I'm using Fedora 12 with Gnome and I have a slight problem with my places menu. I have entries in the list that I would like to remove, but cannot figure out how. I multiboot Fedora with Windows 7 and windows 98. My Places menus looks something like this:
Places Code: Home Folder Desktop Music .....
Now, if you notice there are 2 entries for both my 'Storage' and 'Windows 98' partitions. On of them will actually open up a window showing the contents of the partition, the other displays an error which basically says "Unable to mount, drive is already mounted". Right clicking on the entry has the same effect as left clicking, it just brings up the error message. They do not appear in the Bookmarks menu.
I have a file of the formcol1, col2, $330,000, col4 ...col1, col2, col3, col4 ..col1, col2, $230,000, col4 ...The comma within the currency value causes the column to display unevenly when I open it so I want to remove it. I think I should be able to use the sed command but I am not sure extactly how. All the values have 3 digits after the $ and before the , so have triedsed -e 's/$[0-9]*,/ but I am not sure how to 'replaced with the string found just without the comma'So two guestions:1. Is this a good way to do it?2. How do I do it
I currently dual boot and wish to know how to remove the Windows partition/drive while still allowing Ubuntu 9.04 to load safely as my main OS. I know how to restore windows partition by;
If MBR gets damaged boot from MS Windows Xp disc, Select "R" for "recovery console", select main windows installation drive (admin password usually nothing, just press enter) and type "FIXMBR" this will allow you to boot windows again, but Ubuntu partition will be unbootable and require installing ubuntu again to dual boot.
But this leaves Ubuntu partition Un-bootable as it removes the grub menu, how would I do the same for Ubuntu and make window partition un-bootable so I can remove it?
how to remove an "Open With" Entry in the right click menu in Nautilus? I accidentally created an entry for all "folder" type of files for "Code::Blocks", so every time I right click a folder, I get an "Open With Code::Blocks IDE" option.
what i did was, remove evolution mail from synaptic, what i wanted to do was just remove the indicator applet from the task bar. i read a bunch of bad stuff about removing evolution from synaptic vs just removing the applet.
im worried. did i break anything or put my security at risk. after, i used a command (older) (sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop)to install ubuntu desktop. because i thought that it would fix evolution. then i went to synaptic and installed a package called evolution. i rechecked evolution in applications menu. however, i notice that i have both a checkable evolution and two evolution icons. nothing 'seems' broken. im not sure if it ever was. and evolution calender pops up as normal, as does the the installed plain evolution. they both seems to be an exact copy of the other.
all i really wanted to do was remove the indicator applet. did i make a serious mistake. since ive had ubuntu, ive reformatted a lot because i was worried i made a mistake of some kind. however now im into the more "make a mistake and fix it stage' as im pretty happy with my current desktop and have worked hard to customize it. the command, sudo apt-get remove indicator-messages removed the mail icon. i still am worried that i broke something, or put my security at risk. also, now i have two mail icons. evolution mail and calendar, and another just called evolution.
I know a bunch of commands and I am comfortable using the terminal, I even set a powerpc server but I can't figure out how to remove epiphany on this new computer I'm setting up. I didn't install anything with tasksel. I installed gnome and xorg afterwards... I load it up and 'startx' just fine. then I check around for the programs that were installed. I lik'em gimp, lot's of utilities. gedit. anyway I find epiphany, which I have already established that I dislike, I immediately go to the root terminal (another nice program that comes with gnome) and type apt-get remove epiphany-browser-data the output says it will be deleting gnome... however I have researched and found these are simpy meta packages that don't really matter.... however under the section that states all the packages that will be removed by autoremove there is a huge list... I doubt these packages are safe to remove. how to remove epiphany without removing a huge amount of probably needed software
These should be my last pleas for help with regard to Fedora 13. I've been unable to turn off the notifications that appear in the top right corner, despite a decent amount of searching on google. I can't remove any notifications package without removing a bunch of important software along with it. Also, F13 refuses to "Safely Remove" either of my external disks. I have to yank out the usb cord, touching wood each time.
I have the following error on one of my servers. Is there a way to tell which directory is exactly having the problem? if there is, if i delete that directory, will that resolve the problem or no?kernel: EXT2-fs error (device md(9,0)): ext2_check_page: bad entry in directory #10158084: unaligned directory entry - offset=0, inode=605471640, rec_len=7606, name_len=177
I've downloaded VideoLan (VLC) via Yast but the icon was placed in the audio folder. How do I move it to the video player folder? Also, where are additional icons stored? I run SuSE 11.2 (boxed version) with KDE.
So, I have this application called Impact, it is an explicit time integration Finite Elements code written in Java...
I untar the pack, and launch the application calling a script, from within the untarred folder,
This launches a gui which allows me to setup a case, which needs some setup file, tipically some *.in and a mesh file, tipically some *.msh.
Other mode of executuion consists of calling the setup file as argument to Impact.sh script ( CLI execution mode, for g33k5 )
My problem is : I have packed the whole stuff into a Slackware .tgz, that places it in /usr/local/Impact, and placed a calling script in /usr/local/bin,
I decided to hack the ImpactGUI_OGL_linux_amd64.sh script from
even after adding /usr/local/Impact/bin to PATH... won't go...
I can run this thing from within its directory... but I do not like messing within the directories of my applications, this is why I sent this to /usr/local, and placed a calling script in /usr/local/bin...
I am trying to troubleshoot an application that is generating several segfaults with an error 14, but the application is not crashing.The program continues to run. I would assume I can connect to a running process to debug it, but I'm not sure what to gather. The program has several background processes associated with it so I'm sure I'll need to attach to the actual internal process. Does anyone have any experience in this to offer some insight?
I just installed archlinux to try it out and need to add the entry to Grub.
