Ubuntu Installation :: Administration Menu Items Missing After Upgrade To 10.04
May 14, 2010
just recently upgraded to 10.04. After the upgrade I noticed that certain Administration menu items are msising. I can't find the "Hardware Drivers" tool. Is there a way to reinstall to put the complete files and correct the menu items, etc.?
At least the DVD I downloaded a few days ago was nothing like the one that was downloaded on release, most worked I'm missing a couple of important things on the gnome menus, nothing on system>preferences or Admin for printing, I had to configure the printer directly with the CUPs admin panel. These no way to edit the menus, right clicking on the bar has no effect, and I haven't form menu-edit in the repos with yumex, or the gnome control pane. Have these been dropped in FC14 ?
First off, I have spent several hours searching this and other forums looking for an answer to this, and have tried several things, none of which have fixed this issue. Here is what I'm seeing:I performed a new install of FC12 on a Thinkpad R40, 512Mb RAM, with a 40Gb HDD, 38Gb useable, from a live CD. That leaves a little over 9Gb free for expansion. All went well with the install, but the post-boot upgrade would not complete due to an error with the abrt files. I found a thread discussing this and used the suggested method of performing the updates from a shell, which worked fine. There were LOTS of installations, updates, and replacements, and finally the shell returned "Complete!". After a reboot I was going through the Fedora_12_ User_ Guide.pdf and noticed many items missing from the System Menu as described in section 184.108.40.206 "The System menu". Another thread seemed to address a similar issue with su - then yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment", which I did. It updated over 870 items, then completed with no errors. At this point I logged out and back in, no change, and then tried a reboot, which also did not change anything. Finally, I'm appealing to the community.
Well like the title Implies, In my Administration menu in Gnome I don't have a "Printing" option. So I can't search for/install printers right now.I'm running 10.04 Server. I installed the gnome-desktop-environment package to get a GUI up and running for manipulating the filesystem, But not all the menu's I was expecting appeared. Is this because I used the gnome-desktop-environment instead of the ubuntu-desktop-environment package? ecause I have two PC's setup next to each other. One using the ubuntu-desktop-environment, and one using the gnome-desktop-environment package and the two desktops are clearly different.All I want to know is how to add the Printers menu to my PC running the gnome-desktop-environment package. I already looked at gconf-editor and the printing menu isn't hidden or anything, it's just not there. And me being a new user to Linux, I don't know how else to get to those printer abilities without the GUI
Not sure what precipitated this but Administration and Preferences are missing from the System menu. how to get them back? I have to go through the Gnome menu to get to System, not sure how it got removed from the panel.
My application bars are all missing their menu bars. They were showing up (along with the application title) on the top panel but I ran 'nohup gnome-panel' to at least make my system partially usable (i.e. this restores the top panel and the bottom 'bar' that has the running application icons and it also restored my close/minimize/maximize buttons to my windows).
I'm running Comsol 4.0 and in Unity the top Panel is supposed to have the menu items of the focused application, however Unity does not create them for Comsol. Notice the two pictures below, one running Comsol in Unity, the other one running in Gnome 2.32. Where my File>Edit>Options>Help at Unity
I just upgraded my Ubuntu 9.10 to Ubuntu 10.04. Part of the Ubuntu 9.10 installation was GParted (version 0.4.5) and I saw, after upgrading to Ubutnu 10.04, there was a more recent version available: 0.5.1.
After installing that version, GParted was still part of the System > Administration menu (just as it was before).
But then I saw the version 0.6.0 of GParted was recently released and there was also a .deb distro available.
After downloading and installing the 0.6.0 version of GParted, the item GParted disappeared from the System > Administration menu and appeared in another menu (Applications > System Tools).
My question: how can I get GParted back as part of the Systems > Administrations menu?
i am having a problem on Ubuntu 10.10. In system menu, there is no Administration or Preferences menu.Also, application menu does not show anything. I am using Ubuntu since 2 weeks and still not used to to the terminal commands for running applications and admin tools.
one more thing.When i booted my PC today it reported an error and process terminated before reaching the login window. So i restarted and chose recovery mode. it also reported some errors and tried to fix the problem. it deleted some files i think. and my system is working again but with above mentioned problem.
I downloaded one of the businesscard isos and booted up, but have run into the problem that my usb keyboard is dead in the installer. It works in setting up my bios, and has always worked before, but I cannot choose any items on the installation menu. I found a bug report that seems to be this issue, but it said that this would be fixed when debian moves to the 2.6.32 kernel on the installer.
I have upgraded a previous partial installation of karmic up to lucid. When I go to System->Administration there is no "Hardware Drivers" link. What should I apt-get install to get the Hardware Drivers link.
I used 'preupgrade' to upgrade from Fedora 13 to Fedora 15. After some problems during reboot, Fedora 15 finally finished the "Upgrade to Fedora 15" step and I was able to successfully boot into Fedora 15.
