Ubuntu :: Maverick First Look: Strange Colors?

Oct 10, 2010

About an hour ago I completed the Network upgrade to Maverick from Lucid. Immediately I see some changes over Lucid: my computer can now hibernate successfully, a feature that worked in Hardy, but was broken in Karmic and Lucid. But a small annoyance is the strange colors. There is an abundance of purple colors in icons, in links, in indicators. I have attached a small snapshot of my browser. The circled purple area should be blue in normal contions.

Ubuntu :: Firefox 4 Strange PNG Colors Since 11.04?

May 2, 2011

I upgraded to Ubuntu to 11.04, but when I now open firefox and go to localhost, some PNG images have really strange colors. This is not the case when I display the webpage in Google Chrome. I'm not sure if I will have similar problems with all PNG's, but I wouldn't be surprised. For instance, a random PNG in Firefox 4:

And the same image in Chrome: What could be the problem? How do I solve this? This only seems to hapen with alpha transparent images!

Ubuntu :: Font Colors In Maverick - Invisible Text

Jan 18, 2011

I'm having trouble with font colors in maverick. Some pages with ordinary text do not display properly, i.e. - text is invisible. It highlights a bit when I highlight it with ctrl + a, but that's about it. I've tried editing Firefox fonts (not working), editing system fonts (not working) and disabling compiz special effects (not working). I figured that maybe there's some corruption somewhere as I've installed loads of stuff in the past months and so should reinstall fonts, but couldn't find info on the net on how to achieve this.

Ubuntu :: Customize Colors For One Application Only?

May 10, 2010

I was wondering if it is possible to specify a custom color theme that Ubuntu should apply to one application only. Specifically, I want to customize the tooltop color for Eclipse.

Fwiw, the reason I want to do this is that karmic's ambiance theme provides black tooltip backgrounds with white tooltop text, but eclipse (stupidly) uses the black tooltip background for content assist boxes while ignoring the tooptip text color and instead applying its own sytnax highlighting rules, which specify black text. This results in black text on a black background -- ugh!

Ubuntu :: Set Colors To Be Editable In Terminal?

Jun 22, 2011

I am trying to use the ncurses library for a little side project and am currently trying to display text with varying colors on the screen. I would like for my program to be able to change the hues of the default colors(e.g. make red a little dark, blue a little lighter, etc).

However, according to the ncurses function can_change_color() my terminal does not allow for colors to be altered. I know how to change the palette of colors that my terminal is using but I was wondering if there was a way to allow my colors to be "editable" in a sense.

My terminal is Gnome 2.30.2 and I'm running Ubuntu 10.04LTS

Ubuntu :: How To Install Conky-colors 7.0

Aug 9, 2011

I'm getting very frustrated and confused with conky-colors. I was reading OMGubuntu, and saw that Conky Colors 7 had been release and it looked pretty [URL]pt to install it from that page, but got hopelessly confused. I would really just like some step by step, noob friendly instructions. I managed to do these first two steps though:"$sudo apt-get install aptitude python-keyring python-statgrab ttf-ubuntu-font-family hddtemp curl lm-sensors conky-all
$sudo chmod u+s /usr/sbin/hddtemp"

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Colors Are Off?

Sep 1, 2011

I noticed as I was watching a video that the colors are totally off. I don't have any problems with the Monitor or the display of websites, it's only videos that aren't displayed correctly. Could that be due to the graphic card? I thought about updating the drivers but since I did that when I installed Ubuntu and had the problem from the beginning I wonder what it could be.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVDs Playback With Odd Colors

Jan 30, 2010

I recently upgraded my girlfriend laptop to 9.10 and now, for some odd reason, when she plays DVDs on her laptop (the most recent attempt was the latest Harry Potter movie) the movie would play back fine but the colors for everything were way off. I've re-added the medibuntu software sources to her system and applied all available updates but it didn't help.

This problem did not occur on my own computer when attempting to play the exact same DVD.

Ubuntu :: Weak Colors In Text Areas / Fix It?

May 24, 2010

I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 and now the colors are off. I tried different themes which made some of the tabs more readable, but I don't see how to fix it. Things like background colors in Firefox are too light to see. The same for the grid lines in OpenOffice.org Spreadsheets. Form fields are not outlined. If you don't know where they are you have to hunt by dragging the pointer over the area.
Images look OK.
Does this sound like something others have seen?

Ubuntu :: Nautilus - How To Change Colors Used On Scroll Bar

May 29, 2010

In 10.04 Lucid my Nautilus scroll bars are white. The scroll bar slider (the icon that can be moved up and down with the cursor to scroll the window) is the exact same shade of white and the slider outline is pale grey. The lack of color contrast makes the slider hard to see. Is there a preference item somewhere that lets me change this color scheme?

I expected to find it in System >> Preferences >> Appearance >> Theme but I don't think there's anything there about the scroll bars. I think my monitor might be more contrasty than most, which is probably exacerbating the problem, but this is what I have to work with. I would rather fix it by changing a system setting than replacing the monitor.

Ubuntu :: Background Colors In Panel Apps?

Jul 23, 2010

Alright, this has been driving me bonkers for months now and I can't find the answer anywhere. I like the custom theme options with standard gnome just fine, plenty of adjustments that can be made, with only one adjustment missing which would create perfection (at least in my opinion).

How on earth is it possible to change the backgrounds of the "mini-panels" which are always grey by default? No matter which Theme I choose and customize, I can never get the background color of the time/date applet, monitors, evolution, garbage can, and so on to change. I'd like to make all of the backgrounds transparent, not just the main panels that contain the other stuff. Is this even possible, and if so, how?I'm assuming since all of those apps have the same default color that an adjustment "wherever" would then change those default colors on all of the applets (hopefully).

Ubuntu :: Different Colors Displayed For Symbolic Links?

Nov 14, 2010

I am having trouble with virtual hosts. The system is not recognizing their existence. In the process of trying to determine the problem (when I do a command of "ls -l" for the sites enabled folder) I noticed that the new symbolic links for the two sites in question show the directories and files linked to in green. The one link that does work (the default link set up with the system install) is in white.

Is there any significance attached to the colors? I would think they should be the same as the working one.

Ubuntu :: Missing Background Colors / Get Those Back?

Nov 29, 2010

I have version 10.10 installed on both a desktop and a laptop. They are both close in how I setup the themes etc. However on the desktop I notice that I am missing some of the background colors on windows and in some websites. It seems to be anything using a blue/gray color. And it is White. It is noticeable on my Firefox on the laptop the borders around everything is gray, but on the desktop these are white. This seems to be not limited to the browser, as I investigated it is on all apps. I have googled this but cannot find a similar situation. I am also new to Ubuntu/Linux, which adds to my dilemma.

I have a strange problem with the console settings on my command line-only system (10.04, installed via alternate). For my account, I don't seem to have color for my directories enabled. It all shows green whatever the file or directory is. When I log in or sudo as another user, the colors appear fine. I have tried copying .bashrc from another account, but still no go. The output of "dircolors -p" from my account and the other account are also the same.
