i stalled ubuntu 11.04 , i am following some tutorials in order to learn ubuntu. I noticed that the top menu is not visible in ubuntu 11.04. How to get it back. i found this article in internet. will this work [URL]
i am having a problem on Ubuntu 10.10. In system menu, there is no Administration or Preferences menu.Also, application menu does not show anything. I am using Ubuntu since 2 weeks and still not used to to the terminal commands for running applications and admin tools.
one more thing.When i booted my PC today it reported an error and process terminated before reaching the login window. So i restarted and chose recovery mode. it also reported some errors and tried to fix the problem. it deleted some files i think. and my system is working again but with above mentioned problem.
Ubuntu 10.04 I removed the Me Menu from the panel and then put it back (right click -> Add to Panel -> Indicator Applet Session). The Me Menu came back, but my name is not on the panel. When the Me Menu came back it was just a small blank on the panel next to the Power Button. There was no name, no icon, no nothing to tell me that was the Me Menu. In fact, I only accidentally found it when I happened to click in that blank space. I checked to see if there was any sort of Preferences setting for the Me Menu so I could get it to display my name for me to click on (like it did before), but could not see a setting like that. How can I make the Me Menu to be more visible than just a blank spot on the panel?
Applications working properly with SUDO only UBUNTU Noteboox 10.10 XUBUNTU I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick notebook version on my HP Compaq nc6400 (Intel core2 CPU T5600@1.83GHZ). Later installed Xfce4. So, I am now on Xubuntu on top of Ubuntu (it seems).Coming to my problem, even though application working fine normally, Menu is not displayed in most of the applications. Ex: Transmission, GIMP, Mousepad, Pinta, gedit ........ No application shows the file,edit.. menus.
Also file sharing is also not possible in normal mode. When I right click on any folder or file sharing option is not visible. But if I run these applications with SUDO the menus are appearing. When I open nautilus with SUDO , I am able to get sharing options in right click. I tried the below command as advised in thread.php?p=6474144 But it failed
Menu sometimes will stay visible on the desktop or on top of other windows after selecting them. To fix it I normally log out then log back in. Its been doing it for a few weeks. I install lots of eye candy/themes etc and have Avant, docky and cario-dock and think it be may some eye candy I installed, not sure. I have a ATI graphics card thats been tested by the distro.Using the latest 10.10 as I update security and recommended updates via update manager.
The problem I am facing is the left menu launch bar is not appearing when I startup my machine. The top and bottom menus appear after running gnome-panel in a terminal, but it does not fix the left had side launchbar.If i click in the area where the launch bar is I can start some applications, and sometimes the bar will flash ever so briefly.I am really excited to move away from Microsoft, but I wont be able to until this last piece of the puzzle is fixed.My system details are as follows:

I have a problem with eclipse and naultis and some other applications that the menu bar(File Edit View) is not visible. I actually bfore getting this issue I try to modify using gconf-editor and installed some themes for gnome.
I have a clean install of openSUSE 11.4 64 bit using gnome as the desktop manager. When selecting applications from the gnome menu, randomly the application will appear to not launch. However, if I click anywhere in left, upper portion of my desktop it becomes obvious that the application has launched and is not visible. For example, yast will not appear but clicking in that portion of my desktop causes various windows to appear that correspond to the different options in the yast home screen.
I have Opensuse 11.2 installed (on hd0 at the time of installation) To install Windows 7 alongside I had to switch my hard drives (hd0 became hd1 and vice versa) What is the best approach to reinstall grub and get both Opensuse and Win7 visible in the grub menu?
I'm trying to change the icon on my custom main menu on Ubuntu 10.10 doing this> sudo gconf-editor apps/panel/default_setup/objects/menu_bar.I gave object_type menu-object and custom_icon path as /home/ john/Pictures/menu.png then I checked use_custom_icon but with no luck (notice that I've succeed doing this in a virtual machine with the exact settings)Also I want to have icons on places and system, so I did thisdesktop/gnome/interface and clicked menus_have_icons.what I'm missing?
am new to this Linux world and a full time windows user. Now planning for a switch over and installed Debian into my PC as a parallel OS with windows.However, am facing the following problems after installing the os.
1. The menu bar is not visible, nor the application bar. I use Gnome and have attached a screen shot of what I see when logged in. 2. I am not able to play any movie files as it says that there are no drivers for that. 3. I do not see anything through which I can see the applications installed. 4. I am not able to access any drives of windows through this. It says access denied. 5. How do I log in as a root user?
I have used Puppy Linux before this and it was simplistic.
I have a folder on a fat32 partition that is mounted in both os's on my system.(Ubuntu 10.4 and Win 7) When I go to windows 7 the partion is mounted but I can not find the Music Folder on the drive. When i have it booted in linux I have access to the Music folder. The last change on my system I made was I ran edna-0.6 for a day so I could stream the contents of the folder. I need to figure out how to get access to these in windows again.

jpg files are not visible for upload. I only see the dir. trying to upload pictures to ebay. 9.10 and 10.4 are the same. I tried another sevice same thing happens. Can some one point me in the right direction.
I'm trying to switch from my legacy network configuration scripts (/etc/network/interfaces) to NetworkManager, but I haven't been able to start the nm-applet in Xfce. I'm running 10.04 with the latest updates. I have purged and reinstalled all NetworkManager related packages and still nothing.
If I start nm-applet from a console, I get the following output:
Code: adrianp@frost:~$ nm-applet Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display ":0.0". /home/adrianp/.themes/Murrina-Forsaken64/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:50: Murrine configuration option "scrollbar_color" is no longer supported and will be ignored.
