Ubuntu :: Black Background After Changing Vnc Settings

Oct 12, 2010

I was configuring the vnc server or remote desktop using the "gconf-editor" -- "desktop - gnome - remote_access" pane, and first I clicked on "disable background" to see if it was usefull or not to disable it (in terms of speed). It worked fine but sometimes when closing the connection, the background refuses to reenable, mantaining the black background...

That's ok, I decided to disable the feature and share via vnc the background as it is a wired net and I do not really need this feature.

My surprise is that now, whith the feature DISABLE (box unchecked), I cannot set a background, it is always black and I find no way to go back in this...

is this common, or something that can be "easily" fixed?

Ubuntu :: Replacing Or Changing The White Logo On A Black Background After The GRUB

Mar 14, 2010

I do need to change or edit this white Ubuntu logo on the black background that comes right after GRUB and before my xsplash is played. How do I do that? Where is that picture saved in the system?

I have edited my xsplash the way I want it by changing the pictures in /usr/share/image/xsplash but cant find a way to edit this other bootup screen.

Ubuntu :: Ambiance Theme Graphical Glitch - Broadcast Box In The "Me Menu" Is Black Text On A Near Black Background

Oct 21, 2010

When Ambiance is selected as the theme, the broadcast box in the "Me Menu" is black text on a near black background. Changing the "Input Boxes" color changed the color of that boxes background on every theme except Ambiance. The problem seems to be with having "Controls" set to Ambiance, because having any other theme customized with Ambiance controls selected causes this bug again.

I really don't want to use any of the other themes because I find them horrid in comparison. how to fix this bug, or if someone would be kind enough to post a proper bug report for this? Can anyone else recreate this error on theirs?

Ubuntu :: Stop Users From Changing Their Background?

May 10, 2010

How do I stop users from changing their background? I'm installing ubuntu on some (non-networked) computers at my school, and I don't want the students to change the background on the desktop. I don't care if they change it during their session, but it must revert to the default when the session is logged-out or shutdown.

Ubuntu :: Changing Background Crashes GNOME

Jul 9, 2010

Been trying to get mac4lin to work, and in the process, I attempted uninstalling, rebooting, then reinstalling gtk-engines-pixbuf. This has now screwed my system so that the background is a light grey and any attempt to change the wallpaper just makes X crash, forcing me to Ctrl Alt Backspace. I'd rather avoid a reinstall of the system since I have it customized to my needs, so is there a solution to this? I tried reinstalling the pixbufs package, but no dice.

Ubuntu :: Changing The Color Of The Panel Menu Background?

Jun 25, 2011

I know how to change the colors of the panels. But on the parts were the ubuntu symbol, the menus (Applications, Places, and Systems), the date and time, and the indicator applets is, they do not change at all. And pretty much the same problem on the bottom panel.

I tried Gnome color changer but only works for the texts and the drop down menus. I use Gnome classic (hated Unity). My goal is to make ALL of the panel background black.

Ubuntu :: Folders Show A Black Background And No Files?

A rookie Ubuntu user, I foolishly downloaded iTunes and ever since that install (which has since been undone), my folder system shows a black background. The only way to see the files is to click and drag my mouse over the files in the system. Is there a way to fix this? I've attached a screenshot for clarity.

Ubuntu :: Login Background / Gdm Theme Has Turned Black

Jun 27, 2011

I just installed xubuntu natty, and the gdm theme (xubuntu-gdm-theme) has somehow reverted to something ugly. The background is black instead of showing xubuntu-greybird.png, the panel bar is light gray, and the shutdown button is now gray instead of a red/orange power icon.

The problem appeared while I was tweaking my account settings, possibly when I used the users-admin tool, but I'm not sure.

I tried purging and reinstalling the following packages:


...but that didn't help.

For comparison, I'm attaching screen shots of my (broken) gdm screen and a correct one from a virtual machine. (Try to ignore the fact that they're different screen resolutions.)

OpenSUSE :: Getting Black Background With KDE4?

Aug 31, 2010

I've been running KDE4 with Suse 11.2 for about a year or so now, with no problems. Yesterday, the background to my screen suddenly went black. Open windows were unaffected, but I could see my theme, the task manager, etc. I couldn't open any programs other than the ones already open (and ones that they launch).This problem was system-wide, in that it affects all accounts on my machine.I thought I'd solved the problem after discussion with someone by email, by forcing KDE to recreate itself. I did this by

mv ~/.kde4 ~/oldkde4

then relogging. This, in itself, seemed to make matters worse, so I went

mv ~/.kde4 ~/newkde4
mv ~/oldkde4 ~/.kde4

and relogged. To my surprise, everything worked thereafter for a few hours.

I think this was coincidence, because, after a few hours, the same thing happened and the "fix" didn't work anymore.I checked .xsession-error and it says

/etc/X11/xim: Checking whether an input method should be started.
sourcing /etc/sysconfig/language to get the value of INPUT_METHOD
INPUT_METHOD is not set or empty (no user selected input method).

Debian :: Methods For Changing The GRUB-PC Background Image?

Mar 26, 2011

After much searching and trying of more complicated methods for changing the GRUB-PC background image, i found method that seems to work. The simplest one! I installed grub2-splashimages, which created a new folder in /usr/share/images, called grub. From there it appears to be as simple as adding the image of your choice, then adding "GRUB_BACKGROUND=/usr/share/images/grub/your_image" to "/etc/default/grub" file, the running "update-grub", of course.

Only problem is it doesnt work for the image i really want. So my question: What qualities should an image have if it is to be successfully used as a GRUB-PC (GRUB 2?) background? I have read that you do not need to resize the image anymore, indeed i tried resizing it to match the size a default image form the "/usr/share/images/grub" folder , and saving it with the extension .tga in Gimp and it did not work. The image i want to use is quite large, it is also black and white/grey-scale and in the .png format.

Ubuntu :: Eclipse - Code Completion Black Background Unreadable?

Sep 10, 2010

Whenever I use code completion in Eclipse for a function, the function's PHP help/docs cannot be seen because it has a black background. How can I change this? I'm using Ubuntu 10 64 bit, default theme. Default eclipse theme. I've tried changing all the black colors in the Eclipse preferences under both Appearance and the other colors area to no success.

This is very annoying, as I cannot view help for any PHP functions without using my web browser.

Ubuntu :: Gnome-terminal 'Use Background Settings From System Theme'

Jan 17, 2011

I'd like to change the default transparency level for the gnome-terminal.The gnome-terminal has this setting in: Edit --> Profile preferences --> Background tab, called "Use background settings from system theme". Indeed, I can simply uncheck this setting and manually adjust, but then my changes would apply to all themes, if I were to change my theme in the future.How can I edit the transparency of the GTK theme itself so that it applies to gnome-terminal?I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 with the "Ambiance" theme, and I'm seeing these files which are probably relevant. Am I on the right track? (those files don't contain anything obvious like "transparency" or "opacity" to change ... so I"m not exactly sure what/where to change)
