Ubuntu :: Don't Have A Volume Control Icon On The Panel And When Choosing To Add Stuff To The Panel It Isn't Available?

Oct 12, 2010

Someone on the forums had me uninstall pulseaudio to get pSX working, and now I don't have a volume control icon on the panel and when choosing to add stuff to the panel it isn't available.I re-installed pulseaudio through the package manager, but I have a feeling it didn't install everything that uninstalled with it.

Ubuntu :: Control Of The Compiz Twinview Maximize Function

Jun 28, 2010

Im running a dual monitor setup in gnome, with the closed nvidia drivers in twinview mode. most of the times i want to be able to maximize windows to a single monitor (this is the default behavior in 10.04 lucid i believe), but sometimes i want to span a window on both screens. compiz doesn't allow windows to resized past screenborders, and gdevilspie wasn't able to get past this.

After a lot of googling and toying around i came up with the following sollution, i'm posting it here so other people can enjoy it as well (and i'll be able to find it again after my next install).

I made a script to switch between the streched mode and the doublescreen mode to use it, you'll have to stop the autodetection of the outputs in compiz. this option is found in compiz config settings manager under general settings > display settings or though the gconf-editor in /apps/compiz/general/screen0/options/detect_outputs

This script switches between the two modes, but you need to edit the resolutions of your monitors! (i have a double 1280x1024 setup)


My way of using this:
1. use the script to switch to the span mode
2. start photo/video edit software
3. work
4. close the software
5. use the script to switch back

Ubuntu :: Compiz Rendering VLC Fullscreen Video - Cannot Control Playback?

Feb 28, 2011

I have Compiz Config Settings Manager installed on my Ubuntu 10.04 machine. All the effects are working properly and everything is running fine. However when i play video with VLC Media Player, i would only get audio and no video. After looking this up i changed the output to X11 vidoe Output. I started getting video and audio. But when i switch to fullscreen mode the fullscreen video window is rendered by Compiz and thus has all of those window effects like wobbly, minimize, maximize and stuff are also applied to the full screen video. It also does not have all those controls that vlc normally shows when you wiggle your mouse in full-screen mode. I tried disabling the Video Playback option from the CCSM window, but to no avail.

The same thing also happens for the full screen view of Google Chrome. And the only way to leave full screen is to press F11 again. In this case the tab stacking area which drops down doesn't appear at all, also the exit full screen option which too drops down also does not appear. It seems Compiz is blocking all of those interactive buttons like the floating control panel in VLC and Tab stacking area in Chrome.

I accidentally removed the volume control from the panel (top right). I added it again (Indicator Applet), but now it's not on the far right with the time/date and wifi icons; it's in the middle part of the upper panel. How do I add applets to the far right of the upper panel?

Ubuntu :: YaST2 - More Advanced Control Panel?

Sep 27, 2010

I'd switched to OpenSuse around ubuntu 8.04, for a number of reasons. I thought I'd give (k)ubuntu another try, cos so much software gets released that's *ubuntu compatible these days, almost as much as is windows compatible. So far it's not bad, but I've got one gripe, that was one of the things that drove me away from kubuntu before. All the advanced user graphical admin stuff is essentially hidden! In OpenSuse, you've got Yast2, which gives you absolutely all your admin stuff in one "control panel". Kubuntu used to have this, in kcontrol, but that's long since gone.

Is there something like Yast2 for kubuntu? As an example of something I could easily do in Yast2 and can't find an easily graphical way to do in kubuntu 10.04-I swapped out one of the hard drives in my system. Now every time I boot, the bootloader is looking for the now missing hard drive, and I have to tell it to skip it. I know I could manually edit the file, but I'd rather have a nice graphical config tool that lets me configure things. I can't seem to find such a thing anywhere in my kubuntu install tho.

Another example-there doesn't seem to be a gui partitioner installed. I can just use parted from the command line, but like I said, I prefer a graphical interface. I installed partitonmanager, but still. A graphical partitioner seems like a pretty crucial thing to have in an OS. Maybe I just missed it someplace, but that comes back to my main point, which is that all the power user graphical stuff seems to be missing, or really well hidden; and it would be nice if all that stuff was in a single place. So, any control panel sort of app, that includes the sort of stuff Yast2 has on OpenSuse?

Ubuntu :: Volume Control On Panel Won't Work Either

Apr 24, 2011

Yesterday my computer started acting up. I'm not sure if it had anything to do with the update, but it happened shortly after, so i'm thinking that it's likely.My laptop has one of those touch-pads that controls the volume. Now it won't work. I tried going into preferences<sound to change the volume, but that doesn't even work. As much as I change the volume, it just stays where it's at.

Volume control on the panel won't work either.Also, another problem I'm experiencing is that when I go on ..... all of the videos play really fast. =/ not sure if it's ubuntu related, but this problem started at the same time as the other.

Ubuntu Servers :: Which Hosting Control Panel Is The Least Invasive?

Apr 1, 2010

I want to set up a hosting control panel solution on my Ubuntu LAMP server to make it easier to administer virtual hosts, users, databases, and so on. I'm completely disgusted with how drastically the installation seems to alter your system (I highly doubt it even works at all with Debian/Ubuntu).

I'd actually prefer something that was more than JUST a web hosting manager, but that gave me options for managing my server in general. What control panel option would you recommend?

Most importantly, I want something that's going to work well with the Apache config standards that are unique to Debian/Ubuntu and won't require a PhD to setup. I really like the default Apache/PHP stack in Ubuntu. Of course I'm particularly interested in Open Source solutions. The new OpenPanel project sounds really exciting, and I've heard lots of people talking about Webmin. Others I've heard good things about include VHCS, ispCP, and ISPConfig.

Ubuntu :: Where To Find Alternative Panel Volume Control?

May 28, 2010

The only volume control panel object I've been able to find in Ubuntu 10.04 is the Indicator Applet, and that has a bug that makes accessing the system through a remote VNC Viewer unusable. (Every time you hit the 'M' key, it activates the applet menu. You cannot type 'm' into a document or form without shutting off the applet.)

So, since I use VNC to remotely access the machine fairly regularly, it's either remove the applet every time I do, and add it back again when I'm running local, run without a volume control, or find another panel applet that provides for volume control. (At least until the bug-fixed version of the applet is available.)

The thing is I've not been able to find another volume control applet. Can anyone tell me where to find one?

However, even after reinstalling pulseaudio and ubuntu-desktop(which got removed), the sound control isn't there, although the internet connection icon in the notification area is still thereNote: Another thread said that adding notification area to the panel would restore it. I've tried that, but it only shows the internet icon and not the volume control.
