Ubuntu Installation :: Gnome Nautilus Menu -- Stopped Working?

Sep 16, 2010

My system (ubuntu studio 9.10, 32bit) was working just great. Then I installed dropbox via synaptic -- and it worked just great.Then I got some very strange behavior in how my tabs (firefox) worked, and the windows on the system would no longer respond.I restarted.... and the behavior got worse.. my menu would not show up, and when I opened dropbox -- the windows would not move, their menu(s) did not work, and I could not close them.

I tried to:
-- reinstall gnome
-- reinstall nautilus

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Stopped Working In 9.10?

Aug 23, 2010

I got a call from a friend who did the distrubution upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10 and all was well for about 2 weeks and then his desktop icons disappeared. He kept running it that way and never looked for help until a couple of days ago he tried to plug in a card reader to get some pictures from his camera and nothing happened. that was when he discovered that he couldn't run Nautilus at all. I had him purge nautilus and reinstall it but then he couldn't even log in to Ubuntu. Very strange indeed. Anyone else experience this? After going over all the settings and finding them what they should be, I just installed 10.04 and all is well except that he lost a few photos.

Fedora :: Places Menu In Gnome Opens Dolphin (KDE) Instead Of Nautilus

Feb 26, 2010

I'm having a strange problem in my gnome installation. I have about a dozen window managers installed, and just to test the new KDE 4.4 update I used kde for one day (use gnome mostly) and now the gnome places menu opens up the kde file manager dolphin instead of nautilus. How can I change it. It doesn't even appear in the edit menus item on right clicking the menu.

Ubuntu :: Places Menu Links Stopped Working Correctly?

Mar 7, 2011

When I click "Places" in the top gnome panel of Maverick, then click any link such as "Home" or "Desktop" (or any bookmark) Movie Player opens (instead of Nautilus)! This started today. I have rebooted twice, but that didn't help (no surprise--this isn't Windows).


$ cat /usr/share/applications/defaults.list

Debian :: Jessie - Zsh In Tmux / Tab Menu Selection Stopped Working

Jun 29, 2015

I installed Jessie (8.1.0) and encountered a problem which is non-existent in Wheezy (7.8.0).

My shell is zsh and I use tmux both installed from packages, I use this zsh feature that when you type "ls /" and then hit "Tab" twice, it will present you a menu where you can select the directory you want navigating the menu with the arrow keys. It works fine out of tmux (in bare shell) but stopped working inside a tmux session. In bare shell you hit Tab twice and get into the menu, in tmux you hit Tab twice and it displays the table of suggestions but just keeps cycling suggestions (cycling directory names) and not sending me to the menu.

Here's some screenshots:

1) Working (no tmux): I hit tab twice and got in the menu.

2) Not working (in tmux): I hit tab twice and it just cycled directory names after "/"

t isn't in my config file, I tried without my .tmux.conf (with tmux set to default settings) and it still had no effect.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Stopped Working Under Gnome In Lucid?

Oct 9, 2010

I've been running Ubuntu Lucid for six months now without problems. Last night my keyboard suddenly stopped working in any applications under Gnome. Rebooting didn't help. Mouse still works fine.But the keyboard still works fine when typing in my password, and if I start KDE instead it also works OK. So it doesn't seem to be hardware failure.I see from googling that others have had similar problems, but most seem to have been on installation, and involved either VMWare or USB keyboards. I'm not using either of those.When it broke I was trying to build PyCairo into an alternative installation of Python2.5, don't know if this is relevant, if some key package got somehow corrupted.

Ubuntu Installation :: Gnome Menu "Places" Not Working In 10.04

May 2, 2010

I just upgraded from 8.04 to 10.04. Almost everything works great. However the gnome menu "Places" home folder. home .documents, music, pictures and videos does not open up Nautilus. I get the error "Could not open location 'file:///home/tom'" This should be an easy fix but I am lost. I also am having an issue with Alt-F2 not opening up the run command. I might be having an issue with key board layout.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Has Suddenly Stopped Working In Gnome - Mouse Still Works

Jun 16, 2010

My keyboard has suddenly stopped working in Gnome (Ubuntu 10.4 LTS, Toshiba satellite laptop, P300). It works fine to logon, and with KDE.

