General :: Display Stretched With No Task Bars Showing

May 21, 2011

i have a hp laptop with a cracked screen so i'm using and external monitor. It is an HP vs15c. Now it was working fine.. perfect even.. until i was working on a second virus infect pc in bed with the keyboard connection to this pc next to me. What happened next is a bit embarrassing and also why i have no idea what i did or how to fix it. Well i found the virus in the laptop i was repairing (god i hate vista.) when i wiggled in excitement .. only the keyboard slide under my breast and the next thing i know my screen looks stretched and i have no bars. i can move my mouse beyond the right and the bottom edges of the screen and i can't change anything cause i can't get any option.. or least i don't know how to get them without the bars.. i can't even reboot if i wanted to cause my task bar is GONE. the bottom active bar is there.. off screen where i can see it but if i drag my mouse down far enough it is there to click on things. However the top bar that i need is gone. I am NOT good with terminal.. nor do i know how to open it without the top task bar. Right now i'm cursing a storm and being very angry about being a woman.

Ubuntu :: Task Bars Gone After Upgrade

May 1, 2011

I have just upgraded from Ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04 and after the restart I lost everything in my top task bar (all I have is a blue strip) and I don't have a side task bar at all(just the space where it should be). Has anyone got any idea how to get them back?

Ubuntu :: Startup Application Opening Behind Task Bars?

May 11, 2011

im building a small wallboard machine, using ubuntu 10.10 as 11.4 refuses to load correctly on any of my spare machines.but, anyway, thats not the issue, ive installed chromium-browser, and added it to the startup applications with


chromium-browser -kiosk http://wallboard
where http://wallboard is the wallboard info thats being displayed.

that works, BUT the browser is opening BEHIND the top 'menu' bar, and the bottom 'task' bar, which obviously, is not what i want. how do i set it to either hide these 'bars' or open the browser in front of them like it does if i manually run the command from a terminal?

Ubuntu :: Changing Resolution In VMware Messed Up Task Bars

Jan 29, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 9.10 with VMware Workstation 6.5.0. The install went fine and I ran the updates and everything was working great. Then I decided to change the resolution to something a little larger that was actually workable and after a restart my taskbars were all messed up. I deleted that machine and then opened up the backup. I changed the resolution again and after a restart, same result. I've tried it with multiple resolutions with different aspect ratios all with the same results. I've included a link below with a screen shot of the desktop so you can see what it's doing. Now, it's not unusable but distracting to me nonetheless.

Ubuntu :: Move The Side And Or Top Task Bars As Well As Change There Properties (auto Hide) ... 11.04

Aug 14, 2011

Is there a way to move the side and or top task bars as well as change there properties (auto hide). I know how to add programs to the side bar but can't figure out how to change the top bar menus. When I ran 32bit thru a windows vm I had a top bar where I could access the programs and no side bar. I liked it better than the 2 bar setup in my 64bit wubi install. Can it be changed?

General :: Programs No Longer Showing In Task Bar - System Running Much Slower After Update

Apr 26, 2011

using mint 10, now after updates my system is barely working. The programs were no longer showing in the task bar, and the system was running much slower.


This repeated over and over again. My temperature was never to high 40-55, and I found a suggestion to update my kernel to 2.6.37-020637. After doing so there is no longer the thermal limit exceeded error but the computer is still running poorly. The system is slow and again no programs are showing up in the task bar when open.

Ubuntu :: Title Bars Gone And Now Nothing Showing?

May 13, 2011

'm running Windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.04 dual-boot. After installing Ubuntu, I installed CompizConfig. So, here's my problem. I tried to enable the 3d workspace seitcher and when I did the title bars for all the windows disappeared. And I couldn't disable the 3d switcher. Not knowing what else to do, I restarted the computer. Now when I log in, it goes to my wallpaper but nothing works. All can do is shut down/restart by pressing ctrl alt delete. Is there anything I can do other than reinstalling?

General :: Before Showing Up Loginscreen Display The Message Box - ICEauthority Not Update ?

Nov 30, 2010

I have OpenSuse 11.3, with KDE4. a few days ago, after an upgrade, are presenting several flaws in the system configuration.

But I think the cause of all is that at startup, before showing up loginscreen display the message box


Could not update ICEauthority file / var / lib / gdm / .ICEautority.

