I did a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba Satellite, Intel graphics card, a few days ago, and had no trouble accessing the CompizConfig Settings Manager. I changed a number of settings, and everything seemed to be working just fine. But two days ago, I noticed that the compiz effects (rotating desktop cube, minimize effect etc.) were gone; and when I now try to access the Settings Manager, I see a "Starting CompizConfig..." appear in the panel and linger for about five seconds; then it's gone. No settings manager, no error message.
The day that happened, I had (to the best of my memory) not installed any updates. I had, however, removed a bunch of applications through the Software Center. I had also launched Ubuntu Tweak and changed a couple of settings. The only option it showed, and shows, under 'Compiz Settings' was then (and still is): "Prerequisite Conditions" : "Install Advanced Desktop Effects Settings Manager". The box was checked. I have since unchecked and re-checked it, thereby uninstalling and re-installing the settings manager. But that hasn't changed anything.
When I try to run Screenlets from Applications > Accessories > Screenlets, it says "Starting Screenlets" for a few seconds, and then nothing happens. 'screenlets-manager' from the terminal produces the following
Code: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/screenlets-manager/screenlets-manager.py", line 28, in <module> import screenlets File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/screenlets/__init__.py", line 36, in <module> import rsvg ImportError: No module named rsvg
I have checked to make sure python-rsvg is installed. Upon looking for a solution, I read somewhere that it might have something to do with Compiz. I installed the Compiz settings manager, but when I run it from System > Preferences > CompizConfig Settings Manager, it does the exact same thing Screenlets does ("Starting CompizConfig Settings Manager", then nothing).ccsm from the terminal produces the following
I was attempting to create a cube desktop via compizconfig-settings-manager everything crashed. I can bring up a terminal via ctrl alt F1 or get to the Internet by right clicking on screen and change desktop background get more backgrounds on line. Other than that I can not see nor get any icons or make changes.i have Ubuntu 11.04
Just got my 11.04 and tried to use some settings in Compiz. I`ve made these steps: Install the CompizConfig Settings Manager (ccsm) application from the Software Center. If you need assistance with installing the application, consult the software installation help, or review the Ubuntu Software Center Manual.
After you have installed the program, click the power icon at the very right of the panel and select System Settings. In the Personal section, click CompizConfig Settings Manager. In the Desktop section of the CompizConfig Settings Manager, click Ubuntu Unity Plugin, and select the Experimental tab.
I`ve clicked on the left side there was something like "enable plugin" or sort of. And my launcher, and the pane on the top dissapeared! I got nothing. Just the screen. Nothing is workin. What the f>..?
I like everyone else posing in this forum am trying to reconcile with 11.04. Everytime I adjust a setting in the CompizConfig Settings Manager, the top unity bar wigs out and disappears, it is still clickable but its invisible. Is there any simple fix to this? I don't think it's my hardware because other people are getting this too. I really don't like restarting/logging off my computer everytime I make a compiz change.
So I decided a while ago to download the newest distribution release, Lucid Lynx, and try it out on a LiveCD. The first thing I installed onto the LiveCD environment was CompizConfig Settings Manager. One question I have about it is... Why are so many of the plugins missing or limited?
In 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope, there are many plugin options, and to be honest, I use a large quantity of them. For example, a plugin I use on 9.04 called "Reflection." For those of you who don't know, reflection allows you to show an image in window decorations and shadows. This plugin is completely missing from CompizConfig Settings Manager in 10.04!
Another example, this time a limited one, is the Animations plugin. It's missing the option for closing animation called "Burn." This is an animation I LOVE showing off and using, yet it's... Gone.
Am I missing something? Did I do something wrong on installing it? Is there a way to get the parts that are missing?
Just in case you're wondering how I installed it, it was the popular method of using GNOME-Terminal and typing:
I just updated to Ubuntu 10.04 and am in love with it. However, when I tried to restore everything I had on my compiz, I realized that a integral part for me was missing. The "maximumize" feature is gone. This is the feature that makes a window fill up all the space it can without interfering with other windows, essentially making it like the windows 7 tiling feature, only better since you can do it with multiple windows and in any way you want. This was in the compiz settings manager in 9.10.
I have been using some of the compiz effects now for just over a week with no problems. but yesterday they stopped working for what seems to be no reason. I have the recommended nVidia driver installed, here is my graphics card from lspci:
i wanted to change the opacity settings in compiz config settings manager (i read it in the forum post that i can change opacity using compiz settings) when i opened the ccsm, i did not find the opacity settings in general options...do i have to update or upgrade?
Compiz stopped working entirely recently and I've been trying to reinstall different version, nothing helped. Now when I look at synaptics, the version of the different package (compiz, ccsm, bcop...) are of different version (from 8.2 to 8.6). It tried reinstalling only from synaptics and it didn't change anything. I'm not sure that'll fix my problem, but for sure it doesn't help. Does anybody know what repos i should use to get a clear installation?
I am running 9.10. If I have multiple windows open, and my cursor is moved off the main window (but the focus is unchanged - i.e. I did not click off the main window), the main window will become transparent. At first I thought this was a cool effect, now it just gets on my nerves. I have looked through CompizConfig Settings, I can not find the relevant effect to turn off.
Brand new to ubuntu and I'm trying to get different wallpapers on different work stations. I've read several tutorials and they all say to go to my CompizConfig Settings and go to the Utilities section, under which you will find Wallpaper. I went there and can not find it. I can't right click on my desktop either for some reason. Ran a quick search and I couldn't find anything in the forums.
