I was used to use the network and battery icon in the notification are (next to the sound and date/time). Now the bluetooth, battery, network, sound and envelope icon are visible, but there is no responds clicking on it.Pressing the mute-button on the keyboard changes the icon in the notification area. Also connecting a wireless network changes the icon.But to change network is becoming impossible by clicking the icon (and I do not know an other way to change it).The only thing I can think of was whitelisting all programs:Code:sudo gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['all']"This was the only change I made.EDIT: Icons of external programs do respond.
I installed the Mac OS X Leopard theme. I didn't really like it so I decided to uninstall it and went to the default theme.
Now, whenever I try to minimize an application to the system tray, the notification area doesn't show any icons.
For example, I am running Tixati and I have set it up to hide it in the system tray when clicking the close button. Before installing the Mac theme, I had the Tixati icon on the top panel, where I could hover the pointer in order to check the download rate, or right-click it in order to configure it, but now, no icon is shown. I have added a new Notification Area applet but there is nothing shown there.
so i am about a week into using ubuntu. installed it on an old hp laptop that i pieced back together, using a broadcom wireless chip set. got all the drivers loaded and working, on any other network the notification area will display that it is connected no problem. but on my home network it will connect to the wireless but the notification icon will still look like there is no connection.
something that may be useful to know is that i originally plugged the laptop into the the router via wire to download the wireless card drivers.
The only problem I have is that I can not remove notification bar from the top and place it in bottom. I am getting the error in the enclosed screenshot. Is there any body know how to solve this problem. I have gone trhough all steps in the above link and only left is to set the notification area
Just upgraded to Natty. After I've been logged on for a few minutes, the notification area (hope I have the right term) just freezes up. This means I can't access the drop-down menus for sound, wireless, battery, and tomboy notes. I've done a quick search and haven't found any helpful information.
I have the notification area displayed in my panel. Normally, it shows one speaker icon, one battery icon, and one wireless network icon. But now it occasionally shows 2 speakers and no wireless icon, or two batteries and no wireless icon. Sometimes rebooting fixes it. But it seems to be random. This used to work fine, and I can't figure out what I did to mess with it.
I've just tried using my bluetooth today and Karmic cannot detect it. The dongle is blinking so I'm pretty sure there's no defect. I have the standard bluetooth packages installed. I've also tried the Bluetooth Setup with the:
I've got a very annoying problem with my top bar and the notification area. The icons/applet's order is completely messed up. The icon's overlap, some do not show at all, and sometimes some do not load (seeing a black square instead). Most applet's can also be accesed through Applications or System, but especially the wireless app is necessary to be there. Perhaps there is a way to get to it via another way then the notification area, but then I dont know where . The problem isn't consistent; sometimes it's there, sometime's it's not.
I am a naive user in ubuntu and firstly, I do not get a network icon on my notification area. Secondly, when I connect using pon dsl-provider, my connection stays for sometime but it doesn't remain for long. I have to reconnect and again the connection is shortlived...
i have checked, network manager is installed, just the problem is i cant see it in the notification area... ppl keep telling me to add it on the panel and it will show, well its not... all i see are 3 small dashes stacked on each other. The network manager is running
haven't seen this in years since I'm using Ubuntu, but might probably be just a single step to get it back and running.I have a notebook with Ubuntu 10.10 newly installed and since some days, there are no more icons in the notification area.Before it stopped working, I had to do a hard shutdown because the system hung.For now, i.e. when I go to a terminal and enter
I have a volume control program I am writing for oss. Everything works in the program but I would like window to appear above the notification area icon. Is there a way to do this? If not is it possible to have the window open at the mouse location so it looks like it is part of the notification icon?
My dad has an older netbook that I installed Ubuntu 10.10 to, but he complained that it was too clunky.So I did what any good son would do and installed GNOME and Ubuntu themes on top of the minimal version of Ubuntu 10.10.It does run much faster, but I have a small problem with the Notification Area: nm-applet IS running.Notification Area is added to my panel, and in view.I have two interfaces, one wired, one wireless, both function correctly (both manually configured with gedit)
Neither one of the aforementioned interfaces are being displayed in the Notification Area, and my dad is not familiar with Ubuntu or any of the commands, so this is really a must-have for him.
After upgrading to natty, the notification area applet is not displaying correctly the newly loaded icons. It only displays them as tiny dots. I have to remove it from panel, and add it again, in order to get correct display?Can anyone help me to resolve this issue?I use an fglrx card. The problem persist in both unity, and ubuntu classic
Unity lacks a real notification area. I have tried serveral methods to "fix" this. One was this link: Enable notification area for all applications in Ubuntu 11.04 Which did not work for me. Second step was using either cairo-dock or awn. Cairo's notification area doesn't show everything, i.e transmission. So it doesn't have a true "systray".
So I tried awn's. It worked till I rebooted and I got the duplicate systray error. After some reading, I decided to give gnome-panel a try. When gnome-panel launched I noticed that its systray was already active. So I removed it and awn's systray started working. Till I rebooted.
Awn's notification area quit working again with error cannot launch notification area due to one already running. So I tried enabling/disabling it in gnome-panel again. Still will not work in awn.
So I am trying to figure out what exactly is causing the conflict. If Unity doesn't have a systray and Cairo and Gnome's systrays are not active, why will Awn's systray not launch? *Currently I am using the defualt Unity panel, cairo-dock for its applets, awn for its media control applets and gnome-panel for its sytem applets and notification area (systray) Screenshot*
What I'd like to do is get rid of all panels and use Docky exclusively. In order for that to happen I'd need at least 1 thing that I cant seem to add to Docky and cant seem to find a current answer to.1. I need a Main menu option. No need for "Places" because everything in that menu can be done from inside a window. I need "Applications" and "System". Applications - because I don't want to forget I have something or forget a name.ystem - because I need to get to Preferences and Administration.
This happened upon boot-up this morning. Two volume control iconspeared in the notification area. One volume control icon is the real thing, the other appears to overwrite the network manager icon, which isn't showing up at all. If I left click on the "dummy" icon, it does nothing. If I right click and select About, it describes itself as the notification area, the same as if I right click on the little = handle to the left of the notification area. Ubuntu 9.10, system up-to-date.
It is mentioned in bugs and other posts, but they are old and don't provide an answer. On my small screen, the extra horizontal spacing/padding between the icons in the notification area takes up far, far too much space.Is there a way to reduce the spacing/padding. Preferably, I would put it back to what it was in Karmic which I think was about half the current spacing/padding.
I made the upgrade to 10.10 the other day, and it's pretty functional. The few problem that keep erking me are as follows: 1. Often when I boot up the gnome-panel is buggy, I run Code:
gnome-panel --replace to fix this, which it does. I'd just like it to look normal at boot up.
2. The GDM (or compiz) doesn't boot up correct all of the time. Every now and then I'll open a program after booting and will have no minimize/restore/exit buttons. I fix this buy just turning compiz on using the compiz-switch icon which I put up in my panel. 3. Why doesn't rhythmbox minimize to the notification area. I like the mini player in sound menu, but I hate that if you want it out of your system tray it has to be closed.
i'm running ubuntu 10.04 x86 on my laptop and the following problem occured recently; i made a mistake and tried to remove the monitors icon by finally removing more than i hoped for :/ BUT that didn't disappear the whole notification area...i was left with the wireless icon and the input language switcher so i can't restore the battery icon and the sound icon and the mail/chat envelope icon.
