Ubuntu can’t resize desktop resolutions on it’s own?

gordan-vrbanec-vepar

Why is this still an issue?

I’m not trying to be and a-hole, i genuinely want to know. Windows did this since 95, and yet ubuntu doesn’t change it automatically when plugging in a lower resolution monitor. It just goes to sleep and the system is inaccessible.
So why can’t ubuntu and variants resize the desktop resolution accordingly? Is there a reason for this? Does it have to do with the kernel or desktop enviroment?

Last night i installed lubuntu on my 1920×1080 monitor, set it up for baisc internet and office work and gave it to my mom to bring to work. They of course don’t have large monitors there so they can’t boot up the system.
Or rather it boots up, it’s just too high resolution for the monitor to display. And of course it has to be something urgent for them to do, and now the computer is out of my reach and i can’t fix it.

Can i fix it at all? Even if i was there? Besides bringing it home and hooking it up to my resolution then manually setting a lower one? I probably should have done that in the first place, but i didn’t know that i have to do that in 2016 on a modern OS…
Can i tell them what to do over the phone? Bear in mind, these are not computer savy people so i don’t think any amount of console commands i tell them will be understood or done.

Lubuntu version 15.10 is installed…

I mean, why, just why? It doesn’t seem to be that big of a problem to do in the kernel… Or does this entirely have to do with the desktop enviroment?

So, any help would be apreciated, if possible “urgent” (not that anything’ll be fixed today as it seems) but whatever.
Also, if anyone can explain to me why linux can’t adjust the resolution according to the monitor, that would be great. Is it distro related so i can avoid a particular distro (like lubuntu) in the future? I only installed lubuntu because it’s an older computer and lubuntu worked great there. Better than XP and 7 which were previously installed there…

I don’t know, but maybe it could be the X11 display server’s fault? She’s getting long in the tooth, and that’s why Wayland and Mir are being developed.

gordan-vrbanec-vepar

So basically, i need to get the computer back to my monitor and set the resolution manually then? :/

And you’re right, it’s probably the X11 display server… I totally forgot about that.
Idk, it’s kinda weird for a modern OS to even have this problem. That’s one of the things that it’s keeping linux from being used more i think. I mean i love it, it’s just that, i can understand why people don’t want to deal with basic stuff like that in an overly complicated manner…

Because now, if i were to try to change the resolution on another monitor i’d probably need to get into grub and set some boot options or whatever. Now how do i explain that to people? Especially ones that just want a system that works.

Anyway, thanks for the insight. I’ll read up on Wayland and Mir, i hope they do a better job than X11 (which is i gues we can safely say – outdated at this point)…

I’m still open to suggestions as to what to do in this particular situation…

There’s a “Monitor Settings” entry in the menu (Preferences->Monitor Settings”) that may help. Lubuntu is sparse in terms of niceties.

Much depends on the video card and the actual display. LCD displays have a single, fixed, optimal resolution.

gordan-vrbanec-vepar

Yeah, that would be great if they could see the desktop at all. The monitor went to sleep immediately after X was loaded apparently… There were some screen flickers here and there before but then it went to sleep. I know how to set the resolution when i’m on the desktop, it’s just that, there is no desktop, all blank, and the monitor is sleeping.

Anyway, i just talked to them on the phone. I figured, it’s probably loaded and stuck at login screen so i told them to write the password and hit enter. Nothing happened (or so they thought) so i told them to reset the computer.
And it kinda worked. It probably booted into desktop, then it recognised the resolution from there, and after a reset, everything was normal. Weird that it didn’t automatically change it when it got to the desktop, or even before, at the login screen but it seems to be working now.

