Ubuntu :: Application, Places, System Gone From Panel?

Sep 10, 2010

I don't know if this is the result of an upgrade, software conflict or I did something I shouldn't have without even noticing. I was able to "Add" the main GNOME menu back by right clicking on the menu, etc. Now, Places and System are sub-menus of the main system menu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Main, System, Places Menus Missing?

Jan 19, 2011

I have 11.04 installed, Gnome 2.32.0 - life has been good until I responded as normal to the update manager this morning. Upon reboot noticed my main menu, system menu and places menu are gone. Other icons and stuff like power button remain on the top toolbar but again, no menus.Googling around I found solutions that were years old and/or did not work for me (like installing XFCE - which did nothing).

Ubuntu :: Can't Add Terminal, Places, System Etc To Panel?

Aug 13, 2010

I removed my main panel this morning, which meant I lost all the launcher icons like the Terminal, places, system, etc. I right-clicked and selected New Panel, but when I select Add to Panel, it doesn't offer me the ability to put these items back on. The list included Clock, Weather, Garbage and Desktop, but doesn't include the others. I can't relaunch the Terminal. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as without terminal or application access, obviously the my system functionality is pretty limited.

Ubuntu :: Dropdown Menu In Places On Panel Always Only Launches Banshee?

Aug 7, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid), GNOME 2.30.2. After some time of correct operation, my dropdown menu from "Places" in the GNOME Panel has gone wrong.

If I click Places and then click on any of the dropdown shown, Home Folder, Desktop, Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos, Downloads, before the horizontal line separator, Banshee launches. Those after the separator, Computer, Floppy and my Hard Drives, launch correctly.

I have tried restoring the Panel to its original setting with no luck.

Fedora :: Get Rid Of Recent Documents Under Places Menu On Gnome Panel?

Oct 18, 2009

There are measures to stop this in Windows even though there are still things you can't get rid of. Now on to my question, Why can't I edit the Places menu but I can edit the Applications and System menus. I really want to get rid of the Recent Documents menu header. I don't like things like that right up on front street. I am quite a stickler about privacy and one of the reasons I decided to try out linux is because I heard it was better in the sense of respecting privacy. But now I am seeing that you don't even have the ability to get rid of a tracking item such as Recent Documents. Quite disappointing.

I can understand tracking recent changes to the system but it is not necessary to track what you open or what you browse on the internet. Hence Firfox's ability to not store history and the clear cache, history, etc. on shutdown of Firefox. So Am I misinformed about the fact that linux does respect privacy? What kind of world are we coming to that it is necessary to track everything. Especially here in the U.S., I mean I'm thinking 1984 here lol. Anyway, how to remove these tracking features in Fedora. I mean in the sense of just stopping it. It sucks to have to go through and "clear" everything that tracks you every time you want to log off or shut down.

Ubuntu :: "Launcher & Menus" Panel Always Appears On Start Up?

Jul 28, 2011

version: 11.04, 32 bit, Gnome/Unity desktopThe "Launcher & Menus" panel (asking where to place launcher in relation to cursor/pointer), always appears on start up. Both in Unity and Classic desktops.As background, I originally set up the PC with Unity, but in frustration I returned to the classic desktop. But for some reason (I fiddled something somewhere), I get the above panel popping up in to top LH corner on start up of either desktop. It's annoying because I am preparing this PC for a hopeful convert for Windoze, so presentation needs to be goodI run Ubuntu 11.04 (both classic desktop) on two other PCs and this is not a problem.

Ubuntu :: Can't Access Folders From "Places" On Panel / Enable This?

Feb 19, 2011

Every time I want to access any subfolder, such as "Downloads", "Pictures", etc of my File System using "Places" on panel, a little window with the message "Error" and "File not found" pop up on my screen.

But if I access "Computer" from "Places", I can access the files I want from "File System".

Is there any way I can sort this out?

Ubuntu :: Main Panel Menu For "Places" - Defaults To Movie Player?

Feb 16, 2011

I don't know how this happened, been using Ubuntu for a few years now (but I still consider myself a newbie): Using 10.10. In the "places" drop down menu, when I click on locations such as Home, Documents, Downloads, etc, the Totem Movie Players runs, and tries to "open" the files in the respective folders --- instead of a Nautilus file manager window opening up.

How could this have happened? I looked in both Nautilus and Movie Player "Preferences", but was unable to find any customizable options that could be related.

Ubuntu :: Access Folder Through "Places" In Top Panel?

Dec 12, 2010

Whenever I try and open any of the files that are in "Places" instead of opening them it opens my Appearance preferences instead. It was happening with everything in the Home folder to start off with (so that's desktop, documents, music, videos, pictures and downloads) and now it's spread to the icons for my windows filesystem and Computer. When I click on the windows filesystem it opens Appearance preferences but it still mounts the drive so I can access my folders by clicking on the desktop icon that appears but I'd prefer if I could access them through "Places" in my top panel.

Ubuntu :: Customizing The System Drop-down Menus?

May 6, 2010

I just upgraded to 10.04, and now I can't figure out how to customize the color of the system drop-down menus (Applications > Accessories, etc.). After I made a change to the appearance, the colors became all washed out (as in the screenshot), and now I can't figure out how to darken the drop-down menus. Anybody have any tips? My ultimate goal is a darkened version of the new Ambiance theme (think XFCE Dusk colors with Ambiance buttons and layout).If it helps, I just upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04, and I've had KDE, XFCE, and GNOME all installed (and most of each set is still there, as I'm experimenting with each one).Also, the system tray is no longer home to a sound volume button, is it supposed to be that way? How to I get one back up there?

Ubuntu :: Applications / System Menus Are Empty

Sep 26, 2010

In trying to fix issues I have been having with my display, I seem to have inadvertently removed all applications from my menu, which is rather annoying. I'm not sure how. I've attached a couple of screenshots to display this.

When trying to access the 'Main Menu' option from the Gnome Control Center, I get the following error in the command line:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/alacarte", line 36, in <module>
File "/usr/bin/alacarte", line 32, in main
