I was messing around with my monitor settings in Ubuntu 10.04 [The first time when everything worked right away with my system!], and I stupidly deleted all the applets in the upper panel, and now I can't find them anymore. I looked though the applet selection screen, and I couldn't find the sound applet, the all-in-one power off/log out/switch user applet, or the email/chat applet. How do I get these applets back on my top panel?
The clock applet and indicator applet in Gnome garble up from time to time. I have 2 Ubuntu installations at home and several others at work, some 32-bit and some 64-bit, all exhibiting the same issue occasionally. I think it's a bug in the Gnome panel. In the attached screenshot you can see an example of how the time in the clock applet is garbled up.
It's not always the clock that is affected, some other times it's the login name, the weather, or the shutdown button... Worst case, the shutdown button becomes totally invisible preventing me to log off (workaround: use the three-fingered salute).
Just upgraded a dual monitor install of ubuntu from 10.10 to 11.04, reverted to ubuntu-classic (gnome desktop), changed to metacity window manager, but the panel applets (clock, window liet, notifications etc..) only run on ONE of the two screens (:0.0 and :0.1), the other screen they always crash when I try to add them to the panel. how do i get applets to run on BOTH screens at the same time like they used to.
It seems like every few times that I log into Fedora 12, running Gnome, my Panel Applets will move, re-arrange, or get deleted. For example, this morning when I logged in, my Multiple Desktop Selector was gone. I had to re-add it to the bottom panel. Yesterday when i logged in, my top panel had its applets re-arranged, instead of A B C, they were in the order B C A with an extra space at the end.
Any ideas what is going on here? Or anyone experiencing the same thing? Or is this just the Gnome applet location uncertaintly principle?
I continually get times where an applet on the top panel breaks, such as the Indicator Session Applet, where it doesn't show the applet, and is mimicking the clocks display, but frozen, and no functionality. This is seen in the photo, where you can clearly see the right time and applet as 5:11 and the frozen one as 4:49.
Regarding the gnome-panel in Ubuntu (64 bit).... I discovered some time ago that I wasn't the only one who routinely (every login) had their gnome-panel appear butchered, for which Alt-F2 then 'killall gnome-panel' would easily fix.
Having become impatient with this over the past 8 months, I decided I would automate the process and so cofiguring the startup applications seemed like a perfectly logical choice to me. Turns out I was wrong. After adding 'killall gnome-panel' to the startup applications not only does the panel fail to load altogether now, but Alt-F2 doesn't even work.
I tried Ctl-Alt-F1 and working with the graphics-free mode thinking I could somehow navigate to the startup apps config file and edit it, but I don't know where it is or how to edit it without logging in as root and I certainly don't know of any 'root password'.
Just bought a new netbook and wiped windows off of it in favor of unr 10.04, but I *really* hate this startup theme. In an effort to return it to the standard desktop mode, I've removed it from startup, but I'm trying to get rid of the "go home" applet on the left of the top panel, and the option to "remove from top panel" is greyed out. how I can do this to add my own main menu button?
I am running xubuntu 10.04 and I would like to add some space so that some of my icons appear on the right hand side and some on the left. I would also like to center the clock in the middle of the panel. How can I do this?
A warning for those who adding a new panel at desktop.10.10 just crash when adding new panel at the bottom after restart.I dont know why but it just wouldn't boot into the desktop , only able to see the wallpaper.backup the current panel before proceed a restart.
Eg. use "gconftool --dump /apps/panel > backup.xml" to save your settings and to restore using "gconftool --load backup.xml".
I'm currently using Unity 0.2.46 on Ubuntu 10.10. Installed from a ppa. The only way I have found to add an application launcher to the panel is to actually launch the app, then right click it's icon on the panel and click "Keep in Launcher". This is great but I've noticed at least one of my applications (Mumble) doesn't give me that option. Is there an alternative method? (see screenshot for example)
I'm running an up-to-date Lucid Lynx but now getting irritated by a bug or problem (I'm not sure whether it's a bug) in Gnome-panels. The problem is whenever I add a new panel in Gnome Desktop, the new panel doesn't appears on screen and needs to be re-logon to appear. It seems a known issue when I checked for the same at Launchpad, but it existed in betas.
I found this trouble since I have made a clean install of Lucid but thought it'll be fixed in any of the updates, but it didn't solved even after the most recent update I made this morning. I wanted to report this bug but didn't knew how to file bug for gnome-panels as there's no option like 'Report a problem' for gnome panels.