It still bugs me that this is even a thing on a modern os. I know this is lubuntu and it’s very minimalistic and whatever, but it runs on a same kernel as Ubuntu and all it’s variants. Had i done this in the newest Ubuntu, it would be the same. Because i had this problem before. I don’t understand how a persistent live USB can work on any resolution, splash, login and all, but as soon as you install it it suddenly can’t change resolutions anymore. Maybe i’m wrong, maybe it’s just lubuntu’s problem, maybe Ubuntu works just fine switching to a monitor’s resolution, but still, this is not the first time i saw this issue, and i can’t believe it’s still and issue today…

Oh well… It’s “fixed” so i’ll change the title to solved. I’d still welcome some discussion on what exactly is causing this behaviour, i’m interested in hearing what the problem is…

increase delay time for panel minimization in “Automatic Hiding”, Lubuntu 15.10

anotherChris

I prefer to use “Automatic hiding” in Lubuntu’s Panel Preferences to automatically minimize the panel when it’s not in use. However, this is causing me some problems (see below* for details if you want…). Question: Can someone tell me how to increase the delay time in Automatic hiding between when the cursor leaves the Panel and when the Panel minimizes? I’ve Googled it, but can’t find an answer. Thank you!!

* Long explanation of problem:
I frequently have to re-connect my wi-fi. I use free wi-fi from my landlady, but for some reason it frequently drops my connection (about once or twice an hour). To resolve, I have to go down to the wi-fi icon of the Indicator Applets in my desktop panel and then scroll/browse up the menu to my wi-fi connection and select it, which automatically disconnects and re-connects it. HOWEVER, when Automatic hiding is on, there is not enough time between when my cursor stops hovering over the wi-fi icon and when it reaches my wi-fi connection in the menu: before I can select my wi-fi connection from the menu, the panel minimizes, which closes the menu. As a result, about once or twice an hour, I have to go into Panel Preferences, turn off Automatic hiding, re-connect my wi-fi, then turn on Automatic Hiding again and leave Panel Preferences. This is a pretty big annoyance, and seems like it should work better.

Nobody has an idea? Really? Is the question too complicated? I just want to know how to make the panel persist longer before it minimizes when “Automatic hiding” is turned on…

Thanks.

You can’t blame the question (or yourself). I think your usage is something the developers of lxpanel haven’t considered or provided a visible option for.

It’s possible some other panel may such an option.

For example, tint2 has the following:
# Panel Autohide
autohide = 0
autohide_show_timeout = 0.3
autohide_hide_timeout = 2
autohide_height = 2
strut_policy = follow_sizewhich seems to imply users can fiddle with values.

I looked at lxpanel’s options when I first saw your question but didn’t find anything like that. So I kept quiet πŸ˜‰

Plus, I’m still on Lubuntu 14.04 and wouldn’t know if your later version of Lubuntu has what you are looking for (and I don’t use lxpanel or autohide).

Edit: I don’t know what your usage is or why you need the autohide feature. Even though I have a small screen (laptop, 15.6″) I dedicate a few pixels (40 px or so) at the top of my screen to conky and tint2. What does your screen look like?

For some reason, when I’m using programs, the windows frequently get stuck with the bottom margin/corners stuck behind the panel. Then I can’t resize them unless I can get the panel minimized, so I just keep it on Auto-hide… except right now, I’m not using Auto-hiding. Here’s my desktop. It’s pretty sparse. My meatspace desk looks the same… (well, no stars, but you know what I mean…)

Could try using the resize option in the window title bar menu. Right click on the title bar or click the window menu button to get to it.

anotherChris

That’s cool, I didn’t know about the resize function. However, I used it once, and now it’s broken… Here’s what I did…

(1) Usually, I use the Un/Decorate function on windows. So…
(2) I right-clicked on the window border and selected “Use system title and borders” in order to get the window border back.
(3) Right-clicked on window border and selected Resize.
(4) Resized
(5) Selected Un/Decorate again… Uh-oh!! Now I don’t have the window controls in the upper right corner as usual
(6) Right-clicked on window border again… Double Uh-oh!!!! Now selecting “Use system title and borders” only restores the window controls, not the system border… (see photo)

so that…
(7)…if I Right-click on the window border again, it only lets me shut off the system title and borders (see photo)
267093

I can fix this problem if I stop and re-start the program, but that’s not a good fix for resizing while typing web comments, or using LirbreOffice or GIMP.

howefield

Not sure if it works in Lubuntu but using the Alt + F8 keys works in Ubuntu as a shortcut key to resizing the window, give that a go.

