SUSE / Novell :: Install Application In 11.2 - Doesn't Show Up In The List Of Apps
Aug 3, 2010
I'm trying to install kweather in 11.2. I have downloaded and installed. I can find it in usr/bin and usr/lib but I can't add an application as in 11 or 11.1. It doesn't show up in the list of apps. It's there but I can't get it on the desktop.
I have a command which is application related and I get a output some thing like this when I execute the command...Quote:applicationrunningSo I need to write script to see if application is running, if application state running run some command else run echo command to state application is not running.So I need to run the first command, then based on output (Application status), run the second command else echo command.
I am using SLES10 and i checked with command crontab -l and when i compared it with the cron.d/daily/monthly/hourly , all they are different. is there any single command that list out all the cronjobs that exist under the system.
how to install a D-Link Access Point on Suse 11.0 or steer me toward documentation that will do that? I configured the device on XP following instruction from this forum and the AP configured perfectly.The AP is plugged directly into the network port on the computer. It *should* function correctly without a router. I tried a restart and Suse has no idea it's there. The computer is currently configured for a wired connection which needs to be changed. The computer itself is going to be used as a small home storage server.
I've pre-partitioned my HDD and want to install 11.2 on the second primary partition.However, when using the installer, I can't get Suse to install on the prepared 20gb partition - it keeps insisting it wants to install on the large unallocated section of the drive.
I find the partitioner somewhat hard to use and the answer may be staring me in the face but I can't see it.
I just installed the software for my APC UPS on my SUSE 11.2 machine. After some work I finally got it work except I have to go and start it each time I reboot. It is supposed to load automatically, but somehow mine doesn't. If I go to a command prompt as SU and type "apcupsd start" and then go look at the GUI everything shows up fine.
I didn't have any luck finding the solution for not getting opengl working on a SLES11 server with a remote X-Win32 client. As a reference I've used the tool "glxgears" for testing.We have two servers. One (server A) with SLES10 and the other (server B) with SLES11. We use X-Win32 (ver. 9.x) as an X-server on a Microsoft Windows client machine. Both servers are connected to with ssh with X11 forwarding enabled (Xclock works fine on both).Starting glxgears from server A works fine; Three nice gears are displayed.
When I look at the boot.msg log I see nothing about a firmware failing to load. Does that mean I already have it?
When I try the /usr/sbin/iwconfig command I get: lo no wireless extensions eth0 no wireless extensions When I try the /usr/sbin/iwlist scan command I get: lo Interface doesn't support scanning. eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.
There's a page (ar9170 - Linux Wireless) where I can supposedly download the ar9170.fw firmware that supports this device. But when I try to download it it doesn't show up in the /lib/firmware directory and I don't know why.
The system sees the USB adapter, but it doesn't appear to be working. Do I need the firmware? And if so, how do I download it-
I really liked the new Appmenu included in the netbook version of Ubuntu so I installed it on my desktop. Unfortunately in regular Ubuntu the appmenu doesn't show the application title, just File, Edit, and so on. The old globalmenu package showed the application title in bold, and the netbook version of ubuntu seems to as well. How can I get this in normal Ubuntu?
So I have tried to install from LiveCD and from a LiveUSB stick. Installation goes fine till I get to CUPS daemon. Then I get the wait 30 seconds for CUPS to activate, that never works. Then it pops up with a wait one minute for CUPS to become available. Then it finishes the installation and restarts the system and I get previous installation has failed would you like to retry? It does this over and over again till I get an error with my user name and the mouse and keyboard quit working. I have tried in Failsafe mode, No ACPI, etc. and nothing seems to work. I don't know if it matters but I have an Asus mobo M4A785-M and an AMD Athlon II x3 440 chip. I am just ready to switch to Ubuntu
I've an HDD with a dual boot of XP and Mint Linux. It works well. I'd now like to add OpenSUSE 11.2 but if I accept auto partition it seems to want to overwrite the Mint partitions which I assume are sda5 and sda8. So how should I proceed with manual install as I have the following large number of existing partitions:
Should I resize sda3? can I use sda8 as /Home for both Mint and OpenSUSE?
I am using openSUSE 11.0. This OS installation gives firefox 3.0.5 Beta. I had installed new version of firefox at /usr/local/bin/firefox. I had placed link of this firefox at /usr/bin using this command ->
linux-snvz:/usr/bin # ln -s /usr/local/bin/firefox/firefox firefox My older firefox contains the flush plugin. So i can easily played ..... video's in my browser. But now my new browser saying that it doesn't have flash plugin. I was tried to install flash plugin once again.
Even after installation also my browser is again without flash plugin.
