Ubuntu :: Top Bars Disappear In Firefox Window

Oct 13, 2010

I must have installed an add-on that causes this most irritating little glitch. When I'm working in the Firefox window, the top tool bars vanish.. the problem is that the "-,o, x" also vanish. Which add-on is responsible for this bit of grief..?

OpenSUSE :: KDE 4.6 Not Rendering Menues And Window Bars Correctly?

Apr 23, 2011

I recently installed openSUSE 11.4 on my computer and laptop (both 64bit via dvd, one has AMD CPU and nVidia gpu, the other has intel cpu and graphics card). The problem is that when I move my mouse on close and minimize and maximize buttons of windows sometimes they aren't rendered correctly, and KDE menues aren't rendered correctly either, they mix with the background somehow. the menu problem goes away if I change the theme to plastik, but the window problem remains, here are links to some picture of what goes wrong in my system:

btw sorry that I uploaded them in server, the other picture upload site like tinypic are blocked in my country

PS: Enabling or disabling desktop effects has no effect on the problem.

Ubuntu :: Moving Window Title Bars To Top Panel Like UNR

Jan 13, 2010

I just moved from the netbook remix of Ubuntu to the normal version... I really didn't like the desktop layout of UNR. One feature I did like, though, was that every time a window was maximized, the title bar was integrated into part of the top panel... which saved a lot of space on this tiny little screen. Is there a nice way to get that feature on the normal version of Ubuntu?

Debian Multimedia :: Spice Client Window - Black Bars

Dec 22, 2015

Spice server/client configuration. I used remote viewer on debian jessie to connect to a guest virtual machine on kvm and everything works fine. It used a spice server / client and qxl. After I upgraded to debian stretch, I suddenly face issues with black bars in the remote client window. Those black bars appear only on the left and right side of the remote viewer window. Also in full screen mode the black bars sadly appear. Maybe the scaling mode is somehow disabled or my screen resolution of the host was wrong calculated related to that i can change the guest screen resolution but the spice remote client keeps its window size with the black bars. I was trying the last couple of days to resolve this issue, unfortunately without success.

Ubuntu :: Title Bars Disappeared And Other Window Manager Breakage?

May 23, 2011

I came into work this morning to find XFCE's window manager completely broken: no title bars, unable to move windows around, and unable to focus on a window to type in it (terminal, browser address bar, etc.). I tried going into the preferences then window manager settings, but just got a blank panel. Deleting .config/xfce4 didn't solve the problem.

I'm thinking of just doing a clean install of Xubuntu, or more likely another Xfce-based distro, since my current setup (regular Ubuntu with Xubuntu also installed) is quite messed up (same startup applications being used for Gnome and Xfce, and various other issues). I can't remember whether I did any updates last Friday that might have broken it.

Interestingly I used to have similar issues with Xmonad when I used it - some features didn't work properly and I had to restart the WM to fix them. Never did find a proper solution.

Ubuntu :: Windows Manager Not Working, No Title Bars, No Window Buttons?

Dec 12, 2010

Today upon booting my Xubuntu 9.04, I see that all new windows I open have their title bar missing and on top of my pannel menu. If I try to run windows manager from the menu, nothing shows up on the screen. Therefore I think my windows manager is not running at all. I have no graphic effects and dont want any. I noticed that nothing shows up on the task bar (bottom bar) when I have anything opened up in the desktop. Can't minimize, can't click close button, ...How do I fix this ? I followed a thread to install Compiz and emerald just so I could get it to work but I do not like this option. I do not want any special effects. The more effects/options I have the more possible problems I may get. By the way I also have this problem on my office Ubuntu 10.04. Both started having this problem recently. I suspect it is an update that was done that is causing this.

Ubuntu :: Closing 3 Window Bars - Dont Have The Minimize Maximize Or Close Buttons

May 20, 2010

So I have these three bars that I suppose are some kind of left over fragment of windows I had up the last time I rebooted. Anyhow, whenever I boot now, these three bars show on my desktop, and I cant get rid of them, they dont have the minimize, maximize or close buttons. Yet when I click the, "show desktop" buttom, they then minimize. HOwever, they don't show up on my window list. I've tried restarting my xsession and that didnt work, I've restarted nautilus that didn't work, I cant right click on them, I already tried xkill and force quite and that doesnt work. They're just always there.

Ubuntu :: Missing Title Bars After Update In Xubuntu

Mar 23, 2011

The title bars / window decorations are missing since the last update done about two days ago. I have AMD64 / nvidia 6600 / 2GB / compiz. Latest driver is installed for nvidia and it was working without any problems since 9.04. Now I find that desktop visual effects are selected as 'None' and I am unable to make it 'extra'. Earlier it was set as custom and I had no problems. I have searched the forums and tried many solutions without any success. Now I am running metacity (metacity --replace)with no visual effects, 'compiz --replace' brings back the problem . Is there any way of enabling visual effects // compiz now? Or do I have to re-instal the whole thing

Ubuntu :: 10.04, Java 6 Update 24 Has Removed Windows Title Bars From Most Windows In Desktop

Mar 25, 2011

I am a ubuntu novice. I am running 10.04 LTS on a Lenova laptop. Runs fine. Yesterday upgraded firefox and upgraded Java 6 from update 20 to update 24 so that I could use the Zotero bibiliographic program in FF. After the upgrade and restart, the windows title bar that includes minimize, maximize and close buttons has disappeared from all windows that I open except google chrome. If I open and app, or FF, or the dvd player, title bar is gone. I have noticed that Java updates have caused similar problems before but none of the prescribed steps seems to have changed my system

Fedora :: F14 Does Not Load After Update - No Login Window

May 9, 2011

I have a problem with my Fedora 14, only on Fedora 15. Been out of my home for a week, when I arrived home and turned the PC on first thing I made was the update, as usual. But when I reboot or shutdown the PC and when I go to do login, the Fedora get's stuck and doesn't show me the login window to insert my login. Made a clean install and it worked fine, until I made the last updates and it became again, stuck before the login window appears. Is there any update making this? What could be? It must be some update, because when I made the clean install it worked fine, and with the first update also worked fine.

