Feb 13, 2010

anyone's got around to trying the "remember currently running applications" feature in gnome? It has previously been reported buggy. Users who made their system "remember" their currently running apps were unable to make the system "forget" these.

Ubuntu :: How To Save Session And Remember Running Applications Between Thems

Feb 1, 2011

I used to use kubuntu last years, but I decide to give Ubuntu a try instead.A thing that was working on kubuntu's KDE by default, is that when you close your session, the system remembers what applications was you using, so in the next boot up they will be open exactly as it was.I would like to have this feature also on my Ubuntu 10.04, but I've been not lucky searching for the option to enable it.

Fedora :: Get F10 (Gnome) To Remember Where Screen Positions Are?

Ubuntu :: Gnome Desktop Does Not Remember Window Position / Size?

Jul 7, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

The issue is that Gnome will not "remember" the size and location of the window in which an app was last run. For example - I run Disk Usage Analyzer and stretch the window to be the full height of the screen and about half the width of the screen and move it to the far left of the desktop. I then close the app. The next time I run it the app comes up in a "default" window size, not the size I last used, positioned randomly on the desktop.

p.s. I should add that some apps seem to remember their prior window size/position. For example OpenOffice.org, Firefox, Nautilus.

Ubuntu Installation :: No USB Feature With VirtualBox Running XP As A Guest?

Mar 24, 2011

I tried adding myself to the group vboxusers but it did not help.

I then read that the reason that i don't have any sub capability when i'm running XP as guest OS using VirtualBox is that I have a open source version of the program.

So I uninstalled the one I got through software center and downloaded and installed one from VirtualBox website. It installs but does not tell me where to find it in the menu so I don't know how to launch the program. It also doesn't show up as an "installed software" when I search for it in software center.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Doesn't Support A 'reboot Into [OS]' Feature?

Feb 5, 2010

Since Gnome doesn't support a 'reboot into [OS]' feature, one has to use a script. Such a script would be used in both windows (probably batch file) and linux (maybe python?) to replace the GRUB menu file and by that select the OS in which you want to boot on reboot.Both OS's should run another script on startup to put the default menu file back.

Problems:- Ext4: there are no windows drivers available (yet)(they would have to support reading and writing)- GRUB2: the old GRUB menu was very easy, one had to edit just one file (!or replace it!). In GRUB2 things got complicated. I think you can edit grub.cfg and that it will still work, the reason why you should not edit it is just because it gets overwritten by running update-grub2. But I'm not sure. If - The script I found is used to edit the Grub file, not to replace it with another one. (This is but a minor problem.)

Solutions:- Ext4 is mountable with Ext2fsd (not with Ext2ifs because of the inode size), it has been reported to work with extent enabled, but I haven't tested it yet.Here is a tutorial to mounting Ext4 drives in windows (which require disabling extent)- If editing the grub.cfg would really be a bad idea, downgrading to GRUB (legacy)- If I couldn't mount Ext4, trying to put Grub on a separate FAT/NTFS partition (is this possible with Grub/Grub2?) or else downgrading to Ext3 (= slower)

Fedora :: Multiseat Feature That Had Been In The Feature List At One Point?

Mar 9, 2010

Does anyone know what happened to the Multiseat feature that had been in the feature list at one point?To briefly summarise, a single machine with multiple graphics cards, sound cards, keyboards & mice provides multiple seats for users. Each user gets their own monitor, keyboard, mouse & perhaps audio. The rest of the machine resources are then shared.

The last I saw on the topic was this discussion, although I have a recollection that there was going to be support in a newer version of X.Org. I've googled around quite a bit, but can't seem to find anything.

Anybody know anything? It would be a great feature to have and it's frustrating to have had such an omission since F8 :-o

Fedora :: Disable The "Desktop Expose" Feature Of Gnome?

Feb 14, 2011

I'm not sure if this is a feature of Gnome, compviz, or some other part of Fedora, but whenever I place my mouse in the upper right corner of the desktop, all of my open windows zoom out to a Mac-like Expose feature which allows me to select which window I'd like to change focus to. Here is an example of what this looks like: [URL]

Does anyone know how to disable this feature? I actually find it highly annoying, as I tend to place the mouse in that region either on accident or unintentionally, especially when accessing my machine remotely via VNC. I've had a lot of trouble googling for combinations of "Gnome expose" and "Gnome desktop expose", I have a feeling I am calling this feature by the wrong name. how to do this myself - install the Compiz Configuration Settings Manager (the package name is "ccsm") and disable the "Scale" plugin.

Ubuntu :: Running Applications In 10.10?

Mar 4, 2011

I'm a 3D animator and use Blender for all my work. I've been happily using Ubuntu 10.04 without any problems.I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10, and now whenever I click the Blender application file I get an error saying that theres no program set to run this application. I get a similar error when I try to run Voodoo (the open-source camera tracker). Mind you, both these programs ran just fine on Ubuntu 10.04. Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

It's really weird, some applications simply don't start up. Skype for one, just shuts down before logging in, and Calibre shuts down instantly, when I try to run it. I've tried to remove and re-install it, but that doesn't do any good.

Ubuntu :: Netbook Plasma Desktop And Running Applications

Mar 20, 2011

When i run the KDE 4.6.1 netbook plasma desktop, there's a icon in the right upper corner telling how many applications i've running. When I click it, the desktop zooms out and shows me the applications in a graphical way, wich is pretty nice....but...then i can not select an application to switch to and have to wait a certain time out to go back to the running program i had in the foreground allready.

When i change the settings of this icon to show it always in a menu, it does work allright (but is less nice)..

Ubuntu :: How To Use Gnome Icons In KDE Applications

Jan 18, 2011

I run Gnome and i want KDE applications to use the same icon set as i have for my Gnome desktop. I have searched the file system and found a folder called "default.kde4" in /usr/share/icons. I assume this is where KDE applications pull their icons from. Firstly, this folder is a linked folder. How do i find out where the original folder that it is linked to is? Secondly, i am assuming, that the KDE icons won't be a name for name match for the icons i am using in Gnome (Faenza just in case anyone is curious). What is the easiest way to get the KDE icons changed for the one's i am using in Gnome?

Fedora :: 13 Becomes Unresponsive When Too Many Applications Running?

Jan 17, 2011

I am using Fedora 13 64bit on Dell Vostro full 4GB RAM system with default Gnome GUI.

This is very annoying problem that I don't how to fix except by rebooting the whole PC.

When I have too many applications running ( like browser windows), the system start acting sluggish. The fist symptoms appear in Eclipse IDE which becomes so terrible it just becomes frozen for sometime one whole minute after I try to edit something in the editor. Then Firefox seems like it has crashed. Google Chrome becomes very unresponsive as well. All GUI applications including File manager becomes unresponsive.
When I check System Monitor, the CPU is still around 20% and memory is at 80% but the system seems getting fried up. This progressively becomes worse until I soft reboot it or if I dont do it evetually the whole system is fried, no response to any keyboard key or mouse and I have to hit the hardware turn off button.

I regularly yum update the system but this makes no difference.

Please don't tell not to run too many applications because I need those for my work. I thought Linux is well designed Operating System but I am very disappointed so far.

OpenSUSE :: All Applications Are Running At A Nice Value Of 19?

All my applications seem to be running at nice of 19 except bash and daemons which are running at 0. My understanding is that the default nice value is either 0 or 10 (forget which) but not 19.Ran search in /etc/sysconfig/ editor and no results for "nice" and looked at the bashrc files and again no lines contain "nice".
