Debian Multimedia :: I3 - Iceweasel Does Not Apply Gtk-theme On Login

May 1, 2015

After logging in to i3 i launch an instance of iceweasel via

Code: Select allexec --no-startup-id i3-msg 'workspace 2; exec /usr/bin/iceweasel

This instance of iceweasel only applies half of the gtk-theme, which i set via the mate-control-center.

The main problem is that the text in the right-click menu and on inactive tabs has the wrong colour (dark text on dark background)

When closing this instance of iceweasel and opening another one, the gtk-theme is correctly applied.

Installed gtk-theme-switch and set the theme there, now it works as expected

Debian Multimedia :: Qpdfview Appears With Generic Theme Instead Of Gtk Theme

Jul 5, 2015

Since I updated my system a couple of days ago, qpdfview uses a generic theme instead of the Gtk theme. Apparently by adding

Code: Select allexport QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=gtk.

to /etc/profile all QT5 apps should use the gtk theme but for some reason this doesn't seem to work.

Adding -style=gtk to the launcher options works but I want to change the theme setting for all QT5 apps.

Debian Multimedia :: Dark Theme Vs Light Theme

Aug 4, 2011

I enjoy using vim from lxterminal with the black background, as well as awesome with its dark theme. I configured xfe manually to be darkish, and i use darklooks as a GTK theme to suit it as well. I could say all my desktop looks pretty dark, which my eyes thank me for. I also use redshift.But problems come along when surfing the web. Most web pages (including this one) have very bright styles. They are not the problem themselves, but switching from my windows hurts my eyes since it's a quick change to a much brighter screen.What would you do, either:

1. Use everything with a brighter background and putting the screen brightness a bit lower. (changing the GTK theme to clearlooks, using lxterminal with a white background, etc.)

2. Use some color theme with uzbl so that pages would look much darker. (like when you set manually the text and background colors in Firefox/Iceweasel)

I would myself go with the second one if most pages wouldn't look that bad when modified that way. For example, many pages use non-transparent images with white backgrounds on white pages, so if you change the background to black not only it looks horrible but it too is a mess.

OpenSUSE Install :: KDM: Cannot Apply New Theme On Kde4.4?

Feb 23, 2011

I installed suse kde 4.4 on a new machine using a cd made with suse studio.

I decided to change the login theme. I went into the login manager, downloaded, selected, and applied a new theme. Restarted. Nothing changed. I still had the same old theme pre-installed via suse studio.

I thought it could be a bug with that particular theme. So I downloaded another theme through the login manager. I selected it, and clicked apply. Restarted.... nothing changed...still the old theme.

I thoroughly searched every option in login manager, thinking that I missed a simple setting. Tried everything I could think of. Still same old theme.

So... I decided to delete the theme pre-installed via suse-studio using login manager. Went to the login screen. It changed! But it wasn't the theme I applied. It was a simple theme-less login screen.

Went back to the login manager. I can change the background pic manually, but I can't install any theme!

Ubuntu :: Apply Windows 7 Theme Files?

Jul 19, 2010

My wife doesn't like gnome so I said I could make the desktop look like Windows 7. I've downloaded the theme pack but I can't find any instructions on how to apply it.

I downloaded it from here:

I'm guessing it a Emerald theme, but I don't know what to do with the files.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Ubuntu :: Apply Cursor Theme In All Gnome And KDE Apps?

Debian Multimedia :: Inkscape Can't Apply Some Font Cuts

Jul 15, 2015

I use the default Inkscape 0.48.5 r10040 on the default 32 bit Debian Jessie with Gnome 3.14.1 and since I installed it I can't apply some font cuts which actually do work in other applications and did work on previous versions of Debian/Inkscape.

