Jan 23, 2010

After a fresh install of Fedora 12 I'm delivered to the image on the attachment. Well aside from not being able to see icons on the left, or go to the any terminal and not seeing anything and be forced to blind type and hope for the best there are some other issues. Enabling panel transparency shows video artefacts on the panel.nouveau doesn't enable 3D(I use a NVidia GeForce 9600 GT 512MB and my monitor is a ACER LCD X223W)) kind and point me to resources about the nouveau driver and how to configure it so it starts to work?

Ubuntu :: Use Fake Transparency With Compiz?

Apr 22, 2010

I like having my terminal transparent, but real transparency makes the text unreadable if it overlaps with other stuff. I usually have compiz turned off so that I can use fake transparency. Is there some way to do this with compiz on, so I can have the wobbly windows?

Ubuntu :: How To Set Window Transparency With Compiz

Jul 27, 2010

I couldn't find a section for visual customization. Is it possible to make it so that windows not being used have a certain opacity, and windows being used have another? Also, how can you change the opacity of menus? I used to be able to do this, but it seems I've forgotten.

Ubuntu :: Disable Gnome-terminal Transparency In Compiz ?

Feb 14, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 with Compiz enabled (Visual Effects = Normal, in the System-Preferences-Appearance)

The gnome-terminals are transparent. I would like to disable the transparency, because I have a lot of terminals open at the same time and I don't want to be able to see one below another one.

In the gnome-terminal preferences, Background is set to "solid colour". However, Compiz seems to be over-riding this somehow.

I have the CompizConfig Settings Manager installed. I have looked through it but I can't find an option which disables the transparency for terminals. I tried the Opacity, Brightness and Saturation plugin, but it only allows you to vary the transparency level, not disable it entirely, and there doesn't seem to be a way of setting a default.

I like Compiz very much, so I don't want to disable the desktop effects. Does anyone know how to just disable the gnome-terminal transparency?

I'm not using lubuntu. Somehow I selected that and I can't get rid of it now. I'm on Ubuntu with Gnome.

Ubuntu :: Panel Not Using Transparency Correctly?

Jun 25, 2010

I've been having some trouble getting transparency to work properly on the panels. I've attached a screenshot in which I've got a fully transparent background image applied to the panel, yet the main menu area, status area, and clock are not affected by the background.

I've searched google quit a bit, and all I find are topics saying things like using alt-scroll to make it transparent, but I want all of the icons to remain opaque. Also, people say to use a solid color and adjust the transparency in the properties menu, I've tried all of this, these are obvious.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Window Picker - Include - Exclude Windows

Apr 22, 2011

I use the Scale Windows (aka Window Picker) of Compiz. I'm not entirely happy about the behaviour and i'm not sure if / how i can customise it.

What i want is:that minimized windows also are represented among scaled / exposed windows for me to pick from.
that my panel and dock are still clickable when all my windows are scaled / exposed.

Is there any way i can include / exclude these windows from that effect?

Ubuntu :: Panel Transparency Doesn't Work?

Apr 30, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, and I'm trying to make my panel semi-transparent.

Unfortunately, the whole thing won't go transparent, only the blank areas without applets!

I know you can hack it in Compiz, but then everything goes transparent, including text and icons, which I don't want.

As you can see from the screenshot, I'm using the Radiance theme, but this also occurs with Ambience.

Ubuntu :: Lost Gnome Panel Transparency On Upgrade To 10.04

Jul 25, 2010

I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 10.04 and things went pretty smooth. The only real issue is that I lost the transparency settings for the menu & indicator applets on my top knome panel. I simply don't remember how i did it last time, and i've been searching the net for an hour for a solution with no luck. Many results suggested the use of the Compiz Settings Manager's opacity settings, but that opacity applies to everything, including the text & icons. I thought i used the "gnome color chooser" package to do it last time, but I cannot find the option in the gui. how to make the background of the menu (applications/places/system) and indicator applet have transparent backgrounds while retaining full text/icon brightness?

Ubuntu Installation :: Panel Transparency Is Lost On Restart?

