<SOLVED>GParted wont start and a. It about keyboards
« on: March 03, 2014, 09:00:02 pm »
Hi, me again,

I've just reinstalled sparky, and set all my old stuff up(menu is working fine now) but now GParted refuses to start, from the application menu, start menu, and from file browser, I click on it and nothing happens. As far as I can tell everything else works fine. I've tried apt-get update and upgrade but still no luck, I'm thinking of reinstalling it, but when I go to delete it it wants to delete a sparky-openbox-manager as well(or similar, it was a little while ago) which sound pretty important to me, is it safe to delete this? Or should I try something else first?

Try to run it in a terminal emulator with the command:

Code:

su
gparted


If it will start up, edit as root the file:

Code:

su
leafpad /usr/share/applications/gparted.desktop


Change the line from:

Code:

Exec=gparted-pkexec


to:

Code:

Exec=remsu gparted


Save the file, log out and log in back.

Don't worry about that.



You'd like to find your keyboard model/number or layout?

To check its layout, type:

Code:

cat /etc/default/keyboard

I need the layout of the actual keyboard, because it sure isn't what the computer thinks it is. It's Italian I think, includes various letters with accents and the punctuation is all in the wrong place.

To change the layout keyboard run SparkyCenter-> System-> Keyboard Layout Settings and set yours up.

It looks like normal keyboard so try to configure with "standard pc-105-keys Intl" and your language after.

If does it not work, try HP keyboards, there is a few options, but pc-105 should be fine I hope.

Ok, thank you ever so much, there are just so many options and I had no idea what half of them mean.