I like Unity, and I appreciate Canonical's work in making the desktop cleaner-looking and more intuitive.I think that being able to customize the top/application(?) panel would be very powerful. By this, I mean both adding and removing indicators.I guess the developers are aware of this, and it's easier said than done. I don't know.Personally, I miss the weather and CPU temperature applets of the old Gnome layout.I tried to apply the best guide I've found to modifying the top panel, to no avail.
After I followed the instructions for the addition of three different indicators (weather, cpu frequency and CPU and RAM % usage), my top panel remained the same.I don't know whether the indicators should show up right away or only upon restart. I did restart, though.For both the weather and CPU frequency indicators, the terminal said:Failed to fetch gzip:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/fr.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_main_sour ce_Sources Hash Sum mismatchI don't know how to get around this
I've done a quick google search and didn't really find anything that I understood. I DID find a reference to the bug on launchpad, but supposedly it was fixed as of version 2.1 and I'm running the latest version I could find which I believe is 2.9 so I'm a bit lost.
Any help would be great, if you need more info, just tell me how to get it and i shall do so as I really am missing gnomenu. If it makes any difference, I'm on ubuntu 11.04 64bit running in classic mode
I have a desktop computer running Linux Mint 9 with the Gnome desktop (not sure what version -- though by default Mint 9 comes with Gnome 2.30). Last night I tried adding a panel to the desktop by right-clicking on the existing bottom panel and selecting "New Panel". Please note that I've already got another panel at the top of the desktop on the left side on autohide and no expand.
When I added another panel, it placed a normal panel on the right side of the screen without any problems. When I right-clicked on the new right-side panel and selected "Properties", I changed the orientation to "top" (where there was already a panel, if you remember). After that moment, it seemed like the entire desktop environment crashed. Everything was completely unresponsive -- the only thing moving on the screen was the mouse. I couldn't do anything with the gui, not even shut the computer down.
Since the gui shutdown wasn't working, I switched to a different tty screen, logged in, and ran a shutdown command with the option to reboot. The computer shut down fine, and when it woke back up, the same problem was still there: Nothing loaded on the screen except for the background image and the mouse, which was still able to move but nothing else. I have the computer set up to automatically log me in, so I know it's not crashing before the user prefs are being loaded...
After restarting it again and getting the same result, I switched to a different tty screen, logged in, and tried messing around with stuff to no avail. I did notice, however, that the computer was becoming evermore sluggish, and something printed on the screen stating that a program had been terminated because of "not enough memory". It seemed like some process was consuming WAY too much RAM by itself or a program was accidentally forkbombing the computer. ...All because I added a panel...?
I'm a KDE3 user who just upgraded to 11.3/KDE4 and is still trying to learn the new way of doing things, so please bear with me if I've overlooked something obvious. I've managed to mostly get my desktop the way I want it, except for one problem: I want to add a submenu to the panel, with an appropriate icon.
According to Bug 189583 - Ability to add submenu "like editors" to kicker panel from classic menu this capability was added over a year ago, so I should be able to just right-click on any submenu and the option to add the submenu to the panel or desktop should pop up. Except for me, it doesn't. Right-clicking on a submenu just selects the first item in the submenu instead of bringing up the context menu. I've tried both the classic and kickoff menus, and the same thing happens.
The bug report does mention it is also possible to add a submenu to the panel from Dolphin by going to applications:/ and dragging the folder to the panel. This does add the submenu, but the icon displayed on the panel is the question mark icon, and there seems to be no way to change it. Besides being ugly, I need different icons to tell different submenus apart.
the best way I can describe what happened to my desktop is that at a sudden point I could no longer switch between my windows, and when I shut my computer down and rebooted, nearly all of the applets at the top of my screen -- including the clock, Me applet, messaging center, and shut down helper -- were gone. How do I get them back?
I am using Ubuntu 8.10. All the java programs run perfectly fine in Geany. But when I try to run java applets in web browsers it did not run. I have tried running it in Opera and FireFox. I have written a simple program which display "hello world" in browsers. When I refresh the page it displays the text for about 2 or 3 seconds and after that it disappears.
I'm having an unexpected problem with my Gnome Panel in Ubuntu Lucid. The thing is that after I logged in, my Language Indicator Applet and the Network Connections Indicator Applet were missing in my PANEL.I've tried the typical installation method by pressing "Add to panel", but I cannot find any of these options in the list of applets.
I am a big fan of avant window navigator, but I'm having trouble getting it set up all the way in natty.avant-window-navigator is in the natty repos, but there are a couple of shortcomings in the applets. - the digital clock applet is not included - the weather applet has an annoying bug (constantly announcing that there may be connectivity issues) that was fixed a long time ago. That's fine, I'll just I just install from the PPA I thought. The problem is that the applets package (awn-extras) is not in their natty repo. Does anyone know how to get awn with the most recent applets in natty?
