Ubuntu :: Skype & Opera Have Black Menus With Human Theme

Jun 8, 2010

When I activate the Ambiance theme, skype, opera, and probably one or two other applications have black menus with black text. It seems like the black background colour is being used from the Ambiance theme, but the menu text colour is not.

Could it be related to qt4? I just installed Opera qt4 because I read somewhere that qt4 would keep it closer to the theme or something.

Ubuntu :: Restore 10.04 Human Theme And Fonts Folder?

Jul 10, 2010

I have Ubuntu Lucid Lynx installed and thought I'd try out Mac4Lin. I then decided to remove it and ran the script for doing so. This worked, except that it seems to have removed one of the standard Ubuntu themes (Human) and left some Mac4Lin fonts in my fonts folder (can't say which they all are). How do I repair my Ubuntu installation without upsetting my 3G internet access, etc? I don't have an ethernet connection, but am using Vodacom 3G. Can I do this from the Ubuntu disk?

Ubuntu :: Opera Hides Menubars With Clearlooks Theme?

May 3, 2011

After I upgraded to Naty Narwhal (I'm using Ubuntu Classic, because my GPU cannnot process Unity) few days ago, Opera began to hide both menubar and disable its own control bar (not sure how should I call it - the close,minimize,maximize thingy). Actually, the problem occurs only when I'm using Clearlooks theme. With Ubuntu's default (radiance) everything is fine.

Ubuntu :: Using Dust Dark Theme, Can't See The Menus?

Jul 18, 2011

I've selected the Dusk Dark theme, but the menu names are of the same color (I have to look extremely closely at the monitor to see the names of the menus. I assumed the font color of the menu names would change to a color (such as white) that would contrast the near black color of the Dust Dark theme. How can I change thisBy the way, I'm really uncomfortable with the Ubuntu layout. How can I switch to multiple windows without using Alt-Tab? Like access the Windows taskbar?

Ubuntu :: Skype With Dark Menus And Blank Tooltips On Lucid 10.04?

Jun 23, 2010

It took me a while to find a post that solved my problem, so I thought I'd try to make it easier for others with the same problem to find the solution.If you are using Skype with a dark themed lucid lynx 10.04, you may find that your Skype menus appeardark and unreadable, and that tooltips (when you move your mouse over a contact) appear pale and unreadable. You can find the solution here:

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?

Slackware :: Skype Doesn't Use The XFCE Theme?

Feb 28, 2011

I'm new to Slackware (been on *buntu until now, and use Mint at work). And had to learn some things to make the system do what I want to. That was the aim actually, when I decided to install Slackware 13.1 instead of the Win 7 on my new laptop.And here is one of the two things that I have to do now, to make the system completely the same as I want it to be.I use a black theme - Audacious - on my XFCE on Slackware 13.1. And the skype doesn't use the theme. It stays originally light.

(At work I'm with Mint with LXDE, the same theme. Exactly. And the skype uses it. And looks very good ...)So, I tried the options in the skype options menu - General - Choose style. But no option has the desired effect.I plan to uninstall skype and either install it again from slackbuilds, or just download the static (or the dynamic) one from skype.com. But, if there is something else I can do - I'd prefer this way.PS: There is something curious also - OpenOffice on the Mint distro doesnt' use the theme. But OpenOffice on the laptop use it, and becomes black ... ?? ... I don't know if this tells something, but - I noticed this.

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.)

Slackware :: Slim - Default Theme Vs Black

Jan 26, 2010

I'm trying out slim - the login replacement for gdm/kdm/xdm. I find that when I use the special supplied Slackware theme, I can't see the cycling of the session names as I repeatedly hit F1. But when I use the default theme they show up just fine. Is there some special tweak to /etc/slim.conf that will make the session names visible using the Slackware theme?

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 :: Stuck With Human-clearlooks Window Controls When Using Compiz Effects?

Sep 2, 2010

I cannot change my window controls to Ambiance theme when compiz effects are on. When I turn off compiz effects, theme selection works as a charm, but when I turn compiz effects on again, I get back to human-clearlooks. In Appearance Preferences -> Theme I can still see Ambiance is selected, but window controls are from human-clearlooks. Every theme changes only colors, icons, fonts etc, but window controls remain. And remain on the right side of window. Everything works as expected when I turn off compiz effects.

In CompizConfig Settings Manager -> Effects -> Window Decoration Command is specified to /usr/bin/compiz-decorator What can I do to have buttons of the left side? I tried to change in gconf-editor in apps -> metacity -> general -> button_layout to "close,minimize,maximize:menu", but it still has no effect on compiz

Ubuntu :: Current Theme Defaults To Silver Theme For No Reason Randomly On Login

May 4, 2011

For some reason, from time to time on login, as my normal theme starts to load, it changes to some sort of silver theme (a very basic one), and I am unable to change it over to any other theme. Checking the theme being used, it still says my desired one is set, but it is not. Also, no matter what theme I change it to, that basic silver theme is the one being used. This includes a default icon theme, not the one I prefer.

The only option that seems to fix things is a restart, and the hope that on this login it won't mess up like before.I am using Natty, from a fresh install, with Ubuntu Classic as my desktop, and have reinstalled things more than once to try and fix a few of the Natty-related issues, but this one keeps coming back.
