Ubuntu :: Window Borders Keep Disappearing - Open Compiz Icon To Reload Window Manager?

Apr 23, 2010

I recently upgraded the motherboard/processor on my computer (as in quadrupled the processor and octupled the ram). The new board has a built in GPU (intel) and from searching the forums, I think this is part of the problem. Every time I boot up the computer, I need to open the Compiz icon and use it to reload the window manager before I see any title bars, borders, etc. 've tried the .bashrc hack (metacity --replace), but that doesn't do anything. In fact, whenever I open the terminal, I need to have two tabs open in order to use it, and when I close it all the borders go away again (even when I haven't done anything). Also, the onboard sound card (intel) doesn't work, but that's another task (I at least have a compatible card for that).

Ubuntu :: Click On The File System Icon In The Launcher To Open A Nautilus Window The Window Opens, But Is Unresponsive?

Aug 8, 2011

My system boots, I login and am brought to my desktop. I click on the file system icon in the launcher to open a Nautilus window. The window opens, but is unresponsive (i.e., I can't move it, clicking on the icons does nothing, etc.). If I press the super key to get the dash and the press escape, the window becomes responsive again, just like normal.

If I open a folder in the window, the window becomes halfway unresponsive in that I can't move the window, but I can select more folders and toolbar icons. The top menu no longer appears at this point, and I can't access any of the system icons on the top right of the screen. Alt-F4 closes the window even if the close button doesn't work.As another example, suppose I open a Nautilus window and then a Chromium window. Both are immediately unresponsive. If I super-esc again, I can move the Chromium window around, and it seems to work normally. I can click on the Nautilus window, but it always stays greyed out. Even if I'm clicking on things in it, the Chromium window always has focus.

I had a similar experience to this with VLC and Chromium. After clicking around enough I eventually got it to the point where VLC apparently always had focus, but I couldn't access any of VLC's controls. Double clicking anywhere on the screen fullscreened the video, and that's all I could really do. Not even escape worked to bring it back.I can usually press super to get the dash and Alt-F2 to get a command prompt. Also Alt-Shift-T seems to usually work to bring up a working Terminal (at least one that accepts commands, even if I can't move the window).Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this? The behavior is highly unpredictable and extremely frustrating. I should note that key commands don't always work, even though they seem to in my examples. So I don't think it's just a mouse issue.

Ubuntu :: Open A Window In A Particular Workspace?

May 9, 2010

I want to run Evolution at starup, but want to place it out of the way on the opposite side of the Compiz cube. In KDE, you can run a command like this:


kstart --desktop 3 evolution

Is there an equivalent for GNOME/Compiz? I would preferably like to avoid using anything like Devilspie.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get VLC Player To Open Only One Window?

May 14, 2010

To get to the point, when viewing a video in fullscreen, I notice that the initial VLC window remains open under the fullscreen video output. Sometimes the initial video window is under the fullscreen output causes a bit of screen tearing. How do I enable VLC that when in fullscreen mode, only it opens, to be together with the main interface instead of two windows running? Im not sure that im making sense but this does not happen in Windows. I want a similar function here in Ubuntu.

I keep getting the error: No protocol specified nam: couldn't connect to display ":0.0". This worked fine a year ago and nothing has changed. I am running it remotely from my school network just like I did then. I am also using a bash shell.

Ubuntu :: URL's In Evolution Open New Empty Firefox Window?

May 2, 2011

I have a weird issue about url-handling: When I have an url in any application, and click it, firefox opens up in a NEW window, but does NOT open the url, instead the ubuntu-startpage...

This is totally against my settings: firefox is the default browser, and is set to open url's in a new tab. So, I have checked stuff in about:config, and even tried making an entire new profile. Checked evolutions settings, but too bad, nothing there.

General :: How To Open Emacs In Its Own Window

Aug 20, 2010

I am doing some project work and for that using the server at college with ssh connection. Every time I try to open emacs on the terminal after connecting, it opens emacs in the terminal itself i.e. not its own window. On my laptop on which ubuntu is installed, emacs always opens up in its own window an thats how I am used to it. There are several problems when it opens in the terminal like when I try to use commands such as M-V, actually terminal's view menu opens up, its very frustrating. Also I am pretty sure that the college server runs on red hat and has X installed on it. So what do I need to do to get my emacs window back.

General :: Ubuntu - Bring An Open Window To The Current Desktop?

Aug 2, 2010

Let's say I have a program open on another virtual desktop. Is there a way I can bring that program to the current desktop through a script? The following command is the closest I can get:

wmctrl -a program This will switch to the desktop where the program is open and make it the foremost window. However, instead of going to the desktop where the program is, I want to bring the program to the current desktop. There is also this command:

wmctrl -R program The documentation says that this will do what I want, but it just does the same thing as the former command.

Ubuntu :: Gwibber Window Doesn't Open But Works On Background?

Apr 22, 2010

I'm having a issue with gwibber: the window doesn't open, but I can tell it's working because I can tweet via Me menu. Also, the "microblogging" arrow/checkbox is active in the messaging-menu.

The window opens without problems in my dad's session, so I guess that if I delete some config file in my /home it will get fixed. where are the gwibber config files? I couldn't find them =/

This is my terminal output when executing gwibber:

daniel@solid:~$ gwibber
** (gwibber:3967): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'WnckWindowState' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags'

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 :: Setup A Unique Icon For Each USB Drive AND Have Their Window Pop Open?

Nov 22, 2010

I have a pencil case I carry with a USB hub and 9 USB sticks in it. I like their unique icons and their root windows to pop up upon insertion. If this is answered elsewhere, I looked several times in several ways on google and these forums.

I tried this:
The autorun.inf file on the USB root written this way:
Action=Start Blue512MB

Then put the BlueFlashIcon.ico icon image in a folder titled BlueFlashIcon In Ubuntu (Mav) I get the new personal icon image for that USB stick appearing on the desktop but the USB root window won't pop open automatically when the stick is inserted. I have to dig to the desktop, find it and click it or go into Places on the menu. If when I put nothing special on the flash, no autorun.inf, no icon image, then the window for the USB pops open upon insertion, which I like, but only get the generic icon that looks the same as all 9 external drives. The labels are unique but icons offer faster recognition over reading labels, when they are needed, much nicer to use~

Ideas? Do I have to use .svg icons or another kind of text file? How do I set up a unique icon for each USB drive AND have the window pop up upon insertion?
