Ubuntu :: Conky Crashes With Desktop?

Jan 8, 2010

I have conky on my desktop, and it works most of the time. The only times I've noticed problems are when I do large file transfers from my computer to an external HD.

What happens during large file transfers is that Conky crashes, and then I realize that my desktop is also "dead" (as in, I can't highlight anything. The icon for my external HD is gone, even though it is still mounted and accessible. Right-clicking doesn't do anything either.). I tried Ctrl+Alt+Backspace, but that didn't work either. I can log out and back in to get everything working again, but that's a bit of a pain.

I'm using the GNOME desktop on Ubuntu 9.10.

Ubuntu :: Conky Alignment - Desktop Icons Disappearing ?

Aug 21, 2010

I'm trying to work out with Conky on my Ubuntu 10.04 x64.

Conky is set to Top Left alignment, but it doesn't seem to be ending up there at all. After changing all of the different alignments, it doesn't seem to move around much at all.

(Desktop Screenshot Attached)

My other issue, which may have something to do with the way my Conky is set up, is that I have a couple of icons on the desktop, but they only show up when I put my mouse over them, and in the next couple of seconds they go away. It seems to be related to the refresh frequency of conky, which seems to be all of my issues right now.

Another note, this conky code is essentially pulled directly from the conky website.

Fedora :: Conky Xfce Desktop Icons

Jun 3, 2011

conky draws the root background for sudo transparency, not the desktop image, so solve by using real transparency, but this means any desktop icon blinks or just vanishes, what to do,looked around for a while. but no further along, anyone else had this problem, anyone else solved this problem?

Slackware :: Fixed Conky / KDE4 Transparency - Doesn't Disappear When Click Desktop

Jun 19, 2010

This works on my Slackware64 13.1 using KDE 4.4.4, Conky version 1.8.0. This is a simple .conkyrc tweak that doesn't need feh, it doesn't have the distracting faun shadow-border and most importantly, it doesn't disappear when you click your desktop (On my system anyway). These are the relevant sections to edit:

own_window_colour black
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_type override
own_window yes

I found that getting rid of the own_window_argb_values yes suggested in other fixes and replacing it with a specific alpha and then changing window type to override solved all my issues. I've noticed no bugs or strange happenings. This seems to be a common problem with a lot of workaround solutions. I think this is a much more elegant way. Edit: Not persistant... After 2 reboots it's back to normal.

Debian :: Conky - Full Screen Config / 2 Conky Configs?

Jun 13, 2011

Said that all the config i find put all the info in one place of the screen, in this example on the right side:


or like conky colors where you can put in either side, or other complex examples that use folders with images..that at least i need one day to study all the variables it has...

What i want is something simple, in my black background i dont want images and effects, only white simple text.

My problem is: i want for instance my specs above, my log info in the middle, my music info bellow (above my clock) and in conky config i'm hitting my head in the wall....

For instance if i use my facebook script to appear in the midle how the hell can i put my music info bellow without ruined the facebook in the midle...do i need 2 conky configs?

Debian Multimedia :: Desktop Crashes After Upgrade

Sep 30, 2015

I'm running Wheezy and just did an apt-get upgrade which installed linux-3.2.0-4-amd64, a bunch of php5 stuff and some qemu stuff. Now when I log into the desktop it starts loading and before it finishes I wind up with a screen full of text. The first line is usually "BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at <some address that varies>" but sometimes the first line is off the screen. None of KDE, Gnome or xfce work. Recovery mode to a shell prompt works fine. I did a net install of Wheezy on another disk and that runs just fine. I'd like to get my original disk working.

OpenSUSE :: 11.3 Crashes Very Often When Change Desktop Background?

Aug 14, 2010

It has been about a month since I installed openSUSE 11.3 (64bit, Gnome), and overall it is better than 11.2, but I have had some stability issues that I did not have with 11.2.

1. openSUSE 11.3 crashes very often when I change desktop background. I haven't experiment with it but it happens with downloaded images.

2. Changing monitor environment makes openSUSE to freeze. Fresh boot with external monitors connected usually works, but plugging & unplugging monitors usually makes openSUSE freezing. (I have to force power down)

3. Suspend makes openSUSE freeze a lot. Usually one suspension works, if I re-suspend it, it usually freezes.

I was wondering if these are common with 11.3 or I'm the only one who is having this.

