Apr 29, 2010

I try to configure mouse click interval since a single click is recognized as double click by doing it from KDE mouse configuration in system settings; but my attempt doesn't work even (I set the click interval to 2 sec, but doesn't change anything). What is the best way to do this in slackware?

Ubuntu :: Service Menu (Right Click In Dolphin) Trashed With Multiple Entries

May 2, 2011

In Dolphin, when right clicking for context menu, my "Open with" list is trashed with multiple entries, that also contain old applications that I no longer have (or even had?). Just for example: for pdfs I have 3 Acrobat Readers, 2 FoxitReaders, 2 okulars, 2 GIMPs (?) etc. Same for other file types. How to clean it? I absolutely don't mind wiping it completely, so that it all goes back to default values. Configuring it anew is much better than having this list bother me every time I use a right click. I'm on 10.10 now, upgraded from 10.04. I've been using my home folder for like ever, without cleaning it, which is probably the source of the issue.

Apr 30, 2011

After I adjust my slackware and rebooted I saw a strange "rectangle" on my desktop. Please, look at the screenshots below and tell me how I should solve this problem.

I can't move it. Right-click menu on a rectangle coincides with a right-click on desktop. It does not prevent, but very annoying.

OpenSUSE :: Dolphin Services - Get Mount / Umount Option Under Right Click Services Menu

Dec 7, 2010

So I want to get mount/umount option under right click services menu. I went to Dolphin -> Settings -> Configure Dolphin -> Services -> Download New Services and from there I installed KDE CDEmu Emulator and MountISO. But neither of them is showing up in actual context menu. Neither in Dolphin -> Settings -> Configure Dolphin -> Services for that matter. I tried to install them as normal user and as a root. I went to have a peak in /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/ but they aren't there as well... It's just me or lots of things seems to be not quite working in 11.3?

Slackware :: Dolphin Keeps Freezing With KDE 4.2.3+

Jan 10, 2010

I've been ignoring this problem for about a week but its getting on my last nerve. Dolphin keeps freezing for about 20 seconds when ever I try to move or open files sometimes, It will just sit there and then once it returns it will very quickly execute my command. It seems im not the only one having this issue [url]
I still can't seem to find a fix. I'm running the most recent current BTW

Slackware :: Dolphin Crashes And Dbus

Oct 6, 2010

I am running 64-bit current. I have not identified which update started the Dolphin crashes, but it recently has been happening very often, usually within a few seconds of starting it, but not always.

Googling suggested that it might be a dbus issue, so I rolled my own package using dbus-1.4.0 and the slackbuild from the 64 bit current source.

Dolphin has been rock solid since. I noticed that there was an 'allow root globally' patch which I commented out. I am guessing that this may affect applications that I have not used yet or the issue has been fixed in version 1.4.

I have not seen any evidence that other current users have had this problem, but maybe Robby would consider an upgrade?

Slackware :: How To Run Dolphin / Konqueror As Root

Feb 25, 2010

I have been using KDE4 for some time now as a test and have noticed what at first seems to be a major omission. There is no way to run dolphin or konqueror as root. Old style KDE3 in SLackware 12 had the "root konqueror" option, (or whatever it was named in the KDE menus), but KDE4 doesn't have this. I tried adding a new menu itme in KDE4 to run dolphin as root but it had odd errors about "could not start process" and "could not to talk to klauncher" - it would not display any files from my directory. Konqueror had similar odd problems - something about klauncher and Dbus server. This is a pain as there are sometimes files I wish to move/delete which I need to be root to do and it would be nice to have a gui to do this.

Anyone got any quick ways (from KDE) of achieving this or setting up a KDE menu item to run a file manager (dolphin/konqueror) as root ? I don't always want to have to run "su -c mc" in a terminal to do admin stuff in the filesystem and I don't want to run KDE as root.

Slackware :: Access To NTFS USB Devices From Dolphin?

