View Full Version : [ubuntu] top taskbar problem and compiz/GTK

January 21st, 2010, 04:27 AM
Well I am fairly new to Linux. Coming from windows everything takes some getting used to, but Linux seems pretty simple so far. I have two problems that I can not fix on my own though and need a little help.

I run in the resolution of 1920x1080. The taskbar at the top should have all of my icons/username on the right side, but instead the appear in the middle as if I was running in 1024x768. I think the problem is that I run dual monitors for windows (not needed for linux) and the smaller monitor has a max resolution of 1024x768. I have the second one disabled, but it is not disabled when booting up or logging in. Does anyone know of a way to disable the smaller monitor completely or at least fix the taskbar? If I unplug the monitor before booting everything looks normal, but that is too big of a hassle since I use windows more than Ubuntu (Sorry I'm a big gamer :P). Here is a screenshot of what I am talking about.

The second problem is with Emerald Theme Manager. For some reason it only decorates the top bar of windows and the buttons, but nothing else. The windows retain the theme from GTK Window decorator. Maybe I am missing something here but I have been searching for the solution for a couple days now and can't find anything. Here is a screenshot of custom theme from Emerald that I have installed and the window/taskbar at the top keeping the human theme from GTK.

Thanks for any help :D I look forward to working with Linux a lot more and hopefully helping others some day.

Sorry to bump myself but I still can't find a solution to my problem and it is getting annoying. Any help would be appreciated.
