I have been running ubuntu 10.10 on a old laptop for a while but have started to get tired of the high resource usage. I installed xfce via xubuntu-desktop package and all worked well but the menu. It is the Xfce menu not the customized xubuntu panel and i really dont much like it.
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'.
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
In previous releases of Ubuntu it was possible to replace the gnome panel (with AWN for example) by going into gconf-editor and replacing gnome-panel with the panel of my choice (see screen)Unfortunately this doesn't seem to have an affect on Ubuntu Classic desktop.how to do it with Natty (replace gnome-panel with AWN)?
I was ******* around with wine, and when i tried to run a certain game.... The xfce panel vanished! It's simply gone! Rebooting didn't help.... And when i tried running it from a terminal i got this:Quote:
/usr/share/themes/Murrine-Sky/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:45: Murrine configuration option "scrollbar_color" is no longer supported and will be ignored. /usr/share/themes/Murrine-Sky/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:51: Murrine configuration option "hilight_ratio" will be
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.
Items in my xfce panel are disappearing. First it was the networkmanager launcher which disappeared in xfce but still appeared when I used GNOME, then it disappeared in GNOME. My "x updates are available" icon and volume control icons are also gone, and just now my entire "applications" drop down menu disappeared. I frequently use xmonad so I know all the /bin/ commands for critical programs, but this is really annoying. Also, my desktop keeps changing back to a certain image without me changing it. If I was on windows I would think I had a virus. Maybe I dowlnoaded some bad games I was trying to play in wine? xubuntu 9.10, not updated for a little while since the icon disappeared, Thinkpad T61...
I have just installed Squeeze and my xfce works, but I don't get a panel, unless I start it manually withxfce4-panel &As this worked,ded it to the automatically started applications. I logged-out and then back in but no panel. I did a ps -ef | grep -i paneland the panel doesn't appear to be running.
I've installed the Xfce spin of Fedora 14 (64). The Panel (or main task bar) has several icons by default and as most people. I like to add/remove and move the different items and shortcuts. I can add and remove, however moving items I cannot. When I right-click and select 'Move', the Panel turns gray, in fact it's completely grayed out, like locked. For info, it was absolutely fine in F13.
I was trying to choose a set of icons in xfce's "Appearance" dialogue and then suddenly the panel disappeared and didn't show up even after rebooting the machine (I mean logging out and restarting). What should I do?
I recently switched from Gnome2 to the Xfce desktop (Xubuntu). I asked the following question in the Xfce forums yesterday and received no response as of yet.Is there a way I can easily move a directory of webpage links from the desktop to the top panel. I have tried using a launcher without any success and dragging it to the panel isn't working for me either.I have searched the manual, with no insights found about this.[URL]
I just completed a fresh install of the weekly jessie build (downloaded today). All I've done is install updates, add my username to sudoer list, and reboot. When I did, the xfce panel was not there. When I right clicked, Apps, Panel, it opened with an error that I cannot make changes unless I save my session and that it's in kiosk mode. After a logoff or reboot, it's still not there. I saw one thread asked for the output of /.xsession-errors, which I've done, and it doesn't look good... I'm just not sure how to fix:
Code: Select allopenConnection: connect: No such file or directory cannot connect to brltty at :0 /usr/bin/x-session-manager: X server already running on display :0 xfce4-session-Message: ssh-agent is already running; starting gpg-agent without ssh support
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.
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: segfault at 18 ip 0000003810fc05df sp 00007fffcaae4c30 error 4 in libgtk-3.so.0.0.10[3810e00000+3fb000]
I installed the xfce4-quicklauncher plugin from a tar file in Slackware 13.37. It is showing as installed in gslapt, but it is not showing in the xfce panel's "Add New Items" menu. (see attached images) I tried rebooting and a few google searches. What must I do to get the xfce4-quicklauncher plug-in to appear in the xfce panel's "add New Items" menu?
I have tried 2 methods to add to the gnome panel, but it isn't working for the banshee music player.If I drag/drop on there it doens't take.If I try to right click and add to panel and select it from the menu it also does not show up.
How would I go about making my top Panel transparent? I know how to do the basic variation, but things like the Clock, Notification Area, and Gnome menu aren't.How would I make my panel transparent, almost like Mac OS X's?
