Ubuntu :: Appearence And Security Tabs Missing In StartUp-Manager Application

May 3, 2010

I installed Startup Manager but the appearance and security tabs are missing. I really want to be able to change the resolution of the splash screen cause it looks all pixelated and I want to have the splash screen that 9.10 had.

I tried reinstalling and restarting but the issue remains. I know its somewhat functional because I am able to change the seconds that grub takes but when I try to change the resolution of the purple ubuntu startup screen it looks like it tries to change it but it fails.

Ubuntu :: Network Manager Is Not Working Anymore

Mar 1, 2010

I'm a newbie in Linux (ubuntu) environment. Well my prob started as I tried to install several w-lan applications. I tried them out and deleted them again. Till (I don't remember the name of the prog) I finally shoot "network manager". I tried some things like:
Second installation of ubuntu to get back internet.
Downloaded some deb files and installed them in off-line mode.

But it doesn't work because some not satisfiable things happened now I tried to fix over USB live to fix it no chance. What I need is a possibility to install from USB on my first system or boot system one and USB on the same time to use the internet per switching or something like that. Maybe it's possible to update my system wile the USB system is running? Or is there a possibility to use the ubuntu CD and install all needet packages from there because network manager is already in Ubuntu. I think that all OS company's have to think about that , when they deliver a OS that you can choose or afterwords reinstall progs from the original source ...or what?

Ubuntu :: Appearence Window Pops Up At Startup / Stop It To Do So?

Feb 4, 2011

I am fairly used to Ubuntu, and i decided to try and change my login background (10.10) using the code:

sudo cp /usr/share/applications/gnome-appearance-properties.desktop /usr/share/gdm/autostart/loginwindow,


sudo unlink /usr/share/gdm/autostart/loginwindow/gdm-simple-greeter.desktop

i later realized what i did and i tried to unlink the gnome-appearance-properties.desktop but no luck.

is there any way to stop the appearance properties from popping up at login, and to reinstall the gdm-simple-greeter.desktop ?

Ubuntu :: Chane ONLY Icon Themes, Not Panel Themes?

Aug 6, 2010

I would like to install a new icon theme without effecting my currently selected panel theme, as i think the Ambience panel theme looks really nice and unified but im not too keen on the Ubuntu-Mono icons.Is this easily possible, without going into my icon folders and replacing all the instances of one style for another?Are there any applications for gnome icon theming like OS X's Candybar?Im sure others must desire to change only the icons and perhaps it is really easy and this is why i couldnt dig anythin up on google, that or im a useless googler.

Ubuntu :: Shows Themes Only In ~/.themes Folder

Aug 25, 2010

Since of late "Appearance preference" behaves awkwardly . Normaly It is supposed to show themes in /usr/share/themes right? but now it shows themes only in ~/.themes folder. I don't know what affected the change. how do I configure it as to show themes in /usr/share/themes/,?

Also whatever theme I use , Controls would stay same(Classic controls). They wouldn't be update to those of the Theme used.

Ubuntu :: Install Some Emerald Themes On 11.04?

May 21, 2011

Ok yesterday I had a problem where I tried to install some Emerald themes on Xubuntu 11.04. It did not work and in the process, all of my Windows Decoration was gone, the Maximize and Minimize buttons at the top of each windows were gone, as shown in the picture attached. I am done with emerald, I uninstalled, I just want my top windows bars back. I found a command for the terminal that fixed it, but when I turned my PC on this morning, the bars were gone again, and I had to reenter that command again. The command it 'xfwm4 --display=:0.0 --replace' that brings them back. Is there a way for my computer to automatically do that command or is there another permanent solution?
