There's an OSS screensaver on windows that I love called PixelCity (links:blog post, github). it's pretty cool. and it runs fine on my Ubuntu (Karmic 9.10) with wine.Is there a way I can tell the gnome-screensaver about it so I can use it as one of my screensavers? I'm still fairly new to Gnome and the whole "screensavers as themes" thing is still confusing me.I've found my themesdir and tried to create a .desktop file for it, but obviously I've gotten something wrong as it just doesn't show when I open the screensaver prefs dialog, no error, no message, it's just not there.
Installing the xscreensaver packages added the extra screensavers I was missing, and I'm a pixelcity away from perfection..Of course the perfect solution would be if someone ported the screensaver natively to linux, which shouldn't be too hard as the source is open, it already runs on openGL and tries to confine most windows stuff to a single file. But I don't know C++ or 3D code or win/linux internals so I wouldn't know where to start..
what file do you set the defaults in? I want to set all my users to use a blank screensaver and a time out of 20min. password required. Have been looking all over the place for a valid config file I can edit and the syntax for it. I should also mention I want these to be default for all user that CANNOT be changed except by root. Red Hat running gnome in my case.
I have Ubuntu 10.10 running here and a Windows 7 desktop. I'm using samba to share files and folders. I have full read/write access to the 7 box, and vice versa. However, whenever a user of the 7 box drops a file on my Desktop, for example (it could be any of my shared directories), it always has a padlock on it and I have to chown it before I can move or delete it.Can anyone tell me how to get myself permanent ownership of these files? I'm pretty sure I had this problem once before, and it was an issue of adding myself to a particular group, but I forget.
I had to copy some files from terminal to a folder in /usr/share/foldername so I did sudo cp -r something/ /usr/share/foldername which worked, but when I wanted to do it in Gnome, it kept saying I have no permission. How do I do it so it asks for permission, or how do I do sudo + task in Gnome ?
I am running Windows 7 on an HP laptop. I recently used Wubi to run Dual OS with Ubuntu. Everything is working fine, Ubuntu is great, but I am somewhat of a newbie and want to know: Is there any way that I can transfer, or share, my windows 7 files (music, pictures, etc) in Ubuntu? I can't seem to figure it out?
I have Ubuntu 10.04 in my laptop and at the same time I have Windows 7 (partitioned disk). I use mostly Ubuntu, but I need windows for some stuff. I want to share files of windows with Ubuntu (is weird but when I installed Ubuntu never gave me the option "share files from windows", I dunno why). Anyway, I can see the disk in Ubuntu, and I can see the folder /Documents and settings/, that creates windows by default with my files. However, the route is too long to arrive there from Ubuntu using the Terminal.
I created a shadow link using lndir to arrive to my files easier. It works fine, however, sometimes when I go to the files using this route, these are lightened in red, and when I try to enter to one of these folders, the system doesn't recognize it. After a while, these are in blue and I can go in them. Why it is happening?. What I did Is the "correct" way to do it?.
I have the cowon iAudio7 music player with vfat file system and increasingly running into permission problems when I try to delete files. Unsurprisingly I am now running out of space. I am figuring if I could somehow mount it onto a folder in my home partition I will have full permissions. The problem is the drives name which is exactly with space: So even if try to delete files in the terminal I don't know how to cd into:
Code: /media/I AUDIO7 note the space between I & AUDIO7.
Does anyone here knows how to share files/folder with two different GNU/Linux OSes?
I have a notebook and desktop computer here. The Operating System of my notebook is Easypeasy and my desktop computer is Linux Mint. I already install the Samba on both computers. I could open the folders that I shared under my Documents. But when I tried to open the shared folder under the NTFS drives or even the drives itself (of my notebook or desktop computer) it will prompt an error.
This is the error: "Unable to mount location. Failed to mount Windows share."
I need a command-line method of copying files from a Linux box to a Windows machine that is in a domain and requires authentication. I cannot install additional software or services on the Windows XP machine. I can install any software on the Linux machine. I've tried scp, but the connection failed and if my understanding is correct it is because scp requires that the target (windows machine) be running an ssh service. Is there a command-line linux utility that can pass Windows domain user and password and then copy a file from the linux machine to a share on the windows machine?
I wanted to get a screensaver as my background so I installed xscreensaver didn't work out to the way I wanted to so I removed it apt-get remove xscreensaver then it asked for some other packages to be removed so I did apt-get autoremove xscreensaver was still there working instead of gnome-screensaver so I did a command search to find folders of xscreensaver and remove them whereis xscreensaver and it did remove them, but gnome-screensaver still doesn't start up.
I've tried this command gnome-Message: screensaver-command --activate but I get this error: Message: Screensaver is not running!
I've tried googling for a way to start gnome-screensaver in terminal but no joy, anyone know how to get this to start.
