Ubuntu :: Firefox Doesn't Start Upon Click On Its Icon

Feb 12, 2010

this morning I got a bad surprise: Firefox doesn't start upon my click on its icon.
Tried to uninstall and reinstall Firefox.... Even its icon disappeared from menus after reinstallation (no way to see it in the menu editor). I tried to start it from command line:

code
firefox %u
and got this reply from Ubuntu:
GLib-WARNING **: g_set_prgname() called multiple times

I am using Chrome now but I had some useful add-ons on Firefox and wouldn't like to loose them...

Networking :: Manager Not Listing All Networks / Doesn't Show Them In The List When Left Click The Tray Icon?

Jul 3, 2010

I have two wifi routers. If I stand next to the main one with my laptop I can connect and access the internet no problem. The other router is in my office, and the bridging is messed up, so while I see the essid and bssid using 'iwlist scanning' and nm-tool, I can't connect to it.

Now, my main router's signal still reaches to my office, just not as strong as the borked router in my office. I need to be able to choose which wifi network to connect to without wasting time walking between rooms. I added entries for both in network-manager, but it doesn't show them in the list when I left click the tray icon! How the do I connect to the network I want?

OpenSUSE :: Pathetic Application - Choqok - Click Authenticate With Twitter Button - Firefox Icon Pops Up And Bounces Around

Jun 21, 2011

I got sick to DEATH of Adobe AIR and TweetDeck screwing up constantly, and then Adobe announces there will be no more Adobe AIR for Linux. Fine, screw 'em, I'll switch to something else. So I hunt around for the options, most of which suck. Then I discover Choqok is already installed on my machine (11.4). Except the POS doesn't work.

To use it, I have to authenticate with my Twitter account. So I click Add, select Twitter, it pops up the dialog. I leave the alias as Twitter, click the authenticate with Twitter button. The Firefox icon pops up and bounces around - but Firefox is already running. So nothing happens! No Twitter access, no page loaded, nothing. I shut down Firefox, try it again. Same deal. As usual, no one bothered to test this POS software before releasing it. how to get this **** to authenticate to Twitter in the absence of ANY useful documentation for this junk?

Ubuntu :: (Compiz) Middle Click On Firefox Doesn't Rotate The Cube?

Oct 13, 2010

I was just wondering about something. I have linked the middle click to initiate the cube rotation and it works perfectly except when I have the cursor on firefox. Then it just acts like I middleclicked in firefox itself. Personally I like this behaviour but was wondering why it is JUST firefox that has it. Would be great if I could achieve the same in Blender

Ubuntu :: Panel Applet - If Right-click Doesn't Include Move - How To Move That Icon

Sep 19, 2010

For Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / Gnome 2.30.2.

I have two applets on my Gnome panel -- NetworkManager Applet 0.8, and Klipper (it works better than Glipper) -- that I want to move.

HOWEVER, right-clicking the panel icons does not enable me to move these applets, as follows:

- NetworkManager Applet 0.8 does not include a Move item in its list of options.

- Klipper displays a long list of Klipper options but no Move option.

How I can move these items to new locations on the Gnome panel?

Ubuntu :: Can't Maximize Or Minimize When Click On An Icon?

When I click the Firefox icon, normally I can maximize and minimize in the window (either top or bottom panel). This has disappeared and I am not sure why.

I have seen when people click on an icon that is on the doc, it opens up a pop up window that has application you can click on. I have Cairo Dock. With it, I can add a shortcut menu and a Stack icon.

Ubuntu :: When Right Click On The Wireless Icon (the Four Bars, Which Are Empty And Have An X By Them Now)?

Apr 19, 2010

When I right click on the wireless icon (the four bars, which are empty and have an X by them now). I click information about the connection, and it says "no active valid connection found" (or something like that, it's in spanish).I right clic and clic "edit connections" and it shows me five tabs: cabled, wireless, broad band, vpn, and dsl. The wireless tab is empty, there are no connections.I looked at ubuntu help, and it says to put this in terminal:Quote:sudo lshw -C networkand that it should say either "CLAIMED, UNCLAIMED, ENABLED or DISABLED"but instead it says, really fast,CPUIDPCI (sysfs)(and something else too fast to read)I put in another series of commands to the terminal to give information-- I read these on another post, that they're necessary for someone (you! I hope) to tell me what's wrong and how to fix it.

(I got these results by copying them and putting them on a USB, obviously)any ideas would be welcome!!(in non technical language if possible, I don't know much about computers, though I'm learning!)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Panel Icon - One Click To Open?

Jun 15, 2010

I used to be able to open the Rhythmbox window by just clicking the Rhythmbox icon in the notification area. Now in Lucid it brings up a menu (isn't that what right click is for??) and I have to select "Show Rhythmbox", and sometimes I accidentally click on "Quit" and I have to start Rhythmbox again. It's a real PITA. Is there any way to make it the way it was before? I've looked at the Rhythmbox options and can't find anything about it. (Why do GNOME applications always have barely any options?)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Banshee Will Not Open When Click Its Icon In The Launcher

Sep 1, 2011

Banshee will not run when I click its icon in the launcher. The little arrow appears next to it, and then nothing happens. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04. I ran it in the terminal and got this (x's inserted for username):

Code:
[Info 06:10:11.264] Running Banshee 2.0.0: [Ubuntu 11.04 (linux-gnu, x86_64) @ 2011-06-28 05:39:10 UTC]

[Info 06:10:12.034] All services are started 0.637278

[Code]...

Another piece of information that may be relevant: this started happening immediately after I installed a GStreamer plugin, specifically the one for aac, xvid, mpeg2, and faad. I've since uninstalled this package, but Banshee still will not load.
