I want to know if there is any way that one could remove the user list from the login screen requiring the user to type in their user name. I am not quite sure why this feature is not implemented and it is one of the very few things I don't like about Lucid but hopefully there is a fix for it.
In Ubuntu 9.10 I was able to remove the user list from gdm. However in 10.04 I am unable to do this. I searched the forums with no luck. I opened gconf-editor using sudo and went to apps>gdm>simple-greeter. I then checked disable_user_list. After complete shutdown, I was still placed in the list screen. I checked gconf-editor and the disable_user_list was still checked.
All I want is for my bootloader to show "Ubuntu" & "Windows XP" which are the only 2 OS's I have installed (dual booting). At the moment it shows Windows XP, Ubuntu, Ubuntu recovery mode & like 2 more.. which are also Ubuntu & recovery mode. I've never selected the other Ubuntu ones, only the first one. So, how can I remove the ones I don't want to show on the list.
I can add my own wallpapers to the list shown in the Desktop Activity Settings box, but can't find a way to remove them again. Is there a control for this somewhere else, or a config file somewhere that I could at least edit manually? I am using KDE 4.4.2, with the kubuntu-desktop package installed on top of Lucid/GNOME.

But when I look in my sources.list, the PPA repository is not there. Nevertheless I SUSPECT I'm receiving it's updates.Is there a file that PPAs are being written to other than sources.list?Should I manually update sources.list in order to add this PPAs?
have installed some programs from source and found no trace where and what were installed and I would like to remove those installed files. So I am looking for any script or app to list all orphaned (I mean not related to any installed package) files. I am using Ubuntu Server 9.10 without any fancy X11 stuff so console version is preferred. I have found bitbleach and computer janitor in this forum but they are X11 apps.

I am running 10.10 and I can't figure out how to move or remove the windows list... all other items I can select and move or remove normally. also, if I try and start "panel" from the menu it starts to open but then quits.
how to change (rename, delete) lines from boot list in grub 2, Ubuntu 10.04? For example, when I boot my pc, I have a boot list with options "Ubuntu 10.04", "memtest" and "Windows 7". I want to delete "memtest" line, as I don't need it, and rename "Windows 7" line to, for example, "Windows 117". How can I do that? Where I should look and edit? In old grub it was enough to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst, but in Ubuntu 10.04 there is no such file and other grub2-related files (like grub.cfg) do not contain this info to rename or delete lines. So, I can't figure out what to do.
I recently got an iPhone 3g and have been trying to upload music onto my device with Rhythmbox because my computer exclusively runs Ubuntu (10.04 LTS, Lucid Lynx). Rhythmbox would show files that were dragged and dropped as being on the iPhone, and they appeared in the iPhone's folders, but they weren't recognized in the iPod player. I followed a variety of forum threads to try to fix the problem, but ended up creating a whole new set of problems with my package manager.
I get this error message before package manager opens: E: Type 'n' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pmcenery-ppa-lucid.list E: The list of sources could not be read. Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
And this message after I close the first error message window and the package manager opens: An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information. report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:
'E:Type 'n' is not known on line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pmcenery-ppa-lucid.list, E:The list of sources could not be read.' Does anyone have any recommendations on how to fix this? If it isn't already apparent, I am very inexperienced working with ubuntu, so the more detailed the response, the better.
I don't know why I can't get listed the installed and not installed packages in the "Add and Remove Software" utility in Fedora 11 with KDE Desktop. I have already used it with no problems, but for some reasons I had to reinstall the system, and I got this problem since then. So, I can't remove packages because the list is empty (picture attached), and for the same reason I can't add new sofware from the Installation DVD.
I mistakenly moved a folder to the trash where it is stuck. I have tried moving it back to its original location using 2 methods, drag and drop, menu -edit- move. I also tried moving the files within the folder out indivdually though I get the same message.When trying, I get an error message Quote:Error while copying "mlmeTypes.rdf"There was an error copying the file into media/(location)/(file name).Show more detailsItems in the trash may not be modifiedI am glad it isn't something important! not this time at least.
i know that the evolution icon on the panel is part of the indicators stuff, but is there any way to remove the evolution icon without removing the indicators? maybe configuring the indicator stuff to not show evolution? i looked into removing evolution, but it seems to be really embedded.
I recently ran "sudo apt-get autoremove" in the terminal and I was given an error message citing the following:
I believe this is a result of a failed Banshee Media Player installation that left the specific package installed. I ended up removing Banshee entirely. I have tried using Synaptic Package Manager and Computer Janitor to remove the package, but neither has worked, both returned the error exit status 2 message. Computer stats are in my signature.
I have a load of partitioned hard drives and even though the are refrenced in fstab I still get Bookmark Icons and they are also visable in 'Computer'How do you remove these icon?I would also like the ones not refrenced in fstab to only be mountable via password - lucid seems to just mount when you click, I did change this as in another post but it also made USB keys need a password

My girlfriend has a Toshiba Satellite Athlon64 laptop, and she can't get it to go past the user list dialog before it logs all the way in. We've tried her username and password, but every time we enter it, the screen blanks for a moment and then returns to the user list dialog. I've reset the password by booting to terminal, but it still won't let us past the dialog. I'd hate to have to reinstall her system. Is there any way we can get past this? And, why is it not accepting the password? I couldn't find an open bug on this issue.
Also, we had just installed OpenShot Video Editor during the same session. She said she got it from the Synaptic Package Manager. I'm not sure if this messed with her video settings. We can see X trying to start after we put the password in, but it keeps going back to the user list dialog. Actually, I uninstalled OpenShot and gnome-screensaver from the root prompt, just in case they were causing the issue. I had noticed that the laptop was buggy coming in and out of hibernation. I wonder if that's causing X not to start properly? I did check the startup logs and I didn't see any errors there either.
Is there a way I can list all open files by a user? I found the command lsof but it the command lists too many files some of which are not used directly by the user. What I want is to view only the files that are currently open like text files, documents, pictures etc and not other system files.
Every time I log into my Ubuntu machine I have to enter my username (manually type it in)as firstname.lastname@example.org then put in my password.I can see local users are displayed on the welcome page, how can I add my domain user to the pick list, so I can just select it then tap in my password?
I've recently installed suse x64 kde in dual boot mode with windows. I have 2 primary partitions with ntfs with 1 for windows7 boot and other for data/storage. There is no boot provision for data partition. SUSE install is on extended partition. I am unable to run fdisk -l and boot info script for some reason, kde is freaking me out (used to use gnome for last 4 years). The GRUB shows data as a boot and it added an entry in its menu. I will like to remove that entry from menu list.
