Ubuntu :: Chromium - File Contains User Settings?

Nov 10, 2010

I have the Ubuntu font set in Chromium via the tools>>preferences>>personal stuff settings and I decided to change it to something else. However, even after hitting restore defaults and manually selecting new fonts, the font remains the Ubuntu font. I even went into System>>Preferences>>Appearance and changed the fonts there to something else just to see if it helped, but no luck.

I then did a purge via terminal with apt-get of Chromium, then reinstalled. Same result.

So where is the user file that contains these settings so I can delete it and have the program create a new file with default settings? Or is there an easier way to achieve the same result (default)?

Edit: on this machine I am on 10.04

Sep 28, 2010

I have a triboot windows suse 11.3 stable and suse 11.3 factory pc, I would like to share the browsers and email settings between the suse stable and factory, I succeed with thunderbird and firefox moving the /home/.thunderbird and /home/.mozilla in an ext3 shared partition and linking these in the respecive /homes, I found that there isn't a /home/.chromium folder, I found probably /usr/lib64/chromium could be the same as /home/.mozilla for firefox, but I don't know if is secure or can damage my system to move this in a ext3 partition and then link this to the respective /usr/lib64/chromium, /usr/lib64/chromium has root owner, root group, visible and modifiable for root and only visible for group and other.

Ubuntu :: Copy User Settings In 11.04 / Copy A User's Settings To A New User's Settings?

Sep 1, 2011

I'm looking for the easiest or cleanest way to copy a user's settings to a new user's settings. I don't need to copy any files from the original user, but setting up a home directory would be great.

If it's done at the command line, that would be just fine. I'm very familiar with working at the command line.

Ubuntu :: Advanced User Settings / 'Connect To Ethernet And Wireless' Option Of The Advanced Settings?

Aug 12, 2010

I'm trying to create a user account for my children in Ubuntu 10.04

When creating their account, I have turned off the 'Connect to ethernet and wireless' option of the Advanced Settings.

However, when I log into their accounts, they still have full access to the internet through both the wireless and ethernet connections. Is this option for some other purpose?

Is there an alternate way to limit internet access for childrens' accounts in Ubuntu? (I'm used to MS Family Safety as a filter for internet access - is there an eqivalent for Ubuntu?)

Ubuntu :: Change File Permission Settings To Force All Documents To Inherit Parent Document Settings?

Aug 21, 2011

i have a computer with 3 users on it, and a folder using samba that everyone on the network has access to. Lets say that, the folder is stored in /etc/sharedfolder. What happens is, when user1 puts a folder in it, then logs off, user 2 attempts to modify it and fails, because permission is set to 755, and they are not in the same group. (even if they were, it should still need to be 775) Anyway, my current solution is, every 5 minutes a crontab changes permission like so: chmod 777 -R /etc/sharedfiles && chown useradmin:superadmin -R /etc/sharedfiles Which works, but seeing as there is getting close to a gig in there, this is a bad solution, as it eats up the computers resources. Solutions that i think might work:

1) create a script that only changes permissions that need be changed.
2) change file permission settings to force all documents to inherit parent document settings

Ubuntu :: Chromium Application Shortcuts In Unity - Not Including Most Of Chromium's Toolbars

May 2, 2011

I often use the option in Chromium to create 'application shortcuts'. These are instances of Chromium that make a website look more like an app by not including most of Chromium's toolbars. I use it for gmail and google docs and spreadsheets and calendar. In 11.04 I have set up Desktop launchers and copied them across to the Launcher (what an odd way to add something to the launcher, why no right-click 'add launcher' option?)

The problem is that the launcher thinks all these apps are chromium (which they are really, but I would like them to be seen as separate apps). If I minimize my gmail window, a little triangle appears next to the chromium icon, not the gmail icon. To get the window back, I have to click on the Chromium icon. Clicking on the gmail icon launches a new instance of it (also tied to the Chromium icon).

Ubuntu Networking :: Run Chromium With -enable-gpu-rendering Flag Chromium's Display Looks Like It's Shattered Into Thousands Of Pieces

Dec 2, 2010

if i run chromium with --enable-gpu-rendering flag chromium's display looks like it's shattered into thousands of pieces and I can't understand a thing. This doesn't happens if I have a previous instance of chromium opened in the usual way, without any flag. In this case if I open another chromium window with the --enable-gpu-rendering flag it's display looks ok, but I can't figure out what's the problem and how could this be fixed if there's solution for it of course.

Ubuntu :: Domain User Account Not Showing On "User Settings" Panel / Way Around This

Aug 24, 2010

I recently installed likewise 6.0 on a Ubuntu 10.04 box and I was able to login as a Domain user. However my domain user account is not showing on the "User Settings" panel (I can only see locally created accounts). And if try to change login shell by typing "chsh", then it tells me user "DOMAINusername" does not exist in /etc/passwd.

Does anyone know a way around this?

Ubuntu :: One User Cannot Login Via GDM - "reset" All (X, GDM Related) Permissions/settings Of One User?

Dec 11, 2010

Is it possible "reset" all (X, GDM related) permissions/settings of one user? What would cause one specific user not to be able to log into anything via gdm/the login screen? After providing the proper password, the screen goes black and then jumps back to the login screen. No session alternative works, not even xterm or gnome failsafe. I can however log in via the console (Ctrl+Alt+F6, recovery etc). With another user I can log in via GDM just fine, and deleting and re-adding the "broken" user doesn't make any difference.

Some (maybe) relevent logs:

part of syslog:

Ubuntu :: AWN Grouping Chromium Shortcuts Under Chromium

Oct 22, 2010

I made a shortcut with chromium browser to listen.grooveshark.com. This is great as it's almost like the grooveshark VIP desktop application like this. However AWN dock groups it with other chromium windows like this:Kuvakaappaus.jpg

Is it possible to force AWN to group this specific chromium window under the Grooveshark launcher that I have in the dock? Turning off grouping does not solve this either, as it just shows grooveshark as another chromium window.

