I recently downloaded eclipse IDE and Seamonkey, which are both currently executable files, but they do not show up under 'applications' on the top panel. Is there any way for me to change this such that they can appear under 'Applications' in any of the subcategories?
I've downloaded 4 versions of Ubuntu and Kubuntu but I've had no success in making a CD. Downloading them at the same time should not have been the problem as I've done it before. This was done after a fresh install of 9.04 Jaunty I had a problem with previous installs I have of an upgraded lucid 10.04 Could several partitions cause a file corruption, I know I had a file problem with Ubuntu one across several partitions.
I recently upgraded from fc8. I am running two nvidia NVS 285 cards with four monitors and using nvidia driver 190.53-pkg1. I have one card up and running and can edit the config file and make to other two work I just can't get all four to work together.
when I type "conky" in terminal it returns with Conky: invalid configuration file '/home/user/.conkyrc' Conky: missing text block in configuration; exiting ***** Imlib2 Developer Warning ***** : This program is calling the Imlib call: imlib_context_free(); With the parameter: context being NULL. Please fix your program. I've tried completely uninstalling, rebooting, then reinstalling, still same error?
Alright, so I followed the step by step instructions from this page: [URL]. When I downloaded the file, the file appeared on my desktop as an unknown file with the name "ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-i386". I thought this was strange because it didn't have the ".iso" after it. I tried looking for a download location for the file that would give me a .iso file, but whenever I download the file it just appears on my desktop as "ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-i386". After that, I downloaded Infra Recorder, and followed those instructions. Everything was going fine and when the progress bar hit 100%, Infra Recorder gave me some kind of error.
I can't recall exactly what it said, but it said to check the log file or something like that. I wasn't sure what to do at this point, so I tried installing Ubuntu anyway. I rebooted with the CD and it took me to the burgundy screen and it started to load, but then the installation crashed to an MS DOS screen with some gibberish that I didn't understand. Obviously the CD I wrote didn't have all of the installation files it needed. What should I do? Is there something wrong with the file that I downloaded? My computer is a Dell Vostro 200 and I am running Windows XP.
Running Ubuntu 10.04 currently. But for some reason cant seem to find what im looking for about making USB drives bootable once ive downloaded the .iso file i want. USB-creator-gtk seems to only work with the ubuntu family. ImageWriter only works with .img files? I want to play around with other linux distros from .iso. I tried makebootfat and got some errors. ill post them later if you guys think makebootfat is the way to go but i think im making it to too hard on myself.
I had been having problems with Thunderbird 3, so decided to install 22.214.171.124. I carefully cleaned out all the 3.0 files. So I downloaded it. Opened it with tar and can see that there is now a Thunderbird folder with all inside of it. But how do I make it run?
If I use "whereis" to locate the file to make it run, it says it is in /etc but i sure can't see it. There is a thunderbird file that seems to be the one in the thunderbird folder, but double clicking and mark "run" does nothing.
I've gone through some online tutorial on how to create a MAKE file and actually I don't have a complete understanding of it specifically, linking the particular compiling program to a library and also creating a share/dynamic library.
I have downloaded Fedora-12-x86_64-DVD.iso. Now I want to create a bootable USB from the downloaded ISO file. I tried with the latest version of liveusb-creator 3.9.1. I am unable to do so. It took around 3 days to download the iso file and now I cant even use it.
ERROR MESSAGE:: Fedora-12-x86_64-DVD.iso selected Verifying filesystem... Extracting live image to USB device... Wrote to device at 1 MB/sec Creating 100MB persistent overlay LiveUSB creation failed! Here is the screen shot....
I am new to ubuntu. I need to install BLUEMAN on my ubuntu 10.04. I have downloaded the file on my cell from the blueman website , its blueman.tar.gz. Furthermore I don't have any lan or wireless connection on my netbook. How to install this blueman on ubuntu on my netbook? When I transfer the file on unubtu desktop, it is detected as an archive.,,.
after the netinst finished to download the last package, one hour later the process never continues, I checked the log file and I didn't find anything suspecious, also dmesg and nothing, in fact, in the log file before checked I found that the last line was registered just a minute ago - DHCP renew IP-, so my questions are:
1. all the packages downloaded are gone?, can I restart the installation using all those packages downloaded?
