Ubuntu :: Parts Of Windows Staying On Screen

Jan 11, 2011

So I have Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit, and I'm having strange problems with parts of windows staying up on screen after I close them. Check the attached files to see what I mean. I have Visual Effects turned off, and I've tried removing compiz altogether, but I still see this happen every once in a while.

Ubuntu Installation :: Natty Netbook Upgrade Hides Unity?

May 1, 2011

I was running Ubuntu 10.4 netbook version (with Gnome) on my Dell Inspiron 910 and yesterday it told me there was an upgrade available, to Natty. I followed the links, did the download, and left it to install overnight. When I got up today, it said it had a problem, because an application was using a file it needed. I thought I had closed everything before I started the process. I acknowledged the message, and proceeded to restart.

I ended up with the standard 10.4 Ubuntu screen, but with no tool bars, status bars, or anything. Just the wallpaper. Keyring login came up and I signed in, wireless said it was connected. So it looks like things are working, just no UI as such. Poked all the screen edges with the mouse, but nothing popped out.

Ctrl><Alt><Del> brought up the logout screen, and if I clicked on Help, I could ultimately get Firefox to run. (Note: the Help screen talks about Gnome, but it had the new popout scroll bars).

If I hold down <Shift> on startup, I get the GRUB menu. I am running linux generic 2.6.38-8 , but I am not sure where to go from there. Running dpkg didn't help.

Ubuntu Installation :: Parts Of Keyboard Freeze / Keys Do Not Response In Kubuntu & Windows 7 Login Screen?

Jul 12, 2011

I cannot use several keys (1,`, q, a, z & Esc) on my keyboard.I have just installed Kubuntu 11.04, AMD64 version via Wubi. Everything went well w/o any errors. At 1st boot, I also logged in w/o errors, and then tried some apps for Office & Network and shut down. The keyboard was still alright at that time. However, The problem started on the 2nd boot after the installation. Those keys do not response in Kubuntu & Windows 7 login screen and even in my PC's BIOS setup.

My laptop model is Dell Lattitude E6410, core i5, Intel HD Graphics, WD HDD 160GB. And I installed on the other partition, not my Windows one.

Ubuntu :: Windows Accidentally Full Screen In Unity?

May 20, 2011

when I move any window in unity it often goes full screen by accident.

Is there any way to disable this annoying behavior?

eg. grab a window, move your mouse (and the window) up until it touches the panel, and your window is full screen. This happens several times in an hour.. really annoying.

I prefer using F11 or double-click to archive the same thing. (doesnt happen by accident)

OpenSUSE :: Unable The Top Parts And The Borders Of Windows?

Aug 4, 2011

Is there a way to enable the top parts and the borders of windows in openSUSE to be partially transparent? If so, I'd be grateful if someone told me how. Like in this image, the top part where it says "Mozilla Firefox" and the border of that window are all partially transparent (yes, I know that's Windows, lol). I'm running 11.4 KDE.[URL]..

Debian Multimedia :: 8.1 Cinnamon - Windows And Parts Of Panel Disappear

Sep 2, 2015

I installed a fresh new Jessie (8.1) with the Cinnamon environment a few days a go, and yesterday I started seeing a strange issue seemingly happening at random.

I'm not sure what I do to cause this, but every few hours all the text and some of the icons (launcher, notifications and some applications) on the panel disappear. Most icons in the menu also vanish.

I've just noticed that some windows also disappear, but instead of showing the window behind them, I see my background image (see attached image).

I can't interact with windows which I can't see, but I can move and resize them (they have no border to grab, but alt+middle mouse works).

I can get around the issue by restarting Cinnamon (Alt+F2, r), but that works only part of the time.

Dmesg shows nothing (most recent message was plugging in my mouse & keyboard).

I'm running this on a Lenovo X201 (which uses Intel HD graphics QM57) and an external monitor (dual monitor configuration)...

I have LucidLynx installed on my eeepc 1005PE.

Nothing i do seems to take it out of this state but a good old hard-reboot.

Ubuntu Installation :: Booting To CDROM Makes Blank Screen?

Jan 19, 2011

When I start my system on the Ubuntu 10.10 CDROM I get a tiny icon at the bottom, then the screen shuts off due to no signal. So I cannot run the Live CDROM. Relevant here is that Debian CDROM runs just fine. (Lenny installs and runs good, but squeeze does not) Linux Mint (based on Ubuntu) gets me a pretty graphical welcome screen, then the monitor shuts off just like Ubuntu and Kubuntu.WinXP installed and runs without a hitch.

My system: Gigabyte GA-P43-ES3G with 4Gb ram, 750 Gb SATA HDD, Nvidia Quadro video card.I have gone through the BIOS settings looking for clues:SATA AHCI mode is set to IDE (versus AHCI)SATA port 0-3 native mode set to enabled (versus disabled which would be legacy IDE mode)Azalia codec set to auto (verus disabled)

Ubuntu :: Installing Makes Windows BSOD - Avoidable?

Jul 10, 2010

Last month, I agreed to install Ubuntu on my sisters Toshiba NB 305. Ubuntu was fine, but somehow installing it and GRUB hosed both the XP partition and the recovery partition. The Windows splash screen would appear for a second or too, and then Windows BSOD'ed.

