Ubuntu :: Gnome-panel Doesn't Start On Login / But Gconf Settings Look Correct

Sep 5, 2010

I installed avant-window-navigator and followed these instructions to remove gnome-panel from startup: URL...However I have since uninstalled AWN and now cannot get gnome-panel to load at startup.I think I have put my settings back where they should be -- looking at them in gconf-editor:

1. desktop > gnome > session, the required_components_list is [windowmanager,filemanager,panel]

2. desktop > gnome > session > required_components_list, the panel value is "gnome-panel"

Yet gnome-panel does not load at startup. Any ideas why?Clarification: I can get gnome-panel to load by listing it under Startup Applications, but I am curious why it won't load via the gconf settings.

Ubuntu :: Moving Gnome-panel Gconf Settings From One Computer To Another

Jan 10, 2010

I have a bunch of gconf settings that I change by default when I install Ubuntu on someone's machine and thus I've created a script to make it easier after a fresh installation. Here is a list of changes I make so far:


However, I'm looking to remove the top panel and have only the bottom panel like I have set up on my machine. The gconf settings seem to be pretty complex and I'm not sure which keys I should be changing to remove the top panel and include the settings I have currently for the bottom panel (e.g. Menu Bar | Shortcuts | Window List | Notification Area | Clock)

Ubuntu :: Gnome-panel Process Doesn't Start?

Jan 8, 2011

I forced a quick restart with 'sudo shutdown -f now' and when logged back in gnome-panel doesn't start at all. I can right-click on the desktop & run terminal from there, so I'm running web browser from terminal. I tried 'sudo killall gnome-panel' & got 'no process found' I tried doing a full restart, still the same.

I tried running gnome-panel from the terminal.

'gnome-panel' gives me my panel after a 4 or 5 second delay. If I exit the terminal or Ctrl-C I lose the panel again.

'sudo gnome-panel' gives me what appears to be the panel for the root user.

Fedora :: Gnome 3 Doesn't Start No Login

Jul 30, 2011

When I boot my Fedora 15 installation it shows me the blue screen with progress indicator, however I do not reach the login screen.Instead I see the textual shell where the last item is:Started Display Manager.It looks like my monitors are not detected anymore. I have been working with them though (this appeared after a restart). I am not sure how I determined it but I read in some log that no display was detected. Nothing changed to the hardware set up however.I see some suggestions to run system-config-display as root.However this command can not be found nor can it be found when I run yum install system-config-display.

Ubuntu :: Gnome-panel Settings Per Monitor Config?

Mar 31, 2011

I have a maverick box plugged into two monitors, using the open source radeon driver and randr. Each monitor has a top and bottom gnome panel, with various widgets in each. There is no /etc/xorg.conf. The Problem: If I 1) remove both monitors to plug the box into my HDTV, or 2) connect to the X server remotely from a laptop, the panels all get shoved onto the one display. Do you have any advice on how I might specify different gnome panel 'profiles' for the different uses of this computer?

Ubuntu :: Panel Does Not Start At Login?

Apr 15, 2010

For some strange reason, my gnome panel does not start up when I log in. I have created a thingy following some instructions that I found in another thread, on which I have to click twice every time I log in in order for the panel to appear. This seems to be related to configuration issue in my user account, because if I create a guest user account, the panel will appear normally. Now if I move my home folder to that account, the panel will not start.

I believe this has to do with the fact that I installed and then uninstalled compiz

Ubuntu :: Start Tomboy Minimized To Gnome Panel?

Jun 24, 2010

I'd like to start Tomboy (the sticky-note application) at start-up but have it minimized to the Gnome panel. I tried adding tomboy to System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications, but then Tomboy opens up in full-screen mode. Then I tried adding tomboy-panel instead, but that doesn't seem to do anything at all. What's the trick I'm missing?

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Changing Start Icon On Gnome Panel?

