I am new to linux and bash programming. I wrote a simple hello world program.
the code:

echo hello world

but I can not run it by clicking on it.
The only way I ran it is using the terminal even after I check the is it executable box.

Do I need to add any commands to make it execute by just clicking on it?

OpenSUSE :: Double Clicking Top Of Window To Enlarge ?

Jul 28, 2010

First thing I do is double click the top of the window to enlarge it and when I do that the window enlarges correctly, but it also lunches an app like the double click lags behind to click on an app after the window enlages, im using the 64bit version.

If u dnt knw wat I mean please try it out and tell me how I can fix this, just double click a sized window to make it fullscreen and tell me wat happens.

I also would like to knw if maybe its the fact that im using the 64bit version and that its glitchy.

Ubuntu :: Double Clicking Songs Not In Rhytmbox Library Wont Play?

Jun 5, 2010

Big issue for me with rhythmbox. If I attempt to open a song in one of my folders it wont automatically play them. It will first add the song to the library. Than I have to manually find it in rhytmbox or double click it again. Hasnt it been the normal behavior in EVERY other music application to play a song by double clicking it once? Is there a way to change this setting in Rhythmbox?

General :: Installation Utilities Split Root File System

Jan 21, 2011

standard Linux installation utilities split the root file-system and the home file-system on two separate but relatively equal-sized partitions? For example, when I put fedora on an 80GB disk, it automatically gave the root file-system 32GB and home 30GB and the swap 8GB of space. However, since my home file-system has a directory with 28GB of files in it, why is my root file-system reading 100% usage? Is the home FS overlaid on top of the root FS? Is there an advantage to doing this? I just made a boot partition (50mb or so), a root partition (90% of the disk space) and a swap (4%-5% disk space).

Software :: Double Clicking On Open Office Files Leads To Very Slow Opening?

May 15, 2010

I upgraded from Kubuntu 9.10 to 10.04. It was a fresh install of kubuntu, although I did leave a windows partition on there elsewhere. Grub messed up but I fixed that with a small text edit. Anyway, when I click on a file, i.e. Open Office writer or Calc, the computer thinks about it for like 60 seconds and then finally Open Office (version 3.2.0)finishes opening the file. It also does this while saving some files. It did not do this this version 9.10 which really amazes me. I have deleted OOo and reinstalled it several times and nothing helps. All other file handling seems normal, and it is a fast newer computer with a lot of memory.

General :: Mouse Single-click Equals Double-click - Can't Select The Entire URL By Clicking

Apr 13, 2011

when i click my mouse on something, it sometimes registers as two clicks. it doesn't happen all the time, but frequently enough to be annoying. for example, when i click a videos video to pause it, it often opens into fullscreen (which you normally click twice to do). also, in the url bar of chromium, i can't select the entire url by clicking. i now need to use ctrl+a. that's also because when i try to select the url, the highlight randomly disappears.

if i have multiple windows open, my click on the first "x" of the top-most window also closes the next window. i'm on linux mint 10. it's not really important, but it drives me crazy sometimes when my mouse doesn't work the way i want it to.

Ubuntu Installation :: USB / ISO File - Freezes On Clicking Forward

Feb 25, 2011

I am trying to install on Ubuntu Netbook on my MSI Wind U123. I downloaded the latest version of Ubuntu Netbook and followed the proper directions to create an installation USB. During installation, I got up to the step where it tells me to have: atleast 2.5GB available, make sure power cord is plugged in, and that I am connected to the internet. When I click on, "Forward" to continue the installation, it just hang/freezes.

I have similar problem when trying to install JoliCloud. When installing JoliCloud, I get up to step 3, where it asks about the keyboard. When I click "Forward", it doesn't do anything, it just hangs. I tired using multiple different USB drive, and also downloaded ISO file again to ensure the file wasn't corrupted.*

Software :: Finding Disk / File Utilities For Ubuntu

Aug 21, 2010

Once more I am playing with Linux. First it was Mandrake on an 386/33 box. Then Ubuntu 8.04 on an Athlon 64 box. And now Ubuntu 10.04 on an Athlon 64 Black. In Windows, there are beaucoup utilities, such as disk cleanup, dupe file finder, et cetera. I already know to NOT defrag a Linux HDD. Is there a need for any of the more common Windows disk utilities in Linux? FWIW - If I don't run Norton Utilities, CCleaner, and Glary Utilities regularly in Win7, I endup with gigabytes (yes, gigabytes) of trash files.

General :: Launch A Terminal By Clicking On The Terminal Icon At The Top Of The Screen

Apr 22, 2010

I have a favorite REXX program called fv2. When I was a Windows user I had an icon for fv2 on the Quick Launch bar. Click that icon, and the program ran. Now, as a Linux (Ubuntu) user it is necessary to go through several steps to run fv2.

