Ubuntu :: Multiple Unique Desktops?

Sep 30, 2010

hen I was still using hardy heron, I made a few posts trying to figure out if there was a way to really take advantage of the separate workspaces/desks.Has any progress been made in this direction? I want to do more than move firefox windows around. I want to dedicate a workspace to different projects or aspects of my life. I want to have different icons up in each one that relate to the project I'm working on and only that project

General :: Good Support To Multiple Desktops AND Multiple Monitors

Jun 4, 2010

I'm starting to have A LOT of opened windows in my machine. Sometimes within a project, I have e-mail/task management/personal e-mail/twitter, and a lot of different opened applications/terminals in my Linux workstation.Sometimes it would be interesting to have different workspaces to projects instead of this configuration I have nowadays that are classes of work (bad name, I know, but I think you got the idea).I'm starting to think about using two monitors: one with Corporate Management, Work and Personal. The second monitor is only the development state: each workspace here is about a project being worked on instead of groups of works like before. A workspace may be implementing different classes for example.

My question is: I just want to change to a second monitor using the mouse. I want to still be able to change workspaces in the same monitor using keyboard shortcuts. The keyboard shortcuts wouldn't change monitors, just worskpaces on the same monitor. All the tutorials I read (like this one) only tells how to use multiple monitors but doesn't answer my question about keyboard shortcuts.Does Linux (Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx or Debian 5.0.5 Lenny) support this envisioned setup (Different workspaces in a way that keyboard workspace switching only works in the current monitor) ? If so, how?I haven't tested this setup, that's why I'm asking. In this question the user says it works exactly how I want it to behave, can someone else confirm it?

Ubuntu :: Open Multiple Unique PDF Files In One Applicaiton

Jan 14, 2010

I read a lot of PDF documents using the default Document Viewer and I am wondering whether there is an application or a hack to have several PDF files concurrently open in one application (maybe like tabs in a browser?) since switching between one application to a specific PDF always takes time.(Especially with more than 4 PDF files concurrently running.)

Ubuntu :: Multiple Simultaneous Keyboards With Unique Layouts

Aug 25, 2010

As the title says, I'm interested in two (or more) simultaneous keyboards, each with a unique layout. Everything I've researched indicates this should be possible, but I'm unable to get it to work. Regardless of how I set things up, all keyboards consistently operate as if they share the CoreDevice setting in xorg.conf.
In the above config, both keyboards behave as if they're set for the USA layout. Changing the layout in gnome-keyboard-properties affects all of the connected keyboards equally, but has no provision for altering individual devices.

Programming :: Multiple Input Into Seq Command From Pipe - Single Column Unique Numbers

May 13, 2011

Have this script which is reading in a series of files, one at a time with while-do-done loop, each file goes through various greps/awk's where this info is then saved to various files for later use. i.e....

Script is being run on Linux Red Hat,

In one of the grep/awk's the output (currently) are 2 columns (min max), i.e....| awk '{print $1, $2}' | sort -u which outputs (e.g.)

The number of "min max" pairs varies from file to file. Want to output a single column of unique numbers from the min max pairs & get the number of them for input to a file...i.e...

Where <PROCESS> is some process/technique that will generate a single column of integers (increment of 1) to pipe into the next one (sort -u)

i.e. (example from above)

Have tried command seq - only works for single pair input i.e.

Is there any command like seq etc which will output a single column based on a input of min max numbers (increment 1) to pipe onwards to next command?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Mouse Over With Multiple Desktops?

Aug 14, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04, my video card is an ATI Radeon HD3200. When I hook up my tv to my laptop via an HDMI cable, I am having an issue in the multiple desktop configuration. The audio and video work great in both the cloned desktop mode, and the multiple desktop mode (the extended displays cuts my laptop image in half though). However, when I am using multi-desktop, if I mouse over (or drag a window) from display one to display two, I can not bring my mouse back into the first display (it doesn't matter which display is which, tv or laptop)

OpenSUSE :: Can't Configure Taskbars For Multiple Desktops?

Apr 8, 2010

I am hoping I have a simple one to solve here! I've been looking around online, trying to find out how to configure multiple desktops to have their own taskbar.Most of my results suggest that I should be able to click on the menu, choose favorites, and go to Configure Desktop. In the new window, I should see a taskbar section on the left hand side?I am running OpenSUSE 11.2 on two machines and neither of them have this option. I just wanted to see if somebody knows where I can find the window to configure separate taskbars for each desktop?

General :: Ubuntu Distributions - Put Multiple Virtual Desktops In Panel

Oct 22, 2010

I first tried latest version 10.10 desktop. very slow booting in a Centrino CPU laptop not booting at all in a N455 CPU netbook. Tried version 10.04 which seems to work better fast booting in Centrino CPU laptop. fast booting in N455 CPU netbook. From Centrino Laptop with Windows XP on HD, once loaded Ubuntu as persistent live program from a USB drive, tried to install the program on SD memory card in PC slot. Upon request, installation made onto that memory only, not on inside HD, hence formatting only that memory. Upon completion, after removing the external memories and booting again the PC it does not boot of its own any more. XP OS damaged. I have recovered the system with a Toshiba backup CD but the HD has been formatted and all data lost. How can this happen ? I'll never try anymore to permanently install Ubuntu. I'll use it as persistent live on an external memory. I only have an old PC laptop with 128 MB RAM for further installation testing but no Ubuntu release can boot there. By the way, Lubuntu 10.10 look more fast and safe although appears to have more limitations then Ubuntu 10.10.

