Ubuntu :: GTK Apps Don't Display Correctly On KDE Until Opening Appearance Preferences?

Jul 18, 2011

I recently installed KDE and began using that instead of Unity (less buggy, IMHO) and it was running smoothly until I began configuring my GTK applications for transition in that. I installed the Oxygen-GTK them from gnome-look.org and set that as my default theme for GTK applications under the KDE appearance preferences.

When I log in, however, GTK applications just use the stock Xorg theme until I run "gnome-appearance-properties" in my terminal.I believe that a fix involving .gtkrc would suffice, but I honestly cannot configure it no matter how hard I try.

Ubuntu :: Most Apps Ignores Appearance Preferences

May 11, 2011

I've just updated to 11.04, switched into the classic desktop (Unity? just say NO), disabled overlay scrollbar, and still I'm confused.

I customized the appearance preferences of my desktop to change the appearances of the widgets. I selected "Clearlooks" but most applications just ignore the preference. Here I attached a screenshot:

While the buttons in "Appearance Preferences" are round-shaped, the buttons in "Network proxy" window are square (probably it's from "Redmond" theme?)

As far as I checked, only the "Appearance Preferences" obeys the setting. Other preferences (e.g. fonts, colors, icons) are ignored too.

Ubuntu :: Can't Get GTK Theme To Show Up In Appearance Preferences

May 19, 2010

I installed a theme called 'elementary' and it said I also needed an iconset for it too.so I tried applying that too.but that just said cant move directory over directory. I searched around and found a "solution" that made things worse.Before I applied the "solution" I had the theme working without the icons set.., the so called solution told me to go to my home and press control+h then go to the .themes directory and delete the theme folder and that's what I did... after that everything stopped working.

I got the iconset working but the theme itself is not showing up on the appearence preferences, the current theme is my previous one.. and when I go to customise theme, then window boder tab.. I see the elementary theme there with a question mark on top of the faded thumbnail,I can't seem to delete it too..

edit: when I select the theme custom it says this theme will not work as intended because the required window manager theme 'elementary' is not installed.

Fedora Installation :: Preferences And Appearance Left Over From Ubuntu?

Jan 31, 2009

I just installed Fedora where my old Ubuntu partition used to be (formatted the partition appropriately first). I have my home directory on a separate partition, so I asked Fedora to mount it as /home. Since I made my username the same as it had been in Ubuntu, I have basically all the same home directory in Fedora as I did in Ubuntu. This is desirable and it makes my life easier for obvious reasons, but something happened that I didn't expect.

All the settings (desktop background, top and bottom panels, keyboard preferences, etc.) have transferred over to Fedora. That's okay except that they just don't work as well in Fedora, and I'm stuck with sort of an ugly window scheme etc. I know it wouldn't be too hard to change all this stuff back manually, but I was wondering if there was a way to change it back the Fedora default appearance. Like my deleting a folder in the home directory or something?

Ubuntu :: Theme Only Works For Appearance Preferences Window?

Oct 17, 2010

I got a new computer recently, and just now installed 10.10. Everything was going great.... until when I enabled the Nvidia drivers and set my dual monitors. While things still work fine, it appears I have no theme set (Aside from the Window Border).

When I check in System->Preferences->Appearance it always shows the theme properly for this one window, while all other windows, and gnome panels etc appear to have no theme set (just use simple flat colours, low graphic mode etc).

Changing the theme (via the Appearance window) does not work, nor does a simple reboot.

Ubuntu :: Appearance Preferences Override Firefox Tango Theme

Mar 6, 2011

I just upgraded to ubuntu 10.04 from 9.10, and one of the first things I did was to find a nice desktop theme. I tried several from gnome-look.org and eventually settled on one called "the days of grace"

Anyway, somewhere along the way, while trying out themes, I used a script provided by a theme author which installed the theme automatically, which had undesirable results. I don't remember the theme that did this, so I'll just call it theme x. The theme x script somehow made firefox use theme x instead of the default firefox "tango" theme, and now the tango theme is not available, because the theme x theme supersedes it.

The theme x does not show up in ubuntu's appearance preferences, but somehow it looks to be linked to the theme I chose, "the days of grace." I can switch to a default ubuntu theme (Ambiance, Radiance, etc.) and I have my firefox tango theme back.

Does anyone know how I can delete this theme x theme, and get back the tango firefox theme?

Ubuntu :: Opening "sound Preferences" From Sound Applet / Preferences Menu Hangs System

Dec 20, 2010

Every time I open "sound preferences" from either the sound applet or the preferences menu pulseaudio CPU usage goes right up to 100% and proceeds to lock up the entire computer. pavucontrol, paman, and all the other pulseaudio utils work fine, except for ubuntu's sound preferences. It affects a new account.This is my 10.04 desktop that is affected. I have just the default pulseaudio config.

OpenSUSE :: Appearance Of Graphical Apps Run As Root ?

Feb 6, 2010

When I run graphical applications as root (on KDE4), they inherit my window decorations setting, and use the default widget style. I know that, obviously, I can configure root's widget style to match mine, but I do like the visual distinction. I just don't like it using my window decorations, because I have that nicely configured to match my widget style (and therefore clash with anything else). Is there any way to tell KWin to decorate root windows differently, or even run a separate window manager for root windows?

Fedora :: Opening Folder Triggers Appearance Editor?