I managed to coax the recovery partition into resetting the netbook, and told my sister to be happy with XP for the moment because I had to study for exams.

But she still wants her Linux. So I was wondering if there was a way to ensure that the installation would be OK.

Nov 18, 2010

When I minimize windows they completely disappear. Doesn't matter if its a program or my home folder, anything I open disappears when its minimized.I can run the system monitor and check running processes and they are still running. I just cant see them. All I can do is kill them with the system monitor.I can log on as another user and they work fine. It's just in one account. Is there a way to fix this, or to completely reset my desktop to the default settings? I know it's something I did but I can't find out where to fix it.

Apr 1, 2010

I have two monitors set up on my Asus N61J laptop, but have a weird problem:When I move the mouse to right-hand edge of the Left (Primary) screen, it disappears. To get it back, I have to either keep moving it to the next screen, or move it over something that will cause it to change shape.It also happens if I move it to the left-hand edge the Right (Secondary) screen. Anyone have any ideas as to how I can fix this? It's a little annoying, as it makes it hard to select the Logout/Shutdown/Status menu

Ubuntu :: Use Screen Edges In Unity?

May 3, 2011

I for one find Unity not as bad as others. What I despise is that screen edges don't work any longer for me. Respectively corners. In the 'old' Gnome, I used to have full screen applications on the desktop; for example Virtualbox running something in full screen. Then I would have compiz set to expose all desktops by an upper left corner mouse event. Then I could easily click on another application to switch to it.
With the event of Unity, this doesn't work any longer.

Worse, the launcher doesn't pop up when I create a mouse event on the left edge in Virtualbox. So I cannot switch between Virtualbox and other applications any longer, except by un-full-screen Virtualbox in order to navigate. Is there any possible way, for example by setting, that the unity launcher overrides the present screen (Virtualbox) like it did before for edge events?

Ubuntu :: Clock Hides Indicator Applet

Aug 17, 2010

Sometime yesterday, I noticed that I couldn't turn off the computer using the indicator in the top right corner because of a glitch in how the clock is displayed. As you can see in the screenshot below, the indicator applet is hidden and I had no idea how to "refresh" the panel so that the indicator applet would show again. Although this doesn't happen often, I encounter this problem from time to time.

Ubuntu :: No Unity Desktop After Login Screen

May 6, 2011

I have recently downloaded and installed Ubuntu 11.04 desktop. I'd like to be able to dual boot into Windows or Linux on my PC so I've installed in on an ext4 partition on a separate drive from Windows. The installation process ran smoothly and the dual boot functionality works as planned. The problem I'm having is that after logging in, the login window disappears (as does the options bar at the bottom of the screen), and then nothing else appears, just the mouse cursor (sometimes the loading icon, sometimes not) and an empty background image, no icons, no menus. It doesn't matter how long I leave it for, nothing ever happens from this point on. I am technical, however, unfortunately ,I'm very new to Linux (something I'd like to remedy) so I'm a bit stuck with what to try next.

Ubuntu :: Screensaver Freezes And Hides Password Window?

Jun 4, 2010

I'm using: ubuntu 10.04 64 bit proprietary fglrx drivers for ati 4890.

When shaking the mouse to bring up the computer, the screensaver will freeze and not display the dialog box to log back into my profile. However, even though I can't see it, if I blindly and correctly type in my password it will work.

[update] I posted this question while at work where I do not use Ubuntu...sadly. Anyway, when I got home, I locked the screen, the gl fish screensaver came up. bam, no login dialog box. ok, tried the gl matrix screensaver, bam, no dialog box. Finally, I tried a non-gl screensaver, and what do you know, there's my login dialog box. Something is up with the gl screensavers.

Just to reiterate, when I activate the mouse or keyboard during a gl screensaver I do not see the login dialog box.

Ubuntu :: Natty Unity & Lock Screen Command?

May 1, 2011

I just upgraded to Natty on my Dell 10mini. It runs great but I was wondering what the command-line input for locking the screen. I'm trying to bind a command to a key that will lock my screen and suspend my session all at once, but all I can find is the command for suspend. gnome-screensaver-command --lock doesnt seem to work on unity (obviously). Is there a variation of it that I can use?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Install Without Format Hides Partition Contents

May 27, 2011

I have been using a kubuntu 10.10 till last week when it could not complete do-release-upgrade, so I downloaded kubuntu 11.04, specifying that I did not want my /home partition to be formatted, and went ahead with the installation. I used ext4 under 10.10 and selected ext4 again for 11.04, yet when I first rebooted after the completion of the installation, I could not find any of my files in that partition (except a newly created user home folder with the same user name as the old one). But when I looked at du -h, it's 92% full. I know I have set the mount point correctly, so it shouldn't be a fstab problem. What I should do to recover the files?

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Unity Bar Gone Along With Headings For All Windows

Apr 28, 2011

It all started when I couldn't set up my Unity bar to touch only and not the slide across for the dock. I tried installing Compiz, but it failed so I uninstalled it along with Unity and reinstalled them both. What I am looking at now is a panel-less desktop with only my background and 2 files on my desktop. Also, when I bring up the Change Desktop Background, it has no top bar consisting of the X Minimize or maximize buttons.
