View Full Version : [ubuntu] What is this?

March 18th, 2010, 09:53 PM
I've included a picture, but what I'm looking at live is a green, horizontal cursor that moves back and forth at the top of my desktop. What is it and how do I get rid of it? This was one of the things I came across after the 9.10 upgrade I did, I also lost sound, if you know anything about fixing that. This is my audio device: 00:10.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a2).

Thanks ahead of time. http://lh4.ggpht.com/_xGg5BmHbKI4/S6KSLbqMf5I/AAAAAAAAAGY/nlsLJf7aYO4/s800/Green_lines.png

Can you right-click and remove it? It should be attached to the panel. You can also try


int he terminal for specific options on all panels and applets that you have running.

Hi, thanks for the reply, but it's not the panel. I moved the panel to the bottom of the screen and those lines are still there. Any other ideas as to what the lines might be?

Someone had similar situation here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1417071&highlight=green+line (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1417071&highlight=green+line)
and solved it by booting into recovery mode and repairing broken packages.