If it doesn’t work, there likely is a keyboard shortcut, just need to find out what it is. πŸ™‚

By the way, here’s a super-nerdy joke…

vasa1, your signature ought to be written, “de gustibus et coloribus non disputandum est”.

Get it? Not funny? Well, I tried…

If it doesn’t work, there likely is a keyboard shortcut, just need to find out what it is. πŸ™‚

Okay, in Lubuntu 15.10, it’s Alt + space bar and then select “Z”.
Then you get a resizing cursor icon.
Hold down the left click button and move your mouse/trackpad.
If anyone wants to try this, the key is to put the cursor at the opposite end of the screen from where you want to move to before you use the keyboard shortcuts. For example, say my window somehow got resized off the edge of my screen to the right, I will put my cursor on the right-hand side of the screen so that I can move it to the left. If you wait to put the cursor in place after you use the keyboard shortcuts, you can accidentally resize your window in a way you didn’t intend…

vasa1

Your rc.xml and mine are the same. So nothing to say.

Re. lxpanel,
you have both
align=center
allign=left

I have just “allign=left”

I’m not sure that’s a good thing but I don’t think that that’s responsible for the issue you described in the first post here.

In short, I’m out of ideas, never having faced such a problem myself. Plus, I don’t use lxpanel except on rare occasions.

anotherChris

In short, I’m out of ideas…

Well, thank you for giving it a shot. I have a question about the attribute called hideDelay…

Do you have any idea what that does? Should I try changing it?

No idea, but there’s no harm in trying but please backup your lubuntu-rc.xml first.

And just in case, you don’t know, after you edit lubuntu-rc.xml, it’s advisable to run openbox –reconfigure in a terminal. Doing so has two purposes: it tells Openbox to start using the modified lubuntu-rc.xml and it also “parses” the file to check for errors.

anotherChris

I tried modifying the hideDelay settings and showDelay settings. Set to 5000 milliseconds, the panel had the same persistence as set to 300 milliseconds.

I don’t know what these settings are for, but I noticed that there is another that has autohiding set to “no”, even though I have it turned on. Don’t know what that’s about.

Mirk0

Forgive me for reopening this discussion after several months because the problem became bigger.

Lubuntu 16.04 has the same problem and it is bigger because this is an LTS version, as you know. The automatic hiding doesn’t give enough time to interact with some menus, like the one for the Wi-Fi connection.

I guess the automatic hiding time is an intrinsic property of LXPanel and it cannot be modified in /home//.config/lxpanel/Lubuntu/panels/panel.

jothro

I’m having a similar problem, but kinda reverted. I wanted to made an Unity-like auto-hiding launch-bar on the left side of my monitor, but often when I quickly move my mouse over to the side (e.g. when using the back button in Firefox) I accidentally un-hide the panel and launch a random program, which is very annoying.

So it would be very nice to be able to customize the hide- and show-delay, because there are many different reasons one would like to have that option, as shown in this thread. I think it should be considered for the successor LXQT-Panel, at least.

Cannot Search For Files In Gnome-Shell Overview 16.04

daveandclaire75

Hi
I have come back to Ubuntu Gnome 16.04 and am enjoying it.
My only query is that I cannot seem to complete a search of my files from the Gnome-Shell Overview Screen.
I am sure I could do this in older versions by simply typing in the search term, and it would then return the folders that I could then access.

Example would be – Enter term such as Amy Winehouse.
My folder with Amy Winehouse would then be displayed.

