Ubuntu :: How To Make Panels Fully Transparent

Aug 20, 2010

I found out how to make the panels fully transparent so I thought I would share it with others. When you set the panel to be transparent in the default Ambiance theme in Ubuntu 10.04, you will find that some panel items' backgrounds are not transparent, but you can make them transparent and consistent with others, following these steps:

Go to Applications (or Main Menu) > Accessories > Terminal.
Enter cp -R /usr/share/themes/Ambiance ~/.themes/
Enter gedit ~/.themes/Ambiance/gtk-2.0/gtkrc to open Ambiance's ftkrc file with gedit.
Search for this line bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "panel_bg.png"
Comment out the line by placing a # at the beginning of the line, like this: # bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "panel_bg.png"
Save the gtkrc file.

Go to System > Preferences > Appearance, switch to the other theme and then back to the Ambiance theme.

Ubuntu :: Battery Status Fully Charged But Not Working

Jun 18, 2010

I've just installed 10.04 and everything seemed to work fine. I am running it on a Q-Force laptop. The moment I removed the electricity plug though, my laptop shut down in less than 5 seconds. I'm guessing my battery isn't fully recognised. When I check the power management menu under battery, I get all information. Status = fully_charged.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDMI On GA-H55 Audio Not Working Fully

Dec 9, 2010

I have been pining over and over through 100s of forum posts to no avail. My problem is that my audio through HDMI does not work fully. I upgraded to 1.0.23 alsa release, which seemed to help, but I cant get anything besides 'Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output' from System-Preferences-Sound. Maybe this is normal, and I will have to rely on xbmc, etc. to provide 5.1 surround sound?

Ubuntu :: Two Panels At Screen Top - Panels Lose Order On Reboot

May 12, 2011

I find that I prefer have both panels located at the screen top. That way I don't have to go to the bottom of the screen for one thing, then back to the top for another. I arranged the panel so the regular top one is on top,then the panel that contains the open applications is underneath.The problem is, when I reboot, the panels lose their order. First, the regular top panel initializes, then the bottom ones starts and pushes the first panel down, which becomes what you see in the picture: I would like to find a way to keep them in the opposite order of what you see in the picture, but every time I reboot they end up in that order.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Karmic Running Smoothly On Imac 7,1 Aluminum 20" Sound Wifi Wlan Video Working Fully

Feb 8, 2010

I have Karmic Koala 9.10 working (near) perfectly on my iMac7,1, as identified by


NOTE: See below for Lucid 10.04 update to these instructions

IMPORTANT: You need to complete the installation procedure while connected to internet via the WIRED network. Then you can enable the wireless by installing the restricted drivers, after the install is complete. Also the fglrx ATI Video driver is effortlessly installed via Menu > System > Administration > Hardware Drivers

The sound card gave me some trouble, as it is an Intel HDA Model, reported as 'Codec: Realtek ALC889A' by


It shows up in lspci as:


It sounded rather tinny at first, when I tried mbp3 and other model names. Then I added the following line to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf :


After reboot, my sound is full and can be put much louder than before. Jack detection works. Some people might have to leave out the power saving options. See below.

dmesg reports:


Sources consulted are mostly the kernel documentation ( Enter into the terminal: sudo apt-get install linux-doc

The relevant info can be found in HD-Audio-Models.txt.gz and HD-Audio.txt.gz in /usr/share/doc/linux-doc/sound/alsa )

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Not Fully Loading KDE Desktop?

Feb 25, 2010

This has happened to me twice in a row while installing kubuntu 9.10 on the same machine:I get the OS installed and it prompts me to reboot the machine. I do so. On the first reboot, the KDE login screen never loads, and I just get a blank black screen.I then do a hard reset. From there, everything appears to work. I use the machine for awhile and all is well. For whatever reason, I end up rebooting, and when I log back in to KDE, not only do I not get my custom wallpaper, but I also don't get any desktop icons, a taskbar, etc.Right-clicks don't even work. The only thing that was loaded both times was the terminal that I had left open the last time.

Sep 25, 2010

I was using WINE and MS Office 2007 properly when suddenly one day MS Office stopped working properly. When saving a file, the application would crash. I decided to uninstall MS Office and to reinstall it. I wasn't able to reinstall it, the installer crashed.I then uninstalled WINE, and erased the .wine directory. I reinstalled WINE and tried to install MS Office. Same problem, the installer crashed. It's a pain not to have MS Office on this computer.What could I do to remove WINE entirely and to start over with a new clean WINE install with MS Office?

Ubuntu :: Can't Fully Change Language In 10.10?

Feb 15, 2011

I have a fresh Ubuntu 10.10 installed in spanish and I found out when I tried to create a new user in English that just part of it is in English. For example, the name of most of the applications are still in Spanish, and all the OS notification are also in Spanish, as most of the programs. I've tried to turn to some other language and exactly the same things are translated.

Ubuntu :: Panel Won't Fully Load?

