Ubuntu Servers :: Stopping Gnome When Installed From Gnome-core?
Jul 19, 2010
I installed Gnome on my server using the gnome-core and xinit packages so I could use MySQL Workbench.I start up Gnome when I need it via startx./etc/init.d/gdm doesn't exist so I can't use gdm start or gdm stopHow can I stop Gnome and the X server in this situation?
I am running Debian Squeeze 32bit with gnome-core installed. When I alter the acceleration or sensitivity within the pointer speed section of gnome-mouse-properties, my mouse does not act differently. Has anyone else encountered this problem? How can I change my mouse sensitivity? I have installed Debian Lenny previously and I recall that I was capable of changing the sensitivity.
I'm having some problems getting the GUI installed in my Server 10.04 installation.
I've installed the Ubuntu server 10.04 32bit with a VMWare player on a Windows XP Pro host. Everything seems to have gone ok but at the end of the install it said that VMWare items are being installed and while that happens I can only use the terminal mode or I could wait for the GUI to load. Well the GUI never loaded so I logged in through the terminal.
I realized immediately that I'm over my head as I'm more familiar with DOS rather than bash or the terminal commands of Ubuntu. So I tried to look up on the internet (from my host machine) on how to start or install the GUI interface for the server. I've found lots of things that show commands like:
sudo apt-get install gnome gdm
sudo aptitude install gnome-core
but in all cases I get a message that the package is not found. So I'm wondering how do I find the package so that I can install this?
Many people have multi-core cpus supporting frequency scaling now, if you want to see if the workload is being evenly distributed then add as many CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor applets to the Gnome panel as you have cores/cpus. Then right-click each one and select preferences and choose which cpu to monitor.
Now compile a large program or run a cpu intensive game and watch how the workload dances around between the two (hopefully)
Some clever apps like gnome chess will multi-thread and make max use of both cores, sadly many others won't.
i updated to Sid and installed gnome minimal (gnome-core). But, there are 2-3 days ago, Totem and Evolution became gnome-core's dependancies. Actually on Sid, i use VLC and Icedove and when i want to uninstall Totem and Evolution, "aptitude" wants to remove gnome-core too. I would like to know if it's possible to remove these applications without uninstall gnome-core completly?
I'm trying out Fedora 14 on an Asus EeePC 1000 netbook.I'd like to install just the basic Gnome interface, its helper applications and Gedit &cI don't want openoffice or evolution &c on this small net book.How would I go about choosing the appropriate packages at install time?If this is documented anywhere, just point me at the page!
I just upgraded to beta 10.04, & am trying to get GNOME-shell installed. I have downloaded the tar file for it, but when I do ./configure in a terminal, I get the following error messages: No package 'mutter-plugins' found No package 'gjs-gi-1.0' found No package 'gobject-introspection-1.0' found
I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 in a virtual box but it has defaulted to Gnome rather than Unity. I've never used Linux before (had to get it for my software paper at uni) so really have no idea what I'm doing. Does anyone know how to fix this?
I used the PalmOS devices in System Preferences and got my Palm TX to synch. As far at that app goes everything is fine. In Synaptic Package Manager I have gnome-pilot installed. But I can't find where to launch the program. This problem has stumped me a few other times. I'm a recovering MS-WIN IT guy so I know how to find a program in windows when there is no shortcut or entry in Programs. But here in Nixland, I am clueless.
I just installed Debian 8 into a virtual machine, and in the software selection panel I checked "Debian desktop ..." (default) and "gnome". However, after boot the system did not seem familiar. In particular, I did not find any directories that include "gnome" in their name. Question: how to make the system use gnome?
I have no idea what that means the web cam i ordered says "Make sure you have Linux UVC driver installed." How do I check and if I don't have one how do i get one? When installing Squeeze i have to do the text install cause my PC can handle the Graphical instillation for some reason so i installed GNOME with this apt-get install gnome So is a UVC driver included in that instillation?
I'm running opensuse 11.2 with KDE. Today I got a software update notification saying that there was some gnome related packages that needed updating. I just pressed update without thinking about it too much. Then I realized that I'm not using any gnome programs so why do I need gnome-packages? Is there a way to tell if those packages are indeed unnecessary or not. And if so, how do I remove them all safely? I don't like having gnome stuff on my computer if I can avoid it.
I want to sync files from my home directory on my linux server to my local computer. I noticed the instructions for [URL] only has instructions for linux with gnome/kde. can i use dropbox without a gui?
Just installed gnome-Shell in Natty Narwhal. the only problem know is that all the icons have disappeared and the theme has gone to a more "basic" look. No matter what desktop session I choose (Unity, Gnome-Shell, Classic) I can't change anything back since the "appearance" menu seems to have been removed while gnome-shell was being installed.
