Synaptics Touchpad two finger scrolling greyed out
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 6, 2012
I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 on a HP laptop: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/p...ea_middle_east
The problem is that two finger scrolling is greyed out, and I can't select it. Two finger scrolling works in Windows and I think on a previous version of Ubuntu, 10.10 I think? Also, edge scrolling works fine.
Help would be appreciated, thanks.
[SOLVED] Thunderbird calendar completely greyed out
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 26, 2013
today my Thunderbird calendar got completely greyed out. I can't set tasks, change the view (from day to multi-week) or in general push any button (as can be seen on the screenshot provided in the attachment).
I did run an update today that installed new kernel updates (can't remember exactly whichh ones though). I am running Xubuntu, and the calendar extension is supposed to be compatible with the 24v of Thunderbird.
I can't see anything in the configuration that I could use to remedy this situation, so I'm not really sure what to do about it
[SOLVED] Debian barebones Xfce install: shutdown & restart greyed out
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 24, 2008
Just a quick question...I did a barebones install of Debian Etch, then added xorg, gdm, xfce, and synaptic. From there I installed just the apps I need. When I shut the computer down, the only option I have available is "log off". Shut down and restart are greyed out and unselectable. So when I shut down, I have to log off, then shut down from the login window.
Any ideas how I can get the shutdown and restart buttons activated?
Thanks in advance.
[SOLVED] Fedora 15 systemconfigservices 0.101.2 No Enable/Disable (Greyed Out)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 3, 2011
With Fedora 14 KDE, using "Service Manger" the Enable/Disable icons were available to set up a service to start at boot time.
Now that I'm running Fedora 15 KDE those icons are greyed out.
What am I missing in my set-up to have them available?
I've tried using the root user and they are not available there either.
Thanks for any help,
qtparted resize option greyed out
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 12, 2011
I have been using gparted and find it easy and intuitive to use. However, I have recently made a KDE installation and want to also try out some of its native apps so I installed qtparted, now I want to resize an existing partition (ext4) and find that the resize option is greyed out. The partition is not mounted and I could have resize it easily with gparted.
What am I missing?
qtparted resize greyed out (I booted with Knoppix CD)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 10, 2005
I wish to resize my Redhat's /dev/hda2 (ext3) partition (reduce it's size). I have decided to follow the many suggestions found on the web which say to boot from a boot disk or live linux CD and run parted or qtparted. I have chosen to use Knoppix 3.7 with qtparted v0.4.4. (I have no wish to use the command line to accomplish this task, so please do not reply if you have no suggestions on how to fix qtparted; but kind thanks to you anyway).
The problem is that qtparted will not let me resize this partition (i.e. the resize button is greyed out). I want to know why this is and what I can do to resolve it. Again I do not want any suggestions like "yeah, I've seen that, but you can use the command line and issue (a host of painful CLI commands)" as I've seen in similar posts to a question like this. I certainly have the ability to do that. But then this defeats the purpose of having a nice GUI doesn't it.
A little more information. /dev/hda1 (ext3) Also has this li
"Users and Groups" greyed out not usable
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 6, 2008
I am trying to add a user using the GNOME "Users and Groups" tool, but it won't let me. The "Add user" button is greyed out. Apparently this has changed in Hardy Heron and I'm supposed to click the "Unlock" button first, but the "Unlock" button is greyed out, too.
KDE Partition Manager Options Greyed Out
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 21, 2014
Kubuntu 13.10. Just installed this morning. x86-64
My hard drive has a bunch of unallocated space at the end, after the swap partition. I want to create a partition there. When I launch Partition Manager from the menu, it asks for my password, which I enter. But all options except unmount are greyed out. Selecting the unallocated space doesn't give me any options except to view the properties. I closed this, opened a terminal. sudo partitionmanager. enter password. Partition Manager comes up. Same thing.
How can I get this to work?
thanks in advance
[SOLVED] USB devices greyed out in VirtualBox PUEL
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 3, 2010
I'm using VirtualBox PUEL and have enabled the USB controller (including EHCI) on a XP VM and have added filters for the devices I want to pass through. Unfortunately the entries in the menu listing the USB devices are greyed out. Running VirtualBox as root has them enabled but the VM doesn't boot past the menu you get when you press the F8 key on startup.
