Ubuntu :: Option For Default Terminal Size Gone After Update

Sep 24, 2010

After updating/upgrading my packages this morning, the terminal profile preferences screen (Edit > Profile Preferences) no longer had the option at the bottom for setting the default terminal size. This is a problem because the default size went from the 132x43 I had set it to down to 80x24. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on three machines and had this problem on all of them. After noticing the problem on the first machine, I checked the option screens of the other machines before upgrading. The default size option was there before the upgrades, but after upgrading, it was gone.

Here is the aptitude log from the upgrade:
[UPGRADE] ant 1.7.1-4ubuntu1 -> 1.7.1-4ubuntu1.1
[UPGRADE] ant-gcj 1.7.1-4ubuntu1 -> 1.7.1-4ubuntu1.1
[UPGRADE] ant-optional 1.7.1-4ubuntu1 -> 1.7.1-4ubuntu1.1
[UPGRADE] ant-optional-gcj 1.7.1-4ubuntu1 -> 1.7.1-4ubuntu1.1
[UPGRADE] gnome-terminal 2.29.6-0ubuntu5 -> 2.30.2-0ubuntu1
[UPGRADE] gnome-terminal-data 2.29.6-0ubuntu5 -> 2.30.2-0ubuntu1
[UPGRADE] google-chrome-stable 6.0.472.62-r59676 -> 6.0.472.63-r59945
[UPGRADE] libphonon4 4:4.6.2-0ubuntu5 -> 4:4.6.2-0ubuntu5.1 .....

It's almost surely gnome-terminal or gnome-terminal-data, but I included the full list just in case. What are my options for fixing this? Should I try rolling back the upgrade? Should I not bother with that and just try setting the default terminal size through other means?

Ubuntu :: 10.4 - Setting Default Terminal Window Size To Screen Width

Oct 3, 2010

In 10.4 I had set my default terminal size to my screen width - I type some long commands. After running an update this morning, my terminal comes up in the install default size. Using the preferences dialog, I cannot find the control to set the default width. Has it been removed? I hope I'm looking in the wrong place, but I have a chilling feeling that it's been dropped or perhaps just accidentally commented out.

OpenSUSE :: Change Ghome Terminal Default Size And Position?

Mar 1, 2010

I'd like to make Gnome Terminal always start using this command line: gnome-terminal --geometry=92x49+0+0 However, when I right-click the icon either in Start Menu Favorites or in Application Browser, there is no 'Properties' option where I can configure this. Nor does there appear to be any option in Gnome Terminal Profile Preferences (other than to run something other than the shell when starting Terminal). Anyone know how make this modification so Gnome Terminal will always start in the same size and position?

Fedora Installation :: Partition Size After F14 Install With Resize Option

Apr 11, 2011

I've just installed Fedora 14 over an old Ubuntu (heron, I think). The old install used a single partition for both / and /home; and I wanted to try to avoid reinstalling /home if possible (but yes, I did back it up). I chose the anaconda option to shrink the old Ubuntu /, and created a new LVM for the Fedora /. This seemed to work perfectly. I mounted the old / on '/host' (an old naming habit), and then mounted individual home dirs into /home using autofs. All seemed fine. However, on my first reboot after the autofs mounts fsck failed. The current situation is as follows:

# fsck /dev/sda6
fsck from util-linux-ng 2.18
e2fsck 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)
The filesystem size (according to the superblock) is 15360000 blocks
The physical size of the device is 15359895 blocks
Either the superblock or the partition table is likely to be corrupt!
Abort<y>? yes

# dumpe2fs /dev/sda6 | grep 'Block count'
dumpe2fs 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)
Block count: 15360000
# dumpe2fs -o superblock=32768 /dev/sda6 | grep 'Block count'
dumpe2fs 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)
Block count: 15360000
Same thing for all the other backup superblocks I've tried.
# echo '15360000 4 * p' | dc
# fdisk -s /dev/sda6

Resize2fs tells me to run fsck, and complains of a short read if I try to force. Fsck seems to run fine if I say 'no' to the abort prompt, but doesn't change the problem. Filesystem is ext3. Started with debugfs. First used icheck and ncheck to work out which file(s) had been written to the non-existent blocks past the partition size. Fortunately, there was only one. Deleted that file (can restore it from backup later). Quit debugfs. Now resize2fs -p -f worked perfectly. fsck after resizing was clean. Reboot seems happy. As for the origin of the problem, I would guess there's a rounding bug in the code anaconda uses to shrink partitions.

Ubuntu :: No Option To Automatically Log In Default Keyring?

May 2, 2011

Did a fresh install of 64-bit Natty on day 1, and have an irksome issue when logging in. Once I'm logged in, Keyring prompts me to type the default keyring password. This happens every time I log in.

