Normally it shouldn't affect your current desktop. But since it is unstable, if you are not an expert and if your computer is the one you use on a daily basis, I would highly recommend you not to install it. If you still install it, you can switch between your desktops on the login screen, clicking on the «Ubuntu» icon that is in the login field, next to ...

Open a terminal and run this commnd: sudo mv ~/Desktop/My\ Form.php /var/www Here's what you did wrong: i use: sudo mv My Form.php www in terminal sudo mv My Form.php mv "thinks" that there are two files: My and Form.php, therefore, the backslash before the space.

You need to put the filename inside "" doublequotes because your file has a space in his name and so it's seen as 2 separate file from the shell. You need either to issue sudo mv "My Form.php" /var/www or sudo mv My\ Form.php /var/www the backslash \ before the space is an escape character. Note that in Ubuntu (and -in general- under Linux) file path are ...

Hmm... do you really need the xDE on server? It's upto yours of course, but in my thoughts the server should not waste its resources for such things. Anyway, if you really want to lower its productivity, you may: apt-get install *-desktop where asterisk stands for ubuntu, xubuntu, gnome etc... Consult available repositories. To avoid significant ...

Just start the new program, resize and move it to where you want it to be overplayed (top right in your example), and then right click on it's title bar and click: Always On Top Always on Visible Workspace If this does not fulfill your requirements, and the problem is that ...

It may be a good idea to separate the underlying operating system from the desktop environment. There's an article at http://www.howtogeek.com/193129/how-to-install-and-use-another-desktop-environment-on-linux/ . I previously had installed Linux Mint Mate and then tried installing the Cinnamon Desktop Environment on top of that operating system, and got a ...

Yes, it is. It's the same OS, but looking other. Also, if you want to have GNOME (or other desktop environment - there are lots of them!) without installing system again it is possible and pretty easy. To see what desktop environments are available and how to install them you can head to What kinds of desktop environments and shells are available? .

"If there's any desktop version out there that supports this I'd be curious to know about it." I just recently switched from using lightdm to using gdm. I have not fully decided which one I prefer yet, and may yet go back to lightdm. One advantage of gdm: when you click on "Activities" at the top left hand corner, it shows not only your programs which you ...

I'm out on a limb here, but do you perchance have an X3500 or X4500 Intel card and an odd amount of RAM installed / unequal RAM sticks?

I had the same problem and I found a tentative (if not wholly perfect) solution here. Basically what I did was to install tasksel: sudo apt-get install tasksel Then run it: sudo tasksel Then deselect (using the space key) the entry "Ubuntu GNOME Desktop" and select "OK". It then uninstalled a host of packages, including some programs that I didn't expect ...
