It is possible using dconf, the key is org.gnome.Epiphany user-agent The default is empty, so this is probably why you see no UA string set there. You can also try gsettings set org.gnome.Epiphany user-agent "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/37.0.2049.0 Safari/537.36" by command line, should do the ...

The simplest way is to move the welcome page. Two things: Apache on Ubuntu 14.04 uses /var/www/html/ directory by default, so you can either start using that directory or change the Apache configuration to use /var/www. The default page is /var/www/html/index.html. Rename it to something else, like /var/www/html/apache-welcome.html.

Aura hasn't been push to beta. M34 initially was planned to have Aura, but it was decided that there were too many bugs (most likely among other reasons). M35 (currently on dev) does have Aura enabled. Part of the reason that they are switching to Aura is so that they have less code to maintain, fewer #ifdef's (code to compile on one OS, but not on the ...

An URL consists of not only an address, but also of a protocol. The latter is what the apps directory uses to open the Software Center. The link on the Gnome Schedule page points to apt://gnome-schedule. Your browser has been instructed to redirect apt:// links to the Software Center. In technical terms, the Software Center has been registered as a protocol ...

Why do you think browserLoadURL is a file in Linux sense of file? What is your reference to its existence in current versions of Firefox? If you read this from 2009, you'll see that it was a function (not a file): That particular function (BrowserLoadURL) is removed from browser.jar , so it is no longer possible the modify the BrowserLoadURL function to ...

Besides vi-like keybindings for browsing / navigation and lots of attendant features, it also provides both possibilities, you’ve asked. External editor for textareas and textboxes, which is GVim by default, can be launched by <C-i>. ...

It's not obvious from your screenshot which browser you use, but in Chrome I zoom in to about 175% to have things "fit to size". How far you need to zoom is dependent on your resolution, size of the monitor, the website itself, etc.: If you use Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/font-size-and-zoom-increase-size-of-web-pages If you use Chrome: ...

This is usually provided by OEMs, so unless they have a real interest in supporting flash, I don’t see that happening. Instead Ubuntu Touch is committed to providing a first-class HTML5 ...
