Ubuntu :: Can't Maximize Or Minimize When Click On An Icon?
Mar 5, 2010
When I click the Firefox icon, normally I can maximize and minimize in the window (either top or bottom panel). This has disappeared and I am not sure why. I had installed [URL... and suddenly after deleting/cleaning it up/restoring panels I cannot see why or how I can easily maximize or minimize any panel, not just Firefox.
I installed opera 10.6 today. first thing I did was remove the title bar(using the window decorations item in compiz) and now im wondering if there is a way to add buttons to opera that maximize, minimize, and close a window?
all the windows i am trying to open don't show the close, min, max buttons. also, rhythm box and grooveshark (inside of chrome) won't play audio, i click play and the progress bar in the playing stays at zero. however audio in runescape works so its not the audio card...
Hey, bars and in the Places menu if I click anything from Home Folder to Downloads I'll get an error like: "Could not open location 'file:///home/michael/Downloads' No application is registered as handling this file"
Some how I managed to get rid of this buttons. I tryed to write ?sudo aptitude purge ubuntu-desktop && sudo aptitude clean && sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install ubuntu-desktop && sudo /etc/init.d/gdm? in terminal, and then restarted my laptop. There is still no effect I wrote ?metacity? in terminal and I got this message ?Window manager warning: Screen 0 on display ":0.0" already has a window manager; try using the --replace option to replace the current window manager. So how should I fix this problem.
After I completed the upgrade to Lucid, my maximize, minimize, and close buttons disappeared. I looked around on the forums and i didn't see any other posts about this problem. I'm sorry if i might have over looked one though. Anyways, the buttons are not on the left or the right, they just don't show up. I tried messing with the theme settings and I also tried some of the things that were recommended on the main sticky about bugs with Lucid, and i still don't have them. Dose anyone know how to fix this or will it fix itself with updates?
I have ubuntu 10.04 and installed a theme that I really love. However, this theme puts the buttons in the top-right corner of the window (close, minimize, maximize) is there any way to move them back to the left?
I was using Compiz, and was going to check out the 3DBox add on. I clicked it, enabled it, and then my windows vanished. I rebooted. Then, when I came back, all my windows open now in the top left of the screen, and the close, minimize and maximize icons are gone. I cannot even see the top bar of a window to move it.
How do I get the close minimize maximize buttons back on the right? I looked in appearance, and all of the little previews of the themes have them on the right, but they are on the left when I apply them. Is there any way to change them back? this is very frustrating.
Yesterday I allowed all updates to be installed. My system was upgraded from Karmic to Lucid.I have the following post upgrade installation.Fire Fox does not show a maximize,minimize or exit buttons.I searched online and tried the follow:
My gf recently upgraded her Dell laptop from Karmic to Lucid but has since experienced some issues with the windowing system. Is called Metacity? - I'd call it the "chrome" of the windows, eg. the title bar, maximise & close buttons etc.The description of the problem she's given me is as follows: "Every time I turn my laptop on it comes up with a small window and when I access the internet, it wont let me maximise/minimise the window.
I have to go to System/Appearances/Visual Effects and reset it to Normal. This then resolves the problem. But the next time I open my laptop, the settings have been forgotten and I have to go through the same process again." It's taken me ages to steer her away from windows but she's had a few problems since upgrading and she's thinking about heading back to the "dark side"...
I dont want the buttons at the right side, as in windows, I liked them at the left, but when I choose GTK in compiz fusion, they go to the right side as in windows, they only work at the left side using emerald, but no with GTK, someone can help me to keep the buttons at the left?, I dont know why they have changed to right side.
I just upgraded to 9.10 and all the windows for all programs have the minimize/maximize/close boxes on the left side. No big deal, but for decades they've been on the right. Is this something in my computer? If so, can I do something to get them over where they belong?
Most of these threads relate to missing buttons or moving them to the right side. However, I'd like to know whether it is possible to get the buttons to show normally on the title bar instead of the panel? I think having the buttons on the panel is butt ugly and fairly inconvenient.
I am using compiz in Kubuntu and I have run across an interesting problem. Occasionally when I reboot and login kubuntu will load but there is no window manager (ie no minimize, maximize, or close) and compiz doesn't actually load (no effects work). Like I said this only happens occasionally. I can fix the problem by using the following command:compiz --replaceOnce I type this command compiz loads and the window manager finishes loading as well. Other times when I reboot Kubuntu will load just find as well as compiz automatically with no problems. The problem is really intermittent. Any ideas on how to fix the problem?I installed the program through the adept-manager and I enabled it through the kubuntu menu->system->desktop effectsI didn't modify any file to make it load automatically it just did it by itself. I also do not have any nvidia card installed and once compiz is loaded it runs flawlessly.
