Ubuntu :: Screen Black - Background Picture Hidden

Jan 27, 2010

I have the latest version of ubuntu, my problem is my desktop background is black, when I shut the PC down the desktop background (the picture set as my background) flashes up, (the picture will change when I change the background). Looks like the black desktop background is hiding it. Also when opening emails with attachments the attachment opens then gets covered with the black background.

Ubuntu :: File Manager - Cant Get To Display A Background Picture On The Desktop

Jul 13, 2010

I just installed 9.10, and the "File Manager" seems to not be working. I cant get ubuntu to display a background picture on the desktop, and anything I put on the desktop is not selectable. If I try to access anything under the "Places" tab, it tries to open a window, which read "opening whatever" but nothing happens. I can access files via terminal just fine.

Debian Installation :: Window Manager Produces No Background Picture

Jan 14, 2015

I did remake my minimal installation. My window manager produces no background picture else I did add someone. So i will do it using xorg-xli. I did find the (in other cases usual) xinitrc as /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc but in only refers to an other script

and the other script (/etc/X11/Xsession) does not include some usuable steps to include easily supplementary starting commands.

Where is to do that in Debian SID actually?

Ubuntu :: Ambiance Theme Graphical Glitch - Broadcast Box In The "Me Menu" Is Black Text On A Near Black Background

Oct 21, 2010

When Ambiance is selected as the theme, the broadcast box in the "Me Menu" is black text on a near black background. Changing the "Input Boxes" color changed the color of that boxes background on every theme except Ambiance. The problem seems to be with having "Controls" set to Ambiance, because having any other theme customized with Ambiance controls selected causes this bug again.

I really don't want to use any of the other themes because I find them horrid in comparison. how to fix this bug, or if someone would be kind enough to post a proper bug report for this? Can anyone else recreate this error on theirs?

Fedora Hardware :: Black Screen \ Can Force A Shutdown, Login And Get The Same Black Screen?

Mar 6, 2010

I was messing around with the screen orientation and thought it would be funny to orient it sideways. Big mistake The screen went black.I can force a shutdown, login and I get the same black screen. I tried hooking up an external monitor and the monitor showed no input so I'm guessing my laptop doesn't have that capability with Fedora.This is my main computer.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Wireless Is Not Working - Camera On Skype Or A Photo Program The Video Feed / Picture Is Black

Mar 15, 2011

i just fixed my old-ish laptop (pop accident) and instead of putting window on it my dad talked me into trying ubuntu out, gotta say love it, fast and everything but having major problems. i have a lenovo 3000 v200. everything is the same as out of the box except the keyboard, only thing i really needed to replace.
ok problems

1) wireless is not working: i have the switch on (side of the laptop) and bluetooth lights up but wireless doesnt. (Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG). now i just learned about 'rfkill list' it shows that there is a soft block on the wireless. tried " rfkill unblock 0" nothing happened. also when i tried finding out wat kernel im using " uname-r" to find out more on why its not unblocking, the CLI says "comand isnt found" next two problems are small but are still frustrating

2) built in camera: the green light is on next to the lens but when trying to test the camera on skype or a photo program the video feed/ picture is black, or blank. not sure what i can do to fix that.

3) fingerprint scanner: yes i have one, i know its not efficient but I still like using it to login in instead of typing. im not sure how to get linux/ubuntu to recognize it if it even is. not sure how to set it up if it is recognized.

i would like to fix the wireless more than anything, if i can fix the camera and scanner then yeay, otherwise i can survive. oh and note i did try using the "additional drivers" app. nothing popped up.

Ubuntu Security :: Black Hats - 105GB FAT16 Hidden Partition On Hard Drive

Mar 31, 2010

Since August of 2009 I have been under attack by corporate Black Hats. I found a 105GB FAT16 Hidden partition on my hard drive. Seventy four percent full (78GB). What led me to this was the fact that I couldn't help but notice that my Internet connection was a revolving door that never stopped spinning. So I went looking for why.

I removed the hidden flag, and patched the partition, but couldn't open that thing no matter what I did. I tried for a month. The attacks started as soon as I stopped these guys from accessing that data. At this point we are 9 months into 24/7 attacks. I have interviewed with the FBI, and local law enforcement, but they are intent on making me out to be a conspiracy nut. I am not at all. All they wanted to do is quiz me on my computer skills. If I managed to draw the attention of a corporate security group they killed it.

