Ubuntu Installation :: Bring Back Gnome-app-install For Lucid?
Apr 30, 2010
I hate using Software Center. I can't pick more than one program to install at one time. It downloads only one program at a time.The downloads take longer. I'm not able to look at all available programs at once. It doesn't categorise the programs on the sidebar, but instead you have to use another icon window. Gnome-app-install was just easer to use. Anyone else feel this way?
Following lines taken from other replies in this post to make it easier to do:
-You can install gnome-app-install from this ppa repo.
I"m thinking of trying out Cairo Dock with Ubuntu for the next 2 weeks until Meerkat comes out, but if I prefer the gnome panel I'd like to bring that back. I can right click the lower task bar in Ubuntu and "remove this panel." if there is there any way I can bring it back? Also if anyone here uses Cairo Dock could you let me know your thoughts on it?
I lost boot option for Opensuse. I am sure it is still installed, only thing I want to know is how to bring the boot option back. I had duel boot option for vista and opensuse now after switching on vista starts by default and I am not having any option for choosing one of them as I had before.
How to bring Desktop back again on Fedora 15. We have developed an application that places some shortcuts on Desktop. With Desktop disappearing in Fedora 15, those shortcuts will become useless. Can we shorten the learning process in Gnome 3?
so the safest way to go about this is to assume I know nothing. I mean, I have a rough Idea of what a kernel is, no idea what a shell is, etc. I do consider myself computer savvy, but know NOTHING about linux and thats why I'm Diving in, hopefully not too much, this is just to give you an idea of what we're working with here.
After several install attempts I kept getting a blank screen. Whether it be black,white, or the default gnome desktop (without any icons, and simple things like ctrl+alt+backspace just doesn't work, or anything else for that matter) I was ending up with a blank screen. Driver for moniter....maybe....but I did succesfully install it once, and it worked like a charm...shutdown properly, and the next day after work...Boom, same thing after startup.today I started from scratch and re-installed....samething, until I hit the power button, went from the dvd(iso) and did a fail safe, now my resolution is much better than it was the first time..Actual questions.....what did I do to fix it when failsafe never worked before?
Is there a way to save these settings, so I don't run into the problem again, because I don't even want to turn of my computer at this point?If i'm trying to dive in and learn the command line actions, is there any substancial difference between gnome terminal or hitting "c" to bring up the command line?
I had a make file which deals with hundreds of thousand jpeg images. I submitted this job by using: nohup make & Is there any possible way that brings this program back to foreground? I can only use ps to monitor the status, command jobs cannot find it.
I have just upgraded to lucid and the first thing that I noticed was that the different shutdown options (Logout, Restart etc.) disappeared from the user-switch menu (at least that's how I think it is called) where they were located previously under karmic. Logout and Shutdown are placed under the System menu currently, and they work fine, but my question is how to show all (or some) of the shutdown options in the System or user menu? I dislike going through the dialog and prefer to choose my action directly from the menu.I have tried removing and readding the user-switch applet, to no avail. I tried adding menu items to both the system menu and the user menu, to no avail either
When I right click on my mp3 player it gives me the option of ejecting or safely removing. If i do either it appears too the computer as though I unplugged it even though it's still connected to the computer. Is there a way to bring back unmount so that it will still appear under places? I would really love to have that behavior back
I start a process, put it in the background running, then log out, then log in again, and want to bring the process to front again. I've looked in "ps aux" for the PID, but it won't be put in the foreground with "fg ###". What's the correct way? (I use the same account for both login sessions.)
I installed ubuntu on my lappy but due to battery life reasons and driver issues I cannot use it; must return to windows . I do not want GRUB on it but I'm stuck with it now. how do I wind the clock back?
Yesterday I upgraded my Ubuntu 10.4 to new version 11. In during installation I don't really remember which option I choose for installing Ubuntu root direction, but after installation completed computer asked for restarting. I restarted computer, and after I restarted the computer, computer should bring up Menu to choose Windows Or Linux, but this time automatically after a few second screen turn black and than Ubuntu show up. But I don't want that because I want choose Windows, and now I don't have any Idea how should I bring the Menu back.
yesterday i upgraded my Maverick Meekat 10.10 to 11.04. When i was exploring new features of Natty Narwhal i by mistake disabled Unity in CCSM. And then the Unity dockbar and top Panel disappeared and i am not getting any menu or options. Alt + F2 isn't working so i can't run CCSM to enable Unity again. However i am able to log in as Ubuntu Classic with old menus and functions. how to bring Run command? so that i can run CCSM and bring back my Unity dockbar and top Panel?
