Thread: More gnome issues....Gnome Panel

    Default More gnome issues....Gnome Panel

    Alright, i never had as many issues with 11.0 BUT im willing to sort them all out and learn from this.

    Right now, im trying to move my gnome panel to the top of the screen ( like mac instead of windows ) even tho i click allow panel to be moved, it doesnt work. it just stays there, and the option in preferences is still grayed out. I have compiz fusion installed and im preventing nautilus from drawing to the desktop but i doubt thats messing with it. any help would be awesome. thanks.

    Ok. Another issue and this ones a killer. I restarted comp and now a new unknown process appears and leaves and reappears and does that over and over until it freezes the comp. I went into failsafe and after I got done with editing the panel and restarted I got a msg saying a process was still running after I tried to kill it I had to do a hard reset. I'm posting this from my bb storm...lol. Help please?

    Hi
    For the first one, sometimes you need to select lock/unlock the panel
    to move it. Else it may have been accidentally locked by some policy,
    run up the gconf-editor and browse to apps->panel->global.

    The second one may be beagle or packgekit, open up control center ->
    system -> sessions and unckeck the boxes and logout/login again. Does
    the issue still happen?

    Found out what the issue was.....

    First, i went into gconf, and i had to hardset the panel to top ( from bottom ). So after i got that out of the way, i istarted to backtraced all the changed i had done to the system. When i enabled nautilus to write to the desktop ( IE show_desktop set to true ) the linux "hourglass" went away and my comp started working again. HOWEVER, this was the only way to get gnome working properly with the Wallpaper addon from compiz, unless there is a workaround? anyone has any kind of ideas as to what to do? i always liked having 4 diff wallpapers for my 4 diff desktops.

    background (for four desktops) soothing..

    I appreciate your answer, but I'm used to having 4 backgrounds in my desktops with compiz under gnome, it worked fine in 11.0 ( By editing a few settings in gconf ) i dont see why it wouldn't in 11.1, I understand diff versions of gnome, and compiz ( etc ) but still. I don't find it soothing but a pain rather because with different backgrounds are easier to identify which desktop I am on. Im still googling fixes, or patches but i cant find anything. So if anyone has anything please help me. Thank you again.
