I try to configure mouse click interval since a single click is recognized as double click by doing it from KDE mouse configuration in system settings; but my attempt doesn't work even (I set the click interval to 2 sec, but doesn't change anything). What is the best way to do this in slackware?
I lost the pictures and music icons on the places menu. When I browse the folders from nautilus I see the icons, but when I click on the places menu I see the regular folder icon and not the special pictures icon or music icon
I'm brand new to Linux and Ubunto 10.04.On the menu bar at the top of my desktop I seem to have attracted some kind of bug!The Log Out Symbol repeats itself across almost the entire menu bar and I cannot remove it. If I remove other buttons from the menu the space is immediately replaced by more Log Out Buttons.When I hover on the icon I get the message 'Log out of this session to log in as a different user' and when I right-cllick to click on 'Remove from Panel' or 'Move' nothing happens.It is not possible to right-click on another part of the menu bar to change the Menu Properties.
In my top right corner I got all my Ubuntu appindicators that come with Ubuntu 11.04. I also have Dropbox, caffeine and screenlets. Problem is that I cant click on dropbox, caffeine, battery indicator, wlan or sound indicator until I first click on messages menu and slide over to appindicator that I need. When screenlets appindicator is not present there is no problem. Its the same when I had Jupiter installed.
I'm trying to add .desktop file for my application but I'm stuck with very strange problem.I created 48x48 icon for my program called etmmanager.png.I created .desktop file according to specifications:
Code: [Desktop Entry] X-SuSE-translate=true Categories=Application;Utility;X-SuSE-TimeUtility; Comment=ETM Manager for time logging Exec=etmmanager code....
My problem is that icon is not working in menu! I can find my program in Utilities->Time->ETM Manager and this is what I wanted, but there is no icon for the program.
It starts working if I specify absolute path in etmmanager.desktop file like Code: Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/etmmanager.png About my system - Opensuse 11.1 KDE 4.2
i have java app. i want make my Linux dedicated to that application.such that,when Linux load it start the app, start menu have Shutdown,reboot and my application luncher, only one window , desktop right-click also have the same menu-items as start-menu.
When I click the Firefox icon, normally I can maximize and minimize in the window (either top or bottom panel). This has disappeared and I am not sure why. I had installed [URL... and suddenly after deleting/cleaning it up/restoring panels I cannot see why or how I can easily maximize or minimize any panel, not just Firefox.
I have seen when people click on an icon that is on the doc, it opens up a pop up window that has application you can click on. I have Cairo Dock. With it, I can add a shortcut menu and a Stack icon. From there,I can add applications, but they have a generic *.desktop icon. Is there any way to get the same Mac effect from Cairo Dock, or maybe even a shortcut to the applications folder in Ubuntu?By the way, can someone tell me the default path to the applications folder?"
I have a Network file system that I would like to mount on demand. Is there a way (as a user, not as sudo) to make an icon om my desktop that I can click to mount and unmount. I would like the icon to be persistent - i.e., it should not go away when I unmount the share.
10.10....can't click on a desktop icon and get it to open...for example a mounted drive BUT if I right click and select open it will but none of the icons in the open drive will then open upon clicking...this is a relatively new install and it worked fine until very recently...I've swapped the mouse and moved it to another usb port.
this morning I got a bad surprise: Firefox doesn't start upon my click on its icon. Tried to uninstall and reinstall Firefox.... Even its icon disappeared from menus after reinstallation (no way to see it in the menu editor). I tried to start it from command line:
code firefox %u and got this reply from Ubuntu: GLib-WARNING **: g_set_prgname() called multiple times
I am using Chrome now but I had some useful add-ons on Firefox and wouldn't like to loose them...
When I right click on the wireless icon (the four bars, which are empty and have an X by them now). I click information about the connection, and it says "no active valid connection found" (or something like that, it's in spanish).I right clic and clic "edit connections" and it shows me five tabs: cabled, wireless, broad band, vpn, and dsl. The wireless tab is empty, there are no connections.I looked at ubuntu help, and it says to put this in terminal:Quote:sudo lshw -C networkand that it should say either "CLAIMED, UNCLAIMED, ENABLED or DISABLED"but instead it says, really fast,CPUIDPCI (sysfs)(and something else too fast to read)I put in another series of commands to the terminal to give information-- I read these on another post, that they're necessary for someone (you! I hope) to tell me what's wrong and how to fix it.
