I tried xdg-desktop-icon command. It does install a shortcut. The shortcut works when double clicked. But the shortcut is shown as a standard icon, not the icon defined in the .desktop file. Do I miss something?
I have been trying to active the shortcut <Super>+D to minimize all active windows and show desktop. Compiz is already install on my system,that I have tried all possible combinations of "show desktop" functionality in Compiz and Gnome itself. However, whenever I use the shortcut, it activates(maximize) one window first, and it shows desktop if I use the shortcut second time. Actually same thing happens when I press the "show desktop" button on the panel as well
noticed that the button at the bottom left corner of the desktop doesn't work.It is supposed to hide everything on the desktop and when clicked again bring everything back.I was jacking around (learning) with Compiz yesterday, but not sure how that could affect it.
I hate the purple "Show Desktop Icon" in Lucid and I finally figured out how to change it: 1) sudo apt-get install wmctrl 2) Create the following script and proceed as directed within the script's comments: #!/bin/sh # GLD's Show Desktop Button script. Here's how to do it. # sudo apt-get install wmctrl # Right click on the panel and select "Add To Panel". # Choose "Custom Application Launcher". # Use the file name of this script for the Command. # Use whatever icon that you want. The generic Ubuntu Show_Desktop_Button icon is located here: # /usr/share/gnome/help/user-guide/C/figures/show_desktop_button.png
if [ -f /tmp/toggle_show_desktop_$USER ]thenwmctrl -k off rm /tmp/toggle_show_desktop_$USER elsewmctrl -k on touch /tmp/toggle_show_desktop_$USERfi
I've created a custom profile for the terminal, and have edited CompizConfig to make it a transparent shell, so now my background is essentially now my terminal. However, when I click "Show Desktop", it minimizes everything, including this terminal. Would I be able to edit the setting for this so it keeps the terminal up
It always shows a same icon, for every application which shows message tray icon. I just did some shell extension work after fresh installation of F15, nothing related on message tray. Don't know how to change it back.Dose anyone knows how to customize message tray icon for gnome-shell?
I have just created an 11.3 64 bit image using susestudio. All seems well but would like to customize the desktop via my script that I have added. My question is how do I remove the home directory and the trash icon from the desktop? Or better said what is the path to removing the symbolic link, I cannot find the symbolic links in the desktop directory. It is empty, I do not see any symbolic links under /home/test/Desktop?
I'm trying to add .desktop file for my application but I'm stuck with very strange problem.I created 48x48 icon for my program called etmmanager.png.I created .desktop file according to specifications:
Code: [Desktop Entry] X-SuSE-translate=true Categories=Application;Utility;X-SuSE-TimeUtility; Comment=ETM Manager for time logging Exec=etmmanager code....
My problem is that icon is not working in menu! I can find my program in Utilities->Time->ETM Manager and this is what I wanted, but there is no icon for the program.
It starts working if I specify absolute path in etmmanager.desktop file like Code: Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/etmmanager.png About my system - Opensuse 11.1 KDE 4.2
I've installed 11.04 as an upgrade to 10.10. Now, the back/forward buttons in Firefox have no icons, which means they're hard to find, and they're also much thinner than usual. Also, the home button has disappeared and I can't put it back from the customize menu. I've reinstalled Firefox to no avail.
My power button icon on the toolbar in Unity is invisible -- that is, it occupies the far right-most column of pixels and displays no icon. (See attached screenshot -- the power button menu only comes up with the mouse all the way to the far right (where you can't really see it in the screencap.)).Any idea how to get it back? It's not a big deal, but it'd be nice to avoid being made fun of by my OS X/Wind0ze-using friends for having an invisible power button.I have Natty installed, but using the same /home (and thus the same config files) from previous installs. Might that be the problem?
I am using pogodynka.sh to try and get conky to show the temperature and incorporate and icon from weather.ttf to show a graphical depiction... i.e. a sun for sunny, a cloud with a lightening bolt for thunder...
I have managed to get it working in the past (about a year ago) Now I am unable to get the icon to show, the font is installed and being used by other parts of the same instance of conky. However the pogodynka DOES state the temperature. I just have no graphical representation of that, thus it creates a big blank spot in the middle of my conky....
I don't know what could be causing it, but my Icons from the panel sometimes won't show the whole icon, sometimes it show two icons overlapping each other, I was hoping it would be that I should have set the Panel size according to a "better" and standard Icons size, but that did'nt solve the problem as I changed to 48px; does anyone have a clue what could be causing it?
I have set up a server running ubuntu desktop, and I'm able to logon through remote desktop (win 7). The problem is that if I logon from computer 1 and open some programs, I don't see these programs when I logon from computer 2.I logon with the same user, so I find this strange. Is there some setting I have missed to be able to see the same from any computer (logon through remote desktop).
Could you please help me to get the "Multiple Desktop Windows Icons" back on my KDE desktop panel?I accidentally disabled it by right clicking on bottom left of the panel and now i am not able to restore it back through System Setting > Multiple Desktop
I just installed Fedora 15 with the gnome desktop which looks like the android system for mobile phones, I installed wine which put the icons on my desktop but whenever I install a windows app it doesn't put an icon on my desktop for that particular application. How would I add an icon for those window apps so I can lunch them from the desktop, I don't know if you call that the desktop or just the program luncher either way how do I put an icon there so I can run those windows apps from there?
I deleted all APs in my Wireless Section of network manager. After that, the whole network manager icon disappeared. I added the icon back on the panel, but I don't think its the right one. It doesn't do the two green cicles thing when I connect my ethernet wire in. It also doesn't show any wireless AP when I left click on the icon. It doesn't even have an X mark on the bottom left of the icon when no network is detected
