Ubuntu :: Change Default Window Manager?

Jun 14, 2010

I would like to change my default window manager to sawfish. There are many instructions on the web to install sawfish, log out, then select sawfish, then log back in. This worked for me with karmic, but I'm not seeing any way to select a window manager during the lucid log in process. (Sawfish is running fine if I start it with "killall compiz && sawfish &" during an ongoing session.)

Ubuntu :: Change Default Display Manager From Kdm To Gdm?

Sep 26, 2010

I installed 6.04 LTS on my machine and the upgraded to 8.04 LTS, and then 10.04 LTS. I was playing around with appearance settings and chose the highest level of window animation but this seemed to cause some sort of problem with gnome (the top bar of windows disappeared including minimize, maximize and close buttons). So I used command line to reinstall gnome (sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop) and this fixed the problem, but because i didnt realize what i had done to cause it i tried to do the animation settings again, which messed it up and became unfixable by using the above command, so i installed the kde desktop environment using command line and chose to use kdm as the default display manager because i thought i might have to uninstall gnome and didnt want to lose all display managers. Later on i had another idea of how to fix my gnome problem, i chose the highest level of animation again in the appearance settings but when it asked if i wanted to keep these settings or use previous settings i chose previous which reverted back to the lowest level and the window bar came back!

Because i got this fixed i didnt want to use the kdm display manager anymore, so i modified the /etc/X11/default-display-manager file from /usr/bin/kdm to /usr/bin/gdm, at the time i didnt realize it was supposed to be sbin! so i restarted the computer and now it cant find the file for kdm or gdm because gdm is in sbin and kdm is in bin but its looking for gdm in bin. So i have been trying to use recovery boot up to edit the file, which is where my problem is: whenever i try to edit the /etc/X11/default-display-manager file to read /usr/sbin/gdm, it displays that i do not have write permissions and that it is a read only file. I have used sudo with every command, and tried nano and vi text editors.Long story short I need to edit the /etc/X11/default-display-manager file to read /usr/sbin/gdm but it will not let me due to "write permissions" even when im using root and sudo;

Ubuntu :: Change The Default File Manager In GNOME?

Dec 13, 2010

How can I change the default file manager in GNOME? I've got these notes but neither methods work:

Change under 'Session control' in 'Ubuntu Tweak'
Delete nautilus and type in pcmanfm or another file manager such as thunar
Quit ubuntu-tweak



gksu gedit /usr/share/applications/nautilus-folder-*handler.desktop

Then replace 'nautilus --no-desktop %U' to whatever you like. Example: pcmanfm %U

Save, logout & login

Update: This works. Why does the Ubuntu Tweak method not work though?


sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/nautilus-folder-*handler.desktop

Fedora :: Photo Resizing Directly From File Manager?

Jun 6, 2010

I'm using F11, KDE, and Dolphin (primarily) as the file viewer. Is there any quick and easy way to be viewing a giant folder of images in the file viewer and then just highlight a few that you want to resize to 800x600 (or whatever)? Currently I have to pull them into GIMP and then resize each one. Alternatively, I can pretty easily do a command line to resize the whole folder, but I don't really need every image resized. I'm mainly going through and thinking "oh, be fun to send this one to so and so" but I don't want to send them the eitire 18Megapixel image. A nice quick resize to 50Kb and 800x600 or something would be perfect but this just hasn't appeared for me yet.

General :: Photo Manager To Import From Scanner Or Camera

Feb 12, 2011

I need to be able to open a photo manager and scan directly from within the program without opening a separate app. Is there one that does? I just installed Mint on my daughters laptop. Wow! I'm impressed. I tried a some Linux distros a few years ago and although I liked the idea, I just couldn't find one that impressed me. Things have changed since then! I tried 2 or 3 distros this past week and they all beat the pants off any version of Win... that I've used. I'm so impressed that I am now considering installing on my machine if I can find software replacements. If not, I may still do it and run Virtualbox when I need to. I need to start with the photo manager.

Software :: Photo Manager That Remembers Pix On External Drive?

Apr 17, 2010

I run Linux Mint and keep 38,000 photos on an external usb hard drive. Problem is, neither Picasa 3 or DigiKam will "remember" the photos if I unplug the drive. When I run Picasa/DigiKam again, it reindexes all 38,000 pics, which of course takes forever.

Ubuntu :: How To Set Default Window Manager

Mar 25, 2011

I have a pretty vanilla install of Ubuntu Lucid. I would like to change my default WM to sawfish. I have it installed, and it works routinely, I would just like to have it start automatically on log-in, rather than Lucid. A few sources have suggested that the way to do this is during log-in. They refer to a "session" I could choose, which would allow me to set the WM. I remember doing this in the past, but can't find such an option on the login page, now.

I have also experimented with changing .gconf/desktop/gnome/applications/window_manager/ using both gconf-editor and emacs. However, when I change "/usr/bin/compiz" to "/usr/bin/sawfish", log out, and log back in, I find that compiz starts anyway, and the setting in that file has been restored to compiz. Clearly, the gconf mechanism is getting the information from some other source.

Ubuntu :: Set Default Applications In PCMan File Manager?

Feb 3, 2010

I have tried to make my own buntu running LXDE as the desktop environment though it is running smoothly on an old laptop it has a certain problem.

I have installed PCMan File Manager as the default file manager for the LXDE and not Thunar or Dolphin, but, I have a problem with opening files from there. The default application set to open all file types is the Terminal.

What I currently do to open the file is right click and choose "Open with.." to open the file in the appropriate application. Is there a way to set the default applications?

I have Ubuntu 9.10 from minimal CD install then got LXDE and installed the following applications aside from the applications that came with LXDE:

-OpenOffice.org suite
-Mozilla Firefox
-Google Picasa
-VLC Player

Ubuntu Networking :: Reset Network Manager To Default?

Oct 23, 2010

I seem to have somehow mangled my my Ethernet and wireless's connection to the outside world on my Ubuntu 10.04.1 machine. I was trying to get a static local IP, and that worked great for a few days, until I lost all Internet access completely. However, I can connect to my router on my wired connection - but not the wireless.

You can see what I did here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1600784

Now, I just want everything to work as it did when I installed Ubuntu 2 months ago. How can I reset Network manager back so that it just works? I realise that don't need a static IP, it can only be 2 IPs, as I have 2 PCs only.

Or is there some better way to manage my networks? I'm not the best when it comes to those.

Ubuntu :: Get Gnome-shell To Be My Default Windows Manager?

Nov 30, 2010

I want to make gnome shell my default window manager. I have it installed, and can get it to run from the terminal with gnome-shell --replace.
the effects aren't permanent though. I tried setting gnome-shell to be a start up application but this hasn't worked. I dont want to remove compiz or metacity before knowing if I can get gnome-shell to run by default somehow.

So, how can I get gnome-shell to be my default windows manager?
