received my invite for google music then I quickly realized the Music Manger isn't for Linux yet. So after searching around a bit I found this script that was suppose to make it run under wine which it did, but also after running that script my applications menu no longer drops down any help would be greatly appreciated I'm on Ubuntu 10.04
On any video I play, the picture is on top of the drop down menus for the player so they can't be seen- they drop down and work and can see the parts that are to the sides of the video picture. This happens on every video player I have tried -Movie player, GNOME MPlayer, VLC. Running Mint 9 on an Elonex webbook.Completely new to Linux so may be missing something obvious.
i am having a problem on Ubuntu 10.10. In system menu, there is no Administration or Preferences menu.Also, application menu does not show anything. I am using Ubuntu since 2 weeks and still not used to to the terminal commands for running applications and admin tools.
one more thing.When i booted my PC today it reported an error and process terminated before reaching the login window. So i restarted and chose recovery mode. it also reported some errors and tried to fix the problem. it deleted some files i think. and my system is working again but with above mentioned problem.
just click the [Computer] button at the left-bottom corner of the GNome desktop, the menu will shown, now press the printscreen button [PrtSc], nothing happen. no screenshot was made.or open any application , then click the menu like [file], let the menu list shown, then press [PrtSc] button, same thing, nothing happen.
I would like to know if there is a solution to this problem. The multimedia hotkeys (play/pause, stop, volume up/down, volume mute, ecc) stop working when i open any menu (for example mintmenu, that i use, or any menu of firefox like bookmarks) or if i start an application, such as openarena. The major problem is for volumes keys, that stop working in these cases.
Any ideas? I tried to change keyboard model, disable hotkeys mapped in prefereces->keyboard shortcut (with this they just stop working), but nothing changed.
Before upgrade to 11.04, I can drag and drop some *bin or *sh file to taskbar as quick launcher. So, I want to drag these applications to the launcher panel in ubuntu 11.04, but it's rejected. I searched and only found that I can drag an application from app list to the launcher instead of.
I'm a bit of a newbie, so here is a newbie questionHow do i change my desktop menu, so that it becomes drop-down panels in the top instead of a menu on the left-hand side?I need the answer carved out in stone in order to understand
When I right-click on firefox, the menu that appears is sometimes quite long depending on where on the screen I click, and usually the top option dissappears under that top Panel of Gnome shell, so that I have to guess and click on the panel to get an "Open in New Tab" (which is usually my first option.) Is there a way to make it remain within the visible area or something? I'm on Fedora 15 64-bit.
On any video I play, the picture is on top of the drop down menus for the player so they can't be seen- they drop down and work and can see the parts that are to the sides of the video picture. This happens on every video player I have tried -Movie player GNOME MPlayer, VLC. The image that shows the problem had to be taken with a camera as using the screen capture looked as though the video picture wasn't even there (image also attached)
I'm currently tweaking ubuntu to my liking. I got rid of the "menu bar" and replaced it with the "Main Menu". I don't like the black arrow on the Main Menu so I followed the instructions to get rid of it posted hereI got to the part where I type "sudo make" However, I get the exact error posted hereI tried to follow the solution, I installed libpanel-applet2-dev using synaptic. I tried to edit the "Makefile" in the directory /var/cache/apt-build/build/gnome-panel-2.30.2. However, when I opened this make file I did not find any line calledpanel-compatibility.$(OBJEXT) panel.$(OBJEXT) applet.$(OBJEXT)
So I've been messing around with the opacity settings in ccsm and I can't figure out how to make the drop menu color completely transparent.. I can adjust the opacity in ccsm, but that also changes the opacity of the tekst, and that's not so good..
I have (had?) ndiswrapper-dkms installed, and used it to get a wireless card working. After a kernel update, the card stopped working, and I tried to re-install it. Part of the directions included doing -r to about everything connected to the original install. Now I still show "Windows Wireless Drivers" in the drop-down menu, but when I click on it, it "flashes" for a split-second, and then disappears.'ve tried re-installing it from Synaptic, and doing "sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-dkms" but it just returns saying that I already have the latest version.
i have a problem with th home folder button. When I click the button from the drop down ''PLACES'' menu i get this "Error File not found'' but if i go to places>computer>home folder, then it opens. If i type in ''CWD" i get this "/home/piepie''.so the home folder does exist, and if i type /home/piepie is a directory.
I'm an old-school dinosaur, and I'd like to understand how drag and drop works on the X window system under Linux. Is it build into the X protocol? Is it a function of the window manager? Do applications have to be aware of drag and drop? Is it both the applications and the window manager?I'm looking for a general technical understanding. If I have specific questions about how to modify an app to support drag and drop, I'll ask them over on Stackoverflow.
So I've kind of got sick of the stock Ubuntu 10.10 GDM theme, so I really want to change it. I Googled how to, and every tutorial brought me to the "Login Screen Settings" dialog and told me to either drag and drop the .tar.gz theme into the window or press the "Install" button. However, drag and drop wouldn't work, and there was no "Install" button.
I was wondering how to make, what i know (ok vaguely remember) as a .bat file, or how to add a executable file to the drop down menues.i got freecol 0.9, and i can run it if i go into terminal, cd to the directory then type in java -Xmx256M -jar FreeCol.jarI bit obtuse, looking to know how to streamline.
The menu bar - and pretty much everything else on my desktop - has disappeared after I let the system update itself.
Only the bar at the bottom is still there, and I can't start any applications, not even a terminal. No icons, no background, no anything (I got Firefox running by clicking on a link in the About KDE menu item in the task manager, which i started with ctrl-alt-del)
During the update the system just restarted, and afterwards it was like that.
