Ubuntu :: Desktop Cube In Gnome Classic Terribly Slow
May 30, 2011
today i decided i wanted to use the desktop cube again, so i went through all the compiz settings and got it working in gnome classic. however, when i initiate ratation with the mouse (ctrl>alt>button 1) it is sloooow whenever there is a window open (even just one). rotating away from the workspace with a window does seem to speed up the framerate. when i had maverick 10.10 it was never this slow.
Finally I updated my fedora 12 to 13 yesterday.I'm very pleased with some changes,even though it is not so obvious.However,I found that update my system through yum is such a hard work that I had to wait a long time because I got a terribly slow download speed.After some check,I found that I can't get access to ubuntu99.cn99.com and so on.Does anyone have suggestions what can I do now?
Just installed slackware-13, and sorting issues. I actually have googleearth running - just.It's telling me it's using opengl, but opengl is absolutely cat on this box I have ATI RS690M with the radeonhd driver on my laptop. Opengl is terribly slow. Videos stall, but I move them withmplayer -vo sdl <my_video>/end backgroundAnything I can do with Google earth?o option to swap. fglrx is crap on opengl.
I upgraded a machine with only default OEM user from 10.10 to 11.04 and my extremely useful gnome desktop was trashed by the upgrade. If I logout, the login screen does not give me a choice of login shells. What options do I have to ressurect a more useful shell than the default toy for untrained office staff and game players
I installed a fresh live CD version of Fedora 15 which has that new Unity desktop, but I also want the option of booting to the old gnome classic desktop session. So can I add that with the package manager, or just use terminal with yum install ?
I used command as followings. nothing special. mount -t cifs //192.168.55.53/windows$/Home /mnt/ -o user=username%password It works well after mounted. But mounting itself takes 1-2 minutes terribly. After mounted successfully, file transfer speed looks to be normal.
i just installed ubuntu 11.04 (not beta) and switched to classic mode since it is really slow for some reason.i tried to go in update manager to see if it might fix it,but there arent any new updates.i also checked additional drivers which showed up nothing.when i had 10.10 it was quick and responsive,but 11.04 just makes me want to go back to the old version.can this be a video driver problem that its going slow?
I have recently done a clean install of Lucid Lynx and set everything up the way I had it in Jaunty (skipped Karmic). However, I am now having problems with the Compiz Cube and Firefox 3.6.
Whenever I rotate my workspace that contains a Firefox window that is active, the animation is very jerky and slow. It is fine if Firefox is a background window. This was never a problem in Jaunty with Firefox 3.0.
Is anyone else having this problem? Does anyone know how I might be able to fix it? I have tried disabling all addons in Firefox.
My PC: Core 2 Duo E7400, Geforce 7010 (onboard), 2GB RAM
UPDATE: starting Firefox in Safe Mode seems to help a little. Not sure why though...
I started up my computer, the seccond time since i had installed ubuntu 11.04. My unity desktop was gone, and it was now the old desktop(classic). I tried to change it but it didn't work. Then i as i only saw one option i reinstalled ubuntu then it worked again and have since.
I have Ubuntu 11.04 and I am running it on Ubuntu classic due to not caring for Unity very much. I have an Acer Aspire 5739 and a Nvidia GEForce GT 130M graphics card. Is there any way to have a 3D desktop cube again?
I have read many posts on here and else where and still have not managed to get it working. (I am fairly new to Linux btw so just try to keep that in mind when replying)
I've installed this new Ubuntu 11.04 and I must say its horrible. Not because of the "Unity", but lack of support for multiple monitors. They work in "Gnome Classic", but the problem is there is many bugs. First bug is that any windows I open do not have borders or title bars, and only open in top left corner of the screen. On top of that, I can't type anything in those opened screens like when I open terminal for example. Second bug is that I can't add any new items to panels on other separate screens. As soon as I try to add anything, I get the following errors. "Indicator Applet Complete" has quit unexpectedly. So 11.04 failed for me I'm afraid. At this point I can't use it. This is very said because I was looking forward in running new version of Ubuntu. Its very strange that Ubuntu programmers don't have multiple screens by now to test ubuntu properly. As for Unity, nothing to talk about there. Its pure "Vista" style like screw up. It only works well on laptop or single monitor. I guess all I can do now, is wait again for 11.10 and hope all bugs will be fixed by then to support multiple monitors like 10.10 does now. Also, this will teach me installing new ubuntu version every six months LOL With all the bugs new ubuntu version comes out .04 releases is not worth it. Better wait at least in till .04.1 comes or even .10 versions. fix "Gnome Classic" so it will support multiple screens again. I think its something to do with Compiz, because windows decorations is not working on separate screens.
