Ubuntu Installation :: Starting From Scratch - Need To Create New Partition

Jan 13, 2010

I was a Jaunty user and then updated to Karmic. Wireless went from being sporadic in Karmic to non-existent after I tried the wrong fixes. I've changed so many settings and tried so many fixes that I don't know which way is up with the wireless. I'd like to start from scratch. If I install from CD, will it just write over my current ubuntu partition? Will the contents of home stay intact or will everything disappear? Do I have to create a new partition?

Ubuntu :: Create And Install A Keyboard Layout From Scratch?

Jun 18, 2010

I was wondering if anyone could provide resources on creating and installing keyboard layouts from scratch. I am a conlanger(I create languages), and I need to be able to map certain unicode characters to certain keys. I could do this via creating a font, however, It would be easier if I could just switch between layouts which is easier than switching between fonts. Especially, when I am using more than one program at once. I'm sorry because I have never used the Ubuntu forums before and I probably posted this in the wrong forum.

Ubuntu :: Remove The Panel And Start From Scratch But Cannot Find The Menu?

May 5, 2010

I noticed that every time I logged in my network icon always moved to the middle of the top panel. Getting tired of moving it back every time I decided to remove the panel and start from scratch. But I cannot find the me menu or the shutdown/logoff/switch user menu. So I cannot rebuild the panel the way it was. How can I find these items?

Debian Programming :: Using Glib To Create Menu File

May 12, 2015

I am using GTK and C and on my application I have a Drag and drop feature.

Code: Select allicon_view = gtk_icon_view_new_with_model(create_and_fill_model(pALP));
   g_object_unref(pALP->list_store);      /* destroy model automatically with view */
   gtk_icon_view_set_selection_mode(GTK_ICON_VIEW(icon_view), GTK_SELECTION_SINGLE);
   gtk_icon_view_set_reorderable(GTK_ICON_VIEW(icon_view), TRUE);
   gtk_icon_view_set_text_column(GTK_ICON_VIEW(icon_view), COL_DISPLAY_NAME);

[Code] ....

The drag and drop works fine but when I exit the application and enter again, the changes of the drops are not saved, meaning the new location is not saved. I understand that in order to save the location of the drops I need to create a menu file and write some xml, But how do I do this? it there another way?

Networking :: Build A Network From Scratch That Includes File And Printer Sharing, Intranet?

Apr 17, 2010

I want to learn how to build a Linux network from scratch that includes file and printer sharing, intranet. I have an intermediate-level knowledge of Windows networking. Can anyone suggest a book or online tutorial that I can learn from? Now let me be clear: I am finding no shortage of tutorials on the web. However, too many are old or incomplete.

A little extra info: I am a teacher/network admin for a small private school with about 50 student computers (that I wish to become Linux machines in the future) and about 10 staff computers (mostly Windows laptops--I do not expect the staff to convert to Linux as readily), I currently do not have an intranet implemented.

Ubuntu :: How To Create Commands For Menu Editor

Apr 17, 2011

Now and then i want to add a command for installed application that hasn't put an icon in the Main Menu. What is missing, that i do not know how to research, are the mysterious pieces of code following the application name in the Command line of the dialog box for making a new Menu entry, invariably including the % sign and letters for options. If i simply write the name, e.g. mc or aiksaurus (magnificent thesaurus), the new entry doesn't work, although it might work through the terminal or Alt+F2.

Needless to say, i will be VERY grateful. I am otherwise installing applications that cannot be used. I love this community and the vision...the love that will replace money and transform this world.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Edit And Create Video DVD With Menu?

Feb 26, 2011

Does anyone have a solution that actually works for creating video DVDs from beginning to end? My requirements are pretty simple, I would think. I need to take video from an NTSC DVD (which I made from 8mm analog tape), edit it, create a menu, and burn it. It doesn't have to be fancy. It just has to work. The total project is a little over 1 hour of video. I have reasonable computer power for this.

That doesn't seem like such a difficult task, but it actually requires using up to four different mutually incompatible programs, each of which has nearly infinite options, a huge number of intermediate file types, and infinite ways to fail. If there are intermediate files to be written, I need to know EXACTLY what files and formats to use, and what packages must be installed to use those formats. I don't care if the programs are KDE or Gnome (even a command line might work if the procedure is clear-cut).

The task consists of four parts:
* Rip or import an ordinary video from DVD. (This was made by a hardware DVD recorder).
* Edit videos. Create clips, cut, past, move, fade.

OpenSUSE :: Create A Launch Icon In The Menu?

Jun 26, 2011

In these days I was doing some experiments: creating rpms of different programs by compiling directly the source code. Everything went well, every-time I was able to create a rpm and install it correctly, no errors no issues. Unfortunately I was not able to find the way to create in the menu (application tab) any quick launch icon. I was forced always to use the terminal and digit the correspondent command :wxmaxima,gnuplot, etc. I tried to look in the manuals but there wasn't anything useful.

By the way I am using Opensuse 11.3 and KDE 4.4.4.

Slackware :: Install Didn't Automatically Create Menu Entry For Gdm

Sep 25, 2010

I have just installed KDE3.5.10 on S13.1 and have followed all steps required on the site at 'http://slackware.osuosl.org/unsupported/kde-3.5.10-for-slack13.0/' containing the packages, finishing with:


You'll probably need to log out and back in again for the profile scripts to add the KDE3 stuff to your $PATH and $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS. When you log back in, KDE3 should start when you run X. Unlike LXDE, this install didn't automatically create a menu entry for gdm. Everything seems to be right, but I can't get the gdm entries I've tried to work. Could somebody who has also installed 3.5.10 kindly post the correct file contents?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Create Trashing Info File: Read-only File System

So when I click on delete I get another error message:

At this point I can only click on Skip, Skip All, or Cancel.

I have not changed anything on the stick recently so I dont know what is causing the problem.
