I just installed 10.04 and configured my Radeon 5570 to span my desktop across a pair of identical1600 x 1200 monitorsng the proprietary drivers (and Catalyst Control Center)After doing this I seem to have lost my previous panel configurations that included the Software, Administration and Preferences menu from previous desktop configuration.I am attempting to add the menus back but I cannot find an option to actually "add a menu"... only icon shortcuts to specific applications/utilities
I'm newbie to Ubuntu, I have found that under System > Administration > Services options is missing. Also Networking option is missing.The Ubuntu Version : Ubuntu 9.10 - the Karmic Koala - released in October 2009
Well like the title Implies, In my Administration menu in Gnome I don't have a "Printing" option. So I can't search for/install printers right now.I'm running 10.04 Server. I installed the gnome-desktop-environment package to get a GUI up and running for manipulating the filesystem, But not all the menu's I was expecting appeared. Is this because I used the gnome-desktop-environment instead of the ubuntu-desktop-environment package? ecause I have two PC's setup next to each other. One using the ubuntu-desktop-environment, and one using the gnome-desktop-environment package and the two desktops are clearly different.All I want to know is how to add the Printers menu to my PC running the gnome-desktop-environment package. I already looked at gconf-editor and the printing menu isn't hidden or anything, it's just not there. And me being a new user to Linux, I don't know how else to get to those printer abilities without the GUI
just recently upgraded to 10.04. After the upgrade I noticed that certain Administration menu items are msising. I can't find the "Hardware Drivers" tool. Is there a way to reinstall to put the complete files and correct the menu items, etc.?
In trying to fix issues I have been having with my display, I seem to have inadvertently removed all applications from my menu, which is rather annoying. I'm not sure how. I've attached a couple of screenshots to display this.
When trying to access the 'Main Menu' option from the Gnome Control Center, I get the following error in the command line:
Code: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/alacarte", line 36, in <module> main() File "/usr/bin/alacarte", line 32, in main app = MainWindow(datadir, version, sys.argv)
my problem is that the Applications menu is empty and Preferences and Administration no longer appear under the System menu.I'm running 11.04 and I use Ubuntu Classic because I prefer the GNOME interface. The other day I was trying out various audio/multimedia players so I was installing and uninstalling several programs with the Software Center.
I started to play a CD in Audacious when the system crashed. The screen went dark but the computer kept running. I ended up doing a hard reset. Everything booted up normally and everything seems to run fine except my GNOME menu is messed up. The Applications menu is empty and Preferences and Administration no longer appear under the System menu. (I realize I can get to these through System Settings but I want the menus back) Furthermore alacarte will not run so that I can edit the menu contents.
I've tried using one of the old menu versions in /home/dan/.config/menus but they are all outdated and I cannot edit them. It also doesn't bring back Preferences and Administration.I've tried reinstalling alacarte and that doesn't do anything.I've tried using other panel programs like Docky and AWN but I have the same menu problem.I also tried resetting the panels to defaults but that doesn't fix the problem.
All of a sudden all my drop-down menus in the upper left dissapeared (things like system, applications, bookmarks, etc.) though buttons/shortcuts and clock, etc. are still there though oddly spaced out.
There is a plethora of apps in the Debian distro -great stuff! Problem is, there is too much to display efficiently in the menus system as currently deployed. I'm thinking particularly of the Science section. Is there a way to rearrange the menus, so that there are sub-menus, such as Astronomy,Biology, Chemistry, Physics etc?
ubuntu 10.04, ff 3.6.3 with some addons installed.
how to reproduce: open firefox, download and install some plugins/addons that generate menu entries with an icon in front of them. e.g. "downthemall" (down them all)
there is however space for these icons in the menu. and I can see icons in the bookmark and history menus. (web page favicons)
these icons improve the usability greatly because they offer a visual guide to the menu not only to the item they belong to but also to other items because I know that the item I want is e.g. one above the green triangle.
I have a slightly impaired vision so this a far greater issue to me than you well sighted folks may think. Just put on some glasses with lots of fingerprints on them and you will see the difference.
In F11 the administration menu had more things in it IIRC. Seems that in F12 a lot of tools are missing.Specifically the SELinux config tool is missing, but getting the rest of the menu back would be nice. I can't remember what it had but I'm sure I'll need them at some point.
I have 11.04 installed, Gnome 2.32.0 - life has been good until I responded as normal to the update manager this morning. Upon reboot noticed my main menu, system menu and places menu are gone. Other icons and stuff like power button remain on the top toolbar but again, no menus.Googling around I found solutions that were years old and/or did not work for me (like installing XFCE - which did nothing).