Debian :: Chromium And Thunar Use Different File Associations?

Mar 16, 2016

For some time (I don't remember exactly how long/since when, maybe since I switched to i3 window manager?) I have the problem from title.

Chromium browser uses completely different programs to open files than file browser (thunar). And most of the time thunar has associations I want. For example thunar opens PDFs with iceweasel, and chromium opens them with GIMP (!), note that I have never changed this king of settings. Until I changed it today chromium also used Baobab (I didn't even know it existed before I saw it) to open directories ("show file in directory" for downloaded files).

I know how to change for a single file type (at least for browser), but is there some way to set all file types to something sensible and keep both, browser and thunar in sync without doing all of that manually? Or at least revert it all to default?

Debian version: latest "testing" version. (I use testing because I really need up to date versions of a lot of programs)...

Ubuntu :: Can't Open User Settings As Root

Dec 15, 2010

I was trying to upgrade from Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10 and the upgrade froze half way. (I have to force the upgrade because the message to upgrade never came out in "update manager") and I had to reboot the computer and issue some commands to reconfigure everything. When the computer finally let me into gnome. I logged in as root, however when I click on SYSTEM -> ADMINISTRATION -> USERS AND GROUPS. it open but it stays shadow and Ubuntu's equivalent to the windows hourglass remains forever.

Ubuntu :: User Account Settings And Permissions?

May 8, 2011

I'd like to set up my PC so that it has one "master account" for system settings, desktop appearance, etc. And then I'd like other user accounts that read these settings so if I change the settings on the master account, those accounts follow the new settings but cannot change them. But at the same time, these accounts cannot be allowed to read to master account's personal files (documents, music, etc.) Each account would be restricted to its own home directory, as expected.

Is there any way to set something like this up or am I dreaming of the impossible?

Ubuntu Installation :: Will The 11.04 Automatic Upgrade Change Existing User Settings

May 27, 2011

However, the option to upgrade to 11.04 has recently become available in the Update Manager.

If I choose to follow this upgrade path, will my existing user settings such as nautilus shortcuts, wallpaper and other personalised settings be changed or reverted to default in any way?

Or will the upgrade execute, and leave everything looking and working exactly the same?

Debian Multimedia :: ALSA Not Memorizing User Settings

Feb 24, 2015

This is probably one of those situations easy to solve but I haven't had any success as I've been messing around with the sound handling in my system.

I found it had running ALSA, OSS and PulseAudio and ended up purging everything in the system except for ALSA. Pulse Audio, for some reason, would shut down the sound-card when I muted sound though keyboard shortcut; after that, I had to manually open the sound table and enable a master control that would always remained closed.

Now, after purging the system of the excess baggage, ALSA will not retain the settings of the user; system will always reboot with PCM sound control fully closed.

Fedora :: Display 'sleep' Ignoring User's Settings?

Aug 8, 2011

installed Fedora 14 on my desktop a couple of days ago. For the most part, it seems to be fine, but I've got a problem with the 'put display to sleep when inactive for' setting. From the desktop, I've tried going to system/preferences/power management, where I've set the display to go to sleep when inactive for 30 minutes - however, it instead goes to sleep after five minutes. The same applies whether I set it to 10m, 30m, 1hr or never.

Having looked online, someone mentioned gconf-editor as a fix to another issue, so I decided to give that a try as well. Under /apps/gnome-power-manager/timeout, I tried setting sleep_display_ac, sleep_display_battery and sleep_display_ups each to 1800 ("The amount of time in seconds before the display goes to sleep" - 30mins, by my maths) on the off-chance that the OS had incorrectly detected the power source, but the display again went to sleep after five minutes.

If it makes any difference, I'm not using a screensaver, and I think the kernel I have installed is 2.6.35.13-92.fc14.i686 (that's what's given in System Monitor). I've also tried running yum update, again just on the off-chance it'd fix something, but everything is up to date.

General :: Saving User Account Settings When Reinstalling?

Jul 30, 2010

When I reinstall my distro (MEPIS, for the last 2.5 years), making my new user account preserve all the old account's settings has always been a difficult and very messy process, especially if I have installed a new copy on another partition. (I'm doing that soon, so I have this copy as a backup until I have everything the way I want it on the new copy.) Most of my stuff gets saved, but not everything. The biggest problem is that, even if I select "preserve data in /home" in the MEPIS installer, my keyboard shortcuts become unusable (not completely erased) under odd circumstances. They're still listed in file /home/josh/kde/share/config/khotkeysrc, but they still can't be used, and I have to open hhotkeysrc and manually delete them and then reenter them in the menu editor (the K menu, by the way, gets completely overwritten).

I can't just overwrite the entire new user account with the old one; I've tried, and something goes wrong so that the new account can't be opened (probably because some important files are inaccessible--I can't tell which ones they become inaccessible).Anyway, is there a program that can preserve all the user account settings neatly for a new installation of the distro? I am supposing there is a program or at least a method, because I never hear others complaining about this problem. I probably don't know something I should know.

CentOS 5 :: Initial KDE Desktop Settings On An Existing User?

Does anyone know how to install the Default KDE Desktop settings in an existing user? I copied a user's home directory from another Linux and when I added the user using adduser on the new intallation, it did not copy any of the Desktop or other .rc/.profile settings.

Is there a script that is run by adduser, or a list somewhere of the files that are needed for KDE Desktop to work correctly? Or, do I delete or rename certain files and then, what executable do I run to get the Desktop?
