Ubuntu Installation :: Customization Of 10.04 Livecd - Going Directly To Desktop

May 20, 2010

The new 10.04 livecd diverts to a dialog asking if you want to go to livecd or install, which makes sense (shifting the choice away from grub, etc). However, I want to go directly to desktop: does anyone know exactly where in the boot process this diversion happens? I have a suspicion that it happens before the autologin, or somewhere thereabouts, but I haven't found anything after poking around initrd.lz. where to find the script that invokes the dialog?

Ubuntu :: 9.10 - Customization - Turn Certain Features On Or Off

Mar 20, 2010

I'm currently running 9.10 and I'm wondering if it isn't possible to turn certain features on or off. For example the dock that appears at the bottom of the screen, I don't dig it but it isn't under System ---> Preferences ---> Startup applications. Also when I connect/disconnect my modem, can I change the size of the notification window and how long it stays on the screen? Another is how to stop everything I plug in appearing on the desktop. I prefer an uncluttered desktop and would like to open plug-in devices through Places.

Ubuntu :: Docky And Gnome Do UI Customization

Jul 22, 2010

This year in college I've had the liberty to be learning about Linux. This was mostly in the shell so a lot of GUI applications we didn't use. The fun part of this all is that once you know how to work in Bash. Linux isn't all so frightening and confusing anymore ! So I've decided to finally take the shot on switching from Windows to Ubuntu Desktop and I must say I'm quite amazed with the customization you can do in Ubuntu.I just installed Docky and I installed Gnome Do. Now it has come to my attention that Gnome Do can integrate with Docky however I do have a small question concerning the customization of the Dock bar. In Gnome Do I would really like to have the panel look from Docky and I was wondering if this is possible. To me it seems that it's only possible to use the 3D look which looks a lot like Mac OSx. I'm aiming for a bit of a Windows 7 interface however.

Ubuntu :: Right-click Menu Customization In Xfce?

Nov 16, 2010

I'm trying to figure out how I can customise the menus that appear when I right-click on one of my panels or the desktop in Xfce 4.6.2 under Xubuntu 10.10. I was able to use Gnome menu editor to get the standard menus up to snuff but it will do nothing for the right-click menus.

I have no aversion to manually editing config files if that's what it takes, I just cant seem to find the right ones.

Ubuntu :: Unity - Workspace Management Customization?

Jun 2, 2011

My apologies for posting this twice - the first time I had a poorly chosen title. First hour with Unity. First impression: Ewww.

It seems like Unity is designed more for the average newbie than for the power user. Yet, I'm willing to give it a shot. with the following things I'm missing now (that I had in Compiz)?

1. I had Ctrl-Alt-<workspace number> setup to move the current window directly to that workspace. (Ctrl-Shift-Alt-Arrow?? Really? Four keys at once and a couple of arrow pushes???)

2. I had Ctrl-Shift-<workspace number> to move the current window directly to that workspace without following it.

3. Pressing the middle button on the desktop initiated grabbing the cube and turning it.

4. Moving the scroll wheel while on the desktop would rotate the cube.

General :: Make A Live Cd With Ubuntu Customization Kit?

Jul 27, 2011

I'm trying to make a live CD with UCK, and I've got it all working perfectly except for the proprietary Nvidia drivers. When I try to sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-185 it won't install properly giving me an error saying it won't work because it's chrooted (which it is), so I guess my question is how do I install the proprietary drivers into a chrooted environment so I can put it on a live CD?

I would just test it until I figured it out, but customizing the CD it about an hour long process after all is said and done so I'd rather avoid it.

Fedora :: GDM Customization Under Gnome 3?

Jun 5, 2011

I've been looking for a while, a way to customize my gdm screen under the new gnome 3 (fedora 15). As of now the touchpad click of my laptop is disabled under the gdm screen but not when I log into my session. I figure the gnome settings must be different under gdm so I need to find a way to change said settings but up until now I wasn't successful. Does anyone have an idea on how to activate the touchpad click under gdm ? And more generally how to customize the gdm screen in gnome 3 (change the themes, etc) ?

N.B : Already know how to change the background of the gdm screen. All you have to do is put the background you want in the folder fitting your screen resolution under "/usr/share/backgrounds/lovelock/default-stripes" then by editing the file "/usr/share/backgrounds/lovelock/default-stripes/lovelock.xml" so that the name of the new background is up to date within that file

OpenSUSE :: Recommend Some KDE Customization

Sep 21, 2010

I wanted my final install of openSuse 11.3 to be, and I had chosen Gnome. Well, after a few days, I got bored with it again since I've done so much with it on other Distros, so I installed openSuse 11.3 with KDE last night lol. (Reinstalling Linux distros is just so much fun lol).Anyways, I'm currently running my KDE 4.4 Suse desktop and would like to know what some of you guys have for customizations. I'd like to make my computer real nice with cool themes, icons, widgets and whatever else I can change.

So please, just respond to this thread if you have done any customizations, simple or complex, and let us know how you like it and possibly how you did it! I'd love to hear all of your guys' feedback and look forward to all of the responses. I appreciate all of your time!

