Alas as soon as I check them - the tick dissapears again - and there is no way for me to edit the menu. Its my system I have full access.

Jul 8, 2010

I'm looking for a way to hide the icons in the Gnome menu bar.

The only thing i've found is the gconf-editor and unchecking /desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons, but that only affects the System menu and not Applications and Places...


Must be like:

Ubuntu :: Making Shortcuts For 2 Games Menu

Jan 15, 2009

I have some problem making shortcuts for 2 games to my Application/games menu. The menu you can edit by writing "alacarte" in the terminal. So this is how I do, I have 1 game, its a Linux client of the game Tibia, ive unpacked it and its in a folder inside my home folder. If I double click on either Tibia or StartTibia.sh the game starts without any trouble, but if I open alacarte and browse to that location and choose either Tibia or StartTibia.sh and then click on the new item in the Game menu nothing opens. Here is the location I browse to:

The next problem is with a windows game installed with wine, if I drag the existing shortcut file to the panelbar I get the icon there and can just click it and start it without any trouble, but I want it to be inside the applications/games menu. So I go to the alacarte editor and browse to the main directory of the file inside /home/som99/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/gamename/game.exe and press ok but when I try to start it it asks for its main files located at Z:homesom99 the funny thing is that it starts if I move all files inside the games main folder to home without putting them in any folder :/

So I tried to write the following as is written in the working shortcut in wine:
wine "C:Program FilesTibiagame.exe" and I get the same error as it somehow think that the locations is homesom99 :S
Also adding in properties of the new shortcut item the following:
"/home/som99/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/game" wine game.exe
I get this error while trying to start it:
Failed to execute child process "/home/som99/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/game" (Permission denied)
I have put permission on the folders but same result.

As I am going to make alot of shortcuts to many programs both trough wine and games I've unpacked I would like to know how to do this.
I might add that if I open the terminal and write:
cd /home/som99/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/game
to get to the folder then writes:
wine game.exe
Then the game starts without any trouble.

General :: Hide The KDE 4.3.5 Menu Until Its Needed?

Mar 10, 2010

I installed the new Frugalware 1.2 via USB and that went well. I wanted an LXDE menu, as I don't like the "style" of the KDE menus, and the KDE menus seem slow, too.

The problem is that after installing LXDE, I have the LXDE menu from what I'd call the start button, which I like, but the KDE menu is now covering the entire screen on all desktops, and there seems no way to minimize it. I doubt I'll have to use it often, but don't want to lose all access to the programs on it. I haven't checked to see if all the programs are on the LXDE menu, but I noticed that Gfpm (the package manager) is now missing from the menu. Not sure if anything else has disappeared.

n Is there a way to minimize or hide the KDE menu?

Ubuntu :: 90% Of The Applications Install - Last Release - Do Not Show Up Later On In Applications Menu

Jul 24, 2010

I feel shy asking this question but, 90% of the applications I install in Ubuntu (last release), do not show up later on in the applications menu, so I cant run them. I know it seems silly, but I can't find the way to handle this inconvenience. Is there a place (like Start> All programs in Windows), were I could find and run all the programs I install?

I think I have uncovered a BUG in the APPLICATIONS -> GAMES Menu system. I have UN-Checked all Games except for:Sudoku, DosBox, Chess, and AisleRiot Solitaire.

The games still do not show only the ones selected.See attached Games1.pngI have tried to submit a BUG Report but obviously I don't understand how that system works, as it just closes the window.

Fedora :: How To Hide The Program Launcher In Menu Bar

Nov 21, 2009

1st, I got the OS install. I just want to hide some program launcher from menu bar. In the old Gnome, it work this way, I put the mouse on the menu bar, and then right click, choose preference then I can hide everything I wanna hide. But I can not do that on F12 any more, I tired to refer to Gnome instruction manual on Gnome web site. It seems like they did not change anything on Gnome 2.28. Since the instruction remain the same.

2nd I also want to ask, how do I change the default interface language setting in F12? In previous version I just need to do that in SYSTEM-->Preference. But I can not see the option any more either.

3rd I can not install the NVIDIA proprietary driver even though I got GCC and kernel development header in place. The install log said:" The binary file is not for the kernel" Well, I just use the regular i686 kerenl as usual. It does not make sense it will not work.

I got the driver running by using the rpmfusion driver, not the one from Nvida

By the way, The nouveau driver in F12 works far from OK on my GO 7300. It just like a slave driver that whip the GPU at full out all the time, let alone it does not have 3D capability.

The live cd does not include GCC and kernel development header. That made me feel like walking on the moon but forgot to put the gravity suite on.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Hide Grub2 Menu At Startup?

Apr 8, 2011

I have serious problems hiding the Grub menu at startup.

What I want to do is simple boot into the first (and only) item without showing the menu to the user.

I have removed everything on the system so the only option is "GNU/Linux, with Linux 2.6.32-30-generic" in the menu.

My /etc/default/grub is like this:



No matter what I do I always get the same result:

The menu is shown and no countdown!

It's like grub isn't reading the changes of /etc/default/grub

why I'm unable to hide the menu?

Ubuntu :: Hide Factory Reset Rescue Partition From GRUB2 Menu

Jan 19, 2010

I have installed UNR 9.10 Karmic on new Asus EEE pc 1008HA to dual boot with XP. Like many new pc's it has a hidden partition to recover the factory hard disk settings and Microsoft Windows XP. Unfortunately, GRUB2 has picked this up and is showing the recovery system in the boot menu. Clearly this is dangerous because the user could reset the pc. How do I remove or hide this boot start up option? Other thoughts: I do not believe Easybcd works with xp/linux. is there another easy bootloader?

Ubuntu :: Edit The Menu Bar Items?

Aug 13, 2010

I installed a dual boot Windows 7 / Ubuntu netbook remix 10.04 yesterday.So far so good, everything works fine.

However, i would like to get rid of the little enveloppe in the menu bar, more precisely in what i think is called the notification area. i have found some stuff online about how I'm supposed to delete a package and restart, quite unsuccessful method really, since the envelope is still there.

Plus whenI right click on the menu bar to pin / unpin items, it doesnt work, all the submenus are greyed out.
