Ubuntu :: Minimizing WINE Apps Makes Them Disappear?

Oct 22, 2010

After installing Maverick 64 bit (clean install, used to be 32 bit Lucid) any applications I run in WINE disappear when I minimize them. They don't crash, they're just impossible to reach as they're no longer in task manager, they don't show up through alt-tab but I can see them if I run ps -x from a terminal. I tried with mIRC and the client is still responding, it'll still accept files with auto-get on so it's working fine, but the UI is gone

Ubuntu :: Minimizing Windows Makes Completely Disappear

Nov 18, 2010

When I minimize windows they completely disappear. Doesn't matter if its a program or my home folder, anything I open disappears when its minimized.I can run the system monitor and check running processes and they are still running. I just cant see them. All I can do is kill them with the system monitor.I can log on as another user and they work fine. It's just in one account. Is there a way to fix this, or to completely reset my desktop to the default settings? I know it's something I did but I can't find out where to fix it.

Ubuntu :: Windows Disappear Instead Of Minimizing

Jun 4, 2010

I'm running Kubuntu, updated to 10.04. After working OK, today Windows started disappearing whenever I click to minimize them. They're still running, but I have to go to System Monitor, locate the program in the list and click "Show Window." That's a nuisance.

I think this began after I tried to move panel icons to the right with an adjustable spacer. I've hunted all over the place for some setting to get windows to operate properly. The "Window Behavior" item in System Settings doesn't have anything. I removed the spacer and that didn't do anything, either.

Ubuntu Networking :: Ra73 Driver Swap On Makes USB Adapter Disappear?

Feb 8, 2010

I am using Ubuntu Incredible Ibex on a Lenovo T400 with a Hawking HWUG1 USB adapter. I was successfully capturing WPA handshakes good enough for Aircrack-ng. However they didnt satisfy Cowpatty.

The built-in wireless adapter on my Lenovo T400 appeared as wlan0. The HWUG1 USB adapter appeared as wlan1. The airmon-ng start wlan1 command configured the HWUG USB adapter as mon0. Things were okay but not great. I wanted to use Cowpatty and the Rainbow tables but my captures werent satisfactory, except for the ones on my own router five feet away. I even tried using a 3 foot omni 12 dB antenna

I started to suspect my drivers.I was using the drivers that came with Ubuntu Incredible Ibex. I saw the website [URl].. and followed the instructions carefully to install the rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3 driver. When I ran Airmon-ng start wlan1, I saw that the Hawking was indeed now rausb0 and using the rt73 driver.

When I ran Aireplay on my WIFI router to de authenticate myself I got 0/0 acks. Previously I was getting something like (63/66 acks).It also happened on other test routers. So I did some more reading and I was thinking the rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3.driver was incompatible with the Incredible Ibex kernel and Ubuntu. I found the site [URL].. and followed the instructions to install the rt73-cvs-daily driver. However I didnt install WICD.

After that, my HWUG1 USB disappeared completely as well as wlan1. It doesnt show up when I run the ifconfig command. However my built-in onboard wireless adapter shows up as wlan0. How can I bring back the wlan1 and my Hawking HWUG1 USB adapter? Furthermore how can I reinstate the original driver that I was using?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Moving Mouse Cursor To Right Edge Of Screen Makes It Disappear?

Apr 1, 2010

I have two monitors set up on my Asus N61J laptop, but have a weird problem:When I move the mouse to right-hand edge of the Left (Primary) screen, it disappears. To get it back, I have to either keep moving it to the next screen, or move it over something that will cause it to change shape.It also happens if I move it to the left-hand edge the Right (Secondary) screen. Anyone have any ideas as to how I can fix this? It's a little annoying, as it makes it hard to select the Logout/Shutdown/Status menu

Ubuntu :: Apps Disappear From 'startup Applications' List

Nov 8, 2010

I've been trying to add applications to my "Startup Applications" menu. Most of the time, they "stick," but sometimes simply disappear, either immediately or after a variable length of time (sometimes more or less immediately, sometimes after several restarts, or anywhere in between). I've noticed that, when they stop booting, their entry disappears from ~/.config/autostart, but changing permissions on the affected files (e.g., removing write access) doesn't seem to help.

Any suggestions? Re-adding the same things over and over gets frustrating after a while, and I can't figure out why these entries are disappearing.Currently running Ubuntu 9.10 on an HP Pavilion dv6000 with an Intel Centrino Core Duo processor and 2 GB of RAM.

Ubuntu :: Autodetection Of Network Printers Makes All Printers Disappear?

Jan 28, 2010

I've been using Kubuntu 9.10 for several months now. For most of that time, I configured and used with no problem several network printers.. a HP LaserJet 3015 at home connected to a Windows machine, and a Xerox Phaser 8560 at my coworking space connected directly to a router.

