Ubuntu :: Starting Empathy From Panel Freezes Panel?

Sep 25, 2010

So I take a glance at the time, and realize the clock has been showing the same hour for ages.Basically, if I use the gnome-panel menu for launching empathy the panel freezes. The workaround that I use is switching off showing seconds and switching it on again on the date format menu of the panel. (I never used seconds on the date format, but that way you realize the panel is frozen)I've seen this behaviour in two diferent computers I use, any hint on what may cause this? Every applet keeps working as usual, but the menu display is frozen.I'm on 10.04, using version 2.30.2 of gnome. Steps to reproduce: click on the envelope icon of the menu and launch xat. It only happens the first time (when empathy is loaded) and it gets solved if you start empathy through sessions or whatever (The problem with the sessions workaround is that I can't manage to make it started without focus).

Ubuntu :: Gnome-panel Freezes In 9.10 64bit

Jan 22, 2010

My gnome-panel freezes frequently. Temporary solution: I have added gnome-terminal to my startup programs, and enter "killall gnome-panel" command whenever the panel freezes. However, this is inconvenient especially when the panel freezes every now and then.

Quite interestingly, all icons, menus, and applets freeze including run dialog [Alt-F2], except logout, battery, volume, etc. in the system (applets indicator) tray [time & calendar icon also freezes in system-tray]. I have tried killing all processes related to evolution, but to no avail. someone also suggested removing applets... well, it is not mentioned which applet to remove..

Ubuntu :: Tightvncserver Maps M To Panel Envelope And S To Panel 'power Switch'?

Apr 30, 2010

When I start the tightvncserver (vncserver -geometry 1600x1024 :1) and then connect to it with a vncviewer (tightvnc 1.3.0 on Win7 or vncviewer on 9.10) and then start a terminal (gnome-terminal or xterm) the m key it opens the envelope tab on the panel. The 's' key opens the shutdown applet.This did not happen on 9.10, or earlier

Ubuntu :: Default Panel Clock Shows Up On Middle Of Screen When Moved To Bottom Panel?

Mar 4, 2011

I have had this problem with all installations of Maverick Meerkat. Moving the default clock from the upper panel to the lower panel makes it bahave strangely. When clicked on, it now appears in the middle of the screen (sometimes even higher depending on resolution). This never happened prior to Maverick Meerkat.

How do I go about to fix this strange bug?

Attached is a screen shot of what I mean.

Ubuntu :: After Adding 'killall Gnome-panel' To The Startup Applications Does The Panel Fail To Load Altogether

Dec 4, 2010

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'.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Screen Freezes When Hover Over Panel Or Cairo Dock

Nov 23, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynix on my HP laptop with WUBI. When I start up my computer and choose to start with Ubuntu, it shows no errors. When I login, I can do anything just fine (I have had to resort to right-clicking on the desktop and opening documents and things from there) until I hover over the Panel or the Cairo Dock, when instantaneously the computer freezes and refuses to do anything at all, no matter how long I leave it (I left it on over night and it still was frozen - the screensaver hadn't come on or anything). The only thing that still works is the mouse, that will still move around, but obviously if I try to click on anything then nothing happens.

Ubuntu :: Resolution - Top Panel Is Slightly Cut Off - Missing About The Top 20% Of The Panel

Mar 23, 2010

I'm new to Ubuntu and really like it so far, having come from a PC background up to now. I've installed it on my Acer laptop and all is well there. However, on my desktop, the screen resolution doesn't match the Ubuntu desktop and fonts and graphics are very blurry. The hardware I have is:

HP Compaq dx2450 micro-tower FE281EA
Samsung 23" widescreen monitor, native resolution 1680x1050

When I check the resolution using System > Preferences > Display it says that indeed I'm using 1680x1050, which should be correct. However, the bottom of the Ubuntu desktop is cut-off, below the bottom of the screen, so I can only see the very top edge of the bottom panel. The top panel is also slightly cut off, missing about the top 20% of the panel. Left and right seem to be in line OK. The resulting blurriness of fonts makes it fairly unusable until I get it fixed.

I've searched fairly extensively and I realise there are other threads on this so sorry for posting again, but they all seem to be slightly different problems and all the responses are fairly or very technical. Maybe I can't avoid a technical solution and getting my hands dirty with a terminal prompt, but I'm hoping I can fix this without resorting to stuff I don't understand and might get wrong. I'm a technically minded end-user but not a unix guy.