The last thing I did before it stopped working was to hold down a shift key for too long, while I was thinking about what I wanted to do. The 'sticky keys' prompt popped up, which I killed. After that the keyboard has died - in *all* applications (e.g. gedit, terminal etc.)

The mouse still works. If I logout of Gnome, it comes alive again to type in the logon password. I had a look in messages, but without any enlightenment.

OpenSUSE :: Gnome Desktop Effects Stopped Working On Nvidia In 11.3

Sep 16, 2010

I have a notebook with an Nvidia Quadro NVS 130M. Desktop effects were working on OpenSUSE 11.2. Last week I upgraded to OpenSUSE 11.3, and now desktop effects do not work. When I try to enable them, a box pops up that says something like "desktop effects are not supported on your hardware / configuration. Do you want to try anyway?". If I "try anyway", it does NOT work - I get a jumbled screen that is mostly black, but sometimes objects appear when I mouse over them.

I have the proprietary nvidia drivers (version 256.53) loaded and working (nvidia kernel module loaded, Nvidia splash screen on X server startup, correct lines found in Xorg.0.log).

The Composite option is enabled:

Never-the-less, I still cannot enable the desktop effects.

OpenSUSE :: Desktop Effects Stopped Working After Recent Upgrades - 11.1, Gnome

May 25, 2010

OpenSuSE 11.1 updated on Saturday to all of the latest patches and stuff. I was a bit behind, so quite a few things got updated. Most of them probably don't matter for this problem.

Prior to Saturday, desktop effects were working fine. After, they don't. Gnome still works ok, but attempting to go in to the "Desktop Effects" configuration just hangs for a minute (spinning "wheel" cursor) then nothing happens ("arrow" cursor returns).

Looking at things via "ps ax" I can see that clicking on "Desktop Effects" starts process(/usr/bin/python /usr/bin/simple-ccsm).

Running this from a CLI produces:

After which nothing happens and I have to hunt down the PID and kill it.

Searching for this "tuple index out of range" error, I found a couple of 2008 references, but those are for much older version so I'm thinking that they're probably not relevant. Nothing else seems to apply.

Ubuntu :: Menu Editors Not Working In Natty KDE & Gnome?

May 6, 2011

I installed Ubuntu Gnome fresh yesterday. I quickly decided Unity wasn't to my taste, especially when I seemed to hose it by trying to customize my compiz settings with ccsm (don't mess with compiz if you use Unity in any way). Anywho, I retreated to standard Gnome and also installed KDE. Mostly OK, but I noticed neither of the menu editors are working properly. When I install an application from the repositories it creates a proper menu entry, but when I install a Wine application nothing appears in the menu. Attempting to edit, add, or delete menu entries with the Gnome menu editor doesn't work. Hitting the New or Properties buttons produces no effect. Using the KDE menu editor from the Classic (non-slab) menu is likewise unsatisfactory. I can add or modify entries and apparently save them but nothing appears in the menu and when I re-open the menu editor my entries are not there. I can manually create application shortcuts on the desktop or on the Gnome panel, but I can't add those to the KDE Quick Launch bar in the panel (I think that's what its called, I'm in Gnome now).

General :: In Nautilus Show Context Menu On Focused File When Press Menu Key?

Apr 11, 2011

In Windows Explorer, if a file is focused, press Menu Key on keyboard, context menu will show on top of the file. But in Nautilus, the same action shows context menu where the mouse cursor is. That's a bit annoying. Is there anyway to make it work like Windows?

Ubuntu Installation :: Evolution Mail Stopped Working?

Aug 11, 2010

Evolution e-mail has stopped working. Un-installed everything evolution using Synaptic and re-installed. No change: address book comes up but mail, calendar etc do not work. Clicking on any causes gray out and leads to a force quit. So how do I un-install evolution completely and then re-install as a completely fresh install. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot Stopped Working

Aug 17, 2010

I'm a huge fan of Linux (although still a noob) but require Windows for work. I have a laptop for work on which I was dual-booting XP and Ubuntu. After a few boots, XP will no longer start. Originally the notebook had a windows partition and a Dell Recovery partition. I used gparted to carve out a partition for Ubuntu from the windows space and I made a dedicated GRUB partition right in the front of the disk because my BIOS couldn't boot from LBAs.

