Ubuntu Multimedia :: Amarok Jams Unity Side Bar - Force Bar To Hide?

Jul 12, 2011

I find that when I use Amarok my Unity side bar gets jammed in position, and won't hide away. This is really irritating as the play button is under the bar so I can't click it! The side bar is stuck in position whether Amarok is maximised, in a window or minimised, or even if I close Amarok and just leave it playing (Amarok isn't even listed on the Unity bar in this case). The only way to make the side bar vanish is to completely quit Amarok. Is there anything I can do to force the bar to hide?

Ubuntu :: Unity And Gnome 2 Side By Side?

May 6, 2011

I have to say that I don't mind Unity all that much! Certainly not as much as I had expected to, given what I had been reading before the upgrade from Maverick. I'd like to go on playing around with it. However, I would also like to continue to be able to use Gnome 2 sometimes, with Compiz and Emerald, as I have done in the past.

The trouble is that whenever I log into the "Ubuntu classic" desktop, it loads compiz, complete with the Unity plugin. Then I have to disable the Unity plugin manually every time, and do the same (with no panel) whenever I log into Unity.

Is there a way I can configure it to only load the Unity plugin in the Unity desktop, but not in the Gnome 2 desktop?

Ubuntu :: Unity - Mythtv Or How To Hide Unity Launcher

May 8, 2011

Just moved to Ubuntu 11.04 with unity and only have one problem...For most of my desktop needs I prefer to have the Unity Launcher up all the time (fullscreen apps don't cover it), and have set this option with ccsm.

However, when I watch mythtv, it is also under the launcher (and the top panel as well). How can I force mythtv to cover the launcher?
What I really need is a keyboard shortcut to hide the launcher, but the only shortcut is for "show launcher". (I guess the devs assumed everyone would want it hidden by default).

This, by the way is not my usual way for viewing mythtv. I have a projector attached to the desktop PC and it doesn't get a Unity Launcher by default (in Twinview), so no probs. However, occasionally I want to watch something on my computer screen, and that is when this issue arises.

Ubuntu :: Hide Partitions/Drives From Nautilus (side Panel)?

May 29, 2010

I have 2 drives formatted NTFS, which I'm mounting with /etc/fstab to ~/Movies/ and ~/Music/ and an EXT4 partition on my primary drive for games, mounted to ~/Roms/ and I would like for these drives to NOT show up in the side panel of nautilus.

I've been doing some looking around, and what I've found so far is that supposedly if you mount a partition/drive somewhere besides /media/ nautilus will ignore it. I'm finding this not to be the case, and it's driving me bonkers. here's my fstab:

Code:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

Ubuntu :: Force The Title Of A Window To Display On The Right Side

Jan 24, 2011

I have been messing about with my themes lately and was wondering if it was possible to force the title of a window to display on the right side and have the buttons on the right. I'm already aware of using gconf-edit to change the order and position of the buttons but I can't seem to figure out how to move the title.

Ubuntu :: Move The Side And Or Top Task Bars As Well As Change There Properties (auto Hide) ... 11.04

Aug 14, 2011

Is there a way to move the side and or top task bars as well as change there properties (auto hide). I know how to add programs to the side bar but can't figure out how to change the top bar menus. When I ran 32bit thru a windows vm I had a top bar where I could access the programs and no side bar. I liked it better than the 2 bar setup in my 64bit wubi install. Can it be changed?

Ubuntu :: Unity Launcher Won't Hide

May 9, 2011

I've just installed Ubuntu 11.04 and have come across a strange bug, where after using Ubuntu for a while, the launcher suddenly appears and will not hide. This occurs when my mouse is no where near the launcher. I have a duel screen display.

This is very annoying as the launcher appears above the windows I am working on as shown in the screenshot:

I have tried changing the launcher hide options in ccsm but it doesn't seem to make any difference. At the moment it is set to autohide.

Ubuntu :: Unity Bar On Side And Top Disappeared?

Apr 30, 2011

I just upgraded to 11.04 today, and was playing around with the compiz-fusion settings. The first thing I checked was the fade to desktop box, and that froze up my computer. I let it sit for a little bit, but eventually got bored and just turned off my computer via the power button. When I started it up, both the tool bar on top and the launcher on the side had disappeared, and I don't have a clue how to get them back.

Ubuntu :: Bug In Unity Side Bar - Dodge Windows

May 2, 2011

The unity sidebar is supposed to dodge windows according to the default, and according to the settings in the unity prefs in compiz. This is not the case, as can be seen in this screenshot. Any idea what this could be caused by? It's sporadic when it shows up, but when it happens it does it until I reboot.

