Ubuntu :: Applets Mysteriously Vanish From Panels

Dec 12, 2010

A friend of mine is running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

Applets (indicator applet, main menu, etc.) on his top GNOME panel frequently fail to appear when he logs in, and have to be added manually.

What we've tried:

1) Right-click each applet and check "Lock to Panel".

2) In gconf-editor, set "/apps/panel/global/locked_down" to true.

Neither makes the applets stay put.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS as well, and have no such problem.

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 Multimedia :: Flash Videos Vanish Part Way Through?

Feb 2, 2010

over the last few weeks (i forget exactly when it started) viewing flash videos with konqueror on videos and on the bbc news site has become a bit of a lottery. generally the video starts ok but after a minute or so the video sometimes just disappears -- not even a black box, just white screen and no adobe flash menu on a right-click. the problem happens maybe 50% of the time with videos over a minute or so.

i have seen this on two different boxes both with karmic with the backports enabled. the problem certainly occurs with both kde 4.3.4 & 4.3.5, and i think it was also seen with 4.3.2. does anyone else see this problem? if so is there a fix? i think the following are the most relevant package versions:

ii flashplugin-installer adobe flash player plugin installer
ii konqueror 4:4.3.5-0ubuntu1~karmic1 kde 4's advanced file manager, web browser and document viewer

OpenSUSE Install :: All Filesystems Vanish (look Empty) After A While

Jan 17, 2010

I have a mysterious filesystem issue with openSUSE on an old machine. Installation wasn't very pleasant but worked finally. It boots fine. However after 5 or 10 minutes, all filesystems vanish. Most programs (but not all) cannot be found anymore. "ls" output is empty everywhere. "top" used to work (it was working on a ssh connection that I just lost). Now it complains about unset TERM variable. I was able to set it again to xterm. Now "top" is working, displays the running processes : mysqld, Xorg, icewm (my WM), nothing strange there, nobody is eating up the resources. I have other linux installed on that machine : Ubuntu freezes occasionally, mostly with Gnome, but it seems to be a totally different problem (maybe related to the radeon driver) ; Mandriva works fine so far. The two IBM 120 GB harddrives are quite old but the manufacturer fitness test didn't find failures. I also checked for bad sectors before formating in openSUSE setup. It doesn't look like a physical I/O problem. In such a case, it would crash or at least complain about not being able to access the HD. Well ... I switched to console but I didn't get any login prompt and now I cannot switch back to X. I can still ping the machine but of course not ssh to it. SysReq keys (although enabled) doesn't work. I guess I will have to reboot brutally. Last time it took me about one houre of pressing 'y' tp repair the filesystem with Ubuntu. I'm sure I will be back soon. What do you guys think about that situation ? I suspect a kernel issue with that hardware. Have you heard about similar problems ? I'm afraid I will have to reinstall 11.1, which used to work fine, on that machine.

Some details about the hardware : The (onboard) Promise controller and the SATA controller are not used. The 2 HD are on the first IDE interface as master and slave.

OpenSUSE :: Firefox Drop-down Menus Vanish When Scrolling Onto Them?

Aug 7, 2011

This is a problem I had in Ubuntu some years ago that just seemed to go away; sporadically I will want to select a website by positioning the cursor over the drop-down arrow to the right side of the url box- after the list is displayed it will vanish immediately when I attempt to position the cursor over it to make a selection. Minimizing then maximizing Firefox resolves it.

A minor problem yes - but it would be nice to not have to deal with it.

General :: My Synaptic Download - Installs Vanish - Lucid

Jan 26, 2011

I have downloaded and installed programs and cannot find them. today it was k3b and k9copy. i even reinstalled them just in case. synaptic completes the process, but i can't find the programs on any menu. my command-line skills (though improving) are lacking. i've used ubuntu numerous times before and the programs of that type would always show on the 'sound & video' menu automatically. i'm considering the possibility that my installation is faulty.

Software :: Flash Videos Vanish In Firefox 3.6.15 When Not Being Viewed / Why Is So - Fix It?

