I have a fresh Arch install on my desktop using a Atheros AR9227 Wireless Card (its made by TP-LINK, I can't find the TP-LINK model number about).It's correctly detected. However, I have problems. On the LiveCD, which I think uses kernel 3.5.5 I get wifi working perfectly.
A week or so ago, after an update, my computer would hang up when booting. By using contro-alt-F1 I could get to tty1, then my desktop using startx, but the pane on the left was, and continues to be, missing. Since I had a mail icon on my desktop, I can read my mail okay and get on the Internet okay using a link in the email, and my desktop picture has not changed.
I have installed CentOS 6 in Virtualbox. Although I have chosen to install General Purpose GNOME Desktop, the GNOME desktop does not start. All I get is a black and white text prompt. I would like to know how I can install GNOME Desktop from the CentOS DVD.
How do I mount the DVD image?
How do I install GNOME desktop from command line?
I recently installed Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit. I also just got two sticks of 2G DDR 400Mhz ECC Reg. Ram for my computer (It requires ECC Reg for anything a Gig and Up) for a total of 6 Gigs. The motherboard is an H8DCE, if that helps.
Anyway, I installed the ram yesterday, and at first it would detect it all in the bios, but not in Ubuntu (Which only detected 4.8).
I want to write a script that will detect whether a particular desktop application is responding and kill it. Is this possible?
I know I've seen the GNOME desktop put up a "Application is not responding" dialog, and I figure it sends some sort of signal to the window and waits a certain amount of time for a response. If there's a way to do something like that, I'd appreciate some details.
I recently thought it would be a good idea to start hiding files and folders and encrypting things. All was going well until curiosity struck me. I wondered while I was staring at my Desktop and I was in my Desktop directory in the terminal looking at the files on my Desktop.