Appreciate any help regarding how I can (or indeed confirmation that I cannot) enable this feature.

Many thanks
——
tea for one

I don’t remember being able to search user files and folders from Gnome-Shell Overview previously but, nevertheless, the search feature in Files (nautilus) is improved.

Open Files and you will see Q at the top of the window.

Click on it and search for Amy, I reckon that she will be there.

You can also search for individual files as well as folders.

Kind regards

daveandclaire75

Thanks for that tea for one! She is indeed. You are right, the search in Nautilus is excellent.
Since posting I did some more digging and I believe I had been using an old extension previously.

Adding Unity desktop

What pakage/s did you install ?

ajgreeny

You need to run command
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktopthough there may be other ways which give you unity without all the ubuntu packages.
I will search a bit more on your behalf to see what I can find as it could be useful to me as well.

That will be interesting πŸ™‚

But assuming OP has successfully installed ubuntu-desktop, it should show up as a dropdown at the time of login if OP clicks the correct icon. Otherwise, the previous session is used by default.

Well, you would need the ‘depends’ dependencies for sure I would expect.

One could choose from the ‘recommended’ packages as one would want, I suppose. Remember, the recommended packages are recommend for a reason. Unless one ‘knows’ they do not need some/all recommends, probably best to install those too.

The ‘suggests’ packages are just that. Only suggested, and one has more ‘latitude’ here, in having a well working desktop without them.

See: http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/ubuntu-desktop

Commands to run to see the differences. *Note, only enter ‘Y’ if what is downloaded is wanted to be installed. Hit ‘N” after looking but choosing to not download:

Compare these:

sudo apt-get –install-recommends install ubuntu-desktop

and

sudo apt-get install –no-install-recommends ubuntu-desktop

and

sudo apt-get install –no-install-suggested ubuntu-desktop

Here is what I get I ‘try’ those commands on my Xubuntu ‘Xenial’ desktop with those commands:

oops – on the only other machine I’ve used with Unity on it the log-in box had the desktop-switcher as an option on the log-in box! I’ve just found the button on the top panel and all is ok now
Thanks for your help!

Add search option in lubuntu main menu

pranish

The default main menu that lubuntu provides doesn’t have an application search option which is terrible. I have installed cairo dock but it consumes 100+ MB RAM. Tried synaptic and xfce whisker menu but doesn’t work properly. Please suggest me how to add a search option in the main menu. xubuntu’s and mate’s main menus would be prefered.

Thank you

Have you considered just installing Xubuntu? I find that the search field works fine.

What exactly do you mean by “an application search option”? Can you not find an application you’ve installed from the menu tree? What is your actual difficulty? Are you trying to find software you’ve installed without using the software center or apt-get?

As for synapse (not synaptic), I’m not sure it’s being developed any more. At least it’s not available in 14.04’s software center.

If you like the main menus of some other distro, just install that particular distro. Mixing-n-matching may turn out to be non-optimal.

And if you want to conserve RAM, there’s always dmenu (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dmenu) πŸ™‚

Is your present question related to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2317759 ? It’s always better to provide some context so that people can help you effectively rather than having to guess what the issue is πŸ™‚

Dennis N

A file search is done from the PCManFM file manager from it’s tools menu. You can also install a dedicated search tool like Catfish. I think the LXDE developers want to keep their desktop environment lightweight, so some judgment calls have to be made on more added features that duplicate what can already be done. There is no end to the “add more features” path.

vasa1

Well, the good thing about this thread is that it made me look at dmenu once again πŸ™‚

I’ll be able to free up quite a few keyboard shortcuts that were otherwise tied up to launch apps:

dmenu_run -b -nb ‘#222222’ -nf ‘#888888’ -sb ‘#090834’ -sf ‘#aaaaaa’ -fn ‘-adobe-courier-medium-r-normal–0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1’

Dennis N

Yes, good ideas and advice here. dmenu I have never heard of before now. I’m not much into keyboard shortcuts except basic things like copy, paste, and save, and the single-key shortcuts for audacious control which I find very useful.

vasa1

… dmenu I have never heard of before now. …
I hang around the BunsenLabs forum (related to Crunchbang) because they use Openbox and they mention dmenu quite a bit.

