Fedora :: Graphical Glitch In Gnome Shell - Only Appears When The Icons Fade

Aug 3, 2011

I've only recently started using Fedora a couple months ago. I used Ubuntu for a few years before. I'm posting because I have a strange graphical glitch in gnome shell. For some reason, this glitch did not appear when I was using Gnome 3 with ubuntu, and I didn't notice it on the F15 Live CD.

There appears to be an artifact (looks like a crack) in my shell. It only appears when the icons fade if I'm scrolled down in the applications menu. Similar artifacts appear in the gnome shell notifications, such as the messaging notifications. I have a ATI Radeon HD 3650 graphics card and am using the default drivers. NOT the proprietary fglrx/catalyst/whatever driver. I've attached a pic.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Graphical Glitch With Online Videos

Mar 28, 2011

it usually happens when i use firefox (does not happen with other browsers like opera or chrome) to visit, for example, videos. where it should be pitch black, screwed up parts of the video or another multimedia program (such as second life) show up. it has happened on white colors as well. here are some shots. i did not take them using print screen since, strangely, print screen does not seem to capture this glitch. i am using ubuntu 10.10 on a 1 gb nvidia 9500gt.

Ubuntu Installation :: Graphical Glitch And Freezing On 10.10

Apr 16, 2011

I've been having trouble trying to install ubuntu (and mint linux too) - I have the same problem with either version.

It's an Acer T180 tower PC, when I come to install it'll go through the motions of setting up the drive, copying files and then downloading/installing language packs. Randomly though between copying files and downloading/installing language packs it will just sit there and freeze. Sometimes it will just freeze and stay on the same image, other times it will freeze and what's best described as a window blinds effect will go across the whole screen. Either way the PC stops responding.

I've tried multiple downloads of iso files (ubuntu and then mint) - running on usb and also running from cd and dvd - same issue each time. I've made sure that the username is lowercase too (just in case).

The other thing I've tried is removing the separate nvidia graphics card and using just the internal one (again an nvidia card). Ubuntu will prompt that there are restricted drivers available - doesn't matter whether I install them or not - it still freezes just the same.

Debian Multimedia :: Odd Graphical Glitch After Squeeze Upgrade?

Apr 4, 2011

So I've upgraded from Lenny to Squeeze, which has been a tadge more interesting than I would like, but there it is. But I've got one problem that is eluding me still. When I load up, but before login, my second monitor displays what I can only describe as a glitched-up memory of something it was displaying before, unless it has been turned off and turned back on again (as opposed to restarted), in which case it displays a very bizarre tiled image. I can't help but feel this is something obvious I've missed.

Ubuntu :: Graphic - Glitch Appears Randomly But Mostly Within 5-10 Minutes After Booting

Apr 28, 2011

I've been having this glitch since Maverick. I hoped installing Narwhal would solve it (clearly not), I like Ubuntu, but this makes the OS frustrating and pretty much unusable, forcing me to stick with Windows.

The glitch appears randomly but mostly within 5-10 minutes after booting.

Another thing : when you want to screenshot the glitch, it usually gives you a perfect image, with everything OK. I have no idea why it worked now. I have a Packard Bell Dot M Netbook.

Does anyone using Kdenlive know how to reset the colors? For a six minute project within the last couple of days my fade to black has become fade to red. I noticed it after a dist-upgrade. Nothing obvious has caused this. I've purge and installed, no change.

OpenSUSE :: GNOME Shell Lost Desktop Icons?

Jun 19, 2011

I have lost some icons from my desktop, they are, firefox, yast, thunderbird, emacs, the space and the names are still there, and when I hover the mouse over the space, it is highlighted as it should be. The application opens and runs as normal when I click on the space where the icon should be. The icons are also missing from the favorites bar on the left side and also from the panel top left when the app is running.I have tried, rebuilding the icon cache in 'usr/share/icons/hicolor', and also all othercon caches for that matter, and no difference. I tried uninstalling and installing the app, no differenence. I tried changing themes and icons from Tweak Tool, no difference. As far as I can see the icons are there in the hicolor directory

Ubuntu :: Installed Gnome-Shell In Natty - Missing Icons?

Mar 26, 2011

Just installed gnome-Shell in Natty Narwhal. the only problem know is that all the icons have disappeared and the theme has gone to a more "basic" look. No matter what desktop session I choose (Unity, Gnome-Shell, Classic) I can't change anything back since the "appearance" menu seems to have been removed while gnome-shell was being installed.

Ubuntu :: Ambiance Theme Graphical Glitch - Broadcast Box In The "Me Menu" Is Black Text On A Near Black Background

Oct 21, 2010

When Ambiance is selected as the theme, the broadcast box in the "Me Menu" is black text on a near black background. Changing the "Input Boxes" color changed the color of that boxes background on every theme except Ambiance. The problem seems to be with having "Controls" set to Ambiance, because having any other theme customized with Ambiance controls selected causes this bug again.

I really don't want to use any of the other themes because I find them horrid in comparison. how to fix this bug, or if someone would be kind enough to post a proper bug report for this? Can anyone else recreate this error on theirs?

OpenSUSE :: Gnome-terminal Glitch Causes Upper Left Of Screen Freeze

Apr 14, 2011

When it launches, sometimes a few mins later, the upper left of the screen (where gnome-terminal sits) freezes and becomes unresponsive. The cursor always stays as the 'text entry' cursor when in the region. If I alt-drag the window and close, nothing changes.It only goes away when I right click the area (even if I have moved/closed the terminal window) I have terminal options so I select 'close' then the screen resumes.

Fedora :: Loosing Icons In Gnome 3 - They All Go Black ?

