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'.

Ubuntu :: Items In Xfce Panel Are Disappearing

Apr 1, 2010

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...

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

Fedora :: F14 XFCE Spin - Panel Locked

Nov 9, 2010

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.

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.

Debian Multimedia :: Xfce Panel Error Upon Login - Kiosk Mode

Mar 27, 2015

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

(xfce4-panel:896): xfce4-panel-CRITICAL **: panel-window.c:2698 (panel_window_thaw_autohide): expression 'window->autohide_block > 0' failed.

(process:1035): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed

Like I said I've made no changes other than updates and installing sudo.

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 :: Xfce Changes To Gnome Spontaneously?

Jul 10, 2011

Here's the thing: When I work in Xfce session or in Xubuntu session (10.10 on Acer Aspire One) the whole DE switches from Xfce to Gnome. I see it not only on the change of the desktop wallpaper, but on application menu, context menu etc. It changes from my Xfce setup, which I know and love, to Gnome and then back in some 1 to 3 second interval. It switches back and forth untill it finally stays on Gnome. I love Gnome, but would like to have working Xfce on this machine.

I googled for similar problems and possible solutions before posting here, but wasn't successful.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - XFCE Showing GNOME Desktop

Mar 27, 2011

I am the latest stable Ubuntu (10.10) on an Asus netbook and have both GNOME an XFCE installed. I started with Gnome and than installed XFCE because it works slightly faster on that slow computer. In the beginning everything was fine, but at some point. I don't know when (but it was so also when I was running ubuntu 9.10, before I upgraded to 10). This is what started to happen: when I log in and choose XFCE, I first see my XFCE desktop.

Then it flickers back and forth between my XFCE and Gnome desktop (but the top panel remains the XFCE one), and eventually it settles on the GNOME desktop (which has its own color, different icons in different positions, and its own context menus). The general desktop environment is XFCE: the desktop panel and the itmes on it are XFCE, but the desktop area itself is my GNOME desktop. What I can do to get rid of the display of the GNOME desktop when I choose to use XFCE?

Ubuntu :: New 11.04 Xfce Desktop - Not Unity Or Gnome 3?

May 31, 2011

Right now I am running 11.04, 10.04, 10.10. and I am using Unity, Gnome 2.32, and Xfce DE. Since 11.04 came out I have tried it with Unity, Gnome 3, Gnome 2.32 and Now Xfce. I have two internal hard drives and one USB hard drive that I use for testing. The two internal hd are running 10.10 and gnome 2.32 and the other running 11.04 and Unity. The USB hd now has 11.04 and Xfce.

After trying 11.04 with Unity and 11.04 with Gnome 3, I find them both designed wrong. They are very clumsy to use. (To many mouse movements and clicks) To many things need to be open and to many things to search for. I spend more time trying to do simple things that use to take me seconds to do in gnome 2.32.

Now that Gnome 3 is out, I believe gnome 2.32 is going away so I am looking for other avenues to go in. I have tried fedora and suse, but don't like the RPM's and there package manager. A few years ago I tried Xfce but liked gnome better.

This morning I decided to install it on a USB drive and give it a test drive. I find I really like it because I do things in seconds again. Things are easy to find and there is some things that are a lot like gnome 2.32. And one of the biggest things I like is it is so customisable. Also it boots very fast even from a USB drive. I believe I will be going to it as my main DE. I always liked Ubutnu and have use it since 2005 so I am glad I can stay with it even though I do not like or plan to use Unity or Gnome 3 in the future. This doesn't mean I will not change my mind, but as of now I do not like either one. Let see what will happen with the 11.10 release. Here are a few screen shots of 11.04 and Xfce.

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 :: Switched From Gnome To XFCE - Can't Use Certificate Login To Ssh

Mar 5, 2010

So I installed xubuntu-desktop and have been using XFCE as my desktop and everything's groovy except for one thing.

In Gnome, I created a certificate in order to allow me to login to my web host over SSH without requiring the SSH password (which is very long and complex, for good reason). It worked fine under Gnome but now in XFCE when I attempt to SSH to the server, my keyring password is not recognized.

andrew@guardian:~$ ssh <hostname of server>
Enter passphrase for key '/home/user/.ssh/id_dsa':
Enter passphrase for key '/home/user/.ssh/id_dsa':
Enter passphrase for key '/home/user/.ssh/id_dsa':
*****@*******.net's password:
(Note: I redacted the server name and username.)

A few weeks before switching to XFCE I changed my local username from user to andrew, which is why my home directory is called user, but it didn't break the keyring in Gnome.

How can I fix this? The certificate still works properly in PuTTY under Windows, so it's not the cert.

Edit: Using (X)Ubuntu Karmic.