EDIT: Solved! Had to download compizconfig-plugin-extras
Debian 5 64 bitGnome, using compiz-fusion.Compiz had been working well ever since I installed it last year; a couple of days back there was a debian update (I think and x-server update was there); now compiz does not work anymore. if I select compiz as the window manager from the cmpiz-fusion icon, I cannot move/resize wndows, the titlebar disappears.
I recently tried to plug in a second monitor to my graphics card in an attempt to mess around with a dual monitor set up. This created a duplicate effect (which I expected at first) but downgraded my original monitor to the second monitors max resolution. Now my xorg.conf appears to be blank and I dont believe my fglrx drivers are working anymore.
When I try to start compiz from bash I get the following:
When I attempt fglrxinfo:
I'm running Kubuntu, Karmic AMD64 ATI Radion x1350
What could have happened? All I did was plug in a second monitor and restart!
I recently tried to add a repository by following the directions here: Banshee.fm/download and then select the ubuntu icon at the top. Here is the error I get when I try to run update manager: "Could not initialize the package information An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.
Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:'E:Type 'banshee-team/ppa/ubuntu' is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/banshee-team-ppa-natty.list'The command I entered was sudo add-apt-repository ppa:banshee-team/ppa. I have tried to remove all banshee related checks in software sources of the ubuntu software center. Then I just removed the lines all together. I still cannot open update manger. Get the same error. Anyone know of a fix?
Am not able to install "Simple Compiz Config Settings Manager" When I try to install via Ubuntu Software Center (running unity) I get the following messages: "Package dependencies cannot be resolved" "CCSM has unmet dependencies". How can I resolve this issue to install Simple compiz config settings manager ? Is there a workaround ?
My network manager application went missing a few days ago. I enabled it by right clicking on the taskbar above and opting for "show". It reappeared and worked fine. After I rebooted, however, it was there ok, but it doesn't respond to clicking at all. It has stopped working.
Whenever I try to install something with apt-get, I get a list of errors. Most of the time, the package I want to install gets installed anyway. However, this time samba stopped working, and I discovered that it was no longer on my system. I'm not sure how this happened - I haven't tried to remove it. So, I tried to reinstall it with 'apt-get install samba'. This time, the package did not install, and I got a long output from the terminal:
Right so yesterday my internet worked fine. Today - no connection at all. The light for my cable on the router doesn't even show up. I originally had indicator-network installed, so when the internet first stopped working, I tried a few other options such as tethering to my phone via usb and bluetooth (which I have successfully used in the past). However, these didn't work, and I figured that as connman is still in beta, maybe that was why. So I reinstalled network-manager and network-manager-gnome via a usb stick, uninstalled indicator-network, and rebooted the computer. Still no internet.
When I click on the applet, it says "No network devices are available". This is odd, as I definitely have a network device... it is part of the motherboard. So I thought I'd do the SMARTlan test or whatever it's called. It's part of my BIOS, so I ran that and it returned results that I (kinda) expected: when the cable wasn't plugged in, it returned one set of results. When it was only plugged into my computer (and not the router), it returned another set of results. And when it was plugged into both my computer and the router, it returned a third set of results. So that leads me to believe the cable itself is fine.
And when I move the cable to a different port on the router, nothing changes. The corresponding light still doesn't come on. Network-manager, telling there are no network devices. The BIOS can see the ethernet port and the cable. And the router is functioning perfectly for my parents' computer and my ps3. And I have checked the cable to my computer for physical damage - it follows the same path as the one to my ps3, and on top of that, nothing physical can possibly have happened to it in the last day. This happened once before, except I don't think the network devices were lost.
I'm running Kubuntu 9.10 (Karmic), and my System Monitor (a.k.a. Task Manager) has stopped working. I had been using the graphical version of the app because it was easier and faster for me to deal with. I know that there is a command line solution for this, but I also know it involves having to know the task number of the program I want to kill (I've got a game that I love to play, but only closes cleanly about 10% of the time). I've posted a couple of screen shots to show the errors... The first one is the error message itself (I have to hit 'OK' on this twice to clear it), and the second one is the resulting empty window of the System Monitor
When i first install ubuntu 10.10 the other day my entire windows shared network was visible and accessible through places/network ect.i only had an issue creating a link.Now , for some reason i can no longer see the other windows comp or any of its folders but i can see my sons laptop ( running vista) . obviously i still have access to the network and i have checked the sharing settings on the windows machine.
I have a linksys router in my basement and physical access is pretty much blocked by a stuck trap-door. I could try to shut off the main power switch, but I like to see that as a last resort. The problem I have is that I have an open (no encryption) wifi connection between my pc and linksys router, yet I cannot connect to it. Until a couple of days ago I could connect to it with my android handheld device, my linux laptop, and my windows desktop. All these devices are now unable to connect. I attached the wicd log from my linux laptop. How to gain access to my router again?
Recenlty I installed sbopkg for maintaining slackbuilds scripts and I found it very useful. But there are some limitations coming from outdated repositories for older version of slackware. Eg. a tar ball with Maxima source maxima-18.1.... which is default in the slackbuilds.org repository for slack 12.2 doesn't exist at this moment. One can find older and newer versions. I understand that maintainers of slackbuild scripts are rather focused on recent slack version. Nevertheless such outdated entries should be somehow marked
in the way that a visitor will know that a default source tarball is no longer accessible. Maybe persons who submit the scripts should be responsible for keeping track for a sources. If that problem won't be solved it is a danger that slackbuilds.org will play only a role of some addons to the very recent slack release - but if this will be a case then simpler is to build say additional two or three DVD's of packages.
