Ubuntu :: Clicking On System & Trash From Launcher Open Movie Player?

Jun 13, 2011

if i click on System or Trash, from the unity launcher, it open movie player. only the player and not either of those places. when clicking Trash, the player opens and starts playing "4 non-blonds", which was probably the last thing sent to the trash. clicking System just opens the movie player not playing anything specific. why is this happening? why cant we access those places. I'm not even sure how to revert. would like not to have to.

Ubuntu :: 10.04: "Movie Player" Won't Open A Video CD I Made?

Feb 2, 2011

I used Brasero to make a video CD (VCD) for my friend who wanted a disk of some vids I'd shot of his recently-deceased dog. When I select the CD, Ubuntu asks if I want to start "Movie Player". I click yes, totem starts... then I get the message:

An error occurred. Could not open location; you might not have permission to open the file I've looked at my permissions, under System > Administration > Users and Groups and I can't see where I'm missing a relevant permission. What am I doing wrong?

EDIT: What is up with me today???? It's meant to be 10.04, 10.04, not 8.04.

RE-EDIT: Please disregard the above EDIT - some kind mod/admin edited the thread title for me. (I guess it's pretty daft of me to ask you all to disregard an EDIT that you've already read. But I've done it anyway. So disregard, disregard, disregard... you are feeling sleepy..

Ubuntu :: Right Mouse Click Freeze / When Right Mouse Button To Open Options Menu It Freezes And Does Not Open Menu?

Oct 14, 2010

just want to report "Right Mouse Click Freeze" on Ubuntu 10.10. When I click on anything with my right mouse button to open options menu it freezes and does not open menu. Sometimes when I shake my mouse left/right a bit it opens that menu, but this does not work always. It seems like xserver issue, but I'm not sure since I'm not expert in linux yet. It's very annoying issue that I would like to resolve asap.

My System Specs:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Western Digital 250 GB Hard Drive
Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit (Kernel Linux 2.6.35-22)
(Used Desktop Install CD)

Ubuntu :: Right Click Open As Administrator Does Not Work

Jan 28, 2011

Strange. After a recent update, I can no longer right click on a folder and open it as Administrator. I get this error message:

Unable to determine the program to run.

The item you selected cannot be open with administrator powers because the correct application cannot be determined.

I don't quite get this but why is it looking for a program to run? I only want to open a folder, not run a program. Anyway, I have done an uninstall and re-install of nautilus-gksu but that did not solve the problem. I have googled but no answers I could use.

Again, all I want to do is open a folder as Administrator so I can perform other operations that require root permission on files in that folder.

using: 10.04 LTS fully updated

General :: How Do I Add Right Click Open With WINE

Jan 10, 2010

1. In windows, you can create batch files. I know Shell files are the equivalent of that in linux, but how do i create one?I tried creating a text document, typing echo Test, and saving it as .shell but it came up with a empty terminal.

2.How do i add the Right Click> Open With WINE, like there was in Ubuntu. I currently have to go through terminal and type Wine ProgramName, which i am fine with, but I want shortcuts (reason for asking about batches)

3. Finally, how do i add programs to the KDE Menu? I made a custom menu, but when i try and send a program to it, it works unless its a windows executable, which what i'm using is, how can i still add it?
The Program is Brutus AE2, and i want to add it the KDE with the command "Wine" so when you click it it launches a terminal, enters Wine BrutusA2.exe and runs?

4. Also, my search wont work. dunno

Fedora :: Thunderbird 3.0.4 Won't Open Browser On URL Click

Dec 21, 2009

Just in the past few days, after I installed a recent spate of updates, my Thunderbird stopped opening up URLs from within an email into a browser window.I'm using F12 and just updated to the latest Thunderbird 3.0.4 on the 9th. But things didn't get weird just then. Perhaps it was the update to Firefox on the 16th when I got 3.5.6 that did it. Firefox still opens up a window from my RSS feed reader (Liferea) just fine but Thunderbird can't open diddly unless I manually copy the link location and paste it into the browser window.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Panel Icon - One Click To Open?

Jun 15, 2010

I used to be able to open the Rhythmbox window by just clicking the Rhythmbox icon in the notification area. Now in Lucid it brings up a menu (isn't that what right click is for??) and I have to select "Show Rhythmbox", and sometimes I accidentally click on "Quit" and I have to start Rhythmbox again. It's a real PITA. Is there any way to make it the way it was before? I've looked at the Rhythmbox options and can't find anything about it. (Why do GNOME applications always have barely any options?)

Ubuntu :: Allow To Single Click To Open A Folder/launch A Program?

Mar 5, 2011

I've looked, but no luck. Coming from Debian, 5.02, is there a setting in Ubuntu 10.10 that will allow me to single click to open a folder/launch a program. I don't mean the one i am using now that is set up with the mouse setting where it seems to be an assistive technologies application where there is a slider to set the dwell time (when i use this one, i get a menu opening at the same time as the application launch), but the one where the pointer turns to a little hand when it moves over the icon, and opens/launches the program when the button is released.

Ubuntu :: Default Open With - Add Registry To The Gnome Right Click Menu

May 16, 2011

so in Windows I remember I could add to the registry under the * folder in classes_root under Shell, I could add any command I wanted. That way no matter what file I right clicked on I could have EDIT or OPEN with that file.

Is there a way to add this to the gnome right click menu? A default always there for all filetypes? I have UltraEdit Linux installed and want to have the same functionality I had when I used to use windows.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Banshee Will Not Open When Click Its Icon In The Launcher

Sep 1, 2011

Banshee will not run when I click its icon in the launcher. The little arrow appears next to it, and then nothing happens. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04. I ran it in the terminal and got this (x's inserted for username):

[Info 06:10:11.264] Running Banshee 2.0.0: [Ubuntu 11.04 (linux-gnu, x86_64) @ 2011-06-28 05:39:10 UTC]
[Info 06:10:12.004] Updating web proxy from GConf
[Info 06:10:12.034] All services are started 0.637278


Another piece of information that may be relevant: this started happening immediately after I installed a GStreamer plugin, specifically the one for aac, xvid, mpeg2, and faad. I've since uninstalled this package, but Banshee still will not load.

Ubuntu :: Weird Keyboard In Firefox - Open New Tab When Ctrl+click A Link

Feb 4, 2010

I have this little problem with my keyboard. When in Firefox, I have to ctrl+click a link about three times before there is any reaction and a new tab is opened with that link. There is not much chance that there is some physical impediment in the keyboard because all of my other keyboard shortcuts involving ctrl work fine, and I have disassembled and cleaned the keyboard on my netbook (eeepc 1008ha).
