Ubuntu :: Conky Disappears After A While On 11.04

May 24, 2011

When I run Conky on Ubuntu 11.04, then after some time it suddenly disappears (isn't drawn anymore on the desktop). With 'ps' I can see that the Conky process is still running, it just isn't drawing itself anymore. I don't know what exactly triggers Conky to disappear. Does this have something to do with Unity?

Ubuntu :: Conky Disappears When Closing Other Programs?

Aug 30, 2010

I'm new to Conky, and have shamelessly copied from the many other conkyrc files posted here! I have Conky set to start up with a 15 second delay, and it does. But frequently when I close another programme (eg Firefox) Conky disappears. It's still running, and if I log out or reboot I see it for a flash, and it appears OK again when the system starts up.

System info:
Ubuntu 10.04
Kernel 2.6.32-24 generic
Gnome 2.30.2

Fedora :: Conky Application Starts Then Disappears From View

Oct 4, 2009

The application is Conky running under Fedora 12 Alpha. This application is set to start upon logging in to the desktop and it does just that. It appears for a second or two and then disappears from view. Although I don't see it, top tells me it is in fact running. As a result of this unexpected behavior I kill the process and restart the application using the ALT/F2 run application tool. When I do this Conky appears on the desktop and stays in view.

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?

Ubuntu :: Top Panel Disappears

Jul 25, 2011

My family uses Ubuntu on two separate laptops. What happened on each of those laptops with the last ~10 days was that the top panel disappeared. I don't know what lead up to the disappearance on the first one, but this is what happened on the second one:The user closed the lid while Ubuntu was running. I don't know whether Ubuntu is set to sleep or to hibernate when the lid is closed, but regardless of that doing this never caused problems before. Yesterday when the lid was closed and then opened and the user logged back in, the top panel was missing. Still missing after a reboot. Had to be rebuilt.

Both laptops on which this happened are running 11.04 using the classic interface.Perhaps related is that on the first laptop the sound volume adjustment icon disappeared. I tried to add it back in but it's not in the list of widgets or applets or whatever Gnome calls them. How do I add the volume slider back into the panel?Is this a known problem?Is there a fix or a way of preventing this from happening again?I don't use Ubuntu, but I have direct access to these machines so I can run things and get info if you need such.

Ubuntu :: External USB Drive Disappears / Get That?

Restart the computer and it appears for a while once again, then disappears.

Ubuntu :: CD/DVD Disappears From Computer Window?

Dec 23, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 and am trying to install a Samsung ML1665 printer. When I insert the CD which accompanied the printer, the CD/DVD icon disappears from the Computer window. Where'd it go? I successfully installed the drivers on it onto my laptop (Windows Vista) without much problem.

Perhaps it should go on another thread, but I also downloaded the UnifiedLinuxDriver_086.tar.gz from the Samsung website, and unzipped it. Where to look for the unzipped files? I did stumble on them, and did install the driver from the deb file which was there, but when I try to print, I'm informed that there's a missing program called 'rasterto samsungspl' which needs to be installed. The unzipped files include five different ones with that name. Which one should I use, and how can I install the right one?

Ubuntu Installation :: Menu Bar Disappears After First Reboot?

Sep 21, 2010

I have reinstalled 10.04 several times and have the same result. After the install everything works and looks great. Then after the first power down and reboot the top menu bar and bottom panel are gone.

The desktop wallpaper (bare of anything) is there, still responds to right-clicks, etc, and the system seems to function, but the menu bar is missing. The extents of the desktop are still the same, so it's not the desktop extending outside of the screen display area (mouse doesn't disappear over the edge).

I can alt-F1 to get to the menu bar menu items, and they function - appearing from the top edge of the screen, but cannot activate them via mouse. I have reinstalled several times and this consistently happens every time. I had 8.10 on this box and it didn't do this. I reinstalled 8.10 and it was fine again, and then back to this with reinstalled 10.04. The 8.10 was a virgin install and I reformatted the drive on every install so there's no legacy crap clinging on.

