Re: Different Volume in Each App

Sorry, I guess I have two different problems that may or may not be related. First one is that that applications seem to have drastically different volume settings for the same audible sound level. For example, Banshee needs to be at about 5%-10% to not be unbearably loud, but MPlayer needs to be at...

Different Volume in Each App

I recently changed my hardware from an AMD CPU and NVidia GPU to all Intel and updated to the latest Update Pack. I'm using MATE and having weird problems with the volume controls. To get a reasonable volume for everything I have to have the volume in Banshee turned all the way down and in MPlayer t...

Re: How manually reset user's cinnamon settings?

Create a new user, log in to that user, copy your data files from the old user then delete it. Could you be more specific? I have LOTS of settings for programs in my home folder that I'm not willing to lose. I made a guest account and cinnamon works fine for it, but my main account gives a fatal er...

What do you wish to install that is so difficult to do now? I mean, synaptic works great for the majority of things I user could dream of installing. And along with the add/remove version in the program menu, which is even easier to use and shows popularity, I don't see what is so hard. Automatix an...

Very cool. Thanks. Here are the three automatix gave me, that work fine for me. Just create a file with the name given and paste in the code, and obviously, make them executable and move them into the nautilus-scripts folder. gedit-root #!/bin/bash #created by arnieboy foo=`gksudo -u root -k -m "ent...

It would probably be easier if you yourself simply remove gnome-screensaver and install xscreensaver with apt-get or synaptic instead of demanding the entire distro go down your path because you don't like gnome-screensaver. I can't believe you actually asked them to rebuild gnome with your pet fav...

I found this page that tells you most of what you could want to know about it: http://g-scripts.sourceforge.net/index.php But the idea is, any script you put in ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts, will show up in the right click menu under scripts. I have a copy of the three main scripts I use, which are ge...

Nautilus Scripts

Automatix installs some nautilus scripts so in the right-click context menu you can open the folder as root and open a file in gedit as root. I think these are awesome, as you don't have to go into terminal to change permissions or move system files or edit a config file. It would be nice to have th...

If you just want more repositories, add them to your sources.list file, or if you like GUI, then use synaptic to add them. You can use pretty much any Debian repositories you like, though some do need a key.

That is my point, it use to be the default screensaver gnome used. And it was integrated the same that gnome-screensaver is now. But gnome switched it and all the additional features went with it. So my hope was that you would be compiling gnome source to make the distro and it could therefore be in...

This was in dapper and previous releases, I thought it was ok, maybe it is a good starting point. There are apps out there like you are describing.

Can someone at least explain why this is an unreasonable request instead of just ignoring me? Does no one here remember having a normal working screensaver, and not just this "defaults only" one? AFAIK there is no good way for me to change this myself, but it shouldn't be a big issue at the source l...

Please switch to Xscreensaver!

Gnome switched to gnome-screensaver a while back, and if you have ever used xscreensaver, you'll see why this sucks. They are similar, but xscreensaver lets you adjust which screensavers you want and all the settings. Since it is integrated into gnome, the end-user can't do much about this. So can y...
