I recently downloaded eclipse IDE and Seamonkey, which are both currently executable files, but they do not show up under 'applications' on the top panel. Is there any way for me to change this such that they can appear under 'Applications' in any of the subcategories?
I am in the process of moving all my data from Windows to Ubuntu. So far everything has gone well and I am very impressed with Ubuntu and regret not doing this years ago.
One program is giving problems. It is a program called Sharescope and I pay a subscription for it and it runs in my Windows partition. I downloaded Wine and then downloaded Sharescope three times but when I click to install it comes up with the following message;
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on the last disk(s) of this archive. zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /home/johnlaptop/Downloads/SSGoldFull(3).EXE or /home/johnlaptop/Downloads/SSGoldFull(3).EXE.zip, and cannot find /home/johnlaptop/Downloads/SSGoldFull(3).EXE.ZIP, period.
I contacted Sharescope and they said it was a permission issue in Ubuntu. Is there any way to install this program or will I have to work with it in Windows?
I just downloaded with a terminal the program ClamAV. But where it is located? I don't see it in Application - accessories -etc ? neither in "Places", etc where it is? ps: the place where I found about this was here:[URL]...
As a newbie, I'll probably be asking some absurd questions. I'm running Ubuntu 9.10. I downloaded Movie Organizer 2.7.7 and installed it with WINE. Now it will not run because it needs MDAC. Is there an MDAC program available which might help? Otherwise, how can I remove this program? It is not listed under installed programs in the Ubuntu Software Center, but is under the Applications as an "other" program.
I got an HP mini 1120NR as a gift and it runs Linux software. I am not sure which version, but I think its Edubuntu and I do not know how to actually open and install a downloaded program file from the web. A specific example is Adobe flash player. It goes into a list and asks me to open it with Archvie Manager, but after that I am lost.
I switched from 9.10 to 10.10. In 9.10 there was a folder where the temporary flv ..... video files were downloaded, so I could capture them before being deleted. Now with 10.10, which is the folder? /tmp isn't, I'm watching videos but no flashxxxxx files there.
So I've downloaded a few random things using the software center but I cant seem to find them? The main one I want to access is installed but cant I find/access it. I downloaded a application finder but that hasn't helped at all? So how / where can I find them? Do I use the Terminal?
Used the ubuntu software center to download partimage-doc, then tried to find it with the search function using the word part. Three files showed up in one section but not partimage-doc. How do I find it? I want to read about the program to decide whether to download it.
I'm new to LQ and wonder what is the best way to find this post after the suggested 24 hour wait? Been using linux for most of this year and am enjoying it very much. Will dump windows completely as soon as it is possible to watch Netflix movies and read Barnes an Nobel books with linux.
I've got something or someone downloading from me, probably scraping, and i can't figure out WHAT is using all of my bandwidth, and WHERE it's coming from.I don't know what SERVICE its from (eg, is this an apache request, or DNS DOS), what FILES are being accessed (if any, eg apache requests/scrape), and what IP is requesting them.My apache logs isn't showing anything that makes me thing i'm being scrapped. I'm kinda stuck in a brain fart right now and can't remember how to track this down, but the long and short is that all of my band width is being consumed, and 1 of my CPU cores is staying maxed out ("top" says that it's the avahi service).I've shut off the following services 1 by 1 to see if any of them would cause a drop in network usage, and none of them did:
I've just got this PC with originally SLED SP1 installed. After hours, it seems that it has updated to SP2, but I'm still lost! I can't open help files, and I can't find out how to install downloaded programmes. For example, I would prefer to use Google Chrome as browser, and I can download Chrome for Linux, it shows up on the desktop, but that's it!I have no idea how to install it - it doesn't show up on "new installation.
I had been having problems with Thunderbird 3, so decided to install 188.8.131.52. I carefully cleaned out all the 3.0 files. So I downloaded it. Opened it with tar and can see that there is now a Thunderbird folder with all inside of it. But how do I make it run?
If I use "whereis" to locate the file to make it run, it says it is in /etc but i sure can't see it. There is a thunderbird file that seems to be the one in the thunderbird folder, but double clicking and mark "run" does nothing.
How do you tell rhythmbox that podcasts already downloaded outside the program are in fact podcasts? Mine are mostly just mp3 files and it doesn't seem possible to drag and drop them into the podcast section but I also can't find anything in the song properties.
after the netinst finished to download the last package, one hour later the process never continues, I checked the log file and I didn't find anything suspecious, also dmesg and nothing, in fact, in the log file before checked I found that the last line was registered just a minute ago - DHCP renew IP-, so my questions are:
1. all the packages downloaded are gone?, can I restart the installation using all those packages downloaded?
2. where I can find the error or problem that cause that the installation was freezed?
3. in the case that installation needs to start from the beginning, can I use the package downloaded?
I am getting some error when i compile cross compile "dbus-1.2.20". error Code: checking for XML_ParserCreate_MM in -lexpat... no configure: error: Could not find expat.h, check config.log for failed attempts so i downloaded te expat library sources i cross compiled. But again i am getting same error. I think i have to add "-lexpat" in LDFLAG. But i dont know how to do that.
Toshiba Satellite laptop, Ubuntu 10.04lts I installed qcad earlier today, using Software Center. Qcad didn't show up anywhere in the Applications dropdown menu. When I was running 9.04, it showed up in the Graphics sub-menu, but it's nowhere. Rebooted, nothing. It shows up as installed in the Synaptic Package Manager, but I went ahead and removed and installed it again, rebooting between each operation. (sigh) Still nothing. Now, I'm sure it's in here, but I can't find it. So, I have three questions: 1. How do I start it (or any program) using command line? 2. How do I find it using my Gnome gui, and put it in the applications menu and 3. Generally, is there a guide that will explain what I'm looking at when I open my File System directory?