I am wondering if my 10.10 Gnome settings, preferences, color schemes, themes and so on will remain after installing 11.04 and selecting Classic as the default? These live in a separate /home partition, which I obviously will not be formatting.
In previous releases of Ubuntu it was possible to replace the gnome panel (with AWN for example) by going into gconf-editor and replacing gnome-panel with the panel of my choice (see screen)Unfortunately this doesn't seem to have an affect on Ubuntu Classic desktop.how to do it with Natty (replace gnome-panel with AWN)?
I have recently upgraded to 11.04 and am running the Classic interface as I don't like Unity.However, I have noticed so far two areas where this Classic version has gone backwards from the default Gnome in 10.10 and earlier.I can't rearrange window buttons on the Window list, nor can I drag-and-drop say FLAC files onto the button for "Movie Player" any more -they end up pinned on the panel!How can I get back the ability to drag window buttons around and and turn off the annoying pinning feature and get drag-and-drop back?
I am using 11.04. The Unity and Ubuntu Classic (no effects) are working as designed. The Ubuntu Classic DE has no window borders. I have searched and tried several solutions for similar issues but those have not worked. More info can be provided as requested.This problem began after installing Lubuntu as an alternative DE and I have since removed it but the problem remains. I could have, in the time that I have been searching, re-installed Ubuntu but wanted to resolve this problem. The OS is on my laptop and I do not have any data that would be lost. The system has been setup with a separate /home partition so necessary/needed data will not be lost.
I'm trying to get desktop cube in compiz to work. I can select it and create a key combination for it, but I can't get it to work. I tried creating new workspaces and making less but the cube never shows up.
Running Ubuntu Netbook remix on a Toshiba NB500-upgraded to 2 Gigabytes RAM. Very slow opening applications via the side icons. 8-12 seconds. Is that normal for this distro? - No 3D cube. Installed related compiz software, adjusted settings, ticked cubes etc. Not a peep. - No direct desktop access. Only via side icons. Just find it fiddly re: using desktop and changing background via side icons. Couple other items (MBB for one) but for another category.
I was just experimenting with compiz effects on Natty 11.04, and when I clicked desktop cube (which I'm assuming you're not supposed to do, haha), my compiz broke. The pop up windows are way at the top of the screen, almost out of view, and the windows lack the close, minimize, and maximize buttons. I tried reinstalling all the compiz plugins, and when I rebooted I had the same problem! I am using metacity right now, but I would be very sad if i was stuck with it.
I've just installed 11.04 and I have switched to the classic gnome. When I enable my second monitor the gnome panel moves to the 2nd monitor, though I would like to have it on my primary. It used to be that I could hold alt and move the panel to any edge of any screen. This doesn't work anymore. How to move the classic gnome panels?
Ever since I upgraded to Natty / 11.04, the quality of my desktop experience has dropped sharply.
One thing that effect me greatly is that I can no longer conveniently switch my network proxy on or off system-wide with single click.
Back in Maverick / 10.10, I could launch gnome-network-properties and switch it back and forth depends rather I am at work or at home.
I have found a similar application, "gnome-control-center network," on the surface of it, it seems to replace "gnome-network-properties" in Maverick. Except that this application doesn't seems do ANYTHING.
As result, I am having the hardest time switching my proxy settings, as I have to do so per application basis (gpodder, pidgin, aptitude, thunderbird / firefox, etc).
ps. I am using Gnome "classic" but Gnome 3 suffers the same issue
I'm running 11.04 with Unity and enabled Desktop Cube in Compiz Settings Manager. I ended up disabling services, i think "largedesktop" and enabling others like OpenGL and composite. Anyway, unity no longer works including the bar above and the icons to the left. Any idea how I can fix this?
