Starting yesterday the weather report applet 2.30.0 stopped updating at prescribed intervals. I have it set to check automatically for updated information every 5 minutes. It seems to be updating once an hour or more. The last two updates were at 53 minutes past the hour. In the past it has never went more than 10 minutes without an update. This is happening with two machines. I tried un-installing from the panel and reinstalling. I think I will try removing completely with synoptic package manager and reinstalling.
I run gnome on Lenny and have been trying to get Weather Report 2.22.3 to work. Rather than having a list of different continents to choose from, I can only select places in Africa. That doesn't help much considering I am half a world away. I have a laptop also, and Weather Report works just fine on it. My desktop is the only machine with the problem.
the first is about the weather: how could I add the weather in the panel like in ubuntu 10? (I am using the classical visualization)the first problem regards the clock... it works but not completely: ie now are14:19 but it shows 14:1 and only an half of 9! i tried moving it but it does not work
I'm a satisfied user of ubuntu 11.04 64bit (installed on a laptop). Everything works fine (unity, sound etc) no problems at all except that when I shutdown my computer on of the services is marked as FAIL.
In a boot log I found: * Stopping automatic crash report generation[74G[[31mfail[39;49m] Ok updating, nothing serious, can be ignored or uninstalled.
Regarding the gnome-panel in Ubuntu (64 bit).... I discovered some time ago that I wasn't the only one who routinely (every login) had their gnome-panel appear butchered, for which Alt-F2 then 'killall gnome-panel' would easily fix.
Having become impatient with this over the past 8 months, I decided I would automate the process and so cofiguring the startup applications seemed like a perfectly logical choice to me. Turns out I was wrong. After adding 'killall gnome-panel' to the startup applications not only does the panel fail to load altogether now, but Alt-F2 doesn't even work.
I tried Ctl-Alt-F1 and working with the graphics-free mode thinking I could somehow navigate to the startup apps config file and edit it, but I don't know where it is or how to edit it without logging in as root and I certainly don't know of any 'root password'.
Firefox 3.1 beta 3 won't load. When I open the application, the little bouncy icon bounces, and the task manager shows "Firefox Web Browser", but this only stays this way for about 15 seconds then just goes away. No error or anything.
I've had this identical problem when I try to open certain programs with Wine too. Is there some place I can find a detailed error report on these failures?
I want to change Weather Applet preferences which is present in the panel of GNOME /openSUSE.But seems to be locked.Please let me know as to how once can change the default settings.I have already used the weather in the time applet(works well).But i want the weather in a separate applet.
Today I upgraded my 10.10 to 11.04. Since the last step of upgrading, when it was restarted, I get stucked in consola where it is checking, and there is written fail at stopping automatic crash report generation. How can I repair it. I tried to do
Everyday I get a red caution symbol in my top panel by all the other notifications. Once I follow the directions I get the following error and explanation:Quote:Failed to fetch http://www.geekconnection.org/remast...sys/Sources.gz 404 Not FoundFailed to fetch http://www.geekconnection.org/remast...ntu/Sources.gz 404 Not FoundSome index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.I understand one of the repos is failing to install, but I've never added a repo (except for FireFox 4), and I'm wondering if this repo is important or of good use, if not I'd like to remove it which should be able to be done in the Ubuntu Software Center if I'm correct.
I was intending to do a clean install of 10.04.I have downloaded and burned desktop-i386.iso.After booting from CD and selecting install from the menu, I get the splash screen for a few minutes, then black screen, then purple ubuntu screen, then the error message "the installer has encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run etc.....".
I am thinking this may be related to ACPI, because when i 'Try Ubuntu without installing' it loads ok but I get a 'Crash Report' notification on the panel.
If again 'Try Ubuntu without installing' with F6 option "ACPI=Off" it loads up with no problem.
Another thing I noticed is that when I load with ACPI=OFF, my external drives automount, but if i dont turn ACPI off, and get the Crash report notification the external drives do not automount.
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and I am facing a strange issue with the top panel. Sometimes it looks weird as shown in attached image.In the image you can see white blocks .. after date the username gets clumsy.Until and unless I restart my system the behaviour cannot be reset. Is there any workaround or solution for this issue ??
I've upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04, and now I'm experiencing some problems with the displaying of panels and icons that I'm hoping someone can help me to fix.
Situation: Running 11.04 in latest virtualbox (4.06, with guest additions installed) on a macbook pro running snow leopard (10.6.7). I'm in gnome classic (no effects) because I'm not yet used to gnome 3 and compiz doesn't run all that well for me in this virtualization set-up. But the problem, described below, is consistent from gnome 3 to classic (with effects) to classic (without effects).
Problem: When I first log in after a reboot, everything looks great in the default settings (ambiance theme, I think), but after ~ 15 seconds, the panels and icons revert to an odd looking theme that I don't particularly care for. And trying to change the settings in the "Appearance" preferences is of no help, i.e., I can change the themes, but the panels and icons remain in a stock, old-school gnome-ish theme.
A couple of months ago I (naively) installed Python 2.6.2 to my system without using an RPM. Then recently I tried to run the Display panel (/usr/bin/system-config-display) and it never opened.I then used it from the command line and after realizing it was a Python problem I spent some time trying to eliminate the python conflict by removing 2.6 and reinstalling all the python related RPMs from URL..Searching online one of the things I have found is to recompile python with UCS4 support though that seems to go against the idea of using an rpm as I understand it and I would assume it has been compiled as needed for CentOS.
Trying to boot Ubuntu 10.04.1 live CD and I get nowhere because the screen just stays black, with a monitor OSD alert saying "Cannot display this mode."
Is there a consumer version of Ubuntu available for regular people to use? I searched on the fourms and any post about "cannot display this mode" advises users to edit configuration files, or go into command line mode... what is this, 1991?
What is the real solution to this? Or is Ubuntu not made for consumer users? What other options do I have besides Mandrake?
The Ubuntu screenshots looks swell, nice graphic design of the user interface, pretty, but they should make the installer/live CD actually work like any other OS in 2010 first tho'.
I have just updated to karmic. For some odd reason, the time/date indicator on the top panel now spreads the data over two lines, rather than placing them side by side. There doesn't seem to be any option in the preferences program to control this.
This means that the panel cannot be reduced below a two line minimum. Not only have I lost desktop space, but the panel icons have expanded to suit the new thicker panel.
I have a weird problem on 10.04 where my nm-applet icon wont show on the panel. Only when there are no known wireless AP around. if there is a previously connected wireless in the area I will see the icon but if I'm at a new place it just won't show up. nm-applet is still running, I tried to kill and restart it but the icon still doesn't show .
