Fedora :: Speaker Icon On Task Bar Keeps Getting Changed
Dec 7, 2009
F12 completely patched. Can someone provide some insight into the various volume controls available and why they seem to conflict with each other? The incognito application that loads up on the task bar as a speaker icon keeps getting changed. I try to nail it at 100% but it keeps getting altered - how I don't know. BTW - I say its an incognito application as there is no way to identify what piece of software it actually represents. I assume it's the gnome-volume-control-applet, but there is no way to know for sure as it is devoid of any identification. I run rhythmbox and its volume control also gets altered from where I attempt to set it.
I assume that gnome-volume-control-applet is the master to set a limit on what anything else can do. I then assume that rhythmbos's volume control operates within the envelope that gnome-volume-control-applet allows. Both assumptions are probably wrong as nothing makes any sense. Maybe all the pulseaudio stuff is also in there somewhere messing with the controls, but I see no user space apps to influence pulseaudio. To top it off, I can push the volume control on rhythmbox around from 100% down to 16% and there is no discernible change in volume. When I hit 14% there is a halving of volume, and from there on down to 0% seems to function linearly as expected. Why is there this non responsive range between 16% and 100%?
I've been using Linux for about 15 yrs.. and this is driving me crazy.My daughter often plays on my linux box - a kinda-fresh f12 install.. running gnome.SO one day I go on my computer and my icons on my desktop are as if she changed my display to 800x600 - since the icons are so huge - but web browsing & once i open an application the sizing is fine.Wondering what she may have done to make my icons so huge.i can't seem to figure out any settings for this - she was messing with accessibility options since she had some software keyboard coming up at login too
whether i use dekorator or emerald+compfusion for them manager .;when i change theme my task-bar(the bar where the clock and open windows button is) remain to default like the way it looks before installing all this windows theme manager
I bought a $400 Dell Vostro V130, and decided to put 10.10 netbook remix onto it. (Vostro V130 owners: after the reboot into the new system, there is no GUI. worse, after log in, a startx means the screen goes dead. fortunately, a power key event is still detected, so reboot still works cleanly. after I did a full apt-get update, apt-get dist-upgrade, and apt-get upgrade, the screen and remix worked.)
I would now like to increase the bass, systemwide (so that ..... gets sound that is a little better). the speaker icon on the top right gets me into sound preferences, but I do not see an equalizer.
when i start my skype account after login, I minimize and on the task bar appear the Icon , but few minute after, the icon disappear from the task bar. If I check the process (wy typing ps -aux | grep skype) i found the process of skype, but I'm unable to get it in foreground (nor with alt-tab key. I was unable to see the skype icon).so every time I have to kill the process ad start it again.
Has Ubuntu a tray icon for updates when this are available?In 9.10 and now in 10.04 when an update appears in Update Manager nothing appears in task bar. (Like Windows Update or Mint).I have enabled the options for this in Update Manager Settings... (Search Updates daily) but.
I run Ubuntu 10.10, recently I got this problem. if I open more than one program, and click on icon of them on task bar to switch between them, KDE crash and restart with log in screen. now since 2-3 days this restart also happening when I ALT+TAB to switch between running programs .
This has been bugging me for a few weeks now all of a sudden i lost my email icon chat etc and the volume icon in the top notification area. i have tried deleting and re adding the notification area back but they are still missing. also sometime when i boot up i loose my minimize and close window icons on the windows??? not sure if this connected i am running Ubuntu 10.04 on a dell vostro 200
I am running Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Remix on a Toshiba Netbook NB300. After performing an upgrade I find myself unable to connect to my wirless network and have lost the wifi icon in the task bar. Ethernet connectivity is however working.
iwconfig shows: wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:off/any Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=20 dBm Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power Management:off ifconfig shows
I need to take to bring back wireless connectivity to my netbook and restore the wifi icon to the task bar.
My Network-Manager icon used to show as a diagonal line with a ball in the middle, now it shows as an Up-Arrow-next-to-a-Down-Arrow. Anybody know why the icon has changed? Is its appearance controllable by me--can I change it back to the old icon display?
When I freshly installed Kubuntu all was just fine.I was curious about how the netbook environment would look even though I am on a Desktop. So I tried it out and everything went fine.I switched back to the Desktop environment and noticed that the widget on my desktop, which normally shows the items of my desktop folder,changed into an icon I have to click first before I can see the content.I rather have it as if was when I installed Kubuntu.
I switched on my machine this evening and the first thing I noticed was the home icon in the unity launcher has changed, then I noted then I noted that the window switcher icon, power-off icon and me icon in top right are also different.
On starting nautilus (clicking on home icon) it looks more like thunar (although about says its not). A screen shot showing "nautilus-thunar" and the desktop is attached.
Firefox's minimize, maximize and close icons have also changed - see other screen shot.
Anyone got any idea what's going on? Anyone else have this.
I recently updated my computer Using 9.10 and I updated on the 14th. Before the update my sound was working great. No problems, but afterwards my sound is completely gone and under hardware when I click the sound option on the speaker icon I get nothing listed under hardware.
I am using the HP DV2810 US notebook PC. With this being listed as the audio device.
I will also list the updates from my synaptic history. I'm having to use Win7 . And i only wanted that for the few games that one run well in wine.
Anybody knows how to fix overlapping tasks in KDE system taskbar?Here System Monitor overlaps with digiKamWorkaround to rearrange icons - start any new task.Sorry for taking real photo of the screen. When I do PrintScreen KSnapShot task appears in the list and makes all task to rearrange. The resulting screenshot contains already fixed view.
After upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04 all of a sudden, the task manager or task bar, keeps changing length. The individual window "buttons" themselves keep changing size - flashing even, and the space between them also changes. It is driving me nuts! The little system tray(?) icons no longer appear in the system tray, but all stacked on top of each other in the top left corner.
How do you launch a task from a terminal command line interface and it not be kill'ed if you close the terminal window. Like if I run jedit I type jedit & which launches jedit as a backgorund task. But, if I close terminal window, jedit dies to. How do I laucnch jedit and completely divorce it from the terminal task?
It always shows a same icon, for every application which shows message tray icon. I just did some shell extension work after fresh installation of F15, nothing related on message tray. Don't know how to change it back.Dose anyone knows how to customize message tray icon for gnome-shell?
I have my task list in evolution (mainly so it can sync with my phone and online task list) but I always forget to look at the task list. Is there an application or plugin which periodically displays the contents of the tasklist or even better, it briefly displays the most urgent/important tasks when I login? Or anything else which automatically displays the most important tasks. Currently I have to open the task list and look at them (which I usually forget). I do not mean some kind of alarm when the task is due but more a daily reminder of what to do.
in fedora 10 things were pretty simpler . all i had to do was double click the volume icon and i could change the volume of each of my speakers individually ...
in fedora 11 that was not possible , this adjustment of volume had become more complicated, however there was this "advanced volume control" or something ... i dont quite remember its name , but thanks to that i could still adjust volume of each of my speakers individually ...
in fedora 12 i m not able to find that application - "advanced volume control" ... how do i adjust the volume of my each of my 5.1 speakers in fedora 12 ?
