Ubuntu :: Appearence And Security Tabs Missing In StartUp-Manager Application
May 3, 2010
I installed Startup Manager but the appearance and security tabs are missing. I really want to be able to change the resolution of the splash screen cause it looks all pixelated and I want to have the splash screen that 9.10 had.
I tried reinstalling and restarting but the issue remains. I know its somewhat functional because I am able to change the seconds that grub takes but when I try to change the resolution of the purple ubuntu startup screen it looks like it tries to change it but it fails.
"Installation for theme failed.Can't move directory over directory"permissions are read/write for all for my usr/share/themes directory. Not sure what directory it wants to move over for user installed themes though. Everything worked fine before and these themes too which are unchanged.gnome btwim also noticing a strange error when i load a theme "This theme will not look as intended because the required GTK+ theme engine is not installed"
I was want to know how can one move application tabs in KDE around the taskbar, I can do this in XFCE-taskbar, but in KDE it doesn't seem to work, I just grab it and try to move right, but it doesn't move), well, does anybody know where you can setup this? Such a simple function and no, not working?
I have a memory leak, thus, I need to run memcheck-memtest86. I run ubuntu 10.04 lucid and my GRUB is 2 (GNU GRUB 1.98-1ubuntu7). I have been told that to run it I have to, when booting the system, select it from the GRUB menu and use the OS as I usually do so memtest can show the leaks that annoy me.
Problems so far: in system-administration-startup-manager I can only see 2 tabs (boot options and advanced), while in the following webpage [URL] there are another 2 that I cannot see in my machine (security and advanced). Why does that happen? The idea is that I can configurate the boot menu with the startup manager, right? with the screenshot that I have uploaded, I have much less options. Again, why is that?
Firefox is sometimes slow opening new tabs/switching between tabs. If I click on the kickoff application launcher button, it takes a few seconds to open, and typing something in the search makes it hang up for about 20 seconds before it does the search. Clicking on an app takes 16 seconds before the menu window closes and the program begins to start. Then it takes another 30sec-1min before the app is usable. smplayer plays video with tearing.
Like right now I tried taking a screenshot, and it tells me
Error launching /usr/share/applications/kde4/ksnapshot.desktop. Either KLauncher is not running anymore, or it failed to start the application.
while the app worked fine.
I also tried running glxgears right now, and it runs but the gears don't move, and terminal states
15 frames in 19.0 seconds = 0.789 FPS XIO: fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0.0" after 48 requests (48 known processed) with 15 events remaining.
If I'm on dolphin, and I click a video to start smplayer, it takes about 1 minute for it to start.
Memory is using 1.4GB out of 3.6GB, with 0.08GB/2GB swap
Top shows an average usage of less than 10% average. Xorg is always 25%, kwin is always 10% and then rest of the apps are less than that.

When I ssh into the computer with x tunneling, the programs start up faster than being on the desktop
Most Internet users know to watch for the telltale signs of a traditional phishing attack: An e-mail that asks you to click on a link and enter your e-mail or banking credentials at the resulting Web site. But a new phishing concept that exploits user inattention and trust in browser tabs is likely to fool even the most security-conscious Web surfers.As Mozilla Firefox creative lead Aza Raskin describes it, the attack is as elegant as it is simple: A user has multiple tabs open, and surfs to a site that uses special javacript code to silently alter the contents of a tabbed page along with the information displayed on the tab itself, so that when the user switches back to that tab it appears to be the login page for a site the user normally visits.
Hello - installed 10.04 yesterday, Had previously dabbled, trying to switch over to Ubuntu full time now. Wanted to access the session manager, but when I scroll to System/Preferences, there is no entry for it, or for the startup programs manager. Also, I'm getting the following error when attempting to open the "windows" entry: Failed to execute child process "gnome-window-properties" (No such file or directory)
Did I somehow botch something in gnome which is now leading to the absence of the session manager as well as the inability to launch the "windows" manager?
just migrated to Lucid from Jaunty and noticed that the login startup screen looks more like windoze (shows all authorized users).One of the endearing security checks with Unix was that if you had access to a console you had guess both userid AND password - the system wouldn't tell you which was wrong.I feel that we have lowered security by making the list of authorized users visible on a console. Is there any way to turn it off and force users to enter both userid and password?
So I have been thinking about switching to Ubuntu 32 bit, I currently running ubuntu 10.04 64 bit, I have been using it for a couple of months and it seems a little glitchy. Is 32 bit more stable? I just pisses me off cause when I install/uninstall something sometime my desktop UI appearence will change on me. Plus the firefox 64 bit flash is out of date,unless it has changed I read they stopped making flash for FF 64 bit.
