Ubuntu :: Mozilla Covering Up Desktop Panels?

May 13, 2010

A bit of 411: Ubuntu 8.04 running Mozilla 3.0.19 and have not changed any settings (that I know of), no new hardware, and no updates prior to issue.

When I open Mozilla, it expands to the full screen and covers my Ubuntu Panels (Applications, Places, System, Time). I can get them to pop back to the top if I make a selection on the Mozilla [File] if the selection opens a new GUI. If it doesn't open a new GUI, whatever I click on is also hidden under Mozilla (usually stuff that appears in my lower Ubuntu panel)

Ubuntu :: Frozen Desktop Gray Panels?

Jan 27, 2010

I am really hoping this is an easy fix. Somehow, on my gnome desktop, my panels overlapped one another. I was dragging and dropping files into folders and unintentionally grabbed the smaller bar and dragged it over my larger application bar.Now, when I rebooted, all I see is my desktop. I don't use icons so I have none of those. The panels are completely gray. every once in a while I will see my trash bin flashing. I am unable to right click the desktop and I am unable to use Alt+F2 for my term.I can still use CTRL+ALT+ F1,F2,F3,F4... to get my non GUI terms. I have tried killall gnome-panelstill nothing.

This is a little... odd to me... a simple click renders an entire OS useless. I would really like to avoid uninstalling and reinstalling because that would just be something you would do with a microsoft product.Edit: Everyone in a while I can right click the desktop and I get the provided menu but that does nothing for me. Also, my hard drive is constantly 'thinking' I am assuming it is stuck trying to complete the gnome environment settings... I am not sure. Oh, I have also tried removing gnome-panel and ubuntu-desktop and reinstalling those.

As a option I entered in the terminal command: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop After pressing enter it asked for my password but it won't let me type it in? So is the desktop installed and running in the back ground and is that why I can't type in my password?

Ubuntu :: Adding Too Many Desktop Panels Broke Gnome?

Jan 22, 2010

Upon adding a 7th desktop panel (don't ask... or well, do if you want to and I'll explain), Gnome froze up on me and I had to reset the computer. Now I can't login to either a regular or a failsafe desktop without it freezing on me before even reaching the desktop. So the obvious question is, how do I delete superfluous panels from the terminal? I reckon it can't be that hard if you know how - which I don't.I'd appreciate any help on this, since in the meantime I will have to choose Windows 7 in the Grub menu, and who wants to do that if you can avoid it??By the way, how many panels can one reasonably have in Gnome? Already when I had 5, the autohide feature started acting up on the last panel added

Ubuntu :: Desktop And Gnome Panels Won't Keep Still When Switching Viewports In 11.04 / Fix It?

When I switch viewports in 11.04, the gnome panels, desktop and stickied windows slide when they would stay put in 10.10. How do I change back to the previous behaviour? I'm using Ubuntu Classic (Gnome 2) and love that Compiz didn't carry over my settings during the upgrade.

Ubuntu Installation :: Stuck On Desktop After Boot - No Panels / Resolve This?

Feb 22, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop and it was running all smoothly, but all of a sudden when i booted, the only thing i could see were the desktop wallpaper and mouse icon, no panels, no shortcuts, nothing, meaning i can do pretty much nothing, i can move the mouse but can't click anything, the last thing i did was download and goof around with compiz and i was too happy because it worked and looked really great, even though i didn't want to activate restricted drivers for my ATI video chipset, but again, it was working cool and then boom, only wallpaper and mouse, nothing more

Ubuntu :: Deleted All Desktop Menus / Panels - Cannot Open Terminal

Apr 30, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Two Panels At Screen Top - Panels Lose Order On Reboot

May 12, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mozilla And .mozilla-thunderbird Profiles When Upgrading To 10.04?

May 24, 2010

I have been doing periodic net-based dist upgrade since 7.10. Currently I use 9.10. Now that 10.04 is out, I want to upgrade to the latest LTS version by doing a clean install, instead of using net-based dist-upgrade.

