Ubuntu :: Get Errors Even When Running Nautilus Under Gksudo?

Sep 12, 2010

On Linux Mint, there is this theme called WildMint, looks somewhat like an older Ubuntu Studio theme. Anyway, I have been trying to find how to get it to work on Ubuntu instead of Mint. It is nowhere to be found on Gnome-Look and I've tried to search everywhere for it. Also, I've tried just copying the folder from /usr/share/themes but I just get errors even when running Nautilus under gksudo.

Ubuntu :: Shortcut To Access Sudo Nautilus (gksudo Nautilus) From The Current Window

Feb 11, 2011

Is it possible to change my current nautilus window to have sudo capabilities,? e.g. to delete locked files. It may be lazy but if it takes a lot of navigation then it would be handy to somehow activate sudo from the open window without the terminal command (gksudo nautilus) which always begins at root.

Ubuntu :: Gksudo Nautilus Changes Background To Default

Jun 24, 2010

gksudo nautilus sets the background to default (Because nautilus is rendering the desktop) I set the gconf key to stop it rendering the desktop, but this only affects the icons. How can I get it to give me back my background? Edit: Fixed the desktop (--no-desktop option on nautilus command) - need to find how to kill the nautilus process automatically when I close it.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Requires Root Permission Even Without Gksudo,sudo,etc

Aug 15, 2010

Every time I try to open Nautilus it requires root permission even if I don't use commands like gksudo.

I launch it from docky's bookmarks applet, requires root.

Use a command like "nautilus /home/harvey" it still requires root.

Adding the file browser launcher to docky doesn't even LAUNCH nautilus.

But launching file browser from gnome-panel works O_O.

But I never use gnome-panel, so I'd like to be able to launch it from docky and commands and stuff without root permission.

Ubuntu :: After Running Nautilus As Root

Oct 18, 2010

In maverick, I made a menu shortcut to be able to run nautilus as root (gksu nautilus), when I need to (for example, to clean the /var/apt/archives or anything like that).When I used this in intrepid, karmic or lucid, this worked fine.In maverick, when I do so, I always afterwards have the gnome desktop of root and still the rights of root outside nautilus. I have to logoff and re-login as my user to see my personal background and gnome environment again.

Ubuntu :: Nautilus Running But Not Opening

Jul 26, 2011

i just turned my computer on a few minutes ago (turned it off due to a storm), and immediately noticed my desktop icons were gone. so i went to places>desktop, and nautilus failed (and continues to fail) to open. i simply see a waiting cursor and a window tab saying "opening Desktop", and nothing happens. i checked system monitor, and nautilus is running, and its not listed as being unresponsive. when running from the terminal, i get no errors or anything, it just doesnt run. i did see that when i turned on my computer, i got a splash screen saying it was checking my discs for errors, but it only took about 15 seconds and didnt find any errors. also, right clicking on my desktop doesnt do anything, either. not sure what happened.

I ran an update recently. It was about a 300Mb download and with it was the current kernel and others. I restarted to find an error.

It said to run "sudo dpkg --configure -a" but when I ran that I got: dpkg: failed to open package info file `/var/lib/dpkg/status' for reading: No such file or directory"

Ubuntu :: Can Running E2fsck On Live System Cause Errors ?

Jun 29, 2011

We have an old server running, and I decided to run fsck.ext3 -n on the disk to check it (while it was running). Turns out it reports lots of errors - not a good thing.

The weird thing is that when booting up a rescue cd and running fsck.ext3 on it, it says there are no problems with it. The filesystem is marked clean. Forcing a check with -f turns up nothing.

Now, when booting it from disk, fsck complains about an unclean file system that has not been checked for like 50000 days (obviously an error). Running e2fsck -n /dev/sda2 turns up errors again - not necessarily the same ones as the last time.

This makes me wonder: Can running e2fsck on a mounted file system cause errors? I ran with -n which is not supposed to do anything, just doing a read-only check. On the other hand, I heard checking a live file system might throw erros since the files being checked might change while bign checked, thus causing false positives.

Can the old version of e2fstools (1.38, approx 2005) mean non-existing errors are shown? Both the rescue cd and the system use this version.

In any case - why would the file system report errors on boot-up when the rescue cd just said it was ok? It should have been marked clean by now.

For laughs, I shut down the system and booted Knoppix which has a quite recent version (1.41.12, May 2010) of e2fstools. It showed no errors on the file system.

What do you think - are there errors or not on the file system?

The system is actually running Suse, but this is not about Suse specific things - just general Linux tools. And I use Ubuntu personally.

Ubuntu :: Running In Low-graphics Mode After Checking Drive For Errors

Oct 12, 2010

I have been running 10.4 with no problems for some time now. Today when I booted up it started checking the drive for errors, and I just left it to do its thing. I came back to this warning screen: Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode.Your screen, graphics card, and input device settings could not be detected correctly.
I've tried all of these with no luck. When I select to run to low graphics mode, it says "Stand by one minute while the display restarts...OK".I select OK and then it gets stuck checking for battery state.I try to reconfigure the graphics, and nothing happens when I select any of the options on the next screen.

