I use XBMC as my main TV viewing platform.
However XBMC addons store passwords in plain text, including for Youtube, your Google password!
So I want to run XBMC as it's own user with its own...
What you see is what I get I'm afriad.
However, I ran the update again last night and this time it worked.
I'm also going to look into why so much of KDE is installed on my system.
Not in many weeks.
I'm not sure how this is relevant, I'm not trying to add a PPA, nor have I added one recently.
Thanks, rather long so I put here
I thought my APT Sources might be relevant...
My system says it needs to update.
When I run the update it barfs saying "Requires installation of untrusted packages"
I also noticed when looking at what its "updating" that its actually...
OK been looking at that quite extensively, however have yet to find out how to do it successfully.
Basically it needs to run for all users, after X has loaded but before they login, and ideally...
Ok, but how did you do this? How did you tell Xubuntu to span multiple monitors?
Doesn't survive a reboot
RandR seems to have totally screwed up my mouse location and its just about impossible to click on anything after a reboot
Why is multi head so...
OK, solved it for VirtualBox by entering this into a terminal
sudo apt-get install arandr
xrandr --output VBOX0 --auto --output VBOX1 --auto --left-of VBOX0 --output VBOX2 --auto --left-of...
Ok here is what I see
That's my real 3 screens on an existing 11.10 XUbuntu install. With 2 virtual screens on the far left and...
Bare metal I always go with Nvidia.
No, since I can find no such option. It knows I have three monitors, shows me them in the monitor configuration thing, but show me them is all it...
From where I stand right now, the problem on bare metal vs VirtualBox seems identical.
And it seems I am doomed yet again to hours of fiddling with Xconf while everyone assures me its not needed....
Oh my, every single time a new release of Ubuntu comes out I have the same problem.
I can't make it work on multiple monitors without hours and hours and hours of messing around.
So this time I...
setxkbmap -option terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp
Is there anyway to stop my login to this forum via LaunchPad from timing out?
It drives me crazy.
So this was going to be fixed, was it ever fixed? And if so, how do I make the fix work in 11.10
Title says it all, how do I enable Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to restart X in XFCE?
I'd say XFCE was much closer to Gnome2, I've migrated and I'm really happy with it.
Hmmm, thanks for that.
The suggested work arounds are...not very helpful to say the least.
I also want to know why when the job is run manually it works great, but fails when cron runs it.
Right, so the sbackup log says
(process:25941): GConf-WARNING **: Client failed to connect to the D-BUS daemon:
Unable to autolaunch a dbus-daemon without a $DISPLAY for X11
Yeah have done some more digging, I tracked down sbackup's own logs and found it reports two problems
1) It can't talk to DBus
2) It can't mount a volume it seems it wants
At the moment I'm...
Default install from Xbuntu ISO.
Am running XFCE desktop though, not Xbuntu as Xbuntu desktop really doesn't like my 3 monitor setup, but XFCE is fine with it.
The installation is only a few...
