See, I like the KDE (like Kubuntu) but I dislike the menu bars and the taskbar (though I like the setup of it once the menu button is opened), and I much prefer GNOME's icons and bars, is there any way I can do this?
somewhere along the line I disabled the description that appears below icons in all gnome application menus. I don't know how I did it, and I cannot seem to find the way to undo it I would like full descriptions under the icons in my menus. I tried System -> Preferences -> Appearance but could not find what I was looking for. I also tried System -> Preferences -> File Management. Neither seems to help me out. This is not an urgent problem, but an annoying one.
I can't seem to hide any items on the "Games" menu from "Main Menu" (System->Preferences->Main Menu). I can hide items on all of the other menus under the main one but the game links won't change. Is there another way to do this?
In gnome 3, when I go to activities>applications I either have duplicates (sometimes I do and sometimes I don't) of some programs or no icons for the ones I uninstalled, but they are still there. How do I hide/delete them?
For no known reason there are a few subdirectories added to my Gnome - Locations - menu. Both the traditional panel menu and the new - computer - menu In the - computer - menu there is a option to remove items but this does not work. Is there any way to remove those subdirectories from the menu list. Or/and where can I find that list to edit this manually. (Menueditor alacarte does not edit locations and system). (Suse 11.1)
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?
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.
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?
I recently installed virtual box on debian and after it had finished my terminal informed me that I could remove some "unnecessary" software by use of sudo apt-get autoremove. When I did this, some of the icons on the desktop changed and all of the icons in the drop down menu on the bar at the top of the screen also changed to ordinary folder symbols. The theme that I was using also went away. I restarted the computer and it booted back into a shell prompt with no GUI. I tried to get back to the GUI using alt+f7 but it didn't seem to exist
The top right menu icons turn into a real mess. I can still click on them, it's just they aren't displaying properly. Sometimes certain icons disappear completely. Other times the icons appear no problem. It appears to be different each time I boot the computer. See attached image for example
When I right-click somewhere and the pop-menu shows up with options like 'copy', 'paste' and so on it wasn't supposed to be icons in front of these items?Actually, a lot of applications like Firefox aren't showing icons on their menus
The icons for the main menu are not appearing and the option that allowed them to be displayed under the main menu window is not there anymore. How do I get my icons back, it is looking quite bare and boring without them.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04. I'm a first time user. when i boot up computer, I can choose Ubuntu, and it starts up, but there are no desktop icons, no menu bar (?). I'm able to right click and create folders and files, but that's about it. any ideas? Installed on an older pc running windows xp
I just installed cairo (may i say is the greatest ever?) but there is a gmenu there that when i click on it the icons for the menu wont work, there is a setting for configuring ths applet that lets me enable and disable the icons for it and i have it on enable..
I have also notice that i got no icons for the system menu i the gnome panel, is this related?
I'm trying to configure Ubuntu 10.04 for my personal tastes. I have already done a lot but I need help in continuing my endeavour., I come here, having Googled my query and receiving no help, to ask you lot.The icons on the main menu (the one that only has the black Ubuntu logo; not the default three menu one) looks simply vulgar so I want to remove them. I was able to do so in the past but now it eludes me. I think having the icons for everything looks unprofessional and cluttered. Is there a way I can remove those nasty icons from the menu?So it is clear, I'm talking about the Swiss Army knife, cards, and etc on the main menu and all the other icons on the sub-menus.
i recently installed spotify for wine for a second time, but the icon has not appeared in the applications>wine menu like it did the first time i installed it, is there a way to add the icon to the wine menu, or a reason why the icon did not go straight to the wine menu like it normally does when a new program is installed?
