General :: Application Menu / Administration And Preferences Menu Not Visible
Oct 27, 2010
i am having a problem on Ubuntu 10.10. In system menu, there is no Administration or Preferences menu.Also, application menu does not show anything. I am using Ubuntu since 2 weeks and still not used to to the terminal commands for running applications and admin tools.
one more thing.When i booted my PC today it reported an error and process terminated before reaching the login window. So i restarted and chose recovery mode. it also reported some errors and tried to fix the problem. it deleted some files i think. and my system is working again but with above mentioned problem.
Iam pretty new to Linux.I installed fedora 10 on my pc recently.I wanted to add a program to the startup menu but I cant find Preferences menu in the Settings menu. Iam writing to this form after a lot of googling.Hope I can find some answer here
I want to install Eclips program from "Add/Remove Application" in Administration menu!I see this message and I click on 'Enable' button and I am connect to the Internet at the same time.But Eclips program did not install.This problem is for all programs , means my "Add/Remove Application" does not work properly
Installed the 64 bit version of Fedora 13. I can't log in on the graphical login with root. I can with the user I created.I can su to root after that in a terminal. Unable to locate the Administration menu but it's not where its suppose to be. yum gives me a error "refresh-packagekit" can't be imported
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 and I can't seem to find the printer administration tool, it's not located in System->Administration->Printer or anywhere else on the menu. I've checked the menu editor and it's not shown there either.
I've just started using Debian having previously used Ubuntu. With Ubuntu, under the System->Administration menu I get lots of options (e.g. Network Tools, Printing, Services...) to select from, but with Debian I just get Login Screen. Do I just get the one option because this is the only thing installed, or do I need to do something to enable other admin options?
I just upgraded my Ubuntu 9.10 to Ubuntu 10.04. Part of the Ubuntu 9.10 installation was GParted (version 0.4.5) and I saw, after upgrading to Ubutnu 10.04, there was a more recent version available: 0.5.1.
After installing that version, GParted was still part of the System > Administration menu (just as it was before).
But then I saw the version 0.6.0 of GParted was recently released and there was also a .deb distro available.
After downloading and installing the 0.6.0 version of GParted, the item GParted disappeared from the System > Administration menu and appeared in another menu (Applications > System Tools).
My question: how can I get GParted back as part of the Systems > Administrations menu?
Well like the title Implies, In my Administration menu in Gnome I don't have a "Printing" option. So I can't search for/install printers right now.I'm running 10.04 Server. I installed the gnome-desktop-environment package to get a GUI up and running for manipulating the filesystem, But not all the menu's I was expecting appeared. Is this because I used the gnome-desktop-environment instead of the ubuntu-desktop-environment package? ecause I have two PC's setup next to each other. One using the ubuntu-desktop-environment, and one using the gnome-desktop-environment package and the two desktops are clearly different.All I want to know is how to add the Printers menu to my PC running the gnome-desktop-environment package. I already looked at gconf-editor and the printing menu isn't hidden or anything, it's just not there. And me being a new user to Linux, I don't know how else to get to those printer abilities without the GUI
I just upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10. I originally had installed the nvidia drivers using the bash script from nvidia's website. This time around I used the ones from synaptic. However now when I go and look in System -> Administration there are 2 entries for "NVIDIA X Server Settings". The first one has the NVIDIA logo, the other one has a grey question mark. Does anyone know why there are 2 entries and how I can remove one of them?
I just need to develop a menu based Administration tools in LINUX similar like SAM - HP and SMIT - AIX , should be in a position to work with tab and space bar and arrow keys ,should i write a code in c language only or i can implement the same in shell script itself.
simple installs of CentOS5.2 i386 on 2x Dell C640's and x86-64 on a Dell dimension 9150 resulted in the System/Administration menu offering two entries each with the name 'hardware' and the icon showing a little chip hovering over a PC. I did "add this launcher to panel" on both as an easy way of checking their properties:
The higher entry issues the command 'hwbrowser' The lower entry issues the command 'hal-device-manager'
Both have the comment "view information on the hardware on this computer". I feel the hal-device-manager entry has the wrong name, comment, and icon. I think /etc/xdg/menus/system-settings.menu is relevant.
Every time I open "sound preferences" from either the sound applet or the preferences menu pulseaudio CPU usage goes right up to 100% and proceeds to lock up the entire computer. pavucontrol, paman, and all the other pulseaudio utils work fine, except for ubuntu's sound preferences. It affects a new account.This is my 10.04 desktop that is affected. I have just the default pulseaudio config.
