Gnome panel "Create Launcher" question bug or just poor design
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 18, 2010
Gnome 2.30.0 (Ubuntu 10.04) I wish to create a launcher to a particular subdirectory.
- right click on Panel and select Add to Panel
- choose Custom Application Launcher
- Set Type to Location
- input desired Name
Next to the Location text box is a Browse... button. I would expect to be able to browse to the subdirectory which I wish to access with my launcher. However, the Browse... button brings up a window which is titled "Choose a file..." and which will only "Open" a file, not a subdirectory.
Is this a bug I should report or just an example of poor user interface design? If the latter, is the issue with the Create Launcher program (for bringing up a file locater) or with the File Locater program (which should have the option of selecting a location as well as a file?
Ubuntu 9.04 Create Launcher Question
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 7, 2010
I tried to add a new launcher to a xfce panel on an Ubuntu 9.04. The problem is that I want to create a launcher for a .txt file - and the launcher does not give me the option of choosing "type". I read the following:
When you create or edit a launcher, the following properties can be set:
Type Use the drop-down list to specify whether this launcher starts an application or opens a document:
Application The launcher starts an application.
Application in Terminal The launcher starts an application in a terminal.
File The launcher opens a file."
How to remove duplicated launcher on gnome panel menu?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 3, 2005
I just upgraded my gnome from 2.8 to 2.10.2. However such an update results in a duplicated launcher for the screensaver in the Gnome panel->System menu-> Preferences.
Is there anything (e.g. Menu editor) for me to solve this ugly behavior? I tried smeg but I can't edit the System menu. (Or maybe I don't figure out how to use smeg properly).
Thank you for your attentions!
problems with samba, or just question...?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 3, 2004
I've recently installed Mandrake10 and I find difficult to configure Samba Server. I can see from Linux my Windows machine and it works perfectly, but when I try to access my Linux machine from the other, named Localhost (I don't know how to change this name) it says I don't have enough permissions.
I've installed some packages that let me see "Server Wizards" (translated, not sure about English name) and it seems to be the solution, but when I choose "Without restrictions", the next tab makes me choose who has permissions to do it (although I think everybody should have access if I say no restrictions...) and I put my users and groups but when I click Next, nothing happens. I've tried everything, I've put some different combinations of users even "no users" on it, but nothing happens. Is this a bug?
Well, any help is appreciated!!
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE! :-)
How to create a simply debian package (just compress/extract sources or any files with debian packaging)
location: linuxexchange.com - date: September 27, 2013
I need to create a new .deb package of Realxtend project (https://github.com/realXtend/naali). It's a huge project with a lot of dependencies and a automatic bash script (/tools/Linux/build-deps.bash) to download, compile and install all deps and executables. So I try many tutorials but I often some errors and i'm stuck because tutorials are outdated (with new 'rules' file mainly) ...and also because i'm not a dev initialy.
So, for beginning, I just need create a .deb file exactly like an simple archive ie not interpret any building process, 'makefile', or others kind of things. I would like just compress/uncompress a .deb file contains all project already configured with all dependencies like a .zip file with any folder, uncompress all content just next the archive.
I have 2 folders /naali and /naali-deps with various files (exe, src, lib,...) configured with running build-deps.bash on Ubuntu Precise x64.
I run dh_make,
clean and fill /debian files (changelog, control, copyright)
how do add a 'Create Launcher to the GNOME 3 classic desktop
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 3, 2012
Does any one know how I can add a 'Create Launcher' option to the GNOME 3 Classic Desktop? I have found the following on the Linux Mint forum and a few other web sites however it does not work. The script they suggest shows in the Nautilus scripts folder but it does not run. However when I run the command in a terminal it works. The command is:
gnome-desktop-item-edit --create-new ~/Desktop
The suggestion was to create a script called 'Create Launcher' containing the above command and save it in:- ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/ and then make it an executable file.

Ubuntu Linux & Windows 7 Dual Boot or just use Windows in a Virtual Machine?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 11, 2013
I'm looking at making the switch from a laptop with Windows 7 to one with Ubuntu Linux (my HP Pavilion is dying a slow but unrepairable hardware death) but I have a couple programs I'm probably going to have to run with Windows. A few games I'd like to keep but mostly my Scrivener novel writing program that only has a glitchy beta version for Linux, plus I already own the Windows version and can put it on a second machine. Disclaimer: I've never actually used Linux. At all. But because I frequently have to live off public WiFi due to travel, I'd rather have something more secure, and nothing makes a writer swear more than having to do a hard restart in the middle of a chain of thought because of a freeze.
I'm looking at a System 76 Pangolin Performance laptop which comes with Ubuntu installed. I can get a legit copy of Windows 7 relatively inexpensively. So my questions are: 1) Do I need dual boot? Or will most things run ok in a virtual machine? Since my writing program integrates
Changing Gnome panel tabs height
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 25, 2009
In Windoze I like to keep my panel with opened stuff on the left, because in can accomodate more tabs with their full names. It gets pretty wide, but it doesn't matter at 1680x1050.
When I put the panel on the left in Ubuntu, it gets ugly, because it literally transposes everything, and the tabs become tall instead of wide. How could I change that?
I tried looking at Gnome Panel settings in gconf-editor under panel>toplevels>panel_0 - no tabs height option there. Is there a way to change it?
