This will be fixed in install4j 8.0 in about 2 weeks (source: I work for the company who develops install4j). The main problem is that the WMClass property of AWT windows is set to the main class. This means that the main class must be unique for the application, but install4j inserts its own main class which up to 7.0 is always the same. As a workaround, ...

You didn't install the xubuntu desktop, instead xfce4 https://packages.ubuntu.com/disco/xfce4 which does include desktop-base https://packages.ubuntu.com/disco/desktop-base described as common files for the Debian Desktop which suggests gnome https://packages.ubuntu.com/disco/gnome Full GNOME Desktop Environment, with extra components so I'd check ...

Copy applications shortcut from /var/lib/snapd/desktop/applications/ to /usr/share/applications/ Example: sudo cp /var/lib/snapd/desktop/applications/brave_brave.desktop /usr/share/applications/ I had to do this on GalliumOS 3.0 (Xubuntu-based)

Use the Middle-Button on your mouse when you're clicking on the icon. This will open a new instance of that application in gnome. But I suggest you to make a shortcut for yourself for Terminal because you're going to put your hands on the keyboard anyway. I use Super + Enter since I use terminal too much! You can also change the /usr/share/applications/org....

Desktop files of snap packages can be found in /var/lib/snapd/desktop/applications/ and below /snap/.

I know I'm late to the party, but I have a faster solution than the one accepted as the answer: find / -iname "*desktop" -type f -not -path "/media*" -exec grep -il skrooge '{}' ';' 2> /dev/null It's faster because it doesn't search the data mounted file systems and most probably the desktop file is located in the system partition. Moreover, it's more ...

I have this same experience. When I right click (for example) the firefox icon on the launcher to open a new window, it sometimes causes the popup menu to freeze and my mouse is unable to click on anything. I reset it using the following... First, I have to Alt-Tab away to allow my mouse clicks to function. Then I click on the applications icon at the ...

Reloading works for me: Alt+F2, r, enter

[Edit: this workaround doesn't work for Snap packages, which is how the new chromium is installed] Ok I hacked around it by creating copies of the executable (had to be the /usr/lib/ executable and not the /usr/bin/ script): sudo ln /usr/lib/chromium-browser/chromium-browser /usr/lib/chromium-browser/chromium-browser-soundcloud sudo ln /usr/lib/chromium-...

Find the desktop launcher in one of these 2 locations: /usr/share/applications/ ~/.local/share/applications The Exec line is what is executed so ... grep Exec audacious.desktop (random example) would show Exec=audacious %U TryExec=audacious

I'm afraid XFCE doesn't have widget with this functionality. You have either a launcher or a switch widget here. But you can use software like Plank or something similar, to get what you want.

Or, you can change the drop-down from "Application in Terminal" to just "Application" - and before htop provide the full path to the wanted XXXX-terminal as this: "Name: /usr/bin/gnome-terminal -e htop" (consult with man-page or help of the needed terminal application about the correct option format). Even, maybe, with no change in the "Type" field ...

It seems to be hardcoded somewhere to use GNOME Terminal. The logic behind this seems to be the following: if GNOME Terminal is not found, then desktop-shortcut uses xterm as fallback. We can simulate GNOME Terminal installation on MATE by using a hack - create symlink to MATE Terminal executable: sudo ln -s /usr/bin/mate-terminal /usr/local/bin/gnome-...

This question is probably a duplicate of: capture stdout and stderr of all GUI programs? There are two answers there: Check the contents of ~/.xsession-errors log and, Redirect output when calling command: command >~/log/command.out.log 2>~/log/command.err.log Also if the process ID is known look at it's file descriptor 1 for stdout and 2 for ...

A socket is one endpoint of a bidirectional communication link. In your case both output streams write to one socket. You need two sockets in order to have "another end". Where does socket:[346100] go to? socket:[346100] is the socket itself. It is the process streams that go to the socket. How can I see the other end of the socket? To see the other ...

OP's main goal is to find out how applications launched via Desktop Entries aka .desktop files. There is no answer to this question, as it is implementation-dependent, and the specifications to which I've linked above provide no standard as to how the standard streams should be redirected if at all. For recent Ubuntu versions it is possible to find where ...

