Ubuntu :: Restoring Minimized Programs From The Memenu?
Jun 8, 2011
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.
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.
I have upgraded to 10 from 9 on my netbook and am considering downgrading. I now have screen size issues, my minimised programs disappear and my movie software will not work. I had no problems at all with 9.
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.
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 )
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?
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.
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.
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.
Is it just me or does Eclipse disappear when it is minimized. I only installed Ubuntu today so maybe I'm just missing something lol. I was just doing a bit of coding and now I can't find it after minimizing it
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?
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?
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.
This is a new box. Just finished installing the OS. I was now fiddling around to setup the box and found following problem;Minimizing the webpage won't sink it to the bottom bar, just closing it. (including the text editor)Immediately after installation I don't have this problem. Now on clinking the "min" tab of the webpage/text editor I can't find them on the bottom bar as tab. Please advise how to fix this problem.
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?
the theme that i am using is dark and when i have application minimized and need attention like aconversation window or something and someone send something to me it blink in a gray color which is not easy to notice and i was thinking to change that to a bright orange or something... so is that possible to do without changing the theme?
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?
I'm putting a program in my startup applications that is completely GUI, with no command line options. The program is Calibre, if anybody is curious. Is there any way to start this program minimized? Gnome, Lucid, x64
Is there anyway that the Workspace Switcher can show Minimised Windows.I can see Maximised Windows OK but can't see if I have any minimised unless I do the Alt Tab move then they show up in the centre of my screen.
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.
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?
I have a problem and I don't understand how it started... When I minimize windows, they disappear beyond my desktop not leaving the button to maximize them again on the lower panel... I have no idea how to get the minimized windows to be stored on the lower panel...
It just hit me that I'd minimized a bunch of windows....and they were nowhere to be found. Alt-Tab allows me to scroll through them, but even though I've uninstalled cairo-dock now, I still can't get them to minimize to the bottom bar. It is as if I've nothing open.
Kontact is automatically started when I log in to kde 4 and I would like to figure out how to make it immediately minimize to a tray icon. When I used kde 3.5 I had a script in .kde/autostart that ran a dcop call to close kontact, which effectively minimized it to a tray icon. I assume that I should be able to do the same now with dbus and a script using dbus-send. The problem is that I haven't been able to figure out the exact dbus call that I would need. Has anyone else tried to accomplish the same thing? I've googled but all the results I've found are for kde 3. I'm using kde 4.1.3 and kontact 1.3.
then I tried to move something to a workspace and it got locked into opening every time i opened firefox,. I tried to fix that and because i have no idea what i am doing whatsoever i lost the whole bottom panel. I can hear music playing from two different minimized windows,... but cannot find them to close them.. Can not even see them
After upgraded to 11.3. Do a operation that active a network node, the Knetworkmananger will active a display on "Task Bar" (see figure 1). And it can't be minimized to "System Tray Panel", just can't be minimized to "Task Bar".
And the network list display pops up without all display some time (see figure 2), it's very boring.
If I kill the Kneworkmananger and restart it again, it will just have a Icon on "System Tray Panel" normally. But if it change to another network node automatically or I change it by clicking the icon, the display on "Task Tar" will appear and can't be resume to "System Tray", just like mentioned above.
I don't know why have this problem, I tried to reinstall the Knetworkmanager, but the problem also exist.
I am running a week old 11.3 install with KDE (no desktop effects), compiz, nvidia. Last night I was working away. I had Thundertbird, Firefox, and VMWare Workstation open. Maybe something else, but I don't remember.
I was typing away. Maybe I hit something on the keyboard, but maybe not. All apps just disappeared, meaning that they're windows were not open and were not minimized to the panel. I could open *new* windows, and I fire up a terminal and ran top, which showed that they were all running, just not visible. Obviously, this is a Bad Thing.
Some minimized apps no longer appear in the top menu and by that are no longer accessible.For example firefox with the minimize addon or Jungel Disk backup service.How can I reach apps that minimized them self and are not shown in the top menu?