Mar 14, 2011

I've been having this problem when viewing online videos/tv, primarily channel4.com/4od and similar sites.

The videos load up and play with no problems, but if the view is shifted away from the video (e.g. scrolling down the page so the video is no longer visible or switching to another tab or window), after a little while (up to a few minutes) the audio from the video stops and, upon returning to the video window, the video has been replaced with a light grey rectangle. The problem seems to be different from others described here since the videos themselves are running with no problem until the view shifts away from them. Flash-based chat applications have the same problem.

I'm running Firefox 3.6.15 in Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick). All systems updated repeatedly, as far as I know the problem has existed forever. The issue doesn't seem to exist in Chromium, interestingly (but I prefer Firefox...)

Any suggestions on diagnostics to try to find the cause and solution?

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Battery Life Mysteriously Worse

Mar 3, 2011

I've used an older version of ubuntu before, when it was brown and orange. I ran it off of a 8 gb solid state express card. Used it for about a month, didn't like it because I didn't know how to install anything and because it was slow (because ran off of a express card). Now, I'm looking to try ubuntu 10.10 on a partition of a main hard drive, specifically on the chrome os laptop when it comes out.

Now, I've read up that the battery life for ubuntu is mysteriously worse than on what would run a mac or a windows. This battery life issue is driving me away from ubuntu. How much battery life would I actually get for ubuntu if my battery life lasts 4 hours running a windows 7? And how much hard drive space do I need to partition to install ubuntu?

Ubuntu :: Space On Root Partition Mysteriously Disappearing

Oct 19, 2010

I'm not sure if I can even explain this properly! I'm attaching a hopefully self-explanatory screenshot of

(1) system monitor saying that 23.3 out of 24.6 GB of my root is used (!!!)
(2) diskanalyzer showing root should be 5.9+4+3.3+some small stuff = about 15 GB.

At startup I get a warning saying something along the lines of "you only have 50MB available on root file system.. you should delete unnecessary files.. " and that opens Disk Usage Analyzer.

Possible suspect - I had been trying out VirtualBox. On root. My virtual machine did have an 8gig hard drive, expandable I believe. But it never got past 1.7, and I've removed it, uninstalled VB and removed it from trash. (Is this weird: my trash is at /home/me/.local/share/Trash/files - took me a hell of a while to find it!)

With 100MB available on root I can barely do anything! My whole compiz/config setup even disappeared after a reboot!

Debian :: Apps Shut Down Mysteriously ?

Apr 23, 2009

Running Lenny in my plain vanilla x86 box since Lenny went final. No video card. System is completely up to date with the 26-2 kernel. All apps are Deb stable from repos.

chkrootkit, rkhunter, and clamav have all been run within the last 24 hours (clean). Firestarter is the firewall.

I left the box with about 10 apps running over all 4 virtual desktops (KDE). Came back in a couple of hours to find all apps closed except Gkrellm. Boinc, which had been dormant for lack of work, had gotten some jobs and was running in background. All apps reopened normally except Iceweasel did show the "closed unexpectedly" notification. I don't use a screensaver.

System did not shutdown and auto reboot. Uptime clock and syslog had chugged along right through it. Syslog seemed normal except for the exerpts below that looked curious to me.

Fedora :: F14 On Laptop Mysteriously Stopped Booting?

Feb 1, 2011

Fedora 14 on my laptop has randomly decided that it hates me. The system stops booting after "starting atd", right when its starting X. It "hangs" after the fedora logo, though it will reboot when I try "ctrl-alt-delete". I can see that haldaemon is failing to start, and when I boot the kernel with "selinux=0" it gives me an error message:

error while loading shared libraries: libdbus-glib-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory. NetworkManager fails with same message. the .so file is in its proper directory, where it has been all along. I've tried booting into runlevels 2 and 3. No luck there either. It'll boot to the login prompt, but as soon as I under my userid the screen flashes. I managed to get the error message it was giving me before the flash: inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-open.c: 503: _dl_open: Assertion `_dl_debug_initialize (0, args.nsid)->r_state == RT_CONSISTENT` failed!

