Ubuntu :: Accidentally Uninstalled Window List Applet - Get Back?
Mar 29, 2011
So the other day my window list applet was somehow connected with a crash, and ubuntu asked me if I wanted to remove it. I accidentally clicked yes not realizing what it was, and now ubuntu does not list the windows open on a workspace at the bottom of the screen - terribly annoying! how to get this back? Poking through the software manager and synaptic and googling aren't helping.
Fresh install of 9.10 shows buggy behavior for the 'Window List Applet' in the gtk panel.
Usually, clicking on a button in the window list applet does nothing at all. It doesn't un-minimise it, set focus to the window, or bring it to the front.
In 8.10, the window was always raised immediately and given focus.
Sometimes it works, but I've not figured out the state in which it does. I currently have 10 windows open, clicking through them all in the window list raises most of them, but on some nothing happens.
Modifying the 'Window List Preferences' dialog does nothing to fix the problem.
I have checked System->Windows->Window Selection to 'Select windows when mouse moves over them'. 'Raise selected windows after an interval' is not selected.

I was removing the latest two kernels installed because of some issues with compiz and stuffs. And I accidentally removed the only kernel left too. Now, grub has only one entry for Windows. I used "yum remove kernel-.....". Now, I'm stuck, I don't want to re-install the system. It FC11 using LVM. Is there any way I can install re-install the kernel only. What I'm thinking of is copying the kernel image from a live fc11 or installing via rpm on maintenance mode if its possible.
10.04 I managed to delete the Volume Applet that appears by default on the task bar. I'm sure it used to be listed in 'Add to Panel' in other version of Ubuntu however I can't see it there in 10.04. Can someone explain to me how I get it back?
I have accidentally deleted the soundmenu in the panel that comes with the new ubuntu 10.10. After going through various posts all I can see, is that the solutions provided only provide the applet for sound control and does not have any integration with any of the music players (in my case Rhythmbox).I really want that menu back as it made listening to music while using multiple desktops very easy.
I can't log in on my Acer Aspire One running Xubuntu 9.10. I restarted the computer half an hour ago, and when I fill in the log-in window, the pc spins a moment, and the log-in window comes back.I can start up the KDE session, and have done so to post this.Have any of you experienced something similar, and how can I fix it
While screwing around with my settings trying to get 11.3 setup the way I wanted it, I accidentally removed the portion of the bottom panel which displayed the titles for all the current open windows....and I can't for the life of me figure out how to get it back.Can anyone tell me how to add it again? I'm sure its something incredible simple, but I haven't been able to find it
I was messing around with different GUI sessions, and I wanted to try XFCE. Well, I switched to XFCE for a session, and I played around in it. When I went back to a Gnome session, however, it appears that Thunar is now the default filesystem explorer.I get the Thunar explorer. I want the Nautilus explorer. How do I fix this issue?
I am not much experienced with Linux systems and commands. I have been searching with Goggle and trying to solve. Today I had accidentally removed the boot grub menu list. There is a backup file. Now my system boots to >grub command. I have tried all sorts of things from live CD to boot the system I have tried Super Grub also. I am no able to go to the directory where the back up boot menu list is available and change the name from the live CD. Can any one help me with commands to go to the directory and rename the file for booting.
I'm using 10.10, up to date etc. I went into Synaptic Package Manager and installed the package "ldxm" and all its dependancies. Now when I go to log into Gnome desktop, all I can see is my wallpaper. All my girlfriend's files and photos were encrypted in the home directory (or whatever), I selected that option when I installed it.
All I wanted was the new login-screen theme (rather than the rectangular default one) and now I can't seem to revert back I just want to go back to before I installed "lxdm"

i installed sun-java6-jre, sun-java6-jdk, sun-java6-plugin
I was trying to delete a menu item that I no longer needed because its referenced application was uninstalled, but I ended up deleting the "Search for Files" item under Applications > Accessories instead. I hit the revert button but no dice (go figure). Anyone know where I can get another copy of the *.desktop file, or perhaps would someone care to attach it for me?
I recently moved to an area where many people have wireless networks, so when I click on the wireless connection icon in the indicator applet on the gnome-panel, the list of available networks doesn't always list my network.How do I connect to a wireless network (already listed in the Network Connections in the Preferences menu) without using the applet on the panel?
Is there a way I can refresh the list of available wireless networks in the network manager applet? It works correctly when I've just booted but doesn't after I resume after suspending. There's just a message like "wireless networks not available".
I can assure you that the wi-fi is not disabled using a button (my laptop doesn't have such a button), "Fn" key combination or in any other way and the network doesn't go down when I need it.
The network manager applet has disappeared from my top panel so now I cannot see what local wireless networks are available. I just came from the library and was unable to connect to their wi-fi because the computer wasn't trying to detect it. All I have is a network connections applet that seems fairly useless as it just gives me info on networks I've used in the past and not on any currently available networks.How do I get this Network Manager back and functioning?
Yesterday while trying (unsuccessfully) to get a new Bluetooth dongle set up I lost the network manager applet. When I rebooted, after giving up on Bluetooth in Ubuntu, I had no way of connecting to my wireless network. In command line (iwconfig & iwlist scan) I was able to see the wireless router. So the wireless card is working correctly. How do I reinstall the network manager applet? Oh even when use a wired connection to the router there is no connection.
panels can be made transparent by clicking on preferences/background.
But for some reason there is no obvious way to change the transparency of applets. Their transparency depends on the current theme. For example with the theme "radiance" window-switcher and date are opaque. With "human-clearlooks" both are transparent.
Is there a way change the transparency without changing the theme?
I am using Faenza Icons, which is reflected in the icons on the throughout the system except in the windows list applet for certain applications like Firefox and Chrome in the gnome panel. The indicator applet and the menu do show Faenza icons for all the items (including firefox and chrome). I am yet to check for other applications which do not follow the icon theme. I want the windows list to be consistent with the menu and it feels strange that certain applications follow their own icons disregarding the theme I have selected.
