Ubuntu :: Reduce Desktop Window Size Within Screen?

Aug 23, 2010

Can the size of the Ubuntu desktop window be reduced so that it displays on a monitor or via a data projector with a surrounding black border? If so, how? The tragicomic chain of events which leads to the question is as follows. Community group, short of cash, want to equip lecture room. Pull-down screen is set up permanently on one wall. Contractor sets up old data projector via ceiling mount. Data projector is just too far away from wall, such that image cannot be reduced sufficiently by the data projector to fit on the screen.

Annoyingly the image, as displayed, is only slightly too large - just enough to lose the top and bottom panels, Applications menu, File Menu on full-size windows, Indicator applet, Trash, and restore desktop button. The data projector is hooked up via VGA cable to a recycled PC running Ubuntu 10.04 with proprietary NVidia driver (version 173) for GeForce 8400 GS. I'll give anything to be able to do this on the PC, rather than having to move the projector!

Server :: Reduce RAID5 Partition Sizes / Reduce The Size Of Md1 And Grow Md0?

Feb 14, 2010

I have a rack of four 1TB drives all partitioned identically with three primary partitions. On each drive

- the first partition is only 64MB;
- the second is a large 900GB partition and
- the last holds all the remaining space

mdadm has been used to set up
/dev/md0 - RAID1, comprised of /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1
/dev/md1 - RAID5, comprised of /dev/sda2, /dev/sdb2, /dev/sdc2, /dev/sdd2
/dev/md2 - RAID5, comprised of /dev/sda3, /dev/sdb3, /dev/sdc3, /dev/sdd3

OK, so it was a silly mistake to make - but I am now need to increase the size of /dev/md0. My thinking is to reduce the size of md1 so that I can grow md0.

On md1 I have two logical volumes. I've successfully reduced the size of the volume so that I can reduce the size of md1. Now I'm at the nervous stage; I can find little written on the topic of shrinking RAID5 arrays - and even if I do this I'm unsure if I can move partitions around to regain the space I so desire.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Desktop Does Not Remember Window Position / Size?

Jul 7, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

The issue is that Gnome will not "remember" the size and location of the window in which an app was last run. For example - I run Disk Usage Analyzer and stretch the window to be the full height of the screen and about half the width of the screen and move it to the far left of the desktop. I then close the app. The next time I run it the app comes up in a "default" window size, not the size I last used, positioned randomly on the desktop.

p.s. I should add that some apps seem to remember their prior window size/position. For example OpenOffice.org, Firefox, Nautilus.

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.

I'm new to Ubuntu Netbook Remix. I love it. I'm using it for web dev with a LAMP and Rails installed. Everything is peachy.I would much prefer the icons in the launcher to be a lot smaller though, anyone have any idea how to scale them down? I reckon about 75% the size they are now would be about perfect.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Reduce Avi Video File Size?

Jun 7, 2010

I have rendered out less than two minutes of High Definition animation to Avi-Jpeg Format in Blender. Now, I have this 2 GB file. Going at this rate, it's going to take a whole DVD set to play a 15 min movie.

Surely, this file doesn't need 2 GB just for 1:45 min/sec, right? Even at high def? How do I reduce this file size down to like a manageable number, say, 20 miB?

General :: LV Reduced In VG Now / Reduce The FS And Partiton Size Of The PV?

Oct 18, 2010

I have a HDD that has 2 partitions. the 2nd partition is the VG and I want to reduce its size. I have reduced the Largest LV in the VG and now have free space in the VG. But, I am clueless on how to proceed to reduce the partiton size so that I can use it for another need.

When done, I expect to have 3 parttions total on the HDD. But first, I could some help in understanding the steps necessary for me to take, to move the free space out of the partition that has the Volume Group. Then, i can use fdisk on that 3rd partition for my needs.

I already know how to expand a Volume group by adding PVs, but, I do NOT know and cannot find how to reduce it to recover the free space in the VG to be used in a new partiton. (Better explained..."I want to reduce the physical partition size that the VG represents.)

General :: Reduce /var Filesystem Size - Impact?

May 10, 2010

I need to create a temporary Filesystem and the only way to do it is to reduce /var and create a new filesystem 3GB size

df -h
9.7G 1.5G 7.8G 16% /var

my question is according to google search I need to umount the filesystem point in order to reduce its size.... so it means I will require that nobody uses the system? since /var logs a lot information?

I also have the option to reduce /root but I think is more complicated.

so what are the precautions in order to reduce /var/?

General :: Access Desktop Over VNC At A Different Screen Size?

Apr 14, 2011

I've already installed x11vnc and have it running well on my laptop upstairs. I can access my existing desktop session with no real problems, it works great. The problem I'm running into is the fact that I'm accessing my computer upstairs which is driving two 1920x1080 monitors, accessing it by VNC on my 1280x800 laptop (meaning I have to scroll a 3840x1080 desktop on my 1280x800 screen. I've looked into running multiple VNC screens, but this doesn't seem to be the best solution, and I don't know if I can do this with x11vnc. I know that I can run native VNC screens at different geometries, but I don't think that this helps much, as each VNC screen is essentially a new session running basically nothing.

A while back in my sys-admin days, I remember having to set up a desktop environment on a Fedora machine. What was cool was that each VNC screen I created launched the default desktop environment. It "just worked," no fuss. Mind you, it wasn't the same desktop on each screen, but it worked.

Debian :: Reduce Swap Size On Encrypted Drive?

Apr 30, 2016

I installed Debian 8 Jessie with full disk encryption and chose to have everything on the same partition. After install, I notice that my 8GB laptop has a 16GB swap. Is there a way to reduce the swap to 8GB (or maybe 4) whilst not affecting the encryption?

I have a 1TB HDD so space is not an issue but I dislike such waste. The setup used LVM.

General :: LVM2 On F10 - Reduce LVM Size And Remove 2 HDDs?

Oct 15, 2009

I have the following HDDs in an LVM2 configuration on an F10 box running Mythtv :-

# pvscan
PV /dev/sda2 VG VolGroup00 lvm2 [297.88 GB / 0 free]
PV /dev/sdd1 VG VolGroup00 lvm2 [931.50 GB / 0 free]
PV /dev/sdb1 VG VolGroup00 lvm2 [298.06 GB / 0 free]
PV /dev/sdc1 VG VolGroup00 lvm2 [931.50 GB / 0 free]
Total: 4 [2.40 TB] / in use: 4 [2.40 TB] / in no VG: 0 [0 ]

The system never uses more than about 250GB of HDD at any one time, so I would like to remove /dev/sdd1 and /dev/sdc1 from the LV and then from the machine and leave /dev/sda and /dev/sdb alone.

Does anyone know that if I use the command "system-config-lvm" to reduce the total LVM size to say 580GB, whether all data is preserved (I don't have any way at this stage to backup up 250GB of data, unless I buy more HDDs and that is the whole point of this exercise anyway - remove the two terrabyte drives to be used as backup disks).

Once I am happy that the data is safe, I will use "pvmove" and "vgreduce" to remove both terrabyte drives.