I'm trying to install a minimal Gnome setup without any of the usually installed apps. Last time I tried this it worked fine but that was a couple of years ago (see this thread if you're interested). The closest I've got so far is to install a CLI system from the alternate install CD and then run:
The problem is that one of these packages (I think that it's gnome-core) installs Epiphany, Evince, Evolution, Gwibber and Ubuntu One which I don't want. how to get a minimal system installed without these apps?
I cannot access ubuntu anymore. I have ubuntu 10.04LTS Lucid Lynx. Ubuntu always prompts me to do updates. On the last update, the system wasn't able to find 4 files online. So it aborted the update and reverted to the previous state. On the next startup I could still access ubuntu. But the startup after that I got the inlog-screen (with username and password), and even with the correct username and password that's as far as it goes. In the lower right corner it says:
Install problem! The configuration defaults for GNOME Power Manager have not been installed correctly contact your administrator. What can I do to access ubuntu again? I can, when I reboot, start up in recovery mode (but I have no clue what to do with the prompt). I can also start up older 'kernels': kernel 2.6.32-30-generic, 2.6.32-29-generic, 2.6.32-28-generic, 2.6.32-24-generic. Each of them also has a recovery mode. Not sure if this is useful at all though. Laptop: AMD Turion(tm) 64 Mobile Technology MT-37, 1.99 GHz, 1,00 GB RAM.
Older machine here that I upgraded to 10.04 after a clean install of 9.10 some months ago. When booting into GNOME, the desktop image flashes on the screen and the second the bars on top and bottom try to appear the system boots out of the desktop and returns to the log on screen. I assume this is a crash of Xserver, but just guessing. Per another page I ran: lspci | grep VGAand returned:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. KM400/KN400/P4M800 [S3 UniChrome] (rev 01)
I know - old machine Typing this from failsafe mode, would be great to hear from someone as to what I can do to get this working in normal mode again.
When i logged into a gnome desktop i got this message: "The GNOME session manager was unable to read file:'/home/(desktop name)/ICEauthority'. If this file exists it must be readable by you for GNOME to work properly. try logging in with failsafe session and removing the file." What commands do i use for that? or do i need to do something else?
I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my Dell GX240. I have severe difficulty logging in. If I try to login on GNOME or GNOME fail safe mode , I just cant get in . I keep getting the login screen again. I am able to go into terminal mode. Sometimes I have to try upto 100 times to login in GNOME or failsafe mode. Once I am in everything is fine. Is there a way to do some troublshooting? Also transfer to USB sticks is very slow - sometimes as slow as 1MB per min. Is this normal with Ubuntu?
I've installed Ubuntu 10.4 and the gnome-panel appears half, as you can see in the attached picture, if I try resolutions over 1024x768.If I kill the gnome-panel and it restarts, or if I change its properties, it became OK, but in startup it appears like the image.I've tried other Gnome 2.3 based distributions and occurs the same issue. With Gnome 2.28 it doesn't occurs. Then ii seems a gnome 2.3 problem.
I'm currently building a ubuntu distro and would like to run a script on GNOME startup. I've read about doing it through the session manager but I have to do it through chroot so I'll need to set it up as a terminal command. Is there a way to add an item to the Session Manager from terminal or, even better, a directory where I can put the script so it will run on start?
I have avant-window-navigator in my startup appplications. This apparently causes gnome to use the Gnome icon theme on boot, instead of the Humanity theme I selected in Preferences->Appearance. I just have to go to Preferences-Appearance again to get the Humanity theme back to work (I don't even have to change any settings, just going there is enough.) When I remove awn from my startup applications, this problem doesn't occur.
I have two desktop environments installed on my Fedora pc. Here it is
Is it still possible to install other desktop environments despite already having installed KDE and GNOME? If I happen to install other desktop environments such as XFCE, LXDE, CDE, EDE, UDE, will I be able to use one particular environment by disabling the rest whenever needed
Deleted my ati drivers accidently during a botched upgrade. Have been trying to fix the problem from things I read on here, made a thread but can't get online to execute it.Found my install dvd tried running repair and in the process deleted my windows partition(anyway to get that back?) and still no previous ati drivers or gnome installed.
When I boot up i see SUSE LINUX not opensuse... no grub So my question is how do I install ati drivers from the dvd and how do I install gnome or kde from install dvd? did i royally mess up and basically now just completely reinstall opensuse 11.2 completely? and if so can I recover files from my deleted windows partition and previous opensuse partition?
