Ubuntu :: Flashing Taskbar With Gnome-terminal Screen And Irssi?

Feb 20, 2010

I've been trying to get this working for a while. On a remote server I'm running irssi in a screen session to keep my IRC client connected 24/7. I SSH to that server and reattach the screen session. irssi is able to send alerts when certain highlight words are mentioned (e.g. my nick). I would like gnome-terminal to flash in the taskbar when that happens. I was able to get this working with Putty on Windows, but I can't figure out how to get that working with gnome-terminal. Is it at all possible? The "Terminal bell" setting in the gnome-terminal profile doesn't seem to change anything.

Ubuntu :: Can't Turn On Terminal Bell In Gnome-terminal Using Remote Screen Session With Irssi

Nov 6, 2010

I'm using 10.04, and gnome-terminal GNOME Terminal 2.30.2 . I have irssi running on screen session on remote host. And I've been struggling for quite many days to configure it to produce either visual feedback or ring terminal's bell when I receive a private message or one of those that are highlighted.

My compiz settings window in General tab has 'Audible bell' checked.

My GNOME terminal has 'Terminal bell' checked.

I also added 'set bell-style audible' to my ~/.inputrc

And I also tried to manually load pcspkr module into my kernel.

No of the above helped or at least I haven't been able to notice any difference.

I also used some commands for irssi to produce bell sign.

Jan 24, 2010

Just installed Ubuntu 9.10 side by side with XP. When trying to run ubuntu from Grub the terminal screen opens but then starts to flash. This makes it difficult to type and login. When I do eventually login it just goes no further than a terminal prompt.If I use recovery mode the screen does not flash but still cannot get to the desktop

Ubuntu Installation :: Flashing Gnome Desktop And Login Screen ?

Jan 7, 2010

I'm having this problem with Ubuntu 9.10, it has happened the three times I have tried to install it.

I have made a video showing the problem: [url]

After upgrading and rebooting, the flashing login screen appears and it is not possible to use the GDM.

I have tried to install KDM and it works, but when trying to load gnome I get the blinking bars again.

I have also tried this (and got the same problem); installing the Nvidia driver (manufacturer), installing the Nvidia driver (repositories) and installing no screen driver.

I think the problem is with GNOME, and not with the graphics card.

Now I have installed windows xp :-/, for the first time in a whole year, cause it is not possible for me to use Ubuntu 9.10 at all.

Ubuntu :: No Flashing Window On Taskbar?

Nov 14, 2010

I am running a new install of 10.10 and have a problem with windows flashing when they need attention. For example a new IM message.

This happens with both aMSN and pidgin. So as far i am aware its not a problem specific to the application.

I'm using lib notify for now so I don't miss incoming messages all together.

Im running compiz with extra visual effects.

Slackware :: No Accentuated Chars Ssh - Screen - Irssi

Oct 5, 2010

I use Slackware 13.1 32 bits in my eeepc and I have only Xfce installed on in it (didn't install KDE). So I use Xfce on it. On my other machines when I'm using irssi on konsole I don't have any problems with latin chars (accentuated) but when I'm using Terminal on Xfce i have it. In irssi or in terminal? How can I put it right? I use Portuguese layout keyboard. I already see that is in irssi at terminal on Xfce. But I have "/set term_charset UTF-8".

Ubuntu :: Taskbar Switching On And Off In The Terminal

Jan 6, 2010

I am a new Ubuntu user (three months so far on Karmic amd64, and very happy with my new OS). I had to do a force shutdown after a system freeze (while viewing video on my tv - dual display - with vlc). Upon restart, I noticed the network connection icon missing from the taskbar; there was an empty "slot" between the evolution and sound icons so I figured the network icon was simply not appearing correctly.

I right clicked in that empty "slot" and chose to remove from taskbar with the intention of putting it back. After clicking remove, the taskbar started a cycle of constant disappear and reappear (about one second between each). The cycle is too fast to allow navigating in menus but I can access the terminal. Being new and all, I don't know how to configure the taskbar through the terminal... fix my taskbar in the terminal?

