Ubuntu :: Black Background After Changing Vnc Settings

Oct 12, 2010

I was configuring the vnc server or remote desktop using the "gconf-editor" -- "desktop - gnome - remote_access" pane, and first I clicked on "disable background" to see if it was usefull or not to disable it (in terms of speed). It worked fine but sometimes when closing the connection, the background refuses to reenable, mantaining the black background...

That's ok, I decided to disable the feature and share via vnc the background as it is a wired net and I do not really need this feature.

My surprise is that now, whith the feature DISABLE (box unchecked), I cannot set a background, it is always black and I find no way to go back in this...

is this common, or something that can be "easily" fixed?

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Layout Keep Changing?

May 9, 2010

my keyboard layout keep changing from windows to windows. When I am using my French keyboard, I set the keyboard to English and it doesn't make the change for all the open windows, despite having selected the "separate layout for each windows" unselected.Plus if I am in firefox with a French layout go to another windows and come back to the firefox windows, the layout is back to GBR.

Ubuntu :: Changing Keyboard Layout In CLI ?

Sep 3, 2010

I have an Ubuntu server running on a VM. I'm accessing this system mainly remotely, and usually with a console connection. I export the output of some applications (like Skype, Google Chrome etc.) to my Windows desktop, where I run Xming as my X server. Everything works pretty neat, but... I can't change the keyboard layout, because the applications are running on the remote machine. So is there a way to change the keyboard layout in CLI?

Ubuntu Installation :: Install W/o Changing Grub Settings?

May 13, 2010

Is there a way to do an install from the iso image to a new disk (USB or whatever), without changing the grub settings on the systems existing hard drive? Every time I try to do a full install to a USB stick, it hoses grub on my hard disk, even though I specify the partitioning during the install, and leave /dev/sda untouched. This has happened now with both Karmic and Lucid.

Ubuntu Security :: Prevent Users From Changing Settings

Jun 15, 2011

I am administrating a system with about 40 or 50 users, and we recently jumped ship from windows to ubuntu. Most of my users are getting along fine, but it seems every few days, i have to help someone who accidentally changed something, and now their account (or more rarely, the machine) is unusable, and has to be reset.

I know configuring /etc/sudoers is a huge step toward fixing my problem, but that still will not completely solve it. What I would like to do is prevent users from making ANY changes to the system (aside from their work files and the like), including themes, icons, desktop, background, etc.

Slackware :: Changing Network Settings In Slack 12.1?

Sep 9, 2010

I got a Slackware 12.1 on a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop which is a multi boot system along with Vista and Ubuntu Hardy. I tried using Slackware after several months. The last time I used Slackware, I was at university where the Network settings were Manual - Static IP, Gateway, DNS all specified according to location (dorm room). I moved out of univ and now have a network connection with DHCP. Basically I connect to a server, login with the info the service provider has given me.

Problem is I can't change the Network settings through Control Center in KDE. It just doesn't register any changes even if I reboot. Through Konsole and as root, I could change the settings using netconfig. But then I need a reboot to register the changes. Why is this so? Anyway to avoid a reboot? In my Ubuntu Hardy, there is no need for a reboot when I change the settings. Thats quite convenient.

Slackware :: Changing Timezone Settings And CMOS

Feb 12, 2011

I am having a problem getting my Slackware 13.0 to accept a timezone cmos setting change. My cmos was set to local time and my Slackware was displaying the correct time as EST. Cmos was set localtime to be compatible with dual booting Windows I have now removed Windows and replace it with Ubuntu. Now, Ubuntu wants the hardware clock to be UTC, which is the norm for unicis. SO, lets make Slackware treat the hardware clock as UTC.

I go to /etc/hardwareclock make these changes.

I reboot setting cmos to UTC, but now when I come up Slackware displays UTC and calls it EST. I go to the date/time app under the system xfce menu, but all it says it is set to UTC (EST) and change from the list below. The list below only has UTC listed. So, now how do I get it subtract the necessary five hours?

Ubuntu :: Changing The Login Keyboard Language?

Apr 4, 2010

I changed the Language and the keyboard to Amharic (normally I use US English). Ever since then I have been unable to log in as the keyboard is typing in Amharic and the original password was created in US English. I also tried << Ctrl+Alt+F1 >> and typed in the login name and password, even Root and the password but no luck.

Ubuntu :: Won't Boot After Changing Keyboard Layout

Jul 8, 2010

When I installed Ubuntu on my laptop I selected English US (dead keys) as my keyboard layout, but a couple of days ago I decided to change it to English US (dead keys ALTGR) so I just went to the keyboard settings and added the layout, then deleted the old one "English US (dead keys)", logged out and selected the new one "English US (dead keys ALTGR)", logged back in and then restarted, and now I can't boot into Ubuntu, all I get is Grub but when I enter to Ubuntu I get a black screen and the Caps Lock light blinking.

Ubuntu :: Changing Keyboard Layout On Server?

