After upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04 all of a sudden, the task manager or task bar, keeps changing length. The individual window "buttons" themselves keep changing size - flashing even, and the space between them also changes. It is driving me nuts! The little system tray(?) icons no longer appear in the system tray, but all stacked on top of each other in the top left corner.
Anybody knows how to fix overlapping tasks in KDE system taskbar?Here System Monitor overlaps with digiKamWorkaround to rearrange icons - start any new task.Sorry for taking real photo of the screen. When I do PrintScreen KSnapShot task appears in the list and makes all task to rearrange. The resulting screenshot contains already fixed view.
My file manager keeps on opening in the taskbar and it will not stop, but no application comes up, only in the taskbar. No icons will show up on my desktop either. When I go to open up the file manager, nothing comes up. Even when I try nautilus or sudo nautilus nothing happens. I read on another forum to use gconf-editor and nothing fixed it. What do I do? I need to have my computer fixed for school. I am running Ubuntu x86 64-bit on a HP Pavilion tx2500z laptop.
I run Ubuntu 10.10, recently I got this problem. if I open more than one program, and click on icon of them on task bar to switch between them, KDE crash and restart with log in screen. now since 2-3 days this restart also happening when I ALT+TAB to switch between running programs .
I am using Suse 11.2 with KDE4.3. Unfortunately i deleted the Task Manager on footer by uclicking the "Remove this Task Manager". But i am unable to get it back. It looks really weierd to see monitor withiut that. Formated the PC to get back that task manager.
I just installed SUSE 11.3 on my PC and used KDE desktop. But the default color and style of the task manager bar looks not so good to me. It's a back and gray bar. How to change its color and style? Should I install something else or just do some settings? I look through the system setting but can not find a way. Could you kindly please tell me how to do that?
1.) I have several versions of ubuntu installed on my computer. Technically, all but one are incomplete installs which I would like to delete if possible?
2.) I would like to access my files from the Windows partition, but it doesn't show up under "system." Is it for some reason impossible to access Windows files?
3.) My computer's performance has dipped substantially in the last two days. I am trying to figure out why this is, if there is a task manager or the like or a performance diagnosis tool. Also, my computer does not have an anti-virus program, that might also be the cause of the poor system performance.
I am running Slackware -current and am using kde as my desktop environment. I'm not sure if this is a feature that I turned on my accident or a bug but its really annoying. When I start any program on the computer and it goes into the Task manager bar. If I click the bar to maximize the program or window it goes to the kde log on window. I am running KDE version 4.5.4.
I tried googling but couldnt find the task manager equivalent? Just want to find out how much memory LINUX uses in general as I have been using it for few days and everything seems faster than on vista with no programs freezing! Also on my taskbar, when I click on the time to change it, it doesn't work? I think the timezone is set to US or something but how do i change the timezone?
I'm running Kubuntu 9.10 (Karmic), and my System Monitor (a.k.a. Task Manager) has stopped working. I had been using the graphical version of the app because it was easier and faster for me to deal with. I know that there is a command line solution for this, but I also know it involves having to know the task number of the program I want to kill (I've got a game that I love to play, but only closes cleanly about 10% of the time). I've posted a couple of screen shots to show the errors... The first one is the error message itself (I have to hit 'OK' on this twice to clear it), and the second one is the resulting empty window of the System Monitor
I'm trying to key information into an OpenOffice spreadsheet that is being viewed in another application, typically Firefox. Both windows are sized such that they fit on the screen at the same time. Prior to a week or so ago, this was very straight forward. Now when I click on an app in the Task Manager after opening OpenOffice, other open apps are minimized - sometimes all of them, sometimes just the most recent. I usually have Dolphin, a terminal window, Firefox, OpenOffice and sometimes a spreadsheet open. A friend who is far more familiar with Linux than I, suggested that the memory manager may have gotten confused and that logging out should clear this up. I tried that to no avail, as well as rebooting. I've also looked through the options in each of the apps that I've got open to see if there's any obvious user options that might be affecting this. I've found nothing.
My wireless works without issue with network manager. However I notice that it seems to be a gui only app. That is, when I stop the display manager my laptop loses internet connectivity. The NetworkManager service is still running. Is there a commandline method of using the NetworkManager settings to start the wireless connetion?
How do you launch a task from a terminal command line interface and it not be kill'ed if you close the terminal window. Like if I run jedit I type jedit & which launches jedit as a backgorund task. But, if I close terminal window, jedit dies to. How do I laucnch jedit and completely divorce it from the terminal task?
Looking for console based calendar / time manager (or backend)? Well is there a good one to be known? Maybe else than 'when'? Joe Barr has written a nice intro to the program in his column at linux. [URL]. Is there some backend and frontend that could be used? Or alternatively, could it be possible to have them on an Kerberos/Ldap system or exchange server? What are the best and multiplatform single cal database possibility?
I have my task list in evolution (mainly so it can sync with my phone and online task list) but I always forget to look at the task list. Is there an application or plugin which periodically displays the contents of the tasklist or even better, it briefly displays the most urgent/important tasks when I login? Or anything else which automatically displays the most important tasks. Currently I have to open the task list and look at them (which I usually forget). I do not mean some kind of alarm when the task is due but more a daily reminder of what to do.
How can I start a program from tty1 console text mode to be executed in tty2 console text mode? Actualy I would like to start a program (chat client cli program) in tty8 automaticaly when linux PC boots.
For some reason randomly my task bar messes up for some reason. Im not sure if many other people have this. but ill provide a picture so you can see it. Some times its even worse, like i get a double account name and double of everything else.
I don't know what I have done this time, but on my desktop I have the cube effect, which is working fine. But now when I minimize a page it goes to the opposite end of the taskbar instead of to the workspaces I have.Using Ubuntu 10.04. Not sure if I have explained this properly. Also when I flip the cube to a clean desktop and open a new browser, it doesn't open on that side of cube , but reverts to original workspace and opens in a new tab there.