I formated the hard drive with the a root partition for arch of 42Gb and ubuntu can see it perfeclty.
When I was installing arch I made a mistake and installed grub again, overwriting my previous grub with my ubuntu and windows entries.
So I fixed and got my working grub back with SuperGrubDisk, but now I want to add the ARCHLINUX entry to Grub and dont know how. I have added the previous entries from the grub that ARCH installed and moved the initrd and vmlinuz files to the /boot directory on ubuntu, but it doesnt work. I did a similar thing with Acronis True Image rescue cds(to avoid having to insert the cd in order to use it) and it worked like a charm, but I am lost in this one.
Here are my partitions, sdb is the one where all my partitions and files are (sdb5 is where ARCH is), the other 2 are backups:
Disk /dev/sda: 2000.4 GB, 2000398934016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 243201 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0xda85214c
When I click on the "shutdown, logout, suspend etc."-button in the upper right corner there is no option to hibernate my machine. I've got suspend, reboot and shut down, but no hibernate. What would be the reason for this?
If it should tell anyone anything, my computer is a Packard Bell TJ71 laptop with the following lspci output:
Here is my current setup. I have installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit, and BackTrack 4 Final in that order. All operating systems are able to boot and all is working well. The only problem I'm faced with is really just an annoyance. Which is BackTrack is showing up with a "Ubuntu 8.10" entry name.
Now I did some research on this. I found out that BackTrack was based on the Ubuntu 8.10 OS so it makes sense why it would show up that way. I found several articles and topics explaining how to modify the GRUB programming files. I guess to change the entry name, but all of them don't seem fool proof to me nor the best way to go about doing things.
One thing I wasn't able to find info on is where GRUB2 actually gets these entry names from. My theory is if I can find out where GRUB gets this info from, I can simply log into the BackTrack partition and change where the "Ubuntu 8.10" entry is to "BackTrack 4" and then run the update-grub2 command within Ubuntu to update the entry names.
I share a computer with my brother. It runs Lucid Lynx. I want to add an entry to the hosts file that will affect him negatively. Is there a way I can add the entry, without it affecting him, like, is there a user-specific hosts file?
I seem to be having some issue with GRUB. I installed the kernel update just last night and when I went to turn on my computer today my entry to Win 7 was gone.I am able to boot into Lucid with ease but what happened to Windows 7 all of a sudden? I was using it just y-day and restarted to boot into Lucid to catch up on any updates.
It also appears that my 1 TB HDD isn't appearing either. Kernel update gone bad?
I have a pc where there was redhat installed, and I decided to put ubuntu in dual boot.The installation went ok, but now I can't log in with redhat anymore. RH was installed on a RAID partition, and I installed ubuntu on an additional HD.
Now I have two problems:
a) I cannot boot red hat, since there is no such entry in the grub b) this machine had several users, that now cannot access it remotely anymore.
Below you can find the output of fdisk -l and the grub.cfg files, the old red hat one, and the new one created by ubuntu. Not that in any case I cannot reinstall redhat, since there are other people using the machine.
I was cleaning old kernels from Grub menu, all sorted except for a vista entry that i could not delete. Ran this line which I found,"sudo chmod -x /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober", to remove unwanted entries, now only the linux entry left in Grub menu, windows 7 entry gone. The vista entry was from an old install which is not there anymore. Running 10.10 at the moment which is dualbooted with win7.
I have installed Sabayon 5.4 on my laptop besides Ubuntu 10.10. During installation of Sabayon I did not opt for a bootloader as I did not want to disturb the already existing Grub2 on MBR from my Ubuntu installation.After successful installation of Sabayon, I booted into Ubuntu and updated the Grub which detected Sabayon correctly. Then I rebooted and tried to boot into Sabayon but I could not do so. The booting process stopped with the following error -
Code: Activating mdev Detected real-root as md device. Setting up device node Scanning for Volume Groups
So evidently, Grub has wrongly taken the values of root as /dev/md0 and swap as /dev/sda2.I again went back to Grub2 screen edited the Sabayon entry by replacing /dev/md0- with /dev/sda4 and swap:/dev/sda2 with swap:/dev/sda8 and pressed Ctrl+x. Now I was able to boot into Sabayon. how do I make these changes permanent. Which files should I edit so that Grub correctly read root as /dev/sda4 and swap as /dev/sda8?
I'm currently dual-booting slack 13.0 and ubuntu 10.04 When slack was originally installed, I had an earlier version of ubuntu on it, and lilo did not pick up the ubuntu. At that time, I didn't care, because I had no use for the 'old' ubuntu. When I installed ubuntu 10.04, the boot config file (/boot/grub/grub.cfg) did include an entry for slackware. Great! I am looking forward to upgrading slack to 13.1, but I want to make sure this time that I can also boot ubuntu, should I need to use it.
1)Slack installation instructions that would enable me to include the other distro in the initial install
2)Instructions on how to edit andprocess lilo.conf after the slack What follows is a dump of df from the ubunutu 'side'..
tim@bart:~$ df Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/sda6 52866604 6227476 43953640 13% / none 1478976 300 1478676 1% /dev
I have installed ubuntu 9.10 and everything was working fine. Just a minutes ago a window popped up telling me that a complete update couldn't be completed, and asked me to go on with a partial update. I did it and then a window popped up (I think it was debconf running) asking me if I wanted to delete phpmyadmin database configuration or if I wanted to keep it... seemed like the updater was removing quite a bunch of packages!
After that I was presented with a long list of packages to be removed (among them apache2, php5, linux headers, etc.) I thought it was going to remove them in order to reinstall them latter, so I let it go) but now there's no ubuntu entry in the grub menu, so I had to boot with windows! Right now I'm downloading ubuntu 9.10 livecd to give it a try...
