General :: Make GNOME Desktop Auto Recognize The NTFS Partition Of The USB Drive

Jan 27, 2010

How to make my GNOME desktop auto recognize the NTFS partition of the USB drive.

On command line I can do the following perfectly:


which results


All files permission on the drive is 777. I can read, I can write, do whatever I want.

But in GNOME Desktop environment, when the USB drive is plugged-in, the partition is auto-mounted with other options:


All files permission on the drive is now 555. I can't write to it anymore. I saw a post earlier having similar mount result, but this one is USB drive though.

So how to configure GDE mount automatically with my intended mount options?

General :: Windows - Text / Log Editor With Auto-refresh Support

Feb 8, 2010

I'm looking for a text editor / log manager of some kind that will automatically refresh a file's contents when it changes.

I have a single target log file (e.g. current.log) that is overwritten under certain circumstances and I'd like to be able to leave it displayed and not constantly have to re-open the file to get updates. Much the same as 'tail --follow=name' does in Linux.

I'm using a Windows desktop but it's a remote file so a Linux app would work just as easily.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: OpenOffice Makes Video Refresh And Gnome Crash?

Jun 30, 2010

Since upgrading to Lucid a few days ago I'm having intermittent problems (90% of the time)with opening OpenOffice files.When I open up a spreadsheet (.ods) in OO, (whether OO was already open or not) my screens go black, then flash on and off for 30 seconds (ish) as if trying to change the refresh rate.Sometimes this results in Gnome crashing and restarting itself. it settles down and is OK. On a few occasions I have had to change terminal and manually restart gdm.

Here's my environment;

Dell Latitude D620
nVidia GeForce Go 7300 (according to hwinfo)
Ubuntu Lucid 32-bit (upgraded from Jaunty)

I've got the recommended "NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current)" hardware driver and the NVIDIA X Server Settings applet, which says my NVIDIA driver version is 195.36.24. I'm running dual screens (1440x900 and 1280x1024) using TwinView. After a flicker, here is what I find in the Xorg.0.log;


(II) Jun 30 12:17:42 NVIDIA(0): Setting mode
(II) Jun 30 12:17:42 NVIDIA(0): "CRT:nvidia-auto-select+1440+0,DFP:nvidia-auto-select+0+124"

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Gnome Display Recognize Same Refresh Rate As NVidia Server?

Jan 4, 2010

Is it possible to have gnome's display settings recognise higher refresh rates than 56hz, as my nvidia is set to 85hz, but gnome display still thinks its 56hz, and I believe this is causing many programs I'm using to refresh at 56hz. Compiz works beautifully after overriding the refresh rate inside it, as it too thought I was using 56hz instead of 85 but many games aswell as CairoDock as jerky, which makes me think it is a refresh issue.

How can I make gnome know I'm using 85hz?

Fedora :: Gnome 3 & Skype - Screen Flickers - Looks Crappy - Takes Ages To Refresh

Jun 8, 2011

I have laptop with Mobility Radeon HD3200 graphics. Gnome 3 works more or less fine until I start Skype. When Skype is running switching between the windows is a pain in the a$$. The screen flickers, looks crappy, takes ages to refresh, etc. Anyone experience similar things? I also noticed that when I start yumex I also get the screen doing the same things as with Skype, but to a much lesser extent and only for a few seconds. Could it be related to the network connection? Running F15 64

Ubuntu :: Gnome Auto Mount Permissions Policykit-1

Aug 6, 2010

why can I not allow remote sessions admin rights? why is there a remote exception thrown when Gnome auto mounts my cdrom? Here is a valid use case for auto mounting on a headless server. Server live in external room, admin pc lives in different part of same building. Server needs new software on CD admin walks to server puts cd in server walks to admin pc installs software. Currently you need to mount manually. not a big deal but could be so much easier if I didn't have to do this.who can a moan to in order to get policykit changed.

P.S. I'm a developer willing to put my time where my mouth is and change this.

Ubuntu :: Create A Dvd That Contains Server Desktop And Alternate Install Opptions - And All Four Main Desktop Environments (gnome - Kde - Xfce - Lxde) And Unity?

Aug 12, 2011

is it would be possible create a Ubuntu dvd that contains the ubuntu server desktop and alternate install opptions, as well as all four main desktop environments (gnome, kde, xfce, lxde) and unity. since much of the data is redundant between each version cd's it would probably all fit on one disk. then all that would be needed is two disks one for 32 bit and another for 64 bit. i really think that this could work.

Debian :: Apt Wants To Auto-remove Most Of Desktop

Oct 16, 2015

Fresh Jessie installation with KDE desktop. Installed from Disk 1 of the dvd images. Can't figure why apt wants to remove this stuff. The only packages I removed from the base installation was iceweasel, and juk. I'd like to autoremove to clean out the amarok stuff but I'm afraid it will take all the rest with it. What do I do about this, and or how do I fix it? Does apt have a setting where if an app isn't used for x amount of time it deems it useless for removal?

Code: Select allCalculating upgrade...

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  amarok-common amarok-utils apper apper-data ark cdparanoia cdrdao clamz dvd+rw-tools easy-rsa genisoimage growisofs gwenview htdig hyphen-en-us
  iputils-arping k3b k3b-data k3b-i18n kamera kate kcalc kdeplasma-addons kdesudo khelpcenter4 kio-audiocd kmix kopete kscreensaver ksnapshot libappstream1

Ubuntu Security :: Remote Desktop Allow Button Auto Click?

Oct 14, 2010

I have a home LAN server with Ubuntu Desktop edition 10.10 and I'm having a problem with remote desktop application. For now I have a monitor on that machine, but in the future it's gonna be only the box, without any periferal devices. When I try to log in via UltraVNC from Windows XP, on Ubuntu server a little window pops up, asking me to allow or refuse this "invader", so I click Allow and I really have full control on that machine. However, when I dont have any devices I wouldnt be able to click this Allow button, but will have to have full control. So, my question is how to autoclick this Allow button? Or when I try to log in the ubuntu machine, it would automatically give me full control?
