Ubuntu 10.04 I removed the Me Menu from the panel and then put it back (right click -> Add to Panel -> Indicator Applet Session). The Me Menu came back, but my name is not on the panel. When the Me Menu came back it was just a small blank on the panel next to the Power Button. There was no name, no icon, no nothing to tell me that was the Me Menu. In fact, I only accidentally found it when I happened to click in that blank space. I checked to see if there was any sort of Preferences setting for the Me Menu so I could get it to display my name for me to click on (like it did before), but could not see a setting like that. How can I make the Me Menu to be more visible than just a blank spot on the panel?
i am having a problem on Ubuntu 10.10. In system menu, there is no Administration or Preferences menu.Also, application menu does not show anything. I am using Ubuntu since 2 weeks and still not used to to the terminal commands for running applications and admin tools.

So i restarted and chose recovery mode. it also reported some errors and tried to fix the problem. it deleted some files i think. and my system is working again but with above mentioned problem.
New to 10.04, not to Ubuntu. Fresh install of 10.04, recommended proprietary nVidia driver installed because text rendering in Firefox is terribly with the 'standard' non-proprietary driver.Also new to Vodafone / Huawei modems. My previous experience with a Vodafone modem (type unknown) was with 9.04 when I helped my daughter-in-law fixing her Windows computer. It worked out of the box from the live CD and she is now a happy Ubuntu user
Optimistically, I recently bought a Vodafone K3765 modem as backup for my standard internet connection. I eventually got that to work after installing the USB mode switcher. So no it works out-of-the-box experience here Problem:The network manager (I assume that is what it is called; little antenna with signal strength indicator is not visible in the panel (right top). It is there but it's only one pixel or so wide (at occasion a one pixel wide vertical line occurs at the position where it is supposed to be). So when I want to connect I have to click a number of times in the panel till I hit it and the menu shows. Once it is visible, it will stay visible till the user logs off.
I have had a bit of experience with previous distros but I am pretty much a newbie. So I setup 10.04 but I can't get my net to connect. It's working fine on Win7 (posting from it). It's a dsl connection. I use an ethernet wire to connect to the net.
I opened terminal and used the 'sudo pppoeconf' command and followed the instructions. This is how I used to get my net working on previous distros but it dosen't seem to work in 10.04. The terminal says that my connection is active but it isn't. The network manager icon isn't visible on the top panel.
I have Compiz and two panels - one at the bottom and on the side. Before running Compiz, both of them become visible on mouse hover. After Compiz starts, the one on the side would not show. I have no idea what is causing it. Could it be the cube?
i stalled ubuntu 11.04 , i am following some tutorials in order to learn ubuntu. I noticed that the top menu is not visible in ubuntu 11.04. How to get it back. i found this article in internet. will this work [URL]
When I run a slide show (F5), the Gnome panel is shown in the screen. Sometimes it is hidden below the slide show, but usually the panel is shown. How do I make it hidden during a slide show or is this some kind of bug? Did not find anything on google. Open Office 3.1.1 (Build:9420) Gnome panel 2.26.0
I am using 10.4, and an NVIDIA 5500 video card, two screens....
I have a problem with the Panel, top and bottom. It only shows on the main screen. When I set-up it showed on both, right across, was beautiful. I was quite happy to live with the shrunk down version until I noticed two things:
1. If an app or document is in the second screen (in this case the left) then it does not show up on the panel, until I drag it to the primary (right) screen.
2. Documents open in the secondary screen in full screen mode have a "white out" banner (which I assume is the hidden Panel) across the top and bottom ribbons. This is a BIG problem, because it means there is no access to the Max, Min, Close and drag facilities, and as it is not visible in the Panel that is showing, read 1 above, then it just sits there.
Screen shot enclosed. Not the min, max on this are the doc, not the ap... But you can see the blank Panel.
Applications working properly with SUDO only UBUNTU Noteboox 10.10 XUBUNTU I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick notebook version on my HP Compaq nc6400 (Intel core2 CPU T5600@1.83GHZ). Later installed Xfce4. So, I am now on Xubuntu on top of Ubuntu (it seems).Coming to my problem, even though application working fine normally, Menu is not displayed in most of the applications. Ex: Transmission, GIMP, Mousepad, Pinta, gedit ........ No application shows the file,edit.. menus.
Also file sharing is also not possible in normal mode. When I right click on any folder or file sharing option is not visible. But if I run these applications with SUDO the menus are appearing. When I open nautilus with SUDO , I am able to get sharing options in right click. I tried the below command as advised in thread.php?p=6474144 But it failed
I installed the Global Menu Bar applet for my top panel, thus removing the menu bar from most, if not, all of my apps on Ubuntu. I removed the applet, mainly because of how God-Awful and inconvenient it was. Now, I don't have any menu bars on my apps!