Enabling panel transparency shows video artefacts on the panel.nouveau doesn't enable 3D(I use a NVidia GeForce 9600 GT 512MB and my monitor is a ACER LCD X223W)) kind and point me to resources about the nouveau driver and how to configure it so it starts to work?

Desktop Environments :: Unity2D Panel Broken (mouse Over Reverts To Gnome-panel) / Sort It?

May 17, 2011

So I just updated my IdeaPad to Natty and played around with Unity. The performane was absolutely unbearable so I installed Unity2D from the software center. Now when I start the session everything seems to be fine at first. Whenever I move the mouse over the panel though it seems to switch to my old gnome-panel from the "Classic" session (with some missing icons). When I move the mouse over that panel again it switches back to the Unity panel style. What is going on? Can I fix this somehow? I will have to use the classic session until I get a working consistent behavior

Fedora :: Starting File Manager - Continuously Loops In Bottom Panel

Apr 7, 2010

I don't know what I did differently before this happens. Now I cannot access files or see icons on the desktop. The "starting file manager" continuously loops in the bottom panel, continuing to load forever. in the system monitor, if I kill the process "gnome panel", it resets itself, then continues the process. Only thing different I did was install that one thing that gives you System->Preferences->Windows by hitting "yum install control-center-extra".

Ubuntu :: Frozen Panel - Messing Around With The Alternate Character Panel App And Made A Custom Character Set

Jun 12, 2011

I was messing around with the alternate character panel app and made a custom character set. I then wanted to put it on a new panel and created a new panel. I moved the character set to that panel, and then started to mess around with the panel settings (auto hide, show hide buttons, and expand, to be specific.) So far so good, until I moved the panel from the right side of the screen to the top. I already had a panel here, and it seemed not to like hiding a panel when there was already one on the top.

When the new panel hid itself, all my panels stopped responding (any clicks on them did nothing) and my processor started going at 100%. I tried a reboot and the only thing that changed is that now I can't even see my panels. I'm guessing I need to change the settings back manually through the prompt, but I don't know how to do that. I am using 10.04 and have not upgraded gnome since upgrading to 10.04.

Ubuntu :: Can't "Add To Panel", "Move", Or Hardly Anything On The Panel?

I've recently moved to ubuntu netbook remix. It's been a little rough but I've figured out my previous problem. However I have a new one.When right clicking the panel "add to panel" disappears. I looked it up and it seems that "Windows Picker" takes up most of the space and it's hard to find. Well I eventually found the sweet spot but "Add to Panel", "Move", and pretty much everything but "About" and "Properties" is grayed out

Ubuntu :: System Freezes When Starting X

Jun 6, 2010

I've trouble with booting up xubuntu koala:
When switching to the x11-login, the computer freezes during the change of the screen-resolution. Even switching to a console (ctrl+alt+F1/F2/F3...), ctrl+alt+del or pushing the power-button is not possible. After switching off the PC manually, it won't boot at all and freezes directly after switching on again (at bios-time).

Turning the PC off and on again helps - everything is okay afterwards. This doesn't happen always but it is annoying. Sometimes I have to try this procedure 5 o6 times until I can use the computer. Which of the thousand of log-files is the right one to look in? I am using Xubuntu and a Ati Radeon Xpress Graphics card, along with an AMD64 and the 64-Bit-Version of Xubuntu.

Ubuntu :: NTB Freezes Display Turns Off After Starting XFCE?

Nov 10, 2010

I have fresh installation of Ubuntu server upgraded with apt-get dist-upgrade and with XFCE4 installed on my notebook. The problem is whenever I type startxfc, startx or X, the NTB freezes, CRT display connected to docking station/port replicator turns off, LCD in NTB gets black. The system does not respong to any signal, even the alt+sysrq ones. If I even install Xubuntu-desktop, as the X gets loaded every start, system everytime hangs after few seconds and I cannot do anything. Now I reinstalled and tried autoconfiguration with Xorg -configure. If I start the X with this configuration file, the result is still the same. Log at /var/log/X11/ seems to be blank.

Any ideas? Should i try to get drivers for my video card? I thought this is not necessary, the X server should start without anything, even only with basic resolution settings. As I looked, the video card chipset (Intel 82852/82855) is detected in my /root/xorg.conf.new file.