OpenSUSE :: Display - Desktop Appearance And Theme Settings Not Working

Aug 14, 2011

I've been trying to get familiar with this over the past 24 hours or so. I assume I've been somewhat successful in what I'm attempting to do, as I can work my way around a bit now and use some terminal commands. However, there is this display problem I seem to be encountering with certain windows which is extremely putting off. When I click options like 'File' or 'Edit' in a window, this is what I get. Here are the screenshots below.

This is what I get when I click the 'Volume' button in the Panel at the bottom of the screen. I have tried changing the Desktop Appearance Settings, Theme Settings but nothing seems to work. Although this is not a performance issue, it is hampering my vision of the various available options, and I would like to resolve it at once.

Ubuntu :: Opening Certain Software Apps Causing 10.04 To Shutdown

Dec 28, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 64bit. I installed VirtualBox ( AMD64 bit version) from here [URL] however whenever I went to run it, it would cause the system to log out (not shut down, just drop out) and return to the login screen. I thought this could be an issue with that version of VirtualBox so I uninstalled and and then installed the version through the Software Centre, however unfortunately it was causing the same problem. I thought this may be a VirtualBox specific issue, however the same thing is now happening since I installed skype (again only when I run Skype).

I understand the description I am giving is very vague, and as such my first question would be : how am I able to produce an error report (of such) that would better suffice in describing the problem? Obviously, if anyone has come across this problem, do they know how to fix it? Sorry, one last thing, and I'm not sure if this matters at all, but I'm running three monitors over two video cards using the Nvidia driver with Xinerema. I only bring this up, because a while back I was running 10.04 with two monitors in Twinview and had no problems.

I am using a Radeon HD 4200 video card, but I am not using any special video drivers right now. /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist.

Fedora :: Preventing Apps From Opening On A 2nd Monitor?

Mar 15, 2011

I have a 2 monitor configuration, with the second monitor uses exclusively for mythtv. When I'm not actually watching tv or a muvie or watching visualizations with music playing, I actually use the machine for more productive uses. As the result the second monitor is typically not turned on, might have something to do the the fact it's a crt design, consumes a fair bit of power and does a good job keeping the media room overly warm.

The question is, does Fedora 11 or newer have a means to prevent applications from opening on the second monitor? I've checked the obvious places and nothing jumps out .

btw: According to the nvidia x server settings control panel the second monitor is set up as in twinview mode. This mode was chosen to allow the gpu to do most of the video decoding tasks using vdupau or something as I recall.

OpenSUSE :: Apps Opening On Secondary Monitor Not The Primary Screen

Feb 9, 2010

My problem is that all application open on the secondary screen and not the primary screen (monitor) as I expect. How to the OS/drivers that will ensure that application always open on the monitor situated on the right are welcome.

Ubuntu :: Thunderbird Messages Don't Display Correctly

Aug 28, 2010

I am having problems with Thunderbird in Ubuntu Lucid. I am not sure since when. It could have been since I upgraded to Lucid from Karmic. When I open Thunderbird, a message pops up that is supposed to ask me for the password. However, it is all blank inside and doesn't display the text. I found that after I click on ALT+TAB a few times, the message displays correctly. This is very strange. Is anyone else having (or had) the same problem? Does anyone have an idea for a fix?I tried uninstalling and then reinstalling but it didn't work out (I didn't "purge" though).

Ubuntu :: Getting NVIDIA Driver To Display Correctly

Mar 31, 2011

I have a problem with getting the picture to display properly on my HDTV. Using the regular driver (whichever that is) the picture displays flawlessly, but when I'm using the NVIDIA driver it displays really weird. URL...As you can see the top and the right of the picture is missing, and there is a large black bar to the left of it.Since it only does this with the NVIDIA driver I guess the driver is at fault here. The graphics card is a 8400GS and I'm running Xubuntu 10.10. The HDTV has a native resolution of 1366x768, and I've connected to it using HDMI.

I have tried messing around with overscan compensation in nvidia-settings, but it didn't help much.What can I do to fix this?

Ubuntu :: Some Apps Don't Like Wide Display?

Apr 29, 2010

I'm running 9.10 with a Radeon X300 video. Two displays, one is 1920x1200, the other is 1600x1200. I'm finding that some apps don't like to be too far to the right (anything past about 2600 x-resolution). If I move a window that far to the right, some of the controls are blank. A good example is OpenOffice. If I move an OO app too far to the right, the text in the main menu items will all be blank. All I see are the icons and the underscores for the keyboard shortcuts. There are other apps that do it, but OpenOffice is the most popular.

I tried re-configuring my displays, and it is always the one on the right. If I stack them top-to-bottom, I don't see the problem. If I reduce resolution, the problem diminishes, until I reduce the total x-resolution to below about 2600.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Display For Two Different Apps?

Dec 19, 2010

I require the use of two apps that appear to have similar problems and am wondering if they stem from the same problem. Both have been installed from .deb files and are not part of the official repos.The first is OpenCPN which, when installed, creates a menu entry. The the initial splash screen displays but after clicking OK, nothing appears at all.The second is Inform 7, which was working fine for a couple of days. Now the Game tab is empty. This is the tab that renders a version of the final game whilst working on it.Without knowing the two apps I realise it is difficult to get an understanding of what is wrong with them but it seems to be my machine that's at fault, not the apps as apparently they run fine on other people's machines.What checks can I do to get to the bottom of these problems?