Menu sometimes will stay visible on the desktop or on top of other windows after selecting them. To fix it I normally log out then log back in. Its been doing it for a few weeks. I install lots of eye candy/themes etc and have Avant, docky and cario-dock and think it be may some eye candy I installed, not sure. I have a ATI graphics card thats been tested by the distro.Using the latest 10.10 as I update security and recommended updates via update manager.
The problem I am facing is the left menu launch bar is not appearing when I startup my machine. The top and bottom menus appear after running gnome-panel in a terminal, but it does not fix the left had side launchbar.If i click in the area where the launch bar is I can start some applications, and sometimes the bar will flash ever so briefly.I am really excited to move away from Microsoft, but I wont be able to until this last piece of the puzzle is fixed.My system details are as follows:

I have a problem with eclipse and naultis and some other applications that the menu bar(File Edit View) is not visible. I actually bfore getting this issue I try to modify using gconf-editor and installed some themes for gnome.
I have a clean install of openSUSE 11.4 64 bit using gnome as the desktop manager. When selecting applications from the gnome menu, randomly the application will appear to not launch. However, if I click anywhere in left, upper portion of my desktop it becomes obvious that the application has launched and is not visible. For example, yast will not appear but clicking in that portion of my desktop causes various windows to appear that correspond to the different options in the yast home screen.
I have Opensuse 11.2 installed (on hd0 at the time of installation) To install Windows 7 alongside I had to switch my hard drives (hd0 became hd1 and vice versa) What is the best approach to reinstall grub and get both Opensuse and Win7 visible in the grub menu?
I'm trying to change the icon on my custom main menu on Ubuntu 10.10 doing this> sudo gconf-editor apps/panel/default_setup/objects/menu_bar.I gave object_type menu-object and custom_icon path as /home/ john/Pictures/menu.png then I checked use_custom_icon but with no luck (notice that I've succeed doing this in a virtual machine with the exact settings)Also I want to have icons on places and system, so I did thisdesktop/gnome/interface and clicked menus_have_icons.what I'm missing?
I'm a bit of a newbie, so here is a newbie questionHow do i change my desktop menu, so that it becomes drop-down panels in the top instead of a menu on the left-hand side?I need the answer carved out in stone in order to understand
I've just installed the xubuntu GUI on my ubuntu server and by default I only see Applications and Places on my top panel. There is no option to add the system menu under "Add new items", so I'm curious as to how to go about it.
On a side note, is there a way I can have the system boot into the original command prompt by default, and how can I enable and disable the GUI at my convenience?
I removed the panel that had two icons, because I only wanted to delete one of them. It was in the rightmost upper corner. It had an icon with chat related stuff, ubuntu one, etc. The 2nd icon had logout, shutdown, etc. I want that icon back. But I can't find it in the add to panel menu. Before removing the icon I checked its about message, and I think it was called the "about panel." But there is nothing resulting from a search for about in the panel menu.
I tried the ubuntu 11.04, the desktop is different from the gnome,I want to customize the top menu, for example, adding a button to close it or auto hide it? In gnome I just need to right-click to get the preferences
Last week I dropped my keyboard, came back about an hour later, and without realizing the keyboard was on the ground hitting a random button I went to add a bookmark to my menu panel(I think that's what it's called). An unknown amount of the selected bookmark then posted to my menu panel and now i am not even able to select my Applications, Places, or System options without the bookmarked task opening. Is there anyway of clearing out that entire menu panel and having a fresh start?
EDIT: All I did was delete the .gtk-bookmarks file and restart the computer. There were still alot of theme on the panel but i was able to delete them and everything returned to normal.
I'm running Comsol 4.0 and in Unity the top Panel is supposed to have the menu items of the focused application, however Unity does not create them for Comsol. Notice the two pictures below, one running Comsol in Unity, the other one running in Gnome 2.32. Where my File>Edit>Options>Help at Unity
I have found some info on how to let apps put their icons in the notification panel. This involves using dconf-tools to whitelist some apps in the com.canonical.Unity.Panel gsetting. Firstly, I'm using ubuntu classic, not unity. I assume the above would still apply for my notification panel settings? Anyway, that is not my question. What I am wondering, The messaging icon in that panel, when you click it, you see things like "Setup Chat", "Setup Mail" etc. I don't plan on using empathy or evolution. In fact, I've uninstall them both and installed Pidgin instead. Is there a way to edit that messaging menu to either remove those 2 options at the top that are useless to me, or have them look at other IM/email clients instead of the ones they are expecting to invoke. E.g. "Setup Chat" is irrelevant, as I have already set it up. Since I don't have empathy installed anymore, clicking that option has no effect.
