Ubuntu :: Panel Not Using Transparency Correctly?

Jun 25, 2010

I've been having some trouble getting transparency to work properly on the panels. I've attached a screenshot in which I've got a fully transparent background image applied to the panel, yet the main menu area, status area, and clock are not affected by the background.

I've searched google quit a bit, and all I find are topics saying things like using alt-scroll to make it transparent, but I want all of the icons to remain opaque. Also, people say to use a solid color and adjust the transparency in the properties menu, I've tried all of this, these are obvious.

Fedora :: Enabling Panel Transparency Shows Video Artefacts On The Panel?

Jan 23, 2010

After a fresh install of Fedora 12 I'm delivered to the image on the attachment. Well aside from not being able to see icons on the left, or go to the any terminal and not seeing anything and be forced to blind type and hope for the best there are some other issues. Enabling panel transparency shows video artefacts on the panel.nouveau doesn't enable 3D(I use a NVidia GeForce 9600 GT 512MB and my monitor is a ACER LCD X223W)) kind and point me to resources about the nouveau driver and how to configure it so it starts to work?

Ubuntu :: Panel Transparency Doesn't Work?

Apr 30, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, and I'm trying to make my panel semi-transparent.

Unfortunately, the whole thing won't go transparent, only the blank areas without applets!

I know you can hack it in Compiz, but then everything goes transparent, including text and icons, which I don't want.

As you can see from the screenshot, I'm using the Radiance theme, but this also occurs with Ambience.

Ubuntu :: Lost Gnome Panel Transparency On Upgrade To 10.04

Jul 25, 2010

I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 10.04 and things went pretty smooth. The only real issue is that I lost the transparency settings for the menu & indicator applets on my top knome panel. I simply don't remember how i did it last time, and i've been searching the net for an hour for a solution with no luck. Many results suggested the use of the Compiz Settings Manager's opacity settings, but that opacity applies to everything, including the text & icons. I thought i used the "gnome color chooser" package to do it last time, but I cannot find the option in the gui. how to make the background of the menu (applications/places/system) and indicator applet have transparent backgrounds while retaining full text/icon brightness?

Ubuntu Installation :: Panel Transparency Is Lost On Restart?

May 2, 2011

I have had no issue with the panel's transparency in previous Ubuntu versions. This all started w/ Natty. I set up transparency (right click on panel, Nav through Properties > Background, Check "Solid Color," slide bar to my preferred opacity, & click "Close." The panel looks as follows: But when I restart the computer it goes grey:

killall command doesn't work, I have moved the panel, I have created a new one. The "closest" I found were people complaining (back in December) that the theme switched to grey. But I don't think the panel is taking up another theme, it is simply not painting the transparent image.

I didn't like Unity so I disabled it (still installed). I also removed indicator-me and indicator-messenger via synaptic as I have since Lucid Lynx. I removed the black bubble notifications and removed the shutdown/logout/restart confirmation/countdown prompt w/ a couple of code-hacks I found online as I have since Jaunty Jackalope. I also tried to change the opacity though an option inside Compiz's "Opacity, Brightness and Saturation". This also made AWN icons transparent so I undid it. I use the "Glossy P" theme w/ "Snow Apple" icons.

Ubuntu :: Top Panel Not Drawn Correctly?

Dec 7, 2010

Sometimes (almost always) when I log in to Ubuntu, the top panel is not 'drawn' perfectly. The left has always been fine (menus, shortcuts). But the right has issues. Most often the icons for wireless or custom applications are half there or sometimes only a white vertical line is there instead. Sometimes the profile name is half visible twice (meaning the first part of my name is drawn next to itself. right click the panel, choose 'properties' and check 'show hide buttons'. I can then immediately uncheck it and everything is drawn correctly.

Ubuntu :: Get The Gnome Panel Clock To Work Correctly

Oct 30, 2010

I recently installed 10.10, and I have not been able to get the gnome panel clock to work correctly. I will set it to the correct time, but every time I reboot it will be wrong by several hours. I have never had a problem in previous versions and I have always set the clock by right-clicking on the clock -> Preferences ->Time Settings. Am I doing something wrong or is there an easy way to synchronize with a time server?

Ubuntu :: Adding The Panel - Gnome Crashed And Computer Won't Boot Correctly

Dec 8, 2010

I have a desktop computer running Linux Mint 9 with the Gnome desktop (not sure what version -- though by default Mint 9 comes with Gnome 2.30). Last night I tried adding a panel to the desktop by right-clicking on the existing bottom panel and selecting "New Panel". Please note that I've already got another panel at the top of the desktop on the left side on autohide and no expand.

When I added another panel, it placed a normal panel on the right side of the screen without any problems. When I right-clicked on the new right-side panel and selected "Properties", I changed the orientation to "top" (where there was already a panel, if you remember). After that moment, it seemed like the entire desktop environment crashed. Everything was completely unresponsive -- the only thing moving on the screen was the mouse. I couldn't do anything with the gui, not even shut the computer down.

