I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 and had to do 1 additional step on top on MiGrieves' suggestion, which I'd read about here - http://askubuntu.com/a/387313 In short, I had to go to Edit -> Profile Preferences -> Title and Command and choose "Keep initial title" in the dropdown. I left the "Terminal" in the "Initial Title" field though.

For some apps (e.g. file-roller) this can be fixed by changing the StartupNotify key value from true to false in their respective .desktop files (e.g. /usr/share/applications/file-roller.desktop). The above doesn't work for all apps (e.g. nautilus) so another way to fix the problem would be a custom shell extension; just to give you an idea, you could ...

Create a full system backup using Clonezilla or similar. If you have enough storage you could clone your current distro and any others you test to (for example) a removable hard drive and restore whichever one you prefer.

this issue has appeared in other forums on different versions of Ubuntu and people using gnome. the easiest way to fix the issue is make sure that you have Compiz Config Settings Manager installed. sometimes the install never is done right and the manager has to be re installed. to install it search for compizconfig-settings-manager in Software Center and ...

This may not actually be the case, since LXDE can usually run Gnome programs. It is possible that PHPStorm specifically calls functions only present in KDE and Gnome, but I have found some evidence of users getting JetBrains applications to run in LXDE (see below). It think that KDE and Gnome are only listed as "required" because they are the only ...

What you mean by GNOME auto starting is, most likely, actually gdm (GNOME Display Manager) which provides the login screen. Just disable the service to stop it from autostarting. Arch uses systemd, so you want to do: # systemctl disable gdm Reboot and gdm won't automatically start. You can then manually start it whenever you want with: # systemctl start ...

If you want to disable completely the graphical session and boot into rescue mode edit the kernel line in grub at startup and add an s at the end of it. Alternatively you can also add systemd.unit=rescue to that line. See this thread To start gnome from commandline it depends on the login manager. If you have gdm for example try sudo gdm. If it's just ...

This is WRT Gtk 2.0, although I presume 3.0 is similar (and Xfce uses 2.0 anyway, I think). Themes, etc. are defined using configuration files. The default one is ~/.gtkrc-2.0, but it can be overridden using an environment variable: GTK2_RC_FILES=~/.gtk2-altrc xfce4-terminal Will start the Xfce terminal using ~/.gtk2-altrc. The easiest way to generate ...

Your question has way too much unnecessary information, but I'll answer anyway. Your best option is to open the menu in your menu editor(depends on what desktop enviroment you're using as to how you do it), when in the menu editor just mark the "Root Terminal" entry and figure out which command is used and then set that to your keyboard combo.

Probably here is the answer you are looking for: If you are using GNOME 3.4 or newer and installation still doesn't work, check to make sure that the "GNOME Shell Integration" plugin is installed and enabled in your browser preferences. Some browsers have a feature, click-to-play, which make it so the plugin cannot start without user ...

Pretty old question but with CentOS and Gnome 2.x nowadays, there is a pretty simple menu for it. It's under System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts and you just have to choose the choice "Desktop" and then under that, "Run Dialog". When you click it, it lets you press the keys you want. It originally has "ALT+F2" listed but if you happen to choose ...

Did you use the full URL for accessing a SMB printer? Log in on the CUPS web interface and choose to add a new printer. As a device choose "Windows Printer via SAMBA". For the device location, enter: smb://username:password@hostname/printer_name The above is from the Arch Linux CUPS Printer Sharing wiki page. Note: to log in othe CUPS web interface, ...

@rob is right. GNOME is technically an official GNU project. However, there is a lot of interesting history. Let's roll back the clock It's 1996. There are no desktop environments. Users and sysadmins assemble environments from a hodge-podge of programs. Different window managers, different applications, maybe a dock. There are two major toolkits on the ...

I have installed debian wheezy with a few upgrades required to work with steam imported from jessie. While doing that upgrade make sure you don't upgrade the main xorg files. I've been enjoying some nice 3d rendering in games. I'll also add that the fglrx I'm using is directly from amd, and not the debian version.

Java is a non script language so you need to compile the code. I recommend compiling it into a jar bundle and then write a Shell Script to launch the jar. #!/bin/sh java -jar <compiled jar>.jar exit 0

The fglrx drivers allways have been a big problem. I'd recommend sticking with the open sources drivers...
