Slackware :: How Can I Restore It To Gnome And Add It To KDE

Mar 8, 2010

When I used KDE 4.3.1 with Slack kernel, there were no option to shutdown the computer from KDE. I always had to log off, then issue a "sudo /sbin/halt". The same goes for the reboot option.When I tried XFCE and Gnome Slackbuild on the same kernel, I noticed that there was options to reboot and shutdown. But when I compiled a new 2.6.33 kernel, it seems such options disappeared from Gnome. I didn't check XFCE.

How can I restore it to Gnome, and add it to KDE? I tried looking in the kernel config, but couldn't figure out which option is related to that.

Ubuntu :: How To Restore Gnome In 10.04

Apr 16, 2011

I pulled a bone headed maneuver when I thought I would try KDE. I used Synaptic and thought that I had done all correctly but on reboot all I got was a BG screen and a terminal wanting me to log in. I did but remained in the terminal... lost! I had passed on my 32 bit copy of Lucid so I installed the 64 bit copy on a new partition, so as to recover all my data. The problem is that the Flash Player does not work and I'm not inclined to fight it into living. I am downloading the 32 bit copy, right now but I need to know if it is possible to repair my old 32 bit install and save many hours of agony?

Ubuntu :: Restore Gnome Panel

Oct 15, 2010

The other day I kind of messed up my panel and accidentally removed the exit icon from the upper right corner (in the panel). So I tried to restore the panel using this command:


It did the trick and restored the panels, however instead of saying my user name, it said root (again the upper right corner, in the panel). I realized this might be because I ran the command with sudo but if I didn't it would not succeed. AND when I reboot, it returns to its' messed up state.

I am running Ubuntu 10.10

Software :: Use 'screen' To Restore A Gnome-session?

Oct 24, 2010

This is regarding the 'screen' utility. I use an utility called 'HummingBird Exceed' to get the XSession of a linux client on my windows desktop (basically it uses XDMCP). But the pain is that at the end of the day, when I close Exceed, the session gets destroyed. I did lot of searching on the web to know how the save and restore session in Exceed, but failed. However, I found that 'screen' is the utility which keeps the session intact even when you logout. So, I did the following:

a. Logged into the machine using Putty (terminal emulator).

b. Started 'screen'.

c. Issued the command: /usr/bin/gnome-session

I got the XSession on the Exceed and started working. I opened three or four gnome-terminals. But when I logout of exceed(and detach from the screen), the screen displayed a message saying that 'Connection to XServer was lost". Hence I could not restore to this session when I reattached to the screen. how do I use 'screen' so that when I attach to the screen on which I had started gnome-session, it attempts to connect to the Xserver and open the session as it was before detaching?

General :: Restore The Gnome Panel Volume Control In 10.04?

May 25, 2010

I use alsa, and I don't have a volume control applet on my Gnome Panel.When I right click and select "add to panel", there is nothing that has to do with "sound", "audio" or "volume" in the list, and the "Indicator Applet" or "Indicator Applet Session" things have no volume controls, or properties that would let you enable any sort of volume control.

How can I get a volume control in Ubuntu, so I don't have to run aumix in a terminal or something? I've got the thing working now. But does anyone know why the new, fancy "Indicator Applet" volume control doesn't appear? The Gnome Volume Control Applet isn't as nicely featured, although it actually works.

I've been using Linux since Redhat 5, it's beyond me why these sorts of problems are still around. Someone should just put a damn "Volume Control" element in the list of things to add to the panel, even if it doesn't work, perhaps showing an error message.

CentOS 5 :: Gnome-login Configuration - Restore User Profile?

Nov 20, 2009

Last night I started my computer and loaded my CentOS 5.2 partition (Windows 7 on the other partition). I was able to login to my account, but was given a gnome error that the panel buttons (i.e. weather, cpu monitor etc) could not be loaded. I then went to restart the computer (probably not the smartest thing to do) and was given some file errors upon shutdown that were related to /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00. After restart I was taken to a shell and ran fsck manually. It seemed to find a lot of bad blocks, so I repaired the /dev/VolGroup00 system and restarted. At this point CentOS seemed to boot normally, but upon loading of the login screen I get the error: Configuration not correct The configuration file contains an invalid command line for the login dialog, so running the default command. Please fix your configuration.

I cannot even log in as root. I get the error /usr/bin/gnome-session: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared objects file: no such file or directory. I then went to a shell and ran: sudo yum install, but the package was already installed and up to date, so there was nothing to do. I am therefore stuck at this login screen with pull-down menus and tabs where I can change the configuration, add/remove users etc. So, my question is this: How do I restore my user profile so I can login....and if anyone has some insight, what caused this to happen in the first place? I should also mention, this all happened after plugging the computer into a new internet connection. No clue if that's even relevant.

Slackware :: Creating A Bootable DVD To Automatically Restore?

Feb 4, 2010

I'll be away from home for the following weeks (and perhaps months). I want to use the Internet with confidence, so I have setup an old computer with SSH and I'll be tunneling to that (from a netbook).I haven't remote-managed a computer for such a long time and I want to be sure that even if I do a mistake remotely, I can bring the computer back to a good known state.The home computer will reside inside my aunt's house and she knows very few about computers.

I've been thinking about burning a bootable DVD containing a tarball of a freshly configured Slackware. If I mess up, I can phone my aunt and tell her to simply put the DVD inside the drive and press ctrl-alt-del. The DVD boots, un-tars (the fresh Slackware), ejects the CD-tray, waits for her to press Enter, closes the tray, and finaly reboots to my good old known fresh Slackware.

