Ubuntu :: Change Nautilus Windows Size And Colors In Gnome-shell?
May 22, 2011
No Matter what I do and change in gnome-tweak-tool, the window title bar won't change to anything else, won't go smaller, even the downloaded themes won't change the bar, and I cant seem to find the needed codes in xml to change them. photo is attached to illustrate the things I need to changeI need to change their size in the first place, and maybe change them to like ambiance or whatever. i've seen many guides on the net, and It still don't find the neeeded solution
In 10.04 Lucid my Nautilus scroll bars are white. The scroll bar slider (the icon that can be moved up and down with the cursor to scroll the window) is the exact same shade of white and the slider outline is pale grey. The lack of color contrast makes the slider hard to see. Is there a preference item somewhere that lets me change this color scheme?
I expected to find it in System >> Preferences >> Appearance >> Theme but I don't think there's anything there about the scroll bars. I think my monitor might be more contrasty than most, which is probably exacerbating the problem, but this is what I have to work with. I would rather fix it by changing a system setting than replacing the monitor.
fedora 13, Gnome, with the exception of Kdenlive... I need to change to match my gnome theme... I work in a dark environment so I use a dark theme... nearly impossible to use kdenlive as is...
If I remember correctly there was a utility in KDE to make gnome apps look nice, but can't find anything like that for gnome, can't find kcontrol in safe repos for some reason, maybe I'm looking for the wrong thing
Just wondering if it's possible to change the size of icons when Nautilus is in List View. I tried playing around with gtk-icon-sizes in the gtkrc file of my theme, but there doesn't seem to be a setting for it there. I could just zoom in/out, but when I have the icons the size I want them to be, the text is too small (see attachment).
I'm sorry if this is a trivial question. I want to know how the size of the gnome icons in toolbars (see pic) is specified. Those icons for 'new', 'open', 'save', ... that are used in Nautilus or Gedit. I just played around with the gtkrc of my theme, but I couldn't find any option there. Aren't the icons scaleable? Are there smaller icon sets available?
Karmic there was a tab inside "System->Preferences->Appearance" called "Interface" which allowed me to modify the keyboard shortcuts. I had <Backspace> to move backwards in Nautilis and <Shift><Backspace> to move forward.
Without this tab can anyone tell me how I can modify the shortcuts to do this? I have spent some time looking at gconf-editor but nothing is jumping out at me, particularly with regards to the back and forward browsing.
I feel like this is a RTFM question, so if anyone wants to just direct me to the right manual, that's fine.
I just installed gnome-shell and i cant seem to find anyway to customize anything, esp. the task bar, the clock, et cetera
is there a preferences gui or something that I cant find? I feel like i'm trying to use a mac....
It seems pretty sweet, but, i dont know how to get used to not having a window list... i dont wanna pull up the "activities window" or alt tab every time i want switch windows (esp when my hand is used to just moving to the top of the screen and clicking on the right window...
There's this autohide taskbar at the bottom of the screen, but i cant for the life of me figure out what it's for, or how to put things on it....
My laptop has a small flickering area at the bottom of the screen, about 1 cm high. It's a hardware problem.It's very annoying but I can just put a bit of dark paper over it. I would like to change the ubuntu (10.04) defaults so that the bottom of the screen is never used - I can change some windows, but is there a global way to stop all windows, menus etc from using that lower area
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix on my Gateway LT3103u. I noticed shortly into using it that it has a graphics bug every so often. Especially when I change the background image. Everything will change to a warped mix of colors and pixels. Everything is affected. My mouse, the bar at the top of the screen, text and all. My netbook runs on an AMD Athlon 64-bit processor with ATI Radeon X1270 HyperMemory up to 256MB graphics.
So far I have tried reinstalling, and even the 64bit desktop edition which had the same problem. Ive noticed that it freaks out when i scroll too quick, when changing background images, and on certain websites. Then other times its completely random. When it happens it looks similar to these: [URL]
All of a sudden I can no longer control the default size of my gnome terminal windows. The option is just gone from the preference window. If I look in gconf-editor my old values are still there but they are ignored.
I want to make gnome shell my default window manager. I have it installed, and can get it to run from the terminal with gnome-shell --replace. the effects aren't permanent though. I tried setting gnome-shell to be a start up application but this hasn't worked. I dont want to remove compiz or metacity before knowing if I can get gnome-shell to run by default somehow.
So, how can I get gnome-shell to be my default windows manager?
Now I know that in order to change the colors in your terminal you have to play around with ~/.bashrc But the effects don't stay in place after a change-root is taken affect. It just reverts to black. Is there any way I can change that too in .bashrc?
The installation was fine, after all the updates were done, I've installed Mesa-dri-experimental and then Gnome-shell.After I activated Gnome-Shell windows have some weird aspect (see image below )I've a acer 8930g laptop with a geforce 9600m gt.Do you have any Idea of what's wrong?I've also noticed that this problem disappear as soon I apply a theme with non rounded windows ( like Crux )
After hours of online searching, I still haven't find a right answer to my question. How can I change the color of the popup menu, the color of the menus that appear when you click on the icons on the right side of the desktop and of the firefox menus.I have a custom theme.
today I upgraded via official testing repository Gnome to version 3.18. After this, icons on desktop and nautilus are bigger, than before. Next thing, gaps between icons are smaller than before. I tried change theme to default (Adwaita), then run gtk-update-icon-cache, but without result.
Normal view - icons are big for this view. URL....
Small view - icons are still big for this view. URL...
How can I change icons size and gaps size? Or is it bug for this version?
I am using Fedora 8, gnome, a tcsh login shell, and I would like to have my directories and files color coded when I use ls. I have been searching the internet far and wide today looking for ways to do this. I have tried all the ways I could find: edit .bsrc file, edit DIR_COLORS, edit DIR_COLORS.xterm, create .dircolors, edit etc/profile, edit .cshrc file, alias ls --colors, and all combinations of this. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong.I use su in my terminal I get the colors for ls. So there must be something up with my user profile? I have tried to edit my terminal profiles and my desktop themes neither worked. Please help! I know this is a trivial issue, but now I am on a mission to figure this out.
Is there any way I can switch my desktop shell from unity to, say, gnome-shell? I can switch using other console shell I like (bash, csh, fish, etc.). Assume that there is a stable alternative desktop shell, I should be able to choose, too.
(For console shell, we goes to /etc/passwd. But for desktop, I can't find the way to config.)
I recently installed Fedora 15 (64-bit), and after running yum update and updating the kernel, I installed the ATI graphics driver from the AMD website. I have an ATI Radeon 5000 series card. The driver itself seems to work ok, as my Gnome 3 still operates after reboot, but the top bar (where the activities button is) is covered in weird rainbow-like colors of green, pink, and gray. It's extremely ugly and I can't find a way to fix it. Upon reading posts by others with this problem, no solutions were brought forth. I have heard that many people with ATI cards don't have this problem, and the bar looks normal for them. I won't really be comfortable using Gnome 3 unless I can get rid of those colors.
I was getting low disk space notifications so I used LVM to increase Ubuntu's volume from 10GB to 50GB. LVM and Disk Utility show the correct new size, but System Monitor and the Properties of the File System (in Nautilus) show the old, smaller size. Do I need to update something to get them to see the new size?
How do I change the ugly default orange color for the loading bars and stuff? I know how to change things with the window manager, but that only changes the frames and "min, max, close" buttons. I like everything about the theme I have, and the way the window manager is set, except it uses that ugly orange color when things are loading or downloading. How do I change that part? Can I change only that part by itself?
