I just installed ubuntu 11.04 on my HP Mini 110 and everything is working great except for the battery notification. It can tell me the percentage of battery left, just not the time of usage left, which is very important to me.
*edit: the battery notification is stuck at "estimating"
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on my laptop, and every time I unplug my laptop from power it notifies me that my battery is discharging. The window appears in front of anything I'm doing, but is not the active window, forcing me to mouse over and hit OK every time I unplug my laptop from power. Is there any way to remove this redundant notification altogether.
Last night I upgraded to the 10.04 development release, and I am pleased with what I see so far. I ran into a problem, however, with the power manager.I am using an MSI Wind U100.
First, I have lost my battery icon from the notification area. It reappears if I plug in, or unplug my AC adapter. Second, under, "Power Management Preferences" I have lost my "On Battery Power" tab, leaving only, "On AC Power" and "General"
If I wait about seven minutes, the battery icon will appear in the notification area, but the tab remains lost.The problem is due to update. I have confirmed by installing a fresh 9.10 and upgrading again to 10.04 without making any other changes to system.
I had a make file which deals with hundreds of thousand jpeg images. I submitted this job by using: nohup make & Is there any possible way that brings this program back to foreground? I can only use ps to monitor the status, command jobs cannot find it.
I have just upgraded to lucid and the first thing that I noticed was that the different shutdown options (Logout, Restart etc.) disappeared from the user-switch menu (at least that's how I think it is called) where they were located previously under karmic. Logout and Shutdown are placed under the System menu currently, and they work fine, but my question is how to show all (or some) of the shutdown options in the System or user menu? I dislike going through the dialog and prefer to choose my action directly from the menu.I have tried removing and readding the user-switch applet, to no avail. I tried adding menu items to both the system menu and the user menu, to no avail either
When I right click on my mp3 player it gives me the option of ejecting or safely removing. If i do either it appears too the computer as though I unplugged it even though it's still connected to the computer. Is there a way to bring back unmount so that it will still appear under places? I would really love to have that behavior back
How to bring Desktop back again on Fedora 15. We have developed an application that places some shortcuts on Desktop. With Desktop disappearing in Fedora 15, those shortcuts will become useless. Can we shorten the learning process in Gnome 3?
I start a process, put it in the background running, then log out, then log in again, and want to bring the process to front again. I've looked in "ps aux" for the PID, but it won't be put in the foreground with "fg ###". What's the correct way? (I use the same account for both login sessions.)
I hate using Software Center. I can't pick more than one program to install at one time. It downloads only one program at a time.The downloads take longer. I'm not able to look at all available programs at once. It doesn't categorise the programs on the sidebar, but instead you have to use another icon window. Gnome-app-install was just easer to use. Anyone else feel this way?
Following lines taken from other replies in this post to make it easier to do:
-You can install gnome-app-install from this ppa repo.

I"m thinking of trying out Cairo Dock with Ubuntu for the next 2 weeks until Meerkat comes out, but if I prefer the gnome panel I'd like to bring that back. I can right click the lower task bar in Ubuntu and "remove this panel." if there is there any way I can bring it back? Also if anyone here uses Cairo Dock could you let me know your thoughts on it?
Yesterday I upgraded my Ubuntu 10.4 to new version 11. In during installation I don't really remember which option I choose for installing Ubuntu root direction, but after installation completed computer asked for restarting. I restarted computer, and after I restarted the computer, computer should bring up Menu to choose Windows Or Linux, but this time automatically after a few second screen turn black and than Ubuntu show up. But I don't want that because I want choose Windows, and now I don't have any Idea how should I bring the Menu back.
yesterday i upgraded my Maverick Meekat 10.10 to 11.04. When i was exploring new features of Natty Narwhal i by mistake disabled Unity in CCSM.

However i am able to log in as Ubuntu Classic with old menus and functions. how to bring Run command? so that i can run CCSM and bring back my Unity dockbar and top Panel?
I lost boot option for Opensuse. I am sure it is still installed, only thing I want to know is how to bring the boot option back. I had duel boot option for vista and opensuse now after switching on vista starts by default and I am not having any option for choosing one of them as I had before.
I had started a process through ssh and then i did 'cntrl+Z' and 'bg' and 'disown' before closing the ssh connection. That process kept running in the background in the other machine and now i want to bring it back to foreground in that machine. However running the command 'fg %<process_id>' is not helping. What do i DO!?
10.04 I managed to delete the Volume Applet that appears by default on the task bar. I'm sure it used to be listed in 'Add to Panel' in other version of Ubuntu however I can't see it there in 10.04. Can someone explain to me how I get it back?
Our office housing keeping guy sat on my linux (Fedora 7) system and somehow removed the main panel. By panel I mean where all the menus are there - Applications, Places, System etc. and contains a tab for every running application. I brought back the panel but now I don't see the terminal launcher and I can't find it anywhere.It used to be there in "Applications -> System Tools -> Terminal" but now the System Tools option itself is not present there. System -> Preferences -> Look and Feel -> Main Menu. There one System option is unchecked but I can't check it and apply. I am logged in as root.
How to format hard drive (with ubuntu 10.10 maverick, 32-bit vs.) and, after it will have been formatted, bring all system settings and programs which I run know back e.g. Compiz, browsers and other (of course without installing each one of it separately)? Is it possible to copy some parts of the HD and copy it after format?I can add, that I'm using now three partitions: dev/sda1/ (with Win7 OS � 64-bit, NTFS); dev/sda3 (with ubuntu 10.10 32-bit vs.; ext3) and dev/sda4 (linux swap); dev/sda4 (NTFS for storing files).
I installed 10.4 a good few weeks ago and was worried when I didn't see the volume controls in the main panel, so I took someone's advice and added an indicator applet, you know the one with the volume and mail symbols? Today then my computer just switched off when it had insufficient power in the battery (I didn't realise it wasn't plugged in) but I got no warning that it was low on power.
Two things then, is there a better applet for volume and one at all for the battery so I can get some kind of notifications?