Slackware :: Way To Restore Deleted LVM2 Volumes?

Jun 12, 2010

I was trying to remove a logical volume, but used the lvremove command incorrectly.

I did something like:


Thinking it would remove somelv from myvg

But instead it said "volume group somelv: not found" and then deleted all the logical volumes in myvg.

Is there any way to restore them or is it reinstall time?

I had some backups of my system, but unfortunately they were stored on a logical volume in the same volume group.

Slackware :: Unable To Restore Xorg Resolution?

Aug 30, 2010

When the power twitches, and X is displayed on the current tty. the display resolution is somehow lost. When the system is rebooted and X restarted, the resolution displayed (and the best offered) is 800x600.My resolution of choice is 1280x1024, and none of the configuration files appear to have been changed.The X resolution is unaffected if another tty was displayed at the time. (I am often working on two or three consoles as well as what X is using)In the past it has been sufficient to comb through the file system and delete all the temporary files and caches that seem to be associated with X. I have never been sure if this was actually any sort of solution to begin with, but in any case it no longer seems to work.

I've deleted the .gnome2, .gconf and .gconfd folders but that has not solved the problem.

Slackware :: Use Of Zenwalk GNOME Packages As GNOME Distribution

Jul 26, 2010

Recently I've read an interview at Distrowatch, where a topic was the compatibility of Slackware and Zenwalk packages. My understanding was that now they should both be used in both systems.

As Slackware doesn't feature a complete GNOME distribution, my curiosity was about the ability of Zenwalk's GNOME packages play a role there. If so, the second question is how intrusive those packages are considering Slackware 13.1.

Slackware :: Linvo 2009.1rc6 - Slackware-based LiveCD With GNOME

Jan 6, 2010

I'm happy to announce Linvo 2009.1 rc6. It's a full-featured Linux distribution with a lot of applications by default, including an office suite ( extended with plugins), a good internet browser (Firefox extended with plugins), a music player that supports music collection and a lot more - Exaile, a video player, and all the available codecs. It can open all types of file formats. It's a LiveCD, which means that you can test it without installing and after this optionally install it - it has a nice easy graphical installer.

It's the first Slackware-based LiveCD distribution with GNOME by default. It includes NetworkManager and initng in place of sysvinit. It also features accessibility tools. It is also the first release with the innovative portable applications system. This allows you to download application from the site (modules section), place it where you like, and use it. It's just a single file, no directories. You can also use this application without installing it, directly from the internet. However, after this, the speed of the application is limited by the speed of your connection, of course. Check out the "Applications" section on the website.

Besides this, you can install software with the apt-get-like system "slapt-get" and it's graphical front-end: GSlapt. It also contains src2pkg and sbopkg in case you want to compile something from source or existing SlackBuild Depfinder is included to find dependencies of packages. Click here for a guide on how to use those. I also managed to put development tools in there, like GCC, G++, svn, cvs, so on... This is a release candidate, and despite that it's OK for using. It has a bit more things to do until the release (like language selection on the boot menu), but I decided that it's important to put it here for testing.

Slackware :: Desktop Fonts Got Tiny - How To Restore Original Size

Jun 8, 2010

When booting into my slack12 fluxbox desktop today my fonts were so small they were hard to read. The same is true if I use kde. I didn't change anything that I can think of. I tried running fc-cache but it didn't change anything. My xorg.conf hasnt changed. Interestingly, my xterm font didn't change size, but the konsole font is tiny like my other desktop fonts.

Slackware :: Fonts For Gnome Apps In Std Slackware Install

Jan 4, 2011

I'm interested in seeing what others are doing w.r.t. fonts in a standard Slack install. The 2 main apps I use are Firefox and Thunderbird and both look fairly poor out of the box. Previously I've used a combination of gtk-qt-engine and gnome-appearance-properties ( with a gsb install ) but this doesn't always do the 'right thing'.

Slackware :: Can I Make KDE / Gnome Look Like Windows 7 In Slackware

Feb 26, 2010

You might be asking why would I want to this? I will tell you why. My wife. She has grown up using Windows. The jump from Windows XP to 7 wasn't as bad as I thought it would be for her. I just had to show her where things changed to for about 10-20 minutes and that was that.

I did a trial run with Ubuntu for about a month using Gnome and not her cup of tea. So now I did a search on the Internet and came up with a Gnome solution here is the link:

And a KDE link:

But both websites are oriented towards Ubuntu/Kubuntu. I am just wondering if this will work with Slackware???

My wife likes a speedy system almost as much as I do. She also like the Search field when you click on the Start menu in Windows 7, the taskbar at the bottom, the big red X in right hand corner of the windows.

I just hope I can go this route and change it to look like Windows 7. I will be very happy and so will my wife of course.

But when gnome loads, none of my normal extentions load like my wireless driver, the sound driver, etc. how to restore gnome to automatically load the default user on start up or fix any other damage I might have done? lol

Ubuntu :: Way To Restore Gnome Defaults / System Defaults

Apr 21, 2011

I installed the Elegant Gnome theme/package and I uninstalled it after about a week of use. Even after reverting back to the ambiance theme, or other themes, I've noticed that some elements of the Elegant Gnome theme have remained (e.g. the panel color and icons in Chrome or after right clicking and the system font).Is there a way to restore the Gnome defaults or Ubuntu system defaults so that everything is as it should be?
