Ubuntu :: Graphics 10.10 - Wireless Icon At The Top - Dropdown Menu Is Displayed At A 45 Degree Angle
Mar 31, 2011
I have a Hp Touchsmart Tx2 with AMD processor and ATi graphics. I installed Ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit) last night for the second time, the first time i had this problem so i thought maybe another download and another install would help, and i have dual boot setup with windows vista on the other partition. So the install went fine but when i am at the home screen in Ubuntu and i click something like the wireless icon at the top, or the time at the top, or any of those icons the dropdown menu is displayed at a 45 degree angle or something.
Also the drop down menus in firefox will do it too, i'm sure others will as well. It is really wierd and i already installed the flxgr Ati driver (i think thats what its called) via the additional drivers application. Also when i open the terminal it is displayed at this same angle. The outline is perfect put the content inside is skewed. Also I should mention overall its just slow and laggy and the wifi cuts in and out. I took some pictures with my camera cause when i took a screen shot the menu for that was slanted and i couldn't see what the options were.
I'm trying to add .desktop file for my application but I'm stuck with very strange problem.I created 48x48 icon for my program called etmmanager.png.I created .desktop file according to specifications:
Code: [Desktop Entry] X-SuSE-translate=true Categories=Application;Utility;X-SuSE-TimeUtility; Comment=ETM Manager for time logging Exec=etmmanager code....
My problem is that icon is not working in menu! I can find my program in Utilities->Time->ETM Manager and this is what I wanted, but there is no icon for the program.
It starts working if I specify absolute path in etmmanager.desktop file like Code: Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/etmmanager.png About my system - Opensuse 11.1 KDE 4.2
It took me a while and maybe someone else already know this, but I recently added RGBA to give me more transparency. But when I did this the shadows on the dropdown menus on the panel and in nautilus were not shadowed.
To correct this in Compizconfig Settings Manager: Turn on Window Decoration is you haven't already. Copy/Paste this line in the Shadow Windows info box:
That should be enough to get your drop shadows back on the drop down menu items. worked for me. Even works on the menus in Chromium even if the GTK themes window border is off, but is still won't shadow the window if GTK window borders are turned off.
My Ubuntu goes to sleep after 5 minutes. When I wake it up, and enter Firefox, and try to type in an address, it does not bring the dropdown menu with the history of the URLs that begin with the string I just typed. Is there anyway to get it to stop forgetting the history after Ubuntu comes back from sleep?
I have been having issues with the Firefox browser for the past few months. Firefox version: 3.6.11 Ubuntu x86_64 OS: Ubuntu 10.04 x86_64 Add ons: Flash block, Ad Block+, image block Occasionally on booting up and starting Firefox, the top menu bar, the location bar drop down do not work. Clicking them has no effect. Though I can enter a URL in the location bar, the drop down that gives recently browsed sites is unavailable. Using the keyboard shortcuts for these doesn't work too. So essentially all my browsing history, bookmarks, saved passwords are not accessible.
Restarting the browser/system doesn't . Deleting the whole profile folder restores the functionality, though it takes me back to a blank slate as far as my personalisation and browsing history is concerned and everything needs to be rebuilt. Restoring the profile folder causes the issue to reappear. So it appears to have something to do with the profile stored. Would like to look if any one has has similar issues but can't get a hang of how to best describe this or how others would have described it. I am sure you understand how bad it feels when all the history, bookmarks, passwords etc are in a way lost when this happens. Also how and where to post this or search if already similar bug is posted with Ubuntu and Firefox.
P.S: Is there a way to separate the personal info like history, passwords and bookmarks from the profile somehow?
Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid), GNOME 2.30.2. After some time of correct operation, my dropdown menu from "Places" in the GNOME Panel has gone wrong.
If I click Places and then click on any of the dropdown shown, Home Folder, Desktop, Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos, Downloads, before the horizontal line separator, Banshee launches. Those after the separator, Computer, Floppy and my Hard Drives, launch correctly.
I have tried restoring the Panel to its original setting with no luck.
I created a custom launcher for 2 wine programs on my desktop and dragged them to my launcher to add them. They were both using the default cup of wine icon.The first one kept this icon, the second one changed to the default custom launcher icon for gnome. I have since changed them to the games real icons but they aren't changing in the launcher even after removing and re-adding it to the launcher.So 2 things are happening here, it seems the launcher is unable to use the same icon multiple times, and the launcher is "remembering" the icon's somewhere separatly from what the custom launcher is saying the icon should be.
I would like to use the Adobe Garamond Pro in my text doccument in open office writer. I got a text document where from a friend where it is used so I know that it can. But when I want to edit I cant find it in the fonts dropdown menu.
I put my own icon file into /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/mimetypes/text-x-extension-eml.png and run cmd gtk-upgrade-icon-cache. The eml files on Desktop will display as I want on SLED10+SP2/SP3. But failed on SLED11, it just looks like a plain text file !
Is it OS limitation or what I am doing wrong on SLED11 ?
I am having a problem with the Cairo-Dock wifi applet. I can activate the applet and configure it, but I can't get it to display an icon. [URL]. I've tried everything on the above page (I think), no go. How to proceed with this?
