  1. [all variants] Re: Tell what user is being logged in from /usr/share/xsessions?

    Oh, cool; I somehow didn't come across that. That answers literally all of my questions. Thanks!
  2. [all variants] Tell what user is being logged in from /usr/share/xsessions?

    I want to have a setup so that each user can have a custom user-specific pre-login script. What I have so far:

    /usr/loca/bin/session-wrapper.sh - a script which looks in the current user's home...
  3. [all variants] Re: Changing UID breaks GUI functions - suggestions?

    Unfortunately, this didn't work. I'll keep the config because it seems like a good idea given my new uid and gid, but it didn't help anything. Thanks for the advice, though.
  4. [all variants] Re: Changing UID breaks GUI functions - suggestions?

    I used (from a root shell, so I wasn't logged in):
    usermod -u 501 myusername

    It still doesn't mind me being logged in - I have permissions to edit files and whatnot. You'd think if that were the...
  5. [all variants] Changing UID breaks GUI functions - suggestions?

    I'm dual-booting on a MBP, and I've changed my uid to 501 to be cross-compatible with my Mac OS and filesystem (so I can access my user's files on the mac partition).

    Problem is, a few things are...

    [all variants] Install "Typeset" command

    I have a BIOS update that I need to perform on an Ubuntu server. The update (dell) is a .bin meant for Red Hat, and it uses the typeset command to set environment variables. However, the shell I'm...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Launcher icon defaults when in unity sidebar

    Do you happen to know why that step in particular? And why did it work when I removed it from the sidebar, moved the launcher to applications folder, and added it back?
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Launcher icon defaults when in unity sidebar

    GOT IT TO WORK. ...have no idea why. Here's what I did (not sure which steps are the key ones, though):
    Created launcher on the desktop and selected the icon while the launcher was still on the...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Launcher icon defaults when in unity sidebar

    Wait, when you say add the icon to the launcher itself, what do you mean? The way I do it is open the preferences for the launcher, click on the icon (which brings you to a file select dialogue) and...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Launcher icon defaults when in unity sidebar

    I tried that and it didn't work. Where did you put the logo that the launcher used as its icon?
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Launcher icon defaults when in unity sidebar

    What I do is keep a "Launchers" folder (I put mine in ~/.local/share/). I'm not in Ubuntu at the moment, but when I go back I'll try adding it from the desktop and seeing if that works.
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Launcher icon defaults when in unity sidebar

    The really weird thing, though, is that it worked with another program that wasn't one of mine. It also worked with a launcher for another program (also not written by me). In fact, it even worked...
  13. [ubuntu] Launcher icon defaults when in unity sidebar

    So I made a launcher for a script that I use frequently, and I gave the launcher an Icon. However, when I dragged the launcher to the sidebar, the icon defaulted to the little springy platform. Is...

    [SOLVED] HOWTO: Rhythmbox library across partitions

    Say you're dual-booting, and Ubuntu is a secondary partition. You've got music on your other partition (perhaps Mac or Windows) that you'd like to have access to in Ubuntu. Besides the permissions...

    [SOLVED] Rhythmbox Library in Dual-Boot

    If you've got a dual-boot environment, chances are your main music library is stored on your non-Ubuntu partition. Of course, you could import your music to Rhythmbox, but this forces you to...

    [ubuntu] Access Mac partition files from Ubuntu

    I'm dual-booting Mac OS X 10.6 (soon to be 10.7 :D), and I'd like to access files on my Mac partition from my Ubuntu system. I intentionally set the same username and password for my Ubuntu system...

    [ubuntu] Re: Macbook pro boots to blinking cursor

    Nevermind. Reinstalling as an upgrade (as if I were upgrading from an older OS) did the trick, although I have no idea why. W/e; it works, and I may never know why it didn't before.
  18. [ubuntu] Re: Macbook pro 5,3 boots to cursor, no grub

    Never mind. For some reason re-installing as an update (as if I were updating an older OS version) fixed it. No idea why it works now or didn't before, but I'm not asking questions.

    [ubuntu] Re: 11.04 install from CD: blinking cursor

    Pressing the Escape key during the initial purple screen (displayed right after the ISOLINUX line is displayed) will bring you to the boot menu used in older versions of Ubuntu Live CDs (I think the...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: Macbook pro 5,3 boots to cursor, no grub

    New Idea - use LiveCD's grub to boot local partition's command prompt? Can't figure out how to get this working - shift doesn't work and hitting escape at the purple screen doesn't give me the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Macbook pro boots to blinking cursor

    So that worked for booting. It booted fine (although the GUI was an older version like this - http://nanangsyaifudin.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/ubuntu.jpg). It installed properly, but now the...