May 2, 2011

I have had no issue with the panel's transparency in previous Ubuntu versions. This all started w/ Natty. I set up transparency (right click on panel, Nav through Properties > Background, Check "Solid Color," slide bar to my preferred opacity, & click "Close." The panel looks as follows: But when I restart the computer it goes grey:

killall command doesn't work, I have moved the panel, I have created a new one. The "closest" I found were people complaining (back in December) that the theme switched to grey. But I don't think the panel is taking up another theme, it is simply not painting the transparent image.

I didn't like Unity so I disabled it (still installed). I also removed indicator-me and indicator-messenger via synaptic as I have since Lucid Lynx. I removed the black bubble notifications and removed the shutdown/logout/restart confirmation/countdown prompt w/ a couple of code-hacks I found online as I have since Jaunty Jackalope. I also tried to change the opacity though an option inside Compiz's "Opacity, Brightness and Saturation". This also made AWN icons transparent so I undid it. I use the "Glossy P" theme w/ "Snow Apple" icons.

Ubuntu :: Icons Changing On Their Own After Installing Compiz?

Jan 3, 2011

I'm using an Acer Aspire One with ubuntu 10.10 Desktop/Netbook and Kubuntu 10.10 installed.I'm using Compiz for the window manager and Emerald for the decorator. I know my problem has something to do with compiz because after uninstalling it, the problem went away, so I'm hoping I'm just missing a setting somewhere.After installing compiz, my icons/system theme (not my window decorations) will change on their own,(Please see attached screenshots) and even when I choose, let's say, 'ambiance' in the appearance menu, the panels for gnome will change, but the icons will not. the only way i can get the ubuntu mono-dark icons to reappear is to logout/restart, etc. However, it will still switch to unity icons on a seemingly random basis. It is a little thing, but it is driving me crazy

No success.I right clicked on the panel and selected "Add new items" but the list of apps is limited.[edit] What I want to do is be able to launch applications from the top panel by adding icons to the panel.

Ubuntu :: Two Battery Icons In Panel?

Aug 17, 2010

I've recently installed 10.04 on my laptop and spent some time configuring it. A while ago I've noticed that there are now two battery icons in the panel in the top-right corner. One seems to be attached to the indicator applet and the other one sits by itself. Changing the settings in the Power Management menu affects both icons in the same way (I can either show or hide them both). Is there any way to remove the extra icon and just keep the one integrated into the indicator?

This is a very minor annoyance really, but it'd still be nice if there was a fix for it.

Update: Now the battery icon in the indicator applet has changed to the chat "evelope" icon, but it still acts as a battery icon (same menu). Something is definitely not right here...

Ubuntu :: Icons Start To Disappear In Panel

May 26, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 32Bit on my Dell Inspiron B130 Laptop, and it works great, way faster then windows XP which was pre-installed on the machine. Everything worked out of the box except for the Wireless but after some reading I was able to get it to work by plugging it in to the wired connection. but anyway the problem I'm having is that it seems like after a few days of use ubuntu starts to act up, things become out of place and not work. this even happens with Linux Mint also. By acting up I mean, Icons start to disappear in the panel, my wireless connection starts to stop working and the only way to keep it on is to either log off and try to log in using KDE instead of GNOME. or open terminal and do the command nm-appt or something someone on the chat told me to do to try and get my wireless icon working.

Ubuntu :: Top Panel Icons Disappear Randomly?

Jun 27, 2010

Randomly, when I start up my computer, the top panel will have some icons missing, or an icon will be covered up by part of another.Example: Note that half of the battery icon is shown where the network manager applet should be. Here is what it is supposed to look like:

This happens very randomly. As you can see by the times, both of those were taken on the same day. I logged out and logged back in, and it look fine.

Ubuntu :: No Panel Or Icons After Login Of Non-first User

Sep 7, 2010

First user, everything still normal. All other users and any added users basically have no desktop now. Background and arrow are there, but no right-click no panels. Have tried every option in other similar posts including deleting .config, .gnome2, etc files. Also tried all the commands at URL..I can login user with xterm session and launch gnome-panel, which provides some functionality, but this basically sucks, because there is no window manager. I have tried changing themes and various compiz stuff, but no success yet. Even removed and reinstalled compiz.
