Apr 20, 2010

First problem:

apt-get --purge remove ubuntu-desktop
Reading package lists...
Building dependency tree...
Reading state information...
Package ubuntu-desktop is not installed, so not removed

I have installed Ubuntu desktop on Ubuntu Server to get Boinc manager running. Now I want to remove Ubuntu-desktop.

Second Problem: /etc/init.d/xorg start : No such file or directory When the server boots i get a blinking cursor.

General :: Window Manager - Running As A Desktop With KDE/Gnome But Without 'X Server'?

Oct 14, 2010

I'm curious, I believe that one of the ways that OSX make the GUI experience of *nix more 'snappy' was to ditch X and run the window manager more directly on the hardware.

If I'm looking to run Linux on a desktop, and have no interest in sending Windows to other machines on the network, can I run KDE or Gnome with no 'X' to eliminate that ever-so-slight lag with the window manager experience.

I guess basically what I'm asking is is there an equivalent of quartz for Linux?

Ubuntu :: Remove Apache2 From Desktop System As If Never Installed?

Aug 4, 2010

I have apache2 on my system, and it stopped working since the router was messed with (not by me). I removed apache2 and deleted /etc/apache2, but if I install apache2 it doesn't bring the files back. How do I fix everything that I messed up so it's as if apache was never installed so I can install it again?

Ubuntu :: Possible To Instead Of Using Desktop Folder Plasmoid / Usual Desktop Act As File Manager?

Nov 12, 2010

1. Is it possible to instead of using the Desktop Folder plasmoid, have a usual Desktop act as a file manager?
2. What is Akondi? There are tons of processes which have Akonadi in their name, and it seems to be using up lots of memory.Can I disable these somehow, or is it safe to do so?
3. Any general tips on how to reduce the amount ram that is used on startup? I am using somewhere around 750MB on startup, which is about double the amount Gnome uses. After a few hours of use, Xorg uses close to 1GB of memory.
4. Whenever I get a notification, they don't delete themselves, so when I click on the (i), I see tons of notifications. Is there a way to get them to delete themselves after they have been shown?

General :: Remove The Plasma Desktop In SuSE 11.1 And Restore The Original Desktop?

Oct 1, 2009

Is there a way in SuSE 11.1 to have the conventional desktop, instead the plasma desktop? I thought that installing KDE 3.5 will fix it, but I was wrong. I really don't want to download back SuSE 11.0, just to have my old desktop layout. SuSE developers should at least leave it as an option than to force people to install it

Server :: Installed Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop With No GUI

Jun 10, 2010

I'm a pretty much a linux newbie with some spare compy parts so I've decided to make a server to further my experience in the linux world. I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop (was easier than Server edition with no GUI). What I want is a file server to share movies / music with my friends at school, that we could remotely access from school. I would like to leave this server at home.

I have read a lot on the net but I have not found someone with the same situation as me so have not got far. This would probably involve a single user login which I would give all so it would be strictly read-only, while only 1 user (me) would have admin capabilities. Is this even possible? I would be willing to try Ubuntu 10.04 server if anyone thinks it would be easier.

Debian Installation :: Remove Accidentally Installed "Desktop Environment"?

May 30, 2010

I recently started an installation of Debian Lenny. During the install, I accidentally chose to install "Desktop environment" when I meant to de-select it (I hit enter, which was obviously the wrong key to de-select) so what should I do now? Should I restart the install, and be more careful the next time the task selector comes up? Should I let it continue, and uninstall all the X stuff afterwards (and how would I remove ALL of the stuff installed with the "Desktop environment", 10GB hard drive

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Access Work Remote Desktop Via The Terminal Server Client On Wired Box Running 10.10?

Dec 3, 2010

I am at a loss. I can not access my work remote desktop via the terminal server client on my wired box running Ubuntu 10.10. My wireless laptop is able to connect right away once I established the VPN connection. The VPN connection is established on both boxes with no problems.

When I tried the Terminal Server Client on my wired boxed, it says it can not establish a connection. Yet my wireless box gets connected immediately!

I check the /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf and the /etc/resolv.conf to see if there were any differences, but they are essentially the same. When I have the vpnc connection, they both recognize it and I am able to ping the IP address shown when I do a "ifconfig" on the terminal.

What can be the problem? Anything I need to configure on a wired computer versus a wireless one? What else can I check?

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.

Ubuntu :: How To Remove New Desktop Launcher

Jul 7, 2011

yesterday I installed 11.04 and it looked normal as I expected in 10.10 but when I enabled nVidia drivers, it changed to the new Unity style launcher on the left side and in all honesty it is completely ridiculous and un-productive. How can I change it back w/o disabling the 3rd party graphic drivers?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To 10.04 Wants To Remove Desktop?

When I try to upgrade to 10.04 (from 9.10) I receive the following message:
An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade: The package 'ubuntu-desktop' is marked for removal but it is in the removal blacklist.

I could not bear once again going through the months of torment, searching forums and tearing of hair involved in getting 9.10 to install and get everything working the way I wanted if I had to do a clean install again. Mostly because I can't remember how I got round most of the issues... code...

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Not Updating When Remove Desktop Viewed Via VNC?

May 17, 2010

using the System->Preferences->Remote Desktop i have setup a fresh ubuntu install to share its screen.

from my OSX 10.6 machine, i have tried connecting via Chicken of the VNC and Jolly's Fast VNC Client, both will successfully connect and show the full screen on access, but fail to update the screen after this.

the only way to update it is to disconnect my VNC session and reconnect again.

the Ubuntu desktop is being VERY responsive to mouse gestures over VNC, so this seems to be a one way issue.