I gave CRTR Alt F1 to switch to text mode, and consult the file in that directory to verify the existence of the file and its permissions:


I've checked some forums, but apparently they relate to other scenarios that describe the solution does not work

General :: Evolution Task List Reminder (sync With Phone And Online Task List)

May 19, 2011

I have my task list in evolution (mainly so it can sync with my phone and online task list) but I always forget to look at the task list. Is there an application or plugin which periodically displays the contents of the tasklist or even better, it briefly displays the most urgent/important tasks when I login? Or anything else which automatically displays the most important tasks. Currently I have to open the task list and look at them (which I usually forget). I do not mean some kind of alarm when the task is due but more a daily reminder of what to do.

Ubuntu Installation :: Task Manager Or Task Bar, Keeps Changing Length?

May 29, 2011

After upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04 all of a sudden, the task manager or task bar, keeps changing length. The individual window "buttons" themselves keep changing size - flashing even, and the space between them also changes. It is driving me nuts! The little system tray(?) icons no longer appear in the system tray, but all stacked on top of each other in the top left corner.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Microphone Recording Playback Stretched

Feb 8, 2010

Installed Skype latest version on a Mythbuntu 9.10 pretty vanilla install. Tried testing the microphone with it, after getting into AlsaMixer and enabling the mic and such, I got it playing back something but it is like stretched out, so playback goes really slow and deep. what can I do that is more basic for testing the mic to remove Skype from the equation. Mythbuntu is really pared back, so I will likely have to install, I like to keep it to the minimum. What is the easiest way most people test a mic? Second, just in general, what could cause this to act this way. I don't see anything in the mixer that makes me think it is causing it

Ubuntu :: Showing Display Settings From Command Line?

Feb 23, 2010

I'm sure this is a very simple task but I don't have a lot of experience with Linux. I need to view what my display adapters settings are, specifically the refresh rate. I have found plenty on how to change the settings but not how show its current setup. I am troubleshooting an vga splitter/extender issue on a digital signage unit where the master screen syncs up but the remote screen does not, I think it has to do with H-Sync V-Sync or refresh rate.

General :: Screen Not Showing On Laptop But Showing On Projector When Connected

Apr 18, 2011

When I try to connect a projector to my laptop (already running) and hit the fn+f7 (the designated button for switching screen), nothing happens. I see "no source found" on projector screen and my laptop screen works perfectly. Now if I restart the laptop with the projector connected, I see all the intial booting messages on the projector screen (not on my laptop), then the gnome login screen appears on both the projector screen and laptop (when the login screen appears on laptop it looks like it has lower resolution than my usual laptop resolution). But immediately after I log in, my laptop screen goes blank, and projector screen becomes the only active screen.

If I restart without the projector, again all normal operation on laptop screen is restored.

I feel like I am missing some very silly options. Any help is appreciated.

Here is the output of xrandr when the laptop is connected:

General :: Theme In Ubuntu Not Applied To Menu Bars At Startup

May 30, 2010

The theme I have chosen in Ubuntu 10.04 (Ambiance with buttons in the upper right-hand corner) is not applied to the menu bars at boot/login. Menu and title bars should be very dark with a white font. When I boot the computer, the application title bar is correctly formatted, but the main menu bar of gnome and the menu bars of all applications are black font on gray background. When I open the theme selection (in German Einstellungen | Erscheinungsbild, in English likely something like Preferences | Appearance).

The correct theme is applied to menu bars without that I have to select the theme again; simply opening the Appearance dialog suffices. First I did not name my modified theme (showed up as first theme in the theme selection dialog, user modified). In trying to solve the above issue I gave the theme a name, but the strange behaviour persists. Where I can make the theme automatically and completely applied at boot.

General :: Linpus Lite - Desktop Shows Black And White Bars

Jun 10, 2010

I prefer ubuntu (which I have been meaning to install for a while) but my netbook currently has linpus lite on it. (It's an acer aspire one). One night I left the netbook sitting open (forgot to close it), and when I went to use it the next day, when I started it up, the desktop did not show the normal icons in the background. It still showed the bar at the bottom with the connection icon, power icon, etc. as well as the "Internet" search bar in the top right corner.

But instead of the usual linpus desktop icons, there are just black and white horizontal bars, with some coloured dots in the black bars. I can still use the terminal to open firefox, and presumably other programs. It still connects to wifi signals, and the bottom bar looks normal and functional. I am posting this message right now with my netbook, and it doesn't seem to have lost any functionality. I would much rather just click on things most of the time instead of opening terminal for everything.
