Software :: Replicate GNOME Applications Menu In FVWM?

Oct 2, 2009

I would like to know if there is a way to replicate the contents of the GNOME Applications menu in FVWM (Without running GNOME), because it was very convenient to have it and I don't know the command-line names of some of the programs I need.Especially now I would really like to have it soon because I got VirtualBox and I don't know of any other way to start it other than that menu.

OpenSUSE :: Applications Launched From Gnome Menu Are Not Always Visible

Mar 26, 2011

I have a clean install of openSUSE 11.4 64 bit using gnome as the desktop manager. When selecting applications from the gnome menu, randomly the application will appear to not launch. However, if I click anywhere in left, upper portion of my desktop it becomes obvious that the application has launched and is not visible. For example, yast will not appear but clicking in that portion of my desktop causes various windows to appear that correspond to the different options in the yast home screen.

Ubuntu :: Add A KDE Style Search Box To Gnome "Applications" Menu?

Oct 6, 2010

In KDE the main application menu had this really nice and useful search box that I would type the name of the application and press enter to open it. Now that I changed to ubuntu with gnome, there's no search box at the Applications menu by default. And I cannot find anyway to add it anywhere.

Is there any way to add a KDE style search box to the Gnome "Applications" menu?

Ubuntu :: 90% Of The Applications Install - Last Release - Do Not Show Up Later On In Applications Menu

Jul 24, 2010

I feel shy asking this question but, 90% of the applications I install in Ubuntu (last release), do not show up later on in the applications menu, so I cant run them. I know it seems silly, but I can't find the way to handle this inconvenience. Is there a place (like Start> All programs in Windows), were I could find and run all the programs I install?

Software :: Gnome With Associated Applications For Registered File Types / Cant See Apps From "open With" Menu When Right Click To A File?

Oct 6, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 with Gnome 2.30.

I remove the applications which i don't use from main-menu. Now i can not see them from "open with" menu when i right click to a file.

Also it will be very nice if Ubuntu can show me on the "open with" menu the possibilities of applications which can open properly the file type which i want to open. I try to configure with ubuntu-tweak's "file type manager" but it is not possible to configure all of file types. I think Ubuntu's applications must to know which applications has to show for which file types. And i don't know how to do that. I need an application like this : url

I get a new user from the same OS, and i see that the same problem still there... For example many many compressed files, audio or graphic files are not associated with vlc or gimp.

I try to configure from system files of gnome but it is very complicated.

Ubuntu :: Replicate Printer Settings

Mar 19, 2011

Currently my partner is printing on my Epson Stylus Photo R265 from her XP system. I am attempting to convert her over to Lucid but every attempt so far to replicate the printer settings fails miserably.I had a look at Picasa which on first view appeared to give me exactly what I wanted being an A4 print without any border. However when I attempted to produce the final result it failed miserably, quality was wishy washy and displayed print lines across the paper.I raised the matter on the Picasa forum only to be informed that the method used by them is to forward the print to the printer. The responder assumed that it was via Cups and suggested that I look to the print settings in Ubuntu.

When I access the printer via the System settings all it gives me is connectivity details. Where should I be looking to access the settings where I can set the printing details. I am aiming to have the best photo quality on premium glossy paper and printing without borders.Is this possible to achieve ?? I have been round the houses with F-Spot, Photoprint, Shotwell etc etc. Please dont mention Gimp as it is well over my head. Surely there must be some way of setting print quality within Ubuntu. I feel that I am so near to my aim and would like to achieve it as even she who must be obeyed is getting cheesed off with windows.

Server :: Replicate 1 Table In Mysql To Different IP?

Aug 7, 2009

I have 2 servers, 1 running a web server on 1 IP address,the other server running a proxy on a different IP address. I intend to change and update the ncsa file with usernames and passwords from a mysql table.Is there a way to replicate 1 table from the webserver to the proxy server databases and then run a cronjob? The cron will simply delete unused usernames and add new ones.Is there a better way of doing this? I don't want to run the webserver on the proxy server for security and also for performance.

This may be elementary to some, and prolly should to me. Quiet awhile ago I took off wine and deleted EVERYTHING wine from my /home.

I hear wine has made some progress and don't want to format my /home partition.

Ubuntu :: Put A Script In Applications Menu?

Jan 3, 2011

I just downloaded the most recent SuperTuxKart from SourceForge. It is ready-to-run (no compiling, no making).The script that runs the whole thing contains this single line:Code:LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./bin/: bin/supertuxkartOf course, when I double-click on it, I select Run and I'm off racing Tux.But I'd like this to be in the Applications > Games menu.I tried adding a launcher and for the command I just browsed to that script and clicked OK.But when I click the launcher, nothing starts.So what to do? The script has no shebang line, do I put one in? Granted I can just create a desktop shortcut, but I'd really like it to be up there with my other games.

Fedora :: How To Best Replicate Dying Hard Disk?

Mar 10, 2011

I'm pretty sure the hard disk on my FC5 system (tells you how old it is!) is failing. It's a 500GB drive and I have a second hard disk that's 1.5TB (if I remember right) as a secondary.I would like to (ideally) just migrate everything -- settings, MBR, OS, home dirs, etc., everything -- to a different drive, take out the one that's on the fritz, and reboot the system with everything as it was...just a new hard drive.

Alternatively, I figure I could remove the old drive, move the secondary one into place as the primary, reformat it (assuming there's no data I need), and then install a fresh FC version and from there, migrate data from the old one as needed. I've done this latter method before and assuming the hard drive doesn't totally go, it should work. But I'd really RATHER have somehow a "mirror copy" of the 500GB drive that just seamlessly replaces what's currently there.

Ubuntu One :: GnuCash Data File Does Not Replicate

Jan 25, 2010

I am trying to replicate my GnuCash files between two computers. My GnuCash folder has three types of files:

* One Gzip archive file
* Many xac files (GnuCash Financial Data)
* Many log files

The xac and log files replicate with no problem. However the Gzip file does not. Without this Gzip file, GnuCash cannot makes sense of the other files.Why would this Gzip file not sync? Have others used Ubuntu One to sync their GnuCash files?