Jun 4, 2011

Running gnome 3 with the nvidia driver.

Intermittently I loose the icons in the menus, they all go black.

I can see the pop-up message / text if I float my mouse where the icons should be, but do not see the icons.

This obviously makes it hard to use the menus =)

If I log out and back in the icons come back.

The icons do NOT come back if switch user or restart gnome (alt-F2 -> r).

Fedora X86/64bit :: Disappearing Icons And Applications In Gnome - 14

Feb 12, 2011

I just did a clean install of fedora 14 on a dell precision 690 (multiprocessor system, with buckets of memory--16gb). It is old, but a great machine. It is dual boot to windows, but that is probably irrelevant. Note, the reason I did the clean install was the exact problem I report here had cropped up on this system running fedora 14, but I was having kluged together the system after grub issues, so i blamed it on something unrelated and hoped a clean install would solve this.

After installing the system, running updates, etc., I installed open office, and virtualbox. I then set up two virtual machines in virtual box, both Win XP, and added my favorite windows applications. that may not be relevant, but that is the history. I added a couple pieces of high end software too, which required some odd libraries--libgdal and libexpat.

After a couple of of days of using the machine, I tried to run open office (after having used it several times, and logged off several times) and it wouldn't execute. I then realized that all of my desktop icons had disappeared. I then experimented and realized several other applications wouldn't execute from the gnome applications menu. however, I could execute anything I wanted from the command line in a terminal.

I read a suggestion in the forums to create a new user. painful process, but that did indeed solve the problem (temporarily). But then the problem repeated with the new user. So now, this really sucks and I'm cursing fedora. After consulting my linux geek brother, I tried something else--I loaded kde, and tried that. (btw--why doesn't ctl-alt-backspace allow you to switch windows managers in this linux?)

Anyway, kde works fine with everything except open office--it still won't run for some reason, even in kde.

Strangely, my virtual machines worked throughout all this. that is, I could execute virtualbox from gnome, everything runs fine.

General :: Displaying Graphical Output From PAM Called Shell Script

Nov 19, 2009

Before I begin I would like to say that while I am not a Linix newbie, I am not a guru or even a regular user so don't assume I have anything more than general Linux knowledge. I am carrying out research involving virtualization and Single Sign On technologies and I need to display a Xen based virtual machine to the desktop before the user is logged in. This is for a demonstration system and I am trying to find a solution that involves the least amount of system modification possible.I found a PAM module that allows for the invocation of arbitrary shell scripts which would allow me to start and display the virtual machine in question, but when trying to run the virt viewer (or any process with graphical output) I am informed that the display cannot be found. Explicitly setting the DISPLAY env to :0 before running the command has no effect.

This is where my Linux knowledge runs out. I know that there has to be some way to connect to the X session being used by the greeter, I just don't know what that method involves. The shell script is running with root privileges, so it can access whatever "X credentials" are stored locally.

I will be thankful for any assistance this forum might be able to provide, but please do not suggest alternatives to displaying a VM for my SSO needs, and please avoid any solution that involves having to write my own custom greeter. If there is absolutely no way to accomplish what I am trying to do without greeter modifications definitely tell me, but I am a security researcher, not a Linux developer so I am looking for the easiest solution to implement, even if that solution is a gross hack.

Fedora :: Gnome Shell - Change Defaults?

Jun 3, 2010

I feel like this is a RTFM question, so if anyone wants to just direct me to the right manual, that's fine.

I just installed gnome-shell and i cant seem to find anyway to customize anything, esp. the task bar, the clock, et cetera

is there a preferences gui or something that I cant find? I feel like i'm trying to use a mac....

It seems pretty sweet, but, i dont know how to get used to not having a window list... i dont wanna pull up the "activities window" or alt tab every time i want switch windows (esp when my hand is used to just moving to the top of the screen and clicking on the right window...

There's this autohide taskbar at the bottom of the screen, but i cant for the life of me figure out what it's for, or how to put things on it....

Fedora :: Gnome Shell And Icon Themes

Jun 5, 2011

Seems many icon themes still don't really play nice with gnome shell. They work totally fine for the most part, except the tray icons, they like to change them to their own monochrome icons which usually look bad (and most of the time not even all of them are changed). Is there a way to make any icon theme use the default gnome shell symbolic icons? Right now I am using elementary and its mostly fine, but it changed the battery icon to an ugly smaller version. I'd love to be able to change it to the default icon.

Fedora :: Gnome Shell Developer Reference?

I've been googling such terms as "Gnome Shell Developer Reference", etc, and poking around developer.gnome.org; and i can't seem to find documentation on how to code interface elements against the gnome shell for javascript / xHTML / css. Does anyone know where they keep it, or am i completely misunderstanding that aspect of the new gnome hell, in that you only use js to do themes, but not plugins or inteface changes?

Fedora :: Handle A Gnome-shell Lock Up?

Jun 7, 2011

Sooner or later you may experience a Gnome shell lock up. After two weeks of daily use I experienced my first one today: the cursor turned to a hand, and no amount of clicking and pressing Esc would have any effect; Windows key didn't bring Activities in focus either. If you experience these or similar symptoms you can restart the gnome-shell in order to unlock the Gnome session:

1) pass to a console (press Ctrl+Alt+F2)

2) log in

3) execute: ps -ef | grep gnome-shell in order to find the gnome-shell process id (PID); the output may look something like


Pressing Ctrl+ALt+F1 (or, if that doesn't work -- Ctrl+ALt+F7) should take you back to the Gnome session. You should see the restarted gnome-shell. (You can now return to the console, log out from the console, and return to the Gnome session).
