Just upgraded my FC12 to 13 using preupgrade.On booting up into 13 my panel at the top of the screen that normally holds the menus/system tray etc doesn't seem to have initialised. It's just not there.I had a message about "no system tray detected on this system" which I assume is from one of the applications trying to start up in the systray.I've not found anything obvious in the logs, but then I may not be looking in the right places.
Somewhere along the line while trying to reset the Ubuntu panels i lost the system tray getting the message in the title . Now , when i log on and get to the desktop i have no way to get anywhere else . Managed to get on - line via Help icon on log off screen . Is there any way for me to get these functions back without re - installing from scratch ?
After upgraded to 11.3. Do a operation that active a network node, the Knetworkmananger will active a display on "Task Bar" (see figure 1). And it can't be minimized to "System Tray Panel", just can't be minimized to "Task Bar".
And the network list display pops up without all display some time (see figure 2), it's very boring.
If I kill the Kneworkmananger and restart it again, it will just have a Icon on "System Tray Panel" normally. But if it change to another network node automatically or I change it by clicking the icon, the display on "Task Tar" will appear and can't be resume to "System Tray", just like mentioned above.
I don't know why have this problem, I tried to reinstall the Knetworkmanager, but the problem also exist.
I've just returned to KDE after a long absence, and am wondering if there is a panel, system tray, or similar applet to disable/enable the screensaver. I know I can go into system settings, but what I'm after is something that's one click. It's for when I'm watching stuff like iplayer.
The volume control in the Gnome panel system tray has disappeared from my wife's Ubuntu 10.04 system with the master volume set to zero.I was able to restore sound via System->Preferences->Sound master volume, but this is not particularly convienent. How do I restore the panel volume control? (the speaker icon on the panel, between the Network arrows and Chat/Mail setup icons).
Every time I log in, I get a "Boot Messages" indicator in my notification area. I click it and it shows me what happened during boot (uneventful, no error messages). I would like to remove this icon, it's very annoying. I can right click it and click quit but I don't like doing this every time I log in.
Is there an easy way to stop it from starting up (I couldn't find it in Startup Applications)?
I recently installed F11 and customised the gnome panel with various custom application launchers. After the latest upgrade all my custom launchers have disappeared, the only ones left are firefox and thunderbird.
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.
I don't know but just one day after I restarted my ubuntu 10.10 pc. Probably after an update. Dropbox no longer shows up in the top panel. I also had a thing called googsystray, that no longer shows up either. I can see the process dropbox is running.
I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid. I need to find the icon image files used by the Gnome panel tray apps, specifically, Banshee (see attached screenshot). It's not in /usr/share/pixmaps, as that banshee icon is used for the panflute launch button, not the Banshee tray icon. I imagine it would be where all the other tray icons are (volume, battery, etc). I'm looking for it so I can try editing it to fix the white background.
Here's a summary of my problem: When using Skype, it's possible to close the gui of the application only. When doing this, the Skype process itself doesn't close; it hides in gnome-panel's notification-area.
Now, when opening the Skype application again (e.g. by clicking on a Skype launcher), Skype starts a whole new process. This is shown to the user as a new Skype tray icon being generated, as well as a new gui window being created.
What I'd like to do is as follows:
I'd like to replace the Skype launcher with a script that would * recognize if there is a Skype process running if yes, bring up that * instance of Skype if not, start Skype normally
Now, I've read some of the source code of gnome-panel to try and see how it's done. From what I've gathered, a button_press_event is bound to some function that probably (am unsure of this) sends a signal of some kind to Skype.
Very similar to this thread, except for Skype and without wmctrl (does not work with Skype): HOWTO: Make a launcher restore an open window (dock-like) [URL]
I feel little silly asking this, I accidently removed from my gnome panel my internet connection, volume control and battery indicator on F11. how can I add this back. It does not show up in the add to panel menu and the applications do not give you back the default feel.
I lost my GUI. I was trying to install some Driver files in my Redhat5 system. Unfortunately I lost my gui. If I reboot my system it showing this error "spwaing too quickly wait for 5 min". I am in runlevel5 but no graphical view. I tried startx but it's not working. How to solve this in command mode.
I have an external HDD, with 3 partition. When I plugged it in, the entries are shown dolphin But no symbol in system tray. Can I add it in system tray and umount all (all partion of single USB device) in a single click.
I have a strange problem about the system tray that I hope someone else solved ...I have 11.4 64bit with all the new up-dates installed and sometimes the system tray Stops hiding.I have the option to hide the system tray and it just stays there.I noticed this sometimes happens when the show plasma dashboard or show desktop widgets are used.Is there a "cure" for this? Does someone have the same problem ?Another issue is that in my install the /home mount point was mounted on top of an older install of Opensuse.
I dont use Network Manager to connect, but the nm-applet wireless icon wont go out of the system tray. Ive tried to do it through the GUI by unchecking Network Manager in the startup applications: didnt work. I tried to do it by editing the .desktop files in /.config/autostart and /etc/xdg/autostart: didnt work. I deleted all the .desktop files: didnt work. I can get rid of it by killing nm-applet, but then it comes back next time I log in. Is there any way to get rid of this stupid thing outside of purging Network Manager?
I have decided to install Debian 8.2 in my desktop. I am test driving it in virtual box find and solve any problem I may face later on. The isp I use provides me with a shared ip every time and I have to create a DSL connection with username and password to connect to it. I can create the connection from the gui connection manager using "nm-connection-editor" command in Debian.
I am using elementary os freya and I can do so from the system tray at the top right. So, I wanted to do the same in debian also. But I can only create VLAN, VPN, Bridge, Team and Bond. There is no option for DSL but if I create one in the way mentioned before, it appears as a profile under "Wired" network option in system tray. I read some post regarding network option in system tray but I could not make them work and other I did not understand. In KDE window manager I have this feature but I want to use gnome 3.
I have a few problems with my openSUSE 11.3 (I were using openSUSE 9 ages ago, then I moved to Debian, jet after few years I though way not to give openSUSE another chance ).
Basically all is great except for 1 little annoying problem - system tray.Applications like Amarok, Network Manager, SUSE updater, etc just does not show up in system tray! Amarok keeps playing music after I minimalize it to tray, but its no where to be found XD.
I'm using the following repositories: download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Release:/46/openSUSE_11.3/ download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/KDE_Release_46_openSUSE_11.3/ packman.unixheads.com/suse/11.3/
Do you know a command for zypper to install newest packages, ignoring branding (from who package is)? That is one of things that truly is a pain, and which I never experienced while using Debian.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04. I just installed HP drivers for my printer tonight, and now my laptop is acting a little "buggy". Some applications have froze, and my system tray icons are getting messed up. Sometimes the little power button dissapears and my username appears there instead, but it's not clickable. This means I have to shut down by using the power button on my laptop.
Also, as I am typing this message, the letters onscreen are lagging quite a bit behind my actual typing. It's as if there's something running in the background that is slowing everything down and messing things up.
