Ubuntu :: Video Obscuring Drop Down Menu?

Sep 18, 2010

On any video I play, the picture is on top of the drop down menus for the player so they can't be seen- they drop down and work and can see the parts that are to the sides of the video picture. This happens on every video player I have tried -Movie player GNOME MPlayer, VLC. The image that shows the problem had to be taken with a camera as using the screen capture looked as though the video picture wasn't even there (image also attached)

Mar 26, 2011

I'm currently tweaking ubuntu to my liking. I got rid of the "menu bar" and replaced it with the "Main Menu". I don't like the black arrow on the Main Menu so I followed the instructions to get rid of it posted hereI got to the part where I type "sudo make" However, I get the exact error posted hereI tried to follow the solution, I installed libpanel-applet2-dev using synaptic. I tried to edit the "Makefile" in the directory /var/cache/apt-build/build/gnome-panel-2.30.2. However, when I opened this make file I did not find any line calledpanel-compatibility.$(OBJEXT) panel.$(OBJEXT) applet.$(OBJEXT)

Fedora :: Firefox Drop Down Menu In Gnome 3?

Sep 8, 2011

When I right-click on firefox, the menu that appears is sometimes quite long depending on where on the screen I click, and usually the top option dissappears under that top Panel of Gnome shell, so that I have to guess and click on the panel to get an "Open in New Tab" (which is usually my first option.) Is there a way to make it remain within the visible area or something? I'm on Fedora 15 64-bit.

Ubuntu Networking :: Ndiswrapper-dkms Won't Open From Drop-down Menu?

Mar 8, 2011

I have (had?) ndiswrapper-dkms installed, and used it to get a wireless card working. After a kernel update, the card stopped working, and I tried to re-install it. Part of the directions included doing -r to about everything connected to the original install.

Programming :: SED - Keeping Start Of Line, But Drop The End?

May 3, 2010

I have a script that writes the following type lines to a file. The lines include some html tags. Here is an example:<p>Total = 5</h2></b></center>I want to keep the <p> tag, but remove the ending 3 tags. Sometimes the line can have a 1, 2, or perhaps a 3 digit Total. So I could have a Total = 125.Anyway, after the removal of the ending tags the result would be:<p>Total = 5There are some lines in the file that end with </h2></b></center> that I want to keep. These lines looks generally like this:

<p><b><center><h2>Events Summary for Sun May 02 2010</h2></center></b>

As you can see I am using sed to change the beginning and end of lines to make a very simple web page.The file actually displays ok in a browser with the extra tags on the end, but it is just sloppy work to have these unneeded tags in the output file.

Networking :: Large File Transfers Start Fas Then Drop To A Crawl?

Jul 19, 2010

I need to transfer 330G of data from a hard drive in my workstation to my NAS device. The entire network is gigabit and being run with new HP procurve switches. All machines have static IP addresses. The NAS is a Buffalo Terastation PRO which has the latest firmware, is set to jumbo frames, and has just been upgraded with 4 brand new 500G drives giving us a 1.4TB raid 5 setup. My workstation is a dual Quad core xeon box running on an Intel S5000XVN board with 8G of ram. My OS is Ubuntu 10.04 x64 running on a pair of Intel X25 SSDs in a raid mirror. The data drive is a 500G SATA drive connected to my onboard controller. The file system on the SATA drive is XFS. This problem was ongoing before I got my new workstation, before we had the GB switches, and before the NAS got new drives. When I transfer a small file or folder (less than 500M) it reaches speeds of 10-11 MB/sec. When I transfer a file or folder larger than that the speed slows to a crawl (less than 2MB/sec). It has always been this way with this NAS. Changing to jumbo frames speeds up the small transfers but makes little difference in the big ones. I verified with HP that the switches are jumbo frame capable.
