Ubuntu :: Specifying Which Desktops Programs Open In?

Jul 3, 2010

(I have no doubt this had been asked before, but Googling has turned up numerous results - many of which are written with the assumption that you're a Linux Pro, which I'm certainly not. If there is a more relevant thread already active please point me towards it.)I'm looking for a tool, or console command, to tell certain programs to automatically open on a specific desktop. i.e. Instead of TweetDeck, Thunderbird and Pidgin all appearing on Desktop 1 when I open them up, I want Thunderbird to always live on Desktop 4, TweetDeck to always live on Desktop 3, etc.

Ubuntu :: Freezing Programs On Inactive Desktops

Oct 14, 2010

I've come accross a problem after upgrading to Maverick. I use multiple desktops and I run multiple apps, in every desktop.

The problem is, it seems the apps which are running in the desktop which is not active freezes.. it happened twice that I launched a console application, and it started to run all ok (it was a scientific computation who takes 3-4 hours to get completed); I then switched to another desktop and left the pc, and after 10 hours I discovered that the app was still at the beginning of the simulation! The only explanation I have thought of is that the app is being paused by the system, but things like these never happened with previous versions of Ubuntu.. And the freeze does not happen instantly, but probably after a few minutes..

General :: Is It Legal To Open A Small Business To Setup (Ubuntu) Desktops / Create Websites

Oct 8, 2009

Since Ubuntu and other Linux Distros are free to download and distribute. Would it be illegal for me to have a Small Business of my own that would charge individuals/small-businesses to Install and Setup Linux desktops. I wasn't sure how that GPL license worked. I figured I would be charging individuals for setting up Linux Desktops on their machines or small business/offices and training/teaching them on the various applications they could install on their own.

Also, would it be illegal to create websites using Apache, Tomcat and other Open Source tools and then sell those sites. I figured many people are turned off by learning or installing something other than Windows desktops on their pcs, just because it is different. If this cannot be done under the GPL license, then could someone tell me how I could go about starting my own small business to legally Setup/Install Linux distributions.

Ubuntu :: Sporadic With The Openoffice.org Program - Can't Open Any Open Office Programs Without Rebooting Computer

Jan 28, 2011

I'm having sporadic issues with the openoffice.org program. Sometimes, power point presentations will crash the program and then I can't open any open office programs without rebooting the computer. The problem seems to be just with powerpoint files and I'm not sure what the issue could be.

Ubuntu :: Can't Open Any Programs Made In C++?

Jan 30, 2010

When i was in Windows, i had absolutely no problem creating and running basic terminal C++ programs. I came to Ubuntu, and now I've got a big problem: I can't run any program that i make. I have tried making programs in Code::Blocks, CodeLight, MonoDevelop, and NetBeans. All 4 four are free IDE's from the ubuntu installer. I've created 4 programs, 1 on each, and they're all the EXACT same program. When i build it, they build just fine and run. When i release and compile it so it becomes an .exe program, i can't open it. I find the thing, double click, and nothing happens. I rightclick and choose Run, and nothing happens. I made a basic Hello World program, and i couldn't even run that. Is there an extra thing im supposed to install to allow me to run .exe or something?

Ubuntu :: X Restarts When Programs Open?

Mar 25, 2011

my X server restarts and boots me to the log screen when I start programs. I recently took the Nvidia card out of my computer and put in an ATI card. This is of course after uninstalling the Nvidia drivers through the restricted drivers interface. This worked out very well but eventually I went back to Nvidia. I removed the ATI drivers put in the Nvidia card and installed/selected the Nvidia drivers just as I did when I did this the other way previously. However now when I start just about any program the entire X server boots me back to the login screen.

Ubuntu :: Can't Open More Than One Programs After Installing To Another Partition?

Jun 23, 2011

So I just downloaded Ubuntu to be put on my other partition(I have a C: and a D: drive) So stupid me had a brain fart and ended up not making a new partition and putting Ubuntu on the D: drive which was 3/4 of my total hard drive. So now I have 120 GB for Windows and 350 GB for Ubuntu. So I went to Gparter on Ubuntu and tried to open it and it had an error before it even opened. And when I first went in to Ubuntu it had like 2 things pop up with errors. So I went back to Windows 7 and tried to use the partitioner there and it wouldn't let me expand my C: drive. What am I supposed to do?

Ubuntu :: Bottom Panel - Showing Open Programs Twice

May 8, 2010

Lucid now has a 'feature' of clogging up the bottom panel, showing open programs twice [normal mode, on the left, compact mode on the right], can this be disabled?

I've attached a screenshot of what I mean, in case I'm not completely clear: see the compact open program thingy's right next to the workspace switcher.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 (64bit) Open Programs Not Appear In Bottom Panel

May 15, 2010

I just freshly installed 10.04 (migrated from 9.10), and the first thing I noticed is that in my bottom panel, the applications crashed ("quit unexpectedly") right after the first boot: the workspace switcher simply disappeared when I tried to change its preferences, and "Show Desktop" crashed without me doing anything (I got the little popup window that allowed me to reload or not). Now, I reloaded them and they're there, but none of my open programs appear in the bottom panel.

Ubuntu :: Showing All Open Programs On Bottom Toolbar?

