Ubuntu Installation :: Panel Transparency Is Lost On Restart?

May 2, 2011

I have had no issue with the panel's transparency in previous Ubuntu versions. This all started w/ Natty. I set up transparency (right click on panel, Nav through Properties > Background, Check "Solid Color," slide bar to my preferred opacity, & click "Close." The panel looks as follows: But when I restart the computer it goes grey:

killall command doesn't work, I have moved the panel, I have created a new one. The "closest" I found were people complaining (back in December) that the theme switched to grey. But I don't think the panel is taking up another theme, it is simply not painting the transparent image.

I didn't like Unity so I disabled it (still installed). I also removed indicator-me and indicator-messenger via synaptic as I have since Lucid Lynx. I removed the black bubble notifications and removed the shutdown/logout/restart confirmation/countdown prompt w/ a couple of code-hacks I found online as I have since Jaunty Jackalope. I also tried to change the opacity though an option inside Compiz's "Opacity, Brightness and Saturation". This also made AWN icons transparent so I undid it. I use the "Glossy P" theme w/ "Snow Apple" icons.

Ubuntu :: Lost Gnome Panel Transparency On Upgrade To 10.04

Jul 25, 2010

I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 10.04 and things went pretty smooth. The only real issue is that I lost the transparency settings for the menu & indicator applets on my top knome panel. I simply don't remember how i did it last time, and i've been searching the net for an hour for a solution with no luck. Many results suggested the use of the Compiz Settings Manager's opacity settings, but that opacity applies to everything, including the text & icons. I thought i used the "gnome color chooser" package to do it last time, but I cannot find the option in the gui. how to make the background of the menu (applications/places/system) and indicator applet have transparent backgrounds while retaining full text/icon brightness?

Ubuntu :: Panel Not Using Transparency Correctly?

Jun 25, 2010

I've been having some trouble getting transparency to work properly on the panels. I've attached a screenshot in which I've got a fully transparent background image applied to the panel, yet the main menu area, status area, and clock are not affected by the background.

I've searched google quit a bit, and all I find are topics saying things like using alt-scroll to make it transparent, but I want all of the icons to remain opaque. Also, people say to use a solid color and adjust the transparency in the properties menu, I've tried all of this, these are obvious.

Ubuntu :: Panel Transparency Doesn't Work?

Apr 30, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, and I'm trying to make my panel semi-transparent.

Unfortunately, the whole thing won't go transparent, only the blank areas without applets!

I know you can hack it in Compiz, but then everything goes transparent, including text and icons, which I don't want.

As you can see from the screenshot, I'm using the Radiance theme, but this also occurs with Ambience.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost My Desktop After Second Restart Of Lucid

May 1, 2010

Working with an old desktop that had been running 8.04 Update failed so I installed from a LiveCD. Dual boot with XP. System runs great off of the CD. After installation of 10.04 and a restart, the system worked well. Tried lots of stuff off the Gnome menus. Restarted and booted XP. That worked too.

On my next restart I selected Ubuntu from the grub menu and the system gave me the sign in requester. I signed in but the desktop never appeared. All I got was the background and a mouse pointer.

Right clicking the mouse brings up a 7 item menu that includes items for creating a folder, creating a file, ....., choose a new background. The menu works. If I click create a file an icon for a new file appears on the screen. Clicking on the icon brings up a window running gedit. Choosing the new background item brings up a window with candidate new backgrounds. I have no idea how to get the gnome desktop back. The sign in screen has a bar at the bottom that shows Gnome is the default session setting. Booting into XP continues to work.

I've tried changing the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT= line in the /etc/default/grub to add nomodeset. That didn't help.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connection Lost After Router Restart

My ISP pushes software updates occasionally to my router. This also forces the router to restart. When the router restarts, my ubuntu box loses its network connection and does not automatically restore it after the router comes back online.How can I configure ubuntu to restore the connection once it is available again? It happens on my windows workstation...I am using ubuntu on a box with no screen / keyboard / mouse it serves as a fileserver and I remote desktop in. Obviously if the box drops the connection it is a major annoyance. I am using version 9.10

Ubuntu :: Firefox Will Not Restart From The Panel Or A Terminal?

Feb 20, 2010

After some use, firefox will not restart from the panel or a terminal. Looking in '.mozilla/firefox' I find:

Quote:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 dave dave 15 2010-02-19 20:55 lock -> 127.0.1.1:+2189

The number at the end changes everytime I remove it. Is this something trying to get in or something trying to get out? Or what? This has been going on for a while.

Ubuntu :: Minimal Install W/LXDE Lost Shutdown / Restart Options

Sep 4, 2010

I'm working on getting a stripped down Ubuntu Lucid installed on an old POS HP PC for a friend. Because it only has 256 MB RAM, I used a minimal CD and the installed lxde as the GUI.Today I was working on it and installed the latest updates and Openoffice-Writer. After rebooting, the shutdown button only gives me Hibernate, Log Out and Cancel. I lost Shut Down and Restart. Searching w/Google shows solutions for other distros such as Arch and Mint, but none that worked for Ubuntu w/LXDE. Either the files to edit don't exist, the groups don't exist (one site said to add the user to the "power" group, no such thing in 'buntu) or the options don't exist (such as System->Administration, which isn't in the menu at all).

HAL and dbus are running, which was the other thing some sites mentioned.So, how do I get the shutdown and restart buttons back? The people that will be getting this machine aren't going to know how to go to a terminal and type "sudo shutdown -h now" everytime they want to shut down.I know the buttons existed before installing the latest updates.

Red Hat / Fedora :: File Based Disks Lost After Restart

Mar 14, 2011

At first I wanna say that I'm (quite) new to Linux and Fedora.Currently I have to use Fedora at school, but I'm running into some problems. To make things faster at school, I'm now trying to do the same thing at home using WMWare virtualbox.Our task is to setup 2 file-based disks using 4 image files and loop-devices. I can create and mount and use and do whatever with them, but after restart they are gone. Also all physical volumes and volume groups I created are gone. I used /etc/fstab to automount them at startup, but it doesnt seem to work.

Ubuntu :: Multiple Screens - Grandr - Settings For Dual Monitors Lost At Restart

Jun 8, 2010

The 'Multiple Screens' tool, aka grandr, is very handy for setting up my dual monitors. But restarting my system restores the monitor setup to the (crummy) default settings. Is there a way to save these settings and make sure they are always applied when the OS boots? Putting these settings in my xorg.conf would be fine, but I'm not sure where or in what form the settings generated by grandr might be located, or if they're at all xorg.conf compatible.

Ubuntu :: Can't Find Lost Panel Applets

May 9, 2010

I was messing around with my monitor settings in Ubuntu 10.04 [The first time when everything worked right away with my system!], and I stupidly deleted all the applets in the upper panel, and now I can't find them anymore. I looked though the applet selection screen, and I couldn't find the sound applet, the all-in-one power off/log out/switch user applet, or the email/chat applet. How do I get these applets back on my top panel?
