OpenSUSE :: Disappearing Applications From - (windows Open And Minimized) Panel

Jul 29, 2010

I am running a week old 11.3 install with KDE (no desktop effects), compiz, nvidia. Last night I was working away. I had Thundertbird, Firefox, and VMWare Workstation open. Maybe something else, but I don't remember.

I was typing away. Maybe I hit something on the keyboard, but maybe not. All apps just disappeared, meaning that they're windows were not open and were not minimized to the panel. I could open *new* windows, and I fire up a terminal and ran top, which showed that they were all running, just not visible. Obviously, this is a Bad Thing.

Ubuntu :: 90% Of The Applications Install - Last Release - Do Not Show Up Later On In Applications Menu

Jul 24, 2010

I feel shy asking this question but, 90% of the applications I install in Ubuntu (last release), do not show up later on in the applications menu, so I cant run them. I know it seems silly, but I can't find the way to handle this inconvenience. Is there a place (like Start> All programs in Windows), were I could find and run all the programs I install?

Ubuntu :: Make Windows Key Open The Panel?

Mar 9, 2011

I'm trying to find a way to make my Windows key the shortcut to opening my start panel in Lubuntu. I've found easy instructions for Ubuntu, but Lubuntu doesn't have the keyboard shortcuts utility that Ubuntu has (at least I can't find it).

I found some instructions for editing a config file but I can't find the command for opening the panel, and I've seen conflicting information about how the Windows key is written (some say W, some say Super_L), so I hesitate to start playing around with that file when I'm only guessing.

Ubuntu :: Right Mouse Click Freeze / When Right Mouse Button To Open Options Menu It Freezes And Does Not Open Menu?

Oct 14, 2010

just want to report "Right Mouse Click Freeze" on Ubuntu 10.10. When I click on anything with my right mouse button to open options menu it freezes and does not open menu. Sometimes when I shake my mouse left/right a bit it opens that menu, but this does not work always. It seems like xserver issue, but I'm not sure since I'm not expert in linux yet. It's very annoying issue that I would like to resolve asap.

My System Specs:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Western Digital 250 GB Hard Drive
Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit (Kernel Linux 2.6.35-22)
(Used Desktop Install CD)

Debian Multimedia :: Can't See Windows Open / Make It Possible?

Mar 9, 2010

I've had this for a while now and though I might as well do something about it.
When I have more than one or more windows open none of the show up on the taskbar, I'll show you what I mean.:

Although you can't see it from the picture, I actually have two windows open, both of which should show up on the taskbar (1.).
I can open windows by clicking on the button marked 2.

Is there something simple that I have missed?

Software :: Gnome With Associated Applications For Registered File Types / Cant See Apps From "open With" Menu When Right Click To A File?

Oct 6, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 with Gnome 2.30.

I remove the applications which i don't use from main-menu. Now i can not see them from "open with" menu when i right click to a file.

Also it will be very nice if Ubuntu can show me on the "open with" menu the possibilities of applications which can open properly the file type which i want to open. I try to configure with ubuntu-tweak's "file type manager" but it is not possible to configure all of file types. I think Ubuntu's applications must to know which applications has to show for which file types. And i don't know how to do that. I need an application like this : url

I get a new user from the same OS, and i see that the same problem still there... For example many many compressed files, audio or graphic files are not associated with vlc or gimp.

I try to configure from system files of gnome but it is very complicated.

Debian Multimedia :: How To Make Certain Windows Open Same Size Every Time

Jan 13, 2016

I have been using windowmaker for some time now. I really love this wm, but I've one major problem; how do I make certain windows open the same size each time I open that program? For instance, I have a certain size I prefer for Pcmanfm, Vlc, deadbeef, and geequie, but every time I run them, they open anywhere on the desktop at all sorts of sizes. I especially hate resizing a video window when the video is playing.

I can do this in fluxbox, but I have a different set of problems with that window manager, namely, I can't organize my dockapps the way I want, despite editing the slitlist and some won't work at all. While I love Openbox, I can't get the windows sized right each time, either.

CentOS 5 :: X Windows Applications "Can't Open Display" After Su

Aug 27, 2009

I have recently resurrected an old X Windows application and I am having a problem getting a CentOS 5.3 client to run the application from a CentOS 5.3 host.

If I am logged in as root to the client side and ssh -Y over to the host, then run xclock, everything works just fine.

However, if after I ssh -Y over to the host, I then su - userx on the host, and then run xclock, I always get the "Can't open display" error.

I have tried:

Running xhost + on the client. doing the "xauth add display MIT-COOKIE xxxxxxxxxxxx" on the client & host, both as the root user, and as the userx. I can't seem to get a definitive answer as to which user and which machine (client/host) this needs to be run as.

Also, when you "xauth list $DISPLAY" you get nothing, (because it is either localhost:0.0 as root, or :0.0 as the su - user) you have to "xauth list", and then you get a list of cookies, but since the "echo $DISPLAY" doesn't match any of them, it is not obvious which one to use. Also, they are ALL "host/unix:X.0", so I assume they are all socket based, and as such I would assume that the their cookies would not be usable for remote TCP connections?

I also saw information about using netstat -anp to look for 60** LISTENERS, I could not find any on the client or host sides.

Nothing seems to work.

I heard about a program sux that is on ubuntu, but I could not find it for CentOS. Is there an equivalent on CentOS?

I have searched the web and found lots of info in forums all over the net with what appears to be the correct way to do this, still nothing appears to work.

What is confusing is that if the TCP LISTENERS were not there, I should not be able to get it to work as root either, so it must be in the transition of the su - userx.

Applications :: Error Glibtop: Open (/proc/stat): Too Many Open Files

Oct 1, 2010

I have a while(1) loop, and the error is: glibtop: open (/proc/stat): Too many open files This error occurs after about a half hour to an hour of running. I've tried running this multiple times, both with using glib_close() at the end of the loop, using glib_init() and glib_close() at beginning/end, and just using glib_init(). The strange thing is these have no effect on the actual glib_get functions.

Ubuntu :: Put A Script In Applications Menu?

Jan 3, 2011

I just downloaded the most recent SuperTuxKart from SourceForge. It is ready-to-run (no compiling, no making).The script that runs the whole thing contains this single line:Code:LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./bin/: bin/supertuxkartOf course, when I double-click on it, I select Run and I'm off racing Tux.But I'd like this to be in the Applications > Games menu.I tried adding a launcher and for the command I just browsed to that script and clicked OK.But when I click the launcher, nothing starts.So what to do? The script has no shebang line, do I put one in? Granted I can just create a desktop shortcut, but I'd really like it to be up there with my other games.

Ubuntu :: Put A Script Of Mine In The Applications Menu?

Jan 30, 2010

I want to put a script of mine in the applications menu , so that when I click on it , it executes itself ...so I created a new application by the name myapplication.desktop in /usr/share/applications/ . But when in GUI mode I traverse down to this directory and click on myapplication.desktop . It gives me an error "myapplication.desktop is not a directory". The crazy part is that when I run it using the terminal freedom@freedom-laptop: /usr/share/applications$ myapplication it runs perfectly well. I can't understand the problem...the script is correct , but I don't know about the error saying "it is not a directory" as all the other files in there are also files and they do run even in graphical mode .
