General :: Video Obscuring Drop Down Menu?

Sep 15, 2010

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.

Fedora :: Hotkey Doesn't Work When A Menu Is Showed Or 3d Application Is Started?

Jun 20, 2010

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.

Fedora :: Firefox Drop Down Menu In Gnome 3?

Sep 8, 2011

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.

General :: How Does "Drag And Drop" Work In The X Window System

Aug 16, 2011

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.

General :: Menu Bar Missing In KDE After Updating / Get It To Work Again?

May 29, 2010

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.

How do I get it to work again?
