Ubuntu :: Parts Of Windows Staying On Screen

Jan 11, 2011

So I have Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit, and I'm having strange problems with parts of windows staying up on screen after I close them. Check the attached files to see what I mean. I have Visual Effects turned off, and I've tried removing compiz altogether, but I still see this happen every once in a while.

Ubuntu Installation :: Parts Of Keyboard Freeze / Keys Do Not Response In Kubuntu & Windows 7 Login Screen?

Jul 12, 2011

I cannot use several keys (1,`, q, a, z & Esc) on my keyboard.I have just installed Kubuntu 11.04, AMD64 version via Wubi. Everything went well w/o any errors. At 1st boot, I also logged in w/o errors, and then tried some apps for Office & Network and shut down. The keyboard was still alright at that time. However, The problem started on the 2nd boot after the installation. Those keys do not response in Kubuntu & Windows 7 login screen and even in my PC's BIOS setup.

My laptop model is Dell Lattitude E6410, core i5, Intel HD Graphics, WD HDD 160GB. And I installed on the other partition, not my Windows one.

OpenSUSE :: Unable The Top Parts And The Borders Of Windows?

Aug 4, 2011

Is there a way to enable the top parts and the borders of windows in openSUSE to be partially transparent? If so, I'd be grateful if someone told me how. Like in this image, the top part where it says "Mozilla Firefox" and the border of that window are all partially transparent (yes, I know that's Windows, lol). I'm running 11.4 KDE.[URL]..

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)...

Ubuntu :: Accessibility Settings Not Staying Enabled?

Feb 7, 2010

I use mousekeys for clicking/double clicking etc - this feature works great in Ubuntu, but I have recently switched to Xubuntu and MouseKeys seems to be turning itself off at random times. I haven't yet uncovered any rhyme or reason as to when or why this happens. I turn on mouse keys and at random times during computer usage mousekeys just turns off.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Not Staying Connected

Feb 18, 2010

My mom has ubuntu 8.04.2, and it does not stay connected on the wireless usb cards. I tried 2 different ones, 1 azio and 1 is something else. But both get connected, but they die out after awhile. I am at work typing this, so I will probably try to move my router up higher or something, but it is weird it cuts out like every 15-30 minutes, and it starts at like 4 bars.

She is running it out of a live DVD( I Know, you shouldnt use a DVD as your main OS) but she only needs the internet, and uses google docs to save stuff or a USB stick. Anyone know what might be the cause of this disturbance in the connection. It is a cable connection, and the main modem is in my room, and we got a netgear router( maybe the problem?). I tried the same exact system/live dvd environment at my work place and it held connection pretty good, but I believe it did disconnect a few times as well.

Ubuntu Networking :: Staying Connected To Wi-fi With Laptop?

Jun 4, 2010

I am relatively new to Ubuntu, and Linux, and I am having a problem with it that I was hoping to get fixed. Whenever I try to connect to my home wi-fi network, on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, it keeps disconnecting and reconnecting...which makes it really hard to download various things. It works just fine whenever I used "shudders" Windows Vista but whenever I try to use it on Ubuntu, it won't work properly. The router I bought, to replace my old, broken one, was Linux compatible, or at least that's what it was advertised as. The laptop is an HP G70 and the method I used to download Ubuntu was the Windows Installer.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Software Center Not Staying Opened

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Not Staying Connected?

Sep 1, 2011

I have Hughesnet (which sucks by the way, don't get it, I hate contracts). The FAP states that i can only download 375MB or it shuts me down, however, from 2 to 7 AM you can download all you want. so naturally i use a download scheduler. The only problem is that at night when i shut my laptop lid it disconnects from my router.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting And Staying Connected To Wifi

Jan 27, 2011

I've noticed that switching to Ubuntu about 6 months ago has made it noticeably more difficult to use the free wifi at my school. When I had Windows 7 on the same laptop, it was much easier to establish and maintain a connection. I know it's not the hardware. My question is: is there some security setting that makes it difficult to use public wifi on Ubuntu? Also, I don't have this problem at home on my WPA2 home wifi network.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Internet Not Staying Connected?

Feb 22, 2011

Ubuntu :: Programs (Abiword) Not Staying Open On Launcher?

Jun 16, 2011

I've found that Abiword, which I prefer to Libre Office, when minimised does not remain arrowed on the launcher in 11.04, so it effectively can't be minimised. Can it be made to do this? I've clicked a few icons on the launcher like Brasero's and Synaptic's and found that they still all behave properly but I'm guessing there are other programs that have the Abiword glitch.

Debian :: Battery Icon Staying At 100%?

Jun 22, 2011

I've recently installed Squeeze on my laptop. All was fine (except for a small change I needed to make to the GRUB code in order to install and boot it) and I find the OS easy to use. I am sure I will be using it for a long time! I might even change my desktop over to Squeeze as well - I'm using Linux Mint 10 at the moment.I have found just one minor problem: the battery icon continuously shows 100% full, even when the indicator on the laptop is showing that it needs recharging - after about two hours' use.This has not happened before:although the laptop is about two years' old, I have had this battery for only a month, so it has not yet done much work!

Fedora :: Pulseaudio Not Staying On Task?

Dec 5, 2009

I'm getting increasingly aggravated with tis so I figured I would ask and see if there are any insights on this.

I'm currently running F12 on a Dell XPS m1330 laptop. Everything is going great with the exception of pulseaudio. Rather than using the internal mic and speakers I'm using external (usb) Bose companion speakers and and external mic that is integrated into my Microsoft Lifecam Cinema webcam.

