I'm a beginner to Ubuntu so this is probably an easy question, but: I installed a windows application using Wine and that worked, it launched the application just fine.

General :: Get Firefox 3.6.12 To Start Up With Xandros Desktop Icon Rather Than 3.0.1?

Dec 4, 2010

I've used this approach to install Firefox 3.0.1 on my stock EEE PC, which has worked very well. I've since downloaded and installed version 3.6.12 for Linux, and I can start it up through the terminal with the command ~/firefox/firefox However, I can't start up 3.6.12 using the desktop icon; instead, it reverts back to version 3.0.1.

Ubuntu :: Dragging Firefox Url Icon Fails To Create Desktop/shortcut File

Aug 16, 2011

I'm trying to create a web shortcut (desktop file) by dragging the icon from the Firefox address bar to a Thunar folder or desktop. This worked with older versions of Thunar and Firefox, but now that I'm running Xubuntu Natty (Firefox 5 and Thunar 1.2.1) it fails. Depending on the web site I try, it either creates a file containing the page's html instead of creating a .desktop shortcut file, or fails to create any file at all.

I updated to 11.3 and my Firefox became ugly. It now looks like this: [URL]

It used to look something like this with 11.2: [URL]

Firefox still uses KDE file dialogs etc. so at least some of the Kde integration still works. How can make firefox look like it belongs to Kde desktop. I already tried reinstalling firefox and also removing .mozilla folder.

General :: Make A Permanent Install Of Puppy Onto The HD?

May 2, 2011

I have just booted to Puppy (for the first time in my life) on a 6 y/o amd type with a 40Gb HD, Ram: 512.I would like to make a permanent install of puppy onto the HD, I have read various pieces on how to install, defraging, repartitioning, differing file systems. However, i am a bit lost. The computer will be used for e-mail, web browsing, and watching the odd film (films installed on the drive) - I am unsure as to the best combination of file types and partition in order to keep puppy happy and keep some compatibility with the world outside of linux.

For instance, could i have a small partition with the puppy install and setting, and the rest on a format that would be compatible with windows/mac/linux? If so, how do I do this, pls bare in mind that my windows install is running but incomplete. I have the feeling this will be a really simple problem for someone to help me with,

Installation :: When Installing Puppy - Get Stuck After Searching For Puppy Files

Jun 21, 2009

I am new to Linux and I am trying to install puppy on an old IBM thinkpad 600X (10gb hd, 196mb ram) When installing puppy from a cd, it loads up and does the kernel stuff before "Searching for Puppy files in computer disk drives" - this takes about 10 minutes before saying "pup_421.sfs not found. Dropping out to initial ramdisk console" then it goes to "/bin/sh can't access tty; jon control turned off". then it stays like that and doesn't continue.

Ubuntu :: How To Change The Firefox Icon

Aug 6, 2010

I recently installed the Neu-0.6-PR3 icon theme (Which i love!). I have installed icon themes in the past, but have never really wanted to change individual icons within the packs until now. I like every icon in the pack so far, except the Firefox one. I found this old article explaining how to change the firefox icon, but i guess the directories have changed over time because i'm missing some[URL] still have the original icon in this folder, /usr/share/pixmaps/firefox.png

Ubuntu Installation :: Make A Live-USB Containing Among Others Both Desktop I386 And Desktop AMD64

May 1, 2010

I want to make a live-USB containing among others both Ubuntu desktop i386 and Ubuntu desktop AMD64. How do I go about this? I tried using unetbootin, first adding i386 and then amd64, but that failed. My computer with an athlon II did manage to boot, and showed it had booted into the 64-bit version (ram shown was 3.9 GB, i386 goes to about 2.7 I think), my wife's computer with a pentium 4 did not manage to boot, got to a black screen. I think this is because casper has issues, being overwritten (I'd seen something to that effect somewhere), and thus only the latest version added being booted (in this case amd 64).

I'm under the impression that the startup disc creator included won't help, nor won't the multicd.sh script, so how do I circumvent the issues?

Ubuntu :: Firefox Back Button Has No Icon?

May 3, 2011

I've installed 11.04 as an upgrade to 10.10. Now, the back/forward buttons in Firefox have no icons, which means they're hard to find, and they're also much thinner than usual. Also, the home button has disappeared and I can't put it back from the customize menu. I've reinstalled Firefox to no avail.

Ubuntu :: How To Make Folder Icon To Appear Bigger

Jan 24, 2010

I've made some of my own icons in Gimp and saved them as .pngs. The problem is, when I use them they always appear smaller than the system default icons. Is there no way to make them as the same size as the system icons? I read somewhere that GNOME (which is what I use) uses .png .svg and .xpm. I am only able to save as .png with GIMP, is there a way to get .svg and .xpm extension capabilities with GIMP?

These are the icons (only two):
1. HJ-Split Folder
2. Blood Frontier Folder

Is there maybe a specific way to make folder icons that I am not following? Using Ubuntu 9.10, Desktop edition.

Ubuntu :: Any Way To Make Power Icon Larger In 10.04?

Sep 8, 2010

Is there any way to make the power Icon at the top right of gnome panel larger in 10.04? This has been a problem for a while now. For people with less than perfect eyesight (my mother) it is far too small to be functional. Increasing the size of the panel to something useful on a large screen increases the size of most icons also, but the power button remains resolutely tiny. Another problem for her is the selection of window edges (too be honest, I find this frustrating myself) The selection area is incredibly small on a 22" screen and impossible for her to select.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Doesn't Start Upon Click On Its Icon

this morning I got a bad surprise: Firefox doesn't start upon my click on its icon.
Tried to uninstall and reinstall Firefox.... Even its icon disappeared from menus after reinstallation (no way to see it in the menu editor). I tried to start it from command line:

firefox %u
and got this reply from Ubuntu:
GLib-WARNING **: g_set_prgname() called multiple times

I am using Chrome now but I had some useful add-ons on Firefox and wouldn't like to loose them...

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Change Firefox Window Icon?

Mar 13, 2010

I used a custom firefox icon (included in hydroxygen theme) in jaunty. Now, in karmic, the window icon is stuck with the default firefox icon. I managed to get the gnome menu and panel icons to change by sim-linking to my desired icons and naming the links "firefox-3.5.png" I can see my custom icon when I first start Firefox, when the "starting firefox" window appears in the tasklist. After the main window is up, the icon reverts to the default icon.If you don't know what I mean here's a screenshot where I have an already-opened window alongside an opening window. I would like the window to use the icon in the instance on the right.

Ubuntu :: Make Desktop Read Only - Can't Make Changes

May 25, 2010

he clicks on everything on his GNOME desktop, and manages to delete everything, including menus, icons, etc. The people he lives with aren't skilled enough to fix it, and I live a good eight hours away. I have remote capabilities with NX, but that requires them to initiate a connection to my workstation here, which is more painful than I thought it would be. I need a way of locking down the desktop, so it's read-only, so he can't make the changes he seems to keep making. I figure I could make the .gnome directory read-only, but I don't know if that would affect the normal operation.

Ubuntu :: Make Docky Use Different Icon Theme Then System

Jun 28, 2010

I have got my Ubuntu desktop looking exactly how I want it apart from one little thing. I would like Docky to use a different icon theme then the one I am using for gnome. See these are the icons I want to use on Gnome/Nautilus: But these are the icons I want for Docky: So what I want to end up with is this: I have had a look in gconf-editor to see if there are any settings to do this but there doesn't seem to be any, I even tried adding a stringvalue with "icon_theme" and putting in the theme I wanted to use but that didn't work. Is there anyway I can manual edit a Docky config file to tell it what icon theme to use?