2. where I can find the error or problem that cause that the installation was freezed?
3. in the case that installation needs to start from the beginning, can I use the package downloaded?
I've been using the command line music player moc for some time now & am in love with it. So, I thought it'd be nice if I can add a current track info feed to my conky display. Therefore, I have this smple script that gets the track info from mocp -i .
Code: #!/bin/sh TITLE="`mocp -i | grep 'Title:' | sed -e 's/^.*: //'`"; if [ "$TITLE" != "" ]; then ARTIST="`mocp -i | grep 'Artist:' | sed -e 's/^.*: //'`"; code....
But here comes the point. The way the track info is shown feels kind of blunt. I was wondering if something can be done either in the script or in conkyrc so that the track info is shown in a single line, moving backward at a constant speed; like you know, news channels show news strips at the bottom of the screen .
if this isnt correct place to ask my question, forum seems large and im not familiar with it yet. I would like to draw to windows with conky. I allready have an idea with launching conky ~/. config1 & conky ~/.config2 and this should work but is it possible to have 2 conky windows without launching second instance of conky ?
I'm trying to make a boot-able CD from a downloaded 10.04 (amd64) iso file. I downloaded the iso file and burned the CD according to the instructions on the ubuntu site. The CD would not boot and the only message was ISOLINUX .... then the computer shut down. Re-downloaded the iso file, re-burned CD, same result. Installed new CD drive, re-burned, same result. What I'm I missing? I'm fairly new to Linux but have been using 8.04-10.04 for about six months. I'm trying to make a boot-able Live CD so I can do a clean install on a new HD.
I am slowly rebuilding my network after a HDD crash that took out my primary development box. I installed Lucid Lynx and have things (mostly) working. The issue I am having has to do with file completion and history. I could set filec in my .cshrc file and it would work as it usually does (hit <TAB? key after typing in a couple of letters of a file name and BOOM the file auto-completes). For some reason, when I do the same thing, I get a literal TAB entered on the line. Also, if I attmept to utilize history (either the up-arrow from the keyboard I see ^[ instead of the last executed command(s).
Recently I succesfully installed conky. I managed to get a lot of things work with more or less effort but I can't make conky to display any image.Images path and permissions had been checked. Imlib2 support too but conky won't display a thing.
I downloaded gparted. i would really like to make my ubuntu partition bigger, i've got over 200 gigs of free space on my windows partition. i've played with it some and cannot seem to figure out what to do.
I recently bought an host to have a personal website and would like to create a bash script to create make a mirror copy of it and then add it to crontab to run once a week. Essentially what I want to do is to get the website by using wget -m ftp://email@example.com/mydir
Once this is done I'd like to have everything in an archive called mysite.date.tar.7z I've no experience at all of bash scripting but I guess this should be an easy task? How to make the user and password not visible ? Is there any other option better than wget? (maybe rsync it works better?)
Alright so i found a program that i downloaded to make videos with my easycap 2.0, the program is located here [URL]... i downloaded the file and its a java run file! can you get java on linux ubuntu 10.04?
I downloaded the demo of Penumbra Overture, it is a .sh file (113Mb). I can't open the file. In a terminal I ran chmod +x PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh and then sudo ./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh and I get an error "./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh: 2: Syntax error: "(" unexpected" . The quotation marks are my own. Is the file corrupted? One of my lugmates thinks it might be a shar file, but Karmic says that it is a shell script. Another friend says that it is too large to be a shell script. Here is the code:
john@john-laptop:~$ cd /home/john/00 john@john-laptop:~/00$ chmod +x PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh john@john-laptop:~/00$ sudo ./PenumbraOvertureDemo-2553.sh