Feb 13, 2011

Recently updated to 10.10 Wondering if it's possible to change the start icon on the gnome panel? In the past I have been able to accomplish this by navigating to the theme's icon folder (usr/share/icons), replacing it with my new icon, updating the cache and restarting gnome. That method doesn't seem to be working however.

Ubuntu :: Gnome-panel Doesn't Launch Automatically?

Jul 30, 2011

I'm using 11.04 with the old panels, no side panel. For some reason gnome-panel doesn't launch automatically so I have to do it via terminal, which means I have to keep the terminal tab open if I want to keep my panels.

Adding it to startup programs resulted in invisible panels (Cannot register the panel shell: there is already one running.), which I bypassed by typing gnome-panel --replace. I would like a permanent solution though..

Ubuntu :: GConf Proxy Settings Not Reflecting 9.10 Server

Mar 16, 2010

I'm running a Ubuntu 9.10 server with Openbox as the WM. I'm have set the proxy and http_proxy settings at /system/prosy and /system/http_proxy using gconf-editor. The settings seem to stick in gconf. The gnome-settings-daemon seems to be running fine. The problem is firefox-3.5, apt etc does not recognize the gconf proxy settings. I do not understand why firefox does not honor these settings.

I've been trying to write a bash script that will change the gconf settings for docky. The goal is to make it have a setup similar to Elementary OS or Pinguy OS... that means one docky instance on the bottom and one on the left.

Ubuntu :: After Update Of 10.04 - Can't Start Gnome Desktop After Login

Jun 10, 2010

I use ubuntu 10.04 in VirtualBox (upgrated from 09.10), host os is Win7.

3-4 days ago update of ubuntu required restart of Ubuntu (linux kernel was updated).

After 3 days (i.e. yesterday) I restarted the system. I found that flashlib in Chrome became to work unstable, some artefact appeared, and only scrolling down-up in browser allowed to update view of screen. I run update manager. It showed ~88Mb of updates for last 3 days.

After download of updates, apply changes was failed! I faced this first time (!). I remember message like "can not synchronize file /usr/share/..." or something like that.

I restarted ubuntu again. Now I could not login. System hangs after login. No Gnome menu appears etc.

I tried to fix issue using dpkg. I found that some lib (ure) related to OpenOffice was not assigned (version XXX required, but bersion XXXY found). dpkg offered to solve this by some combination. I did so. Then I run dpkg update, and no errors appeared.

Also I updated VirtualBox to version 3.2.4, updated VirualBox Additions via console terminal in ubuntu.

But still I can't fix problem with gdm/gnome.

dpkg-reconfigure gnome-*** did not help for me.

I tried to check logs, but I have not found something "interesting".

At the moment terminal is the only way to login.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Doesn't Appear In The List Of Sessions At Login?

Jul 31, 2010

When I get to the login screen on my computer (with ubuntu-desktop, kubuntu-desktop, and xubuntu-desktop installed on Ubuntu), Gnome isn't in the list of desktop environments!

My temporary solution:

I have Openbox/Gnome. I also have an icon in my panel that opens "compiz --replace" so I can still use the regular WM with compiz.

Why my temporary solution isn't good enough:

It's annoying to have to have an extra icon in my panel, and to have to press it at login. Also, I don't get the Compiz splash screen when I login. Overall it's just not as impressive.

Is there any way to get Gnome back in the menu?

Software :: GNU Screen Doesn't Start Shells As A Login Shell?

Mar 22, 2010

I want to have an ls' output colorization in gnu screen. Colorization in my system (Slackware 13) is realized by aliasing of ls in /etc/profile.d/coreutils-dircolors.sh:

$ alias ls
alias ls='/bin/ls $LS_OPTIONS'
where $LS_OPTIONS is
$ echo $LS_OPTIONS
-F -T 0 --color=auto

But in screen this alias isn't defined. It seems like /etc/profile script isn't executed at shell starting in screen. I think it happens because screen starts a shell not as a login shell. I tried to correct it by adding to ~/.screenrc or to /etc/screenrc. The problem is the same. By the way when I start screen as a root I haven't this problem. What's wrong?
