kubuntu 9.10 (Karmic), and my System Monitor (a.k.a. Task Manager) has stopped working. I had been using the graphical version of the app because it was easier and faster for me to deal with. I know that there is a command line solution for this, but I also know it involves having to know the task number of the program I want to kill (I've got a game that I love to play, but only closes cleanly about 10% of the time). I've posted a couple of screen shots to show the errors... The first one is the error message itself (I have to hit 'OK' on this twice to clear it), and the second one is the resulting empty window of the System Monitor
When I attempt to connect to a wireless network, the network manager asks me for the network's password, then says 'setting network address' for 20 or so seconds, then asks me for some random Hex or ASCII key in the same type of window I put the password in (Secrets for Noel -- KDE Daemon). Since a key is already typed into the window, I press OK, which then causes the network manager to go back to 'setting network address', then the window pops up again and keeps repeating itself.
I'm running Opensuse 11.4 with KDE, and my driver is ath9k. I don't know much about linux so please don't tell me to 'recompile this' or 'change this setting' without explaining how to do it. Please help, I've been unable to connect to wireless in OpenSUSE for 2 weeks now.
How do you launch a task from a terminal command line interface and it not be kill'ed if you close the terminal window. Like if I run jedit I type jedit & which launches jedit as a backgorund task. But, if I close terminal window, jedit dies to. How do I laucnch jedit and completely divorce it from the terminal task?