I have fedora 12 and I tried to change the screen resolution under the system menu to a higher one and it changed but now I dont have any menus and I'm not sure if I can use quick keys to go back to the display preferences to reset the screen resolution. Is there anyway I could run the display preferences by running a command in the bash shell or is there a quick key that allows menu access.
I have upgraded a previous partial installation of karmic up to lucid. When I go to System->Administration there is no "Hardware Drivers" link. What should I apt-get install to get the Hardware Drivers link.
I actually have no idea what the cause of this problem could be, but all my GTK programs don't display a menubar O.o
For example, the main menu of gedit with File, Edit, Help etc is just not there. I usually keep the menu hidden in the terminal, but checking the 'Show Menubar' option doesnt bring it back. Rhythmbox as well.
I'm finding that some applications (2 thus far) are not properly displaying text. I first noticed it in Firefox, where it appears that NO text is being rendered because the search and "feeling lucky" buttons are both about 1.5 characters wide and blank inside. I'll include screen-caps below to exemplify what I mean. In addition to Firefox, I just tonight noticed that my PDF reader is apparently rendering all text in white (even though the same PDF opens up fine with black text on my Windows desktop computer). For the PDF's, I can see that there is text there because I can do a Ctrl+A and copy, and then when I paste it into gedit I can see all the text.
Some background: I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit w/gnome. The first thing I did after installing Ubuntu was to install the BlackBuntu theme by copying appropriate files from /usr/share/ from the BlackBuntu live USB.
What I've tried: I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox a couple of times, but ultimately I just installed Chromium which is working fine and is not experiencing the same issue that Firefox is. I've tried changing my theme back to default, changing all the fonts (under Appearance Preferences), and nothing is fixing this. I'm about to just do a full reinstall of the OS, paying careful attention to at exactly what point in my process everything gets screwed up, but I'm hoping that someone has an idea that I can try before I have to reinstall the system.
I have downloaded a couple of software packages from the ubuntu software center and they are not showing up in the applications menu on top, I have no idea where on the hard drive it stores them so I can find them manually and place a shortcut in the applications menu.
I run a OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with Gnome & KDE desktop. When I run my Gnome desktop all my KDE applications are missing their usr/share/icons/hicolor/48*48/apps/nameofapplication.png picture. The KDE applications work, and when I go to that destination file the png. picture is present. When I run a KDE environment, my KDE applications (that are missing in Gnome) have their icon 48*48 picture. Any idea why when running the Gnome environment, there is a missing path to the png. file for only the KDE applications?
I decided to switch from chrome back to iceweasel as my default browser. However, when I try to do that (as I used to) via Details -> Default Applications -> Web, iceweasel is not listed as choice.I tried to do it then from the shell with
well i suppose this makes the problem ever more complex because i'm acutally attempting to make a cross compile tool chain from amd64 to arm.i've successfully built binutils and configured the kernel headers. now i'm stuck on gcci'm running Code: sudo make -j 4 when i get the issue (the -j 4 if you don't know helps speed up the process considerably by using more threads)
anyways it tells me: Code: make: Entering directory `/home/alex/tmp/gcc-4.4.5/arm-linux/libgcc' Makefile:143: ../.././gcc/libgcc.mvars: No such file or directory make: *** No rule to make target `../.././gcc/libgcc.mvars'. Stop.
=> "Automatically remember running applications when logging out" is no longer existing because of bugs with multiple sessions. Is there a way to enforce this option, even if it is bugged with multiple sessions? My system has only 1 user and I miss so much this feature.
Only "Favourites", "Run Command" and "Leave" is shown on the classic KDE menu, same thing when switching to Launcher Menu Style. Missing Applications and everything else. File associations is not working. Double clicking any type of file it asks to install the program and the known applications menu is empty.
I tried to add a new user, same problem with that. I also noticed that when running Chrome it asks to be the default web browser each time even when I say yes.
I have not been messing with anything, I suspect it happened during a update, but I got the exact same repositories on 2 other x64 machines where there is no problem.
I'm using KDE 4.6.0 from the factory repository.
I tried to reinstall some KDE4 packages without any luck.
I do not want to reinstall the entire system or downgrade KDE.
I am trying to find a way to rename the "Applications" "Places" and "System" menus to something shorter (Apps, GoTo, Sys). I came across this: [URL] But it didn't work: all it did was to make my Notification Area disappear.
I haven't used Ubuntu for a while, and just reinstalled it. I have one major dislike about the new version, There are several applications I click on and it takes me to the installer.How do I remove those types of applications or just install them all?
I feel shy asking this question but, 90% of the applications I install in Ubuntu (last release), do not show up later on in the applications menu, so I cant run them. I know it seems silly, but I can't find the way to handle this inconvenience. Is there a place (like Start> All programs in Windows), were I could find and run all the programs I install?
