I am using Ubuntu 10.10 there is an icon left of the clock, its for Assistive Technologies - Universal Access Preferences. I have uninstalled the program, but the icon remains left of the clock. how to remove that icon.
i cannot work out how to get the calculator icon on my top taskbar so i can access it fast from there, i know that with ubuntu you right click on it and add to taskbar, this doesnt seem to do it with xubuntu, i cannot work out how to do it.
I'm completely new to Linux. I'm having the hardest time trying to do the simplest things. I'm using Kopete and I was wondering if I can put the icon on the system taskbar by the clock? I can't drag it there, won't work. I also tried to right click the taskbar and open 'add new items' but Kepete doesn't show on the list.
I have an icon for what seems to be universal access preferences modifying that is residing near my notification area on top GNOME panel. I have been trying to figure out how to get rid of it, but can't seem to. I took the program off of autostart apps, and have checked running processes to see if I could find which program has it going but I have exhausted my limited knowledge base in solving this.
I really like the new, MacOS-like icons in the taskbar. The problem is that if I change the icon theme (to something else than the themes present in ubuntu by default;e the Shiki-Wise theme) the nice icons in the taskbar are gone too. Is there a way of keeping those?
I am running 64bit 10.04 on my Dell Latitude D620 with a BCM4328. The hardware drivers are working and I can connect to my wireless network but...The annoyance is the wireless icon in the task bar does not show a connected status. Instead I get a grayed out icon with a red exclamation point over it. I am connected though.
I have a desktop computer and a NAS, running Kubuntu & Ubuntu. I use WOL to wake the NAS and then mount the drives (NFS) on my desktop. I've placed an icon on my KDE desktop which wakes the NAS and mounts the drives, this works great, but I've set it to run in terminal so I can enter the password for mounting the drives. This leaves me with an open window which I don't want to close because the NAS is set to shutdown 15 minutes after ssh logout. My question is how can I minimize the open terminal window to an icon on my taskbar?
I have this error which happens just after login, and it stay in the bottom panel all the time with a world icon, it's impossible to close (see image below), if I click the world icon the error message pop ups again. How do I make it go away?
I've installed chromium browser package from Index of /repositories/openSUSE:/11.4:/Contrib/standard I notice that the taskbar icon has been missing (for quite some time) - I can confirm it on 3 different openSUSE 11.4 installations - on my laptop, my home HTPC/gaming rig and the worstation at work. The icon in the gnome main menu->internet->chromium looks fine but the icon I get in Compiz Ring Switcher seems to be the same white box icon with the blue bar. I'm sure it started happening since an update of Chromium in Feb/Mar timeframe. Does anyone else face similar problem and may be found a solution to get the icon fixed in the taskbar? I've attached a screenshot showing the problem.
The first issue is adding launch icons to the task bar. I can add launchers, but cannot figure out how to link them to applications. It is only half a problem, because putting links on the desktop is easy, but I prefer having launchers on the task bar so the desktop is not cluttered.The big problem is placement of desktop icons. I like to put icons on the right side of the screen, and more importantly, I like to group related icons. For example, if I had a folder or document for Linux and another for Debian, I want them grouped together. I also like arranging by category: folders in one column, documents and images in another and launchers (if any) in a third. However, if there is way to enable desktop icons to be moved, I cannot figure it out. Icons are fixed on the left side of the screen with folders first in alphabetical order, then documents/images in alphabetical or numerical order, and launch icons last.My guess is icons can be moved, but I am not computer literate enough to figure it out. It does not make sense that the task bar can be placed on the top, bottom, left or right, but desktop icons cannot be moved. I have tried every preference setting, but there are no relevant options.Am I over-looking something that is not obvious or is it a strange deficiency with LXDE?
I'm running Kubuntu Meerkat. If I set skype to start minimized automatically, it seems that it's running but there's no way to get to it. It shows up in the process list but there's no icon for it in the taskbar or anywhere else on the screen. Even worse, I can't just kill and restart it; if I kill it, it just comes back. If I issue the skype command from the K menu or from a command line, I get a complaint that another instance is already running.
I'm running Xubuntu 11.04 64bit for the first time. It's very nice. But how do I remove the mail icon off the taskbar? When I right click it want to remove the whole launcher, and I don't want to do that.
I've got a desktop "konsole" shortcut that works great, it has a "konsole" icon on it that fits well.
I've copied this desktop shortcut to a taskbar shortcut (via drag'n drop).
The result is a usable shortcut, but with a wrong icon image.
I've reproduced the problem three times for different apps and obtained three times the same icon (but the shortcut is however good).
If I open the configuration popup, it displays the correct icon ...
Indeed, I found a way to change the icon : I must modify the icon of the filetype associated with "desktop" filetype ... but after a reboot, all icons will changed Strange isn't it ? have a look of the screenshot
I have taken the largest chill pill I could find and have reinstalled nutty into a spare partition with a view to taking a more forgiving approach... i'll mostly stand by the rants for the time being... Has anyone found a simple (or complex for that matter - I just want it gone!) way to disable the randomly activated lefthand vertical taskbar in unity?It really is an unnecessary irritation when I can put my essential apps down the bottom where they belong with docky (thus reducing mouse mileage on my widescreen) and have everything else a WinKey+App away.Interesting that typing "Configuration" into the search box returns 0 results on a default natty install **** Additional ****Tweaking the Unity Plugin through Advanced Compiz Manager (and gconf-editor) leads me believe that I am after a "feature" that is not available:in gconf-editor:/apps/compiz-1/plugins/unityshell/screen0/options/launcher_hide_modeis the key I would like to have an additional option of "Always" added the currently available options being "0 = Never, 1 = Autohide, 2 = Dodge Windows, 3 = Dodge Active Window"
Not able to remove one of the time shown in taskbar,it can't be editable and I'm not able to remove it from my panel,when it appeared the shutdown button was removed by itself.No Idea how it happens, please tell me why it happened and how to change it.
Mounting a disk automatically from /etc/fstab puts an icon on the desktop, whether it's appropriate or not. How can I prevent this? Is there an option? I have two disks mounted with the commands /dev/sda2 /media/Windisk ntfs-3g defaults 0 0 //machine/sharename /media/myshare cifs guest,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8,codepage=cp850 0 0
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
I would like to remove the anchor icon from Docky. I found instructions to go into gconf-editor and set "apps/docky-2/docky/items/DockyItem/ShowDockyItem" to false. Only problem is, this item does not appear.
The only folders in apps/docky-2/docky/items/ are ColoredIconDockItem and WnckDockItem. Inside ColoredIconDockItem, there's a key called DockyItem set at value 193. I tried changing/deleting that and restarting Docky, but it keeps defaulting back. I also removed and reinstalled Docky, but I found the same thing. Does anyone know how I can find the right value to change?
