Ubuntu :: Program To Edit Grub For Add A Picture Behind The Letters Add New Lines And Change The Name Of The Menus
Oct 29, 2010
So I've been trying to find a program to edit grub ,so that I'll be able to add a picture behind the letters add new lines,and change the name of the menus. I know in Backtrack that I used a program,I don't really remember which one it was,I think KGrubEditor,but that is a KDE app,and I cannot find a place where I could download it anyway. Do you guys know any alternative,or any way I could do this? I know how to edit grub.cfg,but I want some features besides that.
I have an old Compaq Pro desktop with Ubuntu 8.04 installed. been using it without a major problem until four days ago. When I attempted to boot all I got was a screen with green vertical lines at the top and horizontal yellow, red, and orange lines below that. Since I recently had downloaded a new kernal I tried to use another kernal but that got the same result. I tried to boot with a live cd and finally got it to boot in low graphics mode. I have also tried to boot into the safe mode and tried the recovery option.got the following warning:xserver-xorg postinst warning: overwriteing possibly customized configuration file; backup in /etc/X11/xorg.conf .20100323151611I have no idea what that means or what I should do. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I would really hate to wait the 30 some odd days for 10.04 to come out.
I have installed QCAD from ubuntu software center. Unable to locate it in the menu. Presently using terminal to access the program. Went to applications, right click mouse-clicked on edit menus-nothing happened.Went to preferences - clicked on Main menu - nothing happened.
When I was using Ubuntu 10.10 I was able to add menus, edit and delete them from the main menu by right clicking on the menu and selecting Edit menus [URL]. After installing Ubuntu 11.04, I found that I can't add, edit or delete any menu. Any one knows how to add, edit and delete menus from the main menu?
I am running 11_4, KDE4.7 I loaded CinePaint cinepaint-0.25-3.10.x86_64.rpm from the multimedia:color_management/openSUSE_11.4 repo. It opens, but crashes if I try to load a jpg for edit or try to create a new picture.
The default menus in XFCE don't include many things that I want to use from KDE. How can I get those on the XFCE menus? There is a so-called "menu editor" in the settings menu, but it has no documentation
I'm converting my parents to ubuntu, so they stop complaining about how slow there windows installation is. I've only come to one problem now. my mom is in love with this Microsoft Picture It program, where she can fix red eyes, chance colors, contrast, tints, ect. Is there a program I can get for ubuntu thats very simple like Picture it? she is extremely computer illiterate, so the easier the better.
I have lirc but I haven't got the hang of it yet. Ive have made a lircmap.xml and put that file in /.xbmc/userdata but xbmc still doesn't respond to it. I have even tried /.xbmc/userdata/keymaps and nothing. You can say that I have lost faith in lirc. I there a program that can translate remote control signals to regular keyboard letters?
my Setup is Fedora 14 x64 + radeon hd 4830 i've downloaded .run package from ati site with latest driver for x64 systems. installed it, but didn't edited grub.conf becouse i didn't understood anything there (probably didn't spent enough time to get things understand) Now i've lost possibility to enter my Fedora system. during boot it lost it's modern blue boot screen (with filling drop), it was replaced by standard old boot screen with triple-color stripe. after this boot screen monitor start blinking going on and off. and on last step i'm getting "Fedora 14 boot bla bla bla something" on screen. nothing works except Ctrl+Alt+Delete. system reboots showing successful daemons shutting sequence. How can i edit grub menu from initial grub screen is it possible to it's own 'e' option or 'c' from grub command line?
At first I apologize if the subject was in the wrong place The reason is that I do not speak English And enlisted Google to translate can I register and add this topic I have a question: Can I change the password to be one of three numbers or three letters only
I use ubuntu 10.04
Note: I know the old password I just want to change
I run apache on a non standard port(82).I just installed unity to play around with it and while I was playing with it I installed prixfixe through software center to edit the menus.While prixfixe was installing my computer was acting very slow which was odd, but not completely unusual.During this time I ran ps aux which showed that my apache server was taking up most of the processing power.I was about to stop my web server,but I waited just in case the web server was updating a few things (I run ampache).
