Ubuntu :: Match Window To Customized Firefox Profile Icon In Docky?
Jun 30, 2011
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 desktop AMD-64 on an HP DV4-2000 laptop. I have Docky running on the left side, desktop disabled and wallpapers for my four desktops. I recently killed the bottom panel (yes, it's a poor-man's 11.04).
Those details, I don't think, will have any bearing on the problem at hand, but one never knows. So, I have three different Firefox profiles I run-- the default, which has all the plugins, a stripped-down one which I use for my daily reading (I follow a number of sites using the Morning Coffee plugin), and another stripped one for my local WordPress install.
My problem is this-- I have created three separate launchers on my Desktop, one for each firefox profile. They each have their own icons, and I have successfully imported them each into Docky.
By the way, if you have problems with getting a different icon to show in Docky, open up the launcher with a text editor such as gedit and make sure that both icon listings are pointing to the one you want to use. Example:
The first icon listing is what Docky uses, the second is what the Launcher file itself looks like. the problem-- When I click on the appropriate icon, I get an instance of Firefox under the correct profile. However, Docky throws the window under the generic Firefox icon, so if I pull up the dock, there might be three instances of firefox running under the firefox icon and nothing under the icons of the other two profile launchers.
I want to be able to click on the Wordpress profile icon and get the Wordpress window that is already open (instead of getting a warning that Firefox is already running... I know that).
I found this page which tells me how to fix a Chrome problem of similar nature, however, when I try to use the command xprop I get nothing. I left it running for fifteen minutes until I gave up and did a ^C to recover my terminal.
So, my problem, as I see it, is this-- I'm running Firefox in all three cases, which Docky correctly interprets. This isn't a java implementation where I can point at the correct Java attribute.
I certainly do not want to install Elementary OS, and just want a similar interface. I already installed docky, but Unity gets in the way. Is there a way I can disable that? Also, can I hide the docky application icon on Docky? Or is there a better way to do this?
I used a custom firefox icon (included in hydroxygen theme) in jaunty. Now, in karmic, the window icon is stuck with the default firefox icon. I managed to get the gnome menu and panel icons to change by sim-linking to my desired icons and naming the links "firefox-3.5.png" I can see my custom icon when I first start Firefox, when the "starting firefox" window appears in the tasklist. After the main window is up, the icon reverts to the default icon.If you don't know what I mean here's a screenshot where I have an already-opened window alongside an opening window. I would like the window to use the icon in the instance on the right.
I would like to remove the anchor icon from Docky. I found instructions to go into gconf-editor and set "apps/docky-2/docky/items/DockyItem/ShowDockyItem" to false. Only problem is, this item does not appear.
The only folders in apps/docky-2/docky/items/ are ColoredIconDockItem and WnckDockItem. Inside ColoredIconDockItem, there's a key called DockyItem set at value 193. I tried changing/deleting that and restarting Docky, but it keeps defaulting back. I also removed and reinstalled Docky, but I found the same thing. Does anyone know how I can find the right value to change?
I have got my Ubuntu desktop looking exactly how I want it apart from one little thing. I would like Docky to use a different icon theme then the one I am using for gnome. See these are the icons I want to use on Gnome/Nautilus: But these are the icons I want for Docky: So what I want to end up with is this: I have had a look in gconf-editor to see if there are any settings to do this but there doesn't seem to be any, I even tried adding a stringvalue with "icon_theme" and putting in the theme I wanted to use but that didn't work. Is there anyway I can manual edit a Docky config file to tell it what icon theme to use?
I'm currently on Ubuntu 10.04, and I just have one small issue that is bugging me. Every time I open up zsnes just to play some games, a blank icon appears for the application in the dock. I was just wondering if there is anyway for docky to use the zsnes icon instead of the blank one.On a side note I'm just curious to know how to fix blurry icons that appear on docky as well. I.E. Ubuntu Software Manager.
I am using docky on Ubuntu. I want to have a launcher for intellij in my docky bar, but I have an issue.No matter which method for adding the launcher to the dock I use, the intellij icon specified in my .desktop won't display. Instead I get the lame spring board launcher icon. Once I launch intellij it creates another icon on docky. So now I have intellij's correct icon and the spring board launcher icon. Once I close intellij we are back to just the spring board again.Does anyone have any idea what is going on here?I shouldalso note that "idea" launches a shell script if that mattersDesktop file

I am a somewhat new user to Ubuntu, and I just upgraded to 10.04 from 9.10. I did not do a clean install, just an upgrade by running "update-manager -d". Once I upgraded, lots of problems started happening:
- I booted up, and nothing came up but text like in a command prompt; not a splash screen. Is that correct? - When I logged in, none of my windows had tops (i.e. Window Title, Buttons for minimize, maximize, and close). I changed the theme and turned on the max graphical effects, and that fixed it. (by the way, I know my graphics card can handle it because that is how it was set up on 9.10)
- ...Then, I took off the bottom panel and added Docky. Once I added my icons to it, I restarted, and then the window headers were once again gone, and Docky popped up a message in the top right saying it needed Composite support turned on (i.e. Metacity or Compiz). I turned it on in Metacity (I also have Compiz installed), but nothing changed. So now I have no tops to my windows and have to resort to ALT+F4 to close windows, etc, and I have a huge black rectangle taking up the lower 1/4 of my screen that is just black, with Docky in it...it isn't just a border around it like some other posts have said, but rather takes up almost half my screen.
