I followed the instructions in this guide to get the plasma workspace without having to migrate to kde:http://digitizor.com/2010/01/01/how-...28Digitizor%29All went well, I was able to complete all the steps in the guide, and I double clicked the "plasma workspace.sh" and it launched the plasma workspace fine.Then I tried using the gnome-desktop.sh the same way, but it just started the gnome desktop and quickly reverted to the plasma workspace. So I looked at the commands in the plasma.sh and the gnome.sh, and the commands on the guide page, and noticed they were the same for both shell scripts. So I changed the gnome desktop.sh from:
I find that I prefer have both panels located at the screen top. That way I don't have to go to the bottom of the screen for one thing, then back to the top for another. I arranged the panel so the regular top one is on top,then the panel that contains the open applications is underneath.The problem is, when I reboot, the panels lose their order. First, the regular top panel initializes, then the bottom ones starts and pushes the first panel down, which becomes what you see in the picture: I would like to find a way to keep them in the opposite order of what you see in the picture, but every time I reboot they end up in that order.
i am running on ubuntu 10.10 netbook on my acer 5742 64 bit laptop i having some issues with the vertical panel how can i just use the regular panel that come on top is there a way to fix this issues how can i just have regular gnome panel not the ones that come with 10.10 netbook edition is there any guide and how to take away this vertical panels and have normal panels.
I deleted all my panels and have been using AWN. Well, Ive decided that I want my panels back. I can get the panels to run through terminal but if i restart, they disappear again. How do I permanently restore my panels? I know that I had to turn off the values for Gnome-panel when deleting the last panel, and I just dont know where I went to do it because I was following instructions from another thread.
i'm an EEE PC user planning an imminent move to Ubuntu Lucid/ Maverick & Debian Sid . . i've put some work into my existing Ubuntu install based on 9.10 karmic nbr2 and am very happy with the results - full credit and thanks to allscreenshots of my work in progress ati'm therefore hoping to be able to upgrade my machine rather than do a fresh install, tho i have by now got .iso's of my present install and backups( dumps ) of gconf.managed to trash my panels a few days back and ended up rebuilding themas gconf --loadand restoring my /.gconf had failed to do the trick of restoring.
I installed the two-panel Nautilus version to Karmic and it added a "start_with_extra_panel" key to gconf. Now, after an upgrade to Lucid, the key is still there but it has no mapping. So, is there a way to tell Gnome to always start with two panels in Lucid?
I have a computer which I have just installed Ubuntu on, after wiping the hard drive and everything is fine except that upon login (it is set to login automatically and skip the login screen), no panels appear. Everything is fully functional: the mouse moves, I can right-click to create a new folder, etc. but I cannot access anything because I have no panels. I have tried two different monitors, one 17" and one smaller (I think 15") and both do the same thing.
I accidentally closed my panels and now my computer EEE with XUbuntu 8.10 has no top or bottom bars. The command i need is xfrc4-panel but where to I put this to make it startup again correctly. What folder and what file and where in the file, and are there any parameters to add.
So, after upgrade from 10.10 to 11.04, after I login there are no panels. Only thing I can do is right click and bring down a drop-down menu. So I created firefox launcher. I've tried to reboot in recovery mode, in some display safe mode, and all panels and windows look fine, with all window buttons, so I tried to change display driver from current recommended to 173 (Nvidia). After reboot problem is still here. I also tried to rename new xorg.conf and replace it with what I think was pre-upgrade one in /etc/X11 but nothing helped.
i am running ubuntu 9.4 yesterday i was trying to remove evolution mail and it's okay it's done removed after restart i cant found the Both panels.i found a way to restore them on this site but the way is by using terminal and . i cant open the terminal - cuz i cant found the panels even alt+f2 - do nothing.i found a download link for gnome-terminal-2.30.0 packege , But i don't know how to install it.
I've done a fresh install of 10.04 (amd64) on a computer with two screens and twinview configured and I don't see how to move the Gnome panels to the second screen.Left-clicking and dragging them to the desired position (something that worked fine in 8.04) doesn't seem to work. Needless to say that the position picker in properties does not contain any "second screen" options.
I just did a fresh install of 10.04, everything was fine until I ran the update manager then 1 the computer wouldnt shut down, so I used the power buttom to power down and 2 after the updates ,,when my computer booted back up , I have lost both of my panels. all I can do is right click the desktop. this is the second time for this computer the other ones I installed 10.04 on didnt do this to me . I am working on a Dell optiplex gx110.