However, several weeks ago I was at the coworking space, requested a print from my web browser, and in the printer selection dialog, observed the list of printers expanding... some sort of autodetection of network printers was occuring, and multiple instances of the same printer were being offered, with slightly different names. Printing to these devices did not work.

Now, after a reboot, there are NO network printers available no matter what network I'm connected to. When I use the Kubuntu printer configuration tool and try to set up a new printer, it asks me to "Select a connection" to which the only option it gives me is "Other". When I put in an address for the printer it just cycles endlessly, never finding anything.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Print From Wine Apps / Resolve This?

Jan 24, 2011

I am unable to print from Wine applications (including Notepad) because Wine thinks I have no printers installed. I have a network printer and print-to-file both working fine in normal KDE applications. I did some looking around and found the following:http://www.witch.westfalen.de/Wine-H...intconfig.html
This is very old, and probably very out of date. I also had trouble following the examples. In any case I don't have anything called winerc or wine.conf. I just have a .wine directory.
Supposedly I should have registry keys for printers in Wine, so I looked where those are supposed to be. I have two keys in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetContro lPrintPrinters: (Default) and DefaultSpoolDirectory. Perhaps if I added the right key here I could get Wine to notice CUPS? I wouldn't begin to know what to put though.
http://www.winehq.org/docs/wineusr-g...s-to-configure claims that Wine should "just work" with CUPS. So much for that. It also says that if it doesn't work with CUPS it falls back to look in /etc/printcap. I have one of those, but it doesn't contain anything except the default comment telling me not to edit the file. Maybe if there's a way to regenerate /etc/printcap to contain the printers that show up in KDE, Wine would notice. Again, I have no clue how to do that.
I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 x64, and I'm using Wine 1.2, not Wine 1.0. All my packages are completely up to date.

OpenSUSE :: Running Win Apps Under Wine?

Jun 12, 2011

There are some apps for win that run on wine just with an ordinary install procedure. There are others that will never work at all. But there are also some that wine users claim to have made run by changing some specific configuration of wine, using some trick or even creating scripts on playonlinux.

So if I try to run an app on wine and it doesn't and I don't find any user documentation about some specific trick or config for that app what adjustments can I do to try to make it run? I mean, it's tiring and perhaps foolish to spend hours playing with every possible config in wine frontend without knowing what I'm doing. So what can I do to find out what libraries, configs, tricks or scripts are needeed to make an app run under wine if it didn't at the first try?

Debian Configuration :: 32 Bit Apps On Wine Cannot See System Fonts

Oct 23, 2015

I've just installed Debian 8.2 KDE 64bit, installed wine, and found that a 32-bit Windows program (Agent newsreader) could not see the linux system fonts. (This worked fine on Kubuntu 14.04)

Since this is the first time that I've installed Debian, I'm not sure if I'm missing something obvious or if this is an actual bug.

Steps to reproduce:
Fresh install of Debian 8.2 KDE 64bit.
apt-get install wine
wine wordpad # this is a small word-processor for wine that is supplied with wine
menu -> format -> font
all linux fonts are visible -- so far so good

Because I want to use a 32bit program, I now have to do this, I understand:
dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
apt-get install wine-bin:i386

But after that,if I run "wine wordpad" and look at the fonts, all the linux system fonts are gone. The only fonts visible are the nine that are built into wine (Courier, Fixedsys, Marlett etc..) So installing the i386 wine support seems to have broken something.

Software :: Running Windows Apps By Installing WINE?

Jan 26, 2011

I'm somewhat knew to Linux (CentOS), so WINE is completely foreign to me also. I'm immediately interested in TaxAct, which is how I learned about WINE. My question is whether my system will maintain the same stability that Linux is known for, and whether my CentOS build will keep it's current RHEL integrity after I install WINE, and probably other Windows Apps. Your experience with WINE is coveted.

Ubuntu :: [Natty] Nasty Bugs After Minimizing / Fix It?

Apr 13, 2011

I'm on the Ubuntu Natty Narwhal and on a netbook. Hardware details are given on the signature.

Well, I'm trying to learn how to use Unity, but this bug is freaking me out. When I minimize any window, the menus are kept on the top bar 'till I click on anything else (or on the desktop), also I can't recover the window till I click on anything else (It's like it haven't been minimized, just hidden).
After restoring the window, if I try to maximize, the window borders will be maximized, but the actual window won't. I'll be attaching pictures for better understanding.
Also, if I try to un-maximize, the Close-Minimize-Maximize and the menus will be unavailable (Visible, but like they didn't exist, cant even move the window around)

If I maximize and THEN minimize, then it goes crazy. When I recover the screen, it will look ok, but if I un-maximize, there'll be a huge ugly black border around the window that follows it, no matter where I push it around.

Couldn't find anything related. I'm using the Natty Beta 1 (installed yesterday thru updates). I'm also using the latest Intel drivers (from intellinuxgraphics.org). Everything else works fine.

Hope there's a fix out there. Should I fill a bug report?
