I am using Ubuntu 10.04. Every time I mount NTFS partition some folders by the name RECYCLER, $RECYCLE.BIN, System Volume Information and a file by the name Thumbs.db got auto generated. This is really cluttering up the partition. What could this be? I've tried hiding those folders but they always reappears. System Vol Inf sometimes goes upto 6MB while the other two are always less than 70Kb. I' am dual booting with Win 7.

Hi, I have been working to build a new Linux distribution that runs off a live CD. The live CD is set up and runs a terminal. It can handle multiple logins. What do I need to do to get xfree86 with iceWM to work on it. Thanks, James

This is related to remote desktop over VNC. I'm not sure if this should be posted in the Desktop or Server section. I'm sure a mod will move this if necessary. In short, the problem is that CentOS 5 won't recognize PNG files. There are a few errors about it when X starts. The end result is that icons in PNG format don't show up on the desktop or in the menus. I tried re-installing gtk2 and libpng but with no success. Here are 4 related errors that show when X is started: [QUOTE]/usr/bin/gnome-session: /usr/local/lib/libpng12.so.0: no version information available (required …

I got an old generic notebook. The spec is Pentium M 1.6GHz, 20GB hard disk, 512MB RAM, S3 graphic card, 85 keys keyboard and the OS is Ubuntu 9.10. Everything works fine but I seem can't find the keyboard layout for my notebook. It uses 105 key layout as default. So some of the key doesn't work properly. I have to keep on pressing the key for few second to use that key. Thank in advance to those who help.

I want to know what "nautilus -q" command does in linux. As I use this command from Linux command line, all the icons from the desktop disappears and even no mouse click works upon desktop. When I restart the computer only then all icons appears on the desktop as usual. Is there any command in linux which causes reactivating and re-appear the desktop icons without restarting the computer after using nautilus -q. As far as I know , nautilus -q quits the nautilus. Plz, help me if anyone have any solution or details about natilus commands.

In shared hosting you will share the same IP address with other users while in dedicated hosting you own your personal server and are responsible for its maintenance and security but that's not in shared hosting. Shared hosting is cheapest among them.In shared hosting as many users share same IP address, if one misbehaving user gets that IP address black listed other web sites on that server also get blacklisted.

I have been exploring netbook systems with various Linux distributions for some time now. I have tried (and still have loaded in one place or another) both Gnome and KDE "standard" desktops, the Ubuntu Netbook Remix, Moblin (does [I]anyone[/I] really like this? It drives me screaming into the night every time I try it), Xfce, SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop, and a very preliminary version of Kubuntu for netbooks (although to be fair, so far that is nothing more than a few tweaks in font sizes and such, and is not significantly different from the standard KDE desktop). I have heard …

Ubuntu Linux 8.04. System > Preferences > Appearance A few issues. 1. The application uses 100% of my CPU until I kill it with [icode]killall -9 gnome-appearance-properties[/icode]. Just pressing close does nothing. 2. All of my theme, control setup, etc. thumbnails and previews don't show up at all. A few do, but not many. 3. On all dark themes, the menu text (and clock, etc) are all black on black (or too dark on black). Thanks in advance. -- Alex (screenshots attached showing a few problems) EDIT: This problem is resolved when logging into my "test" account. Any other account …

My themes on GNOME are messed up, ie: Black on black. All of the dark ones have this problem. And all of them in "Appearance" are missing their thumbnail (themes and icons). This is only under my user [icode]alex[/icode], however, and if i log into my other user, [icode]test[/icode], the black themes look perfect! Is this a problem with my [icode]/home/alex/.Themes/[/icode] directory?

Hi there everyone, I've just started with Ubuntu 7.10 and KDevelop 3.5.8 (just installed, true greenhorn to Ubuntu) . First, I created this hello-world program: #include <cstdio> int main() { printf("Hello World\n"); return 0;} with gedit, compiling and linking it with g++ -o hello hello.cpp. Running it with ./hello worked fine and "Hello World" was shown on console window. Now I tried out this task in KDevelop 3.5.8. But serious error occured: /home/dev/hello: Permission denied *** Exited with status: 126 *** Does KDevelop need special permissions on folder /home/dev/hello? On the other hand, gedit and g++ also wrote files to …

Hmm. I attached a screenshot, and this is a little glitch that I can't seem to fix. I fixed a small squares issue (where the font was all squares, check my blog in my signature). Yet I still have this issue where the menu and time/date applet is black on black text. How can I fix this?

Hello all, I hope this is the correct forum for this issue. I am using the FC4 distro which the most current YUM update is QT3*. I found a more recent RPM, QT4.1* which was for FC4. It downloaded and installed without a problem (although I can't say that for the doc package). I now have two versions of QT loaded according to the rpm -q return. The problem is that I want to use QT4* as a selection from my gnome desktop. It still only shows the old version on the menu and the apps list. How do I …

I would like to delete my kmenu and make my own, but I don't want to lose the old one in case I change my mind. Is there a way to back it up so I can restore it at a later date?

When I right-click on the desktop, I see the following things: Bookmarks Run Command... Windows Configure Desktop Switch User Lock Session Log Out "Kamex" I'm curious, is there possibly a way to modify this menu? I don't use Konquerer any more, so one thing I'd like to do is remove the bookmarks menu from here, possibily add some frequently used applications as well. So, can it be done?

Hello! I'm in trouble and have to use XConfigurator. The problem is I don't have the specs of my monitor, KFC CB-14 (CB1414VS). So what to input to HSync and VSync? Also if someone knows the maximum Hsync value for 800x600, it would help a lot. (Is 85 Hz too much?) This is guite an old monitor and I didn't get manuals with it. Thanks! --ilzu