Ubuntu :: Creating Customization Batch Script - GUI Interface

Feb 6, 2010

I've used Fedora 11 and 12, and I found autoten which automatically installs a lot of necessary software and provides an easy GUI interface to do so. I switched to Ubuntu Karmic recently and now I'm working on customizing all the bugs that come with my computer. So far, I've fixed compiz-fusion, the sound problem with ALSA, as well as customizing the theme to the way I like it (by fixed I don't mean it was a reported Launchpad bug, but just that I customized it to my liking or it wasn't previously working on my laptop and it is working now).

So my question is, am I able to (even though my knowledge is limited), able to make some sort of batch script that will automatically apply the changes I wish every time I update my kernel? Or, just for simplicity's sake, I may stay with 9.10 for a while and have this script to apply my changes if/when I have to uninstall/reinstall. I know it's fairly simple to make a batch file in Windows, so I'm hoping it will be just as easy in Linux. (I know, comparing apples to oranges).

Ubuntu :: Evolution Sidebar Customization - 11 Email Accounts

May 15, 2010

I'm using Evolution with 11 different Email accounts. They all show up with their respective folders in the left sidebar. How can I change their order? Now, so it seems, the account I entered first is on top. I want the more important accounts to be the furtest up and move some others down. I'm sure there has to be a file where this is stored, no?

Fedora :: Post-install F Customization Script?

May 1, 2011

Anyone know of a script to do the usual stuff to Fedora that you may want to do following a fresh installation? Such as... install rpmfusion, install the real adobe flash, install sun's java, etc etc. There's plenty of guides/howto's out there, but I'm about to start working on something like 'winetricks', but for fedora. Thought I'd ask to see if anyone has seen something like that first.

General :: Script To Automatically Saving Gnome Customization?

May 12, 2010

I was wondering if there was a way to create a script to automatically restore, on a fresh linux (with GNOME desktop manager) install, all my interface preferences. Let me explain; every time I install ubuntu (or any other distro), I find myself doing the same actions over and over again: delete the bottom panel, place the top panel on the bottom, put the workspace switcher in the bottom panel, add a shortcut to gedit on the bottom panel next the firefox icon, set 'oblivion' theme to gedit, and so on. Frankly, this is getting annoying.

So I was wondering if I could do it once and for all, and keep track of it on a script, that way on future fresh installs I will need only run the script and my distro will look the way I want it to. Before anyone suggests me to, let me point out I already tried replacing the newly-created ~/.gconf and the ~/.gconfd with the ones from previous "customized" distros but it gave me major issues in terms of window compositing, so I had to revert to the backed up gconf and gconfd directories.

I have Ubuntu installed on my pc and it's just the way I like it setup. I want to make a LiveCD.

There was a tutorial (sorry can't remember URL) for remastersys but it was obviously obsolete as the lines to add to the repository were no longer live.

What is the absolute easiest way to create a LiveCD, hopefully something that is GUI based.

I have a Ubuntu, Kubuntu 9.10 live CD which I know work because I have installed on my other computer, (HP Pavillion ze2000), and also linux mint 8 and openSUSE 11.2, which also run/work.

Ubuntu :: BT LiveCD Wiped 9.10 Install?

Mar 13, 2010

As with almost every time I try to simultaneously install two operating systems, I have incurred the wrath of GRUB. It's probably more to do with my laptop's terrible hard drive, but here's my problem: I had a 9.10 install and a swap space on this hard drive, then I used GParted from the BT live CD to resize shrink the Ubuntu partition to make space for a BT install. I booted into Ubuntu just to make sure it was working fine. it was. Then I went back in to the BT live CD to install it on the free space.

When I booted up after install, the GRUB screen had changed (obviously), but now only the BT installation (which appeared as Ubuntu 8.10 for some reason) would boot, The previous Ubuntu installs had stopped working, and now came up with "file missing" or "file not found" (cant remember). I tried fsck -v /dev/hda1 (where my 9.10 installation was), and it didn't seem to have any errors. What's wrong with my computer (or GRUB)?

Ubuntu :: Installing Over Network From LiveCD?

Mar 14, 2010

I've asked this in another forum, but I'm not sure I phrased it very well. I have a desktop and a "server" at the house. The "server" is sitting across the room, with no keyboard or mouse. If I were to boot the server from a LiveCD, could I then get in with SSH and kick off the setup remotely? I'm getting "Connection refused" when trying to ssh in, so I'm guessing that the service is probably not turned on.

I checked into Reconstructor, and I think that may be the way to go, if I can figure out what I need to do. I'm thinking all I need to do is install an SSH key and start the service, then I can get into it from my desktop and proceed with the install.

Is this possible to do? Or is there a better way? I know I could lug the keyboard, mouse and monitor over to the other machine to do it, but that would mean that I couldn't do anything on my desktop (since that's where the keyboard, etc. would come from).

Ubuntu :: Skype Usabel From LiveCD?

Apr 8, 2010

Is skype available and usable from the live CD/DVD? Before meddling on the hard drive with anything, I'd like to see if my mom's aging PC is up to Skype at all, worth upgrading, or needs completely replaced. She has Win98SE on it, I think it's some breed of Athlon but can't remember and it's to far away for me to look at it right now...
