Ubuntu Multimedia :: Banshee No Longer Appears In Panel (Natty)?
May 6, 2011
Before upgrading to Natty I used to have a Banshee icon in my panel when the application was open - I could close the program but it would just minimize to the panel. Now when I open Banshee there is no icon in the panel. I checked the preferences menu to see if I could change this setting, but didn't see anything there.
Since I upgraded my kernel to 2.6.31-18 I have been experiencing problems with my sound. 2.6.31-18 sound problems with nvidia MCP72XE/MCP72P/MCP78U/MCP78SThe laptop speakers no longer shut off when plugging in headphones. My sound control applet no longer appears in the panel. When launching a sound application sound starts off real loud for a second and then changes to much quieter. I have had this laptop since Hardy with never any sound issues. I do not know if it is the kernel upgrade or the accompanying backports modules. Could be neither for all I know and it just started around that time and is a coincidence.
Here is what was installed: Installed the following packages: linux-backports-modules-alsa-2.6.31-18-generic (2.6.31-18.20) linux-headers-2.6.31-18 (2.6.31-18.55) linux-headers-2.6.31-18-generic (2.6.31-18.55) linux-image-2.6.31-18-generic (2.6.31-18.55)
Using Ubuntu 10.04 and installed latest Banshee via Banshee Team PPA repository. Also installed the streamrecorder plugin and gstreamer-plugins-ugly. When Banshee was at 1.8.0, I could convert streams to MP3. Since it updated to 1.8.1, I can only save the unconverted stream. Tried re-installing the gstreamer plugins but no effect. why I can no longer convert streams to mp3?
Last week when I was still running Lucid I could get Banshee to read and write to my Sansa Clip Plus fine, but now that I have upgraded to Maverick Banshee can no longer see it.
I have it set in MSC mode with an .is_audio_player file (that worked back in Lucid) and Rhythmbox can see it and read and write to it fine. Has anyone else encountered this problem or does anyone else know what might be causing it? Banshee's version is 1.7.6 and the contents of my .is_audio_file are posted below:
I have used synaptic to install the panel applet called "timer-applet." After installing with synaptic, the applet will not appear in the "Add to Panel" dialog box that appears after right-clicking on the panel. How can I fix this?
I'm trying to boot into 10.04, but all I see is the purple background. I never get a login box to load the desktop. I've managed to gain access to the desktop, using the command line from the recovery console, only to see various warnings about gnome applet failures.
This header file no longer appears when it is set as the "stylesheet/imags/heading banner"
Ubuntu 11.04 GnuCASH v.2.4.2 (from the ubuntu 11.04 repos)
This worked in GnuCASH Ubuntu 10.04 (gnucash 2.2.9-5) but no longer works after doing a clean install followed by copying ~/.gnucash and ~/.aqbanking back into place. The rest of the attributes of both my custom Invoice & Report stylesheet still work (ie colours, etc.) but even when creating a brand new custom stylesheet I cannot get these images to appear after adding them to a stylesheet and saving the settings. This worked fine in the previous version of the application. I have tried deleting the old stylesheet(s) and recreating from scratch and the only thing that does not work is placing the banner or logo images where they are supposed to be. I've done an strace to verify that the image is being found: it's just not appearing.
I have asked around on IRC (irc.gnome.org #gnucash) and it was suggested that it might be a webkit issue, libwebkitgtk is verified as installed.
I have a 3rd gen iPod shuffle which I had loaded music onto in Banshee a few months ago. It worked fine until yesterday when I decided I wanted to delete a few tracks from it. When I mounted it and opened Banshee it said I had to rebuild the database or something to that effect. I did that and could then see all the tracks on it. I went ahead and deleted the few tracks I wanted to remove, and ejected it. When I tried to use it, it says "please use itunes to sync music." A little confused, I went back and deleted all the tracks on it (using Banshee) and reloaded some tracks. It still won't work.
I haven't changed anything in Banshee (as far as I know) and I have never plugged the shuffle into itunes. I've always used Banshee to manage it and never had a problem. The only major change I can think of that might have made a difference is upgrading from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04.
Well, to start off my graphics card didn't work but I got that fixed.
When I start up and the login screen appears it no longer says my username and Other.. under it. It only displays Other.. I have to click that type in my username and then my password. When I log on the Auto Bug Reporting tool pops up and says 3 things crashed
I can't change my system time, shutdown or reboot under system or my username in the top right hand corner. I have to su and manually type reboot or shutdown to shutdown. It is like the computer is completely restricting me from using it.
When I try to get into my firewall an error comes up
When my Iphone had the 4.2.1 firmware it mounted just fine with Ubuntu, OK sure it took a download of libimobiledevice1 and some other libraries but it worked, and sync'd just fine with Rhythmbox. But, as all manufacturers do, they have released a superior new OS for the phone which fixes all those annoying little bug. I have read from 4.3.2 they changed the itunes database version to an updated one. Now this is fine if you have a windows or mac machine running the latest version of itunes but if like all of us here you have an Ubuntu machine for a very valid reason... i.e you wanted a better operating system that wasnt going to cost the earth.
well, you are screwed as they have locked the third part access to the device's itunes library. I have followed long procedures trying to hack into the phone, modifying certain files, creating a hashfile and dropping this into a system folder to fool the phone into thinking it has the 4.2.1 database still but to no avail. Now my iphone is jailbroken, for the very same reasons as to why have an ubuntu machine, a good peice of hardware with good software that i can customise to run how i see fit, this error is the same with my friends non jaibroken phone and my wifes newly updated iopd..
Surely someone out there who has an ipod, iphone 3gs who are running 4.3.2 or higher has figured out how to fix this annoying "update" problem. The phone mounts fine and i can see a documents drive and the main iphone itself, so it is being recognised but im getting errors when trying ti access the phone in ANY linux media software... They all see the phone but cant recognise the database.
