Ubuntu :: Gconf-editor - Safe To Remove Uninstalled Program Entries?

Jul 26, 2010

Is there any risk to deleting program entries from gconf-editor? It's very busy with software I'veuninstalled, which makes it fractionally harder to find entries when I want to edit them.

Ubuntu :: Remove Gconf-Editor Entries

Oct 16, 2010

I'm having trouble removing entries in gconf-editor (GUI).

I have searched everywhere: manpages, internets, forums, can't find anything related.

Here's the situation: I installed Avant Window Navigator and it naturally created entries in gconf-editor for interface, applets etc. The thing is that when I uninstalled it the entries are still there, and yes I have deleted the corresponding folders in home/.gconf/apps. Also did a search of my filesystem for awn, avant widow navigator, avant-window-navigator etc and nothing came up. Looked in /etc, nothing. Looked in /etc/gconf, also nothing.

Debian :: How To Get Rid Of Option To Remove Uni-booting Even Though Uninstalled Program

Sep 4, 2015

So I had decided to install debian but I thought I couls do it by myself without anything which I was wrong about, because I wound up installing Debian on my C: drive/windows partition. So far nothing has been bad and I am still running windows but now my C: drive has been renamed to "Install Debian GNU/Linux" I know the name doesn't mean shit but I'm curious why every time I go to change it it auto changes back. Also now every time it boots up it asks me to choose between UNetbootin, which i uninstalled, and windows. how do i get rid of the option to remove unetbootin even though I uninstalled the program. Same with Debian I deleted everything i could find but it still changes the drive name, how to fix any of this and might there be files I haven't found where would they be located?

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Gconf-editor To Take Commands

Jul 24, 2011

I opened Alt-F2 > gconf-editor > metacity and used command_1 in keybinding_commands. The type was string and the value xterm. I then moved to global_keybindings and used run_command_1. The value was now <Control><Alt><Shift>p. Nothing happens when I press the key combination. I've tried other key combinations also. And I've tried to run root as root and as user. rebooted. Nothing happens. If I change an existing key combination it takes it immediately an xterm pops up.

Ubuntu :: Missing Gconf-editor Options?

Jan 29, 2011

I was trying to make Gnome display the date in a better format. I tried using gconf-editor as described in the thread at [URL], but I also found that apps > panel> default_setup > applets > clock had no prefs item.

Unfortunately, the solution which worked for quixote (stop running as root) didn't help me as I was running as the only account I've set up on the system, and all of the files in ~/.gconf are owned by that user.

Does anyone know what else could cause options to vanish like that? I'm running Gnome 2.32.0.

Ubuntu :: Gconf-editor Missing Ftp Entry?

May 2, 2011

For some reason my gconf-editor does not have a ftp entry. (/desktop/gnome/url-handlers/ftp)This is annoying as it sets all unknown urls to firefox. I always liked Nautilus as the default.

I tried creating a %gconf.xml file to $HOME/.gconf/desktop/gnome/url-handlers/ftp/ and still no luck.

Debian Multimedia :: Gconf-editor On Modifying The URL?

Jan 19, 2011

I use Debian Lenny and iceweasel as my browser on a gnome core desktop. I also use JFOREX (java application) for my trading platform. It works fine. The problem is when I click on portfolio statement in creates an error which states: "Error in launching web browser". I googled the error on the web and read some sites and it says that I should install gconf-editor and modify the URL handlers in order to point to iceweasel.

The problem is I am practically a noob when it comes to gnome and sadly I am not technical enough to understand the values that needs to be changed using gconf-editor.

Ubuntu :: Change The Screensaver Idle Time Via Gconf-editor?

Jan 11, 2011

I can use the gconf-editor to disable the screen-saver lock and set it to activate when its idle. But no matter what I change /apps/gnome-screensaver/idle_delay to, the ScreenSaver UI is never updated and stays at the default 5 minutes. There seems to be no link between the slider bar in the ScreenSaver Preferences and the value that lies at /apps/gnome-screensaver/idle_delay...

The reason why I'm doing it through gconf-editor is so a start-up script I have created can use gconftool-2 to alter settings for certain users on login.

Is this broken in Ubunto 10.04 or am I looking in the wrong place.

Fedora :: Is It Safe To Comment Out Old Entries In GRUB?

Aug 8, 2011

I recently installed F15 on my laptop. Earlier today I updated a little bit more than 500 different things, and then rebooted. Upon seeing the GRUB menu, I saw that one of the updates added a newer menu entry for Fedora- the newer one's version was a fraction higher than the older menu entry.Anyways, is it safe for me to comment out the old entry in /boot/grub/menu.lst?

Debian :: Package Editing / "use Editor" On An Uninstalled Pkg?

Aug 9, 2011

Go ahead a laugh but then please help me out. I want to take a look at the line by line of a package before I install it. I've downloaded it and here it sits. I tried "open with" "Geany" and got a Geany "new doc" page with nothing on it as a result. I thought an editor was what one used for this sort of thing. Again I want to see what is in it before I install it. I ran a search for "pkg edit" here on the forum net and got more than 17,000 hits. I can't wade through all of that or I'll go nuts. Manuals say something like "use editor" etc.... Nice but how do I "use editor" on an uninstalled pkg.

Ubuntu :: Remove Entries From Xfrun4

May 26, 2011

In Xubuntu, the xfrun4 dialog (alt + F2) doesn't have auto-completion for every command, only for those commands successfully called at some previous point in time. My question is: where are these entries located, and how can I remove some of them?

I'm just curious because I'd like to keep my entries uncluttered. I was experimenting earlier to see whether xfrun4 would retain an invalid command, so I tried the inexistent (so I thought) command "terminal", but lo and behold, it opened a new tab in Firefox and brought me to www.terminal.com. Now I have the useless command "terminal" saved in xfrun4, and I'd like to get rid of it.

Ubuntu :: Safe To Remove Unity?

Jun 1, 2011

So I upgraded Ubuntu and was greeted by Unity. I was unsure of it at first and figured I would give it a shot. It has failed miserably in almost every way aside from looking nice in some instances. It's slow, clunky, and was a total wreck to my efficient use of the computer. But they can't all be winners I suppose. I can see where it would be useful (since it seems more finger-friendly) on a tablet device, but I'm using a standard notebook, not a tablet.

That being said, I switched back to what is now "Ubuntu (Classic)" and have put things happily back on track. However, since I have no intentions of ever bothering with Unity again, I want to remove it - it's just wasting space. My questions are, would this be safe? Are Unity and Ubuntu entwined to the point where doing so would make future updating/upgrading a problem? If it is a problem for the future, I feel it would be easier to just change distros (Mint, OpenSUSE, or just Kubuntu) - any recommendations?

Ubuntu :: Remove Autogenerated Grub 2 Entries?

Jan 8, 2010

How can I remove entries manually that were automatically generated by grub 2? I have the scripts I need to add my entries, but I don't want the osprober to keep adding new entries. Even if I make the 30_osprober script non-executable, the entries are still there. Can I do this without "breaking the rules" and editing the grub.cfg file?
