Slackware :: Preserving Feh's LXDE Wallpaper Between Sessions?

Oct 3, 2010

I disliked LXDE's pcmanfm so much that I've switched over to feh and idesk but for the life of me I can't get feh's wallpaper setting to stay between sessions. Typing 'feh --bg-scale /usr/share/lxde/wallpapers/lxde_blue.jpg' immediately gives me what I want, but next login it's gone again. I know I have to put an entry in ~/home/pargoo/.config/openbox/ but nothing works. So far I've tried:

eval `cat $HOME/.fehbg` &
eval `cat $HOME/pargoo/.fehbg` &
eval `cat ~/.fehbg` &

Ubuntu Networking :: Ndiswrapper Works On Xubuntu, But Not During Lxde Sessions?

May 27, 2010

So I have a usb wireless adapter that I set up on my Xubuntu system, and it has been working great since. The laptop that I have Xubuntu on is kind of a POS, so I wanted to try out LXDE to see how it would fare in terms of resource usage.When logged into an LXDE session, all of the ndiswrapper settings appear to be the same, but there are no networks listed and it doesn't connect.

Debian Multimedia :: LXDE: Wallpaper Via Command Line?

Feb 20, 2010

Env: Lenny LXDE

By (first step) doing: pcmanfm --set-wallpaper /point-to-new-wallpaper, it change the configuration to the new wallpaper, then, my question is: What is the most correct way to "refresh the desktop screen" (by command line) so that the new wallpaper is then displayed.

And by (second step) doing: lxsession-logout, and choosing 'Logout', the new wallpaper is displayed after the new login. No problem here. Is there a (most correct) way to completely change the picture and activate it by command line (without user intervention)?

Slackware :: Slackware 13.1 XFCE Persistent Wallpaper

Mar 21, 2011

Slackware 13.1 XFCE. I've come across a strange problem which i've never had before on Slackware. I decided to set a desktop up for my sister. Being girls as they are she wanted to change the wallpaper. I showed her how, however when the machine is restarted the wallpaper turns back to default. In all my slack machines around here, i just simply right click on the desktop and change it. That makes it persistent throughout boots. I'm obviously missing something.

General :: Best LXDE Based Distro/distro That Supports LXDE?

Dec 15, 2010

Lubuntu is nice - but it seems the LXDE version is not as up to date as Fedora LXDE Spin or even Debian squeeze with LXDE installed. I do like Chromium on Lubuntu though... its faster and a nice touch. I am looking for a lightweight 64-bit distribution for my main laptop (it is by no means "old" or "low spec" but I like that Lubuntu starts up in like 2 secs).

LXDE version seems not to be recent (esp in 10.04 version which seems to work more stably for me - with Nvidia drivers etc)64 bit install is currently a pain - requires first install of minimal CD or alternate CD both of which required wired Ethernet, then install of lubuntu from PPA. Native 64-bit support would be nice. Linux Mint LXDE, for example, is also only 32-bit.

Debian Installation :: Preserving Partitions Switching From LMDE?

Sep 27, 2014

I'm going to move from Linux Mint (Debian Edition) to Debian on my Laptop (3 user). The current setup is LMDE-Cinnamon, with 4 partitions; /, swap, home and data. All the important data lives in data while home is used for preferences only.

Am I right in thinking that preserving the data partition is as simple as not formatting it during the installation?

And what about home? Obviously this now contains a lot of irrelevant stuff (Cinnamon settings for example) and many programs will be in different versions...
- Just keep it (after all the irrelevant stuff should not do anything bad?)? And if so how do I tell the installer to do this?
- Format and restore the relevant preferences manually from the backup?
- Format and have everybody set up their preferences as needed?

Ubuntu Installation :: Reformat And Reinstall While Preserving /home?

Mar 7, 2010

I installed Mythbuntu, got some Wine apps up and running, then discovered my Nvidia DualTV MCE won't work with Myth. So I'd like to try a different variant, either the plain vanilla Ubuntu or UbuntuStudio.Can I just use Mythbuntu to create a new partition, move /home/* to it, and then reformat and install over the original Mythbuntu partition? When I reinstall the new version, how do I tell the installation process to use /home on the other partition (without overwriting it) instead of creating a new one from scratch?

Ubuntu :: Preserving File Timestamps On NTFS Partitions

Apr 5, 2010

I'm using two NTFS formatted partitions. One is internal and holds all my data. The other is on an external hard disk and is where I back up all my data to. What I'd like to do is copy all my files from the data partition to the backup partition and preserve all the windows' timestamps (including the file creation dates).How hard can this be? Well it appears that in the case of Ubuntu the answer is very hard indeed.I'm aware that Linux does not support the concept of a file creation date natively. However, according to the ntfs-3g website, all of the windows' timestamps (including the creation date) are mapped on to the system.ntfs_times extended attribute (link). So if you preserve the extended attributes when making a copy then, in theory at least, the timestamps should also be preserved.

I read on another forum that a file's timestamps will be listed (albeit in an unreadable hex format) if you run the following command:getfattr -h -e hex -n system.ntfs_times <filename>Unfortunately however, I just cannot get it to work. With every file I've tried I simply get a message saying "no such attribute".

Ubuntu :: Preserving Multiboot Setup On Selective Reinstall?

Sep 14, 2010

I've set up a multiboot with XP, Vista, Windows 7, and Ubuntu 10.04.1, installed in that order in five individual partitions on a single hard drive (fifth is for the Ubuntu swap area). Everything is working well: On boot, the GRUB menu comes up first, with the usual Ubuntu choices and "Windows 7 (loader)". When I select that last option, I'm then given the Windows boot menu that allows "Earlier Version of Windows", "Windows 7", and "Microsoft Windows Vista". They all boot properly, and I don't mind having to use the second menu. I would like to reinstall XP (only) to the same partition it now occupies. I suspect this will mess up my current booting scheme, correct? Is there a way I can prevent this, by saving the GRUB configuration or whatever?