OpenSUSE :: Gnome-terminal Glitch Causes Upper Left Of Screen Freeze

Apr 14, 2011

When it launches, sometimes a few mins later, the upper left of the screen (where gnome-terminal sits) freezes and becomes unresponsive. The cursor always stays as the 'text entry' cursor when in the region. If I alt-drag the window and close, nothing changes.It only goes away when I right click the area (even if I have moved/closed the terminal window) I have terminal options so I select 'close' then the screen resumes.

Ubuntu :: Minimize Open Terminal Window To An Icon On My Taskbar?

Aug 1, 2010

I have a desktop computer and a NAS, running Kubuntu & Ubuntu. I use WOL to wake the NAS and then mount the drives (NFS) on my desktop.
I've placed an icon on my KDE desktop which wakes the NAS and mounts the drives, this works great, but I've set it to run in terminal so I can enter the password for mounting the drives. This leaves me with an open window which I don't want to close because the NAS is set to shutdown 15 minutes after ssh logout.
My question is how can I minimize the open terminal window to an icon on my taskbar?

Ubuntu :: Screen Keeps On Flashing?

Jun 23, 2011

was trying to get rid of the ubuntu menu and try to change how the desktop looks. It's hard to explain but it was first the desktop you get when you first start up ubuntu on NetbookThen I somehow turned in into a desktop esque menu. With all the icons and stuff. Today my battery accidentally fell out as I moved it around and when I restarted my computer all went fine until the screen started flashing. On the upper right hand corner, was a transparent square with 2 arrows when it flashes. It still showed that I connected to my wireless and etc.

Ubuntu :: Flashing Screen At Login?

Oct 30, 2010

Recently, whenever I restart my computer, I am automatically logged in and a rapid sequence of flashes repeats itself over and over. First a white screeen appears. Then my desktop background appears, dimmed and overlaid with the netbook-launcher's up and down arrows in the upper lefthand corner. Then my desktop background appears in full color, with my panel above it but no launcher. Rinse wash repeat. I assume it has something to do with Compiz. When escape to a tty and type "compiz --display :0--replace &" the loop ends and everything works. Any ideas how to avoid having to do this every time I restart

Ubuntu Installation :: Flashing Screen On 11.04?

Apr 28, 2011

I've just downloaded and installed Ubuntu 11.04 (amd64) and every time I boot i get a flashing screen. I didn't have any problems at all with the LiveCD. The graphics card and my wireless adapter worked out of the box. But after the install it won't work. I can choose the OS in GRUB and then there's a purple screen. After that the screen starts flashing and I can hear the login sound.

I have tried using "nomodeset" but that didn't work either. There is no flashing, just a purple screen all the time. But it was possible to enter tty. I also tried booting the Recovery Mode but it just loads and then a pink flashing screen appears.

The graphics card is a XFX Radeon HD6870 1GB.

Ubuntu :: Constant Screen Flashing On Boot Up?

Jul 5, 2010

I recently wiped and partitioned my hard drive on my Sony Vaio Z series laptop. I set up the NTFS partition for windows, the Ext-4 partition for Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix, and a large NTFS partition for my all my media. I installed the netbook remix off of a flash drive, and I couldn't have asked for a smoother install. Everything went fine, and I proceeding to install google chrome and all the other little goodies. After that, I configured all my settings and ran the update manager to get everything just fine. After a reboot, I became frustrated and prevented maximus from running on start up because I did not want every windows I opened to be maximized. After a reboot, the screen would flash very brightly more than once per second. I could see the top bar with the processes and such as well as the correct background, but I cannot do anything because the screen will not stop flashing. I figured out I could stop it from flashing by pressing ctrl+alt+F7, but the screen just freezes where it is at and is still unusable. Desperate to start enjoying my Ubuntu Netbook Remix, I wiped the Ubuntu partition and reinstalled and did everything EXACTLY the same except instead of preventing maximus from opening, I used gconf-editor to change the setting to not maximize everything by default. Reboot, exact same problem.

I've searched everywhere for a solution, but I only find people with vague similarities or explanations. Could it possibly be a graphics problem? My laptop has 2 graphics cards in it - an Intel integrated one and an nVidia one. The nVidia one has a hardware issue so I just use the Intel one for now. It is also worth noting that I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 (desktop) on my machine before and I never had any such problem.

