Slackware :: Mousepad Patch Available For Find Button?
May 19, 2010
Mousepad in xfce seems to have a problem when compiled with the latest libraries. In Slackware Current (13.1 RC1?) the "Find" button stays disabled the SECOND time you try to do a "find". Because of this, you can only do one "find" without closing Mousepad and opening it again.I found a bug report for this problem in a forumr a different distribution:[URL]I have applied this patch to the current xfce source code on my local machine and it seemed to solve the problem.It would be nice if this patch could make its way into the 13.1 release.
I just want to upgrade my Slackware 13.1 kernel (18.104.22.168) to the latest stable kernel from kernel.org (22.214.171.124). I have never done anything like this and I am a Linux newbie, so I would appreciate a "Kernel Patching for Dummies" version if possible. I did do a search on this forum and most of what I read was over my head. I found an FAQ on kernelnewbies.org on "How To Apply A Patch" but when I attempted what they suggested, it said it couldn't find the file to patch at line 5 and asked me which file to patch. So I CTRL-Z'd out of there and came here. Here's what I tried:
it's possible to compile the 2.6.37 kernel patched with the autogroup patch on a Slackware 13.1 system running 126.96.36.199-smp with 188.8.131.52 headers? I just compiled and installed the 2.6.37-autogroup kernel from AUR on my ARCH setup and I like it especially when using firefox with lots of tabs open and other background apps also running. I did notice a speed and smothness difference in my ARCH testing setup with this kernel patch and I can get same results in 13.1??
[URL]... Anyone got this going on slackware? I've a single cpu and twincore here and the videos of the original patch were impressive. I tried it and I don't have /sys/fs/cgroup anything. So I added the cgroup scheduler in 2.6.35, but no dice. Do I have to go to git or 2.6.37??
I started up my machine this morning and entered my password to encfs as I do each day and was greeted with a message telling me my password was incorrect. I tried several times, checked caps lock but no joy.
The message (which I didn't copy and paste unfortunately) mentioned ssl and I remembered that openssl was one of the security patches I applied at the weekend. So I removepkg'd the two openssl packages (v0.9.8m) and then installpkg'd the original ones that came with slackware 13.0 (v0.9.8k).
i removed the shutdown button from panel and i cant find it and dont know what to do i already went to the add to panel option but there is no shutdown button there i cant even shutdown using ctrl+alt+delete
I'm trying to install a patch but when I copy it into terminal I get message " /home/john/patch-modules_v62-opensuse.sh 'vmware-7.1.3-2.6.37-rc5.patch' not found. copy it to the current '/home/john' directory. Exiting" But I have it in my home directory!
I need to be able to install new virtual machines with Oracle VM. There's console button in the web interface which opens VNC connection to specified Virtual guest but it haven't been able to get it to work yet. [URL] I converted the rpm to tgz package and installed it. It installs the packages to /opt. I also tried info in the following link: [URL] Firefox's about:config lists the ovm-console plugin active and when I press the console button in the web page it opens up a new window. The window doesn't prompt for missing plugin but it won't open the VNC display either. As an alternative I installed tigervnc from Aliens repo but it has problems with the mouse cursor. My laptop mouse cursor goes at different pace than the vnc client cursor so it makes its use very hard.
Edit, forgot to mention that I checked and tightvnc-java package is installed on the Oracle VM manager and the console button works on Windows and on Fedora when I tried it. So the issue seems to be limited to my Slackware64 setup.