Now, the computer boots into grub. From their I can either load the ubuntu kernel from its partition or I can chainload to the ubuntu partition which loads the local copy of grub. I even went so far as to make entries in the menu.lst files so that you can navigate back and forth between grub on the boot partition and grub on the ubuntu partition. On the boot partitions grub, I also made an entry to chainload windows from its partition. And then I edited the boot.ini in Windows to allow me to go back to the grub menu on the boot partition. (I need to create a bin image of the boot sector for that)

Anyway, I followed lots of instructions that I cobbled together from googling. Everything was working fine for a few days. Seemed I could move back and forth between "boot grub", "ubuntu grub", and windows bootloader. Both OS's were working fine. Then, somehow, XP stopped working. I tried using super grub disk, but this only gets me into Ubuntu. Basically, Grub sets the root to the appropriate partition, chainloads, and then thats it. Nothing. It's like theirs no IPL on the windows partition. But I used testdisk to check the partition and it has a valid bootsector. Also, I can still mount it in Ubuntu and look at my windows files. Seems like NTloader never starts but I don't get any error messages. After the grub commands echo, I get nothing.

I've also made a bootable USB key with Windows Revovery Console on it. I wanted to use it to fix the windows partition and make it bootable again. However, the recovery console never starts up. I get the blue screen of death and I think it's because it doesn't know what to make of the Ext formated partitions.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Stopped Working Entirely / Get A Clear Installation?

Apr 5, 2011

Compiz stopped working entirely recently and I've been trying to reinstall different version, nothing helped. Now when I look at synaptics, the version of the different package (compiz, ccsm, bcop...) are of different version (from 8.2 to 8.6). It tried reinstalling only from synaptics and it didn't change anything. I'm not sure that'll fix my problem, but for sure it doesn't help. Does anybody know what repos i should use to get a clear installation?

Ubuntu Installation :: XSane Stopped Working - No Device Detected

Mar 29, 2010

Recently xsane has stopped detecting my MFP (HP Deskjet F2280). My setup has not had any hardware changes and the only software changes in that time have been the periodic Synaptic updates. Before this hiccup all had been well for over a year. If I run xsane it thinks a while (10 sec?) and tells me in a little panel no devices were detected. If I run lsusb, it finds the device, but after all it is a printer/scanner and the printing function continues to be OK so this is not a surprise.

I do not know enough to understand all the lsusb output to know if anything is amiss in the detail. What is it that xsane needs so that it detects the device as a scanner? Is there a file or specific stuff in a file which I could get from an old backup or edit (carefully!) by hand? I don't need the scanning function often enough to pin down what might have done the mischief.

Ubuntu Installation :: Booting Windows XP (with Wubi) - Stopped Working

Oct 5, 2010

I had Ubuntu installed in Windows XP (with Wubi). One day my motherboard, let's just say stopped working. So, I had to replace my motherboard..., well I bought a new PC, but with the Hard Drive of the old one. When I first started it i got the same boot screen letting me choose between Ubuntu and Windows XP. Well, you can pretty much figure out that none of them worked. So, I installed Windows 7 (as the new configuration is pretty powerful). So, from the boot menu Windows XP was replaced by Windows 7 but still Ubuntu stays there and I can't figure out how to delete it.

I even tried starting Firefox from the terminal and got an error message: "(firefox-bin:3592): GLib-WARNING **: g_set_prgname() called multiple times", whatever that means.I would be willing to rip out Firefox and start all over again but I don't know how to remove the 3.6 version. I couldn't find a method in the Software Center for doing that graphically.

Fedora Installation :: Eclipse Galileo Wizards Stopped Working In F12

Nov 18, 2009

I upgraded from F11 to F12 and everything seemed to be working until I went into my Eclipse IDE. Several things stopped working, icons in the "New" sub-menu items disappeared and when I activated wizards and added items like a new text file, I was unable to complete the creation of the file. If I try to "Save-as" the file to a file named create_products.sql pressing the "OK" button does nothing. This seems to be true of all of the wizards when you try to write out the changes, nothing happens. All these wizards worked correctly under F11. The Eclipse IDE is installed in my /home/user/Application/eclipse directory and was left in tac after the upgrade. Does this mean I need to do a full install and if so will restoring my home directory just result in the same problems? [URL]. Seems that there is a problem with eclipse 3.5.1 and F12 regarding mouse click capture.