Also, I tried booting up in the "safe mode" equivalent, but I eventually encounter a black screen and I am forced to hold down the power button to shut it down.

(also, if it's worth anything, I know how to use windows well if there's any way I can change something in Ubuntu from my windows installation)

Ubuntu :: Purple Screen / Flashing Dot Boot

Apr 3, 2011

when I install them all goes well but when I get into the GUIs I can hardly press anything - major bug with mouse and it is really annoying. Secondly there is a big gap between the GUI and my screen's edge. Hmm, I think - it must be a problem with the GPU driver and that might be the thing also messing with the mouse clicks. I download the drivers provided by the Ubuntu community - all goes well and I restart - stuck at purple screen after the "moving dots" on boot. So I reinstall the whole OS and try with the drivers provided by NVIDIA - same thing. I try the same procedure with Kubuntu and no progress.

CentOS 5 :: Flashing KDE Applications In Windows List Of Gnome Panel?

May 1, 2009

I am running CentOS 5.3, Gnome Panel 2.16.1. It seems some KDE applications just flash crazily in the windows list (task bar in Gnome panel). Usually when a new event happens to a window, it flashes to remind the user (I hate this *feature* anyway, but can't disable it...) But this time, when I switch from another workspace to the workspace that has (more than one) KDE applications (like kile and kdvi), they just simply start to flash, and the flashing window list appears on every workspace unless you click it.

I tried to disable the animation from gconf-editor, without success. Does anyone have similar issues? It is really annoying..

Ubuntu :: Dell Latitude C640 'Flashing Screen'

Oct 30, 2010

I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook to my sisters laptop (Dell Latitude C640) but there appears to be a problem with the screen going black then opening the primary window, then loading the sidebar and then going black again.

For example, I'll hover over the new bar on the left and it'll just disappear, the screen will go black then will suddenly come to life again and then disappear, go black and so on. It just cycles through that.

Ubuntu :: Blank Screen With Flashing Cursor At Top - Won't Boot

Feb 7, 2011

Running 10.04 as the only OS on a HP desktop - been running fine for months. Did an update - probably hadn't done one for a couple of months - may be a red herring. The system appeared to crash while inactive. Trying to boot - I get the Ubuntu 10.04 screen for a short while then it goes to blank screen with a flashing cursor at the top - occasionally it will give me an error that /home is not ready - skip or manual fix. I have sda1 = ext4 root

sda2 = swap
sda3 = ext4 home
sdb1 = ntfs

I removed sdb1 from fstab as initially it was complaining about this drive not being ready. The error switched to complaining about /home. I am able to mount both of those filesystems with no problem manually. I ran mke3fs on /home (I forgot the -n parameter! but no problem as I have good backups) - same error - complains about /home not being available at boot even though I can always manually mount it from live cd or manual recovery. I can rebuild this system - and I may as it was upgraded from 9.10 - I may do a fresh 10.04, but I would like to fix the boot problem in case something like this happens again when I actually care about fixing it.I recreated the grub2 configs - I don't have the command to hand, something like: sudo update-grub --root-directory=/mnt/boot/grub /dev/sda

Ubuntu :: 11.04 - White Box Flashing On Flash Player Screen

May 13, 2011

i've installed 11.04 on an intel classmate nl1 netbook (atom n270, gma950 graphics, 1gb ram) but have a problem with flash when i visit a specific website. i don't have any other general problems with flash. e.g. videos works perfectly. the problem is a white box flashing on the flashplayer screen. i installed adobe flash and have tried flashaid. if i select low quality in flashplayer then the problem is much less, but it doesn't go completely. i never had this problem before with windows xp when visiting this site on the same netbook.

i asked the website customer services and this was their reply! "no we have not tested the program on ubuntu personally i have never heard of it before. our it suggested downloading google chrome and using that as your internet browser as that is the recommended browser." changing the browser makes no difference. i tested firefox, seamonkey and chrome. could there be some driver issue with the graphics card?