Anyway, here’s a link (http://akuederle.com/awesome-dmenu) and a quote from there:
If you are using any modern Linux Distro, it has probably some kind of application launcher already included. To name a few, GNOME Do, Synapse, or xfce4-appfinder all work the same way. You press a button, the launcher appears, and you can quickly select a application to launch by typing its initial letters. In its default configuration Dmenu works no different; however, it can be used to make a quick selection from any given list and not just the default list of applications. Therefore, Dmenu is practical as a custom launcher for nearly everything and even as a way to get a user input for a bash or python script.
I’ll eventually look at the part in bold text because that’s what I use Kupfer for.

Gray desktop after usual upgrade in Xubuntu 14.04

atipico

After an update a couple of days ago, my desktop is gone and a gray screen is now in it’s place. No usual icons and if I try to click with the right mouse button nothing happens. However, the top menu is functional. Following a tip, I installed the last “xfdesktop” version, just as bellow:

xfdesktop –version
This is xfdesktop version 4.12.2, running on Xfce 4.12.
Built with GTK+ 2.24.23, linked with GTK+ 2.24.23.
Build options:
Desktop Menu: enabled
Desktop Icons: enabled
Desktop File Icons: enabled

My OS details:

lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS
Release: 14.04
Codename: trusty

uname -a
Linux atpc 4.2.0-42-generic #49~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jun 29 20:22:11 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Any light? Thanks a lot.

What happens if you run these commands in a Terminal?

This one makes sure xfdesktop isn’t running

xfdesktop –quit

and this one tries to start xfdesktop

xfdesktop –disable-wm-check

atipico

Well it comes back just fine. however, when I restart it turns gray again…

atipico

Although the problem persisted after the restart, it seems that after the last Xubuntu base new upgrade the bug was solved. Thank you.

ZBOX-ID84 lockup/slowdown/non-responsive, losing memory?

yonnie

I installed this ZBOX, put wine on it and am running a server in client mode and connecting via VPN to the server. This has been running fairly well for about a year until some updates a few months ago. The unit was installed with 2GB of ram, a 300GB WDC sata drive (I know, complete overkill). OS version Linux 3.13.0-77-generic, KDE SC version 4.13.2 (Your basic Kubuntu 14.04LTS).

I discovered in the Kinfo center there would be 3-400 MB free and no usage of swap space. After unit had been running for awhile (few hours) I noticed the free memory is dropping down to none. Then I see the problem. I replaced the 2GB of ram with 4GB. Now the system doesn’t seem to lockup anymore. However, the swap space is still not being used or not reporting properly and the free memory starts out around 1.5GB and slowly gets smaller. Unit has been running for about 4 days and present free memory is about 300MB. Free swap is at 99%. It looks to me that this unit does not make use of Swap and it is not properly handling physical memory. I just did a reboot to see where the physical memory used amount starts out at. It starts out at 1.6GB of free physical space

6 hours later the free memory is down to 1.2GB

A day later and it’s down to 800MB

14 hours later it’s down to 520MB

Closed the vpn tunnel, closed the server app, closed FF, ran updates, re-opened the previous apps. Free Memory now at 628MB

Desktop icons gone and topbar icons shifted left

hvn2

Hi,

When using a program with CD, the whole system suddenly froze. I could do nothing else but press the power and restart (and remove the cd). Now, My desktop is now empty except for trashbin, personal map and filesystem. Also, all icons that were at the right-side of the top menu bar, are suddenly at the left-side. I can access application via the menu, and when I start applications, the top menu bar icons, shift to the right along with any application notification. I looked in .config/xfce4/desktop/icons….. and all looks ok. Can somebody please tell me what may have happened to my desktop and how I may restore it?

