Running Ubuntu Netbook remix on a Toshiba NB500-upgraded to 2 Gigabytes RAM. Very slow opening applications via the side icons. 8-12 seconds. Is that normal for this distro?
- No 3D cube. Installed related compiz software, adjusted settings, ticked cubes etc. Not a peep.
- No direct desktop access. Only via side icons. Just find it fiddly re: using desktop and changing background via side icons.
Couple other items (MBB for one) but for another category.
I have Ubuntu 11.04 and I am running it on Ubuntu classic due to not caring for Unity very much. I have an Acer Aspire 5739 and a Nvidia GEForce GT 130M graphics card. Is there any way to have a 3D desktop cube again?
I have read many posts on here and else where and still have not managed to get it working. (I am fairly new to Linux btw so just try to keep that in mind when replying)
I'm trying to get desktop cube in compiz to work. I can select it and create a key combination for it, but I can't get it to work. I tried creating new workspaces and making less but the cube never shows up.
I was just experimenting with compiz effects on Natty 11.04, and when I clicked desktop cube (which I'm assuming you're not supposed to do, haha), my compiz broke. The pop up windows are way at the top of the screen, almost out of view, and the windows lack the close, minimize, and maximize buttons. I tried reinstalling all the compiz plugins, and when I rebooted I had the same problem! I am using metacity right now, but I would be very sad if i was stuck with it.
I'm running 11.04 with Unity and enabled Desktop Cube in Compiz Settings Manager. I ended up disabling services, i think "largedesktop" and enabling others like OpenGL and composite. Anyway, unity no longer works including the bar above and the icons to the left. Any idea how I can fix this?
How can one have direct access to key strikes. Normally the key strikes that collected by the concerned programme and access to the same is not available to any other user programs. I am trying to write a program to simultaneously catch the key strikes. Obviously for this would require a low-level access to the keyboard. How can one do it ?
I have a single board computer previously running DOS. I recently made Linux running on it. Now that the system is running Linux, I have to translate the code that was supported by DOS. The code has segments that allow direct access of memory mapped registers through the macro _MK_FP and do read/write. I have read that where DOS allows this kind of direct memory access, Linux does not. Is there a way to do this in Linux?
i'm using a 64 bit system. i'm running cube deformation with cylinder.i am unable to make my cube caps transparent.i've deleted the original cap settings.i have also attempted to log out and in again to see if it would change.also.....my mouse is not changing to it's new pointer when i'm active in compiz.when compiz is off my mouse change is set, when it is on it stays as the white pointer unless i'm on firefox.
i was looking at videos and saw some demonstration of desktop-environment. one demonstration was of an ubuntu with something called atlantic desktop. it is an transparent 3d cube with swimming fishes inside the cube and in the background. i go into comfiz-fusion web-page and there i could read that its not a plugin, but a part of atlantic screensaver that come original with kde4-screensaver-extra, but in my opensuse 11.1 kde4.22 i cant find this.
How do i install the cube Atlantis 2 on my desktop and what application do i have to get to install it on my desktop,im using ubuntu 10.10 i have already install compiz fusion and the regular cube but i wanna install atlantis 2 cube on my pc.
I installed with the image, running alongside Windows 7 on my desktop. I hadn't been in Ubuntu on my laptop for awhile, and hadn't experienced the 11.04 alpha's yet, so I didn't know there would be substantial changes. Obviously, Unity instead of Gnome surprised me a bit, but I have liked it so far.
But here lies the problem. I installed Compiz and ccsm through the software center, then went to enable the desktop cube and rotating cube. I clicked enable/disable on everything that popped up, but I think I must have disabled Unity (whoops). The whole desktop basically disappeared; that is, the dock on the left was gone and the window borders disappeared. I was able to close the windows with Alt+F4, but then couldn't open anything back up. The Super key didn't activate the dock, so it's not like it was hiding. I thought no problem, it'll start back up when I reboot. No dice. Still just the background, nothing to interact with. Only way to do anything is to reboot into with Ctrl+Alt+Dlt.
how do I fix this? Ha sorry for not reading forums beforehand, as I could've avoided this problem. Haven't found any threads on how to fix it, so I decided to start my own.
