Today as I booted into my openSUSE box, for reasons unknown to me, my LVM partitions failed to mount. fsck didn’t help, and and LVM based container system meant that I couldn’t use the standard mount /dev/sdxx style of mounting as well. With my /home and / configured as a LVM, the root (/) partition was active, but the /home partition was not being mounted, as a result, X and KDM wouldn’t start, giving a console login. After a bit of digging around the man files, I found thw lvm manfile and started experimenting(remember, no net access too!) and found out how to mount the LVM’d partitions.
Consider this situation. You have multiple programs installed for a particular file type. Now double clicking it opens an application, but you want it to open in another application.
For example, you want your images to open in showFoto instead of Gwenview, so how do you go about doing this? Let me show you how to do so!
Recently, Adobe had released the beta version of Adobe Integrated Runtime, more commonly known as AIR, for Linux. While this is indeed good news, unfortunately it isn’t available via repositories, meaning you’ll have to download the binaries, set the permissions and install it by launching via command prompt. While this seems pretty complicated, its not really.
Let me show you how to go about installing Adobe AIR and AIR applications on your Linux box.
Most of the how-to’s and fixes posted here, are generally my experiences and I post them on how I went about fixing it. This particular how-to was mentioned to me by my very good friend, Bharath, who had this annoying problem of the title bars of every window crashing and disappearing when Emerald is chosen as the decorator.
Generally, I’d recommend running
gtk-window-decorator --replace or
metacity --replace in terminal - that generally does reinitialize the window decorators. However for Bharath, this particular solution didn’t help and he kept facing the same problem
