Ubuntu :: Way To Shorten Display-time Or Move Notification Dialog Box?

Feb 18, 2011

Notifications that popup in Ubuntu (e.g., for downloading items in firefox or Network configuration stuff) display a rectangular black box in the upper right corner of my Desktop. It often covers up items I need to access like logout items or links to my Account etc in a webpage I'm in. I often find myself having to wait for the Ubuntu dialog box to disappear before I can access whatever it is covering up.Is there a way to make these dialog boxes appear in the LOWER right corner instead? Also is there a way to shorten the amount of time that these notifications display before disappearing?

Ubuntu Installation :: What Is Making Long Black Screen Or How To Reduce Time

Jun 11, 2010

I keep hearing about how Ubuntu is supposed to be so much faster than Windows 7, but have yet to see any major difference in their boot times. I am dual-booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04 on an intel Centrino 2 processor with 4Gb of ram and both OS's take about the same time to boot. After I get to the bootmanager to select OS, if I click on Windows 7 it almost immediately goes to the GUI load screen with the windows logo. On the other hand, if I boot into Ubuntu I get a black screen for ~30 seconds before the Ubuntu logo even appears. Comparing GUI boot times, Ubuntu is clearly the winner, but they take the same time total.

Does anyone know what is making the long black screen or how to reduce the time? I would really like to show people how fast Ubuntu really boots.Immediatly before Ubuntu Gui starts, an message shows up for a second saying something like "Unknown adaptor version (2): You may experience some problems", it flies past so quickly that may not be verbatim.

Fedora :: Way To Reduce Running Time / Memory Requirement Of Update Process?

Aug 14, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire netbook with 1GB RAM and 1.6 GHz dual-core 32-bit x86 chips. The KPackageKit / yum / rpm chain is running too slow for me. In addition to the time required to download any new packages or updates, it seems to require at least one full minute of processing time to install each package, update, or bug fix, no matter how small. Another full minute is consumed for each package in "cleaning up."Running yum from the command line takes nearly the same amount of time.During this time, I cannot run any other applications without severe thrashing. It seems that a full gigabyte of memory is in use with some 100M swapped out to disk.

Is there any way to reduce the running time and memory requirement of the update process?While not updating or installing software, I do not normally run out of memory (i.e. begin thrashing) until I have about a dozen browser tabs open, or the like.

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.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.2 Display Needs To Move To The Left?

Jan 11, 2010

Need to shift display 3.4cm to 4cm to the left.

I have four computers hooked up via a KVM. On all of them except the computer in question the video is displayed properly. They all are Nvidia cards. I ran SaX2 but it doesn't have any way of tweaking the video over that I can see. I haven't installed the nvidia package yet but it doesn't have it either. Hitting the auto adjustment on the monitor every time I select this machine on the KVM isn't the answer. How do I get to the old video adjustment screen?

Ubuntu :: Copy And Move Files Over Two Systems All The Time?

May 14, 2010

I have to copy and move files over two systems all the time. So when I am on system 1, I simply use the command

$scp * system2:/some_directory

There are many files in PWD of system1 with different extensions. Of all the files in the PWD on system1, I don't need a file called *residual.dat as it it particularly big and wastes a lot of time copying.How can I make a shortcut so that every time I do scp, it copies everything but the *residual.dat file?

Ubuntu :: GRUB Takes More Time To Display?

May 26, 2010

I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my PC ie AMD Athlon x64 with 15 GB for (root) partition and 2 gb for Swap Space,with 1.2 GB of RAM,but after the successful installation its not displaying the GRUB immediately, taking 90-270 seconds to display? What might be the reason.? I have windows XP on my pc,even for booting into Win XP, one needs the GRUB display, its taking almost 90-180 Seconds to display the GRUB(sometimes more than that). But this thing never used to happen in previous versions of Ubuntu? Why only for this specific Ubuntu 9.10?

Ubuntu :: Date And Time / Calendar Window Out Of Display

Nov 16, 2010

I'm using ubuntu Maverick on a Dell 1545 and I'm pretty much a newbie to ubuntu. Most of the things have been fine so far, I just plugged it into a proxyless internet connection and adjusted my location for time zone (I've been using a porxy server previously for internet which didn't allow changes in location and time zone work) and since then that calendar has moved out of the scope on the top right corner of my screen and I'm unable to move it.

CentOS 5 :: Time Display Is 12 Hours Out?

Apr 11, 2009

I have the bar at the top configured to display the time but it is displaying 12 hours out.For example, it's now 16:49 but the time is displaying as 06:49. If I click on Adjust Date & Time it has the correct time in there and it is configured to display 24-hour format and is in the correct time zone. If I switch to 12-hour format it displays 6:49 AM which is clearly incorrect.I can't fix it because it thinks the time is correct when I try to change it.

Ubuntu :: Karmic - Date/Time Display On Top Of Screen Panel

Feb 12, 2010

I have just updated to karmic. For some odd reason, the time/date indicator on the top panel now spreads the data over two lines, rather than placing them side by side. There doesn't seem to be any option in the preferences program to control this.

This means that the panel cannot be reduced below a two line minimum. Not only have I lost desktop space, but the panel icons have expanded to suit the new thicker panel.

Software :: Display CURRENT Time In Prompt?

Jan 18, 2009

After much too often wondering "hey, when did I actually start this time-consuming command?", I'm considering adding a timestamp to my bash prompt.My first try was simple: PS1="(A) $PS1" which gives a display like:(16:58) exscape ~ #

However, the problem with that approach is that it displays the time when the line was written, not when the command on it was executed. So, if I run "ls" at 16:58, and get a new prompt "(16:58) ..." and then run the next command 2 hours later, it'll look like this:(16:58) exscape ~ # new-commandI of course want the line to display the time when the command was actually run, not when the prompt appeared.