General :: Libtool Has Syntax Errors When Running After GLib-2 Cross Compile For PPC Using LTIB?

Jun 10, 2010

First, I'm trying to cross compile mono 2.6.4 so that it will run on Freescale Embedded Linux for a PowerPC CPU. My host machine is running Fedora 13 on an x86. Freescale provides a copy of the Linux Target Image Builder (LTIB) that has been pre-configured for the particular board I'm using, and LTIB seems to be able to help with the cross compilation of other stuff--you can add in your own packages to be built and included in your newly-built Linux image.

Mono depends on pkg-config and glib-2, so I have selected them in the LTIB package selection config. I've also added a new package for mono that builds mono-2.6.4 from the source tar (after the other deps have also been built).

I'm having a problem getting the glib-2.24.0 package libraries created. Basically they appear to build and link ok, but then libtool runs and errors out claiming it has a syntax error! (numerous wths followed...)

Here is LTIB's temporary build script for only the glib2 package:


Here is the output when building the glib2 package (configure + make):


Build path taken because: directory build, build key set, no prebuilt rpm,

Ubuntu :: Need Gksudo To Open Transmission

May 23, 2010

When I try to open Transmission I get a message: "Couldn't open "/home/shai/.config/transmission/lock": Permission denied", and the only way to open it is by using gksudo.

I read on another thread that I need to delete that file, but the file doesn't exist.

What should I do?

Ubuntu :: Gksudo And Gksu Stop Working?

Jan 20, 2010

I am running a file server on Jaunty. It was a fresh install about a month ago and I have been having problems ever since. I connect external drives to the machine to do nightly backups. Lately, I have been using GParted (Gnome Partition Editor) to format the drives before using them as backups, as I keep a backup for every day of the week.

After using GParted a couple of times, it will stop working and I can't open it or any other application that needs root privileges. I can't use Gnome to mount drives anymore. I have to open Terminal and use the mount command to mount drives. Trying to start gparted or any other application, including nautilus from the Terminal using gksudo or gksu, I get the following error message:

gksudo nautilus
(nautilus:25353): nautilus-extension-gnome-mount-WARNING **: Cannot connect to system bus: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.LimitsExceeded : The maximum number of active connections for UID 0 has been reached
(nautilus:25353): nautilus-extension-gnome-mount-WARNING **: Could not initialize hal context


Once the machine is rebooted, everything works fine until I run a few more privileged applications, then the applications stop working again and this whole process starts all over. The only way to fix the problem so far is to reboot the machine, which is completely unacceptable.

Ubuntu :: Gksudo Forgets The Password Immediately?

Apr 29, 2011

This occurred sometime in the past couple of days, perhaps because of an update that I just blindly accepted or due to some tinkering of my own. But for some reason, my gksudo never remembers the password I put in there anymore. When I sudo in a terminal it remembers no problem, and my sudo-via-terminal also responds to the "timestamp_timeout=x" variable in /etc/sudoers as it should. But does gksudo have it's own "/etc/sudoers" file where you can override the caching period for the password or does it reference the regular /etc/sudoers also?

Ubuntu :: Gksudo/gksu Silently Refuses To Do Anything

Jun 2, 2011

This comes at some point after installing GNS3 and Dynamips, which require administrator access as GUI's. Although, the first couple times I tried to run GNS3 as administrator, it worked fine. I do still receive the password prompt, whether running from the command line or the context menu. Note that GNS3 is the first application for which I've needed to run gksudo, so this may have been an issue before the above were installed, although I've always been able to run "Open as Administrator" in Nautilus and "Synaptic Package Manager," which now will not run either.

Ubuntu :: Change Gksu To Gksudo In Lxshortcut (for Synaptic Package Manager)

Nov 7, 2010

I installed lubuntu 10.10 from a minimal netinstall. For some reason, the main menu entry for synaptic package manager uses gksu instead of gksudo at the beginning of the command, as revealed by right-clicking the entry, then clicking "properties". This, of course, precludes the ability to access the program unless you're among the few who have activated the root user account. That's a problem in and of itself, but it's been recognized elsewhere. However, after I fixed the command and clicked "ok", nothing changed. I opened up the little properties menu again and it was gksu, as though I hadn't fixed the command.

The properties window is a mysterious little program called lxshortcut. I suspect that if I run lxshortcut using sudo, then the changes I make will actually stick. Problem is, I don't know how to find the actual location of the main menu's SPM shortcut/launcher-thingy. Nor are there any clear instructions on how to use lxshortcut in terminal. I flailed about with my best interpretation of vague instructions, but to no avail.

I downloaded alacarte (which is, of course, intended for gnome), and I got the software sources entry to show up in the list, but nothing else in the program responded when I clicked. The whole experience in alacarte was weird and unhelpful and somehow I've outright removed the menu entry for synaptic. And that's fine, I barely use it anyway, but Software Sources also has the same gksu problem, and I actually use that one. So how do I change the command associated with one of the preferences in the lxde/lubuntu main menu?
