Ubuntu :: Text In Some Applications Is Missing Or Invisible

May 23, 2011

I'm finding that some applications (2 thus far) are not properly displaying text. I first noticed it in Firefox, where it appears that NO text is being rendered because the search and "feeling lucky" buttons are both about 1.5 characters wide and blank inside. I'll include screen-caps below to exemplify what I mean. In addition to Firefox, I just tonight noticed that my PDF reader is apparently rendering all text in white (even though the same PDF opens up fine with black text on my Windows desktop computer). For the PDF's, I can see that there is text there because I can do a Ctrl+A and copy, and then when I paste it into gedit I can see all the text.

Some background: I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit w/gnome. The first thing I did after installing Ubuntu was to install the BlackBuntu theme by copying appropriate files from /usr/share/ from the BlackBuntu live USB.

What I've tried: I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox a couple of times, but ultimately I just installed Chromium which is working fine and is not experiencing the same issue that Firefox is. I've tried changing my theme back to default, changing all the fonts (under Appearance Preferences), and nothing is fixing this. I'm about to just do a full reinstall of the OS, paying careful attention to at exactly what point in my process everything gets screwed up, but I'm hoping that someone has an idea that I can try before I have to reinstall the system.

Ubuntu :: Font Colors In Maverick - Invisible Text

Jan 18, 2011

I'm having trouble with font colors in maverick. Some pages with ordinary text do not display properly, i.e. - text is invisible. It highlights a bit when I highlight it with ctrl + a, but that's about it. I've tried editing Firefox fonts (not working), editing system fonts (not working) and disabling compiz special effects (not working). I figured that maybe there's some corruption somewhere as I've installed loads of stuff in the past months and so should reinstall fonts, but couldn't find info on the net on how to achieve this.

Debian Multimedia :: Text Invisible On Epiphany And Iceweasel?

Jan 24, 2011

I can't find a solution for not seeing any texts on html5 web pages. I haven't found any other report about such an odd behaviour on the web so far. Even on the new W3C web page (see the screenshot below for details) I can't see any texts. They are just invisible. I can mark and copy them, but there is nothing to see on Iceweasel 3.0.6 and Epiphany 2.22.3.

Because both browsers behave the same way I guess it's not a browser issue, but something more basic. My Debian Lenny stable should be unblemished because I've never used anything else than the main sources. I can't believe, that the W3C has switched to a new standard without propper fallback-support for older browser versions...

Ubuntu :: Missing / Invisible Power Button Icon In Natty

May 16, 2011

My power button icon on the toolbar in Unity is invisible -- that is, it occupies the far right-most column of pixels and displays no icon. (See attached screenshot -- the power button menu only comes up with the mouse all the way to the far right (where you can't really see it in the screencap.)).Any idea how to get it back? It's not a big deal, but it'd be nice to avoid being made fun of by my OS X/Wind0ze-using friends for having an invisible power button.I have Natty installed, but using the same /home (and thus the same config files) from previous installs. Might that be the problem?

I'm running Lucid Lynx 10.04 x64 here and the following issues:

1. How do I change the icon text for applications?

2. I can't seem to burn DVDs successfully (CDs burn ok though). I've tried burning with K3b, Nero and Brasero - all fail to produce a readable DVD. My burner seems to produce readable DVDs when running WinXP with Nero though.

Ubuntu :: Titlebars Missing In All GTK Applications?

Mar 2, 2010

I actually have no idea what the cause of this problem could be, but all my GTK programs don't display a menubar O.o

For example, the main menu of gedit with File, Edit, Help etc is just not there. I usually keep the menu hidden in the terminal, but checking the 'Show Menubar' option doesnt bring it back. Rhythmbox as well.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Theme - Text Blotted Out In OpenOffice Applications

Jan 20, 2011

I have been using Ubuntu 10.10 for a few months now. I enjoy working with it, but there is one strange problem with Open Office (and Inkscape as well). When I attempt to work with either the word processor or spread sheet (this probably applies to other Open Office applications as well) under the default theme in Ubuntu, inevitably I get text and other elements blotted out with line smudges.

I have included a couple of screen shots, but I am wondering if this is a recurring problem with theme support (Open Office doesn't really use GTK/Gnome, does it?) or if it is some strange affect with the nvidia driver that I installed (version 260-19-06, my card is a GeForce Go 7150M). I have also noticed a slightly different problem, with Inkscape, where the ruler marks that track. The cursor movement don't delete themselves when the cursor moves, so the little triangles build up.

OpenSUSE :: Some Applications Not All To Print Text In Landscape Correctly

Apr 28, 2011

My setup:
openSUSE 11.4.
Acer Extensa 5635ZG
Epson Stylus Photo PX710W, connected with WiFi

I have just discovered that I can't print text from libreoffice writer/calc if the layout is set to landscape. The letters seems to have been stretched and printed over each other. If I print the same document in kword/kspread everything is printed as it should be. I have generated a pdf of the document and printed from okular/acroread, even then it's not printed correctly. Although it looks ok in okular/acroread. What else that can be seen is that when it's wrongly printed the printout is printed in the opposite direction compared to when it's printed correctly. I.e. the tail comes first on the paper so to say. Where should I begin to search for faults?

a couple places where the shaded areas are missing.Have you previously applied with the C.B.E? "Readonly content cannot be changed No modifications will be accepted." Can I add a shaded area in so I can fill this in, or can I disable the read only part?

Ubuntu :: Openoffice Missing Menu Text / What To Do?

Jan 14, 2010

Good day, having a spot of bother with Openoffice, for some unknown reason im finding majority of the menu & button names have been replaced with "O" characters instead. Its doesn't effect all, but for example in the Writer, the only drop down menu at the top being render correctly is "Table". code...
All the buttons/sub buttons still work if you can guess where their pointing!

The only way I can seem to solve it is to remove "openoffice.org-gnome" & "openoffice.org-gtk" package.

Ive tried a complete reinstall already. Its usable without the above gnome and gtk extras but obviously not as nice to look at.

Im sure it was working fine the last time I used it?

OpenSUSE :: 11.4 - KDE Applications Missing Their Icon PNG Files

Mar 11, 2011

I run a OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with Gnome & KDE desktop. When I run my Gnome desktop all my KDE applications are missing their usr/share/icons/hicolor/48*48/apps/nameofapplication.png picture. The KDE applications work, and when I go to that destination file the png. picture is present. When I run a KDE environment, my KDE applications (that are missing in Gnome) have their icon 48*48 picture. Any idea why when running the Gnome environment, there is a missing path to the png. file for only the KDE applications?

At least out of evolution or thunderbird, still chrome is opened when clicking on a link.

Applications :: Gcc Make Error, Missing 'libgcc.mvars'?

Dec 10, 2010

well i suppose this makes the problem ever more complex because i'm acutally attempting to make a cross compile tool chain from amd64 to arm.i've successfully built binutils and configured the kernel headers. now i'm stuck on gcci'm running Code: sudo make -j 4 when i get the issue (the -j 4 if you don't know helps speed up the process considerably by using more threads)

anyways it tells me: Code: make[2]: Entering directory `/home/alex/tmp/gcc-4.4.5/arm-linux/libgcc'
Makefile:143: ../.././gcc/libgcc.mvars: No such file or directory
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `../.././gcc/libgcc.mvars'. Stop.

Software :: Missing Text When Using Wine

Oct 22, 2010

Normally wine works well for me but I'm having trouble with one particular Windows app called Communicator, a voip softphone. The app starts up and the window is put on the screen but there is no text. Check boxes are drawn and filled and input boxes are shown, but still no text. All my system fonts are installed for wine to work. Here is the output if I run from the command line:


I'm suspicious about the line above: err:module:import_dll Library QtSvg4.dll but I'm not sure what to do because the file DOES exist in the referenced directory.

Ubuntu :: Evolution Import-Some Messages Missing Body Text

Oct 22, 2010

I have started using Evolution because I gave up tying to get Thunderbird or Eudora work. I kept getting "unable to locate mail spool file" when trying to receive mail. I was able to import my mailboxes from my Windows Eudora. But in those mailboxes, about half of those emails had the headers but no body text. What is causing this and can it be fixed.

More importantly tho', when I import my contacts from Eudora, they are a mess, and pretty much unusable. I see a series of rectangles with "alias" on top and "real name" underneath and then when I click on it, expanded below is the alias and email address. There are two of these alias/names per rectangle and they scroll across. Any idea how I can fix that other than manually typing in each address.

OpenSUSE :: Applications Missing From KDE Menu And File Associations Is Not Working?

Feb 17, 2011

Only "Favourites", "Run Command" and "Leave" is shown on the classic KDE menu, same thing when switching to Launcher Menu Style. Missing Applications and everything else. File associations is not working. Double clicking any type of file it asks to install the program and the known applications menu is empty.

I tried to add a new user, same problem with that. I also noticed that when running Chrome it asks to be the default web browser each time even when I say yes.

I have not been messing with anything, I suspect it happened during a update, but I got the exact same repositories on 2 other x64 machines where there is no problem.

I'm using KDE 4.6.0 from the factory repository.

I tried to reinstall some KDE4 packages without any luck.

I do not want to reinstall the entire system or downgrade KDE.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Brasero Burn Process Successful But CD Text Missing

May 13, 2010

I've just installed Xubuntu last night on a spare drive because I really wanted to try it out. Install and initial setup (upgrades, extras and so on) worked like a charm, then I got to burn an audio cd with Brasero starting from some mp3s floating around my external media drive. The burn process itself went good and the CD is fully readable, but I notice that CD-text is missing.

So, when I added files to the main window of Brasero id3 tags were there (I've seen them, plus I set each and every of them via Easytag before putting the files in my external media drive so I'm sure of that), but once the CD was finished there was no CD-text at all. Maybe I just have to download some additional packages which aren't included in Brasero or have missed some menu item about CD-text?

May 22, 2011

I am using a VRS for ftp operations. I have bought it with OpenSuSe 11.3 installed without any Control Panel installed. I have used NX and installed IceWM as windows manager. It works really great. Then system wanted me to upgrade. I did so. After upgrade to 11.4, my programs screwed up. They don't show any text at all but squares instead. I have tried everything i know to fix this but i could not manage to repair it.

My VRS has 512mb RAM , OpenSuse 11.4 (32-Bit) and has no control panel. I use yast through SSH Telnet client (Putty).

Applications :: Read Text That Scrolled Off The Screen In GNU Screen?

I've just dicovered GNU screen, a program that allows you to setup multiple terminals, from which you can detach and re-attach, so that you can have programs running in a session to a remote server and then log off from that server while the programs keep running! Great for over night copying jobs on my file server. the output of a command is rather long and the text scrolls off the screen. How do i scroll up to read the output? Shift + page up doesn't work...