Now, when these work, they're spot on. No issues at all. HOWEVER, pulseaudio frequently disregards them and tries to use something else (the internals) or just stops using them. Nothing crashes, nothings broken, they just get "deselected". This happens when I back out of a game or program, log out and login, etc. I then have to jump through a series of hoops to get it configured back for the "correct" setup.

Debian Multimedia :: MATE Applets Not Staying Put

Sep 15, 2015

I recently installed 8.1, the Gnome Classic DE isn't anything near worth using now. What happened to The Gnome Classic that I know and love? I don't mind MATE too much, if only the applets I put in the panel would stay put between logins instead of manifesting wherever The OS decides IT wants them instead of where I placed and locked them.

I'm looking for a way to get back the Gnome Classic I know and love from Wheezy (first choice), or get the applets in MATE to stay where I put them (second choice).

OpenSUSE Install :: Staying At Run Level 7 - No More Processes To Run

Jun 21, 2011

On my fresh installed 11.4: I boot the desktop entry in GRUB, and it's doing a fast boot. It loads INIT and switchs to runlevel 7. Then the comment:
Code: init: No more processes left
Or something like that. after a CTRL+ALT+DEL and a press on enter during the driver load, it all works fine. Is that just a standard fault, or should I do something? If so, what?

Ubuntu Networking :: Staying Connected To Wireless Network With Multiple Access Points

Oct 15, 2010

I can connect to my school's wireless network using the standard network manager, but often (not always) it repeatedly disconnects and reconnects every few minutes. Occasionally it also prompts me for the security information again (even after it previously connected successfully).

By running iwconfig when it's on the fritz, I can see that it's often switching access points for the network - which is what I think is causing the problem. It disconnects and reconnects even when the signal strength for the current AP is fine, and it will often switch to an AP with a weaker signal strength.

$sudo lshw -C network

Ubuntu :: (Grub - Windows 7 - Unknown Filesystem) - Screen Goes Blank And Screen On-button Begins To Blink

Jan 26, 2011

The day started as usual until I got the very bright idea to install Ubuntu. A new OS along side W7, that sounded great. I checked some guides on the Internet, it was all very straight forward. Install it and Grub will show you the OS:es when you boot up. I installed Ubuntu, rebooted. After the BIOS messages the screen goes blank and my screen on-button begins to blink, as if trying to find a signal, I press enter, it reboots instantly. After BIOS messages I get to a screen that says "GRUB error: uknown filesystem grub rescue>"

I've looked through everything here and nothing works. I've tried to fix the mbr-thingy using Windows Repair and even though it says "one partition was updated with new boot-thingy" when I reboot, I get into that very same grub rescue. I think my setup has something to do with it. I run RAID0 (2x360Gb hard drives), first having C: at 50Gb and then the rest as F: for programs and such. What I did was that I shrunk the F: part and then used that as partition for Ubuntu. Also please have a look at these screenshots, my partitiontables and such seems completely wacky to the raid: Where should the boot-loader go? I'm very, very new at this. I've had Ubuntu Netbook remix on my netbook for a time but still treat me as an utter beginner.

Ubuntu :: Run-parts Not Working?

Jun 13, 2010

I have a very dumb questions regarding run-parts utility. I've created few shell scripts, chmod them to be executable, placed them into one particular directory and tried to run them using run-parts utility like this

run-parts dir_name However it doesn't seem to be working or I might just be missing out something. I have even tried different options like --test or --list - NONE of them produced any output. If I run each of the script manually they all work just fine. Is this is a known bug or somethng ?? or am I really missing out something...how are the /etc/crontab entries then being executed when the run-parts doesn't seem to be working on such a simple case ? ps: I noticed one interesting thing though...when I run run-parts like this: run-parts --list --regex 'some_regexp_patern' dir_name -> the output actually produces a list of the files whose file names match the given regexp pattern .

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Nvidia Twin View Config Not Staying After X Restart/reboot?

Jan 16, 2010

When I set up Twin View in the nVidia config tool (as either a regular user or as root), it only lasts until I log out and log back in (i.e. restart x) or until I restart the machine. In either case once I get to the log in splash screen again, it is only operating on one monitor, and when I log in I have to reconfigure in order to get Twin View back. How can I get the configuration to stay?

More info below:

I just installed opensuse 11.2 on an AMD 64 bit 3800. It has an nVidia GeForce 7600 GS card. I installed the nVidia driver no problem and can access the nVidia config app as a regular user or as root. Both access via KDE run level 5. That is, in a GUI desktop environment. I set up Twin View fine (it is kind of clunky process, but it does recognize my monitor resolutions fine) and click apply and I get the twin view I want. I clicked on save x config but all it does is bring up a file save dialog with a 'browse' button. Isn't this supposed to automatically know where the X config file is and update it? If it isn't, what file am I supposed to look for to save over? I looked in /etc/X11 and only found the following files:

Ubuntu Installation :: Cant Boot Windows 7 / Getting A Black Screen And Windows Does Not Load?

Mar 21, 2011

i have just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a pre installed windows 7 system. Ubuntu is working really well but the only problem is that when I try to boot into windows,

I get the windows sign and then I get a black screen and windows does not load. It seems to be an easy problem to solve because I can actually boot windows 7 in

safe mode with no problems at all! The problem is there when I try to boot windows 7 normally. To be honest I only need windows for a project that uses MSQL server.
