Ubuntu :: Get A White Screen - No Wallpaper - Colors - Themes ?

Mar 29, 2011

I installed the Cairo dock and wanted to get rid of the taskbar on the left side. Found out that getting rid of Mutter would do that. Not satisfied, so long story short, reinstalled Mutter. Now I only get a white screen. No wallpaper, colors, themes, nothing. As I shut Ubuntu off I will get a flash of my wallpaper and then it's gone. 2 questions really: How do I get things back the way they were? Can I keep the dock but lose the standard sidebar?

Debian :: Installing KDM Themes - Wallpaper ?

Mar 18, 2011

I am using Debian 6.0 Sid (aptosid) with KDE 4.5.x and would like to install the official Debian Squeeze KDM theme, wallpaper etc, into my system.

I think the theme is called Orbit Fun? I came to this forum instead of aptosid's forum to learn how to install KDM themes the Debian way using a terminal and not the KDE-Look download way. KDE-Look does not have the official Squeeze theme at this time, and I generally do not like the aptosid artwork, but I really like sid.

Ubuntu :: Shiki-colors In Xfce - Showing Up In GTK Themes List

May 5, 2010

I'm running PC/OS, which is based on Xubuntu. I've got all of the Shiki-Colors GTK themes, the GNOME-Colors icon themes, and the Arc-Colors themes installed. Everything's going great, but I've got one little annoyance going on. What's happening is the Arc-Colors (both the list and non-list version) showing up in my GTK themes list, and that's obviously not where they belong

these, of course, are supposed to be GDM themes. What's more, I see nothing in the /usr/share/themes directory to indicate that they're in there by mistake, and in fact, I distinctly remember putting them in /usr/share/gdm/themes, which is where they belong. I first tried this downloading and installing them from the repos, and when they acted up there, I tried the manual installs from GNOME-Look and got the same thing, too.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Wallpaper After Upgrade - Just White Background

Apr 29, 2011

I upgraded to 11.04 yesterday and now my dual monitor setup has no wallpaper! Just a solid white background (screenshot attached). When I log in and out, I see the wallpaper briefly, but I can't get it to display while I'm logged in.

I even tried creating a new user to see if I mucked up my environment somewhere. New user had the same problem.

Ubuntu :: Screen And Vim (256 Colors) Background Color Rendering?

Feb 18, 2010

I'm using xterm/screen/vim, and set them up to 256 color mode. Everything went well, except when background color for the theme I choose is not black.

Here's the theme I use in this example:[URL].. Here's the situation: as long as I only use vim, the background is well rendered, meaning everything is grey in vim background. But when I try this with screen, the background is back to black, and only the text get some kind of highlight with the background color.Here are the magical lines I added to screenrc:

term screen-256color
attrcolor b ".I"
# Tell screen how to set colors. AB = background, AF=foreground
termcapinfo xterm 'Co#256:AB=E[48;5;%dm:AF=E[38;5;%dm'
# Erase background with current bg color. Not needed if TERM=screen-256color
defbce "on"

Colors are well rendered in 256 color, I only have a problem with this background. Anyone knows how to 'fix' this?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Less Colors Visible On The Screen After Upgrading?

Nov 14, 2010

I've just upgraded to Kubuntu 10.10 recently, and everything's working well, except that the screen seems to display less colors than it used to. It's very noticeable when looking at smooth gradients, since there are no smooth gradients anymore.

I'm using a laptop with a Radeon HD 5650 video card. The drivers seem to be working well, since I can run a 3D game like Nexuiz without any problems. The lack of colors isn't even very noticeable when playing games, but I can see it clearly in KDE... for example, the window background gradient isn't really a gradient now, just a few different shades of gray next to each other.I've looked around in KDE display settings and ATI settings, but there's absolutely nothing about the number of displayed colors there.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Screen Crashing And Displaying Funky Colors?

Jan 1, 2011

For the past month or so I have been having some issues with screen crashing and displaying funky colors. Basically it happens at completely random times, doing completely random things. The screen goes to a pink color then freezes the the only way I can gain control again is if I restart the machine or restart gdm via ssh. This is really puzzling me. Perhaps there are some logs I can look at? A little bit about my system:

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Screen Fonts And Colors Also Look Terrible Compared To Windows / Ubuntu

Jul 14, 2010

I have used Ubuntu and Linux Mint for quite some time now until I got a new machine. Some friends told me to try OpenSUSE because it has really been polished over the last few years.Install went smoothly got everything working properly except for my video card. My video card is an ATI HD4890 with sound support over HDMI. I had the sound working in Ubuntu using the non-oss ATI drivers. I was wondering if someone could please teach me how to install them again here on OpenSUSE 11.3. My screen fonts and colors also look terrible compared to Windows or Ubuntu.

Is there a way I can make it look better? I remember CCC (Catalyst Control Center for ATI) had two color formats (RGB and YCbCr). I had to set it to YCbCr because my screen is an HDTV and it looked much cleaner than RGB. Is there a way I can acheive similar results with OpenSUSE?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Weirdest Sound - Static Buzz, But Only If Mainly Light Screen Colors?

Jan 28, 2011

There's this low monotone electronic buzz coming out of my speakers. But only if the greater part of my screen is using lighter colors! Meaning, if for instance I have the terminal (black) full-screen there is no buzz. If I have it sized over the half of my screen there's a medium buzz. And if I am on the Google Search home page with the browser full screen (most of the screen white) there's a loud buzz. :SAnd it's only if I run the sound through my amplifier. It's not audible if I just use the laptopspeakers. Really, I have no idea even in what direction to start looking.

Ubuntu :: White Screen After Login?

Jan 21, 2010

I'm suddenly experiencing a white screen on my laptop after logging in, possibly as a result of some routine updates last night although I can't find any posts here today recounting similar problems.It's possibly Compiz related as I can get to a visible desktop by blindly using Alt+F2 and entering "metacity --replace". Maybe even a problem with my video drivers?

Ubuntu :: Random White Screen

Oct 25, 2010

I'm new to ubuntu but I've installed ubuntu 10.10 on my desktop and it seems to work fine. But it keeps freezing up on me (sometimes a solid white screen, other times with vertical lines on a white background) and then becomes non-responsive. Sometimes there is a small (about 1in) square where the mouse was when it froze.I have a fairly old computer (emachines T6522). Is there something I can do to keep it from crashing?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Bypass This White Screen

Mar 18, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 off a desktop. I was using it for quite a while up until last night when out of nowhere while surfin', and browsing, the screen just turned white, I've tried restarting by powering off manually, as I couldn't get it to any other way. After the computer restarts, it might flash black for a sec a couple of times, then back to being white again, the BIOS screen doesn't even show up. It sounds like in the background the computer might still be loading up. My monitor is a 21"LCD, if that means anything?

Ubuntu :: White Screen In Corner After Boot / What To Do?

Jan 26, 2010

I have been using Netbook Remix 9.10 and it's been great until this morning.

Today when I turned it on, after Grub and the loading screen, the system brought up a smaller white screen in the corner with my username@machinename"~$ as the first line.

This looks like a terminal window. I can see my folders and use the system but I get no GUI anymore. Not sure why this is happening.

Tried booting into Recovery and updating the system, but to no avail. I've also searched the forums for the last few hours but have not found anything similar.

Anyone have any idea what to do? code...

Not sure if this is relevant to my problem or not. However, I do remember this happening on my desktop version of 9.10... that was solved by installing 9.04.
