Ubuntu :: Titlebar Disappears And Buttons Are Missing From All The Various Display Windows?

Jun 9, 2011

I have been experiencing a random issue on Ubuntu 10.04 for awhile now.The issue is that some times when I start my PC into Ubuntu the bar (Title bar) with the 'Min, Max,Close' buttons are missing from all the various display windows, e.g Nautilius, including Firefox. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, how did you resolve it? Do I need to log an issue for this. If so what info about my system do i need to supply?

Ubuntu :: Missing Titlebar On U10.04 LTS / Get That Back?

May 8, 2010

I'm new to Ubuntu and recently just upgraded from Karmic to Lucid (10.04). However after upgrade, Gnome seems misbehave every time I boot-up my machine.

On every boot, the following problem occur:-

1- Missing Title bar on all window.
2- Mouse pointer display as 'X'.

My current workaround was to set [Appearance Preference] > [Visual Effect] to 'EXTRA' on each boot.

I tried to set Visual Effect to 'NONE' before reboot but no luck. Reseting Gnome to default
rm -rf .gnome .gnome2 .gconf .gconfd .metacity
also not helpful.

Is there a way to fix it, say: reinstalling Compiz, Flushing FastBoot or the like.

Ubuntu :: Missing Titlebar/window Border?

Apr 28, 2011

I just installed 11.04 and was installing everything I wanted fine till I got to installing compiz. It installed fine and ran for a few minutes before my window borders disappeared entirely (see the attached screenshot). I've since tried running metacity --replace, but this makes unity disappear, so I'm left with my open windows only.

PS; I heard that there can be issues with ATI/AMD. Alas, that is my exact setup. I am urged to install proprietary drivers, but they fail to download.

Slackware :: KDE 4.3.1 Window Titlebar Repainting?

Jan 22, 2010

I've been using the vbatts KDE 4.3.1 packages with my Slackware64 13.0 installation. In general I like it, but there is a major problem with the window titlebars repainting. In Firefox it will usually show the previous page I visited instead of the current one. The text can also get mangled if I use one of the drop-down menus, particularly the bookmarks. It isn't just a Firefox thing; it happens with every app I use. It's just that many apps don't change the titlebar that much. Is this a KDE, X, or NVIDIA driver problem? A Google search seemed to indicate that it was an issue with X itself, but the info I found wasn't very clear.

Ubuntu :: Disable Window Maximize When Titlebar Dragged To Top Of Screen?

Apr 29, 2011

I just updated to 11.04. I tried to keep an open mind while using Unity, but I just couldn't deal with the totally unorganized application menu, so I switched back to the regular Gnome desktop. There's something that bugs me, though: when I drag the titlebar of a window up to the top of the screen, it maximizes the window, or more accurately, it "grows" the window depending on how far up I drag it, up to the maximum size of the screen. I don't have any desire to use this method to make my windows larger, and it also prevents me from dragging windows to the virtual desktop above the current one (I have edge-flipping turned on). How to disable this? I installed the compiz config manager installed but can't seem to find the right option.

Ubuntu :: Move The Window Control Buttons When The Window Is In Full Screen Mode?

May 3, 2011

How do I move the Window control buttons when the window is in full screen mode? I.e.: I know how to go into gconf-editor:

gconf-editor --> apps --> metacity --> general --> button layout = ":minimize,maximize,close"
(I've intentionally disabled the menu...)

What I want is my window controls to be on the right side of the window when the window is in full screen mode.

Also I've had an issue with the Unity dockbar glitching out. I can still click on the buttons (i.e. the logout button) but it displays like a nintendo game inserted crooked. Is there a way to 'restart' unity without log out/ log in?

Any one else experienced any glitches with unity auto hiding/showing?

Ubuntu :: Moving Buttons Back To The Left?

Jun 3, 2010

Bottom line up front: I'd like to move my window controls from the right corner to the left corner in 10.04.

All of my window controls (minimize, close, etc) are back on the right hand corner of the window, and after my upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04 they were on the left. I briefly tried E16 with gnome, didn't like it, and removed all. This caused metacity to become unconfigured, and now all of the themes have window controls on the right.

Where can I fix it so the window controls are back where the 10.04 ubuntu wanted them?

Apr 18, 2011

I have noticed that,in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat,the windows have their 3 buttons[maximize(a square),close(x) and minimize(-)] at the left(like in MacOS),while in earlier Ubuntu versions(for example,8.04 Hardy Heron),these buttons are at the right(like in the Windows operating system).Why did the developers of Ubuntu do this change?

Ubuntu :: Get Nautilus To Respond To The Back/Fwd Buttons Of Mouse?

Sep 13, 2010

Nautilus goes back and forward with alt-left and alt-right.

Just like firefox only firefox responds to my corresponding mouse buttons.

How can I get Nautilus to do that?

If I can't get Nautilus itself to do that, I thought I could bind the buttons to alt-left and alt-right in CCSM. But I don't know how to enter keystrokes as a command.

close buttons on the left with xfce4? I do not want to use the system boarders, I want to use the compact mode, that is the point of using chrome. I know it can be done, that is how it is in gnome with the Ambiance theme and such. I have already gotten all the other buttons on the left, but the chromium ones wont budge.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade 9.10 To 10.04 - No Window Borders - No Buttons

May 3, 2010

I upgraded to 10.04 but problems started very quickly: I can see my desktop but when I start an application, there are no window borders or buttons to close/minimize that application! They just vanished. Also, opened windows don't appear on the taskbar, so I can't switch between windows, not even with ALT + TAB. The mouse isn't an arrow anymore, but a dark cross :s

Some specifications: Dell vostro 1000, ATI Radeon IGP Xpress 1150 (128mb shared), AMD64 Turion Here is what I did during the upgrade: everything default, except for once, when it asked me what to do with menu.lst (keep the old one or replace it with the newer version) I chose "replace" (default was to keep the old one). Can that be the reason?
