I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 10.04 and things went pretty smooth. The only real issue is that I lost the transparency settings for the menu & indicator applets on my top knome panel. I simply don't remember how i did it last time, and i've been searching the net for an hour for a solution with no luck. Many results suggested the use of the Compiz Settings Manager's opacity settings, but that opacity applies to everything, including the text & icons. I thought i used the "gnome color chooser" package to do it last time, but I cannot find the option in the gui. how to make the background of the menu (applications/places/system) and indicator applet have transparent backgrounds while retaining full text/icon brightness?
So I just updated my IdeaPad to Natty and played around with Unity. The performane was absolutely unbearable so I installed Unity2D from the software center. Now when I start the session everything seems to be fine at first. Whenever I move the mouse over the panel though it seems to switch to my old gnome-panel from the "Classic" session (with some missing icons). When I move the mouse over that panel again it switches back to the Unity panel style. What is going on? Can I fix this somehow? I will have to use the classic session until I get a working consistent behavior
Regarding the gnome-panel in Ubuntu (64 bit).... I discovered some time ago that I wasn't the only one who routinely (every login) had their gnome-panel appear butchered, for which Alt-F2 then 'killall gnome-panel' would easily fix.
Having become impatient with this over the past 8 months, I decided I would automate the process and so cofiguring the startup applications seemed like a perfectly logical choice to me. Turns out I was wrong. After adding 'killall gnome-panel' to the startup applications not only does the panel fail to load altogether now, but Alt-F2 doesn't even work.
I tried Ctl-Alt-F1 and working with the graphics-free mode thinking I could somehow navigate to the startup apps config file and edit it, but I don't know where it is or how to edit it without logging in as root and I certainly don't know of any 'root password'.
I am trying to get rid of the gnome panel shadow in ubuntu 11.04(classic, not using unity). I know that I can get rid of it using compiz but I do not want to use that. I suppose my question would be, where is the "panel-shadow.png" file located that I can edit and make transparent? I found it before but cannot for the life of me now.
I recently installed F11 and customised the gnome panel with various custom application launchers. After the latest upgrade all my custom launchers have disappeared, the only ones left are firefox and thunderbird.
Just upgraded my FC12 to 13 using preupgrade.On booting up into 13 my panel at the top of the screen that normally holds the menus/system tray etc doesn't seem to have initialised. It's just not there.I had a message about "no system tray detected on this system" which I assume is from one of the applications trying to start up in the systray.I've not found anything obvious in the logs, but then I may not be looking in the right places.
After a fresh install of Fedora 12 I'm delivered to the image on the attachment. Well aside from not being able to see icons on the left, or go to the any terminal and not seeing anything and be forced to blind type and hope for the best there are some other issues. Enabling panel transparency shows video artefacts on the panel.nouveau doesn't enable 3D(I use a NVidia GeForce 9600 GT 512MB and my monitor is a ACER LCD X223W)) kind and point me to resources about the nouveau driver and how to configure it so it starts to work?
I am using fedora 12 x86_64 gnome. if i turn on panel transparency, whole panel becomes distorted, same thing happens if i choose a panel background.The problem was not there at the time of installation as i once tried it but after updates and all this glitch has appeared. I have experimental ati drivers installed. Is this a recognised bug with panel or drivers.
how to update my GNOME desktop panel? In fact somehow I managed to lose my notification Applet (system tray) because of which I am unable find volume control, network status etc... I hope updating the GNOME can help to resolve my problem on notification area applet. If I can get back the notification area I will be really greatful
This seems like it should be simple to do. I have a fresh F13 install running Gnome, and the gnome panel is on the left-hand side of the monitor. I want it on the righthand side. So far I have been unable to achieve this. I can't drag the panel (even with ALT held down), and if I try to set orientation to "Right" it changes back the "Left" again
I've managed to ALT-RIGHT-click-add some launchers to the top gnome-panel. When i now click on a launcher the gnome-panel crashes(?) and reappeares, but the program starts without problems. If i do this two times in a row (1 sec diff or so) the gnome-crash screen appears and i've got to log out although all the programs are still running without any problems.
dmesg shows this: [14460.034820] gnome-panel: segfault at 18 ip 0000003810fc05df sp 00007fffcaae4c30 error 4 in libgtk-3.so.0.0.10[3810e00000+3fb000]

Anyone have any idea as to what would cause the time in the gnome panel to stop? This is an epic failure... I would have been late to work today if it weren't for the coffee pot. I've had so many issues with gnome's panels I'm considering switching Desktop environments.
Today morning i accidentally deleted the top gnome panel. I created a new one which was just an inch wider. But i am not able to change any of the properties of the panel except position. It says some of the properties are locked down. I have gnome-panel installed already in my system. How do i enable these locked properties.
I created a new panel in Gnome (Fedora 12) and it wasn't showing up right. So I just told it to make another (with the same results), and finally one more. So with the two that are there by default, that's 5 total panels... None of the newly created panels where displaying at all. But after creating the last one the system froze up. Now when I try to boot into fedora my system locks up as it's trying to load GNOME...
Is there any way for me to remove those panels through BASH? So I can just boot to a prompt and get them removed. After that I imagine GNOME will load correctly again...
I would like to run Conky on my Gnome desktop, I've configured a .conkyrc and it works quite nicely if I launch it in a terminal. However .... if I set it to run as a startup application (by using /usr/bin/conky &), 2 unexpected things happen.1. Conky doesn't load2. My gnome-panel doesn't appearHowever, gnome-panel is running, as I am unable to launch another one.
When I activate Compiz through the Desktop Effects settings, the top one or two pixels of the top Gnome panel don't respond to mouse clicks. Is this a bug, or do I have to adjust some CompizConfig setting?
