Ubuntu :: Bug In Unity Side Bar - Dodge Windows

May 2, 2011

The unity sidebar is supposed to dodge windows according to the default, and according to the settings in the unity prefs in compiz. This is not the case, as can be seen in this screenshot. Any idea what this could be caused by? It's sporadic when it shows up, but when it happens it does it until I reboot.

Ubuntu :: Unity And Gnome 2 Side By Side?

May 6, 2011

I have to say that I don't mind Unity all that much! Certainly not as much as I had expected to, given what I had been reading before the upgrade from Maverick. I'd like to go on playing around with it. However, I would also like to continue to be able to use Gnome 2 sometimes, with Compiz and Emerald, as I have done in the past.

The trouble is that whenever I log into the "Ubuntu classic" desktop, it loads compiz, complete with the Unity plugin. Then I have to disable the Unity plugin manually every time, and do the same (with no panel) whenever I log into Unity.

Is there a way I can configure it to only load the Unity plugin in the Unity desktop, but not in the Gnome 2 desktop?

Nov 17, 2009

I would like to know how I can view two windows side by side on the same desktop (ex. have two openoffice files side by side) and be able to work on both of them at the same time rather than having to click back and forth from window to window. I have seen this done on people that have MAC computers is there anyway to do this on Ubuntu?

Ubuntu :: Unity Bar On Side And Top Disappeared?

Apr 30, 2011

I just upgraded to 11.04 today, and was playing around with the compiz-fusion settings. The first thing I checked was the fade to desktop box, and that froze up my computer. I let it sit for a little bit, but eventually got bored and just turned off my computer via the power button. When I started it up, both the tool bar on top and the launcher on the side had disappeared, and I don't have a clue how to get them back.

Ubuntu :: Enabled Desktop Cube In Unity - Side / Top Bar Disappeared

Apr 30, 2011

I just upgraded to unity and everything is fine. Then I accidentally enabled Desktop Cube and Cube Rotation. Suddenly, the top part of windows that you normally use to drag the window or close it etc. started disappearing. In a panic, I rebooted. Upon reboot I found myself in an even bigger mess than I could have imagined. Not only did this fail to fix the problem previously mentioned, it also caused the sidebar and the ubuntu bar at the top to disappear. Desktop icons still show, and my cursor is fully functional, but other than that, my system is unusable.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Amarok Jams Unity Side Bar - Force Bar To Hide?

Jul 12, 2011

I find that when I use Amarok my Unity side bar gets jammed in position, and won't hide away. This is really irritating as the play button is under the bar so I can't click it! The side bar is stuck in position whether Amarok is maximised, in a window or minimised, or even if I close Amarok and just leave it playing (Amarok isn't even listed on the Unity bar in this case). The only way to make the side bar vanish is to completely quit Amarok. Is there anything I can do to force the bar to hide?

Ubuntu :: Get The Pop-up Text Balloons From The Unity Below It When Move The Mouse Over To The Left Side Of The Screen

Oct 28, 2010

I am running 10.10 Netbook Edition. I added Terminal Server Client to the Unity Menu and I typically run it in Full Screen mode to manage serveral windows based servers. The problem is that TSC displays perfect in full screen (unity tool bar hidden) but when i move the mouse over to the left side of the screen i get the pop-up text balloons from the unity below it. I cannot click on any items along the left edge of the remote desktop window including the windows start key. I want to confirm if this is a bug? and how to report it if so.

General :: Ubuntu - Play Two Or More Videos Side By Side In A Synchronized Fashion

May 10, 2010

I have two (or more) video files that I want to play side by side. I could do that simply by opening them in two seperate windows, but that would also seperate all the controls (play/pause/forward/...). I want to play them in a synchronized fashion so that pause/forwarding/... works on both videos simultaneously so that they always stay at the same timecode and they don't go out of sync. How would I accomplish that in Linux?

This is needed for viewing only, so compositing them into a new video file first should be avoided if possible, but if there isn't an easy way to do that, I welcome answers doing it with composition as well.

Ubuntu :: Make New Icons Automatically Add To Right Side Instead Of Left Side Of Desktop?

Dec 18, 2010

If a file gets created in the user's Desktop folder, or if a drive is added to the machine and a Desktop icon is correspondingly created, they will by default appear on the left side of the desktop (unless, in the case of the latter, the specific drive has been created before and dragged to the right side, in which case GNOME will remember to put it in the same place).

Because I have a terminal window embedded onto my Desktop in the top left corner and occupying most of the screen), I keep my icons on the right side of the Desktop instead of the left (Mac style) - Any time I add a new drive or a file is sent to the Desktop, however, I have to kill the terminal window to be able to click on the icon, then drag it back to the right side, then restart the terminal.

Is there any way to tweak GNOME so that these icons are added from the top right corner and down instead of from the top left, automatically?

Ubuntu Installation :: Setup A Dual Boot System With XP Running Side By Side On Thinkpad T41?

