I'm running Lucid Lynx 10.04 x64 here and the following issues:
1. How do I change the icon text for applications?
2. I can't seem to burn DVDs successfully (CDs burn ok though). I've tried burning with K3b, Nero and Brasero - all fail to produce a readable DVD. My burner seems to produce readable DVDs when running WinXP with Nero though.
I have installed KDE 4.6.1, on distribution Ubuntu 10.10 . But i have problem with trash icon. Even when i delete a simple text file, trash icon not change, shows empty icon. When I open trash directory location from dolphin, left side shortcuts, it shows empty directory.Is it a bug? Where is my deleted file gone?
Kwallet is off. Then I install a wireless device under WPA. Wired icon starts to change to wireless icon, but does not and goes back to wired icon. Hovering pointer over wired icon shows wired device installed as well as wireless device. How do I keep the wireless icon in place after installing WPA to wireless device?
I have d/l and am using an icon theme I got from gnome-look. I like all the icons except for a few, specifically the trash, and would like to change them but I can't figure out how. I d/l an empty and full trash icon. I looked in the /home/username/.icons/themename folder and found the two trash icons that came with the theme (they were in ~/.icons/themename/scalable/places). Changed the names of the ones I d/l and replaced those current ones with them.how to do this? I would also like to change the Menu Bar icon back to the gnome foot.
I'm having an issue with my AWN dock where I have enabled it to'group similarapplications', i.e multiple windows of the the same applicationIn 9.10, AWN distinguished between different WINE applications and used their native icons.In 10.04 AWN doesn't distinguish, see the pic belowScreenshot-2.jpgs you can see AWN groups my WINE applications under one icon, the spotify icon and you can see the MS Word logo to the right. This is very irritating since I would like to have separate WINE shortcuts on my taskbar! I'm sure this will affect some other users too.Anyone know how to sort this out?N.B I can't use cairodock as I have issues with freezing and icons not appearing, and i feel docky isn't up to speed with the same functionality as the others for the time being.
Ubuntu 11.04. I would like to move the Applications Icon, the one that launches a window where I can view and launch all my applications. I want to move it up near the top of the Launcher Bar, where it would be more readily accessed. I've tried "clicking and dragging but the only thing I can do is switch places with the "Files & Folders" Icon.
I'd imagine I sound like a complete clown but I am completely new to ubunto and linux in general. Having "fiddled around with it" for a matter of weeks I am finding generally I am quite pleased and am taking my time sorting through the chaff. Talking of chaff I have a problem from downloading a program previously which turned out to be unnecessary. Avast, I have removed the program and associated files but for some reason an Icon remains in the applications box at the bottom, not in a grouped file. I have tried various terminal commands taken from forums etc but none of these appear to have done the trick. A simple right click doesnt give me a remove to waste basket option and the drag and drop to waste basket doesn't work either. Amongst terminal efforts force remove etc etc., don't have any affect and the lines about the avast file does not exist.
Ubuntu 11.04.Dragging the Text Editor launcher into the Unity dock will create a blank space with a blank label which launches Text Editor. How can I choose an icon for it?Also, how can I make it so middle clicking on the icon (or other ways of opening multiple instances) will open more instances of Text Editor instead of doing exactly nothing (does nothing if Text Editor is already open, otherwise it opens "Untitled Document 1")?it doesn't "launch text editor" per se. instead it opens "Untitled Document 1". maybe this is why you can't middle click it to open multiple instances?
I just bought a new laptop with 1920x1080 resolution. I installed Ubuntu 11.04 via "wubi" just now, however everything in ubuntu is too small to keep my eye comfortable. I searched the web and forum and tried to enlarge those, but the solution was about Ubuntu front and folder icon only (change in "appreance", and "edit->preference"). The front and icon are still small in other applications, such as Google chrome, firefox. Note: the change of front size in chrome and firefox only changes those on the page, but not page background, not the size in tab and anything else.
I am using Fedora 15 Live CD and after I did Yum update there are 2 icons of google chrome showing in the applications menu and also there are few other icons I want to remove, is there a way to do that, I searched in system settings but there was nothing there?
I run a OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with Gnome & KDE desktop. When I run my Gnome desktop all my KDE applications are missing their usr/share/icons/hicolor/48*48/apps/nameofapplication.png picture. The KDE applications work, and when I go to that destination file the png. picture is present. When I run a KDE environment, my KDE applications (that are missing in Gnome) have their icon 48*48 picture. Any idea why when running the Gnome environment, there is a missing path to the png. file for only the KDE applications?
I am using Faenza Icons, which is reflected in the icons on the throughout the system except in the windows list applet for certain applications like Firefox and Chrome in the gnome panel. The indicator applet and the menu do show Faenza icons for all the items (including firefox and chrome). I am yet to check for other applications which do not follow the icon theme. I want the windows list to be consistent with the menu and it feels strange that certain applications follow their own icons disregarding the theme I have selected.
I'm finding that some applications (2 thus far) are not properly displaying text. I first noticed it in Firefox, where it appears that NO text is being rendered because the search and "feeling lucky" buttons are both about 1.5 characters wide and blank inside. I'll include screen-caps below to exemplify what I mean. In addition to Firefox, I just tonight noticed that my PDF reader is apparently rendering all text in white (even though the same PDF opens up fine with black text on my Windows desktop computer). For the PDF's, I can see that there is text there because I can do a Ctrl+A and copy, and then when I paste it into gedit I can see all the text.