Ubuntu :: Unity Launcher Doesn't Hide And Icons Will Not Re-size

May 8, 2011

The Compiz Setting page for Unity will not let me set the launcher to autohide or other hiding option, and the Experimental page will not let me reduce the icon size. The lack of hiding is another as the left edge of windows can disappear under the the Launcher.

Ubuntu :: Can't Hide The Launcher In Unity 3D - Stays On Top Of Running Program

May 23, 2011

I can't hide the launcher in unity 3D. In 2D, it works fine, hides when i open a program, looks normal, everything. In 3D, it stays on top of whatever program I'm running. What I've tried Reinstalled unity 2D. (apt-get remove, apt-get install) For whatever reason, when I log into 3D without 2D installed, it looks like gnome, but the screen is garbled, the images disappear, menus come up as plain black squares, i literally can't even open a program. Once I install unity 2D, 3D works fine, but I can't hide the launcher. Messed around with CCSM. I tried each option under hide launcher in unity plugin (never, autohide, dodge windows, dodge active windows). None of them change anything. Updated everything through update manager (last night actually). Both 2D & 3D look and work fine, no lag or sluggish behavior. All of the effects look normal. I just can't get rid of the big launcher covering up everything I do! I've just been using 2D, although I would like to use 3D.

Ubuntu :: Enabled Desktop Cube In Unity - Side / Top Bar Disappeared

Apr 30, 2011

I just upgraded to unity and everything is fine. Then I accidentally enabled Desktop Cube and Cube Rotation. Suddenly, the top part of windows that you normally use to drag the window or close it etc. started disappearing. In a panic, I rebooted. Upon reboot I found myself in an even bigger mess than I could have imagined. Not only did this fail to fix the problem previously mentioned, it also caused the sidebar and the ubuntu bar at the top to disappear. Desktop icons still show, and my cursor is fully functional, but other than that, my system is unusable.

Ubuntu :: Unity - Unable To Resize Launcher Icons Or Set To Auto-hide

May 2, 2011

I recently upgraded to 11.04 and I've been tweaking Unity to get the desktop just the way I like it. I've come across two minor problems though:

1. When I tweak the icon size settings in the Unity tab of CCSM, the icons do not change size; they remain at the default "48" setting regardless of what I type in.

2. When I set the Unity launcher to auto-hide (also in the Unity tab of CCSM), it stays at the default "dodge windows" setting.

Are there any workarounds to change these settings when tweaking them in CCSM's interface does not work? (Or is there some trick I don't know to get CCSM to work properly?)

Ubuntu :: Unity - Hide The Top Panel Or (better) Remove It Completely (I Can Live Without Global Menu)

May 2, 2011

To make Unity useful for me I need to make some changes. I wonder if it's possible to:

1. Hide the top panel or (better) remove it completely (I can live without global menu).
2. Make the Unity Launcher work like a panel - so it won't be possible to move windows behind it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unity Launcher Doesn't Hide Itself Anymore / X After Package Upgrades

May 31, 2011

I've upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 some weeks ago and after some minor tweaking everything has been working fine. But all of a sudden, it seems after some package upgrades, I'm experiencing strange behavior: The first thing I noticed is that after reboot the default application that should be kept in the Unity Launcher have all disappeared. The unity launcher doesn't hide itself anymore. The unity launcher does not react to changes I make via the 'System Settings'->'compizConfig settings manager'->'Ubuntu unity plugin' menu (icon sizes in launcher, hiding method, etc.). Even after logout/login or reboot the changes aren't applied, although the corresponding settings in the configuration menus remain changed.

One application that used to work as a charm started giving the following error on startup: The program 'VESTA' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'. (Details: serial 489 error_code 3 request_code 138 minor_code 4) Since yesterday everything was still working properly and today I get this strange behavior, it seems that something must have changed in between. The only changes on the system in the last 24 hours are the upgrades of the following packages:

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Live CD: Force Classic Mode Even If Unity Will Work?

May 2, 2011

Is there any way when booting the LiveCD of Ubuntu 11.04 to force the use of classic mode, even if the computer meets the requirements to use Unity and would otherwise start Unity? Is there a kernel parameter that would do this? In searching, all I can find is the selection during login, but this seems to only show up after a full installation, I want to do this in the Live CD environment.

Ubuntu :: Get The Pop-up Text Balloons From The Unity Below It When Move The Mouse Over To The Left Side Of The Screen

Oct 28, 2010

I am running 10.10 Netbook Edition. I added Terminal Server Client to the Unity Menu and I typically run it in Full Screen mode to manage serveral windows based servers. The problem is that TSC displays perfect in full screen (unity tool bar hidden) but when i move the mouse over to the left side of the screen i get the pop-up text balloons from the unity below it. I cannot click on any items along the left edge of the remote desktop window including the windows start key. I want to confirm if this is a bug? and how to report it if so.

