Ubuntu :: Icons Disappeared Such As The Power Menus With The Name, My Clock And My Network Icon?
Aug 13, 2010
Yesterday some of my most important icons disappeared such as the power menus with the name, my clock and my Network icon.Now i have managed to get back the clock and power icons but not my network and amsn icons back and are the ones that
After a recent upgrade, the red power icon in the far right of the upper panel disappeared. In its place is a half obscured copy of my user name, which appears right next to my user name (along with the chat icon). The chat icon/user name is functional, as it is supposed to be, but the half obscured user name that replaced my shutdown/restart power icon is just a bug, and has no function. Not only is it unsightly, but I miss the power icon. Yes, I can right-click on the panel and add one, but it doesn't allow me to drag it all the way to the far upper-right corner, where it is supposed to be located... I found this post in another thread: sudo apt-get install indicator-applet-session, but it did nothing to solve my problem.. I'm running 64-bit 10.10, btw, if that makes any difference.
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx 32 bit version alongside my Windows OS.I wanted to enable my DHCP configuration in my modem.So I did what was to be done from Windows and when I switched to Linux, I found DHCP enabled connection not working in Linux and also the network manager icon had vanished from the systray.I have now switched off DHCP and wanted to revert back to my original settings but still no network manager icon is there.
I have linpus linux lite on my new aspire one netbook.I bought it three months ago and before some days the network icon has disappeared.I tried to run it from the settings, but nothing happened.I also saw that the net files are all deleted.
When the laptop boots I get a very brief message to say "wireless network available, click on icon". But it disappears in a second. I'm not clear whether my WL-140 card is in device wlan0 or wmaster0. Here's what lshw -C network says... *-network description: Wireless interface product: ISL3886 [Prism Javelin/Prism Xbow] vendor: Intersil Corporation physical id: 2 bus info: pci@0000:06:00.0 logical name: wmaster0 version: 01 serial: 00:0c:f6:14:a4:35 width: 32 bits clock: 33MHz .....
Ive had a few freeze ups on this system but the last time it affected the top panel.The wireless icon has disappeared to be replaced by an extra bluetooth icon.screenshot attached.Is there any kind of clean up utility (like tune up utilities in win)Also, any kind of log so I can trace this freeze up Iḿ getting.Ive only just got this laptop so dont know if it did it before although prev owner never mentioned it.
my problem is that the Applications menu is empty and Preferences and Administration no longer appear under the System menu.I'm running 11.04 and I use Ubuntu Classic because I prefer the GNOME interface. The other day I was trying out various audio/multimedia players so I was installing and uninstalling several programs with the Software Center.
I started to play a CD in Audacious when the system crashed. The screen went dark but the computer kept running. I ended up doing a hard reset. Everything booted up normally and everything seems to run fine except my GNOME menu is messed up. The Applications menu is empty and Preferences and Administration no longer appear under the System menu. (I realize I can get to these through System Settings but I want the menus back) Furthermore alacarte will not run so that I can edit the menu contents.
I've tried using one of the old menu versions in /home/dan/.config/menus but they are all outdated and I cannot edit them. It also doesn't bring back Preferences and Administration.I've tried reinstalling alacarte and that doesn't do anything.I've tried using other panel programs like Docky and AWN but I have the same menu problem.I also tried resetting the panels to defaults but that doesn't fix the problem.
All of a sudden all my drop-down menus in the upper left dissapeared (things like system, applications, bookmarks, etc.) though buttons/shortcuts and clock, etc. are still there though oddly spaced out.
I've installed Office 2007 under wine, and would like to add launchers for Word, Excel, etc to the Unity launcher bar.
So, I've created a launcher on the Desktop that will run Word with wine. I've changed the icon to the Word Icon and everything works great from the desktop. If I drag that launcher to the Unity bar, it adds it, but changes the icon to the springboard default icon that new launchers use. Please see attached picture.
As a side note, I am really starting to like Unity (puts on flamesuit), but it seems very easy to break the install of 11.04. I've had to reinstall 4 times now.
i did a fresh install of fedora 12 with gnome 2.28 i dont know what i did, but i only installed stuff from the standard repos. but since yesterday i have no more menues on the top of all gnome windows and programms the icontoolbars are there but not the menues above from all applications, only firefox got his toolbars and menue.
ubuntu 10.04, ff 3.6.3 with some addons installed.
how to reproduce: open firefox, download and install some plugins/addons that generate menu entries with an icon in front of them. e.g. "downthemall" (down them all)
there is however space for these icons in the menu. and I can see icons in the bookmark and history menus. (web page favicons)
these icons improve the usability greatly because they offer a visual guide to the menu not only to the item they belong to but also to other items because I know that the item I want is e.g. one above the green triangle.
