Ubuntu :: Applications Disappeared From GNOME Menus?

Jun 19, 2011

my problem is that the Applications menu is empty and Preferences and Administration no longer appear under the System menu.I'm running 11.04 and I use Ubuntu Classic because I prefer the GNOME interface. The other day I was trying out various audio/multimedia players so I was installing and uninstalling several programs with the Software Center.

I started to play a CD in Audacious when the system crashed. The screen went dark but the computer kept running. I ended up doing a hard reset. Everything booted up normally and everything seems to run fine except my GNOME menu is messed up. The Applications menu is empty and Preferences and Administration no longer appear under the System menu. (I realize I can get to these through System Settings but I want the menus back) Furthermore alacarte will not run so that I can edit the menu contents.

I've tried using one of the old menu versions in /home/dan/.config/menus but they are all outdated and I cannot edit them. It also doesn't bring back Preferences and Administration.I've tried reinstalling alacarte and that doesn't do anything.I've tried using other panel programs like Docky and AWN but I have the same menu problem.I also tried resetting the panels to defaults but that doesn't fix the problem.

Fedora :: Drop-down Menus Change Colors Across Applications?

Jul 21, 2011

I'm using Fedora 15, Gnome Shell. Standard window decoration (Adwaita).

Some applications use one set of colors for drop-down menus; other applications use another set of colors.

Nautilus, e.g., uses a white / bright blue combination. Quodlibet and Firefox both use a greyish blue. see attached screenshots.

Are your Gnome applications also doing this sort of thing in Fedora 15 and Gnome Shell?

Fedora :: Remote Shutdown From Gnome Menus?

Aug 7, 2010

I have a server with Fedora 13 installed and vnc-ltsp-config set up for remote desktop access. Seems to be working fine for everything I need, and with KDM instead of GDM, I'm even able to log in as root to Gnome.Which leads me to the problem. Logging in as root and I get the shutdown menu options in the Gnome "start menu". Log in as anyone else, no shutdown options. Logging in to the console as any user and I get the shutdown options.I want to enable the shutdown options for all users remotely. How can I go about doing this?

And I know someone will say "that's a bad idea". Don't worry, this is a small server at my mom's house I set up for her to run some web proxy filtering with Dan's Guardian and Privoxy. Since I'm typically logging in remotely from home using VNC of some flavor, I'd rather be able to reboot or shutdown through the menu (just more "natural" to me). I know I can shut down through the command line, but that's just too much work.

Ubuntu :: Applications / System Menus Are Empty

Sep 26, 2010

In trying to fix issues I have been having with my display, I seem to have inadvertently removed all applications from my menu, which is rather annoying. I'm not sure how. I've attached a couple of screenshots to display this.

When trying to access the 'Main Menu' option from the Gnome Control Center, I get the following error in the command line:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/alacarte", line 36, in <module>
File "/usr/bin/alacarte", line 32, in main
app = MainWindow(datadir, version, sys.argv)

Debian Multimedia :: Applications Menu Rearrangement For Sub Menus?

Apr 18, 2011

There is a plethora of apps in the Debian distro -great stuff! Problem is, there is too much to display efficiently in the menus system as currently deployed. I'm thinking particularly of the Science section. Is there a way to rearrange the menus, so that there are sub-menus, such as Astronomy,Biology, Chemistry, Physics etc?

Fedora :: Too Many KDE Applications On A Gnome Install

Oct 17, 2009

I have what seems to be far to many KDE programs running on my Gnome desktop is this normal?

I thought there would be gnome equivalents.

I'll list them:

Is this normal for a Gnome Desktop Fedora installation and if so which are completely arbitrary and can be removed safely?

Also is xorg supposed to use 8-20% of the CPU when all that is running is the system monitor? The system monitor application also uses 20-70% of the CPU when it is running by itself also. (Intel Pentium 4, 3.2ghz)

I didn't choose any KDE desktop Applications Intentionally

Fedora :: Gnome Versus KDE Applications

May 31, 2010

I installed Fedora 13 and use the Gnome desktop. I want to keep my installation as clean as possible and have heard some contrary advice about installing both Gnome and KDE desktops, so I want to stay with just Gnome. In the past I have mixed both and feel that resulted in tons of packages that I probably didn't need and tons of updates all the time. However, some applications seem to be KDE applications and installing them requires installation of many KDE packages. This is a source of confusion for me:

Is there a distinction between Gnome applications and KDE applications? If so, how do you tell the difference? Should one NOT install KDE applications if you are using the Gnome desktop and not interested in installing KDE desktop? Is there a best practice on how to approach which software to install so that you do not create a mix and match mess?

Fedora :: Startup Applications In Gnome 3?

May 25, 2011

So...without editing ~/.config/autostart (which I can't find in F15...) How does someone set a startup application?I notice Gnome 3 does not have the "startup programs" option available any longer.. So, I went searching with the hopes of running it with trusty terminal:

#yum whatprovides gnome-session-properties
You can use "*/gnome-session-properties" and/or "*/bin/gnome-session-properties"

Fedora :: Gnome Is Stuck Remembering Applications

Aug 4, 2009

I recently was playing with some gnome settings and I went to System > Preferences > Startup applications then I hit the Options tab and checked "Automatically remember applications when logging out" was testing to see if it actually worked... and it did.. so I unchecked it and restarted again and... it's the SAME 3 applications I was running.. and its stuck..tried checking it again and then closing everything but now it's still doing it with the same 3 apps I had running (Totem, Firefox, Pidgin).Anybody know how to wipe where it's remembering the applications I'm running? so this can stop when I log in.

somehow checking it again and closing everything worked this time, but does anybody know where I can find the find the remaining information for this function? so i can wipe it clean, whatever may be left.