General :: Ubuntu - Play Two Or More Videos Side By Side In A Synchronized Fashion

May 10, 2010

I have two (or more) video files that I want to play side by side. I could do that simply by opening them in two seperate windows, but that would also seperate all the controls (play/pause/forward/...). I want to play them in a synchronized fashion so that pause/forwarding/... works on both videos simultaneously so that they always stay at the same timecode and they don't go out of sync. How would I accomplish that in Linux?

This is needed for viewing only, so compositing them into a new video file first should be avoided if possible, but if there isn't an easy way to do that, I welcome answers doing it with composition as well.

Ubuntu :: Make New Icons Automatically Add To Right Side Instead Of Left Side Of Desktop?

Dec 18, 2010

If a file gets created in the user's Desktop folder, or if a drive is added to the machine and a Desktop icon is correspondingly created, they will by default appear on the left side of the desktop (unless, in the case of the latter, the specific drive has been created before and dragged to the right side, in which case GNOME will remember to put it in the same place).

Because I have a terminal window embedded onto my Desktop in the top left corner and occupying most of the screen), I keep my icons on the right side of the Desktop instead of the left (Mac style) - Any time I add a new drive or a file is sent to the Desktop, however, I have to kill the terminal window to be able to click on the icon, then drag it back to the right side, then restart the terminal.

Is there any way to tweak GNOME so that these icons are added from the top right corner and down instead of from the top left, automatically?

Ubuntu Installation :: Setup A Dual Boot System With XP Running Side By Side On Thinkpad T41?

Jan 28, 2010

have been trying to setup a dual boot system with ubuntu and XP running side by side on my Thinkpad T41.tried it a few times and always causes the same problem. i have 40 gig HDD, on which i create a 13 gig NTFS partition and leave the rest as free space. then install XP on the NTFS partition. no problems.

then i boot from the ubuntu disk (9.10 Karmic) and install using the "use free space" option at the partition section. ubuntu installs ok, and boots fine from GRUB 2.0. BUT when i select the XP option from GRUB's list, it starts to boot XP, i get the standard XP loading screen for three seconds and then it crashes to a blue screen critical problem, and restarts the system. when i then boot from the xp cd and go into recovery mode CHKDSK will not recognise the disk, and DISKPART shows one HDD at 35 gig which it cannot access.

this means i cant run FIXBOOT and get my xp install running again. every time i do this process it produces the same problem. tried at first with xp installed on whole HDD, and reducing the xp partition size. killed XP. then tried ubuntu first and xp second - but this caused the same inaccessible disk problem - xp would not recognise the partitions and would not install. so i slipstreamed my XP install disk to SP2 hoping this would make it recognise the partitions, but no luck there. so had to format all and repartition the 13 gig NTFS for xp. installed xp again without difficulty but ubuntu install killed my xp in the same way.

Ubuntu Installation :: Side By Side Upgrade - Copying APT Repository?

Jun 5, 2011

I'm wondering how much of my currently installed packages I can transfer to a new system...I have a HDD split in two. I have 10.4 on one half (/dev/sda6) - my working system for the last year or so since my last upgrade - and I have just installed 11.04 on the other half (/dev/sda. I wanted to check out the new version rather than upgrading. note I have my home folder and all stored data on other drives (zfs mirrored disks) - the boot disk is mostly OS related... I can overwrite /dev/sda8 with impunity as long as /dev/sda6 is intact....

What I want to do is capture the wide variety of packages I have installed on the old version and install them onto the new system - without using the dist-upgrade mechanism... I've had it fail too many times leaving me with a complete rebuild being required... is this (partially) possible or have too many core packages changed? I was especially thinking of something like [URL]

to obtain the list:

dpkg --get-selections | awk �$2 ~ /^install$/ {print $1}� > installedpackages

to reinstall:

cat installedpackages | xargs sudo aptitude install -y

another path would be to clone the entire /dev/sda6 onto /dev/sda8, boot into the duplicate and dist-upgrade that

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing 9.10 Side By Side With Kubuntu 9.04?

Mar 31, 2010

I did a search but for this topic and I thought it would be discussed quite a bit, did not get any results. Maybe I did not use the correct words? Anyhow, I am running Kubuntu 9.04 and wish to switch to Ubuntu Karmic 9.10. I do still want to keep Kubuntu 9.04 as a boot up option temporarily in case I have major issues with Ubuntu. Ill also need to know how to get rid of Kubuntu after Im sure all is well with Ubuntu. Finally, there are a ton of boot options (different kernels Ive upgraded to) in Grub when Kubuntu boots up. How do I get rid of those? I also have a Windows XP partition that I boot into occasionally.
