OpenSUSE :: Get Out Of The Netbook Desktop View (KDE 4.4)

In the netbook view it is impossible to right-click to configure the desktop. what command do i use to open desktop properties (the window where you change wallpaper, view type and so on)?

Does anyone know how to add a fully working (icon changes) Trashcan to the Desktop Folder View?I don't want the plasmoid/widget on the Desktop or on the Task Manager Panel.I can right click -> Create New -> Link to Location(URL), but the icon doesn't change.If the Desktop Folder View is a plasmoid, I guess I'm asking can a plasmoid (trash can) run inside another plasmoid (desktop view) %-)

OpenSUSE :: Folder View Appl. Showing Desktop Folder - How To Add Icons

Jan 21, 2010

I have the Folder View applet on the Desktop viewing the Desktop Folder "~/Desktop"

Some shortcuts are outdated because of new installation of opensuse 11.2...

How can I add icons there in?

I can add icons to the Desktop and Taskbar but no in this Folder View on the Desktop (BTW: Is this Panel called "Folder View applet"?)

If I try to move a icon from Desktop to this Panel it is not moved in this panel it is placed behind this Panel...

And how can I get more than one of this panels for example one displays the Desktop folder other the home dir ...

General :: Remotely View A Desktop From Windows XP?

Oct 11, 2010

I'm using Window-XP and need to remotely connect to a CentOS-5.X server.

UPDATE: I'm looking to visually, securely and with as small a footprint as possible manage a remote Linux system via an GUI. It's not clear to me if Linux has a default method for streaming the desktop. Before installing something on the remote Linux system, is there a grep or find I should run to see if there's existing support on the computer? looked at Xming, but couldn't tell what it's doing; meaning if like WinSCP it's just creating an interface on my end and running CMDs remotely, or if it's streaming the desktop.

Ubuntu :: How To Display Desktop In List View

Jun 8, 2011

Is there any way I can get my desktop to display the items on it in list view? I've spent a good part of a day doing google searches and reading thread after thread on this subject and I've tried all kinds of suggested ways of accomplishing it but as of yet I haven't had any success. I just switched to ubuntu from windows and I was able to do this in windows with a program that loaded at startup. Seeing as how linux is infinitely more customizable than windows I would assume this would be easy to do but I'm having no luck. Here's what my desktop looked like in windows, I'd like to make the icons display the same in ubuntu: [URL]

Kindly tell me how to see the desktop after i boot into the new kernel.

Ubuntu :: Differences Between Netbook And Desktop

Feb 13, 2010

what the actual differences are between the different versions?Is it simply in the interface or does netbook have different services running by default, different hardware detection or anything else that makes the system run any differently? I know netbook doesn't have compiz installed by default but is the rest of the package set the same? I ask because I have been having various problems with boot and audio along with a few other niggles. I was running the desktop edition through the betas and the RC with no problems at all but I installed lucid final from a netbook edition iso and have done two more fresh installs from netbook iso and seem to be having a lot more issues.

Ubuntu Installation :: Hdmi - Lcd Flashing Screen/cant View Whole Of Desktop?

Mar 27, 2010

i am trying to instal kubuntu 9.10 on my desktop. i have an ati radeon hd 4600 with a hdmi cable going into the 22" lcd. The problem is i cant view the whole desktop, like i can only see a part of the corner, and all of the icons are massize. The search bar at the bottom comes to half my screen size, making installation impossible to see. Plus i can only use live cd mode using safe graphics mode. i am new to linux finding this quite confusing.

Aug 2, 2010

I'm currently installing Arch Linux on my old netbook. What desktop environment should I use? GNOME and KDE both seem way too big and unnecessarily fancy for what I want to do with my basic netbook. I just want internet, read pdfs, run emacs. no fancy stuff. What should I use? xfce? lxde? and why?

Ubuntu :: Adding Folders On Netbook Desktop?

Jun 4, 2010

Basically in the files and folders section on the netbook edition desktop i would like to add another folder (my dropbox folder)

I think i read somewhere that you had to bookmark it or something but i dont know how to do that.

I suppose its the same as adding a folder to the files and folder menu on any normal distribution of ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: EeePC Netbook Remix Or Desktop?

Sep 14, 2010

I just bought an Asus EeePC 1201PN and am planning on installing Ubuntu on it. I prefer the traditional desktop interface and thus would like to install it. I have read accounts of people having no problems with it on the 1201N and am assuming it will be the same for my netbook.My question is is there really any difference if I install the Netbook Remix Edition then get the Desktop-Switcher and change it to the traditional interface? I heard that the NRE doesn't use Nautilus. If I install NRE then use the Desktop-Switcher will I be able to use Nautilus or will it still be the NRE with everything else to "optimize" the netbook's performance?

Would it be possible to install the Desktop Edition then get repositories for things that will help my netbook perform better?

Ubuntu :: Trying To Install Netbook But Get Desktop Version

I've tried the same USB drive on two other laptops - one netbook and one mobil workstation - and both of them boot into the Netbook Remix. Is there any rational reason for this or???

Ubuntu :: Upgrade Netbook Version To Desktop?

Jan 3, 2011

I am making the switch to Linux and I really love Ubuntu. My DVD player isn't working, so I'm using my flash drive. It was too small for the desktop installer, so I used the netbook. I'm installing it as I type this (having the browser thats available for browsing while installing is awesome!)

Is there a way to upgrade to move to the desktop version after I finish? Also, what's the difference between the two. Links are fine. I tried google, but my google-fu must not be too strong today.

Ubuntu :: Replace System Netbook 10.10 With Desktop 10.04?

Apr 4, 2011

I have netbook 10.10 installed on a Acer Aspire One on part of the disk and Windows 7 on another part. (There is no information worth saving in the 10.10 "home" file.)

Can I just install Ubuntu 10.04 as if I were doing it for the first time (as I did with netbook 10.10)? Will 10.04 simply replace 10.10?

Ubuntu Networking :: Using Synergy Between My Desktop And My Netbook

May 23, 2011

I'm having some serious issues using Synergy between my desktop and my netbook. Both are running Ubuntu 11.04.

I installed quicksynergy from the software center and everything started ok. I wanted my desktop to be the server, I opened quick synergy and put in the IP address of my netbook, which I got from connection infromation>IP address, then hit execute and close. Next on the netbook, I opened quick synergy put in my desktop's IP address (acquired from the same location) in the "Server hostname/IP address:" box and my netbook's name in the "Screen name:" box. I hit execute and close.

Now when I move my cursor from the right side of my desktop's screen where it should move over to the netbook, the cursor jumps to the middle of the screen on the desktop and does nothing to the netbook.
