I'm setting up a second monitor connected to my laptop via Twinview in the Nvidea settings manager for my system. It is working just fine, except for the fact that when I enable it, it puts the Desktop panels on the secondary screen, as opposed to the primary one. Is there any way to make new panels on the primary screen, or to move them over to the primary screen? I am running Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit on an HP Pavillion dv7 laptop.
I just reinstalled, and now my panels are on the wrong screen. There is nothing on the right-click menu and they can't be dragged and dropped. How the **** do you move the panels to a different screen?
I find that I prefer have both panels located at the screen top. That way I don't have to go to the bottom of the screen for one thing, then back to the top for another. I arranged the panel so the regular top one is on top,then the panel that contains the open applications is underneath.The problem is, when I reboot, the panels lose their order. First, the regular top panel initializes, then the bottom ones starts and pushes the first panel down, which becomes what you see in the picture: I would like to find a way to keep them in the opposite order of what you see in the picture, but every time I reboot they end up in that order.
i am running on ubuntu 10.10 netbook on my acer 5742 64 bit laptop i having some issues with the vertical panel how can i just use the regular panel that come on top is there a way to fix this issues how can i just have regular gnome panel not the ones that come with 10.10 netbook edition is there any guide and how to take away this vertical panels and have normal panels.
I followed the instructions in this guide to get the plasma workspace without having to migrate to kde:http://digitizor.com/2010/01/01/how-...28Digitizor%29All went well, I was able to complete all the steps in the guide, and I double clicked the "plasma workspace.sh" and it launched the plasma workspace fine.Then I tried using the gnome-desktop.sh the same way, but it just started the gnome desktop and quickly reverted to the plasma workspace. So I looked at the commands in the plasma.sh and the gnome.sh, and the commands on the guide page, and noticed they were the same for both shell scripts. So I changed the gnome desktop.sh from:
I deleted all my panels and have been using AWN. Well, Ive decided that I want my panels back. I can get the panels to run through terminal but if i restart, they disappear again. How do I permanently restore my panels? I know that I had to turn off the values for Gnome-panel when deleting the last panel, and I just dont know where I went to do it because I was following instructions from another thread.
i'm an EEE PC user planning an imminent move to Ubuntu Lucid/ Maverick & Debian Sid . . i've put some work into my existing Ubuntu install based on 9.10 karmic nbr2 and am very happy with the results - full credit and thanks to allscreenshots of my work in progress ati'm therefore hoping to be able to upgrade my machine rather than do a fresh install, tho i have by now got .iso's of my present install and backups( dumps ) of gconf.managed to trash my panels a few days back and ended up rebuilding themas gconf --loadand restoring my /.gconf had failed to do the trick of restoring.
I installed the two-panel Nautilus version to Karmic and it added a "start_with_extra_panel" key to gconf. Now, after an upgrade to Lucid, the key is still there but it has no mapping. So, is there a way to tell Gnome to always start with two panels in Lucid?
I have a computer which I have just installed Ubuntu on, after wiping the hard drive and everything is fine except that upon login (it is set to login automatically and skip the login screen), no panels appear. Everything is fully functional: the mouse moves, I can right-click to create a new folder, etc. but I cannot access anything because I have no panels. I have tried two different monitors, one 17" and one smaller (I think 15") and both do the same thing.
I accidentally closed my panels and now my computer EEE with XUbuntu 8.10 has no top or bottom bars. The command i need is xfrc4-panel but where to I put this to make it startup again correctly. What folder and what file and where in the file, and are there any parameters to add.
So, after upgrade from 10.10 to 11.04, after I login there are no panels. Only thing I can do is right click and bring down a drop-down menu. So I created firefox launcher. I've tried to reboot in recovery mode, in some display safe mode, and all panels and windows look fine, with all window buttons, so I tried to change display driver from current recommended to 173 (Nvidia). After reboot problem is still here. I also tried to rename new xorg.conf and replace it with what I think was pre-upgrade one in /etc/X11 but nothing helped.
I am a new Ubuntu user and am looking to make my screen look more like a mac. Is there any possible way to change the splash screen? I keep reading about ways but they don't work on my distro. I am using 9.10.
When I use a little helper window (like the find and replace dialog) in OOo 3.2 on 10.04 UNR it always comes up maximized, which is kind of irritating, because I have to restore it before it's usable. It's weird that such a window should even have a maximize button, but there you go. No biggie, clearly, but if anyone knew of a workaround that would be great! I'm using the clearlooks theme, although I tried with the new black shiny one and it seems to exhibit the same problem.
I was wondering when and/or how to get multiple screens setup and working in unison. Currently I have 3d rendering working but all of my screens work as separate desktops. They all have their own start menu and panel bar. I cannot move a window from screen to screen. I have to open a new window in that screen and then it is stuck on that screen and can not be move any where else. When is this going to be fixed because until it is unfortunately Micro Slop will still have my business. I am a power user and enjoy my 4 screens when they work in unison, not as individuals.
I use multiple screens on my computer in work which is running Ubuntu 10.04 it runs great apart from the VBox VM. I run a windows VM as some apps we use in the office are not compatible with ubuntu and I can't get them running right in wine. In single screen mode I use the VM in 'seamless' mode so the windows start menu just sits on top of the ubuntu panel and I can flip from ubuntu to windows as I please in the same interface (im sure anyone that uses VBox will understand what I mean).
The problem comes when I use a second screen. If I try to run in seamless mode on the main screen it works ok apart from the fact that the windows start menu sits behind the ubuntu panel instead of on top of it. When I move the VM to the second screen I cannot run it in seamless mode at all, if I try the resolution goes hay wire and I only get half the screen (if im lucky). So I just run it in full screen mode which stops me from dragging windows from within the windows VM back to the first screen.
What I want to be able to accomplish is to run the VM in seamless mode on either screen but be able to drag windows accross both screens. Is that at all possible?
I have ubuntu 10.04 installed on the machine. I was trying to installed adobe coldfusion on my netbook , during the installation of the coldfusion the screen locked/grayed out . After rebooting, the ubuntu 10.04 it is Grayed out on the Login Page, I have todo power cycle on the netbook. I tried in the recovery mode but forsomereason , blank screen gets displayed in the recovery mode which made to do ctrl + alt + del.
I am trying to get my desktop to stretch across two screens. (for reference, I am using Kubuntu 10.10) When I start up the system, it duplicates whatever is on the primary monitor onto the the secondary. Initially, playing with the options in the GUI I thought I had it figured. Under System Settings < Display and Monitor < Size and Orientation there is an option that lets me set the position of my secondary monitor to the "right of" the primary. However, on restarting the computer, this resets to its initial setting of "clone of" the primary.
So I did a bit of reading and found something I could put in the command line:
Code: xrandr --output DVI-I-2 --right-of DVI-I-1
Which again fixes the problem, but only for that given session. On restart we are back to the same scenario. A bit more reading tells me that putting things in etc/rc.local executes them on start up so I shouldn't have to each time I turn on my computer. Except that putting it in there didn't do anything. While I am reasonably pleased with myself having learned as much as I did in this little exploration (previously, the only command line thing I knew how to use was apt-get), I am feeling pretty frustrated at this point.
Is there somewhere else I should be putting this other than (or in addition to) etc/rc.local? Do I need to put something other than xrandr thing in there to make it execute?
