Ubuntu :: How To Move Panels To Different Screens

Dec 20, 2010

I'm setting up a second monitor connected to my laptop via Twinview in the Nvidea settings manager for my system. It is working just fine, except for the fact that when I enable it, it puts the Desktop panels on the secondary screen, as opposed to the primary one. Is there any way to make new panels on the primary screen, or to move them over to the primary screen? I am running Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit on an HP Pavillion dv7 laptop.

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 :: Clicking Does Not Move Window To Front

May 25, 2010

I have two windows A and B open unmaximized such that their area overlaps with A in front. If I click window B it gets the focus as I expect, but window A stays on top of it. All my keyboard events get sent to window B correctly, but I need to click on the title bar for it to appear on top of window A. Switching windows using Alt+TAB or taskbar click works as I expect - window B will appear on top. I encountered this in 10.4, not sure if it was there before or I only noticed it now. Is this a bug or some setting somewhere I need to adjust?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Lost Ability To Move Application Window

Dec 4, 2010

I use Xubunt 10.04, today when login, I found:

1)I lost ability to move application window. eg, The firefox window is stuck and anchored at the upper left corner. I can still resize by dragging the lower right corner. I notice the upper right corner resize tab disappears. If open another application, it is again anchored at upper left corner and cannot be moved.

2)under Settings>Xfce Setting Manager> Window Manager, all the icons are gone. Same inside Window ManagerTweaks. I used "xfce4-panel" in terminal, it doesn't help.

Ubuntu :: If Move The Window To The Second Screen It Switches To Fullscreen Mode

Upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 which trashed my useful desktop.

Synapticed gnome and changed login preferences to ubuntu classic which basically fixed the desktop except...

If I open a program, say LibreOffice or firefox it opens correctly.

If I move the window to the second screen, it switches to fullscreen mode.

If I click on the resize button, then it opens correctly, but on the first screen

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Shortcut (Move Window To Workspace X) Not Working

May 12, 2011

On my main PC (10.04) I have Alt+1,Alt+2 etc configured to jump to that specific workspace and ctrl+Alt+1,ctrl+alt+2 etc to move the focused window to the specific workspace and it works fine. Trying to replicate that on my netbook (11.04/unity) however fails. I can set the keyboard shortcuts up to switch to different workspaces but the shortcuts to move a window to a specific workspace just dont seem to work. The default RSI inducing default ctrl+shift+alt+(up,down,left & right) to move a window to an adjacent workspace does however. Is this specific to my install? If not how do i file a bug report?

General :: What Is It Called When You Move A PDF Window While It Is Loading

May 18, 2010

1. What is it called when you move a PDF window while it is loading and the window manager does not keep up with the image, (it gets all blurry when the window is moved?)Why does this happen?

2. Why is it that when a browser window is clicked to load a new address it won't always go to it. It has to be clicked again.

3 Why is it that sometimes IE is the only browser that will work on XP. FireFox and Opera will not load a page but IE will.

4 Why is it that Firefox on Linux sometimes everything inside the window is slow to appear. It has to be closed to fix it. When the contents does appear it is all at once.

5.Why is printing different things on Linux a problem. I have a lot of inconsistency with trying to print things from Evince. Some docs print and some won't. Copying and pasting is also a problem for Evince.Why?

6. Is there a way to have Linux Shut down after computer activity has stopped and not just with a timer. Lets say I'm trying to download something and I want it to turn off after it has finished with the down load.

7. Why are some Web pages biased towards Windows. I notice that some java scripts will only run right on Windows machines with IE. A lot of on-line forms are like this.

8. Can (MOVIES, PICTURES AND MUSIC) torrents be downloaded on Linux without risk?

9. It seams that Linux browsers do not keep previous web pages in memory so if you want to go back Linux always has to reload them from the server. Why is this?

10. Why is it that browsers sometimes won't indicate that the page has finished loading, "ever".

11. Why does Linux turn on the number-lock when loading its self?

12. Why can't the brightness be adjusted in Totem? There is a menu to change it but it does not work.

Ubuntu :: Cairo Dock Wont Dissappear Down When Move A Unmaximized Window?

Sep 23, 2010

I got everything configured from my compiz settings eye candy to animations on my cairo dock and cairo dock will close and go down when I maximize a window. My problem is when I have a small window and I wobble and move them to the dock, the dock wont disappear and the window looks dumb behind the docks/widgets. I tried many things and clicking on different options in the behaviour section. Could you just give me a heads up on what to do so I can get it done.

Ubuntu :: Move A File To A Nautilus Window With Folders In List View?

Nov 23, 2010

I don't know if this is a known issue, but when I want to copy/move a file to a folder containing lots of sub-folder displayed as list, I can't do a simple drag&drop, because there is no empty space to move this file. It will always go into one of the sub-folders. So obviously I have to go up one folder or to change view from list to Icon or Compact. Is it a known issue? Is there a solution? (Using GNOME nautilus 2.30.1)

Ubuntu :: Stuttering Window Dragging - Drag Windows Around Cursor Shudders And Shakes The Wondows Won't Move Smoothly

Apr 21, 2011

I'm fairly new to ubuntu and I've been messing around with customizing my desktop/UI over the past week or so and I must have messed something up. After I got sick of how slow Wallpapoz was to change backgrounds between workspaces (I'm using GNOME) I turned on the Wallpaper plugin in Compiz and turned off the nautilus desktop. That worked great for the backgrounds but now whenever I try to drag windows around the cursor shudders and shakes and the wondows won't move smoothly. I eventually get them to where I want them to go but it's very annoying.

So far, I have re-enabled the nautilus desktop and reinstalled nautilus with synaptic, neither of which did anything.

Ubuntu :: Disabled Some Plugins- Unity Is Gone And Everything Opens In The Upper Left Hand Corner - Unable To Move The Window?

It was pretty rash for me just to disable plugins,how to get everything back to normal.
