Everytime to launch it, i open the terminal windows, cd to that directory and type ./seamonkey.
My question is, how to launch it from any where? Just type ./seamonkey and it will run?

Ubuntu :: Launch Q CAD (or Any Other Application ) At Startup

May 26, 2011

I have downloaded Ubuntu within windows 7, with wubi. It shows itself as Ubuntu 10.10, though I had selected 11.04, not to worry, this is for information only. I downloaded Q Cad, a drawing programme from the Ubuntu software centre and it shows in the list but I do not know how to launch it.I will have to down load some more applications and I think I will run into this wall again. I can enter CLI through Ctrl+Alt+F1 to F7 and probably do nothing more.

Ubuntu :: How To Launch An Application As Root

Feb 6, 2011

I use Firestarter, seems to be a good firewall. But it is a desktop/GUI application, and it requires root access, or rather sudo in Ubuntu. Every time I launch it, I am required to type in my user (not root) password. How can I make it run automatically at startup (KDE) without prompting for a password?

OpenSUSE Install :: BIOS Message - Fails To Launch From CD

May 16, 2011

Recently, for whatever reason (I am led to suspect a bad hard drive), Windows 7 failed to boot even in safe mode so I decided to just use a clear hard drive and install a far less troublesome OS, so I decided to try to use openSUSE. I used a backup laptop to download and burn the 4.7 GB release. Problem is, I haven't a clue how to get it to work. I thought just placing the burned DVD in when booting would be enough, but the BIOS keeps telling me it fails to launch from CD. Luckily, I had enough foresight to download a live CD just in case. I was able to install from the live CD, and when I checked the DVD, I was able to access all the content.

But I haven't a clue how to use it to upgrade/install all the extra software. Also, I should add I am completely new to this whole thing. While I have used Linux before, for the most part others dealt with all the administrative aspects of ensuring the system actually ran/had the needed software on it. Finally, I have one major restriction placed on this whole issue. I live out in the middle of no-where and the only internet I can get is limited to 200MB a day (I downloaded the CD/DVD elsewhere, but normally don't have a chance to do that). As such, being able to install from the DVD and not needing to download much software would be nice.

OpenSUSE :: Launch Application In Desktop N When Booting

May 24, 2010

This has probably been asked about before.... I would like to start apps in desktop 2, 3 and 4. To start apps during boot, I use two different methods: The .xinitrc file in /home/dan works fine under: "Add your own lines here..." Startup Applications in Gnome | System works well as well. Here, I can enter nautilus /dir and nautilus starts up just fine in that directory. But as I mentioned, I have yet to find a way to direct the program to run in a different desktop other than #1.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Launch A .sh From An Application Shortcut

Sep 1, 2010

I'm new here, but certainly not new to Linux. Some of you may recognise my screen handle from other forum groups. Sadly my other communities seem to be dying and this one is going strong so here I am! I'm sure there's something I'm doing incorrectly, but here's my scenario:

I have a pair of shell scripts that launch SSH sessions with different forwarded ports, and use them multiple times each day. I'd like to drag the shell script directly onto the top Ubuntu Bar where shortcuts go and be able to use it. Or, even better, put all of my frequently used shell scripts in a "drawer". I know that I used to be able to make a shortcut, and set its path to "gnome-terminal -e file://" and the script would run in a new terminal window. When I try to do this, a terminal opens with an error dialog that reads "There was an error creating the child process for this terminal". Permissions?

Ubuntu :: Launch An Additional Application And Add It To The Launcher?

Dec 2, 2010

I run 10.10, netbook. Fine so far. I don't manage to call an application that I added manually, though. I have created a menu item, with all subdetails, a proper command, icon, everything. And I can see it in the menu editor, and it is there, even after a reboot. But: How to launch it?? It never shows up under applications, it doesn't show up in Searches, I can't type it in. It does work fine, though, when I open a terminal and add the proper command. It then also shows in the launcher list (left column). But it can't make it 'stick' there, the right-click option does not show in this case.

how to *start* an application that I have added to the menu? Why would a menu item never show as an available application?

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows Installer Launch Error Message

Feb 1, 2011

I want to download and install Ubuntu to run alongside Windows 7 in a dual boot configuration. and downloaded the Windows Installer, but when I try to launch it I get an error message which I captured and attached to this post. What's really wierd is that once the message is displayed, I can't get rid of it. Even running the Task Manager to try to close the message doesn't work. I literally have to restart the computer to get rid of the message!

Am I suppose to be downloading the Windows Installer (Wubi) to a CD first where I run it from there? If so, the instructions don't mention that. Can't I download it directly to my C: drive and then run it from there? If so, why am I getting the error message?

OpenSUSE :: Launch The Application To Install Windows Software?

Apr 5, 2011

I installed Crossover Office Pro (full release) which I used on previous version of opensuse, but now it is installed on opensuse 11.4 64 bits. The installation is fine, but the problems begin when I try to launch the application to install windows software.

I get this output:

alienware:/opt/cxoffice/bin # ./cxinstaller
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./cxinstaller", line 85, in <module>
import gtk
ImportError: No module named gtk

It has something to do with python I guess but I tried about every possible solution I could find on the internet but nothing works. Any idea's how to fix this error? I tried all option, but no luck so far.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Simultaneous Application Launch In BASH?

Feb 28, 2010

I'm trying to launch CoverGloobus (a fantastic little album art and current song display) and Rhythmbox simultaneously through a BASH script. Problem is that when I attempt to run the script the first time, CoverGloobus doesn't launch, but Rhythmbox does. Here's my script as it is right now:


#! /bin/bash
#Opens Rhythmbox and CoverGloobus
rhythmbox && covergloobus

I've double-checked the commands in gnome-terminal, and they're the right ones for launching the applications. Here's where it gets odd, though. The second time I run the script, CoverGloobus and Rhythmbox launch simultaneously. I've reproduced this scenario multiple times.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Launch Application In Specific Monitor?

I have a laptop running Ubuntu hooked up to a TV via a VGA to S-Video converter with the VGA-out through an external monitor, and I am trying to find a way to set vlc or mplayer to open fullscreen in the external monitor by default. Eventually I want to be able to hit enter on a video file and have it play on the TV without any dragging to the external monitor. I have googled around a bit, checked the monitor settings options, and looked through the media player options but so far can't find anything.

General :: Launch Application With Keyboard Shortcut In Gnome

Dec 13, 2010

I use ctrl + shift + s to launch synaptic in KDE. That works wonderful and it is standardized on all my systems. I want to define the same in gnome, so that it does not matter if I'm in gnome or KDE.Where can I do this?Now before you start mentioning, I am familiar with keyboard launchers like launchy or gnome do (but have to admit that I don't know that much what gnome do does in all extents), so I am not looking for a program that launches an app after typing a few letters. I want exactly that keyboard combination, everything else will not do it.

I just mention that, because it happens all the time that I see in my posts that I ask:
How can I do B with Y? I don't want to use Z. (specifically asking the question) and then hear as an answer: you can do B with Z!And I am always tempted to answer: That is not what I asked, I asked something specific and got an answer that does not concern it.

Ubuntu :: Opening Downloads In Firefox Brings Up "Launch Application" Dialog

Sep 1, 2011

I had recently reinstalled Kubuntu after breaking it for the n-th time and downloads will no longer open from the Downloads window of Firefox. Instead, it brings up a dialog with the title Launch Application and asks me which application I should open it with. This seems to happen all of the file formats I have tried; namely pdf, zip, deb, and png. This did not happen from before the reinstallation.
