However, if you wish to remove the balloons (and it will remove ALL balloons) just open a terminal and type the following:

sudo chmod -x /usr/lib/notification-daemon/notification-daemon
pkill notification-daemon

and to re-enable:

sudo chmod +x /usr/lib/notification-daemon/notification-daemon
pkill notification-daemon

Yeah this 'connection established...' balloon is really annoying! But otherwise I think the balloon after a succesfull print job is not so bad.....  so since you can't just disable the connection-balloon.... is there a way to set transparency for all of them? A transparency about 60% would be good... so there wouldn't be too much messing around with the system and the balloons would be undisturbing...

cool thanks for this one - works good smilewink

But still would be good if there was a way for starting also programs that don't have an option like this in their menu.... (e.g. Thunderbird)

Ok, another newbie question :-)

searching for a solution I just found this: Autostart Claws Mail in tray

But since not every program has a standard tray icon I don't think this solution is "universal". To be specific I want to autostart pidgin and maybe also thunderbird in the tint2 traybar. Is this possible somehow??

Thanks :-)

Hi @all

I am searching for a while now and couldn't find it anywhere.... how can you change the system sounds in #! ?
Espacially the damn loud startup sound.... it's not that it ain't cool but when I turn on my notebook in university class then all the heads turn on me when this comes.... this is only cool the first time.... :-)

thanks in advance!

I've set up the menu all again now....

so ~/.config/openbox/menu.xml is completely empty ?
strange, and you hadn't modified it since it pc was last turned on?

yeah completely empty now.....
I was modifying it (putting a new item - link to thunderbird).... but I think I shut down the notebook without saving it.....
could this caused that everything is gone???

If your menu.xml = 0 bites and you have no backup, I'm afraid not.

sad so I think in this case mounting my home partition using a live cd won't do anything...... ?!?!

#8 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Big Problem: menu.xml suddenly empty » 2009-10-17 11:07:32

I found the spare, thanks for that.
But yes I made many changes to my old menu.xml......
and i said - suddenly completely empty. It was everything allright when i turned it off...... the size is now on 0 bytes!
Can't imagine anything that could have caused this..... :-(

#9 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Big Problem: menu.xml suddenly empty » 2009-10-17 10:44:54

so you mean there's no way to get my old menu back?? i have to startup with the original menu.xml do all my changes again ?? :-(

isn't there any system recovery option in linux/ubuntu/openbox ?

Hi guys,

I just don't know how this happened. Yesterday evening I shutdown my #! Notebook, everything was ok.
Two hours later I turned it on again it this message appeared:

Now my right click only shows the following items:
Terminal Emulator
Web Browser

Is there anything like the system recovery console in winxp?? Or any other way to get my menu back??
Appreciate every help!!

Thanks in advance.

Does anyone have an idea how I can wether start the sudo command in autostart or change the permissions that it can run without 'sudo'.

Super! Works also for me very good, thanks!
But I have to start it as sudo user. The same for you?? Because of this I cannot write it in
Do you start it in autostart or by hand every time?

The other thing: I've written some shell scripts and put it in Desktop. It is visible in there, ok!
But I cannot start them within the screenlet. Also links to programs don't start from inside there.....

yeah, but there are so many screenlets/desklets you can find everywhere..... so I think there is for nearly every wish a proper one. Well unless you want something special..... like I do :( I only want to use the folderview. I know from the kde desk and it's really cool...... And the screenlet version is the only one I know for non-kde desktops.

Thanks, I already had it as an executable...... it still doesn't work :-(
I don't really like to install compiz, because it's too heavy.....
I thought it would be enough to activate the simple composite manager that comes with #! to use screenlets.... :-/

Hi, another strange problem:
      Somehow when I copy usual text-files from #! to an ntfs partition it becomes an executable.
      I did the same on another notepad with ubuntu jaunty installed and it works like it I don't know what the problem here is.....
      It's not matter if I do the copy in pcmanfm or in terminal/mc..... always same effect. Copying images works good!

      Any idea??

Thanks in advance! :-)

#16 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Start screenlets in Crunchbang ??? » 2009-10-06 09:26:10

thank you for your reply. Yeah I also have conky, as it gets installed by default.
But I just want to use the folderview screenlet … ent=102890
I don't think there is anything like this for conky..... so I think I have to get screenlets running :-/

Ok, got sending from phone working. I installed the package "obexpushd" and added it to the autostart script (on its own line)

Nice, thanks! Works for me too! The only thing is: How can I set the default place where the received files get pushed in?? I want the files to be saved on Desktop, so I wrote in /home/<User>/Desktop/obexpushd

But it still saves all files in root.

Any idea??

can anybody tell me how to start screenlets in #! ??

I enabled compositing: Menu->Prefrences->Compositing->Enable Compositing
and installed screenlets via synaptic. Starting the screenlet-manager in terminal works, but does not start any of the screenlets.....
Installing a new screenlet in the manager also works.
But starting with

Any idea?? Appreciat :-)

Hi, I am very new to crunchbang, installed it just today and I really like it.... especially the speed!!
Now I also like Nautilus - although I know that's against the philosophy of #!

Anyway I did the changes you mentioned in the But when I then reboot and start Nautilus it gives a...... let's say "very minimal nautilus". Please see the screenshot:
Any idea how I can get the normal Nautilus screen without letting it control all my desktop and stuff??
