Debian :: Conky - Full Screen Config / 2 Conky Configs?

Jun 13, 2011

Said that all the config i find put all the info in one place of the screen, in this example on the right side:


or like conky colors where you can put in either side, or other complex examples that use folders with images..that at least i need one day to study all the variables it has...

What i want is something simple, in my black background i dont want images and effects, only white simple text.

My problem is: i want for instance my specs above, my log info in the middle, my music info bellow (above my clock) and in conky config i'm hitting my head in the wall....

For instance if i use my facebook script to appear in the midle how the hell can i put my music info bellow without ruined the facebook in the midle...do i need 2 conky configs?

Ubuntu :: OpenOffice Very Ugly Formatting

Mar 4, 2011

I am simply fed up of using OpenOffice word processor. It's formatting and bullets and numbering system is a total chaos. Even when manually typing the numbers the OpenOffice word processor tries to be clever and "detects" that I'm trying to bullet my points and then mangle all the formatting again.Microsoft word was much better, I've been using it for many years and never faced such a silly problem. I think I'll switch back to windows just because of MS Word -- it had more features, looked better and nesting paragraphs is easy.

Ubuntu :: Panels And Buttons Are Ugly

Mar 15, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu on my new computer, after previously installing it on my laptop, and it worked flawlessly, except now that it's up and running, I realized that gnome is really screwed up. The panels and buttons are ugly, and all the applets on the panels are duplicated after I log in.

Ubuntu :: Ugly Font Rendering Inside Some Webpages ?

Apr 2, 2010

This happens to me with any browser (tested: Firefox, Chrome and Opera) and DE (tested; Gnome, KDE, LXDE). While for the most part, the text is OK, some text looks quite messed up (please look at the attachment for an example).

By inspecting the affected pages, I fond that usually (maybe ever?) when the characters are garbled, the font is Tahoma.

Then I tested with The Gimp and its text tool: I choosed Tahoma and I tried to type something inside an image. Same issue. It seems to happens when the font size is 14 px or >= 17 px.

Ubuntu :: Proprietary Nvidia Drivers = Ugly Bootup?

Sep 26, 2010

I'm using an Nvidia Geforce 6x card (can't remember the exact number). When I do not have the proprietary driver enabled, the Ubuntu logo and status bar, as well as various boot up messages, look very nice. They are scaled properly and I'm impressed with how they look. When I do enable the proprietary driver, the screen resolution during boot up is much smaller, and therefore everything looks ugly. The little status bar under the Ubuntu logo suddenly fills up and "freezes." The transition from login screen to desktop is jerky.

Unfortunately if I disable my card, I cannot use desktop effects or even view flash videos in full screen mode. (I'm assuming nouveau still has work to do.) Is there any way I can have proprietary drivers enabled and a nice boot up experience?

Ubuntu :: Ugly Theme After Nvidia Driver Install

Oct 15, 2010

I've tried the 'current' proprietary Nvidia drivers in the repository and also the newest from Nvidias home page. Both of them gives me, regardless of what theme I choose, ugly windows. The only things that are shown correct according to the theme is the minimise, maximise, close buttons (correct colour and form). Everything else is grey and ugly. I have successfully activated 'Normal' visual effects, so composite/opengl seems to work.The only window that is according to the theme is System/Preferences/Appearance!?

Fedora :: Gstreamer Ugly From Source

Aug 15, 2011

I have this computer I actively use. Sys-admin forbids us from using third party repos. Compiling from source is allowed if a copy of the source sent to him. He made it clear he won't help unless system is fubar.Because I choosed fedora, I ended up with only pc in whole room which cannot play music and video. I have root access so;I got lame from sourceforge and gstreamer ugly 0.10.16 from freedesktop.I did '.configure','make' and 'make install' on lame and gstreamer. I wasn't able to read the whole stream of text flowed by make and make install, but other than few "defined but not used" errors I didn't seen any big errors.I tried play mp3 with totem but it failed. I tried extract the post and pre install scripts from gstreamer-plugins-bad-0.10.22-1.fc15.i686.rpm fo rpmfusion to learn what else needed to done after/before install, but post and pre scripts were empty. Do I have to do something else to get it to work?

Ubuntu :: Bootup And Shutdown Screens Have Ugly Terminal Text

May 4, 2010

My home desktop computer upgraded to Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 without any problems. However, after all was said and done, the boot up and shut down screens look like crap. They are all in terminal text, and without any graphics. I have attached pictures of what they look like. This can't be right. Is there a way I can set the system to use the proper graphics when booting up and shutting down? I like my computer to be pretty.

This is what it does for most of the boot process:
It does this just before the screen where I enter my password.
This is how it looks when it shuts down:

Fedora :: Ugly Monospace Fonts In Evolution

May 27, 2011

I just upgraded my system from F14 to F15 and everything else is working quite well, but the monospace fonts in Evolution's mail windows are really ugly. Changing the fonts in Edit -> Preferences -> Mail Preferences -> General seems to have no effect on Evolution at all. Is anyone else having the same problem? Should I file a bug? Here's a screenshot of gedit and Evolution. In gedit, I've checked "Use the system fixed width font (Monospace)" and in Evolution I've checked "Use the same fonts as other applications". Still, the fonts in Evolution are different than in gedit and much uglier.

OpenSUSE :: 11.4 - Ugly Fonts In Java Applications

Jun 24, 2011

I have installed Netbeans IDE on my Netbook and on my PC (openSUSE 11.4 32 bit and openSUSE 11.4 64 bit). On both has the UI a ugly font. I don't really know how to change it. I already searched the web but I couldn't find anything related. Have a look how it looks like:

Uploaded with ImageShack.us. And then the "original": [URL]. OK, this picture is already 3 years old but I don't think that Oracle would change Netbeans UI font to look creepy. How I can change it to normal?