Since I use Firefox, and Thunderbird, I want to keep the passwords/bookmarks I have stored in firefox, and mail/account settings (for multiple email accounts) that are in Thunderbird.

While I know I can copy the hidden profile directories for each, and back them up for recovery after the upgrade by copying them into the new 10.04 after install is complete, I don't know if this is recommended, prudent, or if pitfalls await me. Since I want to do a clean install, and, since 10.04 uses different versions of both Thunderbird and Firefox,

1. Would it be prudent to back up/use the existing profiles I have in 9.10, or should I bite the bullet and just start fresh with new profile setups when I finish installing 10.04? 2. Are there any pitfalls I need to be aware of if I will be restoring a profile of each from 9.10?

3. Or, should I continue to do net-based dist-upgrades to 10.04 so appropriate profile changes can be made by the new versions of Thunderbird/Firefox software?

Fedora Installation :: Exchanging Hard Drive Between Computers - No Icons On Desktop And No Panels

Nov 4, 2009

I recently upgraded my computer and tried using same hard-drive in new one. Fedora 11 booted and allowed me to log-in. But system is un-usable as there are no Icons on desktop and no panels. While I know that initial installation is based on hardware profile of previous computer, is there any work-around to make it work without having to install fresh. Also, If I choose option "replace previous Linus version" from LiveCD, will that preserve my personal data and settings?

Ubuntu :: Can Use To Burn CD's Covering Everything From Data To Music?

Apr 29, 2010

I'm running UbuntuStudio 9.1 on my Toshiba Satellite laptop, and all other aspects of the operating system and software are fantastic - absolutely love it!I am having a serious problem with Brassero though for recording to CD. I can erase any of my re-writable cd's just fine using it, but when it comes to trying to burn a cd with it - Brassero goes through all the motions of putting the info onto CD, finalizing and then briefly displays the box saying "completed" but then immediately goes into "creating image checksum" and keeps busy doing that into forever - last time I stopped it after 35 minutes! that's absurd.

Maybe it's because the laptop has a CD/DVD combo drive, not sure, but I need CD burning software, and that is for sure.Can someone recommend a different software package that I can use to burn CD's covering everything from data to music?(or possibly help me fix whatever is wrong with Brassero?)

OpenSUSE Install :: Home" Partition On The 11gb, Covering Only 10gb On The Beginning Of The Drive?

Jun 22, 2010

i have 2 harddrives. a 6gb and an 11gb. IDE ATA. i want to install opensuse 11.2 on them, using EXT4, in a different way this time. i want the "/" partition to cover all of the 6gb, with the drive set to master. For the slave, I want the "/home" partition on the 11gb, covering only 10gb on the beginning of the drive, and i want the swap space partition on the end of the drive using 1gb. Is this a smart way to install it? Will i have to continuously mount the drive with home and swap on it? What is the best configuration for using these two drives?

Ubuntu :: All Panels Have Gone Away

Feb 11, 2010

I manipulated the two pannels, making them to automatically hide, then changing one of them to the upper side...

Suddenly it stopped working, I could not complete the change, and on the next restart no panel show up!

I guess I need to reset the configuration of gnome-panel or something, but I have no idea how to do so.

Ubuntu :: How To Add Panels If There Are None

Mar 5, 2010

I followed the instructions in this guide to get the plasma workspace without having to migrate to kde:http://digitizor.com/2010/01/01/how-...28Digitizor%29All went well, I was able to complete all the steps in the guide, and I double clicked the "plasma workspace.sh" and it launched the plasma workspace fine.Then I tried using the gnome-desktop.sh the same way, but it just started the gnome desktop and quickly reverted to the plasma workspace. So I looked at the commands in the plasma.sh and the gnome.sh, and the commands on the guide page, and noticed they were the same for both shell scripts. So I changed the gnome desktop.sh from:

killall fusion-icon
killall gnome-panel
