I feel like this is a RTFM question, so if anyone wants to just direct me to the right manual, that's fine.
I just installed gnome-shell and i cant seem to find anyway to customize anything, esp. the task bar, the clock, et cetera
is there a preferences gui or something that I cant find? I feel like i'm trying to use a mac....
It seems pretty sweet, but, i dont know how to get used to not having a window list... i dont wanna pull up the "activities window" or alt tab every time i want switch windows (esp when my hand is used to just moving to the top of the screen and clicking on the right window...
There's this autohide taskbar at the bottom of the screen, but i cant for the life of me figure out what it's for, or how to put things on it....
I installed the Elegant Gnome theme/package and I uninstalled it after about a week of use. Even after reverting back to the ambiance theme, or other themes, I've noticed that some elements of the Elegant Gnome theme have remained (e.g. the panel color and icons in Chrome or after right clicking and the system font).Is there a way to restore the Gnome defaults or Ubuntu system defaults so that everything is as it should be?
I noticed that in Fedora 15 Beta when you choose a minimal install then add ONLY the defaults of the "GNOME Desktop" package, you will get this error: gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 has a required package:
When I look for gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 it is not on any installation menu list. I prefer gnome, but installed KDE and that worked. Any ideas of getting gnome to work?
My monitor kept powering down after 20 minutes so I installed Gnome-power-manager by yum so that I could change the settings. After the installation and every time I try to use it I get a message saying:
The configuration defaults for Gnome Power Manager have not installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator
I'm now unable to effect a change in the power settings and the display keeps turning off.
1) Is someone able to post their config file from a working F12 install? I believe it's /etc/dbus-1/system.d/gnome-power-manager.conf but not certain as I don't have one ;-)
2) ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-power-manager/%gconf.xml is empty - is it empty for someone with a working install?
3) how I can change the power settings without the gui - I'm googling on this point and will post the answer as and when I find it.
Code: [ecvej@desktop ~]$ uname -r 22.214.171.124-127.fc12.x86_64 Edit: In case it is relevant, this is the contents of my /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.system/%gconf-tree.xml
No Matter what I do and change in gnome-tweak-tool, the window title bar won't change to anything else, won't go smaller, even the downloaded themes won't change the bar, and I cant seem to find the needed codes in xml to change them. photo is attached to illustrate the things I need to changeI need to change their size in the first place, and maybe change them to like ambiance or whatever. i've seen many guides on the net, and It still don't find the neeeded solution
is there some wiki page on GNOME or Fedora that list which graphics cards work without problems on Fedora 15 with GNOME Shell? I have tried 3 older cards and they all failed, so I would like to share this info with others so people know which cards to avoid if they want to use full features of GNOME 3 via GNOME Shell.
I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and after recently changing a theme, all icons are stuck as GNOME defaults.I read some threads where it's only the folder icon that's stuck but as it is every single icon then I decided I'd best just ask.
I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 in a virtual box but it has defaulted to Gnome rather than Unity. I've never used Linux before (had to get it for my software paper at uni) so really have no idea what I'm doing. Does anyone know how to fix this?
I recently installed Wheezy from a DVD (that was written almost a year and half ago) to my desktop. The DVD install was a minimal one, so after installation I updated the system and installed gnome. But after reboot, my gnome always falls back to gnome-classic.
May be some firmware is missing, so I installed firmware-linux, firmware-linux-free, firmware-linux-nonfree, firmware-realtek, firmware-atheros (last two following a boot time warning). That did not solve the problem, so I just did Code: Select all$ sudo apt-get install firmware-* That also did not solve the problem.
Then I looked into my .xsession-errors file:
Code: Select all/etc/gdm3/Xsession: Beginning session setup... localuser:somesh being added to access control list openConnection: connect: No such file or directory cannot connect to brltty at :0 gnome-session-is-accelerated: No hardware 3D support.