The Gnome Screensaver preferences window is freezing my desktop. I went into synaptic and tried to remove it (to use xscreensaver instead). But synaptic, in removing gnome-screensaver package, wanted to ADD a bunch of packages, lots of KDE stuff (which I don't want). Is there any way around this? If not, is there a way to reset the gnome-screensaver config file (whatever it is) so that it doesn't freeze on startup? This problem arose after I selected a particular screensaver in the gui window.
My Torrents will not start due to a "Permissions denied" error.The folders with the files being download have it set 777, so I'm thinking it's something else.When I look at the auth log, It does appear that it is that folder causing the issue.I can keep guessing the cause of permissions, but I do not know how to trace the problem.
I have 30 systems in a LAN . My users need to login as domain user from their XP clients and store their files in the Linux server. They should not be allowed to store in local machine and also should be granted a particular size of space in server.
what are the procedures to be done in linux server and
just like in windows we access shared files in by typing in run command
\192.168.0.1 is there a provision to view shared files from xp to Linux
Although xscreensaver is much better and liked by many users, the Ubuntu devs replaced it with gnome-screensaver simply cause -
1) It's integrates better with the gnome-desktop. 2) It follows release cycles of Gnome.
Since the devs and admins won't listen, we users have to clean their **** up and this is the howto - In Ubuntu, the gnome-screensaver is running; but xscreensaver is better, so we need to replace it. The gnome-screensaver runs as a daemon...removing this gnome-screensaver package will remove this executable also -

At some point, I suspect since the last kernel upgrade, I've begun experiencing a problem when the screen locks: I tap a key on the keyboard and the monitors wake up, but I get no "unlock" dialog. I can usually Ctrl-Alt-F1, login and gracefully reboot the system, but sometimes I have to hit hard reset. For now I've disabled the screensaver in "System -> Preferences -> screensaver" (I assume that'll stop the problem), but that's not an optimal solution.
I am on Ubuntu 10.04, and I think I have had this problem since I installed it. When I type my password into gnome-screensaver and click "Unlock," all the buttons become disabled and the cursor turns into the "busy" look. I have to go into one of the virtual terminals and do "killall gnome-screensaver." This happens maybe 75% of the time when the screen locks.
Also, this last week or two there is a new problem where the gnome-screensaver covers only part of the screen and I can still see and use most of the desktop.
Everytime I unlock my screen in KDE from the screensaver the background for the Gnome interface momentarily appears before the KDE plasma workspace returns. It only appears for a second and, sure, I can live with it but I wondered if there is a way to fix it and why it is happening in the first place? I initially installed ubuntu 10.4 then installed kubuntu through the package manager and have since upgraded to 10.10 and now 11.4. I think this problem has been here since install of kubuntu
I mount a partition to a directory and ls -liah tells me that everyone has read/write/execute permissions on the whole thing, but I try to save a file into the partition and I get an access denied error. First of all this doesn't make sense because ls is telling me I do have access.
Then it gets weirder. I run sudo chown -R me:me directory. The command exits without error, but then when I go and look at the directory again with ls, it still shows up as owned by root and I still have the same problem. This is particularly strange because I am still able to change permissions normally in the operating system filesystem. It just won't work on the mounted partition.
I have three partitions. One for each: Windows, Debian and my files. I wanted a partition available in all systems, so I created FAT32 and mounted it as /data and drive D. In linux I created symlinks in my /home folder to /data/documents/xxx/xxx. I wanted to save my projects on that partition, but in every IDE I tried I get the permission denied error. Screenshot What should I do to make /data writable for IDEs? As normal user I have full access to it.
I have a DLink 323 NAS with a USB port for a printer. Im trying to setup the printer. When I get to the part where I have to enter the username and password for the NAS, no matter what I put in for a password and username, I get the same error message (see attached screenshot). I can not get my network printer to work because of this.

all I wanted to get was the "rss-glx"-package as additional screensavers. I am not proud of the results:So I used the Synaptic tool, and since that time the gnome-screensaver shows a black screen instead of any GL-animation in the preview-windows (the small and the big one). The simple screensavers still work (e.g. the Gnome feets).I propably made it worse when trying to uninstall gnome-screensaver and installing xscreensaverxscreensaver crashed on each preview (if the screensaver was installed) and printed an "exited abnormally" (yellow lines on a black screen).Then I was trying to get the original state back - without any "rss-glx".Still not succeeding, the GL-screensavers show nothing except a black screen (e.g. AntSpotLight).So what do I have to do to get back the original state (or to run rss-glx)
Just started using Fedora 10 and having a problem with evolution address book.I have checked the permissions on 'system' but they seem ok - owner was set to rwx, I changed the other permissions just to check but still get the error.Not sure what to check now as it claims its a permission error but the permissions seem ok.
