OpenSUSE :: Move Widgets On Launcher Panel?

Jun 2, 2011

This question concerns the system panel/launcher panel / the panel with the launcher that normally appears across the top or bottom of the screen. The default system panel layout was nice, but, I screwed it up by accidentally deleting the task manager. I put the task manager back but now my clock & system tray are to the left of the task manager, and, I can't just drag things around. Is there a trick to organizing the widgets on this panel or is it broken? Every time I try to move something, it basically ignores me and adds it to the right of everything else.

KDE 4.6.3
Opensuse 11.4 x86_64

Ubuntu :: Firefox Will Not Restart From The Panel Or A Terminal?

Feb 20, 2010

After some use, firefox will not restart from the panel or a terminal. Looking in '.mozilla/firefox' I find:


lrwxrwxrwx 1 dave dave 15 2010-02-19 20:55 lock ->

The number at the end changes everytime I remove it. Is this something trying to get in or something trying to get out? Or what? This has been going on for a while.

Ubuntu Installation :: Panel Transparency Is Lost On Restart?

May 2, 2011

I have had no issue with the panel's transparency in previous Ubuntu versions. This all started w/ Natty. I set up transparency (right click on panel, Nav through Properties > Background, Check "Solid Color," slide bar to my preferred opacity, & click "Close." The panel looks as follows: But when I restart the computer it goes grey:

killall command doesn't work, I have moved the panel, I have created a new one. The "closest" I found were people complaining (back in December) that the theme switched to grey. But I don't think the panel is taking up another theme, it is simply not painting the transparent image.

I didn't like Unity so I disabled it (still installed). I also removed indicator-me and indicator-messenger via synaptic as I have since Lucid Lynx. I removed the black bubble notifications and removed the shutdown/logout/restart confirmation/countdown prompt w/ a couple of code-hacks I found online as I have since Jaunty Jackalope. I also tried to change the opacity though an option inside Compiz's "Opacity, Brightness and Saturation". This also made AWN icons transparent so I undid it. I use the "Glossy P" theme w/ "Snow Apple" icons.

Ubuntu :: Adding Widgets Or At Least The Date To The Top Bar In Unity?

May 8, 2011

In Ubuntu 10.10 one was able to add widgets, such as the full date (not just the time) to the top bar in Gnome. Can you do this in Unity? I like being able to quickly look at the bar and see the date (I'm forgetful) but all that is there is the time. I do miss not having the applications bar where you can look and see just what applications are running and quickly cycle between them. Right now I need to mouse over the dock (and sometimes do a little mouse dance) to open it and then scroll down it to access something that is open and happens to be at the bottom of the list. I felt that having the bar exposed was more efficient, although maybe not as elegant looking.

OpenSUSE :: Lost Widgets In Task Bar?

Aug 9, 2010

Very new installation of openSuse 11.3 on T42 laptop. I was having trouble with a persistent notification and in trying to remove it have lost several important widgets including the speaker volume, wifi connection and upgrade notification icons.I cannot identify some of these from the add widgets option. Even tried a new installation with re format of root, (but retaining /home,) thinking that I would get all back to how it was, but no, the fresh installation has the widgets still missing. Is it possible the desktop configuration is on /home partition?

OpenSUSE :: KDE Widgets Do Not Render Correctly?

Aug 20, 2010

I installed Suse 11.3 a couple days ago. I have been using Ubuntu for the last 2 years and wanted to try something new. Everything has been working great so far except the widgets.

To add a widget, I click the icon on the right of the toolbar, click "Add Widget", and drag the widget to the desktop. When the widget appears it is stretched to the full width of the display and everything is scrunched vertically. A screenshot of the problem is below.

General :: GNOME Screensaver Widgets

Apr 10, 2010

Is there a way to add widgets to a Gnome screensaver? I think this can be done with KDE 4, but I've never liked KDE very much. I'm a programmer and comfortable with writing code if needed.

I'd like to be able to:

See the weather and forecast
Control Rhythmbox
Use a flash card widget for reviewing musical concepts

The reason I want these on the screensaver is that I have login restrictions. I would like to be able to do a very limited subset of activities without having to log in.

Slackware :: Password Lock Kde Widgets?

Dec 4, 2010

My 2 year old daughter likes to "type" on the computers in the house. In actuality she is raking her fingers across the keyboard. This frequently ends up with her adding dozens of panels to the desktop and/or removing existing widgets. Is there a better way to lock the widgets that isn't easily undone with a keystroke, like a password or a settings file?

