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?

Fedora :: How To Reset Gnome Desktop

Oct 24, 2009

I created a separate /home partition to share between F10 and F11. And, of course, the gnome settings conflict. I really don't need to go back to F10 and when I install F12 over it I will omit including the separate /home directory during the install set up and that will force F12 to create the /home Dir on the same file system. So, to clear up gnome settings for now, is the only way mean deleting the .gconf, .gnome* directories? This was recommended in another post back a few years ago.

Fedora :: Unable To Reset Using Either The Reset Option In Gnome Shell Or The Command Using A Terminal?

Jun 3, 2011

I'm unable to reset using either the reset option in gnome shell or the command using a terminal. When I select it the shell exits and displays the graphic "exploding" and then it just sits there. Shutdown works fine; just no reset. Any ideas? I've installed from the DVD. I booted the live CD and it resets just fine so I know it's no my hardware

OpenSUSE Install :: Magic "reset The Desktop To Default" Command?

Dec 26, 2010

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?

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 :: 11.4 + Gnome Desktop Freezes?

Mar 10, 2011

I have updated Opensuse 11.3 to 11.4. I have also updated to the latest NVIDIA drivers. Now, when Gnome desktop starts it freezes: it draws all the shortcuts on the desktop but I cannot use my wired mouse to click anything as if the desktop has freezed. The cursor shows that something is loading. I cannot also use Ctl + F2 to start xterm... But I can use Ctl + Alt + F12, so the keyboard is working.

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.

OpenSUSE :: GNOME Shell Lost Desktop Icons?

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. The application opens and runs as normal when I click on the space where the icon should be. The icons are also missing from the favorites bar on the left side and also from the panel top left when the app is running.I have tried, rebuilding the icon cache in 'usr/share/icons/hicolor', and also all othercon caches for that matter, and no difference. 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

I recently installed a Suse Studio build and trying to customize it. When I login as an ordinary user, there are 2 icons on Gnome desktop (or nautilus); Home and Trash. These appear to be undeleteable and I want an undeleteable Firefox icon on my desktop as well. When I create a Firefox shortcut; it can be deleted no matter what I do; i.e. giving read-only permissions or chown to root. So, I think these desktop icons are different than ordinary app

I installed Opensuse 11.2 DVD on a machine with Windows XP. During the installation I installed the KDE desktop. I had not tried out the KDE desktop.