My computer finished installing the software and then I ran some command with sudo (I can't remember what the command was), but it threw back some message saying "setid blabla". I restarted my computer and when I got to my gdm my normal user account did not show up. There were no accounts and the restart/shutdown buttons didn't work.Now I'm running on a livecd and checking out my apache access logs, apache error logs,and kernel logs,but nothing looks out of place..
I'm working on changing some badly named files, lots of them. I have a little script I use to change uppercase to lowercase:
Bear in mind all these files have appropriate numbers in the front of each filename. I need help to change ONLY the first letter after each underscore to an uppercase letter. I'm sure this can be done but I've done so much searching in forums and with Google/linux until I'm scrambled.
I am looking for a program that would be able to recover some of my pictures. They seem to be corrupt. I know that there are several programs, really quite simple to use, to download from the web such as "Art Plus Digital Photo Recovery" and "PixRecovery". I was wondering if there are similar programs out there that can be installed on Ubuntu? Also, I have to mention it, when I try to open them with the "Image Viewer" an error message pops out which says : Could not load image 'picture.JPG'. Beneath that there is also this : Error interpreting JPEG image file (Improper call to JPEG library in state 200).
i try do modify BASHRC and ENVIRONMENT files on directory ETCthen all the command don't work, such as:SUDO, GEDIT, NAUTILUS, NANO and some others!now i want to edit the 2 files and delete the insert lines
Recently I faced a problem in typing in English in OpenSuse 11.3.When I try to type in English it shows me Greek letter and worse than that I think it is really Greek (not only in font) because when I enter my passwords or try to type a command in terminal I get error,I tested with UK and USA and all other English languages and I still have this problem. I even do reset in my keyboard layout setting and in KDE setting but it didn't help.
Can anyone tell me what is the best program on Ubuntu that will download picture files in Raw format from my Nikon D3000 and correct them, and do the usual stuff to make a colour-balanced, photo that can be saved in another format - say Tiff?
Today I decided to customise my Ubuntu by installing my own picture over the default picture used in the log-in screen. I did a search and found it (in /usr/share/backgrounds). I looked into it a bit and found that the image was a .jpg with the name changed to a .png extension. I though I copied the title of it but must have hit the wrong button.
I put my picture in the folder. I then copied the name of the file, then deleted it. I went to paste the name over my new picture, and then found that I had hit the wrong button to copy it. When I delete things I usually hold shift to perma-delete it, so it isn't in the bin. Oh btw, I did this before in 10.04 and it worked in case anyone wants to do the same. It just needs to be a .jpg file, renamed to end with .png
<Edit> Got it fixed. Didn't put the correct res in the xorg.conf file...Sheesh...None the less, this is the moment that I do a little dance around my little space...I got current up and running with only asking this dumb question...Hoo howdy...It's GRRRRRRRRRRRREAT...Now to test to see if everything I had on 12.2 will compile...So far gbdfed is not doing so.../edit>Sorry if this has been posted before, and I will look for it later if no one replies, I'm just bloody burnt out at the moment...Hooked up 122gb hd, and rather than spend the hours reading up on dd, I decided to try 13.0...Lo and behold my 845g didn't work, which I had suspected would have been the prob...So I fuddled around, read, and read, and read some more...Upgraded to current, based on a thread here...Forgot to check lilo for any errors...Hoo boy, what fun...Current changed the drives from hd# to sd#. Had to use my old zenwalk 5.2 disk to chroot in order to fix that. Then something else went wrong. Well, now I know what mkinitrd is good for, . Well, fuddling around some more, installing this intel driver, installing that intel driver until I finally found something that worked...However, I get better frame rate with glxgears than I did on 12.2, but when I move any windows they are a little choppy, plus the little tiny fonts which is rather annoying...Anyway, what else should I look at? Could it be xinarama support which I don't need?