I installed the two-panel Nautilus version to Karmic and it added a "start_with_extra_panel" key to gconf. Now, after an upgrade to Lucid, the key is still there but it has no mapping. So, is there a way to tell Nautilus to always start with two panels in Lucid? Also, how hard is it to replace the current version of Nautilus with the one from ppa:berndth/ppa as I really like that one?
I'm an experienced programmer on other systems, but pretty new to Ubuntu. I'm having trouble with a fresh install of 10.4 Lucid Lynx on an old Pentium III desktop that was working fine with a previous release of Ubuntu. The problem started after an upgrade to 10.4, persisted after doing a clean install from CD, and is still there after installing all recommended updates.
The symptom is that after login, neither the top nor the bottom gnome panels are displayed. I can right-click on the desktop and get the desktop menu, and I can type Alt-F1 and get the left-hand launcher menus, though the top panel still does not display.
The problem does not always occur, but nearly always. The first login to a newly created account will often show the panels, but in subsequent logins the panels are hidden.
If I login in Failsafe GNOME mode, the panels will appear.
I can fix the problem for a given login session by opening gconf-editor, editing /apps/panels/toplevels/top_panel_screen0, and toggling auto_hide on and then off again. If I log out and back in again, the problem recurs. The problem is that I'm trying to set up this computer for some very naive users, so this kind of workaround isn't really practical.
I'm not sure if it matters, but in the Appearance preferences, visual effects are set to "none".
how I might get the gnome panels to appear reliably?
i want to add a "Network" access to the "Files & folder" panel, so i dont have to click a folder and then inside nautilus click on network.Is there any way to do this? Also after installing UNR, the hard drive where i have UNR installed doesnt appear anymore under "volumes". However if i stick an usb memory it appears there... any workaround?
I installed 10.04 twice on a recycled 10 year old Dell, using both a regular and an alternative live CD. With both installs, there were no top or bottom Gnome panels when I started up so I could not access the programs, make changes, etc. A message appeared asking if I wanted to delete the aplets (or panel?) the first time I started it up. I answered yes with the regular CD and no with the alternative, but did not see the massage again.
i have just installed cairodock and configured my first panel on the left side of the desktop. now i would like to have a second panel on teh bottom of the desktop for system tray icons. but i cant find teh option to have 2 panels. how do i do it?
I have dual screen setup with my laptop screen being primary and the external display secondary.I have added new panel to the secondary screen (with application launcher, taskbar and some other widgets), which is working fine. But,when I start the laptop without the external display, both panels are displayed on the primary (laptop) screen overlaying each other and making them both quite impossible to use.A always have to remove one of them after connecting external display create one again.Is there any way to make the panel stay fixed (or not to display) on the secondary sreen, no matter if the external display is connecter or not? Or should i submit this as a bug/feature request?
I'm setting up a second monitor connected to my laptop via Twinview in the Nvidea settings manager for my system. It is working just fine, except for the fact that when I enable it, it puts the Desktop panels on the secondary screen, as opposed to the primary one. Is there any way to make new panels on the primary screen, or to move them over to the primary screen? I am running Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit on an HP Pavillion dv7 laptop.
I just installed Ubuntu on my new computer, after previously installing it on my laptop, and it worked flawlessly, except now that it's up and running, I realized that gnome is really screwed up. The panels and buttons are ugly, and all the applets on the panels are duplicated after I log in.
I had both the taskbar panel (that starts default at bottom) and main panel (that default starts on top) both moved to the bottom because I'm used to Windows. I changed one panel to autohide, the topmost I believe, and now the two panels seem to have merged, with me being unable to right click either panel and access the panels to remedy the situation. The panels flicker erratically when I have my mouse on top of the panel and the only thing I can access is trash, power, and mail, with no other options.I read in other posts that I should try to access the terminal, but I never set up a keyboard shortcut to the terminal and am unsure if I can access it any other way. I saw the virtual terminal, but was unable to open anything through it.I took a screenshot to show what I have:Please note that right clicking the panel does absolutely nothing, so I am pretty desperate at this point. I had to access the internet through my other computer to post this.
Does anyone know the pixel dimensions for the panels.I want to design a panel background image in gimp for the entire panel but I don't know how many pixels they are from left to right. I know (or I think) that they are 24 pixels from top to bottom but how many across?
I have designed images to use as panel backgrounds but they tile so it's like one consistent thing as I don't know the dimensions for the length of panels, only the 24 pixel height. I've attached a couple so try them out, they're pretty cool.
