Debian Multimedia :: Current Status Of Gnome Shell?

Jul 28, 2010

I'm using Squeeze, and haven't seen an update in the Debian repo for some time. Seeing as it's due for release soon (September), can we expect some updates in the near future? I had been using Gnome Shell in Ubuntu with much success, including compiling my own. These days, I cannot afford the bandwidth, and have encountered an unknown problem [URL] under Debian Squeeze. Currently, I'm experiencing a very annoying flickering issue using the repo version which I know does not exist anymore in the current gnome development. To have at least one update now before the release date would be nice to see.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Shell Alt-tab Menu Doesn't Work?

May 14, 2011

I'm trying out gnome-shell right now and for some reason, when I use the alt-tab shortcut, it switches to the next window and then the menu immediately disappears, so I have no ability to look at the detailed menu option. This might have something to do with me having changed a lot of my keyboard shortcuts in regular gnome. For example, I use super-tab rather than mod4-tab. Also, my key to call up the shell is caps lock because my other two super keys (super and right control) are all assigned to various keyboard shortcuts.

General :: A Keyboard Shortcut For The "status Menu" In GNOME 3

Jul 17, 2011

Is there a keyboard shortcut, or can a keyboard shortcut be defined, to open the GNOME 3 "status menu" (the one in the upper right corner with your name on it that you use to log out, restart or shut down the machine)?

I want to be able to reboot or shut down the machine without using the mouse. In GNOME 2 I could do Alt+F1 and a short arrow key sequence, and now I want something similar.

Terminal is not an option - the GUI already has the necessary permissions and I want to take advantage of that, not sudo shutdown -h.

General :: Alternative To $0 In Bourne Shell?

Aug 25, 2010

I am looking for an alternative to using $0 in bourne shell. I am in the process of migrating all my production shell scripts to a new tool that will automate execution and release of "jobs" in my production system. And this tool does not like the usage of $0. Which means echo $0 or "basename $0" returns null.

OpenSUSE Install :: Configure Gnome 3 Shell In 11.3?

Feb 22, 2011

I've just installed the latest OpenSUSE 11.3 Gnome 3 Reload [and in so doing, by the way, replaced two other oses one advertised as something else but turned out to be what I regard as a poor imitatian of OpenSUSE 11.3 (and to add insult to injury it even identified itself as OpenSUSE 11.3 after install!) and the other a Linux distro more popular than OpenSUSE but failing to deliver a working Gnome 3 shell].

Which brings me to the subject at hand: Gnome 3 shell. I'm presently using the Gnome 3 panel (which I got after having to select the failsafe option after rebooting). OpenSUSE's Gnome 3 shell display is all jumbled up to the point of being unusable. Although I couldn't make out any legible print in the terminal (most of the Applications icons are recogniseable if rather tattered-looking), I had hoped I could still type in su>enter>password>enter>nvidia-xconfig>enter.

What do I do now to get a screenshot-like Gnome 3 shell display? I realize that this computer is rather resource-shabby, but I figure that if it'll run MintMenu, it should be able to run any other Gnome shell.

OpenSUSE Install :: Using Gnome-Shell Leads To CLI Login?

Mar 14, 2011

I installed 11.3 last week and eventually got nvidia drivers working. I was quite happy how most things were progressing, then the temptation to upgrade to 11.4 got too much I upgraded today (online, not dvd) and everything went well. On rebooting the desktop came up as normal and all was good. I installed nvidia and got that working ok. I then installed Gnome-Shell and couldn't figure out how to get it working. I've been using Fedora recently and the Gnome-Shell option is available at Login. I then discovered the gnome-shell --replace terminal command and I tried it. It seemed to load ok, but as I had used the terminal, when I closed the terminal it seems like compiz crashed. I lost all windows borders and nothing was usable. I REISUB'd and started again. On reboot I got a CLI login prompt. After logging in I tried startx, to no avail. I then tried gdm start and got to the desktop again (not gnome-shell). I Alt+F2'd and ran gnome-shell --replace again and all was good - except no network I rebooted again, and got the CLI again. Went through it all again and tried to configure network (wireless) no good. I then connected an ethernet cable and tried again. That worked, but I'm not sure why - I didn't think anything was downloaded. Anyway wireless now works ok - even on reboot. However I'm still getting dumped to the CLI login on restarts.

Ubuntu :: Switch Desktop Shell From Unity To Gnome-shell?

Apr 14, 2011

Is there any way I can switch my desktop shell from unity to, say, gnome-shell? I can switch using other console shell I like (bash, csh, fish, etc.). Assume that there is a stable alternative desktop shell, I should be able to choose, too.

(For console shell, we goes to /etc/passwd. But for desktop, I can't find the way to config.)

Software :: Ubuntu 10.04, No Menu Nor Status Bar

Aug 23, 2010

I have just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04LTS on a Dell Optiplex GX150, from 8.04LTS. The 8.04 has worked flawlessly on this PC, which is a secondary one. This machine is not dual boot, and the 10.04 was installed, not updated, so the HDD (300GB) was repartitioned and reformatted. 10.04 has all updates to 23Aug2010 installed.
10.04 has problems, at boot 2 msgs are displayed: error:no suitable mode found error:unknown command "terminal" At end of boot, and after entry of password the main GNOME screen is presented but without the menu bar at the top and without the status bar at the bottom. Alt-F1 will give Applications/Places/System at top left but of course no status bar to retrieve minimised apps. If restart or closedown is used a dim purple screen is presented and the caps and scroll lock keys flash and the machine freezes. The hard stop causes the "Shut Down, Restart, Suspend" etc to be presented and Shut Down will do just that.

General :: Check Status Of A Shell Script?

Aug 2, 2010

I'm running CentOS 5.5 and have created an init script. The start of the script contains:

# Source function library.
if [ -f /etc/init.d/functions ]; then
. /etc/init.d/functions

The start bit works fine, but I'm having problems with the status and stop part:

echo -n "Status of script: "
status "/bin/sh /path/to/script.sh"

In PS AUX the command appears as "/bin/sh /path/to/script.sh" and I can see the PID. But when I run:

./my_init_script status

It says the script is not running. Should I be using the /bin/sh bit, or just the full script path, or just the script filename?

The stop part of the init script utilises "killproc". Again what command should I be using to successfully kill all occurrances of the script?

OpenSUSE Install :: Gnome Menu Editing In Suse 11.2?

Dec 4, 2009

I've just installed suse 11.2 with gnome. Now I need to modify entries in the applications menu, mainly so blender starts in windowed mode. Right click on applications will let you hide an entry, not modify it. Right clicking on the suse computer menu won't even allow that. If I could find the file(s) which hold the actual data I could modify as required, but where are they?

Ubuntu :: Lightweight Alternative To Gnome-do?

Jan 8, 2011

With gnome-do, you can do things as quickly as possible (but no quicker). In a low-spec application, the 'do uses up ~16mb of ram even in idle mode, if I recall correctly. Are there any lighter alternatives to gnome-do? It's so useful - but I feel like its functionality could be even snappier.