When I logged in, none of my windows had tops (i.e. Window Title, Buttons for minimize, maximize, and close). Also docky give an error msg : Docky requries Composting to work probably. And I should click on compiz fusion icon and select compiz window manager every time I boot up. So how can I fix it please??
i just got this downloaded and i kinda like it. haven't customized it with apps yet, but i'll get to that later. right now i was wondering if there was any way i can set it to panel mode with only my desktop, yet still have my windows overlapping it.
How do I force Firefox to recognize a certain default firefox profile I have?
For whatever reason I can't get FF to show all of the add-ons I have. Yes, they are installed and they appear when as icons when I first boot up but after I close FF and start it again there are no icons (like Adblock).
When using Docky and clicking the window minimize button the windows will randomly minimize to the cursor and not to the dock icon. Pressing the dock icon will work as expected. I have read through the Docky bug reports and it seems it has something to do with Docky and compiz losing the window minimize region.
I have a question about the icon sixe in gnome menues. I installed the program Calibre and the icon that shows up in the menues is like 4X the size of all the other icons. All the others are fine just Calibre.How do I change the icon size to match all the others?
I recently upgraded the motherboard/processor on my computer (as in quadrupled the processor and octupled the ram). The new board has a built in GPU (intel) and from searching the forums, I think this is part of the problem. Every time I boot up the computer, I need to open the Compiz icon and use it to reload the window manager before I see any title bars, borders, etc. 've tried the .bashrc hack (metacity --replace), but that doesn't do anything. In fact, whenever I open the terminal, I need to have two tabs open in order to use it, and when I close it all the borders go away again (even when I haven't done anything). Also, the onboard sound card (intel) doesn't work, but that's another task (I at least have a compatible card for that).
If I have a panel larger than standard size, the notification icons scale accordingly but the indicators stay the same size so it looks pretty rubbish. I would like the notification icons to stay the same size.How can I fix it?
My system boots, I login and am brought to my desktop. I click on the file system icon in the launcher to open a Nautilus window. The window opens, but is unresponsive (i.e., I can't move it, clicking on the icons does nothing, etc.). If I press the super key to get the dash and the press escape, the window becomes responsive again, just like normal.
If I open a folder in the window, the window becomes halfway unresponsive in that I can't move the window, but I can select more folders and toolbar icons. The top menu no longer appears at this point, and I can't access any of the system icons on the top right of the screen. Alt-F4 closes the window even if the close button doesn't work.As another example, suppose I open a Nautilus window and then a Chromium window. Both are immediately unresponsive. If I super-esc again, I can move the Chromium window around, and it seems to work normally. I can click on the Nautilus window, but it always stays greyed out. Even if I'm clicking on things in it, the Chromium window always has focus.
I had a similar experience to this with VLC and Chromium. After clicking around enough I eventually got it to the point where VLC apparently always had focus, but I couldn't access any of VLC's controls. Double clicking anywhere on the screen fullscreened the video, and that's all I could really do. Not even escape worked to bring it back.I can usually press super to get the dash and Alt-F2 to get a command prompt. Also Alt-Shift-T seems to usually work to bring up a working Terminal (at least one that accepts commands, even if I can't move the window).Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this? The behavior is highly unpredictable and extremely frustrating. I should note that key commands don't always work, even though they seem to in my examples. So I don't think it's just a mouse issue.
After installing Ubuntu, it didnt automount my windows partitions on startup. I always had to click them in PLACES to mount them. I also had firefox profile folder same as in windows. So every time i started Ubuntu, i clicked on my windows parititon in PLACES and than firefox. It wasnt ideal but it worked. but i wanted them to automount so i edited fstab to be like this
Code: # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier # for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name # devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
This page [URL] shows how to enable apparmor firefox profile. Why isnt apparmor firefox profile enabled by default? I would postulate that this would be because there must be some limitation by having the profile enabled. If so, what would the limitation be?
I have quiet splash disabled so I can see what boot processes are run on startup, and I notice that on every time I boot my computer the Firefox profile is skipped. Here's the message: Code: Skipping profile in /etc/ apparmor.d/disable: usr.bin.firefox,I checked /etc/apparmor.d/disable, and see that there is indeed a link to usr.bin.firefox. So I'm wondering how/why it got there. I haven't touched anything in AppArmor since my clean install of Natty.
Is there something that has changed from Windows 10 to Windows 10.1?
So on my computers I have Linux/OSX + Windows
Typically I have housed the FF profile (and TB for that matter) on the NTFS partition. This has worked for many years and so no matter which OS I load, I start of at the same place I ended.
But since I installed Win 10.1, I don't use Windows that often, but when I do I feel that for some reason, FF is not picking up the profile info. Add-ons are missing. Session restore not the same. (There are similar issues with TB as well).
