Ubuntu :: DockbarX No Longer Shows Open Apps Or Launchers

Jun 17, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 fresh install on eee 900. I had previously tried Cairo-Dock and AWN (successfully but I like that DockbarX is integrated into the panel) I installed Dockbarx like so:


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dockbar-main/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dockbarx
DockbarX was working.

Then I uninstalled Cairo and AWN with Synaptic.I got a notification of an error in the panel saying I had broken packages - see broken package filter to check it out.I can't find filters in Synaptic.Then I noticed DockbarX was empty (and I had pinned Firefox to it) So I tried uninstalling and reinstalling via terminal. No problems with that but when added it to the panel again it was still empty . I rebooted several times during these attempts.



- Launchers disappear
- Open applications not reflected in launchers
Jun 7/2010 status: New → Incomplete


But I have 0.39.3-1.

Ubuntu :: DockbarX/XFapplet Won't Pin Launchers?

Sep 1, 2011

I decided to try DockbarX in XFCE to see how it worked compared to Talika. It runs a bit smoother, and looks a lot better, the only problem is, I can't pin any open programs to my dock. If I click "pin application" and then close the window, the icon disappears as if I never pinned it. This has happened with every program I've tried. I've also tried running it as a stand-alone dock, and while I can pin programs that way, the dock itself likes to move around on its own. I am using the version from the WebUpd8 repos, which is version 0.46.

Ubuntu :: New Launchers In Unity - Nautilus Icon - Group The Launchers?

May 2, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 and this is my first experience with Unity. I have managed to create launchers in .local/share/applications and drag them to the launcher to add desired shortcuts. Here are two questions I have:

1) I am adding many shortcuts to various directories I frequently use; the shortcut's have commands like nautilus /home/user/some/dir. Despite the fact that I change their icons, when I drag them to the launcher they all use the Nautilus icon. Is there a way to fix this?

2) Is there a way to group the launchers? For example, having a group for office applications, and a group for directory launchers?

Ubuntu :: Dockbarx 0.43 Not Working - No Window Previews - No Icons For Open Applications

Feb 24, 2011

I few weeks ago DockbarX upgraded tyo 0.43, and since then it hasn't worked at all; not just no window previews, but no icons for open applications - absolutely nothing. This also applies when there's an applet in a panel, not just AWN. I've been through the forums, tried going into Compiz Settings and unchecking, then rechecking KDE Compatibility etc, but it does nothing. Edot - installed awn-applet-dockbarx and gnome-dockbarx-applet from Synaptic but it doesn't help.

OpenSUSE Install :: Ubuntu No Longer Shows In Boot Options

Mar 10, 2011

Everything went fine but whenever I rebooted, Ubuntu 10.10 was not an option in the boot list. However, Windows shows up and boots just fine. I am currently tri booting (not sure if that's the correct term) Windows 7, Ubuntu 10.10, and OpenSuse each on a hard drive of their own. In the dolphin file manager I can still see all the files for Ubuntu so I know it was not partitioned over or deleted.

Ubuntu :: Startup-Manager No Longer Shows No Of Kernels Option?

Dec 5, 2010

I've used the startup-manager on my old laptop, also running ubuntu, to control the number of kernel options shown in the grub menu, as per this how-to:-[URL]see the last screenshot on the page. I've got a new laptop and am trying to do the same, but on the advanced tab I no longer have this "Limit the number of kernels in the boot menu" option, all I have is "Bootloader menu resolution" and [Create rescue floppy]. Is this because I am now running 64 bit or has this changed in 10.10 (I probably haven't looked at that on my old laptop since before 10.04)?

Ubuntu Installation :: Multi-Booting - CD Drive - Also SATA - No Longer Shows Up

Apr 16, 2010

I decided to install the Ubuntu Netbook remix (9.10, I believe) on this extra IDE hard drive I had (my other three hard drives are SATA.) My primary hard drive contains a Windows XP, my second contains Windows 7, and my third SATA drive is just NTFS-formatted storage. I went through the installer and choose to format and install on my 40GB IDE hard drive, which it did. Then it finished and rebooted. It apparently decided to install the GRUB bootloader onto the primary hard drive (not the one it was installed on,) which was not my intention. The bootloader froze the boot of my computer and wouldn't work. (Stuck at loading GRUB.) I couldn't even get to the BIOS. So I pulled the plug on the primary hard drive and tried to boot again. I could get into Windows 7 just fine, but that was it. The problem, though, is that the CD drive (also SATA) no longer shows up in My Computer. Also, after changing the boot order and replugging in the former primary hard drive, it wouldn't show up, either. Nor would the IDE one (though I'm pretty sure that's because Windows doesn't understand the EXT (or whatever Ubuntu uses) file system.

