Ubuntu :: Getting Rid Of The Gnome Panel Selectively?

Mar 20, 2011

I have one profile on my Ubuntu machine that I want to eliminate the gnome panel from. When I use the gconf-editor I can change the panel key but it has no effect on my profile. If I set the key as the default it kills the panel on all my other profiles but not on the one I set it from. Anyone have any bright ideas on this?

I suppose I could just auto hide the one left offending panel but I truly wanted to get rid of it entirely. It is irritating having it pop up when I get near the edge of the screen constantly.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Panel In Xfce - How To Replace Xfce Panel With Gnome Panel

Jul 29, 2010

Is it possible to install Gnome-panel in Xfce? I'd like to completely replace xfce-panel with gnome-panel. It is possible the other way round so maybe this way too?


I tried xfce4-XfApplet-plugin but it doesn't work the way I would like to.

Ubuntu :: After Adding 'killall Gnome-panel' To The Startup Applications Does The Panel Fail To Load Altogether

Dec 4, 2010

Regarding the gnome-panel in Ubuntu (64 bit).... I discovered some time ago that I wasn't the only one who routinely (every login) had their gnome-panel appear butchered, for which Alt-F2 then 'killall gnome-panel' would easily fix.

Having become impatient with this over the past 8 months, I decided I would automate the process and so cofiguring the startup applications seemed like a perfectly logical choice to me. Turns out I was wrong. After adding 'killall gnome-panel' to the startup applications not only does the panel fail to load altogether now, but Alt-F2 doesn't even work.

I tried Ctl-Alt-F1 and working with the graphics-free mode thinking I could somehow navigate to the startup apps config file and edit it, but I don't know where it is or how to edit it without logging in as root and I certainly don't know of any 'root password'.

Desktop Environments :: Unity2D Panel Broken (mouse Over Reverts To Gnome-panel) / Sort It?

May 17, 2011

So I just updated my IdeaPad to Natty and played around with Unity. The performane was absolutely unbearable so I installed Unity2D from the software center. Now when I start the session everything seems to be fine at first. Whenever I move the mouse over the panel though it seems to switch to my old gnome-panel from the "Classic" session (with some missing icons). When I move the mouse over that panel again it switches back to the Unity panel style. What is going on? Can I fix this somehow? I will have to use the classic session until I get a working consistent behavior

Ubuntu :: Half Gnome-panel In Gnome 2.3 And High Resolution?

May 12, 2010

I've installed Ubuntu 10.4 and the gnome-panel appears half, as you can see in the attached picture, if I try resolutions over 1024x768.If I kill the gnome-panel and it restarts, or if I change its properties, it became OK, but in startup it appears like the image.I've tried other Gnome 2.3 based distributions and occurs the same issue. With Gnome 2.28 it doesn't occurs. Then ii seems a gnome 2.3 problem.

PD: My grafic card is a Matrox G550.

Fedora :: F14 Gnome-applet Dwell Click Crashes Gnome-panel / Solution For It?

Nov 12, 2010

Seeing this on two systems that went through F13-F14 upgrade.

version: gnome-applets-2.32.0-1.fc14.x86_64

symptom: via right click on a gnome panel, perform "add to panel" and choose Dwell Click.
Gnome panel bites the dust with SIGSEGV at this point, restarts, and then you've got dwell click on the panel.

Anyone else seeing this, and better yet, have a solution?

Ubuntu :: Gnome Panel - Where Is The "panel-shadow.png" File Located?

Aug 3, 2011

I am trying to get rid of the gnome panel shadow in ubuntu 11.04(classic, not using unity). I know that I can get rid of it using compiz but I do not want to use that. I suppose my question would be, where is the "panel-shadow.png" file located that I can edit and make transparent? I found it before but cannot for the life of me now.

Fedora :: Gnome 3 Fallback - Gnome-panel - Bug?

May 31, 2011


I've managed to ALT-RIGHT-click-add some launchers to the top gnome-panel. When i now click on a launcher the gnome-panel crashes(?) and reappeares, but the program starts without problems. If i do this two times in a row (1 sec diff or so) the gnome-crash screen appears and i've got to log out although all the programs are still running without any problems.

dmesg shows this: [14460.034820] gnome-panel[4428]: segfault at 18 ip 0000003810fc05df sp 00007fffcaae4c30 error 4 in libgtk-3.so.0.0.10[3810e00000+3fb000]

Ubuntu :: Gnome-panel Is At 100% And Completely Unusable Rendering Gnome Unusable

Nov 19, 2010

I recently bought a second monitor and I had this set up perfectly fine with two panels on my primary display and one on my secondary. I've now gone away for the weekend (leaving the monitor) and I went to turn on my laptop and it didn't work.