I can use ctrl-alt-del to shut down/restart/etc., and alt-F2 gets me the command line. All seemingly functional.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Installer Not Starting - Gui Disappears

Oct 12, 2010

I was looking in to a easy to use linux distro to surf the internet, do some text editing and emailing for my moms old laptop, cause its being very slow with windows xp on it.

specs: intel pentium 4 2.4 ghz
256mb ddr ram
40 gb ide harddrive
nvidia geforce go 4 series gpu.(if I remember correct it is a MX 440)
brand medion

I figured out Lubuntu would be al right, so I connected my usb cd/dvd reader(cause intern cd/dvd drive is broken) put in a disc that I burned with my other pc and started up the os. the live cd is working al right when its at the menu and I choose to start it it hangs for 30 sec-2 min then it starts to load and eventually the desktop shows up then I can start to do things but as soon as I open something the gui disappears before the program opens.

I tried to run the installer but I get the same issue. I see my mouse changing when I start the installer the mouse pointer doesn't points to the left side of the screen any more it points at the right side(which is strange) I tested this on my other pc and the installer loads up just fine and everything works ok(though I still have the mouse pointer issue if I start the installer)

btw if you got any ideas for a better distro these are the requirements: my mom is a linux newbie so an easy to use, lightweight distro for internet browsing, emailing and text editing(word) is needed. I think lubuntu will do? btw2: is there any way to import settings from the windows os to the linux os? btw3: dual boot should work just fine if I install this without deleting the windows partition right?

Ubuntu :: Menu Disappears / Can't Load Programs Fan At 100%

Oct 15, 2010

I've just installed Lubuntu 10.10 to an Asus A2400H laptop. It has a Celeron 2.6 Ghz CPU and 512mb RAM. In the past I have installed Ubuntu and more recently Xubuntu 9.10 and 10.04. This time round I wanted to try out Lubuntu to get more speed out of this laptop but it's giving me crazy problems.When I run the Live CD all seems to work well and quick and there are no problems I can see. Then having installed it -- no errors during install -- when it boots up the fan goes at 100%, the only items on the menu are log off and something else of no use, but neither work. I can't load any of the main programs, but I can get to terminal and the update manager works, although it works extremely slowly.

I typed the 'top' command from the terminal and it says CPU usage is only 35% and only half the memory is in use, and no swap file.I have tried a reinstall and it's exactly the same. I've done the 'check disk for errors' and given the CD lens a clean because sometimes this has caused problems in the past, but it doesn't seem to be the case here given there are no errors during install (I watched the whole install... all 50 minutes of it).I have previously istalled LXDE on this laptop side-by-side with Xubuntu and it did have some fan issues and bugs but still worked for the most part, so I would have thought just having the one system would create less conflict.

Ubuntu Servers :: RAID1 Disappears After Reboot?

I had a thread earlier asking for help installing Ubuntu Server to my homemade atom based NAS, but I gave up on that (GUI's are more helpful to me ) and so now I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop 64bit edition.Last night I was finally able to get mdadm set up. I have two 1TB disks set up in RAID1 config. I used

sudo mdadm --create /dev/md0 --level=1 --raid-devices=2 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1
to create the array, and then waited until it finished assembling. Then I used System>Administration>Disk

Ubuntu :: Title Bar Disappears When Window Is Maximized?

Apr 21, 2011

I activated the Global Menu applet (the old one that you can get from the Webupd8 PPA, not the new one that comes with Natty). I also activated the Window buttons and the Window Title applets. In effect, when I maximized my window with these applets activated, there was no title bar and no menu. I couldn't really get it to look very aesthetically pleasing, though, so I ended up removing all of them.However, now when I maximize my windows, the title bar is still gone. I've looked through gconf-editor and think I may have found the culprit, but I can't figure out how to get rid of it.

There's a leftover key from the Global Menu applet for show icon. When I was fooling around with the applets before, I set that value to "true" as default. I've tried unsetting the key. I've tried uninstalling Global Menu and cleaning the configuration files. I've logged out and rebooted. The key is still there.Assuming this is the issue (and I'm not sure that it is), what should I do here?