Ubuntu :: Window Titles Don't Update In 11.04 Classic?

May 7, 2011

When I switch tabs in Firefox or Gedit the window title doesn't update, though the task bar title does, and if I minimize and then restore it updates to the correct value until I switch tabs again. Are there any workarounds? What sort of debug info do I need to post?

Ubuntu :: Vanishing Window Manager After Update?

Jul 13, 2011

Yet another problem, but I need some input here. I just updated and restarted my computer (lots of updates), and when I logged in all of the window decorations are gone as well as alt-space and alt-tab doing nothing. Thinking that the update messed with the WM settings, I opened the settings manager up, but both the Window Manager and Window Manager Tweaks section are blank. The other sections are fine, just those two. (and no, I'm not doing Unity, KDE, or Gnome) The panels appear to be functioning correctly, though my workspaces got smashed as well.

Edit: Upon closer inspection, I can no longer add workspaces, I set the number of workspaces to 4, but it only shows one in the list below

Edit 2: Upon creating a new user to mess with themes, the WM was working fine in the new user, same problems in this user.

Fedora :: Compiz Missing Options And Window Update Errors?

Jan 8, 2010

I just installed the latest compiz as per leigh's instructions - nice, easy install!I notice that the snow application is missing. That was my favorite, but where has it gone??

How about floating windows above desktop cube? Dodge? In which upon selecting a window, the non-selected windows move around it to move it to the front.I also notice that many window updates are very poor. For example, in the compiz settings manager when I switch tabs, the window does not actually update unless I move it. I click on a tab and it looks just like the previous tab. If I move the mouse around, it will update the wind in blocks under the mouse, but not the whole window.And, it would appear that the standard compiz is still available from my desktop settings in KDE. Could I have failed to remove the original compiz?

Ubuntu :: Bars At Top And Bottom Gone?

Mar 21, 2010

I've been running Xubuntu for the past month or two on my Acer Aspire One netbook with very few problems, and generally I've been happy. But this morning, I went to boot up my netbook to check my email and when it booted, I got to my desktop, but the bars at the top and bottom of the desktop are missing. I thought at first that it was hanging during the loading of Xubuntu and that there was a serious problem at hand that might've demanded a reinstall of Xubuntu, but upon further study once I got back to my campus, I discovered that the bars have simply disappeared and that everything else runs fine. When I try to click "Panel" in "Settings", which I'm assuming is where I'd adjust settings for said bars, nothing comes up.

As I think about it, it doesn't seem like a major problem, considering everything else still seems to function fine, but I would like to have them back again.

OpenSUSE :: Compiz & No Menu Bars?

Mar 21, 2010

I have opensuse 11.2 64 bit with the latest Nvidia drivers on a Gnome desktop; out of the box compiz 7.8 worked great. I had no intention of upgrading but I did with the upgrade to 8.4. Everything upgraded fine except I lost my menu bars on all screens when they were opened. I downgraded back down to 7.8 and still the same issue. Right now I have no compiz on so I can have have my menu bars. There is something I must be missing when I installed or reinstalled or upgraded compiz. I would like to get an original compiz setup that a fresh install gives.

Ubuntu :: Can't Use Desktop Bars On New Install

May 7, 2010

I didn't like the bar on top so I switched it to be on the bottom while the bottom bar was still there. On top of that, I wasn't thinking and dropped the pixel size for the bar from 24 to 23. I guess I assumed that the bars would either combine or one would be replaced; I don't know. But now I can't use anything from either bar, even though it shows some of the information from the first one. When I click it, it doesn't do anything. It's "under" the other bar, so to speak, rendering both of them useless.

Luckily I am dual-booting from Win7, so I can still use my system. I noticed that Ubuntu loads much slower than Win7, which really surprised me. It could be that the drivers need to be installed on Ubuntu, but I can't get to the driver installer.

should I do an uninstall, reinstall, and try not to be such an idiot next time?

Ubuntu :: Windows Without Scroll Bars In UNR?

Jun 4, 2010

I am having a problem with Ubuntu Netbook Remix. I couldn't stand the new UI with the huge icons taking up my screen, and the maximize/minimize/close buttons displaced, so I enabled the normal Gnome desktop on my netbook. However, with my tiny screen I am seeing that some windows have lost all of the information, and no scrollbar is present.

For instance, when attempting to change account settings in Mozilla Thunderbird, some of the options would extend beyond the bottom of the windows where "cancel" and "ok" are found, but the window ends and no option to scroll down to the missing information exists. A similar problem happens when I try to make adjustments to some items in system administration.

Ubuntu :: Menu Bars Keep Disappearing After A While?

Apr 5, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 on my Cr48 (google beta laptop), which is downloaded from Google.

After a while of using it (it varies, and has been about 30 minutes recently), the menu bars at the top and bottom of the screen disappear.

Webpages perpetually load... but never do. Browser chats still work with people, I just cant load new web pages.

When I hit the power button and am prompted with three shutdown options, the top and bottom icon are red circles with a white X (like it cant load the icon), and all the text is just boxes like it cant load the symbols.

I have to hard reset the whole computer by pulling the battery.