OpenSuse 11.2 This link shows that gdb-7.2-61.1.x86_64.rpm is the latest version of GDB, but when I do: zypper install gdb, the version 6.8.x gets installed! The following result is after forceful refreshment:
I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro laptop with the following specifications:Proccesor: Intel Core i3 350M / 2.26 GHzRAM: 4GB DDR3Hard Disk: 320GB SATA 5400rpmArchitecture: x86_64The computer has already Windows 7 installed on the C drive whereas there's a D hidden drive with a copy of the recovery image.I'm having trouble to install openSuSE 11.3 as follows:I boot the system with the DVD in its drive. After the welcome screen the process stops using the typical GUI interface and runs a less graphical one. It is at this point where a window pops up with a request:"Make sure that CD number 1 is in your drive"I press OK but the window keeps popping up. Frustrated I hit Back and a red window comes up with the message:"No repository found."I cannot go any further than this point
I have downloaded tarballs of gpg2 (gnupg-2.0.16), compiled it, compiled dependencies etc. and have it installed on my Suse 10 box. Now I want to install it on another suse 10 box. Instead of doing the compiling/installing steps once again, is there a good way I can package gpg2, or tar it on my server, so it can be easily installed on the other server? Also, when I installed gpg, it was installed everywhere, /usr/local/lib, /usr/local/bin, my download dir etc. How do I pick the needed libraries and executable to make the package? maybe I Should specify a path for the gpg to be installed, then tar the whole directory. how to do the first part?
I'm installing OpenSuse 11.2 on some systems. Unfortunately the only mouse available is a serial mouse. Hence the installer doesn't recognize the mouse.And it is somewhat cumbersome using the TAB and ARROW keys to navigate the graphical installation.Does anyone know of a boot option I could use to get OpenSuse's installer to recognize a serial mouse ?
Installed Suse 11.2 from download CD. During the "answering questions" at the beginning of the process, selected Gnome as the desktop enviornment instead of the default KDE. The install process ended with no reported errors. After the final reboot at the process's end, the Gnome logon screen was displayed. After the user name/password were entered, a medium green screen was displayed, but the Gnome desktop was never displayed. The "animal" logo was not on the screen just the green screen and some "filagree" lines, probably part of the logo.
Waited a few minutes, mouse-clocked, pressed various keys and then tried ctrl-alt-del, but no response. Did a power off/on reboot, but the results were the same.
I then did a re-install. Took the KDE default for desktop. At install's end, the KDE desktop appeared and everything works just fine. During this second install, all choices were the same as for the first/Gnome install. Worked from written notes, and not from memory, so am sure that the change to KDE was the only difference.
Couldn't find any information on this anomally via forum and Google searches, hence this post.
This is my first time to use Suse, so could well have "missed something".
I am using Open office 3.2 with Ubuntu 10.10. Trying to get it set up to print out the Christmas address labels. To register the data source its 'FILE'> 'WIZARDS' then' ADDRESS DATA SOURCE.' But OO doesn't show the 'ADDRESS DATA SOURCE' at the bottom of the list, so I am stuck. Apart from that, I have had no problems with ubuntu and its working well.
How to recover from a failed OpenSUSE install. The situation is that I have a striped RAID set up on two 500Gb drives running Windows. I wanted a dual boot setup, and I tried to install OpenSUSE but it failed with a Grub error 18. This, I understand, is caused by my BIOS not being able to access the part of the drive with the /boot on. Because I have two 500 Gb disks, the OpenSUSE /boot partition is beyond the BIOS's addressing range.
The recommended solution seems to be to put the /boot at the start of the HDD - but then I'd need to move Windows after it somewhere. But I don't know how to do that and it seems a risky, longwinded business. I've given up on the OpenSUSE install. My problem is that the failed install has grabbed about half of the diskspace for its purposes. Question therefore is: how can I reclaim that space for Windows?
I have an Intel MB (855GME with 6300ESB) that I'm having trouble installing OpenSUSE 11.1 onto the IDE drive. It will install to a SATA drive but for various reasons I need to install on IDE (PATA on 6300ESB). The install fails to find any ide drive (I know the drive/interface works because I can install XP on this same ide drive and boot from it). If I parse the dmesg output I see the message "ata_piix 0000:1f.1 device not available because of BAR 2 (0x0-0x7) collisions". I'm trying to determine if there's some workaround for this. I've tried various kernel parameters and no joy.
I've tried Ubuntu with similar results. Older kernels WILL install onto this same MB/PATA controller (Ubuntu 6.06, 2.6.15 and RHEL4) so it seems that something changed in the ATA driver as the kernel has matured and my bios isn't up to snuff for these pickier drivers.
I have two wifi routers. If I stand next to the main one with my laptop I can connect and access the internet no problem. The other router is in my office, and the bridging is messed up, so while I see the essid and bssid using 'iwlist scanning' and nm-tool, I can't connect to it.
Now, my main router's signal still reaches to my office, just not as strong as the borked router in my office. I need to be able to choose which wifi network to connect to without wasting time walking between rooms. I added entries for both in network-manager, but it doesn't show them in the list when I left click the tray icon! How the do I connect to the network I want?