1) Launch a terminal by clicking on the terminal icon at the top of the screen. What's that area called? The GNOME panel?
2) Enter: ~/Desktop/RexxScripts
3) Enter: regina fv2

I run fv2 several times per day and would really like to have the convenience of a clickable icon.

Ubuntu :: Launch Some Programs At The Boot (in Specific Places)

Nov 11, 2010

My wish is to launch some programs (chromium, pidgin and xchat on the first virtual desktop and the terminal, the file manager and geany on the second one). I also wish them to have the same size and place than they've had the last time I used them (just to keep them always at the same place). My researches haven't been successful for the moment cause the only idea I found was lxsession-edit which doesn't do exactly what I want..

Ubuntu :: KLauncher Loses Ability To Launch Programs?

Jun 13, 2011

The problem is that KLauncher seems to periodically lose the ability to launch programs. Sometimes an error dialog pops up: "Error launching /usr/share/applications/kde4/ksysguard.desktop. Either KLauncher is not running anymore, or it failed to start the application." (I verified that KLauncher is in fact still running). Other times, the pointer icon bounces and the placeholder shows up in my task bar, but then it all goes away without any error.

There doesn't seem to be any pattern as to what's running when this happens, or how much memory is in use, or what I launch, or anything else. Sometimes, if I start closing apps that are already open, then the thing I tried to launch will start up. Other times, I have to actually log out and back in before I can get anything to start. Other than that, the desktop continues to behave normally. Nothing seems to be locked up or anything. It's very strange.

OpenSUSE :: Launch Bar Only Show Programs Open On The Current Desktop?

Apr 27, 2011

I'm using Opensuse 11.3 with KDE 4.4.4. When using the task switcher, only programs open on the current desktop are visible. I think it would be handy to have the Launch Bar work in the same fashion.

Is it possible to have the Launch Bar only show programs open on the current desktop?

Ubuntu :: Using Sed To Change Certain File Extensions?

Jun 2, 2010

I have about a hundred and fifty html files that I would like to change image file extension on from gif to png. I want to change this line:

<img src="images/robopix/web/ROBOTNAME.gif" border="0">

to this:

<img src="images/robopix/web/ROBOTNAME.png" border="0">

Trouble is that ROBOTNAME is different in each of the hundred and fifty files. To make it harder, there are other gif filenames on these pages that I do not want to change. I only want the extensions to change if the address prefix is 'images/robopix/web/'. Is there any way to do this with a quick program/sed command rather than manually editing a hundred and fifty files?

Ubuntu :: Search For Multiple File Extensions At Once In Gnome

Jan 1, 2010

Does anyone know of a way to perform a search for multiple file extensions at once in Gnome? I know that M$ Windows Explorer had this capability, but I'm just not sure how to do it in Gnome, or if it's possible. I just want to be able to perform searches for Video, Music, and Document file types, without having to perform a separate search for each file extension. Example: When doing a search for Video file types (.avi,.mp4,.mov,.wma, etc.), I would like to do one search for all files that have these file extensions, instead of doing one search for .avi files, a second search for .mp4 files, another for .mov files, etc.

Ubuntu :: RDP Extensions And Plain Text File Types

Jul 15, 2010

Basically, I have a selection of .rdp shortcuts to various machines, but they are considered the file type "plain text document (text/plain)" so if I change it to open with to tsclient, all of that file type opens with tsclient. And if I change it to gedit, all the rdp files open with gedit. Is there a way to create a custom file type dependent on the extension rdp, or is there a way to set tsclient to open by extension rather than filetype?

General :: File Name Extensions With VIM (VI Improved)?

Feb 11, 2010

GNU/Linux kernel 2.6, Slackware. VIM - Vi IMproved 7.1 Huge version without GUI. When I quit an editing sesion vim creates a backup file with the same name as that of the edited file but with a '~' appended. I would like the name for the backup file to be the following: same base name as that of the edited file and edited file extension replaced by 'bak'. Example:

Input file//////////////backup file after editing

The first line corresponds to what vim now does. The second one is what I want vim to do.

Debian :: Set Default Application For Specific File Extensions

Dec 17, 2015

How to properly set some entries in:


so that:
*.odb files are opened by default with libreoffice base
*.org files (just org files not plain text files) are opened by default with emacs

For some reason I can not figure out how to proceed.

As far as I know - i.e. for what I have been reading in the documentation - the default application for a given MIME-type is specified by writing into the group [Default Applications] in the mimeapps.list file

My configuration is the following:

- 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt11-1+deb8u6 (2015-11-09) x86_64 GNU/Linux
