Ubuntu :: Minimize/Restore Button Not Working Properly?

Jun 29, 2010

I have just recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a desktop machine (Dell Dimension 4600) and am in the process of becoming familiar with it. So far, I like it. Especially the boot-up speed. I like the users manual also. I notice one thing, though, that doesn't seem to be working right � the three buttons on the right side of the titlebar that close, minimize and maximize the window. The minimize button is supposed to remove the window from the desktop and indicate the minimized window on the bottom panel so that you can click it and restore it. It doesn't work that way in my install. In fact, I cannot minimize and restore the window at all. The three buttons, from left to right, close, reduce/enlarge, and close. I don't think that is normal, is it? And how can I get it to work correctly?

Ubuntu :: The Minimize Button Abends The Program?

Jun 26, 2010

I am running the NBR using the Gnome interface, instead of the default netbook interface, but the problem happens even if I switch back to the default.Whenever I click on the MINIMIZE to desktop [v] button, the program abends (i.e. it disapppears, is NOT visible mimimized to the desktop, nor shows in the task bar or lower panel.The default buttons are in order of placement are:x [close], v (downward pointing arrowhead)[minimize to desktop] and [^ / ] (upward pointing arrowhead / square) [minimize /maximize]. I realise that on a small netbook screen such as my Asus EEE 1000 PC one might easily click on the "close" (x) button my mistake.

However, I UORPOSELY click on the down arrow button, and the current program / window disappears completely. As per my description above, I cannot find the application, so I have to relaunch it from the program menu. If it had been minimized, the system would inform me that the program was already running. Since it does not, it is a safe assumption and statement to say that the application / window / program has abendedMy only workaround is to adjust the maximixe size of the window using the rightmost button (downward arrow head = smaller window, square = fully maximized).

Ubuntu :: Cannot See The Minimize - Restore - Close Icons On Top Right Of The Application?

Apr 11, 2010

recently installed via synaptic some packages about netbook to try the new appearance. Having decided that I didnt like it, I chose to revert, by uninstalling those packagesMy problem now is that on every application I execute, the icons that are usually found on top right of the screen (minimize, maximize and close) cannot be seen and, if I want to shut an application down I must do it via control q or control w depending of the application. I mean every application, be it firefox, opening folders on the hard drive, open officeIt may be that there is still a package I must uninstall.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Rhythmbox Doesn't Minimize To System Tray Or Sound Button

Oct 17, 2010

Whenever I click minimize in rhythm box, it just goes to its own box in the bottom bar like most programs. But when i click the X while music is playing, it keeps playing, but it just disappears. The sound button has no options other than volume, and the only way to bring rhythmbox back up is starting it back up. Why doesn't it minimize to the sound button like its supposed to?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Intel PRO 2100 Not Working - RF Killswitch Button Not Working At All?

Feb 18, 2010

I followed the sticky about setting up wireless and I have come to an issue where the WLAN switch which is on this computer can be pressed, the light comes on, but no WLAN. When I looked in dmesg, this is what I get:

ipw2100: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Connection
firmware: requesting ipw2100-1.3.fw
eth0: Radio is disabled by RF switch.

When running iwconfig wlan0 heres what I get:

home/j-dub # iwconfig eth0
wlan0 unassociated ESSID off/any Nickname:"ipw2100"
Mode:Managed Channel=0 Access Point: Not-Associated


Notice it says that the 'Radio is disabled by switch' in dmesg. I can press that switch until the end of the world comes and it does absolutely nothing but make the WLAN light put on a light show. And it shows the wlan to be unassociated with any clients. So, what are my options to get this Wireless up and working?

Computer/OS info:

Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo M7400
1.4GHz Intel Centrino R
Suse 11.1 KDE

Ubuntu :: Mouse Button No Longer Working

May 19, 2010

I have a 'Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse 3000'. In addition to the regular left/right click and scroll wheel it has an extra button on the side. In previous versions of Ubuntu I was able to remap this button to act as double-click using 'xbindkeys'. However, in Lucid this no longer seems to work. X seems to know about all of the buttons on the mouse since 'xinput' lists the device as having 13 buttons and labels button 8 as 'Button Side'. However, 'xev' does not show a button event when I press the button. Instead it shows:

Ubuntu :: Power Button Not Working In Lubuntu?

Sep 25, 2010

Recently i've switched from ubuntu 8.04 to Lubuntu 10.04, since that time the powerbutton does not work anymore.I've tried to find out how powermanagement is implemented in ubuntu to be able to debug this problem. But most documentation about this topic seems dated.I've already tried a few thing, most important stuff I did is:

- tested the scripts in /etc/acpi/ and added a line to write something to a textfile when its called. But this file is not called when pressing the powerbutton.

- checked bios settings, seems alright (and these settings worked on 8.04 to).