Since the gui shutdown wasn't working, I switched to a different tty screen, logged in, and ran a shutdown command with the option to reboot. The computer shut down fine, and when it woke back up, the same problem was still there: Nothing loaded on the screen except for the background image and the mouse, which was still able to move but nothing else. I have the computer set up to automatically log me in, so I know it's not crashing before the user prefs are being loaded...

After restarting it again and getting the same result, I switched to a different tty screen, logged in, and tried messing around with stuff to no avail. I did notice, however, that the computer was becoming evermore sluggish, and something printed on the screen stating that a program had been terminated because of "not enough memory". It seemed like some process was consuming WAY too much RAM by itself or a program was accidentally forkbombing the computer. ...All because I added a panel...?

Software :: Application Icon In Panel Bar Is Not Showing Correctly

Jun 6, 2011

I found that some application icons in the panel bar (at the bottom) is not shown correctly, which makes it hard to tell which application it is when I iconify that application. For example, the emacs application icon in panel bar used to be like a goat head. But now it looks like a generic icon, which I cannot tell it is an emacs application. I attached a screen shot here to show this issue.

Software :: Debian Squeeze Update The Panel Launchers Don't Click Correctly?

Apr 25, 2011

Right after I did the distribution upgrade on debian, the little launchers in the bottom panel don't work right. When I have many programs running, and try to click the launchers to change programs, they don't always change right away. If I click the program windows, (if they are not maximized) they change fine.

I can click on the launcher for the program that is currently running on top and it will minimize and maximize, but I cannot change to another program right away by clicking the launcher. However, if I first right click the launcher, then it will respond to the next left click and the window will come to the top.

I wondered if it is just broken on my account, not the whole system, so I made a different account on the machine and it does not happen there. The new account works normally. So I am wondering how to reset my profile or theme or something to make the left click on the panel launchers work.

I don't know what they are actually called, but I am not talking about the shortcut launchers to start the programs. I only mean the little minimized box that stays in the panel when the program is already running.

Ubuntu :: Use Fake Transparency With Compiz?

Ubuntu :: Removing Transparency In Terminal

May 7, 2010

By default in Lucid, Gnome Terminal is transparent.I was on my new Lucid install[1], in Terminal, typing away on the far side of some sshes, and reading some code, when I noticed how awkward it was to read because the background was showing through. "Fine", I thought, "I know where that setting is, although it's a strange default".But Terminal's "Edit Profiles->Edit->Background" revealed it was set to "Solid color". In fact, setting it to "Transparent background", and cranking the Shade up to Maximum was one way of removing the transparency.

A little hunting around revealed that "System->Preferences->Appearance->Visual Effects" could be set to None instead of Normal, and that would fix the problem.So, your choices for a functional terminal are to disable all Compiz eyecandy, or to turn on transparency in order to turn off transparency.Does this strike anybody else as wrong? Is there another control I've missed?

Ubuntu :: Enable Transparency In Xfce?

Aug 26, 2010

I've been looking around for a while now for the answer to a pretty simple question. I'm normally a gnome user but I'm setting up an old computer with xubuntu for a friend, and I can't figure out how to get transparency to work for guake. In gnome I just go to appearance > visual effects, don't see anything like that in xfce.I downloaded compizconfig-settings-manager (which I assume downloaded the rest of compiz) and did "compiz --replace" but that didn't work. What would I need to do to get basic opengl effects?

Ubuntu :: Enable Rainlendar Transparency Options?

Jan 12, 2010

I'm running 9.10 and I've installed rainlendar. It runs like a champ. The problem is I can't move the transparency bar in the options panel. I had this problem with Xubuntu when I was using it and all I had to do was enable compositing for it to work. I have no idea how to do that under gnome and I didn't see any option like that in compiz when I was using the manager.

Ubuntu :: Terminal Loses Transparency After Upgrade

May 27, 2010

I lost transparent terminal windows in LL after you upgraded, you have fallen victim to the not-too-atypical "Preferences File Use Changed Krap". Essentially when you look at a preferences pane it appears that everything is ok, but actually, the way the preference file is being used changed in this version of Ubuntu and you are being punished for it. We need to get the new version of the program to fix the preference file for us, which is easy enough to do by just making the setting changes again.

So, in Terminal,
1) Go to Edit->Profile Preferences.
2) Pick the "Background" tab. You will most likely see that the "Transparent Background" radio is set, but the background is not transparent.
3) Click on one of the other radios (I did "background image") and the terminal window should become transparent.
4) Click on the Transparent radio again and dismiss the dialog.

Ubuntu :: Unabling Metacity Transparency In Gnome 3?

Jul 23, 2011

For whatever reasons, I cannot seem to enable metacity transparency. I'm running the 64 bit version of Ubuntu 11.04 and I broke Unity in favor of Gnome 3. I have enabled metacity compositing and adjusted the opacity to the desired level via the configuration editor.

However, there is no transparency whatsoever. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm currently working hard on creating Gnome Shell themes and GTK+ 3 themes that look and work well together.
