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?

Applications :: Automated Install Of 30 Applications Across Multiple Distributions?

Jun 15, 2010

I'm setting up a large number of virtual machines, each with a basic set of about 30 applications. Obviously, I don't want to do everything manually so I'm looking for ways to automate this process. Multiple distributions (Ubuntu, Red Hat Ent., FreeBSD, CentOS, etc.) will be used, meaning I will have a few Ubuntu installs with the basic set of 30 applications, and multiple Red Hat installs with the same set, etc. So, I'm looking for advice on automating as much of this as I can, even if it means a new form of automation for each distro.

Software :: Menu Bar Tags Blank In Various Applications After Ubuntu Install

Jan 12, 2009

I installed Ubuntu recently and all generally went well except the menu bar tags in various applications like OpenOffice are blank. The bar itself has blanks(__) where 'File' and 'Edit', etc, would otherwise be. If I click on the blank, the drop down menu shows the various icons with the names blanked after it...makes it really difficult to work with unless you've memorized all of the icons. I suspect some software library was not installed or improperly installed originally on the Ubuntu install but I don't know what it would be.

Ubuntu :: Applications Menu Failing To Install Properly With Synaptic Package Manager

May 29, 2010

Ubuntu 10.01 Lucid I had a few problems with applications failing to install properly with Synaptic Package Manager which resulted in a slew of launchers in my Applications > Other folder which all delivered error messages. These all had some kind of grey screen icon. I deleted them after uninstalling the applications which failed to install (wine 1.2, wine-gecko 1.2, then later wine 1.0, Wine-gecko 1.0, and winetricks.) I didn't notice that some non-wine applications also were given the grey-screen icon, and accidentally deleted "Archive Mounter." I know that I only deleted the launcher not the application, but don't know how to re-create the launcher in the Applications menu. Would someone...

1 - Right-click on the Applications panel,
2 - Select Edit Menus
3 - Find "Archive Mounter" (probably in "Other" folder)
4 - Select Properties for the launcher, look at the Properties sheet and tell me what the Archive Mounter command is, so I can re-create the launcher manually? And if you could, the path to the icon too

Ubuntu :: Installed Applications Don't Show Up?

Aug 1, 2009

I've recently tried to install various well known programs however they do not show up anywhere. Even in the home folder they do not show up. It's like they were never installed, but I know for a fact I watched them being installed in the terminal and everything. The application I am most concerned with is ies4linux(mainly because its in the way of my WoW playing). I did the whole cabextract (already have wine) and downloaded the ies4linux file.It runs the installer for it, however it doesn't show in the applications or home folder.

OpenSUSE :: Taskbar Does Not Show Applications?

Oct 7, 2010

Often I open FireFox, get information, which I want to save in an OpenOffice Writer or Calc file.So I go to the left lower corner on the screen, tap on Computer, and then on OpenOffice Writer.When the OpenOffice window has opened, I do not see, as I used to do, the FireFox button on the taskbar (or panel), I have to drag the OpenOffice window, so I can access my FireFox window. When I do that, the OO window bounces, which makes me feel rather sea-sick.Is there a way to have the button for the open applications visible on the task bar (or panel) so that I can go immediately to the other open application ?

Ubuntu ::show Only Applications Running On Active Workspace In Launcher?

Mar 1, 2011

I'm used to use several workspaces (6) for completly different tasks. In the netbook edition, the merged launcher/taskbar shows always ALL programs running on all workspaces. I don't like it, because it becomes confusing to have too many symbols from every workspace, even when on the active one only a few applications run. So is there a way to hide application symbols for applications which don't run on the active workspace?

Software :: Get Installed Applications List And Applications Activity

May 25, 2009

Is there a programmatic way to get the list of all installed applications on Linux.

Also, how can we get the application activities in Linux OS like running applications name, time of day when they started, duration till the applications were running on system, application version etc.

Is there a way to do this in C/C++.

I am building an app that runs like a daemon and fetches the applications status and sends it to the network admin for him to monitor the application usage pattern on the user computers in the network.

I've installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop using WUBI to preserve my Windows XP installation. I plan to use it for work so have installed our VPN client and a desktop sharing application through a .sh script and a .deb package respectively. The Applications Menu was updated with the submenu and icons for the new applications and I copied thm to the desktop as well. However when I log out and log back in again my menus and desktop have reverted back to what they were before, and my icons have disappeared.

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.

Ubuntu :: Put A Script Of Mine In The Applications Menu?

Jan 30, 2010

I want to put a script of mine in the applications menu , so that when I click on it , it executes itself ...so I created a new application by the name myapplication.desktop in /usr/share/applications/ . But when in GUI mode I traverse down to this directory and click on myapplication.desktop . It gives me an error "myapplication.desktop is not a directory". The crazy part is that when I run it using the terminal freedom@freedom-laptop: /usr/share/applications$ myapplication it runs perfectly well. I can't understand the problem...the script is correct , but I don't know about the error saying "it is not a directory" as all the other files in there are also files and they do run even in graphical mode .

Ubuntu :: Remove Applications From Message Menu?

Jul 17, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04.
Upgraded 8.04 -> 8.10 -> 9.04 -> 9.10 -> 10.04

If I'm perfectly honest, I really don't like the "messaging menu". I don't like the way it's a single point that lumps all sorts of messages together. From a socialite's perspective, I'm sure it's awesome... from a more business orientated perspective, it's cumbersom - the icon is green, does that mean I have an important email, a new post has popped up on my RSS feed (via Liferea), or is it just Bob saying "Hi" in Empathy... I won't know until I click it I would rather have separate notification icons for the individual applications, just like it used to be. Now, I know how to remove application from the Messaging Menu... or at least I thought I did.

I just tried removing 'gwibber' from /usr/share/indicators/messages/applications I have stopped using Empathy (I have used Pidgin/GAIM for a lot longer and I'm stuck in my ways ), so that's gone. I have removed the PPA version of Liferea that had Message Menu integration, so that's gone. I have removed Evolution as I use (and have done so for ~10 years) ClawsMail, so that's gone. The last thing I want to get rid of is Gwibber. I like Gwibber, I just don't want it in the Messaging Menu.
