Ubuntu :: Alphabet - File Browser Ignores The Brackets - Making Old Method Ineffective

Mar 21, 2010

The way I organize all my files into their folders, they add up quickly. I like having a quick way to keep more frequently accessed folders at the top of the list in explorer. In windows, folder "[zippidy do da]" would appear above folder "aardvark" because of the brackets, but Ubuntu's file browser ignores the brackets, making my old method ineffective. I could put a zero in front of such folders

Ubuntu :: Making Gkrellm Transparent In KDE 4x?

Dec 19, 2010

how to enable transparent themes on Gkrellm and KDE 4. AND ASK FOR HELP WITH A PROBLEM FURTHER DOWN THE PAGE. Libsensors is THE program for gathering sensor data for use in various applets. Some few (mostly older) sensors have their output sent to a system file, where it can be picked-up and used by the system, but the best way to get sensor data, especially for newer sensor chips, is directly from libsensor. Since 2007 libsensor support has been built out of Gkrellm in Ubuntu (perhaps all of Debian, though I'm unclear on that). From some cursory research on the internet, I discovered that in 2007 libsensors did a major update, and Gkrellm did not. Problems insued. Support for libsensors was dropped in Gkrellm. Even though a patch was produced fairly quickly, support for libsensors in Gkrellm was never re-allowed. There is a bug on this here.

To enable support for libsensors in Gkrellm you have to build Gkrellm from source (EGADS!!) It's really pretty easy with this package and mine went off without a hitch (and I now have WONDERFUL readouts from my atk0110 sensors on my asus mb.). You can find the source package for Gkrellm here, and you can find some easy instructions for building it here. Piece of cake (really!). Okay, on to invisibility.... Gkrellm invisibility doesn't happen in KDE 4 (without a little tinkering...). I discovered the fix by looking for insights in pages discussing the same problem in conky. I found a good one, and thinking the same situation might apply to gkrellm, I tried it and IT WORKED! Here's the original post. My gratitude to the author. I'm going to reproduce the process here for posterity's sake, and because the command has changed slightly with the location of the plasma-desktop-appletsrc file.

So, gkrellm uses fake transparency. It samples the desktop at its coordinates and reproduces the image as its background. Gkrellm doesn't use the user's desktop to sample from - it uses the root desktop image - hence the strange-looking colors I got whenever I tried one of the transparent themes. Okay, so first you need to make your current desktop image your root desktop image. To do this you need to install "feh" (copy and paste these commands into terminal)


sudo apt-get install feh
After that's done, enter this in terminal:


feh --bg-scale "`grep 'wallpaper=' ~/.kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc | tail --bytes=+11`"

Okay, now it needs to be set-up so that it'll load automatically. The feh documentation recommends setting this in ~/.xsessionrc (if you don't have one, make one with kate - and don't forget the dot before the name [ the expression ~/ is shorthand for your home directory path, /home/username, so the aforementioned path in full would be /home/username/.xsessionrc ]):


`cat $HOME/.fehbg`

That done, we arrive at a problem. I could use some help here, if anyone has any idea how to fix it. It's not a deal-breaker, but it's definitely inconvenient if you like to change your wallpaper a lot. The feh program creates a file called ~/.fehbg to store the actual path of the image used as 'wallpaper'. Unfortunately, it stores it like this:


feh --bg-scale '/home/laysan/Pictures/shadows_1280.jpg_cropped.png'

The two single quotes enclosing the path are unfortunately read as part of the path, so when feh (or if it hands it off to bash or kde) looks for the image file it can't find it. You get a no such file error in feh. I created a bug report here. The only way I know of to fix it (I tried removing various sets of quotation marks from the original feh command to no avail) is to open the ~/.fehbg file in kate and remove the two single quotations, so it looks like this:


feh --bg-scale /home/laysan/Pictures/shadows_1280.jpg_cropped.png

But you must still do one more thing. You must change the permissions on ~/.fehbg to root, or the image's path will be overwritten the next time it's opened (at next login), with the single quotes included. Doing so fixes the issue in the short term, but when you change desktop images you'll have to reinstate your user privileges on the file, and re-run the original command to allow the file to be written to by feh (with the new image path), then edit the file again to remove the single quotes.

General :: Searching Content Of The File Using File Browser Nautilus?

