Chrome 40.0.2214.93-1 was released and the problem seems to be gone much better now. Similar symptoms still occur some times but much less frequently. It seems that this problem only affected started with the 40.0.2214.91-1 release. So if you're running that version do sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade to update to a more current version.

Got the same issue ever after the Chrome 40.0.2214.91 release, and though I haven't tried the .93, I can at least confirm the issue is 100% gone in Chrome 41 Beta. Strongly considering sticking to the beta until 41 becomes stable, or at least until it's 100% confirmed a point release fixed the issue.

I fixed it! I tried to reset unity from a text terminal (ctrl+alt+f1). It didn't work. Threw a dbus error. Couldn't open a terminal even with the shortcut after login. But later found that the guest account is working! So, I created a new admin user, logged in successfully and then reset unity. It worked!

The answer to show all key bindings in Ubuntu / Unity is: gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings | sort | more However Alt+F1 is not in there, meaning it's hard-coded in Unity and cannot be changed. (Sorry to be the harbinger of bad news)

So you've sudo apt-get remove --purge lubuntu* and apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-destkop already, but some of the CCSM you did before are probably still lingering around. So I would: Take a system back-up (Read this Q&a) Take a file backup (if your /home is on a separate partition) Go to TTY1 sudo apt-get purge ubuntu-desktop sudo apt-get purge ...

Gnome-shell does not use compiz but it's own compositor like KDE, but you can use compiz with gnome-fallback I believe. Unity is the only desktop enviroment that needs compiz, but that will change in the future.

Fn× handled by BIOS/Firmware or driver. Some vendors provide a way to customize them with limited options. If you are comparing with MS Windows, some vendors supplies tools with their binary drivers that can talk to BIOS some how. If it's handled by driver, See How do Fn keys work? or precisely Linux And Samsung Series 9 Laptop Fn Keys. Dell laptops ...

You have good question. And i confirm that i have same behaviour of Neg and OBS on Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS. Unfortunately, Compiz developement for Ubuntu stops after 10.04 LTS, so no any bug reports or feature requests about Compiz going to be solved anymore. Even worse, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and 14.04 LTS are lack of Compiz Color Filter, which will solve your task ...

I managed to fix this issue, so I'm posting the answer here in case anyone else has the same problem. According to someone on the internet, the NVIDIA drivers don't support xrandr (or at least not the current version). In order to change the resolution, I needed to use the "NVIDIA X Server Settings" GUI instead. The option is available on the "X SERVER ...

I have the exact same problem. Installed Compiz Settings Manager and Unity Tweak Tool because Unity was not responding properly. Consequence: Nothing shows, no dash, no bar, nothing... just a wallpaper and the mouse. I tried following this same post: Difference between Login in Ubuntu 14.04 tty1 and Initial Login I can't log in to tty1. It says my login ...

You can get access to a terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 (you can also use F2 to F6 instead of F1). Type in your username and password to get a bash shell (or which ever other shell you have). To reset your settings you can run: rm ~/.gconf ~/.gconfd ~/.metacity ~/.compiz-1 ~/.config/compiz-1 ~/.config/dconf -rf A alternate way to get the your shell from ...
