Debian :: How To Remove Gnome Panel But Able To Launch Run Prompt
Feb 7, 2011
Fresh Squeeze install: I have AWN running and right now I have used gconf-editor to stop gnome-panel from being a part of the Gnome Sessions. I think it was in Desktop -> Sessions -> Default Settings..or something like that. Before I did this I was just clearing out the entries for the top panel, using Apps -> Panel -> and then it was top_panel or something like that. I'm at work so I cannot fully verify, after I deleted the bottom panel. This still allowed me to use ALT + F2 to bring up the run prompt.
Since removing gnome-panel from the session, I cannot use ALT + F2 anymore. If I were to put gnome-panel back, is there a way to keep the panels from recreating themselves after I remove them from within gconf-editor? If I leave gnome-session alone, whenever I reboot the top panel keeps coming back. I have everything I want running out of the AWN dock, so I want to remove the panels completely but still have the ability to launch the run prompt.
I've recently been tasked with setting up a couple linux servers and have run into an oddity. Using the default install for Wheezy to set up a basic LAMP stack, I have noticed after joining the computer to my windows AD domain, the Add/Remove Software application no longer prompts me for authentication and will not remove or add applications. I installed samba, winbind, and krb5 using apt-get from the root console following the procedure listed here. [URL] ....
I'm using 11.04 with the old panels, no side panel. For some reason gnome-panel doesn't launch automatically so I have to do it via terminal, which means I have to keep the terminal tab open if I want to keep my panels.
Adding it to startup programs resulted in invisible panels (Cannot register the panel shell: there is already one running.), which I bypassed by typing gnome-panel --replace. I would like a permanent solution though..
I was wondering if it's possible to remove the gnome panel, I prefer the use of dock-lets and I don't have any use for the panel but when I remove my panel with apt en reboot my computer he seems to be unable to load gnome and I only get a terminal(or KDE desktop when installed) I didn't find another topic on this so I was wondering if it's possible to remove and if, how to achieve it.
I created a new panel in Gnome (Fedora 12) and it wasn't showing up right. So I just told it to make another (with the same results), and finally one more. So with the two that are there by default, that's 5 total panels... None of the newly created panels where displaying at all. But after creating the last one the system froze up. Now when I try to boot into fedora my system locks up as it's trying to load GNOME...
Is there any way for me to remove those panels through BASH? So I can just boot to a prompt and get them removed. After that I imagine GNOME will load correctly again...
i just started using cairo and its alright for the time being gonna keep using it. i switch stuff like this off and on. but i am just trying to remove the gnome panel. everything added on is removed from it but it is still there. it is definitely taking away from the cairo look i am tryin to do. anyone know how to remove this let me know the delete this panel button is grayed out.
I went to rearrange the icons on my top gnome-panel today, as some of the notification icons are displayed to the right of the power menu, and whenever I right click on any gnome panel, I get two options only 'Help' and 'About Panels' the menu options for edit, move, remove etc. are gone.
I don't really know where to start with this, as I don�t think I have tried to edit the panel since a clean install, so don't know when it was last OK.
In Maverick I could remove the last Gnome panel by editing gconf and removing gnome-panel from desktop > gnome > session > required_components.I've just updated to Natty and doing this makes no difference. I assume Unity is doing it now, or maybe zeitgeist?I've grep'd through .local and .config, and checked Startup Applications but it still loads gnome-panel every session.
I'm trying to remove gnome-panel to replace it with avant window navigator as system default. For now I've just disabled gnome-panel as startup session, but it bothers me to know I have it installed without using it. Trying to remove it, I get this message as seen in the picture below. Is there a command to remove a software but keep dependencies? sudo zypper rm gnome-panel -exclude *****?
