creating your own notification icon for Gnome? Like the Power, Network, and Sound ones. I found something called Zenity but it doesn't seem to be able to create a drop-down menu and I can't see how I'd update the information in the icon once it is created. I have a script set up to check something and want to report the results back via a persistent notification icon, with the ability to change the icon and its properties (mouseover/tooltip text) and drown-down menu text as appropriate.
I have a workstation running Fedora 15 with custom software and settings. I want to make an image of this machine for fast and easy deployment around the office (preferably a DVD, but could also use an external USB drive for install).How would you go about doing this from an existing install?
I have installed Centos 5.4 and then on top of that i have been installing many softwares over the time ( like pbx system , web console , billing etc.) and now it has come to a quite stable stage. the problem is i have to move this installation to another machine with different config etc. even have to install it on multiple systems. the idea is to create a bootable linux iso of the current machine with all the softwares so i can simply put it in a different machine and make it install and run without much fuss. is creating a linux appliance the only solution ? or is there any way to backup the current machine in an iso format and then install it on another machine? also i would like to make this completely hardware independent.
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've recent begun to want to create a spin of Fedora for my high school to offer as an alternative to Mac OS X and Windows. My first attempt with any distro was to try and use Suse Studio, however nothing with packages that I downloaded myself would successfully compile. I then thought that I might try and use some sort of local program do create it with and tried Revisor, however when I made Live Media, Xorg wouldn't start and when I made DVD Install Media the kernel would kernel panic every time on boot.
Is there anyway to solve the problem with Revisor or are there any alternatives?
I have also tried using Ubuntu with the Ubuntu Customization Kit however that didn't work either considering I have to have it in a virtual machine.
I have just created an 11.3 64 bit image using susestudio. All seems well but would like to customize the desktop via my script that I have added. My question is how do I remove the home directory and the trash icon from the desktop? Or better said what is the path to removing the symbolic link, I cannot find the symbolic links in the desktop directory. It is empty, I do not see any symbolic links under /home/test/Desktop?
I have recently installed Faenza icon theme and just began to notice the inconsistency of icon emblems being displayed by compiz.Attached image shows the emblems of Chromium, Nautilus and Comix are that of the default icons, while Empathy andCompizConfigSettingsManager displayed the custom icon correctly. The dock displays all apps' icons correctly though.The issue does not occur exclusively to Application Switcher (Alt+Tab), it also occurs with Scale (Super+W), Shift Switcher (Super+Tab).
I am using 64 bit F15 with gnome in fallback mode with compiz.I see the clock in the login screen, but with no changes clock does not show anymore and i can't see the notification area (the four desktops in the right corner as well as the windows name). I have deleted .gconf and .gconfd (that solved a similar issue time ago), but it does not work this time.I have
I have a scheduled backup that runs via anacron, and I currently am writing the output to a log file and mailing the output to root via local mail, see I have tried implemented a notification using libnotify, see Two problems:) I don't get a notification when anacron runs the backup script, I get a notification (sent to my primary user) when root runs a "test" notification script (I strip out the rsync command)) I don't think that this notificication will get delivered if another user is logged in when the backup script is run.I have become accustomed to the notifications that I get from evolution calendar, and I know that if the computer is off when the alarm is to be triggered I still get the notification next time I log in.For what its worth, I am running a Jaunty desktop computer for househould use, and there are two users.
I have a strange and inexplicable problem I've never had before - I can play audio as usual from the terminal on Fedora 14 with my custom 2.6.38 kernel. But, when I log into GNOME, any attempt to use an application that uses audio gives me a "permission denied". The "Sound preferences" shows a dummy output device and no entry in the "hardware" section. Using the distro kernel and a 18.104.22.168-rt kernel from planet ccrma works fine.
Is there anything I'm supposed to build into the kernel that Fedora 14 requires that wasn't a requirement for earlier versions?
Since when did the Rhythmbox notification icon get removed from the panel and merged in with the volume/sound notification icon in gnome?When I started using 10.10 Rythmbox had its own notification icon on the top gnome panel. now i have rebuilt my computer with 10.10 and the icon is gone but the Rythmbox controls are built into the sound notification icon.I did install the updates while the Ubuntu 10.10 install was running (there is an option to download and install update in the OS install wizard).I just want to know if this came down as some kind of update.
I am a naive user in ubuntu and firstly, I do not get a network icon on my notification area. Secondly, when I connect using pon dsl-provider, my connection stays for sometime but it doesn't remain for long. I have to reconnect and again the connection is shortlived...
In the XP version of Thunderbird, a try icon appears when new mail arrives. I noticed in the Linux version I don't get the tray icon. Is there anyway of getting it to show or is it not available in the Linux version?
so far 10.04 is great.. coming over from Fedora.. liking what I see... however, question..
Is there any way to get the default mail icon in the top right corner to notify of new mail in gmail? I found an app that does it, gmail notifier or something.. but seems redundant to have 2 mail icons when 1 would do the job.. but not sure how I'd configure it. I see that I can set up evolution but.. I've got tens of thousands of messages on gmail, and it would take wayyy too long to download.. I'd rather it just notify me of new mail and open a browser to gmail when I click it or something like that. So, any way of doing this?
I'm using ubuntu 10.4 and accidently removed the notification area from the top panel. Since then, I haven't been able to retrieve the icon. As I've read in many threads, I've added a new panel and added a notification error, but the area stays empty. (see screenshot) My other icons like the volume control and the amarok icon were gone as well, but setting up a new indicator applet did the trick. Still, the skype icon won't come back, I've even removed Skype and reinstalled it, but nothing changed. how I could get the icon back again?
It is mentioned in bugs and other posts, but they are old and don't provide an answer. On my small screen, the extra horizontal spacing/padding between the icons in the notification area takes up far, far too much space.Is there a way to reduce the spacing/padding. Preferably, I would put it back to what it was in Karmic which I think was about half the current spacing/padding.
The icons in the notification area became out of order when I switched displays (laptop / external display). I was able to rearrange all of them by right-click > Unlock from panel > Move except for the wireless icon which doesn't have a "Lock to panel" option when I right click it. Is there a way to move it back to the left of the date?