Thanks!

hvn

Which version of Xubuntu?

Let’s see the content of your .config/xfce4/desktop/icons….. file (in code-tags please; see my signature below for a how-to)

Finally let’s see the output of command
ls -l Desktop

hvn2

Which version of Xubuntu?
Xubuntu 14.04

Let’s see the content of your .config/xfce4/desktop/icons….. file (in code-tags please; see my signature below for a how-to)

[xfdesktop-version-4.10.3+-rcfile_format]
4.10.3+=true

[Prullenbak]
row=1
col=0

[/]
row=2
col=0

[/home/huub]
row=6
col=0

Finally let’s see the output of command
ls -l Desktop
In Dutch:
ls -l Bureaublad/
totaal 0

Something seems to be wrong…

ajgreeny

Well at least that shows why there are no launcher icons on your desktop; there are no .desktop files in your Desktop folder, hence nothing there to show. The question remains, however, ie, where did they go and what deleted them? I can only assume the freeze and hard shutdown has corrupted and/or lost those files.

Similarly the icons…. file in xfce4’s config folder does not show any of the expected entries for those launcher icons.

Do you have a backup of all your /home?

Odd plasma lockups Kubuntu 15.10

courtney2

Anyone having plasma shell lockup after specific events? If I try to open a file in Kate and sometimes after I right click a file in Dolphin or open Krunner the desktop will totally freeze for about 30 seconds. I can move my mouse around but the desktop is completely locked and keyboard and mouse click input isn’t initiated until after the freeze. Would this be an xorg issue? I don’t know of a way to determine what causes this because of the input lock and everything on the screen locks up (except for as I said mouse motion). I have a GTX 970 and am using current Nvidia proprietary drivers.
——
jay_bowles2

Not something that has happened to me since the early days of Plasma5…. I wonder, are you using Nouveau or proprietary drivers? Also is this a new install?? Sometimes the desktop becomes very laggy (though I haven’t experienced your level of lag!) when files are being indexed. I would keep the terminal open and keep an eye on top to see if that helps identify any culprit.

T.J.

It sounds more like a Plasma issue to me. I’d try disabling the effects engine on startup – its an option under Effects. I’d logout and back in. I’d try that temporarily, repeating the same tasks to see if you freeze. It it still does, at least you know it is probably not your OpenGL driver and can look for other causes. Some KDE devs will blame the instabilities in Plasma on the OpenGL driver stack, and maybe there is some truth to it, but I suspect that Plasma itself is often the largest KDE issue.

I have given up on Plasma sessions and use a different manager session, even with KDE applications. Strangely enough, I have found GTK interfaces such as XFCE to be the most dependable. I just use qt4-qtconfig or qt5-qtconfig to force KDE/Qt apps to match my environment.

courtney2

I wound up doing a bug report on bugs.kde.org and it turns out this is a somewhat common bug. I tried disabling many things and using open source drivers, not using openGL for rendering, etc and it still stuck around. My solution was to install Kubuntu 16.04 which FINALLY installed on my hardware (installer was always crashing before). So now my problem is I have all these old configs for kubuntu 15.10, 15.10 with kde neon and 16.04 with kde neon, and I know one of those old configs is causing plasmashell to crash whenever I right click anything in the application launcher. Before I restored all my info to /home I didn’t have any issues and now that came up problem came up after the restore.

So far I’ve only deleted the ~/.kde directory and its contents and cleaned out ~/.cache but I’m not sure what else I should delete in ~/.local and ~/.config

courtney2

So the answer to my last issue was kind of tricky. I ended the plasmashell process and ran it in a terminal to get it to spit out the error to the command line. I found out that my weirdness has been caused by KActivity manager so I ended up removing this directory and its contents:
~/.local/share/kactivitymanagerd

Did a reboot and my issues went away
