Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Move Indicator Session Applet To The Right Of The System Date/clock Applet
May 6, 2010
I thought I was removing the chat status piece of the indicator applet (I know what it is now, didn't then), but I accidentally removed the whole thing. Now when I figured out how to put it back on the panel, I can't get it back to where it was (which was to the RIGHT of the system date/time applet). How can I do this as well as move the indicator applet that has the volume control in it?
the indicator applet on Lucid has a clock, so that I now have two in my panel: the clock applet and the one in the indicator applet. I prefer the clock applet and would like to get rid of the clock in the indicator applet.
It should be possible, since the clock only shows up on my desktop PC, not my laptop.
Sometime yesterday, I noticed that I couldn't turn off the computer using the indicator in the top right corner because of a glitch in how the clock is displayed. As you can see in the screenshot below, the indicator applet is hidden and I had no idea how to "refresh" the panel so that the indicator applet would show again. Although this doesn't happen often, I encounter this problem from time to time.
I goofed and deleted my all the indicators on the right of the top panel on Gnome in 11.04 I sure would like them back especially the sessions menu. I've tried "Add to Panel" but they aren't the same ones that were there before.
Windows refugee here trying out different flavors of Linux. I like Ubuntu a lot but have noticed some peculiar behavior sometimes with the Indicator Applet Session becoming mangled and unusable. If I click on it nothing happens. I haven't determined any particular cause yet but it seems to have happened twice after using Google's Chrome browser.
The indicator applet session gnome-panel applet (the one that lets you change your status for empathy/pidgin, logout, switch user, etc.) has the suspend and hibernate options. My computer will not suspend or hibernate properly (every time I try to wake it up, the hard drive will work for about 4 minutes and the screen will stay blank so I have to restart) and I would like to remove those items from the menu. I would just like to know if there is a way to remove the hibernate and suspend items in the indicator applet session menu. I've already tried browsing around gconf-editor to no avail. If it is not possible, let me know
I made a fresh install of Lucid, but I miss under status widget that controls the pidgin's status in the top panel near turn off button, a blank field where you can type in your personal status message. Like one in the attachment below. What am I actually missing?
Ubuntu have two logout dialogs. One is well known LogOut dialog with Switch User option and second is standalone LogOut dialog from Indicator Applet Session.Did somebody know the command for Indicator Applet Session LogOut dialog?
I was using both the Indicator Applet and the Notification Area applets in my panel but realized that very often when I started the system, the icons of these applet appeared mixed. Some items were duplicated (for example the keyboard indicator) where others were missing (sometimes the battery indicator, sometimes the sound indicator, etc). When that happened I had to remove them and add them to panel again.
This seems to be a bug that makes one applet interfere with the other (maybe because there are some items that appear in both but when you add both initially nothing is duplicated but after a system restart the problem happens).After searching for some way to fix this apparent bug without success I decided to remove the Indicator applet and keep just the Notification Area.
It works but then I don't have the sound applet anymore, because it was part of the Indicator Applet. I searched for a standalone sound applet but I couldn't find any. Do you know of any such applet that I could install in the system? If I can find any it would be fine to me and I would be satisfied using just the Notification Area.
Had ubuntu for a few years left came back last month. I lost the indicator applet in the panel. I don't know what I did to get it back. I feel like this is a very very simple thing to fix but I just can't find it. Here is a pic of what i'm talking about.
I removed the "indicator applet" from the default gnome panel at the top of the default Lucid desktop. Doing so resulted in me losing the ability to control the sound from the panel, which I value so I put it back.Once I restored the indicator applet to the panel, the nm-applet went missing. I'm still connecting to my home network with no problem, so the function is there, but the little icon that updates when you're trying to connect, shows signal strength, and other available networks is now missing. This I've searched the problem and haven't found any solutions that work, I think because of the new applet integration, but I'm very surprised this hasn't been found by someone yet!
I had the Clock Applet installed in my panel up through 10.04- when I did the upgrade to 10.10, it was removed (with no explaination). Now, when I try to put it back into the panel, I get the following error message-"The panel encountered a problem while loading OAFIID:GNOME_ClockApplet"and asks me if I want to leave it anyway, or remove it. Regardless of what I select, it does not appear.I like the clock applet. Has anyone else had this issue? Would this be classified as a bug, or is it already a known issue? I have not searched Bugzilla yet.Would this have any relation to the issue I am having with being unable to re-install evolution (Which was also removed during upgrade)?
I must be overlooking something here, but I can't find out how to add "Alarm Clock Applet" to my panel. In Ubuntu Software Center, there's a picture of the program right in the panel and feature to add to panel, but there's no option for me to do this. "Add to Panel" doesn't have the application either.
Ive been looking and have found some python scripts to add apps to the indicator-applet and I was wondering if anyone knew an app or script the would add an rss reader to the indicator-applet, any rss reader would be great for now
I have installed ubuntu 10.04 yesterday. I also placed the indicator-applet to my top panel.
My question is: It is lacking the textbox. I see every detail that should be there in the menu, except for the input-textbox. Can anyone tell me how I can get this back?
I've been searching the forums, but could not find a solution (nor anyone else having this problem, though I remembered someone else stating the same issue before I experienced it, but I couldn't find it back... must be murphy's law )
I'm using the indicator applet on my top-panel with gm-notify, but the only mail-client I use is the gmail webUI, so I don't need the entries above, just the bottom two entries related to gmail. any way to accomplish this?... is there a config-file for the indicator applet?
here's a screenshot:
I want to remove the first three entries in that list.
I am trying to use the indicator applet instead of the old notification area. I've noticed that just like the notification area, the indicator applet get its icons from the "status" folder of whatever icon theme you're using. However, I've tried changing various status icons for different programs and the changes are never reflected in the indicator applet. Updating the gnome icon cache, rebooting the pc, and removing/readding the indicator applet do nothing. Does the indicator applet have some other secret icon cache that needs to be cleared?
I'm referring to this up in the right, I think its name it's indicator applet (I'm not sure):What I want to do is to remove the chat and mail icon and enable a weather icon. I've googled but I didn't find any helpful answer.
I want to edit (remove some items, especially evolution) from the "Indicator Applet Complete" present in the right top corner. I'm using Natty in classic mode. How can I do this? I do not want the chat, mail and ubuntu one options in my panel.