I also installed "libgl1-mesa-dri-experimental" from another post I found in this forum.But gnome still falls back to gnome-classic.My hardware is: Core i5-4440, Intel onboard graphics, realtek audio and network.
what file do you set the defaults in? I want to set all my users to use a blank screensaver and a time out of 20min. password required. Have been looking all over the place for a valid config file I can edit and the syntax for it. I should also mention I want these to be default for all user that CANNOT be changed except by root. Red Hat running gnome in my case.
I'm running the installer, and "Guided Partitioning" selected partition sizes I'm not completely happy with. I selected separate partitions for /home, /var, /usr, /tmp etc, and by default it gave me only 5GB for the /usr partition. I'd like to take some space away from /home and give it to the /usr partition, but I can't figure out how to do that using the menu options available.
I have set up an HP 5M networked printer. The test page works fine, and the defaults are all set correctly. But when I try to print from my own java programs, the paper size is set to letter, and the margins are all set to 2.54 mm. I can change the paper size to A4 (but I have to do it EVERY time). And the margins won't even let me change them. I type in 0, click in the next field, and the value changes straight back to 2.54. It has been this way for at least the last two releases of Ubuntu.
I want to change the default size of the desktop icons, but 100% is too big, and 66% is too small. Without scaling every icon, is there a way that I can either change the preset percentages in "icon view defaults" or change the default icon size some other way?
I was using simple backup config to backup home to an external drive and it was working fine for the past week or so and today after the backup the computer was restarted and I am unable to log on. I get an error message saying. "the configuration defaults for gnome power manager have not been installed correctly "
I did some googling and the problem is that / is full. I have been trying for the past three hours to delete some space on / so that I can log on. I used ctr-alt-f1 and I can log on there but whatever command I use to delete the root trash it fails. I get an error message saying /root/.local/share/Trash/files/ is not a file or directory.
delete root trash so I can log onto this computer. I have used every variant of sudo rm -r /root/.local/share/Trash/files/ that I could find including one using Chmod. I have already tried the commands found in this tutorial [URL]

I overwrote this laptop from an Ubuntu installation to Fedora 15 (Gnome 3 doesn't work, in fallback mode) and unfortunately the theme is messed up. Using Gnome-Tweak tool I cannot change the shell theme, instead I get the message Quote:Could not list shell extensionsAny way to bypass or clear out so it returns to default?---------- Post added at 10:36 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:12 PM ----------After reboot I had kernel crashes and the system would not boot up anymore. So I re-installed over the previous one, and modified the .gconf, .gconfd, .gnome2 and .gnome2_private before connecting my /home directory to the folder
Seems many icon themes still don't really play nice with gnome shell. They work totally fine for the most part, except the tray icons, they like to change them to their own monochrome icons which usually look bad (and most of the time not even all of them are changed). Is there a way to make any icon theme use the default gnome shell symbolic icons? Right now I am using elementary and its mostly fine, but it changed the battery icon to an ugly smaller version. I'd love to be able to change it to the default icon.
Sooner or later you may experience a Gnome shell lock up. After two weeks of daily use I experienced my first one today: the cursor turned to a hand, and no amount of clicking and pressing Esc would have any effect; Windows key didn't bring Activities in focus either. If you experience these or similar symptoms you can restart the gnome-shell in order to unlock the Gnome session:
1) pass to a console (press Ctrl+Alt+F2)
2) log in
3) execute: ps -ef | grep gnome-shell in order to find the gnome-shell process id (PID); the output may look something like
Pressing Ctrl+ALt+F1 (or, if that doesn't work -- Ctrl+ALt+F7) should take you back to the Gnome session. You should see the restarted gnome-shell. (You can now return to the console, log out from the console, and return to the Gnome session).
I'm looking for a feature in Gnome Shell that would allow me to tile all of the open windows on a desktop. Something akin to Fluxbox's ArrangeWindows keyboard shortcut. I know you can tile two windows side by side, but I would need something capable of tiling ALL of them. Does something like this exist, or would I need to look into writing a Gnome Shell extension?
