Ubuntu :: File Menu Not Visible For All Applications
Nov 25, 2010
Applications working properly with SUDO only UBUNTU Noteboox 10.10 XUBUNTU I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick notebook version on my HP Compaq nc6400 (Intel core2 CPU T5600@1.83GHZ). Later installed Xfce4. So, I am now on Xubuntu on top of Ubuntu (it seems).Coming to my problem, even though application working fine normally, Menu is not displayed in most of the applications. Ex: Transmission, GIMP, Mousepad, Pinta, gedit ........ No application shows the file,edit.. menus.
Also file sharing is also not possible in normal mode. When I right click on any folder or file sharing option is not visible. But if I run these applications with SUDO the menus are appearing. When I open nautilus with SUDO , I am able to get sharing options in right click. I tried the below command as advised in thread.php?p=6474144 But it failed
I have a clean install of openSUSE 11.4 64 bit using gnome as the desktop manager. When selecting applications from the gnome menu, randomly the application will appear to not launch. However, if I click anywhere in left, upper portion of my desktop it becomes obvious that the application has launched and is not visible. For example, yast will not appear but clicking in that portion of my desktop causes various windows to appear that correspond to the different options in the yast home screen.
I have a problem with eclipse and naultis and some other applications that the menu bar(File Edit View) is not visible. I actually bfore getting this issue I try to modify using gconf-editor and installed some themes for gnome.
i am having a problem on Ubuntu 10.10. In system menu, there is no Administration or Preferences menu.Also, application menu does not show anything. I am using Ubuntu since 2 weeks and still not used to to the terminal commands for running applications and admin tools.
one more thing.When i booted my PC today it reported an error and process terminated before reaching the login window. So i restarted and chose recovery mode. it also reported some errors and tried to fix the problem. it deleted some files i think. and my system is working again but with above mentioned problem.
find file-roller (aka 'Archive Manager') in xubuntu's Applications menu. I surely have it; it is the default application for opening archives, I can invoke it from the terminal but I can't just... run it from the Applications drop-down.I even tried the Application Finder with no luck using the keywords file-roller, archive, file, roller, .zip. .tar, etc. No luck.Can anyone else find it on their Applications dropdown menu? Or at least tell me that they can't find it either?I'm curious if I have some configuration glitch, or if this is a bug, or maybe there's just something in the water here.
Only "Favourites", "Run Command" and "Leave" is shown on the classic KDE menu, same thing when switching to Launcher Menu Style. Missing Applications and everything else. File associations is not working. Double clicking any type of file it asks to install the program and the known applications menu is empty.
I tried to add a new user, same problem with that. I also noticed that when running Chrome it asks to be the default web browser each time even when I say yes.
I have not been messing with anything, I suspect it happened during a update, but I got the exact same repositories on 2 other x64 machines where there is no problem.
I'm using KDE 4.6.0 from the factory repository.
I tried to reinstall some KDE4 packages without any luck.
I do not want to reinstall the entire system or downgrade KDE.
I remove the applications which i don't use from main-menu. Now i can not see them from "open with" menu when i right click to a file.
Also it will be very nice if Ubuntu can show me on the "open with" menu the possibilities of applications which can open properly the file type which i want to open. I try to configure with ubuntu-tweak's "file type manager" but it is not possible to configure all of file types. I think Ubuntu's applications must to know which applications has to show for which file types. And i don't know how to do that. I need an application like this : url
I get a new user from the same OS, and i see that the same problem still there... For example many many compressed files, audio or graphic files are not associated with vlc or gimp.
I try to configure from system files of gnome but it is very complicated.
I feel shy asking this question but, 90% of the applications I install in Ubuntu (last release), do not show up later on in the applications menu, so I cant run them. I know it seems silly, but I can't find the way to handle this inconvenience. Is there a place (like Start> All programs in Windows), were I could find and run all the programs I install?
i stalled ubuntu 11.04 , i am following some tutorials in order to learn ubuntu. I noticed that the top menu is not visible in ubuntu 11.04. How to get it back. i found this article in internet. will this work [URL]
I was wondering if there was any way to remove icons from the installed applications menu?I recently attempted to install GOG.com's Zork Anthology using Wine and when I de-installed, the icons for those files were still listed in installed applications. Is there anyway to delete them manually?
Ubuntu 10.04 I removed the Me Menu from the panel and then put it back (right click -> Add to Panel -> Indicator Applet Session). The Me Menu came back, but my name is not on the panel. When the Me Menu came back it was just a small blank on the panel next to the Power Button. There was no name, no icon, no nothing to tell me that was the Me Menu. In fact, I only accidentally found it when I happened to click in that blank space. I checked to see if there was any sort of Preferences setting for the Me Menu so I could get it to display my name for me to click on (like it did before), but could not see a setting like that. How can I make the Me Menu to be more visible than just a blank spot on the panel?
Menu sometimes will stay visible on the desktop or on top of other windows after selecting them. To fix it I normally log out then log back in. Its been doing it for a few weeks. I install lots of eye candy/themes etc and have Avant, docky and cario-dock and think it be may some eye candy I installed, not sure. I have a ATI graphics card thats been tested by the distro.Using the latest 10.10 as I update security and recommended updates via update manager.
