Ubuntu :: No Panel Transparency Or Driver Enabled?

Apr 21, 2011

I have no transparency with Unity so I checked to see if my driver was installed, it says the drivers are activated but not currently in use, see screenshot:

Is there something I need to enable to get this to be working? If I need to, will this enable transparency?

Ubuntu :: Panel Not Using Transparency Correctly?

Jun 25, 2010

I've been having some trouble getting transparency to work properly on the panels. I've attached a screenshot in which I've got a fully transparent background image applied to the panel, yet the main menu area, status area, and clock are not affected by the background.

I've searched google quit a bit, and all I find are topics saying things like using alt-scroll to make it transparent, but I want all of the icons to remain opaque. Also, people say to use a solid color and adjust the transparency in the properties menu, I've tried all of this, these are obvious.

Ubuntu :: Panel Transparency Doesn't Work?

Apr 30, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, and I'm trying to make my panel semi-transparent.

Unfortunately, the whole thing won't go transparent, only the blank areas without applets!

I know you can hack it in Compiz, but then everything goes transparent, including text and icons, which I don't want.

As you can see from the screenshot, I'm using the Radiance theme, but this also occurs with Ambience.

Ubuntu :: Lost Gnome Panel Transparency On Upgrade To 10.04

Jul 25, 2010

I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 10.04 and things went pretty smooth. The only real issue is that I lost the transparency settings for the menu & indicator applets on my top knome panel. I simply don't remember how i did it last time, and i've been searching the net for an hour for a solution with no luck. Many results suggested the use of the Compiz Settings Manager's opacity settings, but that opacity applies to everything, including the text & icons. I thought i used the "gnome color chooser" package to do it last time, but I cannot find the option in the gui. how to make the background of the menu (applications/places/system) and indicator applet have transparent backgrounds while retaining full text/icon brightness?

Ubuntu Installation :: Panel Transparency Is Lost On Restart?

May 2, 2011

I have had no issue with the panel's transparency in previous Ubuntu versions. This all started w/ Natty. I set up transparency (right click on panel, Nav through Properties > Background, Check "Solid Color," slide bar to my preferred opacity, & click "Close." The panel looks as follows: But when I restart the computer it goes grey:

killall command doesn't work, I have moved the panel, I have created a new one. The "closest" I found were people complaining (back in December) that the theme switched to grey. But I don't think the panel is taking up another theme, it is simply not painting the transparent image.

I didn't like Unity so I disabled it (still installed). I also removed indicator-me and indicator-messenger via synaptic as I have since Lucid Lynx. I removed the black bubble notifications and removed the shutdown/logout/restart confirmation/countdown prompt w/ a couple of code-hacks I found online as I have since Jaunty Jackalope. I also tried to change the opacity though an option inside Compiz's "Opacity, Brightness and Saturation". This also made AWN icons transparent so I undid it. I use the "Glossy P" theme w/ "Snow Apple" icons.

Ubuntu :: NVidia Driver "Desktop Visual Effects Cannot Be Enabled"

Jun 26, 2011

I have new hardware and I'm doing a dual boot, hoping that Ubuntu will be my primary OS, but I'm having trouble ringing it out. I installed Ultimate Edition 2.6.1 and in the past with an old machine I could turn on visual effects. With this machine, when I try to, it says it's looking for a driver, blinks a bit and then comes back with a message saying "Desktop visual effects cannot be enabled."

I assume that I don't have the nVidia driver loaded. When I go to Hardware Drivers, it says "No proprietary drivers are in use on this system." In synaptic, the latest driver does not show up. I followed the instructions on this site that someone put up which required adding some lines to the "Blacklist" then purging old drivers. It said to expect an error and what to do then, but I never got the error. When I tried to do the rest of the commands anyway, nothing seemed to happen. One of the steps was to download the latest driver, which I did. It was a .run file...........

Ubuntu :: Proprietary ATI Driver No Text In Panel, Openoffice Freeze?

