Slackware :: Xfce4-quicklauncher Plugin Not Showing In The Xfce Panel's "add New Items" Menu?
Jul 4, 2011
I installed the xfce4-quicklauncher plugin from a tar file in Slackware 13.37. It is showing as installed in gslapt, but it is not showing in the xfce panel's "Add New Items" menu. (see attached images) I tried rebooting and a few google searches. What must I do to get the xfce4-quicklauncher plug-in to appear in the xfce panel's "add New Items" menu?
Items in my xfce panel are disappearing. First it was the networkmanager launcher which disappeared in xfce but still appeared when I used GNOME, then it disappeared in GNOME. My "x updates are available" icon and volume control icons are also gone, and just now my entire "applications" drop down menu disappeared. I frequently use xmonad so I know all the /bin/ commands for critical programs, but this is really annoying. Also, my desktop keeps changing back to a certain image without me changing it. If I was on windows I would think I had a virus. Maybe I dowlnoaded some bad games I was trying to play in wine? xubuntu 9.10, not updated for a little while since the icon disappeared, Thinkpad T61...
First of all - to refresh icon on desktop i've had to install gamin instead fam (after this, icons on desktop was refresh correctly). I don't know that have connection, but who knows. Anyway - my problem. Things marked as red are duplicated entries in menu. How to simple delete them? Menu are not refreshing too - i unmark "Inne" (Others) in alacarte, but it's still visible.
I'm using Slackware64 13.37 with Robby's Xfce 4.8 build on a laptop with two batteries. I've noticed that when the charge for one battery is depleted, the empty battery icon for the xfce4-power-manager panel applet is displayed as an "image missing" icon (see the attachments for screenshots of how this progresses).
Is this just down to a missing image, or is it more subtle than that? Has anyone else had the same problem, and if so how did you fix it? So far I've tried clearing the GTK+ icon cache and reinstalling the hicolor icon theme package as suggested in other threads in this forum, but nothing changed.
Recently I have installed DockbarX and Cardapio. After installation they are supposed to be found in the Add to Panel items, but both of them are not there.I can run them directly without any problem. Is there anything else I should do manually? I have tried pkill gnome-panel to restart the panel as well.
I'm trying to build and install a package from source. I thought xfce4-systemload-plugin would be neat to have. I found the link to the source at http://goodies.xfce.org/projects/pan...temload-plugin. I struggled all the way through making the package and installing the package using "installpkg". When I try to add the plugin to my panel I don't see it in the "Add New Items" window as I expected.
I'm running Comsol 4.0 and in Unity the top Panel is supposed to have the menu items of the focused application, however Unity does not create them for Comsol. Notice the two pictures below, one running Comsol in Unity, the other one running in Gnome 2.32. Where my File>Edit>Options>Help at Unity
First off, I have spent several hours searching this and other forums looking for an answer to this, and have tried several things, none of which have fixed this issue. Here is what I'm seeing:I performed a new install of FC12 on a Thinkpad R40, 512Mb RAM, with a 40Gb HDD, 38Gb useable, from a live CD. That leaves a little over 9Gb free for expansion. All went well with the install, but the post-boot upgrade would not complete due to an error with the abrt files. I found a thread discussing this and used the suggested method of performing the updates from a shell, which worked fine. There were LOTS of installations, updates, and replacements, and finally the shell returned "Complete!". After a reboot I was going through the Fedora_12_ User_ Guide.pdf and noticed many items missing from the System Menu as described in section 126.96.36.199 "The System menu". Another thread seemed to address a similar issue with su - then yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment", which I did. It updated over 870 items, then completed with no errors. At this point I logged out and back in, no change, and then tried a reboot, which also did not change anything. Finally, I'm appealing to the community.
I installed grub from the extras directory on the Slackware DVD in the hope that it would 'find' all my linux systems and XP. (LILO would not find them.)It sort of found then, in that they seem to be listed in the grub menu at start up, but only the 'title Windows XP on (/dev/sda1)' and 'title Linux on (/dev/sda7)' actually launch.
I got Ubuntu 9.10 running very well. ever since this morning when i booted i have that weird Panel on the desktop towards the left. It is showing basically the Application menu. I dont know why? I know i did not change anything. Also since this morning my right klick on the desktop nothing happen either? i dont want that on the Desktop!
I want to add an app to an xfce menu, but I cannot find the .destop files. I tried the how-to at he xfce site, but it refers to ~/.config/menus, but I do not have that and I can find none of the .desktop files anywhere in my home directory.So, where the heck are the files I need to modify?
the above event usually happens to me when im logged in to xfce my screen suddenly goes black for like 1 sec then my background becomes my background in gnome.. what does this mean? should i remove the gnome or there's some other options i can do to prevent this?
I must have accidentally hit something and as a result the panel at the bottom with the KDE menu and so on is gone. I can recreate widgets and panels but not as the default menu bar at the bottom of the screen. So, now everytime I push something in the background, I have no way to recover it. How do I restore the original default menu bar/panel?
I am using xfce in squeeze and I like xfce4-governor-plugin. But this package is missing in debian, pls can you add this plugin to squeeze repository. xfce4-governor-plugin_0.1.0 works in squezze very well.
