Keybindings

Hi
I'm having a funny issue here.
I'm trying to move Windows Across my Different Workspaces.
I would usually use Ctrl+Alt+Shift then either Left or Right or Up or
Down.

It doesn't seem to be working.

I already checked out gconf and the entries are there ,
Ctrl+Alt Left Right Up Down works Fine.

Any Ideas ?

Karl

Not bad at all. (http://www.burtonini.com/blog/computers/devilspie)

It does not start the program minimized, but rather minimizes the window
once it is open. That aside, problem solved.

Thanks.

Tooltips

I'm trying to add an icon of the removeable media sources I have, to my 
desktop.  I would like the same functionality the icons have within the 
Computer folder, already on the desktop ie when mounted the icon 
changes.  And I would like to add a tooltip to the volume icon I have 
just described.  Is this possible and how would I go about doing this?

Removing the "delete panel" option from top panel's menu

I'm using SPARC Solaris 8 Sun's GNOME distribution.
We've had several novice users who have accidentally selected the
"Delete This Panel..." option on the top panel.  This leaves them in a state
where , as far as I can tell, they have to start over from scratch,
deleting all their gnome preference files, to regain a top panel.
There is no "new panel -> top panel" option on the menus in this
version of gnome.

Since the company is comitted to continuing using Sun's implementation
of GNOME, I was wondering where there was anything I could do to disable,
for all users, the ability to remove that option from that one type of
panel - so that the top panel no longer had the "delete this panel"
menu selection.

Umbrello

Hi list

I know this is a question better directed at th umbrello mailing list,
but I am having trouble reaching them, and to be honest, I am not sure
if my problem is as a result of my stupidity wrt umbrello or my
stupidity wrt gnome (or both ;)).

I am trying to get umbrello to run within Gnome on SUSE 9.3. I have run
configure, make and make install successfully. As far as I can tell the
various bits should have been stored in /opt/kde3 and that I just need
to link to the Umbrello executable in Gnome to get it to work However, I
cannot find the umbrello executable anywhere.

Does anybody have any experience wrt umbrello and gnome?

Regards

Never heard of it.

Probably not if you just ran configure. 

You can try looking for the binary: 

find / -name "*umbrello*"

..or you can save the output of make install: 

make install 2>&1|tee install.log

..or you can use inotify to see which part of the filesystem was
affected by the install target.

There is also the lpm tool which runs across the filesystem to see
which files where recently written to.

Of course, there is also the source code and Makefile you can
inspect;).

GNOME screensaver 4.05 question

I'm on sparc solaris 8 with Sun's GNOME/metacity.  The screensaver
that comes up says that it is version 4.05 .

When I enter the "slidescreen" screen saver properties, select
slidescreen, and then hit preview, I get xscreensaver errors,
saying that the child processes died with a code of 1.

The weird thing is that I don't see slidescreen on my sparc solaris 8
system.  I am uncertain where I might find it. Anyone else out there
using Sun's GNOME environment and who can point me where to find
slidescreen, so I can try to debug this problem?
