I'm running Xubuntu 11.04 64bit for the first time. It's very nice. But how do I remove the mail icon off the taskbar? When I right click it want to remove the whole launcher, and I don't want to do that.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 and at first there was the icon for Open office quickstart and the icon for network connection.After some updates those two disappeared but I was able to switch off the computer. I have managed to get those two icons back using 'notification area' but the computer will not shutdown now.
Quite often, at start after I shut down my latptop, my taskbar is completely empty and inactive. I can't right-click on it and add anything. The rest is working fine: shortcuts work, terminal works, software works through terminal, sticky notes are opened
I really like the way the Windows 7 taskbar icons looks. I'm looking for a way to make the taskbar icons bigger without increasing the taskbar size itself. I'm also looking for a way to show the icons only, without any text beside.
I think I accidentally pressed a key and then my desktop icons and my taskbar vanished.I've tried everything but I can't fix it. My cursor does not move off the screen so I don't think it is a resolution problem.I'm running Ubuntu 10.10I've had some similar problems in the past but with a single restart of the computer the problem solved itself
I really like the new, MacOS-like icons in the taskbar. The problem is that if I change the icon theme (to something else than the themes present in ubuntu by default;e the Shiki-Wise theme) the nice icons in the taskbar are gone too. Is there a way of keeping those?
I am running openSUSE 11.2 GNOME on a Toshiba P3 laptop. Lately after logging in all I see is a green desktop without any icons or even the taskbar at the bottom. I have to reboot and choose the fail-safe boot option, logout then log back in. This is a very annoying and recurring problem
I have installed opensuse 11.0 on my acer laptop and wanted to use KDE 4. However, after several manipulations on the desktop configuration functions I now have the situation where all my desktop icons are invisible and the taskbar has also disappeared. I am able to add the application launcher as a widget so that I have full access to the functions. The icons are 'on' the desktop (because if I want to add e.g. firefox I get the message that it is already there) and they are in the 'desktop' folder.I also feart this situation is insecure because when I minimise a window it disappears altogethero taskbar) and there are obviously 'hidden' windows still open since on shutting down linux the message appears to enter the root password
Am trying to run Ubuntu from the CD on a Dell Latitude D800 laptop that a friend gave me. A Suse Linux installation is currently on the laptop and appears to run OK and its desktop looks normal with normal buttons and icons.
The Ubuntu boot from the CD appears to run normally but all the icons and buttons on the desktop and the taskbar appear fuzzy/fragmented (that's the best way I can describe it). The menu texts appear normally. Otherwise the system seems to work normally. I can select menu items and they do what they should do, etc. I've tried fiddling with the screen resolution but that doesn't improve anything. I've tried the installation with 10.1 and 10.04LTE but the result is the same: fuzzy icons and buttons.
I am using Ubuntu 10.10 there is an icon left of the clock, its for Assistive Technologies - Universal Access Preferences. I have uninstalled the program, but the icon remains left of the clock. how to remove that icon.

I have taken the largest chill pill I could find and have reinstalled nutty into a spare partition with a view to taking a more forgiving approach... i'll mostly stand by the rants for the time being... Has anyone found a simple (or complex for that matter - I just want it gone!) way to disable the randomly activated lefthand vertical taskbar in unity?It really is an unnecessary irritation when I can put my essential apps down the bottom where they belong with docky (thus reducing mouse mileage on my widescreen) and have everything else a WinKey+App away.Interesting that typing "Configuration" into the search box returns 0 results on a default natty install **** Additional ****Tweaking the Unity Plugin through Advanced Compiz Manager (and gconf-editor) leads me believe that I am after a "feature" that is not available:in gconf-editor:/apps/compiz-1/plugins/unityshell/screen0/options/launcher_hide_modeis the key I would like to have an additional option of "Always" added the currently available options being "0 = Never, 1 = Autohide, 2 = Dodge Windows, 3 = Dodge Active Window"
Is there a way I can remove the backing to the Unity launcher icons? I want to make it so that I can make them look like iOS app icons, and the Unity dock just resizes the icon and adds a background to it.

how to remove the '.desktop' suffix appended to my icons? I unintentionally installed the 64-bit S13.1 when I wanted the 32-bit version - anybody notice the misleading text around the hole on the DVD? The 'Slackware 13.1 (amd64)' side is the 32-bit and the 'Slackware 13.1 (1386)' side is actually the 64-bit version. It fooled me, anyway, and after finding out how limited software choice was I spat the dummy and went back to 32 :/ But...with Desktop Settings>Activity set to 'Folder View' I now have this unwanted suffix added to my icons. Also, if I'm in my home directory via Dolphin and I create new folders they also appear out on the desktop!
I recently upgraded from Lucid to Maverick... I did not notice this earlier but the icon theme (for example, in the nautilus toolbar) is not the same as ambience theme. Although I chose all the defaults for ambience theme by going to 'System' > 'Preferences' > 'Appearance'. I think the current icons I have are remnants from some previous installations. How do I remove them and get to the ambiance default theme?
