Ubuntu :: Launchpad Defaults (Chat And Mail Panels) Deleted?
Nov 19, 2010
I was playing around and by mistake I deleted the Chat and Mail panels which are default on the launchpad or whatever the top bar is called (where by default the date and power options/buttons appear). I want to bring it back.
Ladies and Gents, I am new on this forum. I have installed Ubuntu on my box and have been using it for over 2 weeks now. I have been trying to setup G-mail chat or Facebook chat and it just keeps on saying "connecting - Disconnecting" without anything happening.
I've basically gone and messed up my entire desktop. The curious (idiotic) me was experimenting with the desktop, and went and somehow deleted all the panels. After 3 days of frustration, I've been unable to recover any form of menu or panel. So far, I've tried restoring the defaults from the terminal. Unfortunately, I can't open a terminal window. I can run it using Ctrl+Alt+F2, but it refuses to open any windows or run any programs. Most commands give me some form of 'cannot open display.' I can't minimize windows without losing them so my workspace is a mess, I can't run nautilus as root so I can't access Synaptic, and the list basically goes on and on.
I'm on my other computer right now because I stupidly deleted the panels (taskbar).I tried to bring them back, but it leaves a blank space now.Also, I tried going on the internet but it said it's not connected.Clicking the Network Center in the Settings option doesn't respond either.IT: Also, this panel is supposedly from the Xfce. Whenever I try to add something like right click on it, it doesn't respond.
I enjoy the convenience and the simplicity of the mail and chat icons in the GNOME notification bar. But I am not sure I like Empathy; and I certainly prefer Thunderbird to Evolution. Can I use the mail icon to launch Thunderbird, and to be notified of new messages from Thunderbird? Likewise, can I use the mail and chat icons to control and to receive notifications from another IM program like Pidgin?
I installed the Elegant Gnome theme/package and I uninstalled it after about a week of use. Even after reverting back to the ambiance theme, or other themes, I've noticed that some elements of the Elegant Gnome theme have remained (e.g. the panel color and icons in Chrome or after right clicking and the system font).Is there a way to restore the Gnome defaults or Ubuntu system defaults so that everything is as it should be?
Just set up Evolution to get my emails from 1and1.co.uk and hotmail. I ticked the box 'leave on server'.Whilst in the mess of trying to configure two email accounts (using rules and folders), I deleted all my 1and1 emails locally. They remain on the server, but I want them now in my client inbox and Evolution seems to ignore those emails. Is there any way I can refresh evolution, so that it doesn't treat these emails any differently to new ones that I retrieve?
I just finished setting up Evolution Mail. All my e-mails have been downloaded and it's working good.But then I logged in at mail.live.com and I all my mails were gone!I don't want my mails to store in my PC, no one knows when my hard drive will die or when will I do something stupid that leads to the complete anihilation of all my e-mails. I want them back to Windows Live's mail server.
I find that I prefer have both panels located at the screen top. That way I don't have to go to the bottom of the screen for one thing, then back to the top for another. I arranged the panel so the regular top one is on top,then the panel that contains the open applications is underneath.The problem is, when I reboot, the panels lose their order. First, the regular top panel initializes, then the bottom ones starts and pushes the first panel down, which becomes what you see in the picture: I would like to find a way to keep them in the opposite order of what you see in the picture, but every time I reboot they end up in that order.
Is there an option in Evolution to return to the Inbox view after you delete a message, rather than going on to the next message? I cannot find it anywhere.Incidentally, this same question is one of the zero-reply questions: URL...I wonder if this means there is no such feature in Evolution and I should submit some kind of "feature request" at their development site.
i'm currently using the claws mail rssyl plugin to manage my rss feeds, but i have two issues with it:
1) when i delete an rss item it reappears when i refresh the feed 2) when i mark all posts of a feed as read, a little while later (for example) 5 of the 20 items become new/unread again. these unread items are random (not the latest posts)
the only pattern i can see (regarding issue #2) is that it only affects feeds hosted on videos. i'm thinking of finding a different application to manage my rss feeds, but it is nice to have email and feeds in once place.

Is this seriously the ONLY way to report a bug? I can't just fill out a form somewhere without running software to do it? When I try to do it the way explained in the guide, it tells me that I'm using a stable version of Xubuntu, and that only people running dev versions (like 11.10) can report bugs.This seems absurd. Are they saying that all stable releases are perfect in every way? Surely one must be able to report a bug for them...
I searched the forum with various terms and didn't find anything, so my apologies if this is a common and/or newbie problem.It seems that when I have a USB driveplugged in to switch the files around, those that I delete are still taking up space. I first noticed it with a Chinese MP3 player and thought it was the player being crappy. I could still play all the songs that were supposedly gone. Today, I noticed it with a little thumb drive that I've had for years. I plugged it into my husband's computer running winXP, and the files showed up in a weird, unusable form. I was able to delete them for real.
I have a problem with installing ubuntu 11.04 I get this message: Code: Hspell: can't open /usr/share/hspell/Hebrew.wgz.sizes It's get stuck with the updating time from internet servers process but I can't find a way to report it to launchpad.
I've already encountered a couple bugs, and thought it would be nice to be able to report new ones there and/or comment on old ones. But their register button only leads to "Invalid OpenID transaction," and I think that's a bug, and I think I ought to report that over here since I obviously can't register or report it over there.
Is anyone else having trouble...I'm getting a ton of "Failed to fetch..." errors while updating.The site itself is working fine. No news here [URL]. Normally I wouldn't be concerned, however this happened right when I modified my sources so I'm hoping I didn't mess something up.
I always hear 'do NOT install anything from anywhere except the official repositories'. But I find a lot of great apps that are not included in repositories and would like to ask. How actually secure launchpad is? Are the codes reviewed by anyone? How do I make sure that a piece of software is not going to harm my Ubuntu? If I add a PPA for some program I won't going to check it's code every time it updates or am I being too cautious?
I cannot find where to post bugs in the launchpad anymore? What happened to the launchpad? It's sort of goofy that there is no (report a bug) link anywhere. But if you search bugs then you can see a link to the right, but nothing anywhere else. And even then you can only post a bug regarding that same category and subject. So it would appear the launchpad has a bug, or I just can't figure out how to navigate to report a bug.