Jan 28, 2010

have been trying to setup a dual boot system with ubuntu and XP running side by side on my Thinkpad T41.tried it a few times and always causes the same problem. i have 40 gig HDD, on which i create a 13 gig NTFS partition and leave the rest as free space. then install XP on the NTFS partition. no problems.

then i boot from the ubuntu disk (9.10 Karmic) and install using the "use free space" option at the partition section. ubuntu installs ok, and boots fine from GRUB 2.0. BUT when i select the XP option from GRUB's list, it starts to boot XP, i get the standard XP loading screen for three seconds and then it crashes to a blue screen critical problem, and restarts the system. when i then boot from the xp cd and go into recovery mode CHKDSK will not recognise the disk, and DISKPART shows one HDD at 35 gig which it cannot access.

this means i cant run FIXBOOT and get my xp install running again. every time i do this process it produces the same problem. tried at first with xp installed on whole HDD, and reducing the xp partition size. killed XP. then tried ubuntu first and xp second - but this caused the same inaccessible disk problem - xp would not recognise the partitions and would not install. so i slipstreamed my XP install disk to SP2 hoping this would make it recognise the partitions, but no luck there. so had to format all and repartition the 13 gig NTFS for xp. installed xp again without difficulty but ubuntu install killed my xp in the same way.

Ubuntu :: Finding A Software To Compare Two Documents Side By Side?

Sep 23, 2010

I'm looking for a software to compare two documents (for example .odt) side by side or highlighted in graphical way. I want to do the same as Word 2010 Compare Documents (see this: Microsoft Word 2010: View Two Documents Side By Side). I found in OpenOffice something a bit similar that, see in <Edit> -->> <Compare documents>, but it's not a good visual presentation. I'm looking for a software who give me the possibility to see the differences between two documents side by side, or highlighted.

Ubuntu Installation :: Side By Side Upgrade - Copying APT Repository?

Jun 5, 2011

I'm wondering how much of my currently installed packages I can transfer to a new system...I have a HDD split in two. I have 10.4 on one half (/dev/sda6) - my working system for the last year or so since my last upgrade - and I have just installed 11.04 on the other half (/dev/sda. I wanted to check out the new version rather than upgrading. note I have my home folder and all stored data on other drives (zfs mirrored disks) - the boot disk is mostly OS related... I can overwrite /dev/sda8 with impunity as long as /dev/sda6 is intact....

What I want to do is capture the wide variety of packages I have installed on the old version and install them onto the new system - without using the dist-upgrade mechanism... I've had it fail too many times leaving me with a complete rebuild being required... is this (partially) possible or have too many core packages changed? I was especially thinking of something like [URL]

to obtain the list:

dpkg --get-selections | awk �$2 ~ /^install$/ {print $1}� > installedpackages

to reinstall:

cat installedpackages | xargs sudo aptitude install -y

another path would be to clone the entire /dev/sda6 onto /dev/sda8, boot into the duplicate and dist-upgrade that

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04, No Option To Load Along Side Of Windows 7?

Jun 19, 2011

The only options I get for loading Ubuntu 11.04 on my HP 2000-219DX Laptop is: 1. completely remove windows 7 and download Ubuntu, or 2. Manually partition the HD. I'm no computer wiz and am fairly new to GNU/Linux so I really don't know what the problem might be. I need the windows os for work but would prefer to run the Ubuntu distro for personal computing. I have the same problem with Ubuntu 10.10, so no Ubuntu for this laptop until I can get this problem solved.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing 9.10 Side By Side With Kubuntu 9.04?

Mar 31, 2010

I did a search but for this topic and I thought it would be discussed quite a bit, did not get any results. Maybe I did not use the correct words? Anyhow, I am running Kubuntu 9.04 and wish to switch to Ubuntu Karmic 9.10. I do still want to keep Kubuntu 9.04 as a boot up option temporarily in case I have major issues with Ubuntu. Ill also need to know how to get rid of Kubuntu after Im sure all is well with Ubuntu. Finally, there are a ton of boot options (different kernels Ive upgraded to) in Grub when Kubuntu boots up. How do I get rid of those? I also have a Windows XP partition that I boot into occasionally.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Side-by-Side Hiccup?

Aug 10, 2010

Just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my home laptop after testing it (and loving it) on my work desktop just this morning. First time Ubuntu user and looking to be a long one, too.Anyways, I used the "install side-by-side" on both machines, but my laptop, with Vista, has a weird side effect. At the boot screen, I chose Windows Vista and it booted the recovery tool (I forgot the exact name). I was worried at first, but when I chose the actual Windows Recovery option below it to attempt to fix it, it booted Vista. So it seems in the process of partitioning the HDD for Ubuntu I somehow switched what each partition boots. Is there a way to correct this?

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot Slow Down Windows Side?

Oct 15, 2010

Just to make this clear after I installed Ubuntu 10.10 I downloaded everything and updated everything but when I booted into my Windows side I was shocked that the boot time was so freaking fast but after logging in the start up programs took about 10 minutes and I was able to use my windows after total of 15 minutes I know this is a lot the reason as I think is the GRUB file is actually slowing my windows because it doesn't want to harm my hard drive this is just a guess.

[The prize of the worst OS ever goes to Windows Vista!]
