Ubuntu :: GNOME Window Darkening Behaviour / How To Turn It Off?

Apr 5, 2011

GNOME has a feature where it darkens windows when the program is hung up on a calculation (I think this is the condition under which it darkens anyway.)Not sure what this feature is, but I want to turn it off. Don't know how to go about this, as I don't even know what the feature is called. Anyone know how to turn it off?(It tends to darken a program I use when the program is actually not getting hung up in any appreciable way.)

OpenSUSE :: Erratic Window Behaviour

Feb 7, 2010

I am having a problem with how my windows behave.My windows will maximize and minimize over and over, scroll bars will scroll to the bottom/right automatically, if I click a menu it will pop up for a fraction of a second and then go away. It makes my desktop almost unusable.I can't figure out if this is a mouse or video issue. I have a radeon 9500, and a logitech LX3 optical mouse. BTW, this problem is present in other distributions on my system. I am running KDE. It even does this on the livecd.

Ubuntu :: How To Show The Launcher In Gnome 3 And Change Its Behaviour

May 14, 2011

How can I show the gnome 3 launcher on the left of the screen and maybe hide it (I dont really need the hide option though), the same way the unity launcher does.

The only way I can see it now is by clicking the super button to put the laptop in the activities mode view (shown in the picture) so I can see it. I need to change its behavior. any alternative behavior?

Ubuntu :: Turn Off Window Effects But Keep Compiz?

Jun 17, 2010

I was hoping someone could tell me how to turn off the basic windows effects in compiz but keep it turned on so I can use something like Docky.

The reason is because nautilus takes a few painful seconds to open up with the effects turned on and some times I end up clicking a folder etc a second time thinking it hasn't opened.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Can't Turn On Desktop Effects Neither In KDE Nor In Gnome

i just installed opensuse 11.3 (after being on Mint for couple of years) and really impressed with stability compared to latest Mint 9/Ubuntu10.04.the only issue I have now is I can't turn on desktop effects neither in KDE nor in Gnome.In gnome i can't change compiz seetings at all - the windows freezes after i try to click on 'Enable desktop effects', and that's it. It worked fairly well in ubuntu though.

General :: Turn Off Font-antialiasing Only For Gnome-terminal But Not For Other Applications?

Apr 13, 2010

I'm running GNOME (gnome-session under xmonad). I want to turn off antialiasing (i.e. use monochrome mode) for fonts in gnome-terminal. But I want to retain antialiasing for other applications, like Firefox. Is this possible?

Antialiasing is great and almost necessary for using Firefox or Chrome. But it makes the fonts in gnome-terminal blurry at sizes around 12 or smaller.

Otherwise, I'll just have to use xterm, which seems not to anti-alias its fonts under any circumstances.

Software :: Gnome Screen-saver Does Not Turn On When System Is Idle - FC-11

Dec 1, 2009

My Gnome screensaver doesn't work, although it once did.

I have searched for a solution to this problem but no luck. I am running FC 11 and out-of-the-box gnome. At first the screensaver worked normally, shutting off the screen after 5 mins. Now it does not do so. I found the following command line suggestion in the forums, and it looks like it may point to a problem -- the screensaver is inactive, but how to make it active? I may be misunderstanding the term inactive, of course. Logically, the screensaver would have to be inactive if I am typing a command.

In any case, the query command shows:

Just in case the screensaver really was not running, I tried this command (which I found in another post):

But the query returns the same thing as before.

The only thing I can think of that might be an issue is that using the "appearances" background facility I added a couple dozen pictures that I thought I might use as screen background. Not long after that I discovered that my screen did not go black after 5 mins as expected. Not sure this correlation has any causal meaning, however. I then tried various things, finally returning to the plain (blue) default. That seemed to fix it for a short while, then after a couple of days, the bad or non-behavior returned -- the screensaver does not work.

(update -- I removed all the extra background pics and it makes no difference.)

My system runs all the time, but I don't want the screen to be on all the time.

Ubuntu :: Modifying Location Of Gnome Window?

Feb 3, 2011

Does anyone know if it's possible to specify a screen location when opening a window in gnome? I have created a custom launcher on the top panel in gnome. It launches a bash script that I wrote, but the script requires input that can change. The launcher command is like this:

gnome-terminal -x bash -c "buildit"

The functionality of it works great. What I would like to do however, is control where the gnome-terminal window actually opens. It seems be random and based on other windows that are open. So sometimes it opens on the top-left of the screen, other times it's the bottom-left, etc.

I use Compiz as my window manager (e.g. under System > Preferences > Appearance > Visual Effects I have chosen the "Normal") with an Nvidia 8600GT (driver version is 260.19.06).

Is there some way I can control the screen location (maybe specify the x,y coordinate) of where I want this window to open? Ideally it would be great to force the window to open directly below the icon in my panel. Is this even possible?