The cuts do show up as options in the "font/style" selection menu and i can use different versions from for example "Roboto" but if I - for example - select to use the "Semi-Light" variant of Roboto it just doesn't get applied after all. (I know that many fonts do not have any font variations and Inkscape confusingly just shows at least "italic" and "bold" as options in the style list anyway.) In this case the font variant is actually there, I can use the same font variants in Gimp and I was able to use it in previous versions of Debian/Inkscape, but not now.But I noticed instabilities in Gimp, Inkscape and Scribus lately. Gimp just consistatly vanishes when I try to scroll through the font selection menu and Scribus takes ages to load and does crush from time to time without any clear pattern to me. I don't think this is caused by Roboto itself since I used it in the past without such problems.

Should I remove all custom fonts and try if everything works ok again or does this approach sound rather foolish to you? Unfortunately I need most of the additional fonts I installed for different projects and I had them on my system in the past also without having such issues. I could however remove all custom fonts and include only those absolutely needed one by one ...

Debian Multimedia :: How Does Iceweasel Keep Itself Up To Date

Jan 4, 2015

I have been a casual Debian Wheezy user for quite some time now. And one of the things that alarms me is that how does Iceweasel keep itself up to date on the latest secuirty patches ? I also use Windows on my desktop and it is dual booted with Linux. In Windows I use Nightly build of FireFox. They update themselves almost everyday. Normal Firefox also seems to update pretty often. But Iceweasel only updates if I do an aptitude full-upgrade

And that is also once a month. So how is Iceweasel expected to be secure if there is such a long delay in the patches ? Iceweasel also does'nt have a "Check for updates" options like Firefox.

Won't we be better off using the normal Firefox on Debian distributions ? IMO that gives faster patches for security issues.

Also does Iceweasel use Flash Player or gnash ? Because running dpkg gives me the following output-:

Code: Select allsreyan@debian:/usr/share/dict$ dpkg -s gnash
dpkg-query: package 'gnash' is not installed and no information is available
Use dpkg --info (= dpkg-deb --info) to examine archive files,
and dpkg --contents (= dpkg-deb --contents) to list their contents.

Flash Player also has individual updates in Windows which is maybe once every 2 weeks. I also don't see that in Debian. Flash players need to be kept up to date since they are responsible for most security breaches.

I had started a thread some time ago where a user commented that Iceweasel was out of date and needed to be replaced by Firefox. [URL] .....

So why is the Debian community still sticking to Iceweasel ? Why not switch to Firefox like Ubuntu ?

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel Uses CPU Obnoxiously

Apr 14, 2015

Iceweasel uses to much computing resources without reason.

In my desktop, where I keep some system monitoring tools at close view, I could notice Iceweasel extensively using system resources, but of course memory is expected from whatever is being loaded on the webs, cpu however, it kept a steady 18% on my 6 core AMD FX6300, this is enough to keep the processor's temperature a whole ~20℃ above idle.

Since then, I've installed a proper watercooler to keep temps reasonable in this hot CPU. But still, that’s too much processing required for webbrowsing alone, and this is not considering heavier stuff like flash, youtube and etc.

Compared to KDE's proposed browser konqueror, and an new alternative Qupzilla, they're much lighter and consequently much faster.

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel And Youtube - Why Only 720p

May 21, 2015

System: Debian 8 - Graphics: AMD Radeon R9 280X Free Driver

With Iceweasel, when I watch HTML5 Youtube videos, I only have the quality 720p as the highest.

In the same machine, Windows 8.1, I can watch in 1080p in Internet Explorer.

I guess that it's not a problem of Iceweasel but about how Youtube serves the videos to my system. Is that correct?

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel Locking Up Computer

Mar 12, 2016

I'm running iceweasel 44.0.2 on debian stretch w/ xfce. I'm suddenly having a problem with iceweasel freezing and subsequently freezing my desktop. It can be fixed by deleting the .mozilla file (cache?). When iceweasel starts freezing up, the other browsers (both chromium and chrome) freeze up as well. I honestly don't even know how to start to address what is going on.

