Jan 6, 2011

haven't seen this in years since I'm using Ubuntu, but might probably be just a single step to get it back and running.I have a notebook with Ubuntu 10.10 newly installed and since some days, there are no more icons in the notification area.Before it stopped working, I had to do a hard shutdown because the system hung.For now, i.e. when I go to a terminal and enter

Ubuntu :: Conky Alignment - Desktop Icons Disappearing ?

Aug 21, 2010

I'm trying to work out with Conky on my Ubuntu 10.04 x64.

Conky is set to Top Left alignment, but it doesn't seem to be ending up there at all. After changing all of the different alignments, it doesn't seem to move around much at all.

(Desktop Screenshot Attached)

My other issue, which may have something to do with the way my Conky is set up, is that I have a couple of icons on the desktop, but they only show up when I put my mouse over them, and in the next couple of seconds they go away. It seems to be related to the refresh frequency of conky, which seems to be all of my issues right now.

Another note, this conky code is essentially pulled directly from the conky website.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Disappearing Icons And Applications In Gnome - 14

Feb 12, 2011

I just did a clean install of fedora 14 on a dell precision 690 (multiprocessor system, with buckets of memory--16gb). It is old, but a great machine. It is dual boot to windows, but that is probably irrelevant. Note, the reason I did the clean install was the exact problem I report here had cropped up on this system running fedora 14, but I was having kluged together the system after grub issues, so i blamed it on something unrelated and hoped a clean install would solve this.

After installing the system, running updates, etc., I installed open office, and virtualbox. I then set up two virtual machines in virtual box, both Win XP, and added my favorite windows applications. that may not be relevant, but that is the history. I added a couple pieces of high end software too, which required some odd libraries--libgdal and libexpat.

After a couple of of days of using the machine, I tried to run open office (after having used it several times, and logged off several times) and it wouldn't execute. I then realized that all of my desktop icons had disappeared. I then experimented and realized several other applications wouldn't execute from the gnome applications menu. however, I could execute anything I wanted from the command line in a terminal.

I read a suggestion in the forums to create a new user. painful process, but that did indeed solve the problem (temporarily). But then the problem repeated with the new user. So now, this really sucks and I'm cursing fedora. After consulting my linux geek brother, I tried something else--I loaded kde, and tried that. (btw--why doesn't ctl-alt-backspace allow you to switch windows managers in this linux?)

Anyway, kde works fine with everything except open office--it still won't run for some reason, even in kde.

Strangely, my virtual machines worked throughout all this. that is, I could execute virtualbox from gnome, everything runs fine.

Ubuntu :: Items In Xfce Panel Are Disappearing

Apr 1, 2010

Items in my xfce panel are disappearing. First it was the networkmanager launcher which disappeared in xfce but still appeared when I used GNOME, then it disappeared in GNOME. My "x updates are available" icon and volume control icons are also gone, and just now my entire "applications" drop down menu disappeared. I frequently use xmonad so I know all the /bin/ commands for critical programs, but this is really annoying. Also, my desktop keeps changing back to a certain image without me changing it. If I was on windows I would think I had a virus. Maybe I dowlnoaded some bad games I was trying to play in wine? xubuntu 9.10, not updated for a little while since the icon disappeared, Thinkpad T61...

Ubuntu :: Inhibit Applet Keeps Disappearing From Panel

May 25, 2010

It showed up once I upgraded to Lucid. The inhibit applet keeps disappearing from the panel. It doesn't matter where I place it, if it's locked in place, or what panel I've placed it on; it will be there, but then disappear once I reboot the computer and log back in to the desktop. It shows as an empty space where the icon used to be; right clicking the blank space gives me the standard context menu for the panel instead of the context menu for the inhibit applet. The only way I can get the icon to reappear is if I go to the panel properties and fidget around with the Expand and Hide Buttons options. Does anyone have this same problem?

Ubuntu :: Infamous Disappearing Gnome Panel?

Sep 1, 2010

What is it with the gnome panel that causes its inexplicable disappearance? Is it a bug? I've been using Ubuntu since 7.04 and I think this panel disappearance phenomenon has become more frequent in recent distros. Since I installed 10.04 nearly 2 months ago, I've had to rebuild gnome twice, the last time today.

I've looked at some (maybe most) of the forum posts on this issue and there doesn't seem to be any clear reason why the panel drops out as it does, not that I can see anyhow. Ubuntu developers, please don't get me wrong. I respect your work and will certainly stick with Ubuntu, no doubt about that. But the evaporation of the panel is a niggling issue, having to restore and then setup the panel with the file browser and all the rest.

Ubuntu :: Duplicate Icons In Notification Area?

Jan 5, 2010

I have the notification area displayed in my panel. Normally, it shows one speaker icon, one battery icon, and one wireless network icon. But now it occasionally shows 2 speakers and no wireless icon, or two batteries and no wireless icon. Sometimes rebooting fixes it. But it seems to be random. This used to work fine, and I can't figure out what I did to mess with it.

Ubuntu :: Set Area For Icons / Files On The Desktop?

Jul 19, 2010

I have covergloobus installed and if I download something to my desktop sometimes it goes under covergloobus and obviously that means moving it around to then get it and then put covergloobus back.

It would be nice to set some kind of rule to not have items go there or have something like in KDE and their "desktop folder".