When I login to a gnome session (or indeed a failsafe gnome session) I just got two horizontal white bars (where the panels would be). I switch to a terminal, login and run top and see that gnome-panel is on 100%. Running 'killall gnome-panel' does nothing (tried a few times).

I've had to install xfce4 just to type this message. Is there any way I can 'reset' gnome-panel or any other fix? Or even a workaround would be nice. I'm on 9.10 by the way. I am going to upgrade at some point but its not really an option yet.

Hardware :: Selectively Disable The USB Ports?

Jan 3, 2009

I am running Fedora 10 and Win XP SP2 on an Intel PIII machine and couple of weeks ago there was a short on the motherboard. In the result 1 out of 4 USB ports died, 2 show over current change ad 1 seems to work properly. In XP I could disable a "USB adapter" in Device Manager, which removed 3 usb's from the system, but the remaining one, equipped with the hub, works fine. Is there a way to do something like that in Fedora?

Here is the USB section from my lspci -vv:

00:04.2 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82xxxxx UHCI USB 1.1 Controller (rev 11) (prog-if 00 [UHCI])
Subsystem: First International Computer, Inc. VA-502 Mainboard

Networking :: Selectively Allow Users To Connect?

Mar 16, 2011

While using school internet, occasionally I cannot connect to their wireless at all. I know it is definitely the school's doing, under both Windows and Linux, my computer is denied connection for about 30 minutes, then it suddenly works. I always have the same address, but setting a static address does not allow me connection either. Everyone else has no problem connecting, so I am pretty sure the school denied my computer connection.

How can I workaround this? Changing my card's MAC address does not fix the problem. Is there another way to discriminate users?

Software :: Selectively Check In Multiple Files Using SVN?

Dec 24, 2009

I have a really elaborate website project and I'd like to check in all the code to an SVN repository WITHOUT checking in all the jpg, pdf, sql, .mobi files, etc. I have subclipse installed on my local machine as part of Eclipse, but downloading the entire site and doing it file-by-file would take a very long time.

1) check in certain file types in a directory (e.g, /home/foo/public_html) while excluding certain file types (e.g., *.jpg, *.pdf, etc.) and subdirectories (e.g. exclude home/foo/public_html/images) in that directory.

2) I need to specify that this initial checking of my entire project goes into the /trunk folder in my SVN repository -- and not the root, not 'branch' subdir, etc. Also, I need the directory structure of my files to be preserved. that is to say i don't want /includes/conf/config.php to be at the root of my trunk folder in my repository.

3) I need to specify a comment that is applied to all of the files I'm checking in. E.g., "this is the initial checkin dated 12/24/2009, happy holidays!"

Ubuntu :: Gnome Panel Not Responding?

May 23, 2010

I have Ubuntu with a Gnome GUI. When I tried to add a third panel to the left side, it didn't respond for a moment then two panels appeared on that side and all the panels froze. Whenever I log out, shut down or restart, it tells me that Panel is not responding and does not give me the option of closing it. The whole left side of the top and bottom panels are blank now. I can't use the menus or my quick launch icons. When I right click on any of the panels nothing comes up. My other user account and my root profile work fine, (but use different themes), and I can use my account with KDE or XFCE.

Ubuntu :: Odd Gnome Panel Reactions?

Oct 11, 2010

Fresh install of 10.10 and when I increase the size of the top panel to 30 pixels it changes colors. So I ignored it and installed Faenza icons and used the radiance them, yet it persists and it also won't allow full transparency. I saw a very intense work around involved finding certain files, but that seemed unneeded is there another way.

Ubuntu :: Restore Gnome Panel

Oct 15, 2010

The other day I kind of messed up my panel and accidentally removed the exit icon from the upper right corner (in the panel). So I tried to restore the panel using this command:


It did the trick and restored the panels, however instead of saying my user name, it said root (again the upper right corner, in the panel). I realized this might be because I ran the command with sudo but if I didn't it would not succeed. AND when I reboot, it returns to its' messed up state.

I am running Ubuntu 10.10

OpenSUSE Network :: Disable A WiFi Internface Selectively?

Jun 22, 2010

I have a Sony Vaio with built-in WiFi. I deemed the built-in WiFi to be flaky, so I installed a WiFi PC Card.bOpenSUSE 11.2 stock GNOME install out of the box, is there a way to disable just the flaky WiFi interface with Network Manager? It seems I can disable all WiFi or enable all WiFi but not individual interfaces selectively. If I connect to my router, the flaky interface wants to act as the dominant interface and makes my connection slow and unreliable.

I hate to make comparisons with Windows, but it's very obvious how to do it there. Is this something I can do with Network Manager or in GNOME? Or is this something deeper, changing configuration files with a text editor or recompiling kernel?
