You won't have a working system with just gnome-session-fallback and "usual ubuntu terminal" (whatever that is). For one, gnome-session-fallback has lots and lots of other packages as required direct and indirect dependencies. If you want to install the absolute strict minimum to get a working gnome-session-fallback, you can use two approaches: Use the ...

If that isn't working then you can create a .desktop file for your script. It would look something like this: # $Id: vbox-starter.desktop 22 $ [Desktop Entry] Name=Custom Virtualbox Starter GenericName=VBox Comment=VBox Exec=VBoxSDL --startvm virtualmachine Terminal=true Type=Application Icon=Virtualbox Categories=GNOME;GTK;Utility; Note that since your ...

It can be done by adding custom actions to policykit. If you want to run gedit as root with pkexec you have to create new file /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.policykit.gedit.policy for example: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE policyconfig PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD PolicyKit Policy Configuration 1.0//EN" ...

It is shown after you have selected a user. Hit enter or click on your name. A gear-wheel will appear where you can choose the session to run. If you plan to use KDE, I'd suggest changing GDM to KDM. systemctl disable gdm systemctl enable kdm reboot

The bash construct $(command) will expand into the output of command. You could use it thusly: gconftool-2 --type string \ --set /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename \ "$(find /usr/share/backgrounds/scenery/ | grep jpg | shuf -n1)" Note that I kept your find command exactly as you put it in your question, but perhaps it would be better expressed ...

Unmount the USB-drive and open up a new terminal. First get the device name with: sudo fdisk -l (Example: /dev/sdb1) Create new a mount point: sudo mkdir -p /mnt/usb Then mount the USB-drive back on with ownership set to you: sudo mount -o uid=$(id -u),gid=$(id -g) /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb/ In the command above, the only thing you have to change is the ...

Please note that a gnome-session-fallback and usual Ubuntu terminal which is in really a gnome-terminal will not make you a running system. A system needs much more to be alive, It needs a kernel, drivers, I/O modules , Window Manager , File Manager , etc.... So you have many choices to make a minimal Ubuntu running system. One of them as answered before ...

By "create" I think you mean "install". Since your post is tagged Ubuntu what you want is a minimal install ISO that you can download from here. Note that even a minimal distro will contain quite a bit more than two packages. If you really want to build your own Linux (not recommended for beginners) you can try the Linux From Scratch project.

Yes, it does have an icon name: inode-fifo. The icon name usually matches the mime type, in this case inode/fifo. And yes, you cannot find it in the official docs because the specification does not list all possible icon names it only aims to (emphasize mine): lay out a standard naming scheme for icon creation, as well as providing a minimal list of must ...

The other solution1 has some inconveniences: - it requires root access - it's a global change so it affects all users - upgrading sound-theme-freedesktop restores the file For the record, the proper way to do it (and avoid all of the above) is via a custom sound theme that disables2 the default sound file used by gnome-screenshot (the name of the file is ...

dconf-service is automatically started by the session daemon1 when needed, as per the same documentation page: Users or administrators should never need to start the service, as it will be automatically started by dbus-daemon(1) whenever an application tries to write settings. Reading values from the dconf database does not involve the service; it is only ...