(I got these results by copying them and putting them on a USB, obviously)any ideas would be welcome!!(in non technical language if possible, I don't know much about computers, though I'm learning!)
I used to be able to open the Rhythmbox window by just clicking the Rhythmbox icon in the notification area. Now in Lucid it brings up a menu (isn't that what right click is for??) and I have to select "Show Rhythmbox", and sometimes I accidentally click on "Quit" and I have to start Rhythmbox again. It's a real PITA. Is there any way to make it the way it was before? I've looked at the Rhythmbox options and can't find anything about it. (Why do GNOME applications always have barely any options?)
I run Ubuntu 10.10, recently I got this problem. if I open more than one program, and click on icon of them on task bar to switch between them, KDE crash and restart with log in screen. now since 2-3 days this restart also happening when I ALT+TAB to switch between running programs .
Banshee will not run when I click its icon in the launcher. The little arrow appears next to it, and then nothing happens. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04. I ran it in the terminal and got this (x's inserted for username):
Code: [Info 06:10:11.264] Running Banshee 2.0.0: [Ubuntu 11.04 (linux-gnu, x86_64) @ 2011-06-28 05:39:10 UTC] [Info 06:10:12.004] Updating web proxy from GConf [Info 06:10:12.034] All services are started 0.637278
Another piece of information that may be relevant: this started happening immediately after I installed a GStreamer plugin, specifically the one for aac, xvid, mpeg2, and faad. I've since uninstalled this package, but Banshee still will not load.
I have a freshly installed ubuntu 9.10 but I can't connect wirelessly. When I click on the network icon, there are no wireless networks available. (Disabled?) And I've tried maybe activating it, but my Hardware Drivers come up empty. wireless adapter
ubuntu 10.10, Asus 1005PE netbook, not using mouse but the L-R button and the pad. Still learning linux , and as a reminder from interesting pages I always print pdf, but that is a bit long and sensitive navigation throughout screen to the File/Print menu, than select this and that. I remember seeing it long time ago (v8 or 9) adding the print command to the 3rd mouse button or right click. I'm googleing for this but not much luck, anybody can direct me to a detailed "howto" ?
just want to report "Right Mouse Click Freeze" on Ubuntu 10.10. When I click on anything with my right mouse button to open options menu it freezes and does not open menu. Sometimes when I shake my mouse left/right a bit it opens that menu, but this does not work always. It seems like xserver issue, but I'm not sure since I'm not expert in linux yet. It's very annoying issue that I would like to resolve asap.
My System Specs: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Western Digital 250 GB Hard Drive Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit (Kernel Linux 2.6.35-22) (Used Desktop Install CD)
I have configured my gnome-menu to come up on right click, and ctrl+right-click for the nautilus pop-up menu using this command
Code: xte "keydown Alt_L" && xte "key F1" && xte "keyup Alt_L" in compizconfig, and setting the button binding to button 3. I had to install a package before this, I don't remember which one though (copy & paste hehehe)
It all works great and it looks good, except for one annoying problem I didnt think of. When I'm playing a game that I need to right-click to perform an action, the menu pops up. (Think StarCraft. Right click to move) Basically what I'm asking is if there is a way to add exception to this? the menu will come up as long as it is not clicked on certain windows?
Hi, here's hoping you can help me with this minor annoyance. If I right-click on the desktop I get no menu. I recently installed Zorin, a form of Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid. In the course of 'setting up' my install, I lost this ability and, having made so many changes so rapidly, it's nigh on impossible to figure out what I did that broke my right-click.
I always accidentally release right mouse button in any right click menu, so it automatically selects one of highlighted item in this menu. It's mostly the first item, so as example, if I am watching ..... video, and I right click somewhere in the page background, then release the mouse, it makes my browser go BACK one page, because BACK is first item in right click menu in chrome... Also I would like it to make it unable to right click in right click menu to press items in the menu... In other words, right click in right click menu has the same behavior like left click, but I want to disable it. I want it just like in MS windows, where when you click with right click in right click menu it does nothing. I have so many accidents with this right click menu.
Okay,so I successfully created a right click menu in Nautilus Actions Configuration,But when I right click on a file it doesn't show that menu! I did not really create it,I just imported XML document,I clicked save when I done that,I still can't see the menus(I restarted and stuff)
