Ubuntu :: Gnomenu Reporting OAFIID:GNOME_GnoMenu When Adding To Panel?

May 2, 2011

I've done a quick google search and didn't really find anything that I understood. I DID find a reference to the bug on launchpad, but supposedly it was fixed as of version 2.1 and I'm running the latest version I could find which I believe is 2.9 so I'm a bit lost.

Any help would be great, if you need more info, just tell me how to get it and i shall do so as I really am missing gnomenu. If it makes any difference, I'm on ubuntu 11.04 64bit running in classic mode

Ubuntu :: OAFIID Gnone Panel Crashes?

Jan 16, 2011

OAFIID Gnone panel crashesSince I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10, my computer spends 5+ minutes starting up. Of that, 2 minutes or so are spent getting to log-in, which is longer than Ubuntu 10.04 took. After I log-in, it takes up to 5 minutes just to load up.I am not entirely sure what is causing this. Almost every time I start up, all the panel applets crash (e.g. "The panel encountered a problem while loadingOAFIID:GNOME_ShowDesktopApplet").

The panels that reliably fail to load are: the clock, indicator applet, indicator applet session, and fast_user_switch, though the latter is not an applet I have added to the panel.Deleting and reloading the applets, changing their location etc. does not change the problem.I know this problem has been much commented on in the forums. I have tried all the following solutions:

-- Resizing the panel
--sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
sudo aptitude reinstall gnome-applets

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'.

Ubuntu :: Adding Applets To GDM Panel?

Feb 23, 2011

so I'm using Xubuntu 10.04.2, and I would like to add the network manager to the GDM Panel.

I know it must be possible somehow, since the Gnome version lacks the battery monitor, and the Xfce version has it present. I'm just not quite sure how to get it done.

I do not have Gnome installed, I have only XFCE, LXDE, and Openbox.

Ubuntu :: Unity 0.2.46 - Adding Launchers To Panel

Apr 21, 2011

I'm currently using Unity 0.2.46 on Ubuntu 10.10. Installed from a ppa. The only way I have found to add an application launcher to the panel is to actually launch the app, then right click it's icon on the panel and click "Keep in Launcher". This is great but I've noticed at least one of my applications (Mumble) doesn't give me that option. Is there an alternative method? (see screenshot for example)

Ubuntu :: New Panel Doesn't Shows Up Immediately Upon Its Adding

May 14, 2010

I'm running an up-to-date Lucid Lynx but now getting irritated by a bug or problem (I'm not sure whether it's a bug) in Gnome-panels. The problem is whenever I add a new panel in Gnome Desktop, the new panel doesn't appears on screen and needs to be re-logon to appear. It seems a known issue when I checked for the same at Launchpad, but it existed in betas.

I found this trouble since I have made a clean install of Lucid but thought it'll be fixed in any of the updates, but it didn't solved even after the most recent update I made this morning. I wanted to report this bug but didn't knew how to file bug for gnome-panels as there's no option like 'Report a problem' for gnome panels.

Ubuntu :: Adding Indicators To Unity's Top/Application Panel?

May 1, 2011

I like Unity, and I appreciate Canonical's work in making the desktop cleaner-looking and more intuitive.I think that being able to customize the top/application(?) panel would be very powerful. By this, I mean both adding and removing indicators.I guess the developers are aware of this, and it's easier said than done. I don't know.Personally, I miss the weather and CPU temperature applets of the old Gnome layout.I tried to apply the best guide I've found to modifying the top panel, to no avail.

After I followed the instructions for the addition of three different indicators (weather, cpu frequency and CPU and RAM % usage), my top panel remained the same.I don't know whether the indicators should show up right away or only upon restart. I did restart, though.For both the weather and CPU frequency indicators, the terminal said:Failed to fetch gzip:/var/lib/apt/lists/partial/fr.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_main_sour ce_Sources Hash Sum mismatchI don't know how to get around this

Ubuntu :: Adding The Panel - Gnome Crashed And Computer Won't Boot Correctly

Dec 8, 2010

I have a desktop computer running Linux Mint 9 with the Gnome desktop (not sure what version -- though by default Mint 9 comes with Gnome 2.30). Last night I tried adding a panel to the desktop by right-clicking on the existing bottom panel and selecting "New Panel". Please note that I've already got another panel at the top of the desktop on the left side on autohide and no expand.

When I added another panel, it placed a normal panel on the right side of the screen without any problems. When I right-clicked on the new right-side panel and selected "Properties", I changed the orientation to "top" (where there was already a panel, if you remember). After that moment, it seemed like the entire desktop environment crashed. Everything was completely unresponsive -- the only thing moving on the screen was the mouse. I couldn't do anything with the gui, not even shut the computer down.

Since the gui shutdown wasn't working, I switched to a different tty screen, logged in, and ran a shutdown command with the option to reboot. The computer shut down fine, and when it woke back up, the same problem was still there: Nothing loaded on the screen except for the background image and the mouse, which was still able to move but nothing else. I have the computer set up to automatically log me in, so I know it's not crashing before the user prefs are being loaded...

After restarting it again and getting the same result, I switched to a different tty screen, logged in, and tried messing around with stuff to no avail. I did notice, however, that the computer was becoming evermore sluggish, and something printed on the screen stating that a program had been terminated because of "not enough memory". It seemed like some process was consuming WAY too much RAM by itself or a program was accidentally forkbombing the computer. ...All because I added a panel...?

OpenSUSE :: Adding Submenu With Correct Icon To KDE 4.4.4 Panel In 11.3?

Dec 27, 2010

I'm a KDE3 user who just upgraded to 11.3/KDE4 and is still trying to learn the new way of doing things, so please bear with me if I've overlooked something obvious. I've managed to mostly get my desktop the way I want it, except for one problem: I want to add a submenu to the panel, with an appropriate icon.

