Ubuntu :: Configuring Panel Autohide Operation?

Jun 22, 2010

I am using 9.10 Ubuntu with the Compiz window manager. I am interested in changing the behavior of the panel (top and bottom) autohide operation. I have been in the CompizConfig Settings Manager / General Options and changed the Edge Trigger delay but that does not seem to impact how fast the panels unhide when I am at the edges. I would like to delay the response time before unhide occurs. Also, I would like to narrow the trigger region so that I have to be closer to the edge to trigger it. Does anyone know how to control these things? Can you direct me to any documentation? I am comfortable working underground (command line, editing, programming) but I often find myself stepping into an ocean when I try to solve simple problems,

Software :: Kde4 Panel Autohide As In Kde3?

Apr 15, 2010

I've just started to test kde4 that comes with slackware64-current. I've always used kde3 just because I can let the autohided panel to appear when the mouse hits the opposite side of the desktop (I think it is a sane behaviour to avoid to accidentaly unhide it while I operate on toolbars and buttons near the location of the panel), so I looked for the same feature inside the new uselessly eye catching d.e. and I couldn't figure out how to get this basic, but powerful, feature.

I am running openSUSE 11.3 on a Lenovo S10 netbook. I have the default panel that is installed with the Slab etc at the bottom of the screen set to autohide. However, it does not do this consistently. Sometimes I have to minimize and then maximize an app window to get it to hide again.

Fedora :: F14 XFCE Spin - Panel Locked

Nov 9, 2010

I've installed the Xfce spin of Fedora 14 (64). The Panel (or main task bar) has several icons by default and as most people. I like to add/remove and move the different items and shortcuts. I can add and remove, however moving items I cannot. When I right-click and select 'Move', the Panel turns gray, in fact it's completely grayed out, like locked. For info, it was absolutely fine in F13.

Ubuntu :: Items In Xfce Panel Are Disappearing

Apr 1, 2010

Items in my xfce panel are disappearing. First it was the networkmanager launcher which disappeared in xfce but still appeared when I used GNOME, then it disappeared in GNOME. My "x updates are available" icon and volume control icons are also gone, and just now my entire "applications" drop down menu disappeared. I frequently use xmonad so I know all the /bin/ commands for critical programs, but this is really annoying. Also, my desktop keeps changing back to a certain image without me changing it. If I was on windows I would think I had a virus. Maybe I dowlnoaded some bad games I was trying to play in wine? xubuntu 9.10, not updated for a little while since the icon disappeared, Thinkpad T61...

Debian Multimedia :: Xfce Panel Error Upon Login - Kiosk Mode

Mar 27, 2015

I just completed a fresh install of the weekly jessie build (downloaded today). All I've done is install updates, add my username to sudoer list, and reboot. When I did, the xfce panel was not there. When I right clicked, Apps, Panel, it opened with an error that I cannot make changes unless I save my session and that it's in kiosk mode. After a logoff or reboot, it's still not there. I saw one thread asked for the output of /.xsession-errors, which I've done, and it doesn't look good... I'm just not sure how to fix:

Code: Select allopenConnection: connect: No such file or directory
cannot connect to brltty at :0
/usr/bin/x-session-manager: X server already running on display :0
xfce4-session-Message: ssh-agent is already running; starting gpg-agent without ssh support

(xfce4-panel:896): xfce4-panel-CRITICAL **: panel-window.c:2698 (panel_window_thaw_autohide): expression 'window->autohide_block > 0' failed.

(process:1035): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed

Like I said I've made no changes other than updates and installing sudo.

Ubuntu :: Unity Launcher Does Not Autohide

May 3, 2011

Recently upgraded to 11.04, and I am happy with the intent but unhappy with the bugs.

I have a specific problem at the moment, the unity launcher will not auto-hide, which means I cannot access the left side of any application (such as the back button for instance). Does anyone know of a fix?

A restart fixes the problem, but If I don't want to do that then I have to set the auto-hide option in Compiz to never, so that application windows stop at the launcher, and don't dissapear underneath. (setting back to other auto-hide options doesn't work)

Ubuntu :: Using Autohide For Top & Bottom Bars On A Touch Screen?

Apr 16, 2010

I have a Fujitsu P1610 convertible running 9.10. I only like the two bars visible when I need them otherwise they just take up valuable screen space, especially on a 8.9" screen.

My problem is I cannot make the bars come up by moving the cursor via my finger. It works fine if I move the pointer via a mouse but that is not an option when in tablet mode. How can I make them come up when I move the cursor to their location via my finger?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Get Launcher To Autohide - Covers Maximised Windows?

Jun 28, 2011

I just got round to upgrading to 11.04 over the weekend, and generally I'm happy with the new desktop - except. In common with several others I appear to be unable to get the launcher to autohide, except this is not a sudden occurence - it has never autohidden, even immediately after install.

Steps tried include:

1. Log Out / In and reboot
2. Installing Compiz Config Settings Manager - I have tried all the options for autohide, with no change
3. Setting the autohide to none - with a widescreen laptop this wouldn't have been disastrous, but maximised windows still fit behind the launcher.

4. Dragging icons from the desktop to the launcher on various workspaces - still no effect.

I don't want to have to resort to Ubuntu Classic, but not being able to use maximised windows is a bit of a pain.

Ubuntu :: Unity - Global Main Menu Doesn't Autohide When Playing Sims3 Fullscreen?

When I run Sims3 in Wine, the game happily switches video mode and runs fullscreen... but the global menu bar doesn't autohide, and there's no way to get it to hide manually. I've checked the Unity plugin in the compiz settings control panel, but there don't seem to be any settings at all for the global main menu there.