I am trying to run my tomcat 5.5 at startup.. I went to System-->Preferences-->Startup applications and entered the command to launch my script: /bin/sh /home/marco/apache-tomcat-5.5/bin/catalina.sh run
But when i restart ubuntu, my tomcat does not run and i dont know where to find the proper logs to see what happened.
how to get Vuz installed properly and running, however I would like to make it start the gui interface automatically on login/startup and minimized. I tried adding it to the SYSTEM->PREFERENCES->STARTUP APPLICATIONS as that seemed the obvious way to do it, however it does not startup automatically after I restart the system.
I am running: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Java 1.6.0_18 Sun Microsystems Inc. SWT v3555, gtk Linux v2.6.32-23-generic, i386 Vuze V188.8.131.52/4 az3
I am running Unbuntu 10.10 on a HTPC, and also XBMC. With some effort it worked ok, sounds, remote etc. Via systems>preferences I managed to add XBMC to the startup. It now starts when I start the PC. However it sort-of hijacks the PC, so the WiFi does not start among other things. Also I am no longer able to log into the desktop, so I am not able to emove XBMC from the start-up of the computer. If I exit XBMC I get to the log-in screen for the desktop, but when I log in it starts XBMC directly.
How can I remove it via the terminal? I cannot find a .config directory, any autostart, any .xsession, .xinitrc or anything else that looks like startup-script. How can I get access to my desktop again?
I have downloaded Ubuntu within windows 7, with wubi. It shows itself as Ubuntu 10.10, though I had selected 11.04, not to worry, this is for information only. I downloaded Q Cad, a drawing programme from the Ubuntu software centre and it shows in the list but I do not know how to launch it.I will have to down load some more applications and I think I will run into this wall again. I can enter CLI through Ctrl+Alt+F1 to F7 and probably do nothing more.
i updated both browsers i have and lost my secure log-in pages (no padlocks showing ) concerning different Web mail accounts.Just before i did these updates i checked an unrelated thing on-line regarding my sound card of which i kept a copy of and got this message below :
!!ALSA/HDA dmesg !!------------------ [ 12.762633] cfg80211: Calling CRDA for country: AM
I like to use Tilda in transparent mode. In Karmic I just added tilda to the startup applications and everything worked well. Now in Lucid, it starts up before Compiz and I don't get Compiz transparency. I have to quit Tilda and load it again before I get the transparency right. Is there some way to force tilda to start after Compiz? (I have tested this on several comps. it seems to hold true)
I want to launch qiv upon startup to show a series of photos in slideshow fashion (this will be the sole purpose of this particular laptop). I tried adding the command via System->Preferences->Startup Applications but this does not produce the desired result. In fact, the slide show doesn't even start.
I have an embedded PC104 application where I am trying to get my program to start automatically at power up. The program contains a graphical user interface, using an old SVGALIB (no longer supported). It works fine if I start it after log in.But when I put the path in rc.local, it will only run if I disable all the graphical stuff. The program bunts if it looks ahead and sees the call to vga_setmode(), where I set it for 480 x 640 resolution.
im building a small wallboard machine, using ubuntu 10.10 as 11.4 refuses to load correctly on any of my spare machines.but, anyway, thats not the issue, ive installed chromium-browser, and added it to the startup applications with
chromium-browser -kiosk http://wallboard where http://wallboard is the wallboard info thats being displayed.
that works, BUT the browser is opening BEHIND the top 'menu' bar, and the bottom 'task' bar, which obviously, is not what i want. how do i set it to either hide these 'bars' or open the browser in front of them like it does if i manually run the command from a terminal?
I am quite aware that one can add a startup application to the gnome session by going to System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications (Sessions). But, is there a way to achieve the same thing via the terminal? I want to know because I am writing a simple bash script that installs all of the programs I commonly use. One such program is compiz fusion with fusion-icon.And so I want to add the fusion-icon into the gnome session with my script (strictly within the terminal).
I am having a problem with a particular application not showing in the GNOME taskbar in Ubuntu 10.10 x64.The application is Novell Groupwise, a Java-based e-mail client.It does, however show when I press ALT-TAB to bring up the window switcher. It also shows in "The GNOME Panel" (desktop switcher) when it is in the foreground.All other applications correctly display in the task bar (Window List)
My application bars are all missing their menu bars. They were showing up (along with the application title) on the top panel but I ran 'nohup gnome-panel' to at least make my system partially usable (i.e. this restores the top panel and the bottom 'bar' that has the running application icons and it also restored my close/minimize/maximize buttons to my windows).
I downloaded mupen64plus from the software center the other day but I can't find it anywhere! Every other program shows up fine. I tried making a manual launcher and that failed too.... Software center says it is installed, but it simply doesn't show up!
