Ubuntu :: Restoring Minimized Programs From The Memenu?

Most of the times I open a program (either Evolution or Liferea) from the MeMenu, it appears shifted below. By this I mean that, even if the window is maximized, it does not reach the panel, leaving a strip where one can see behind. But, when one tries to click on anything, it behaves like if the window was in place.So, in order to click on some area, I have to aim some 50px or so above it. Of course this is not very comfortable. Stangely enough, this does no happen if I get the focus of Evolution or Liferea by some other means, such as Alt+Tab or clicking on the sidebar.

SUSE / Novell :: Why Do Open Programs Disappear When Minimized In Kde
Anytime I open a window and then minimize it-poof it's gone! for instance when I minimize firefox or just about any other app it just disappears instead of landing into the panel as it usually does when minimized. Is this a KDE problem? I just tried to upgrade to 11.2/KDE on the net (that was a mistake.) I finally installed from Downloaded DVD (install version) and crawled back from upgrade hell.

Software :: Why Can't Xorg Show Live Previews Of Minimized Programs
My question is, why can't Xorg show live previews of minimized X clients? Mac OS X is the only OS that can, and I have no good idea why.

Ubuntu :: MeMenu Picture How To Add Profile Pic
I miss seeing my picture in the MeMenu. Now that I've upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10, I notice it doesn't display there anymore. Does anyone know how I can add this feature back in? Not sure why this was removed, I thought it looked nice with the picture there.

Ubuntu :: No Textbox In Memenu/indicator-applet
I have installed ubuntu 10.04 yesterday. I also placed the indicator-applet to my top panel.

My question is: It is lacking the textbox. I see every detail that should be there in the menu, except for the input-textbox. Can anyone tell me how I can get this back?

I've been searching the forums, but could not find a solution (nor anyone else having this problem, though I remembered someone else stating the same issue before I experienced it, but I couldn't find it back... must be murphy's law )

Ubuntu :: Latest Empathy Breaks MeMenu Notifications
I'm on 10.04.I was curious to see the new features implemented (mainly geo-location) in Empathy, so I added their PPA and did an update. After updating, the notifications for Empathy become separated from the MeMenu (separate icons, no 'Chat' option is specified when I click the MeMenu), although I can still update my status by clicking on my user name.Does anyone know how to integrate the new Empathy back into MeMenu? If not, how can I roll back to the previous Empathy version that works with MeMenu?

Ubuntu :: How To Restore "MeMenu"
Does anyone know how to get this back? I started using 10.04 this weekend and was playing around with the new "MeMenu" and removed it from the menu bar. Now I can't seem to get it back. Its not found when I try to add to the panel and it isn't part of the Gwibber app anywhere either.

Or is there a way to just restore the bar to its default? I lost my logoff/shutdown menu button on the far right when I did that too.

Ubuntu :: Starting GPodder Minimized?
I've installed gPodder and added it to my startup applications, but it opens up full screen when I start up Ubuntu. Is there a way to have it start up minimized? I'm thinking there's probably a command line option I can pass in, but I can't seem to find it.

Ubuntu :: Open Program As Minimized
I know it sounds a bit strange, but is there something that I can add to a start up command to make the program that is starting up be minimized. I know it sounds strange, but I want to have Evolution Mail open at start up, but be minimized. I know the command to open Evolution Mail is "evolution --component=mail" but how would I make the window starts out being minimized in the Launcher.

Ubuntu :: Restore Minimized Applications With Launchers?
i'd like to be able to restore minimized applications by clicking on their launchers like you can do when you have awn or dockey installed. but i'd rather not install awn or dockey since this is the only feature i want from them that the gnome panel doesn't already provide.

i found this thread:


which is from 2007. apparently a small application, "launcher-restore", was written to give program launchers the functionality i'm talking about--but that program is gone now--the attached deb file doesn't work at all.

so is there some other program that will do this now, a newer version of launcher-restore, or some even simpler way of setting things up the way i want them?

Ubuntu :: Shift Switcher Minimized Window?
I am using the Shift Switcher on Compiz to switch windows. Also i don't use any taskbar to show what apps are open or not. Minimized windows are simply "invisible" as it were. When switching, minimized windows are represented by their icons. Instead i would like to see them as a thumbnail (as with maximized windows). Can i make Compiz do that?

Fedora :: Can't See Minimized Windows?
On fedora 13 gnome, once I minimize a window, for example, a command terminal window, or a firefox window, I can't see it any more and therefore there is no way to get it back to normal size. I have to reopen that window.

OpenSUSE :: Can't See Minimized Stuff
I've been playing around with the cairo dock, and after moving the original dock around, when I minimize a window, it simply disappears. I've since gotten rid of cairo but the minimizing behavior hasn't returned.

How do I restore the original minimizing behavior, where you could see the programs in the panel?

Ubuntu :: Automatic Right Clicking / And Windows Disappear When Minimized
i don't know what happened, I was doing the ctrl+alt+fn thing to pan around my desktops, and i think i somehow assigned the mouse to automatically right click on its own whenever i move it or anything. This is really messed up. It's like a virus. Just writing this the right click window has come up about 20 times and there's now a dozen new folders on my desktop. How do I fix this? How do I go into controls and stuff?

Ubuntu :: Compiz - Opening All Minimized Windows In Taskbar?
Is there is a way in compiz to open all the minimized windows in the taskbar? Since I want to use the "scale" feature in compiz for all of the windows. As what you already know is that, the "scale" feature only works for the open windows not the minimized ones. So I want a way to open all the minimized windows with a shortcut(using compiz or any thing else) and then use the scale feature again.

Ubuntu :: Start Tomboy Minimized To Gnome Panel?
I'd like to start Tomboy (the sticky-note application) at start-up but have it minimized to the Gnome panel. I tried adding tomboy to System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications, but then Tomboy opens up in full-screen mode. Then I tried adding tomboy-panel instead, but that doesn't seem to do anything at all. What's the trick I'm missing?