I have a slightly impaired vision so this a far greater issue to me than you well sighted folks may think. Just put on some glasses with lots of fingerprints on them and you will see the difference.
It's been about 3 years since ive used ubuntu. Great changes have been made. My only beef is that I can't find the option to hide icons in menus, you know when you click applications and see the programs with icons beside them, I don't like that. There used to be an option to hide icons in menus in the appearance section. What happened to gnome?! it has changed so much in 3 years..
so im not sure what just happened but my power button at the top right just disappeared. thought it ok ill just add it back to the panel but the only thing is a power button that dose not give the option to log off or switch user. there is something for that but nether can be put back at the top right.now I am using Ubuntu 10.10 and I saw that 11.04 is out so then I thought that ill just update. but I this is my first update, and I dont know how it works. will all the stuff that I have done to this computer to make it work go away and I will have to do all that again. or will it be like the small updates where it just fixes things
I just installed ubiquity for ubuntu 9.10 via the terminal.Code:apt-get install ubiquity.Every thing went fine, no installation errors but I can't seem to find the icon in any of the menus. Any idea how I could get an icon there or is ubiquity a command line only program?
When I right-click somewhere and the pop-menu shows up with options like 'copy', 'paste' and so on it wasn't supposed to be icons in front of these items?Actually, a lot of applications like Firefox aren't showing icons on their menus
I had been using Amarok 1.4 with no problems, but somehow in trying to fix the 'Launching HTTP Cache' bug, I made the Amarok toolbar icons disappear and be replaced with an image of a page. The only thing I did was install qt3-qtconfig and systemsettings, then removed them because they were not able to help me fix the HTTP cache bug, and they also altered my pointer to KDE-style. After removal and a system restart, Amarok looks like the screenshot I took. how to get the icons back?
I recently had a problem that was bugging me for several days. I figured that I should probably make a post on it in case anyone else ran across thesame problem. My gnome desktop was not showing up after reboot, and everytime I booted, I had to kill nautilus to get it to come back.
Code: killall nautilus After looking around for a while, I found this post: http://www.linuxquestions.org
Like the title says my bookmark icons have disappeared and have been replaced with blank white pages:Initially I thought they would come back if i did a fresh install and imported the bookmarks, but when I reinstall chromium they are already there, and again without the proper icons.
I'm completely new to Linux. I'm having the hardest time trying to do the simplest things. I'm using Kopete and I was wondering if I can put the icon on the system taskbar by the clock? I can't drag it there, won't work. I also tried to right click the taskbar and open 'add new items' but Kepete doesn't show on the list.
Today I installed a fresh copy of F12 and I noticed that I have no icons in any menu of any application - Desktop, Nautilus, Firefox, Pidgin, OpenOffice - nowhere.I only have them in the Main Gnome Menu and that's it.Does any body know what can cause this problem and how to fix it?BTW,I've been using Fedora starting from F6 and I can claim that F12 is indeed one of the most awful release that I've seen I used to successfully upgrade to each next major release up to F11, but F12 made me completely reinstall my OS, cause there were tones of bugs after the upgrade including not working WiFi
I was trying to choose a set of icons in xfce's "Appearance" dialogue and then suddenly the panel disappeared and didn't show up even after rebooting the machine (I mean logging out and restarting). What should I do?
I installed Kubuntu 10.10 Trinity, ran the updates, installed a number of programs, and somewhere along the line all the device icons disappeared from the desktop. I didn't notice exactly when it happened because I couldn't see the desktop most of the time. They're all still checked in Configure Desktop / Behavior / Device Icons; I can check or uncheck whatever I want there, but it has no effect. How I can get them back?
After a recent upgrade I have lost the top right icon in the top panel - so I cannot Set Status, Lock Screen, Guest Session, Switch User ..... Restart, Shutdown. I have right clicked on the top panel and installed the Shutdown icon so I can shutdown but I have lost all the other functions including the 60secs countdown. Is there any way I can get the standard top right icon in the top panel?
