Ubuntu :: Unable To Select A Window Border

Oct 30, 2010

On my system (Ubuntu 9.x -> 10.x) I have always had the problem of not being able to select the edges of a window in order to change the window size. It seems that the 'hot' zone, which defines the window border selection area, is only 1 pixel wide. I find it very difficult to position the mouse pointer over this zone. Even if I am successful (which usually takes more than 20 tries), as soon as I begin to depress the mouse button, the merest movement causes the pointer to move off the 'hot' zone - and selection fails. The only work-around I have found is to select a corner point of a window -which seems much less sensitive - and then drag the window border in either a vertical or horizontal direction, rather than diagonally. But this is counter-intuitive and unsatisfactory.

Ubuntu :: Changing The Window Border Color?

Mar 21, 2010

I have been struggling to change the border color of the windows on Ubuntu without actually changing the theme (e.g., Keeping the "Human" theme, but having the frame borders be a different color than orange.) I have searched Google for some help, but found nothing that works. I have gone to System > Preferences > Appearance and set the 'Selected Items' color [URL] but to no avail. Only the controls changed color, not the window borders.

Ubuntu :: Resize Window Border To Small?

May 13, 2010

This isn't a HUGE deal, just a little annoying. When I move the cursor to the edge of a window to resize it, i only get the resize arrow in a very small area and it takes me several tries to get it just right. Is there anyway to broaden the resize area threshold or something?

Ubuntu :: Metacity Window Border Disappeared?

May 30, 2010

I recently installed KDE on my Ubuntu setup to try kubuntu by installing the kubuntu-desktop package.I decided I didn't enjoy KDE as much as GNOME, so I went back into GNOME and uninstalled the kubuntu-desktop package via Synaptic.That didn't remove ANY of the stuff that it brought in, so I searched for the keywords "kubuntu" and "kde" and uninstalled all packages but one (libdecoration0) to get rid of all the KDE-mess.Now, after logging back in...THERE IS NO WINDOW BORDER. AT ALL.

Ubuntu :: Missing Titlebar/window Border?

Apr 28, 2011

I just installed 11.04 and was installing everything I wanted fine till I got to installing compiz. It installed fine and ran for a few minutes before my window borders disappeared entirely (see the attached screenshot). I've since tried running metacity --replace, but this makes unity disappear, so I'm left with my open windows only.

PS; I heard that there can be issues with ATI/AMD. Alas, that is my exact setup. I am urged to install proprietary drivers, but they fail to download.

Ubuntu :: Change Inactive Window Border Color?

Nov 29, 2010

I've been searching and have been unable to find a solution. My current theme is rather dark, for reading at night, etc. And with inactive windows on the screen, the border changes to white from black and makes it difficult on the eyes.

Is there a way to change this inactive color to another, such as black or dark gray?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Select Options To Install From USB

Apr 30, 2011

I have just tryed to install Ubuntu 11.04 onto a USB to install on a netbook. I used the software recomended to prep the USB and booted to it.

In the opening menu where you can select to install on a partition I am unable to press enter, it seems to just reset the menu. The keyboard seems to be working fine because I can use the arrow keys.

I have been unable to find a solution to this problem online, all I have found is this simular issue, with no resolution.


The netbook I am using is the Samsung n220 which apparently works well with ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Select <OK> Or <Cancel> In A Bash Dialog?

May 27, 2011

I am attempting to put a SystemRecoveryCD ISO onto a USB drive by using a shell script that is bundled with the ISO file (usb_inst.sh). When I run this script, I am presenting with a dialog box with a blue background (see attachment) with two options: <OK> and <Cancel>. I am able to switch between the options by using the arrow keys and Tab, but if I try to select an option by pressing Enter, O, or C, a new terminal line appears (as in the attachment), preventing me from selecting anything in the dialog. I feel like I'm not doing something extremely obvious;

Ubuntu :: Unable To Select OS After Setting Colors In Grub 2?

Apr 25, 2010

I'm using Karmic with Grub 2 (1.97b4) I have this strange problem going on and believe it might be a bug so if no resolution will file it on Launchpad. Whats happening is this:when I installed Karmic fresh a couple of months ago I never did anything with customising the Grub splash screen. I just stuck with the boring black/white and if I wanted to got to Memtest or my little used Win XP partition would just hit the down arrow when the Grub Splash appeared and go there.A couple of days ago I decided to add some custom colors to the splash screen as outlined in the Grub 2 documentation. I did this to both my desktop (Acer Aspire L100) and my laptop (Compaq) Everything looks fine except for one thing. On the desktop if I hit the down arrow (or any other key) it immediately boots the first option which of course is Karmic. It should have paused the timer and allowed me to scroll down. What this means is I can only boot Karmic at this time. This is only happening on the desktop!

Ubuntu Servers :: Unable To Select Server Kernel With Preseed?

Jan 6, 2010

I'm currently trying to use preseed to build an ubuntu server box over the network. I'm using the netboot.tar.gz from the karmic main mirror. By default it installs the standard kernel (linux-2.6.31-16-generic), and I want to use the server kernel (the metapackage linux-server which should install linux-image-2.6.31-16-server). I'm using a minimal build:

tasksel tasksel/first multiselect minimal As far as I can see all the other preseed settings are close to defaults. I've tried setting both of the following lines (separately and together) with no effect:
d-i base-installer/kernel/image string linux-server
d-i base-installer/kernel/override-image string linux-server
Once the machine is built, if I run:

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Select Individual Updates For Installation?

May 3, 2010

I appear to be unable to select individual updates for installation anymore from the Yast Online update screen. I use this to install updates manually on 11.1. But everytime I think I've chosen an update to install, all the updates listed get installed, and not just the one I've chosen. For example I just chose a "Fuse security update" to install and clicked the "Install" button. Nothing further happens until I click "Apply". Then all patches listed under the "All available" listing get applied. How do I just apply the patches that I want to ?

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?

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Access Address Book When Clicking On Select In K-mail

Aug 22, 2011

I have recently zypper dupped to opensuse 11.4 from 11.3. My only problem is I am unable to access my address book when I click <select> when sending a new message; only recent addresses show in the window that pops up. Even if I select <all> in the list of choices, only <recent addresses> show up. In the useful tips that appear upon opening K-mail it states that if I click on < folders> then < Mailing list management> I will be able to select and manage all of my address books. But when I click on <folders> the <mailing list management> is faded telling me that it is not enabled. My question is what must I do to enable the mailing list management to be enabled? I have enabled mailman with no help.