Qt Version: 4.7.0
Operating System: Linux i686

OpenSUSE :: Plasma-desktop Crashes On Login?

Dec 16, 2010

I had openSuse 11.3 KDE4.4.4 installed and used the 1-Click install to get the nVidia drivers. However, this gave me the problems with Amarok and other applications crashing. I switched the system repos to use packman but that didn't help.

The solution on the forums seemed to be either recompile with an old nVidia driver or upgrade to KDE4.5 as most people were reporting to not see it under 4.5.

Upgrading seemed to be the easiest method, especially as there appeared to be a stable repo now.

I upgraded and now plasma-desktop crashes on login! Is getting the old nVidia driver my only option now?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Extended Desktop - X Crashes On 11.3

Sep 2, 2010

I am trying to get an extended desktop (laptop monitor + extra) on my OpenSuse 11.3 system (64). I use kde 4.4.

It used to work on my OS 11.0. Here is the deal now:

- I use NVIDIA G2 driver from the OS repositiory
- laptop screen works fine, including compositing, 3D etc

I run nvidia-xconfig to generate an xconfig file. Everything still works fine (even after x reboot):


Next I login as root and open the run nvidia-setting program. There the second monitor is detected. I enable it as extended desktop and check: enable Xinerama.

I reboot.

- compositing is off, I cannot enable it
- if I move my mouse cursor to the second screen, it only stays there for a second and vibrates enormously.
- if I use a window on the 2nd screen. X crashes

Things I can add/remove from the xorg.conf?

Now the xorg.conf is as follows:

Ubuntu Installation :: Desktop Session Crashes To Login Screen Soon After Logging In?

Oct 10, 2010

After upgrading my netbook (Eee 1005HA) from Ubuntu Lucid to Maverick, I can log in okay, but it crashes back to the login screen a couple of minutes after logging in, after the desktop has loaded. I haven't been able to find anything in syslog/dmesg/etc. about why this is happening, but it isn't happening on my other laptop which I just upgraded to Maverick as well.

Edit: memtest86+ showed no errors and the live USB desktop works fine.

OpenSUSE :: BOOM And My Plasma Desktop Crashes And After Refreshing It

Apr 16, 2011

I'm running OpenSUSE 11.4 (i586) with KDE Desktop 4.6.0 "release 6" on my IBM ThinPad X40. And I have trouble with getting new plasma widgets by internet. To be more concrete, every time I try to install new widget (first I want to view details of that), so when I'm pushing on blue button called "Details", BOOM and my plasma desktop crashes and after refreshing it generates the dump file for reporting to developers.

As this is quite an annoying bug, I've decided to report it, so I've installed all the necessary debugging tools, generated the complete bug report and sent it to KDE team. After this, I've got mail with link on KDE bug tracking system [URL] and found a lot of people being in the same trouble. So, one guy - Dario Andres (I think he's from KDE team) says: "The bug and the fix are in "libattica", may be your version of that library is not the latest. (or there wasn't a release including the fix)" and though after his comment there's a dozen of other replies with the same problem, all of them are marked as the duplicated bug and has no answer.

Well, even I know that my operating system is always up to dated, anyway I've checked that library version on my computer:

giorgi@linux-oary:~> rpm -qa|grep libattica

And I've double checked on the Internet and this is the latest version of this library. So, it's obvious that this BUG 261530 has not solved by this library.

OpenSUSE Install :: Seemingly Random Crashes On A New Desktop Running 11.3

Sep 9, 2010

I got a new desktop and figured this would be a great oppurtunity to update to 11.3 (from 11.2) while migrating files.. However I have had lots of problems with it, right of the bat. My first installation got messed up right after it was done, so I had to redo everything. Now the system boots up all fine but I am experiencing crashes every once in a while. By crashes I mean nothing works; the system monitor graphs freeze, the clock freezes, system doesnt respond to key strokes. The only remedy is then to "force an unexpected reboot" (ref: IT Crowd). I have a feeling that it has to do with Yast or something related to Yast, as it is the only common denominator between the crashes so far. However the system doesnt crash everytime I start Yast so I cant really say anything conclusively..

I have also realised that when I attach a secondary screen the graphics get kinda screwed as well.. if that makes any sense... Here are my system details: Dell Vostro Desktop with Core i7 64bit processor

8 x 2.8Ghz
6gig ram
graphics card: GeForce GT220

What could be the problem here? btw let me know if anyone wants to see logs from /var/log/messages
