Ubuntu :: Icons From Panel Sometimes Won't Show Whole Icon
Sep 14, 2010
I don't know what could be causing it, but my Icons from the panel sometimes won't show the whole icon, sometimes it show two icons overlapping each other, I was hoping it would be that I should have set the Panel size according to a "better" and standard Icons size, but that did'nt solve the problem as I changed to 48px; does anyone have a clue what could be causing it?
I've installed Office 2007 under wine, and would like to add launchers for Word, Excel, etc to the Unity launcher bar.
So, I've created a launcher on the Desktop that will run Word with wine. I've changed the icon to the Word Icon and everything works great from the desktop. If I drag that launcher to the Unity bar, it adds it, but changes the icon to the springboard default icon that new launchers use. Please see attached picture.
As a side note, I am really starting to like Unity (puts on flamesuit), but it seems very easy to break the install of 11.04. I've had to reinstall 4 times now.
I tried xdg-desktop-icon command. It does install a shortcut. The shortcut works when double clicked. But the shortcut is shown as a standard icon, not the icon defined in the .desktop file. Do I miss something?
It always shows a same icon, for every application which shows message tray icon. I just did some shell extension work after fresh installation of F15, nothing related on message tray. Don't know how to change it back.Dose anyone knows how to customize message tray icon for gnome-shell?
Someone on the forums had me uninstall pulseaudio to get pSX working, and now I don't have a volume control icon on the panel and when choosing to add stuff to the panel it isn't available.I re-installed pulseaudio through the package manager, but I have a feeling it didn't install everything that uninstalled with 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?
Unlike ubuntu on xubuntu I am not able to add additional icons to the top panel. I wanted to add icons to start Open Office Writer and terminal but for some reason I can't.I right clicked on an app (icon) to add it to the panel but that does not work.I clicked on an app (icon) and tried to move it to the panel. No success.I right clicked on the panel and selected "Add new items" but the list of apps is limited. What I want to do is be able to launch applications from the top panel by adding icons to the panel.
when the screen resolution on my computer, and sometimes when I just turn on my computer the launchers or icons, or whatever they are called, are all moved around in the panel.Is there any program that will restore the icons with a click or something. I have already tried locking the panel, but that does not work.
I've recently installed 10.04 on my laptop and spent some time configuring it. A while ago I've noticed that there are now two battery icons in the panel in the top-right corner. One seems to be attached to the indicator applet and the other one sits by itself. Changing the settings in the Power Management menu affects both icons in the same way (I can either show or hide them both). Is there any way to remove the extra icon and just keep the one integrated into the indicator?
This is a very minor annoyance really, but it'd still be nice if there was a fix for it.
Update: Now the battery icon in the indicator applet has changed to the chat "evelope" icon, but it still acts as a battery icon (same menu). Something is definitely not right here...
I have two icons on the far right of my top panel that have no "Move menu item". I would like to move them so that they are more to the left and the search is first on right followed by the time/date and everything else after that. One icon is Dropbox and the other is my wireless signal icon. How do I move these icons? There is no lock to panel or move menu item.
Been using Ubuntu for a year or so now. My drive crashed, so I started over, this time getting 11.04. Now, my icons on the upper right panel are just a black box with a red crossed-out circle. One is my internet connection, the other is Dropbox. Neither seems to be recognized.
I accidentally removed my little speaker (volume control) and internet buttons from my launch panel. I can't seem to figure how to put them back. They are not listed in the 'Add to panel' right click option.
Whenever I add something to my desktop, if something with the same name has been on my desktop previously (like 'screenshot.png'), it will go to where it was previously, which sometimes causes the icons to overlap and what not.
I just wanted to know if it was possible to make the icons always go to the first open place.
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 just installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 32Bit on my Dell Inspiron B130 Laptop, and it works great, way faster then windows XP which was pre-installed on the machine. Everything worked out of the box except for the Wireless but after some reading I was able to get it to work by plugging it in to the wired connection. but anyway the problem I'm having is that it seems like after a few days of use ubuntu starts to act up, things become out of place and not work. this even happens with Linux Mint also. By acting up I mean, Icons start to disappear in the panel, my wireless connection starts to stop working and the only way to keep it on is to either log off and try to log in using KDE instead of GNOME. or open terminal and do the command nm-appt or something someone on the chat told me to do to try and get my wireless icon working.
Randomly, when I start up my computer, the top panel will have some icons missing, or an icon will be covered up by part of another.Example: Note that half of the battery icon is shown where the network manager applet should be. Here is what it is supposed to look like:
This happens very randomly. As you can see by the times, both of those were taken on the same day. I logged out and logged back in, and it look fine.
Network Indicator won't budge. this happens sometimes where an icon won't move when I try to middle click and move it around.any other ways to "reset" the panel? or move the damn icon that's sitting there in the middle
Say I set a background color or custom image to a panel. The notification icons (sound, net activity, clock, etc) and a few other icons (trash, desktop) appear to retain the default background. Looks kind of funky. Any way I can make these icons conform to my custom background?
First user, everything still normal. All other users and any added users basically have no desktop now. Background and arrow are there, but no right-click no panels. Have tried every option in other similar posts including deleting .config, .gnome2, etc files. Also tried all the commands at URL..I can login user with xterm session and launch gnome-panel, which provides some functionality, but this basically sucks, because there is no window manager. I have tried changing themes and various compiz stuff, but no success yet. Even removed and reinstalled compiz.
haven't seen this in years since I'm using Ubuntu, but might probably be just a single step to get it back and running.I have a notebook with Ubuntu 10.10 newly installed and since some days, there are no more icons in the notification area.Before it stopped working, I had to do a hard shutdown because the system hung.For now, i.e. when I go to a terminal and enter
how do I go about changing the icons that appear in the gnome-panel? I'm insanely picky about that kind of thing Here is a screenshot of what I mean, I want the IPblock icon changed to something more in-keeping with my theme
clue me in on howto get a konsole icon to display in my left-hand panel? I would like Konsoles in just about every workspace, but there are none. I'm glad that the new release at least booted :-) but since I am a CLI-type, need at least one thing to type into.
I know how to solve this problem: "You have to enable Appearances->Interface->Show icons in menu." from: [url]
My problem, however, is that on the current version of GNOME that I am running in Squeeze, when I click on "Appearances", there is no "Interface" tab! What do I do about this? Certain icons are missing because of this.