The problem I am facing is the left menu launch bar is not appearing when I startup my machine. The top and bottom menus appear after running gnome-panel in a terminal, but it does not fix the left had side launchbar.If i click in the area where the launch bar is I can start some applications, and sometimes the bar will flash ever so briefly.I am really excited to move away from Microsoft, but I wont be able to until this last piece of the puzzle is fixed.My system details are as follows:

I have Opensuse 11.2 installed (on hd0 at the time of installation) To install Windows 7 alongside I had to switch my hard drives (hd0 became hd1 and vice versa) What is the best approach to reinstall grub and get both Opensuse and Win7 visible in the grub menu?
I'm trying to change the icon on my custom main menu on Ubuntu 10.10 doing this> sudo gconf-editor apps/panel/default_setup/objects/menu_bar.I gave object_type menu-object and custom_icon path as /home/ john/Pictures/menu.png then I checked use_custom_icon but with no luck (notice that I've succeed doing this in a virtual machine with the exact settings)Also I want to have icons on places and system, so I did thisdesktop/gnome/interface and clicked menus_have_icons.what I'm missing?
This may be elementary to some, and prolly should to me. Quiet awhile ago I took off wine and deleted EVERYTHING wine from my /home. Now I want to try wine again, and I know it's installed, but it don't show up in applications. I've tried "edit menus > revert" but that don't work. I hear wine has made some progress and don't want to format my /home partition.
I've installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop using WUBI to preserve my Windows XP installation. I plan to use it for work so have installed our VPN client and a desktop sharing application through a .sh script and a .deb package respectively. The Applications Menu was updated with the submenu and icons for the new applications and I copied thm to the desktop as well. However when I log out and log back in again my menus and desktop have reverted back to what they were before, and my icons have disappeared.
I just downloaded the most recent SuperTuxKart from SourceForge. It is ready-to-run (no compiling, no making).The script that runs the whole thing contains this single line:Code:LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./bin/: bin/supertuxkartOf course, when I double-click on it, I select Run and I'm off racing Tux.But I'd like this to be in the Applications > Games menu.I tried adding a launcher and for the command I just browsed to that script and clicked OK.But when I click the launcher, nothing starts.So what to do? The script has no shebang line, do I put one in? Granted I can just create a desktop shortcut, but I'd really like it to be up there with my other games.
How do i run applications that i have installed, that are not listed in the application menu? ive installed many programs with no problem-- then, i couple that i have installed from the package manager state that they have installed successfully, yet i have no idea where to find them in any menus.
I set up an Ubuntu server install yesterday. I have used Ubuntu desktop for quite some time and have no issue with command line. I have everything working, except SMB shares. The share still works if I enter it's path manually (//server/share) but even shares I want to be viewable by browsing are not. (Attempted to browse in Nautilus, Windows and Mac file managers.) Server is running 10.10 (AMD64). Dump of smb.conf (generated with SWAT, which also works otherwise) follows. Solution with either SWAT or editing the file manually is fine.
I have tried installing logmein in wine. It installed fine, but didn't work so I removed it. Its icons though, would not be deleted so I removed Wine entry in "Edit menus".
after this I purged wine, deleted /.wine and reinstalled, but the menu entries do not get reinstalled. I know how to make launchers, what I want is the interactive menus back (browse c, uninstall and programs)
I want to put a script of mine in the applications menu , so that when I click on it , it executes itself ...so I created a new application by the name myapplication.desktop in /usr/share/applications/ . But when in GUI mode I traverse down to this directory and click on myapplication.desktop . It gives me an error "myapplication.desktop is not a directory". The crazy part is that when I run it using the terminal freedom@freedom-laptop: /usr/share/applications$ myapplication it runs perfectly well. I can't understand the problem...the script is correct , but I don't know about the error saying "it is not a directory" as all the other files in there are also files and they do run even in graphical mode .
If I'm perfectly honest, I really don't like the "messaging menu". I don't like the way it's a single point that lumps all sorts of messages together. From a socialite's perspective, I'm sure it's awesome... from a more business orientated perspective, it's cumbersom - the icon is green, does that mean I have an important email, a new post has popped up on my RSS feed (via Liferea), or is it just Bob saying "Hi" in Empathy... I won't know until I click it I would rather have separate notification icons for the individual applications, just like it used to be. Now, I know how to remove application from the Messaging Menu... or at least I thought I did.
I just tried removing 'gwibber' from /usr/share/indicators/messages/applications I have stopped using Empathy (I have used Pidgin/GAIM for a lot longer and I'm stuck in my ways ), so that's gone. I have removed the PPA version of Liferea that had Message Menu integration, so that's gone. I have removed Evolution as I use (and have done so for ~10 years) ClawsMail, so that's gone. The last thing I want to get rid of is Gwibber. I like Gwibber, I just don't want it in the Messaging Menu.
i recently installed spotify for wine for a second time, but the icon has not appeared in the applications>wine menu like it did the first time i installed it, is there a way to add the icon to the wine menu, or a reason why the icon did not go straight to the wine menu like it normally does when a new program is installed?
