Ubuntu :: File Manager Keeps On Opening In Task Bar And No Icons Show Up

Nov 16, 2010

My file manager keeps on opening in the taskbar and it will not stop, but no application comes up, only in the taskbar. No icons will show up on my desktop either. When I go to open up the file manager, nothing comes up. Even when I try nautilus or sudo nautilus nothing happens. I read on another forum to use gconf-editor and nothing fixed it. What do I do? I need to have my computer fixed for school. I am running Ubuntu x86 64-bit on a HP Pavilion tx2500z laptop.

Ubuntu Installation :: Task Manager Or Task Bar, Keeps Changing Length?

May 29, 2011

After upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04 all of a sudden, the task manager or task bar, keeps changing length. The individual window "buttons" themselves keep changing size - flashing even, and the space between them also changes. It is driving me nuts! The little system tray(?) icons no longer appear in the system tray, but all stacked on top of each other in the top left corner.

Ubuntu :: Opening File Manager Endlessly Creating In Programs Bar. Can't Stop It?

Mar 8, 2010

When I turn on my computer I am greeted by an unending stream of "Starting File Managers" appearing in the programs list. This cannot be stopped, though none of the file managers actually open. They just sit there filling up my programs bar and wasting my cpu slowing down computer. It also means I cant upon my own folders, or see what programs I have open.If I run terminal, type xkill and click on one of the buttons in the programs list, that kills them all, and I can see my programs again for a bit, until it fills up again. The panel disappears and appears again, with all the spawning messages gone and any other programs I have open remain there. Its just the randomly spawned "Starting File Managers" that don't come back.

My CPU fluctuates. Its around 60% to 90% load, when it should be idle, but is instead opening all these windows.When I view the processes the most CPU intensive (when I sort) is Gnome System Monitor at 6% and then Gnome panel at 5%,gconfd-2 is as around 2%, compiz.real, dbus-deamon hover around 1%. And everything else is generally at 0%.So somewhere, a hidden process is using about 70% of my CPU load. Which isn't shown in system-monitor. Maybe because its an admin process and I can only see simple user processes. I dunno.There is something else though. I have a process with no name appearing, its blank. And it keeps disappearing and re-appearing. So you can hardly select it hard enough to kill it. I managed to kill it once and it said error, process (large number, 10,000 or 100,000) does not exist. So can't be killed.When I do an xkill the console writes:

anthony@Anthony-Acer:~$ xkill
Select the window whose client you wish to kill with button 1....

Ubuntu :: Startup Application Opening Behind Task Bars?

May 11, 2011

im building a small wallboard machine, using ubuntu 10.10 as 11.4 refuses to load correctly on any of my spare machines.but, anyway, thats not the issue, ive installed chromium-browser, and added it to the startup applications with


chromium-browser -kiosk http://wallboard
where http://wallboard is the wallboard info thats being displayed.

that works, BUT the browser is opening BEHIND the top 'menu' bar, and the bottom 'task' bar, which obviously, is not what i want. how do i set it to either hide these 'bars' or open the browser in front of them like it does if i manually run the command from a terminal?

Ubuntu :: DVD Drive Is Not Recognised - Doesn't Show Up In The File Manager

Feb 21, 2011

A little while ago I installed lubuntu 10.04 on a partition on my (somewhat) old sony vaio desktop. It's great, I do love it - only problem is that the DVD drive is not recognised - at least it doesn't show up in the file manager, and isn't listed when I do "ls -l /media".

Debian Multimedia :: Jessie KDE Does Not Show File Manager With Dvd-rom

May 7, 2015

When I insert a dvd-rom I dont get the option for the file manager. I do get k3b, vlc,dragon and two other options. Im guessing this is a bug since this didnt happen with Wheezy. When I insert a dvd data disc I do get the file manager option. Strange this is, after inserting the data disc, removing it and then reinserting the dvd-rom I see the option for file manager. How can I get the file manager option to show everytime I insert a dvd-rom? I tried to,create a new option in system setting but man is that stuff confusing.

i,want to be able to browse a dvd-rom movie/video using dolphin when i insert one. I want open with file manager to be one of the choices. I think file manager is the choice.

Debian Multimedia :: Faulty Icons In LXDE Task Bar Since 8.0

May 2, 2015

I saw that on every computer in which I installed LXDE on Debian 8 (the problem was not existing on Debian 7.8.0)

So I decided to use mate-desktop-environment but a brand new problem (always ) made his apparition when I try to use tightvncserver on a Mate desktop (no task bar, and memory growing GB after GB up to the memory explosion after 1 or 2 minutes with 16GB RAM -I will post another subject for that once I will know more things about it - since it is, after all, an huge problem causing the computer to crash if "reboot" our "vncserver -kill :1" is not quickly done)

But here talking about LXDE taskbar: others LXDE users, do you have this problem with the icons ?

Ubuntu :: Task Bar Preview - Show All Songs With Word Black In Title

Jan 23, 2011

I have a customer that was raving how he likes windows 7. I asked him what he saw improved over xp, and he could only list the mouse hover preview of tasks in taskbar and media player could show all songs with word black in title. I am training my 3 and 5 year old on Ubuntu, and they (& wife) cannot grasp the difference between bottom taskbar and top applications menu. Even on my xp machine they freak out (including 10 year old with computer classes) when I minimize their applications to work on my own when they get up from the dining room machine.

And, so I though I would download "Visual tray tip" which mimics the taskbar preview on mouse hover. But on my 6 gig hard drive, p3 650 mhz 1 gig ram living room notebook (mainly flash educational gaming for kids) I really would like such a task bar preview. But upgrading Ubuntu is out of the question, since it is a functioning machine with 211 megs free on drive, and I have no stomach, time, or wish to kill it by an upgrade. So, am wishing for a sudo apt-get install solution.

Ubuntu :: Disable "opening Application X" Notification In Gnome Task Panel?

Oct 15, 2010

How can I disable that, please?
Everytime I start an app, the task panel will for a while show a new "dummy" entry "Opening Application X", which is extremely annoying and makes no sense, since I know I'm opening it, because I just clicked on it myself.

General :: Accessing Windows Partition And Task Manager

Sep 21, 2010

1.) I have several versions of ubuntu installed on my computer. Technically, all but one are incomplete installs which I would like to delete if possible?

2.) I would like to access my files from the Windows partition, but it doesn't show up under "system." Is it for some reason impossible to access Windows files?

3.) My computer's performance has dipped substantially in the last two days. I am trying to figure out why this is, if there is a task manager or the like or a performance diagnosis tool. Also, my computer does not have an anti-virus program, that might also be the cause of the poor system performance.
