Ubuntu :: Title Bar Disappears When Window Is Maximized?
Apr 21, 2011
I activated the Global Menu applet (the old one that you can get from the Webupd8 PPA, not the new one that comes with Natty). I also activated the Window buttons and the Window Title applets. In effect, when I maximized my window with these applets activated, there was no title bar and no menu. I couldn't really get it to look very aesthetically pleasing, though, so I ended up removing all of them.However, now when I maximize my windows, the title bar is still gone. I've looked through gconf-editor and think I may have found the culprit, but I can't figure out how to get rid of it.
There's a leftover key from the Global Menu applet for show icon. When I was fooling around with the applets before, I set that value to "true" as default. I've tried unsetting the key. I've tried uninstalling Global Menu and cleaning the configuration files. I've logged out and rebooted. The key is still there.Assuming this is the issue (and I'm not sure that it is), what should I do here?
I've finally gotten around to installing Fedora 15 and I've been having some trouble with VLC. When it is maximized the title bar at the top disappears. The VLC window is also covering up the panel at the top of the screen. This makes it so that I have no way to minimize it or even restore it to a window once it is open. I also can't switch to other windows. So right now if I have vlc open the rest of my computer is completely unusable.
I wish to remove title bar from maximized windows. It's mostly empty and takes screenspace, and now there's this Panel Buttons application, allowing me to have Close, Minimize and Maximize in the panel instead.
The program Maximus does the job, but there's a bug in it, sometimes making the panel invisible when closing windows. Compiz has a function disabling Emerald in maximized windows, but it requires having the ability of activating visual effects - which my graphic card drivers won't allow. The window manager OpenBox has a similar function but it's not permanent and besides I wasn't satisfied with it for different other reasons.
how to remove the title bar? Aternatives to Maximus? Configuring Metacity or instructions how to modify a Metacity theme to remove the title bar from the maxed windows?
Is there some way top stop the "blind effect" of compiz so that when you double click the top title bar of a window that it maximizes the window instead of the rolling up type effect? Also when i place my mouse on the top right of the screen it brings it to a choosing window type mode where you can pick which window you would like to open, is it possible to get this on the top left of the screen instead? Lastly when I use Kdebluetooth4 to send a file to my computer where does that file save to?
Using Natty 11.04. Often when maximizing an application from the launcher or opening them from the indicator area the application will have focus but will be behind the application I had open before. So if I would then close the window I see I actually close the application I had just opened as the menu area is for the new application.Example.
I am browsing using Firefox. I open X-Chat from the indicator area. I still see Firefox. I decide to close Firefox (or minimize) to get to X-Chat. All I end up in doing is closing (or minimizing) X-Chat because it had focus, the menu at the top was for X-Chat and not Firefox.This has had me launch and close many applications in error. The annoyance factor for this is ten.(Searched the forum but not being sure what the best search words for this issue would be I didn't find anything relevant)
I was wondering how i could achieve this. I know about !state=maxvert but this removes the titlebars on all applications.(any)&!(name=opera) will do this just for opera but the problem is when i unmaximize it the titlebar will still be gone.How can i make sure that all applications will have their titlebar when maximized exept opera and firefox, and all applications inclusing these 2 have titlebars when unmaximized?
I'm using openSUSE 11.3. I have a external monitor, and my setup is that when it is connected the panel is expended on the left. (Extended desktop)When I maximize any window in my external monitor, the window gets under the panel, instead of getting maximized properly. Is this a bug?I just tried to move the panel to my laptop's desktop, and the size of a maximized window in that screen gets adjusted properly. So I guess it is a bug related to the extended desktop
[URL]... Screenshot above kinda explains what's happened, I have no window title bars so cannot move windows, or close them without going down to the bar at the bottom and right clicking which is very very inconvenient. I was playing with options in CompizConfig, which is what I think caused the problem, but I can't find a way to reset it to defaults at all so I'm kinda stuck with it.
I've been tweeking my gnome setup a lot lately...I have a 14 inch screen on my laptop and decided I didn't need title bars anymore....so I added a bunch new hot keys andinstead of eliminating the title bare, which kills the borders too, I changed the width to a minimum.If I use the window switcher, I can only see the window if that window is not minimized. All one can see is an icon telling you what program that window is using if that window is minimized. It looks great if the window is open on the desktop.Are there any work arounds anyone know s of or better compiz setups I could use ?
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 and am trying to install a Samsung ML1665 printer. When I insert the CD which accompanied the printer, the CD/DVD icon disappears from the Computer window. Where'd it go? I successfully installed the drivers on it onto my laptop (Windows Vista) without much problem.
Perhaps it should go on another thread, but I also downloaded the UnifiedLinuxDriver_086.tar.gz from the Samsung website, and unzipped it. Where to look for the unzipped files? I did stumble on them, and did install the driver from the deb file which was there, but when I try to print, I'm informed that there's a missing program called 'rasterto samsungspl' which needs to be installed. The unzipped files include five different ones with that name. Which one should I use, and how can I install the right one?
I just moved from the netbook remix of Ubuntu to the normal version... I really didn't like the desktop layout of UNR. One feature I did like, though, was that every time a window was maximized, the title bar was integrated into part of the top panel... which saved a lot of space on this tiny little screen. Is there a nice way to get that feature on the normal version of Ubuntu?
how I would go about centering the text in the title bar for the Ambiance theme. Currently it is on the left side after the buttons, but I want to center it in the middle of the bar. Does anyone know how I could accomplish this?
I just got into big troubles, or at least that's what i think, hopefully not. Well, I've been using ubuntu for a few months now and i love it. today the mouse cursor turned into a X and the windows doesn't have title bars, i can't swtich between apps using the alt+tab method, the show desktop button doesn't work, cannot minimize applications. long story short, i can't do anything.Wish i could provide anymore clues, but i have no idea how to diagnose.
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.
I have some problems with Ubuntu 10.04. Sometimes system starts and there is no title bar on windows. Nothing helps, only logout and logina again. I've searched forums and found that it is possible to add line '/usr/bin/compiz' to starting applications, but this is not helping. I'm stuck. Other problem is that sometimes recently theme is changed. If I go to 'Appearance' then theme suddenly changes back.
I came into work this morning to find XFCE's window manager completely broken: no title bars, unable to move windows around, and unable to focus on a window to type in it (terminal, browser address bar, etc.). I tried going into the preferences then window manager settings, but just got a blank panel. Deleting .config/xfce4 didn't solve the problem.
I'm thinking of just doing a clean install of Xubuntu, or more likely another Xfce-based distro, since my current setup (regular Ubuntu with Xubuntu also installed) is quite messed up (same startup applications being used for Gnome and Xfce, and various other issues). I can't remember whether I did any updates last Friday that might have broken it.
Interestingly I used to have similar issues with Xmonad when I used it - some features didn't work properly and I had to restart the WM to fix them. Never did find a proper solution.
I'm relatively new to Ubuntu and I have a question. I have compiz config settings manager and I did some changes there but I've noticed now that for example when a skype chat window is open and when I move my mouse pointer away, the window disappears. It's not exactly like disappearing cause when I hover over the window, it shows itself but it's pretty annoying ;/ I've changed so many settings but no result
