The background:I recently installed
conkyand configured it a little bit using some google search and some posts on Google+, which I don't think is the root cause of the problem below. I wrote a 1-line script
conky -c script_path
to run conky at start-up and added that script to "Start-up Applications".
- Whenever I log on, the Launcher appears at log-in screen, which was not the case before I did this.
- The main problem is the "shadow" of applications locked to the
launcherremain when I hover the mouse over the launcher. I know its difficult to imagine what I am saying, so I have included an image which describes my problem, please have a careful look over the image.
I use the following softwares:
Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit
HP 630 with 500 GB HDD and 4 GB DDRM, no graphics card
I love to play around, so please feel free to express your opinions as to what has to be done.
P.S.: When I try to log-in through
gnome-shell, I can see the launcher on the left, which I feel is unusual, though it is not "functional", meaning, clicking on the
applications do not open them.
