I installed Xubuntu 10.10, fresh i don't configure or installed another program, i only installed nvidia drivers (I have a Geforce 9600 GT video card). The entire operating system, and xfce 4.6 was working fine. After, I make an upgrade to xfce 4.8, and when i loged on, everything loaded ok: xfce 4.8 version is working fine, the panels loaded and i can add items. But there is a problem:My wallpaper image doesn't appear on desktop (only brown solid color), it doesn't show icons, i can't change wallaper in configuration panel (i can add an image but it does not appear in desktop), when I plug in
everyone! this is my first thread! i've got a problem:i have ubuntu with xfce 4.8 and compiz as a compositing software.strangely,after the update to xfce 4.8 the shadows of my panels dissappeared.i tried a lot but couldnt find the problem.how can i reenable the shadows???
I don't think that the regular 10.10 or 10.04 repos have XFCE 4.8, so I was wondering if anyone has any information on a PPA for XFCE 4.8 or that. If you could let me know, that'd be great.
I want to install xfce 4.8 on an amd64 box running 10.04. There is a ppa (https://launchpad.net/~alexx2000/+archive/xfce) which has the only the 32 bit packages so I thought I'd build it from the deb-src packages supplied in the ppa.When I try to build one of the packages sudo apt-get --build source garcon I get the error:make: Entering directory `/home/glenn/garcon-0.1.5/garcon'CC libgarcon_1_la-garcon-config.lo/bin/bash ../libtool --silent --tag=CC --mode=compile gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I.. -I.. -DGARCON_COMPILATION -DGARCON_VERSION_API=\"1\" -DG_LOG_DOMAIN=\"garcon\"
This is driving me a little batty. I don't know if this is a quirk of XFCE 4.8 or not but I can't get all my folders to look the same. Some are the generic Gnome icons and seem to want to stay that way. :Pedit: I tried installing the icons in both .icons and /usr/share/icons.sorry if this has been asked before. I looked.
After searching the web and this forum, I found plenty of options for Ubuntu/Kubuntu with Gnome/KDE, but I could not find a solution for Xubuntu/Xfce.My problem:On an old Packard Bell laptop, both the hibernate and suspend options generate freezes and hard resets. As I am setting this laptop up for a new Linux user with hardly any computer experience, it would be nice to disable/hide these options to avoid frustration and computer avoidance.Thus, is there anyway to disable or hide suspend and hibernate on Xubuntu 11.04 / Xfce 4.8.0? I tried this (found on web):xfconf-query -c xfce4-session -np
I installed XFCE 4.8, but have problems with the directory icon themes in Thunar. I'm using a home-made theme, that worked well in earlier versions of Thunar. In the new version, it uses the proper icons, except for the directories, which revert to the default Gnome icon theme. This is the case for all normal directory icons (desktop and home show up properly), in all sizes. The icon theme works fine in Nautilus and PCManFM. Why is Thunar not recognising them?
in xfce 4.8 ubuntu 11.10s XFCE work space setting does not work. i am stuck with 1 work space, and a flat 2d cube in compiz. xfce displays a 4 desktop panel with this 1 work space, and its a 2x2 design that its locked into.... xfce 4.6 works fine under ubuntu 10.10 in this aspect.... help plz
Since the event of xfce 4.8, different distributions have decided to implement this most recent version of the desktop environment flavor to their distribution. It would be interesting to compare xubuntu with other distribution inplementing the xfce 4.8 version. No distribution could be perfect, but what would be the best balanced one?Given your experience since the outing of xubuntu on 10.04 with xfce 4.8 what is your opinion in terms of xubuntu for the following criteria?1) fast bootup speed (like slackware and its derivative)2) the possibility of passing thru login manager directly into the
I have installed xubuntu 11.04 with xfce 4.8 on a 8 gig usb key. My intent is to use such a key as a pocket system wherever I would go. I would like to boot up to desktop without passing thru the live disk menu.I can see that the media:/sdc1/syslinux/txt.cfg or /media/disk/syslinux/dtmenu.cfg are some of the config file for the menu of the livecd. How could I modify such a file so to boot up to desktop without passing thru the live disk menu? Thus saving precious time at each bootup.
I have been using xfce 4.8 xubuntu 11.04 and been quite pleased by the appearances and possibilities of the desktop environment. However, I am annoyed by the fact that windows are restricted by the space occupied by panels. As one can play with the enter and leave opacity (transparency) of the panels, I wonder why the opened windows could not go over or under the panels.I have been looking around (googling and specific forums search) and found no instructions to resolve the problem. Is there any strategy to permit overlapping of windows and panels?
I'm totally new to Ubuntu, so take my comments with a grain of salt. I might just well have no clue what I am doing :>)First a couple MythTV issues without the propietray ATI driver installed.(1) During the installation process I goofed some stuff up when defining cards (I have a PVR-150 and an HDhomerun), so I deleted them and recreated them. When I view the Information screen in MythTV my cards are numbered 3 and 4 respectively. It seems that deleting a card definition does not recalibrate the card numbering. I wonder if this might not cause MythTV to think it has 4 cards installed.(2) Wh

