Debian :: Some Of The Icons On The Desktop Changed And All Of The Icons In The Drop Down Menu On The Bar At The Top Of The Screen Also Changed?

Jun 19, 2010

I recently installed virtual box on debian and after it had finished my terminal informed me that I could remove some "unnecessary" software by use of sudo apt-get autoremove. When I did this, some of the icons on the desktop changed and all of the icons in the drop down menu on the bar at the top of the screen also changed to ordinary folder symbols. The theme that I was using also went away. I restarted the computer and it booted back into a shell prompt with no GUI. I tried to get back to the GUI using alt+f7 but it didn't seem to exist

Ubuntu :: Desktop Icons Changed On Reboot?

Jul 31, 2011

I recently edited a .pptx presentation in LibreOffice, and it wouldn't close, until finally I had to force it to quit. The document recovered fine, and I saved it and all is good. I thought.

A couple of icons on the desktop acted weird, as in they wouldn't move, and I got a blank notification window when I tried to access them. So I rebooted.

Now, Launcher icons that had color are all in black and white, or most are, my desktop icons are b/w, and no longer have the icons that were associated with them originally. They seem to operate well, everything just changed.

I am running a Dual Core AMD Phenom II X2 565 64bit processor, 2G Ram, Natty, generic kernel, Radeon 4290 graphics.

All of my windows (I know, bad word, but what else do you call them?) have changed to b/w themes as well.

Ubuntu :: Theme Icons Change When Locale Is Changed?

May 3, 2010

I installed Ubuntu for the ability to easily change the system wide locale and language settings.However I've noticed a strange thing when logging in to my account with Japanese set as the language. Although I'm using the default "Ambiance" theme, the folder icons in Nautilus and some other styling seem to change to a different (much uglier) theme. For example on the top panel the network connection icon also reverts to an blue computer screen icon from the other theme, although other icons on the panel and the rest of the styling remains as the correct theme!

I'm now back in English locale, and my theme is normal again. In fact I don't even see the ugly other theme in the theme selector window. I haven't noticed this problem using other languages such as French and Russian.It's only a stylistic theme, but it's really ugly and really bugging me. what might be going wrong?EDIT***********************Ok I just logged back in again using the Japanese locale in order to post a screencap, and of course the problem has vanished now! I already logged in and out a number of times earlier to see if it would solve the problem and it didn't

Ubuntu :: Low Screen Resolution - Desktop Icons Appear Big

Feb 9, 2010

Trying to install the driver for my intel chipset graphics, I edited my xorg.conf and probably did something wrong. Because everytime I log in, desktop icons appear very big, because of the low screen resolution. I fixed and set the screen resolution to normal scale for my display, but when I reboot, the screen resolution returns to its original scale with big desktop icons irritating me.

Debian Multimedia :: FBPanel Menu Don't Have Icons

Feb 20, 2015

I play around with OpenBox and FBPanel, and quite like it.

I started to install both OpenBox and FBPanel in Debian, and the menu don't have any icons on it.

Simply I'm not going to reconfigure everything in both distro, I copied fbpanel configuration folder to my Ubuntu home.

Then I install FBPanel in Ubuntu it have icons within the menus.

This is FBPanel from my Debian Jessie

This is FBPanel from my Ubuntu

I've googled around without any luck about this problem. It's minor and everything else works okay, but still this shouldn't be happen. Since I see the screenshots of FBPanel in Debian they all have icons on it. Tried changing the icon theme, nothing works. If it's because FBPanel can't find any icon, then the launcher shouldn't have any icons right? Also, I use the exact same configuration on both.

Is it because Debian uses different version of FBPanel? Haven't checked both version tho.

Debian :: Gnome Application Menu Icons Have No Descriptions?

Jul 2, 2010

somewhere along the line I disabled the description that appears below icons in all gnome application menus. I don't know how I did it, and I cannot seem to find the way to undo it I would like full descriptions under the icons in my menus. I tried System -> Preferences -> Appearance but could not find what I was looking for. I also tried System -> Preferences -> File Management. Neither seems to help me out. This is not an urgent problem, but an annoying one.

Debian :: Can't Add Desktop Icons

Jan 23, 2014

I've spent over hour researching how to make a simple desktop icon, but cannot seem to do it.I installed gnome-tweak-tool, and turned on the setting to "have file manager handle desktop", which put the computer and trash icons on there, but I cannot find any way to simply add a shortcut/launcher for iceweasel. I've seriously read 20 pages and watched multiple youtube videos on this gnome-tweak-tool, and still haven't succeeded in this simple task of making a desktop icon

Ubuntu :: Drag And Drop Icons Between Views

Apr 5, 2011

I have just installed ubuntu 10.04 after using 8.10 until now. I have two sepparate screens (NOT Xinerama). The problems is that I cannot drag and drop icons on the desktop betwen the 2 screens. On ubuntu 8.10 this was working perfectly.

I do not want to use Xinerama because it is not what I want - when I change workspaces, it changes on both screens, one one screen I have to click exactly on taskbar to minimize/maximize application, so I do not whant to use Xinerama.

So do you have any ideeea how I can have back the feature from 8.10 to be able to drag and drop icons from one screen to another ? I have a sepparate home partition and old settings were loaded into this ubuntu, i erased settings from .gnome, .nautilus etc and still doesn work.

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.