The problem is, the option to unlock the keyring automatically at login is dimmed, and only the other 3 options are selectable.

I opened the "Passwords and Encryption Keys" applet and saw 2 entries under "passwords", both named "Network secret for Auto [my network name]/802-11-wireless-security/psk". I see no option here to allow either of these to automatically unlock at login.

how I can get Ubuntu to log into my wireless network automatically instead of asking for the default keyring password each time after log in?

Ubuntu :: Panel Looks Crap If Not Default Size?

May 8, 2010

I usually change the default bottom panel settings so that I have it on the right hand edge of the screen, 100 pixels wide and auto hide checked. Until now, this has been fine, but with ubuntu 10.4, it has an awful banded look.

So, I tried using a solid colour and a custom background image and although this improves matters, there is still a banded section at the top that should not be there. When you have a few apps running, the taskbar shows the active app normally, but the background apps are banded again. Is there a way to fix this? It also makes the apps difficult to read.

Ubuntu :: Change Default Size Of Pdf Icons?

Aug 7, 2010

I'm wondering if it's possible to change the default size of pdf and image icons on my whole filesystem because it doesn't look proportional to the other icons like the folders and text files and I really don't want to stretch each one of them everytime.

Here's an example:

The other way the size could be fixed is by going to edit > preferences > preview and just do never for each drop down but I don't want to lose the preview effect.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Maverick - Default Swap Size?

Dec 26, 2010

I recently upgraded my laptop from 10.04, to 10.10. -- And in so doing reinstalled the OS from scratch, and letting the system pick the partition sizes.

My system:
160 GB HDD
HP 6910p

Here's the question: The Installer set aside 6GB as Swap space, leaving 154GB as a / partition for everything. I had always thought 2GB was plenty, or as a general rule twice the Physical Memory size, which would only be 4GB swap, not 6.

Can / should I reclaim some of that swap space, if so how much. -- I can using tools like GParted to resize the partitions. -- Or just leave it as is. Unfortunately, the Ubuntu 10.10 installed did not seem to use GParted, so it was a little harder to set up initially.

Software :: Backup Size Limiting - BackInTime Doesn't Have An Option To Limit Disk Space Used

Oct 15, 2010

I have BackInTime backing up my computer to a RAID cluster. The problem is that BackInTime doesn't have an option to limit disk space used. I also use this drive as a fileserver, and need to be able to keep some space open for that.

Is there a way that I can limit the amount of space a specific folder can take up? Alternately, is it possible to create a disk image that will only take up the amount of space in the image, but can automatically expand to a certain size? It would work similar to the Mac SpaseBundle format.

Ubuntu :: Desktop Icons - Change The Default Size?

Jul 3, 2010

I cannot figure out how to make my desktop icons smaller. I know I can right click and "stretch icon", but that only resizes them individually. If I can change the size of them individually,Im thinking I can also, somehow change the default size, of all of them at once.I am currently working on some graphics projects for the observatory and it's easiest to save them to my desktop for now.but they are so big ,that before i know it, they are overlapping each other. stretching them to a smaller size one by one is a time killer.Usually I dont keep icons on my desktop, only the icons for my external drives and the like.

Ubuntu :: Lost Default Icon Size In Nautilus?

May 28, 2011

some reason I lost my default icon sizes in Nautilus. This only appears to affect any graphic files like .jpg, .png, etc. that I keep in my "Pictures" folder. I also have this issue with video files that I keep in my "Video" folder.Currently I am running Ubuntu Natty and using the Ambiance theme that is customized with Faenznt icons. Nautilus is customized with Nautilus Elementary. Changing themes has no effect. The folders all appear normal and other icon file types appear normal, it's just my graphic d video files that are appearing small.Running dconf editor shows my icon setting is set to normal. I am enclosing a pic so you can see the folders display at a normal size, but the graphic files do not.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot: How To Change The Default Option

Oct 3, 2010

I've installed Windows 7 Ultimate on a notebook which previously ran Vista. No problems there.I've now installed Ubuntu (now updated to 10.04)so that it can boot to either OS.

It all works fine and when I first power up, I get a screen which invites me to select the OS I want to use. There are however two problems:

1) it defaults to Ubuntu (whereas I would prefer it to default to Windows 7 (it's a work laptop and most of the applications are Windows-specific),

2) the list of choices is getting increasingly complex with an expanding list of choices (with each major update of Ubuntu adding more); it even seems to include an option to go back to Vista!As long as I move down the list and make the right selection quite speedily, I get to where I want to be (though, as I say, I would like to change the default option).Is there any way I can edit/shorten this list without damaging the functionality and how can I change that default?