When I choose System --> Preferences --> Screensaver, it runs x-screensaver instead of gnome-screensaver, BUT, in /usr/share/applications, I have the file:
And the contents are:
[Desktop Entry] Name=Screensaver Comment=Set your screensaver preferences Icon=preferences-desktop-screensaver Exec=gnome-screensaver-preferences
So it should be launching gnome-screensaver, not x-scrensaver. Where on earth is x-screensaver getting launched from? I thought the menu was determined by /usr/share/applications. (By the way, I did previously have x-screensaver instead of gnome, I am trying to put it back how it was. I have more-or-less succeeded, except this Menu item which is puzzling me.)
i stalled ubuntu 11.04 , i am following some tutorials in order to learn ubuntu. I noticed that the top menu is not visible in ubuntu 11.04. How to get it back. i found this article in internet. will this work [URL]
just recently upgraded to 10.04. After the upgrade I noticed that certain Administration menu items are msising. I can't find the "Hardware Drivers" tool. Is there a way to reinstall to put the complete files and correct the menu items, etc.?
Ubuntu 10.04 I removed the Me Menu from the panel and then put it back (right click -> Add to Panel -> Indicator Applet Session). The Me Menu came back, but my name is not on the panel. When the Me Menu came back it was just a small blank on the panel next to the Power Button. There was no name, no icon, no nothing to tell me that was the Me Menu. In fact, I only accidentally found it when I happened to click in that blank space. I checked to see if there was any sort of Preferences setting for the Me Menu so I could get it to display my name for me to click on (like it did before), but could not see a setting like that. How can I make the Me Menu to be more visible than just a blank spot on the panel?
Applications working properly with SUDO only UBUNTU Noteboox 10.10 XUBUNTU I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick notebook version on my HP Compaq nc6400 (Intel core2 CPU T5600@1.83GHZ). Later installed Xfce4. So, I am now on Xubuntu on top of Ubuntu (it seems).Coming to my problem, even though application working fine normally, Menu is not displayed in most of the applications. Ex: Transmission, GIMP, Mousepad, Pinta, gedit ........ No application shows the file,edit.. menus.
Also file sharing is also not possible in normal mode. When I right click on any folder or file sharing option is not visible. But if I run these applications with SUDO the menus are appearing. When I open nautilus with SUDO , I am able to get sharing options in right click. I tried the below command as advised in thread.php?p=6474144 But it failed
I have a problem with eclipse and naultis and some other applications that the menu bar(File Edit View) is not visible. I actually bfore getting this issue I try to modify using gconf-editor and installed some themes for gnome.
I have a clean install of openSUSE 11.4 64 bit using gnome as the desktop manager. When selecting applications from the gnome menu, randomly the application will appear to not launch. However, if I click anywhere in left, upper portion of my desktop it becomes obvious that the application has launched and is not visible. For example, yast will not appear but clicking in that portion of my desktop causes various windows to appear that correspond to the different options in the yast home screen.
I have Opensuse 11.2 installed (on hd0 at the time of installation) To install Windows 7 alongside I had to switch my hard drives (hd0 became hd1 and vice versa) What is the best approach to reinstall grub and get both Opensuse and Win7 visible in the grub menu?
I have to use alsa for audio to work under wine (otherwise pulseaudio starts eating up processor cycles and the audio comes out horrible and distorted), but I have been unable to use the mic. The mic boost is up on the alsa mixer, and they are not muted. I cannot find any options under my system menu for Sound Preferences (which seems to get references in a lot fo help forums), or anywhere else to determine which audio driver the line in on the front uses.
I'm using an Acer laptop from a couple years ago, so support should be no problem.
Menu sometimes will stay visible on the desktop or on top of other windows after selecting them. To fix it I normally log out then log back in. Its been doing it for a few weeks. I install lots of eye candy/themes etc and have Avant, docky and cario-dock and think it be may some eye candy I installed, not sure. I have a ATI graphics card thats been tested by the distro.Using the latest 10.10 as I update security and recommended updates via update manager.
The problem I am facing is the left menu launch bar is not appearing when I startup my machine. The top and bottom menus appear after running gnome-panel in a terminal, but it does not fix the left had side launchbar.If i click in the area where the launch bar is I can start some applications, and sometimes the bar will flash ever so briefly.I am really excited to move away from Microsoft, but I wont be able to until this last piece of the puzzle is fixed.My system details are as follows:
