Ubuntu :: Transparency For Gnome's Window-switcher-applet?

May 7, 2010

panels can be made transparent by clicking on preferences/background.

But for some reason there is no obvious way to change the transparency of applets. Their transparency depends on the current theme. For example with the theme "radiance" window-switcher and date are opaque. With "human-clearlooks" both are transparent.

Is there a way change the transparency without changing the theme?

After killing gnome-panel, this corrects itself.

Ubuntu :: How To Set Window Transparency With Compiz

Jul 27, 2010

I couldn't find a section for visual customization. Is it possible to make it so that windows not being used have a certain opacity, and windows being used have another? Also, how can you change the opacity of menus? I used to be able to do this, but it seems I've forgotten.

Ubuntu :: Transset - Set Window Transparency

Oct 11, 2010

If you install transset then you can set the transparency of your windows and this is very handy when you have lots going on and you can see through your current window that something underneath it has updated...

However transset doesn't seem to work lately? Does it still work for you? Does anyone know if this is this something that happened with a recent update ?

Ubuntu :: 3D Flip-up Window Switcher?

Jan 1, 2010

I'm pretty sure I saw this described on this board, with a screenshot, but I simply can't find anything about it: A window switcher (probably a compiz plugin) that displays a 3D view of all windows lying flat on a receding surface, with the selected one flipping up upright.

I assumed it was built in to compiz, but when I went to look it was not any one of the ones I can find in ccsm - must be a separate package. And by then I had closed the post.

Ubuntu :: Shift Switcher Minimized Window?

Oct 16, 2010

I am using the Shift Switcher on Compiz to switch windows. Also i don't use any taskbar to show what apps are open or not. Minimized windows are simply "invisible" as it were. When switching, minimized windows are represented by their icons. Instead i would like to see them as a thumbnail (as with maximized windows). Can i make Compiz do that?

Ubuntu :: Hot Keys, Window Switcher, No Title Bar?

Dec 29, 2010

I've been tweeking my gnome setup a lot lately...I have a 14 inch screen on my laptop and decided I didn't need title bars anymore....so I added a bunch new hot keys andinstead of eliminating the title bare, which kills the borders too, I changed the width to a minimum.If I use the window switcher, I can only see the window if that window is not minimized. All one can see is an icon telling you what program that window is using if that window is minimized. It looks great if the window is open on the desktop.Are there any work arounds anyone know s of or better compiz setups I could use ?

Ubuntu :: Disable ViewPoint Change On ALT+TAB (window Switcher)

May 10, 2010

I've recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and I don't like the fact the my viewpoint is being change when I use the window switcher (ALT+TAB). I tried going to the gconf-editor and changing the /apps/compiz/plugins/staticswitcher/screen0/options/auto_change_vp value to false, restarted.. it IS set to false, the CompizConfig settings manager shows that it is false, but for some reason it is still changing the viewpoint.

I tried disabling the window switcher completely just to see that the configuration works at all.. and it did work.. so, I'm not sure what to do so the view point won't change.

Ubuntu :: Window List / Keyboard Application Switcher?

Nov 7, 2010

Any of you ever heard of OS/2 WARP? My dad is a longtime user, as was I until I got my Mac (and now my netbook with Ubuntu). In any case, the OS is a tad...obsolete and my dad at some point wishes to try Ubuntu. In his current setup, he has a "Window List" that can be activated using a keyboard shortcut. It's a popup (not in a menu bar or "panel") that can be moved around and resized. From that you can use your keyboard to navigate to the program or window that you want. For instance, if I want to get to Firefox, I press Ctrl+Escape (to activate the Window List) and then I hit "F" as many times as needed to highlight "Firefox". Then I just hit "Enter" and I'm there. Anything similar out there for Ubuntu (it is preferable if the solution has text as well as icons or else can have the icons removed leaving only the text)

In addition, both him and I would be interested in some program for launching/switching to programs using keyboard shortcuts. On the Mac, I use Quicksilver for this, where it actually Launches the program if it's not open, and switches to it if it is. However, Gnome Do unfortunately lacks this functionality and I have no way to do it off the top of my head.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Window List Applet Not Raising Window?

Feb 19, 2010

Fresh install of 9.10 shows buggy behavior for the 'Window List Applet' in the gtk panel.

Usually, clicking on a button in the window list applet does nothing at all. It doesn't un-minimise it, set focus to the window, or bring it to the front.

In 8.10, the window was always raised immediately and given focus.

Sometimes it works, but I've not figured out the state in which it does. I currently have 10 windows open, clicking through them all in the window list raises most of them, but on some nothing happens.

Modifying the 'Window List Preferences' dialog does nothing to fix the problem.

I have checked System->Windows->Window Selection to 'Select windows when mouse moves over them'. 'Raise selected windows after an interval' is not selected.

Linux kai 2.6.31-19-generic #56-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jan 28 02:39:34 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Ubuntu :: Unabling Metacity Transparency In Gnome 3?

Jul 23, 2011

For whatever reasons, I cannot seem to enable metacity transparency. I'm running the 64 bit version of Ubuntu 11.04 and I broke Unity in favor of Gnome 3. I have enabled metacity compositing and adjusted the opacity to the desired level via the configuration editor.

However, there is no transparency whatsoever. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm currently working hard on creating Gnome Shell themes and GTK+ 3 themes that look and work well together.

Ubuntu :: Lost Gnome Panel Transparency On Upgrade To 10.04

Jul 25, 2010

I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 10.04 and things went pretty smooth. The only real issue is that I lost the transparency settings for the menu & indicator applets on my top knome panel. I simply don't remember how i did it last time, and i've been searching the net for an hour for a solution with no luck. Many results suggested the use of the Compiz Settings Manager's opacity settings, but that opacity applies to everything, including the text & icons. I thought i used the "gnome color chooser" package to do it last time, but I cannot find the option in the gui. how to make the background of the menu (applications/places/system) and indicator applet have transparent backgrounds while retaining full text/icon brightness?

Ubuntu :: Disable Gnome-terminal Transparency In Compiz ?

Feb 14, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 with Compiz enabled (Visual Effects = Normal, in the System-Preferences-Appearance)

The gnome-terminals are transparent. I would like to disable the transparency, because I have a lot of terminals open at the same time and I don't want to be able to see one below another one.

In the gnome-terminal preferences, Background is set to "solid colour". However, Compiz seems to be over-riding this somehow.

I have the CompizConfig Settings Manager installed. I have looked through it but I can't find an option which disables the transparency for terminals. I tried the Opacity, Brightness and Saturation plugin, but it only allows you to vary the transparency level, not disable it entirely, and there doesn't seem to be a way of setting a default.

I like Compiz very much, so I don't want to disable the desktop effects. Does anyone know how to just disable the gnome-terminal transparency?

I'm not using lubuntu. Somehow I selected that and I can't get rid of it now. I'm on Ubuntu with Gnome.

General :: Transparency For Terminal -gnome/ubuntu - Zorin ?

Jun 9, 2011

I am currently reading a few different command line tutorials and have my terminal set to almost completely clear. In dreamlinux it made it easy to see what the tutorial said, While still letting me use the terminal as I read. In zorinOS (Ubuntu build using Gnome) I have it set to almost total clear, and what I get for the background is my wallpaper ... Regardless of whether there is a window open or not. The only changes I have made are in the preference settings, and not to any files.

But on the part where I set transparency here are my options (grey is not selectable,[x] is chosen option,{dir} is drop menu, --*---- *=current setting):

Debian Multimedia :: Transparency With Gnome-Terminal ?

Feb 25, 2010

When I was running it before, that was Debian as well, I was able to make my gnome-terminal window decorations completely transparent and/or gone - so the terminal appeared to be typing directly on the desktop.

The method I used before to accomplish this was pretty straightforward, these options could be found in the actual terminal's interface and menu options.

However, now, I get the following result:

Click on the image for a larger size image so as you're able to see the picture in more detail.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Classic - Lost Workspace Switcher After Upgrades?

I use the Gnome Classic DE in 11.04. Last night, safe-upgrade made a small number of package upgrades (three or four). When I rebooted my PC, this morning, my workspace switcher (the four tiny squares in the bottom panel on the right side of the screen) are gone. I use them regularly.Also, is there any history to identify what packages were upgraded last night so I can look for bugs?

Also the Cairo Dock bugs out with the workspace switcher applet attached to it. I can change desktops with key commands fine. It would just be nice if this could be fixed.

Debian Multimedia :: Jessie Upgrade - Gnome Terminal Transparency

May 1, 2015

Under wheezy, I could set gnome-terminal profile to partial transparency, i.e., to display the desktop wallpaper behind the text. (E.g., a picture of my girlfriend.) But after upgrade to Jessie, this option completely disappeared, and now I can only pick a solid color. Do I need to flip a setting or something to get this back? Am running default Gnome desktop (not fallback mode) though I think I only have 2D acceleration.