There is server with 3 hdd mounted to /h1 /h3 /h4 and its a file server contain 3 TB of data (must of them are in zip or rar format), We need to move whole files to the new server.I need a command or bash file to show me the name of files in these partition and the patch of them in the txt log file. (So i can create the link and download all of them in new server with download manager).I tried rsync but its too slow...After we created the links of whole files we will deny all ip address exclude new server IP address in nginx then we can transfer them all fast. (The servers are in 1 datacenter.)
i'm using F13 64 bit on an hp pavilion dv7. i turned off my mousepad today with a hardware button that is located above it and after re-enabling it my mousepad won't work. i rebooted and it still won't work. how can i re-enable my mousepad
I've got 5 users who share a bunch of virtual Windows XP guests via VRDP (VirtualBox RDP access), and I'm having some problems with managing their NumLock state. They all use rdesktop to access the Windows XP machines. This works very well, as long as all of them have NumLock enabled. If one of them disables it by mistake, and then logs into one of the Windows XP machines, NumLock is disabled and some of the programs they use start to act really weird. This is causing us some grief.
So I'd like to be able to enable NumLock on all the computers (they are all running Slackware 12.2) before X, while X runs and while KDE is running. And when NumLock is enabled for the entire system, thenI'd like to remove the ability to disable NumLock altogether. NumLock should always be enabled for these users, no matter what. It would be really nice if Linux/X/KDE/whatever just honored the BIOS setting, but I haven't been able to figure out how to do that. Oh, and I'd really like if the NumLock LED was ON, so everybody are made aware of the fact that they have NumLock turned on.
ps. I've tried remapping the keys on the numeric pad with xmodmap, but that doesn't solve the problem. The actual NumLock state must be set to avoid problems with the troubled Windows programs.
I have just installed slackware. I have done Code: Xorg -configure And chosen kde for init program while installing slackware. But when I type Code: Xorg -config -retro or Code: startx I get black screen with blinking button on monitor and keyboard. Obviously KDE doesn't start.
I upgraded to 13.1 and found the restart, shutdown buttons do not work. I have to resort to the terminal commands init 6, or poweroff. I then tried to install flash plugin. I modified the slackbuild script as per normal. Then issued the following command which seemed to succeed. But when I try to play utube movie it says flash is not installed. Do I need to rebuild the system?
I recently switched to Fedora from Debian (Fedora 12 LXDE Spin), and the one thing that bothers me is that I can't find a way to enable tapping on the mousepad to click. So far the solutions I've found have included editing the xorg.conf, which, to my understanding, is no longer included in the Fedora kernel.
I really enjoy using Mousepad for my programming. A lot of you might stare at me for a second, but I really do like it. I do use Medit from time to time for it's tabbed interface and syntax highlighting. I know Mousepad doesn't have syntax highlighting but I figure if I know how to program without relying on the colors, then I can understand the structure and dynamics of a programming language's syntax.how can I change the indent size on Mousepad? It seems to be at 8 and that seems like too much of an indent. When I have to go over to my Windows machine, my indent size is 4 there on Notepad++, as is Medit here on Linux.
I have been using ubuntu 10.04 for a couple of months. But recently facing a mouse related problem. In my laptop HP Pavillion DV7 last week I added the mouse for some work and after finishing it I removed it. But after that my laptops sensor stopped working whenever I login. wht I mean is now at the login prompt the laptops mousepad works fine but after I press login the pointer gets freeze and doesn't work at all. Then I created another user and with that user its working perfectly. Why this weird problem is happening s it because I connected the mouse in my laptop or some thing else
I recently purchased a new Sony Vaio laptop for my sister and convinced her to try Ubuntu. I am now trying to install Ubuntu 10.10, alongside pre-installed Windows 7.I am installing through the Live CD. When I boot using the live cd, it takes me to the ubuntu desktop as usual but the mousepad is not working at all. I used keyboard to navigate and click the install Ubuntu icon. However in the step where you are required to specify partitions, I can not specify the size ofifferent partitions ad the mouespad is not working and hence, I can not use the slider.How should I now proceed with installation. Could it be some driver related issues. If Ubuntu was installed, I could have installed drivers or tried solutions as suggested in some other threads (changing some config files etc.). But how to proceed in Live CD.
I recently downloaded the Lucid ISO from the ubuntu torrents and installed it toa usb drive using Unetbootin. I restart my computer, use the bios setup to boot from usb, I boot, but when the system starts, I can't use the touchpad. the model is a synaptic touchpad
