Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Compiz Freaked Out - Desktop Did Not Show The Wallpaper Correctly

May 28, 2010

I saw my computer's desktop did not show the wallpaper correctly and I could actually see INTO my other virtual desktops....its as is compiz decided it did not want to work correctly: You can see into my other virtual desktops, as you can see I have an application open in the desktop to the left of the current one.

I can still maximize windows and it takes up the whole screen as it should, but animations and anything on the left side (dead space side) seem to get stuck...I have to rotate my cube and rotate back before everything works correctly. I know I did get a few new updates around the time this started happening, so hopefully someone out there has experienced something similar.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Wallpaper Plugin Broken With 10.10

Oct 13, 2010

After upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10, I've noticed (as have others) that the Compiz plugin for multiple wallpapers on different desktops is broken. If I wish to move to a new screen with the Expo feature, the graphics behave oddly (i.e. things become blurry or windows look terrible). I found a work-around on Launchpad, but this is only a temporary fix to a long-term solution. Has anyone else here had this problem or figured out a way to solve it?

Debian :: Installing KDM Themes - Wallpaper ?

Mar 18, 2011

I am using Debian 6.0 Sid (aptosid) with KDE 4.5.x and would like to install the official Debian Squeeze KDM theme, wallpaper etc, into my system.

I think the theme is called Orbit Fun? I came to this forum instead of aptosid's forum to learn how to install KDM themes the Debian way using a terminal and not the KDE-Look download way. KDE-Look does not have the official Squeeze theme at this time, and I generally do not like the aptosid artwork, but I really like sid.

Ubuntu :: Desktop Wallpaper Slide Show Builder?

Jun 5, 2010

Any tools to assemble a set of images into a Gnome desktop wallpaper slide show -- like the Cosmos one in the default selection?I can see its a folder with the images and an xml file that controls the "playback". Presumably there is a reasonably easy tool to use to create my own short of reverse engineering the xml files.

Ubuntu Installation :: No 'desktop' / Launcher Just Plain Wallpaper

Apr 5, 2011

I just had my pc updated with the latest Ubuntu 11.04.. but since im very curious with the new appearance (which i think really nice and neat), i started to configure Compiz and opened the 'compiz configuration setting manager'.

since i thought it was OK, i just changed the desktop configuration to 'Desktop cube' just like on my previous Ubuntu (10.10).. and i just clicked to change to desktop cube whatever popped there to confirm it.

but later i found i can't open any programs anymore, just plain wallpaper on my 'desktop'.

Debian :: Clock Directly On Desktop Wallpaper?

Feb 6, 2016

When I google screenshots of Linux I often see that people have a clock directly on their desktop. How is this done?

I'm running Xfce on a Wheezy vm, but without xfce4-panel, so having a clock/date right on the wallpaper/desktop would be great..I don't want a clock in a window.

Fedora :: Desktop Wallpaper And Icons Become Strecthed Unusable

Dec 10, 2010

I already posted on the compiz community forums but I figure more eyes are better than less. I hope the "software" forum is the right place to post, I don't believe I'm having any hardware issues.What I'm seeing is strange desktop corruption/stretching when compiz starts, almost as if compiz thinks my desktop is about four time wider (horizontal) than it really is and this makes nautilus go a bit crazy. All other compiz functionality seems fine. Before compiz starts (with metacity or openbox), the desktop (nautilus) appears normal. I've tried both settings for show_desktop in gconf and they both result in the same (bad) effect. If I use a gradient as my background instead of an image, I see that the gradient is also wrong in the same way (wider than it should be).

Attached are two screen shots: streched-small.jpeg is my desktop with compiz and normal-small.jpeg is the same desktop after running "metacity --replace".I have a dual head setup with an ATI X18000 running two identical monitors, both at 1280x1024. This problem does NOT happen if I disable one of the display or clone them nor does it happen if I place one monitor on top of the other. The problem only occurs in dual head mode and only if the monitors are logically positioned side by side, horizontally.I don't think it factors in but it's worth mentioning I'm doing this with an LTSP 5 thin client configuration. My thin client just happens to be a PC with an X1800 at the moment.

Debian Multimedia :: No Wallpaper / Desktop Icons - Xfce/XDM On Squeeze?

Apr 10, 2010

I have been an Ubuntu user for the past two years and have recently made the switch to Debian, so while not new to GNU/Linux or Debian-like distributions I am still learning on many fronts. Installing squeeze directly caused issues with my Wi-Fi for some reason, so I installed lenny and performed aptitude safe-upgrade (full-upgrade kept breaking the system), and took care of stray packages manually to get a working squeeze system. My desktop environment of choice is Xfce, using XDM.

Ever since the upgrade, both the login prompt and the actual desktop have had a black background with no icons or right-click menu. I am guessing that the issue is a daemon that should be running but isn't, although I have no idea where to begin troubleshooting the issue, which is why I came here. I've uploaded at of my desktop here Right-clicking in the black space doesn't do anything, and changing my wallpaper settings is ineffective.It's not a huge problem for me, as everything else in the system appears to work, but I would like to figure out what the problem is, fix it, and maybe learn something about Debian in the process.

Fedora :: Gnome Desktop Wallpaper Changes Don't Stay In Effect After Reboot

Jun 9, 2010

This is something that I started to notice in F12 and it appears to be the case as well in F13. Any changes that I make to my desktop wallpaper in Gnome don't stay in effect after a reboot. Any ideas as to what is going on here? I don't mind the default blue swirly thing in F13, but I at least want the style change from scale to center to stick.

Choosing the 'set as default' option doesn't seem to help either, as that changes the screen you see at the Gnome login. Once I log into my account the default desktop wallpaper is still there.

Red Hat :: Unable To Select PNGs As Desktop Wallpaper - JPEG Backgrounds

Apr 21, 2010

I switched our main fileserver to new hardware running RHEL 4 Update 8 yesterday. Post the switch my users are finding that the text in the boxes on taskbars at the bottom of their desktop screens no longer truncates but spills over onto that of other boxes, making them extremely hard to decipher.

All our desktops are RHEL 4.8 too. Also, I'm only able to select PNGs as desktop wallpaper - JPEG backgrounds just appear as plain white when selected(!) Has anyone seen this before and knows of a fix?

General :: After Booting Logging Into The User A/c - Gives A Blank Screen With The Desktop Wallpaper

Jan 8, 2011

I just put on my Linux PC now and after booting logging into the user a/c, it just gives a blank screen with the desktop wallpaper - no menu's or anything, so there's pretty much nothing I can do. I know I had removed the menu and replaced it with the dock (awn dock or something).

However, I can log in as root and root works fine (so I'm doing the update at the moment).

Coming back to my question, I used to know an Ubuntu command which I put in as sudo (terminal)and it used to work like a magic command which would literally restore and repair my linux installation - I even used it when I bought a new system and transferred my linux hard drive from my previous machine to the new one and this one command actually setup and prepared my linux installation to work smoothly in my new PC - just one command after connecting my h/drive in the new PC.

Ubuntu :: Maverick Desktop: No Wallpaper, Nautilus "miracles"?

Oct 17, 2010

I have some strange things hapenning after Ubuntu upgrade. First instead desktop wallpaper I get screen in same color as gtk theme. When I try to change wallpaper, it opens in taskbar 30 or so Nautilus windows. After half minutes these nonexistant windows (they show only taskbar) closes. Nothing happens. I get same effect one time in other moment, but I can't remember what I did. Desktop icons and nautilus otherwise work as intended. What configuration files I should give?