I just upgraded to unity and everything is fine. Then I accidentally enabled Desktop Cube and Cube Rotation. Suddenly, the top part of windows that you normally use to drag the window or close it etc. started disappearing. In a panic, I rebooted. Upon reboot I found myself in an even bigger mess than I could have imagined. Not only did this fail to fix the problem previously mentioned, it also caused the sidebar and the ubuntu bar at the top to disappear. Desktop icons still show, and my cursor is fully functional, but other than that, my system is unusable.
today i decided i wanted to use the desktop cube again, so i went through all the compiz settings and got it working in gnome classic. however, when i initiate ratation with the mouse (ctrl>alt>button 1) it is sloooow whenever there is a window open (even just one). rotating away from the workspace with a window does seem to speed up the framerate. when i had maverick 10.10 it was never this slow.
I've got an Hitachi Deskstar 164GB IDE drive which I've somehow managed to upset while attempting to swap distros. I'm guessing its lost the MBR as I can't get a PC to see it except in the BIOS. The BIOS tells me that the primary master has 164GB, Cylinders 65535, Head 16, Precomp 0, Landing zone 65534 and Sector 255. (my understanding of that info is very limited). The PC won't boot direct from the hdd and a live Knoppix disc can't see it. Trying fdisk -l produces no list. (Naturally, I can't install another distro on it either).
I was attempting to create a cube desktop via compizconfig-settings-manager everything crashed. I can bring up a terminal via ctrl alt F1 or get to the Internet by right clicking on screen and change desktop background get more backgrounds on line. Other than that I can not see nor get any icons or make changes.i have Ubuntu 11.04
I am using a Dell Inspiron 14R laptop that came with Windows 7 Home Basic. The partitions of my hard disk before installing Fedora 15 were: Dell (OEM Partition) OS (C: ) (Primary Partition) RECOVERY (Primary Partition) New Volume (E: ) (Logical Drive)
I tried shrinking my C: drive (which has Windows) but couldn't do so hence performed the procedure on E: instead. I did this to create a 15GB unformatted space to install Fedora in. While installing Fedora, I chose the option "Use Free space" under Disk Partitioning Setup but the OS got installed in E: drive. Currently, I am able to use both Windows and Fedora under dual-boot but the problem I am facing is that when working with Windows, I am unable to see drive E: in Computer.
Windows Disk Manager is able to detect the partition and is showing it to be healthy (1st screenshot). Its name now is New Volume and neither am I able to change its path or letter (Error: incorrect parameters) nor am I able to check it using "chkdsk" (Error: cannot open volume for direct access/ GUI doesn't work as well) (2nd screenshot). On the other hand, I am able to access both the partitions in Fedora.
Another point to mention is that after finishing the installation of Fedora, when I started Windows, the Disk Manager as well as Dell DataSafe showed that the Windows Recovery drive had been formatted (maybe inappropriate terminology!) and was no longer retrievable. To rectify this problem, I restored my Windows to before Fedora was installed and I seem to have got the Recovery drive back (1st screenshot) (before doing this, it was nameless and empty).
Normally all I/O goes through the kernel so that it can schedule the operations and prevent processes from stepping on each other. A few special user processes are allowed to slide around the kernel, usually by being given direct access to I/O ports. X servers are the most common example of this isn't it ? give examples for any other processes that are allowed to slide around the kernel ?
I recently installed openSuse 11.2 KDE in a Dell 1535 laptop.
I tried to enable the Cube desktop feature through desktop settings and when I pressed the apply button the system crashed. The screen freezed and the laptop wasn't responding to anything.
So I rebooted the laptop and now every time gets stack in the green screen and trying to load but it never does. I suspect that it has to do with my ATI card because a couple of 3d games would crash the system too. I tried some solutions that I found here like disabling the desktop effects by tweaking kwinrc file but it didn't worked.
Does anyone know how to disable that Cube feature from failsafe mode?
my request is that i have to make all out bound internet connection should go from proxy server , not directly to firewall. Please specify a iptable rule for blocking direct internet access. my clients ip ranges from 192.168.2.20 to 192.168.2.47
In KDE I'm using KWin as windows manager and somewhere in the configuration I defined that KDE should rotate the desktop cube to the left or the right each time I move my mouse pointer to the far left or right of the screen.If I keep it there for about a second it rotates the desktop cube to the next desktop.I once activated this but find this very frustrating when I'm trying to reach buttons on the same side. So I want to disable this feature but I can't find it anywhere. I can't remember where that option was that activated this feature.
