Fedora :: Unable To Set Title On Xterm?

Dec 30, 2009

The usual operations in starting the xterm app don't seem to apply in Fedora 12. I usually prefer to put my own title and other attributes when starting an xterm. But the operation: xterm -T 'Some Title' does not do anything. Instead, the current directory is always displayed in the title bar of the window (on kde). Where is the resource file to disable this default behavior?

Slackware :: Terminal Xterm Title Is Too Dynamic (title Doesn't Change Manually)

Aug 21, 2010

So when I upgraded to Slack64 13.1 on my asus MB homebrewed desktop and Slack 13.1 on my compaq presario a900 laptop, I started having issues with the xterm title (in Terminal--not Konsole) being too dynamic. By "too dynamic" I mean that I can't actually change the title. The dynamic title (from my .bashrc) is basically just pwd. Whenever I try to set the title (via terminal->set title (menu)), I changes it for a split second, and then reverts back to the dynamic title.

This is merely a petty annoyance, so to get around it, I added an xtitle function that I grabed somewhere online (just echos "�33]0;$*�07"). So for nano-ing some file, I'd type:xtitle some_file.txt; nano some_file.txt

That works just fine (kind of annoying to type though). running xtitle alone won't actually change the name either though (I'm pretty sure it's the same command as what terminal does anyway). That is, running: xtitle some_file.txt

changes the title for a split second, and the reverts back to my old pwd.What I really want is to have it dynamically name it "some_file.txt" whenever I use nano, but that appears to be a functionality of zsh (with the preexec() fxn).I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and if you have a fix for it.

Software :: Set Xterm Title To Gnu Screen Session Name?

May 5, 2009

I usually have several xterms open, with each one running a different gnu screen session. It would be useful if--at a glance--I could see the session name in the xterm title bar. That way I would be able to quickly tell which screen sessions are running in which xterms. This would be very useful when alt-tabbing.

I know that there are termcap, terminfo, and termcapinfo commands available, but I don't know how to use these. I also know that there's an $STY environment variable that stores the session name. Also, I do not want to lose my current "hardstatus alwayslastline" bar. It seems like this should be independent from the xterm title, anyways.

Slackware :: Intel Graphics / Vertical Lines From Xpdf/gv Under Xterm Stick To Xterm Window Making It Unreadable?

Jun 13, 2011

Start xpdf or gv. Click an xterm to be active and slide it over xpdf/gv. Vertical lines from xpdf/gv under the xterm stick to the xterm window above and make it unreadable.

The problem does NOT show with KDE default settings with display effects on but does show in fvwm, xfce etc, and in KDE without effects.

On a system with a Sandy Bridge integrated graphics (i5-2400) the problem went away by downgrading to xf86-video-intel-2.13.0. But it was not enough for another system with 945G which needed downgrading to xf86-video-intel-2.12.0.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Move Windows By Dragging Their Title Bars - Cannot See Close "X" Button In The Title Bar

Feb 8, 2010

Everything worked 100% great untill I change color depth to 16 bits.I do not want 24 Bits, I want 16 Bits. I have good reasons. Never had this problem in Gutsy 7.10 ...I deeply regret in upgrading to 9.10 ...

My video card:

Gforce 7950 GX2

Changes to xorg.conf file: Firstly, I saved it at 16 color depth with the sudo nvidia-settings and by clicking on the save to xorg.conf file Button. Rebooted computer....... It worked, saved file, and I got the following bugs:

*Cannot move windows by dragging their title bars.
*Cannot see close "X" Button in the title bar.
*Cannot see Minimize Button in the title bar.
*Cannot see Maximize Button in the title bar.

Went back to 24 bits and problem got resolved. Then i tryed: I did sudo gedit xorg.conf I changed all the 24's with 16's ... Rebooted computer....... It works GOOD... BUT: I got the same bugs from before. I will retype them below

*Cannot move windows by dragging their title bars.
*Cannot see close "X" Button in the title bar.
*Cannot see Minimize Button in the title bar.
*Cannot see Maximize Button in the title bar.

My xorg.conf file:

# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 1.0 (buildd@palmer) Sun Feb 1 20:21:04 UTC 2009

Fedora :: No Sound With Xterm

Apr 28, 2011

I have a normal computer installed (F14, 32 bits) with a sound card correctly installed. In a normal configuration into runlevel 5, I can play sound and the sound card is visible from the gnome-volume-control window.
I should modify the computer running a naked X server (without window manager and other stuff) and two applications (an xterm and a special application managing sounds). The last application is a text based application and could run on a text console. I have the X server running because I display picture sent from another computer. Currently the computer boots on runlevel 3 and logs in automatically. If I start manually my special application, it runs fine. I create a .xinitrc script with the xterm command and I change the .bashrc calling xinit. Each application runs well independently. My problem is when I try running my special sound application from the xterm window. I have no sound. If a run the gnome-volume-control command, the program shows that no sound card is available.

I suppose the X server removes the original sound configuration of the text mode during its initialization and could not initialize correctly after that the sound card.

how it is possible to initialize the sound card manually into the X server? Do I need running some gnome command before I can call my application?

Fedora :: VLC Has No Title Bar When Maximized?

Jun 4, 2011

I've finally gotten around to installing Fedora 15 and I've been having some trouble with VLC. When it is maximized the title bar at the top disappears. The VLC window is also covering up the panel at the top of the screen. This makes it so that I have no way to minimize it or even restore it to a window once it is open. I also can't switch to other windows. So right now if I have vlc open the rest of my computer is completely unusable.

Fedora :: F12 Compiz Title Bar Is Missing

Nov 24, 2009

I just got F12 and installed it on a new hard drive on my Dell Inspiron 1501. I have an AMD 64 x2 and an ATI Express 200M video card. I installed CompizConfig setting manager, which did nothing. I then installed Compiz Fusion Icon. This makes compiz work but once I start it all of my windows are missing the title bar. I'm noob and not a programmer but pretty good and figuring things out.In Emerald Theme Manager I can view available themes select them, edit them, etc. There seems to be no way to apply them. Am I missing something or is it just not working?

Fedora :: F12 - Gnome Title Bar Controls?

Mar 13, 2010

It's hard to tell for sure if this is related to a recent update or not. There've been a bunch for sure In any of the GUI the title bars, there used to be 3 boxes on the right end. Minimize, Maximize and close. They're gone. Totally vanished for all users.

L click on the icon near the left end of the title bar or a R click anywhere on the title bar brings up a menu with such options (and others), but I sure do miss my 'close' button!

Fedora :: Killing Xterm Causes A Permanent Black Screen

Sep 8, 2011

Our Fedora 15 linux box have the following requirements:

1. Runlevel 3
1. Autologin as root for convenience
2. Run Xorg
3. Run xterm on display :0.0
4. Lauch our program on display :0.0

So we simply put step 2 ~ step 4 in the .bash_profile of root user:

# .bash_profile
if [ -f "/.bahsrc ]; then
export DISPLAY=:0.0
Xorg &
sleep 3 # for some reason, we need this three seconds to make sure that xterm start up successfully
xterm &

The problem is, if I issue "kill xterm", it flashes out some messages disappearing so quick that I can't even read, and then leave me with a black screen with a cross cursor at the center. The system seems to be crashed, even the numlock doesn't work. Since we execute xterm & during logging in, now I can crash my system simply by pressing ctrl + C ! That's disaster!