Fedora :: Duplicates Of Wine Applications Listed In Gnome?

Oct 7, 2010

When I try to open something in gnome, say, a file format it does not recognise, I get the usual "open with..." dialog. There, I see many duplicates of wine programs, such as Windows Media Player, or Wine core exe, wine windows program loader, etc.For example, the "Windows Media Player" is listed at least 10 times in that dialog. How can I remove these duplicates?

Fedora :: Gnome: Applications/Windows Starting Always In Background?

Feb 12, 2011

all programs and windows that I start on my F14 x64 machine getting either started in the background or minimized. This is driving me insane. My Gnome (no compiz) has that annoying behavior since F13 and I've already gone through any windows/appearance/effects settings - w/o any success.

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.

Ubuntu :: No Menus On 10.10 Gnome?

Nov 19, 2010

I updated my Ubuntu 10.10 yesterday with Synaptic but didn't reboot until this morning. I can log in normally but that's it. I get a nearly blank screen with my selected wallpaper. There is no menu bar at the top of the screen (Menus for Application, System, etc; clock, cpu load, weather, network applets) and no taskbar at the bottom of the screen. I was able to get Firefox going by opening the one icon I had for an automatically mounted filesystem and going to "Get Help Online" in the Help menu. I can do little else. If I right-click on the screen, I get the menu to make folder, make document (which works), but the change background item doesn't run.

I can't switch to a terminal with Ctl-Alt-F7 and I can't see any way to open a terminal in Gnome without the Application menu.

Fedora :: Prevent Some Apps From Appearing In Gnome 3 (Activities->Applications)

Jun 11, 2011

I don't want to install alacarte to do this. I've copied the .desktop files from /usr/share/applications to ~/.local/share/applications that I don't want appearing in the gnome 3 applications list (e.g., email settings for evolution), and added 'NoDisplay=true' to the end of each desktop file. Restarted gnome shell, even tried logging out and back in, but they still appear there. Previously, in gnome2, desktop files under the home dir superceded the global directory. Do I need to edit them directly as root to effect the changes, or could this be a selinux problem?

Turns out I have to install package alacarte and then go to System > Preferences > Main Menu

Debian Multimedia :: Creating Sub-menus In GNOME?

Jul 22, 2011

I recently changed from Ubuntu 11.04 to Debian 6.0 and I'm having some trouble editing the applications menu. If I use alacarte to add sub-menus to the Games menu they appear in Applications>Debian>Games rather than Applications>Games. So I tried to do it the manual way. I created .desktop files for all my games and put them in ~/.local/share/applications here is an example:

[Desktop Entry]


But none of my new sub-menus or menu entries in sub-menus appear in my menus or alacarte. I also tried using just categories in gnome-applications.menu but that didn't work either.So what I have at the moment is all my games in one long list, what am I doing wrong?

Ubuntu :: Menus In Lucid (Gnome) Disappear

May 4, 2010

I recently did a fresh install of Lucid on an HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC laptop. At least once a day the main menu and context menus(desktop) in gnome stop working (They will not drop down/ appear). This includes all menus in gtk apps but not menus in not gtk apps such as firefox. I have an autohide panel at the top of the screen for my main menu, shortly after the menus stop working (but never at the same time), the panel wont unhide and the workspace swtcher applet stops working, this corresponds to when the buttons on the panel I can still see (at the bottom) stop working. When the workspace switcher applet goes, so to does the ability to switch using hotkeys (ctr alt left/right).

Suspending then resuming the laptop usually fixes these problem. Sometimes however 2 suspends are needed to fully fix the menus. It is possible for the context menu on the desktop to be working after a suspend, but not the main menu (but not always). A second suspend/ resume fixes this. I also noticed that this happened one of the times I booted a lucid release candidate live CD on my machine. I'm not sure but this may have something to do with the fact that I installed using a release candidate live CD instead of the proper release. (I have done all the updates).

Ubuntu :: Karmic - How To Backup Gnome Menus

May 6, 2010

I have customized the gnome menus. I would like to backup them, to share them with a friend. Wich config file should I backup ? I tried with ~/.config/menus but it didn't worked ... (maybe I did something wrong...).Do you know if there is any file that we can edit with an text editor to configure menus instead of using the application ? The files in .config/menus are quiet obscure :


but I don't understand how alacarte-made-x refers to an exact menu...

Ubuntu :: Gnome 3 - Some Windows Have Old GTK+ Style For Menus?

Apr 26, 2011

So I'm having a weird issue with Gnome 3 in Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit (daily-live 4.25.2011). Anyways here's the issue, some windows File Menu bar is like the classic GTK style and doesn't look anything like the other windows, even though its an updated version. For example this happens on Gnome Terminal (3.0) and Empathy (3.0) and Nautilus (3.0) and a few others, but Firefox is fine, etc.