Ubuntu :: Way To 'hide' All 'folder Widgets' From Desktop With Mouse Action

Feb 12, 2011

is there a way to 'hide' all 'folder widgets' from the desktop with a mouse (or keyboard) action? I mean hide as in 'make invisible', not as in 'close forever'I'm trying to mimic this Window's app: URL..., which is nothing more than a 'folder widget' for windows. The only thing that this app has that I can not reproduce in KDE is the ability to hide all 'folder widgets' with a mouse action (Fences does it with a double click on the desktop).

Slackware :: Xterm Variants - Configuring Widgets

Apr 10, 2010

Just upgrading to 13.0, and one thing I had in KDE 3.5 was a larger (normal) sized xterm, and a smaller sized one. The small sized ones are handy for CL scripts and don't chew up as much screen-estate.

I know I can change defaults in .xinitrc, but I don't know how to make a widget for the small xterm.

Ubuntu Installation :: System Automatically Tried To Restart But On The Restart Got The 'terminal' View

Apr 30, 2011

I have just finished the upgrade of the latest version and I'm at the point of my system restating.

My system automatically tried to restart but on the restart I got the 'terminal' view. It stopped when asking for my username (it never normally asks for this before the grub menu) and then password. I didn't get any further than that.

I now have on my screen (still in the terminal view before the grub menu)

"name@name-desktop:...$ "

I'm on my phone now so I don't actually have the symbol for before the dollar sign but your know what it is. The raised S on a 90 degree angle.

Ubuntu :: Changing Themes Moves Titlebar Widgets From Left To Wrong?

May 17, 2010

When I used Karmic, I only had to use gconf-editor to set the titlebar widgets to the left once, and they stayed there when I changed themes, no matter what theme I set. Since I installed Lucid, every time I change themes (other than to radiance or ambiance), my titlebar widgets are moved from the upper left to the upper right, and I have to use gconf-edit or to switch them back to the way they were. Why is this happening and what can I do to stop it?

OpenSUSE :: Plasma Widgets - Black Screen And Everything Crashes

Sep 7, 2011

I played a bit with plasma widgets and every once in a while everything crashes, I see only black screen and have to restart. After restarting everything worked normal. I found some tutorials for opensuse, and started with some basic shortcuts, such as showing active windows and activities. Then I had black screen again (which I've come accustomed to) and restarted pc expecting everything will be just fine like it was after previous reboots.

But then I saw that all activities are identical and everything I worked on has been deleted. I found in activities window that I have 20 or more activities and I didn't know where they had come from. I am stuck and I didn't see any activity that will restore my desktops to original state, and in my searching through activities I also had a lot of black screens. I use opensuse 11.4 x64 and kde 4.6.

Ubuntu :: How To Restart Network Adapter (not Service) Without Restart?

Mar 13, 2010

I have a suspend problem in my laptop. Sometimes, when resuming from suspend, the network adapter is down (that is, the network does not work and the light of the network adapter is off). Restarting the network service doesn't work, because I think that the system forgot about the hardware, and probably the driver should be reloaded.Does anyone knows how to do that?(ps. /etc/init.d/networking restart does not work, because the hardware driver is not being recognized anymore).

Programming :: Creating Image Viewer Window Using Python And GTK Widgets

Jul 7, 2010

I'm a total newbie in Linux and only have limited experience of programming - in Hypercard, Javascript and some Python on the Mac platform. Now I want to get started with high-level programming and scripting on Ubuntu 10.04. The project I have in mind is fairly simple: I want to create an image viewer window that I can bring up on a RAW image file in Nautilus - with the help of dcraw, to inspect the image at 100% without going into a separate application.

The viewer should have a button that if clicked, would then convert the file to a TIFF, again using dcraw. That's it, that's all there is to it. My initial impression is that I should be able to achieve this using Python and GTK widgets. Am I right? How can I find the commands and structures I will need to work with?

Fedora :: Starting Without GDM - Switching To Openbox/fluxbox And 3rd Party Panels/widgets

Jun 4, 2011

I installed Fedora 15 on my netbook the other day and I decided that I will remove everything but the absolutely needed to make things lighter, faster and less time/power consuming. I thought that GDM isn't needed on a single-user machine. Maybe I can remove it and have a script run on boot and take care of (auto-)loging in and starting the DE? (Xfce, but I plan switching to openbox/fluxbox and 3rd party panels/widgets etc). Is it possible? (and does it worth it?)