Jul 9, 2011

I decided to give Linux another chance and installed Ubuntu Server. During the setup, I was asked about my keyboard layout in a rather cumbersome way. I remember answering a number of questions and even having to type a few keys so that Ubuntu could guess the layout, rather than just letting me select "Swedish". But that's okay; Ubuntu guessed right and suggested me to use to Swedish layout.

After setup I was still left with some standard US layout. This deserves ranting about. I may have expected to run into some show-stopper this time too, but I never expected it to be something as fundamental as getting the keyboard layout right! Anyway, I googled and found the same suggested answer in many places:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup I ran it a few times now (selecting UTF-8 and Latin1 mostly), but it makes no difference. There is no setting for keyboard layout there, so I don't see why it would work. Are all server admins expected to get a US keyboard or what?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Changing Screen Resolution To Maximum Settings?

Jan 26, 2010

Just got an HP dv6-2150 laptop. Dual boot with Windows 7 and 9.04 (9.10 will not work but that's a different story). The screen resolution is too low and is set at the highest option available (1024x768 which is a 4:3 aspect ratio). The HP uses the new Intel i3-330m chipset with on-board Intel HD graphics. The system is capable of 1366x768 resolution (16:9) - so how do I get it there? xorg.conf looks real generic - nothing specific to Intel.

Debian :: Preventing System From Changing Cpufreq Settings

Apr 10, 2011

I am not sure where to post that so I'll just try here.My main question is: How can I prevent the system from changing my cpufreq settings? I'd like to keep the CPU load as low as possible so these settings are probably the best.However when I run some applications that require a higher CPU load the system changes the governor to performance and the rang to 0.8 - 2.4 GHz.And that's my problem. I neither know what application exactly is responsible for changing my cpufreq settings nor do I know how to turn that off.Or is it supposed to be that way?

Networking :: Changing System Internet Connection Settings?

Mar 28, 2010

Failed to fetch [URL] Could not connect to ( - connect (111 Connection refused)----when tor and polipo are not running---

Possible causes:

I just installed tor, privoxy, and polipo and set them up for web browsing anonymity. Other than that I don't recall making any system wide changes.

Other Info:

I can access the internet via a web browser and other programs just fine because i can manually edit each program's internet connection settings. apt-get works when tor and polipo are running. I have used tor and privoxy/polipo in the past and this has never been a problem, so I must have done something different this go around. Obviously I am not sure what that is. Attached are the applicable config files.

Ubuntu :: Changing Keyboard Layout Or Defining New Hotkeys?

Dec 21, 2010

I use Persian language on my system and I really need two things:1. To define a custom layout for my keyboard. I am used to a layout that is not available in Ubuntu. Can I do that? (For example I need the system to enter a ****پ character instead of when I hit the backslash key)2. Defining a custom hotkey. I used a hotkey program in windows so I could enter no-space breaks with shift+space. Can I define that in Ubuntu

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Changing Display Configuration In NVIDIA X Server Settings?

Feb 23, 2010

I have a Dell E6500 laptop (1280x800 screen), which I frequently dock.The dock as two Dell 1908FP 20" monitors connected by DVI. I can move between the laptop display and the twins by manually changing display configuration in NVIDIA X Server settings, but this is a pain requiring about 15 clicks each time.

I have tried using the "Save to X Configuration File" option in the Nvidia server settings, but this seems to screw everything up. I need to dynamically change between the setups... anyone have advice on getting that done?Can the xorg.conf file be configured to do it?My xorg.conf looks like this:

Section "Screen"
Identifier"Default Screen"

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Pulse Audio Volume Controller: Stop It From Changing Settings?

Jun 12, 2010

I'm still working on ubuntu 9.10 with an acer aspire 1810tz. To use my microphone I found out that I have to change my microphone settings because it's mono and the default setting is thinking it's stereo: With the Volume Controller I setup one chancel to 5 and the other to 90 and the mic is working fine. Starting Skype and using it I see that the setting is reducing the volume for the mic below 20, so nobody can hear me. I tried closing first Volume Controller and then starting Skype, no matter the volume of the mic is reduced. How do I stop this behavior?

Debian :: Script For Changing Keyboard Layouts Won't Work

Nov 1, 2015

I had composed about 4 meticulous paragraphs and when I went to submit it all, the forum had logged me out and all the entire post got blown away. Don't have the time to do it again. Hope the abbreviated version makes sense.

Trying to write scripts to change keyboards on the fly (my wife is a luddite and either I automate it or she won't use the machine.)

Wrote a file named "ChangeKeyboardToUS" which reads

# Change keyboard layout to standard US
chmod 755 setxkbmap us intl

All that syntax is as per [URL] ....

I put that file into my local bin (home/bj/bin) and in terminal add that to my path with the command:

export PATH=$PATH:/home/bj/bin.

When I run the script in a terminal (by typing "ChangeKeyboardToUS" I get "Permission Denied". Even running it as su, still get the same response.