Apr 5, 2011

First I am running 10.10 since it was released and it was running great. But this morning it does not fully boot. It freezes at the point of loading the panel. At that point I can do nothing but reboot. I tried safe mode and ran a repair on the apps, The problem is still there. I can't get to a terminal only a prompt in safe mode. It must have been an update I did yesterday. When I go to shut down (hit the power button) I get a warning saying the panel is not fully loaded and I have the option to not force a shut down or shutdown.

Ubuntu :: Restricted Items Don't Initialize Fully

Feb 10, 2010

It's my CPU scaling and dual mode modem that aren't initializing properly on startup. The CPU scaling starts up in 'performance' mode and doesn't throttle back to 'on demand' like it should, and like it used to. Also the modem starts up as a usb mass storage device and the boot process should, and used to, toggle it into modem mode.

It certainly looks like it is a user rights issue as both devices require me to sudo the change from userspace. I'm on 9.10 64bit with a fairly new install, I havent done anything abnormal to the system except change the default lang from UTF-8 to ISO-8859. other than that I've only installed packages from synaptic, and done the recommended updates. I don't know exactly where the problem started.

I'm a noobee at reading log files. I generally only get about a half a screenfull read before I realize my eyes are crossing and my brain has gone completely non-functional. Here is the output from dmesg... Very near the end I see it recognize the Cricket(modem) device, but I see no errors...

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid 10.04 Will Not Update Fully

May 13, 2010

When I click on "update" after running a series of updates, I get an error message that says:
"Failed to fetch [URL] 404 Not Found [IP: 80]. Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead."
Yet if I go the address in Firefox, one step at a time from [URL] and continue one step at a time, there is indeed a Packages.gz that I can download, so what is wrong? I do not see that repository listed in sources.list or in the update manager.

Ubuntu :: Won't Fully Boot After Plymouth Change

I changed the Plymouth Theme following the direction on this page:


Basically, I put this in the Terminal: sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth

I then selected a theme (I believe it was spinning something or other). Then I entered: sudo update-initramfs -u

Now, when I boot up, it just sits on a blank screen after I select to start up with ubuntu. I can't boot into ubuntu at all.

Ubuntu :: New Cursor Doesn't Fully Function?

Oct 23, 2010

I am currently redoing my setup and have installed a new cursor called Vienna3Ubuntu. I extracted it to the .icons folder, went to preferences and found it, it the cursor options list, right where it should be, but when I applied it, it only works kinda half way, the normal cursor won't change at all, and the other cursors only work in by browser and when I am reszing windows and such. Why won't the cursor work like it should? I am using compiz and I wonder if that has something to do with it. I have already tried restarting, relogging, reinstalling, and fiddling with general options in compiz.

Ubuntu :: How To Fully Automate A Minecraft Server

Jun 29, 2011

I'm trying to fully automate a Minecraft server, and I decided to use Ubuntu 11.04 on this computer. The computer I'm using for it is an old computer (it's the old family PC, it's about 5 years old (and running amazingly now that I've formatted the hard drive (compared to how it used to run))) so it won't run the Unix environment (or something like that) and runs the Gnome environment instead.

Anyways; the server auto-starts when my computer turns on (my computer also automatically turns on). Now all I need to do is have my computer auto-shutdown at 12:00AM as well as enter the command "stop" into the running terminal. I plan to later add more commands (such as automatically welcoming people to the server when they connect, but that's not important right now and I'll likely be able to figure out if I can get this working).

This is the command I'm using to shutdown the computer:

sudo shutdown -P 24:00

However, it doesn't work. First of all, I need to enter my password, so I need some way to have the shell file enter my password for me whenever the terminal asks for it. Second of all, it just plan doesn't work, even if I enter my password (like, the countdown doesn't appear). As for entering commands into the terminal, the only way I can think of is:echo "stop" But the problem is that doesn't work because it wont enter into the running terminal (and I don't know how to do that).

Ubuntu Installation :: Wont Fully Start Or Shutdown?

Dec 9, 2010

I finally got Ubuntu to run on my laptop. However, I can only get it to run in safe mode. When I turn it on, it goes to the login screen. I select my username, type in my password and press login. Then it either goes back to the login screen after thinking for a while or just gives me the background image. If I select to login in safe mode, I can get to the desktop and everything works fine from there, although in safe mode.Then, when I try to shutdown, it closes everything up and goes black, but doesnt actually turn off. The Caps Lock light blinks.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Graphics Card Fully Supported In 11.04?

Jul 12, 2011

I have a lenovo ideapad z570 with intel i5 2nd gen 2410m processor and intel integrated graphics. In lshw, my graphics are shown as: "2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller"

glxinfo| grep render
direct rendering: Yes

OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Sandybridge Mobile GEM 20100330 DEVELOPMENT x86/MMX/SSE2
Compiz works fine, so do some 2D games. However, performance is choppy on most other games(2D and 3D).

Are these graphics fully supported by Ubuntu yet? If not, does any other linux flavour have support for this?
