Ubuntu :: Wine Not Opening Programs?

Aug 12, 2010

was a regular windows user for ~10 years now, but my current pc wasnt installing windows for some reason so i switched to linux to try it out. I've been trying to run a few small games here and there to keep me entertained, and wine just isnt agreeing with me ... Any program i try to open with wine, it says "opening _____________" in the taskbar, and then NOTHING HAPPENS! This is really irritating me, becuase if i got an error message i could try to figure out whats wrong, but when NOTHING AT ALL happens

Ubuntu :: Is It Possible To Write Script For Opening Multiple Programs?

Jan 27, 2010

I'm wondering if it's possible to write some sort of script so I can have an icon on the desktop which opens a combination of programs I use together frequently.Specifically, I would like to have an icon called "keyboard practice" which does the following:

1) Open QJackCtrl and "click" on Start;
2) Open the Hexter softsynth and make the Jack connections between it and my speakers;
3) Make the Jack MIDI connection between my MIDI keyboard and Hexter.

Ubuntu Security :: Opening Privileged Programs From User Desktop?

Apr 13, 2010

How do you open a program, in this instance "Zenmap", from the desktop in a user account when it requires root privileges? Is there a way to be prompted for the password, the same way, for instance, you're prompted when mounting a new file system or making a change to the system? I tried entering 'sudo /usr/bin/zenmap' when creating the shortcut, however that didn't work.

Ubuntu :: Opening Many Programs And Placing Them In Specific Monitors / Workspaces?

Jun 16, 2011

I am fairly new to Ubuntu and was wondering if anybody knows of a way to open up a number of programs and placing them in specific spots programmatically. Basically, I'm trying to avoid having to open my IDE, multiple terminal windows, browsers, etc... and then having to place them all in the exact position I want when my machine boots up. Ideally, I could say:Program A, is placed on Monitor 1, workspace 1, at position 0, 0, with height and width 600 x 400. Program B, is placed on Monitor 2, workspace 2, at position 600, 500, with height and width 1000 x 600

OpenSUSE :: Wine Not Opening Some Windows Programs?

Jun 17, 2011

Some windows programs won't run after I have installed them with Wine. They either won't run or they make the screen go to a black painting screen (screen goes black and you can paint over it with your mouse to make the desktop reappear). I have tried changing the windows version and made no difference. I have even tried opening it in a virtual window and made no difference (Window opens then closes)

Ubuntu :: Opening File Manager Endlessly Creating In Programs Bar. Can't Stop It?

Mar 8, 2010

When I turn on my computer I am greeted by an unending stream of "Starting File Managers" appearing in the programs list. This cannot be stopped, though none of the file managers actually open. They just sit there filling up my programs bar and wasting my cpu slowing down computer. It also means I cant upon my own folders, or see what programs I have open.If I run terminal, type xkill and click on one of the buttons in the programs list, that kills them all, and I can see my programs again for a bit, until it fills up again. The panel disappears and appears again, with all the spawning messages gone and any other programs I have open remain there. Its just the randomly spawned "Starting File Managers" that don't come back.

My CPU fluctuates. Its around 60% to 90% load, when it should be idle, but is instead opening all these windows.When I view the processes the most CPU intensive (when I sort) is Gnome System Monitor at 6% and then Gnome panel at 5%,gconfd-2 is as around 2%, compiz.real, dbus-deamon hover around 1%. And everything else is generally at 0%.So somewhere, a hidden process is using about 70% of my CPU load. Which isn't shown in system-monitor. Maybe because its an admin process and I can only see simple user processes. I dunno.There is something else though. I have a process with no name appearing, its blank. And it keeps disappearing and re-appearing. So you can hardly select it hard enough to kill it. I managed to kill it once and it said error, process (large number, 10,000 or 100,000) does not exist. So can't be killed.When I do an xkill the console writes:

anthony@Anthony-Acer:~$ xkill
Select the window whose client you wish to kill with button 1....

Software :: Text Based Screen Cast - Ability To Copy And Paste Text From Screen Cast?

Jan 3, 2011

I'm looking for software which will allow me to record a screen-cast of a terminal based application, recording keystrokes, timing of keystrokes, and audio. I see a couple of advantages to this approach over video capture: Display independence: the viewer can display text in any resolution/style they want, not limited to the resolution of the recorded video. Ability to copy and paste text from the screencast.

Ubuntu :: Remove Warning When Opening Text Files?

Jun 20, 2010

I really hate this warning when I try to open certain types of files in gedit: (using ubuntu lucid)


Do you want to run File.c or display its contents?

"File.c" is an executable text file.

Open in Terminal; Display; Cancel; Run

Is there any way to remove the warning? I have never once clicked anything other than display, and when I'm opening lots of files, having to hold down ALT-D to get rid of these warnings.

General :: Opening Text File After Doing /dev/null

Dec 8, 2010

I ran a program that writes continuously from 1 every line. After some time I ran '/dev/null > temp' Problem1: bash: /dev/null: Permission denied (Yes, the permissions of /dev/null are correct ... crw-rw-rw-. I removed and created it again, but no change) I used 'cat temp' to see the contents and first few lines deleted (working correctly). Problem2: I can't open the file (with double click or with any graphical editor like gedit)

Apart from these problems, I have another question... Is there a way to trim a active log file to say 80% without affecting any logs that server might be writing.

Ubuntu :: How To Disable Some Default Startup Programs

I recently made the switch from gnome to kde. After struggling for two straight days I finally have everything the way I want, and I must say that I am quite pleased with Kde. The one thing I want to do now is get my computer to start up without running printer applets and bluetooth and all that other stuff I don't need. I have had little luck finding any info on this one.

Ubuntu :: Text Unreadable In Some Programs?

Feb 3, 2010

I've recently installed the program Sparky for processing NMR data. When I start the program the text is unreadable. For example the top left pull-down should be labeled 'File' and instead I only see the two horizontal dashes in the 'F' and the right 2/3 of the 'e'. Yet the banners above the windows are completely normal. I have occasionally had similar problems with Matlab, but it's intermitant and less severe