One again I write here bcs I have a problem with my xbuntu. I use 285.05.09 Nvidia driver and XCFE 4.8 I guest. Sometime or should I say often I have restart XCFE - automatically without any command. When I check log, sys.log, message.log and search any error or failed I don't see anything at the time when I had XFCE crash. Where can I check or what can I do to fix this ?Best
I've run into this bug that I don't know how it happened, quite. I ran my installed 4.8 on Ubuntu 11.04 a few days ago, and it the Applications Menu worked fine. Then, I wanted to add an application to it (The Ubuntu Software Center) so I opened up its settings and edited it with what I think to be alacarte. Then when I click the menu to check it, a simple tab appears over it and says "no applications found". This was rather confusing, so I looked in the ~/.config/menus/ folder and opened up the xfce-applications.menu file. This is what it says:<!DOCTYPE MenuPUBLIC '-//freedesktop
O.K. I manage to install Ubuntu 8.10 and the ATI Readon HD 2400 pro PCI-E driver yesterday and it worked because I have compiz installed but after I updated my system with all the package updates, I restarted my system and my ATI Driver was disabled!

Went to test my new install by going into the game 'nexius'It was a bit choppy, so I selected a lower resolution in the game, then it crashed, and reverted me back to the open source driver.So then I tried to re-install the ATI driver, would not install, so I went into restricted driver manager, and unselected the restricted driver, re-booted like it asked.I wanted to re-enable it when I booted back up.But, I put in my log on info, then it crashes right back to the log-on screen again.Is their not some command I can put into the recovery mode, like reconfigure 'X' or re-enable the driver or so

I just installed the prerelease of the new XFCE. At long last, it has panel transparency with solid icons!Anyone else using it? Attached is a screenshot of my desktop.
Oops, I do apoligize. I don't know how I posted a double. Just delete it, and I do apoligize.
In the Power Management settings I have it so the monitor turns off after 15 minutes, but it never turns off. I think the issue is the screen saver. If I disable the screen saver the monitor turns off fine, but when the screen saver is enabled it just stays on the screen saver forever and the monitor never turns off. Any ideas on how to fix this without disabling the screen saver?EDIT: I am running Xubuntu 11.04.
I have installed the Xubuntu Beta 1 and I am having an issue where if I select Log Out from the menu and then select Shutdown from the dialog box it just logs me out. If I select it from the panel it works fine, but I want to remove this from the panel and just use the menu. Does anyone else have this problem, or know how to fix it?

gang, I just upgraded from lucid 10.04.2 to natty and it went okay except for 1 problem. My xfce4-panel would only list a few plugins even though I installed almost every plugin in synaptic. I tried purging everything related to xfce4/xubuntu and reinstalling it, and also removed the ~/.config/xfce4 and .cache/xfce4 dirs. What else can I try to get the plugins to work? I really like using the verve, cpu governor/freq, cpu monitor, and notes plugin.
Does the latest ATI driver have issues with playing video files? I ask because ever since I loaded up Hardy and installed the 8-3 ATI driver with Envy, I am unable to properly play any video file. What happens is when said video file opens, it begins to play properly for about half a second, then the picture disappears and all I have is sound with a black window. A friend of mine who has almost the exact same laptop as me is having the same issue (I also set up their laptop with Ubuntu and Envy the same way)However, I have done some experimenting and I managed to install Ubuntu hardy on a mach

So i have an ASUS f3ka w/ ati radeon 2600hd using the new ATI driver (8.4) and divx playback is horrible! its REALLY pixelated, and it gets worse when you go full screen. The only program which does not do this is mplayer. I dont know why that is but it seems to playback and resize without the pixel issue. The problem is that i cant really use mplayer with compiz enabled. (ati drivers cause flickering in opengl windows, and if i use the x11 option it will not go full screen.) what the heck is all of this about? is there any program that i can run which uses proper divx drivers and can go fulls
I did some searching and could not find any definitive answers on how to install xfce 4.6 in ubuntu 8.10. Right now I'm running 4.4.3 and would like to upgrade, but can't upgrade to Jaunty because the newer version of xorg breaks compatibility with my ati drivers.I'm fairly new to ubuntu and the deb package system, so any help on how to install 4.6 is appreciated.

Hay I have a problem with upgrading to Ubuntu 8.04. I am now using Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper). The problem is I don't get the DVI working for my ATI RADEON 9100 IGP. Under 6.06 I used the fglrx driver installed with ati-driver-installer-8.24.8-x86.run (I also had problems with the ati-driver-installer-8.28.8.run).I understand that ATI does not support the driver anymore so I have to use the open source driver. I followed the instruction from this page https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriverBut so far no luck...as soon as the login window should come up I get a black screen. In the xorg.conf i

Can a mod please update the thread title to 8.4.2? I'm not sure how I came up with 8.2.3This is a brief guide for anyone who already has Compiz Fusion working with ATi and XGL.

I should note that right now I am *not* impressed with the performance so far - it's noticably slower and choppier, however I no longer have XGL sucking down 40% of my CPU when I rotate screens.EDIT: Be warned that a number of people (link) (http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5947&page=16) are experiencin

This is the first time I've posted up here although I come here sometimes to find info etc. I've recently upgraded my pc and also gone from 10.2 to 10.3 of OpenSuse, I've also switched from nvidia to ati for my graphics card, running a 2600 Radeon at the moment.