According to Bug 189583 - Ability to add submenu "like editors" to kicker panel from classic menu this capability was added over a year ago, so I should be able to just right-click on any submenu and the option to add the submenu to the panel or desktop should pop up. Except for me, it doesn't. Right-clicking on a submenu just selects the first item in the submenu instead of bringing up the context menu. I've tried both the classic and kickoff menus, and the same thing happens.

The bug report does mention it is also possible to add a submenu to the panel from Dolphin by going to applications:/ and dragging the folder to the panel. This does add the submenu, but the icon displayed on the panel is the question mark icon, and there seems to be no way to change it. Besides being ugly, I need different icons to tell different submenus apart.

Server :: Df Reporting 100% But Du Reporting 20%?

Apr 15, 2011

Today morning I logged on to one of our servers (through ssh -X) to perform a routine maintenance. When I tried to open a GUI application, it failed to connect to the X server of the workstation. Eventually I ended up issuing the command


df -h /

and shockingly it showed that / is 100% used. I checked / using


du --max-depth=1 -xh /

to check the sizes of the individual directories, which showed that only about 18% of the / is used and that confused me badly. There was no quick solutions when I googled around; but luckily I found the following link which nicely explained the issue I had:


All I did was found out the services responsible for those unreleased files (using lsof +L1) and restarted them. That is it. Now df reports only 18% of the disk is used and all my X things started working again, thanks to Walker.

Fedora :: How To Install GnoMenu

Jul 18, 2010

This guide will show you how to install GnoMenu 2.9 on Fedora 12/13, & how to install custom themes for GnoMenu. I will cover the install feature that is built into the software, & the manual install procedure. Because personally I have NEVER been able to get the built-in install feature to work. If it works for you, Great! If not, you can still install manually.

Download & Install GnoMenu 2.9

1.) Visit the Official GnoMenu site and download the latest version of the program. (2.9 at time of writing)

1a.) https://launchpad.net/gnomenu. (notice: This is also a secure site)

1b.) DO NOT download and install this program from any unofficial source.

2.) Open the archive you just downloaded. (gnomenu-2.9.tar.gz)

2a.) Copy the entire folder (gnomenu) from inside the archive, to your /tmp folder.

3.) Open a terminal and run the following commands.


3a.) This is the actual install process. It should not take very long at all.

4.) After the installation is finished, browse to your /tmp folder and delete the /gnomenu folder. It is no longer needed.

5.) Right-click your panel and select 'add to panel' from the context menu.

5a.) In the "Add to Panel" window select GnoMenu and click the 'Add' button. (as shown)

GnoMenu 2.9 is now installed. So first of all, you should remove the standard 'Menu Bar' from your panel and move the GnoMenu button to the far left of your panel (kinda like the windows start button). You can of course place the button anywhere on the panel. The choice is yours.

Now, lets right-click the GnoMenu button and select 'Properties'. The dialog box that opens lets you choose & install various theme elements, as well as setup all other options and features... Lets take a quick look at the tabs on the Properties dialog before moving on to the manual theme installation procedure.

The 'Themes' Tab.

This tab allows you to select the themes you want to use, & install new themes. The 'themes' are divided into four categories: Menu, Button, Sounds, and Icons. To install a new theme, press the Install button for the type of theme you are installing and select the theme archive you have downloaded. You DO NOT extract the theme files from the archive. I cannot get this method to work so I have included a manual install guide at the bottom of this thread.

The Preferences Tab.

This tab contains a LOT of various settings! You will just have to play around with them and find the setup that works best for you and the theme that your currently using. With some menu themes I like to increase my Icon Size, or use my system icons instead of the theme icons. These options are all personal preference.

The Commands Tab.

This tab allows you to set custom commands for all of the various buttons on the Menu's. Such as Shutdown, Restart, Lock Screen, Help, Search, ect., I suggest leaving these values alone unless you need to change one of them for some specific reason...

GnoMenu 2.9 is now installed and configured. Lets move on to installing a custom theme...

Manual Installation for Custom Themes.

If your built-in install feature works as well as mine does, then you will have to manually install all of the themes that you download. In order to do that you must copy files into a directory that needs Root access!! We could Log in as Root, but this is not very safe, and it would be very inconvenient. So we are going to make a Launcher that will open a new instance of Nautilus with Root permissions. When you close that instance of Nautilus the Root permissions will no longer be active. So this makes it easy to access directories that need Root permissions, & it does not create a security issue...

1.) Download a custom GnoMenu theme...

1b.)Download: 'Carbon' Menu Theme (carbon.tar.gz) - I uploaded this file - Find more @ gnome-look.org

2.) Create a new Launcher on your Desktop.
2a.) In the 'Type' box select 'Application in Terminal'.
2b.) In the 'Name' box type 'Browse Files as Root'. (or anything you want)
2c.) In the 'Command' box type: sudo 'nautilus'
2d.) Leave the 'Comments' box empty... and click 'OK'

3.) Extract the 'Carbon' folder from the archive you just downloaded. (carbon.tar.gz) unto your Desktop

3a.) Dbl-Click on your new Launcher and open Nautilus with Root permissions. (You may or may not be prompter to enter a password. Depending on how you have SUDO configured on your machine)

3b.) Inside Nautilus copy the entire 'Carbon' folder from your Desktop and paste it into the following location:

Your Custom Theme has now been installed and you can set it to be used by entering the GnoMenu properties and selecting it on the 'Theme Tab'. You can download hundereds of different Menu, Button, Icon, and Sound themes for GnoMenu by visiting the GnoMenu Theme Area at: www.GNOME-LOOK.org

NOTICE: each type of theme has it's own folder that it has to be installed into, or it will not work at all. Here is a list of the correct directories..