I lost the pictures and music icons on the places menu. When I browse the folders from nautilus I see the icons, but when I click on the places menu I see the regular folder icon and not the special pictures icon or music icon
I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed on a laptop of mine, and also a desktop. On this laptop, it's a clean install and I'm having a weird issue with the panel on the top of thescreen.ometimes when I start up the computer and login, I get two noticeable quirks. Instead of having the wireless icon in the tray next to the volume, I have two volume controls next to each other.The one icon, that takes place of the wireless icon, is not functional.The other volume icon functions as normal.
The other quirk is that my power button, used for choosing to logout, shutdown,etc,isappears. Instead, it shows two of my username next to each other (one is the legitimate one that lets you set your away status and such). And in place of the power button, is another username menu, but it is cut off by the edge of the screen and doesn't function.Has anybody had this problem before? Is there some kind of package I can update or reinstall to try fixing this? Sometimes the power button will be fine, but the volume icon will still double up.
Ive had a few freeze ups on this system but the last time it affected the top panel.The wireless icon has disappeared to be replaced by an extra bluetooth icon.screenshot attached.Is there any kind of clean up utility (like tune up utilities in win)Also, any kind of log so I can trace this freeze up Iḿ getting.Ive only just got this laptop so dont know if it did it before although prev owner never mentioned it.
Kwallet is off. Then I install a wireless device under WPA. Wired icon starts to change to wireless icon, but does not and goes back to wired icon. Hovering pointer over wired icon shows wired device installed as well as wireless device. How do I keep the wireless icon in place after installing WPA to wireless device?
i'm not able to play music at all. videos videos seem to crash my browser and using either rhythmbox or banshee they crash too.i ran rhythmbox by typing sudo rhythmbox and tried to play a file and it displayed a pop-up window saying that my autioaudiosink element is missing and the terminal displayed this:
code: (rhythmbox:8415): rhythmbox-warning **: unable to grab media player keys: could not get owner of name 'org.gnome.settingsdaemon': no such name warning: unhandled message: interface=org.freedesktop.dbus.introspectable, path=/, member=introspect
I have a fresh install of Debian 5.04 Stable. It detects my wireless card with a RT61 chipset and gives me the option to select a wireless network through the network-manager icon in the upper panel, yet no wireless networks are displayed. So, how do I fix this and get the ability to connect to my network? I have tried connecting manually but it refuses to connect. No errors, it just does nothing and reverts to roaming mode.
I believe the exact model of my card is an Edimax EW 7128G.
A couple of weeks ago my laptop's wifi started acting up, to the point that it didn't function. When I click the nwManager icon to being up a list of available networks, it is empty. If I try to create a new network, with the credentials of my modem, it appears to work, and asks for the password. After I enter the password, it seems to work for about 30 seconds (much longer than normal) but then it prompts me again for the password. This cycle continues indefinitely.
I'm running Karmic on a Dell i1525. how to find out what wireless card I have.
how to get the sine of an angle. it just says that the sine of angle A is opposite/hypotenuse. that's all find and dandy if you have a triangle, but how do you get the sine of an Angle without that information? Calculators do this. pop in Sin(35) and you'll get the sine of angle 35. how does that work? I've attempted to look up the Function definition in the standard C library, but all I can find is the function prototype in the header - where the heck is the function definition?
3 computers in the house run various windows based programs and everything is fine with them connecting to the internet as far as putting in the security password to log in and get online.My old back up computer that I use in the basement that has Ubuntu 9.10 was working fine with the secured network situation up until today.I booted up the computer this morning and it automatically connected as it typically does and I was reading some email and then the computer froze, which on rare occasions it does.
Upon reboot I got a window that asked for the password for the Network Manager Applet which I supplied and then it asked for the password for the secured internet connection which I supplied.It would not connect. After numerous tries of disabling the wireless and enabling the wireless and entering the Network Manager Applet password and the secured internet password I still get no connection.
I notice that when it is trying to connect, the window comes up on the screen that shows that there is reception from the modem, but there is also a little "lock" icon like I'm locked out of the connection.I finally found a way to get rid of the Network Manager Applet password problem but that still didn't alleviate the connection problem.
I'm trying to play around with the orientation of my monitors (portrait vs landscape), and it's now obvious to me that they are best viewed from a high angle when placed on their stands normally. As I change their orientation, it would be nice if I could manipulate what angle they are best viewed at. I doubt this is adjustable, but I thought I would come on here an ask since there are a myriad of configurations that I don't understand.
I use the Elementary GTK theme, and I'd like to replace the "E" at the upper-left hand with my custom Ubuntu logo. However, when I extract the icon to the proper directory, and replace all files, nothing happens. I delete the cache, kill and restore the panel via Terminal, and rebuild the cache, to no avail.
I know this has been posted before, but non of the former posts helped me. What I would like to figure out is how to change the small Ubuntu logo next to the Applications, Places, System widget on the panel. I'm not sure if this is part of a theme or if it's a system file. Either way; I would love some help on this, as this will bring me one step closer to: world domination / creating a theme, how different are they really?
I installed Ubuntu Net book edition and was wondering and I did a little searching with no results. How do I remove the bar with icons on the left side of the screen? Is there a way to put icons on the desktop