Aug 1, 2010

I have some problems accessing NTFS USB devices from Dolphin. If I mount by hand the device, mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/disk I can access to the disk from Dolphin. mount command reports: /dev/sdc1 on /media/disk type fuseblk (rw,allow_other,blksize=512)When the same disk is mounted through Dolphin (by clickin on the disk icon), I cannot see any content. mount command reports: /dev/sdc1 on /media/FLS-U2-300 type fuseblk suid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=512,default_permissions)root@obelix:~# As you can see, mount command reports different configurations. I suspect the extra parameters used by Dolphine causing problems but I don't know how to configure KDE to change the mount options. This problem is new to Slackware 13.1. My previous 13.0 configuration had not that problem

Slackware :: Disabling KDE Dolphin Preview And Kio_thumbnail

Oct 3, 2010

Hi everybody! I am completely stumped with KDE's Dolphin's preview policy. It started with me realizing that when as much as I mouse over an encrypted file (say, an ODS file created and encrypted with OpenOffice), KDE pops up a password prompt. The culprit identifies itself as kio_thumbnail. This is a feature so apparently useless, I would like to disable it no matter what. I know a work-around: hiding the Information panel seems to work. But I like the information panel. On top of that, the same kio_thumbnail does on occasion decide that my computer is underutilized (it feels like it happens during the idle times). It allocates my entire RAM, all 4 GiB of it, and does something fancy. It doesn't crash, however, and goes away a few minutes after I poke the computer.

I don't want a daemonized thumbnailer, is there a way to disable kio_thumbnail or make it be quiet and do nothing? I tried fooling around with Dolphin. I went into Settings / Configure Dolphin... and

1. Disabled all services,
2. Unchecked everything in General / Previews.

I did the same to Konqueror.

As far as I can tell, this had no effect whatsoever. Dolphin still previews all the files it previewed before, and still tries to preview encrypted files when Information panel is open. I am running unmodified Dolphin 1.4 on KDE 4.4.3, the same ones that came with Slackware 13.1 x64.

Slackware :: Dolphin Hang And Crash On KDE 4.5.1 - 64-current

Sep 15, 2010

Is there any Slackware-current or Slackware64-current users in the LQ Slackware forum experiencing lags or slowdown on Dolphin file manager on KDE 4.5.1? I experienced this first on KDE 4.5.0, after the current update KDE to 4.5.1 I still have this problem.

Hovering mouse on a file can take a while, opening a text file with kwrite took several seconds and dolphin window will appear blank (like hang). Sometimes Dolphin crashed when opening file, changing directory or hovering mouse on a file.

Quick googling points to this discussion at which suggest a bug in libdbus.

Slackware :: LUKS Decryption Fails In Dolphin?

Nov 25, 2010

I've just did a fresh Slackware 13.1 install on a 32-bit box for friends of mine. It's an older machine with an AMD Athlon XP 2500. Generally everything works just fine, with one exception, however.Connecting a LUKS encrypted USB harddisk is notified by KDE. Clicking on the device icon in Dolphin opens the dialog asking for the LUKS passphrase. No error message appears, but the file system is not opened and mounted, anyway.However, before another attempt I have to "remove" the device in Dolphin.Output of dmesg:

# Nov 25 23:58:24 mycomputer kernel: device-mapper: ioctl: unable to remove open device temporary-cryptsetup-3023

Slackware :: Dolphin Only Opens Samba Shares Using Server IP?

May 10, 2011

Dolphin will only open Samba shares if I open them by typing in smb://SERVER-IP. It also does not show up in the Network section of Explorer under Windows 7. How do I fix this? The only Samba share icon that shows up in Dolphin under Network --> Samba Shares is Workgroup. If I click it it changes smb://workgroup, but then it does nothing and shows no files. Here is my Samba server's smb.conf file.

workgroup = WORKGROUP

Slackware :: Reading Cdrom And External Drive In Dolphin?

Jun 12, 2010

I inserted a disc and tried to access it through Dolphin. It shows up in the directory explorer thing as a disc and with the disc name, but it has a little / thing in the bottom corner of the icon, and when I try to access it, it gives me this long error on the bottom of the file area (can't remember what all it said, something about 'harvey' and being unable to find the directory in /etc/fstab). The same thing happened with an external drive, which seemed to work fine before but now has the same problem.