I am a US Navy trained Electronics Technician. 58 years old with ECM experience. I have been doing both bench, and field service on all manner of electronics for 40 years. My last job was supporting field engineers, and technicians for Samsung Electronics of America. The attacks have spread to my mother, and best friend. My phones are bugged internally at the phone company, and my modem has had its firmware altered to call them. They run around inside my ISP like they own the place.

Ubuntu :: Black Background After Changing Vnc Settings

Oct 12, 2010

I was configuring the vnc server or remote desktop using the "gconf-editor" -- "desktop - gnome - remote_access" pane, and first I clicked on "disable background" to see if it was usefull or not to disable it (in terms of speed). It worked fine but sometimes when closing the connection, the background refuses to reenable, mantaining the black background...

That's ok, I decided to disable the feature and share via vnc the background as it is a wired net and I do not really need this feature.

My surprise is that now, whith the feature DISABLE (box unchecked), I cannot set a background, it is always black and I find no way to go back in this...

is this common, or something that can be "easily" fixed?

Ubuntu :: Folders Show A Black Background And No Files?

Jan 16, 2011

A rookie Ubuntu user, I foolishly downloaded iTunes and ever since that install (which has since been undone), my folder system shows a black background. The only way to see the files is to click and drag my mouse over the files in the system. Is there a way to fix this? I've attached a screenshot for clarity.

Ubuntu :: Login Background / Gdm Theme Has Turned Black

Jun 27, 2011

I just installed xubuntu natty, and the gdm theme (xubuntu-gdm-theme) has somehow reverted to something ugly. The background is black instead of showing xubuntu-greybird.png, the panel bar is light gray, and the shutdown button is now gray instead of a red/orange power icon.

The problem appeared while I was tweaking my account settings, possibly when I used the users-admin tool, but I'm not sure.

I tried purging and reinstalling the following packages:


...but that didn't help.

For comparison, I'm attaching screen shots of my (broken) gdm screen and a correct one from a virtual machine. (Try to ignore the fact that they're different screen resolutions.)

OpenSUSE :: Getting Black Background With KDE4?

Aug 31, 2010

I've been running KDE4 with Suse 11.2 for about a year or so now, with no problems. Yesterday, the background to my screen suddenly went black. Open windows were unaffected, but I could see my theme, the task manager, etc. I couldn't open any programs other than the ones already open (and ones that they launch).This problem was system-wide, in that it affects all accounts on my machine.I thought I'd solved the problem after discussion with someone by email, by forcing KDE to recreate itself. I did this by

mv ~/.kde4 ~/oldkde4

then relogging. This, in itself, seemed to make matters worse, so I went

mv ~/.kde4 ~/newkde4
mv ~/oldkde4 ~/.kde4

and relogged. To my surprise, everything worked thereafter for a few hours.

I think this was coincidence, because, after a few hours, the same thing happened and the "fix" didn't work anymore.I checked .xsession-error and it says

/etc/X11/xim: Checking whether an input method should be started.
sourcing /etc/sysconfig/language to get the value of INPUT_METHOD
INPUT_METHOD is not set or empty (no user selected input method).

Ubuntu :: Eclipse - Code Completion Black Background Unreadable?

Sep 10, 2010

Whenever I use code completion in Eclipse for a function, the function's PHP help/docs cannot be seen because it has a black background. How can I change this? I'm using Ubuntu 10 64 bit, default theme. Default eclipse theme. I've tried changing all the black colors in the Eclipse preferences under both Appearance and the other colors area to no success.

This is very annoying, as I cannot view help for any PHP functions without using my web browser.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Change The Name Of The Login Screen Picture?

Oct 26, 2010

Today I decided to customise my Ubuntu by installing my own picture over the default picture used in the log-in screen. I did a search and found it (in /usr/share/backgrounds). I looked into it a bit and found that the image was a .jpg with the name changed to a .png extension. I though I copied the title of it but must have hit the wrong button.

I put my picture in the folder. I then copied the name of the file, then deleted it. I went to paste the name over my new picture, and then found that I had hit the wrong button to copy it. When I delete things I usually hold shift to perma-delete it, so it isn't in the bin. Oh btw, I did this before in 10.04 and it worked in case anyone wants to do the same. It just needs to be a .jpg file, renamed to end with .png