I'm trying to format a Micro-SD card using Windows XP in Virtual Box. My problem is that nothing happens when I plug in the card. I've tried a card reader and my Android phone which should just mount it self as an SD-card. I can use my USB mouse, so I'm a bit confused. I'm using a Packard Bell Easynote Easynote MV35-Z.
I have a machine (Asus P4PE + 120GB SATA HDD) which has been running Karmic very successfully for a long time. I recently made the decision to upgrade to Lucid via the Update Manager. The upgrade seemed to go OK - no obvious errors - but the resulting version of Lucid had some weird problems: desktop messed-up, printers wouldnt work any more, etc. So I concluded I had been unlucky - the upgrade had gone wrong and I tried to install Lucid afresh from a CD.
Every time I try this, the install gets to the page to specify partitions but this page is blank. No partitions are visible. The buttons to create a partition, etc. are all greyed-out. I have tried various boot options like removing quiet splash, setting noapic/nolapic, etc. but nothing seems to work. I can happily run Lucid from the CD, no problem. I have also checked I have not got RAID accidentally installed, as mentioned elsewhere on this forum.
I am able to reinstall Karmic so I know theres a filesystem there but the Lucid installer cannot see it. Any suggestions on how to proceed very welcome!
At the moment my only option seems to be to regress to Karmic.
I made a media station with XBMC and this is working just fine. Now I have an internal hard disk NTFS formatted loaded with multimedia stuff. I would like to appear the disk as directory in my home. Example: /home/xbmc/multimedia where multimedia redirects to the root of the NTFS disk. Is this possible?
I recently downloaded ubuntu netbook 10.10 and there is no icons showing on the desktop. When i go into my files and folders and look in the desktop folder there are numerous items and folders in there. also, when i log into the desktop edition the items show up on the desktop.
I just installed Banshee v1.80 on Ubuntu 10.10 and was looking to import my music from my external HD. I pluged the HD in and copied all of the music in it to my music folder, (ALL 2,604 SONGS).I then went into banshee and set the folder for my music library to be /home/matt/Music, where i put THE 2,604 SONGS.Banshee started to scan the songs, all the way up through THE 2,604th. After it was finished i navigated to all music in the banshee side pane and there was only 394.
After some research i found that this was because only 394 of the songs actually had .mp3 or a similar extension at the end of the file name.I've spent the past hour trying to figure out how to either append the appropriate extension to all the files, or how to get banshee to see the files without any extension, to no avail.
I've been searching around the internet for the last two days trying to solve this problem, because I know how much everyone hates people who ask questions without looking first. Alas, I haven't found anything.
I have Ubuntu Server 11.04 running on a spare machine, which I've configured and got running just fine. I am trying to set up an IRC server on this machine for some friends of mine using UnrealIRCd. I have built and configured the server program, and am able to run it. Anyone who is connected to my home router (wirelessly or hard-wired) can connect to the server while it is up using either the internal IP, external (router) IP, or the dyndns.org name which is tied to the external IP.
However, anyone outside my home network cannot connect to the server. I DO have ports 6660-6669 forwarded on my router (IRC standard port is 6667). When connected to an external network, I cannot join the server by using the external IP, nor the DNS name.
I also have OpenSSH set up on the server machine, and have port 22 forwarded on my router. I CAN ssh into my server machine from within my home network, and I CAN ssh into my server machine from an external network.
Strangely, I can successfully ping my DNS name from inside my network, but not from outside. This doesn't make sense to me considering I am able to successfully ssh into the machine.
I have tried to get familiar with ubuntu and kubuntu few times. With kubuntu I had multi-display problem which I couldn't solve myself. Then I changed to ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10. I did not have multi-display problem but wireless network problem which I could not solve myself either.I try once more with ubuntu 11.04 but now I try to use your help to progress to avoid many days and evenings wasted time.So again I have problem to connect to wireless network.
- I can see wireless access points - When I try to connect one of them after entering router password after a moment I get error to not able to connect and I am asked the password again. (WPA & WPA2) - Wired network works ok. - Router is Buffalo WBMR-G125 - Wireless USB adapter is Buffalo WLI-UC-G300n - Computer is self made PC with Asus M4 motherboard
I recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 on a USB stick, using the Universal USB installer. I managed to boot from USB but one of the problems seems that the new launch manager, I think it's part of unity, is not visible. I tried pushing the mouse pointer to the left edge of the screen but the launcher does not appear.
I did go into system settings -> Launcher and Menus and all seems fine.
I am a competent Linux user for a little over a couple years now, having run several versions of Fedora, Mint, Xubuntu, and others for about a month before settling on The Ubuntu Netbook Remix when it was version 9.10. Loved it. Used it as long as I could until I was informed that my version could no longer be supported. So I went to 10.04, and used that for a while... but didn't know at the time that I could switch between desktop environments... and it stuck me with the classic view. This was OK, but I'm using an Asus Netbook (1005PE)... And sorely missed the Netbook UI.
So I went and upgraded to Version 10.10. Mutter was a MESS. It was so choppy and unpredictable I only used it a few times before getting frustrated and switching back to the classic compiz UI.
But I still like the idea behind the UI, so I downloaded and ran the 11.04 version live off a flash drive (I LOVE that ability!)... and Unity worked fine. I actually liked it. So I upgraded to version 11 and booted up to find that Unity is not visible.
I can log in to the classic view just fine... But logging in under Unity will display the background and provide seemingly full functionality (If I know where to click!), but I can't actually see the UI until I click an invisible button. Once I do that, the program or menu alone becomes visible, and works fine. I just can't see Unity.