Dec 28, 2010

I've just upgraded to Maverick Meerkat on a new Dell system and everything was working just peachy until today. I've spent the last couple days tweaking my ubuntu so something I did made it so that open office only allows me to click inside it and write text some of the time, and very slowly. And then my panel doesn't show the text of the main menu headers. If i click on them though, the menu shows up with text inside it totally in tact.

The problem disappears when I disable the additional driver (preferences-additional drivers-remove). And recurs when I activate it. So, suspect its a conflict with xorg and the proprietary driver. I'm running emerald with window decorations (theme is neon glow) - changing the emerald theme doesn't affect the problem. Im also running compiz-fusion.

Ubuntu :: "Panel" And Other Styles Change After Driver Install / System Update?

Jan 29, 2011

I have installed restricted drivers and upgraded system software (I believe all during one session without a start), after restarting my computer the panel style changed to another (ugly) style. I have ensured that I restarted multiple times afterwards and that the system -> pref -> appearance setting is set to "Ambiance."

I have also tried:

gconftool-2 --shutdown
rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
pkill gnome-panel

I have a Dell M6500 w/ an Nvidia graphics card.

It could be noted that I have previously installed Ubuntu on this machine (for testing on another drive) and have upgraded (although possibly in piecemeal) without this problem happening. Any assistance would be appreciated, otherwise I'll likely reinstall as the time to do so has so far been less then trying to fix this problem.

Edit: Did some experimenting, reinstall system and installed the recommended NVidia restricted driver (from the system -> administration menu), I had a choice of "Version 173" and "Recommended," as soon as I did and restarted the retro styling returned, am going to try using the (presumedly) newer driver in a bit.

Ubuntu :: Use Fake Transparency With Compiz?

Ubuntu :: Removing Transparency In Terminal

May 7, 2010

By default in Lucid, Gnome Terminal is transparent.I was on my new Lucid install[1], in Terminal, typing away on the far side of some sshes, and reading some code, when I noticed how awkward it was to read because the background was showing through. "Fine", I thought, "I know where that setting is, although it's a strange default".But Terminal's "Edit Profiles->Edit->Background" revealed it was set to "Solid color". In fact, setting it to "Transparent background", and cranking the Shade up to Maximum was one way of removing the transparency.

A little hunting around revealed that "System->Preferences->Appearance->Visual Effects" could be set to None instead of Normal, and that would fix the problem.So, your choices for a functional terminal are to disable all Compiz eyecandy, or to turn on transparency in order to turn off transparency.Does this strike anybody else as wrong? Is there another control I've missed?

Ubuntu :: How To Set Window Transparency With Compiz

Ubuntu :: Enable Transparency In Xfce?

Aug 26, 2010

I've been looking around for a while now for the answer to a pretty simple question. I'm normally a gnome user but I'm setting up an old computer with xubuntu for a friend, and I can't figure out how to get transparency to work for guake. In gnome I just go to appearance > visual effects, don't see anything like that in xfce.I downloaded compizconfig-settings-manager (which I assume downloaded the rest of compiz) and did "compiz --replace" but that didn't work. What would I need to do to get basic opengl effects?

Ubuntu :: Enable Rainlendar Transparency Options?

I had this problem with Xubuntu when I was using it and all I had to do was enable compositing for it to work. I have no idea how to do that under gnome and I didn't see any option like that in compiz when I was using the manager.

Ubuntu :: Terminal Loses Transparency After Upgrade

May 27, 2010

I lost transparent terminal windows in LL after you upgraded, you have fallen victim to the not-too-atypical "Preferences File Use Changed Krap". Essentially when you look at a preferences pane it appears that everything is ok, but actually, the way the preference file is being used changed in this version of Ubuntu and you are being punished for it. We need to get the new version of the program to fix the preference file for us, which is easy enough to do by just making the setting changes again.

So, in Terminal,
1) Go to Edit->Profile Preferences.
2) Pick the "Background" tab. You will most likely see that the "Transparent Background" radio is set, but the background is not transparent.
3) Click on one of the other radios (I did "background image") and the terminal window should become transparent.
4) Click on the Transparent radio again and dismiss the dialog.
