Ubuntu :: Changing Default Desktop Back To Gnome?

Jun 7, 2011

Today I installed Xubuntu desktop on my normal Ubuntu, to see what it's like, and to have the option to run a more minimal desktop when I want.

My only problem is that my login screen loads with the Xubuntu theme. This wouldn't be a problem except it makes it take significantly longer to boot into Ubuntu (Gnome).

How can I change it back so that Gnome is the default, and XFCE only gets loaded if I pick it at login?

what are my options with customizing Gnome at the login screen?

OpenSUSE :: Changing Default Mail App For GNOME?

Apr 29, 2011

On my newly upgraded opensuse 11.4 with GNOME,was trying to change my default mail client. I go into Preferred Applications and under email, all it lists is Evolution. I would like to change it to my Groupwise client. Googling the problem, I found that I should be able to enter a custom command there for a new entry but there is no custom option. So I googled that problem and found that it's a bug in Gnome. I found a few ideas for workarounds but I could never get any to work

Ubuntu :: Changing The Default Live CD Desktop Appearance?

Mar 25, 2010

recently I have been trying to create the perfect custom ubuntu .iso to write to a usb drive so i could carry around a live cd version of my current desktop operating system. I have 2 problems...

1: using various tools like Remastersys, Ubuntu Customization Kit, and Ubuntu's own LiveCDCustomization tutorial I have managed to install most of the packages that I want.... Truecrypt is not in the repos and i would very much like it on my custom live cd. while in chroot i tried using wget to download it then extract and install it, but i got a 404 error so it did not seem to be connecting to the place to download it. is there a workaround to getting truecrypt to install into my extracted squashfs? would it be possible to download the packages to my desktop then copy them over to my chroot squashfs to be installed?

2: I have not been able to customize the default appearance of the desktop environment like the background, icons,colors, window border, panels, applets, and so on.... Ubuntu's tutorial states that I need to edit .xmls in /etc/gconf but i do not understand how to edit those to get what I want. LiveCD creates a new user with default settings everytime it is started so its a matter of editing the files that control the settings of a new user.

Fedora :: Changing Default File Associations In Gnome 3?

May 25, 2011

How do I change the default file associations in F15/gnome 3? My system is currently set to open .tex files with emacs. But I prefer TeXworks, and while TeXworks shows up in the "Open With" menu, it would be convenient if double-clicking on a tex file opened it in TeXworks. In gnome2, the "Open with-->Other application" option let me select the default program associated with a particular type of file, but this functionality seems to be gone in Gnome 3. Do I have to edit some config file?

Ubuntu :: 11.04 With Gnome Desktop By Default?

Mar 10, 2011

I here that 11.04 will be shipping with the Unity desktop by default. However, I prefer Gnome. I've seen the recent KDE and Unity interfaces and I don't like them. Right now I'm using Gnome under Ubuntu 10.10. Will there be a Ubuntu 11.04 with the Gnome desktop, which I think will be version 3? If there won't be, will I have to switch to another distro? I quite like Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Artifacts Left On Desktop After Switching To Awm Then Back To Gnome

Aug 13, 2010

I recently tried out the awm version of the desktop environment. When I switched back to the Gnome desktop, I found a couple of titlebar-like artifacts left on the desktop.I did some experimenting, using System Monitor and the Kill xxxx command and managed to rid myself of one of the artifacts. The remaining artifact can be taken care of by using kill xxxx comand for the gtk-window-decorator but, this basically renders window buttons useless after the command is issued.

I think I had a couple applications running at startup in Gnome desktop before I switched to awm, and they didn't start at startup when I returned to Gnome desktop, but the titlebar-like artifacts did.Is there a way to reset the state of the gtk-window-decorator in a manner that is less destructive, and which allows my desktop to be clear of this artifact?

OpenSUSE :: Change Gnome Desktop Icons Back To Previous Settings?

Jan 15, 2011

I have recently played around with Mac4lin a program to change the interface to one that resembles a Mac computer. I did not like the settings then decided to uninstall the program. It reverted to a really ugly looking gnome desktop rather than my previous settings. One thing that I don't like is that I have a foot icon on my gnome traditional menu button on the panel rather than the green ball type icon I used to have. I know it's not the end of the world that my icons do not look like it previously did, everything else is running smoothly, though I'm just more annoyed than anything else.

Ubuntu :: Clock Display Changing From UTC To CDT And Back?

Apr 6, 2011

In the clock display (Kubuntu 10.10 32-bit defaults at the lower right in the task bar) I have been having a problem. When I right click on the clock (is there a name for right-clicking when referring to both right and left handed people?) or sometimes when I just run my mouse over the clock, it changes from CDT to UTC. Doing it again reverses that. I'm speaking about the actual clock on the task bar, not the pop-up panel (tool tip?) that comes up when you roll your mouse over it.

I have both time zones selected so that I can see them in the pop-up info panel when I run the mouse over the clock for a second. But, normally, I just want the CST/CDT displayed always, in the task bar.

I've looked at all the options I could find and haven't found what I missed. It started up recently, so it was probably some setting I changed, but now can't find.

A minor problem, but annoying. Anyone? If the answer is already out there, link me up!

General :: KDE Stop Virtual Desktop Changing When Click On The Desktop?

Sep 18, 2011

I'm new to KDE and am running KDE 4.7.1 on top of Arch Linux. It's fantastic however I have one problem - virtual desktops. Yeah I know there are those "activities" things which people say replace virtual desktops and I will look into them, but for the moment I want to stick with what I know.

And it's almost set up too. In fact, it is, apart from one issue: Say I'm on desktop 3 and I click on the desktop (as in - the bit with my wallpaper, etc, not the little square in my panel) - it immediately switches to desktop 1. Got no idea why I'd want it to do that and it's bugging me.