May 27, 2011

I'm using rhel6. Using File Browser Nautilus 2.28.4 I could easily locate any file I'm interested in by it name. I'd like to use this File Browser to locate the file name based on it content e.g. based on some word in the text file. It doesn't work for me that way ... My question: does Nautilus support the search of file based on it content or only based on the name of the file itself?

Ubuntu :: Making Booklets - Print Document To PDF File?

Apr 3, 2010

I've seen lots of threads about this with complex solutions using things like PSUtils etc. but nothing simple and easy. Is there an easy way to print to a document to a PDF file so that it is properly formatted to be printed as a booklet?

For example, a 12 page booklet made up of A4 folded in half to A5 -
1st page = 12 & 1
2nd page = 2 & 11
3rd page = 10 & 3 etc.

So that when it is printed double-sided it comes out as a booklet. The site at the following link does what I want perfectly if I upload the booklet in single pages format, but it would be nice to have a simple way to do it offline in ubuntu [URL]

General :: Making File Server With Web GUI Functionality

Jan 27, 2011

I had a external HD from Lacie that just made me mad because you could only log into it from a windows or mac machine. So I took the 250 HD out and through it in my P3 733Mhz Processor, 128 Ram Dell optiplex. Now My Lacie HD had a Network function on it where It had a webserver and a GUI to manage users to it. But it couldn't never get the HD to turn on for Network. It would only turn on when plugged into a USB. So I want to turn my Dell optiplex into a file server with web gui functionality. How should I start.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Making A Mess Of Folders And File Names

Jan 8, 2010

I've been enjoying using Rhythmbox to rip a stack of CDs. Initially I had problems getting it to recognise Lame but following uninstalling and reinstalling it, it seemed to be working well. That is, until I looked in my Music folder.

It turns out files have been placed in individual folders, named "number - title.udio" (e.g.: "11 - She Can Do What She Wants.udio". The mp3 file itself is named identically throughout - it's the string for the gstreamer settings, i.e. "x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lame name=enc preset=1002 ! xingmux ! id3v2muxmp3".

The settings within Rhythmbox's properties for folder and file naming are all set to the sensible default. This is a pain. In the short term I'm going to try EasyTAG to sort it out, but ultimately I need to sort this or find alternative software.

Ubuntu Networking :: Making Mounted File Systems Available On Remote Machines Using SSH?

Dec 19, 2010

if this a simple question I apologise, I'm using a SSH connection to a remote machine which also has ubuntu installed, my remote machine is connected to a windows server, using <places> <Network> and clicking on the server, doing this mounts the server into my remote file systemWhen i look around the file system of the remote machine i'm unable to make the windows server resource available to me.I Assume it has a service file in the /dev directory, but would not know what its called or what i would have to do with it.In the mean time i've managed to connect directily to the server from my local machine, (which is probbialy a better solution) but is it possible to see the server via my remate machine?

General :: Making Tar File From Folder - Unknown Option

Aug 6, 2010

I am trying to make my first tar file in linux. I am trying to make a tar file from a folder (with all subfolders and files) and using several commands I got several errors!

This is the tar usage:
tar [-]{txruc}[eONvVwAfblhm{op}][0-7[lmh]] [tapefile] [blocksize] [[-C directory] file] ...

Some of my attempts and responses:
tar -czf itic_glb_cognity-06082010.tar.gz itic-glb-cognity/
response: tar: z: unknown option (not using 'z' again!)
tar -cf itic-glb-cognity-06082010.tar.gz itic-glb-cognity/
response: tar: cannot stat itic-glb-cognity. Not dumped.

The last ones repeats for all the next attempts:
tar -cf itic-glb-cognity-06082010.tar.gz itic-glb-cognity
tar -cf iticglbcognity06082010.tar.gz itic-glb-cognity/
(full path + name without spaces) tar -cf iticglbcognity06082010.tar.gz /epos/webbus/bea/user_projects/domains/itic-glb-cognity

For some of the above a 10kb file was created, where the expected file would be about 250MB. I dont think it has anything to do with the user's rights, because I think I have them all.

Ubuntu :: File Browser Tabs

Apr 30, 2010

This is not a big deal in the grand scheme, but more an annoyance. I allowed Ubuntu (Karmic) to do some updates today. now, in the File Browser, there is no longer a tab bar. Before, there was the bar located beneath the address bar that was similar to Firefox, that had the + to open new tabs. Now it is gone and I do not see an option for a tab bar anywhere. I realize i can right-click on the tree on the left to open a new tab, but I REALLY liked the original feature. Anyone know how to get it back?
