Ubuntu :: Gnome-terminal 'Use Background Settings From System Theme'

Jan 17, 2011

I'd like to change the default transparency level for the gnome-terminal.The gnome-terminal has this setting in: Edit --> Profile preferences --> Background tab, called "Use background settings from system theme". Indeed, I can simply uncheck this setting and manually adjust, but then my changes would apply to all themes, if I were to change my theme in the future.How can I edit the transparency of the GTK theme itself so that it applies to gnome-terminal?I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 with the "Ambiance" theme, and I'm seeing these files which are probably relevant. Am I on the right track? (those files don't contain anything obvious like "transparency" or "opacity" to change ... so I"m not exactly sure what/where to change)

Ubuntu :: 10.04.GNOME (Classic) Why Does Some Terminal Window Background Appear Differently

May 22, 2011

Why does on some computers my terminal window have a background I can see through and on others its a solid color? I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed on 4 machines as base OS and I have many virtual machines of it also. I havent changed the terminal preferences on any of them, however on some computers the terminal background which is purple is not solid in that you can see what is in the background behind it. On others the background is truly solid purple; you can not see behind/through it.

Is there any way to change the terminal window for these machines that are displaying solid to the 'see-thru' way? Ive been using some ebooks and things and really like opening up vi/vim in the purple see-thru window that allows me to write and see the text in the background...however on some machines I can not do this because the terminal display is truly solid. ? All my computers have the same profile settings for terminal..

color = use system theme
background = Solid color

Note - I am making a distinction here between what I call see-thru and the 'transparent' setting in the terminal preferences as this seems to use the desktop background and is different from what I am talking here.

Ubuntu :: Change Gnome Background To Random Image (perl)?

Apr 8, 2011

First, I wrote a bare bones bash script to change the gnome desktop background to a random image [URL] Then, I realized there are dozens of bash scripts posted in the ubuntu forums just like this one [URL] next, rothalem & I rediscovered the drama of processing files in bash that have spaces in the name [URL] Finally, sflitman suggested dumping bash all together & just using perl [URL]

Result :

A pretty little perl script to change the gnome desktop wallpaper / background to a random image. - If you are unfamiliar with perl :

[URL]

The completed script isn't bullet proof but it will :

- accept command line arguments
- accept files & dirs with spaces in the name
- catch most errors or use the defaults.

Step 1 : Inherit the appropriate CPAN library ( from command line )

- Main Menu -> Accessories -> Terminal

Code:

sudo cpan File::Random

Step 2 : Cut-n-Paste this code into a perl script & change red line to the path_to_your_wallpaper_images

Code:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
# rocuan & sflitman
use Cwd;
use strict;

[code]....

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome - How To Change Background Image For Login Window

Jul 16, 2011

I'm fairly new to Debian/GNOME, and I'm running Squeeze and GNOME 2 and I have some questions. How exactly do I change the background image for the login window? I've looked up various suggestions but none of them seem to work - the appearances window does not ever seem to change the background image for the login screen. Also, whenever I log out or when I close the lid on my laptop and it suspends, I am unable to log back in - all I see is a black screen and my cursor, which I can move.

General :: Different Background For Each New Terminal?

Mar 7, 2011

I'm currently using Ubuntu 10.10. I frequently end up opening a few terminals and it's easier to keep track of what I'm doing if the terminals have different backgrounds or are colored differently. Is there a way already made which will start up a new terminal with a background different then one that's already open? Or a way that when the terminal is opened it will start the terminal under a profile that's not yet open? That being, when I open a terminal it opens the "first" profile. Then once I try opening a new terminal it checks and finds that I already have one with the "first" profile open and so the new terminal is opened with the "second" profile.Does anything like this feature already exist? Or something like it?

Ubuntu :: Change Language Gnome Terminal 10.04

Apr 27, 2010

I just installed ubuntu 10.04 on our laptop. for convenience I also installed the dutch (gnome) translation and selected Dutch as the default language so all menu's and localisation is suitable for the Netherlands and the misses understands stuff. However I noticed that the gnome terminal is also translated so all output from bash is now in Dutch too. This is really inconvenient since I have been using bash in english on fedora and ubuntu for 10 years now. So is there a way to reconfigure gnome term (bash) to default back to english and leave the GUI in Dutch?

Ubuntu :: Can't Change Settings For Gnome-terminal In 10.04?

May 12, 2010

Editing the profile in gnome-terminal has absolutely no effect on the appearance. I can change background color, transparency, image, etc. in the profile edit window, save changes,and the _actual_ terminal appearance does not change at all. I did make sure to switch to the edited profile after editing -- to no avail.The default navy-on-light-blue isn't bad, but the light-green default for executables is effectively completely invisible on the light blue background.Is this a bug? Or does someone have a workaround?FWIW, gnome-terminal in 9.10 was completely customizable

General :: Change The GRUB2 Boot Loader Background Image?

May 1, 2011

i've started off using linux with ubuntu 10.10, and then i moved to linux mint 10 kde, and after finding out that it didn't support my hardware, in specifically my graphics card, i switched back to ubuntu 10.10, and from there i upgraded to 11.04. i hated the gui so i switched it from ubuntu to ubuntu (classic) environment. i also installed kubuntu-desktop too, and it looks a lot like mint 10 kde, i guess it uses kde 4.6, but... it's more stable for me. anyway, what i mean is that, originally ubuntu had a black background, linux mint 10 kde had a pretty cool custom mint background, ubuntu 11.04 has a purple background. i looked on videos, i found people using customized backgrounds, but they either don't explain how they got it *like for instance, someone said opensuse 11 or 13 has an icy penguin animated background, and someone else had one that you could scroll through.* or it's too complicated or outdated. is there a simple way to change your grub2 boot loader background image?

Ubuntu :: Graphics - Change To A Warped Mix Of Colors And Pixels When Change The Background Image

May 19, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix on my Gateway LT3103u. I noticed shortly into using it that it has a graphics bug every so often. Especially when I change the background image. Everything will change to a warped mix of colors and pixels. Everything is affected. My mouse, the bar at the top of the screen, text and all. My netbook runs on an AMD Athlon 64-bit processor with ATI Radeon X1270 HyperMemory up to 256MB graphics.

So far I have tried reinstalling, and even the 64bit desktop edition which had the same problem. Ive noticed that it freaks out when i scroll too quick, when changing background images, and on certain websites. Then other times its completely random. When it happens it looks similar to these: [URL]

Ubuntu :: GDM Background - Cannot Change The Background Image To Any Of Mt .jpg Wallpaper Files And .png Files

Apr 3, 2011

I have spent the most part of 5 hours trying to fix this issue. For some reason I cannot change the background image to any of mt .jpg wallpaper files (and .png files). I've tried using the Ubuntu-Tweak application, but I end up getting a purple screen (default) or a black screen (default). So then I tried using the terminal method by making the Appearance window appear when I would log out. That works, except when I go to use my background image, it shows as a question mark for the image preview, and the icon for the file is a gray box. All while doing this my background images that I tested are all in the /usr/share/backgrounds location. Please help! I really want to get rid of the default images and use my images... :/ My desktop/screen in 1440x900, and most my background images are around that size. They work with my regular desktop for my account.
