Ubuntu Networking :: Lost Desktop Icon For Mounted Network Share

Jan 19, 2010

I have suddenly lost the desktop icon (of a hard drive) for a mounted network share. It is funny because, I have other network mounts which share the same server, and there icons are appearing, and this particular share just does not show up with the icon, even if I try mounting it different locations in the filesystem. Any ideas. I really like those cute icons on my desktop.

Or better said what is the path to removing the symbolic link, I cannot find the symbolic links in the desktop directory. It is empty, I do not see any symbolic links under /home/test/Desktop?

Software :: .desktop Icon Is Not Displayed / Icon Is Not Working In Menu?

Aug 2, 2009

I'm trying to add .desktop file for my application but I'm stuck with very strange problem.I created 48x48 icon for my program called etmmanager.png.I created .desktop file according to specifications:

Code:
[Desktop Entry]
X-SuSE-translate=true
Categories=Application;Utility;X-SuSE-TimeUtility;
Comment=ETM Manager for time logging
Exec=etmmanager
code....

My problem is that icon is not working in menu! I can find my program in Utilities->Time->ETM Manager and this is what I wanted, but there is no icon for the program.

It starts working if I specify absolute path in etmmanager.desktop file like
Code:
Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/etmmanager.png
About my system - Opensuse 11.1 KDE 4.2

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Network Icon Shows "lock" Icon When Trying To Connect

May 16, 2010

3 computers in the house run various windows based programs and everything is fine with them connecting to the internet as far as putting in the security password to log in and get online.My old back up computer that I use in the basement that has Ubuntu 9.10 was working fine with the secured network situation up until today.I booted up the computer this morning and it automatically connected as it typically does and I was reading some email and then the computer froze, which on rare occasions it does.

Upon reboot I got a window that asked for the password for the Network Manager Applet which I supplied and then it asked for the password for the secured internet connection which I supplied.It would not connect. After numerous tries of disabling the wireless and enabling the wireless and entering the Network Manager Applet password and the secured internet password I still get no connection.

I notice that when it is trying to connect, the window comes up on the screen that shows that there is reception from the modem, but there is also a little "lock" icon like I'm locked out of the connection.I finally found a way to get rid of the Network Manager Applet password problem but that still didn't alleviate the connection problem.

Ubuntu :: Desktop Icon Moves?

Oct 31, 2010

silly little question here, but it has been bugging me for months.I have my desktop icons arranged in a certain way, as I'm sure 99% of computer users do. I like to have all the disks in one row. However, everytime i boot up, my external USB device is moved down a few rows. interestingly, it's always in the same spot.it's just that it is always in the same incorrect spot.

Ubuntu :: Add A New Icon To Starter Without Using The Desktop?

Aug 6, 2011

i just installed eclipse, the newewst version from the developer website of course, because the one out of the software center is more than outdated.

Now i have the problem that i don't have any icon in the starter. When i start eclipse i can right click on the icon and make it stick to the startet forever but it has no icon and i can't change it.

So my question is now: How do i add one to the starter? And i don't want to use the desktop right clicking and create a new starter variation of the solution. Firefox has no .desktop file for it's icon in the starter either.

P.S.: For the futurue version a right click on the starter->add or right click on and icon->edit

Ubuntu :: How To Get Icon On Desktop That Will Give You Shutdown Men

Jan 4, 2010

Searched forever on how to get an icon on the desktop that will give you the shutdown menu. Every post I found said it wasn't possible, but it can be done (and very simply too)!FYI, this was done in Karmic (9.10)

1. Right click on desktop and select "Create Launcher..."
2. Give it a name and in the command field put "gnome-session-save --shutdown-dialog"

I also found the icon "usrshareiconsHumanityactions48applicat ion-exit.svg" to be well suited to replace the standard launcher icon.

Ubuntu :: How To Change Show Desktop Icon

Jun 17, 2010

I hate the purple "Show Desktop Icon" in Lucid and I finally figured out how to change it:
1) sudo apt-get install wmctrl
2) Create the following script and proceed as directed within the script's comments:
#!/bin/sh
# GLD's Show Desktop Button script. Here's how to do it.
# sudo apt-get install wmctrl
# Right click on the panel and select "Add To Panel".
# Choose "Custom Application Launcher".
# Use the file name of this script for the Command.
# Use whatever icon that you want. The generic Ubuntu Show_Desktop_Button icon is located here:
# /usr/share/gnome/help/user-guide/C/figures/show_desktop_button.png

if [ -f /tmp/toggle_show_desktop_$USER ]thenwmctrl -k off
rm /tmp/toggle_show_desktop_$USER elsewmctrl -k on
touch /tmp/toggle_show_desktop_$USERfi