Aug 20, 2010

Take a look at my picture to understand what I'm talking about. I have a bunch of programs open right now and I can't see the name of the programs on my toolbar. Is there hopefully a way to see all open programs on your toolbar when this happens?

In windows OS's when you have multiple windows from the same program open they group themselves together, and on MAC OS's they have a toolbar that you can easily scroll through.

Ubuntu :: Create Non-open Source Programs To Be Run On A System?

Feb 6, 2011

I know that Linux is open source but there must be ways of creating non-open source programs to be run on a Linux system? Does such a thing exist and/or have a name? Would any source code that has been compiled be unable to be read by anyone properly unless the soruce code was released?

Ubuntu :: Programs (Abiword) Not Staying Open On Launcher?

Jun 16, 2011

I've found that Abiword, which I prefer to Libre Office, when minimised does not remain arrowed on the launcher in 11.04, so it effectively can't be minimised. Can it be made to do this? I've clicked a few icons on the launcher like Brasero's and Synaptic's and found that they still all behave properly but I'm guessing there are other programs that have the Abiword glitch.

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Open Any Programs On X (i3)

Feb 18, 2016

I use gdm3, Debian Jessie (Not sure if 8.2 or 8.3, I did a dist-upgrade so maybe 8.3), and i3-wm.

I went to shower and came back to find my hard drive full due to the syslog and daemon log being filled with 76GB each worth of the same 7-line error message about NetworkManager and wpa_supplicant. (Earlier that day the 80% of my CPU was being consumed by those two, and my battery life fell from 7 hours to 2 hours)

After I shortened those log files to 700 and 1200 lines, and I rebooted and then logged into i3, I found that I couldn't open any graphical programs, except Emacs24, Dwarf Fortress, Minecraft, Minitube, and Wireshark. I also noticed that the log files that I shortened have disappeared, so I cannot recover the 7-line error message.

I haven't tried all the graphical programs that I have, but Terminator, Pidgin, Hamster Time Tracker, Iceweasel, and gnome-terminal will not open (although Emacs24, Dwarf Fortress, Minecraft, Minitube, and Wireshark will, and NetworkManager seems unaffected as well). By "won't open" I mean that when I run the programs from dmenu or any Emacs shell (eshell, shell, ansi-term), the process runs (as visible in ps aux), but it does not show up in i3. Pidgin and Hamster Time Tracker will reserve space in the i3bar, but it doesn't get populated.

I haven't extensively tested what happens in Gnome3, but I have noticed that I can't open the activities overlay.

Debian :: Programs Open With (Blacked Out) Windows?

Aug 10, 2015

Long story short, been using Debian for 2+ years. Recently did a Clean install of Jessie (which worked fine). I wanted to test out Ubuntu 14.04 so I distro hopped for a couple weeks. Now I'm back on Debian Jessie (did a clean install again).

Problem is: Everything works fine, but after the computer runs for a while (like 2+ hours) any new program windows that I open are completely blacked out. Just like opening a big square black tile. They are unusable until I restart the computer, then everything works fine again for another 2+ hours.

I've never had this problem before, not even with my previous clean installation of Jessie. This time I installed it in the same way that I did the last time.

Debian Installation :: 8.3.0 Jessie - Some Programs Don't Open

Feb 27, 2016

I have a new installation of Debian 8.3.0 Jessie which I have been playing with and enjoying for a couple of weeks. Ever since I installed the operating system to my computer, I have noticed a few different programs just won't open. For example Nepomuk Back Up and Nepomuk Cleaner. I do not know if these programs shipped with the original installation or if they got installed with a package later, but when I try to open these applications the ball just bounces for a minute then disappears. I went to my package manager and uninstalled these applications and then reinstalled them, but there has been no change in behavior. Gparted also does the same thing, but with Gparted the little ball bounces for quite awhile before it disappears.

Fedora :: Gnome-panel Not Running - Can't Open Any Programs?

Jan 16, 2011

I was trying to customise my desktop, and I disabled gnome-panel as I don't need it (and auto-hide wasn't working). Now when I boot up I can't open anything as the "run" dialog using alt + q (changed shortcut from alt + f2) doesn't load, nor does the terminal via shortcuts. I'm using Compiz, and disabled nautilus drawing the desktop so Compiz could do it for me.

Do you know what I can do to get this back or to get the "run" dialog to open again? EDIT: Skype ran as start up, so I got a friend to send me a link, which opened my web browser. I then downloaded a file, and viewed it in nautilus which meant I could get to the terminal and run gnome-panel from there. I can now get it back easily when needed. Do you know if there is a way I can get the "run" dialog to work without needing the gnome-panel running?

SUSE / Novell :: Why Do Open Programs Disappear When Minimized In Kde

Dec 2, 2009

Anytime I open a window and then minimize it-poof it's gone! for instance when I minimize firefox or just about any other app it just disappears instead of landing into the panel as it usually does when minimized. Is this a KDE problem? I just tried to upgrade to 11.2/KDE on the net (that was a mistake.) I finally installed from Downloaded DVD (install version) and crawled back from upgrade hell.

OpenSUSE :: Launch Bar Only Show Programs Open On The Current Desktop?

I'm using Opensuse 11.3 with KDE 4.4.4. When using the task switcher, only programs open on the current desktop are visible. I think it would be handy to have the Launch Bar work in the same fashion.

Is it possible to have the Launch Bar only show programs open on the current desktop?
