Ubuntu :: Unity Sidebar - How To Add Items To It

Oct 11, 2010

Deleting unwanted items from the Unity Sidebar is easy.

but how do you add to it? I'd like to add Terminal, Calibre and some other things to the sidebar for easier access.

I would also like to move Google Chrome to the top of the bar, instead of the middle.

So how does one customize this side bar in Unity?

other than not knowing how to customize my applications in the sidebar, Unity is pretty awesome.

Ubuntu :: Modify Unity Keyboard Shortcuts?

Apr 30, 2011

Previously, I set the keyboard shortcuts so "Mod4+L" (which is just one key) would lock my screen. However, after upgrading to 11.04, that key now acts like a "Super" key, even though the shortcuts haven't changed. I tried modifying the keyboard shortcuts, but that doesn't seem to do anything for me. I can't figure out a solution.

Ubuntu :: Can't Hide Menu Items From "main Menu"?

Feb 20, 2010

I can't seem to hide any items on the "Games" menu from "Main Menu" (System->Preferences->Main Menu). I can hide items on all of the other menus under the main one but the game links won't change. Is there another way to do this?

Ubuntu :: Edit The Menu Bar Items?

Aug 13, 2010

I installed a dual boot Windows 7 / Ubuntu netbook remix 10.04 yesterday.So far so good, everything works fine.

However, i would like to get rid of the little enveloppe in the menu bar, more precisely in what i think is called the notification area. i have found some stuff online about how I'm supposed to delete a package and restart, quite unsuccessful method really, since the envelope is still there.

Plus whenI right click on the menu bar to pin / unpin items, it doesnt work, all the submenus are greyed out.

Ubuntu :: Where Do The Menu Items In Preferences Come From?

Nov 6, 2010

When I choose System --> Preferences --> Screensaver, it runs x-screensaver instead of gnome-screensaver, BUT, in /usr/share/applications, I have the file:

gnome-screensaver-preferences.desktop

And the contents are:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Screensaver
Comment=Set your screensaver preferences
Icon=preferences-desktop-screensaver
Exec=gnome-screensaver-preferences

[Code]....

So it should be launching gnome-screensaver, not x-scrensaver. Where on earth is x-screensaver getting launched from? I thought the menu was determined by /usr/share/applications. (By the way, I did previously have x-screensaver instead of gnome, I am trying to put it back how it was. I have more-or-less succeeded, except this Menu item which is puzzling me.)

Ubuntu :: Add Different Items To My Side Menu Bar

Apr 4, 2011

I don't like Windows 7 Starter, nor Microsoft. I'm in the process of ditching them for Ubuntu. I'm trying, I really am. I've successfully installed Ubuntu Netbook Edition, and I'm now stuck. How the hell do I use this? I can't figure out how to add different items to my side menu bar. I can't figure out which version of Ubuntu I have. The documentation page says, "To check which version of Ubuntu you are running, click System -> About Ubuntu. The first line of the page that loads will tell you the version number, for example Ubuntu 10.04 LTS." I DON'T EVEN HAVE A "SYSTEM" BUTTON! How am I supposed to use this clumsy OS? I can't find any sort of "beginner's guide" or help like that on the internet.

Ubuntu :: Renaming Wine Menu Items ?

Mar 18, 2010

Alright, after trying to organize shortcuts in Wine's menu (which did not work), I ended up hitting the 'Revert' button, which changed the names of most of the folders:

Screenshot

As you've probably guessed, I want to remove "wine-Programs-" from the beginning of the folder names. I've tried using the menu editor to do this, but the 'Properties' button does not seem to work on anything I did not create myself. How do I go about editing the names?

I would also like to know how to move the MS Office shortcuts into a custom folder/menu. They refuse to drag into any folder I make.

Ubuntu :: Add Menu Items To Search And Launch

May 30, 2010

I just loaded KNE 10.4 onto my Dell Mini and I'm trying to get it configured. Some apps that I have installed using Synaptic (Kpackage seems pretty useless, even aside from the fact that the package names are illegible) are not showing up in the Search and Launch, and I would also like to add an additional category and add some items to the favorites list at the top of the page.

Right clicking does not seem to provide any options to change what used to be the menus, and middle clicking puts strange little yellow boxes at the bottom of the screen. (I haven't figured out how to make those go away.What config files hold the data I want to update? Are they not under ~/.kde for some reason?

Ubuntu :: Application Bar Menu Items Missing?

May 12, 2011

My application bars are all missing their menu bars. They were showing up (along with the application title) on the top panel but I ran 'nohup gnome-panel' to at least make my system partially usable (i.e. this restores the top panel and the bottom 'bar' that has the running application icons and it also restored my close/minimize/maximize buttons to my windows).

Ubuntu :: OOo Menu Items Remain After Libreo Install From PPA?

Feb 8, 2011

I installed Libreoffice from the PPA and understood OOo would be removed. However [URL] Drawing and [URL] Formula remain in the Office Menu. I ran

Code:

sudo apt-get purge openoffice*

but this removed my libreoffice-report-builder plugin and not the menu items. What should I check to see if any of OOo is still around, and how do I get rid of it without removing something Libreoffice uses?

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB Menu Items Showing Twice

May 26, 2011

I reinstalled Natty yesterday and then installed Fedora on a separate partition.

I now havedouble the menu items in GRUB2 for both of these.

I ran the update grub command in the terminal and it goes smoothly, but the extra menu items still don't go away.

Puzzingly the menu items point to the same partition on the drive as their clone. Both of the Fedora menu items point to sda8

For example.
tl;dr:

How can I remove menu entries in GRUB? I searched but could not find a reliable answer other than re-running update-grub.

How could I remove GRUB and replace it with Plymouth? Ubuntu Software Centre actually shows Plymouth as "Installed" even though it does not run on startup.

Ubuntu :: Modify Menu.lst From Windows?

Apr 22, 2010

I would like to be able to change which OS is the default for grub to boot, and I would like to be able to do so easily from either Ubuntu or Windows. I suspect that this may be possible if I put /boot on an ntfs or FAT32 partition (though I do not wish to install Ubuntu itself on such a partition). There I would put multiple versions of menu.lst specifying different defaults. Then, before a restart, I can run a script which will copy, as the 'true' menu.lst, the one which specifies the desired default for my next boot.

Is this possible? If so, what do I need to worry about? (I must admit that it is unclear to me how the code in the MBR even finds the correct menu.lst.)

There is a thing I have worried about with a dual booted system and which I suspect I do not need to worry about. However, I would like to be reassured. I have ntfs partitions and removable drives which both Windows and Ubuntu can access. If a crash occurs which leaves a drive "dirty" (e.g., after a power fail), I am assured that if I reboot the OS in which the crash occurred, it will realize that the drive is "dirty" and will take measures to assure that no corruption will ensue. However, I am not so sure about the correct response if the next OS I boot is different from the one that crashed. I think Ubuntu and Windows both use the same convention for noting that a drive is "dirty", in which case I am worrying about nothing.

The relevance of the above worry in this menu.lst context is that, if it is important to reboot the same OS after a crash, then I would also include for each OS on _startup_ a script that would make itself be the default for a next boot.