Debian Multimedia :: God-awful Fonts In Iceweasel

Jun 5, 2010

My iceweasel version iceweasel:

Here are two screenshot of a Wikipedia page (modified via readability). My serif font is Liberation Serif.

Here is the same font in Open Office Writer

And here it is in KWrite

To me, the last two look all right-- at least all the lower case glyphs are the same height. So why does the font look so terrible in iceweasel?

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel Bookmarks Disappeared?

I noticed that the "Bookmarks" menu in Iceweasel was totally empty. I quit IW and started it again, and the problem persisted. I disabled all my addons, restarted again, and they were still gone. I tried to restore them (the backup copies are stored as JSON files in ~/.mozilla) from Bookmarks -> Organize -> Import -> Restore, but I got "unable to process the backup file" for each of the backups.

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel And KDE Leave Crashes X

Feb 25, 2011

I installed Squeeze on an eeepc 900.Everything seems to work well, except for one thing: iceweasel, when drawing certain windows, likes to crash the entire KDE session. This is 100% replicable simply by right-clicking on a bookmark put on the bookmarks menu toolbar, and trying to go to "properites" on that item. It only does this, however, on my wife's eeepc 900, it does not happen on my 900A (different gpu and cpu though...). the two systems have the same packages installed.

The most frustrating thing is that there is no error output whatsoever. I have looked through all the logs in /var/log, and I couldn't find anything. I have run iceweasel from the command line and redirected its output to a file, but the whole system hard-locked, and when I rebooted, there was no log file. I have started X using "startx" instead of using kdm, and I cannot see any output to the VT that kicked it off because the system hard-locks.

As far as I can see, it only happens in iceweasel. If I disable compositing, it becomes stable again -- but I don't want to have to do this, as it interferes with features she is accustomed to.Oh yes, I should also add that this netbook worked fine under eeebuntu and compiz -- never an issue.

Debian Multimedia :: Minor Scrolling With Iceweasel-4

Apr 14, 2011

I've had some minor scrolling issues with iceweasel-4 which mostly did not draw my attention until yesterday when scrolling this page : [URK]. Scrolling was choppy.....


Some others things I've noticed : running iceweasel-4 in virtualbox ( minimal gnome installation Sid ) , running iceweasel-4 in virtualbox ( minimal KDE installation Squeeze with gnome-themes added to be sure ) did not have these scrolling issues.....( so is nvidia to be blamed ? ) I was about to remove the nvidia driver ( from ) and replace it with nvidia driver from Debian when I tried just one more step: Added deb [URL] unstable main to sources.list and upgraded libcairo2 from version 1.10.2-1.1~bpo60+1 ( squeeze-backports ) to version 1.10.2-6.1

Ubuntu :: Current Theme Defaults To Silver Theme For No Reason Randomly On Login

May 4, 2011

For some reason, from time to time on login, as my normal theme starts to load, it changes to some sort of silver theme (a very basic one), and I am unable to change it over to any other theme. Checking the theme being used, it still says my desired one is set, but it is not. Also, no matter what theme I change it to, that basic silver theme is the one being used. This includes a default icon theme, not the one I prefer.

The only option that seems to fix things is a restart, and the hope that on this login it won't mess up like before.I am using Natty, from a fresh install, with Ubuntu Classic as my desktop, and have reinstalled things more than once to try and fix a few of the Natty-related issues, but this one keeps coming back.

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel Won't Install On Wheezy 7.8 Sparc

Jan 18, 2015

So the other day I installed Debian Wheezy on my Sun Blade 150. While the OS is installed fine, all the webkit based browsers continuously crash after a few pages. So, I tried to download IceWeasel since it wasn't installed when I tried installing Debain off the DVD. The only problem is, it won't install as the Xulrunner version it requests is xulrunner-24.0_24.5.0esr-1~deb7u1_sparc, however the only version available on the repositories is newer. Is there any way to get the older xulrunner version, or is there going to be a fix for IceWeasel soon on Sparc?
