Ubuntu Installation :: How To Add Item To System > Administration Menu
Jun 20, 2010
I just upgraded my Ubuntu 9.10 to Ubuntu 10.04. Part of the Ubuntu 9.10 installation was GParted (version 0.4.5) and I saw, after upgrading to Ubutnu 10.04, there was a more recent version available: 0.5.1.
After installing that version, GParted was still part of the System > Administration menu (just as it was before).
But then I saw the version 0.6.0 of GParted was recently released and there was also a .deb distro available.
After downloading and installing the 0.6.0 version of GParted, the item GParted disappeared from the System > Administration menu and appeared in another menu (Applications > System Tools).
My question: how can I get GParted back as part of the Systems > Administrations menu?
Well like the title Implies, In my Administration menu in Gnome I don't have a "Printing" option. So I can't search for/install printers right now.I'm running 10.04 Server. I installed the gnome-desktop-environment package to get a GUI up and running for manipulating the filesystem, But not all the menu's I was expecting appeared. Is this because I used the gnome-desktop-environment instead of the ubuntu-desktop-environment package? ecause I have two PC's setup next to each other. One using the ubuntu-desktop-environment, and one using the gnome-desktop-environment package and the two desktops are clearly different.All I want to know is how to add the Printers menu to my PC running the gnome-desktop-environment package. I already looked at gconf-editor and the printing menu isn't hidden or anything, it's just not there. And me being a new user to Linux, I don't know how else to get to those printer abilities without the GUI
I just upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10. I originally had installed the nvidia drivers using the bash script from nvidia's website. This time around I used the ones from synaptic. However now when I go and look in System -> Administration there are 2 entries for "NVIDIA X Server Settings". The first one has the NVIDIA logo, the other one has a grey question mark. Does anyone know why there are 2 entries and how I can remove one of them?
I've just started using Debian having previously used Ubuntu. With Ubuntu, under the System->Administration menu I get lots of options (e.g. Network Tools, Printing, Services...) to select from, but with Debian I just get Login Screen. Do I just get the one option because this is the only thing installed, or do I need to do something to enable other admin options?
simple installs of CentOS5.2 i386 on 2x Dell C640's and x86-64 on a Dell dimension 9150 resulted in the System/Administration menu offering two entries each with the name 'hardware' and the icon showing a little chip hovering over a PC. I did "add this launcher to panel" on both as an easy way of checking their properties:
The higher entry issues the command 'hwbrowser' The lower entry issues the command 'hal-device-manager'
Both have the comment "view information on the hardware on this computer". I feel the hal-device-manager entry has the wrong name, comment, and icon. I think /etc/xdg/menus/system-settings.menu is relevant.
I uninstalled my emacs package before I built the latest emacs from source and installed it. however now I see 2 emacs menu items, one of them(the old one) does nothing. how can I remove this menu item?
I installed NetBeans 5.5.1, then upgraded ubuntu and installed NetBeans 6.5.1. Finally I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 and installed NetBeans 6.8. I tried to uninstall those unwanted previous versions of NetBeans using
Code: :~$ sudo apt-get --purge remove netbeans5.5 Code: :~$ sudo apt-get --purge remove netbeans6.5 But it gives message Code: :~$ sudo apt-get --purge remove netbeans5.5 Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package netbeans5.5 is not installed, so not removed 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
The problem is there is no installed version of NetBeans 5.5.1 and 6.5.1 but there are two menu items Applications -> Programming ->NetBeans 5.5.1 Applications -> Programming ->NetBeans 6.5.1 How to remove those menu items from the system with remaining files if there is any?
just recently upgraded to 10.04. After the upgrade I noticed that certain Administration menu items are msising. I can't find the "Hardware Drivers" tool. Is there a way to reinstall to put the complete files and correct the menu items, etc.?
i am having a problem on Ubuntu 10.10. In system menu, there is no Administration or Preferences menu.Also, application menu does not show anything. I am using Ubuntu since 2 weeks and still not used to to the terminal commands for running applications and admin tools.
one more thing.When i booted my PC today it reported an error and process terminated before reaching the login window. So i restarted and chose recovery mode. it also reported some errors and tried to fix the problem. it deleted some files i think. and my system is working again but with above mentioned problem.
I just recently upgraded to Natty Narwhal and I cant seem to find the System menu. i understand that things have changed cause of the new interface. Where can i find System->Administration. If its not available whats the equivalent?
Could not download all repository indexes. The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.
I am dual booting Windows 7 sda1 and Ubuntu 9.10 on one hard drive. The second hard drive is data only. My grub menu shows at the end of the menu
Windows 7 sda1 Windows 7 sdb1
I think this is because I had a bad "A" drive that I just replaced and before that I did a lot of changing of the mbr and grub commands. So there must be something on the "B" or second drive that is causing this. Right now everything is fine with my computer and this is just house keeping. I would like to delete the "Windows 7 sdb1" menu Item if possible. Just to be clear, windows boots with the sda1 command (first menu Item), and the "windows 7 sdb1" does nothing at all.
I'm looking for a way from the terminal to remove certain menu items from the System | Administration for certain users. I'm working with a CyberCafe style application so user accounts come and go and I wanted to see if I can set it up that after an account is created that it will do some customisations.
I've found examples of adding menu items but nothing specific to removing via the terminal.
I think I may already know the answer to this. The Alacarte application simply manages the XML in the settings.menu to hide menu items and that if I want to do any customisations from the terminal I will need to play with this XML file to hide things.
I'd like the customisation per user rather than a blanket removal for all users
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 and I can't seem to find the printer administration tool, it's not located in System->Administration->Printer or anywhere else on the menu. I've checked the menu editor and it's not shown there either.
Just recently after update Squeeze, Adobe and Google chrome disappeared from my gnome main menu, and even I wanted to add them by myself, nothing worked out.
Yet another problem, I have to use EDUROAM in university, when i use Debian, with the same strength of signal, it can not make a connection, but can be very well used in Windows. I am suspecting 'Network manager'.
In my Applications - Office menu I see an item called OpenOffice.org. This item does not start anything since the OpenOffice.common program is not installed.When I try to edit the menus I don't see this item in the list, in other words I can not remove it.How can I remove the menu entry?
I've tried to create a menu shortcut to start the application by using various commands:
and I also created a sh script that essentially attempts to execute the above command in a bash script so the command line states:
/home/myaccount/startnetbeans.sh (startnetbeans.sh is defined as exectuable, also tried "sh "/home/myaccount/startnetbeans.sh"') and in all cases when this menu item is select it does absolutely nothing.
If I try any of these options from a terminal windows they work fine. Why the difference?
Installed the 64 bit version of Fedora 13. I can't log in on the graphical login with root. I can with the user I created.I can su to root after that in a terminal. Unable to locate the Administration menu but it's not where its suppose to be. yum gives me a error "refresh-packagekit" can't be imported
