Ubuntu :: Blank Desktop Appearing - Just Color No Image

Jan 20, 2009

I am running Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex dual-booting with Vista for work purposes. I have been running the two successfully for quite a few months now and am just getting to grips with it. I have lost my desktop at start-up. I get all the way past the Login to a blank desktop background (just colour - no image) and the only thing visible is a Terminal window. As I am not familiar with Linux command lines I can't do very much. I have even tried reinstalling Ubuntu which showed no error messages that I noticed but, I have the same result. At the moment I have used Supergrub to allow me to boot straight to Vista till I get things sorted out.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Image / Photo Editor - Adjust Color - Crop And Resize

Sep 17, 2010

MS office 2003 came with a prgram called "Microsoft Office Photo Manager". It was a surprisingly lightweight application that could adjust color, crop and resize photos. Very simple interface, easy to use. Perfect for simple modifications to digital photos. Is there anything like this in linux? Gimp is certainly not it. Office Drawing and F-Spot photomanager are not it either.

Debian Programming :: Analyze Image Or Screen For Existence Of A Color

Jan 4, 2014

I have a problem for which I imagined a radical solution. Okay, I have a script that uses Alltray's "menu" feature as an interface. It's working greatly, EXCEPT sometimes lxpanel (the panel and tray of LXDE) has a hiccup and restarts, at which point the alltray menu is still running, but the icon is gone from the tray.

I want to somehow test the screen for the existence of a color, a color that is likely only to exist in the icon I've chosen for the chat menu. If the color exists on my screen, then the script can continue to do nothing, but if the color doesn't exist, then that means the alltray icon with my custom icon has disappeared, at which point I should have my bash script close the alltray process and start it again.

How to accomplish the checking of my screen for the existence of a particular color? To simplify, I already have simple screenshot scripts (scrot is good for it), so it would be fine if I could simply analyze an image.

Ubuntu :: Wrong Characters Randomly Appearing On The Desktop?

Aug 28, 2010

I'm a old ubuntu user and It's a long time a have this problem (probably since Gutsy Gibbon) but just now I decided to ask for the community help to solve it, until now I fault every try.randomly, on my desktop and screen in general, appears something like confused characters composing strange writing, and the way to remove them is by selecting a empty area around them, dragging it with the left mouse button.

Those sort of writing appears everywhere on the screen but never over a open application area, those characters looks like a sort of refresh error that I'm unable to definitively remove.To let you better understand how this problem looks like, I link a snapshot of my desktop to show you the problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Downloaded File Just Appearing On Desktop?

Sep 29, 2010

Alright, so I followed the step by step instructions from this page: [URL]. When I downloaded the file, the file appeared on my desktop as an unknown file with the name "ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-i386". I thought this was strange because it didn't have the ".iso" after it. I tried looking for a download location for the file that would give me a .iso file, but whenever I download the file it just appears on my desktop as "ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-i386". After that, I downloaded Infra Recorder, and followed those instructions. Everything was going fine and when the progress bar hit 100%, Infra Recorder gave me some kind of error.

I can't recall exactly what it said, but it said to check the log file or something like that. I wasn't sure what to do at this point, so I tried installing Ubuntu anyway. I rebooted with the CD and it took me to the burgundy screen and it started to load, but then the installation crashed to an MS DOS screen with some gibberish that I didn't understand. Obviously the CD I wrote didn't have all of the installation files it needed. What should I do? Is there something wrong with the file that I downloaded? My computer is a Dell Vostro 200 and I am running Windows XP.

Ubuntu :: Desktop Zoom And Color Inversion Plugins?

Oct 29, 2010

I've installed Xubuntu 10.10 on my old PC and I'd like to get Compiz working. I have a vision problem and I've found its desktop zoom and color inversion plugins to be rather helpful.

I am using Xubuntu. My computer is a custom build PC with a 1.2GHz AMD Athlon XP, 1GB of PC2700 RAM, 8x AGP Nvidia Geforce FX 5600 card w/256MB DDR-RAM, IDE 160GB hard drive, Sound Blaster Live 5.1, and 16x DVD-RW.

Has anyone gotten Compiz to work with XFCE and how can I get this to work?

OpenSUSE Install :: PDFbox 1.5 - Image Conversion Result Blank

Jun 19, 2011

I am using apache pdfbox box 1.5 with openjdk i.6.0_0 on opensuse 11.4 32-bit (minimal install, as provided by amazon ec2). The problem is that when I use the apache pdfbox tool to convert a pdf to an image the image is blank. I am using the exact same application on opensuse 11.2 (default install from opensuse 11.2 dvd) with no problems. I suspect there are issues caused by uninstalled packages. I installed several font packages and Image manipulation packages with no success.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Applescript To Change The Desktop Color Via Plist Edit?

Mar 26, 2010

so I found this applescript somewhere, and not knowing applescript I was wondering if someone could tell me what the edits I need to make to duplicate the functionality found in the perl script which follows the applescript. (ie. I want to cycle through the colors in the same sequence)

Applescript (written by someone else for OS X)

tell application "System Events"
set theDesktopPlist to property list file "~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.desktop.plist"
set theGivenDesktop to property list item "desktopCode" of property list item "Background" of theDesktopPlist
set theColorArray to property list item "BackgroundColor" of theGivenDesktop
on error

Debian Multimedia :: Change Desktop Fonts Color

Apr 21, 2015

poking around in the system settings nor Google are cooperating, so: How do I change the colour of the font on my desktop? I'm running Cinnamon (on Sid) and I've got a background with a lot of black in it, which makes the names of icons impossible to read. I know what everything is, of course, but I'd still like to be able to see what it is.

I just recently installed 10.04 and the desktop look is nice, but all my applications, folders, games, firefox, etc... is missing. The only way for me to access anything basic is to browse through the fony folder I created just to try and find everything. getting at least my Firefox browser and some other basic applications. Oh and I noticed I don't have root access anymore either. I am the only one using the computer, but can't do a thing. I am running Ubuntu 10.04 on my Acer Aspire One Netbook. So I have no HDD.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 - Blank Desktop After Login

Jul 3, 2011

I'm new to Ubuntu, so new that in fact that this is my first install of the Operating System. I'm currently using Ubuntu 11.04. At login screen, the bottom bar is present, but after I log in it disappears and all I'm left with is just the mouse cursor and the desktop background. This happens for both the Ubuntu and Ubuntu Classic choices. But both top and bottom bars are present when I choose the Ubuntu Classic (No Effects) and Ubuntu (Safe Mode) options. Is there a reason that this keeps happening? A bad install? Hardware can't support the new version of Ubuntu?

Software :: Screen App / Retain BG / Color Background Color Gets Lost

Jul 6, 2009

I am using the screen app, and have set bce to on, and issued the following commands to set my background and foreground color: tput setab 4; clear; tput setaf 7; clear;

This temporarily sets everything properly on my screen. However, when I issue any commands that change or set their own background color (for example, when I issue an "ls" command with colorized output), the background color gets lost for any new output and I have to reissue the commands listed above in order to retrieve my background color.Ideally I'd like to keep my background color when issuing these commands, as it serves as a good way to remind me of what environment I am currently issuing commands in.