I solved this by adding classes to the desktop files: [Desktop Entry] Name=Firefox School Comment=Browse the World Wide Web Exec=firefox -P school -no-remote --class schoolProfile Terminal=false Type=Application StartupNotify=true Icon=/home/callum/Pictures/firefox-school.png StartupWMClass=schoolProfile [Desktop Entry] Name=Firefox Personal Comment=Browse ...

Just modified the .desktop file to point to the GitKraken icon in the installation folder, which is in the directory: /snap/gitkraken/current/usr/share/gitkraken/gitkraken.png The modified .desktop file is located at /var/lib/snapd/desktop/applications/gitkraken_gitkraken.desktop

You can gain an Applications Memu functionality by installing a Gnome Extension. The Applications Menu extension might be just the extension you are looking for. Make sure the Gnome Shell Integration browser add-on is installed: $ apt search chrome-gnome-shell Sorting... Done Full Text Search... Done chrome-gnome-shell/focal,focal,now 10.1-5 all [...

Well, the only folder where logs are written is normally /var/log. In your case, the information your looking for could be at different places, because the developer can choose different ones, or might have decided to write logs to his/her own place. It might be in /var/log/syslog - In syslog are all logs which derive from the system itself, but also ...

If you are using Gnome... Go to "Extensions". Look down the list for "Launch new instance". Set it to "ON". This affects more than the gnome-terminal window but I also find the behaviour of returning to the same terminal window extremely annoying. An alternative is to hit the context menu button in the currently open terminal window and hit "T" (or just "...

To make a launcher .desktop file autostart for all users, simply copy or link the .desktop file to /etc/xdg/autostart.Copying seems to bee a recommended practice since as you can see, all files under autostart directories are files. More info about xdg autostart: https://specifications.freedesktop.org/autostart-spec/0.5/ar01s02.html # sudo ln -s /usr/share/...

I don't know what is the correct way, but I found this simple solution: Run your desktop file from terminal As it opens, a launcher entry is shown Move this entry up or down and the launcher let you to put it there permanently

In previous versions of Ubuntu, the answer would have been easy: use gksudo in the "Exec=" line of the launcher. It would, before launching the actual program, provide a graphical dialog to enter the user's password. However, "gksudo" indiscriminately allowed a privileged user to run any graphical program as root, and this is now deprecated. It has been ...

In my case I found the answer at a GitHub thread. As j-o-d-o commented: Increasing max user watches resolved the issue: >> sudo sysctl fs.inotify.max_user_watches=16384 Was at 8192 originally

Note that Ubuntu 18.04 comes with GNOME 3 instead of Unity by default and hence it does not have the Unity Launcher which used to have the removable drive icons feature. Ubuntu 18.04 with GNOME comes with Ubuntu Dock instead, which is a fork of the Dash to Dock GNOME Shell extension. Icons for removable drives in the dock is actually a missing feature for ...

Linux maintains a .desktop file for each menu items. It stores all the desktop file at /usr/share/applications. You have to go there and verify whether there is a correct desktop file for netbeans or not. If not then you have to create one and put there. It can be of any name but its extension should be .desktop. A desktop file looks like this: [Desktop ...

Knowing a lot of people criticized Canonical for not being transparent to their source code, I did not even look into it before asking here. Yet, after posting this question, I decided to have a look at the source code: sudo apt source unity Installed the required dependencies for rebuilding the package from source: sudo apt build-dep unity And took a ...

There's been a few posts lately of launcher disappearing. Most likely everyone suffered from the same update which introduced a bug. When you boot your computer choose from the grub menu "Advanced options for Ubuntu". From the submenu select the next oldest kernel version that works. Other than that check these Q&As: Unity doesn't load, no Launcher,...

There is no direct way to attach a keyboard to launch the icons on your panel. However, you can create such shortcuts using "Keyboard Shortcuts" in the settings. From a practical user point of view, the effect will be the same. The only issue is that these shortcuts will not automatically update if you reposition a launcher on your panel - you will need to ...