Ubuntu :: IBus - No Input Window In Gnome 3

May 16, 2011

I recently installed gnome 3, using the ppa -> dist-upgrade -> install gnome-shell method. IBus used to work fine with gnome 2.3 and unity, but in gnome 3, the icon is still there, the deamon is still running (I presume) but no matter where i click, it always shows 'no input window'... (for example, i can't type anything other than English here...).

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.

Ubuntu :: Transparency For Gnome's Window-switcher-applet?

May 7, 2010

panels can be made transparent by clicking on preferences/background.

But for some reason there is no obvious way to change the transparency of applets. Their transparency depends on the current theme. For example with the theme "radiance" window-switcher and date are opaque. With "human-clearlooks" both are transparent.

Is there a way change the transparency without changing the theme?

Ubuntu :: Can't Change Default Window Theme In Gnome 3

Jun 8, 2011

I recently went through a desktop crisis after removing unity from 11.04, installing openbox, hating it, and then installing Gnome 3. What's weird is certain applications like chrome and some other system things appear to use the theme I have (as in, they look nice) but windows like terminal, file browser, and most other applications including the default log in screen all look like windows 95.

you can see the square unstyled buttons. I'm just wondering how to apply a full on system theme to apply to all windows in gnome 3. tweak-gnome didn't look like it could do it, and after running through the themes (redmond, clearlooks, etc) they didn't have any impact on these windows.

Ubuntu :: GNOME - Left-clicking Anywhere In Window Results In Dragging?

Mar 25, 2010

When I click the window with the left mouse button my window gets dragged, instead that the GUI elements are getting selected.

For example: Opening Firefox and selecting the address field doesn't activate the field to write in. Clicking buttons is impossible. Any action in the window seems like blocked. I'm working this around by holding Shift + Left mouse button; then it's possible to activate the GUI element. Observation: This happened just today when I switched on my computer and seems to affect only me as my user! Logging in as another user doesn't bring up this error. Everything works as usual as possible. The Gnome Panel is not affected. Closing, minimizing/maximizing windows is possible. Clicking anywhere on the window with the right mouse button opens the window options menu, not the expected options. Hovering over a button seems to be recognized as it changes its properties, but clicking still drags the window. Restarting X and restarting Ubuntu doesn't change anything.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Desktop Does Not Remember Window Position / Size?

Jul 7, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

The issue is that Gnome will not "remember" the size and location of the window in which an app was last run. For example - I run Disk Usage Analyzer and stretch the window to be the full height of the screen and about half the width of the screen and move it to the far left of the desktop. I then close the app. The next time I run it the app comes up in a "default" window size, not the size I last used, positioned randomly on the desktop.

p.s. I should add that some apps seem to remember their prior window size/position. For example OpenOffice.org, Firefox, Nautilus.

Ubuntu :: Increase Gnome-panel Window List Size?

Oct 7, 2010

I am in the process of customizing my desktop, and I have run into a problem. As a programmer, I will invariable end up with tons of windows open. I would like to expand the gnome-panel's Window List's y size to allow more applications to show without being crunched together.

That's the way the desktop currently looks, notice the tiny Window List in the top left. That's as big as it gets. I want to expand it all along the entire left side. I have a feeling the answer is in gconf-editor, but i just can't find the right field to modify.

Ubuntu :: 10.04.GNOME (Classic) Why Does Some Terminal Window Background Appear Differently

May 22, 2011

Why does on some computers my terminal window have a background I can see through and on others its a solid color? I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed on 4 machines as base OS and I have many virtual machines of it also. I havent changed the terminal preferences on any of them, however on some computers the terminal background which is purple is not solid in that you can see what is in the background behind it. On others the background is truly solid purple; you can not see behind/through it.

Is there any way to change the terminal window for these machines that are displaying solid to the 'see-thru' way? Ive been using some ebooks and things and really like opening up vi/vim in the purple see-thru window that allows me to write and see the text in the background...however on some machines I can not do this because the terminal display is truly solid. ? All my computers have the same profile settings for terminal..

color = use system theme
background = Solid color

Note - I am making a distinction here between what I call see-thru and the 'transparent' setting in the terminal preferences as this seems to use the desktop background and is different from what I am talking here.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Panel Covers Top Part Of Application Window?

Jul 5, 2011

after upgrading to Natty (and playing around some with Unity) I noticed that the top part of the application windows are often hidden/covered by the gnome panel (see attachments).

This is particularly annoying for the rdesktop session (second jpg) which I had set up so that it gave maximum desktop size to the rdp session while leaving the panel of top. If you look carefully you see that the "panel gap" is not at the bottom of the screen, while the panel itself covers the top of the rdp window.

It seems like, that the 'anchor point' for application windows used to be '+0+24' (so just below the panel) while now it's '+0+0' in the top left corner of the desktop. I suspect that while playing with unity I reset one of the compiz options which takes care of this. But I can't find it.