Does anyone know why this occurred and how to get those drives to show up in Windows again? I don't really care to get the netbook remix working here, since this isn't even a laptop, it was just an experiment. Also, I'd love to know how to remove GRUB from my primary hard disk so that I can boot from it again.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub2 Configuration - Partition No Longer Shows Up In Chameleon?

Sep 24, 2010

boot up in to chameleon, lists only Mac OS X as a boot option. Reboot, load Ubuntu 10.4 install cd, get to a terminal, mount /dev/sda3 /mnt grub-install --force --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/sda3

reboot, let chameleon come up, it sees both Mac OS X & Ubuntu partitions and I can boot to either or happily, now here is the problem... If I select linux and boot in to linux from chameleon, i am brought to the grub menu, where i can select the first choice which is normal ubuntu 10.4 and every thing is great... until I reboot and my linux partition no longer shows up in chameleon, as if tthe act of booting in to grub is changing something / deleting itself from the partition? and I have to do the whole thing over again. SO, not having to even go in to OS X, I'm not sure thats really the concerns more as I'm doing something wrong with grub.

Ubuntu :: Transmission No Longer Shows Space Remaining On Chosen Drive In Add Window

Jul 25, 2010

Transmission used to show space remaining on the drive you choose in the add window. Now it doesn't. Was this removed? I LOVED that convenience of not having to go to a separate file browser or terminal to show space. I tried posting at Transmissions forums but it's been 4 days with only 7 views and no reason to bump b/c the forum is so slow I'm still on the front page.

Debian Multimedia :: Vlc No Longer Shows Image - Display Movies Again?

Apr 4, 2010

I used to have a working vlc. Then I added debian-multimedia to my sources.list and installed several other movie players (kplayer, kaffeine,). As a result, my vlc no longer works: When I run it to display a movie (any movie, I tried several) I get the sound OK, but there is no image, and the window stays small (like when playing a sound file). How do I get vlc to display movies again?

Debian Multimedia :: MPlayer No Longer Listed In Apps Menu After System Update

Aug 3, 2010

MPlayer was working just fine last night, but today I'm having problems which may be due to me performing a system update. I noticed that MPlayer was no longer listed in my Applications menu and I no longer had the option of opening videos with it. However, I now had Gnome MPlayer which must have been installed with the update because I never installed it. Whilst going through Synaptic, I found that the MPlayer GUI had been removed, so I re-installed it. However nothing happened when I attempted to open videos with it.

When I tried to use it through the terminal I got the error message:
mplayer: relocation error: mplayer: symbol codec_wav_tags, version LIBAVFORMAT_52 not defined in file libavformat.so.52 with link time reference

I found a bug report on this very problem here [URL]. The conclusion was that the person filing the bug report was using a version of ffmpeg not found in Debian and that he'd need a version of MPlayer built with his version of ffmpeg libs. I'm assuming that this is also the case with me, however I'm not sure how to go about finding a build or simply building a version of MPlayer with whatever version of ffmpeg that I'm using. For reference, I'm using Squeeze.

Oct 24, 2010

Somehow and I'm not sure how. But opengl apps will completely hang Ubuntu 10.10 x64.This is my 2nd fresh install. I'm using the latest nvidia driver for my asus gtx460 (260.19.12)Have already verified rendering is enabled, uninstalled nouveau & blacklisted, mesa glx is installed, no errors (that I can see), etc.When I run apps, even a gl screensaver, it will hang my whole box.

And I've tested this in World of Padman, Alien Arena, Call of Duty 4 (under Wine), even Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Apps will start, but any gl content will quickly hang.This is the first time running ubuntu x64, and a new box

Ubuntu :: Can't Open Terminal And Other Apps After Automatically Update And Reboot

Sep 24, 2010

I did an automatic update and rebooted this morning and I now have a bit of a nightmare situation where I can't open the majority of applications, including the terminal. When I rebooted, my desktop loaded as normal, but then when I try to open the terminal (from Applications -> Accessories or from my quick launch panel), nothing happens other than the quick launch panel disappears for a second then reappears. This is the case for most other apps, but not for Chrome (obviously).

EDIT: Used Alt+F2 to open the terminal, ran safe upgrade and then rebooted, but still having the same issue. As Ubuntu was booting, there was a "Broken pipe" message, which didn't stop the boot process but is still a bit worrying. I've run a file system check but this hasn't resolved the problem either.