I often need to login into various accounts. In Debian 7 I always was able to copy and paste passwords from text files if I was asked for an input, but now the textfield for password input locks the whole system and I can't do anything else before I have supplied the password. Is there any way of restoring the old behaviour to make password input forms (like the request for GPG key passwords in Evolution) just being an addintional app-window instead of an input request, that locks everything else? I want to be able to open the proper file with the login data when prompted for it.
I know I could theoretically solve this issue by using a general system wide main key which would supply all individual login data, but I want to memorize some often needed phrases by actually typing them when I need them. I just want the possibility to open text files for copy and paste when I'm prompted for a password if this is something I don't even want to remember.
I have the Assistive Technologies Blue Icon in the Top Right Panel, and I'd like to Remove it. I have un-checked "Show" in the APPLICATIONS Menu after unlocking that Panel. I have Dasher, On Screen Keyboard, and Orca un-checked so they don't "Show". I also have Assistive Technologies un-checked in SYSTEM -> PREFERENCES. But, the Assistive Technologies Blue Icon is still being displayed to the Left of my Wifi Icon in the Top Right Panel. How do I get it REMOVED?
I'm having an issue with Gnome panel, the window list applet isn't resizing to accomodate more windows. I have my panel situated so that the window list applet is on the top left and the menu list applet is in the top right. Instead resizing to be smaller in order to accomodate more windows, the window list applet pushes the menu list applet under it and continues to the right. I recently upgraded to lenny and with I'm assuming Gnome panel 2.20.3. I didn't have this issue before the upgrade. I've looked through and tried the options in the preferences and also a little bit in th config editor but with no luck.
I've noticed strange behavior of gnome-panel. After every log in it disappear - it's not killed, it's working but seems like completely transparent so i have to touch it twice to get it back. It's 2.30.2 ver of panel.
I was trying to make my surround sound work and screwed things up. Anyways, one of them is the one with the vertical slider and the other one is the one with the horizontal slider. I want to get rid of the one with the vertical slider. How do I do this? (The one with the vertical slider is in the part where the "tray-ed" programs go). When I use my keyboard volume up and volume down buttons, I notice that the two controls respond APPROXIMATELY the same where one is slightly ahead of the other. If more information is needed, just ask.
Recently switched from ubuntu to Deb Squeeze. I'm having trouble keeping apps on my panel. I'll add an app, and after reboot (sometimes a couple) something or all are missing. If I try to add say Chrome back to it, I'll then have two of them. I've googled and LQ'd around to see up there a way to update the Gnome menus, which I found a few but nothing works
I'm using Debian Squeeze amd64. I have a disk with 4 partitions (Debian, Windows7, Data and Swap). Everytime I boot debian my partitions are not shown in Nautilus and gnome-panel:While nautilus is this way, if I plug USB drives it doesn't run automount.If I execute the command "nautilus -q" and restart the gnome panel, the partitions are shown and the usb automount start to work,if I add "nautilus -q" toartup automatically my desktop gets deactivated.Image after "nautilus -q" and "killall gnome-panel"Does anyone know how to fix it, and make the partitions and the usb automount work correctly
Sometimes I get this ugly grey square in the system tray area of my panel. [URL] I'm guessing it belongs to an item that isn't there, but if I start an additionnal tray program, the new app doesn't take this place, instead it adds itself to the left of the tray. And it doesn't belong to a program that I used and closed, since it's there after a fresh boot.
So I just updated my IdeaPad to Natty and played around with Unity. The performane was absolutely unbearable so I installed Unity2D from the software center. Now when I start the session everything seems to be fine at first. Whenever I move the mouse over the panel though it seems to switch to my old gnome-panel from the "Classic" session (with some missing icons). When I move the mouse over that panel again it switches back to the Unity panel style. What is going on? Can I fix this somehow? I will have to use the classic session until I get a working consistent behavior
so i want to have an embedded terminal on my desktop. alltray --borderless --skip-taskbar --sticky Terminal --hide-menubar --hide-borders --geometry 60x600+10-10 seems to work, however, its just on one desktop and it's appearing in the panel, despite my
