Ubuntu :: How To Remove Programs Auto-installed With Xubuntu-desktop?

Jan 19, 2011

I am using Ubuntu Maverick and I wanted to try the xubuntu desktop environment, so I installed xubuntu-desktop package from synaptic package manager. There were many programs automatically installed with the xubuntu-desktop.After trying the xubuntu desktop, I didn't like it and removed it from synaptic package manager but it didn't remove the programs which were automatically installed with it.Is there any way to remove those programs without having to remove them one by one?

Ubuntu :: Gnome3 - Changed The Theme In Tweak To 'dust And Sand' But Don't Get The Window Frames Changing

May 25, 2011

I've changed the theme in tweak to 'dust and sand' but I don't get the window frames changing. There's a blue surround that didn't change with the theme change. Also I'm assuming the button layout will revert once the window frames do....Like the gnome3 interface better than unity though.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't See Window Opened In Front Of VLC

May 6, 2011

I have strange problem that I couldn't even find on google.

When I play any video in VLC or any other player my video is on top of everything.

For example, if I open a video and play it - everything looks ok. But, if I open another window "above" VLC, video suddenly appears at top and I can't see window opened in front of VLC.

This print-screen will make it more clear.

Fedora :: Opened Error Box Saying 'don't Appear To Have Window Manager'

Jun 1, 2009

I have just had a wee problem with the XFCE 4 Desktop on my Acer Aspire One with the Fedora 10 OS. Netbook worked OK this AM before work; shut down as usual. On returning from work, the Netbook seemed to boot as normal. But I only had one workspace instead of two (my usual), and when I tried to start Firefox, it was 2/3rds it's normal size and none of the usual '_ [] X' boxes in the the upper right hand corner! I tried booting into an earlier kernel version, but still the same. Had I accidentally altered the settings by any chance? Opened 'Fedora','Settings Manager', and clicked on 'Window manager'. But it just opened an error box, saying 'you do not appear to have a Window Manager'! Went (through google) to the XFCE webpage. The windows manager is called 'xfwm4'. Opened a terminal and tried 'top' - no xfwm4 process seemed to be running. So I quit out of 'top', typed 'xfwm4' and hit enter.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 DVD Hanging - No Window Opened To Start Process

Dec 27, 2010

I downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 and made created a DVD. When I started installing it, I'm not able to do it. I think its hanging. This is what happening: First I found a screen saying 'ubuntu 10.10' and it loaded for some time then I got a screen with a black color task bar at the top of the screen, then after some time it turned into white color and after some time it disappeared. Nothing else happened. I didn't find any pop-up window to start installation of OS..

But when I tried this in my friends house, I found that instead of 'ubuntu 10.10' there came 'Ubuntu' LOGO and it was little bit slow but a pop-up window opened to start installation..
Why its not coming in my PC..
my computer configuration :
Windows XP, SP 2
256 MB RAM, 1.81 Ghz
AMD 64 Athlon Processor 1800+
I want to shift my OS to Ubuntu completely.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Open My Pen Drive - Previously Opened In Window Vista ?

Apr 6, 2010

i usually use my pendrive in windows vista but when today i tried to open it in ubuntu 9.10 it does not show up. i know that it is mounted because i could see it in the "USB START UP DISC CREATOR" (IN SYSTEM->ADMINISTRATION->USB START UP DISC CREATOR) [See the screen shot. ]. i think since i had never tried to open my Pen drive in ubuntu before and always open it in win vista, that's why this problem is coming up.

Ubuntu :: Image Viewer Opened From Nautilus Doesn't Change Active Window / Fix It?

Sep 1, 2010

There's something very annoying about how Nautilus opens "image viewer" windows.
They open, I can see them, but when I press the keyboard, it's still Nautilus which gets the commands.
This is because Nautilus stays the active window!

Most annoyingly, when I want to have a quick look at an image, and then close it, Nautilus closes instead (Alt+F4).

Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
How to solve it?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: ATI 3D Accel Fail - Screen Would Occasionally Blank When Opened A Window

Jul 16, 2010

I booted the 11.3 live cd (KDE) and it worked great, so I installed openSUSE. After installation my video acted funny - the screen would occasionally blank when I opened a window, moved or resized a window, etc. It's as if the video driver decided to redraw the entire screen.

So I rebooted the live CD to see what was different and noticed this:

So it seems the 3D driver is an issue. Is there a way I can tell SUSE to just use the swrast 3D driver?

Fedora :: Notified Of 879 Updates When Desktop Opened

Jul 28, 2011

I've had Fedora 15 installed on this machine for about three weeks. Today I installed Q-cad for the first time and open it to make sure it would launch. I left the machine for about an hour and when I opened the desktop, I was notified of 879 updates. A quick glance and the updates applied to everything from grub to gimp and lots in between. is it normal to have so many updates dumped to me all at once?

Debian :: Opened Windows 'wobble' When Dragged Around On The Desktop

May 24, 2011

OK so that probably wasn't the best subject line as it was a hard one to describe.

Using Wheezy on an Acer Aspire One 5737 laptop. After a recent update now when I drag an open window around on the desktop it well wobbles in a distorted manner, the same goes when scrolling the page doesn't scroll smoothly it, well, wobbles. I have had the same issue in the past with Lenny on a laptop and I had to install video drivers it fix it however I 'think' Debian now supplies it's own drivers, is this correct? I'm not all that good with the video aspects of Linux. Is there something I need to check or maybe reinstall to correct thsi problem?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To Natty Fails - Kubuntu - Xubuntu Installed

Apr 29, 2011

I have a problem, because installation of ubuntu 11.04 will fail if I try to.

I have also Kubuntu and Xubuntu installed, which I regret a lot because I cannot uninstall them as well...

The problem is that I have installed a one-time-activation proprietary software so a fresh install is no option.

The error when upgrading is, that "xubuntu-desktop" cannot be marked for upgrade!

Ubuntu :: Xubuntu Mounted Drives On Desktop?

Jul 27, 2010

I have installed Xubuntu on an old laptop which has a floppy disk.

On the desktop where mounted drives will normally appear, it constantly shows the floppy disk on the desktop even though there is not floppy inside, so I have disabled the desktop from showing mounted drives, however now anything else like a CD or USB drive will not show up on the desktop. Is there a way to choose what types of devices are shown on the desktop?

I have considered disabling the floppy from the BIOS(assuming that is possible), but I would rather not go down that road just yet.

Ubuntu :: Enabling Desktop Effects In Xubuntu 10.10?

Nov 27, 2010

I tried out Xubuntu 10.10 on one of my older computers. Got it installed without a problem. Added the restricted driver module that I needed Nvidia, added the Compiz settings manager, but I cant seem to find a way to enable desktop effects. I realize that Xubuntu uses the XFCE window manger which is sort of light weight compared to Gnome or KDE, so I am asking if anyone has managed to get the desktop effects running in a similar environment. I checked and observed that the nvidia module has been loaded.
