    Folders just dissapear whanever.

    Folders just disappear whenever, on it's own.

    If I open the trash folder icon, they reappear.


    Am I doing something simple to make the disappear, but unknown to me?


    I have 4 workspaces and they are not on any of them when it happens.

    I'm wondering if it is related to the boot up issue I have where no icons show up at all and I have to reboot over and over until it all comes up like it should.
    Right now I do not shut down unless I have to, but just hibernate.

    Click the folder icon on the left TWICE to view all open file browser windows.

    Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric)
    Kernel 3.0.0-32-generic


    "Click the folder icon on the left TWICE to view all open file browser windows"

    What folder icon?

    The tool bar to the left?

    I am talking about all the desk top icons for everything, pictures, documents, folders and all just disappear until I go to the left hidden toolbar, it pops up and I double click the trash folder opening it.

    11.10 eh?

    Oneric had a problem when upgrading from 11.04.

    You may need to reset your themes back to

    ubuntu-mono-light/dark
    You can then reinstall the theme/icon set you prefer.

    I do remember doing them so should be able to find my way back there to do it.

    Also, the upper border on firefox (when on line) is the Matrix green scrolling symbols, and for a long time now they just sit there like a photo.


    When they were first installed, it scrolled down.
    Now it only scrolls if I boot into safe mode.


    Any ideas on that one as well?

    Where can I find the ubuntu-mono-light/dark?

    I can't find it in system tools or system settings.

    I now can only boot in recovery mode as I get the music but it does not progress past the purple screen and other than the cursor being able to move, it is a dead screen.

    If you previously installed

    gnome tweak tool
    or

    advanced settings
    then use that.

    11.10 reached end of life on may 9th., so not sure how well anything is going to work.

    It will no longer get updates.

    As far as the advanced settings app.
    Failed to download package files.

    My daughter still uses 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx).
    She suggests I just keep using that version because it is solid for someone who is inexperienced.