Some background: I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit w/gnome. The first thing I did after installing Ubuntu was to install the BlackBuntu theme by copying appropriate files from /usr/share/ from the BlackBuntu live USB.
What I've tried: I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox a couple of times, but ultimately I just installed Chromium which is working fine and is not experiencing the same issue that Firefox is. I've tried changing my theme back to default, changing all the fonts (under Appearance Preferences), and nothing is fixing this. I'm about to just do a full reinstall of the OS, paying careful attention to at exactly what point in my process everything gets screwed up, but I'm hoping that someone has an idea that I can try before I have to reinstall the system.
I have been using Ubuntu 10.10 for a few months now. I enjoy working with it, but there is one strange problem with Open Office (and Inkscape as well). When I attempt to work with either the word processor or spread sheet (this probably applies to other Open Office applications as well) under the default theme in Ubuntu, inevitably I get text and other elements blotted out with line smudges.
I have included a couple of screen shots, but I am wondering if this is a recurring problem with theme support (Open Office doesn't really use GTK/Gnome, does it?) or if it is some strange affect with the nvidia driver that I installed (version 260-19-06, my card is a GeForce Go 7150M). I have also noticed a slightly different problem, with Inkscape, where the ruler marks that track. The cursor movement don't delete themselves when the cursor moves, so the little triangles build up.
I am using a 17" VGA monitor with 1024x768 resolution. With some tweaking, I'm pretty satisfied with GNOME Shell and its look. The only exception is the font of the text below the icons in Activities. On my monitor with this resolution, the text is just too small. As far as I know, it's the smallest text anywhere in the GUI. This is kind of an accessibility issue for me, since I do have a sight problem
how to wrap the text in the overview for the icons I tell you I love opensource. Straight from some of the guys who wrote gnome shell, and yes the reason it was left out by default is because it has some quirks. Yes it wraps text - however if you have long words - like this_file_has_no_spaces then it will overflow into the icon on either side of it. But most application names have spaces. The obvious place you will see this happening is in recent items where that displays system files etc. The other issue is that when you hover/highlight an icon it will only highlight the first line of text. That's pretty much it and with a few lines of code then you can increase the font size of applications and don't have to worry about names getting cut off
I am running Debian Jessie with Gnome 3.14.2 on a Macbook Pro 15" with retina display. My resolution is currently set to 2880:1800 and any time I try to lower it, the whole screen goes to black (even if I change it to something in the 16:10 ratio) and I just have to keep force restarting when doing that. I want to lower it because a lot of stuff is really small. Certain aspects of windows in programs are so small, and in order to properly view stuff on my web browser I have to increase the magnification to around 250% for it to be reasonable.
Some things seem normally sized in the windows, and thus make things awkward on the screen, especially in chrome. Is there a way to fix this without having to change my resolution and/or font sizes? Making font sizes bigger on the gnome tweak tool makes things look a bit more awkward because it squeezes the text into small spaces. I would rather keep a higher resolution for a better picture, and changing it seems to mess things up. Here is what my browser looks like (without magnifying). Notice how the font size in the bookmark bar is disproportionately large compared to the buttons in the top right to close/max/min the window.
And this problem isn't just in the browser, but for example, in matlab everything is extremely tiny. I want to make everything larger, not just the text...

I have just discovered that I can't print text from libreoffice writer/calc if the layout is set to landscape. The letters seems to have been stretched and printed over each other. If I print the same document in kword/kspread everything is printed as it should be. I have generated a pdf of the document and printed from okular/acroread, even then it's not printed correctly. Although it looks ok in okular/acroread. What else that can be seen is that when it's wrongly printed the printout is printed in the opposite direction compared to when it's printed correctly. I.e. the tail comes first on the paper so to say. Where should I begin to search for faults?
I'm trying to fill in an application form that I downloaded. It has some shaded areas where I can answer questions, but there are a couple places where the shaded areas are missing.Have you previously applied with the C.B.E? "Readonly content cannot be changed No modifications will be accepted." Can I add a shaded area in so I can fill this in, or can I disable the read only part?
I have a Slackware install with an NVidia graphics card.It was working ok, but now the graphics screen is unreadable and the keyboard stops working (capslock and numlock lights don't operate) when the graphics display is started.Deleting /etc/X11/xorg.conf allows me to run "startx" and see the icons, but keyboard input is still lost.
I was Upgrading my Karmic to Lucid, in Karmic i met the same Problem, Icon Pack wont change [for Folder Icon]? Where's the problem? i was download from gnome-look.org but all themes wont change the Folder Icon.. my Ubuntu 10.04 Me install the themes was "Drag & Drop" the .tar.gz file to Themes.
When connected successfully to an access point the wireless icon in the system tray goes back to the one with the red x after if does its little connecting animation. Its more of an annoyance than anything because the connection works just fine, browsing the internet, downloading from repos, etc. I can't seem to figure out how to fix it and its driving me batty.
I use the Elementary GTK theme, and I'd like to replace the "E" at the upper-left hand with my custom Ubuntu logo. However, when I extract the icon to the proper directory, and replace all files, nothing happens. I delete the cache, kill and restore the panel via Terminal, and rebuild the cache, to no avail.