Ubuntu :: Two Volume Control Icons In Notification Area?

Apr 12, 2010

This happened upon boot-up this morning. Two volume control iconspeared in the notification area. One volume control icon is the real thing, the other appears to overwrite the network manager icon, which isn't showing up at all. If I left click on the "dummy" icon, it does nothing. If I right click and select About, it describes itself as the notification area, the same as if I right click on the little = handle to the left of the notification area. Ubuntu 9.10, system up-to-date.

At the left of the Fusion Icon (see the attachment) there is a small green dot. That is the icon for Skype. How do I make it so that all the icon is shown? Every time I try to move the three small lines to the left (after unlocking of course) hoping to let Skype icon show, I move the Fusion Icon and nothing changes.

Ubuntu :: Notification Area Icons Pushed Off Screen?

Aug 18, 2011

I am using Ubuntu 11.04 and after an update 2 days ago, I have noticed that the icons in the notification area get pushed off screen. For example, if I open up a site in Firefox with a long title, the icons will be pushed away by the title and will not appear in the correct areas until I logout and back in. Also, if I use gnome-panel everything seems to be well but when the gnome panel is not displayed then the same problem is there.

OpenSUSE :: Disappearing Applications From - (windows Open And Minimized) Panel

Jul 29, 2010

I am running a week old 11.3 install with KDE (no desktop effects), compiz, nvidia. Last night I was working away. I had Thundertbird, Firefox, and VMWare Workstation open. Maybe something else, but I don't remember.

I was typing away. Maybe I hit something on the keyboard, but maybe not. All apps just disappeared, meaning that they're windows were not open and were not minimized to the panel. I could open *new* windows, and I fire up a terminal and ran top, which showed that they were all running, just not visible. Obviously, this is a Bad Thing.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Notification Area (top Panel) Not Working?

Dec 19, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.10.

I installed the Mac OS X Leopard theme. I didn't really like it so I decided to uninstall it and went to the default theme.

Now, whenever I try to minimize an application to the system tray, the notification area doesn't show any icons.

For example, I am running Tixati and I have set it up to hide it in the system tray when clicking the close button. Before installing the Mac theme, I had the Tixati icon on the top panel, where I could hover the pointer in order to check the download rate, or right-click it in order to configure it, but now, no icon is shown. I have added a new Notification Area applet but there is nothing shown there.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Amarok Or Rhythmbox Notification Area Icons After Upgrade To Lucid?

Apr 30, 2010

completed the first of my five pending Lucid upgrades a few hours ago, the upgrade progress went real smooth. SoI have been checking various apps to make sure they are working ok after the upgrade, and noticed that Amarok will not show its notification (tray) icon in the usual place after the upgrade. This is a pain because normally one would launch Amarok, select a playlist/album whatever, than close the window and skip tracks whatever using the tray icon. Did a bit of googling and found a bug in launchpad it's because Amarok draws a custom icon instead of passing a bitmap, or something, but cannot locate the bug again now. I then tested Rhythmbox and found the same issue.

Software :: Icon Not In "notification Area Icons"?

Jan 20, 2010

Have a piece of software I have to use for work, which I'd expect to minimise down to the icon notification area. The Linux version doesn't, but running the MS version via WINE it does this.I'm using Fedora 10 with Gnome desktop, the software is an enhanced chat client that is linked to the phone system called MXIE.It isn't really make r break, but I'd really like to be able to resolve it. Is there anything I could be doing to fix this? Or is it something that is in the rpm that I've installed? As an aside,n't know it it's important, but the Linux version had no icon, and I have to manually add this to my main menu icon list.

Red Hat :: Icons Not Displaying Properly And .pngs Not Loading - Centos 5.5?

Nov 29, 2010

I am running Centos 5.5 X86_64 and recently after updating my server, I am having problem loading gnome. When the server boots, and begins to bring up the login screen theme, I get an error that states "Could not recognize the image file format for /usr/share/gdm/themes/TreeFlower/background.png" I am able to login after clicking ok to this message, and using the "simplistic" login manager. But when the users desktop loads, there are several errors pertaining to "unsupported image format" and none of the icons are displaying correctly. They are just the default "curvy page" icon for an unassociated file type. Some of the icons do not even show up at all.

Another thing I noticed wierd is that when I try to view a png, nothing happens. When I try to open one using gimp, I get an "unsupported file type" error. When I tried to click on the "add/remove software" button I get prompted for root pass, but nothing happens. So, I tried launching pirut from CLI, and I received the following error:


[root@server ~]# pirut
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/pirut", line 41, in ?

Ubuntu :: Two Battery Icons In Panel?

Aug 17, 2010

I've recently installed 10.04 on my laptop and spent some time configuring it. A while ago I've noticed that there are now two battery icons in the panel in the top-right corner. One seems to be attached to the indicator applet and the other one sits by itself. Changing the settings in the Power Management menu affects both icons in the same way (I can either show or hide them both). Is there any way to remove the extra icon and just keep the one integrated into the indicator?

This is a very minor annoyance really, but it'd still be nice if there was a fix for it.

Update: Now the battery icon in the indicator applet has changed to the chat "evelope" icon, but it still acts as a battery icon (same menu). Something is definitely not right here...