Debian Configuration :: Multiple Virtual Servers Be Setup In 2 Desktops?

Jun 12, 2010

I now have 2 desktops running debian. I have virtual servers running in desktop 1, and I am hosting my photos using Gallery2. I have copied Gallery2 and the mysql over to desktop 2. I have entered port forward to desktop 1 using port 80 (using my router), and desktop 2 using port 1000. I can only access Gallery2 in desktop1. If I tried to access Gallery2 in desktop 2, I got re-directed to desktop1.


1. Are home routers capable of port forward to more than one computers in a home network behind the firewall of the router? It is Belkin N+ router.

2. Can multiple virtual servers be setup in 2 desktops?

Software :: Put Multiple Virtual Desktops In Panel - Distributions Based In Debian

Jan 21, 2011

According to Distrowatch, the two most downloaded distributions are Mint and Ubuntu. I have put both on my computer. In Mint I can find no way to put multiple virtual desktops in my panel. In Ubuntu 10.10, when I go to synaptic package manager the settings tab with the repositories is dimmed out. I have enabled the sources list in administration but it is a less convenient way to add repositories. Despite what the linux community seems to think, I find that Simply Mepis and Pclinuxos are better for actual use.

Ubuntu :: Turn CapsLock Into A Unique Modifier Key

Aug 23, 2010

I would like to use Caps Lock as its own UNIQUE modifier key (not merely replace it with Ctrl). I have figured out how to do this on windows but not yet in Ubuntu. Here is what I'm looking for:

1. When I press "Caps Lock" on its own, it is equivalent to the Escape key (or at least sends the "escape" command).
2. When I press Caps Lock + <new key>, it does other stuff.

I have figured out how to get EITHER ONE of these to work, but not both at the same time. For example, I have figured out how to turn Caps Lock into the unique "Super" modifier using xbindkeys and xmacro (this achieves #2). I have also figured out how to switch the escape and capslocks keys altogether to achieve #1. But I can't figure out how to get both outcomes at the same time!

Today I was bored and i tried to put a lot panels in my desktop, but when I put the fifth panel it was blocked so that did not respond at all (I could only move the mouse), so I had to stop with the button. When I turn on the PC it does normally, but in the "log in" screen I put the password and it doesn't do nothing, just move the mouse.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unique Identifier For A Music File?

Feb 6, 2010

I am looking to understand what would be the optimal or standard way to create a unique id for music files. Something like md5 sum, but taking into consideration that the music files contain some metadata that can be changed.At the end of the day I would like to create a backup database containing all my ratings for the songs. It should be independent from the filename and location.I have seen the libofa, but there does not seem to be much information about it. It is integrated into some GUI tools including Amarok, but they do not do what I want. PUID from Musicbrainz is explicitly closed source based.

General :: Get Unique Host Id Of Machine C/c++?

Feb 5, 2011

I am looking for c/c++ code (no third party lib dependency) to get the physical address of ethernet card on mother board.Most of them suggests to use the linux commands and process the output. For example "/sbin/ifconfig eth0".The problem with above command is that when you run this on a linux variant which is running using VirtualBox on windows host, it's not returning the correct mac address. In this case the correct mac address is the one set for individual virtual machine."/sbin/ifconfig eth0" works fine when linux variant is installed normally.There is another case when linux variant is installed normally and if you install virtualization apps such as VirtualBox or VmPlayer, they create a virtual adepter for their own use. In that case running "/sbin/ifconfig" returns all the adepters. (physical and virtual)

Ubuntu :: Setup A Unique Icon For Each USB Drive AND Have Their Window Pop Open?

Nov 22, 2010

I have a pencil case I carry with a USB hub and 9 USB sticks in it. I like their unique icons and their root windows to pop up upon insertion. If this is answered elsewhere, I looked several times in several ways on google and these forums.

I tried this:
The autorun.inf file on the USB root written this way:
Action=Start Blue512MB

Then put the BlueFlashIcon.ico icon image in a folder titled BlueFlashIcon In Ubuntu (Mav) I get the new personal icon image for that USB stick appearing on the desktop but the USB root window won't pop open automatically when the stick is inserted. I have to dig to the desktop, find it and click it or go into Places on the menu. If when I put nothing special on the flash, no autorun.inf, no icon image, then the window for the USB pops open upon insertion, which I like, but only get the generic icon that looks the same as all 9 external drives. The labels are unique but icons offer faster recognition over reading labels, when they are needed, much nicer to use~

Ideas? Do I have to use .svg icons or another kind of text file? How do I set up a unique icon for each USB drive AND have the window pop up upon insertion?

Programming :: Symbolic Links Permissions Unique

Feb 20, 2011

Is it possible to change permissions on symbolic links using the c programming language or any other for that matter? Now, I know what you are thinking, so let me provide some background.I know permission are meaningless. I know that typically permissions are set to 777.The project that I am working on does the following. On HPUX systems, a c binary recreates missing links from a stored image of the filesystem, if they are missing. The problem is that the permissions are 700 when the links are restored (should be 777). The c method to restore the symbolic links is "symlink()" which takes as its argument the target and linkname.The client wants 777 on the links. I do not know why the permissions are different. I would like to know if I can change permissions on the link by code, changing the mode?

Is this a bug somewhere in HPUX 10,x and 11.x os or "symlink" c library method, who knows?There are groups of nodes running HPUX, for example groupA, groupB etc.The problems appears in groupA but not in groupB. Seems the nodes are configured differently.While I would love to know if this is a configuration issue, it appears that way to me, there would be little I could do about it. Politics you know, but that's okay, in time someone would listen.
