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 :: 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 :: 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?

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 :: 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 :: KK Minimised Windows Disappear

Feb 22, 2010

A google search on this problem (minimised windows disappear) shows a number of simple solutions. None of them work on my system: KK, Kubuntu, 64 bit.

The most often given advice is:" expect your taskbar is missing the "Window List" applet.To add it: Right-click on an empty area of the taskbar, choose "Add to panel", scroll down and add "Window List". "When I click on an empty area of the taskbar I see no option to 'Add to panel' The options are:

Add widgets (meaning unknown to me)Add Panel (which is NOT 'Add to panel'). This option does not appear to have any visible or useful result.

Ubuntu :: Installing Makes Windows BSOD - Avoidable?

Jul 10, 2010

Last month, I agreed to install Ubuntu on my sisters Toshiba NB 305. Ubuntu was fine, but somehow installing it and GRUB hosed both the XP partition and the recovery partition. The Windows splash screen would appear for a second or too, and then Windows BSOD'ed.

I managed to coax the recovery partition into resetting the netbook, and told my sister to be happy with XP for the moment because I had to study for exams.

But she still wants her Linux. So I was wondering if there was a way to ensure that the installation would be OK.

Ubuntu Installation :: Program Windows Disappear After A Second

Jun 6, 2010

I upgraded to 10.4 netbook remix on my Asus N10 with an Nvidia card. I normally don't use the card and to get rid of troubles don't install the driver. After update something went wrong with the driver and I can't fix it. When the PC finished his boot het ask to give the password for the default key ring as usual but the window disapears before i can change anything. So this one is no too bad as my password is very easy and I can do the job with switching windows and keying very fast the pwd.

But try to read your evolution mail in these circumstances. I tried to start in low graphics mode but didn't help. Finaly I installed a fresh version on a separate partition and asked to copy my Evolution and Firefox documents. He didn't, dn't know why and tryed twice. So far my fresh installation works well but I lost my mails and shortcuts. So.... I think the easiest would be to work from the new installation as on the old one even the terminal window disapears.

Ubuntu :: Application Windows Just Disappear Off Screen After A Random?

Jan 27, 2010

Have had 9.10 running for a while with no problems. Not long ago upgraded 1GB RAM to 2GB so I could run VirtualBox better. All worked fine until a few days ago, I ran the normal system update. Since then, all application windows just disappear off screen after a random? period of time.

I.e. I tried to check Software center and the window closed after getting to 5% download. Just tried the System download manager which got about 8 files into an update before logging off desktop and taking me to log in screen. I just tried Firefox and the toolbar icon was displayed while it was attempting to load, but then that disappeared.

Debian Multimedia :: 8.1 Cinnamon - Windows And Parts Of Panel Disappear

Sep 2, 2015

I installed a fresh new Jessie (8.1) with the Cinnamon environment a few days a go, and yesterday I started seeing a strange issue seemingly happening at random.

I'm not sure what I do to cause this, but every few hours all the text and some of the icons (launcher, notifications and some applications) on the panel disappear. Most icons in the menu also vanish.

I've just noticed that some windows also disappear, but instead of showing the window behind them, I see my background image (see attached image).

I can't interact with windows which I can't see, but I can move and resize them (they have no border to grab, but alt+middle mouse works).

I can get around the issue by restarting Cinnamon (Alt+F2, r), but that works only part of the time.

Dmesg shows nothing (most recent message was plugging in my mouse & keyboard).

I'm running this on a Lenovo X201 (which uses Intel HD graphics QM57) and an external monitor (dual monitor configuration)...