After I reinstalled OpenSuse 11.3. I have an interesting problem. When I start Umbrello or Ocullar under GNOME, windows of these applications are opened maximazied with no top panel (the one with close, minimize, maximize buttons and window name). I can't resize this window or move it somewhere.
Long story short, my HTPC has a keyboard, but no mouse.I'd gotten pretty good at working the machine with no mouse, but after my upgrade to Natty Narwhal today, the Ctrl+Esc shortcut to open the Applications window no longer works. Alt+F2 only works when another application is already open.I can get to the Applications menu using Ctrl+Alt+NumLock and mouse emulation, but it's pretty painful.Have I messed something up here? My install went a little messy, but I've managed to get everything else working and I doubt a keyboard control would be a bad install/upgrade.
Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid), GNOME 2.30.2. After some time of correct operation, my dropdown menu from "Places" in the GNOME Panel has gone wrong.
If I click Places and then click on any of the dropdown shown, Home Folder, Desktop, Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos, Downloads, before the horizontal line separator, Banshee launches. Those after the separator, Computer, Floppy and my Hard Drives, launch correctly.
I have tried restoring the Panel to its original setting with no luck.
I recently upgraded my Zepto laptop to Natty (11.04), and unfortunately the wifi no longer worked. I have a WPA net, and the combination with a Ralink chip seems unfortunate - judging from the number of internet posts.After browsing loads of threads on the 'net I think I have found a solution for 11.04 - it will work out of the box in 11.10 !
1) Add "blacklist rt2800pci" to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
I think this makes the wifi stuff work as I can then do "iwlist wlan0 scan" and get reasonable output. But there is no integration with the Network Manager. So I have also done this (again, with inspiration from a few threads):
2) Edit /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf - change the "managed=false" under "[ifupdown]" to "managed=true".
You may have to do a "service network-manager restart", restart or similar to get it going.It also seems I can suspend and get a wifi net connection upon wakeup.
In Maverick I could remove the last Gnome panel by editing gconf and removing gnome-panel from desktop > gnome > session > required_components.I've just updated to Natty and doing this makes no difference. I assume Unity is doing it now, or maybe zeitgeist?I've grep'd through .local and .config, and checked Startup Applications but it still loads gnome-panel every session.
I am running natty (64bin) and recently it has stopped responding to either the shutdown or reboot command from the panel menu. When you select shutdown, and then hit yest to confirm, nothing happens. I looked at the logs and nothing seems to be generating any errors either. Not even sure how to trouble shoot this issue.
I hopelessly tried to find answers for my problems but I could not find a single person complaining about this one: I am using a Lenovo G550 laptop (which has an NVIDIA graphics card) accompanied by a samsung screen using TwinView configuration. I have some special effects enabled and they all seem to work fine.
My main problem is: When I double click on the top panel in a window and maximize its size (it can be an application, a directory window or a terminal, anything..) on Natty, I sometimes can reduce its size back by double clicking on the Natty panel and sometimes this does not work! In times this does not work (reducing by double clicking again), I have to use the rectangle button in the panel in order to reduce it back. In times it works, I can simply double click on Natty top panel or left click on the panel, hold it, and pull it down.
What the hell can be the reason? I somehow observed a strange relationship between this behaviour and thunderbird but I am not 100% sure. Can anyone offer some help?
And another irrelevant question:
Is there a way to make the mail/pidgin indicator that turns green when a new message/mail recieved jump or move or do some action? Because when working full screen it is really hard to notice that thing going green. Previously on 10.10 if i'm not mistaken you could make the pidgin indicator jump high and low as a notifier. Is there a way in 11.04 to achieve this?
I'm using LXDE and everything has been fine up until yesterday something strange happened. My panel no longer stays on top of everything. Whatever window I have open when dragged will be over it. I want the panel to go back to how it was but none of the settings seem to fix the problem. I went into the panel settings and I tried reserve space and the dock panel option but to no avail. how to restore it to being on top of everything?
I don't know but just one day after I restarted my ubuntu 10.10 pc. Probably after an update. Dropbox no longer shows up in the top panel. I also had a thing called googsystray, that no longer shows up either. I can see the process dropbox is running.
I have been getting video error's in gnome-panel since I upgraded to Natty. It seems to become transparent on part of it, and my background covers it. I have tried deleting my gnome-panel preference's, to no aval. Does anybody know how to fix this?
version: 11.04, 32 bit, Gnome/Unity desktopThe "Launcher & Menus" panel (asking where to place launcher in relation to cursor/pointer), always appears on start up. Both in Unity and Classic desktops.As background, I originally set up the PC with Unity, but in frustration I returned to the classic desktop. But for some reason (I fiddled something somewhere), I get the above panel popping up in to top LH corner on start up of either desktop. It's annoying because I am preparing this PC for a hopeful convert for Windoze, so presentation needs to be goodI run Ubuntu 11.04 (both classic desktop) on two other PCs and this is not a problem.
I recently removed Winblows Vista from my laptop and replaced it with Kubuntu 10.10 (I left the recovery partition on there, just in case). When I turn on the computer, the GRUB menu appears, I press enter, then a little flashing underscore appears on the screen in the top left hand corner. After a few seconds, the Kubuntu logo appears and I can log in.But yesterday I replace Kubuntu with Ubuntu 10.10. The Boot process is the same, but the little flashing underscore in the top left hand corner flashes for about 10 seconds longer then Kubuntu 10.10 did, and then a few paragraphs of text appears for a few seconds, then I am logged in automatically.Is this "unusual" boot process anything to worry about, or am I just being a noob.