Slackware :: Informed That Sftp An 'invalid Protocol' When Trying To Connect From Dolphin

May 22, 2010

I downloaded Slackware64-current to give it a try on my laptop and all went well as usual. However when trying to connect to another computer from Dolphin via sftp I was informed that sftp is an 'invalid protocol'. I can use ftp, though. Same thing happens with Konqueror. Using Konsole I can successfully start sftp, although that is not exactly what I want or need. For me, this is really a major problem as my office computer can only be accessed at home via secure shell. I need to be able to upload/download files and folders from there and from other machines. I wasn't really aware of how heavily I depend on this until now. Has anyone else run into this problem? If so, is there a fix or a workaround?

Slackware :: Dolphin Samba Share Firewall / Saying It Can't Find Any Workgroups On Local Network?

May 12, 2011

I just set up my firewall, and now I can't see any Samba workgroups. It says it can't find any workgroups on my local network, and it may be caused by a firewall. It is a firewall issue because if I disable my firewall, I can see the workgroup. What do I need to open on my firewall to see the workgroup? I am using Slackware64 13.37.

Here is how I set up my firewall.

iptables -P INPUT DROP
iptables -P FORWARD DROP
iptables -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -s -d -i lo -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p icmp -j ACCEPT
I got the commands from here url.

Ubuntu :: Mutt Not Handling Mailto: URLs / Getting Error?

Ubuntu Lucid amd64, mutt-1.5.20-7ubuntu1

I'm pretty sure the following used to work:

Now mutt exits silently with status=1. Tried setting EDITOR/VISUAL, no difference.

Edit: I had tempdir pointed at a non-existent directory in my .muttrc. Still annoying that there was no error message, but at least things are working again.

Ubuntu :: Firefox, No Sound, Mailto Broken / Thunderbird Related?

Jul 20, 2010

i have recently been having random problems with mostly firefox. the 2 most annoying problems (that work in other browsers) were: no sound on various sites, like videos and amazon mp3 previews. the mailto command would not work.

the fix is 2 part: i installed the standard release of thunderbird 3.1.1 and the firefox mailto problem is fixed. i installed the standard release of firefox 3.6.7 and sound now works fine.

additionally i have removed thunderbird, firefox and related ubuntu brandng from the package manager for the following reasons:above fixes, time and frustration involved in debug.eliminates the chronic application directory rename during updates, /usr/lib/... and softlink change in /usr/bin.allows me to keep up with t'bird and firefox security patches as they are released, i.e. immmediately.

Slackware :: Unable Tap To Click On Touchpad?

I tried putting Option "MaxTapTime" "0" in xorg.conf, but it didn't work. This is my mouse portion from xorg.conf generated from the nvidia driver from slackbuilds.

Slackware :: Gimp Blocks When Click On Rulers - 13.37

May 12, 2011

I am really happy with my Slackware installation but I encountered a problem using Gimp, I would like to know if it's just me or really the problem can be reproduced by others, here is my problem:

When I open an image or create new one if a click on the rulers and drag the mouse to create a new guide the mouse clicks seems to doesn't work, I cannot move any window but if I choose the toolbox window and press shortcut keys they select the tools, when I change to another workspace and turn back to the gimp's workspace everything works again but I couldn't create a new guide.

I am using XFCE as desktop and the proprietary NVIDIA drivers (just in case it may be a problem). The Gimp error console doesn't show anything.

Slackware :: Not Able To 'click' With Touchpad After Installing Nvidia Driver

Jan 2, 2011

After compiling the kernel and re-installing the Nvidia proprietary drivers, my touchpad has started to act strange; the cursor seems to glide a lot faster, yet more erratic and when I try to hover over an icon the cursor wont stay still, furthermore I lost the ability to 'click' on anything using just touchpad.

I have checked dmesg and Xorg.log for any clues, as well as removed everything with the exception of the card and device section from my xorg.conf. The issue has nothing to do with compiling the new kernel, as it was working perfect until I installed the Nvidia driver.