But my desktop items from Fedora 13 are gone. While the new GUI is nice I would like to recover my desktop items from Fedora 13. How do I do that and put them on the main Window desktop of Fedora 15 ?
i have java app. i want make my Linux dedicated to that application.such that,when Linux load it start the app, start menu have Shutdown,reboot and my application luncher, only one window , desktop right-click also have the same menu-items as start-menu.
I'm newbie to Ubuntu, I have found that under System > Administration > Services options is missing. Also Networking option is missing.The Ubuntu Version : Ubuntu 9.10 - the Karmic Koala - released in October 2009
I just installed 10.04 and configured my Radeon 5570 to span my desktop across a pair of identical1600 x 1200 monitorsng the proprietary drivers (and Catalyst Control Center)After doing this I seem to have lost my previous panel configurations that included the Software, Administration and Preferences menu from previous desktop configuration.I am attempting to add the menus back but I cannot find an option to actually "add a menu"... only icon shortcuts to specific applications/utilities
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 and I can't seem to find the printer administration tool, it's not located in System->Administration->Printer or anywhere else on the menu. I've checked the menu editor and it's not shown there either.
Installed the 64 bit version of Fedora 13. I can't log in on the graphical login with root. I can with the user I created.I can su to root after that in a terminal. Unable to locate the Administration menu but it's not where its suppose to be. yum gives me a error "refresh-packagekit" can't be imported
I just upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10. I originally had installed the nvidia drivers using the bash script from nvidia's website. This time around I used the ones from synaptic. However now when I go and look in System -> Administration there are 2 entries for "NVIDIA X Server Settings". The first one has the NVIDIA logo, the other one has a grey question mark. Does anyone know why there are 2 entries and how I can remove one of them?
I can't seem to hide any items on the "Games" menu from "Main Menu" (System->Preferences->Main Menu). I can hide items on all of the other menus under the main one but the game links won't change. Is there another way to do this?
I've just started using Debian having previously used Ubuntu. With Ubuntu, under the System->Administration menu I get lots of options (e.g. Network Tools, Printing, Services...) to select from, but with Debian I just get Login Screen. Do I just get the one option because this is the only thing installed, or do I need to do something to enable other admin options?
I just need to develop a menu based Administration tools in LINUX similar like SAM - HP and SMIT - AIX , should be in a position to work with tab and space bar and arrow keys ,should i write a code in c language only or i can implement the same in shell script itself.
simple installs of CentOS5.2 i386 on 2x Dell C640's and x86-64 on a Dell dimension 9150 resulted in the System/Administration menu offering two entries each with the name 'hardware' and the icon showing a little chip hovering over a PC. I did "add this launcher to panel" on both as an easy way of checking their properties:
The higher entry issues the command 'hwbrowser' The lower entry issues the command 'hal-device-manager'
Both have the comment "view information on the hardware on this computer". I feel the hal-device-manager entry has the wrong name, comment, and icon. I think /etc/xdg/menus/system-settings.menu is relevant.
I installed a dual boot Windows 7 / Ubuntu netbook remix 10.04 yesterday.So far so good, everything works fine.
However, i would like to get rid of the little enveloppe in the menu bar, more precisely in what i think is called the notification area. i have found some stuff online about how I'm supposed to delete a package and restart, quite unsuccessful method really, since the envelope is still there.
Plus whenI right click on the menu bar to pin / unpin items, it doesnt work, all the submenus are greyed out.
When I choose System --> Preferences --> Screensaver, it runs x-screensaver instead of gnome-screensaver, BUT, in /usr/share/applications, I have the file:
And the contents are:
[Desktop Entry] Name=Screensaver Comment=Set your screensaver preferences Icon=preferences-desktop-screensaver Exec=gnome-screensaver-preferences
So it should be launching gnome-screensaver, not x-scrensaver. Where on earth is x-screensaver getting launched from? I thought the menu was determined by /usr/share/applications. (By the way, I did previously have x-screensaver instead of gnome, I am trying to put it back how it was. I have more-or-less succeeded, except this Menu item which is puzzling me.)
I don't like Windows 7 Starter, nor Microsoft. I'm in the process of ditching them for Ubuntu. I'm trying, I really am. I've successfully installed Ubuntu Netbook Edition, and I'm now stuck. How the hell do I use this? I can't figure out how to add different items to my side menu bar. I can't figure out which version of Ubuntu I have. The documentation page says, "To check which version of Ubuntu you are running, click System -> About Ubuntu. The first line of the page that loads will tell you the version number, for example Ubuntu 10.04 LTS." I DON'T EVEN HAVE A "SYSTEM" BUTTON! How am I supposed to use this clumsy OS? I can't find any sort of "beginner's guide" or help like that on the internet.