I can boot into single user mode just fine. I've checked dmesg and Xorg logs, but I honestly don't know what I'm looking for (and I imagine that those logs would be useless if I boot into runlevel 1, since the error is at higher runlevels. But I can't get the logs for those because the computer just hangs. SSH and networking are never enabled before the hang.)

I'm at a loss here. I use the machine for both school and work [and I have quite a bit of both to do today] and I've been trying to get it to boot normally for hours now. Anyone have any ideas that I could try?

Slackware :: Flash Mysteriously Stopped Working

Feb 16, 2010

With Firefox 3.6 from the official repository, and the flash-player-plugin from Slacky.eu installed here. It's worked fine up until now, where websites either claim it's not installed, or show a blank box instead.NoScript is installed on my Firefox, but given that on fully trusted pages (of which there are very few) it still happens, and nothing else blocks Flash besides AdBlock and Firefox's own settings (both checked too) I suspect the plugin.I also tried downloading direct from Adobe, and plonking the libflashplayer.so in /usr/lib / mozilla/plugins and making a backup of the original one (The one provided from Slacky's package) but to no avail.So it seems to be the plugin, but for inexplicable reasons.Would anyone happen to be able to explicate this inexplicability?

Fedora :: Sound Driver Removed Mysteriously - Restore?

Networking :: SIP Packets Mysteriously Disappearing / When Iptables-nat Activated

Sep 10, 2010

I have a very weird case in my firewall.I have an asterisk server and some phones and between them there is a linux firewall based on iptables.With basic rules on iptables everything works ok, but when I put a single nat rule (no matter what rule I use) some packets from some phones misteriously disappear from interfase to interfase.

Clearer:The firewall has two interfases: eth0 (pointing to phones) and eth2 (pointing to asterisk).One problematic phone is, so I use tcpdump this way.

Ubuntu :: Where Did Applets Go?

Jul 2, 2011

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?

Ubuntu :: Add Applets In Netbook DE?

Oct 20, 2010

Is it possible to add panel applets in the netbook desktop environment? (I don't know what this DE is called.)

I know how to do it if I log in with the usual Gnome DE, but applets added there don't seem to show up when I log in with the netbook DE.

Is there a configuration file somewhere that can be manually edited to do this?

Ubuntu :: Applets Not Working In Firefox 3?

Mar 3, 2010

I am running Jaunty 9.04 with Firefox 3.0.18.

Here is the output of $ java -version:

java version "1.6.0_16"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_16-b01)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.2-b01, mixed mode)

I have tried the solution to this thread: [URL] but to no avail. And this thread: [URL]doesn't help either.

The website I am trying to view the applet on is: [URL]

Nothing comes up saying a missing plug-in needs to be installed, but a small, blank window appears with a title of "Java" which can't be closed and has to be killed.

Ubuntu :: Java Applets Won't Run In Browsers

Mar 6, 2010

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.

Are there any other ways to run java applets?

Ubuntu :: Adding Applets To GDM Panel?

Feb 23, 2011

so I'm using Xubuntu 10.04.2, and I would like to add the network manager to the GDM Panel.

I know it must be possible somehow, since the Gnome version lacks the battery monitor, and the Xfce version has it present. I'm just not quite sure how to get it done.

I do not have Gnome installed, I have only XFCE, LXDE, and Openbox.

Ubuntu :: Get Awn With The Most Recent Applets In Natty?

May 2, 2011

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?

Ubuntu :: Unity Popout Applets?

May 9, 2011

I am trying *really* hard to like Unity. Already I'm disappointed that I can't move it to the right edge of the screen. My peripheral vision is stronger on the left, so the Launcher is distracting there. I know that people will say that it'll pop out when I try to use scroll bars. I have auto-hide disabled, so no it won't. Now I'm trying to figure out how (or if) I can get some sort of pop-out functionality. Since Canonical wants to shove a more OSX-ish experience down my throat, I'd like to be able put a folder into the Launcher, and have it pop-out the contents of the folder, with an option to open that folder in Nautilus. Can this be done?