I had started a process through ssh and then i did 'cntrl+Z' and 'bg' and 'disown' before closing the ssh connection. That process kept running in the background in the other machine and now i want to bring it back to foreground in that machine. However running the command 'fg %<process_id>' is not helping. What do i DO!?
Our office housing keeping guy sat on my linux (Fedora 7) system and somehow removed the main panel. By panel I mean where all the menus are there - Applications, Places, System etc. and contains a tab for every running application. I brought back the panel but now I don't see the terminal launcher and I can't find it anywhere.It used to be there in "Applications -> System Tools -> Terminal" but now the System Tools option itself is not present there. System -> Preferences -> Look and Feel -> Main Menu. There one System option is unchecked but I can't check it and apply. I am logged in as root.
How to format hard drive (with ubuntu 10.10 maverick, 32-bit vs.) and, after it will have been formatted, bring all system settings and programs which I run know back e.g. Compiz, browsers and other (of course without installing each one of it separately)? Is it possible to copy some parts of the HD and copy it after format?I can add, that I'm using now three partitions: dev/sda1/ (with Win7 OS � 64-bit, NTFS); dev/sda3 (with ubuntu 10.10 32-bit vs.; ext3) and dev/sda4 (linux swap); dev/sda4 (NTFS for storing files).
I'm planning on going from Crunchbang 9.04 back to Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. My main concern is drivers and such. I have an Asus K40 with 4 gb ram, and Nvidia graphics cards. Last time, I had a disaster with Jaunty. The suspect is Gnome, as Crunchbang works. Is there a chance that I could have issues using the 64-bit 10.04 LTS? I need a stable system. It is going to take me a while to set up the new system so I want to make sure I'm prepared for any issues. I'm doing a clean install. I can pull up hardware types, etc, if need be later tonight.
Installation fails part way-in , prelim formating of drive is ok, Failure comes when network connection is require to continue. The Marvell 88E8056 PCI-E gigabit Lan Controller is correctly listed but network manager fails to bring it up. when I put the old F10 drive in , everything boots up , I can surf the web.
I upgraded from Karmic to Lucid (Ubuntu 10.04) a few days ago (without backing up any data first). At first everything seemed fine but yesterday three things happened:
1. All my emails and address book have disappeared in Thunderbird. When I started Thunderbird, it took me through the wizard and seems to have overwritten my profile with a new one. There is only one profile in the Thunderbird folder and it seems to contain no emails and only a new, blank address book (the small size of the folder backs this up. I searched the hard drive but found no other emails or address book files.
2. My bookmarks have disappeared from Google Chrome. Again, it seems to have created a new, blank bookmark file. The bookmark.bak file is similarly blank and when I search I can find no other bookmark files.
3. The Pictures folder (in the home folder) is now empty; suggesting that ubuntu has either overwritten the Pictures folder with a new blank folder or deleted all the files in it. Again, when I search the hard drive for jpg files, it doesn't find any of the pictures that were in the Pictures folder.
I cannot install Ubuntu 10.04, or even boot into the live CD. I'm not an expert, but I've used Ubuntu for several years, and I'm pretty sure I'm not doing anything stupid... Here's what happens when I boot with the Ubuntu 10.04 live CD: I get a purple screen with just an accessibility(?) symbol at the bottom (this lasts 15 seconds). The screen goes black, with a flashing cursor, then changes back to purple, this time with an Ubuntu logo, with 5 dots acting as a progress indicator (this lasts about 1 minute). The screen switches to standby. The CD drive continues to make noises for another minute or so, then stops.
I physically removed my graphics card (ATI Radeon HD 5770), and plugged the monitor straight into the VGA port on the motherboard. Now the CD boots up fine. I could try installing Ubuntu at this point, while my graphics card is unplugged, and then plug my graphics card back in, and see if it starts working then.
